It has started

I think like all conventions they will have crescendo moments, now it is in a lull.

Who do these elites think they are to try this?

Americans with the right to Freedom of Speech? Are there any other rights that should be denied to the people in support of Trump?

ok, I see some troublemakers are still trying to derail Trump at the convention.

I want the names of every one of them, so that I can spread the word and make sure that no one ever votes for them again for any public office. They are going against the will of the people. Who do these elites think they are to try this?


it's people in his own republican party, so now if any of them has something negative to say about trump, you would vote them out?....what next?....would you round up all democrats and put them in FEMA camps, because they have a lot of negative things to say about trump?.....

CBS/twitter livestream just reported that the #nevertrump group is trying to push for a rules committee vote. Unfortunately, I didn't hear the specifics of what they wanted to vote on.
Anyone know?

This is exactly how's Trump being presented as a racist; he says one thing, and then the media ADDS 10 MORE EXTRA LINES to make it sound racist...

You've been taught well. Hillary would be very proud

Hillary Clinton's lies impacted the Citizens (who trusted her).

She was an elected Senator, and an appointed Secretary of State.

Her proven lies and her continuing lies are her downfall.

Trump isn't at her level in the lie department.



Trump is just as big of a liar as she is.

He's just never been important enough to effect as many people.


Hillary is politician...She occasionally lies, but gravitates toward telling the truth.

Trump...Occasionally tells the truth, but gravitates toward speaking utter BS.

Hillary has a moral compass that she orbits, even if that distance of orbit varies at times.

Trump has no moral compass...No moral tether...He does not feel any gravitational pull toward the truth..
To Trump morals are paintings on walls and scruples are money in Russia. He is proudly unapologetic about his dishonesty...Lies are a wonderful and virtuous tool to "Close the Deal" in his paradigm.

Politifact Statements evaluated on the facts

TRUMP ......................VS CLINTON
True (3%) ..................True (23%)
Mostly True (8%)...........Mostly True (28%)
Half True (14%).............Half True (22%)
Mostly False (17%).........Mostly False (15%)
False (40%).................False (11%)
Pants on Fire (19%).......Pants on Fire (1%)

* 59% of what Trump says is "False" or "Pants on Fire" BS and only 11% of what he says is "True" or "Mostly True"

And no...It is not bias reporting. Folks like Paul Ryan...only 13% for False and Pants on Fire....

Trump has exhausted fact-checkers and broken all records.

Does Hillary Clinton lie? Yes...So does every politician and so does virtually everyone in the public, but there is such a thing as False Equivalence

The above is NOT a political statement. It's an objective analysis of whose statements are in keeping with facts.

He has yet to show he is a billionaire. I could say I'm a runway model but that doesn't make it so.

What?

Mister Donald Trump went bankrupt a couple of times, but he ALWAYS GETS BACK. I think it speaks a lot about him. No matter how many times he falls, he gets up.

You can say whatever you want about mister Donald Trump, but that man knows how to make money and how to succeed.


I would too if I started off with a million dollar loan from my father.


The 1 million wasn't bad to start him off, but the other tens of millions in loans from his dad helped him a lot.

Unfortunately even with the ten million dollar illegal loan from his pops he couldn't keep his Trump Taj mahal casino from going under.



His bankruptcy rate is about 5% of all the businesses he has started and any way you cut it he has returned 1,000's of percentage points on his investments. Also loans are a part of business. How much do you think Bill gates borrowed at Microsoft?

You don't really seem to understand business.


The people that do understand business say he isn't very good at it.

Trump Worth $10 Billion Less Than If He’d Simply Invested in Index Funds



Forbes reports Donald Trump is worth $4.1 billion; Trump says $10 billion. Either way, he’d be worth a lot more if he simply retired 30 years ago and put his money in an unmanaged stock fund.

Is it that hard to acknowledge the fact that mister Donald Trump is a successful businessman? Some people, man...

We also acknowledge the fact hillary is not very good at speaking truth and gets caught lying often? One would say it's a skill as well...


I bet Tony Schwartz wishes he spoke up sooner! This convention must seem like a horribly bad dream for him!

Trump is a bloviating thug!


Schwartz thought about publishing an article describing his reservations about Trump, but he hesitated, knowing that, since he’d cashed in on the flattering “Art of the Deal,” his credibility and his motives would be seen as suspect. Yet watching the campaign was excruciating. Schwartz decided that if he kept mum and Trump was elected he’d never forgive himself. In June, he agreed to break his silence and give his first candid interview about the Trump he got to know while acting as his Boswell.

“I put lipstick on a pig,” he said. “I feel a deep sense of remorse that I contributed to presenting Trump in a way that brought him wider attention and made him more appealing than he is.” He went on, “I genuinely believe that if Trump wins and gets the nuclear codes there is an excellent possibility it will lead to the end of civilization.”

If he were writing “The Art of the Deal” today, Schwartz said, it would be a very different book with a very different title. Asked what he would call it, he answered, “The Sociopath.”


A long detailed article that may very well explain why so many Republicans really rather not attend this disaster of a convention.

Nope...

Trump LOVES the media attention...He is not making obscure statements to no name reporters who spin his words.

People have come to conclusions watching his actual words...from his actual mouth...under the spotlight he adores.

You can't blame the media for showing video of him speaking.

Whats really delusional is waiting for that "golden" candidate your holding out for that doesn't lie.

Am I'm sure you NEVER lie, right Jesus?


Dab the sides of your mouth, you seem to be unnecessarily frothing there my dear.

A) you have no idea who I am voting for, nor is it your place to tell me I am delusional for not picking one of 2 liars.
B) Maybe I am a liar about my weight to myself, not to millions of people to get their vote.

You are making me giggle with your crankiness.



Not cranky at all, more amused at your apathy triggered from waiting for Jesus to announce his candidacy.


Newsflash: All politicians lie.

Since no politician can meet your "criteria" you'll never vote, so why follow politics at all then?
