Could Trump primary supporters be having 2nd thoughts

    The primaries were mostly done by the time Trump made statements about Judge Curiel who will preside over the Trump University Fraud case.  Trump gleefully used the terrorist massacre at Pulse Nightclub to congratulate himself.  He suggested that it would not have happened if patrons had had guns.  Can you imagine a club full of people, drinking and having fun and then hearing shots, pulling their guns and shooting all over the place.  Who would be left standing?

    Have we ever had a president that had to be "bleeped" because of his foul language?  He didn't become more presidential after becoming the presumptive nominee.  He got worse and said, "I won't change!"  Can you trust him to help you individually or your family?

    A guy picked a frozen snake up from the middle of the road.  He placed the snake in front of the fireplace to warm up.  The snake warmed up and bit him.  The guy asked, "Why did you do that?"  The snake said, "You knew I was a snake all the time."

      Yes, his poll numbers are tanking, first because of his racist comments about Judge Curiel, then further because of his shallow and self-congratulatory comments after the Orlando shooting.

      Trump's speeches, tweets, and interviews speak for themselves. All you have to do is listen to him and decide for yourself. He can't stop talking or tweeting so there is plenty of direct source material for voters to judge his intellect (or lack thereof), diplomacy (or lack thereof) , policy positions (or lack thereof), and leadership skills (authoritarian?).

    First of all, people who legally carry guns are NOT permitted to be drinking alcohol when armed.  Law abiding citizens who have gun training are responsible.

    Nothing Trump said about the terrorist attack on the gay night club was "gleeful".   To say something like that is ignorant, stupid, totally disrespectful and void of all truth.  Its disgusting!  Listen to the lies of the devil and spew some more lies while ignoring the truth...the media is full of it.

    I cannot even comment on the rest of this post, its just silly. 
    Its a joke, right? ... "congratulate himself"? 

    Added
    One of the best things a true friend ever told me was 'get your head out of your a$$'.  So! Trump warned about more terrorist attacks (again)...trying to tell people to get their heads out their a$$, in the nicest possible way. He was RIGHT! ... Is that congratulating himself in your mind? 

    Trump has not been "bleeped" because of foul language.  Anti-Trump ads are NOT honest.  Anyone who believes that is deceived, that is what dishonest ads are intended for (brainwashing).

    There are six (6) things the Lord hates, and I hate them too!

      I did see an article speaking about a disagreement between Trump and the head of the NRA. Trump said that if there were someone else armed in the tavern, the shooter could have been neutralized before all the carnage.

      But the NRA guy said that he would never advocate the carrying of a firearm in a tavern, for obvious reasons...

      I'm looking for the most recent bleep of last week.  In a rant about the Orlando terrorist, he said if others had guns, they could return fire and the S.O.B is dead.

      Here is an older one (March)

      Quite a few are referenced if you Google Trump cursing bleeped

      Colorfulone, He has said and done so much, no one needs to lie about him.  It is documented by multiple sources.

      This is not to bash you.  It is to direct you to sources that prove he is not mature enough to be president.  We don't even know if he is as successful as he says he is.  Bilking people out of money probably added quite a bit to his fortune.

      Let's hope every legally eligible vote will have 2nd, 3rd, and 4th thoughts in the nearly five months that remain before their votes are cast.  Hillary for her gender, or Trump for his gender, are certainly not the keys to making such a serious decision.  They are both caucasians, so that is not a choosing point either.  Criminality might be, but we can leave that to any fair court to decide. Ambition?  Both have that in spades.  Personal wealth?  Only they would think that that matters.  Education, experience, sincerity, approachableness, role model,  competence, political correctness, leadership, energy, health, perhaps style?  All those can be weighed along with personal preferences and gut appraisals of the two, and any other serious contestants.

    Hmmm, maybe Trump worshipers don't think dropping F bombs in speeches constitutes swearing?  Or s_of a b_?  Or sh__?

    You know, Trump does keep lowering the bar for minimum standards of decency.  Perhaps his supporters like his swearing and think it's cool?  Or tough?  How about intelligent and thoughtful? 

    I mean, they loved it when he talked about his penis size during a debate.  Ate that sh__ right up!  And when he ridiculed the disabled reporter?  Cheered and clapped!  When he implied a female reporter who asked a tough question was on her period?  Praised him for his "toughness" (that one is extra puzzling, but okay).

    I think I'm seeing a pattern here.  Trump supporters love bullying, as long as it's directed at someone else, even the handicapped.  They cheer F bombs and name calling, as long as it's not directed toward them.  They don't care if their candidate can articulate policies, as long as he has a big D____.

    And Trump supporters wonder why we find them to be amusing (when we're being polite) or mean-spirited (when we're being honest).

        “If some of those wonderful people had guns strapped right here, right to their waist, or right to their ankle and this son of a bitch comes out and starts shooting…” Trump said to tremendous applause.
        “And one of the people in that room happened to have it and goes ‘BOOM BOOM’ you know what that would have been a beautiful sight folks, that would have been a beautiful sight.”

          Maybe to someone who is looking to find fault with anything Trump might say, he digs his grave.  I personally felt the same way about the "SOB" getting killed, who shot over 100 Americans. I guess I didn't think anything of calling him that, it was mild for what that animal did.  It would have been a beautiful sight if some people were armed and trained to shot to kill so the "SOB" was dead before he had a chance to go jihad in the night club and murder 49 people.   

          Thankfully, Trump has the balls to say what every true American patriot felt in their gut but maybe didn't say.  I'm sure their were plenty that did...because it was an act of terrorism...not just on those people, but on all of us.   

          I'm glad Trump isn't politically correct and offends people who have a spirit of offence, its kind of funny in a sad way how they get triggers over words, but not a terrorist'[s actions.

            The point is that no one lied on him.  Everything cited was straight from Trump.

            He's a billionaire and can say things and do things other people cannot - not that they should.  He sets a bad example for children.  People going on job interviews can't talk or act like that or they will never get hired.  He was fortunate enough to work for his father and never had to meet a standard for a job probably until now.

            You mentioned things that God hates, with lies being one.  There were no lies told.  The truth will set you free.

              Unlike you, I don't question the patriotism of people I disagree with. I'm sure he has a very nice family. That doesn't mean he is fit to be president.

              By the way, this is the new tactic. See what a nice family Trump has? Saw the Trump Train spokesperson gushing about Trump's lovely family on CNN today. You picked it up quick. Good soldier.

                If Trump has the support he has due to voter anger at our current political situation, doesn't that indicate the same-old same-old isn't cutting it?

              Horseback, those rants about Judge Curiel were not one liners AND when Jack Tapper followed up with question for clarity, Trump dug in.

              The scenario about people (drinking in the club) having guns to shoot back at the "S.O.B.", there was no editing.

              If you can show us straight, unedited text, I'm willing to read it.

              BTW, I'm not liberal nor conservative.  I consume coverage because I want to be informed.  As of now, I will have to write in a candidate for president.
