Donald Trump: The Self-Absorbed Man-Child

Here's the Trumper on who he consults on foreign policy:

Just how incredibly dangerous Trump’s personality is if he were to get into the White House became scarily clear on NBC’s Morning Joe recently when host Mika Brzezinski asked Trump about his foreign policy team,
“Who are you consulting with consistently so that you’re ready on day one?”
Trump replied,
“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things. … My primary consultant is myself, and I have a good instinct for this stuff.”

Trump in Salt Lake City proving he can out-asshole himself every day of the week:

In Salt Lake City, Trump Calls Romney a Choke Artist, Questions His Mormonism

"I have many friends that live in Salt Lake City...Mitt Romney is not one of them. Did he choke?...Are you sure he's a Mormon? Are we sure?"

The Pope called into question Trump's "Christianity" and Trump had a 2-year old hissy fit saying no one should ever call into question anyone's religion.

No one except the self-centered asshole, Donald Trump!

He's made fun of Ben Carson's religion, Cruz's religion, and now Romney's.

He's a perfect candidate for the confused idiots on the right.

And when I need brain surgery, I always consult with myself too, cuz I've got a good brain.

The quote on how to handle the ladies is why I'm so glad he's going to be running against Hillary (as much as I like Bernie). Trump seems to have a real problem with misogyny. He's going to freak out in the debates.

And OMG:

“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things. … My primary consultant is myself, and I have a good instinct for this stuff.”

It's a coin toss over whether that is better or worse than Ted Cruz's team.

Trump,gets away with things that no other politician does form the press, his supporters, and his opponents - both republican and democratic.

Kevin: "He's going to freak out in the debates."

I read somewhere that Trump may say there've been enough debates and that he doesn't want anymore (which he absolutely can do), because he knows Hillary or Bernie would expose him for the obnoxious dunce that he is on foreign and domestic policy. The media and his enablers (Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians) wouldn't let that deter them from continuing to support the fraud.

I've read that he's bribed some cable news people to get good coverage and easy questions. I don't know how true that is, but I do know that he absolutely has gotten away with stuff no other candidate has ever gotten away with.

The Daily Beast discusses what Jerry stated:

“The media laps him up, and mainstream political observers are flummoxed,” said University of Georgia media studies professor Jeffrey P. Jones, a pioneer in the academic field of political entertainment television. “For a sizable percentage of Republican primary voters, Trump has transformed the whole traditional nature of what constitutes acceptable political rhetoric, and they just don’t care if he says stuff that in polite society would be considered sexist, misogynist, or racist. Any other candidate would be disqualified.”


Trump indeed acts like a privileged two-year old, saying stream-of-conscious garbage that any normal adult would find repulsive and vulgar. But the current mood of the Goopers is that they don't care; they want to destroy everything they used to hold dear, and they don't care what happens to this country while they're having their public breakdown and tantrum.

Since their politicians have deceived them and done nothing they hoped electing them would bring them, they've decided to go what we once called "postal" and destroy not just themselves but anyone who disagrees with them. Trump matches them and their self-absorbed idea that America isn't great anymore.

He and Carson.

The Benito Bandito from Hell gets away with shit because he knows how to play a corrupt media that panders for viewership and ratings. These days, there is no more honesty or integrity anywhere. The decline of civilization, pure and simple!

Call him up and give him hell.

Apologies to W.B. Yeats:

And what vulgar beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards D.C. to be president?

Trump has no chance of winning the presidency when half of America believes he's a fascist.

From HuffPost:

"Half of America believes Donald Trump’s campaign exhibits fascist undertones, with only 30 percent disagreeing*, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll. The sentiment isn’t contained to Democrats, who unsurprisingly are willing to agree with a negative statement about their political rivals. Forty-five percent of independents also say Trump’s campaign has echoes of fascism, as do a full 28 percent of Republicans.

About half the country believes Trump encourages violence at his campaign events, with just 34 percent saying he doesn’t. The rest aren’t sure. Meanwhile, 27 percent of Republicans say it’s acceptable to “rough up” protesters at political events."


*Only 30% disagree? That means a whopping 70% thinks the Trumper is a disaster.

I'm going to relish his defeat in November all the more because he will be beaten by a woman.

Trump won't win a national election, but get used to bigotry being a part of American life. It always has been.

I'm beginning to think the GOP is going to sabotage him and not let him run. At the very least, they're going to do all they can to stop him. It's going to be a real blood bath.

All the Dems have to do is stay united, and if Hillary gets the nomination, Bernie will unite behind her, he's that sort of guy, and Hillary will do the same. There isn't the sort of schism in the Democratic Party that is ripping the GOP apart. Some of Bernie's supporters are quite passionate, but overall the Dems will not be torn apart.

it's the chicken and egg syndrome.

is trump acting nuts because his followers are nuts and he's pandering to them or are his followers acting like lunatics because of trump?

Via Mediaite: Leaked Audio Catches Mika and Joe Chatting With Trump During Break...

Brzezinski... tried to ask Scarborough about a question she planned to ask Trump... "Do you not want me to do, the um, the ones with, um, deportation?" "We really do have to go to some questions", Scarborough responded. "That's right", Trump agreed, before joking, "Nothing too hard, Mika". "Okay", Brzezinski can be heard telling someone. In the end, there were no questions about immigration or deportations during the town hall.
