Here's my question to any who think they might have a handle on Trump, either supporters or not:Do you think that prior to moving into the White House (or shortly thereafter) Trump would undergo some kind of personality transplant that would allow him to speak like a president ((or any halfway normal person) so that he would not be treated the way the world now treats the Dear Leader in North Korea?
When does Obama get back from North Korea?
For those of you who are interested, this evening's Trump Rally starts in about fifteen, or so, minutes.
That's the one that he sent out 20,000 tickets for a theater with 1400 seats. Cute.
This goes here."A Staggering 75% Of Americans Believe In Widespread Government Corruption"Just to keep it all in one place.
I watched it on TV. I must say it changed my opinion of Trump. I've liked his ability to cut through PC bullshit but assumed most of the bluster was just to please the crowd, and that he actually had some good ideas. No more. I've never seen such a harangue to whip up an mob labeled a Presidential campaign rally. His people shouldn't be handing out baseball caps, they should be handing out black shirts.
...it's not going to be "cute" any more.
I think that it's already past that point.
I think once voting starts occurring Trump's numbers won't hold. I think the demise of the typical Republican base is exaggerated. I think the race is between Rubio or Cruz. Bush is seemingly out but the media could fabricate a comeback story, they love doing that.
I hope you're right but his momentary demise has been predicted since he announced. I heard a GOP insider say that his ground game in Iowa and NH is vastly underrated; he has a large organization in both places. As for turn-out, I figure that if they'll drive to a hear speech, they'll also drive to a caucus or polling place.
McCain finished 3rd in Iowa. I recall CNN spinning it as positive thing. The media will spin the results anyway they want. Then whatever candidate they anoint will have momentum.
It went past there the first time it happened. It got even more troubling last night when he called to "confiscate" people's coats. For him to think he has a right to take the personal property of someone who voices disagreement, even if done rudely, with him is inexcusable.
... if they were crazy enough to elect him Pres.
