Latest Poll Numbers Prove to be an Absolute Nightmare for Republican Party

donald-trump-idiotI’m really happy that I’m not a Republican nowadays. To have Donald Trump as a presidential candidate is bad enough, but to have him as the overwhelming favorite to win your party’s nomination is just flat-out embarrassing. While he’s extremely popular with many conservatives (mostly those on the far-right), the world is quite literally laughing at the GOP for having this clown as the face of their party.

Heck, even many of the Republicans I know are ashamed that he’s become as popular as he has.

As I’ve pointed out before, the Republican party is in a no-win situation when it comes to Trump. Their only real hope is that he ultimately ends up screwing himself over because it doesn’t appear that he’s in any danger of losing his momentum.

And as some of the latest poll numbers prove, his popularity only continues to surge.

According to the newest Public Policy Polling numbers, Trump’s dominance in New Hampshire has exploded to 35 percent – which is 24 points greater than his nearest rival, Ohio Governor John Kasich. In an even more ominous sign for the GOP, the hand-picked favorite by the RNC, Jeb Bush, came in fourth with only 7 percent support.

But the news gets even worse for the GOP as it isn’t just in New Hampshire where Trump’s overwhelming dominance grew. A Monmouth University poll showed that in South Carolina, Trump is currently doubling up his nearest competition with support from 30 percent of poll respondents. Meanwhile, Ben Carson came in second (15 percent) and Bush came in third with a paltry 9 percent.

This is about as bad as it gets for the GOP. Not only is Trump continuing to massively overshadow every single other candidate in the crowded Republican field, but the candidate the RNC wants to win the nomination is sinking further and further into obscurity.

To be fair, Bush’s fall from grace has just as much to do with his own idiocy as it does Trump’s continued surge. Almost every time Jeb opens his mouth, he only seems to make things worse for himself. That’s not good when many conservatives really didn’t want to support him in the first place. He was basically just 2016’s version of Mitt Romney, the “most electable” person they could find to run in a field of candidates that was certainly going to be filled with far-right radicals who would get crushed in a general election.

How will this all ultimately turn out? My guess continues to be that eventually, Donald Trump is going to self-destruct. One of these days he’s going to push things a bit too far and it’s going to torpedo his campaign. Meanwhile, Bush will probably prove to be “2016’s Mitt Romney” and win the GOP nomination because he’ll be the “most electable” candidate Republicans can find.

Until that happens, I will fully admit I’m absolutely enjoying watching Trump turn the Republican party upside down.

    It proves the moral decline of the US, this is a sad comment on our society.

    • OMGface

      A nitemare. I think, it also reflects living in post literate America. Last time I checked, we are TWENTY EIGHTH in literacy!!!!!

      Simpleton Trump actually believes some CEO mentality is part of our checks and balances system government! Why nobody is addressing this, just makes my head explode. AGAIN.

  • Beth Conrad

    I think this proves that when Republicans talk about widening their tent to be more inclusive of minorities, it’s all talk. They’re happier with the white only vote and using voter suppression to win elections.

    • OMGface

      Did U know today DAVID DUKE ENDORSED HIM??? How many times can yr head explode in one week? Now, in ONE DAY!!!!

      • Eg Kbbs

        AAARGH. It was bad enough when I saw an article that Trent Lott endorsed him (and at the time I thought that there are certain people with a big enough ethical cloud over their head that you don’t want them to publically endorse you).

        But DUKE ?????

      • OMGface

        Right? We are all hallucinating.

      • J Smith

        Oh dear….I do recall a time when a very prominent racist, what was his name? Oh yeah….Reverend Jeremiah Wright endorsed Mr. Obama…as well as racially charged Al Sharpton, Rev. Jesse Jackson…and the grandest racist Muslim of all to endorse Mr. O during his campaign was Mr. Louis Farrakhan. Yes, the demon himself who just called on the black community to kill white people. Yeah….these guys not only endorsed Obama, they campaigned with him and were regular guests not only at the Obama’s Chicago home, but the WH as well.
        If my choice is a silly unofficial Duke ‘endorsement’ rumor…or Wright, Sharpton, Jackson, & Farrakhan regular guests and advisers to our commander in chief. I will definitely take the rumor.

