    So F&Bacon and dorkman, deal with this:

    In the last two days, the following stories have been publicized:

    1) Trump fired his campaign body-man Corey Lewandowski.

    2) Trump doesn’t have any money. His available campaign cash has dwindled to $2.4 million, compared with Hillary Clinton’s comfortable $30 million. Oh, and by the way, here’s documentation of some of Trump’s campaign spending. Tell me again how he’s not totally corrupt.

    3) After blurting that the Orlando shooter was “born in Afghan,” we learned that Trump allegedly read the wrong speech in his (cough) teleprompter. Oops.

    4) What the hell is this all about?

    5) On Monday, Trump said it’d be a “beautiful, beautiful sight” if clubgoers exchanged crossfire with Omar Mateen. (Trump didn’t appear to know that one of the bouncers, a former law enforcement officer, fired at the shooter.) Then, on Tuesday, Trump tweeted that he never said clubgoers should’ve shot back — only employees or guards. Uh-huh.

    “It’s too bad some of the people killed over the weekend didn’t have guns attached to their hips, where bullets could have thrown in the opposite direction,” Trump said on Howie Carr’s conservative syndicated radio show the day after the shootings. “Had people been able to fire back, it would have been a much different outcome.”

    In Atlanta:

    “If the bullets were going in the other direction, aimed at this guy who was just in open target practice, you would have had a situation, folks, which would have been horrible but nothing like the carnage that we all, as a people, suffered this weekend,” Trump said then.

    In Dallas:

    “If some of those wonderful people had guns strapped right here — right to their waist or right to their ankle — and one of the people in that room happened to have it and goes, ‘Boom, boom,’ you know, that would have been a beautiful sight, folks,” Trump said at a rally in Dallas Friday night.

    And in Houston:

    “If we had people with bullets going the opposite direction right smack between the eyes of this maniac — if some of those wonderful people had guns strapped right here, right to their waist or right to their ankle, and this son of a bitch comes out and starts shooting — and one of the people in that room happened to have it and goes ‘boom, boom,’ you know what, that would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight, folks. That would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight.”

    6) If all that’s not awful enough, Trump also tweeted the following on Tuesday:

    I am “the king of debt.”That has been great for me as a businessman, but is bad for the country. I made a fortune off of debt, will fix U.S.

    The “king of debt?” Is this seriously supposed to be positive self-endorsement, that he made a fortune off defrauding creditors?

    Let’s go over this last one again. For the last eight years, the Republican Party has been screeching about the national debt — because on January 20, 2009 it suddenly became important when, before that date, no one really talked about it. Meanwhile, President Obama and the congressional Democrats have successfully reduced the budget deficit (not the same as the debt, Republicans) by more than a trillion dollars, which happens to be a record.

    Stripped of the ability to bitch about “tax and spend” Democrats, the GOP pivoted over to the national debt and blamed its growth exclusively on the Obama administration, even though, as we all know based on Congressional Budget Office studies, the national debt is higher than ever due to the following policies: the Iraq War, the Afghanistan War, Medicare Part-D, and the economic repercussions of the Great Recession. In other words, the bulk of the national debt is based on the accumulated spending of the congressional Republicans and the Bush administration.

    Nevertheless, one of the GOP’s top shelf gripes about the Obama Democrats is the national debt. So, in order to mitigate the problem, they’ve nominated a candidate who business endeavors have resulted in numerous bankruptcies. As if that’s not counter-intuitive enough, Trump is boasting that he’s “the king of debt.” The King of Debt.

    Making matters even worse, Trump had previously vowed to defraud U.S. bond owners by negotiating the equivalent of 50-cents-on-the-dollar in order to resolve the debt crisis, effectively hurling the world economy into complete and utter chaos.

    Again, the debt thing is just one in a long list of Trump disasters, and we’re only covering events from a few days. He’s out of money; he’s clueless about what happened in Orlando; his campaign staff is in disarray; he boasted that he’s The King of Debt; and he feels “like a supermodel,” because why not?

    And American voters are so utterly brainwashed and clueless that Trump is only trailing Hillary Clinton by a few percentage points, according to the latest CNN poll. Look, I don’t care whether you despise Hillary Clinton because she’s a woman or because [insert conspiracy theory here], she’s lightyears more qualified than this clown-haired Lord Fauntleroy. One thing’s for sure: any Republican who continues to bitch about the national debt is going to get a Twitter-feed full of “King of Debt” references. From me, and, hopefully, thousands of others.

    Oh, and one more thing.

    7) This might be a problem:

    A woman filed a federal lawsuit in New York on Monday alleging that presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump raped her in 1994 before threatening to harm her and her family if she talked, the Gothamist reported.

    Good luck making America great again with this loser.

    The Trump campaign has moved from dumpster fire to landfill fire.

    It’s virtually impossible to keep up, but just today:

    • He launched into an attack on Hillary Clinton’s religious faith. Classy! Perhaps Donald received a revelation while reading “Two Corinthians”. LOL.
    • There’s a still developing and extraordinarily weird story coming from Trump’s latest FEC filing. In essence, his campaign has been making payments to an ad agency, (that doesn’t seem to actually exist nor do any, you know, advertising) named after the fictional ad agency from Mad Man, and based out of a suburban home in New Hampshire. I mean, what? LOL. http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2016/06/21/trump_pays_30k_to_draper_sterling_what_is_xeno_technology.html

    Best line of the campaign so far from Hillary regarding Trump: all of his books on business “seem to end on Chapter 11”.

    #20986

    It’s incredible that with all his negatives and lack of political experience, he’s polling at 40%.

    Yes, it is incredible that there are that many stupid people who vote.

    “There’s a sucker born every minute”

    Over the a period of 40 years, thats about 21 million, not accounting for increased birth rate since the statment was made in the 1860s. 🙂

    Stupid people that vote:

    a.k.a. The Tea Party a.k.a. the base of the GOP.

    They’re perfectly fine with a serial lying racist, bigoted, ignorant, thin-skinned, blustering bully.

    Trump’s their kind of “Christian”. Right, Pope Bacon?

    #20991

    I don’t accept your premise.

    And you conveniently ignored the fact that Trump has an opponent who the base and some Democrats see in the same or worse light.

    There’s much about Trump I don’t like, but I’m not voting for a best friend. I’m voting for someone who will appoint good Supreme Court Justices and someone who believes in running the government efficiently.

    Democrats have more than their fair share of stupid voters who Hillary needs to win.

    “It’s incredible that with all his negatives and lack of political experience, he’s polling at 40%.”

    He’s not anymore. He’s slipped a few more points in today’s polls.

    donald will continue to garner the 23%’rs but his share of GOP votes aside from that is what is shrinking daily. As I said in another post, come November it is likely he will only get about 8 to 11 percent of them, so he will lose in a landslide with only 31 to 34 percent of the popular vote and an electoral vote, if he’s lucky, of about 150.

    The GOP is likely to lose their Senate majority and their House majority will be whittled down to the short hairs. After all, the courts threw out Republican-drawn congressional maps in Florida, North Carolina and Virginia on grounds of partisan and racial gerrymandering plus there are a dozen more House Republicans retiring or running for other office this year than Democrats, 30 to 18. Of those, according to the Cook Political Report’s ratings, 10 GOP seats are vulnerable to Democratic takeover. So the Democratic Party might not have quite the down ballot landslide that Clinton will get and may fall short of the hat trick, but for the stupid party it’s going to be hell. I love it.

    Of course you don’t accept that premise. You’re one of them.
