Occasional Trump Dump 03/15/16

The show is entertainment, the show is a circus, the show is stupid. I’ve said that for 25 years. The show is what it is, but my gosh when you’re talking about running the free world, running America, what kind of nation we ought to be, you don’t go to a television show

–Jerry Springer

 

THE BIG NEWS: Another big night for the Republican frontrunner as he destroys Rubio in FL, driving Little Marco™ from the race. Trump also racked up victories in NC, IL, and MO. The only hiccup for The Donald was a victory in Ohio by homeboy John Kasich. Hillary Clinton had her victory celebration in West Palm Beach, just down the road from Mar-a-Largo where DJT addressed his supporters sans steaks, wine, and water. It’s pretty standard fare, but there’s some funny stuff about Trump being embarrassed at the golf tournament at his course

A Trump supporter infiltrated the Kasich victory speech in Berea, OH and the Governor handled it pretty well

In short, Tuesday night may be referred to, in the future, as the night the Republican Establishment (whatever the hell that is) died. It remains to be seen how ANYONE can stop the Trump Monster from winning the nomination. Any magical, behind-the-scenes deals at the GOP Convention would require a level of cunning and unity that has, so far, been absent in the Republican party. Everyone seems to be looking around, waiting for someone to charge up the hill, bayonet fixed. So far, no takers

Also, important to note, Trump’s victories make him the only candidate currently running for the GOP nomination able to put his name forward at the convention, according to Republican rules. No one else has managed to fit the criteria laid out by the party

Here’s another fun fact: I’ve read some articles that say it’s unclear if paying money for delegates at the convention is against party rules. You can imagine Team Trump™ commandeering a hotel suite in Cleveland and ushering in delegate after delegate, as they fork over cash from a trash bag

In the victory speech, Trump touted his recent endorsement from Florida’s Attorney General Pam Bondi, who, oddly enough, received a campaign contribution from The Donald not that long ago. That campaign contribution preceded Ms. Bondi dropping her investigation into Trump University. I’m POSITIVE the timing on that was coincidental

Also, during the speech, DJT gave a giant “F U” to those who have criticized Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski for body slamming (then) Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields by putting Lewandowski onstage next to the candidate and having his boss tell him “Nice job, Corey”

Democrats are trolling incumbent Republican senators, tying them to Trump for saying they would support the eventual GOP nominee, no matter who it is

Former female Trump executive says her old boss is an angry man

Res says that Trump has “changed a lot over the years.”

“Even in the years that I worked for him I saw changes in him. He used to have very strong women who he listened to, and gave a lot of authority to, but I doubt if that’s the case now.”

“He never used to speak about women like he does now.”

DJT now says he never said he’d pay legal fees of violent supporters. Except, you know, he did

Trump re-kindled his hatred of Megyn Kelly on Tuesday

Add “crazy” to the list of pejorative adjectives he’s used to describe women

I’m surprised he didn’t blame it on PMS

Trump’s butler spins yarns of life at Mar-a-Largo

More recently, Mar-a-Lago has set off controversy in the Republican primary, as Mr. Trump has been criticized by rivals for hiring employees from abroad to staff the club rather than relying on the local work force.

“There are a lot of Romanians, there’s a lot of South Africans, we have one Irishman,” Mr. Senecal said of the staff, before echoing Mr. Trump’s defense that locals shunned the short-term seasonal work. But he also added of the foreigners: “They’re so good. They are so professional. These local people,” he trailed off, making a disapproving face

And this gem…

Still, Mr. Senecal said that Mr. Trump could be generous when the mood struck him, sometimes peeling $100 bills from a wad in his pocket to give to the groundskeepers, whom Mr. Senecal described as appreciative.

“You’re a Hispanic and you’re in here trimming the trees and everything, and a guy walks up and hands you a hundred dollars,” Mr. Senecal said. “And they love him, not for that, they just love him.”

