New Hampshire Publisher Finds “Crude Blowhard” Trump Like Biff from Back to the Future

From CNN reporter Deena Zaru:

WASHINGTON (CNN) —Ahead of a visit Monday from Donald Trump, the publisher of the influential New Hampshire Union Leader printed an editorial slamming the Republican presidential front-runner’s “public descent into bathroom humor,” and revived the comparison to Biff Tannen from the “Back to the Future” movies.

“Lo and behold, the screenwriter says that he based Biff on Trump,” Joseph McQuaid writes, ahead of the billionaire businessman’s Nashua event. “On Feb. 9, we trust New Hampshire Republicans will send ‘Biff Trump’ back to somewhere — anywhere but on the road to the most important elective office in the United States at a most crucial time for this nation.”

“Back to the Future” screenwriter Bob Gale revealed in an October interview with The Daily Beast that Biff — Marty McFly’s arch nemesis — was indeed inspired by Trump.

“We thought about it when we made the movie! Are you kidding?” Gale said. “You watchPart II again and there’s a scene where Marty confronts Biff in his office and there’s a huge portrait of Biff on the wall behind Biff, and there’s one moment where Biff kind of stands up and he takes exactly the same pose as the portrait? Yeah.”

The best characatures of Trump remain Trump himself. But it is McQuaid’s narrative on Trump the candidate which make voters select someone else:

Trump can certainly be an entertaining character. He toys with TV journalists and dismisses critics with name-calling that drives the Politically Correct crowd insane. But his public descent into bathroom humor and verbal bullying has been painful, and educational, to watch.

According to Trump: John McCain accepted years of torture by the North Vietnamese but is not Trump’s type of “war hero.” Not that Trump ever served in the military. Carly Fiorina, meanwhile, doesn’t have the “face” Trump would want in the White House; and a reporter who questions a Trump falsehood is to be mimicked and mocked for his physical disability.

Trump has shown himself to be a crude blowhard with no clear political philosophy and no deeper understanding of the important and serious role of President of the United States than one of the goons he lets rough up protesters in his crowds.

McQuaid’s newspaper has endorsed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a man known for bullying school teachers when he has bodyguards around to back him up. It also endorsed Newt Gingrich in 2012. Christie will not likely receive many more newspaper endorsements, but it will be more than Trump. Candidates who are fairly characterized as “crude blowhards” don’t get many of those.

 

About Bob Sikes

A long time ago and a planet far, far away I was an athletic trainer for the New York Mets. I was blessed to be part of the now legendary 1986 World Series Championship. My late father told me that I'd one day be thankful I had that degree in teaching from Florida State University. He was right and I became twice blesses to become a teacher in the late 1990's. After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.
