Trump in his latest tweet has gone too far with his sexism. I think it is very clear what he means when he says no more Bushes. Women shouldn't have to shave it if they don't want to. He won't survive this one.

I am voting for him....I like him more and more each day! He doesn't give a flying fornication what people say about him....He will get us the truth! Go big Donald!!! I love it


He would be terrible in international negotiations and diplomacy though. He's no George Washington. He would get more Americans killed than all of the past dozen presidents put together.

He's only there to divide Republicans so that Hillary can win. Our only hope is to push Sanders and or a Moderate Republican that isn't named Bush. Show me a moderate Republican again who can win this election?

On the surface I would tend to agree that "pig" is not particularly offensive, however it is extremely common for women's sexuality and appearance to be proposed as their primary trait whenever you can't win the argument on merit in America, and it works so effectively that trump excused it by saying it is "fun" for him to go on Twitter and reduce serious disagreements to insults that effectively mean 'why listen to a woman you don't wanna screw'.

Trump is not merely being insulted for his appearance. Trump is being insulted because he lacks the substance and refinement to be a world leader. He should return substantive insults. He should be intelligent enough to deconstruct the attacks on him and make Rosie O'Donnell seem beneath him, but he couldn't do that with intelligence, so he did it with her appearance, and he did it because he knew prejudice would make it work for him.

Trump is a liar like all politicians. He will continue the mass incarceration and random summary execution of African Americans, and he will allow America to remain the only developed nation where a pregnant woman is expected to either depend on a man or continue working into the third trimester, as if their enormous role in perpetuating our existence is a parasitic one that we have no stake in nor responsibility to protect.

Trump needs to bow his head in shame and let intelligent civilized people discuss the fate of their country without his pathetic attempts to stay as famous as the Kardashians, which is what this is all about really; he knows he won't win, he's merely debasing the process and encouraging ignorance and prejudice so he can be seen acting as though he were superior to people who are in fact far beyond him in wealth, class, power, and knowledge.

Latest poll has Teflon Trump up by 21 points.

Their going to have to get somebody badder than Megan Kelly to take down Trump

It’s Time to Stop Writing Donald Trump’s Political Obituary





In a Morning Consult national survey conducted over a three-day stretch that ended Sunday—aka after the debate—Trump led the pack with the support of 32 percent of self-identified Republicans and Republican-leaning independents—nearly three times the support of his closest challenger, Jeb Bush, who was the first-choice of 11 percent of respondents. Trump’s 21-point lead was well outside the online poll’s margin of error of 3.59 points. According to the pollsters, there was “no evidence” that Trump’s support was slipping even after he told CNN on Friday night that Kelly had “blood coming out of her [pause] wherever” during the debate. (For numerical context: RealClearPolitics’ rolling national average had Trump with an 11.8-point lead on the GOP field heading into the debate.)

He is considering signing the third party pledge.

An Independent cannot win. Perot got "ZERO" Electoral College votes.

Trump might as well sign. But, they are now treating him a little nicer.

I think we have to read between the lines of Trumps demands for niceness.
What he's really telling them is don't throw me out like Colbert or probe my financials like you really had to worry about beating me, or handicap me in the counting room like you did to Paul, because I have the money to spoil the election out of spite if you don't just let me run my bully campaign as a marketing gimmick.

This is reality TV with the best ratings in the country as far as Trump is concerned. I don't think he has any intention of giving up control of his own narrative or his finances, entering a position of accountability he can't walk away from, or risk arousing the kind of hostility you can't ignore (the kind that can dig into your closet for skeletons and put you in jail) from people who are in the power business instead of show business.

I don't believe he will make the moves needed to win- he will run a great media and online campaign with no grass roots and weak state organizations, few endorsements and allies, and no superdelegate support in the convention, and will ultimately lose- his dream come true would be to win the popular vote and be deprived of the nomination at the convention.

But it's much more likely that he will limp through February under-performing polls and losing Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, probably in 3rd or 4th place most of the way through, but hoping for a strong show in Nevada that he can astroturf into being from just two big events in Las Vegas and Reno.

Once he has data showing how much he is hurting somebody (presumably Chris Christie as the other bully candidate and Carly Fiorina as the other business candidate) he'll sell off his withdrawl and endorsement ahead of March 1. I wonder if there's anything the Governor of New Jersey can offer an Atlantic City Casino owner.

I really doubt Trump would waste a dime of his money going 3rd Party.

With Perot putting all that effort in and not receiving a single Electoral College vote.

You have to admit. He could be second or third in the polls and still matter.

If he takes a sliver of the vote...that would be all it took for President Hillary.

A Network may pay for Donald's third party run. Why would Trump be so bad ?

We are 18 Trillion Dollars in Debt. Have you seen that debt clock ?

At this point Pauley Shore or Cheech or Chong couldn't screw it up any worse.

