Hillary most definitely does not have what it takes to lead anything but a criminal organization. How can you just be like, ' oh yeah she has problems too but they are not as bad as trumps'... that's literally doesn't make any sense.

Bull. No one wanted to beat Patricia Smith. And even if it were true doesn't excuse this. Stop. There are no words to describe the shame of what trump is saying and doing and everyone is condemning him for this atrocity.

The republican party needs to demand an apology from him. They need to disassociate themselves from this ....what ever.


This can't be allowed to fade away like the other crap this clown pulls.
And it won't be.


"This can't be allowed to fade away"

But at the same time you believe that everyone should forget Hillary's emails and just let them fade away.... oh the hypocrisy runs deep today.

Thinking maybe Donald really screwed up this time.

In case we were wondering what it would take. But I think it's cumulative - more and more people are seeing what's what

Top Jeb Bush adviser to vote Clinton 'if the race in Florida is close'

This election cycle is a test,” Bradshaw said, according to the report. “As much as I don’t want another four years of [President Barack] Obama’s policies, I can’t look my children in the eye and tell them I voted for Donald Trump. I can’t tell them to love their neighbor and treat others the way they wanted to be treated, and then vote for Donald Trump. I won’t do it.”


This is what bothers me the most - those people that think he can do no wrong. He'll drop out of the debates - and that will be something his supporters will cheer

Because this is the sort of thing they boo:

Mother of service member booed over Khan question at Pence rally


But then the woman said, “Time and time again, [Donald] Trump has disrespected our nation’s armed forces and veterans. And his disrespect for Mr. Khan … ”

The reaction of the crowd was immediate and fierce, drowning out her words.

The crowd began to boo as she tried to get through her question. The woman, who was subsequently identified as Catherine Byrne of Carson City, continued to speak through the jeers.

“Why are you here?” one woman shouted as the boos rained down.

Yes, despite her sins, Hillary does have the skills and temperament to lead this country. Trump does not.

Whether I vote or not does not mean I am not entitled to my opinion.

I don't think so. She will just use her position to make good on all the "donations" and "speech" revenue she acquired while getting stonewalled by congress and the senate.
What would be scary for freedom and individule rights is if she got a lib judge to replace Scalia and the Dems got control of congress and the senate.

If you condemn Trump for Khangate then surely you condemn Hillary for Smith?


Can you source the Tweet and interviews where Hillary has insulted Pat Smith, her religion, and her family?

It's fairly simple. Hillary does have some issues that I do not like. But she does have the skills to fill the position of president. She knows how the government works, she knows how to be diplomatic, she knows the issues and Trump does not have any of those qualities.

Damn this thread kills me...

Summary time:

Hillary Clinton jeopardized national security and placed countless lives of soldiers and undercover operatives at risk... elect her Presidient.

Donald Trump says something bad about a veteran, he should be drawn and quartered, shot, hung, given a lethal injection, neutered, spayed, head shaved and electrocuted.

Sounds about normal these days.

Not McCain. Are you nuts? (I know you're not ) He has not and never will endorse Trump.
Remember trumps comment about liking veterans who didn't get captured?

The other two need to do more. They need to put distance between themselves and trump if they hope to win their own elections come November.
Trump has become typhoid Mary to the republican party. If they don't do anything and he continues this kind of behavior and rhetoric, which we all know he will because he has no self control, they will go down with him.

Trump did not call out the solider. He said he was a hero. He was not dissecting servicemen and women.

I can understand it. I would be pissed if I though he was calling out the soldier.

There is no tweet. There is a video. Multiple times she has said the following

'I can't imagine the grief she has about losing her son. But she's wrong. She's absolutely wrong.'


and this past Sunday

dailycaller.com...




Clinton replied, “I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said. Read more: dailycaller.com...

She is basically, over and over, saying this women is a liar. Hillary believes if you say it enough it will become truth and it has. S

He attacked the soldier's parents. It was only after the outrage that he walked it back. And in walking it back, he stepped in it some more. This was all sourced earlier in the OP.

