When it comes to great urine, you're in luck!  Trump urine  is the world's finest urine and I mean that in every way!  And you can only get it at The Sharper Image.

I Ran the C.I.A. Now I’m Endorsing Hillary Clinton.

By MICHAEL J. MORELLAUG. 5, 2016

 

Quote:

In sharp contrast to Mrs. Clinton, Mr. Trump has no experience on national security. Even more important, the character traits he has exhibited during the primary season suggest he would be a poor, even dangerous, commander in chief.

 

These traits include his obvious need for self-aggrandizement, his overreaction to perceived slights, his tendency to make decisions based on intuition, his refusal to change his views based on new information, his routine carelessness with the facts, his unwillingness to listen to others and his lack of respect for the rule of law.

 

The dangers that flow from Mr. Trump’s character are not just risks that would emerge if he became president. It is already damaging our national security.

MSNBC just showed the Trump campaign's response to Morrell's endorsement, trying to discredit him as a traitor and as a partisan hack (the guy served under both Republican and Democratic presidents). Just goes to show you how everyone is managing to get under Trump's skin right now, and how desperate he is.

This denouncement from the Harvard Republicans is full of incredible mike drops:

 

Quote:
Perhaps most importantly, however, Donald Trump simply does not possess the temperament and character necessary to lead the United States through an increasingly perilous world. The last week should have made obvious to all what has been obvious to most for more than a year. In response to any slight –perceived or real– Donald Trump lashes out viciously and irresponsibly. In Trump’s eyes, disagreement with his actions or his policies warrants incessant name calling and derision: stupid, lying, fat, ugly, weak, failing, idiot –and that’s just his “fellow” Republicans.

 

Quote:
He isn’t eschewing political correctness. He is eschewing basic human decency.
Quote:

Time and time again, Trump has demonstrated his complete lack of knowledge on critical matters, meandering from position to position over the course of the election. 

Donald Trump is a threat to the survival of the Republic. His authoritarian tendencies and flirtations with fascism are unparalleled in the history of our democracy.

No one supporting Trump cares about anything said by a Harvard grad. In fact that probably helps him.

Do follow @darth though, he's been documenting every gaffe since the convention it's brilliant:

I tend to stay out of the marriage scandal stuff (unless, I'm defending Ted Cruz from the ​Enquirer​ - ugh), but Univision just put this out:

 

http://www.univision.com/univision-news/politics/questions-raised-about-melanias-marriage-history

 

Quote:

In an interview with Larry King Live in 2005 Melania Trump said that she had never been married before meeting Donald Trump.

 

But, Michael Wildes, an immigration attorney who worked for the Trump Organization, told Univision's investigative unit that she obtained a green card four years earlier in 2001, “based on marriage.”

 

Melania and Donald Trump were not married until Jan. 22, 2005 at Bethesda-by-the Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida.

post #10068 of 22490

Trump endorsed Paul Ryan moments ago.  Let's go live:

Alex Jones/InfoWars:

 

"OMG, teh pollz are all rigged11!1!!11!!"

 

And also, Roger Stone claims "Soviet-Level Media Disinformation" by, y'know...the media:

 

http://www.infowars.com/roger-stone-blasts-soviet-level-media-disinformation/

 

Quote:

"Staff mutiny at the Trump campaign – one hundred percent false. There's going to be an intervention by Trump's senior staff this weekend – one hundred percent false. Campaign manager Paul Manafort has given up and is now phoning it in – one hundred percent false. This is disinformation, this is something worthy of the Soviets."

 

Stone also refuted claims that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus called Donald Trump to express his anger over Trump's refusal to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan in his primary. Priebus and Ryan are both from Wisconsin and have close ties to Governor Scott Walker, who dropped out of the Presidential race prior to the Iowa Caucuses.

 

Seriously, this is legit-awesome comedy. My wife was wondering why I was laughing so hard just a few minutes ago.

post #10071 of 22490

Republican Donald Trump has a message for reluctant voters: "If you don't like me. That's OK," he tells a rally crowd in Des Moines, Iowa. "Vote for Pence because it's the same thing."

 

I wonder if that made sense to anyone outside of the crack-addicted hamster that lives in his head.

Christ, Rick Santorum just needs to shut the fuck up right now. Listening to him trying to discredit not only Merrick Garland, but also the other four "liberal" SCOTUS Justices ("They want to shred the U.S. Constitution!") is making my blood boil.

 

My mute-button is getting such a workout right this minute.

While I'm enjoying what looks like the Trump implosion and the predictions of a Clinton victory, I will not breathe a sigh of relief till the final result is in.

Trump's shadow constituency (dun dun DUN!) is what worries me the most -- people who are (quite rightly) ashamed of how Trump supporters are viewed and will lie about it when asked, even to pollsters. A version of this probably went down during Brexit. I don't care if Hillary is 20 points ahead on election day, I won't rest easy. Plus, the less close the race is perceived to be, the more likely lazy Dems are to stay home... so yeah, we're far from out of the woods yet.

post #10080 of 22490

If Trump continues to be viewed this unfavorably, the chance to vote against him will get people to the polls.

