You did see video of him supporting Hillary, in all 2nd Grade subtitle action, like he was speaking to complete morons. Right? Doesn't do a press conference because...he might be asked questions.

Yep. Obama slipped up by repeating a common, insensitive joke but apologized shortly afterwards. In contrast, Trump lied rather than admit his mistake. He also physically imitated a specific individual, so his attack was extremely personal and visceral. Trump took things to an entirely different level and then tried to worm his way out of it. He has no class whatsoever.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread: come for the anger, stay for the Hüsker Dü

In USA Today they are doing a trash piece on Trump saying he stiffed a lot of people in disputes over work done. Reminds me of a local guy here I used to know when I had my limousine service years ago. This guy had a ton of money that he first got by marrying it. Then he would complain about absolutely everything until he got a discount. The picture in my yellow pages ad is blurry give me discount. The car is 1" too short give me discount. He would go out looking for stuff to complain about just to get a discount. I guess Trump was like that too.

Reminds me of an ethnic joke. Do not read if you are easily offended.

Did you hear about the dilemma the Jewish cat burglar was in? He didn't know whether to try and get it wholesale or steal it.

Judging from the above, that's sounds closer to the truth.

Well, yes, I do. I can weather the storm you are brewing. I don't know why this is a hard concept. I don't think anything in this debate is to "benefit the poor". I'm speaking more of the consumerist middle class that assumes goods and services will remain priced low. They will not in the short term doing what Trump and Sanders want to do.

Not directed at you, per se, but can we PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE not have posts that point out every new "trend", especially when many of them might simply be sampling error?

In truth, Clinton has never trailed Trump:

I'll delete. Geez, sorry.

I recall the Trumpkins rejoicing over the WaPo poll a couple weeks ago which showed Trump leading. Anyway, I just posted an article headline.

Hey, I apologize if I came on too strong. It's just that there are dozens of polls, some which are conducted several times a week. So if everyone cherry-picks a single poll that "proves" their candidate is winning, that's practically all that would get posted around here.

A life lesson for all of us:

How to read the election polls — and keep your sanity — in two easy steps

This leads to the first lesson: ignore the individual polls and follow polling averages, such as those at Pollster or Real Clear Politics, as smart observers increasingly do. Polling averages cancel out much of the sampling and other survey errors to measuring the actual opinions of Americans.

Put all this together, and you have the second lesson: You can’t predict future trends from recent shifts in the polls. The fact that polling averages are a random walk means that we cannot know what will happen next.

I don't cherry pick polls. I cherry pick FOX polls.

I don't need to cherry pick polls. I am pretty confident of the outcome of this election.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread: come for the anger, stay for the Hüsker Dü

So what happens when you give a corrupt whore money?

How Clinton Donor Got on Sensitive Intelligence Board
Newly released State Department emails help reveal how a major Clinton Foundation donor was placed on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board even though he had no obvious experience in the field, a decision that appeared to baffle the department's professional staff.

The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to "protect the name" of the Secretary, "stall" the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later.

Copies of dozens of internal emails were provided to ABC News by the conservative political group Citizens United, which obtained them under the Freedom of Information Act after more the two years of litigation with the government.

A prolific fundraiser for Democratic candidates and contributor to the Clinton Foundation, who later traveled with Bill Clinton on a trip to Africa, Rajiv K. Fernando's only known qualification for a seat on the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB) was his technological know-how. The Chicago securities trader, who specialized in electronic investing, sat alongside an august collection of nuclear scientists, former cabinet secretaries and members of Congress to advise Hillary Clinton on the use of tactical nuclear weapons and on other crucial arms control issues.

"We had no idea who he was," one board member told ABC News.

Fernando's lack of any known background in nuclear security caught the attention of several board members, and when ABC News first contacted the State Department in August 2011 seeking a copy of his resume, the emails show that confusion ensued among the career government officials who work with the advisory panel.

"I have spoken to [State Department official and ISAB Executive Director Richard Hartman] privately, and it appears there is much more to this story that we're unaware of," wrote Jamie Mannina, the press aide who fielded the ABC News request. "We must protect the Secretary's and Under Secretary's name, as well as the integrity of the Board. I think it's important to get down to the bottom of this before there's any response.

"As you can see from the attached, it's natural to ask how he got onto the board when compared to the rest of the esteemed list of members," Mannina wrote, referring to an attachment that was not included in the recent document release.
More at the link. This will probably help the middle class. I hope so because I got mine, and screw the poor people. Universal healthcare would hurt the poor. But corruption, that's leadership.

Okay, let's defend this now because Hillary is what we deserve. I'll start. She said the money didn't influence her, so this is all crap.

Okay, everyone else go. You can start by ripping on this.

"The true answer is simply that S[ecretary of State] staff (Cheryl Mills) added him," wrote Wade Boese, who was Chief of Staff for the Office of the Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, in an email to Mannina, the press aide. "Raj was not on the list sent to S[oS]; he was added at their insistence."


wait, this PROVES everything was above board.

"Mr. Fernando chose to resign from the Board earlier this month citing additional time needed to devote to his business," it reads, noting that membership on the board was required to be "fairly balanced in terms of the points of view represented and the functions to be performed by the advisory committee."

"As President and CEO of Chopper Trading, Mr. Fernando brought a unique perspective to ISAB. He has years of experience in the private sector in implementing sophisticated risk management tools, information technology and international finance," the statement says.

The statement was emailed to ABC News two days after Fernando's resignation and four days after the initial ABC News inquiry.
So Hillary did corrupt whore stuff, was caught, no one could explain it using logic and reason, and he resigns two days after because business. I know, you believe that. It's still funny to me.

I think we all know the real reason Hillary put this guy on the board. 9/11!!!

Kind of like making a friend an ambassador? Where's the outrage! What the FUCK does Caroline Kennedy know about Japan and being an ambassador? Obama is a crook.

I think his point was that if a FOX poll shows Trump trailing, then he's really trailing.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread: come for the anger, stay for the Hüsker Dü

I knew not everyone could see it. It's a pretty distant connection, right? Could just be anything. Certainly not connected to getting money from the guy.

I know, I'm like a vegan constantly telling you that you are animal murders.

I'll laugh just as much if she is ever president. I'll laugh harder when she is indicted. At that time, I expect apologies, a few tears of sorrow, and I'll be really disappointed if I don't hear Sanders is to blame somehow. He's been to blame for her shitty ratings so far. That evil bastard.

He obviously wants Donald Trump, the paragon of integrity, to be President.