Here, Juan: Take this. I’m going to build a wall to keep your brother out

(Psst…they love him for the money. Really! Nothing else)

Daily Trump Dump 03/02/16

THE BIG NEWS: Trump was still basking in the afterglow of Super Tuesday. THEN! Out of nowhere, Mitt Romney jumped in to become buzzkill #1. This was met by mostly muted criticism a little annoyance full-on Twitter bombs from DT

I like the idea that Mr. Wharton took the time to carefully divide his thoughts into two separate tweets, but blew the spelling of the man who has been our president for seven years. It’s lovely to see Romney in a blood feud with The Donald. Remember, it was Mitt who got the whole tax return issue rolling last week

But, he saved his most vicious Twitter missives for Rubes

Maybe he learned his awesome financial skills at Trump University

YEAH! Suck it, Marco! How does that feel, niño?

Tomorrow night’s debate could get real testy. Based on the Rubio/Trump slugfest from last week’s debate, this could be RAW. Rubio scored one victory on Super Tuesday (Minnesota) and that victory netted him three (three) more delegates than DT (Minnesota apportions, based on percentage). Rubes is a desperate man and he needs to take down the big, bad bully. What will Cruzer do? Stay tuned

Meanwhile, one of the ugliest videos of this election cycle surfaced today. It’s from a Trump rally in Louisville

It shows a black woman being continuously shoved by Trump supporters. You can even see police standing by, doing nothing to people who are clearly breaking the law. Shaun King of The New York Daily News writes that it’s only a matter of time before someone is killed at one of these rallies. A sobering thought, but I think I can top it: Imagine the city of Cleveland (site of the RNC) this summer with white supremacists and Klan members trekking to town to support their guy. The potential for deadly violence is off-the-charts. 2016 could be the new 1968

Again, stay tuned

Gizmodo wonders if Trump has ever used a computer

I also found this photo of Trump at the Economic Club of Washington on December 15, 2014. He appears to be speaking on an invisible phone, which isn’t so much evidence of anything, but just kinda funny.

It’s good to laugh while we still can, right?

Admittedly, I’ve never seen Trump’s signature reality TV shows—The Apprentice, Celebrity Apprentice, nor Ban All Muslims Apprentice. But my web searches have turned up nothing even close to The Donald™ using a computer on that show, let alone anywhere else.

If Trump has truly never used a computer, that would be a remarkable change of trajectory in American politics. Since the transition from Bill Clinton in the early 1990s to George W. Bush in the 2000s to Barack Obama, our presidents have changed with the technological times. None have been technological wizards, but they’ve appeared competent with the mainstream computing tech of their day

Makes perfect sense to me. America was great when we weren’t all using computers, so in order to Make America Great Again™, we turn to a man who turns back the clock. I would expect Trump’s Brownshirts to stop assaulting black people and start rounding up PCs and Macs for a good, old-fashioned burning

DT released his health care reform plan. Step 1: Repeal Obamacare. Step 2: No dying in the streets. If you die in the streets, he kills you

The war between Trump and the Ricketts family heated up. I would expect some trolling if the Cubs start sucking this summer. See? That’s another way to support The Donald: Boo the Cubs. So, DT should wear the colors of the Cubs’ hated rivals, the White Sox? But, WAIT! You know who is a big fan of the White Sox

That’s right. Barrack Obama

 

Daily Trump Dump 02/26/16

THE BIG STORY: After suffering though the Cuban double team at Thursday’s debate in Houston, Trump rebounded with a big endorsement from Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), who made the announcement in Fort Worth. If you hate yourself, here it is

One has to wonder if the Governor’s good friend, Jerry Jones, paid for that plane ride to Texas. It remains to be seen what the price was for this particular political prize, but, imagine this: Supreme Court Justice Chris Christie. Man, those hearings will be SPECTACULAR!

Christie’s was only the second most disturbing endorsement of Trump this week

But, Cruzer and Rubes went hard after Trump at the debate, landing shots on his tax returns and employment of illegal aliens (extra points for Rubio, who smeared helpless Poles instead of Hispanics). It remains to be seen if their attacks will bear fruit, but, a lot of pundits say they should have been teaming up on DT for a while now.

