14 dead and 21 wounded . . .
Well on his way to Making America Great Again, Donald Trump continues to amaze. Armed with an I-am-the-greatest opinion of himself, he regularly announces simple solutions to vexing problems. Hell, yes, we’re going to torture suspects for information, even if it doesn’t yield reliable information. We’re going to do it because they are bad people who did bad things and they deserve it. You bet we’re going to kill the families of ISIS jihadists because that’s the only way we’re going to defeat them and make America great again.
Yesterday, Trump disclosed that he has another impressive skill. He’s a mind reader. He told reporters that Syed Rizwan Farook’s mother and sister “knew what was going on” inside the apartment in which he and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, stored an arsenal of guns, bullets and homemade pipebombs. How does he know that? He watched her interview.
Do these statements mean that if he were president he would order the FBI to arrest, waterboard and kill Syed Rizwan Farook’s mother and sister to defeat ISIS and make America great again?
Think about it.
