If you’ll indulge me for just a moment, I’d like to give a brief listing of the reasons Donald Trump has proven he never is and never will be Presidential material:
- He’s a pathological liar
- He’s a bully
- He’s a misogynist
- He’s a racist and a xenophobe
- He’s an utter moron and is barely able to construct a sentence
- He’s a failure as a businessman
- He’s a whiny, spoiled little rich kid all grown up to be an entitled adult
- He’s a douchebag
To this ever-growing list, you can now add the crime of plagiarism. Take a look at this tweet Trump sent posted not today as part of his commentary on the horrific massacre of 50 innocent human beings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida:
Reporting that Orlando killer shouted "Allah hu Akbar!" as he slaughtered clubgoers. 2nd man arrested in LA with rifles near Gay parade.

An eagle-eyed reporter at CNN, Brian Stelter, thought that tweet sounded familiar, and he made a screenshot of the one he recalled from about 20 minutes before Trump’s:

Did Trump credit Seb Gorka, who happens to be a national security consultant to the Trump campaign? No, he certainly didn’t, which makes him guilty of word-for-word plagiarism. This shouldn’t surprise any of us because Donald Trump has never had an original idea of his own. He is a brainless, vapid, walking and talking shit stain whose only purpose in life seems to be fomenting hatred and division in America.
Trump will no doubt try to weasel his way out of this matter, too, but it speaks to a much larger issue which every American must confront with sober and rational thought between now and the election in November: Do we want a man this deeply flawed, this unstable, this seemingly unhinged, to lead the most powerful nation in the world and have control of our entire nuclear arsenal.
Donald Trump is a malignant cancer on everything good and decent that the United States stands for. He cannot be defeated soon enough.
