Here is a link I found for the top 10 Hillary supporters.  Looks like at $35 million, the #1 supporter gave more than the top 10 you just listed for Trump. Soros at $9.5 only ranked 5.

This article says that 64% of Trump's donations were $200 or less compared to 29% for Clinton.

Not to mention Trump spending $66 million of his own money. Citizens United money was channeled either to Clinton or against Trump. Twice as much money was spent trying to buy votes for Clinton.

Doctor declares Trump is in 'excellent health' after physical

"The president’s physical exam today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center went exceptionally well. The president is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday," Dr. Ronny Jackson said in the statement.

"Donald Trump must apologize for comments - African Union"

When the African Union openly and publicly condemns their Muslim members for sex with children, and clit mutilation, then I think we can begin to try and take them seriously.

If you think McCain is an honest, truthful politician, you have never seen his campaign ads. He runs as a solid conservative, falsely claiming he supports a strong border. First with getting the funding pushed through for completion of the original “fence”. How many times did he voe for the repeal of the ACA? The man is a liar and should have been recalled by Arizona voters.

I respect his service in the Navy.  His service in congress has been disgusting. Go back and study the S&L bailouts. He has been owned by lobbyists ever since getting into office.

I understand a person that is a moderate if they campaigned as a moderate. But in Texas we have a McClain wannabe in John Cornyn. Both of them will say anything to get elected and then vote exactly the opposite once they are in office.

I always considered him a moderate Republican. I can't say I have followed his voting record closely. Especially since I usually disagree with Republican politics. I know W screwed him royally. And he was one of the very few politicians who ever seemed to give straight answers when asked tough questions. Politicians always have to chase the donor money. Even worse now with Citizens United. I can think of a lot of lying politicians saying only what they need to get elected and not following through on campaign promises or believing what they say that seemed more egregious than McCain. Currently one in particular

Yet you think it is ok to be disingenuous and campaign as a conservative but vote as a moderate.  You're ok with liars then.  Why the hell are you complaining about Trump then?  Oh because he says stupid shit and doesn't enact liberal policies mainly the latter.  Got it.  I really hate slamming you down like this but dishonesty is wrong especially from a politician.  I'm an idealist, I know.  That's why I'm disgusted with most of them.

I'm sick of faggots whitewashing these scumbags like McCain. You want to discuss him? First know who he really is becuase I ain't buying the fairytale version. He was the deep state's point man for secret ISIS dealings, obviously...and that's just one of many reasons to wish death upon that fucker. How many Americans have died because of him? Do you care? He doesn't.  ::)

You voted for Obama.

I guess my question is whether you've matured politically, or whether you've merely swapped being under one version of the Fake News Media spell, only to fall under a different one.


Here's the thing about that part of the world - most of Africa, and from Turkey and the Middle East to Pakistan.  It's tribal.  It's not a political system the way we understand it.  Tribes and war lords switch alliances almost constantly - which they've been doing since the time humans organized themselves into groups.  The rank and file under the leaders are mostly illiterate, uneducated, and under the spell of ''religious'' leaders.  They do what they're told, and don't know any better.

Governments like Pakistan - all of them really - are leaders or representatives of tribes vying for power with in borders drawn fairly recently by the Western powers.  The dictator - like Assad - puts his tribal members in key positions, and hands out other roles to other tribes in an attempt to keep the peace - when he's not trying to exterminate them.

People like McCain don't understand this.  Most people don't, but it's especially impossible to convince big egos of anything.  So he goes into a situation he understands nothing about, and finds a group who that day have interests that appear to align with ours.  Some of us said at the time not to trust that group, but he was desperate to find an 'ally''.  Over time it became clear he had been wrong about them.

He's not ''the deep state's point man for secret ISIS dealings'', he's a self absorbed know-it-all with an overdeveloped ego, who sees himself as the military expert in the Senate.  Who got duped by an al-Qaeda splinter group.

Obama was the one doing what he could to help ISIS behind the scenes, not McCain.

As issued by the Whitehouse...How do we know? Because its unlikely the doctor qualified if he couldn't even spell his own name....The Trump circus can't even falsify statements convincingly.

I'm going with ABC News, or some PR intern at the White House messed up the name, not the Dr.

Where were you when Obama was falsifying documents?  Documents that were intended to show he was qualified to hold his office, not some press release about a visit to the doctor

Exactly, so why did they attribute it to the doctor if he didn't issue the statement. Its unlikely he'd use a term such as 'exceptionally well'. Trump dictated that to one of his mouth breathers, possible Miller or Conway.


And now the strawman...

McCain is a Demokkkrat, always was. His military record is irrelevant once he becomes a politician, like we can’t criticize an idiot because they served? Sorry don’t worry that way.

He was part of the Keating Five, 5 I mean 4 Democrats and 1 Republican senators who were involved in the savings and loan scandal and made millions.

He was author of the McCain Feingold campaign finance reform act of 2002 that was supposed to limit money in politics. It was like the Obamacare of campaign finance reform. In 2000, Bush/Gore spent 50 Million on the election, million. By Obama’s second term, 2012, Obama alone spend 2 Billion. In 12 years spending on the presidential election increased 240x thanks to his campaign fiancé reform act.

No idea how he ever got the nomination in 2008, he was a Demokkkrat for 8 years criticizing W for his entire presidency, then somehow gets the Republican nomination. Probably used the Hillary Clinton cheat doctrine to win the primaries as no Republican actually voted for him.

He’s a joke, and when he’s gone the country will be better for it.

... No idea how he ever got the nomination in 2008...

The same way Dole, Bush II, and Romney did.  The Fake News media chose their preferred candidate to run against, and convinced the Republican Primary voters he was ''the only one who can win''.

They did the same with Trump, by the way, with a couple of wrinkles.  1) there was a huge field, so it was easy for them to get away with only covering Trump, and due to the large field it was easy for him to then win primaries with 30% of the vote, and 2) there were some voters voting for Trump who wouldn't normally vote, or vote for the Rs.

But we still hear it now: ''Trump was the only one who could have beaten Hilary''.  As with McCain, et. al. from earlier election years, he was in reality probably the candidate least likely to win - but even he could beat her.
