But he maintained: "My position has not changed."

However, Mr Trump quickly reversed his position, saying only the person who performed the abortion should be punished.

Presidential candidate Donald Trump briefly called for "some form of punishment" for women who have abortions, if it became illegal.

Judging from some of the bat shit crazy hater spew that has permeated this wonderful sanctuary that Bill and Rebecca were so gracious and kind to create for us,I'd say her weak shit would be instantly emoliated by the 2 or 3 that just will not not stop with the psycho vile that shames her best misguided work.

Let's not misconstrue my reference to  McCain as a stamp of approval for him for anything other than his military service to our country.

My main beef with Trump (and what makes him unworthy of the Presidential office in my eyes) is his failure to recognize McCain as a war hero and -by extension- his true failure to fully appreciate the sacrifices that military men and women take especially those that had the misfortune of becoming POWs. If McCain isn't a war hero to Trump... then who the hell is? The real issue; however, may be Trump's underlying insecurity with having to share the spotlight with someone of equal or greater importance. In Trump's mind there is no one in any room more important than he is and the mere appearance that someone is being placed on a pedestal higher than his is met with his petulant belittling remarks or backhanded compliments meant to knock them down. In my life I don't think that I have witnessed more childish behavior from a grown man than I have seen in Trump and somehow he is lauded for this as his unbridled outspokenness?

Clearly my parents missed my true genius back in '69 when I once mustered enough nerve to call them both poo-poo heads during a heated time-for-bed exchange.   

 
Well-said. Somehow "speaking your mind" makes someone appear Presidential. If that's the case, I have some family members that should have been President long ago.

I'm wondering what happens when he breaks his pledge. Will everyone frown and still do business with him or will he be shunned as selfish and untrustworthy? 
 

 
Depends who everyone is.  This is the repub inhouse stop Trump movement at work who came up with the idea of the pledge to trip up Trump in the beginning and now are themselves abandoning the pledge cuz its working against them with Trump winning.

Being aware of the circumstances myself, it won't hurt me in regards to Trump.  He is not equivocating about it like Cruz, Kasich, et al are.  With repubs, the establishment stands the most to lose in what little cred it has left with the rank and file.

Independents and dems ?  Who knows.  As illustrated by my response to the linked article, those not knowing the real circumstances will not investigate and assume as our friend here has that Trump's word is meaningless across the board, while it is far more complex than that.  In reality Trump is being most honest about this whole matter, re: the pledge.

 
Edit:  I'll wade even deeper cuz I got the time right now.  The repub establishment is so in denial about the discontent facing it.  It ignores the fact that the anti establishment vote is nearly 75% when you combine Trump and Cruz.  They are now screwing Cruz and themselves (without knowing it) by trying to hook up with Cruz to obstruct Trump and force an open convention.  Cruz will soon be seen as the other establishment candidate because he is accepting help from it.  Kasich is plain nutz with his staying and needing more delegates than are left even if he got them all.

What all these pundits and articles are getting wrong is that the Media did not create Trump and bring him to the fore.  The establishment of both parties created the need for Trump by their willful abuse and abandonment of the rank and file.  Trump did what any successful entrepreneur does.  Find a need and fill it.  And exploit it.

Will he set up a third party candidacy? It's hard to get on the ballot that late — but if the Libertarians or some other perennial group of also-rans wants to adopt him, he can be their candidate.

Not only is that condescending, but shows a shocking ignorance of the Libertarian party and all they stand for to think that would even be a consideration.  Wow.  And they wonder why there are so many voters fed up with the arrogant establishment.{#Rolleyes}

So Trump has withdrawn his pledge not to run as a third-party candidate.

But there's more to this.

One of his top aides quit the campaign, very disillusioned, and wrote a long rant, reprinted elsewhere on Facebook, about Trump's incompetency.

What she said was very revealing — that Trump never expected to do better than 10% or 12%. He was in it for the publicity.

At the beginning, he didn't to be president, he just wanted to play in the big game for awhile. That he has done so well ... now, he's playing for the gold ring.

And now that the republican leadership is openly plotting to keep him from the nomination, either he gets enough voters to win the nomination on the first ballot — or he'll walk away as soon as it becomes obvious that he won't have the 1237. He'll do it before the convention, before he suffers the humiliation of losing the nomination.

Will he set up a third party candidacy? It's hard to get on the ballot that late — but if the Libertarians or some other perennial group of also-rans wants to adopt him, he can be their candidate.

However this plays out, Trump has very effectively broken the republican nominating process. Even without his participation, the process would have been a circus of horrors — but Trump turned it into a reality-show train wreck.

The reason why Trump has done so well in the primaries is precisely because he's Pennywise the Clown. You know how you slow down when you drive past an auto accident, looking to see if there's blood on the highway...? Yeah, it's that kind of morbid fascination.

Trump's singular skill, no matter what arena he's in, is to suck the air out of the room with his boorishness — he pulls the attention away from everyone else by his antics. So the media gave him all this insane attention and ... there's a thing you learn in first year Film School. Whoever gets the most camera time, that's the hero of the picture.

Trump effectively stole the spotlight. A year ago, the pundits were saying it was Jeb's to lose — ignoring the fact that the Bush name is poison. It was always obvious that Cruz and Christie and Jindal and Rubio were going to make a run — but when the clown car loaded up with Carson and Fiorina, Santorum and Kasich as well, and then Walker and Perry and Pataki and Graham, it became impossible for anyone to get traction because no one except Trump was getting any serious air time.

Trump is a product of the irresponsible behavior of the media. Where once he would have been dismissed as an irrelevant sideshow, he's now a reality show superstar — and when the news media started pursuing ratings instead of actual news, this clusterfuck was inevitable. There's a saying in TV news. "If it bleeds, it leads." Well, the republicans have been bleeding for a year — thanks to the orange oompa-loompa — and the result has been a near-total destruction of the nominating process. Even without Trump, it would have been a disastrous year for the party, but with Trump bullying everyone who got in his way, steamrolling through the primaries like an elephant in musk, we have all been made witness to what happens to a political system when it has been deliberately subverted.

The subversion of the GOP began with the John Birch Society, funded by the Koch brothers' sire. What is happening this year has been inevitable — but there's a certain schadenfreude in seeing Trump steal their whole ball game.

The Tea Party has given birth to the Trump Party and whatever happens this year, the Trump movement is not going to evaporate. Trump might try again in four years. Or the Trump movement will evolve into its next horrific iteration. It's impossible to predict.

But one thing is certain, Trump will do whatever feeds Trump's ego. And that means that no matter what happens, we will not see the end of him until he finally relocates to Trump Graveyard.