Rubes and Trump continued to go after each other on Friday with Trump beating a long-dead horse and Marco firing back about DT’s “wet pants”. Donald then used the twitter

Rubes then tried and failed to make fun of Trump’s spelling expertise

Lincoln and Douglas are weeping in their graves

Back to the tax return issue: DT claims he hasn’t released tax returns because he’s being audited and he’s being audited because he’s a Christian. PS: His excuse for not releasing the tax returns is BS

Trump University was a massive scam

But an investigation by Mr. Schneiderman’s office found that Mr. Trump had little to do with picking instructors at the seminars or developing the curriculums for the seminars, which were run largely by people with motivational speaking backgrounds who were compensated based on how many people they persuaded to buy additional seminars. One of them was a manager at Buffalo Wild Wings

He never really cares about what he puts his name on, which makes me wonder if Trump Vodka caused blindness in 4 out of 5 alcoholics. Maybe if you got drunk off of it, you wandered around screaming obscenities and calling people “losers” and “dopey”

Hey! Was that vodka made by undocumented Polish workers? Somebody check on that

The Trump vs. Vicente Fox feud escalated. The former Mexican president dropped the “f bomb” when talking about Trump’s proposed wall on Thursday. DT was offended

So, Fox Business gave Fox an opportunity to apologize on Friday. And…

Well, he certainly passes The Donald’s “politically incorrect” test

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): My party has gone batshit crazy

In no-holds-barred remarks at a celebratory dinner Thursday night, the South Carolina senator and unsuccessful presidential candidate said the GOP has lost all semblance of sanity and predicted the party will suffer irrevocable losses in November if it backs Trump.

Graham said the GOP has its best chance in years to win as Democrats are likely to nominate Hillary Clinton, who has been damaged by questions about her trustworthiness. But his party is about to blow it, he said.

“The most dishonest person in America is a woman, who’s about to become president. How could that be? My party has gone batshit crazy,” Graham said.

But, Senator Graham also used his wicked sense of humor

In closing, Graham declared himself the Dr. Jack Kevorkian of the GOP presidential campaign, referring to the euthanasia activist who died in 2011. Graham’s own presidential bid faltered, and he had to drop out. He endorsed Jeb Bush, who subsequently quit.

Graham then pulled out a white baseball cap emblazoned with Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan and endorsed the New Yorker.

“I endorse Donald Trump and hope the Graham magic still exists,” he said

After previously declaring war on Apple and Ford, Trump went after Amazon on Friday

“I have respect for Jeff Bezos, but he bought The Washington Post to have political influence, and I gotta tell you, we have a different country than we used to have,” Trump said. “He owns Amazon. He wants political influence so that Amazon will benefit from it. That’s not right. And believe me, if I become president, oh, do they have problems. They’re going to have such problems.”

Just close your eyes for a moment and imagine that Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) back in 2008 had said, “When I get in office, Wal-Mart (or General Motors or United Healthcare of YUM! Brands) will have a lot of problems! Boy, will they have problems!”. Rush Limbaugh’s head would’ve exploded. Every server Drudge had would have melted down. Roger Ailes might have stroked out

So, maybe the fallout wouldn’t have been that terrible

 

 

 

 

 

Daily Trump Dump 02/23/16

THE BIG NEWS: Despite cries of shenanigans, Our Hero came through and made it three-in-a-row with a victory in the Nevada Caucus. The Cuban Twosome finished second and third (Rubes then Cruzer) and Carson edged Kasich for fourth place. All five are expected to take the stage for yet another debate Thursday in Houston, courtesy of the good folks at CNN. Trump finished with over 40% of the vote in Nevada, making it the first time he’s crossed that particular threshold. At this point, The Donald’s nomination is all but inevitable

CNN’s Political Director David Chalian had the amazing stat that Trump got 44% of Nevada’s Latino vote vs. 29% for Rubio and 18% for Cruz. Perhaps these folks are looking to be deported and think that DT would provide the cheapest way

The Donald strolled out to his victory speech to the opening strains of Van Halen’s “Right Now” (which was once used to sell Crystal Pepsi). This speech was in stark contrast to the Decaffeinated Donald we saw in New Hampshire. Flanked by his sons Eric and Donald, Jr., he pointed out his good friend Steve Wynn in the crowd. Actual quote:

We won with the poorly educated. I love the poorly educated

Here’s the entire victory speech, if you hate yourself

He’s on such a roll right now that even the woman who filed a sexual assault suit against him said she’d vote to Make America Great Again

Some GOP strategists say that Trump can still be stopped

The bad blood between DT and The Cruzer continued as Donald’s lawyers sent a letter to the NVGOP to watch out for Cruz supporters’ funny business at polling places. Plus, DT was lighting Cruz up on twitter yet again

I believe that’s questioning someone’s faith and I thought that was a no-no (see also, “I never questioned Cruz’s faith”)

He’s focused on Cruzer like a pedophile at a sock hop

The Wild Wild West had it’s moments of surreal performance art as The Donald showed up at a Cruz rally hosted by Glenn Beck. No violence occurred, which is a little surprising, as Trump was feeling pretty froggy on Monday

“I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher, folks. It’s true.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell yah.”

