Trump Probably Won’t Win, But You Never Know

Written by John Feehery

 

It is impossible for Donald Trump in November.  And if he does win, it will be a complete and total disaster.

 

That’s the firm opinion of most of my friends who live inside Washington’s notorious beltway.

 

For my friends who aren’t so close to the nation’s Capitol, those conclusions are not so clear.

 

Many believe that Trump will win in a landslide.  Others look forward to the billionaire shaking things up and bringing needed change to our political system.

 

I am caught somewhere in the middle.

 

I believe it is very difficult for Trump to win in November for two reasons.

 

First, there is the candidate himself.  He is a political rookie playing in the Big Leagues without ever setting foot in the minor leagues.  He has a history of saying things that are offensive to women, Muslims, Hispanics, African-Americans.  He doesn’t have a campaign structure in place yet and hasn’t raised much money.  He is seen as a narcissist who doesn’t have the right temperament to lead the country.

 

Second, there is the demographic map.  Republicans have won the general election popular vote only once in the last seven elections.   The Democratic coalition is growing while the GOP base is just growing older and whiter.   The Democrats have a stranglehold on big states with a lot of electoral votes, like California, New York and Illinois.  Because of changing demographics, Florida, Virginia and North Carolina, usually reliably Republican, are looking more challenging for the GOP.  Even Texas might be in play this time around.

 

And yet, one big truth gives me some pause.

 

This is a change election.  Which candidate best represents change and which candidate embodies the status quo?

 

Donald Trump, despite all of his flaws, is an agent of change.  Hillary Clinton is a Washington fixture, a former First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State who has made her career and millions of dollars by living and working in this city.

 

Her career is what the forces of change most want changed.  The American people are sick and tired of the political class self-dealing itself all the best cards while leaving them out in the cold.

 

From a demographic perspective, Trump has to win record numbers among white voters, he has to do better than Romney among black and Hispanic voters and he has to improve his standing among women voters, which is now at toxic levels.

 

Is it possible?  Well, anything is possible but at this juncture it seems improbable

 

Would Donald Trump be a disaster as President?

 

It’s hard to know.  It’s highly unlikely that the Washington bureaucracy will bend to his will immediately upon his arrival in the White House.

 

He won’t be able to implement his Muslim ban because it is unconstitutional on its face.  He won’t succeed in deporting millions of illegal immigrants because the economy would collapse as a result.  The wall that he talks about incessantly is already being built in the places where it needs to be built and not being built in places where it is not necessary.

 

The Congress would likely unite with the Judicial branch to limit him when he overreaches.

 

Will he get us involved in a nuclear war?  With who?  He and Vladimir Putin are personally close, so it is highly unlikely that we would get into a shooting war with the Russians.  The Chinese don’t have the capacity to compete with us in a nuclear showdown, so that too seems extremely unlikely.  And Trump rejects the notion of America as a global policeman, which means it is far less likely that we would get involved in any others wars on purpose.

 

Trump would most likely spend the bulk of his time on the economy and on freeing the business sector from the maze of regulations that inhibits economic growth.  That’s what he knows, from his years of experience in the private sector.  On those economic issues, he will find willing partners with the Congressional Republican leadership.

 

There is little evidence in his private life  that Trump is the racist or fascist that the intelligentsia have accused him of being.  But if he doesn’t respond more effectively to those charges, he will be in big trouble in the general election.

 

There is still a chance that Donald Trump could win this November but it is look less and less likely the more the campaign stretches on.  And the world won’t end if by some miracle he pulls it off.

  • Remember America where you could teach your children. Right from wrong! We could correct our kids and sometimes the kid down the block if caught. Respect, and goodness.were the norm. THE fact is we have had good people run and well qualifided but no one would vote for them… THEY gave up and so did we!!!!!!! Those of us who believe all lives matter. Who will love you no matter what your race or religion might be as long as you were not hurting others. We minded our own business, helped people because it is the correct and right thing to do, and it did not mean enabling someone to do wrong. WE have to stick together……but we have lost America and need to protect ourselves so we can help protect others. I am. Terrified because we have a 2 party system that is failing us. we had better look beyond sensationalism. And drama or we better figure this is the end of life as we know it!!!! It does not including foreign relations…… If we could stop this election. Then start over with new people that right now would save us. We should never allow cyber security to fail us nor should we ever elect someone who has so little experience as who we have. or have someone that would bring Shame and fear to our great country…………..We have home prices that people can never hope to be in any home. Or oat act. These are hard working people like me. Worked 14 hours a day and weekends to take care of myself. Now the IDEAwants to tell us my hip pain does not matter because I could end up a drug addict, well really never have and will not!!!!! Why the do not take the drugs out of our country is $$$$$$. I do not need them being my doctor!!!!! COMMON SENSE IS GONE FOLKS. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS IN INSTEAD. THANK YOU IF YOU READ BY RANT…..I can get emails sometimes but rarely as my computer is old as I am to poor to invest in a new one so if you comment here I can get it. NO 1 for me is security.. please People let me know as I am so scared as to who to vote for…..Hugs to all people. This old lady loves you……..

  • Does nobody remember what our county did to the Japanese living in this country during WW2? Trump wants to stop Muslims from entering the country for while because… who is doing all the bombing and killing countless innocent people… Muslims? It’s not the Catholics, not since the crusades.
    Ok, time’s up. We rounded up all the Japanese people, all their families, and we put them in camps till the war was over. They posed a homeland threat.
    Well, firstly that was very unkind and secondly, there are way too many Muslims living in the US to do that. Now, in comparison, shutting the borders to those who may or may not want to kill all who do not embrace Islam, I think the latter is not as discriminatory as what this country has done in the past.
    I know as well as you that not all Muslims are in a hurry to strap on a bomb and they hate what others are doing. So really, who is making the biggest noise about not allowing Muslims? The Muslim community or the liberals that just want to make noise just so hey can hear their own heads rattle?

  • I didn’t say Trump was better, I’m not voting for him. I’m trying to convince you that Hillary Clinton is the worst choice there are other candidates find out about them before you decide…..

    • u just dont seem to get it, the other choices dont have a chance to win, its a joke to even mention them, the reality is this, its gonna be hillary or trump, like it or not, that is the reality we face, and im voteing for hillary, cause to me she is the lesser of the 2 evil, if u want to vote for a third party person go ahead.

  • If you don’t know if it’s true find out and I’m not voting for Trump ( no not all white redneck truckers are racist MOrons) But Bashar Assad, Vladimir Putin, or Mickey Mouse ( he’s s registered Dem in Ohio remember?) Would be a better pick than The Evil Queen Hillary…

    • well we can agree to disagree, i dont share your view of hillary and the democrats, i just disagree with dems on how to run the country, as for who show hate the most, its my party, and to me hillary is the lesser of the 2 evil, trump is a race baiter, and would divide this country, and he say the most insane stuff, im shock that he has gotten this far, but it is true, racist people like the kkk loves trump, and u no why, its because of how he talks, he talks like a racist, so i completely disagree with u that trump is better, but i respect your opinion, but like i keep saying, minorities dont hear trump speech of make america great again, to them it means, take the country back to a time when minorities was not treated equal as whites.

  • to even think about all that pair of nuts is a wast of your time do you realy think thay wil think of you when thay are filling there own pockets dont wast your time

  • And if all that doesn’t convince you.. Because they are convinced that all the other candidates who ran wouldn’t care about the status quo or their precious opinions George and Jen Bush-sh*t are supporting her.. They ain’t givin up a dime to any one who won’t support their plan for One World/Globalist Government. Hi

  • There are good decent people everywhere and all races are entitled the same respect as any other. I get called a stupid redneck trucker and other things beside,,, but it’s always by people who don’t take the time to talk or even listen. If you don’t know someone how can you judge????? I start by not judging and listening and watching,,,,, their words not someone elses opinion of their words and deeds but actual transcripts or video. The worst thing that can happen right now is to let Hillary put judges as radical and crooked as she is on the Supreme Court.
    The National Socialist Democratic Party will strip the Constitution of the amendments which guarantee our rights.. And without those rights we will all be slaves,, just as there are countries still in existence today where slavery, economic or otherwise still exists because they have no rights. Shari’a law says any non Muslim can be used as a slave..
    Economic slavery exists through both poverty and the caste system in Indian and Asian countries. Genocide is happening as we breathe our very breath. Against Muslim, Christian, Women can be bought and sold as property. Children are murdered,,,,
    These people gave Hillary money for the influence she could give them. No Her Evilness is in a class all by itself. No conscience what so ever..
    Donald is a typical loudmouth Crooked Capitalist, and possibly a maniac, But he don’t hold a candle to Hillary.

    • u feel that way because its not u he insulting, its minorities, and if u want to act like he has not insulted them, well having a inteligent conversation with u is pointless, the country has change its very very hard to win with just white votes, u need minority votes also, its why obama beat romney, and why hillary gonna beat trump, minorities gonna come out in record numbers to give hillary the win in november, and 4 years later, my party gonna bash minorities again and hillary gonna win again, dont kid yourself or be fooled by fox news, trump gonna loose, we will never see another republican president, until we treat minorities with respect, so we can be able to express our view to them,of a better america

    • and i dont know if all that stuff about hillary is true, what i do know is minorities dont hear trump idea of a better america, its drowned out by all the insults that come out of his quick tempered mouth

      • It’s because of Dems pandering to the minorities for their votes that this country is wallowing in racism. Everybody screams “equality”. I’m a 60 year old white American born male and I’ve seen what has happened to equality. Sure some good things have come about but equality is tipping more and more to the side of the minorities while the descendants of those who made this country great in the beginning are questioning the meaning of the word. I’m for equality, absolutely, but in equal measure. I personally hate politics. Politics = Lies. Unfortunately thats what we’ve got to work with and it’s gotten us this far over the past 200+ years. God Bless America and God help us all.

  • Sorry the only way you can waste a vote is to not use it at all. If you don’t know who Barney Fife is,,, I am obviously alot older than you… Watch an episode of Andy Griffith show and you’ll see the humor in what i said. Hillary Clinton Has done nothing hood im her life if it wasn’t going to gain her power and or money.. Her first major court case she got a paedophile, rapist, and his buddy out of most of the rap for raping and abducting a 12 year old,,, and laughed about the verdict. Bill Clinton was a decent president,, she is way more evil than the truth can show. Richard Nixon was a consummate B*st*rd, and she makes him look like Jimmy Carter.
    Stop believing what the Left and Right wing media/mafia games on TV (idiot box). Donald Trump might be a complete F**lip, and he definitely has a big mouth, but believe what I say, Please, there is no one in politics today remotely close to the evil scheming lieing thing that Hillary has become in the last 40 years.

