A common daydream inside Donald Trump's head


Two men at a restaurant:


1st man: And what will you have, Trump?
2nd man: Why, I'll have the Trump.
1st man: Looks good, but I'll have Trump.
2nd man: Good choice.
(Waiter comes by)
"And what will you two handsome Trumps have to drink?
1st man: I'll try the Trump for a change
2nd man: I think I'll stick to my old favorite, Trump.
Waiter: VERY GOOD, sirs!!

The scene, of course, was cadged from a scene in the movie Being John Malkovich, but it applies to Donald Trump more than anyone else.

D(onald) Day!

Today, Tuesday June 21, could be THE day that Donald Trump gets the imprimatur of the Christian Right - if he agrees that they an mold him into a God-fearing anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-Muslim, anti-feminist President, of course.

The anti-Muslim, anti-abortion President is, of course, a moot point. But the anti-gay may be a bit harder to tackle. He'll have to turn to a plethora of contradictions. On the other hand, that makes no difference to the people who want to believe in him no matter the unreasonableness of his rhetoric.

"We will defend Christian Americans," Trump said, before repeating himself for emphasis. "Christian Americans." But how is he going to do that while defending gays whom many Evangelicals say are a threat to their religious liberty? Hmmm... True bombastic Trump style will certainly be put to the test.

"We Will Mold Him"

The man who said he would become Presidential when the time called for it has now told everyone "I won't change". He will be resistant to the Christian Right "molding" him into their image. So, of course, they're now trying desperately to make their mold fit Trump:

Bloomberg News has an article about how Donald Trump is working to get evangelical Christians to donate $400,000 to his general election campaign and some Christians think he's been sending them secret Christian hand signals to show them that he submits himself to God.
At one recent meeting with Trump, evangelical leaders noted how he often flashes a signature hand gesture, with a thumb out and a finger point to the sky, as he enters and exits rallies.
"You see athletes do it all the time and it's their chance to point to the sky, to thank God for their success," said Pastor Mark Burns, CEO of a Christian television network based in South Carolina. "Trump does this all of the time, too. He's giving reverence to the man upstairs."

Jay Bookman of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution put it best:
