Trump’s Words Don’t Matter (they’re just suggestions)

From:,  by Erick Erickson,  on May 13, 2016,  see the article HERE. H/T to our own Crawfish!

Donald Trump - zero

Here’s what my words and promises mean – zero. They’re just suggestions.

Here is one of Donald Trump’s spokesmen, Barry Bennett, going on CNN to debate Donald Trump’s policies. Instead, what he says is that Donald Trump is making suggestions. The spokesman says that Trump’s proposals to ban Muslims and to build a wall are just suggestions, not really proposals.

In fact, the spokesman points out that Trump’s words don’t matter. He actually admits this.

“This words matter stuff is ridiculous.”

So Trump’s words don’t matter and his proposals are just suggestions. Hat tip to the Free Beacon for pointing out this absurdity.


Wow – just wow! Let’s get this straight. Trump’s words don’t matter?

When Donald Trump emphatically states that he’s going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it, he’s going to dump Common Core, he’ll get rid of Obamacare and replace it with something “terrific,” he’ll save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cutting benefits, and temporarily ban most foreign Muslims from entering the United States and defund Planned Parenthood (to name a few), he’s just making “suggestions”?

He doesn’t expect to be held to those positions, they don’t matter? Voters shouldn’t really expect him to do those things? Silly me, that would be foolish, after all, they’re only “suggestions.” 

Please enlighten us, the country’s poor dumb unwashed masses, as to how we can differentiate between Trump’s promises suggestions and Ted Cruz’s suggestions “lies.” Are they not also merely suggestions? What makes Ted’s words lies while Donald’s words are only suggestions? Is there anything that Trump has said that we can depend on? Or was it all just a bunch of bullshit? Here in Texas, that’s what we call a lot of words without meaning – bullshit. It sounds like Trump’s whole campaign is constructed around suggesting things will be done without any real commitment to do them or expectation that they will get done – we call that bullshit.

The Donald has really hornswoggled a bunch of voters into believing that he would really do things; that his rhetoric wasn’t just more politician’s empty promises. That’s the very definition of a con-man and a con-man’s stock in trade is – (wait for it) – BULLSHIT.

  1. What a strange little fellow. Well, not so little. But strange. Trump followers who think of themselves as conservatives have been deluded, conned,maybe a little mass hypnosis. When they wake up, there will be a lot of regret.


    • It seems to me that with all of the changes Trump’s positions that have been publicized lately, some of them are probably already feeling some buyer’s lament. But they’ll never admit it publicly – the last thing they want is for us to be able to say, “told you so.”

  2. Wow, this guy is a piece of work. Next thing you know, we’ll need a spokesman to walk back what the spokesman said that was walking back what Trump said.
