Daily Trump Dump 03/08/16

Hostility works for some people, but not for everybody

–Donald J. Trump

THE BIG STORY: Trump rolled to victories in Michigan and Mississippi then addressed supporters and reporters in Jupiter, FL with Trump brand steaks, wine, and bottled water as a backdrop. Not the killing blow, but, a sharp rebuke of Senator Rubio, who had another terrible night (looking like he won’t receive any delegates in MI or MS). March 15th looks like a “high noon” situation in the winner-takes-all states of Ohio and Florida. America’s L’Enfant Terrible can’t be stopped. Here’s the whole news conference, if you hate yourself

The news for Rubio doesn’t get any better, as recent polls show him trailing DT by a big margin in his home state. Gov. Kasich gave Trump a fight in MI and just barely trails The Donald in Ohio

The only bright spot for Republicans pushing against DJT was a new NBC/WSJ poll showing the race between Cruzer and Trump narrowing nationally (Trump was unhappy with that poll, voicing his displeasure at the FL news conference). A national poll doesn’t really mean much at this point, except that Cruz can point to this as proof that Republicans are getting cold feet

Here’s a fairly wonky explanation of how the party elites could steal the nomination from Trump even if he gets the prescribed 1,237 delegates

Question: What do Hulk Hogan and DJT have in common:

  1. Both are orange
  2. Both have main evented Wrestlemania
  3. Both like to talk about their penises

The Donald released a video defending himself against accusations about Trump University. Here it is, if you hate yourself

Surprisingly, this doesn’t end the story. His claims are being contradicted left-and-right. Here’s a personal account of surviving Trump U

If the best Rubes can do to counter Trump is robo calls from Romney, it’s over

World leaders aren’t super pumped about the prospect of President Trump

DJT pleads ignorance about gesture that’s been compared to Nazi salute

“Honestly, until this phone call, I didn’t realize it was a problem,” the Republican front-runner said Tuesday in a live interview on TODAY.

Trump claimed the crowds simply were “having a good time” and even demanded he lead them in the pledge.

“If it’s offensive, if there’s anything wrong with it, I wouldn’t do it,” he said

Mein Kempf, roughly translated, means “having a good time”

Thanks, Marla

Keith Olbermann says he won’t live in Trump’s building anymore. He’s moving out

One day Trump appeared in person and, with what I only later realized was the same kind of sincere concern and respect that Eddie Haskell used to pay “Beaver” Cleaver’s mother, asked me how I liked the place and to let him know personally if anything ever went wrong. About 15 months ago, when the elevators failed and many of the heating-unit motors died and the water shut off, I wrote him. He sent an adjutant over to bluster mightily about the urgency of improvements and who was to blame for the elevators and how there would be consequences, and within weeks Trump’s minions were obediently and diligently installing — a new revolving door at the back of the lobby.

That three-week project stretched past three months, smothered the lobby in stench and grime, required the repeated removal and reinstallation of a couple of railings, and for a time created a window frosting problem even when it wasn’t cold out.

So at least there’s this comfort. If there is a President Trump and he decides to build this ludicrous wall to prevent the immigration from Mexico that isn’t happening, and he uses that same contractor, it’ll take them about a thousand years to finish it
