is it really possible that Donald Trump could be president????? [Part 4](90 Posts)
The answer is obviously yes, but there will be a whole lot of fun in getting there.
Claig it isn't a game, and fun is a grotesque word to use. People have already been hurt by his rhetoric.
Was it fun when he called Rosie o'Donnell a pig?
Trump is a hoot which is why he is so popular. Here is Camille Paglia who doesn't even support Trump
"He’s terrific on the radio, I must say. Even though I do like Elizabeth Warren (I even believe she has Native American ancestry, although certainly not enough to qualify her for affirmative action), I burst out laughing in my car last week when I heard Trump confidingly say (like a yenta at Zabar’s deli), “She’s a woman that has been very ineffective—except that she has a big mouth.” His New York comic timing was spot on. I laughed out loud again this week when I heard Trump interrupt his press conference to tag an ABC reporter as “a sleaze”—at which I am sure thousands of other radio listeners heartily cheered. It’s been a long time since any major politician had the chutzpah to tell the arrogant, double-dealing East Coast media what most of the country thinks about them."
Have you seen a Trump rally? Ann Coulter says that some of her friends who don't support Trump go along and say it is better than any comedy show.
Here is just one small example of how Trump keeps the fans entertained.
I seriously don't think he will, he is just a dumbass.
Aeroflotgirl, he said yesterday that he will make a major speech on what has been going on with the Clintons, probably next Monday. Make sure you keep up with this speech because it will be like nothing anyone has ever heard in politics ever. It will shake the earth. Fasten your seatbelts. Trump has no fear, he will tell everything.
Oh god, I hope Hilary is prepared. I am hoping she will be the first woman president and that nobody will listen to him as he is full of crap.
'Oh god, I hope Hilary is prepared. '
There is nothing on earth she can do to prepare for what Trump is likely to say. We will see if he goes all the way, but the confident way he mentioned it yesterday and joked that "I think the press might want to be there" indicates that Trump is going all the way. Nothing like it will ever have been seen. Trump is not a "politician", he is fearless and scared of none of them.
Says a lot that he uses dirty tactics to gain power.
He only tells the truth. The difference with the rest of the "politicians" is that he is not scared of anyone and so is prepared to tell the truth and tell it like it is. It is his fearlessness that makes him so remarkable and is why this election is so unusual. It is not politics as usual. He said last night "we can't rely on the "politicians" to solve it, they have rigged the system, and teh rigged system keeps them in jobs".
Hilarious I wouldn't want Frankie Boyle as PM!
What else could he possibly have to say? He's already unleashed pretty much everything he could think of.
And Claig, the truth? Seriously? He spouts what he deems will go down best in the moment. Hence the many contradictory statements leading to things like the Muhammad Ali debacle on twitter.
So he's making a big speech and slagging off his opponents. I'd hardly say that hasn't ever been seen before in politics
'What else could he possibly have to say? '
Wait till Monday, wiltingfast. A lot of people are going to fnd out things they could never have imagined.
Yes, he says lots of contradictory things but on the big issues like what he say about the Clintons, there will just be truth.
'I'd hardly say that hasn't ever been seen before in politics '
Remember, Trump is not a "politician". He is not scared like them, he is not owned like them, no one bullies or buys Trump. he is in no one's pocket. What Trump will say is what no puppet politician on the planet would ever dare say. Don't miss it. It will shake everything to its roots.
"Trump promises 'major speech' about the Clintons as he closes out GOP primaries and blasts Hillary for turning 'the politics of personal enrichment into an art form'
Trump teases anti-Clinton speech 'probably Monday of next week' during election night victory-lap speech
Donald Trump turned the corner on a vicious presidential primary process Tuesday night, pledging to visit a new round of political horrors on Hillary and Bill Clinton.
The Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting said that 'probably Monday of next week' he would deliver a 'major speech' featuring a discussion of 'all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons.'
'I think you're going to find it very informative and very, very interesting,' he said, sporting an impish grin. 'I wonder if the press wil want to atend. Who knows?'"
We have been told that world "leaders" are "terrified" of Trump and we know that is the case. But some of them still don't understand Trump and don't think he is for real. After his speech on the Clintons, they will no longer be under any illusion. They will understand who they are dealing with and theor panicked calls of alarm will ring out across the globe.
Their game is up. It's Trump 2016.
It'll backfire against Trump now, when it's just him vs Hillary Clinton.
some of them still don't understand Trump
I can't say I do, either.
Dear god you think the racist, sexist, bigoted ignoramus is fit to lead the USA? He may be laughable but it's beyond a joke now. Hilary Clinton may not be as clean as she should be but she is far more knowledgeable about world affairs and is fair more statesman like than that buffoon. The thought of him being in charge of the red button is truly terrifying.
Him slagging off his opponent in the next rant does not mean he is fit for the job just that he fights dirty instead of convincing the voters of his suitability for the job.
LineyReborn, I don't think so. What he says is likely to be so shocking that even the BBC and the controlled media will be unable to hide it when it is discussed all across social media and in every living room across the United States. There are likely to be anxious, desperate phone calls to Trump from Republicans, Democrats and world "leaders" begging Trump not to go there. But none of them know Trump. He is fearless and nothing will stop him.
World "leaders" are terrified, the media is in meltdown and the Clinton campaign is probably cracking at the seams.
Exactly dory, it may backfire on him totally, if he has to scrape the bottom of the barrel.
"some of them still don't understand Trump
I can't say I do, either."
Don't believe the media, we know they lie and spin. Wait until Trump wins and you will then see how good for the entire world he is as he ends the game of the crooks who have robbed the people and lined their pockets.
Claig, I mean when Trump speaks, I find it hard to follow what he's saying because it is often so disjointed and inarticulate.
Anyway, all his 'big reveal' will be is that the Clintons got rich using a bit of ducking and diving - like he didn't? - and she fucked up her emails. It's pretty grim, but it's not news.
'when Trump speaks, I find it hard to follow what he's saying because it is often so disjointed and inarticulate.'
Yes because Trump fans know what he is going to say as he has said it before, so he doesn't even bother ending the thought any more because we are all ahead of him. Trump can communicate to the Trump fans simply by starting a sentence or by saying just the first syllable of a word.
'all his 'big reveal' will be is that the Clintons got rich using a bit of ducking and diving '
No. It goes way, way beyond that. It is truly shocking. We don't yet know how much Trump will reveal and world "leaders" are praying that he doesn't "go there", but if we have learned anything about Trump, we have learned that he has no fear and is scared of no one, so I think he may well go all the way and that will be the biggest news ever. How the BBC will be tasked to handle it is anyone's guess, but Trump has bypassed the mainstream media and dominated the airwaves without them.
Trump will win IMO. People just don't like Hilary. Maybe because she is a women.
