I think it’s time for Trump to shut the hell up. Well, maybe not shut the hell up, but just have his vocal chords removed. Well, maybe just one vocal chord would do it. Yeah, that’s the ticket. One vocal chord.

I think his brother George made an interesting point about Jeb’s profile on LinkedIn, but jeez, George looks like a weatherbeaten little old shrimp boat when he stands alongside Jeb.  I would say, though, if he’s going to speak in praise of Jeb’s manliness and related leadership qualities, George should get a pair of bullhide elevator Ropers (sort of like like Marco’s man-me-up flamenco boots). Otherwise, who will believe him?
