With his numbers crumbling with women, the Republican Establishment realizes that there's no way they can give him the nomination of their party. He finally offended one group too many with his statements against Megyn Kelly, a woman's right to choose, and Cruz's wife.
The abortion issue where women must be punished, is the one way over the top.
After Trump closes doors and builds wall to many free economy countries around the world. He wants to shut down the vagina too.
People have the right to their own bodies and what they put into themselves too. Maybe Trump should be put into a limited box before he is allowed to put the rest of us into box by fear.
Trump has consistently proven himself to be a petty little man who has no respect for women. I haven't noticed that change his popularity. And, I'll be honest, I was offended by his stupid statement about women needing to be punished (if abortion became illegal). I rolled my eyes when he backed off of that statement and said that the doctors should be punished. I shook my head at his inconsistency when he later said the laws should be left as they are. But, what that means to me is that the guy has never bothered to think about the issue. He doesn't care one way or the other. He doesn't have a moral stand on the matter and is simply attempting to say what he thinks the people want to hear on the matter. Although I would have liked to have him admit, up front, that it doesn't matter to him one way or the other; it is refreshing for someone who is running as a Republican to not be up in our faces on what he thinks we should do with our bodies.
Btw, he also said: "It was a hypothetical question. A lot of people thought my answer was excellent, by the way. There were a lot of people who thought that was a very good answer. It was a hypothetical question. I didn’t see any big deal and then all of a sudden there was somewhat of a storm. And you know, it’s interesting, this morning I’m hearing two hosts on television that were critical and they said, "We really thought his first answer was very good." Because you can’t win. "We thought it was good, what was wrong with his first answer?" And I heard a pastor, who is a fantastic pastor, saying, "Well, you know, if you think about it, his first answer is right."
Trump is just a clown, an airhead with an inflated ego.
I agree that Trump is a clown with an inflated ego. That's nothing new for politicians. Can you give me your reference for you quote of Soon after the release of the transcript, the Trump campaign issued a statement clarifying Trump’s remarks.
“Mr. Trump gave an accurate account of the law as it is today and made clear it must stay that way now — until he is president,” the campaign said in a written statement. “Then he will change the law through his judicial appointments and allow the states to protect the unborn. There is nothing new or different here.”
I can't find that anywhere and it appears his campaign website doesn't have any mention of abortion.
I still think the guy has never spent a moment thinking about the issue and doesn't appear to care one way or the other about it. Which is fine, if his actions (if elected) reflect that position; by taking no action on the matter.
I think my biggest fear of Trump is no one knows what he really thinks. He comes off as a buffoon because he honestly just opens his mouth and says what he thinks people want to hear. And he'll flip flop until he thinks he has gotten that right. But, how is that any different from most any politician? I'm not sure it is fair to hold this crook to a higher standard than we hold for the other crooks running for that office.
AND "Drumpf" Trump along with all CONservative Republicans including Paul Ryan, Mitch MConnel, Mutt Romney etc, are also being "Taken DOWN" by Hispanics, Asians, African Americans, the GAY Community, Senior Citizens & all RATIONAL Americans etc etc.....His HATE & Disdain for Minorities & Women in general is appalling to watch although in line with the Republican Philosophy, especially his beliefs about "Punishing Women" for being Custodians of their OWN Bodies.....This Demented, Mentally Disturbed CLOWN will NEVER be Allowed anywhere NEAR our "Nuke BUTTON" for obvious reasons ~
His Blatant HATE, Divisiveness, Racism, Bigotry, GAY Bashing, Woman Bashing, BIZARRE Strange Irrational Behavior is Unprecedented ~ Even George Wallace of the 1960's would be envious ~
Unprecedented to my KNOWLEDGE ~ The U.K. Circulating a PETITION to keep Trump the Hell out of ENGLAND ~ Almost 600,000 Signatures ALREADY ~ That's how bad it is around the GLOBE ~ ~ How many MORE Petitions will POP-Up? ~
Women love Trump. Don't know where you got that information from. Probably from that mormon cruz and the fake media? Megyn Kelly was on Howard Stern disgracing herself. I didn't see Trump around talking like a pig to her. I believe it was her talking like a pig with no cue-cards. She offended herself. I think you may be falling for the propaganda too much.
