Media seize on man behind Trump at Florida rally

See a familiar face behind the podium at this Trump rally in Florida?  The chap in the dark blazer over the red polo shirt?  That's disgraced Republican representative Mark Foley of the homosexual sex scandal that helped the GOP lose control of the House of Representatives in 2006.

A semi-closeted gay, Foley's suggestive e-mails to congressional pages, some of whom were below the age of consent, helped feed the Democrats' "culture of corruption" theme in the 2006 election.  The four years of Democrat control that followed did untold damage to Ameria, including the passage of Obamacare.

Once again, I have to ask: if Trump were not trying to lose, what would he do differently?  Hillary's people handed him an issue with the image of the bizarre Muslim father of the mass murderer who shot up an Orlando gay bar.  And two days later, Trump does this?

Occam's razor.  At what point does a series of self-inflicted wounds stop looking like rank incompetence and start looking like deliberate self-sabotage?

Rick Moran adds:

This is a false comparison. How many people did Foley murder in the name of Jesus? This story is everywhere this morning because the media are doing their duty as they see it.

Thomas Lifson adds:

Wait a minute!  What is going on with the media demonizing a homosexual?  Is Trump supposed to be shunning homosexuals?  Note that all Foley did was write emails, while Massachusetts congressman Gerry Studds actually engaged in homosexual relations with an underage congressional page, was censured but stayed in office, and came to be lionized as a pioneer, the first openly homoseuxal congressman.

Katy Tur, please tell me if Trump is supposed to screen attendees for sexual orientation.  Should your father be screened out?   Would you tweet that if he came?
