Well, we called it , he's out..... started and ended... was It the small hands?

I was curious as to how long he would have been able to stay afloat. ..

Was it just the lies and so forth. Who will be next?



Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who ran for president offering his youthful optimism and Cuban-American heritage as the embodiment of a new and more diverse generation of Republican leadership, but ultimately failed to galvanize voters in a much darker mood, said on Tuesday that he was suspending his presidential campaign.

Mr. Rubio made the announcement during a speech at his campaign headquarters in Miami after losing his home state by a large margin to Donald J. Trump.

Mr. Rubio, 44, was felled by many of the same forces that drove other contenders from the race: a deep anger at the Republican leadership, a level of mistrust among the party’s most motivated voters, a field of candidates splitting up the vote, and an inability to stop Mr. Trump from exploiting all those factors.

But Mr. Rubio also notably lacked what both Mr. Trump and Senator Ted Cruz could boast of: victories in a string of early nominating contests. Mr. Rubio carried only Minnesota, along with Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, sapping his campaign of critical energy and fueling the perception — no matter how hard he tried — that he was incapable of winning the nomination.

Please clarify when being sarcastic.

Some people around here would actually think you are being serious.

Rubio came up a bit short.

Kasich still has a chance. He has won his first state. Ohio , his home state. Now if he can win all the rest of the states with a high vote count in each state (90%),,,,,,second thought-,maybe not

Rubio burned a lot of bridges when he got elected running on, among other things, a promise to fight amnesty at every level, and then he got to Washington and got into the Gang of 8 which was ... amnesty.

Oh, no! Now that Kasich has won a state the media will declare the primary over and Kasich the winner. Trump is done.

To "Suspend" does not mean anything other than he will continue to raise money and stay in in the shadows, still ready to do as he is told to including being at the convention ready to step up like a big boy if asked to.

No they won't. Trump is a media creation.

Trump's orange and pink combedover mug is on the TV more than another face in this country. He has a team of surrogates who do nothing but hop from panel to panel doing damage control on the stupid crap that Donald Trump says.

Donald Trump opens every rally with his spiel about how the media does nothing but lie about him [because the establishment hates him] — in front of a coral full of media.

Yet the media LOVES Donald Trump because the whole spectacle of it has people tuning in.

You want to know how the media actually kills somebody's campaign? THEY DON'T COVER IT.

P.S.



Do you think the feuds in wrasslin' are real too?

The media loves watchers/listners/readers/clicks. Because that equals $.

Donald Trump's outrageousness means people watch/listen/read/click. Hell, *I* click, and I'm sort of tired of the circus.

That doesn't mean they love Trump. They just love $.

You're right about the coverage, though. They ignored and laughed at him until they realized there was money to be made.

Yaayyyyy🙌. At this point honestly, it's Soooo crazy. VP Joe Biden could jump in and probably win. This constant back and forth bashing will make me pick the less of many evils.

Prediction. If Trump and or Clinton wins. A grassy knoll and "Dallas" situation could happen. Everything is that vicious at this point. Everyone is that divided anymore.
I think I'll take a job mining the moon indefinitely. Or better yet a one way ticket to Mars. 🚀🌛🍻
