Every time I think I cannot be more disgusted with Trump's temerity, he does something else that disgusts me more. Not only does he have no business running for office, he needs to be relegated to the gutter where he prefers to dwell. He'll have lots of company, there.

For some reason there is an uninterrupted Trump screed speech being broadcast on MSNBC and CNN right now... I have never heard such an incessant, incoherent series of baldfaced lies uttered in one setting. It's amazing (and depressing) to see. I thought the debates were terrible, but this is so much worse.

this is routine for surrogates ... it is punctuated with lies (listen to Mayor Guiliani, Boris Epshteyn, etc) and weak appeals to policy without supporting commentary

secret plan to defeat ISIS - harsh language or he will grope them
economic growth - trickle down ... when has that worked for anyone but the wealthy
healthcare - how will he stop rising costs? his replacement reduces the number covered
etc

i want to hear the detailed plans not the lies

I guess it really means "Make America White Again". These morans don't know what entropy is, I suppose.

Is Trump "The Manchurian Candidate"?
Quote:
Trump’s foreign policy agenda is a near mirror-image of Russia’s, right down to the rhetoric he has used about Ukraine and Syria.

Following the election, there will be a cascade of Trump losses in court cases.

I've been pondering this thought: is Donald Trump more symptom or disease? Is he just taking advantage of existing circumstances like a parasite, or causing sickness like a virus?
