CNN Offers Insight Into Trump Campaign Psyche (It was Ugly)

In Conway, Jones, Lewandowski, Navarro, Trump, Trump In Milwaukee, Trumpism, Your GOP on August 17, 2016 at 10:34 AM

Corey Lewandowski, who tried to blast Navarro saying, “What you don’t want to talk about is the thousand Hispanics that he employees in Florida, no one wants to mention that fact. Which is more so than Ana Navarro employees or for that matter anyone else.”

Well, this is hat happens when the uninformed attempts to verbally joust with a professional commentator.  

Donald Trump apparently decided on Tuesday that maybe he should try to get more than one percent of the black vote and proceeded to make a complete fool of himself.
Speaking to almost entirely white crowd in West Bend, Wis., the Republican nominee said that Hillary Clinton is the one who is really guilty of “bigotry.” Trump also claimed that Democrats have “done nothing in return” for the African Americans who vote for them.
They’ve taken advantage of the African-American citizen,” Trump said. “It’s time to give the Democrats some competition for these votes and it’s time to rebuild the inner cities of America and reject the failed, rigged system.
“We reject the bigotry of Hillary Clinton, which panders to and talks down to communities of color and sees them only as votes, that’s all they care about, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” he said. “They have taken advantage.
Trump continued, insisting that the lack of policing has hit African American communities the hardest. In the wake of protests and increased racial tensions in Milwaukee following another fatal police shooting of a black man, which was only about 40 miles from where he was speaking, Trump called for enhanced law enforcement.
According to Trump, “law-abiding African-American citizens living in these neighborhoods” are the hardest hit by lawlessness. Then he added that “there is no compassion in tolerating lawless conduct for anyone.”
Not surprisingly, Twitter erupted in mockery and called Trump out on his bullshit.
That speech still has me heated. African Americans? We see right thru him & that’s exactly why he has just 1% of our vote.
Trump’s speech wasn’t aimed at African-Americans. At a guess, it’s aimed at moderate white conservatives who don’t want to be seen as racist

Hey @realDonaldTrump I wonder why African Americans want nothing 2 do w/ur campaign?!
“There were more African-Americans in the choir that opened up the DNC than there were in the entire RNC.”
— @ananavarro
“Trump’s speech tonight will resonate with African-Americans” — White people
If Trump cares this much about African Americans, he’ll come out strongly against all the laws designed to suppress their votes. Right?
Trump: Immigrants will “take all the jobs, including from low-income African Americans.”

He doesn’t even know he’s being racist.

Trump has only said one actual thing he plans to do to win over African Americans: “More police.”

Great plan y’all.

Trump – whose early properties marked African Americans with a ‘C’ for ‘Colored’ – says he’s candidate African Americans have been waiting 4
Trump is delivering standard Republican stuff about how blacks are being tricked by Democrats. Blacks generally do not believe this.
It takes some audacity for a man with a 1% to 2% approval rating with African-Americans to present himself as their true savior.

Trump started his speech seemingly trying to appeal to African Americans, who it would seem were not at the rally.
Wow. @realDonaldTrump is explaining how much he wants to help African-Americans — to a room that is 99.9% white.
Well, it certainly seems like that was effective. Surely Trump will see a huge boost in the polls now that he has successfully convinced African Americans that he is the candidate, the best candidate, to protect their interests. Who gives a damn that David Duke, the former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, is his BFF. Nevermind the fact that he is the darling of white supremacists and loves retweeting neo-Nazis. It is obviously Hillary Clinton that is real racist bigot here. Right?
No one, not even the narcissistic billionaire himself, can seriously believe that people are going to buy this crap.

Trump’s Man And Growing Connections To Putin

In GOP 2016, GOP Leadership Americans lovign Putin, Putin and Trump, Trump. YOUR GOP, Trumpism on August 16, 2016 at 12:26 PM

We don’t actually partake in conspiracy writing here at the TPI, but we are observant and we will ask questions when we notice ‘strange things happening.’

Let’s start with reality. Corey Lewandowski was Trump’s campaign manager from June 2015 at the tie of his declaration to run for the GOP nomination As we approached winning the campaign via millions of conservative (GOP) voters, what happened to Lewandowski?  He was offered Trump’s famous refrain of: ” You’re fired.”  Who came into the picture upon Lewandowski’s firing? Actually, Lewandowski’s replacement was probably decided well before he was unceremoniously fired as the sampling manager (and immediately hired by CNN).

