These are great. The one about his wives can never happen, though. You may have noticed that the American version of “journalists” is not that sharp. For all their incredulity at the rise of the TRump, they hold a yuge amount of responsibility for it. They gave him millions of dollars worth of free advertising, they covered every word he said, they let him call in to their shows and never pinned him down to anything. Okay, Chris Matthews got him to say that women should be punished for having abortions, but normally he asks the question and then keeps interrupting until they have to go to break.
MVDeb, I’m not sure what you meant that the one about his wives can never happen. It is part of the divorce settlement. They stand to lose a great deal if they disparage him. “Gag order” is probably the wrong term.
He seems to be going to rallies now only for validation that he is the Greatest thing since sliced bread, from his devoted following.
His choices make no sense politically. He will be speaking in Bridgeport the home of P.T. Barnum, when he knows he will lose Connecticut.
He goes to bask in the golden glow of approval of his rabid fans.
Since he is pulling out the” theycheating at the polls if I lose” meme, he needs his devotees even more
As is said by people who know him well, he is a black hole. A leaking vessel, that needs constant validation and refilling, because deep deep down he knows he is worthless
Like the queen in Snow White.” Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the richest one of all, the most fabulous,” so on and so forth down the list of the validations he needs in his endless quest for admiration..
I read Trump” is like a drunk driving blindfold, and the ride won’t get any smoother while his inner voice runs the show”
Manafort resigns because he is proved by the Washington post to be a foreign agent lobbying for a Russian backed Lithuanian politico.
Bannon is a thousand times worse than Manafort or Trump, and Trump has been parroting his conspiracy junk for a decade. Another far right wing nut who hates Hillary Clinton and Obama and spouts lie after lie, with a kernel of truth now and then.
Trump has regrets, but hasn’t made an apology. The heat of the debates, baloney. Foul lies spill out of his mouth in an endless stream. He says he will “tell the truth”, and then lies shamelessly.
I doubt he even knows what is a lie any more.
Conway is a calming influence, but for how long. 3 days, a week at most.
His speech where he says he has regrets causing personal pain is about himself, and the backlash he caused for his campaign. He realizes he mucked it up in weeks past for himself and clearly was apologizing to himself for the problems he caused for himself by ill advised choices of words.
He has got himself a better speech writer in his new female Trumpette. She is skilled at handling people like him.
His sucker and smuck following will believe anything he says.
It simply is not in his nature to apologize to anyone. It is all me, me, me and mini me.
Well Melania”s tough lawyer (Hulk Hogan vs Gawker) are sending out letters and threatening to sue anyone in the media or out of it who repeats the allegations that Melania was an escort in the mid nineties. They won’t win, but it would mean endless lawyers fees and litigation for small sites. Which most small sites can’t afford. The Daily Mail can afford to stand their ground. Free Press and all that Jazz.
They pulled her facebook stuff since it was proven padded and false.
His following doesn’t care. they rather enjoy the raciness of a “Pretty Woman” in the White House.
But what seems to have riled them up and they are threatening not to vote for him, is softening the stance on immigration.
The sites I see are furious with him. So he will flip flop back and forth depending on who he is talking to.
New book out based on 20 hours of interviews, plus research. Two writers from the Washington Post.
It explains his appeal to white men of a certain type. At least I think it does to a certain extent. He wants to be a macho, macho man.
When he worked for his father he preferred to pal around the building sites with construction workers, and in his life he prefers that rather crasser male to the monied old money, who he seems to think are false.
So he talks and thinks like his targeted audience who respond to him as if he was genuine
