Donald Trump und die WELT

8. August 2015 | Kategorie: Aufgelesen, Kommentare

Die peinlichen Versuche der amerikanisch-präsidialen Erbmonarchie sich gegen das Phänomen Donald Trump zu wehren haben einen bemerkenswerten Unterhaltungswert. Momente für die Ewigkeit haben wir dem Wahlkampf schon jetzt zu verdanken. Nach den trostlosen Veranstaltungen, die an political correctness erstickten, dürfte manchem derzeit die Galle überlaufen. Hier ein kleiner Auszug aus der ersten Debatte der Republikaner:

FOX News Brett Baier (talking to Trump): Now, 15 years ago, you called yourself a liberal on health care. You were for a single-payer system, a Canadian-style system. Why were you for that then and why aren’t you for it now?

TRUMP: As far as single payer, it works in Canada. It works incredibly well in Scotland. It could have worked in a different age, which is the age you’re talking about here.

What I’d like to see is a private system without the artificial lines around every state. I have a big company with thousands and thousands of employees. And if I’m negotiating in New York or in New Jersey or in California, I have like one bidder. Nobody can bid.

You know why?

Because the insurance companies are making a fortune because they have control of the politicians, of course, with the exception of the politicians on this stage. (uneasy laughter) But they have total control of the politicians. They’re making a fortune.

Get rid of the artificial lines and you will have…yourself great plans…

BAIER: Mr. Trump, it’s not just your past support for single-payer health care. You’ve also supported a host of other liberal policies….You’ve also donated to several Democratic candidates, Hillary Clinton included, and Nancy Pelosi. You explained away those donations saying you did that to get business-related favors. And you said recently, quote, “When you give, they do whatever the hell you want them to do.”

TRUMP: You’d better believe it.

BAIER: — they do?

TRUMP: If I ask them, if I need them, you know, most of the people on this stage I’ve given to, just so you understand, a lot of money.

TRUMP:  I will tell you that our system is broken. I gave to many people, before this, before two months ago, I was a businessman. I give to everybody. When they call, I give. And do you know what? When I need something from them two years later, three years later, I call them, they are there for me. And that’s a broken system.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What did you get from Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi?

TRUMP: Well, I’ll tell you what, with Hillary Clinton, I said be at my wedding and she came to my wedding. You know why?

She didn’t have a choice because I gave. I gave to a foundation that, frankly, that foundation is supposed to do good. I didn’t know her money would be used on private jets going all over the world. It was.

BAIER: Hold on…..We’re going to — we’re going to move on.” (Transcript: Read the Full Text of the Primetime Republican Debate, Time)

Bisher fällt dem Mainstream nur der Vorwurf des Populismus ein, der freilich gegen einen Politker gerichtet ziemlich hilflos wirkt. Die Berichterstattung ist auch in den deutschen Medien ziemlich trostlos, in der WELT bezeichnete ein offenbar enorm erfolgreicher Journalist (sonst wäre er ja nicht bei der WELT…) Trump als „Clown“. Nun spricht nicht nur bei Shakespeare oft derjenige, der für einen Narr gehalten wird, manch wahres Wort aus.

Was auch immer man von Trump halten mag, wenn er es schaffen sollte, die widerliche Seuche der political correctness nachhaltig zu bekämpfen, wäre das eine schöne Sache. Aber mein Gott – darf man so etwas überhaupt denken? Der Mann ist schließlich reich…