Trump somehow came across this man:

Paul Manafort
Image result for manafort
Paul John Manafort, Jr. is an American lobbyist and political consultant. Manafort was an adviser to the presidential campaigns of Republicans Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, …Wikipedia
In addition to an existence “for hire” background around the GOP, ti seems Manafort has other chapters in his storied history.

Before we move to recent revelations about Manafort’s more recent “consulting” across the globe, let’s establish a couple of points. The points of the lie as a critical tool of consultancy.

The Art of the Lie

I. CNNs Chris Sumo interview Manafort regarding Trump’s wife’s plagiarized convention speech. Manafrort lied about the plagiarism without regard for irrefutable evidence to the contrary. He offered a straight faced lie equal to any carnival barker seeking your ticket purchase for his fake tent exhibit. 

Within hours of the on-camera lies, the Trump campaign issued statements regarding the alleged speechwriter and her ‘confessions: of adding the stolen phraseology.  Why lie?

II. Within the past 72 hours, Manafort again joined the CNN cameras for another round of “lie for effect.”  Jake Tapper took the veracity scarce Manafort to task for continuing to spew lies and sticking with his story, simply because he (Manafort)  says so”.

Manafort as a consultant fully competent to issuing the lie (on camera) without shame, has been established and credibly challenged. Why wouldn’t more Americans question his veracity regarding the release of a handwritten ledger showing his name associated with $12.7 million dollars while contracting in the Ukraine?

Last night Lawrence O’Donnell, sat with a person intimately involved in the recent Manafort revelation.

If you want far more detail, the New York Times piece is a good read.

Secret Ledger in Ukraine Lists Cash for Donald Trump’s Campaign Chief

KIEV, Ukraine — On a leafy side street off Independence Square in Kiev is an office used for years by Donald J. Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, when he consulted for Ukraine’s ruling political party. His furniture and personal items were still there as recently as May.
And Mr. Manafort’s presence remains elsewhere here in the capital, where government investigators examining secret records have found his name, as well as companies he sought business with, as they try to untangle a corrupt network they say was used to loot Ukrainian assets and influence elections during the administration of Mr. Manafort’s main client, former President Viktor F. Yanukovych.
Handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Mr. Manafort from Mr. Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012, according to Ukraine’s newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau. Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials.

Manafort responded.

 “The simplest answer is the truth. I am a campaign professional. It is well known that I do work in the United States and have done work on overseas campaigns as well… The suggestion that I accepted cash payments is unfounded, silly, and nonsensical.”

Manafort’s complete statement follows. Let’s first take a look at the common vernacular of “I am a professional…..” Do you recall the Denzel Washington’s movie, Man On Fire? Check this out. Yes, the professional means, do not hold me responsible for my evils, I was being paid and I did my job.

Manfort’s full statement

Yes, of course, Manafort is “a professional…”

Manafort works for Trump. Manafort has a history of working for a Ukrainian leader who literally fled his country to avoid capture and possible prosecution. Manafort appears to have been contracted by the government of the now illusive leader. Something smells awful fishy for the world traveling professional and his employment with that Trump campaign.  And, all the fishiness has the smell of the Russian leader at its core.

As far back as I can recall Donald Trump has espoused an affinity for Vladimir Putin as a “true leader” and a ideal model when compared to the US President. The erratic GOP leader has suggest allowing Putin to lead the charge against ISIS without any regard for Putin’s history of brutal repression. Trump seems to add lip service to the reality of Putin’s oppression of free speech (In Russia) and more than a few cases of suppression of journalistic integrity in reporting. Trump exhorts Putin’s INTEL agencies to hack into US data and Internet systems. Trump seems to ignore or fails to understand Putin has invaded parts of the Ukraine and currently holds a tight grip on Crimea.

After all of the aforementioned, think of the optics and the prospect of Trumps beloved daughter currently “vacationing; in Croatia.  Also factor-in he reality of his daughter being photographed with a person some are referring to as a Putin consort (to keep it clean).  

There is simply too much oozing into sleaze regarding Manafort and the Trump campaign to excuse as coincidence or circumstance. Trump is a flim-flam man. It is impossible to no consider as we move towards November 8, 2016.