Thank you for finally admitting you are a hypocrite...Hillary will be proud of you.

Remember every thing negative Trump does, forget any thing negative Hillary does.

Situation normal.

Islam is a religion, is it not?

Wait...so...is Trump's issue with Musiims or Asians or Muslim Asians or all of the above?

I don't think he has an issue with any of them if they have no ill intent.

He absolutely did endorse Trump. In May. He has not withdrawn his endorsement. John McCain Endorses Trump



John McCain, in one of the odder endorsements of the 2016 election cycle, has thrown his support behind presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, he stated Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, saying it would be “foolish to ignore the will of voters.”




While it’s good to know that Arizona’s senior senator deeply disagrees with Trump, the uncomfortable and inescapable fact remains that McCain still endorses Trump.


McCain Should Withdraw Support for Trump

Stop the presses, Trump said something and everyone lost their minds? The hilarious part is that Kahn mocked and ridiculed Trump long before Trump returned fire, but when Trump says something in defence, when he doesn't turn the other cheek, when he doesn't take it on the chin (because I suppose no one likes a candidate who can insult back), people lose their minds over it.

How can such an inconsistent outrage, double-standards, or two sets of rules exist within a supposedly logical and rational mind without losing it already? In short: A steady diet of propaganda.

You clearly did not understand my post. Those checks and balance are not checks and balances if they are all like minded.

Dear Mr. Khan,

I want to preface this letter by stating that I respect your son’s sacrifice for this great nation. By all accounts, he is a true hero that sacrificed himself in service to our country. For that I am thankful.

As a veteran, I watched your comments at the Democratic National Convention with a mixture of sadness, and anger. The United States has a military comprised of volunteers. Every single member has made the conscious choice to join the military and serve. There is not a single service member who has been forced into service. It is important for all service members (and apparently, their families) to understand that service to this great nation does not imbue one with special privileges or rights. I found your comments troubling when you said: “Have you ever been to Arlington cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America. You will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

Does it matter whether Mr. Trump has sacrificed “…nothing and no one?”…has Ms. Clinton “..sacrificed” for this nation? How about Mr. Obama? Your comment stating that Mr. Trump “…has sacrifice no one” is alarming. Are you intimating that YOU sacrificed? Sir, your son willingly sacrificed himself. As a father I cannot imagine the pain you must feel but his sacrifice is his own. He was not forced to serve.

I am troubled that you would allow a party that has little more than contempt for the US Service Member to parade you into the DNC to denounce Donald Trump. Did you watch when protesters at the DNC booed and heckled Medal of Honor recipient Capt. Florent Groberg? Did you notice your party interrupting the moment of silence for slain police officers? Your own hypocrisy in not denouncing these acts and instead using the DNC as a platform to make a political point is disgraceful. The simple fact is that whether one served or sacrificed does not give greater power to their statements. One vote is as valuable as another. That sir, is why our Country is great. Your condemnation of one person for a statement while standing idly as your party disparages veterans and police officers is the height of hypocrisy.

To conflate the need to prevent potential terrorists from entering our country with the belief that ‘all Muslims’ should be banned is simply wrong and disingenuous. As a reminder, Mr. Trump said: ” “Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life,” The irony of your son’s own death at the hands of these very people in Iraq should not be ignored. I have little doubt that your son would have recognized the need to protect our country from these very people. In fact, he held is own troops back so that he could check on a suspicious car. Your son understood sacrifice and how to protect “his people”…’his soldiers’….’his fellow Americans’…

As you continue to make the media circuit and bask in the glow of affection cast upon you by a party that has little regard for your son’s own sacrifice, and veterans in general, I would ask you to consider your comments and your position more closely.

Respectfully,

Chris Mark

US Marine and Navy Veteran.

The devil is in the details.

Mr Trump's childish and bullying behavior may have been shrugged off or laughed at when he was just a billionaire with a big mouth, but now he's a presidential candidate, so there are different rules.

If he cannot control himself when provoked, the good Lord help us all.
