"This hideous little man..."

From the brilliant PM Carpenter on Donald Trump's disastrous appearance at the Al Smith dinner on Thursday evening:

Thus did Donald J. Trump vulgarize the one, theretofore-unmolested institution of American politics — the congenial Al Smith Dinner, a "presidential campaign ritual." (The one truly humorous moment of the evening came when Hillary ridiculed Rudy Giuliani for having called The Donald a "genius." I have never seen such a scowling, stone-set face in reaction. But what did I expect? Members of brownshirted gangs aren't known for their sense of humor.) 

 So, to repeat, no Trumpian vulgarization has been left undone. And the words of President Obama are worth repeating as well: Trump "is not a joking matter." Obama was speaking specifically yesterday about the charlatan's vulgar "suggestion" of a rigged election "without a shred of evidence" — "the first major party nominee in American history" to do so — and yet that is but one example among many of the transcendent harm this hideous little man is doing to the traditional political system I, you, Obama, and every sane American loves. 

 It is to be hoped the harm is as temporary as it is prodigious. Indeed I, for one, am confident of that. My confidence, however, doesn't write coming history. Trump has vulgarized, disgraced and debauched the finest political system ever known to humanity. This hideous little man is just that, and what I trust is Trump's inevitable and dispositive end, 18 days from now, cannot come soon enough. With every passing day, he vulgarizes American politics a bit more — and though he is doomed, with the smallest of successes, the lowest of bars have a way of lingering.

Donald Trump: Predicts He Will Be A Sore Loser

Trump said today that the only outcome of this election that he will accept is if he wins. (hahahaha!)

A perfect description of a SORE LOSER.

Here's candidate Trump:

"I'll Keep You In Suspense."

Donald Trump Confirms At Third Debate He Is A Domestic Insurrectionist 
By Jonathan Chait

"I'll keep you in suspense."

Donald Trump's  answer to the question of whether or not he'd accept the results of the November presidential election.

First time in America's history a candidate refused to say he'd accept the outcome of our presidential election.

Sorry, Donnie, you just threw 240 years of our American heritage in the toilet.

The voters will remember.

And women voters will remember the moment when you leaned into the mic and called Hillary "Such a nasty woman."

Donald Trump continued his championship lying when he lied about knowing Vladimir Putin.

Hillary was clearly the winner. She had substantive answers, was dignified, and knew what she was talking about.

Trump confirmed once again that he is unfit to be POTUS.

 PM Carpenter:

"Trump and the proverbial whimper, not a bang 

There is nothing else left to say (although that won't stop me). Last night was also the last little flicker of Trump's magic lamp; the finishing bamboozlement of a dying party; the closing and dimmest breach of respectable American politics since the demagogic rot of antebellum Democrats. No fat lady need sing on November 8th, for last night's operatic tragicomedy was dispositive."

"Was it shocking — or "breathtaking," as the Washington Post's editorial board frames it this morning — that this infantile clown again refused to endorse democracy's upcoming verdict? Of course not. This was but another tantrum of the toddler Trump, who has never exceeded the political unseriousness of his developmentally arrested followers. And so Trump & Friends flickers out, the GOP dies, and a fresh Lost Cause is born unto the walking dead."

The Fury and Failure of Donald Trump by Matt Taibbi

(As this post is published, cable news is reporting that Georgia and Texas are turning purple and could be in play for Hillary Clinton!)

As we continue to suffer through the execrable droppings coming from the tiny mouth of the Short-Fingered Vulgarian over the next few weeks until the election, I highly recommend this fine piece by Matt Taibbi so that you will understand that the revulsion you feel every time you hear and see Trump is not a partisan reaction, but the normal reaction of sane, decent people when they're confronted with "a globally despised cross of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Charlie Sheen, and Satan."

The Fury and Failure of Donald Trump 

 Win, lose or drop out, the Republican nominee has laid waste to the American political system. On the trail for the last gasp of the ugliest campaign in our nation's history