I also don't think he will run independent, at least not to win, but although I don't think he's a billionaire he definitely can afford to run a spoiler campaign in key states just out of spite and gain plenty of publicity out of it, so it's not beyond the pale if they force him to choose between being put in his place or "going rogue" to save face.

And there are some really fascinating possibilities for a third party candidate even if they can't win (and I don't think Perot proves 3rd parties aren't viable actually- Perot wasn't in it for a long fight and if he had been I think he could have frozen the Republicans out of the white house and forced them into a congressional coalition over the course of 4 elections, and then it would be a matter of time until they made their electoral splash.

Consider what would happen if Donald Trump received zero electoral votes, but caused one or two swing states to go Democratic, resulting in an electoral tie between the Republican and Democratic candidate, who would then go to the Senate to be chosen between, with the third highest vote getter, Trump, excluded. He could strut around like he made the President.

But it gets better. What if Cruz were nominated and Trump went all birther on him in that situation? What if Cruz's was thrown out by the SCOTUS and Trump was the only Republican standing in Congress, with no clear comparison in popular vote, because nobody can agree if you count Cruz popular vote as people who would now want trump or not.

He really does act like spoiled child. The man can not take the slightest bit of push back without losing his mind. Could you imagine this guy in any office? He would be running naked down the street screaming on day one.


I don't think a billionaire that finances himself will be running in the streets. However, literally EVERY other candidate will be running to corps for money...in the streets I guess you could say?

It costs half a billion dollars to run for president.

If Trump really has ten billion that's 5% of his net worth- enough to wipe out his liquidity and double his debt at the same time.

If the author who said Trump is actually worth around a quarter billion and defeated Trump's slander suit is right, he could never even touch the general election on his own.

Trump tells on himself with his anti billionaire influence rhetoric while boasting he can run on his own- he's just a guy with a couple hundred million who can crash the primaries and say whatever he wants- he can potentially have an impact and get his money's worth in this but he can't go all the way and he wouldn't want to.

Trump's comments are like a form of free advertising for his brand. Putting aside the fact he is most likely a plant from the Hillary Clinton camp, Trump is engaged in a Branding exercise. A modest budget will see him conduct his marketing campaign until the primaries get serious and later on an indie campaign in the main race.

The GOP is a very slow moving train moving wreck whose failings have invited Trump to enter the race and loons like Cruz to rule the day. History is going to be unforgiving towards the Republican Party gross failings.

You do realize to run he had to submit his financials. Which he did he's a billionaire alright. His campaign claims in excess of 10 billion. He owns a lot of property. And I'm his 92 page filling this is huge for a presidential candidate most properties are just listed as in excess of 50 million, Meaning the property could be 200 million.

And he wasn't required to prove it's value or that the values used on that form are the ones he used at tax time. They aren't screening out non billionaires; there is no advantage beyond ego to overstating and thus no audit of high values- they don't want you HIDING interests.
I could file financials with the FEC valuing my beard at half the money in the world plus free beer for life and have it accepted as long as I didn't cover up the fact that Vladimir Putin owns a majority stake and is on the board of directors at my beard.

Edit to add: Consider this birther karma. I want the government's paperwork on what Trump really is, and he needs to release it.

You could but your financials aren't scrutinized by economists like Trumps financials so your point is silly. When he lists a property at over 50 million and they say it's worth may be 300 million. Economists were always curious what he makes now they know what he owns. In other words there is no doubt he way underestimated his net worth. So I'm not sure of your point but even with that still a billionaire. And financials are revenue based on what he makes and doesn't concern property value.

Ya he will......Really he will survive and thrive. The people listening to him could care less about political correctness. They want......Need this it seems.


I find him repugnant but I will vote for him for a couple reasons.......Both sides are attacking him and that makes me think he is on to something. And he does not just spout the typical progressive talking points. All the others are bought and paid for and push a pathetic crippling progressive ideal that enslaves the people that buy into it.

My point is that temp inherited a fortune with somebody else's name on it, put his name on it, ruined it 4 times, and then made a cottage industry out of pretending everything was ok so he could continue to take on debt that he had no means or intention to pay and we don't need him meddling in or already precarious economy.

Furthermore my point is that he isn't actually big enough to be independent politically, and he certainly isn't beyond having to do what rich and powerful people say, because a real plutocrat could make him the next OJ Simpson financially speaking just for amusement.

Well your point would be wrong trump never declared bacnkruptcy. You obviouly don't understand business enough to know.His corporations have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy four times. This happens especially when a business is pirchased. Chapter 11 allows them to restructure debt and keep the doors open. Meaning they don't have to close the business. Any billionaire will have corporat one that go through chapter 11. The only rule is it can't do out twice.

And just so you know Donald Trump never person ally filed for bankruptcy and never has been broke you bought into a myth.
