There is a double standard in this election: Trump supporters have a fit about Hillary not telling you EVERYthing, meanwhile, her opponent does not tell you ANYthing.

Where are his tax records? Hillary, like every presidential candidate for the past 40 years, has provided them for examination. Trump has not. Why?

Shaw Kenawe said...

"Donald Trump wouldn’t provide Dr. Oz with the full results of his physical. Instead, he read a summary. Hillary Clinton has released a detailed letter to the public that addressed her current health, medications that she is taking and future prognosis.

Hillary Clinton is beating Trump on transparency, as the health issue that he injected into the campaign is backfiring on the GOP nominee."

What is it about his health that Trump is hiding????

Dave Miller said...

And yet it is starting to look as if he will win anyways. The debates will decide it...

Shaw Kenawe said...


Do you not follow FiveThirtyEight? It's a 60% Hillary to 30% Trump possibility of winning the presidency. Trump can't win the presidency with only the angry white vote. Wait for the debates. Remember in 2012 when Obama did a terrible job in one of the debates? He came roaring back and won the election. And Romney was a far, far, better candidate than is crazy Trump.

I constantly hear how Hillary isn't transparent, yet Trump is the one who hasn't turned over his tax returns or his detailed health records to the public for examination. Hillary has.

Trump has far, far worse problems with his Trump Foundation than the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton comes out clean. Look it up. He has a possible corruption problem with his paying off AGs to not go forward with the law suit against Trump U. in Florida and Texas. And there's the child rape lawsuit still out there. We don't know the extent of his involvement with Russian and other foreign financiers. And what about Trump's brag that he would bomb the Iranians because of a gesture? These are YUUUGE issues.

And yet there are people who say Hillary has honesty and transparency problems because she didn't tell people she had pneumonia?

Just today, Trump and his daughter claimed Hillary hasn't come out with child care policies. That is a blatant lie. Her child care policies have been out there for months. Another egregious Trump lie.

I'm beginning to understand that even though Hillary has her problems, for some reason lots of people, liberals included, are focusing on her misdemeanors and giving Trump a pass. This isn't funny anymore.

How is the even possible in this country????????

Jerry Critter said...

I think it would be interesting to have a debate where the debaters ask the questions. Of course, they would never agree to it.

Rational Nation USA said...


Are we as a nation going to embrace a Tweet-a-thon campaign/debate venue?

All claims by all candidates require the individual do their due diligence as we know that no candidate is completely honest.

2016 is quite possibly the year of least honesty and transparency in some time.

Trump is simply greasing the tubes to America's decline.

And the beat goes on...

30 second sound bite.

Rightwing media (FAUX News) Trump shill machine.

Up has become down and down up.

Rightwing smoke and mirrors.

Truth is now considered false and lies have become truth.

It is all about the narrative and whatever it takes to win.

Integrity is no longer important.

Powell said Trump is a national disgrace. He is right.

Flying Junior said...


You want Trump to kick Hillary's butt, n'est ce pas?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Congratulations Progressive Eruptions readers! For the first time in weeks, non-troll comments outnumbered the troll comments (deleted)!

Have the rar right blogs folded? Because the far right trolls have come here almost everyday to make fools of themselves!

Shaw Kenawe said...

From a friend on facebook:

1) In 1973: Hillary went to work at the Children’s Defense Fund

2) In 1977: Hillary co-founded one of Arkansas’ early child advocacy groups.

3) In 1979: Hillary became a strong advocate for the state’s only pediatric hospital, helping start Arkansas’ first advanced nursery for premature or ill infants.

4) In 1983: Hillary helped reform and improve Arkansas’s public school system.

5) In 1985: Hillary helped establish the Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program in Arkansas.

6) In 1997: Hillary worked with Republicans and Democrats to pass the Children’s Health Insurance Program, giving 8 million children health coverage.

7) Starting in 2001: Hillary helped write laws aimed at improving education and further protecting children’s health.

8) Starting in 2009: Hillary fought against the exploitation of children—especially young girls—around the world.

While Hillary was accomplishing all of that, Trump was judging beauty pageants, cheating on his wives, and building casinos, then going bankrupt.

Seriously, though. Name one thing Trump has done to improve the lives of children.

Shaw Kenawe said...

And keep this in mind as we listen to the hyenas on the right crowing now about Trump's gaining in the polls:

Toward the end of the 2012 election cycle, Obama was only ahead of Romney by 1 point.

That is a fact.

Remember how that turned out for Romney?

Keep calm and carry on.

Dave Miller said...

FJ... I don't like either one of them. I'm just looking at trends and momentum, which Trump has tight now.

I've said for months, this race will come down to FL, PA and OH. Win two, and you're the president. Simple math.

Dave Miller said...

Shaw... I think many on the Dem side are missing something... Yes, HRC has done tons more for people in her career... But people this election cycle don't care.

The rich folks are always gonna go for the pro rich guy. But this year the middle class, and lots of poor folks, those left behind in the recovery, are saying enough!

They are sick and tired of politics as usual, want real change and are willing to gamble on a bomb thrower to get that perceived change.

Watch those 3 states. If Trump wins them, and NV, as it's looking today, he will be the president and will carry the GOP senate candidates in three of those states to a win, denying the Dems control there.

And yes, you're welcome to join me the next four years in Mexico if that happens.