 

Living in CA, I can usually ignore Presidential elections, but I'll be casting a vote this time around. I just wish they'd give me a receipt or a badge or something.

 

Maybe a purple heart?

post #10081 of 22490
Oh yeah, as bad as its been this week for Trump this thing is far from over. If history has taught us anything it's that the American electorate on the whole is incredibly stupid and the Democrats get complacent.

I expect her to win but until she hits 270 on Election Day he could still pull it off. And that thought scares me.

Meanwhile, turns out it's apparently impossible to cancel a recurring donation to the Trump campaign if you've signed up to make one on their website:

The most interesting aspect of the new wave of polls is seeing that 18 to 24 year olds really, really hate Trump.  One poll had that age bracket giving Trump an unfavorable view of 76 percent!

 

Granted, youngsters don't exactly vote in droves and many might not vote for Clinton either, but Trump's numbers with them are astronomically bad.  There have been studies before that showed that the first party you vote for will stick with you for the rest of your life (in many cases), so Trump at the top of the ticket could really be a bad thing for the Republican Party's future.

New Reuters poll has Clinton only up by 3, with a 3pt margin of error, so let's cork the champagne until Nov 9th. I want (and I'd argue as a country we need) complete and total rueage for the loyal opposition in this election. Utah to turn blue. Georgia blue. I want a rout like we haven't seen in our lifetimes. But I'll take whatever we can get to preserve the Union. If Wikileaks releases the wrong piece of info in mid-October and Trump manages not to actually kill someone with his own hands by then, we could still be looking at a squeaker.

Honestly, the Alex Jones in me thinks: the Media says Clinton is so dominating Trump right now. Quick! Release a poll that says its still a horserace so we can justify our incessant coverage and keep our jobs.

Well, national polls are almost meaningless. There are only a handful of toss-up states, and those will determine the election. 538's prediction algorithm only has Clinton up 6.5% nationally (note how close that is to Reuters' margin of error), but the state polls lead to a 81.5% chance of winning, due to the current most likely electoral outcome being 347-191.

 

Which I'm sure would lead to Bill saying, "Congrats, babe... but I won by more. FIRST DUDE! WOO!"

I live in CA and I've registered to vote. My concern that Trump might actually win the presidency, even in a blue state like California, makes me want to make sure to cast a vote for Hillary in November. Democrats cannot be complacent just because Trump is behaving like an idiot and a moron everyday.

I think you're being unfair to your own opinion - the world's full of real conspiracies like that, and the media has a vested financial interest in making this a close race. You're hardly accusing them of arranging 9/11 or Trump of being a lizard person.

One of the ​Big Short​ guys (the narrator who didn't give a shit about the crisis) has joined Trump's economic team, naturally:

 

https://news.vice.com/article/trumps-economic-team-includes-big-short-billionaire-who-bet-against-us-housing-market?utm_source=vicenewstwitter

 

Quote:

Donald Trump unveiled his team of economic policy advisors Friday, which includes five men named Steve, and poker player and hedge fund investor John Paulson, the short-seller best known for making billions from betting against the housing market before the 2007 crash.

 

Paulson became famous for placing big bets that subprime mortgages were about to fail en masse, and at one point was making $10 million a day, or $4 billion total at the peak of the housing collapse, according to the Wall Street Journal. A broker once called Paulson in 2007 to remind him he had an account with $5 million left in it — which Paulson had apparently forgotten about since it was such a small sum. His firm Paulson & Co. has had a pretty uneven record ever since.

 

The other 12 men on Trump's economic council are mostly bankers, hedge fund managers, an oil tycoon and a leading steel manufacturer. "I am going to be the greatest jobs president our country has ever seen," Trump said in a statement on a day the Bureau of Labor Statistics said the U.S. added a robust 255,000 new jobs in the past month.

 

The Trump campaign was quick to cast doubt on good economic news. "The economy the media and the Clinton Machine is describing is an economy that doesn't exist for most Americans," senior policy advisor Stephen Miller said. "It's an economy enjoyed by her donors and special interests, and one suffered through every day by millions of Americans."

 

And just in case anyone needs a reminder of what a Trump economy would actually do:

 

Quote:

Trump's economic plan, like most of his stated policies, is light when it comes to specifics. He wants to impose tariffs on imported goods, cut taxes for corporations and top earners, while also not reducing spending on entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security. Moody's Analytics, a non-partisan economic research firm, examined Trump's economic policies and concluded that they would weaken the economy.

 

"The economy will be significantly weaker if Mr. Trump's economic proposals are adopted," Moody's report found. "It will be a difficult four years for the typical American family."

 

Adding 255,000 jobs in a month would a pipedream in a Trump economy.

post #10099 of 22490

Five Steves? Good for us!

 

Wait...are they 'ph' - THE LORD'S WAY - or 'v', the way of lies and deceit?
