100 Words -- Open Mouth, Insert Foot

I’ll stipulate that Donald Trump was not putting out a contract on Hillary Clinton when he called those “Second Amendment people” to arms. Verbal gaffes have become business as usual for Trump. He lacks that filter that tells the rest of us when to think it but not say it. Clinton speaks in white papers. Trump speaks in bumper sticker quotes. That’s okay for stump speeches, but eventually you begin to wonder if Trump can be spontaneous AND thoughtful at the same time. If someone can’t even talk a good game, what does that say about how they will perform?
