Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Hypocrite of the Week: Donald Trump

I’m sure you’ve noticed that Donald Trump has been taking a lot of time out from his busy schedule of grooming that animal that lives on his head and making a fool of himself over Obama’s birth certificate to bash China and declare that our purchase of so many products made there is destroying America.

“China is raping this country,” Mr. Trump said during an appearance in New Hampshire, the nation’s first primary state…

The New York real estate magnate said, if elected, he would create jobs and “put the nation back to work.”

“When this country became great was the industrial revolution,” he said. “We are now the opposite of the industrial revolution, and pretty soon we are going to fall off a cliff.”

And that’s just the beginning. China is “laughing at us all,” he has declared in other venues. “They think we are dumb SOBs,” he says. They’re an “absolute abuser” of America that is “looking to strip us of everything.”

“When it comes to manufacturing, China is making all of these products. And they could be made in North Carolina, they could be made in Alabama, they could be made in lots of our places. And right now they’re not. Personally, I’d tax China very, very heavily. “

Given the title of the blog, you know where this is leading. Guess where Donald Trump’s clothing line is made? What a shock. Now, what do you suppose The Donald would do if Congress attempted to put a tax on clothing imported from China? He’d spend as much money as he had to in order to bribe legislators to keep that from happening.

I love the smell of hypocrisy in the morning.
