Yes, it's his charisma! Donald Trump has charisma. At the last debate, Donald Trump stood masterfully like an elephant between a Chihuahua and the Canadian Mr. Sleaze.
Editor's note: Isn't Canadian Mr. Sleaze an oxymoron?
Looks more like an epiphany.
Anyway, while the Chihuahua kept snapping at the elephant's heels, and Mr. Sleaze attempted to wrap himself as the debate prosecutor by insisting, "Answer yes or no." Trump continued, chin up, to present his case as a staunch conservative, deal maker, businessman and the candidate promising to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House.
The governor from Ohio, also at the debate, insisted he was the only Republican on the stage with executive experience in government. However, judging from his off balanced haircut, (Was it self-inflicted with clippers or that blow-flow device sold on television years ago?) the guy just didn't look presidential. He didn't even look governor-ish.
Pull the string and the Chihuahua repeated that Donald Trump got two hundred million from his father and if he hadn't he'd be selling watches in Time Square today. Trump says it was only one million. Pull the string and the Chihuahua repeated himself. And it wasn't a burp.
By contrast, Mr. Sleaze likes to emphasize his humble beginnings, saying his father came to this country with one hundred dollars hidden in his underwear.
Yikes! At least he didn't say up his kazoo.
While dad surely advanced to a wallet, it does prove a degree of practical knowledge about the limitations of pickpockets in this golden land of opportunity.
Dr. Ben Carson must have said something eloquent during the debate, but the gentleman is simply too elegant for that crowd. Visions of the man waking in the middle of the night in a cold sweat and asking, "What the hell am I doing running for the White House with those clowns?"
Next day, the Chihuahua suggested Mr. Trump wet his pants during the debate.
Merely your every day throw away line about a presidential opponent.
Just about now, ISIS is shrugging away any interest in the United States.
It's their epiphany.
