Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, September 18, 2016

Mark Morford: [Donald] Trump, of course, suffers from a bizarre combination of ethical derangement, reverse priapism, moral tapeworm and malignant spiritual melanoma, all shot through by an incurable deterioration of everything it means to be human. It's impossible not to notice. So dire is his condition, so bizarre and inscrutable, the media has struggled mightily to report it with any accuracy. They are flailing everywhere. It's no wonder. Problem is, Trump's derangement is so compete, so astonishing, so head-scratchingly WTF-you-can't-be-serious, from claiming he helped clear rubble on 9/11 (he didn't) to swiping $20 grand from his own bogus "charitable" foundation to buy a six-foot painting of himself (he did), to claiming he never supported the Iraq war (he did) to, oh dear God, roughly 10,000 other shameless and instantly discredited lies, it's no wonder the media is taking heat for not sufficiently holding his inane statements to the fire.

There has never been a modern, major-party candidate so nasty, so poorly educated, so poisonous to the American experiment, one who openly offers not a single iota of joy, hope, intellectual curiosity, genuine concern for the well-being of anyone but himself. Trump operates on the lowest, least humane strata of human dignity and moral disdain. Bush was dumb as a post, but he had a moral center and basic human decency. Trump's most devout wish? To pass on his personal moral tapeworm to you, to me, to the world.

More juicy Morford (best newspaper read since Dave Barry):

This spasm in history we're suffering through? This is about as ugly as America gets.

"Deplorables," by the way, is a marvelous word. "Basket of deplorables" is even better, a rich and memorable image – though of course when speaking of Trump's most vicious core supporters, a huge number of which support white nationalist hate groups, or Putin, or anti-Muslim rhetoric and fully 65% of which think Obama is a Muslim and huge percentages of whom think blacks, Muslims and Mexicans are more violent, more criminal and lazier than whites, perhaps "cesspool" is more apt.

The idea of wall brings them great joy.
Just ask any of them.

My best friends tell me the biggest tapeworm removed from a human was 82 feet long.
From the mouth, it was removed.
Probably some chick in a Mexican backwater, like Olvera Street.
Mine is bigger, much bigger.
Yuuge.
I call it "Linguini."
But I'm not worried.
Nossir, no way it can consume all the carcinogens I shove into my pie-hole.

Thanks to this author for a good unbiased analysis of his mind reading of Trump. I also appreciate him filling in the fact gaps with conjecture to create a cohesive narrative.

...deeply wishing for her death so they can reclaim the country for an increasingly irrelevant army of furious white males who can't spell...

LOL. I've never heard of this guy but he's a riot.

Mark Morford a small time columnist, who was never a journalist of any note. Lives in a liberal bubble in San Francisco. Writes mostly about Yoga and gay issues. So he doesn't like Trump, how surprising. Just another scared progressive venting his fears about the possibility of Trump becoming president.

He's a hoot to read though. Most of the other well known loudmouths were never journalists either.

Bringing up morals with Hillary in the mix is just ludicrous.
