Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

Was that guy an aide?

I wonder if Trump fired the guy. No matter how high up, that guy should have been fired as soon as the confrontation came to anyone's attention.

Edit: Nope. Looks like he was just a typical idiot Trump supporter. The polite woman was the aide. Right?

So you're saying this aide is now the mouth of Trump.

Let's wait until Trump is Prez and has this guy as WH Spokesman.

Trump is a fool and would be an embarrassment to this country as POTUS
This dog and pony show will end soon but not before he makes a complete fool of himself.
Numbers mean shit. His numbers are made of those who love reality TV drama. Some may even believe that is what's going on.

That's how I feel. But my pessimistic view is that this is the new normal. And we have to face it that an overwhelming majority of people might just be this stupid.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

Trump's having the time of his life. He's putting on the best show of his career. When the applause dies down and the attention dwindles, when the numbers go down and he starts losing primaries, he'll get tired of it all. Just as everyone clamoring for him right now will get tired of him. Right now there's a vacuum in the presidential race and he just happens to fill it.

One can only hope (a little prayer might help) that neither Trump nor Hillary gets the nomination.

If it came down to those 2 I'd have to vote for the one with bad hair and a penis.

That would be an automatic win for whatever Dem gets the nomination, as Trump will run independently and split the GOP vote.

You're going to have to be more specific.

No, that was the whole joke.

It's also from 1992, I think.

The Daily Stormer, one of the more popular Neo Nazi news sites, just endorsed Trump. And of course they did!

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

When is the deadline to run?

I think Biden/Warren would be decent and win a second term, too.

Hillary could win 2016 but she might get stuck with a bunch of scandals and not win a second term so I feel like I have to be rooting for someone else to get the Dem nomination.

Trump will almost certainly not get his party's nomination. Clinton almost certainly will get her party's nomination, however.

No idea. Personally I find he is a far worse option than Trump. Although they are both , I think Carson is far more so.

It's very telling. I get that from his perspective, there's a war on fetuses (or, as I'm sure he would frame it, babies). But to phrase it the way he did, he is defining women as the thing that surrounds a fetus. Utterly tone deaf.

No shit. They are things that surround a vagina. Everyone knows that.

It's like he is one of those guys you hear about busted for treating his female co-workers like shit.
