Donald Trump’s unlikely presidential bid stopped being a joke for people to poke fun at a long time ago. As the NY Times recently noted in an analysis of his violent rhetoric, “The dark power of words has become the defining feature of Mr. Trump’s bid for the White House to a degree rarely seen in modern politics, as he forgoes the usual campaign trappings — policy, endorsements, commercials, donations — and instead relies on potent language to connect with, and often stoke, the fears and grievances of Americans.”
As a result, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said that Trump’s language is “disqualifying,” and Republicans who are “afraid” to agree shouldn’t be president either. Earnest didn’t actually say that Trump was disqualified, but Twitter didn’t care.
They are already throwing him a disqualifying party, and it’s glorious.
