Donald continues to rage out of control.
Thankfully, old angry white people are a shrinking part of the population.
"When Paul Ryan ran as Romney's running mate 4 years ago...bet you disliked them both."
[I dislike all politicians who want to give tax breaks to the rich by cutting benefits to the middle class and the average working stiff. This is why any Republican running as a populist is such a joke.]
"NY Times and Washington Post have been discredited for fabricating stories on Trump."
[Says who? Trump? ]
" it should be no surprise he pays no attention to the law and other basic social norms.”
Trump's success in business proves otherwise.
[Trump's success in business???
He started with money.
He's declared bankruptcy multiple times and in every case he stuck his creditors and investors with the losses while enriching himself in an unethical and likely illegal manner.
He has refused to pay hundreds of vendors and subcontractors.
He has associated often with the mob and organized crime figures.
He has been involved in 3500 lawsuits as he tries to screw every other person he does business with.
He thinks laws are for other people.
He is an immoral and not very smart businessman. If you call this success, then you don't know what success is. And the idea that his success in business is going to trickle down to the poor and middle class is beyond stupid.]
"Other than the ongoing Trump U. case no one in his business dealings has emerged
indicating any culpability whatsoever."
[That's like saying that except for the one murder, Mr. Jones has led an exemplary life. Screwing people is screwing people. Those ethics don't go away when you move on to the next scam. Ethics stay forever. Or more correctly I should say the complete lack of ethics.]
Condoleezza Rice 'not interested' in being Trump's vice president.
[No surprise there. ]
Donald Trump's short list for potential running mates has been leaked, and the list contains a group of losers that would only hurt Republicans in November.
[Wait, what about Sarah Palin and Carly Fiorina??? ]
What I’m sure of is a convention like none before it. Many of the sorts of congressional staffers who are typically eager to pitch in will travel to Cleveland only at the insistence of their bosses and under duress. “It is going to resemble a funeral for a relative everyone hates,” one Capitol Hill veteran told me.
The Republicans’ Big Hot Mess by the NYTimes
“My concern is that he lacks respect for basic norms,” said Robert Smith, a former associate judge on the New York court of appeals who was appointed by ex-governor George Pataki, a Republican. “He’s a totally irresponsible egomaniac, and it should be no surprise he pays no attention to the law and other basic social norms.”
From bringing back waterboarding to temporarily banning Muslims, legal professionals says Donald Trump ‘pays no attention to the law’
Donald, there are a lot more people than Jeb plotting against you.
All my Native American friends laugh when white people talk about immigrants. They would be happy with deportation of all the immigrants (i.e. white people including the pinhead conservatives who don't seem to know that they are immigrants.)
-- The chairman of the House Energy and Commerce committee, Fred Upton, said that Trump has “gone off the track.” The Michigan congressman said he has no plans to endorse Trump “or anyone in this race.” “I’m going to stay in my lane,” he said during a radio interview, according to The Detroit News.
-- Richard Armitage, who served as George W. Bush's Deputy Secretary of State, announced he will vote for Clinton. “[Trump] does not appear to be a Republican, he doesn’t appear to want to learn about issues,” he told Politico. “So, I’m going to vote for Mrs. Clinton.”
-- Charles Krauthammer says Trump how shown over the past month that he cannot and will not change. “It’s no accident that Trump’s poll numbers are sliding,” he writes in his column today. Michael Gerson, meanwhile, decries Trump’s flawed character in his column and argues that it is a far worse problem than the first-time candidate's lack of self-discipline.
-- Several more companies have announced this week that they are steering clear of the Republican convention in Cleveland: Wells Fargo, UPS, Motorola, JPMorgan Chase, Ford, and Walgreens Boots Alliance all said they will not be participating despite years of previous support -- joining Coca-Cola, Microsoft and a host of others refusing to join in Trump’s coronation.
-- Even Trump’s core supporters are angry with him. Several allies publicly rebuked him yesterday for trying to prevent suspected terrorists from being able to buy guns. Jeff Sessions, Trump's point man on the Hill, declared that congressional Republicans should not take cues from The Donald on the subject. “We’re a co-equal branch of government,” the Alabama senator said.
In 1987 Kudlow was rehired by Bear Stearns as its chief economist and senior managing director. He was fired in 1994 after abuse of cocaine caused him to skip an important client presentation. Kudlow later admitted to a $10,000 a month cocaine habit.
Yeah, I definitely want to get my economic advice from a cokehead.
If the transaction didn’t win approval by June 11, the fund, WL Ross Holding, would have had to be liquidated and the $500 million returned to investors.
Special purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, have two years to invest their money — or liquidate.
In addition to the embarrassment and the financial hit, having to liquidate the fund for failing to invest the money would have meant that Ross, 78, could find it much tougher to raise money in the future.
“It would have some effect” on future fundraising, Ross told The Post.
The liquidation of WL Ross Holdings would have also marked the fourth straight misfire for Ross.
Of Ross’ last three funds — $1.15 billion raised in 2005, $4 billion in 2007 and $2.2 billion in 2012 — two have failed to return Ross a profit.
The third, the 2012 venture, has just barely returned a profit for Ross, sources said.
Ross, who has shown a great interest in energy patch investments, has, ironically, been burned by such deals.
For example, his 2010 investment in Exco Resources has not exactly produced a gusher. He purchased its shares when they were trading at about $19 a share. They closed Tuesday at $1.09.
[So apparently famed investor Wilbur Ross is on a losing streak.]
"Famed investor Wilbur Ross recently told CNBC that “Trump represents a more radical new approach to government that the nation’s economy desperately needs.” He’s right. "
[One can hardly call "making it up as you go based on no experience" a prudent approach although, yes, it's radical and new. Also stupid. Trump has no sensible plan. Everything he has put forth has been panned by the great majority of economists and government officials regardless of party affiliation.
Just because something is radical and new doesn't mean it will work. I'm okay with those qualifiers: radical, new, unproven, reckless, dangerous and stupid.]
on the stock alerts - you know who they are.
Totally and completely unethical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DALLAS - A nationwide fundraising tour doesn't seem to be improving the relationship between Donald Trump and members of the Republican Party leadership.
