LIONEL PODCAST: Donald Trump’s Huge Boner

This is worth stating. Boner is defined as a clumsy or stupid mistake. Inter alia, that is! And indubitably, Donald Trump pulled a boner. But let’s look at this further.

It’s not the first time. On “Face the Nation,” in 2010 retired Gen. Wesley Clark challenged John McCain’s “war hero status” as a qualification though, albeit, not as horribly tone deaf as DT’s.

“He has been a voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee. And he has traveled all over the world. But he hasn’t held executive responsibility. That large squadron in the Navy that he commanded — that wasn’t a wartime squadron,” Clark said.

“I don’t think getting in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to become president.”

In fact, Chris Rock may have authored Trump’s line. The comparison value is subject to debate. One’s a retired General, the other a comic. But the meme that’s being presented is that it’s part of the social intercourse, er, conversation.

The line referenced may have originated in Obama-supporting comedian Chris Rock’s HBO special during the 2008 election.

“He a war hero. He a war hero,” Rock said of McCain. “He a war hero that got CAPTURED. There’s a lot of guys in jail that got captured. I don’t want to vote for nobody that got captured. I want to vote for the motherfucker that got away.” 

But they say a picture’s worth a thousand words. I say a million words. Why has DT missed completely this connection? How, in the name of Zeus, did he miss this mention?

ISIS claims some of the Jihadists in this photo are members. The man on the far left is FSA Khalid al-Hamad, the notorious “Cannibal Jihadist” who had himself videotaped eating a human heart. It has also been reported that Khalid al-Hamad called his unit the “Osama Bin Laden Brigade.” Address that, DT!