      • OMGface

        You can waste even more lifeminutes than you do in yr desperate need to flee from, reinvent differential truth……it will never be anything but exactly that.

      • OMGface

        Anyone with the IQ of a raisin would have gotten he had to dissociate himself……U get that, right? Focus on the part that matters, it was no arbitrary.

      • J Smith

        Which part matters….what YOU say & no one else….how about Rev Wright endorsing Obama? Sharton’s & Jackson’s endorsements….they were all accepted by O. Progressives really need to stop trying to erase & re-write history! You voted in a Racist bigot who was endorsed by other well-known Racist bigots, FACT.

      • OMGface

        YOUR terminal sickness precludes chasing/coming to own objective truth. You are, therefore persona non grata.

        Nice try tho. You’ll get it…election day 😉

      • OMGface

        I predicted here long ago he would start to crash and burn after the 17th of Sept. I was right. You need therapy to earn some self awareness to preclude yr wasting more lifeminutes being self hating malleable fodder and silly putty. I also recommend getting an education.

      • J Smith

        Well…since you brought it up, being a woman I have proudly earned an advanced degree after winning a full ride scholarship…one of two actually, and went on to graduate top of class, 4.0….commencement speaker as well. Quite funny it was from a well known liberal university! Now I raise my four children that I wanted and prayed for, teach statistics, as well as work part-time in research & analysis.

        Anyway, back to point, I hope dear that you are ready to Eat your words: “crash and burn after the 17th” Please, low-informed sore losers do not become American women these days.

        There are so many more, and Huff Post provides an average of 30 polls, all of which Mr. Trump leads…feel free to check them out individually.
        Also, the Zogby poll of which I have previously referenced.

        And a bonus for your watching pleasure:

        Your prediction is without merit. Donald Trump wins……again


      • OMGface

        All good. We are, unimaginably, 28th among advanced nations in literacy. It’s head exploding.

      • OMGface

        As always, what matters is OBJECTIVE TRUTH. Something precious your pathology will always preclude you form the privilege of.

      • J Smith

        Pray tell….Rev Wright did not endorse Socialist Obama? Or was it race baiting Sharpton…he didn’t endorse Obama? BLM loving Rev Jackson didn’t endorse Obama? Wait…Michelle never said “Now, I am proud to be an American”…?
        Did Obama accept those loving endorsements? Were these racist “Ministers of God” invited to the WH numerous times for lunch, etc. (on the tax payer’s dime, mind you)….but you insist that never happened.
        What about Rev. Louis Farrakhan calling out for 10,000 blacks to kill any and all white people they come across….A documented fact that Farrakhan is close friends with the Obama’s, has lunched with them, and endorsement O as well. But you live in perpetual denial, so obviously that Truth doesn’t exist either.

        And with Rev Farrakhan’s very public endorsement (and active encouragement) of Blacks to slaughter Whites (especially Law Enforcement)….where is his good friend Obama?

        Where is our president who was supposed to be “The Great Uniter”…was he off playing golf perhaps? (Once again on tax-payer’s dime)….or hosting questionable celebrities @WH?….or off on a Alaskan vacation renaming mountains and taking selfies?
        Any Q&A with Obama about white police officers being slaughtered by black folk? Any public presser at all?
        What about those four hostages left in Iran after the salacious nuclear “deal”? How do you think their families feel about Obama? Oh, but you say there is no truth there either? Those captured and tortured hostages don’t exist?
        Oh, and just so much more…info right at your fingertips. But you have to open your eyes to see the truth. Get beyond the liberal brainwashing, I did. Get right with reality….snap out of it. It’s never too late to learn the truth…..
        However, if it is indeed too late for you, please know wholeheartedly that you are not changing anyone’s opinions of anything. The truth will out….all the rest is, well, BS.

      • OMGface

        You will waste whatever life minutes U have left suck in this poverty driven sickness which feeds yr underlying sickness/self hatred. When his craven enemies called FDR a Socialist…..he found it hugely amusing. No more time to waste on your unalloyed pathology.

