Likely 2016 make-believe presidential candidate Donald Trump is offended that nobody from the Obama administration has called him up to ask for his “beautiful” and “foolproof” plan to beat ISIS, which he says he wouldn’t actually give to the Obama administration because “they’re all a bunch of clowns.”
Trump first teased his “beautiful” but secret anti-ISIS plan in an interview with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren last week, and returned to the subject in a conversation with Iowa talk radio host Simon Conway yesterday:
Saying that Generals Douglas MacArthur and George Patton “must be spinning in their grave” at the Obama administration’s handling of ISIS, Trump said that, in contrast, he knows of “a way of beating ISIS so easily, so quickly, so effectively, and it would be so nice.”
“I know a way that would absolutely give us guaranteed victory,” Trump told Conway, adding that he doesn’t want to say his “foolproof” idea because, “number one,” people will forget it was his idea and “number two,” it would tip off the enemy.
When Conway asked if he had run his idea “past any generals, any SEALs, anybody with military experience,” Trump replied that he “ran it past two or three people” who of course “love it.” But, he lamented, nobody from the Obama administration has called him to share this brilliant idea, which he compared to the invention of the paper clip.
“So simple. It’s like the paper clip,” he said. “You know, somebody came up with the idea of the paper clip and made a lot of money and everybody’s saying, ‘Boy, why didn’t I think of that, it’s so simple.’ This is so simple, so surgical, it would be an unbelievable thing. Now, I’ve been around saying this, you would think somebody from the administration would at least call me and say, ‘Hey, could you tell us what it is?’ It happens to be a great idea. But at the right time, I guess I’ll give it. “
He then added that he’d be reluctant to share his idea with the Obama administration anyway, because “they’re all a bunch of clowns.”
