In his press conference just now, instead of admonishing the Russian government for hacking American emails and tampering with the election Trump has just encouraged them to do more!  He hopes that they have State Department emails from Hillary Clinton and will release them to the public.

I would think that this is not only dangerous but completely treasonous.  But if it suits his purposes, does Trump care about that?

 

I see a major difference between hacking private \ Non Government servers and hacking of private ones like the DNC or HRC own server.    

 

Of course no one (foreign government or private citizens), should hack any type of server.   Of course that didn't stop the U.S. Government under Obama from hacking into our own allies servers and other forms of spying.  

 

Clearly if Russian Government agents hacked into HRC private server and got access to classified US document that is a major concern but since the US Government is attempting to do the same 24 \ 7,   I don't see how they can really make a beef about this. 

 

At the end of the day, if Russia got access to docs on HRC private server the shame and blame is all on HRC.

The New Yorker has a good article about Trump's Art of the Deal ghost writer, Tony Schwartz who now regrets 'creating a monster.'

http://www.newyorker...riter-tells-all

It may be that's trump difficulty with a teleprompter has something to do with his attention span.  Aslo of note is that over the decades Trump has somehow convinced himself that he, himself wrote that book.

 

“I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”

Yeah, Eddie Munster. LOL.

lets jump to the crux of the matter, shall we?

 

I accept that hillary clinton may have done nothing illegal that is discoverable but why was it so important for her to have a private server in her home??? :huh:

I'm not a fan of the Clintons but Trump is really stretching when he claims that there are two sets of rules for prosecution of classified documents cases and uses as an example people who gave away secrets to others that were not on a security list.

Hillary Clinton did no such thing.  She passed on classified documents to people that were allowed to see them.  It is the method that she used that is under scrutiny, not whether she 'gave away' secrets.  In this sense this is just more GOP untruths and it is interesting to see who is piling on.

I wouldn't want to be in any kind of business deal with

Donny. He had a tweet out today about the SC decision

on abortion that said something like If only Scalia were

still there or if only Trump had a chance to appoint a

new SC member, missing the fact that it was a 5-3

decision, so another judge wouldn't have made any

difference. Maybe it's hard to count with those little

fingers.

 

LMREO!!!!

His net worth dropped from 5 billion to 4.9 billion so he

is no longer one of the elite. I just love these poor blue

collar saps being taken in by Donny. It's the best "reality"

show he's ever done. There was an article in the paper

last week about all the contractors he stiffed on one of

his failed projects. Think it was the Taj Mahal. Most

of them received a fraction of what they were owed and

some got nothing. The King of Debt strikes again.


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

he covered that on tuesday when he said he used to be one of the elite...

 

and now he isn't. :D

 

Now he isn't?   I guess that's why he hasn't brought his own manufacturing jobs home as yet?  There really is one born every minute.  Another good argument for birth control.

In 2013 Trump was all for the current international trade deals such as NAFTA.  But I guess that doesn't play with courting ANGRY disenfranchised white American voters.

“I honestly don’t think this ‘fact-checking’ business ... is anything more than one more out of touch, elitist media-type thing,” Lord said. “I don’t think people out here in America care. What they care about are what the candidates say.” 

 

 

So says Jeffrey Lord, CNN pundit and Trump supporter. 

 

 

Jeffrey forgot to mention not only "WHAT the candidates say", but also HOW the hell they SAY it!

 

And of course, because ANOTHER thing "people out there in America" now days seem to "care about" is that ANY candidate who presents their arguments to them expressed at higher than an 8th grade level, is SOMEHOW an "elitist" TOO!

 

(...and REGARDLESS how factual or not those arguments might be)

Trump's surrogates are left scrambling tonight as the emperor backtracks on his total Muslim ban.  Asked what Trump means by 'vetting' and 'until we know what is going on' they all begin to sound like incoherent blithering idiots.

In a speech the other day Donald Drumpf stated that when he becomes President he is going to punish American companies that send jobs overseas.  Well, why doesn't he set an example by folding all of his own companies?

Similarly, he criticized the Clintons for taking money for their charitable foundation from foreign countries such as in Arabia and Russia.  Countries that Trump seems to frown upon and thinks that somehow the Clintons will now be beholden to them.  This while at the same time Drumpf does business with the exact same countries in order to build his towers.  The difference though is one of these is for charities like AIDS and the other is for the enrichment of one person only.