      • J Smith

        Lol!! Not even a denial this time 😉 Don’t get your panties in a bunch, hun. It’s just politics; however, I prefer the truth. Tomato, Tomahto.

      • OMGface

        As per edited version of Jack Nicholson…..You…..are in no way equipped to own the truth. Nothing more tragic/poverty defining and truncating than that.

  • GimmeSomeTruth

    Randle Patrick McMurphy became very popular in his milieu, so popular, that if he would’ve ran for the Presidency of the USA, he would’ve won. Don’t ever underestimate lunacy..

  • MacDoodle

    This guy scares liberals to death.

    • Jillz

      Try “amuses” liberals to death!

      • Right, as the Dem frontrunner has the FBI doing a colo-rectal screening on her daily.

      • Jillz

        *grabs the red herring*

        The right is like the little boy who cried wolf.

        Tell ya what, when even ONE of the faux scandals about her is PROVEN (not “felt” but proven) to be true, you may have a point. Until then, I will continue to be amused at the fear Republicans have about her as well.

        And of course, the Donald will continue to amuse liberals.

      • Jillz, she can’t answer questions about her server that was wiped and scrubbed. She refuses when pressed by Ed Henry. Her spokesperson wouldn’t answer them either. Not who wiped it, when, or on whose orders. This morning State Dept spokesman John Kirby was asked live on Morning Joe if her private server was ever authorized by anyone at State, and he cited “ongoing investigation” as to why he couldn’t answer that. He couldn’t answer any of Mika’s questions. “ongoing investigation’ sounds to me like this could easily be a criminal investigation and that Hillary is the target. If it was nothing, go grab the server and the classified emails and go home, it’d be over by now. It’s not. With the FBI, longer time before results is not a good thing. Never is.

      • OMGface

        Tempest in a tea pot. you and your imbecilic, toxic flailing ilk are history. Look within if u can find the gonads.

      • Yeah, tell that to President Obama. You, know, that guy that the DOJ and FBI report to. See, that tempest in a teapot is being investigated by them. And you know they don’t do tempest in teapots, right? You know that, amirite, Face?

        Watch the news tonight. She gave Top Secret classified information to her lawyer in that thumbdrive, and to a fly in the wall server company, neither of which had security clearance, a very serious violation and one that Democratic president Barack H. Obama takes very, very seriously. Ask David Petraeus about that.

        Tempest, indeed.


      • OMGface

        Your desperation is pitiable. Doomed resistance work…..also, compulsive.

      • Will take that very seriously considering your bombardment of this thread with no one responding to you, like an idiot talking to himself.


      • Jillz

        But he’s correct. The right IS becoming desperate as they fall apart at the seams. It’s funny to watch all the different extreme factions ripping each other apart within the party. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of fellows!

      • Desperate is the Democratic front-runner panicking by cutting her vacation short as her poll numbers continue to crater and going out to Iowa to do a small gathering speech with a John Deere tractor behind her on a lit stage so that she could provide very lawyerly talking points about her private server and email controversy.

        Now she’s admitting she made a mistake and saying she should’ve separated her personal and government email. Not 100% sure, but guessing that’s because she knows there will be government-related email the FBI will find on the server she had wiped clean and scrubbed, adn she now wants to blunt the next headlines that will show she lied about that server containing only ‘strictly private emails’, and she can say it was an honest mistake given all that many emails.

      • Jillz

        Did you type that with a straight face? bahahahahaha! You point toward alleged corruption by Democrats when Republican “law makers” are being charged and / or investigated for corruption left, right and center? Rick Perry, a current Presidential candidate IS under indictment and you’re still trying to point the finger at the left?

        The Republicans have WASTED billions of your tax dollars on their witch hunts and every single time they have been proven wrong. How many more of your tax dollars are you willing to let the “fiscally conservative” party waste before you start looking at them for what they really are?

      • Rick Perry is on the bottom of just about every poll for the Republican nomination and his aides are leaving him. He’ll probably be the first person to drop out. If you want to talk about the dumb indictment from a revengeful attorney, go ahead and be my guest.