Trump, The Polls, And Three Weeks Till Labor Day

In 2016 polling, GOP, Rience Priebus, The Polls, Trump, Trumpism, YOU GOP on August 15, 2016 at 11:42 AM

Trump actually continued to rail about “the polls’ as long as he faced other GOP hopefuls. He may have on occasion mentioned the polls as he moved away from the Primaries, but rest assured the “the polls” refrain has been scant from the lips of the New York City bloviator. 

Trump once stated he may leave the race should he start to slip in the polls. Of course, “leave the race” was carnival barking to drive sycophant supporters out to vote. But, there is the prospect the carnival barking Trump can not stomach that thought of losing the race in November. Time will tell, but you may have noticed Trumps’ offspring are not appearing on camera these days and you certainly haven’t heard the word “polls” from Trump’s mouth. 

The Five Thirty-Eight Blog posted a caution to all media about early exuberance and counter chagrin regarding the early polls. The message was, in essence, it is too early to consider 2015 polling relevant.
Let’s take a quick journey through the reasons for Trump’s aversion to “the polls.”  Our journey has to start with trump’s number one spokesperson incompetent: Katrina Pierson. 

“..forget the polls, Trump has huge crowds.” Well, yes he is a celebrity, and some of those in the audience may complete polls with expressions of no interest in a Trump vote

All national polling shows Clinton holding various percentage leads over Donald Trump. The polling data speaks volumes as to why Trump hasn;t uttered the words “the polls” for many weeks (maybe even months).  Trum[p in his inimitable way could help but rub “the poll’s in the faced of his 17 Gop primary candidates while failing to realize once, outside the GOP far right base, polling would swing moderately. The moderate swing took place the June party conventions and after the events that moderate swing trended towards double digit polling numbers across the nation.

Why do Republicans so often fail to realize braggadocio for a period could very well equal heartbreak during subsequent periods?  Sir Isaac Newton put it best.

It takes a small thinker who lacks any sense of ‘things to come’ to fall into the fact of reality and its pendulum swings. Trump certain bit into the proverbial apple, and no he can’t utter the words “the polls.”  But, never fail, all republicans can rest assured rightwing media and social media will come tot he rescue.  Breitbart dot com undertook a poll to refute all national polling showing their candidate trailing as if a chemtrail from a high flying jet.

Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow explained in a statement accompanying the survey that the site would launch its own series of polls to provide “an accurate assessment” of the 2016 race. 
“It’s an open secret that polls are often manipulated and spun to create momentum for a particular candidate or issue,” Marlow said. “Breitbart News Network’s first national poll marks the start of a major initiative to give our readers an accurate assessment on where the American people stand on the key topics and people of the day — without the mainstream media filter.”

Let’s do that last sentence again.

“Breitbart News Network’s first national poll marks the start of a major initiative to give our readers an accurate assessment on where the American people stand on the key topics and people of the day — without the mainstream media filter.”

Even Breitbart should have know better. 

The writers and  editors at Breitbart worked as if overheated Beavers to spin the survey results for a good showing from Trump, but the bottom-line effort to refute mainstream media (As Breitbart call3es it) polling data.  

Breitbart dot com excerpt:

Democratic nominee Hillary R. Clinton leads in a four-way contest with 42 percent of the vote, compared to Donald J. Trump with 37 percent, Libertarian Gary Johnson with 9 percent, and 3 percent for Green Party nominee Dr. Jill Stein, according to a Breitbart/Gravis national poll conducted Aug. 9 with 2,832 likely voters.

The remainder of the piece is linked here. If you decide to read the rest of the piece be prepared for a great deal of Breitbart spin. 

Rather than expend time sorting through various polls and posting graphics some find abhorrent, let’s defer to posting links with various perspectives on Trump Vs Hillary Clinton polling.

It should be noted Labor Days is a mere three weeks away. Is there a sane person who may read this who actually believes Trump will enact a turnaround in the next three weeks?

Trump Flim-Flam Talking Head Says: "Trickle-down" Worked

In ALi Velshi, Joe Borelli, Trump campaign, Trumpism on August 11, 2016 at 3:17 PM

When will the nation come to the reality of a Trump campaign operating in the “fake it to make it” mood?  Aren’t we intellectually adroit enough to discern a lie machine as it rolls slowly across the psyches of celebrity loving sycophants? Shouldn’t the discerning adult have an innate ability to recognize a modern day flim-flam man?

The answers to the question an obvious: “NO”.    

