I love my protestors…They all look like spoiled children
THE BIG STORY: Back on the road again for the Republican frontrunner, as he looks forward to some big contests on Tuesday. Trump appeared at a rally in Fayetteville, NC where, by some accounts, nearly twenty protestors were ejected from The Crown Coliseum. Among other things, Mr. Trump claimed that the federal budget passed recently by Congress “funded ISIS”. Here’s the whole thing, if you hate yourself
And it’s not even one of the ones he hates like Megyn Kelley or Katy Tur. It was Michelle Fields of the insanely conservative Breitbart organization. The incident happened right after that QVC extravaganza in Jupiter, FL on Tuesday. Speaking of which…
All that stuff you saw Trump claiming he was selling? The wine? The steak? The water?
Trump Steaks shuttered years ago, as did Trump Magazine and Trump Vodka. Trump Winery is still operational, but Trump Water is only available on… yep, Trump-owned properties
I know! Call Hobby Lobby and tell them you want Trump Water™
Protestor who shoved a black woman in Louisville last week wants you to know he isn’t a racist
There is no excuse for my actions. I physically pushed a young woman down the aisle toward the exit, an action I sincerely regret. I have embarrassed myself, my family, and Veterans. This was a very unfortunate incident and it is my sincere hope that I can be forgiven for my actions
It’s so rare to see a Trump supporter take unequivocal responsibility for their actions that it borders on refreshing. Another guy who pushed-and-shoved in Louisville won’t be getting into the United States Marine Corps
This one is fascinating: A 1964 LBJ ad has been making the rounds this week
When the head of the Ku Klux Klan…when all these weird groups come out in favor of the candidate of my party…either they’re not Republicans or I’m not
First, it’s important to acknowledge that the man featured in the ad is an actor. Nonetheless, he represents what a lot of Republicans felt regarding Goldwater. And it’s amazing how the things said 52 years ago resonate today. As the Bible says “nothing new under the sun”
And that’s not even in Two Corinthians
Jalopnik says that the NASCAR CEO’s recent endorsement of Trump is a big problem
We can say that NASCAR doesn’t care because, fundamentally, NASCAR is Brian France and the France family. Brian, who bootstrapped his way to the top of NASCAR with nothing but his father who was already the CEO and his grandfather who founded the race series already supporting him, owns enough of NASCAR to maintain complete control over its corporate operations. So when he endorses Trump—a man whose entire political campaign is based not only chaos, but on a regressive desire to make America “great” again, when it was great to white men but to no one else—NASCAR’s intentions have been laid bare
France acknowledged he’s had to have conversations with sponsors since making the endorsement, which came as NASCAR is seeking a new main sponsor for its top series.
“I made a few phone calls and clarified some things,” he said. “That kind of goes with the territory.”
France told the AP on Wednesday he backed Barack Obama in 2008 and actively participated in the campaign, shifting his support to Mitt Romney four years later.
“I supported Obama. I went to his rallies. I parted with my hard-earned money. There was a movement going on, and I was really thrilled with the idea of the first African-American president,”
Having lived in North Carolina my entire life and having followed NASCAR casually for a number of years, I can tell you that Brian France never appeared at a rally expressing his support publicly for Obama in 2008. As for his support of DJT, I guess he saw the
