Poll On Who The TGOP Wants For Preznit!
It's the best, bestest news we liberals could hope to see. The TGOP are enthralled with a loud-mouthed jackass who's managed to lose dozens of business partners because of his slanderous blatherings.
"I am committed to addressing the issues our country is facing and am confident my business mindset and common sense solutions are resonating with the American people," --Trump
No, Trumpy. You're "resonating" with a small segment of the TGOP, not "America." America dislikes you, your arrogance, and your bigotry. You're going nowhere, pal. Enjoy your 15 minutes of flaming stupidity.
For a supposedly smart business man, he's a major dumbass. Insulting entire countries and cultures isn't going to win anyone any supporters, except bottom-feeders.
That so many TGOPers think Trump is "telling it like it is" is very telling about their values and their bigotry--they think it's delicious with a dollop of Trump on top.
The rest of the country and the world laughs at their foolishness and at who they think should represent the United States of America.

Jeb Lund of the Guardian:
"The party has run so long on nativist anxiety about foreigners plundering lady liberty, stealing jobs and slowly strangling the republic to death that the next step is just calling immigrants rapists, thieves and murderers. And thanks to years of purity testing in Republican primaries, after trying to ignore the issue for weeks, the remaining candidates have only two options left: try to join or outflank Trump to the right or try to non-ignore ignore him by writing him off as “inappropriate.”
The rest of the world can just call Trump an idiot, a man with few ambitions outside of being Trumpy, whose remaining strands of what one might call policy are wisps of spun sugar extruded by hot air, reminding everyone of the tacky coif that sits atop his blanched Smithfield Ham of a face. The Republican Party can’t even luxuriate in ad hominem. Yeah, they could call him an empty suit and a bozo, but that stops working the moment anyone notices that he sounds like a slightly loaded version of themselves."
