Stan Lee, the comic book person, used to do this type of thing. Not quite the same, but similar. Jaclyn Glen and others have a 'publicist' which is actually just themselves.

It's odd. Trump likes self heaps. Not sure its enough for me to bother thinking less or even less of a person.

What's scary is that people are supporting a clinical narcissist. That might spell disaster for us depending on who also supports him in congress and what he's allowed to do if he becomes Pres.


No worries, Trump appeals to the LIVs, that's Low Information Voters, their devotion is almost cult like and they will defend Donald no matter what he says or does.

But Trump will not make it to the convention, much less the election. Health issues; to be replaced by a GOP neocon.

What ever happened to personal responsibility, being held accountable for one's words or actions?

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of threads that hold Hillary and Bernie accountable for their words and actions, but if someone tries to point-out Trump's flaws...responsibility and accountability are thrown of the window and the topic is changed to what other people have done.

Trump may or may not have lied about this. Hillary on the other hand.

Lied about a whole boat load more and on much more serious topics than who Trumps bumping uglies with..



That's only because Trump hasn't been in office before. Trump's base level of BS is extremely high — he lies just about as much as he tells the truth.

Then again, being a liar certainly doesn't preclude one from being an effective politician.

As I'm typing this, I'm listening to Ben Carson saying, "Donald Trump is not a politician" on TV and going on about how he's so different from other candidates. I think this points to the fundamental issue highlighted by this recording and that is, Trump is no less of a liar than anyone else and in fact, Trump takes deception to a whole new level.

So I'd say the take away here is that people who are supporting Trump because they think his apparent lack of a filter indicates that he "tells it like it is" are deluding themselves.

You keep pointing out the similarities between Trump and Clinton... Point taken. Birds of a Feather and all that.

Trump adds Amazon and its CEO to his list of enemies

Trump says Washington Post owner Bezos has 'huge antitrust problem', using newspaper to protect Amazon monopoly

Amazon CEO orders 20-man army to dig up dirt on Trump



Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lashed out at Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos Thursday, claiming that the founder of Amazon.com was using the newspaper as a tool to influence corporate tax policy.

"Every hour we're getting calls from reporters from The Washington Post asking ridiculous questions," Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "And I will tell you, this is owned as a toy by Jeff Bezos ... Amazon is getting away with murder, tax-wise. He's using The Washington Post for power so that the politicians in Washington don't tax Amazon like they should be taxed."

Trump was responding to Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward's disclosure that the newspaper has assigned 20 reporters to investigate the real estate mogul's life.


Anyone seeing a trend here?

Washington Post, which is owned by tax dodger and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezo, has organized a team of 20 investigators to dig up dirt and smear Trump. No other candidate is being targeted like this, and if the same scrutiny was put over someone like Clinton her campaign would be over.

Apparently the smear campaign has already started... and look where the OP got his article from!

Wake up.

This peanuts compared to what Hillary did in the "early years" of her career. News media is really scraping the bottom of the barrel to find dirt on Trump now, aren't they? If this is the best the opposition can do, it will be smooth sailing right into the Whitehouse for Donald.

Hillary has the entire Right Wing media and propaganda machine digging in to every aspect of her life, since the 90's, and you want to complain about the Washington Post and 20 investigators?

My, how we turn in to little snowflakes when a little negative attention is shown to our Trumpster.

Wake up, indeed.

Are you serious? She shouldn't even be able to run for office with all the scandals she is involved in.

People who have done 2% of what she has gotten away with have had their careers destroyed, look at Petraeus. You think she isn't being protected?

Irrelevant. You made the claim that no other candidate has been targeted like Trump has and that claim is false. Clinton wins that, hands-down.

Make up your mind man. I remember you making a fuss about Trump getting the most press during this election, and admitted 99% of it has been negative.

So now your saying it's the same for all candidates?

Bezo is using the Washington Post to protect Amazons monopoly and tax dodging, and has hired a team of 20 investigators to dig up anything they can find to attack Trump.