Women love Trump? Have you not listened to the man? He has said so many things that are anti-woman is impossible for him to win the general election.
I would say that intelligent women are highly offended by the guy. Maybe, women who look at women as inferior to men have no problem with him voicing what is already their opinion?
The Vast MAJORITY of Women Despise Trump for very good reasons ~ According to one POLL 73% of ALL Women have a "NEGATIVE" View of him & that number appears to be getting Worse as time progresses ~
"Drumpf" Trump is a Dangerous CLOWN a Demented Individual who is Un-Fit for the Presidency but continues to embark upon a pathetic self -serving Freak Show "Publicity STUNT" ~ Everyone on the INSIDE understands this ~
1000's of Plaintifs have already charged him with FRAUD in his most recent Law Suit and it could conceivably Compel him to pay MILLIONs in Dammages, if of course he's got that kind of Hard CASH ~ Win or Lose, he has a LONG History of Frauduent Activity even perpetrated AGAINST OUR Senior Citizens, a record which would RIVAL Bernie Madoff, NOT Good and PRISON just might be his next STOP ~
The sad thing is that if you substituted the word Clinton for Trump (or Drumph as you are prone to do) it would still be true. Except for thousands of people suing her. We can't sue politicians who take advantage of their office, with one foot on each side of the line of the law.
That's what women are for Trump... Even his then 1 year old daughter.
Yep, Trump is consistent in his objectification of women. Doesn't matter if it's an opposing candidate like Fiorina, a journalist (okay, I'm using the term loosely here) like Megyn Kelly, his own wife, or his own infant daughter. Women are objects to be judged. Doesn't matter that he himself looks like an ugly orange orangutan (yeah, I just judged him on his looks).
Trump's rates women from 1 to 10.
How would you rate Trump?
That's a perfect description of the guy.
The most highly intelligent women I know hate political correctness for one thing . Lets use an example ; Trump offends a beautiful , intelligent Meghan Kelly from Fox News , Hillary offends intelligent women who watched her stand by an abuser husband for an entire marriage and political career !
Which of these women is the more intelligent ?
Another stupid conservative analogy, ahorseback?
Comparing apples with hand granades are we?
You are not privy to the Clinton's marriage affairs. It is not anyones' business but theirs. But again, that is inane nature of conservative thinking? Trumps statements were clearly abusive without any need for smoke and mirrors...
That's when I lost respect for her. I remember her making some comment about not being Tammy Wynett. But, she is. She stayed for personal gain. Same difference.
That is your perception. You cannot say that is a fact. Maybe they have an open marriage. Who knows? Honestly, it's none of anyone's business.
When you are a public figure and you publicly degrade another person because of your opinion of their reaction to a similar circumstance then you open the floor to public reaction to your own choices. Hypocrisy rarely garners a favorable response.
Sorry, if she had kept family business within her family I'd agree.
It's kind of hard to keep your family business within your family when it's dragged across the national stage by your enemies. Like I've repeatedly said, I'm no Hillary fan, but this business of her husband's affairs is now her and Bill's business and no one else's. It's been analyzed and investigated ad nauseum. That said, you're entitled to judge people however you want, and I'm entitled to think that judging her on this issue when there are so many more important issues to judge (like her vote on Iraq) is a bit picayune.
Picayune. I like that word. Although, in fairness, I said that was when I first lost respect for her. There has been so much over the years since then that has caused me to cement my opinion; but her history was brought up by someone other than me and I commented. If you don't like the fact that I tend not to forget things I apologize. That's just me. It was an indication of her character at the time.
But, seriously. Dragged across by your enemies? Anyone that low class....anyone that bizarrely unable to comprehend decency...anyone who wants to redefine the word 'is' in order to pretend he didn't lie....and then for his wife to make a smarmy barb at some poor country music singer...as if that would somehow make it all better. Get real. They dragged themselves into the mud and wallowed in it.
I don't have a problem with it. I can even understand it. People have their own unique yardsticks for what matters to them. Obviously, many people feel similarly.
