Regarding Asians, notably Chinese: ""When these people walk into the room, they don't say, "Oh, hello, how's the weather? It's so beautiful outside. They say, We want deal!"

On African Americans: Trump has been quoted as stating, "African Americans are very lazy. The best they can do is gallivanting around ghettoes, lamenting how they are discriminated. These are the people America doesn't need." Now, to be fair, other reports show that he actually said "Africans", not African Americans; but in either case it is an insult.

And, one commercial that will not deal with insults but will be highly troubling will have Trump proclaiming to the American people and the world that he will "use water boarding and a whole lot more" when dealing with "suspected" enemies.

These commercials, many of them portraying Trump as the modern-day version of Benito Mussolini, who he greatly resembles, will run in the media continuously. And there will be additional ones created to highlight more and more of new insults, as well as lies and gross misrepresentations of fact by the Trumpster.

But while I make this dire prediction of how Trump will go down in flames I also want to make this observation: that if he would have conducted his campaign in a civil, rational manner, refraining from the constant insults and smears of his opponents and had concentrated on how he would specifically make American "Great again", then he might have been unstoppable and maybe even defeated the Democratic candidate in November. However, that's not Trump, he shoots from the hip and his mouth and he is playing the only role that he knows; the master of disruption and dissension.

As the election process evolves Trump's chances of winning the presidency will be virtually destroyed because of how he has completely alienated the vast majority of women, Hispanics, African Americans, Asians and the mass of Americans.

And, then, we'll watch as Trump's run for the presidency goes down in flames.
