Bitch slapped USA: US Billionaire and Republican front-runner for the US presidential nomination Donald Trump is attacked by SNP MP Alex Salmond as a “three-time loser”, the Trump organization call it right on Alex Salmond, he is a ‘has been’ and ‘irrelevant’, oh how truth hurts as irrelevant Salmond seeks to ‘hog the limelight’, his time is over
It is said that if you give a monkey a typewriter then one day it will produce the works of Shakespeare.
Although this is highly unlikely!
US Billionaire Donald Trump is a man on a mission, he wants to be President of the United States, whether he can get the nomination is anyone’s guess, but Trump is being very populist at the moment and garnering support.
One thing which he has said which hits the nail on the head is when he called Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ Alex Salmond as a “has-been and totally irrelevant”.
One the surface, you might think, gosh that it is a bit strong until you look back the history between Trump and Salmond.
Alex Salmond is a total irrelevant has been, his day in the Sun has long gone as did any hope of Scottish independence.
Killed off by lies, lies and more lies!
If you think back the incident which I suspect did it for Salmond and Trump was when Salmond’s crew wanted to issue a press release that Donald Trump supported the release of Al Megrahi.
Al Megrahi was convicted of the worst terrorist murders in Scotland; no way could Donald Trump support his release given the nature of the crime. It was bad judgment on the part of the SNP, and afterwards, it became clear that the relationship broke down. The SNP were seen to be petty, backward and stupid towards Trump who was investing in Scotland, bring in money and jobs.
The way he went about it however is another story.
So far we have seen a rather nasty war of words as Salmond and Trump go at it publicly, Salmond is rather stung by the ‘has been’ comment, and so he should, it’s the truth, and the truth hurts and can be painful.
Donald Trump has lost his his latest legal bid to prevent an offshore wind farm being built near his Aberdeenshire golf course, instead of helping his business succeed and thereby protecting jobs, the SNP Government, petty and small minded is in ‘fuck you’ mode.
Could the offshore wind farm be moved?
But the real issue for me is beyond the windmills spinning is the fact that business can’t do business with the SNP Government.
Salmond loves to hog the limelight, so this spat is his chance to shine in Trump’s shadow, as we know, Alex Salmond is a has been. Salmond calling the US billionaire and Republican front-runner for the US presidential nomination as a “three-time loser” is just upping the ante.
It is all about Salmond saying me me me to the press!
In grandstanding mode Salmond also attacked Trump for failing to live up to promises on the economic benefits of the Aberdeenshire course.
“As First Minister, I was cited in Trump’s legal action. Now it is concluded, I am free to speak my mind on the damaging impact of his interventions on the Scottish economy. He has created a fine golf course but it does not even have a permanent clubhouse at present, far less the claims of thousands of jobs and billions of investment.”
The Trump organization quickly retorted:
"Does anyone care what this man thinks? He's a has-been and totally irrelevant. The fact that he doesn't even know what's going on in his own constituency says it all. We have a permanent clubhouse and the business is flourishing. He should go back to doing what he does best - unveiling pompous portraits of himself that pander to his already overinflated ego."
Meow on that one Sir!
So, why doesn’t Alex Salmond know that there is a permanent clubhouse and the business is flourishing?
I would venture the proposition, it is because Alex Salmond is a ‘has been’ who thinks without checking facts, a small man who will one day be seen as not even a poor man’s William Wallace.
How ironic would it be if Trump because President of the United States and then we all watch as Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP crawl on their bellies toadying to him?
In this fight, it is a case of who do you dislike the least.
