Donald Trump is a one-man clown car.
He makes the rest of the 2016 presidential hopefuls look downright impressive by comparison—and that’s really saying something, considering the field.
After telling the world that Mexicans are rapists and that pretty much everyone but him is a loser, the Donald has run into a little bit of a rough patch.
First, he screwed up his own beauty pageant by pissing of so many Latinos that there’s a real possibility Spanish–speaking contestants and performers will boycott.
Then he got fired from NBC, the network that aired his unwatchable reality show that ends with The Donald telling people “you’re fired!” from their fake jobs.
Now Trump’s weighing in on the complex and nuanced world of American public safety.
As usual, his comments are designed to sell newspapers and generate web traffic.
Trump’s advice to cops under the microscope is simple: “You can’t be so gentle with these people.”
The billionaire says cops are all too scared to do their jobs, and if he was in charge, he’d have the whole thing straightened out in a New York minute.
Who knows, he might be better at public safety consulting than he was at marriage or staying out of bankruptcy court.
But people like the Donald are very lucky to live during a time when the loudest—and frequently dumbest—voice is, for whatever reason, something people find entertaining.
