Trump Daily Dump 01/25/16

No overwhelming big story dominating the headlines, but the Glenn Beck vs. Donald Trump war continued

Beck continued, quoting Trump, “‘I could go onto Fifth Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose a vote.’ He has joked about killing reporters — and ‘not’ killing reporters like Putin does.”

So, when Beck thinks your rhetoric is dangerous…

“One of the things that Donald Trump does, when you have a guy who is angry and then has an enemies list and starts to just take people down over and over and over again — if you disagree with him, he destroys you.”


Quickly, let’s sketch out the Trump Enemies List:

  1. Megyn Kelly
  2. NBC
  3. Scotland (wouldn’t be surprised if bombing Scotland was on the “first day in office” agenda)
  4. The National Review
  5. Mexicans (despite his MANY Mexican friends)
  6. China
  7. People who don’t say “Merry Christmas”
  8. Glenn Beck
  9. George Takei
  10. America Ferrera
  11. Reporters with disabilities (probably making mental note to amend Americans with Disabilities Act to exclude joutnalists)
  12. Hillary
  13. Jeb!
  14. The Cruzer
  15. Carly Fiorina
  16. Obama
  17. Political Correctness
  18. People who hate on “New York Values”
  19. People who don’t support the 2nd Amendment
  20. People who hate on eating pizza with a knife and a fork
  21. Bill de Blasio 
  22. Rowdy Ronda Rousey
  23. Conor McGregor

You can see, without breaking a sweat, we’ve exceeded the paltry 20 names on RMN’s list. Guy was a total LOSER with a capital “L”

Let’s go to the feed. Lots of Cruz missiles today

That’s a two-fer. You slam both Cruz and Jeb!

Donald is just concerned about Cruzer’s health, sounds like. Hilarious campaign stunt: Send Cruz headquarters a case of Lexapro

Sure. Like saying Mexico would pay for the wall. Now, this next one was RT’d by The Donald

I’m assuming that Geraldo is one of Trump’s MANY hispanic friends. Here’s one from Geraldo’s feed that Trump did NOT re-tweet

Under other circumstances, if Geraldo wasn’t being so solicitous, Trump would tweet about “terrible” Geraldo being fired from his NYC talk radio job. Donald also RT’s this

When Coulter points lovingly to Rummy, somewhere an angel gives up and throws her wings in the trash. My new hope is that the Coulter/Trump love affair continues and they make a sex tape, which would then DESTROY the entire sex tape industry

Trump is skeptical of Bloomberg’s reported worth, but he would “love” to have the former NYC Mayor get in the presidential race. Trump’s questioning of Bloomberg’s fortune isn’t just one of those “unzip and measure your willie” contests, is it? Nah. Couldn’t be that

Cruzer still banging that “New York Values” drum. Did this actually ring a bell for people in focus groups or something?

Scouring the twitter account of Trump spokeswoman (her description) Katrina Pierson has drawn the ire of The Catholic League. To be fair, that tweet is more than four years old and she hates Catholics way less now

Cruz on feud with Trump: He started it

Trump heartily endorses Holiday Inn Express. Why, I bet after a good night’s rest there, he could shoot anybody at 100 yards on 5th Avenue

Cruzer hits Trump on that “Two Corinthians” thing at Liberty

Rapper Chingy may or may not have endorsed Trump

Cruz accuses Trump of “insulting me every day”. In other news, sharks live in the ocean

Donald isn’t “100% sure” he’ll be at the debate on Thursday

Daily Trump Dump 01/23/16

THE BIG NEWS: The Republican frontrunner (I love typing that) said he could shoot someone and not lose any support

My people are so smart. And you know what else they say about my people? The polls, they say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters. Okay? It’s like incredible

Does it bother you:

a) Because he said it?

b) Because he’s probably right?

I’m sure that he’s not the first potential world leader to say this. When the first guy said it, it went something like this

I forgen shooten die street, could gotten poofin and still der volken luff dee assen

Or something like that. But, seriously, which scenario would make Trump supporters call it quits on The Donald:

a) Video of him tying up Wayne LaPierre 50 Shades of Grey style

b) News leaking out that his next wife is over the age of 25

c) Video showing evidence that he tried to pulled a Bill Cosby on Barbara Walters

d) Discovery that he’s running a multi-state dog fighting ring

Who are we kidding here? All of those would make him go up 7 points in Iowa and 6 in New Hampshire

The Trump vs. Megyn Kelly feud flared up again

You see, in Trump’s world beautiful and smart is a conflict of interest

In a recent Vanity Fair interview, Kelly said Trump tried to curry favor with her before he announced his candidacy by sending her signed press clippings. “But I can’t be wooed,” she said. “I was never going to love him, and I was never going to hate him.”

