Starring Donald Trump as “Airwolf”

Trump 2016 announcement
Do you remember “Airwolf”? “Airwolf” was the Donald P. Bellasario-produced television series for CBS that ran from 1984 through 1987. Airwolf itself was a high-tech, well-armed, supersonic helicopter flown by the show’s protagonists to tip the Cold War to America’s advantage. I was a big fan of “Airwolf.” Even as a teenager, I knew that Airwolf was simply a high concept idea – a total work of fiction. Even then, I knew that the laws of physics prohibit a wingless helicopter from ever achieving true supersonic speed post-Mach 1. Any helicopter flying faster than 250 mph would disintegrate its own rotors, which would doom it to crash and burn. That brings me to billionaire Donald Trump – who on Tuesday officially declared himself as a 2016 Republican presidential candidate. Ladies and gentleman, put your hands together for the show… starring Donald Trump as “Airwolf.”
Trump became the third GOP presidential hopeful for 2016 who has no political experience whatsoever. He joined Carly Fiorina and Dr. Ben Carson in that regard.
Trump’s announcement on Tuesday from Trump Tower in New York City was political theater of the first order. Here is how he began: “Wow. Whoa. That is some group of people. Thousands. So nice, thank you very much. That’s really nice. Thank you. It’s great to be at Trump Tower. It’s great to be in a wonderful city, New York. And it’s an honor to have everybody here. This is beyond anybody’s expectations. There’s been no crowd like this. Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them. When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say, China in a trade deal? They kill us. I beat China all the time. All the time. When did we beat Japan at anything? They send their cars over by the millions, and what do we do? When was the last time you saw a Chevrolet in Tokyo? It doesn’t exist, folks. They beat us all the time. When do we beat Mexico at the border? They’re laughing at us, at our stupidity. And now they are beating us economically. They are not our friend, believe me. But they’re killing us economically. The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.”
Here’s Trump on Mexico: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.” Say what?
Here’s Trump throwing red meat to the Republican base: “I will immediately terminate President Obama’s illegal executive order on immigration, immediately.
Fully support and back up the Second Amendment. End Common Core – it is a disaster. Nobody would be tougher on ISIS than Donald Trump. Nobody. I will find the guy that’s going to take that military and make it really work. Nobody, nobody will be pushing us around. We got nuclear weapons that are obsolete. I’m using my own money. I’m not using the lobbyists. I’m not using donors. I don’t care. I’m really rich. We have to repeal Obamacare, and it can be – and it can be replaced with something much better for everybody. Let it be for everybody. I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created. I tell you that.”
Trump threw his fellow Republican presidential candidates under a speeding transfer truck headed downside with no brakes: “I’ve been on the circuit making speeches, and I hear my fellow Republicans. I like them. And they don’t talk jobs and they don’t talk China. But all of these politicians that I’m running against now, they’re trying to disassociate. I mean, you looked at Bush, it took him five days to answer the question on Iraq. He didn’t know. I said, ‘Is he intelligent?’ Then I looked at Rubio. He was unable to answer the question, is Iraq a good thing or bad thing? He didn’t know. How are these people gonna lead us?”
Trump concluded: “Sadly, the American dream is dead. But if I get elected president, I will bring it back bigger and better and stronger than ever before.”
“The Donald” seems hellbent on taking down the GOP – win or lose. Who would Trump’s running mate be? His mirror?
The man totally has no filter.
Oh, just this in: Trump’s crowd was filled with professional actors. He paid them $50 apiece for 3 hours work. There’s no business like show business, right?
Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign is like a supersonic helicopter – it won’t fly. It’s Trump as “Airwolf.”
