I mean, between statements like this from Chris Christie and everything else uttered by Donald Trump, the Republican party has basically devolved into thuggery and piggishness. There’s no other way to put it.
Kanye West is egocentric, delusional, money-hungry, ragingly capitalist and deeply out of touch with normal people. Yeah, frankly, I don’t see how he is different than anyone else who wants to be President of America.
We now have Republican candidates who are openly saying that, even if you are born in the USA, you may not have the right to be an USA citizen. Given the prior Supreme Court case history, this means that those of us who are immigrants are even more liable to be declared non-citizens than those who were born here. So, when I look at the Republican statements on the 14th amendment and anchor babies, it pushes me even more toward voting a straight Democratic ticket.
Not too long ago, it seemed like the Grand Old Party was set to become an increasingly welcome place for libertarianism. After years of enthusiastic Ron Paul presidential campaigns, his son Rand, a bit less hardline than his father, was for many people the most exciting candidate of 2016. For hopeful libertarians, the GOP was a pathway to the mainstream, and the success of the Kentucky Senator would determine how ready the party was to embrace the fringe ideology. If I were a libertarian today, I would be seriously questioning that earlier optimism.
Hillary is one of the few people that isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with Mr. Trump and call him out for his disgusting comments. He may have bodyguards that kick out journalists in his fantasy Fascist news conference, but I wouldn’t want to mess with the Secret Service :p Hillary will never be intimidated by Mr. Trump. And the way she balances between mocking him and calling out his hate is the perfect way to destroy him politically. I can’t wait for the Clinton machine to kick into high-gear and really hit him where it hurts. This clown needs to go bankrupt a few more companies and make some more products in China.
Mr. Trump inherited his success from his families wealth [200+ million dollars], unlike the Clintons who built their success side-by-side, dating back to their days at Yale Law and Hillary’s work at the Children’s Defense Fund. The Clintons, not Trump, embody the American dream of working your way from the bottom to the top [and they are the only couple that has ever had a chance of reaching the top twice]. Trump was born on third base but thinks he hit a triple.
Oh, and a lot of the media and polls being released about Bernie are by right-wing organizations trying to sew discord among Democrats. Please look at who conducted the polls and the origins of these stories/sources.
Donald Trump claims to “cherish” women, but his actions – and words – suggest otherwise.
Fox News’ Megyn Kelly called him out on his sexist behavior during the GOP debate on August 6, reminding him: “You have called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs’, and ‘disgusting animals.“
As one of Trump’s security detail approached Ramos, the Univision anchor continued to speak, saying, “You cannot deport 11 million
people.” Ramos was referring to Trump’s proposal to deport all people in
the country illegally before allowing some of them to return. Ramos was later allowed back in.
Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric has pushed immigration to the forefront
of the Republican primary campaign. Since no candidate besides Sen.
Lindsey Graham (SC) supports a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million
undocumented immigrants already in the United States, there has been
virtually no serious discussion of how to reform the immigration system.
Instead, the GOP immigration debate has focused instead on a variety of
offensive, unrealistic, and cruel proposals aimed at reducing the number of Latinos living in the U.S.
