Probably crunch week for the Trump campaign. If He cant right the ship somewhat this week the GOP will likely abandon him.

Another Monday, another reset.

Trump can usually hold it together for a few days, he usually goes off by Thursday. Will be interesting to see if hes using the nice phone or the naughty one for his tweets. I understand he is now also being babysat by Prebius/Gulliani to keep his busy fingers away from the phone.

So we taking bets on the next breakdown?

The ship is sunk. And Giuliani ain't helping.
Preibus has zero credibility and the speech yesterday will only alienate more people.
Next breakdown? What time is it? Give it a few minutes. grin

I'm afraid you're correct. smile



It should have been the former Tea Party 'Patriots' first clue that Liberals supported their choice of Donald Trump for President. Don't ever trust the oppositions support of YOUR guy! dunce , ROTFMOL

The breakdowns are coming fast and furious. Just yesterday, Trump proposed "Extreme Vetting" and swearing alliance to the Constitution.

Immigrants are already required to do that. So glad that Trump is familiar with U.S. law and policy. rolleyes

Plus, how do you vet a liar who will lie to get into the country to do evil things? Hmm

I hear so many pundits in the media
offering such blindingly obvious good advice
And am always afraid trump will wake up from his oblivious stupor

Anyway, in this election cycle, it seems that most anything can happen
.... Except of course offering me a candidate that i actually want to vote for

I know....

(Heavy sigh...)

We only get to vote for those who are willing to do the work and go through the primary process.

Having said that, if Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's DNC wasn't so heavy into anointing Hillary Clinton and truly supported both candidates, would Bernie have faired better?

He did pretty well, but would he have done better if the DNC wasn't totally in the bag for Hillary.

You'd think the former Tea Party 'Patriots' would know enough about history and not accept the Liberals' Trojan Horse. LOL

Akin to Trump I am not convinced that Bernie really wanted to be president and all that it entails. Rather I feel he was more interested in changing the dialogue and inserting some of his ideas that would then be embraced in the Democratic platform. I have no evidence of this other than a gut feeling.

I also feel Bernie’s motives were more noble than Trumps. Bernie really wants/wanted to see some changes enacted that would benefit downtrodden Americans, whereby what Trump seeks is solely to further enhance his brand. Us vs. me.

If through some miracle Bernie would have been elected and assumed office, he would have immediately rolled up his sleeves and gotten down to the grinding work of enacting policy, while The Donald would have just gazed at himself in the mirror, while telling himself how truly awesome he was. That is the main difference twixt the two.
