STATES CHRONICLE – The presidential run of 2016 is bound to be one of the most exciting in recent history. And with Donald Trump digging himself deeper apparently every time he opens his mouth (or Twitter account), it’s no surprise that he’s made himself some enemies. For example, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos offered to send Donald Trump to space.
As the multi billionaire spreads his vendetta against pretty much everyone and everything that don’t agree with his campaign, he’s gaining more and more notoriety. And apparently his ire doesn’t stop with the people who actively comment on his endeavors, but he also makes unwarranted attacks against people who spoke no evil about him.
He’s been attacking online an increasing number of women lately. After more recently picking on Rosie O’Donnell and Megyn Kelly, the former ‘The Apprentice’ host went after Ronda Rousey.
After she lost her championship fight last week, Donald posted on his Twitter account that he’s glad she lost and got beaten, and that she isn’t a nice person, both jabs apparently coming from nowhere.
He then proceeded on Monday night to pick a fight with Amazon and The Washington Post, calling the newspaper a scam and Jeff Bezos’ tax shelter. He also called the Amazon CEO’s financial skills into question, saying that his company isn’t very profitable.
The owner of the newspaper and electronic commerce company responded to the tweets, and his fifth Twitter post ever was an instant success. He acknowledged finally being trashed by the multibillionaire and offers him a trip to space on his Blue Origin rocket. He also created one of the most used hash tags recently, #sendDonaldtospace.
Trump has yet to respond to the Amazon CEO’s invitation, and if we’re to make an educated guess based on his Twitter activities so far, he probably won’t.
Why the presidential candidate is doing everything in his power to make the world hate him is anyone’s guess.
Perhaps he found himself in one of those movie situations where his new campaign manager has him pulling increasingly ridiculous stunts, and just when it seems like he hit rock bottom he’ll save a drowning child, or a kitten from tree, and everyone will just forget about his xenophobic and offensive ways and just vote for him.
And of course he’ll win by a landslide, because we all like the underdog.
Wait, is Donald Trump trying to become the underdog by slowly losing it on TV? That’s worth looking into.
