Donald Trump made an interesting promise at a rally, yesterday. He announced to his audience that everyone sitting behind him, in the path of the cameras, would be famous as a result where they sat at the event. Then he made some inflammatory statements about Seddique Mir Mateen, the father of the deceased suspect who has been dubbed "The Orlando Shooter". Apparently, Mateen attended one of Hillary Clinton's events, and was spotted on camera. Trump proceeded to make him famous because of it. What Trump failed to point out, however; was that at the very moment he was making someone at one of Clinton's events famous, he had a little bit of fame at one of his own events.
Mark Foley, who at one time represented Florida in Congress, was seated behind Donald Trump, in clear view of the cameras. It really wasn't necessary for "the Donald" to promise fame, though. Foley is already well known. Foley was the co-chair of the Missing and Exploited Childrens Caucus, and he sponsored the Adam Walsh Child Safety and Protection Act of 2006. His involvement with those two agendas strongly suggest that he disapproves of child predators and kiddie porn. But then, he sent some sexually explicit and completely inappropriate messages via instant messenger to congressional pages. He resigned during an investigation. So, what was he doing at a Trump rally, seated behind The Donald, himself? Certainly not seeking fame, as he already has it.
