Donald Trump, at a rally in southern Ohio Tuesday night, showed the American people and the world that he’s a dumbass while at the same time giving terrorists exactly what they want: fear. Trump, following the mantra that has gotten Republics effectively elected since 9/11, told the crowd of Muslim hating, fear-mongering bigots how horrible our country is and why we need to be the disgusting international thugs we were under George W. Bush once again.
“We can’t do waterboarding but they can do chopping off heads, drowning people in steel cages, they can do whatever they want to do,” Trump told attendees at a St. Clairsville, Ohio rally. “You know, you have to fight fire with fire.”
At least 36 people were killed and over 140 were wounded in multiple suicide bombings at one of the world’s busiest airports. Turkish officials have said Islamic State fighters were likely responsible for the attack.
“Folks, there’s something going on that’s really really bad,” Trump said at the rally. “All right? It’s bad. And we better get smart and we better get tough or we’re not going to have much much a country left, okay? It’s bad. Terrible.”
Trump asked the crowd what they thought about waterboarding, a form of simulated drowning that was banned by George W. Bush’s administration in 2006.
“I like it a lot,” he said to cheers from the crowd. “I don’t think it’s tough enough.”
That’s your presumptive nominee, Republicans. He may as well be waving an ISIS flag and handing out recruitment forms.
