Fright Donald Trump Has Secret Plan to Destroy ISIS by Using Profanity

Donald Trump has a secret plan to defeat ISIS and has explained that he canít reveal its details, lest he tip off the enemy. But a careful study of his rhetoric reveals a crucial aspect of the plan: the strategic deployment of profane threats.

Nixon had a secret plan to end the war with Vietnam, too.

It did end, eventually; but, from the point of view of many people, it did not end well.

I kind of debated where it best belonged. To paraphrase the man himself, it's sarcastic, but not that sarcastic.

Yeah, that's the problem with Trump.

Well, one of the problems with Trump, anyway.

I did assume the article quoted was satire; but I'm pretty sure Trump has actually been claiming to know how to deal with ISIS, but refusing to say how.

Yes, he really does say that he has a secret plan to end ISIS. He also says it's "foolproof."

And yet he stubbornly refuses to actually disclose the plan with Obama or anyone that matters, even though think of all the lives he could save. So obviously Donald Trump secretly supports ISIS, because he knows how to stop them, yet refuses to, allowing them to take the lives of innocent civilians all over the world. Spread the warning around.

Whenever I see this thread I get the feeling that Trump's big plan is to drop bombs containing pig's blood because he thinks that pork products are frightening to Muslims.

Then I think "No, he couldn't be that stupid."

Then I'm not so sure.
