Trump promises universal healthcare coverage
But there are two problems. First, I wonder how many participants in tomorrow's Iowa Caucuses know about this particular position of his. And I am absolutely certain that I'm not the only one who would like to know how he plans to pay for it.
But then comes the second problem: he doesn't know. As usual, Donald Trump has absolutely no concrete answers about how he would go about achieving his goal. It's just more Trump smoke-and-mirrors; just more of Trump's traditional pattern of refusing to give concrete answers about anything.
Because he can't. He's just blowing hot air. That is literally all he does.
Neither on health care nor on any other major issue does Donald Trump have the slightest idea what he's talking about or what he's going to do. He just opens his mouth, and whatever comes out.... comes out. And heaven help you if you try to pin him down to specifics!
The frightening thing isn't that he doesn't know what he's talking about. The frightening thing is that he doesn't care- and neither do his supporters.
At the end of that wonderful Robert Redford move "The Candidate" the newly-elected and totally unqualified U.S. Senator-elect Bill McKay gets his campaign manager, Peter Boyle, alone in a hotel room as his victorious supporters celebrate, and asks a poignant question: "What do we do now?" The scene fades to black- and then the strains of "Hail to the Chief" start to play.
Donald Trump is not going to be elected president. The American people as a whole are just not that stupid. But it's still chilling to envision newly-inaugurated President Trump sitting down behind the desk in the Oval Office, looking out at the bizarre group of hucksters he's appointed as his advisors, and asking a question none of them have an answer for: "What now?
