post #10101 of 22490

The chairman of the American Nazi Party is super excited about this Trump guy:

 

https://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/american-nazi-chair-a-trump-win-would-be-a-real-opportunity?utm_term=.rq5L72WOy#.sp62ayAxp

 

Quote:

“Now, if Trump does win, okay, it’s going to be a real opportunity for people like white nationalists, acting intelligently to build upon that, and to go and start – you know how you have the black political caucus and what not in Congress, and, everything, to start building on something like that, okay,” continued the American Nazi. “It doesn’t have to be anti, like the movement’s been for decades, so much as it has to be pro-white. It’s kinda hard to go and call us bigots, if we don’t go around and act like a bigot. That’s what the movement should contemplate. Alright.”

 

Suhayda wrote in past American Nazi Party reports he’d avoid giving statements on Trump, saying it would hurt Trump to be associated with him. In one September report, the all caps-loving Nazi chairman wrote that Trump’s statements showed the Nazi viewpoint wasn’t as unpopular as portrayed by the media.

 

“We have a wonderful OPPORTUNITY here folks, that may never come again, at the RIGHT time,” he stated. “Donald Trump’s campaign statements, if nothing else, have SHOWN that ‘our views’ are NOT so ‘unpopular’ as the Political Correctness crowd have told everyone they are!”

 

In other "the Trump family excites racists" news, Donald, Jr. talked a week ago in Mississippi and he mentioned being cool with the state's flag (which includes a Confederate flag):

Quote:

When asked about taking down the Mississippi flag, Trump Jr. responded:

 

“I believe in traditions. I don’t see a lot of the nonsense that that’s created with these things,” he responded. “So, you know, those are issues and I understand how people feel about some of that, but leaving some of the traditions the way they are in this country, there’s nothing wrong with some tradition.”

post #10102 of 22490

Hey, I believe in some American traditions too, Trump!

 

Mom, apple pie, and so on.

 

Or, say, baseball!

Who said Trump couldn't unite people?

I'm curious about the people who "Approve." Do they know they're sacks of shit?

Even right-wing writers are calling Trump nuts:

 Nor will he start to understand that his blunders are a form of shown disrespect for his own supporters. They put themselves on the line for him, many at some cost. What he’s giving them in return is a strange, bush-league, pull-it-out-of-your-ear, always-indulge-your-emotions campaign. They deserve better.

 

Hah. No, they don't. There's that disconnect. The 78% of the party that still backs him is getting exactly what they deserve.

Oh, and this is too precious to resist:

 “Hillary Clinton is an astoundingly thick concentration of all the evil in this world,” journalist Dmitry Olshansky wrote July 23 on Facebook. “Against that background, the simplicity, rude jokes and fun of (Trump) is like a fresh breeze.”

 “State propaganda tends to give a favorable view of Trump, and this is reflected in public opinion,” said Lev Gudkov, head of the independent Levada Center polling organization. “Partly this is because Trump is in awe of Putin.”

 

The mental gymnastics that Reagan-deifying Republicans must have to do to not flee Trump on this basis alone deserves a gold medal.

post #10109 of 22490

I loved Trump's comments about Somalians.  Very presidential.  Now that's he's pivoted back to the center, I'm sure he'll close the gap on HC's seven point polling lead.

 

BTW, some balls on this dude talking trash about Somalians.  He definitely did not go to the same type of high school I did.

Somebody called Evan MucMullin.

Take a look at @JoeNBC's Tweet: https://twitter.com/JoeNBC/status/762624156211023872?s=09

Former spook. Former investment banker at Goldman Sachs. Sits on the House Committee for Foreign Affairs. Sounds like a Republican wet dream.

 

If he runs and can manage to siphon off even 5% of Trump's vote, that would be fantastic.

post #10117 of 22490
McMullin is way past the ballot deadline for multiple states, so the only thing he could possibly do is to drain votes from Trump.

post #10118 of 22490

I'd love it if Hillary said 'bullshit' to Trump in one of the debates.  'That's bullshit and you know it.'  Good GOD would that be a moment to behold.

post #10119 of 22490

So someone has spent a long, long time over the last few days saying

 

"just read the fucking teleprompter.  Don't get distracted.  Don't retaliate".  He looked like he was about to spout at protester number 6 but just went straight back (presumably because it was a quote praising him).

 

Edit: and Nos 7 AND 8 haven't got him yet.  Surely just a matter of time.  9.

post #10120 of 22490

Donald Trump quotes make a lot more sense when you imagine Zapp Brannigan saying them.....

