A Grotesque Embarrassment To Us All

Donald Trump embarrassed not only himself yesterday, but also our entire nation.  To our Scottish friends, I would like to humbly apologize for this man, his vulgarity, his utter stupidity and his very existence.  (Though his mother was actually born in Scotland … just saying).  What now, you ask?  Well ….

Donald Trump flew to Scotland to promote a golf course his company purchased on the country’s southwestern coast.  His timing was incredibly horrible, and his agenda included no meetings with government or political leaders, but was strictly for his business concerns.  “Traditionally, nominees travel overseas during this period to brush up their foreign policy depth and visit 10 Downing Street and Israel — for politics back here,” said Scott W. Reed, senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. “Everyone knows this is the wrong thing for the nominee to be doing now, and it is amazing this can’t be stopped.”

Though he has said publicly that he is relying more on his children to run the Trump Organization, he remains closely tied to it and does not like to be away from it for long.  Um … I wonder, in the unlikely event that he was to become president, when he might find time to actually run the United States?

And all that for what?  For him to embarrass us.  Yep, he opened his mouth and it came out Stupid.  No surprise there.  Here is his Twitter message:

Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!

5:21 AM – 24 Jun 2016

The problem with this is that Scotland voted overwhelmingly to stay in the EU, not to leave!  Trump did not even know this!  Some of the replies to his message:

You are a fucking moron.

Scotland voted IN you moron

Scotland voted Remain, you weapons-grade plum.

Once again, Trump shows that he is a greedy, self-centered, ignorant, tone-deaf moron

Trump’s excitement about Brexit & the accompanying market crash make more sense if you recall how much he made off American misery in 2008.

No games! tweeted the goof who flew his Secret Service protection 3,000 miles to watch him talk about GOLF.

flagNow, the Scottish people did not seem too thrilled to have a visit from Trump.  One actually raised a Mexican flag high in the air in view of his golf course, saying it was a ‘sign of solidarity for the Mexican people.”  As Trump arrived at the ninth hole of his new Scotland golf course for a press conference, he was interrupted by a protester, who was swiftly removed as Trump shouted at him to “Go get a job and a haircut”.  Perhaps Donnie forgot he was a visitor to another country?  He certainly forgot the rules of etiquette for being a guest.  One Scottish resident identified only as Jill said “Och, he’s a maniac! Horrible man. I would hate to think that anyone would really feel like that about other people, but listen to what comes out of his mouth, about Mexicans, Muslims, women …”

The people of the UK have been stressing, understandably, over the Brexit vote and it was no doubt the main thing on their minds.  Scotland voted to stay in the EU, but the overall UK vote was to leave, so no doubt the Scottish people were not happy and were in no mood for the shenanigans of the braying ass. So, other than his stupid twitter message, what did Donnie have to say about Brexit (you will remember that a couple of weeks ago he didn’t even know what Brexit was)?  Very little, as it turns out.  He quickly twisted his speech to … well … himself and his golf course, of course.  “As you know I own Doonbeg in Ireland, a phenomenal hotel. One of the most beautiful hotels. One of the most highly rated hotels in all of Europe and it’s got a golf course on this large almost 500-acre parcel of land, on the Atlantic Ocean, and does great. I own Turnberry. I own Aberdeen.”  I just want to cover my head and hide in shame.

Despite his Scottish ancestry, Donald Trump made a huge fool of himself on his visit to Scotland.  The really sad part is that it appears he is blissfully unaware of how utterly stupid he looked, and what an embarrassment he was to the nation he was hoping to represent.  I would not blame Scotland one bit if they banned him from ever entering the country again!  Hey!  Perhaps they should build a wall and …. make Trump Enterprises pay for it!

  1. Oh dear. I think he is not the most popular man in Scotland at the moment… Should the Scottish separate from Great Britain, I am sure he would not be invited – even if he got himself elected (which I still hope won’t happen!).