    • oh that barney, yes i use to watch that show, and u sound like a republican like me, the big difference is i think if u had to choose trump over hillary u would choose trump, for the first time in my life im voteing for a democrat, i agree hillary is bad, but trump would divide this country, and turn us on each other, unlike alot of people in my party, im not gonna act like he not insulting people, and stirring racial hate, and i believe crooked hillary speech of love trumps hate is gonna carry her to victory, cause trump has scared minorities big time, they think his make america great again speech, means take america back to a time when minorities was not treated equal to whites, so rather u accept he insulting minorities or not, they see the insults, and so do i

  • You People got to lighten up. I’m the most sarcastic SOB I know. And all I see is anger and racism from both sides…
    Voted Republican all my life.. I’M now an independent. Hillary And Donald are wrong for this country,. You want a women pres Jill Stein,,,, You want less gov Johnson.. The current crop of left and right wing media are all hacks. I’m 60 years old and smart enough to look up platforms presented by candidates on the web. Quit believing all the hype and bullsh** on the idiot box. Talk to your neighbors with the same respect you want. Americans All for one one for all!!!! Or maybe that was the three pigz. Anyway E Pluribus Unum, Semper Fi, Scouts Honor, Get Your F-in Sh*t together. For we shall hang together or surely we shall hang separately!!!!!!

    • jill stein dont have a chance of winning, u waisting your vote, u should make your vote count, and choose between the lesser of the 2 evils, hillary is a lieing poor excuse of a lady, and trump is a mean tempered, race baiting maniac, its clear who is the lesser evil

  • Mayberry USA,,,, LOL…. We can change the name of the No Justice Department to the Barney Fife Security Agency,, Toss in the NSA And Homeland to save Money… It would be the most effective agency in Amerika Today….yep nothing gets past Barney….. OOPS Diesel fumes caused CRS,, I was Just corrected, My friend Days Barney is already in charge. Bein so famous an all he change his name Cumer, Camer, somethin like that!!!?;-)

    • i have no clue who barney is, i can only assume he somebody u disagree on, nor can i tell rather u a republican or democrat, either way, i stand by my comment, minorities aint going away, and its very hard to win with just white votes, unless my party learn to speak to minorities, with respect, instead of insults, there will never be another republican president

  • just a couple of days ago trump said even legal immigrants might be a danger to this country, i understand what he trying to say, but i know immigrants want, because all he does is insult minorities, and people in my party act like they dont even see or worse defend him, as i said before, minorities dont hear trumps speech on make america great again, to them it means, take america back to a time when they were not treated equal to whites, hillary will win, because minorities gonna come out in record numbers to vote for her, to many people in my party dream of a mayberry country that will never be.

  • Sure is a lot of racist commentary. About who is racist. Proud African American, Larry ,,, hang in there Hillary will continue to do nothing but lie and be selfish, Even with the fix fromThe DNC ( throwing gasoline on Bernie) and Obama’s No justice Department and the Federal Bureau Of Intent giving passes to hypocrisy and lies, Sooner or later the Clinton money machine will break down. The National Socialist Democratic Party Will fail in the end. Dems want to Divide and Conquer… and to get rich, Black White Asian Indian Muslim even the Irish will finally figure their game out.

  • my pary makes me sick, they act like they dont even recognize the insults, trump say on a daily basis to minorities, the country has change, u cant win with just whites votes, u need minority votes also, we can hate crooked hillary and the dems all we want, but they understand , u dont insult minorities if u want there vote, dont listen to fox news and let them fool us again like when they said romney was gonna win, minorities are gonna come out in record numbers for hillary in november, and 4 years later my party gonna bash minorities again, and hillary gonna win again, and its because my republican base dream of a mayberry country, they feel like minorities has taken there country away from them, we have become the party of stupid and hate

  • One positive outcome of this election. After Hillary Clinton is elected President of the United States by a landslide, the Republican party as it has been since it’s inception will no longer exist. The ‘Grand Old Party’ will go to the boneyard of political parties. The old guard will die, the new generation will be focused on progress and eliminated the old political regime. So, it’s not all bad news after-all.

  • my party is stupid, it has been taken over by racist idiots, hillary will win, because the dems understand, the country has changed, and that u cant win with just white votes, u cant insult minorities and expect there vote, trump message is drowned out to them, by his insults, we overlook trump insults, because its not at us, just minorities, we even at like we dont see him insulting people

  • im a republican and i know trump wont win, country has changed, u cant win with just white votes, u need minority votes also, u cant insult minorities and expect them to vote for u, they cant hear trump message cause its drowned out by the insulting things he keep saying, we republicans brush it off, because its not us he keep insulting

  • i admit i dont care for hillary to much, but donald trump says racist stuff, he once said that blacks are lazy, im not lazy, i work very hard, u cant insult people, and expect to get there vote, u keep racist feelings to yourself, thats the one thing i really like about obama being president, people u did not even no was racist has come out, for the world to see, i rather no who hate me cause im black, instead of smiling in my face, but hateing me behind my back, wishing the worst for me

    • I hear you and I’m not black. But a person doesn’t have to be black, Asian, Hispanic, Muslim or whatever to be able to empathize with them, see them as just other Americans and not something different or unique. We’re all the same race, we’re all human beings. Republicans only recognize rich, white, old men as superior beings. It’s about time that ends.

  • this country has change alot, u cant win with just white votes, u need some minority to win, u cant bash minorities and expect them to vote for u, the problem is, a bunch of the repblican base all racist, so people like trump has to say stupid racist thing to his racist base, but that not enough anymore to get u elected president

  • Donald Trump will win this election. He does care about this country. The establishment in both party’s are afraid of him because they know he will tear down the status quo that has stopped progress in making the change this country needs. Our minority communities have been lied to for too long. They have institutalized welfare in these communities and taken away hope of ever changing the conditions and giving the poor the chance to change and take back control of their lives so they can rise above the disparity that keeps them down and a hopeless feeling. More of this money would be better spent by improving the educational system and infrastructure and rebuild these areares . Give tax incentives to attract new business and bring back good jobs and give them the ability to take back control of their lives and end dependency on government programs. The silent majority will rise up this election and put Trump in the White House

    • No matter what the outcome is, it will be our outcome. Our votes will decide. I just have a feeling that if Donald Trump wins that Canada is going to be getting a whole lot of expatriates from the US

  • Sometimes I really don’t understand the inability of many people to remember the past, the Clinton scandals, the many elected officials who have sold the American people to the lobbyist AND yet continue to not want to look at the big picture…what can Hilliary do that she hasn’t already had the opportunity to change…at least Mr Trump does not need to steal from the American people and maybe just maybe that alone will return prosperity to the American people…before you cast a vote…read as much as you can about the presidential candidates and vote for our America

    • Donald Dumb is the most racist person to ever run for the highest office of the free world. He supporters support him mostly because of his racist comments towards Hispanics, African Americans, Muslims, Women, disabled people etc… if can’t denounce the support of the KKK and Devid Duke, his position is clear to the American people.