Remember, on Sunday, he told us he’d start acting presidential any day now. I’ll hold my breath and you do the same

Speculation that DT could pick Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) as his running mate. I don’t know if that’s the deal, but, remember Scott fits the “pettiness” requirement. Here he is refusing to take the stage because his debate opponent had a small fan (oscillating variety)

Which brings up the question: What if Trump hadn’t skipped that last debate in Iowa? He might be 4-0 right now

Vanity Fair takes an in-depth look at Trump’s short fingers

Macy’s has shaken off Trump’s boycott. By the way, Apple is still in business too, in case you were wondering

 

 

 

 

 

Trump Dump 02/16/16

THE BIG NEWS: The Battle of South Carolina continued and The Donald rallied the troops in North Augusta. If you hate yourself, here it is

We did get a little “warm and fuzzy” before he spoke. A woman told a story of how Trump paid off her mom’s mortgage after her father killed himself. That should keep him from getting the “Hitler Suite” in hell

Trump said he had never told that story before, and admitted that saving the Hill’s farm cost him more money than he had anticipated spending.

‘I figured I could do it a lot cheaper than paying off the mortgage,’ he said. ‘I found out the name of the bank. That was a mean banker, I want to tell you.’

‘I called up: “We’re gonna take you through hell, we’re gonna this, we’re gonna that.” I couldn’t get the guy to cut! So I bought the mortgage and I said, “The hell with it”.’

Hill was ‘a great woman, and passed away, but passed away happy,’ Trump said

Of course, I reserve the right to be less-than-impressed if certain facts come out in the next few days rendering this version of the story BS

Trump says he’d tone down the tweets if he becomes POTUS

SAY IT AIN’T SO! You might as well tell Van Gogh he’s got to lay off the oils (or whatever Van Gogh painted with). Tell Chet Atkins “Gee! You’re gonna need to put that guitar down”. Hey, Kanye! Stop rapping!

Seriously, Kanye. Stop rapping

Obama took off the gloves re: The GOP frontrunner

“Being president is a serious job,” Mr. Obama said. “It’s not hosting a talk show or a reality show. It’s not promotion. It’s not marketing. It’s hard. And a lot of people count on us getting it right. And it’s not a matter of pandering and doing whatever will get you in the news on a given day.”

SHOTS FREAKING FIRED! DT responds

“This man has done such a bad job and set us back so far,” Trump said, trashing Obama’s handling of the economy, immigration and the threat of ISIS. “For him to say that is actually a great compliment.”

Trump then alluded to his brief flirtation with a presidential run four years ago, saying Obama is fortunate that he decided against challenging Mitt Romney for the 2012 Republican nomination.

“You’re lucky I didn’t run last time,” Trump said of Obama. “You’d be a one-term president.”

Trump continues to dominate Cruz in SC polls

I am still unable to find any example of a GOP candidate winning two of the first three contests (IA,NH,SC) who didn’t go on to capture the nomination

Trump says former Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) called Cruzer one of the most dishonest people he’s ever worked with. Problem is, and this is going to shock you, The Donald made that up

Trump warns SC that Boeing could move jobs to China. Of course, he would never allow that. I think the strategy would be:

  1. Call China
  2. Cuss someone out
  3. Hang up

Trump snaps up jebbush.com after Jeb! lets domain expire

SC Gov. Haley: Anyone but Trump

Haley said Tuesday she’s still trying to make up her mind. But she said Trump represents “everything a governor doesn’t want in a president.”

