Bullet proof

I've probably said it hundreds of times regarding this election cycle, but conventional wisdom in 2016 is no longer...uhhh....conventional.

For instance, when "Republican" presidential candidate Donald Trump (whose consistently large lead in the polls is still beyond confounding) makes this claim.....

"I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters."

.......and it doesn't dominate a news cycle for more than 48 hours, you know it's a whole new ballgame.

By the way, do you believe such a statement is more indicative of how arrogant and crass Trump is or how firmly entrenched his supporters have their collective heads in the proverbial clouds?

I'm inclined to believe it's a combo platter.
