Can't you postpone the presidential election for one year, run all the other 1.000+ elections set for November 8 and keep Obama in office for 2017 (by a special law)? Then you'll have the time to do a re-run of the entire election season and come up with somebody other than Mr. T? '
Don't make a drinking game out of it or you probably won't remember any of the debate tomorrow.
Just think, after this election is over, the GOP will be remembered for having nominated a reality TV star throughout all history.
Alternatively they'll be remembered for nominating the candidate with the most votes, which is generally considered a good thing in a democracy. The GOP should be criticized for their role in getting society into a position where a Trump nomination was possible, but to blame them for nominating Trump is to dislike democracy.
AXELROD: Um, yeah, on that point, you once said, "I assume there are bad actors in society. Its inherent politicians would be disingenuous. I assume monkeys are going to throw sh--. I get angry with people who don't go 'bad monkey' or...STEWART: Wait, I said that?AXELROD: ...create a distraction that allows it to be continued unabated." How responsible is the media for Donald Trump?STEWART: Oh, I don't -- Look, listen. I don't necessarily believe that a full court press on his untruthinness would necessarily change it. I mean, he's not -- he was voted for, but I do think he is, generally, the conclusion to years of -- he makes sense if you view it through the prism of talk radio. I like to drive, and so I listen to talk radio and it is 24/7 of 'your country is being taken away from you.' As far as I can tell, the conservative side on the right side, they feel an ownership over America. They are the stewards of America. They are its forbearers...AXELROD: Was it (inaudible)?STEWART: Exactly. Republicans, conservatives, love America. They just hate like 50 percent of the people living in it. So, in general...AXELROD: Isn't part of their concern that that 50 percent is becoming, or whatever percent, is becoming a greater -- we're becoming a much more diverse country?STEWART: Sure. So yeah, no nativism -- look, this is -- it's not as though this is inherent only to this country as well. Globalization has created this strange pushback throughout the entire world. You see a lot of countries retreating into nativism...AXELROD: Mm-hmm.STEWART: ...into that type of really...AXELROD: Like there are Trump-like characters all over Europe and different country.STEWART: Yes. Yes. It's very similar to -- I don't know if you ever saw "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" -- very similar. But no, in some ways it's a natural reaction to fear. Now, if you have that fear stoked on a daily basis, at an incredibly high pitch -- and this is not -- We really need to do something about this country; we're facing some difficult problems. This is you are run by a tyrant; he is going to take away your rights. We are falling. There are rapists and murders at the border coming to kill you. If that's what you've been fed and that's what you're buying into, Donald Trump makes more sense than anybody else out there because he's going, "Great, let's build -- the Visigoths are out the gate. Let's build a f---ing wall and not let it..." It makes total sense. What wouldn't make sense are the general republican leadership going, "There are Visigoths at the wall, they are here to kill you, let's try and not pass a new budget resolution." You know that's...AXELROD: Yeah.STEWART: Their rhetoric has never matched their action. Donald Trump is saying, "Oh, that's your rhetoric? Then yeah...AXELROD: Although, you know, there is...STEWART: ...let's build a wall."
Well folks, you heard it from the man himself; Donald Trump admitted that he used and abused loopholes to avoid paying his fair share: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/10/us/politics/donald-trump-taxes.html?action=click&contentCollection=Politics&module=RelatedCoverage®ion=EndOfArticle&pgtype=articleAnd people are still going to vote for him?
of course they will. His supporters will just go: see how smart he is, he is just the guy we need because he knows what is wrong with our tax code and can fix it. Trump could stomp a baby to death and they would spin it into something positive. "overpopulation, and trump is just the man to do something about it. he is willing to make the hard choices" or some other bs
Oh yeah I actually forgot about that, as unbelievable as it is. I saw a poll that said along the lines that only 8% of his voters thought less of him after the whole grab them by the pussy thing and 2% actually thought more of him. I wish i could find it again.So atm the only thing that matters is what the undecided think, weather or not all this will make them turn away from the idea of voting for him because its pretty sure that his voters are loyal to the death.
Haha, even Putin couldn't take it: http://www.newyorker.com/humor/borowitz-report/putin-cancels-campaign-event-with-trumpPriceless!
Just as a note, Borowitz is a humor writer for the New Yorker.
You seem to just have a hate on for the gop