      • If you would listen to what the man says and not what the commentator says about the man you’ll find the truth. This man wants to help this country. The establishment wants him stopped so they can keep getting rich off of us.

    • Trump will create nothing but more scandals. And have his adult children running around the White House. What a site that would be. Here to help daddy Donald. At their ages, shouldn’t they have lives of their own? Can’t grow up, just like Donnie

      • Hey, Anonymous – so the serial rapist and NAFTA creator, which created the 2008 recession, hanging around the White House for ANOTHER 8 years, Bill Clinton, that is, doesn’t scare you? The Clintons have no REMOVED integrity whatsoever. She lies perpetually, and laughs at hoodwinking the American people. She created ISIS with her b******t excuse for judgement. She has no judgement worth mentioning. If the American people cave, and pull her in to lie and cheat and steal as much as she can for the next 8 years – there is something seriously wrong with the judgement of the American people. Right up till the last day, the “remain” appeared to be winning. However, Brexit won against all odds. As will Donald Trump.

  • His hair. With all his money, is that the best he can do? Only Rene Levec, the former Canadian Prime Minister had hair as idiotic and to quote Trump, he was a disaster. Still though, super hot wife, at least until she ages a bit and gets replaced with a newer model. Maybe he should run for dictator of Slovenia.

  • I believe before this election is over We the REAL People of this country will know just what kind of people the Clintons really are. Trump will expose a lot of “Dirt” on the Clintons and Obama.

    • We all believe in something. Too bad Trump can’t make sense of his claims to make AGA – but no, he’s all about “the dirt”. Smart man. Get you to think he is looking out for YOUR (or my) interest. I think not. He has scammed millions from folks just like you and me. And those are facts. He is being sued, remember.

  • Who is going to be a “good President” is very questionable that we get the
    “best of the best” – absolutely. I have been taught since I was a Catholic School Student a “million” absolutely fabulous experience. I was completely taught that we should “never judge a book by its cover”. It is wonderful learning facts like that and applying it to every single situation where this is in a negative circumstance. Disturbance infuriates the heart and mind which is horrendously erroneously. Our next President should only discuss that which would make everyone happy, with his love and respect for everyone – hopefully this is what will happen with Donald Trump. Every heart and mind must be checked before voters learn everything. Tremendously important. GOD BLESS EVERYONE FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE AND PEACE BE WITH EVERYONE FOREVER, ALSO. XOXXXOXOOXXOXXOXOXOXOXO

  • Wonderful comments back to all the Lying Donald fans – I have been laughing- hilariously so my thanks! Donald will not win the November election as the American public is to discerning (big word for Trump fans)! This election should be a discussion on policies mainly but other than Hillary, who is in a policy discussion with herself and hopefully the public, this may be one of the most foul, disrespectful elections I have ever witnessed. It makes me sick to see facts hit myths and roll off the back of a GM truck faster than ‘the road runner’! It demeans the whole office of President, politics, politicians, American citizens and The country as a whole. Everyone knows that the politics of this country have to change but a guy like this, is only ‘shock and awe’ and (we know what trouble that has caused), is not the guy to implement the changes needed. Believe it or not Hillary is the one but she will do it in a organized manner not by changing the orbit of the earth as Trump would do! See you in November when the common sense citizens of the US will vote Hillary as the 1st women President of the USA!

  • Good afternoon Mr. Trump,
    Sir, courteously and most respectfully, I kindly ask you to permit me to express my personal opinion regarding your approach (your appearence). Hopingly, my singular observation may positively contribute to your success. Sir, wealthy as ou may be, certainly you can afford to hire a professional expressionist, your apparently most aggressive penetrating squinty eyed approach appears quite hostel, es. as if history was repeating if self, like you are going to drag America into war with the whole planet. Fortunately, years ago that aggressive evil war monger Adolf Hitler was eliminated, lets not try to introduce another one. Hire a barber, a good down to earth one, someone that may give you a more soft type of cut. Yes, while on the subject, before I forget, do as Hillary, dress business like and fashionable, certainly you can afford it, no one is going to criticize you for spending your own hard earned money.
    Probably I’ve said too much, more then what I should have, being “AMERICA” a symbol of democracy I hope that you will permit me and I ask you kindly not to consider me as being offensive.
    With respect

    Joseph “JOE” Alfano

  • I can see what Trump is doing, he’s using fear,haterd,and folse patritisim to gain the vote of extreme white ‘christian’ racesist sheep who wolud rather ‘burn a n****r’ than save the country from the real threat of terrorism he has no intention in making America great, he just wants to be in the White house.

  • IF HILLARY OR BERNIE WINS WE ARE F****D. I THINK THAT TRUMP WOULD BE A GREAT CHANGE AND WOULD MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. HES OUR BEST BET TBH EVEN IF HES NOT THE GREATEST, HES WAY BETTER THAN BERNIE OR HILLARY

    • Wow, what a strong argument. Because reality is all based upon what you “think” Trump would be. Yet facts and logic don’t support that idea at all, Trump is nothing more than a thin-skinned narcissist who is appealing to the lowest common denominator (AKA you), and further, he’s not going to win the election, because idiots like you no longer make up the majority. Check into the last time a conservative won the popular vote, excluding W’s second term election, because of fears following 9/11 and elections favoring incumbents. And those conservatives weren’t viewed NEARLY as unfavorably as Trump.

