It was a painful moment for Donald Trump. As he sat in his tuxedo at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, President Obama mercilessly mocked him as a loony conspiracy theorist. The real estate mogul, grim-faced, watched helplessly, unable to respond, while hundreds of journalists and their celebrity guests convulsed in laughter.
But it may also have been a transformative moment, according to a new “Frontline” documentary on the presidential race, called “The Choice 2016,” which airs next Tuesday night on PBS. “I think that is the night that he resolves to run for president,” Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, says in the film. “I think that he is kind of motivated by it. ‘Maybe I’ll just run. Maybe I’ll show them all.’”
Donald Trump himself has dismissed this idea as silly, but it WOULD seem to match what we know about Trump and his thin skin,
Here is what his friend Omarosa had to say about that night:
Omarosa Manigault, the former “Apprentice” star who now serves as director of African-American outreach for the Trump campaign, notes that when she talked to Trump at the start of the evening — he was a guest of the Washington Post, no less — “he was in just such a great mood. And he was very jovial.”
But as the president “kept going and going and he just kept hammering him,” Trump’s mood changed, she says. His face became “incredibly serious. He just put on a poker face.” And by the time the skewering was over, she suggests, Trump wanted payback.
“Every critic, every detractor will have to bow down to President Trump,” Manigault says. “It’s everyone who’s ever doubted Donald, whoever disagreed, whoever challenged him. It is the ultimate revenge to become the most powerful man in the universe.”
Well if that does not chill your blood I don't know what would.
I have already gone on record as suggesting that this was likely the moment that Trump decided to teach President Obama and the smug journalists in the room laughing at him a lesson.
I just think it's obvious.
After all Donald Trump had made a living out of manipulating the dumbest human beings on the planet by convincing them that he was some kind of super capitalist, now all he had to do was reach out to their friends and neighbors, who were just as stupid, and convince them that he would be a super President.
After all how could he fail, he is white.
I still don't think he really wants it.
But he wants to know that if he wanted it he could have it, and he wants his enemies to know it as well.
