Man if that article is to be believed, Hillary is running CIRCLES around Trump in the information department. Heck, he's even missing the easy layups too...


Last week’s violent anti-Trump protests in San Jose, which Trump ignored the night they occurred in favor of tweets about an upcoming visit to a golf resort opening in Scotland.

A normal campaign might have held events across California the next morning demanding Clinton and Bernie Sanders repudiate the protests and distributed messaging instructions to surrogates to push the story across cable news. Instead, the story was quickly overshadowed by Trump’s ongoing attacks on Curiel.

The protests would have also been an ideal opportunity to solicit donations from grassroots supporters horrified by the violence, but Trump – who self-financed his campaign in the primaries – is still getting his own small-donor operation off the ground.

"Flog" themselves? Is that the word you meant to use? Because the left is not "flogging" themselves over Trump.

I implied self-flagellation, but I thought flogging might 'get a rise' out of some.

The women he employs make more money than the women Hillary employs.

Regardless, to "flog" means to punish. To "self-flagellate" means to put one's self down... I don't see the left punishing themselves or putting themselves down about Trump. Just kind of curious what you meant. I guess it's like a private joke or something.

Anyway, yeah. He's a successful business man but doesn't yet know what it takes to run a campaign. Maybe this change means he's willing to start listening to someone... ANYONE. It's the only way he'll save his campaign... Of course, who knows if that's what he wants to do...

Perhaps Donald pays more, but he pays men far more than he pays women, while Hillary provides equal pay.

He also only has about 28% women on his staff, while Hillary has 53% women.

Neither fact is good for women.

Trump Campaign Pays Women Less than Men



Donald Trump has paid men on his campaign staff one-third more than women, while Hillary Clinton has compensated men and women equally, according to a Globe analysis of payroll data for both campaigns.


His campaign is also far less diverse, having 9% minorities, while a third of Clinton's staff are minorities.

I think you should have put successful in quotes. I'm not so sure that he is a successful businessman either.

Well to be fair Hillary has been preparing longer. Like since 1975 .

Well Mr. Amateur Hour is going to learn the hard way that shirking proven methods of success for ego-driven madness will only work so long. Eventually you make mistakes. We are all humans. That is why we rely on others for assistance, why we write down methods that work, why we follow algorithms and formulas to achieve results. Though this is something that ego-maniacs like D. Trump can't accept or learn.

Looks like he was fired.



Yes, well, this is The Donald's real reality show after all. Expect to see lots of upcoming people being fired, throughout the show.

FYI why don't you show the demographics of the pool of people there are to choose from for the position and see if the numbers show a correlation

Of course I wouldn't want to ruin your pro Hillary fiesta and Trump flogging.

What if the pool of people to choose from was 80% white males, would it be fair if they only had 30-50% representation in the workforce or its only racist if your a white male

Cut the b.s. already

According to various reports, the Clinton Foundation pays the men who work there 38 percent more than it pays the women. The wage gap, which Hillary has identified as one of the nation's most pressing problems, appears to be alive and well and prospering under her own roof.

That's like Sanders paying 12 an hour

They are so full of # it's unbelievable at least Trump owns what he does and that's a leadership quality

Not these excuse filled windbagss who do whatever the public opinion says they should instead of standing their ground and doing what they feel is right. They are not the type of weak ass leadership we need

Trump to my knowledge has more female managers than male.

I'm pretty sure he was in conflict with other people in the campaign, like Manifort.



Oh, okay... maybe he deserves no place in society let alone a presidential campaign.


Charges were dropped. There was a little scandal about it you should look into, at least for humor's sake. The Trump critics had a field-day with it. Turns out it was as specious as everything else they've tried. It was a good indication of the extent to which some are willing to go, even sacrificing their dignity in the process.


It's not like the charges were laid in haste, they were laid 19 days AFTER the incident and all the hoopla surrounding it, suggesting that some investigation went into the decision. The Palm Beach County State Attorney decided to not prosecute after having a "personal conversation" with Trump, though he did have this to say: "They (police) acted well within their authority to investigate and make an independent charging decision. We agree that probable cause exists for the Jupiter Police Department to charge Mr. Lewandwoski in this case".

I don't think the claims surrounding the altercation were as specious as you believe them to be.

Trump is spending money now, as an investment.

He figures, once he gets into Office, he'll change the tax laws, and "recoup" all that invested money and more from paying lower taxes on his income.

As he said several times, he has money abroad that he would like to bring back into the US, but the current tax rates are unfavorable to do so.

So, that's his master plan. More money for the Donald in the future, worth the little bit of investment upfront now.

The Donald sees the presidency as purely a "business opportunity".

Likely to be much more lucrative than "The Apprentice" ever was.

Of course, he has to win the election to profit. But all investment involves some risk.

Trump is a yellow-bellied weak-chinned example of a leader.

If he becomes president I wonder how long he will keep that jaundice coloured tan when he comes up against real problems that cannot be bought away or fired.

His arse will bounce so hard it'll be like he sat on a pin... His hair might fall off.
