Trump "Unfit To Be Human": Commentators Unleash Personal Attacks On "Mothaf---a", "Psychopath"

Tyler Durden's picture

This weekend the ad hominem attacks against Donald Trump took a sharp escalation when first a former Obama advisor, then a republican commentator, following by entertainment stars took sharp shots at the republican candidate.

It started with David Plouffe, Obama's former campaign manager, who during NBC's "Meet the Press" show, called Donald Trump "a psychopath." Plouffe told Chuck Todd that "we have a psychopath running for president. I mean, he meets the clinical definition, OK?"

After Todd pushed back that Plouffe isn't a psychologist and that such claims frustrate voters, Plouffe elaborated, "The grandiose notion of self-worth, pathological lying, lack of empathy and remorse. So I think he does; right, I don't have a degree in psychology."

Plouffe opined that the race is already unwinnable for Trump because, he said, Hillary Clinton is guaranteed 269 electoral votes, including those from Virginia and Colorado. "There's maybe a 20 percent chance it's close — 2 or 3 points; I think it's likely going to be a landslide," he said. While attacking Trump Plouffe naturally defended Clinton, saying there are "legitimate questions" about conflicts of interest at the Clinton Foundation. But he said the charity shouldn't shut down, because it does great work.

Then it was the turn of republican commentator, and former supporter of Jeb Bush, Ana Navarro who also on Sunday said Trump is worse than just unfit to be president.  "Forget being unfit to be president. He's unfit to be human," Navarro said on ABC, when talking about the controversy regarding the GOP nominee's tweet about the death of Dwyane Wade's cousin.

"Was he raised by wolves? Who has that as a first reaction upon somebody's death?" On Saturday, Trump faced backlash for his tweet about Nykea Aldridge, the cousin of a basketball player who was caught in crossfire and shot in the head and arm when leaving a school in Chicago.

"Dwyane Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!" he tweeted. Navarro, a former supporter of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, also addressed Trump's immigration policies, noting the GOP nominee can change his words, but you "can't change a person's heart."

"Hispanics are not going to forget Judge Curiel," she said, referring to the Indiana-born judge presiding over a Trump-involved lawsuit. Trump repeatedly charged that the judge, who is Mexican-American, could not be impartial because of his heritage.  "African-Americans are not going to forget that he started the birther movement. I don't think Jewish folks forget the anti-Semitic ad against Hillary Clinton," she continued.

"The problem that Donald Trump has is that most humans have a memory. And we're not going to forget it within one week." Navarro tweeted on Sunday she stands by what she said.

The torrent of personal attacks continued when entertainer Ice Cube made it clear he won't support Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.  "I will never endorse a mothafucka like Donald Trump! EVER!!!" the rapper tweeted on Saturday.

Ice Cube's tweet was reportedly a response to a tweet by the "Trump News Global" account that featured a video of an April interview with the rapper, according to the New York Daily News. The tweet said Ice Cube was endorsing Trump, using an image of the artist. In the video interview, Ice Cube said Trump is what American's love and aspire to be.

"Rich, powerful, do what you want to do, say what you want to say, be how you want to be," he said in the video. "That's kind of been like the American dream. So, he looks like a boss to everybody and Americans love to have a boss, so you know, that's his appeal to me."

He went on to criticize Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for her use of the term "super-predators." But though he criticized the Democratic nominee, he made clear Sunday he's not endorsing Trump.

* * *

Finally, actor Don Cheadle added to the criticism of Donald Trump Saturday, after the GOP presidential nominee tweeted about the death of Nykea Aldridge, the cousin of a basketball player who was caught in crossfire and shot in the head and arm while leaving a school in Chicago.  "Dwayne [sic] Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!" he tweeted, misspelling the athlete's name. 

The black actor responded with a harshly worded tweet.

It is unclear whether these escalating ad hominem attacks are part of Trump's electoral strategy, or merely the continued devolution of the 2016 presidential campaign into the most memorable spectacle in US history.

Democracy US style. And they wage wars to impose this crap on other nations ?????? !!!!!!!!

Hitlery must be losing badly in the real unpublished polls for the Democrats to sink even lower in the sewer.

OutaTime43's picture

Enough with the "real unpublished" polls.  These are the correct polls.  She's up by about 4-6 points.  She already has enough of an electoral count to win per state polls.  Not saying they can't change but he'd better move more to the center and win those debates or he's going to lose. 

TeamDepends's picture

No, enough with the MSM idiot-box, and the peons who lap up every statistic it spews out and believes them to be "true", "unbiased". Your brain is turning to mush pal, TURN IT OFF!!!

Latina Lover's picture

You really need to study Poll methodologies to really understand how they are manipulated. Over sampling from known democratic voters is one method. Another is to exclude 3rd party candidates such as Jill Stein, who are most likely to bleed off democratic votes. 

Believe what you want. The MSM lies endlessly. If Trump were doing so poorly, why did Hillary come out with her grand conspiracy theory that Putin is manipulating the election in favor of Trump?  This is not how a front runner acts. They are desperate.

OutaTime43's picture

That's true that there are variations. When you look at the 4-way results, the spread tightens a little.  They are still far enough apart to be significant; even with the other two candidates listed.

I would have to say that if I were putin I would try to sway the election away from hillery. I do not believe putin likes the thought of ww3 if clinton is elected. All of clintons supporters better think trice about supporting someone that will get them killed.