        Hillary hid information about her personal server from every Benghazi committee, rendering all their findings and conclusions moot. Hillary chose to use a private server. She admits her error. She alone is to blame here. If she wants to call it a witch hunt for her dumb followers to believe, then she has to claim then that the FBI is going along with that witch hunt, because the FBI doesn’t take orders from the Republican party.

      • Jillz

        I just find it a little odd that HRC is getting raked over the coals for email practices that had already been established by her predecessors, while the Republicans are running a candidate under indictment for corruption (and it’s no surprise that you feel corruption by a governor is not a big deal).

      • You find it odd because you take no time to understand it all, Jillz. You come here for your information, that’s why. Allen tells you there is nothing to this and it’s all a big witch hunt. You ignore the FBI isn’t a part of the Republican party. You ignore that Perry isn’t going anywhere, and even if he was, the charges against him are completely bogus and part of a revenge against him by another prosecutor.

        If it’s nothing, why are you butthurt that she’s getting raked over the coals? Makes no sense.

      • Jillz

        I’m not “butthurt” at all over this. It’s just another in a long line of hypocrisy and false outrage perpetuated by Republicans. I will take any opportunity to oppose the lies of the right because it makes me sick. Republicans should NEVER be allowed near the Presidency – they have proven who they work for (and it ain’t “we the people”) and they are dangerous not just to America, but to the world.

        I ignore? I acknowledged, actually. You are ignoring my responses where I said I know the FBI (and DOJ) are not part of the Republican party, and the part about where I said it is the Republicans pushing the scandal (so the DOJ and FBI have to be involved). As for Perry, it doesn’t matter how he’s doing – the point is that he IS a Republican candidate and he IS under indictment. While this is the case, Republicans have weak arms flying their false flags (i.e. they are hypocrites) about any of their manufactured “scandals” including the HRC email “scandal”.

        ‘Nuff of this. Thinking people will wait until all the FACTS are in before passing judgement (or starting a hypocritical witch hunt). You go ahead and keep spreading your feelings as facts in the meantime though.

      • Jillz, the latest Quinnipiac poll shows her tanking, Even worse, when asked one word to describe Hillary, the one word most often used by voters was “Liar”. Second most “Dishonest”. Third most

        The point is, it ain’t just me who thinks that about her.

      • Jillz

        The fact that she is unpopular in a poll doesn’t make her guilty of a crime (re: the fake email scandal). As I said, you can “feel” all you want – but don’t confuse your “feelings” with facts.

      • She’s tanking in a poll because people don’t believe her excuses for the email server issues. The fact that she’s lying and giving cute lawyerly responses doesn’t prove she’s guilty, it’s just a very positive marker of someone who is guilty and has a lot to hide.

      • Jillz

        That’s funny. John Kirby told CNN that, “her use of a private email address and server was not against policy in effect at the time she was Secretary of State.”

        It’s also already been shown that former SoS’s also followed similar or same email habits.

        And how about Trey Goudy’s staff handling classified email on an unclassified system.

        Rice? Gingrich? Why no issues with their email habits?

        Same old, same old – it’s ok if you’re a Republican, right? In any case, if a crime has been committed, it will be uncovered by the right’s witch hunt against her. Until then, it’s just more another faux scandal by Republicans. You should really try to look past the smoke and mirrors to find out what it is they are trying to distract you from.

      • The FBI and DOJ aren’t Republican, Jillz. They report to President Obama. They don’t do witch hunts against his orders or wishes. Bookmark that, ok?

        Not against any formal State Department policy at the exact time she started, but he can’t say that they authorized it because of the ongoing investigation. Draw your own conclusions as to what that means. If there was no policy against it, or nothing wrong that she did, then why can’t that question be answered?

        There is little similar to what former SoS’s did and there is one huge difference that is at the center of this controversy, and that is that no former SoS and no Cabinet Head ever used a private server exclusively for both government and private email.

        I would be in favor of any investigation Democrats want to explore or conduct into anyone’s classified email. Go ahead and write your Congressperson and demand that.

