Maybe I missed something.

What are you having a hard time with?

Trump appeals to racists doesn't mean all his supporters are racist.

A female might appeal to women but that doesn't mean all her supporters are women.

So when someone says the tough guy act worked with the racist GOP electorate he is only referring to the part that is.

Just gonna leave this here since all the anti-Trump people can do is accuse Trump and Trump supporters of racism.

Really?

I've heard people criticize Trump without using that card.

Maybe some like focusing on that because it is the easiest thing to defend against. Even when nobody mentions it they bring it up.

Trump just did what few politicians have ever done.

Admit he was wrong.

Gotta applaud that.



he is not paid to speak from a teleprompt like the rest of them. i do wish he would think more and speak less.

Yep but not all play the card so it isn't all anti-Trump people can do.

Having Johnson support the TPP and open borders is a no go for me. Stein is in support of an AR ban also no good.

All I can say is ...REALLY, this is what us Americans get!


I am unsure how "closing" the borders would change anything. Johnson is for immigration reform. He has also had a lot of experience dealing with the immigration issue being gov of New Mexico and all.


During an interview with The Texas Tribune on April 12, 2016, Johnson discussed immigration and other topics. Johnson said, “I think we should make it as easy as possible for somebody who wants to come into this country and work to get a work visa. I’m not talking about a green card. The solution is to create a moving line. Don’t put the government in charge of quotas. There will either be jobs or there won’t be jobs. And a work visa should include a background check and a Social Security card so that taxes get paid.” Johnson also said that “there should be a pathway to citizenship, and there should be an embrace of immigration as something really good. They’re not taking jobs that U.S. citizens want.”

During Part 2 of a Libertarian candidate forum that aired on the Fox Business Network on April 8, 2016, host John Stossel asked Gary Johnson what he would do about illegal immigration. Johnson replied, “I would make it as easy as possible for those illegal immigrants to get a work visa as long as they haven’t committed any crimes.”


Gary Johnson on Immigration

I just wanted to point out his actual position on it.

Also, on a side note, I do find it a bit odd that GJ would support the TPP agreement. However, has anyone ever read it, I don't mean that in a smart a$$ way, but it's like over 5k pages long, TL;DR. I don't think even the writers have read it.

This is what I found concerning his stance on it:


It is my understanding that the TPP does advance free trade,” says Johnson, “Is it a perfect document? Probably not. But based on my understanding of the document, I would be supporting it [though] in a perfect world there wouldn’t be a document like that, there would just be free trade.

Sorry, didn't mean to derail a bit. I gotta say though, as someone who isn't a Trump (or Hillary) supporter, I am a little surprised but more pleased that someone in his position would admit/regret his faux pas. But really, I only care to hear about policy and debates, so it hasn't really swayed me.

As fake as his spray on tan. Fakeass faker. He's building his brand for the last segment of society that doesn't realize what a shyster he truly is. He's essentially running out of suckers. I mean how many people are gullible enough to buy more than one Trump suit or Trump steak or give their life savings for a worthless Trump Univ. degree. And working people will have enough of republican BS after this. They are being used by the most cynical bunch of social engineering douche bags in American history. But they are good people and they will wake up after this.

I doubt many have read all of it (myself included), however the gist of what I gather is more cheap goods brought in from overseas.

Here is a good start: inthesetimes.com...

The TPP supports big business in a global way.

So Trump played the 'I'm the bigger person card', just to reconnect with the voters, just to appear as 'human'...
It's Trump, so it's all a show, that's all it's ever been.

His entire campaign is one huge publicity stunt.
I'm not an American and I hate Clinton more than Trump, I believe he is the lesser of 2 evils.
God speed America.

Thanks, I'll read that article when I get a chance. I still support GJ though. To me, he's the most level headed out of all of them. But I suppose that is easy for me to say being a libertarian. I respect everyone's choice to vote who they want but I really dislike the two-party system.

No, I was pointing out the absurdity of the anti Trump rhetoric and hatred.

That's what I said.

The problem for you is that either way, anyone defending Trump's words had the rug pulled from under them when Trump accepted that he was wrong. No matter how absurd you might think anti-Trump rhetoric and hatred is, you were still defending Trump's mistakes.


Actually I have never defended any Trump mistakes.
I have defended him against those who would seek to create a mistake out of nothing in order to further a narrative, but that is very different.

Trump took the lead in the LA Times Daybreak poll today...
Trump 44.2
Clinton 43.6

A week ago, before Trump's series of brilliant speeches, they had Clinton at +5

Seems to be the go to narrative when they run out of fake controversy to peddle.

Imagine a scenario... Hillary and Trump where the captains of sinking ships, which one would you put your money on to help others and go down with the ship and which would be the first into a life boat??....

I also think Trump would have a f#cking amazing handshake, not that limp crap that the millenials use, a good firm look you in the eye handshake. The short of handshake that would seal the marriage to a daughter, the type of handshake that you get after a really good hard fought sports event where both of you ended up blooded and exhausted but the respect flows.. The type of handshake you get after stopping at the side of the road in the middle of no where to help a guy that hasn't got the right breaker bar for his truck to mend a flat but you do....

Every example you gave sounds like it came from a Bush era Budweiser or Ford commercial.

How can sane people argue against people who think like this?!


You don't argue, you just look into Hillary Clinton's steel blue eyes, eyes that remind you of the rocky mountain sky or cracking open a Pabst Blue Ribbon - working man's beer. And you know when you look in her face that she's going to win whether you like it or not. God damn that's alpha - a real man's man woman.
