    Fearing defeat in November, Trump is reportedly looking into an acting career. To release Pink Flamingoes earlier would offend his low-end, revival tent following. One scene in Hairspray requires that Trump wear a second wig loaded with curlers and take some ironing lessons. Tutu, anyone?
    My wife swears that whenever Trump rounds his lips this would-be president resembles inflatable dolls certain stores sell to people who can’t find human partners. “Add bright red lipstick and there you go!” she says. For myself, I think Trump with his bloated, red face always looks constipated, as if he were straining to squeeze one out. Does he hide a portable toilet behind those podiums?

  2. 176 Reasons Donald Trump Shouldn’t Be President

    Every few generations, we Americans are called upon to defend our country. To defend it not so much from foreign dictators or war or terrorism, but from those here who have no commitment to progress or democracy or representative government—no commitment to anything except their own out-of-control minds and the bottomless pits of their egos. Our society has thrown up these people before: Joseph McCarthy. George Wallace. Father Coughlin. Jefferson Davis. Aaron Burr. The Know-Nothings. The Blacklisters. The America-Firsters. And we have always thrown them out.

  3. 1. Independent candidate: Trump may have been ‘blackmailed’ by Putin
    2. Putin’s View Of Trump: A Pushover, A Weaker Version Of Neville Chamberlain. The latest joke in our absurd presidential campaign is that Russian President Vladimir Putin sees Donald Trump as a strong leader. This is causing belly-laughs in the Kremlin.

  4. A lot of talk that Trump is going to beat Hillary. We, the People, are tired of elitist politicians and the rigged system. It’s time for change.
    Putin ate my homework

    • Looking down on cross-burning hillbillies who loved Joe McCarthy in their youth, the kind who roll on the floor and throw their arms in the air in their churches, voted for Nixon and George Wallace, etc., love Vladimir Putin, etc. isn’t being elitist.
      Abe Lincoln, FDR and Harry Truman were insiders and “establishment” whereas. Hitler, Lenin and Stalin were outsiders and non-establishment like yourself. They tended to attract the same kind of lowlifes as yourself, Assad and Milosevic. If you were Iranian, you’d have joined the Basilj and would be kissing Khamenei’s feet.

  5. Trump may beat Hillary in some polls , he can do it in a televised show but never in election.
    It will be a short election night in November!
