Conservative radio host Dr. Gina Loudon, a founder of St. Louis Tea Party and former Wife Swap contestant, asserted that Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Brussels proved that Donald Trump was a “visionary.”
As voters were preparing to select their GOP primary choices in Arizona and Utah on Tuesday, Loudon told Fox Business host Trish Regan that the bombings would drive turnout for Trump.
“We’re looking at the real problem of adherent Islam being the true problem,” she opined. “Voters are going to have to come down on one side or the other, Trish. Either Donald Trump is a bombastic idiot who happens to be very lucky or he’s a visionary, citing the fact that he talked about [Osama bin Laden] — named him — before the 9/11 attacks.”
“He talked about illegals [sic] coming over from Mexico right before Kate Steinle was then killed, and he practically called that one,” Loudon continued. “He talked about Brussels before it even happened. People are going to have to take a look.”
According to the conservative commentator, Trump’s call for a temporary ban on Muslims was supported by up to 80 percent of GOP voters.
“This works for him,” she insisted.

White House adds 20 percent increase to ‘best case’ projection of coronavirus deaths
The White House is moving the goal posts once again. Instead of taking drastic action, like asking every state's governor to mandate a quarantine to reduce the spread of coronavirus, it is quietly upping its projected death toll, just one day after stunning Americans with a six-digit death rate.
On Sunday President Donald Trump told Americans he thinks if 100,000 Americans die from coronavirus he will have done "a very good job."
On Monday Dr. Deborah Birx announced the White House is projecting 100,000 to 200,000 deaths.
Tuesday evening, the number increased 20 percent.
Olympic athletes in ‘impossible position’ – Canada
Canadian Olympic chiefs said Monday the health and safety of athletes had prompted the country's decision to withdraw its team from the Tokyo Olympics amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A day after Canada became the first team to announce its withdrawal from the July 24-August 9 Games, Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) chief David Shoemaker said athletes had been left in an "impossible position."
With public health authorities urging individuals to stay inside to curb the spread of COVID-19, athletes had been caught between a desire to heed health and safety advice while trying to minimize disruption to training programs.
Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