You guys are so convinced that the debates are going to be two people slinging profanity at each other like it's the AICN message boards.
post #10123 of 22490

Trump's giving his economic stump speech. He just promised to rescind all "unnecessary" regulations that hurt businesses from making money.

 

He didn't bother to define "unnecessary," or tell us how that definition was reached.

 

And more winning, of course.

I don't think it will be or should. But someone ought to just tell Trump to STFU and call his bullshit bullshit.

post #10125 of 22490

He is absolutely the worst, most unsubtle teleprompt reader.  He turns his whole body when he looks at the one on the other side.

I'm literally LOLing at him doing his autoanimatronic movements.

post #10127 of 22490

I'm not even convinced a debate will happen.

 

If he weren't delusional, I'd say they'll never occur. But he buys his own con, so he'll be there. And I'd say it's 75% likely that he says something so awful that his campaign capsizes while running aground and bursting into flames.

"Obama has been a disaster for Detroit."

 

Didn't GM just post record sales?

post #10129 of 22490

Someone Google this economic institute that he keeps quoting. $20 says it's Karl Rove's nephew doing Google searches.

post #10130 of 22490

You can see him absolutely champing at the bit to go off on one, then he takes a breath and starts reading again.

Every once in while he throws in NEVER EVER EVER or DISASTER or repeating a phrase. And you can tell he really wants to just keeping throwing shit.

Irritatingly I do agree with him on the TPP.  I could give a fuck about what it does to the US, but it will be terrible for NZ (plus other shit like it being agreed in secret etc etc)

post #10134 of 22490
Trump probably hates Teleprompters because they force him to actually read.
post #10135 of 22490

Saw a Hillary ad on TV last night that consisted entirely of a Trump appearance on Letterman, and David reading all the different in "Made in [foreign country]" labels on Trump-brand clothing, with Donald just smirking and shrugging and mugging. I almost expected Dave to voice-over the wrap-up, "I'm David Letterman, and I approved this message." Anyway, I laughed.

I don't want that at all, but I'd love it if Hillary turned to Trump when was clearly spouting bullshit and called him on it, literally telling him that he's full of bullshit.  Just once.  His reaction would be hilarious, because there's no way that his ego would let him take that without a nuclear response.  It'd bait him perfectly into shooting himself in the foot.

I've seen that ad a few times now.  It's pretty great, actually.  Why do attack ads when there are plenty of recordings of Trump stepping on his own dick to mine for material.

post #10138 of 22490

After the election, someone should start a fund to continue airing the anit-Trump ads during stuff like Duck Dynasty.

Knew his speech reminded me of something

That's the hell of it - half of the reason he's gotten as far as he has is because the establishment he's playing himself as an "outsider" from is that ridiculously corrupt. It's just the part where he's actually a rabid, screeching, shit-flinging orangutan that couldn't run a lemonade stand without getting caught picking his customers' pockets with one hand and masturbating with the other that people seem to be somehow missing.
post #10142 of 22490

Ya'll know that trade negotiations are kept secret because otherwise you can't negotiate. Right? 

post #10143 of 22490
So this will be the trend. Trump goes rogue for two weeks, staff loses their shit, Trump gets a talking to by advisers, and "reboots" with a stiff teleprompter speech. This has happened like twice so far.

It's been over a week since Trump attacked the Khans and unlike other episodes, this one seems to be sticking to him.

Only two things concern me. One, there's 3 months left on this. Anything can happen. Also, I think there's a statistically significant silent Trump vote out there. It could be as little as 1 percent or as big as 5 percent but it's out there.

​He's a Mormon who went to Brigham Young, so his presence could be enough to swing Utah to Clinton.

All anyone needs to do is whip out a pocket Constitution on camera and you've said everything that you need to say.  You have a powerful idea married to a powerful visual object that hit a chord, and that's going to follow Trump for the rest of his life, not just until November.

post #10146 of 22490

Monmouth has a poll out today that's so strikingly good for Clinton, Georgia was switched to her and even South Carolina is barely blue.

 

EDIT: Those are 538 projections.

The Better for America Party is on the ballot in Arkansas.  It has given it's spot to McMullin, so that's one problem out of the way.

post #10149 of 22490

While...on paper...McMullin is an alternative to either Clinton or Trump, in actuality it appears to be being set up as a deliberate spoiler to Trump. 

post #10150 of 22490
The Never Trump movement has been consistently months behind. It's too late to run McMullen as anything other than a spoiler. Romney would have been the obvious choice and THAT had to happen 3 months ago.
