Donald Trump’s F-Bomb Attack

So this is how Donald Trump pivots from his birther message, now that President Obama has vanquished that hideous meme: He unleashes the f-bomb.

In a Thursday night speech in Las Vegas, Trump railed against lawmakers that he described as “blood suckers,” bouncing from subjects like gas prices, Iraq, and foreign trade. “We have weak, pathetic leadership,” Trump said of the Obama administration. “Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people.”

But that paled in comparison to his expletive-laden zingers on foreign policy and trade. Speaking about America’s military presence abroad, he said:

We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can’t get a fucking school in Brooklyn.

Then, on the issue of oil prices and OPEC, the coalition with control on much of the world’s oil supply, he quipped:

We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that fucking price.

And despite the fact that some of his clothing is made in China, Trump bashed the Middle Kingdom. If elected president, what would his message for China be?

“Listen you motherfuckers, we’re going to tax you 25 percent!” 

Ah, that’ll do wonders for America’s image abroad. Here’s the video:

$500,000 MATCHING GIFT

In 2014, before Donald Trump announced his run for president, we knew we had to do something different to address the fundamental challenge facing journalism: how hard-hitting reporting that can hold the powerful accountable can survive as the bottom falls out of the news business.

Being a nonprofit, we started planning The Moment for Mother Jones: A special campaign to raise $25 million for key investments to make Mother Jones the strongest watchdog it can be. Five years later, readers have stepped up and contributed an astonishing $23 million in gifts and future pledges. This is an incredible statement from the Mother Jones community in the face of the huge threats—both economic and political—against the free press.

Read more about The Moment and see what we've been able to accomplish thanks to readers' incredible generosity so far, and please join them today. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 total, during this critical moment for journalism.
