Trump Gaffes becoming an art form

Scan_20160222Ever since realizing his gaffes have gained him popularity at each spouting, Donald Trump has been busy hiring a staff of professional gaffe-writers to come up with new politically incorrect, insulting, and/or offensive blurbs for him to rattle off during upcoming rallies.  Most of the gaffe-writers have come from failed TV sitcoms.  But Trump has warned that a good gaffe is not the same as a bad joke…so do not use any previously failed punch lines, and pawn them off as political gaffes.  Cleverness is important.

Clearly, Mr. Trump has turned his apparent verbal fumbles into an art form, but an art form that apparently only he is able to pull off.  Others have tried, but invariably only look like nincompoops…then becoming double-nincompoops when they try to re-spin their failed artwork.

“It’s a naturally born talent,” Trump commented at a Gamblers Anonymous fundraiser in Vegas…throwing another log on the fire of whether some of his opponents are naturally born citizens or not.  “It’s like trying to teach an illegal immigrant from Cuba how to play hockey for the Calgary Flames.”  That drew hisses and boos from the crowd in the basement of Caesars.  But it was certain to gain him at least 2 poll percentage points in the Nevada Caucus, poll experts agreed.
