Trump busted on China

text size: AAA

I just finished watching a clip of Donald Trump on David Letterman implying that he and Mitt Romney are vehemently against the amount of business China receives from the US.

His comment, "They are taking the heart out of us." Within minutes of that statement, Letterman handles a tie and dress shirt from the "Donald" collection, being sold at Macy's, (according to Trump, a big seller).

Of course this prompts the obvious question, which Letterman asks, "Where is it made?" A stage hand yells out, "China!"

I could not believe what I had just heard. As a matter of fact, I had to rewind the news clip just to be sure I heard correctly. Upon confirming, I was mortified and angered by the stupidity and deception of this discovery. I could not join in on the laughter.

It's a joke all right, but not very funny. Perhaps if the punchline was delivered from a fortune cookie, I would have laughed. That would have been a humorous distraction. But, instead, I had to resort to watching Trump's face after what the morning newscasters described as BUSTED!

However, I did share in Trump's jaw-dropping reaction, but certainly not with purchasing one of his ties, best seller or knot.
