I could take Donald Trump dissing Megyn Kelly and FOX News. I could understand why he had some of things he had in his past come back and bite him in his billion dollar butt. But now I think Trump has gone too far. He has crossed that line from eccentric billionaire to a guy who thinks he has too much power.
What egregious thing did he do? Did he steal candy from a child in a wheelchair? Did he cut in line in front of an elderly lady? Did he tell disrespect a war hero? No, what Donald Trump did was far worse than any of those things.
Donald Trump had the gall to say that former Victoria Secret’s German-born ubermodel Heidi Klum is no longer a ten! Can you imagine the flat-out cajones it takes to say something like that? I mean maybe if it was George Clooney or Brad Pitt saying it we could maybe see our way clear to buying it, maybe.
But this is Donald Freaking Trump. He is a couple of small steps away from being the most powerful man in the world. He is the same man who got lambasted for suggesting that a reporter was on her period when she was moderating the Republican Debate (no matter how he tries to explain it away). This is the same man who called women anything from “fat, disgusting pigs” to suggesting that the best position for one the contestants on his show “The Apprentice” was “on her knees”.
He has been called everything from a misogynist to an absolute a$$ hole, but the one thing I would venture to say he has never been called is blind. That is until today.
Klum is 42 years old, but looks as though she is 27. Her boyfriend is 29 year old Vito Schnabel, with whom she spent the entire summer. But unlike most of the women Trump has talked about lately, Klum took it all in stride, tweeting out the following:
“#TrumpHasSpoken #sadly #9.99 #NoLongerA10 #IHadAGoodRun #donaldtrump #HeidiTrumpsTrump #BeautyIsInTheEyeOfTheBeheld,”
Accompanying the tweet is a 12 second video of the Super Model. In clip, the 42-year-old mother of four is seen being photographed for a fashion shoot, wearing a white T-shirt that says “10.”
Suddenly, a man wearing a paper Trump mask rips off the “10,” revealing the numbers “9.99.”
Klum gasps, then looks down at the new numbers, shrugs it off and smiles.
The video closes with the hashtag #HeidiTrumpsTrump.
That ladies and gentlemen is the way you handle something as inane as Donald Trump making the kind of statements he is getting all too well known for. Ms. Klum handled it with class, grace, dignity and even a little humor.
The question now becomes do we want a President who will make that kind of comment about anybody? Or I guess the bigger question becomes, do we want a President who is obviously lacking in taste and quite possibly eyesight.