      • The U.S. Certainly WILL be the laughing stock of the world if Trump mp ever became President ! I believe that many significant world leaders will not want to associate with Trump, or co- operate with his lunatic plans , or welcome him into their country !

  • I have had enough of Obama and his Socialistic administration, Hillary will bring the same, only life will get worse due to our living “on the skids” now. That will continue. However I believe Trump will make us better, if only getting us out of this Socialist administration. Putin has said he will work with Trump. Hillary gave the Russians a Re-Set button that no one seems to talk about. That was ALL her fault and the Russians won’t forget it. They know exactly WHAT Hillary is.

    • Explains what so well, how to destroy a business and now he is shooting for a nation? EVERYTHING Trump has touched has done nothing for anyone else but Trump and every one is paying dearly. What’s next? Let’s see if he can bring out the racist pigs and oink our way to destruction. The Muslims, the Mexicans, the Blacks, the Japanese, the Chinese, and all “illegal immigrants”. not allowed in and must get out of the country. If you are legal, as in citizen, we will have to look at it. Facts: KKK has killed more Americans then ISIS; Police in America have killed more Americans then ISIS; Trump has had more lawsuits filed against him (3000+ in last 10 years) for being a cheat, a racketeer then any business in America. You are living on the skids, white man, because you choose to do so and maintain you “superiority” with your mouth. YOU have been running the country since inception and have screwed it up royally. Now you want to blame, shout, kill to cover your screw ups, and have the audacity to mention the word “Christian”. Looks like it won’t be long now and God will issue you a reply. As a matter of fact, He already did. You know, in your book, that you have sooooooooooooo many versions of but say the same thing?

    • More typical vaguery from your ilk. What exactly makes the Obama administration a “socialist administration”? I’m willing to bet you can’t cite one single policy that he implemented while in office to support your claim, you just like to throw around the word socialist because you hear your idiotic heroes on talk radio and fox news use it all the time.

    • Obama is NOT socialist. He took money from super PACS from Wall Street. He’s basically Wall Street and GOP’S puppet, but a socialist he is not even close.

  • We certainly need Mr. Trump to be elected to the Presidency. He , in my opinion, is way ahead of Hilary Clinton. Hilary is a crook as Mr. Trump explains so well. Bill Clinton still embarasses me so much because of what he did as President. Hilary would make things much worse than Mr. Trump.

    • Oh please, you don’t care about what Bill Clinton did one bit and you know it. You, like Trump, are just trying to associate Hillary with something negative because you don’t support her. It’s laughable to believe you’re “embarassed” about Bill Clinton, and even more laughable that you think you can shift that blame onto his wife. This is why women hate Trump.

  • A vote for trump is a finger up at the perception of a corrupt and self serving political establishment. People want to change that and if enough do – change they will get. On the positive side, how much power does the president really have to make the kind of mistakes that some people fear. I suspect – not that much. There will be checks and balances.

    For example, let’s say he has a few too shots of Tennessee’s finest one night with Putin at camp; they end up wrestling, it gets a bit out of hand and Putin takes Trump down and follows up with a savage choke hold (the man is clearly a bear). Embarrassing! Anyway. Trump dusts himself off and gets out of there and, with a red face, finds a quiet room and summons the launch codes.

    What happens next?

    • I definitely agree that ONLY Donald Trump will make any kind of change – Hillary’s been in with “the political group” for many, many years and has been brain-fed everything that’s been going on and has no intention of changing anything. Nothing will change if she’s voted in – our country will continue to go downhill until it reaches the bottom!

      • Hilarious that you really believe Trump is going to win. Look into the last time a conservative won the popular vote in this country, then look into Trumps unfavorable ratings vs. Clintons, then look into how the voting demographics have changed, then look into how Trump has offended women, hispanics, muslims, disabled persons, etc.

        But oh yeah, he’s going to win. LOL. It’s going to be a tough November for all you idiots.

    • LOL. Yeah, because a war against a group of religious extremists is certainly worthy of that title. Definitely on the same scale as WW1 and WW2…lmao. And for the record, which president resided over the most civilian deaths at the hands of terrorists in U.S. history? Ding Ding, a conservative by the name of Bush. And when did that happen? In 2001? Oh, but wait, “WW3” has only been going on 7 years, conveniently it started when Obama took office, 9/11 wasn’t part of it. Hahahaha. But hey, when facts don’t work, just make random statements and hope no one realizes what a delusional idiot you are, right?

      • Ding ding ding because of the policies made by Bill Clinton that prohibited intelligence agencies and the fbi from properly communicating. Who’s foreign policies created ISIS and then armed them. Who’s policy of apologizing to every country and organization so weakened America that Putin and others feel they can invade and take what they want? Which president has done more to divide the citizens will racial tension? Which candidate has never created a job or even tried? Which candidate has lied to the Americans about everything under the sun repeated, and enjoyed an above the law “white privilege” political elite status for far too long? Who’s political party thinks that we are not already at war with ISIS? Who’s in denial about Muslim extremists being terrorist, and that one of the group’s behind the violence against law enforcement and calls for more violence and for attacks on white citizens is called the nation of Islam? Which candidate and party acknowledges that they are progressive liberal socialist? Ding ding ding it would be Obama, Hillary, and Democrat party. Which party claims that it is racist to want to round up people trespassing in America, but would have a homeless person trespassing on their personal property, after all the homeless person was just looking for a roof over their heads and chance at a better way of life? Personally I know from my own experience that their are some police officers that go beyond what is necessary, and do they really need to shot a kid in the back and kill them because they were scared and ran away, or charge someone with attempted murder of a police officer if you bump into their car, that is if they don’t just shoot you. Why is it now okay for a officer to be judged, jury, and executioner. But to be clear it is not okay to kill law enforcement officers either. Which party has used gun control as a means to suppress and control the African American population and wants to use it to do the same with the entire(except themselves of course can leave oneself defenceless against the citizens) population. Yes we all have a couple of great choices to make in November. Do we choose the one who can most likely save and improve the economy and strong on defense or the one that is extremely careless with the security of the nation and is weak on defense?