Of course this doesn't even phase you as dirty politics.

Yes.

Anything negative said about Trump results in dubious insults and a whole lot of crying about how what a poor poor victim Donald Trump is.

He's inoculated himself against vetting by playing the victim from day one. Anything reported that reflects negatively is a "smear campaign." (the "establishment" is out to get him after all!)


No other candidate is being targeted like this, and if the same scrutiny was put over someone like Clinton her campaign would be over.

Hillary admitting she suffers from decision fatigue

11 anti-Hillary threads out of 35 threads on the front page. We have threads that are created on such asinine premises as Hillary forwarding an email about "decision fatigue" in 2011. This is just today.

Hate her or love her, the objective truth is that Hillary Clinton is probably the most investigated, scrutinized person in human history.

The more you keep talking, the more I'm leaning toward Hillary.

What you are referring to, I believe, was a discussion in which Hillary and Bernie were collectively spend $2 billion on advertising and press. That is what I believe that was about, not entirely sure. But what I shown was that Trump has already received $2 billion in free press, more than any other candidate. And I don't believe I said 99% of it was negative press.



So now your saying this doesn't matter because it's the same for all candidates?


That's not what I said. My post is right above yours. Where did I say that?



Bezo is using the Washington Post to protect Amazons monopoly and tax dodging, and has hired a team of 20 investigators to dig up anything they can find to attack Trump.

Of course this doesn't even phase you as being corrupt, dirty politics.


It is shady. It's just as shady as the lies and deception produced by Fox, WND, Breitbart...etc. For some reason I don't see you complaining about their corruption and dirtiness.

Hmm...

Let's just ignore the fact that Jeff Bezo is using his newspaper, The Washington Post, as a political tool to protect his company, Amazon, from anti-trust and tax evasion laws that Trump said he will enforce on the company just 2 days ago.

And it doesn't stop with just Trump.

Here’s Washington Post’s Coverage of Bernie Sanders. Do You Spot an Agenda?

Assuming that is true, does that change the fact that Trump was apparently his own hype man, being dishonest and disingenuous in the process?

Does Trump take any responsibility for his crooked and slimy actions?

You mean like how Trump's buddy, National Enquirer CEO David Pecker (who Trump said should be the CEO of Time because he'd "win a lot of awards") has published hit piece after hit piece against Trump's political foes with the assistance of the Trump campaign? Trump all the while talks about how the National Enquirer is legit because they've "broken a lot of big stories?" I'll ignore the ones about Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson as the list is just too freakin long.

Ted Cruz:

TED SILENT ON DAD’S PHOTO SCANDAL
TED CRUZ'S FATHER — CAUGHT WITH JFK ASSASSIN

SPACE CASE HILLARY CLINTON PROMISES UFO INVESTIGATION

That's just some of them. I was getting tired of pasting. Meanwhile, here's what was published about Donald Trump:

DONALD TRUMP WELCOMED BY HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN
DONALD TRUMP BLASTS TED CRUZ'S DAD FOR PHOTO WITH JFK ASSASSIN
TED CRUZ ATTACKS DONALD TRUMP—WIVES CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE!
IT'S A BOY — IVANKA TRUMP RUSHED TO HOSPITAL!
DONALD TRUMP GETS THE DUKE’S BLESSING!
WORLD EXCLUSIVE: THE DONALD TRUMP THAT NOBODY KNOWS!

Yet you're being "triggered" by bad things said about Donald Trump — even though they're absolutely true (unlike the National Enquirer stories that Trump plants so that he can later reference them in his attacks on his opponents).

Trump's real genius is in convincing his supporters that he is both a "strong leader" and the world's biggest victim and also that as much as he lies, he's not a hypocrite for giving somebody a nickname like "Lyin' Ted." As much as I dislike him, I have a begrudging respect for his ability to manipulate his followers.

Right, and we're supposed to care? Liberals don't care what Hillary did a few years ago, but pretend to care about something Trump did in his early years?
