Trump: Is There a Brick Wall Getting in Your Way?

You can walk over the wall or you can obliterate it.
I have to say that I love Donald Trump and have enjoyed every minute of his being a thorn in the side of his opponents of every political persuasion. Case in point: Roger Simon has a post on Trump exposing the lies and hypocrisy of the Clintons:
Not only that, she is accusing her putative opponent Donald Trump of sexism. This is the woman who blamed her husband's affair with Monica Lewinsky on the "vast right-wing conspiracy," apparently imputing magical-mystical aphrodisiac powers to conservatives.
The Donald — you'll be surprised to hear if you've been living on Pluto — has been firing back, sweeping Mr. Hillary, now supposedly about to stump for his wife, into the fray.
"You look at whether it's Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones or many of them," Trump said on NBC's TODAY. "That certainly will be fair game. Certainly if they play the woman's card with respect to me, that will be fair game."
In recent days, the GOP front-runner has been highlighting the former president's affair with intern Monica Lewinsky, saying that Bill Clinton has a pattern of "abuse of women."
As Roger's post points out, Clinton has met his match in Trump--he doesn't back down. But this should come as no surprise to those of us who have read the books on success that Trump has written in the past. I am in the middle of re-reading Trump's business book Think Like a Champion: An Informal Education in Business and Life where he lays out his tactics for dealing with others who don't want you getting in their way:
"Sometimes you just have to be tough. I use the example of a brick wall. Is there a brick wall getting in our way? Fine. That happens. But you have a choice. You can walk away from the wall. You can go over the wall. You can go under the wall. You can go around the wall. You can also obliterate the wall. In other words, don't let anything get in your way. Get a balance, and the let the positive outdistance the negative."
I think many of us are watching Trump obliterate the wall that is Bill and Hillary. I hope he succeeds.