The ‘snow job” is compounded when Trump surrogates are allowed to draw ratings by broadcasting segments with over-the top talking heads. One such mouthpiece is Trump New York State captain chair.  While CNN gives the official many opportunistic to reach unsuspecting viewers, the network reached back for a fired employee as a rebuttal guest.  Ali Velshi seems to have found the network since Trump’s elitist economic speech.  we are fortunate he “found” the network because CNN is awash in Trump facilitators who can no more talk economics than they can effectively challenge Trump. 

Joe Borelli, Trump talking head, and obvious candidate for a White House postilion actually spoke about the success of Trickle-down economics. 

The Raw Story

Joe Borelli, the co-chair of Donald Trump’s New York campaign, asserted on Tuesday that “trickle-down economics” — a policy which experts say failed under President Ronald Reagan — had “actually worked.” 

After Trump revealed his tax plan, which is expected to largely benefit the wealthiest Americans, economic analyst Ali Velshi told CNN that the numbers did not add up. 

“The top income tax level in America is 39.6 percent,” Velshi explained on Tuesday. “To allow taxes to go down to a maximum of 25 percent and allow for Donald Trump’s [spending] increases is preposterous. If he doesn’t get anything else — he gets his expenditure increases and his tax decreases — we’ll have a budgetary hole of about $9 trillion extra.”

“And Donald Trump says we’ll take care of that with economic growth because people will pay less taxes, they’ll feel great about the economy, companies will employ people,” Velshi continued. “That is classic sort of trickle-down economics which actually hasn’t worked over the last 10 or 15 years.”

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trumpism Fizzling Into Shame

In GOP 2016, The Daily GOP Ignominious, Trumpism, Your GOP on August 11, 2016 at 1:28 PM

Twitchy dot com goes Trump……Capturing reality can be so very embarrassing regarding Trump’s past statements.

TIME Magazine over time (excuse the unavoidable pun)
Donald Trump loves it when he is on the cover of TIME magazine
(1/2) Time Magazine has me on the cover this week. David Von Drehle has written one of the best stories I have ever had.
…But probably not this time;

Another area of frequent Trump politicking is Hillary Clinton’s support for the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Remember, North American Free Trade. Question. Does trump produce items for retail consumption in Mexico? I believe he contracts Mexican workers to produce products sold in the United States.

Let’s take a look at how Now This handles Trump’s rhetoric.

At the risk of running on bit, I simply must include a couple of MSNBC segments aired last evening. If you are a progressive and a news geek, you probably saw and heard the segments, but I want to make certain non-news geeks have opportunity to take-in the segments. 

Words matter for presidents! Chris Hayes, ALL IN

Obama Founded ISIS? Cheis Hayes, ALL IN

The next set of segments have longer run times, but recall our credo “…time well spent feeds the highly informed voter.”  Lawrence O’Donnell, The Last Word. 

What is someone acts on Trump’s rhetoric?

Donald Trump is a farce. Yet, he pales when compared to considerations of Americans who have placed in a position to serve as the leader of the nation. It speaks volumes of the cesspool nature of large swaths of our populace and it speaks of a metastasized Republican Party. Trump could have easily declared to run as a Democrat. Alas, such a declaration would not serve to secure the support of US bigots, racists, rabid gun lovers and Obama haters: his prime support base.

The best way to assess character is to secure insight into the company a person keeps. 
An illustration of the point comes clear when an informed person compares the Democratic National Convention to the cesspool fear circus of the Republican National convention. 

We offer an image of our last point.

If you felt the GOP convention was a wholesome and worthwhile set of events, you must know by now you stand alone and opposite the vast majority of media experts and political pundits (even many conservative pundits).

We encourage you to witness the level to which your GOP vote will place a stamp on our nation, we encourage you to spend three minutes watching your run-of-the-mill Trump supporter. The video is ugly through and through. It depicts the very reason Donald Trump won the GOP nomination and transparentit exemplifies the roots of why each and every whtie supremacists and anti-Islamic bigot clings to the GOP.

If you can watch what follows and can not associate the behavior to what life was for milllions who quietly wathced and acquiesced as Adolf Hitler tookover Germany in the mid to late 1920s.

The New York Times deserves credit for the video and three of its reporters should receive a high-order of recognition for the work they accomplished.

Unfiltered Voices From Donald Trump’s Crowds

New York Times reporters have covered Donald J. Trump’s rallies for more than a year. His supporters at these events often express their views in angry and provocative ways. Here are some examples.

