Trump belittles Harry Reid’s injury, gets deserved response

Let’s end this already. Stop supporting this toxic person.

Imagine, for a second, if a foreign politician said and did the things Trump has said and done, we’d be laughing our heads off at that country, when we’re not condemning it. That’s exactly what people in other countries are doing, laughing at America and with good reason, those that are still capable of laughing through the horror and tears wept for the meanness of Trump and his supporters.:

“It’s frightening. Our politics, because of him, is descending to the level of a third-world country. There’s just nothing beneath him. And I don’t know why we would think he would change if he became president. That’s what’s really scary.”
Donald Trump’s anything-goes campaign set’s an alarming political precedent

 The September 15 Texas Lyceum Poll of “likely voters” has Trump leading Clinton 42% to 36%. However, in the same poll, when looking at ALL registered voters, Clinton leads Trump 39% to 35%!

All these public officials coming out of the woodwork with their ignorant racist remarks and swiftly finding that the only person allowed to be racist in America is Donald Trump. It’s a little funny.

There have always been racist and bigoted people, in the US, in the whole world. Many know that it’s wrong and work very hard to overcome it in themselves. Others, less hard. One of the problems with Trump’s presidential candidacy, with his remarks about and attitudes towards Mexicans, Muslims, latinos, black people, Native Americans is that many people now think that it’s okay to be racist and bigoted again, and openly.

A month ago, Maine Governor Paul LePage made international news for his racist and obscene remarks (1), prompting calls for his resignation which I hope have not yet quietened. More recently, Kathy Miller, Republican campaign chair of Mahoning, Ohio claimed that there was no racism until Obama got elected, among other ignorant and racist remarks (2); she promptly resigned when her comments were reported. Then yesterday, North Carolina congressman Robert Pittenger claimed in an interview that black people hate white people “because white people are successful and they’re not” (3), drawing swift criticism and condemnation. Pittenger apologised soon after but not without backpedallinging and blaming others. Hopefully there will be consequences too for his ignorant bigotry.

That’s just in ONE week. Unfortunately his supporters continue to dismiss these FACTS, most of which we have on tape/video, as just liberal media trying to pull him down. Yes, liberal media is trying to pull him down because Trump needs to be pulled down. This was unacceptable at the start and is unacceptable now, 12 months later and will be unacceptable four years from now.:

Is it too much to hope that Trump takes both Christie and Giuliani down with him?

“The genius of Donald Trump is to make sure he follows the law … and politically he has said he is going to change these laws,” Christie said.

Yes, he has said he will lower taxes for the wealthy.

Oh how can he not get the irony?

Harder, Melania Trump’s lawyer, says: “I’m an advocate of responsible free press, but when people choose to tell lies about others, they’re exposing themselves. Sometimes when people lie and lie, they become emboldened that they can get away with anything, and then they tell bigger and bigger lies …”

No, I’m sure he sleeps well at night.:

The media has had their fun, played for effect, sold their papers. Time now to get serious.

The list is long of newspapers and magazines endorsing Clinton, including:
-Dallas Morning News
-Dallas Voice
-Corpus Christi Caller Times
-El Paso Times

Also big names:
-New York Times
-Los Angeles Times
-Rolling Stone

Guarantee more to come in the coming days.:

“Because you’d be in jail.” This was the most terrifying moment for me. I’m glad someone at the Times picked up on it. I hope others did too.

Talking like the dictator that he wants to be, Trump has no understanding or respect for the rule of law. He believes he is above the law. He promises to make sure his political opponent goes to jail if he wins. If I were in charge of the law, he says, you’d be in jail. And then the people applauded. So grab the torches, assemble the mob, it’s the end of the 1800s again, when people were lynched and America was great.:

Down, down, down! Here’s to Trump dragging the whole disgusting mess down with him.

Even Trump’s campaign manager admits she “knew of GOP lawmakers who forced themselves on young women and were hypocrites for shunning Trump.” Well, what else are they supposed to say, Kerryanne, they find Trump’s behaviour towards women noble? And what kind of response is that anyway, when your boss comments about grabbing women by their genitals, to say his friends do it too?

But this is my favourite line: “To one half of his own party, Ryan will forever be the man who betrayed Trump. To the other half, he will forever be the man who stood aside while Trump wrecked the place.”

Goodnight.:
