He comes back with a certain bravado

Fareed Zakaria called Trump a bullshit artist on CNN this morning.

Zakaria pointed to the pattern that has emerged in Trump’s efforts to defend or clarify his controversial statements.

“Every time it is demonstrated that Donald Trump is plainly ignorant about some basic public policy issue, some well-known fact, he comes back with a certain bravado and tries to explain it away with a tweet or a statement,” Zakaria said.

“Bravado” is a very sweet way of putting it. Psychopathic shamelessness is how I would put it.

“It’s entertaining,” Zakaria said of Trump’s shtick, “if the guy is trying to sell you a condo or a car. But for the president of the United States, it’s deeply worrying.”

It was deeply worrying in Bush Junior, and it’s that squared in Trump.

At the end of the post there’s a note:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.


If you watch the video you will see: Zakaria does call him a bullshit artist.