It seems the plug is coming unglued on the Trump campaigning and possible coming unglued on his retail empire.  One should consider if the Macy’s announcement and the New York Times video published was coincidental to the same day.

GOP Surrogacy Foretells Political Horror (Trump’s House)

In GOP 2016, GOP surrogacy, Rience Priebus, Trump, Trump's national spokesperson, Trumpism, Your GOP on August 3, 2016 at 9:15 PM

Yesterday we published a piece about the incompetent state of Donald Trump’s top national spokesperson. Katrina Pierson ineptly followed the obvious strategic response to Trump’s horrific attacks on a “gold star” family who’s son died in Iraq. The strategy, deflect any and all opportunities to answer questions about Trump’s disgusting attack with rhetoric about President Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Why do Trump and his circus show surrogates play us so cheaply? The answer is simple: the campaign is shallow and their candidate is void of substance. Moreover, Trump seems to have only employed a handful of qualified political campaign professionals; and he doesn’t listen to any advice or counsel from those hires. Competent political operatives would have developed a far more effective response to the political feces left by their out of control boss. Trump shallowness breeds public shallowness and embarrassing situations. Blaming Obama and Clinton is as shallow as a sidewalk tadpole pool.

The blame Obama and Clinton strategblew upup in the face of Pierson while responding to a battery of questions from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. Herewith is the piece published yesterday: When Trump Surrogate National. spokesperson drowns in that tadpole pool.

After the Wolf Blitzer segment, he returned from commercial break and immediately address the fallacy of Pierson’s remarks. Actually, Blitzer should have been adroit and informed enough to have performed an instant correction.  But, that would remind of a reach back to times when television news was actually delivered by journalists.  Without question, Blitzer received the correction via his production team and probably was ordered to offer the correction. Of course, you knew CNN wouldn’t allow Blitzer’s post commercial correction to pass.

Pierson’s need to speak about her incompetent statement, CNN’s thrill for “exposure news”, and the possible need for CNN’s management to address the issue after its previous airing, led to an on-camera segment this morning.

The video above leaves the message we wanted to impart via this piece.  We will remind you that Trump will take people such as Peirson into the Whtie House should he win the general election this fall. Incompetent from the top down is unacceptable such incomeptence in the White House is a nation killer.

When The Trump Surrogate (National Spokesperson) Is Incompetent

In . Trump national spokesperson, CNN, GOP 2016, RNC, Trump campaign, Trumpism, Wolf Blitzer, Your GOP on August 2, 2016 at 11:10 PM

American Hero
Humayun Khan (Soldier)

Capt. Humayun Khan, 27, died in 2004 after a vehicle packed with an improvised explosive device drove into the gate of his compound while he was inspecting soldiers on guard duty. New York Daily News
BornSeptember 9, 1976, United Arab Emirates
DiedJune 8, 2004, Baqubah, Iraq


You know the story of Mr. Khan and the story of his father and mo0ther since the Democratic Party Convention. We won’t spend minutes on video patriarch Khan’s initial convention speech and the many subsequent appearances on every cable network in America.  In some cases, he has appeared on multiple days with increasingly dire messages regarding Donald Trump. All video is readily locatable via a simple Google search.

The purpose of this piece is to highlight the utter ridiculousness of the Trump campaign. Well, you say we do that rather consistently of late. Of course, but today we are going to focus on the campaign’s flagship cable news talking head (predominate a CNN booking talking head): Katrina Pierson. We are focusing on Pierson because she seems to embody the most incompetent of all Trump campaign staff.  
Pierson’s background is that of a Texas Tea Party operative who obviously also has a reputation of “running her mouth.” She also has a background in the archives of the Texas criminal system for (1997). Shoplifting while accompanied by her young son. Thus, judgment was, and is not, a trait that we can comfortably assign to Pierson. Moreover, her penchant for literally spewing random inane and incoherent statements shines another light on Trump’s chief national spokesperson.

As a spokesperson person fails miserably.  Granted, Pierson operates well within the campaigns and the GOP behind the scenes strategies in working to recover every verbal ball Trump dumps on his supporters. Yet, she often also fails to fully understand the intricacies and nuances imbued in  (daily) “circle the wagons around Trump” strategies. Example.  It is obvious to any who follows news or current events must now know the GOP/RNC and Trump campaign had decided to respond to any questions about the Khan family with deflective remarks about President Obama and his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Strategy is strategy and it is critical to any political campaign. We should wonder why the campaign would advance a motor-mouth campaign spokesperson who doesn’t understand the deep basis for the strategy? 

