What Trump Really Said About Foreign Policy

Columnists and talking heads have been wasting time dissecting Trump's foreign policy talk this week -- treating it seriously, in other words.

All they really had to do was quote a dialogue exchange from Ionesco's play The Bald Soprano:

Mrs. Smith: Such caca, such caca, such caca, such caca, such caca, such caca, such caca, such caca, such caca."

Mr. Martin: "Such cascades of cacas, such cascades of cacas, such cascades of cacas, such cascades of cacas, such cascades of cacas, such cascades of cacas, such cascades of cacas, such cascades of cacas."

That sums it up in terms Trump himself might enjoy, since as Politico points out, he enjoys dissing his opponents "by calling them 'losers,' 'total losers,' 'haters,' 'dumb,' 'idiots,' "morons," 'stupid,' 'dummy' and 'disgusting.'

He called the Iraq war "a big, fat mistake" -- two adjectives I haven't heard used together since elementary school. And that's the level he likes to speak at, according to more than one analysis. Forget making America great again, he's making us all feel young.
