So this is how Donald Trump pivots from his birther message, now that President Obama has vanquished that hideous meme: He unleashes the f-bomb.

In a Thursday night speech in Las Vegas, Trump railed against lawmakers that he described as “blood suckers,” bouncing from subjects like gas prices, Iraq, and foreign trade. “We have weak, pathetic leadership,” Trump said of the Obama administration. “Our leaders are stupid, they are stupid people.”

But that paled in comparison to his expletive-laden zingers on foreign policy and trade. Speaking about America’s military presence abroad, he said:

We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can’t get a fucking school in Brooklyn.

Then, on the issue of oil prices and OPEC, the coalition with control on much of the world’s oil supply, he quipped:

We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that fucking price.

And despite the fact that some of his clothing is made in China, Trump bashed the Middle Kingdom. If elected president, what would his message for China be?

“Listen you motherfuckers, we’re going to tax you 25 percent!” 

Ah, that’ll do wonders for America’s image abroad. Here’s the video:

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
