Was Trump the Chump "set up" yet again? What goes around comes around

I'm not sure anyone has checked the identity of the questioner who brought out even more Trumponian racist phobias this week.

On Thursday (while in New Hampshire) Trump was asked a truly horrible question by a man in the audience who was wearing a white t-shirt with "Trump" printed in black.

"We have a problem in this country, it’s called Muslims" said the questioner. "Our current president is one. We know he’s not even an American. We have training camps growing where they want to kill us. That’s my question, when can we get rid of them?”

Surprise, surprise! Donald Trump was caught in yet another offensive ethnic bruhaha during the "town hall" meeting from the questioner. But, was the buzz-saw Trump ran into a set up, or a deserved "what goes around comes around" situation?

Donald Trump took to his favorite social media, on Twitter on Saturday morning, to respond to criticism on his failure to correct a man who called President Barack Obama a Muslim.

In four tweets, the real estate mogul and US presidential candidate, also an unexplainable front-runner in early Republican polls for the GOP nomination, defended himself for not correcting the audience member at a New Hampshire town hall. He began his "Tweets", opening the series with, “Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don't think so!”

Yet, I believe a person who wants to be the leader of the free world must act like a statesman and thereby bring forth the truth. 

Indeed, "Trump the Chump" had a moral obligation to stand up for the President of the United States. "Trump the Chump" needed to state facts, but he did not do so.  

Obviously, nobody was expecting a Trumponian endorsement of President Obama, because he wants to win the White House for his own ego development. Nevertheless, facts about President Obama's religion and nationality are indisputable. President Obama is a Christian and he was born in the United States. All Trump needed to do was to correct the harassing questioner and all would've been water under the political bridge by now. Nevertheless, Trumponian ego prevailed and he, therefore, missed a leadership moment.

In my opinion, Trump deserved the question he avoided answering during the Town Hall Q & A.  For several years, Trump has stoked the coals of "birtherism", claiming President Obama was not born in the USA because his father was from Ghana.  

Consequently, Trump deserved the horrible question from the yet to be named questioner. Trumponian hate rhetoric had primed the racist question. "Trumponianisms", in fact, inadvertently invited the questioner's outrageous assumption and indefensible question.

Trump  has led his followers to believe in his ridiculous conspiracy theories about Mexicans, about President Obama's religion and nationality and even about the evidence based value of vaccines to prevent communicable diseases.  

Regardless of the motivation behind Trump the Chump's incendiary New Hampshire questioner, the racist statements he has accumulated are providing a preponderance of evidence to nix the entertainment attraction of his outrageous presidential candidacy.

Trump represents the "what goes around comes around" proverb, because of his racist based campaign to be president.  His stump speeches have stoked racism, so he must figure out how to squirm out of the web he created.  Or maybe not.

In fact, Trump might do well to finally bow out of the 2016 presidential GOP race, because his "what goes around comes around" reputation is badly branding the entire Republican party.
