Schlock and Awe: Trump Comes to Denver

Donald Trump came to Denver yesterday. His comments were all schlock, but 6,000 people, expecting to be awed, went to see him.

USA Today has the story, but it has autoplay video so I won't link to it. Among his more absurd comments:

  • He has one of the best memories of anyone in the world
  • If the U.S. elects Hillary, it will turn into another Venezuela
  • He said several times his nomination speech got better TV ratings than Hillary's
  • He didn't mention a single Republican running for office in Colorado (no down--ticket help from him)
  • Ivanka really likes Chelsea, he wishes she didn't, but what are you going to do?

    because she's a Democrat. One of the reasons given why Ivanka didn't vote for her father in the NY primary was she waited past the deadline to switch parties in a closed primary state.

    none of my friendships are based on politics.

    Did that sadistic sociopath mention the Khans? (5.00 / 1) (#4)

    He's been dumping on that Gold Star couple most of the day, while claiming that his school years at the exclusive New York Military Academy gave him more military expertise than most guys going into the U.S. armed forces.

    This loathsome and despicable creature isn't qualified to run for the local library commission, never mind the presidency. The one thing we'll conclusively learn from the November election is exactly how many stupid white people there are in this country who crave authoritarianism.


    And Gen. Allen (none / 0) (#8)

    He apparently got the crowed to condemn Gen. Allen.

    He wants to be Commander in Chief and he mocks a Gold Star mother?

     Despicable does not even begin to cover this sociopathic narcissist.

    it's right around the same number that listen to AM talk radio on a regular basis.

    The folks who've been conditioned to yearn for a candidate who pukes from the hip.

    I just saw him do this.  I've sacrificed plenty, he says.  I worked very hard.

    Seriously?  Does he even understand the meaning of the word?   Then he try's to smear the mother by saying she wasn't allowed to speak.  Followed by a clip of her on with Lawerence saying she was terrified.  Yeah, no kidding .  Probably unnerving to speak in front of 20,000 or so people live and millions at home.

    Honest to god.  What is wrong with this person.   I really didn't think so at first but I'm really starting to think he a few fries short of a happy meal.  And I'm not being funny.

    I mean, just let it go.  Or say you respect their sacrifice but disagree.  But to actually go after these poor old people who lost their son.  It's literally unbelievable.

    I over heard some conversations about this today in town.  People, white, non college, redneck people, are absolutely horrified by this.

    Trump is going to need to deliver more schlock (5.00 / 1) (#6)

    if the bi-partisan RABA Research poll is correct. After the GOP Convention they had Clinton at +5. After the Dem Convention they have Clinton at +15.

    May explain why Trump even badmouthed the Fire Marshall in Denver yesterday. Is there no one he won't attempt to degrade?

    Expect every polling outfit in the country to have a national poll coming out in the coming week.

    Seeing two political conventions more likely to make a difference in poll numbers.  Each in opposite directions.  

    Even the '92 Buchanan terd was less smelly.

    Trump on Tim Kaine: "Her running mate, Tim Kaine, who by the way did a terrible job in New Jersey, first act he did in New Jersey was asked for a $4 billion tax increase, and he was not very popular in New Jersey, and he still isn't.

    Now, maybe he was mixing up governors, Tim Kaine for Tom Keane (pronounced Kaine), or mixing up the states, New Jersey for Virginia.  But, then complicating the sorting out, is that the big tax increase was requested in New Jersey by a non-Kaine governor, Jim Florio, in 1990, who did become unpopular as a result.  He should stick to easier names and places--Putin and Russia.

    "[We're] absolutely [friends]," the 36-year-old told Extra on Thursday, July 28. "It has nothing to do with politics. We were friends before this election; we'll be friends after this election."
