  1. Proud Boys threaten to act and pledge allegiance to Trump after he tells the far-right group to 'stand back and stand by' after refusing to condemn them during presidential debate

    The Proud Boys were celebrating online Tuesday night after Donald Trump told them to 'stand back and stand by' during the first presidential debate. Members of the far-right group posted about the shout out, telling the president: 'We're ready.' Their account on the social media app Telegram posted: 'Standing down and standing by sir.' Proud Boys is a far-right organization that admits only men as members and promotes and engages in political violence. The group believes white men and western culture are under siege. 'Proud boys, stand back and stand by, but I tell you what, somebody has got to do something about antifa and the left because this is not a right wing problem, this is a left-wing problem,' Trump said when he was challenged to condemn white supremacists during Tuesday's presidential debate. He claimed the protests in the country on race relations were a left-wing problem. The Southern Poverty Law Center, a liberal advocacy organization, has designated the all-male Proud Boys as a hate group. The group is known for its violent clashes at political rallies.

    GOP pollster sees Trump-Biden debate as embarrassing, says it 'encouraged people not to vote'

    If this is the case then you could say Trump won.  He discouraged enough voters in 2016 with the scorched earth approach which allowed him a narrow victory with his very ardent supporters.

    Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum argued Chris Wallace put Trump in a box by asking him to condemn white supremacists because "it's something he knows the president doesn't like to do. Which is say something bad about people who support him."
     

    It wasn't a box but a paper bag which Donald Trump was incapable of fighting out of.

    Do you have an issue with the fact, that for some years (how many we don't know) you paid more in taxes then Trump? 

    To me the ones that should be most angry are the those in the 3% to 5% wealth range in the USA.

    E.g.   I pay an average of 80K a year in Federal income taxes.      But I'm a working stiff;  I.e.  I can't use all of those scams and tricks selfish greedy a-holes like Trump and other in the top 2% use to avoid paying taxes.

     

    You mean the same 2% who virtually pay no tax who now got a huuuuuuge tax cut from his nibs?  Including the inheritance tax business which virtually no one payed anyway except the ultra rich.  Someone will have to pick up the tab for this and it ain't going to be the top 2% as Trump promised in 2016.

    And his supporters just shrug their shoulders about it. That is more concerning than even the scoundrel himself because they might keep him in office. Having a morally bankrupt man as President of the United States who intentionally divides the nation doesn't bother them.

    His most ardent supporters are also bent on dividing the nation.  They are at war with people who are even a bit more liberal than they are.  That is the entire point of this thread.

    Reposting this from yesterday. Trump in 2015-2016 campaigned on a promise to stop scummy rich people from ripping off the deserving middle class. He promised to raise taxes on the rich. That promise helped him then, which is why the $750 hurts him now.

    Fascinating interview. Mr. O’Donnell,frmr. Pres. of Trump Plaza Casino, says needs to be asked not just “Who’d you borrow $421 million from?” But also: “Who guaranteed the $421 million loan for you?” Trump’s daddy used to. Who’s your daddy now, Donald?

    Jack O'Donnell, former president and COO of the Trump Plaza Hotel, says President Trump "sets his businesses up to fail from day one." "There was no way his casinos could be successful," he says. http://cnn.it/3cFHojZ
