I See Dumb People

I stopped lining up for M. Knight Shyamalan movies after "Signs." Once it became pretty clear that his thing was to have a twist at the end of each of his tales, it made the twist less entertaining. It became, to me, annoying. You mean that village is really next to a highway where all these modern-day Luddites have raised themselves up a generation of kiddies living in fear of that world outside the woods? I never would have seen that coming, except that it has that "M. Knight" at the front of it and I wouldn't expect anything else as a result. This may be the best way I can explain my reaction to Donald Trump(sic).
Why would I be surprised by anything that comes out of that roiling sewer of a mouth? How could I not anticipate that each new verbal salvo will be more offensive than the last? When he was just a reality TV host and guest on Howard Stern's radio show he was a buffoon. He gets big points with his orange Kool-Aid swilling followers for "telling it like it is." Maybe that's the hair dye talking, but "telling it like it is" should not be confused with "saying whatever comes into that atrophied stem of a brain. "There has to be some form of punishment" for women who have abortions is only the most recent example of how vile and idiotic things just dribble off this guy's tongue. 
Outrage was heard on all fronts, including those on the "Pro Life" front: Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that opposes abortion, joined the chorus of people condemning Trump. “Let us be clear,” Dannenfelser said in a statement. “Punishment is solely for the abortionist who profits off of the destruction of one life and the grave wounding of another.”
Why would anyone, at this point, have any questions about how incredibly out of touch Mister Trumpway is with women and women's issues? Why would anyone expect that he would do anything but support his campaign manager after he was accused of battery on a female reporter? This is the guy who offered to pay the legal fees of any of his angry rabble who might end up punching, pepper spraying or otherwise harming those who might speak against their Oompa Loompa God
What sort of outrage was stirred by Donald Trumpty when he reversed his idiotic position just hours after he was ready to punish women who had abortions? Well, let's just say that I wasn't surprised to find out that Bruce Willis was dead all along. That's what all those clues were about. Trumpadump's handlers explained it away as "a simple error in speaking." Simple? As simple as the suggestion that he should simply stop speaking.