        • Mr. proud veteran. Did you get shot in the head and loose part of your brain? You rambled on with a lot of ignorant nonsense. Bill Clinton was not responsible for the law agencies not co-operating. That has been going on for decades, because of ego in the ranks. They all want credit for themselves instead of co-operating. Putin invades and takes what he wants not because Obama apologized, but because he knows he can, no matter who is president. He knows we will not risk nuclear war over a skirmish of invasion of a small neighboring country, so he does it and gets praise as a great leader by Trump, instead of the harsh condemnation he deserves. Didn’t care much about Romney but at least he knew who our adversaries are. Obama has never made a speech to divide us racially. He has always condemned the violence by police and did as you did and acknowledge that there is a problem with aggressive police tactics. As far as lying about everything under the sun, Mr. Trump can not be beat. That is how he got a lot of what he has even though the greedy pig needed not to do so. I haven’t seen a single case where Hillary is accused of running scams on common citizens or cheating contractors and even dishwashers out of pay and also overtime pay that is required by law. But I believe Trump is tied up in over a hundred lawsuits over such issues. The common folks that went to the bogus Trump University seminars that lost $3500 to this con man (last I saw 500 litigates) have to sue because this stingy fraud won’t just refund their money. It wouldn’t hurt him at all. If I sold a refrigerator to a man and he said it didn’t work, I would immediately refund his money. But this guy scammed. Many of these people were poor that were looking for a way to get ahead and make their lives great. But their is no greatness to be found in a con man. The love of money (greed) is the root of all evil. Evil is presented as good under the pretense that this will make us all great again. Now only a fool would buy into the notion that all people that follow the Muslim faith should be lumped together and considered enemies. I personally believe it is a false religion, but as an American I recognize EVERYONE’S freedom to practice whatever religion they prefer, lest it be America no more, we need to respect that. Now you claim Trump will improve the economy. His solution is to go even further in the direction that GW Bush went in reducing taxes for the wealthy. That only brought tremendous debt. When a few control most all the wealth and you give them more they will not produce more and hire more. The demand for product is the single most factor in improving the economy. If your money is devaluated with more debt then it will be worth less and you will have to pay more for product (Example the high Bush inflation-lost jobs not produced). Producing gross inequality, as this rich man don’t pay his taxes scheme does, creates a great imbalance, wherein some have most all resources and others have way too little. Those having too little will not spend money, and therefore the economy will suffer. Plenty of supply from the supply siders but too little demand from those wanting or needing to purchase product. So instead of creating jobs, jobs are lost. Don’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. I bet there could have been lots of jobs created by the state, for the benefit of the citizens, if Trump was not allowed to weasel out of paying the $50 million he owed in New Jersey casino profit taxes. Since that time you see NJ governor Chris Christie up his rear, and brushing off his feet, even though Christie claimed he had no knowledge that Trump was exempted from paying his obligation, as all other tax payers did to the state. Go figure. Now you say that Trump has supported this nation more than anyone else. Where is proof of that. Hillary released her tax returns and paid about 35% in taxes. What has Trump to hide. Has he paid any federal tax at all? We don’t know. Now this crooked man has admitted that he has contributed to politicians for years in order to get what he wants (bribery). So make America great or run it like a mobster?

      • Really. I was watching the movie Dune again the other night, and while not completely loyal to Frank Herbert’s book, I couldn’t notice how much Trump looks and acts like Baron Harkonnen.

    • I know too Trump has made a lot of offensive comments; but there were 4 Presidents in the past that were not “People in those kind of places” so-to-speak; and while in office, they became 4 of the greatest, most historic Presidents we ever had. Remember no one’s all bad – he’s just fed up (like the majority of people – and speaks his mind). People can easily get ugly and make offensive comments when things haven’t been going well. I would love to see us have a WOMAN as our President; but not Hillary. I believe if Hillary gets in, our country is done and over with! I don’t feel that financially we’ll ever be whole again. Here are some facts about Trump you may not know:

      The Trump family story is a very American story.
      Trump family history – concise version.
      •Donald Trump’s grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Alsace (Kallstadt, Germany) which throughout history has been alternately French and German. The Trumps are German, originally speaking the same German dialect as the Amish of Lancaster County, PA.

      Donald Trump has enjoyed success in at least 11 very different enterprises: Professional football, Ice Skating rinks, Fragrance, Ice, Steaks, Wines, Model management, Airline, blenders, Men’s wear, Bicycle races, world class beauty contests, and many others. In some of these, such as model management, his firm has risen to the top of that particular industry.

      •The largest private real estate development in New York is Trump Riverside. Drive down the Henry Hudson Blvd. – you can’t miss them.

