Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump

Another British publication praises Michelle Obama for her moving speech:

Michelle Obama has dragged this US election out of the gutter 
by Anne Perkins, The Guardian 

"Michelle Obama may have done the seemingly impossible. She may just have rescued the US elections from the grotesque and demeaning mire into which they have descended. She did something even more remarkable, and just as badly needed. With the touch of a poet, her speech last night shamed the tat and the tawdry of populism and held out the possibility of something better. She lent her extraordinary ability to say what people are feeling to every English-speaking woman in the world."

FLOTUS Michelle Obama is the antidote to the toxic, poisonous rhetoric that pervades everything Trump screams at his ever decreasing support mobs.

Trump is telling his hordes that the election is rigged, and if he loses, it's not because, as everyone with a functioning intellect has said, he's an ignorant dirtbag, but because Hillary controls the media, the banks, the stock market, the DoJ, and every lever of power on the planet. He is suggesting that our democracy is rotten, and ONLY HE can fix it. Exactly what a totalitarian demagogue, ready to place his boot on his gullible followers' necks says in order to gain access to power.

Trump is not just a dirtbag, he's a dangerous dirtbag.

From Digby

"And if Trump doesn’t win, some are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination, as fantastical and unhinged as that may seem.

 “If she’s in office, I hope we can start a coup. She should be in prison or shot. That’s how I feel about it,” Dan Bowman, a 50-year-old contractor, said of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. “We’re going to have a revolution and take them out of office if that’s what it takes. There’s going to be a lot of bloodshed. But that’s what it’s going to take. . . . I would do whatever I can for my country.” 

 He then placed a Trump mask on his face and posed for pictures. [...] 

Above all, Trump is now using the prospect of his loss to undermine faith in democratic institutions. 

“It’s one big fix,’’ Trump said Friday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C. “This whole election is being rigged.’’ 

 He saved some of his harshest criticism for the media, which he said is in league with Clinton to steal the election. 

 “The media is indeed sick, and it’s making our country sick, and we’re going to stop it,” he said."

I hope President Obama has the National Guard ready for Trump's blood-thirsty mobs.

Here's how Trump is making America Great Again!

This is Trump's gift to every grandchild in America: Grandpa and Grandma are proud to say, "F**k Your Feelings!"

And she's proud to be a Trump "girl," ready for sexual assault.

This beauty wants Trump to talk "dirty" to her. Isn't that every mother and father's dream for their daughter ?

Those pictures are a perfect picture of people standing up for the decency of America. The shining city on a hill. The beacon of hope. A thousand points of light.

The place where the lady stands tall and says "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless..."

Sadly, the GOP no longer represents these great values of the United States... the values that set us apart from despots around the world.

Are the images displayed here how we want the world to see us?

Trump gets even crazier

"Donald Trump suggested on Saturday that Hillary Clinton might have taken performance-enhancing drugs to prepare for their presidential debates, and that both candidates for president should be tested before Wednesday’s final debate."

The man is mentally ill.

It can't be real. It's too absurd. I refuse to believe it.

I've been feeling ill. Probably won't pass until the tRump virus is purged from politics on Nov. 8th.

That's nice, Dear.

But this is even nicer:

Poll: Women propel Hillary Clinton into battleground lead over Donald Trump

A big swing in the women’s vote has propelled Hillary Clinton into a six-point lead across the battleground states, as seven in ten women feel Donald Trump does not respect them.

Very Interesting . Oh and question for folks. If only a TINY minority TRUST the media why in the hell would ANYONE be truthful when the media calls them and polls them?

Shaw Kenawe said...

Not all polling organizations are media based. For one example, Marquette University Law School does election polling.

How will "Joan's" feelings hold up after reading this?

In a head-to-head matchup, Clinton maintains a 10 point lead, 51-41, with 10 percent undecided.

As NBC News put it:

To put Clinton’s current 11-point lead into perspective, Barack Obama beat John McCain by seven points nationally in 2008. And Obama’s margin of victory over Mitt Romney in 2012 was four points.

Both pollsters who coordinated with NBC News, Democrat Fred Yang and Republican Bill McInturff, both came to the conclusion that Trump does not have a chance of winning the presidency.

One of the biggest contributing factors to Clinton’s lead in her 20 point advantage with women (55-35 percent), her 60 point advantage with non-white voters (76-16 percent), and her gain among men in which she’s behind by just three points, 48-45 percent.

The poll als0 shows President Obama’s approval rating at 53 percent, a positive for Clinton heading into the final stretch of the election.

Now that the polls have shown a consistent lead for Clinton, Trump has no other way to legitimize his failing, pathetic campaign than to claim it’s going to be “rigged” against them thanks to minority communities, dead people, a globalist conspiracy.

Anonymous @2:55, I have no idea who this "Joan" troll is or where it came from, but it's pretty evident it's one of those Trump deplorables who has a desperate need to troll Liberal blogs because it knows that Trump is THIS.

So sad.

Bluebull said...

Shameful disgusting people and totally UnAmerican. They will never get the stink of Trump off of themselves and, personally, I could never again respect their opinion if they backed Trump.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Shameful and driven by pure hatred. As I stated before, I have no respect for a group of people who claim to be "family values" Christians while supporting Trump -- who's everything family values Christians reject. This election has stripped the facade from the hypocrites.
