Taylor: Donald Trump’s Refreshing Lack Of A Filter

IMG_3667 || By TAYLOR BROWN || This election season is going to be all sorts of entertaining – with six Republican candidates already announcing their candidacies and many more GOP darlings soon to jump into the ring.  Included in the latter group?  World famous real estate mogul Donald Trump.

I remember always being fascinated with this man – who has more money than God (“I built up a network that’s about $10 billion … it’s actually probably over $10 billion now”) – ever since seeing his Home Alone 2 cameo.  I also love The Apprentice and admire his gorgeous daughter.

Recently, though, I’ve come to appreciate his complete lack of filter when talking about politics.

How is it that a man can say “I don’t give a sh*t about the lobbyists!” and get a standing ovation at the South Carolina Faith and Freedom Summit?

It’s because people appreciate being told things straight.  And Donald Trump does just that – he doesn’t sugar coat anything.  He’s like the one friend we all have that says “you look fat in that dress.”  You may not want to hear it at the time, but you appreciate after the fact that he didn’t let you go out looking like a train wreck.

Trump has a knack for saying exactly what the other politicians want to say – and are probably thinking – but are too scared to actually say it.  It’s unfiltered truth that resonates with people who have “heard it all before,” and Trump has a unique ability to tap into this audience.

Everything you shouldn’t say as a candidate, he says.  Basically, Trump is like if Joe Biden had more brain cells, money, and work experience.  Refreshing.

Now I have no idea if Trump actually had a script in front of him at the Faith and Freedom Summit, but methinks not.

Here are just a few of his “I don’t give a f*ck” quotes that had us in the spin room going nuts:

“Boeing is great! I happen to own a Boeing!” (a plane this website’s founding editor and I had the good fortune to tour).

“The greatest builder is me, and I’ll build the greatest wall you have ever seen! (standing ovation) You know who’s gonna pay for the wall? Mexico! They will be paying for the wall!”

“I won’t imitate the (Chinese) accent because they’ll say it’s racist.”

On Bowe Bergdahl, he said “years ago, we would have shot [him] for treason.”

Want more?  In a room full of reporters, Trump called all reporters “sleazebags.”

Obviously he can say these things because he has the money not to care.  But what’s more impressive is he really doesn’t care.  So while Trump is afforded the luxury of being unconventional and unexpected, he’s also just being himself.

Trump comes from a background that is completely unique.  He is not a Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, or Ben Carson.  Donald Trump is Donald Trump.  He will bring something to the 2016 election that no one else can – the harsh truths and smart quips that no one else is going to dare delivering to the voters.

Trump is going to be good for the debate … I just hope he hurries up and announces already!

Taylor Brown is a 20-something Wofford College graduate who somehow got sucked into politics at an early age.  She is easily won over with Rush’s fast food (obviously), wine, and spirited political arguments.

I couldn’t find the peanuts, popcorns and booze for breakfast. I opted for pasta and booze for dinner. Things should get really interesting closer to midnight ;)

Creepy old man alert. (I’m referring to myself)

Rocky May 15, 2015 at 11:58 am

Hurray – Taylor’s back. Taylor – I wouldn’t say he’s not from a Bush-like family. Wealthy northeast family. Only difference, one in CT the other in NYC. Plus he’s know as a micro-manager. And his allowed his name to be used in rather unethical business practices. But – he’s always entertaining. Glad to have you back.

So, what’s one more clown in an already crowded circus.

$$$ May 15, 2015 at 7:57 pm

This clown actually pays FitsNews for favorable content. So, there’s that…

Am I paranoid? Maybe. May 15, 2015 at 9:15 pm

I’m pretty sure I had a couple of comments surreptitiously and quickly deleted on Trump posts that were particularly brutal towards Trump.

I was surprised, given Will’s track record towards letting comments stand normally.

I suppose if Trumpster didn’t like the comments and told Will to delete them I can understand as it could potentially affect his finances….

Garbage May 15, 2015 at 9:31 pm

You are paranoid no doubt, assuming that was a question. Refresh the site. Bet your comments are there or you were on the wrong page?

Resumé builder May 17, 2015 at 9:24 am

I wonder if Will shared any of that Donald money with Taylor? Surely, he isn’t paying her for all this tripe.

Don’t beat on my main man, Donald Trump, He be rich, sucking up on the big Pepsi’s, farting through silk, sampling the finest twats around. The man is livin’ la dolce vita and enjoying every minute of making us peons envious. Would he make a good President? Who gives a shit, I just want to ride around in his plane, pretending to be important.

TroubleBaby May 15, 2015 at 12:38 pm

“Who gives a shit, I just want to ride around in his plane, pretending to be important.”

The only two people I know for sure that shit on gold plated toilets:

Donald Trump

Saddam Hussein

I want to have that experience myself, but there’s only one around that would give me that chance.

I can ignore that he’s probably Morton Downey Jr.’s twin, separated at birth, if I can have a chance to sit on his golden throne and get it off my bucket list.

erneba May 15, 2015 at 12:44 pm

That’s tremendous, I did not know Trump was passing poop on a gold plated crapper. I hope Trump affords you the opportunity, you can only dream.

