about that last one, he has to. if they cooperate than donny will do them the great honor of letting them help him get the WH. :)

 

but let me also say this, all of what you list may be so but...

 

has it really bothered the democrats that their standard-bearer told the american people that if they wanted to keep their doctor then they would be able to???

 

does it bother them that their standard-bearer told the american people that if they wanted to keep their healthcare plans, they would be able to???

 

their standard-bearer also made quite an issue (on his own personal initiative) of longstanding conditions in the VA system and told EVERYONE that HE (drum roll please) was finally gonna fix it.

 

he DID NOT...after he said he WOULD.

 

LawrenceA, are these matters to be ignored or minimized? I do not think so. trump is a businessman. he denies it not. is he francis of assisi? plainly not.

 

but just perhaps enough people have figured out that maybe the only way to break the hold of lifelong beltway BSers like hillary clinton over the lives and livelihoods of the common american is to use a rock! :D 

 

donny is that rock and their butts are glass. :)

 

You see everything through your conservative prism. Facts about Trump's character and dubious history, such as Lawrence presented, which disturb and frighten other people about him, are flippantly brushed off by you. Instead of honestly addressing them, you predictably launch into an attack on Hillary or Obama instead.

 

You and Jake and the other Trump followers/worshippers are in such awe of his bragging self promoting personality that you have convinced yourselves, no matter what evidence is produced to the contrary, that this man who has no sophisticated comprehension of world affairs, talking of letting more nations have the nuclear bomb, for instance, will somehow, magically, "fix everything."

 

It must be very comforting for you to settle back and believe this. The problem is you are living in a fantasy world by doing so. The far bigger problem for the rest of us is that people like you can vote.

Does anyone think any of this will make any difference to people like Nipkow or Jake?

 

They don't care that he's a liar.

 

They don't care that he's a sexist.

 

They don't care if he's a hypocrite.

 

They don't care if he's a tax dodger or has mob ties or kicked out people using imminent domain.

 

They don't care that he's declared bankruptcy multiple times.

 

They don't care that most of his businesses have been con jobs (Trump U) or failures (Trump steaks).

 

They don't care if he appeals to or associates with open racists.

 

They don't care that he says he's going to ban Muslims, and then says he won't. 

 

They don't care that he dismisses a whole race/culture as predominantly rapists and criminals.

 

They don't care if he openly mocks the disabled.

 

They don't care if he openly mocks military veterans and war heroes.

 

They don't care that he rails against the loss of manufacturing in the US, but promises to give tax breaks to the people who took the jobs away.

 

They don't care that one day he's pro-choice, and the next pro-life, and then he's pro-choice again.

 

They don't care that he frequently gets into Twitter wars like a hormonal middle-schooler.

 

They don't care that he says he's anti-Republican establishment, and then he gets into bed with every establishment Republican.

about that last one, he has to. if they cooperate than donny will do them the great honor of letting them help him get the WH. :)

so everybody's supposed to be aghast over donny's 25 year-old fone fibs? :lol: what about democrat voters watching their party moving torwards the nomination of a person they themselves must know is not honest? :huh: 

 

just today a feature story on my home page, what sanders has been sayin' all along that HE would have a better shot against trump than a compromised hillary.

 

but the likes of debbie wassername schultz, jennifer granholm and elizabeth 'pocohontas' warren will see to it that it's handed to hilllary.

 

the fact that sanders is still winning primaries doan tell the aforementioned three stoogesses that their gal must be a weak candidate?

 

maybe when donny cracks hillary's iron girdle in november they will get it. :lol:

Another whopper was when Trump was interviewed by Jake Tapper and pretended he did not know who David Duke was or what his organization stood for.  Remember the K K K endorsement of Trump which he did not shed before the upcoming primary?  That should have disqualified the Donald right there and then.

Later he pretended that he did not hear the question properly which was a blatant lie as he himself repeated Tapper's question before saying he didn't know anything about the K K K.

Earth to Donald!  Are you seriously running for President?

a guy with a sense of humor. :D

 

I think, or I hope that you are missing the point.  The offensive bit is not that he was ridiculous enough to pose as his own pr person, it was what he was gossiping about.  Very hurtful to the woman he was supposed to be engaged to.  Stuff that the public really had no right to know.  And he fed it to them.

The latest recordings of the Trump "PR men" from the nineties are further proof if there was any more needed that the Donald is nothing but a shallow narcissist.  The fact that he only now denies that he is the man on the recording blowing his own horn about his sex life goes toward his complete lack of credibility.

Just what you want in your leader.

what donny believes is obvious. to him and hordes of still rational american joes. it started with nafta under that bleep george h.w. bush.

 

by embracing ecomonic globalism we have set ourselves up as the world's biggest suckers and donny proposes to put an end to stupid sell-out propositions that amount to a sabotage of our workforce and manufacturing by..incredibly, american politicians who are the biggest prize stupes of all time.

 

that is why donny is where he is.

 

it's gonna end soon and good ol' donny is gonna end it. 

 

all these trifles about taxes and donny impersonating himself over the phone are hilarious.

 

so he's got a sense of humour. america needs a tiger with some personality. :D

His biggest whoppers of all may be his statements of how wealthy he is. I still maintain, that with his heavy debt, his net worth is far less than most people think.



I've always maintained that most of his wealth is just bank credit.

but it gives credence to trump's notion of jubilant muslims on 911, doan it? :)

Nip-'

What you're basically saying here is that all Muslims are the same or alike.

That's blatantly not true.

Because Muslims that are US citizens have the same civil rights that you have and they have the same protection under the US Constitution that you have.

So what you really should say is that all US citizens are equal under the law and that You, and all US citizens, which of course also
includes Muslim Americans, have the same constitutional rights.

I think I made that very clear.

I liked it when hot and angry Teddy Cruz accused Trumpee for telling the National Inquirer, which Cruz thinks Trumpee owns stock in, that he was cheating on Heidi with five different ladies. Personally I considered that accusation hard to believe. Trumpee would more likely have told the Inquirer that Cruz was having affairs with five men instead.

Another whopper which Trump made to make him appear to be the tough guy was the tall tale of General Pershing dipping cartridges in pig's grease or blood before executing Muslim extremists in the Philippines.  This just never happened.  Part of the story was taken from the rest Mutiny in India circa the 1850's (should check my Flashman).

Trump went on to say that Pershing let one Muslim captive live so that he could tell the story.  Never happened.

This too should have disqualified him as a Presidential candidate as it was intended to appeal to the racists.

Remember when the right applauded that chucklehead Joe Wilson for shouting "You lie!" at the current president? But lying isn't a problem when ole orangutan-in-a-suit does it. When he does it, he's telling it like it is! There's some logic and reasoning for ya!