Madam, you just lost yourself a sweet VP spot

DT confuses Obama for Ben Carson

Folks, sometimes the jokes write themselves

Daily Trump Dump 01/27/16

THE BIG STORY: The Trump vs. Fox News turmoil was at full boil today. Let’s break a couple of things down

Ooh, Mr. Billionaire. You’re sooo smart. I can barely decipher that you are calling her a bimbo. That was at 6:44 this morning. Remember that

Check the time stamp. Nearly 12 hours later. So, why did you call her a bimbo (which you did)? If the PR statement was what set you off, why was it necessary to slander her? Did she write it?

New York Magazine says the offending statement has Roger Ailes fingerprints all over it

Various reports say that Trump won’t talk to Megyn Kelly or Sean Hannity or even Ailes. He wants to hear from Rupert Murdoch (hey, Donald, he communicates on your platform of choice

I also loved this one

Do rich people not own mirrors?

Paul Waldman of The Washington Post says Trump will be at the debate

Some time today or tomorrow, Fox will agree to release an anodyne statement saying they intend to treat all the candidates fairly, including Trump. At that point Trump will declare victory, saying that because he’s such a great negotiator he got them to capitulate to him, just like he’ll do to the Mexicans and the Chinese. Then he’ll participate in the debate, after garnering two solid days of wall-to-wall Trump coverage

*sigh*

Yahoo! News says Trump>Ailes because Donald got Roger to stoop to his level

If Trump doesn’t make it to the stage and, instead, does the fundraising event for veterans in Iowa, one veterans group is saying no thanks

Rieckhoff was one of the strongest voices rebuking Sarah Palin for claiming that Obama made her son Track hit his girlfriend

But, The Great Fox-Trump War wasn’t the only thing on Donald’s mind

 

May I suggest Banff? I hear it’s lovely and right in Cruzer’s home province of Alberta. By the way, Cruzer knows how to use the twitter machine, too

So, Cruzer took the opportunity to challenge Donald to go one-on-one

Is that a Scrooge McDuck photo shop? Well played

Bill O’Reilly tried so hard to tell Trump he had a lot to gain by showing up at the debate

Alas, no dice

But, I don’t want you to think that today was all about negativity

Rush said he wasn’t taking sides in The Great Fox-Trump War, but

That was RT’s by The Donald. Rush has given himself enough space on his show that if the whole Trump movement turns to crap, he can back away from it without owning it. He certainly speaks highly of Trump, but the proof that he wants to maintain a little distance is this: Trump hasn’t appeared on Rush’s show since he started running for president. It could be easily arranged and Trump has appeared on just about every show on every possible platform

Trump has presented quite a dilemma for local talk radio hosts across the country. Many of them know he is crazy and that his rhetoric is pure BS, but they have to walk a thin line because the crazy right-wingers that still listen to talk radio love Trump. Some of these hosts have to take weak pokes at Trump then they go home and drink themselves into a stupor and cry themselves to sleep because they have to pretend to like him

Rand Paul took some shots at the GOP frontrunner today

It’s sort of a double-win for me: Not only am I on the main stage, but we don’t have to put up with a lot of empty blather and boastfulness and calling people names

Hey, man, nice shot

SC’s Lt. Gov. endorsed Trump. Seriously, he’s going to win SC by like 30 points unless they catch him peeing on Strom Thurmond’s grave. A maximum of 8% of people in any state can even name their Lieutenant Governor

Today’s other big fight was Kanye vs. Wiz Khalifa. Just in case the Trump-Fox thing was a little highbrow for you

From yesterday, AP does a profile of the current Mrs. Trump

Note to Washington power snobs: Don’t expect Melania Trump to put up with condescension.

On a visit to the Trump triplex above Manhattan, one of the contestants on his show, “The Apprentice,” says to Melania: “You’re very, very lucky.”

“Thank you,” Melania, holding a glass of champagne, says with a glittering smile. “And he’s not lucky?”

Aw, snap!

CNN talked to 150 Trump supporters to find out why they’re supporting The Donald

Brothers Ernie Martin and Lee Walter from Cresco, Iowa, were among a group of zealous Trump fans at the front of the line outside a Trump rally in Des Moines on December 11. They had waited more than seven hours to see the candidate in person.

“Hey, hey. Ho, ho. All the Muslims have to go!” Walter, a 64-year-old retired factory worker, began to chant

You can do better than that, Walter, buddy. How about

Two, four, six, eight. Being white is really great

Or

No, No, B-H-O. Back to Kenya, you must go