Golden Toilets May 15, 2015 at 3:18 pm

I heard there’s a hotel in China that has a golden toilet, something like that. Live the dream, man! Live the dream!

TroubleBaby May 15, 2015 at 3:25 pm

Figures, it’s probably a Buddhist temple or something like that. I’ll probably have to make a donation, before I make a donation.

RogueElephant May 15, 2015 at 12:44 pm

What is the one thing most Americans are sick and tired of ? Politicians, that’s what. Trump is a business man from hell. He has been up and he has been down then back up again. The more I listen to politicians beat their chest and lie to me , the more I like Trump. I have long held that the only candidate on the state level that needs to be a lawyer is the AG. Why not on the national scene ? Something to think about.

Birthers For Cruz May 15, 2015 at 2:22 pm

He contributed money to Hillarys corrupt Clinton Foundation and you like him?

Jonny Logic May 15, 2015 at 1:21 pm

He’s an arrogant, pompous a$$. GOP voters don’t care about the truth anymore, just want to hear someone say stuff loud and obnoxious. Especially if is stupid, wrong, and racist (the trifecta, as they call it).

Force everyone to share May 15, 2015 at 1:52 pm

Ha! You’re using a Socialists avatar.

I applaud you for being honest.
*golf clap*

Daniel Boome May 15, 2015 at 2:12 pm

Nah, you’re close but ever so wrong. It’s not a trifecta, it’s a quadfecta for liberals (when they can’t substantively respond): “racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe”. Just throw out those four rejoinders every time and you’ve got oppositional liberal nirvana.
Nice new avatar, btw. It explains a lot.

Jonny Logic May 15, 2015 at 2:50 pm

If I’m so wrong, provide me with something substantive that Trump has presented, ie a plan that can actually be implemented. Or one from Cruz. Or one from Rubio. Or one from …. You get the point.

And you can’t use Trump’s plan to build a wall on the Mexican border, as that is disqualified for its pure genius.

Daniel Boome May 15, 2015 at 3:11 pm

Google is your friend. Just search “Trump tax plan”, “Trump foreign policy”, etc. Same with anybody else. That’s not really the point. You’re the one who didn’t provide a “substantive” reason for why “GOP voters don’t care about the truth anymore”. You just resorted to the typical mythical rejoinders that liberals always do.
You could certainly say that Bernie Sanders has a plan. But so what? It’s the same failed collectivist stuff that’s been tried at many times and many different places throughout history.

TroubleBaby May 15, 2015 at 9:17 pm

“It’s the same failed collectivist stuff that’s been tried at many times and many different places throughout history.”

That doesn’t seem to stop people from wanting to try some more though…sadly.

Garbage May 15, 2015 at 9:30 pm

Sadly is right.

sparklecity May 15, 2015 at 1:31 pm

Can’t say that I can post much about Trump, everytime I see him on TV I switch the channel.
Come to think of it I can’t even recall the last time i saw him on TV long enough TO SWITCH him off…..

Buz Martin May 15, 2015 at 2:14 pm

Taylor, you know I like you a lot. Can’t agree on this one, though.

Nothing about Trump is refreshing in the least. In general, he is about as refreshing as goat fart, right in the face.

Having Gerry McDaniel working for him, too, is a clear sign he simply doesn’t know where he is at all when he flies into SC.

Granted, the way he comes into the MB area and rags on the Chinese could be seen as being “unfiltered” — but given their increasing prominence and power in the area it could also be put down under the category of having the kind of tin ear common to arrogant, narcissistic blowhards. (Which could also account for the McDaniel hire.)

Not Quite May 15, 2015 at 3:16 pm

Goat farts go away after a while. Donald Trump lingers on election year after election year.

Garbage May 15, 2015 at 8:29 pm

Gerri McDaniel’s won’t have anything to do with this site directly, but happy to have someone else do the dirty work. I know for a fact at least one article concerning Tea Party was driven by Gerri. We can’t make the TP look bad. I was an admin of a TP group, but no membership. Yet I was the one that needed to fix the problem.

What I published was 100% accurate to the best of my knowledge, and data to back. Not sure why I spent time doing their dirty work?

ImpaledNazarene August 28, 2015 at 4:09 pm

Donald Trump is leading.
U mad?

Why won’t Trump show us his birth certificate? South Carolina Faith and Freedom Summit? White Trash will never die,in SC.The inbreeding never stops.

SCBlues May 15, 2015 at 4:33 pm

Refreshing lack of a filter and pathetic lack of a clue . . . yet laughing all the way to the bank. He WOULD go over well in SC.

easterndumbfuckistan May 15, 2015 at 10:34 pm

Trump would be good for America. Good article Ms. Taylor.

(and to all the detractors, yes he pompous and arrogant. He is not a sycophant and he doesn’t need anyone to kowtow to him so basically lobbyist and special interest proof.)