If the strategy is to blame Obama and Clinton for the Kahn family death while serving our nation, failing to loop timing into the strategy is only possible via the less competent of surrogates. Pierson is certainly a less competent national campaign spokesperson.

On CNN’s The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer seemed to question Pierson into a confused knot and yes, her incompetence and a lack of knowledge failed in closing the surrogate loop. She flat out stated the Obama’s and Hillary Clinton “rules of engagement” changes led to the death of Captain Khan. Problem? Well, watch the segment and then I will share the problem if you do not already recognize her inept surrogacy.\

“But surely you can understand the confusion, considering how Donald Trump never voted for the Iraq War, Hillary Clinton did,” Pierson said. “Then she didn’t support the troops to have what they need. It was under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton that changed the rules of engagements that probably cost his life! So I don’t understand why it’s so hard to understand why Donald Trump was confused.”
There is a very obvious problem with this, of course: Khan was killed by a car bomb all the way back in 2004. During that time, Clinton was a senator for New York and Obama wasn’t even a senator yet.

The brief bio at the top of this pages lists Captain Khan death as having taken place in 2004.  If you are into there yet, I ask you to think about when Senator Barack Obama won election as the nation’s 44th President and when  he appointed Hillary Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State.  Does the year 2008 and 2009 come to mind?


The Unfit Trump And His Rabid Supporters

In GOP 2016, Hateful Trump supporters, Trumpism, Your GOP on August 2, 2016 at 11:27 AM

Do you really believe Donald Trump has any of what it takes to serve as President of the United States of America?

If you are inclined to think,”Hell, yes” or if you are thinking, “He could serve as he has served as a business man.” or if you are inclined to respond in a manner common to any Veteran, “fuckin eh,”  you have issues.  

Are you aware?

Donald Trump:
… doesn’t know one key factor about US national defense: our nuclear triad. 
… has stated he knows more about ISIS then our military generals. (well, he may have access to info, from Vladimir Putin). 
…dispatched a son to start his post-RNC convention campaign to Mississippi with support from issues related to the Confederate Flag.  Donald Jr. and the Confrederate flag
… is now Internet battling with the family of a military officer killed in action in Iraq. 
… publicly exhorted Russian cyber intel operatives to work at hacking into data systems associated with the US govt (and a presidential candidate). 
… was unaware that Russia’s Putin  has invaded and absconded Crimea from Ukraine.  
The list grows on a daily basis. 

Earlier today, President Obama used a very public platform to state his contempt for Donald Trump as a prospective presidential candidate.

Watch this and judge for yourself if Donald has something serious to hide.
Would any person who aspires to lead our armed forces ever lower themselves to an insane fight with parents of soldiers killed in service to America?  The answer is obvious, but take a look at how Trump’s divisive and disrespectful comments affect those who have sacrificed most.  A mother falls victim to exercising their First Amendment free speech rights and receives a heckling from a Trump crowd. 

Another Gold Star mother spoke plainly and in a very straightforward manner.

We are what we think
What we think we may very well speak.  
When we speak we are exposed to our inner core. Of course, I am speaking from a perspective of humans with an inner core. Watch as you hear the GOP presidential candidate speak (obviously) without any inner core of decency.

Trump’s mental processes and subsequent behavior is serving as fodder for Clinton and liberal PAC advertisements.  While, I am not one to spend lots of time on silly negative ads, I pay close attention when ads are derived from the actual words of a candidate’s opponent. 

Let’s take a look at how the Clinton PACs and campaigns are playing off of Trump’s more disgusting remarks.

If you think the ads are a bit on the testy side, take a read of a Crooks & Liars piece regarding an incident from on early morning event.  A ten-year-old child yelled “lock-up the Bitch.” during a frequent Trump sycophant yelping opportunity.  Yes, Trump supporters are a rabid bunch. A ten-year-old had to have been taught and coached  or coaxed to use such language.  Is there any wonder these people love Trump?

10-Year Old Child Yells ‘Take That Bitch Down’ At Trump Rally

At Donald Trump’s rally in Ashburn, Virginia today, things happened that I would never imagine happening during a general election. He booted a baby, accepted someone’s purple heart, and then this happened: A little kid is yelling “Take the bitch down!” when Trump mentions Hillary Clinton. A little kid. No more than 10, I would say.…
