Trump, the anti-PC candidate, melts when critics use the F-word

Donald Trump’s supporters love him, in part, because he doesn’t have time for political correctness. In his telling, he needs to say what he’s going to say, and we need to be okay with it, because our country is a mess. Not only is policing language slowing us down, he says, it’s tearing us apart.

Unless you say something he doesn’t like. Then your language had better be spot-on.

In an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos published yesterday, former Mexican President Vicente Fox said of Trump’s plan to build a big, beautiful wall and make Mexico pay for it, “I’m not going to pay for that f***ing wall. He should pay for it.”

Like a four year-old who just lost a toy, Trump melted down.


In last night’s debate, Trump repeated his complaint:

[The wall] just got 10 feet taller. I saw him make that — I saw him make the statement. I saw him use the word that he used. I can only tell you, if I would have used even half of that word, it would have been national scandal.

This guy used a filthy, disgusting word on television, and he should be ashamed of himself, and he should apologize, OK? Number one. Number two, we have a trade deficit with Mexico of $58 billion a year. And that doesn’t include all the drugs that are pouring across and destroying our country.

As one might imagine, Donald Trump is no stranger to using, ahem, the F-Word on the campaign trail. Here’s him in 2011, around the time he was flirting with the idea of running in the Republican primary that cycle:

And let’s not forget the time that he called Ted Cruz a pussy on stage — for not supporting torture as hard as Trump does — and then defended it by saying he was only repeating what someone in the audience said.

Trump is running as the candidate who will say whatever’s on his mind because America. But when someone else says what’s on their mind, and it happens to conflict with his politics, he melts into a puddle.

And people think this guy’s an “alpha” male.

    I remember hearing someone define “wimp” as a man who lives in fear of being called a wimp. the Donald is a wimp.

    On the other hand, Vincente Fox is corporatist scum and if not worse than, then certainly no better than Trump. A lot of Mexico’s current problems can be traced to Fox.

    A thought on the right wing’s use of “politically correct”: They’ve just redefined it, in their own dog whistle manner, to mean “socially acceptable.” That’s at the root of their complaints about “political correctness” — their ideas are repellent to normal, decent people, who of course reject them, which is really nothing more than the operation of the free marketplace of ideas, which the right hates.

    Bill Maher did an excellent skit at the end of his show on Friday about what it would be like if Trump were President. He also showed clips of Trump cursing and showing what a hypocrite, liar, mealy-mouthed child, Trump really is

  6. 2karmanot says:

    That is my thinking also. Trump, for all his gaseous bloviating doesn’t impress me as very manly. His denigration of women, his petulant, whiny demeanor and what appears to be an excessive ignorant immaturity do not seem qualities suited for leadership of the American Ship of State. But then our leaky old S.O.S. and it’s marginal democracy has so been so weakened by Republican anarchists it might finally sink under the leadership of a Clown Nut that could have been invented by Steven King…… Not to mention that First ‘Lady’ Melania’s lady parts have been all but exposed to the world in her former ‘modeling career.

    Yo, Trumpenfuhrer… Go F’k yo-self! and have a nice day….

    Go forth and fornicate with thyself, Donald.

    You could be right.

    Bernie doesn’t seem to get hot under the collar. Hillary’s composure during 11 hours of hostile Republican interrogation by the Benghazi committee is another case in point. I think Trump would certainly crack and fall apart if he were facing either Bernie or Hillary in a debate.

  11. BeccaM says:

    I hear ya. I see an avowed Trump supporter and come to one of two not mutually exclusive conclusions: (1) They are too fucking stupid to be someone I would want to know or be friends with and/or (2) they are simply despicable people who I also would never want to count among my friends or acquaintances.

    Either way, it’s a sure-fire judge of a person’s intelligence, character, decency and morals…or in this case, the complete lack thereof.

  12. goulo says:

    I hope the latter, but I confess I find myself unable to grok the mentality in the first place of any undecided person who decides “Yes, Trump is the one I want for president”. :/

    If many undecided people have become Trump supporters already in the past few months, despite – or because of – his crude anger and petulant arrogance, why would just one more example of Trump being Trump have some different effect on them this time?

  13. BeccaM says:

    You’re right, but on the other hand, do you think Trump’s latest online meltdown will win him more supporters? Or just further convince more of the undecided people he’s nothing but a petulant short-fingered vulgarian?

  14. marknc says:

    I think he is just mad that somebody else would use his word. He’ll probably sue Fox (not the news one of course) for Copyright infringement.

  15. goulo says:

    Yet it probably made no dent in the inexplicable adoration of his faithful supporters. For them, it was probably just Trump as usual showing his anger and aggression at a foreign leader, yay, woohoo.

  16. BeccaM says:

    With that and with Trump’s visible flailing several times during last night’s public clusterfuck (aka ‘GOP debate’), I’m beginning to think the pressure is getting to him.

    Remember, for the malignant narcissist, the most vulnerable part about them is their ego. Former President Vicente Fox didn’t just defy Trump’s impossible border wall boast, he did so in the most aggressively dismissive way possible. And let’s unpack that just a little: This wasn’t even the current Mexican president (who is actually Enrique Nieto), but a former one, which makes Fox a mere private citizen free to speak his mind on any issue he likes.

    Petulantly demanding an apology from a former world leader — over the use of a single vulgar word that many, many people use — is just about the weakest fucking thing a politician can do. Then to double-down on that last night and whine that the wall America isn’t going to pay for just got ten feet taller is still more evidence Trump’s psyche is beginning to crack.

    Yes, absolutely, the man is a master of bullying and public ridicule. But his skin is tissue-thin and his ego as fragile as lead crystal — and those will be his undoing.

    He’s definitely not an alpha. he’s a beta who is aggressive. An alpha never needs to push anything because he (or she) doesn’t have to. They do what they do and people fall all over themselves to follow. A beta person has to be pushy, has to be loud, has to be obnoxious or no one would even know they existed.
