Donald Trump is losing it. He simply can’t take being mocked, and the speakers at the Democratic National Convention have been smacking him down for four straight days. The bombastic billionaire is furious and now he says he wants to “hit so hard” the people taking swings at him, particularly a “little guy” who spoke at the DNC that Trump said he would hit “so hard his head would spin.”
You know what I wanted to. I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard,” Trump said. “I would have hit them. No, no. I was going to hit them, I was all set and then I got a call from a highly respected governor.
Trump didn’t explain exactly what he meant or who he was talking about, as completing a thought is something he struggles with, but he was especially p*ssed off at the unnamed person he referred to only as “the little guy.”
I was gonna hit one guy in particular, a very little guy,” he said. “I was gonna hit this guy so hard his head would spin and he wouldn’t know what the hell happened.
The Republican nominee has been having a rough week. Not being the center of attention is hard on him and the Democrats have been slapping him around since Monday. On Wednesday, he called an impromptu press conference (aka “Hey, look at me!) where he called on the Russian government to find and release Hillary Clinton’s “missing” emails.
“By the way, if they hacked, they probably have her 33,000 emails. I hope they do,” Trump told reporters Wednesday morning during a press conference at his golf club in Doral, Florida. “They probably have her 33,000 emails that she lost and deleted.”
Trump’s decision to encourage the Russian government to commit espionage and interfere with a U.S. election sparked an immediate backlash from Republicans as well as Democrats. The Donald is insisting that he was only being sarcastic and just joking around. However, his remarks were poorly thought out at best and have raised serious questions when it comes to national security, especially since intelligence briefings for the presidential candidates are set to start any day now.