      The Political Trump:
      about 1967 – 1987 – Democrat (he was a supporter of Ronald Reagan)
      1987 – 1999 – Republican
      1999 – 2001 – Reform Party (he supported Ross Perot)
      2001 – 2009 – Democrat
      2009 – 2011 – Republican
      2011 – 2012 – Independent
      2012 – Present – Republican
      Donald Trump was openly supportive of Mitt Romney’s candidacy.
      Donald Trump does not seem to hold political party organizations in high regard.
      For the most part, his political involvement has been for practical reasons.
      Donald Trump does not appear to be held to political ideology.
      Some of my take aways:
      •Trump has an extraordinarily energetic central nervous system much like Teddy Roosevelt but more targeted to industry and enterprise.
      •Trump’s presidency will be very energetic, transparent, and communicative.
      •Trump will be a very hard working President.
      •His interaction with his older brother (who everybody loved) tells me that he thinks that everybody is like him – or wants to be – or should be.
      •His relationship with his older brother was a hard lesson in tolerance for him.
      •Trump is the Babe Ruth of career achievements.
      •He is dumb like a fox. When you think he just said something stupid – he didn’t. It’s just that you were not his target audience.
      •Trump knows the people – the folk.
      •His son, Donald Jr. is right. Trump is a “Blue Collar Billionaire”.
      •More than anything, his TV show, The Apprentice, was his passion. He wants all Americans to have confidence (like he does) to venture.
      •Donald Trump is attracted to and marries smart, high achieving women.
      •The highest levels of a Trump Administration is certain to have many women – and they will be bright and assertive.
      •Donald Trump’s children are very important to him. And it shows.

      We all know nothing of our current president with 2 terms in office. He was a community organizer/agitator. Knowledge gives one the ability to make good voting decisions. Not having that knowledge and proper vetting of Presidential candidates leads us to poor decisions, such as what’s happened the last 8 years…..I pray that God helps us to not ever make those stupid lack of American principals judgments ever again!

      • Thank you for the information about Donald Trump. It doesn’t surprise me, and confirms many perceptions I have of him. I have worked as a professional psychotherapist (MSW) licensed in my state of residence for over 30 years. Mr. Trump’s communication style may be different than many of today’s politicians, but that doesn’t make it bad. Many prefer his straight forward common sense approach to communication and find it refreshing, as I do.

        • Thanks for the comment Maureen. It is a good warning for folks not to go to you for treatment, as you sound more like a psycho than a therapist. You say Trump’s communication style may be different than many of today’s politicians but that does not make it bad. If giving people nick names like Lying Ted, Crooked Hillary, while he himself lies and is crooked sounds mature to you, then God help your patients. This man said that a picture from a tabloid magazine, that resembled Ted Cruz’s father behind the image of Oswald, suggested that Cruz’s father was involved in a conspiracy to assassinate JFK. You call that straight forward communication. Most call it unsubstantiated and pathetic. We have a man that loves to accuse others for the very thing he does himself. Did they teach you the definition of hypocrisy in your psychotherapy courses? Did they teach you the definition of the word hyperbole? Trump credits his lies not to falsehood but to truthful hyperbole. These two words contradict. Sounds like a real nut job in need of your services if you were qualified.

      • Little one. Yeah we know Trump was born of privilege. Got what he called a small loan of $1million from his pappy. Inherited tens of millions from his pappy. I guess with all that wealth a person’s kids could become well educated and successful. Now Trump claims to have lost nearly a billion dollars in one year from buying a failed airline, and over constructing buildings that he lost to the banks. Why did he loose all that money? It was not because he did not have a great opportunity to make these investments profitable, but because of his childish ego of wanting to have and be better than anyone else. So he tried to over build and over furnish his airline and buildings, so the whole world could idolize him (Nimrod-Nebuchadnezzar complex). Many contractors got screwed out of millions due to his failure. Of course when you can file bankruptcy and move on for the next 18 years with your pappy’s multi millions without paying federal taxes, and have the banks pay you millions just to keep your name (people are idolaters) on the buildings, then I guess there is no way to loose. But now we see this man tied up in all kind of litigation with those he has cheated. When he ran his Trump University scam on thousands of common Americans, he was pulling the same re estate seminar scam that has been played on people for years by TV Con Pitch Men. But because of his name (idolaters) believed this jerk really wanted to make them great. Now last count I heard that 500 of his victims in this scam are involved in a class action suit against him for Fraud. By the way Fraud is a criminal offense. Trump is also tied up in many other litigations from folks claiming he stiffed them out of pay including refusing to pay overtime as required by law. Law and order guy sounds more like break the law and cause disorder. Now we see he has acted like a child at the age of 60 when most men have put this behavior behind them at age 20. I am referring to his vulgar mouth bragging of how he misuses women. Perhaps the Bible is the most important book to him, as he claims, if it is, then I suggest he only uses it for a pretense. For any man that has read the Bible knows that not only his vulgar tongue and childish comments and sexual indiscretions are forbidden by scripture, but his serving of mammon (money), and being uncharitable with his wealth is as Paul the apostle put it, The Root Of All Evil. Don’t believe me read I Timothy chapter 6 and all the other things that Jesus himself said about covetousness and serving money rather than God. So you and all the false Christians out there need to shut up about Trump’s bogus claim of Christianity lest he conforms to Christianity, which he obviously has not. Now little one. There is one attribute you forgot to include in the Trump family statistics. Donald’s father Fred died of pneumonia after suffering with Alzheimer’s disease for six years. Beyond age having a family history of Alzheimer is the most significant factor in acquiring the disease. A person with a parent that has Alzheimer is 4 to 10 times more likely to develop this disease than someone without. This disease usually begins to set in the early stages after age 60. So if we follow the reasoning of Trump that Hillary is not stable enough or does not have enough stamina to do the job, then can we take the chance of putting someone like him in office that may become senile on the job and really screw up? From his ramblings and nonsensical statements, and irrational responses to questions, he appears to be eaten up with the dumb butts or has early Alzheimer.

