As we continue to monitor all things from the walking comic strip / follically impaired blowhard Donald Trump, the PRNewserverse just discovered if you believe the president should be more of a “hero,” then we found your man!
Turns out, Donald is more of a superhero. I mean, he even candidly admits that he does not need Secret Service detail. Who needs it when you can “sense threats” … seriously.
“In my book I predicted terrorism. Because I can feel it,” said Trump (via AP/Yahoo!), speaking to thousands of supporters packed into Tennessee’s Knoxville Convention Center. “I can feel it like I feel a good location.”
Just like his nose for scouting a good location in real estate, Trump went on to say Monday, “I really believe I have an instinct for this kind of thing.”
“Nobody knew this kind of terrorism before. But I felt it. And you have to have somebody that has an instinct to lead this country,” he said.
We are still scouring through our collegiate history books, but we haven’t found any notion of the fabled Reagan / Roosevelt / Lincoln / Washington “gut feeling”. So, why are we discussing Trump’s gut?
Trump, the billionaire businessman and former reality television star, was referring to a passage in one of his books, “The America We Deserve,” in which he warned of the threat posed by terrorism and referenced Osama Bin Laden as a “shadowy figure.”
The book was published in 2000, before the Sept. 11 attacks, and Trump has taken to trumpeting the passage to prove that, despite his lack of foreign policy experience, he is qualified to be president.
Rest well, America. Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Trump is on the case.
