Yesterday, during a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina, Donald Trump claimed that he regretted some of his conduct:
Sometimes, in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues.
I’m not buying it.
This isn’t the first time Trump has attempted contrition. He expressed regret for retweeting the unflattering picture of Heidi Cruz. Of course, that didn’t prevent him from seeing fit to link Rafael Cruz to the JFK assassination – twice and more than two months apart.
Trump wasn’t in the heat of debate when he mocked Serge Kovaleski’s physical disability, demeaned Judge Curiel’s ethnicity or derided Ghazala Khan’s silence. Trump simply borrowed a page from Obama and Hillary’s collection of Alinsky books and picked his targets, froze them and then personalized and polarized.
Give Trump 48 hours and he will add someone else to that list.
The only reason Trump has any regrets now is because he is getting schlonged by Hillary Clinton.
The only thing Trump regrets is losing.
