It’s been a rough stretch for The Donald.

He announced his presidential run to the booming strains of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World.” Mr. Young was none too pleased.  Trump had that covered, of course, as a spokesperson explained that although Trump had paid ASCAP to use the song he would in the future defer to the song’s author and not use it.  Young added insult to injury by noting that not only did he not approve of the orange- coiffed billionaire real estate mogul using his song but that he, in fact, was supporting socialist candidate Bernie Sanders.  For his part, Sanders used the Young song at a packed rally in Colorado.  SCORE: Socialist Senator Bernie-1; Rich Real Estate Mogul The Donald-0.  It gets worse for Trump.  While Bernie’s packed house was rocking to Young’s music, it seems that Trump had to pay actors to attend his campaign announcement speech in order to make it look like anyone cared.

“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. [Applause] Thank you. It’s true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”  Well.  Thank you, Mr. Trump. That’s reassuring.

Apparently, The Donald never got the memo about GOP outreach to Latino voters. And just what are Asians “bringing,” to America, I wonder.  I’m sure Trump knows.

Finally, though, The Donald got it right this week. For a day or two, the  Republican presidential hopefuls had me wondering how they would ever stand up to Putin or ISIS if they were afraid to take on the Dukes of Hazard.  To his credit, however, Trump said, quite directly: “I think they should put it in the museum and let it go,” speaking of the confederate flag during an appearance at his new golf course in the Washington, D.C. suburbs. “Respect whatever it is you have to respect, because it was a point in time, and put it in a museum. But I would take it down. Yes.”“I would take it down, yes,” the billionaire real estate mogul said. “I think they should put it in a museum and respect whatever it is you have to respect.

Perhaps this helped Trump right his ship, but his roll-out was so bizarre, The Donald’s campaign is likely over before it ever began.  As The Daily News entitled its editorial covering Trump’s announcement: “Resisting the Urge to Take Donald Trump Seriously as a Candidate for President. ” Trump has made that easy enough, hasn’t he?  As I write this, I’m informed that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has tossed his hate in the ring.  I have no urge to take him seriously, either.
