This gets at why people are flocking to Donald Trump.
Trump excoriated Democratic presidential candidate Gov. Martin O’Malley after he apologized to the Black Lives Matter movement for saying “all lives matter.
Trump told Fox and Friends today:
He apologized like a little baby. Like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby, and that’s the problem with our country … How can you apologize when you say “Black lives matter,” which is true. “White lives matter,” which is true. “All lives matter,” which is true. And then they get angry because you said “white” and “all” … What’s there to apologize for?
This shows too things. Trump is totally unafraid of the political correctness police. He’ll say “all lives matter” and not give one damn what anyone thinks.
And he will take it directly to his opponents. No half measures. If Trump’s opponents say something stupid, they’re going to hear about it. It’s the intestinal fortitude conservative voters are looking for from a candidate.
They want someone who will take the punches and throw some back. And many are so eager for a fighter that they’ll wait to get the details of his policies later.
