I will confess that I was impressed with Trump’s fairly gracious and mature response to his second-place finish in Iowa. The fact that he also stayed off Twitter the night of his loss seemed to indicate that he — or someone in his inner circle — understood that the worst thing Trump could do is have a Howard Dean moment. At the same time, it seemed like a risky way for him to go, given that his graciousness and maturity also made him sound like a conventional politician, which is not a good look for him.
Regardless, it didn’t last. He’s now tearing up Twitter whining about how the Iowa caucuses were “stolen.” (See below). This may be an attempt to re-grab the spotlight. Every other time he wasn’t dominating the conversation three things happened: 1) His poll numbers dropped. 2) He did or said something wild to get the limelight back. 3) His poll numbers went back up.
That may be all there is to this petty whining about the Iowa results. But what’s worrisome is that it also seems consistent with the longstanding fear that Trump may bolt from the GOP and run as an independent. It’s not hard to see how he could continue in this vein about how the system conspired against him, he wasn’t treated fairly, the party is rigged, blah, blah and blah. The logical conclusion to such complaints would be to take his marbles and go home or run as a third party candidate. While I’d love to see Trump drop out, neither argument is very good for a party that needs Trump’s supporters a lot more than it needs Trump himself. Fortunately, right now at least, Trump isn’t complaining about the GOP so much as he is about Ted Cruz. The worrying sign would be if/when he generalizes the fraud charge to the whole party or the system itself.
Which is what a good many of us have suspected would be his “trump” card, to throw the election to that evil, disgusting, criminal, lying bitch Hillary – to whom Trump has donated YUGE amounts of money, and whom Trump praised as a senator from NY, and as a choice for SecState.
If the US ends up with either Hillary or Sanders winning this election, then it will be end of the Republic, and the new age of tyranny.
God help us all.
I’ve read his books, listened to what he’s said, seen what he’s done.
There will be no third party run.
Unlike some in the Republican party who have mentioned a third party run if Trump gets the nomination.
Trump says “So I’m watching a game yesterday,” said Trump. “What used to be considered a great tackle, a violent head-on [tackle], a violent – if that was done by Dick Butkus, they’d say he’s the greatest player. If that were done by Lawrence Taylor – it was done by Lawrence Taylor and Dick Butkus and Ray Nitschke, right?
(Meaning: Why would I pay $150.00 per seat, $ 100.00 for the Jersey, $50.00 for parking and $120.00 for shittie food- too watch a bunch of soft men try to be MEN like this above. You made allot of money, how many Vets have died, vs NLF Players on the field? What is the PAY differential for LOSING your LIFE to Defend America vs Playing in the NLF? You want to be Tuff-Ruck up!!
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was not pleased with what he saw either, and on Friday in his annual “State of the NFL” address, Goodell suggested that there may be more changes coming to the Pro Bowl in the future. (Meaning: You watched, I watched, it’s BS. Play NLF Level football, or “do what you got to do” but NO Money Baby!! Soldiers don’t get to Bullshit their JOB!!)
Patton: Men, all this stuff you’ve heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans traditionally love to fight. All “REAL” Americans love the sting of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooter, the fastest runner, big league ball players, the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. I wouldn’t give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed. That’s why Americans have never lost, and will never lose a war… because the very thought of losing is hateful to Americans. (Meaning: Lead, Follow, or go Get the Hell out of the Way, Capitalism=Freedom=Rule of Law=All Men created Equal)
In his first visit to an American mosque Wednesday,
President Obama condemned “inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslim Americans that has no place in our country.”
But “What is the meaning of “Free Speech? Smart, Just, and God (Whomever) thinking People don’t express inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslims Americans” .
Who is saying “inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslims Americans”
If not defending America is not worth the “Oath” why give the Damn thing?
Impeach the Dem Party, “Kill the body and the head will die.”
Joe Frazier quote””
Jonah and Donald Trump have not kissed and made up after the slam on Trump that led to Trump joking that Jonah needed somebody to buy his pants for him.
It has been all downhill from there.
Even Jonah’s mom, who runs Lucianne.com has started citing liberal rags as long as they trash Donald Trump.
For Jonah to pretend he knows what Donald Trump might do next is pretty funny.
If anyone is on the ”outs” with the Trump inner circle it is any NRO writer whose name grace their Against Trump issue.
If Hillary (and the GOPe) steals the election away from Sanders and Trump or Cruz, with the super-delegates, I foresee a four way race with two strong challengers to the two major party candidates (Trump as an independent and Sanders likely under the Green Party’s banner).
