The LA Times published a “short list” of individuals and groups that Donald Trump has insulted during his presidential campaign. Sure, it’s not abnormal for presidential candidates to fire some charged words and phrases at each other in person or via campaign ads, but it seems to come almost as second nature for Trump to spout off something horrendous.
Despite his repugnant personality, Trump still manages to get support from some of the American people. Most recently, he won the Republican primary in New Hampshire.
I won’t lie to you, I love my fair share of insults. But when someone is trying to win the love of our country and become our first leader, he probably shouldn’t be insulting the Catholic leader, Muslims and other historically marginalized groups. I guess there are enough people in the U.S. who are just as unclassy as Trump is.
Trump’s short list is far from finished. I’ve started making bets with my dad on who Trump is going to insult next. Cuba or Cubans — now that Obama made the announcement that he’ll visit the island country — are a possibility.
Honestly, no one is safe from Trumps insults. I know he’s just trying to garner media attention — and I don’t know why the media is giving it to him — but this unorthodox practice is wildly amusing. 2016 might be one of the most exciting and baffling years for presidential elections.
