Trump Continues His Dickish Behavior

UPDATE:   Go read Infidel753's blog on this subject.

And the GOP loves him even moar!

We follow what Trump does and says because he is leading in every GOP poll, and that means a lot of Republicans/conservatives love what he's offering up as political discourse, and they think he'd be a great leader and representative of the United States of America.  The more he indulges his childish impulses, the more they love him!

He's what the present GOP admires most:

He's rich, he's LOUD!, he's a bully, he speaks in meaningless fact-free sound-bites, he's boorish, pathetically immature, and the tRump end of a very bad joke of an American political party. How low the GOP has sunk that it swoons over a colossally  
embarrassing baboon like him.

Donald Trump Gives Out Lindsey Graham's Cell Phone Number During Speech 

 "Trump told the crowd that Graham had previously been "begging" for a mention on the Fox News show "Fox & Friends" when the real estate mogul still made regular weekly appearances. 

 "I wrote the number down! I don't know if it's the right number, but let's try it," Trump said, proceeding to read the 10-digit phone number. Trump said it was an old number so it might not be work. He then repeated the number. 

 Politico reported that it called Graham at that number after Trump gave it out and the senator picked up. “When it comes to the Donald, nothing surprises me anymore,” Graham told Politico on Tuesday. “It’s just too bad, really." 

 This isn't the first time Trump has doxxed someone who he believes wronged him. When Univision anchor Jorge Ramos sent a handwritten request for an interview, with his personal cell phone number, Trump published it on Instagram. It's since been deleted."

If it wasn't for Trump what would we have for entertainment? Maybe Hillary in a spotted pant suit or JEB saying he has no last name.

Trump resonates with the middle and lower middle class. They have been stomped on for years, especially six, and are not part of the politically correct protected group.
He will wear out his welcome but until that time we just half to laugh. Who are these people they are calling for the poll?

The democrats have selected their candidate so they don't have to go through a slug-fest but the republicans never learn.

When does Palin announce?

skud: "They have been stomped on for years, especially six, and are not part of the politically correct protected group."

IYO, the middle and lower middle class have been "stomped on" during Mr. Obama's presidency?

With nothing to back up that assertion, it's nothing more than b.s. to make groups of people into victims.

Ducky, Palin actually said last spring, IIRC, that she was considering running for preznit this cycle.

Who needs her to spice up this campaign? Trumpet is Palin on meth.

Here Palin is telling everyone that both McCain AND Trumpet are heroes:

"Sen. McCain dedicated his life to serving our country, and in my humble opinion the sacrifices made by all ethical service members are heroic - putting it all on the line to defend freedom IS heroic," Palin said in an email to CNN. "And Donald Trump is a hero in another arena."

…At the same time, she also rebuked McCain's remark.

"Everywhere I go, hard-working patriotic Americans - not 'crazies' or 'wacko birds' - ask me to pass on to Mr. Trump encouragement to keep educating the masses about true ramifications of illegal immigration, and in general the real state of our union," she said.

How Trumpet has "educated the masses" on anything, she doesn't say. Like skudrunner, the troll, she just tosses whatever grievances the tea baggers nurse out there as though it were fact. Both she and Trumpet just make stuff up, and their followers believe them.

Trumpet's a real "hero" who couldn't remember which foot boo-boo kept him from serving his country after his deferments ran out.

What a guy.

Read this on someone's blog aout Donald Trump:

"The Republican Party is responsible for turning Donald Trump into a political figure. Fox News’s Fox and Friends gave Trump a regular Monday segment on their show. The 2012 Republican candidates courted Trump for his endorsement. Republicans let Donald Trump in the door, and now he is burning down their house."

Run Donald Run!

"...the electorate is sick and tired of politicians and Donald Trump doesn't talk like a politician..."

The above statement was published on a right wing blog. It is a perfect example of the bubble most GOPers live in. The term "the electorate" is false. The author of that statement believes that a small percentage of the GOP equals "the electorate." It doesn't. And "the electorate," the American people in general who vote, absolutely do not like Donald Trump, despite the TGOP's fantasies that have them believing the electorate likes this buffoon.

The most recent Gallup poll shows that only one in four Americans consider Trump a serious candidate. The electorate is no more enamored of Trump and his antics today then it was in 1999.

So what do we make of the TGOP's inability to understand that Donald Trump is representative of a decreasing demographic in the TGOP, not the "electorate?"

That thinking is exactly the same as the thinking the GOP got sucked into when John McCain chose another shiny object, Sarah Palin, as a serious politician.

