Daily Trump Dump 01/26/16

THE BIG NEWS: After 24 hours of twitter bombs and speculation, Trump announced he’s skipping Thursday’s Fox News debate (“definitely not participating”). Allegedly, this is all about Megyn Kelly

“Let’s see how much money FOX is going to make on the debate without me,” he told reporters in Marshalltown, Iowa

Kudos to Fox News for not folding

Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes said in a statement that Kelly is locked in as a moderator for the Thursday night clash.

“Megyn Kelly is an excellent journalist and the entire network stands behind her — she will absolutely be on the debate stage on Thursday night,” he said

Contrast that with the RNC, which punted The National Review as a debate sponsor after Trump whined about them last week. It should be said that he could change his mind and enter stage right as the conquering hero on Thursday, but that would mean that Trump is an attention whore and we know that’s not true

I imagine that a Trump-free debate would be similar to the rare afternoon that stay-at-home moms get when the grandparents take the kids to the park and poor mom gets a chance to drink some wine tea, eat some shortbread cookies and do adult stuff before the little hellions come home, wreck the house, and make her cry as she wonders why she ever thought reproducing would be a good idea

You know, Coack K, I don’t think ESPN has been very fair to you or Duke University. I think you should boycott the next game they’re televising

Well, it’s worth a shot

On The Brad & Britt Podcast , I’ve been speculating for a while now that Trump’s endgame is to damage the Fox News brand among wackos hardcore conservatives and then, when he isn’t elected president, start the Trump News Network (because he has to pee all over put his name on everything). I’ve seen a lot of conservatives killing FNC on social media for their “unfair” treatment of their hero. Many of them have said that CNN has given him a fairer shake than Fox

Imagine him putting his daughter (who he definitely wants to bang) on the Trump News Network head-to-head with Megyn Kelly and then doing everything including having her do the show naked in order to beat Megyn. I can just see those tweets, trumpeting the huge ratings victories that Ivanka rolls out night-after-night. Obviously, Ann Coulter would have a show. His other kids and the wife would have shows. You think this couldn’t happen? IT’S GONNA BE YOOGE! WE’RE GONNA BE SO GREAT AT NEWS, IT’LL MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN!

Two big endorsements today: AZ Sheriff Jor Arpaio and Liberty University president Jerry Falwell, Jr. The latter could help with those tricky evangelicals, which Politico tells me are loving them some Trump. I don’t know how or why. Down is up. Up is down. Red is blue. Blue is red

Remember, the only divorced person ever to hold the office of President of the United States was Ronald Wilson Reagan and he was only divorced once. By the way, Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) poked at Trump’s past marital troubles

Hey, Mr. Dealmaker: Isn’t marriage the ultimate negotiation?

As befits an evangelical champion, Trump took to twitter to go after an Iowa religious leader

Boy, he lit this guy up

But, Vander Plaats didn’t take it sitting down

Brings up a fair question: What would Jesus tweet?

Former Braves P John Rocker says he’s a Trump man

Republicans plan to attack Trump’s alleged business excellence

You don’t usually find the words “Trump” and “humorous erotica” in the same sentence, but here you are

The Republican presidential candidate who has a massive lead in the polls is also the star of “Trump Temptations: The Billionaire & The Bellboy,” a fictional gay-themed erotic novel written by 22-year-old Los Angeles comedian Elijah Daniel, who is, perhaps, trying to make America sexy again.

And it’s winning on Amazon. The book is ranked No. 1 in the “humorous erotica” and “gay erotica” categories despite Daniel’s warning in his author biography: “I’m a comedian and very bad author, of very awful things. You shouldn’t read anything I write.”

D0n’t let that Vander Plaats guy hear about that

9-year-old girl bursts into tears when she finds out she’s meeting the Republican frontrunner

There aren’t many clear signs that you’ve failed at the monumental task of parenting…

But, it’s a beautiful story for that child: One day, little girl, maybe ten or twelve years from now, you, yes YOU, can grow up to become the next…Mrs. Donald Trump

 

 

 

 

One thought on “Daily Trump Dump 01/26/16”

  1. At this point, any sane person has given up thinking that another outrageous, provocative, bullying, childish act by Donald Trump, an unstable, narcissistic jerk who can’t take a punch from a girl (Megyn Kelly) or take a punch from her boss, Mr. Ailes, would give Trump supporters or would-be supporters pause. His calculated dodge of the last debate before Iowa… his taking fake offense at the pretty funny stuff coming out of Fox News: “We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president,” the network said in a statement. “A nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings.”….. and being sick enough to think Fox would actually take Megyn Kelly off the debate panel due to his “threat” “They can’t toy with me like they toy with everybody else,” Trump said. “Let them have their debate, and lets see how they do with the ratings”… we’re all resigned to the idea it’ll add 3 more points to his polls. Sadly, the other two news channels will NOT BE ABLE TO RESTRAIN THEMSELVES and will play right into Trump’s hands Thursday night, giving him parallel live coverage during the debate on Fox. “I’m going to do something else in Iowa. We’ll have something where we raise money for the veterans and the Wounded Warriors, we’ll do something simultaneously with the debate.” He’ll total up the audience numbers, brag about his “victory” in the ratings. You all know I’m not a big fan of Fox News. But they’ve handled this 100% correctly, standing their ground against this guy and behind Megyn Kelly. Imagine if they’d caved to Trump? And shame on CNN and MSNBC for not strongly and quickly backing Fox…. for the grace of Trump go thee. Chris Mathews, in particular, for not praising Fox (and his old boss, Roger Ailes, head of Fox News)…. I can’t see all the reactions but Mathews was disgraceful in thinking it was hilarious. Mediaite-“MSNBC host Chris Matthews bashed the idea of a Donald Trump-free Republican debate Tuesday, asking why anyone would care about a debate between “the Cuban guys.” All on a day we lost Abe Vigoda.