      • The best commentary about Donald Trump on this site. A perfect endorsement for the man who will change history because he is a leader. History does not make leaders; Leaders make history. A venal, manipulative, dishonest, narcissistic, pathetic excuse for a real woman, Hillary Clinton, will not make it to the White House. I am literally betting on it, because I know he will win.

  • “ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” any vote for trump is a failure of that test of patriotism. how can it be said that that sort of caricature is the best and only person that can be the leader of any self-respecting entity???

    • People are afraid of another Hitler with so many things in common; there are so many things not in common that has been learned from history. He has business intelligence, smart, and a fast,Fast learner even at his age! He will not be a Hitler, he is absolutely able to turn the country around; he deserves an honest chance in proper training in protocol. Absolutely every avenue in society has its own lingo,protocol,(if you will), and he has entered a new arena with out any training, especially proper professional training. This is no “biggie”, just absolutely important some one teach him and teach him quickly! If All fairness would be applied, “he” has to make it a mandatory learning absolutely imperative immediately! If he does not receive this message immediately he will lose or if he should some how win with unforeseen World events applicable, He absolutely needs this professional training that he absolutely can not elude. The protocol implemented from the business world can not be applied here in the primary fashion, only as the absolute important secondary – (to avoid prolixity). He has the capabilities, abilities; however as Jimmy Carter in a parallel, most qualified however, the protocol (acceptance in delegating power/authority, Jimmy did not do; retrospectively Trump’s ignorance, non-knowing/learned manners/protocol of/in World intelligence and absolute manners in using the Southern’s coming in the back door comments in sugar coating instead of ugly choice in descriptive exact same meaning without eluding). i.e. Dusting your children’s britches when they misbehave opposed to Yankee- “I’m gonna beat the living shi- out of you”!!! When dealing with people and World affairs, he needs to immediately learn this, relinquish and appoint some to his personal business now and immediately hire and learn the Political protocol to win the election. This is absolutely necessary! Hire another person in the immediate circle to advise him in how to say what he wants to say/convey and to do nothing but inform him on all absolute politics, Country, Armed forces, and World events that is imminent! (if it is not already too late). God will do what he will do from there; he has already funded the Country monetarily from his own pocket, more than any other leader….However, the first woman President has been addressed in circles I am not allowed to speak here in; this could, be moved to the back burner predicated in Trumps learning curve here if applied. We also have Wonderful Bernie to Consider. He is already polished in politics and is not too old either. Time to get to work! Not a minute to loose! World war III is in God’s hand; time, place and event is non predictable and Non President imposed. It will or will not happen when God wants it, not man.

      • We know Trump only cares about himself and is a greedy pig. Even dishwashers and painters had to sue this jerk to get their meager pay. Even some of the lawyers that defended Trump against these common folk were not paid and they had to sue Trump for their fees. He files bankruptcy to avoid paying creditors while he makes off with millions. One mans company was forced into bankruptcy when Thump refused to pay him for extensive cabinet sales and installation in his casinos. Some 500 common folk are in a class action suit against trump for the false claims he made about his bogus University, and the worthless real estate seminars that cost them upwards of $35,000 each. He never showed up at the meetings as promised and instead of getting a picture with him the suckers stood by a cardboard cutout of him for a picture. He is truly, I think not a bigot, but just an all around insensitive jerk, that uses and offends people like a six year old child that was never corrected. Now he pulls a Bible out and runs to the churches for votes. Of course there are enough fraud preachers out there to lift him up as a little god and claim he is converted while never asking him to do as Christ instructed and help the poor and needy nor even denounce his claim that he is above repentance. In his mind he can do no wrong.

      • Uh….man is the one who decides to fight over stuff. God didnt say, start world war 1 or 2. And as for the election, so if trump becomes president, thats because God wants him to? So World War 1 & 2 happened becaise God wanted it to? Ridiclous. Not mention, the votes of MAN decide who wins the election. I doubt God ever switched around votes. You other christaisns make God sound like an evil deity.

    • Agree that Trump’s totally ridiculous statements, platform, threats, bigotry, lack of political experience, WILL. Incite leaders of other countries and create what against the U.S. !

    • What are you talking about? You have no comprehension whatsoever of the issue of WWlll. It is bloodthirsty hawk Clinton who will soon have us lurching in our seats, worrying if we will wake up intact tomorrow morning. And, oh, b the way, Trump will win, in a comfortable margin. Anybody who wants 8 more years of Barack Obama in the person of Crooked Hillary, needs a psychiatrist. REMOVED

      • @YYYGTT I know this is an infuriating election, but no need to personally attack anyone. Respectfully getting your points across always seems to be the best method in political conversation.

  • I’m scared to find out. I keep hoping it’s all a gigantic practical joke and he will reveal a new reality show before the election. The fact that his rhetoric and ridiculous statements has drawn a significant following is more frightening than anything he can do

      • This is the major problem with this entire election. The candidates, particularly Donald Trump, are indulging and inflating the fears and prejudices of people with little education, little interest in separating fact from fiction and are allowing themselves to be used by a madman that speaks outrageous lies and paints an unrealistic picture of what he’s going to do as President. If people only took the time to sift through the b******t and really check facts, educate themselves on the flash points concerning NATO and Russia, then maybe they’d be able to make a rational choice. That’s never going to happen because Americans are too damned lazy and politician rely on that to be able to lead them around like a herd of sheep.

    • All of creation, all of life and and everything in it, including YOU and I and every other living organism on this planet we call home, is a part and parcel of the unlimited, unchanging, infinite mind of God; And aside from a natural disaster one of the only ways that life can or could go wrong is by limited, ever
      changing, finite mind of man; and or a Billionaire Republican Dictator Like “DONALD TRUMP”