      • Jillz

        Republicans are leading the witch hunt over something that they, themselves have done (and probably still do). They have to use the DOJ and FBI, but it’s still a Republican driven witch hunt.

      • First word out of respondent’s mouth when asked for one word to describe Hillary Clinton……“LIAR”.

        Read it and weep, Jillz

        Q poll: Trump numbers soar, Hillary continues slide


        Next after that……’Untrustworthy’.

      • Jillz

        LOL Believe me, this doesn’t make me weep. Polls are nothing more than opinions. Given the amount of misinformation and spin put out by the right, it’s not surprising that some people polled are buying it. Hey, I myself don’t see her as overly trustworthy but she is certainly no more of a liar than any other politician (with the exception perhaps, of Bernie Sanders).

        I see HRC as being more conservative than liberal and I understand why people are mistrusting her. She is a better choice than any Republican candidate though, and a little less dangerous.

        None of it changes the fact that this email “scandal” is no more of a scandal than any of the other fake scandals Republicans have been wasting your tax payers’ money on.

      • No, Jillz, no Cabinet head has ever chosen to use a private server for his or her exclusive use of email. That allowed her to do what she did and made a mockery out of the Freedom of Information Act, an act Democrats fought long and hard to put into law. She’s on record as laughing about never wanting to use email when people could see what was in it. She’s on record as having bought a book that dealt with wiping emails clean and how to scrub them. The excuse of wanting one email device was a bogus one from the very first day. It was always about being able to control what the public saw, or what a Congressional investigation might see. And whether or not you think all polticians do that, no on so far has tried what she tried to do to shield herself from FOIA requests, Congressional oversight, and subpoenas in order to obtain public property, emails that pertained to government business by her as SoS that are owned by the public, not her.

      • Jillz

        Hm. Then how do you explain gwb43 DOT com (used by White House officials) and the millions of emails that were destroyed (and therefore unavailable for investigation when requested)?

      • I think there was no excuse for that and if Nancy Pelosi had decided to look into it I wouldn’t have blamed her. As it is, she didn’t see the opportunity in it, and decided not to pursue it. That has no bearing on Hillary now, though. It’s just liberals crying and deflecting.

      • Jillz

        Oh, so you admit that the email practices had been established by her predecessors. It was pursued, btw, but millions of emails had already been conveniently destroyed.

        As an aside, tell me – are you also out there trying to convince people that those vile Planned Parenthood videos were not edited to create false perceptions (because that’s another conservative lie that was debunked once and for all today).

      • No, I didn’t admit it. And the whole very liberal “Oh, so you admit…..” thing is so dishonest and disingenuous. Why do you guys consider that a staple of your debate strategy all the time?

        Do you think GWB had them purged because he was worried about an indictment? Do you think Nancy Pelosi did? Do you want to go back and re-litigate it?

      • Jillz

        LOL Yes, you did admit it – you acknowledged it happened. You can split hairs, but that IS admitting it.

      • I admit that they deleted emails by mistake, but I didn’t admit that the practices Hillary used were used by Bush or his employees. Because they weren’t, nor were they under the same guidelines. And it certainly didn’t give Hillary free rein to to what she wanted and it doesn’t excuse what she did because “Bush did it, too”.

      • Jillz

        By mistake? *rolls eyes* Please.

        So they get a pass because you believe they deleted those emails “by mistake”, but HRC, mistakenly uses a private server (and I believe she didn’t realize it was an issue) and has since provided all the emails to investigators (which of course Bush et al were unable to do because of their “mistake”), but somehow SHE is the criminal.

        It’s not saying “Bush did it too” as a justification for HRC intentionally breaking the rules or the law, (though I’m pretty sure Bush and Cheney did it to cover up all the State Attorney firings). Just saying it’s pretty hypocritical holding individuals to different standards based on their party affiliation. Especially when you are supporting a corrupt and dangerous party like the Republicans.

      • Here’s corrupt, Jillz. Corruption defined….

