No, he'd have to tear the disgusting dump down, because it is a disgrace as left behind by the last tenants, but he'll have it beautifully rebuilt (with lotsa, lotsa gilded kitsch) in no time. It'll be yuge and beautiful, 'cause he knows beautiful. In fact, no one knows beautiful like he does. Oh, and youse are gonna pay for it.

This is the campaign of a PG-rated cartoon character running for president, interrupting a string of insults the rest of us abandoned in the seventh grade only long enough to resume a concurrent string of half-crazed boasts: We’re gonna start winning again! We’re gonna build an eleventy-billion-foot-high wall! We’re not gonna pay a lot for this muffler! 

All this coarseness is largely masking the truth that the Trump campaign is entirely about coarseness. Take away the unmappable comb-over and the unstoppable mouth and the Freudian-rich debates about genitalia, and there is no Trump campaign. Donald Trump’s few forays into actual issues suggest he is startlingly unaware of how the presidency or even ordinary governance works.

 

 
I think if Trump were truly courageous he would legally rename himself "Genitalia Supreme".

Yes, see my reply to Lazy8 3 pages back.  Haven't changed my ideals on that, yet it no longer applies in today's world.  Now that ideal is seen as obstructionist and as angry old white man.

Who is advocating that today ?  Absolutely no one except the neocon poseurs of the #no trump group who only give it lip service because it suits their immediate needs, but in doing so is hypocritical.  They sold out long ago.

Got to play with the hand that is dealt.  I still haven't decided if I'm going to do any campaign work this year like I did for Romney, which regardless of the outcome, was a great learning experience.

I saw this when he first spewed it, if you can afford to live in an apartment like that in the first place and move at will without regard to financial hardship then you need to just keep your yap shut imo. Olbermann is as an elitist, arrogant, blowhard prick as Trump. He can move out and out of the country to the Riveria or wherever wealthy, arrogant pricks live for all I care.

Thanks for clarifying things. Thought you were a strong Trump supporter! 

I know that feeling about looking for a train wreck: that was the only consolation for me when GW Bush got re-elected in '04. (Wow, seems like yesterday). I (and a lot of my friends) thought, "Well, George is bound to screw up again and then he really sink the Republican ship..." 

Obama was supposed to be the game-changer, the president who was going to unite Republicans and Democrats and usher in a new path for Washington. Sadly, that didn't happen.

I don't if a train wreck is going to change things. You'd have thought that 9/11 or the Great Recession would have jolted both sides to work together, but no. I hope we don't have a train wreck, actually. A lot of people haven't recovered from the '08 downturn.

It's possible that Trump's nomination will force the Republican leadership to re-assess things. So many of them were openly hostile towards him, but now they apparently feel compelled to fall in line behind him. They must know that this could turn into a huge catastrophe for them. The let the nomination process get completely away from them. 

I'm sure a lot of Democratic leaders would like to move past Hillary. She has a lot of baggage, doesn't inspire young people and is in some ways a return to the past.  I think she's quite capable  and extremely experienced but a lot of Democratic friends aren't excited about her. I think that's where Bernie's support comes from.

?? No apologies necessary, kurtster. You have a right to express your views just like the rest of us. If you want to refer to HRC as Hillary the Hag or Crooked Hillary, that's fine by me. 

"My only point is how we all are discussing the candidates not how the media or the candidates themselves discuss each other."

I think there are at least two types of posts in this discussion thread: 

1. Posts that refer to or repeat the media on the candidate or the campaigns. 

2. Posts that discuss the candidates' personalities and policies. Mostly these stick to Trump. 

The first kind of posts don't interest me very much. My eyes glaze over when I see rotekz post a link to a poll or piece on Trump. I don't care about the hype or all the trees in the forest. I care about how qualified the candidates are and what their policies would do if they were elected president. 

I am interested in the bottom line. I want a competent president. I do not want another 9/11, needless war in the Middle East or near-total meltdown of our economy. 

I see in Trump the very worst of America. He is a non-stop liar, a narcissist, a demagogue and a totally unprepared fool. I look at newspaper articles about the man and the more responsible ones only politely hint that the guy doesn't know what he's talking about. More people need to throw Trump's abuse back at him, to insult him and pigeonhole him. 

You may admire the man and his candidacy. I don't. I see an incredibly obnoxious, arrogant and dangerously uninformed blowhard. "Douchebag Don" sums him up perfectly.
 

Trump smears and labels people All The Time. He completely deserves an insulting nickname. He should wear "Douchebag Don" like a heavily used toilet seat around his neck for the rest of his life.  

Feel free to express how you feel about HRC as a potential president. Call her whatever you want. Again, she's been smeared so many times that it's just not very interesting anymore.

Gong Show Trump

 
Hey you almost read my mind!!  {#Clap}

I was thinking "Gong Show Don" because the guy is so full of himself that he'd likely get gonged off the show in short time if he weren't The Donald. 

Sideshow Don isn't bad. Freakshow Don is closer to the harsh reality. 

The way I see it, Trump is primarily selling himself. Other GOP candidates were talking about putting up a wall, standing up to China, but Trump stood out because of his outsize personality. I don't think Trump's supporters aren't focused on his policy promises as much as they like his rude swagger. 

But Trump reminds me of a seriously messed-up, hate-filled kid I knew in junior high. The same bragging, bigotry, bullying, etc. etc. That kid epitomized the slang word "douchebag" popular at that age.

Actually, that kid used to embody that word.  The 70 year-old man behaving like a seriously messed-up 13 year-old now wears the crown. 

"Douchebag Don" sums up Trump perfectly for me.
