Trump The Clown

Donald Trump recently addressed an organization called AIPAC.

AIPAC stands for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee; it is the most powerful pro Israel lobbying advocacy group in the United States. It's agenda includes continuous efforts to ensure U.S military aid to Israel, and a sharp focus on limiting Iran's nuclear program.

At the conference, when talking about the Iran nuclear deal, Trump said: "I've studied this issue in great detail. I would say actually greater by far than anybody else," and the audience laughed.

They laughed right in Donald Trump's face.

That is because these are educated, intelligent people. People who are well versed in international politics and especially knowledgeable about the Iran nuclear deal, because of its ominous implications for Israel.

These are not people who drive pickup trucks with two large American flags stuck in the frame of the truck bed. They are not people who respond to hateful words, bluffing, and sizzle over substance.

The beauty of this is that Trump, or his people, worked on a speech. He did not speak off the cuff as he usually does.

He read from a teleprompter, which he never does.

He tried to appear "Presidential."

Instead, he came off as a clown.

Which is what he is.