        Bill Clinton Sought State Department OK For Paid Speeches Related to North Korea, Congo, New E-mails Show

        ABC News

        Jonathan Karl

        Aug. 28, 2015

        ABC News has obtained State Department e-mails that shed light on Bill Clinton’s lucrative speaking engagements and show he and the Clinton Foundation tried to get approval for invitations related to two of the most repressive countries in the world — North Korea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

        While Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of State, Bill Clinton earned speaking fees around the globe totaling more than $48 million — speeches that had to be vetted by the State Department to ensure there were no conflicts of interest with his wife’s work as America’s top diplomat. These newly revealed emails show speech requests that the State Department refused to approve.

        The emails — which have come to light because of a public records request by the conservative group Citizens United, which sued the State Department to get the documents — show just how far Bill Clinton was willing to go to earn those lucrative fees — seeking approval for appearances with ties to two of the most brutal countries in the world.

        “WJC wants know what state thinks of it if he took it 100% for the foundation,” Desai wrote using Clinton’s initials. “We’d welcome your thoughts.”

      • Jillz

        I don’t need corruption defined – thanks anyway. The Republican party has demonstrated it clearly enough, time and time again.

        ETA The “corruption” you posted above, pales in comparison to gwb43 DOT com and you know it.

      • Not like this in a presidential candidate, I’m afraid.

      • Jillz

        Two Words: Scott. Walker. Far more corrupt, and his corruption is verifiably destroying his state. How about you on the right clean up your own house before pointing the broom at the neighbours you don’t like.

      • Doesn’t work that way. Walker nowhere near the same situation as Hillary Clinton. Doesn’t have the FBI asking for a server he wiped clean and scrubbed, either.

        Your only defense you can muster for Hillary is to point the finger elsewhere. Who teaches you to do that, Allen Clifton?

        “What about Bush???”

        “Look, over there.”


        “OMG, IOIYAR!!”

        Liberals who put out the liberal talking points don’t want you to think or investigate or learn objectively, they want you to parrot dumb deflections. And you oblige, Jillz.


      • Jillz

        omg You’re something else. You’re damn right the Walker corruption is different: he’s turning Wisconsin into Kansas. He is actually hurting his state and his constituents. Directly and ruthlessly. It is no mistake.

        Christie is also different. If there had been a state emergency or a need for people to evacuate, thousands of American citizens could have died for Christie’s hissy fit. That wasn’t a mistake either.

        And apparently you don’t think it’s a big deal that Perry threatened the job of a public official for doing her job – investigating him. Nothing to see here, right folks?

        All three of these losers are current Republican candidates, and all three of them are dangerously corrupt.

        But wait!! Look over here!! Hillary has an email account we didn’t know about!

        I don’t recognize or acknowledge your ridiculous closing assertion so you’ll have to ask someone else, “why”. If it’s a serious question, I suggest you get in touch with someone at FOX – they are the ones being dumbly parroted across the country.

      • And who said they got a pass? Go back and read about it.

        Oh gimme a break! We all know it’s ok if you’re a Republican. It got some coverage, but no major scandal (which it should have been) unlike this bs witch hunt against HRC being blown completely out of proportion and exploited by the right.

      • Jillz, Democrats controlled the House in 2006-2008. They could’ve done what they wanted to do. They could’ve used this to make up for what they thought was Bush’s fault for the Iraq War that they voted for and decided not to attempt to impeach Bush over. But Nancy Pelosi didn’t. It wasn’t nobility. It wasn’t anything other than they decided it wasn’t worth pursuing. Benghazi was worth pursuing. Republicans knew from the first weekend the public was being lied to about the excuse that it was an stupid internet video that caused a spontaneous uprising. When people know they’re being lied to, they wonder why. And they look into it. Hillary has been lying since. Blame her for this. Even Democrats acknowledge almost to a person that she’s handled the whole scandal all wrong. And she has. Blaming Republicans for her screw-ups is immature, weak, unserious and intellectually dishonest. Yet you choose to be that way. Fine by me.

      • Jillz

        She may have handled the ‘scandal’ wrong, but there shouldn’t BE a scandal. That’s the point. How about we talk about the scandal in New Jersey where a current Republican Presidential candidate used his authority to shut down a bridge, inconveniencing thousands of constituents? Now THAT’s an honest to God scandal!

