英会話ブログ その793      The Destruction of the GOP (1)

2016/04/17

During the last Republican party presidential candidate debate, the candidate who is leading the polls, Donald Trump, made a complete "asshole" of himself.  "Asshole" is a "derogatory" (bad) word, meaning "stupid, idiot".  Americans often use this word.

Trump, who is notorious for using bad language, spontaneous insults, discriminatory statements, outrageous comments etc., claimed that he is "well-hung".  This is a slang, for a guy with a big penis.  He also insinuated (suggest in an unpleasant way), that one of his opponets in the debate, Mister Rubio, did not have a big one.

Obviously, Donald Trump is not fit to be the president of the United States, should he get the Republican nomination and win the general election in November.

Up to now, many Americans have felt entertained by Mister Trump's rude, obnoxious, inflammatory remarks and the fact that he has promised to build a wall along the southern border of the United States to keep illegal Mexican aliens out.                                        (V,C)
