Trump Shoots Off His Mouth and Makes a Fool of Himself -- AGAIN!

Donald Trump irresponsibly shot off his repulsive mouth last night before all the facts were in, and he made a fool of himself, as usual, proving he is the most unfit candidate to ever run for POTUS: 

 Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, said the development showed his opponent had engaged in corruption “on a scale we have never seen before,’’ while Clinton called for the FBI to release all of the information it has, saying the American people have a right to know everything.

 Kurt Eichenwald of Newsweek gives us the facts:

"There is no indication the emails in question were withheld by Clinton during the investigation, the law enforcement official told Newsweek, nor does the discovery suggest she did anything illegal. Also, none of the emails were to or from Clinton, the official said. Moreover, despite the widespread claims in the media that this development had prompted the FBI to “reopen” of the case, it did not; such investigations are never actually closed, and it is common for law enforcement to discover new information that needs to be examined."

Updated | "The disclosure by the Federal Bureau of Investigation late on Friday, October 28 that it had discovered potential new evidence in its inquiry into Hillary Clinton’s handling of her personal email when she was Secretary of State has virtually nothing to do with any actions taken by the Democratic nominee, according to government records and an official with knowledge of the investigation, who spoke to Newsweek on condition of anonymity. 

 The revelation that the FBI has discovered additional emails convulsed the political world, and led to widespread (and erroneous) claims and speculation. Many Republicans proclaimed that the discovery suggests Clinton may have broken the law, while Democrats condemned FBI Director James Comey for disclosing this information less than two weeks before the election, claiming he did it for political purposes."

An interesting twist... Trump shouted, like an idiot, that this was bigger than Watergate, then accused Clinton of injecting politics into the situation.

But, the damage was done. The earlier headlines, devoid of the real facts had already sealed the deal for many who want to believe what they want to believe, despite the facts. Here's the struggle one conservative blogger faced...

"By the way, I just heard and understood better what Clinton’s newest FBI situation is and it’s weak; it says it’s about “whether Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was secretary of State.”

None of the emails in question are to OR from HRC, so she’ll dodge this; other heads will roll but not hers. Very disappointed here."

Why is she disappointed? Is it because the facts don't support her hopes? Was she hoping that our Sec State would mishandle classified info? Is she rooting for bad stuff from our government? Or is it her belief that Clinton surely is a disgusting, lying, lout enabling cheater and so she is looking for anything to wipe our her chances?

i get why people are wary of HRC. I am too, but the hate is too much. And before anyone posts that I hate Trump, get a clue. I'm disgusted at him and I ridicule his positions and statements, just like many Republicans do. But I've never, nor will I call him a beast, the scum of the earth, or worse...

Yet the "Character Matters" right has no problems doing so.

Have a great weekend Shaw... I'm traveling...

And you liberals say there's no voter fraud!

In an interview with Iowa Public Radio, Rote said that it was a "spur of the moment" decision, and that she was afraid her first vote for Trump would be changed to one for Hillary Clinton.

"The polls are rigged," Rote told Iowa Public Radio.

An innocent attempt to unrig the polls.

The only way for Trump not to make a fool of himself is to keep his mouth shut. Even then, the odds are only 50-50 that it will work.

Dave: "Why is she disappointed?"

As you noted, that blogger and other conservatives (also some Dems) have bought into the narrative that Hillary is the Devil incarnate. Of course she isn't. Sober analysts have studied her for over 25 years and determined that she's a pragmatic pol, who often has trouble with telling the WHOLE truth, which is understandable because of what she experienced as FLOTUS, and SoS. IOW, Hillary is no demon. A lot of what we're witnessing is ugly misogyny.

Someone left a "poem" (since deleted) by a Hillary hater that demonstrates how irrational people are where Hillary is concerned. The person who wrote the "poem," delights in imagining Hillary being blown to bits and all her female private parts scattered to the four winds. That's something mature adults would see as the secret wishes of a mentally undeveloped man who needs to work out his anger and rage against a woman by dreaming of mutilating her. IOW, sick as you-know-what.

How will people as sick as that deal with a Hillary in the White House? We shall see.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Kevin, Ironic, isn't it. The Trumpistas have been fed the rot about people "rigging" and "cheating" this election, and here is one of their own doing just that.

Jerry, I'm guessing you're correct. Even with his mouth shut, Trump is a first-class liar.

Michelle and Barack Obama don’t want to get mixed up in the scandals of Crooked Hillary, especially with 10 days remaining till election. Michelle and Obama are backing off until the fire cools off!

So when the candidate stalled releasing her emails, deleting 30+K of them, destroying laptops, has hubby convince the AG to not file charges, now she wants full disclosure of the emails immediately.
I guess you don't find that ironic even for confirmed yellow dogs it seems a stretch.

She should have just told the truth a year ago and this would all be behind her.
Now when she gets elected she will have a darker cloud hanging over her.
At least she supported Huma after her husband texted his privates to several women. And to think trump kissed a stripper without her permission, he should be ashamed of himself.

IMHO - Uh wrong Both are out in the swing states campaigning for the President Elec -- errr I mean Hillary Clinton.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Um, skid...Donald Trump is facing TWO law suits that two judges ruled had merit.. One is for defrauding people, including the elderly, out of thousands of dollars for his fake "university." The other is for CHILD RAPE. So, no. The GOP candidate didn't just kiss a stripper.

Donald Trump is facing charges for CHILD RAPE. Let that sink in. And then come back and whine about emails.

Shaw Kenawe said...

And, btw, if Trump is elected, he'll be facing a cloud the size of Brazil and the color of coal in atar pit. One law suit for cheating people with his fake university and another law suit for child rape. And you righties are spitting nails over emails. The aren't enough words to describe how insane that is.