        I am not blaming Republicans for her screw-ups. You saying it again still doesn’t make that true. I’m blaming Republicans for being so divisive, for wasting tax-payers money investigating their manufactured scandals, and all while they do as much or even worse themselves. Wake up.

      • Christie did the first day what Hillary has yet to do, he spent two hours answering every reporter at length who had a question.

        If there’s no scandal, why is it that Hillary simply cannot appear before the press right now? She said she would be, but she’s only done it for two minutes, last week, stumbled badly, then had one of her aides quickly whisk her away when Ed Henry pressed her as to if she wiped the server clean, when was it wiped, and on whose authority was it wiped. She can’t answer that because of the investigation. She ignores Ed Henry on the campaign trail now. She can’t talk to reporters and has none……NONE, Jillz, scheduled. Compare and contrast to Jeb, Trump and Carly and every other of the 17 Rep candidates who can’t get enough airtime in front of reporters.

        No scandal? Fine, why don’t you call for just one Hillary press conference to put this thing to bed once and for all?

        You won’t do that. You won’t take a stand.

      • Jillz

        “Fine, why don’t you call for just one Hillary press conference to put this thing to bed once and for all?”

        Good lord! Because I don’t have to. It’s being investigated by the DOJ and the FBI and I am more than happy to wait for the FACTS before slandering someone’s reputation with my feelings and opinion. You act like the tactics of the right have no impact on this – as if HRC should come out and speak to a media that has been hounding her, while the investigation is happening.

        You can operate based on your opinions if you want. I will wait for the results of the investigation.

        Sending hugs and cannollis with gratitude for yr intact clarity, differential smarts,integrity. By contract, here, that amalgam—one I used to consider normal— is especially precious. xxoo

    • OMGface

      PATHOLOGY usually does, forget, a species this obvious, unalloyed and shameless.

      • First words out of folks’ mouths when asked to describe Hillary……


        Not good, face. Not good at all.

      • OMGface

        Chill and stay tuned…..either she or Joe will be our next president.

      • People don’t vote for people they think are liars.

      • OMGface

        I couldn’t care less about “they.” I chase data ongoing and form my own conclusions.

      • OMGface

        You are being entirely simplistic. I find that scary.

      • You claimed you chase data ongoing and form your own conclusions. I provided data for you and you find it scary. 60% of Americans find her to be dishonest and untrustworthy. And they place those two characteristics at the top of the list for how they choose a presidential candidate.

        You really don’t analyse date, you merely choose data that confirms your biases.

      • OMGface

        You are seeing none of this in perspective, either historical or current.. This is a very early and brief moment in a very long and complex chronology impacted by many things. And, if you actually trust the feckless simpleton Trump, you are truly hopeless.

      • Trust him for what? I know and trust that he will make Hillary cry and wilt in 3 debates if he goes up against her one-on-one, Face.

      • OMGface

        Nobody on either side of the isle would vote for him. He’s doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in Hel$. Get this: MIGHT via a low IQ blowhard simpleton DOES NOT MAKE RIGHT or earn respect in anyone half intact. Talk about polls, every single one reflects this and all will continue to. MANY cowards defend against their deficiencies by being bullies. If you don’t get that, I strongly suggest you revgisit your own feelings of helplessness. I also recommend you get beyond action hero franchise merda. tho did luv Mission Impossible 5, Rogue Nation. lol Cept for the water vortex/underwater scene where I hadda cover my eyes.

      • Ok with you posting from the bar at Happy Hour, face, just make sure you call Uber to get home, please.

      • OMGface

        See this, boys and girls? While I gave the benefit of the doubt for as long as I could, this being is perfect fodder for the feckless boor. And, I do mean perfect.

      • J Smith

        Jim, it’s great! The truth will out…simply, she is indeed a liar. She has done this to herself. And the lying does not stop at the email disaster…..
        Her numbers reflect this….they are not good….for her…great for us!!

      • Astonishingly, though, per Iowa poll yesterday, Hillary supporters claim to be unconcerned and think her email problems are no big deal. It amazes me how people think the FBI works for the GOP.

