[h=2]Donald Trump has entered a political kill zone. And the American establishment is lining up to take him out. We are talking here in virtual terms - at least thus far.[/h] Nowadays, political assassination by US powers-that-be does not necessarily involve physical liquidation of the individual deemed to be an enemy of the state. Who needs all that blood and controversy? Especially when character assassination achieves the same desired end result — that is, elimination of target from the public domain.
Now everybody knows that I am no fan of Donald Trump... REALLY, REALLY NO FAN. LOL. However, I would once more like to play a little Devil's Advocate at Debate Politics. Is it just Trump's foot in mouth disease that is causing him to lose in an historic landslide this year, or are forces lining up against him to figuratively take him out. Hillary Clinton did say a few days ago that words have meaning, and I agree. The right words can kill a political career every bit as effectively as an assassin's bullet.
So, the discussion I would like to see in this thread is..............
Is the writer of this article correct when he compares what he believes to be a character assassination of Donald Trump with the assassination of JFK?
Please read the article carefully before commenting, and feel free to either agree with it or pick it apart. Please give me a minute while I get some popcorn and beer. :mrgreen:
