You might have heard Donald Trump score another one for the tasteless, tactless and thoughtless.
Will this latest insult doom his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination? I doubt it.
The object of Trump’s latest bit of scorn happened to be Dr. Ben Carson … specifically his faith.
Trump was rambling over the weekend about his being a Presbyterian. Then he launched into a brief riff wondering about Carson’s Seventh-day Adventist faith.
It was as if Trump didn’t think much of Carson’s belief.
Let’s see, Trump has gone after:
John McCain’s war record; Carly Fiorina’s appearance; broadcast journalist Megyn Kelly’s line of questioning; Jeb Bush’s “lack of energy”; the media in general; talk-show host Hugh Hewitt’s so-called “gotcha” journalism; Hispanic immigrants.
Anyone else? Oh, probably. I just can’t think of them.
Will any of it doom him. One would think. But wait! This isn’t a normal election year.
Goofiness is what many of the GOP faithful seem to want.
Heaven help them … and the rest of us.