    • Jim Valley

      Your comment takes me back to the days when people like you told us we were “terrified” of Sarah Palin. And where is she now?

      • Where she is now has no correlation to the fact you were terrified then. In fact, you said it was McCain’s age that concerned you most, because the thought of a Palin presidency terrified you.

        Dumb post from you.

      • Jim Valley

        “Where she is now has no correlation to the fact you were terrified then”
        We weren’t “terrified”. You are mistaking withering scorn and disdain for fear. Where she is now is nowhere, just as we predicted.

        “you said it was McCain’s age that concerned you most,”
        I never said this.

        “Dumb post from you.”
        And the very same right back atcha!

      • An overwhelming majority of liberals said that McCain was too old and were terrified of Sarah Palin becoming president. Liberals were terrified by their own admittance. That is fact.

      • Jim Valley

        How stupid this is. Yes, the prospect of a Palin presidency (or even vice-presidency) was horrifying to any American who cares about their country. So yes, I suppose you could say that we were “afraid” that she would be given power, with disastrous results. (You could use the same “logic” to say that decent people are “afraid” of a Trump presidency because of the damage it would do to America.) Fortunately for the nation and the world, Palin soon subsided into a well-deserved obscurity with her trashy family and her word salads and her millions of rube dollars.

      • You admit you were terrified of her. Before you said you weren’t.

        Which is it?

  • E.j. Turner

    I wish a reporter would ask Trump who campaign slogan is “Make America Great Again” when does he think America was last great? The Bush/Cheney years? Back in the Jim Crow or slavery days?

    • J Smith

      Meanwhile the jokers on the left….Michelle Obama: “For the first time in my adult lifetime I am proud of my country.”

      • E.j. Turner

        Well I am with Michelle on that one. It was my first time being proud of America. As a white person you wouldn’t understand.

      • J Smith

        Yep…as a woman with mixed heritage I am not allowed to be a minority too? Keep feeding into the BLM crappola…keep feeding it.
        Wasn’t Obama supposed to be the “Great Uniter”? If he succeeded why all the racial tension now??
        Obama, Michelle, Rev Wright, Farrakhan, Sharpton, Jackson, Jarret…all your racist demagogues… where have they gotten you now?
        They have managed to take America back pre-1960’s MLK would be ashamed at what they have done…just ask his kin…they ALL agree.
        (do yourself a favor, look up Jessie Turner & listen to him for awhile)

  • J Smith

    Please do try to remember all of this ‘Trump said this and insulted that’ nonsense is reminiscent of BHO’s insults and atrocities….Rev. Jeremiah Wright (Go*dam America)….Small business owners: “You didn’t build that…”

    Abortion/babies: “If my daughter got pregnant I wouldn’t want her stuck with that mistake”

    Unconstitutional mandated health insurance:”You can keep your doctors & current plans” “You will save avg $2500 annually”

    Slandering opponents & using their weaknesses against them:
    “Mccain isn’t fit for presidency, he can’t type or email” (All of Mccain’s fingers were broken and damaged as POW & BHO publicly ridiculed him & used that against him)

    BHO insults stay at home moms: “Sometimes, usually mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result. And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”

    Mandated public school lunches: Fail
    Constant rhetoric against Christianity.

    The blatant affront for our military: purposely not lowering the flag to honor our troops who were murdered by a terrorist in TN
    Public disrespect for our flag & allegience to our country.
    A constant disregard for the good of the people in favor for what is good for him…as evidenced by the use of his pen for executive orders rather than abiding by the law. A constant snub of the checks and balances put in place by the forefathers of our Constitution.
    The contempt he has for our right to bear arms, and right to free speech; a loathing for our Bill of Rights in general.
    His multi-trillion $$ debt that he has now shouldered onto every youth in America.
    Omg…the list goes one. These are direct quotes from the man himself.

    So when you get on your high horse about ‘Trump is this, Trump is that’ ‘Trump said this, Trump said that’
    BHO has had many insulting things to say….but even worse, he has done many insulting things to our country.

    The greatest difference between Trump & BHO is that Trump is honest.
