I saw this headline today and couldn’t believe it was true: Then I saw it popping up from news outlets I trusted and, after digging, I can confirm that it’s true: a 12-year-old boy is running a campaign office in a swing state for the Trump campaign: In one of the most important counties in [Read More…]
Ok, this is all I will post today because the wife is assaulting me with birthday snuggles. This will surprise you, but Donald Trump continues to not-so-subtly beg sensible people to not vote for him. Yesterday he received his first intelligence briefing from the CIA. Today, he claims he wouldn’t use US intelligence if elected [Read More…]
I know I’ve posted a lot lately about how Trump’s campaign is comically disintegrating. That’s all true, but before I scoot off for voice lessons today I wanted to post a warning: Complacency is how we still lose this. Every person who thinks, “Oh, Trump is getting smashed in the polls, we got this. No [Read More…]
Let’s be generous, super generous, beyond any sane levels of generous and say that when Trump joked about 2nd Amendment supporters using violence if Clinton gets to appoint SCOTUS Justices that he was actually, as he has said, making a statement about political organizing to get him elected (even though the statement was made in the [Read More…]
I keep thinking things can’t get worse for Trump, and each time I’m wrong. Saturday Trump held a rally in Connecticut that boggled political experts everywhere. Not only did Trump say some bizarre shit (he wants to strip press credentials), as Ed Brayton captured beautifully, the rally itself made no sense. As Brayton put it: Saturday, [Read More…]
Rudy Guiliani claims there were no terrorist attacks before Obama. Forgets he was mayor of NYC on 9/11, apparently.
Today Rudy Giuliani tried to blame Obama and Clinton for terror attacks on the United States. Specifically, he said we didn’t have an terrorist attacks on our soil before Clinton took office: Uh… Dude…buddy…pal…friend…you were the mayor of New York during the attacks of September 11th!!! You were right. fucking. there! And when Guliani ran for [Read More…]
More Trump: still plummeting in polls, controversy with his campaign chair, ideological tests for immigration.
I keep saying Trump will rebound at some point, closing the gap to at least less of a blowout, but it didn’t happen this last week as Trump continued to unravel and slide in the polls (especially among young voters, where he is getting positively obliterated). In fact, conservative mouthpiece Breitbart, miffed that traditionally reliable polling [Read More…]
Trump is practically begging for the Evangelicals to save him in this election: I can smell his cologne from here, or maybe that’s just the pungent aroma of desperation. In his typically incoherent way, Donald Trump told a meeting of right-wing pastors today that was organized by the American Renewal Project, that church attendance has [Read More…]
The Smoking Gun reports (and sites such as The Hill confirm): After disappearing for a couple of weeks, the hacker “Guccifer 2.0” returned late this afternoon to provide a new headache for Democrats. In a post to his WordPress blog, the vandal–who previously provided nearly 20,000 Democratic National Committee e-mails to Wikileaks–uploaded an Excel file [Read More…]
Trump seems to think he doesn’t really need to encourage people to get out to vote (although, in his Pennsylvania speech today he did just that, encouraging them to do early voting, which Pennsylvania does not have). Trump doesn’t think he’s in too much danger of losing: Donald Trump trumpeted a confident assessment of his [Read More…]