Come on. OF COURSE, you were going to hate him. It’s ok. I know you’re saying that because of your kids, but they should know that some people are just 100% detestable. Kim Jong Un…Putin…Bieber

Trump continues to rack up endorsements from people who used to matter

In case you’re not up on your Duck Dynasty, Willie Robertson is to Phil Robertson as Cruz is to Trump

I’m slightly concerned; Trump hasn’t used the word dopey on his twitter feed in days

Our Principles PAC released this anti-Trump ad

Which shows Trump taking many liberal stances, but, again, will this mean anything to supporters who wouldn’t be shaken about him shooting someone in Manhattan?

You know who would make a great Press Secretary in the Trump administration?

I kind of wish she was anti-Trump because the slams he could throw down against her would be epic. I could see 79 or 80 tweets on her Adam’s Apple alone

Here’s the ad

It’s hard to think of a more beloved figure in America than Barbara Bush. Maybe Nancy Reagan. And I would never put it past Trump to go after her, at some point

Sad that pathetic Nancy Reagan has to lie about me when she can’t even run a decent library #loser


Oh, he’s still pissed at Glenn Beck

Beck fired back

Quick, Tina Fey! I have a great idea for a sequel to Mean Girls

But, wait! Another billionaire is coming to save us

Trump Daily Dump 01/22/16

National Review goes HAM on The Donald with an editorial and a “symposium” on just how disastrous Trump would be as nominee. Before we dig into their points, let’s give props to NR‘s Mark Krikorian, who, correctly, points out

Dr. Frankensteins say beware of monsters. The editorial and several symposium contributors were clear that voters have good reason to be outraged at the serial betrayals by the Republican political class, even if Trump is the wrong vessel for that outrage. But a few of the contributors have helped perpetrate those betrayals – they’re part of the reason that Trump resonates with so many voters, and I’m loath to take their advice on dealing with the problem they helped create

Yep. You built that

The editorial is fairly dry, so let’s look at the all-star cast who throw so many stones. Glenn Beck, for example, that there was something good about Obama’s 2008 election

There was a silver lining, however. Rising out of the ashes of that electoral defeat came the Tea Party. The media struggled to explain it away as racist, xenophobic, and jingoistic. But the truth is, the Tea Party did not arise because Barack Obama defeated his opposition. It arose because there was no opposition

Sure. The Tea Part was super awesome. So much so, that people run from that branding these days. There isn’t even a Tea Party Caucus in the House anymore. They call themselves The Freedom Caucus because people came to view the Tea Party as nuts who simply howled at the moon. And these Trump supporters are just Tea Partiers even if they don’t acknowledge the label anymore

Mark Helprin is the most entertaining of the batch

And forget trying to determine whether he’s a conservative. Given that, at the suggestion of Bill Clinton, he has like a tapeworm invaded the schismatically weakened body of the Republican party, it’s a pointless question, because, like Allah in Islamic theology, he is whatever he pleases to be at the moment, the only principle being the triumph of his will

And on and on they go. Conservative heroes Erick Erickson, Dana Loesch, Michael Medved, and, my God, they even dug up Ed Meese. They’re is a certain irony about a group of people pointing out the tremendous ego of a guy, while simultaneously having massive egos large enough to contain the thought “if all of us band together, we can stop him”

Like the right-wing Transformers

Not surprisingly, Trump struck back against the NR on his twitter feed

He also throws some shade at a couple of symposium writers

Hey, you know who has LOTS of listeners?

The absolute BEST thing that could happen in the next few months is to have Rush and Trump turn on each other. Let’s face it: If a Rush Limbaugh show could become a thing, it would be the Donald Trump campaign. And both men are completely thin-skinned. Please let these two put each other on blast. I would laugh myself silly

Trump also launched a few Cruz missiles

Look, there’s only one way to settle this Cruz Canadian deal: Show him a DVD of hockey fights and if he can watch without coming to his feet and applauding, then I’ll accept his U.S. citizenship. Trump should send an urn to Cruz purporting to hold the ashes of Rocket Richard. Also, Trump could get Wayne Gretzky to record a message of support, saying Cruz is The Great One’s choice for PM POTUS