This time around they've traded a pitbull with lipstick for a jackass with a combover.

From the Gallup link you provided:

"Donald Trump's candidacy has already shaped the presidential race in important ways, such as compelling other Republican candidates to address the issue of illegal immigration more forcefully. Yet even as Trump appears to be a prominent voice in the Republican race, nearly three-quarters of Americans do not take his candidacy for president seriously."

Three quarters of Americans don't take Trump's candidacy seriously, but Tea-Baggers think one quarter of the electorate represents all Americans? They create their own reality. Didn't Karl Rove say that once? He was right.

Re: Sarah Palin, "This time around they've traded a pitbull with lipstick for a jackass with a combover."

"The Republicans nominated that shockingly idiotic person to be Vice President under a man who would have been the oldest president ever elected. Why would Donald Trump, or any of his followers, believe that he is too clownish and unprofessional to ever be president? Indeed, why should any of us doubt that the GOP is capable of nominating someone like Trump? They already did." --Digby

Funniest thing on the internet today: Hysterical wingnuts believing that the Clintons are the ones responsible for Donald Trump's popularity with the GOP. Not the fact that they embraced and cheered on a half-wit, half-term governor who thought Africa was a country. Was she a Clintonb0t too? I mean every time a conservative acts like an idiot, the Clintons put them up to it? This is the sort of thing children do when they're caught being naughty--point fingers and blame someone else for their own faults.

The Surfer Dude, FAUX NOOZ and Fiends have cheerleadered Trump for years, as have other right wingers, but now that the monster they created is a big fat comb-over pain-in-the-butt for them, they're blaming everyone but themselves.

R.D., a lot of the righties believe Trump's popularity with a small segment of their party translates into national popularity. As we've seen from the Gallup polls, an overwhelming majority of the American people do not share their delusions.

Rusty O.F., Digby's correct. The GOP paved the way via Sarah Palin's nomination for a loud-mouthed jerk to represent them.

Anonymous, when all else fails, blame the Clintons. The right wingers FEAR HER! LOL! That's a joke. That's what they say when we criticize one of their candidates: we're afraid of him or her. Remember how scared we were of Sarah Palin? Herman Cain? Fred Thompson? Reverse mortgages anyone? Nine, nine, nine! You betcha!

I have read several Bagger news sites and blogs and have seen quite a few saying Donald Trump is working for the Clintons or he's a Democratic plant to make the Baggers look bad, as if they need Trump to do that? It's amazing, but predictable. The Bagger have encouraged the sort of nasty attacks Trump has used and they love any politician who acts like a blowhard,calling that "telling it like it is." Now that they have a real-life bag of sh*t spsreading his crap all over America and proud to be a Republican, the Bagger have to blame someone, anyone, but themselves.

I'm enjoying the show and have plenty of popcorn to last as long as this ass-clown does.

NEW YORK — Donald Trump says the chances that he will launch a third-party White House run will “absolutely” increase if the Republican National Committee is unfair to him during the 2016 primary season.

“The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy,” the business mogul told The Hill in a 40-minute interview from his Manhattan office at Trump Tower on Wednesday. “The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”

Pressed on whether he would run as a third-party candidate if he fails to clinch the GOP nomination, Trump said that “so many people want me to, if I don’t win.”

“I’ll have to see how I’m being treated by the Republicans,” Trump said. “Absolutely, if they’re not fair, that would be a factor.”

A Border Patrol union in Laredo, Texas, will no longer meet with Donald Trump during his Thursday visit to the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a statement from the union released on Thursday morning.

"After careful consideration of all the factors involved in this event and communicating with members of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) at the National level, it has been decided by Local 2455 to pull out of all events involving Donald Trump," Hector Gaza, the president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 in Laredo said in a statement.

Didn't Trumpet say that thousands and thousands and thousands of Border Patrol people were eager to meet with him? Honor him?

Oh yes, here:

"In a statement, the campaign said Trump will meet with members of the National Border Patrol Council in Laredo, Texas, and then tour the border. He’s also expected to meet with law enforcement including Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents.

Mentioning the visit during an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, Trump said local officials wanted him to come.

“I’ve been invited by the Border Patrol and they want to honor me actually, thousands and thousands of them because I’m speaking up,” he said. “They called me, they want to honor me.”

Yes, Trumpet, they're "honoring" you by not meeting with you. IOW, telling you to go stuff your bigoted claims, they don't want to be seen near your toxic self.

Trump made fun of John Kerry breaking his leg.

What next? Will the Trumpet tell Texans they're all pussies for voting in a governor in a wheelchair?
