They say that fame is fleeting, and the recent actions of Donald Trump prove that statement to be most accurate. Just when he was gaining traction for a possible run for the presidency he opened his mouth one time too many and uttered several F-Bombs before a Las Vegas audience.
On top of that, he was embarrassed at the Washington Press Correspondents Dinner by Saturday Night Live comedian Seth Meyers and President Obama pre-empted his highly rated NBC Celebrity Apprentice program with the announcement that Osama Bin Laden had been killed. It was almost a simultaneous killing of Trump’s run for the White House.
Adding insult to injury is the fact that Trump will now not be the driver of the Indianapolis 500 Pace Car, which would have given him the much needed publicity to feed his larger than life ego. “The Donald” cannot blame anyone but himself, because he could not stay on point without getting crude and vulgar. The American public will accept his antics, but when it comes to off-color language they themselves frequently use, Trump was rejected like a hot potato.
Trump has raised many important questions that the American electorate is asking, but it is now for some other politician to determine a way to get Obama to respond. The people deserve answers before the next election, but in the meantime Americans will shed no tears for “The Donald.”