Just like every other RINO/Uniparty/statist shill would do, amirite ? I'm pretty sure he'll wipe the floor with her in the debates when he holds fast on his positions. Monster vote acomin' ...

JRobby's picture

That is the real reality. What they fail to see is that no one cares what these bought and paid for pundits say on "the TV".

It is "The Big Liars Club". It has been around for decades to divide the people. UNITE NOW!!!!! WE SEE THE LIES TOLD TO ENRICH THE CRIMINALS AT THE EXPENSE OF HUMANITY.

Odd how Plouffe and the host side-stepped Clinton's and Obama's bloodthirsty, psychopathic slaughter of thousands of innocent civilian Muslims in Libya and Syria.

 

The host should have asked if that bothered Plouffe since he is commenting on Trump's theoretical problems, let him address actual, real-life proven psychopathic killers.

Fred C Dobbs's picture

I think hundreds of thousands of Christians too. 

Paul Kersey's picture

It's been quite awhile since the US hasn't had a psychopath as President. How many hundreds of thousands of innocent people have been murdered under our last three Presidents? If indiscriminately murdering people is the mark of an extreme psychopath, then we may even have had a former Secretary of State who fits that Bill (pun intended).

JustPastPeacefield's picture

Last time we had a president who wasn't a psychopath was ... Reagan. But they called him a crazy warmonger and said he could never be elected and were shocked come election night. I'm not saying Trump doesn't have an ego the size of Jupiter, but what pol doesn't. Certainly BO, HRC and her creepy husband qualify as dangerous pychopaths. The bodies keep piling up (and people mostly don't care.)

The video clip is a production to get dumbed-down Americans to think they are actually watching:

  • news
  • debate
  • rational thought
  • adults
  • political discourse
  • solutions to problems

 

The Democrat Public Relations panel is not doing a very good job at relating.  May the propaganda be seen for what it is.

 

The Price Is Right still has more truth and political news than MSM

How many of us were waiting to hear where Ice Cube stood on this?

Ice Cube ain't gonna last long with all the Global Warming (tm) that we are supposedly experiencing.

Maybe we'll get to call him (?) 'warm water' instead

That made me laugh, thanks. That was all I could think was "who the F*CK gives a rat's ass what "Ice Cube" thinks?" You summed it right up.

....unfit to be human?

 

Well, I remember a while back he was cruising through CT in his limo and got a flat tire.  Some dude stopped and went up to the limo driver and asked him if he needed help.  The guy changed the flat tire on the limo and  Trump told the driver to get the good Samaritan’s name and info.

  He later paid his home mortgage off.

 

Trump, the "unfit"" has a long history of doing things like that.  It's very well documented.

 

balz's picture

Let's not forget what he did with the ice ring in New York. Or how he helped others when they were in trouble. Trump is a great guy, someone who helps others. Hillary? She helps herself.

RiverRoad's picture

Meanwhile the Clintons just "dispense" with whomever gets in their way.

0hedgehog's picture

To be fair, the Clintons have paid off other people's mortgages too, OK so they were all rich but it's kinda the same!

Like I said in May... this summer will be quite entertaining, and it has not disappointed.  I can't wait for the debates and then the final mud-flinging finale leading up to the election.  There will be riots, fires in the streets, dogs and cats sleeping together, mass hysteria!!  lol

Trump has my vote and my families vote!!!  All anti-Trump MSM talking heads on CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN and Fox News as well as clueless hollywood and music entertainers can go fuck themselves!!

And fuck crooked Hillary, she belongs in jail...

Coming from the mouths of losers. That have spent their entire lives pissed off.

Fuck off bitches!

Meanwhile, their candidate is just fine.  corruption, ethics questions, instability (per secret service personnel), etc. 

balz's picture

What was wrong with Trump's comment, exactly? He complained someone was shot, and that's OK. I think the establishment is scared to death that something might change. Jeb Bush and Hillary are on the same side.

GeezerGeek's picture

They accused Trump of trying to make political hay out of a tragedy. Unlike Democrats, who are always given a pass when employing the "never let a crisis go to waste" strategy, others are not allowed to do so.

chubbar's picture

Trump started the birther movement? Talk about being a liar, how about researching the record? Hillary started that movement and as far as I'm concerned, it was a legit question and still is.

GeezerGeek's picture

Democrats are well known for this sort of behavior. Recall that AlGore was the one who started the anti-Dukakis Willie Horton meme back in 1988, but the press ended up trying to lay it at the feet of George H.W. Bush.

I love all these celebrities outing themselves for me because every day I learn more of them who will never see a penny of mine.

JustPastPeacefield's picture

I make notes too. I don't care if they have opinions different than mine, but don't bore me with them, or insult me. Stick to the music, or play-acting. I no more care what some dumb-as-rocks singer thinks than I do the janitor down the street. At least the latter lives in the real world.

Trumps true lead must be epic as the talmudis are going insane in their efforts to thwart him.

tmosley's picture

Well, he's about even despite consistant democratic overpolling by 7-12%.

What they are doing is the equivalent of pushing the needle on the spedometer to try to stop a car. Or putting their head in the sand.

I never thought all this BS corruption would implode in on itself so quickly. Just a year ago, there was no hope at all for America. Now...