Of course, if Cruz does get elected, he could just mock everyone with a showing of Slap Shot in the White House movie theatre. He could really be a jerk about it and celebrate Thanksgiving in October. Cruz and Mrs. Cruz could take a relaxing vacation in Nova Scotia. Pin a Medal of Freedom on Anne Murray. The possibilities are endless

Woody Guthrie was one of the most important, influential musicians tis country has ever produced. Dylan was heavily influenced by him. So was Springsteen. And he hated Donald Trump’s dad

Guthrie’s two-year tenancy in one of Fred Trump’s buildings and his relationship with the real estate mogul of New York’s outer boroughs produced some of Guthrie’s most bitter writings, which I discovered on a recent trip to the Woody Guthrie Archives in Tulsa. These writings have never before been published; they should be, for they clearly pit America’s national balladeer against the racist foundations of the Trump real estate empire

When Woody Guthrie put you on blast, he really put you on blast

 I suppose
    Old Man Trump knows
    Just how much
    Racial Hate
    he stirred up
    In the bloodpot of human hearts
    When he drawed
    That color line
    Here at his
    Eighteen hundred family project ....

Some renewed attention on a Village Voice two-parter from 1979 about young Donald and his early conquests in the New York real estate market. It’s quite rich with detail and it paints a picture of a ruthless man

From the twitter feed…

Fox & Friends RULEZ!

Sad sack and low energy? MEOW!

He’s also been on the warpath against Glenn Beck

Beck is moving on from his former gf Palin and is doing some campaign appearances in Iowa with the Cruzer. Which brings up the headache-inducing question: Who has more sway over Iowa evangelicals, Palin or Beck?

Trump’s contributions to NYC’s culinary scene are mocked here

At the end of the atrium floor is the Trump Café’s steam table, a 40-foot-long affair that might have been borrowed from a public high school. It’s divided into five sections, each with its own menu: hamburgers and pizzas, soups, do-it-yourself salads, sandwiches, and entrees. One day I tried the bacon cheeseburger ($12.40) and found the patty rubbery and way overcooked, real prison food. A couple of slices of half-melted American lay wanly on top like spent runners, and some terrible fries tasting of burned vegetable oil accumulated on the side

Trump appears to blame Obama for racial unrest in Ferguson, MO

Sure, and if Obama made Track Palin hit his gf, then surely he was to blame for the Palin birthday party brawl of ’14, as well

Kevin Spacey predicts a Frank Underwood vs. Donald Trump debate

“There would be a terrible accident on the way to the debate, and – it would be terrible, and very sad.”

Trump weighs in on “White Oscars” debate

“I’ve watched over the years where African Americans have in fact received Academy Awards and have in fact been represented,” Trump said. “And this is not one of those years, but over the years I’ve seen numerous black actors and African American actors receive awards and I think that’s great. This doesn’t happen to be one of those years… It’s a difficult situation”

The Donnie and Sarah Show played Tulsa. If you hate yourself, here it is

Palin gave almost the identical speech she gave in Iowa on Tuesday, with the exception of blaming Obama for her son’s recent arrest. She received immediate pushback from some of America’s top veterans’ advocates

“It’s not President Obama’s fault that Sarah Palin’s son has PTSD,” said Paul Rieckhoff, who heads Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). “PTSD is a very serious problem, a complicated mental health injury and I would be extremely reluctant to blame any one person in particular.”

The alleged incident took place at Sarah and Todd’s house and included a suicide threat from Track Palin

Kudos to the NY Daily News for the boss cover

Sadly, Glenn Frey’s final days get hind teat. The Daily News has become what Keith Olbermann was during those murky ’04-’06 days of the Iraq War. It’s a calculated decision as the Post continues to kiss butt

Feel Free to vomit. BTW, Public Enemy dissed the Post properly 25 years ago

Here’s a letter to the New York Post
Ain’t worth the paper it’s printed on

That hideous sweater Sarah wore in Iowa continues to get play. The WaPo says that monstrosity was supposed to be distractingIn yet another disturbing indictment of the intelligence of the American people, that sucker flew off the shelves. In any case, she went all Leather Tuscadero on us in Tulsa

The guy who says he isn’t a politician sucked up to Iowans by calling for more corn to go into our gas. Yeah, that’s a really refreshing escape from pandering pols

While Trump killed Cruz over that “New York values” stuff with some sweet 9/11 invocations, first responders say he doesn’t have their back. Again, just like politicians

That whole deal about making Apple manufacture stuff in America? Well, say hello to the $1,300 iPhone

Not sure what a “wazzock” is, but an MP (member of Parliament) in the UK called Trump a dangerous one of those. They’re not going to ban him, however
