Little donnie And The Devil – Update x 2

donnie

Little donnie is scaring the bejaysus out of me. I woke up to this, courtesy of The Guardian:

At a campaign town hall in Columbus, Ohio, Trump said he feared that the election would be “rigged,” in an unprecedented statement for a major party nominee in modern history.

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged, I have to be honest,” he told the crowd.

He did not elaborate but later repeated the charge on Monday night with Sean Hannity on Fox News, saying: “November 8th, we’d better be careful, because that election is going to be rigged. And I hope the Republicans are watching closely or it’s going to be taken away from us.”

Roger Stone, a long time confidante of Trump, amplified these concerns in an interview with a far right wing radio show.

Stone said: “I think we have widespread voter fraud, but the first thing that Trump needs to do is begin talking about it constantly.”

Laying out a strategy for Trump to adopt, Stone added: “He needs to say for example, today would be a perfect example: ‘I am leading in Florida. The polls all show it. If I lose Florida, we will know that there’s voter fraud. If there’s voter fraud, this election will be illegitimate, the election of the winner will be illegitimate, we will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government.’”

He also promised a “bloodbath” if the Democrats attempted to “steal” the election.

This type of incendiary rhetoric is really disturbing. He also referred to Hillary Clinton as ‘the devil.’ Now you may not like her, but that is a bit much.

I don’t know how Trump can begin to speak for Bernie Sanders and I’d like to see Sanders take little donnie down a peg or two.

From Roger Simon at Politico:

Alone in his bedroom on a dark and stormy night, Donald Trump was inventing some tax returns, when the devil appeared before him.

“Fear not,” the devil said. “You need not file tax returns. Ever. Also, I will make sure you are elected president this year and again in 2020.

“But in return, you must sell me your soul. You must betray all decent principles. You must pander, trivialize and deceive. You must gain victory by exploiting bigotry, fear, envy and greed. And you must conduct a campaign based on lies, sham, hype and distortion.”

“So?” Trump said. “What’s the catch?”

It could have been worse. The devil could have asked Trump to prove he really had “bone spurs” that kept him out of the Vietnam draft. Or prove he knew that Crimea was part of Russia. Or prove that he knew anything about the U.S. Constitution.

The Constitution! Jeez, Louise! Nobody told Trump that was going to be on the final.

 

I have got to admit that I have never followed an election like this. It is a nightmare and there are three more months to go!

UPDATE:

Courtesy of Politicususa:

Political commentator Tara Setmayer appeared on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Monday and laid down the law to Donald Trump, talking about what his attacks on the Khan family reveal about his character. What ensued was a brutal slap-down of the great pretender and cowardly schoolyard bully, Donald Trump.

ANDERSON COOPER (HOST): If this was a thought-out statement by Donald Trump and he did, to Cory’s point, have several days to think this out, he would have initially said “of course their son is a hero who sacrificed and anything I have done does not compare to that sacrifice, just as anything that I have done or anybody around here has done” —

TARA SETMAYER:: But that’s not what he did. And it’s the initial reaction by Donald Trump that is so troubling. His initial reaction was to lash out in a very petulant, vindictive way and to come out — He didn’t just say, oh, their son is a hero and move forward. He said — he actually had the audacity to compare their sacrifice and their son’s sacrifice to what he’s done as a business man. That is beyond the pale. Donald Trump is a silver-spooned draft dodger who bragged about bedding women while real men of courage were giving their lives serving this country in Vietnam. And he bragged about this and thought this was just wonderful and said that he was a brave soldier, talking about his sexual exploits. And then he goes out there and this is what he actually wants people to believe, that his sacrifice is somehow comparable? This kind of behavior and reaction by Donald Trump is the temperamentally unfit aspect of his character that is so troublesome and should be.

UPDATE 2:

The exodus begins. Courtesy of Politico:

Rep. Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.) will cast his ballot for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton this November, becoming the first Republican member of Congress to cross party lines and vote directly against Donald Trump.

“For me, it is not enough to simply denounce his comments: He is unfit to serve our party and cannot lead this country,” Hanna wrote in an op-ed for Syracuse.com published Tuesday.

  1. What? I thought the Repubs were the election rigging gerrymanderers ? “…constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government.” Plus a bloodbath?! I think I need to watch some reruns of the Democratic Convention today.

    I agree that he seems to be coming more unbalanced as the campaign stress ramps up. He truly is walking a fine line between campaign rhetoric and tyrannous talk – – and he’s walking this tightrope with a safety net under him that’s becoming untethered.

    The President, as I write, is holding a press conference with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore. Asked about Trump, he is pointing out that leading Republicans have condemned Trump’s attack on the Khans. However, this is not enough. Obama asks, why then are they still endorsing him?

    • irishgirl999 says:

      I think Donny is done. Everyone appears to be questioning his mental health. The Republicans who are still endorsing him have shown their disdain for their country. I find it unbelievable the risk they are taking.

      Obama remarked that Republican denunciations of Trump “ring hollow” as leaders in the GOP continue to endorse Trump.

      “The question that I think that they have to ask themselves is, if you are repeatedly having to say in very strong terms that what he has said is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him? What does this say about your party that this is your standard bearer?” Obama said. “This isn’t a situation where you have an episodic gaffe. This is daily and weekly where they are distancing themselves form statements he’s making.”

      He continued: “There has to be a point in which you say, ‘This is not somebody I can support for president of the United States — even if he purports to be a member of my party.'”

        I don’t know enough about the rules as to how this works, but his language and actions of the last few days are quite terrifying. Surely people like Ryan and McConnell can do something before their party explodes in a sheet of flames? Or is this what has to happen before they see the consequences of their own past actions?

    He’s a psychotic douche and should never be POTUS.
    And then there is the other choice…

    There’s really nothing you can say except the man is absolutely nuts.