Well, when you use quaint little words like picayune it does appear that you are expressing a problem with it. That's ok. I just find hypocrisy to be a really really big thing. I know all politicians are hypocrites but I do wish they weren't.
I mean it's picayune to me I don't have a problem with your position, as I assume you apply your standards equally to everyone. :-)
I do try to apply the same standards across the board. And I do get what you are saying about it is their business. Had she kept her mouth shut instead of digging her heels into the back of someone she didn't even know, in order to attempt to rise above the embarrassment of the situation, we'd all be left to find some way to think the best. Not see the worst.
I feel that perhaps I offended you when it was not my intent to disparage your point of view, but to express how I feel about Hillary's dedication to her marriage. Maybe I don't know or remember what you are referring to when you said she dug her heels into the back of someone she didn't know. Maybe if I did know or remember, I would feel differently?
All that said, I know that Hillary Clinton is a cunning politician and I wouldn't put it past her to denigrate someone for her own gain.
ONLY in "Republican PRETEND-Land" would anyone even consider COMPARING an Intelligent, Highly Qualified indvidual like Sec. Hillary Clinton to a Loser CON-Man like Trump ~
If you actually think they will ALLOW this "SPRAY-Tan Swindler" anywhere near our "Nuke BUTTON", you might wanna' "THINK Again" ~

Hillary , Trump , Sanders , All of them reflect far more about the state of mind of the average American voter ! I am personally ashamed of the demise in voter maturity just in the last eight years + or - , The total voter naiveté ,it all began with the politically correct nomination of Obama , un-vetted , unqualified , un organized . And it just rolls on and on ............
Do you really think there will even be an election? You sure about that?
If Trump , or any candidate , has the popular vote , so then should they- he - she have the electoral college's vote , the American Voter then should even have to hold it's collective nose's and vote for Trump . Stop letting the media decide who YOU should vote for , stop letting the GOP , DNC decide who you should vote for !
More than that - Stop letting your collective voter Apathy getting you into these situations where you didn't care or even vote for years , thereby getting us into these political dumps !
Trump has the popular vote .
Stop letting the system" rig it " for your lack of responsibility .
Is this a democracy or not ?
The system is there to protect the party. While he will have the vote in the primary, the party is well aware that he will get trounced in the general election. So the party is looking to put up Kasich, who polls better against the democratic nominee. Why the dems don't put Sanders up is beyond me, he polls the best for them.
As we have all come to begin understanding the electoral college , we find or at least we should find that the system is far too complicated in state rules , each state being different . Isn't this indicating more and more that the individual voter is useless ! The system is rigged . If you begin looking at each states rules you begin to understand that the rules are written to NOT be understood !
And all of the rules--- to protect the two parties alone , not the voices of the people . It needs to be unified and equalized or all out abolished .
It is quite disheartening to see that Bernie Sanders won by a 11-12% margin in Wyoming, yet will end up getting fewer delegates than Hillary from that state.
Well, you know I don't want either one in office but you're right , Bernie is getting shellacked by the system , And , the democratic electoral system is even worse than the repubs, at least I think it is ! He won New Hampshire , my home state , and the SUPER delegates went to her ! How unfair is that . All the more reason I believe we need a major voter revolution in America , if not a real one !...............:-]
You may be right that we need an American voter revolution, but I don't think the Democrat, (or Republican), delegate process should be one of the reasons for it.
If the process is considered as what it is - a party mechanism to select the party's presidential candidate, not a general public vote to determine the party's candidate - then any unfairness is only applicable to party participants - not the American voter in general.
The mentioned unfairness of the autonomy of the Democrat Super Delegates is only unfair to Democrat candidates. (and perhaps Democrat voters with different party views). It has no direct effect on non-Democrats.
It's just party rules, and Democrats can change them if they want. As can the Republicans for their party rules.
Oops... I think you are talking about the party's delegate systems. The Electoral College system is about the presidential electors each state has for the general election.

How wide spread is the message that seems to come from the Republican Right that among the parties involved in a rape crime, the status of the woman is less important that that of the offender or that of the unborn child? See for yourself, here http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2012...
