Either the truth hurst or it sets you free. Nikki Johnson-Huston on The Donald’s consistent string of verbal blunders and why they won’t matter.
The most outrageous thing Donald Trump has said isn’t about illegal Mexican immigrants being rapists or making a veiled reference to Megyn Kelly’s menstrual cycle. If you’re still talking about those things then the wool is still being pulled over your eyes.
I get it though. Those statements were offensive and inflammatory. That’s the type of thing that pushes our buttons so we must react unequivocally and with force. Those statements hit at the pillars of social justice that we guard without exception. Plus, look at the source. If Donald Trump is anything, it is surely bombastic and obtrusive.
But those are not the worst things taking place in American political discourse. This is Trump telling the truth.
I will tell you that our system is broken. I gave to many people. Before this, before two months ago, I was a businessman. I give to everybody. When they call, I give. And you know what? When I need something from them, two years later, three years later, I call them. They are there for me. And that’s a broken system.
