    OMG, considering the donald has no political experience previous to his now doomed presidential bid, he has amassed an impressive list of scandals involving money, sex, racism, bigotry, etc. Clearly some of these will have a very serious effect on voter preference. Having a track record of not paying people and not honoring contracts with labor are going to hurt him big in the states where these aggressions occurred.

    Whenever there’s a discussion about religion someone is sure to come up with a ready-made post along the lies of “500 Horrible Things the Catholic Church Has Done.” What is one supposed to do with that? Who has the time to go through the list and refute them?

    Likewise with post.

    I did check a couple of them out and they seem more like speeding tickets than scandals. Some are very old, and mostly they seem to be accusations that haven’t been proven.

    If you really want to nail him to the wall it would be more effective to pick out two or three of the most egregious alleged offenses along with offering some credible proof. Otherwise this looks like throwing a lot of stuff against the wall hoping something will stick.

    Meanwhile, Trump continues to rise in the polls and if this stuff mattered, besides the fact that he’s a novice and supposedly a “buffoon,” it wouldn’t be close.

    Even if all this were true, I would still vote for him however, since he would still be of better character than his opponent.

    You mean like felony fraud charges?

    “Even if all this were true, I would still vote for him however, since he would still be of better character than his opponent.’

    I would like to see something that supports this statement. I’m not aware that TD has any “character” whatsoever.

    TD is coming out in support of Roger Ailes today, but I suppose it’s not surprising that a philandering misogynist would have the back of a fellow philanderer.

    Roger Ailes: Donald Trump Defends Fox News Founder After Gretchen Carlson Files Sexual Assault Lawsuit
    “Some of the women that are complaining, I know how much he’s helped them … It’s very sad. Because he’s a very good person,” Trump told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. Ailes resigned last week.

    More on the new fraud charges. The Associated Press reports that Donald Trump allegedly donated $35,000 to Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s 2012 gubernatorial campaign after then-Texas Attorney General Abbott dropped the state’s case against Trump University.

    The Trump University debacle just took another nasty turn for the GOP candidate for president and a new report shows that Trump resorted to bribing politicians in order get away with scamming American.

    Florida’s Republican Attorney General, also once considered joining a multi-state suit against Trump’s organization. But just three days after Bondi’s spokesperson publicly said they were reviewing the case, the Donald J. Trump Foundation dropped $25,000 into Bondi’s campaign Super PAC for her re-election and Bondi said she wouldn’t pursue the matter due to lack of evidence.

    And Trump himself also admitted earlier last year as he was getting his presidential campaign started that large donations like these mean he can get a politician to do anything he wants.

    What a laugh riot (not dork or F&Bacon although their input around here is so lame it could be considered sick humor) but it appears that there is a chance that Donald might be the one that gets indicted mid campaign.

    “If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific”.

    -Donald J Trump
    People Magazine, 1998
