O/T — Shorter Trump: “Stop Quoting Me.” It’s Hurting My Chances.

whopper-trump-damns-himself-2016I think the below is a res ipsa moment. That is, the “thing” speaks for himself — from one of his latest Twitter feed rants:

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump2h2 hours ago

“. . .If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn’t put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%. . . .”

The media simply quoted the words he uttered, almost without exception.

Mr. Trump, there can be no false meaning put into your actual words, especially when you don’t disavow them — for days on end.

Words mean what they mean. And he is losing precisely because of his own views — expressed in his own words.

That’s how this whole free democratic election thing words, Mr. Trump.

Stop being you, and maybe your brand would arrest its plunge, in the polls — but probably not.

[And a sincere hat tip — to the sublime Rick Laurent — for his political cartoon art. Do go see.]
