    Does anyone else find it odd that Trump is not really going after on Hillary on her bad history?

    Yes, he calls her "Lying Hillary" and states that she would be a "terrible president." But come on people, HRC is attacking his record point by point, and in great detail, but still, Trump says nothing much beyond, "Bill is a philanderer."  Seriously? Just what is going on here?  Trump could be tearing her record apart ALL day long! What is he waiting for? Even today, he stated that Hillary's email scandal was "poor judgment more than anything else."  Are you kidding me? There are times when I wonder if he really wants to be president. Why is he not tearing her into tiny little pieces?

    Not odd if its all rigged. Bernie is giving her a free pass too.

      If it's rigged, then we're talking a lot of if's. How was Trump to know that he would get this far or that he could hand the nomination to Hillary. Do you think that's why he bashes Republicans more than Democrats? The whole thing is just bizarre.

      savvydating & PhoenixV are both correct. It is all political kabuki. There is no direct vote for prez. See https://youtu.be/_S2G8jhhUHg on the byzantine labyrinth of rules. Remember 2012 GOP convention: changed rules to shut out  Ron Paul!

      Should there be a Peekabuki? OK, it was funny till the words hit the screen.

    “Hillary Clinton, I think, is a terrific woman. I mean I’m a little biased because I’ve known her for years. I live in New York, she lives in New York, I’ve known her and her husband for years and I really like them
    both a lot. And I think she really works hard,” Trump said.

    “I just like her. I like her and I like her husband.”

    “I’m going to be one of the first to ask Hillary to run in 2016,” she said. “I think she would be incredibly well-poised to be our next Democratic president. I think she’s extremely well prepared. Her experience as Secretary of State has not only elevated her stature and experience, but she’s proven she’s someone who can get things done and I think she’d be an outstanding candidate.”

    LOL

      Ha! It's one of those situations---do I laugh or do I cry? And now he's willing to debate Sanders & give the $10 mil to "women's healthcare."  What kind of healthcare would that be, Hillary---I mean, Donald?

      She bailed on NY, she doesn't live with her husband, they are poor examples of a married couple. She failed in 2008 and spent two yrs doing her personal agenda, and ignoring NY. She failed as sec of states. No qual or accomplishments.

      Tell that to Trump; his words, not mine.

      Brad, Island Bites know all of that. He was quoting Trump. Those were Trump's actual words.

      Thanks Savvydating.
      My point is that it needs context. Would you want someone to take your speech without attaching its context. I guess I just don't see much humor in this election. smile

    Sorry about the typo above, folks. I think you get the gist, which is: when will Trump go after Hillary once and for all? I'd like to believe in him, but he's got to give me something to work with. Playing softball with Hillary just ain't cutting it for me. If he continues to give her a free pass, she will win. One thing I know for sure is that I do not want Hillary to win. Come on Donald, show us you've renounced your days as a Democrat once and for all. Start talking about Hillary's corrupt record the way she is talking about yours...

    Why should Trump give Hillary heads up while Sanders is still in Hillary's way. Let Sanders tangle with her. Then after the primary dust settles, then you will see Trump take Clinton to task.

    Trump didn't FAIL the country as a member of the senate in the 2008 economic meltdown. Trump didn't lie about Benghazi, or use his private email server instead of the government server. Because he wasn't the government service, much less politics.

    Sanders and anyone in the congress before or after 2008 didn't do their job protecting the people. What Trump did in his business is a totally different world than that of politicians.

    Trump not being a politician is therefore a super plus, and living in the real world Trump has insights not known in the world of politicians.

    Trump's strategy has gotten him to clinch the primary, so how can anyone question his political tactics.Neither Clinton nor Sanders have been successful so far.

      Hillary would be a bad president just as she was a horrible secretary of state. But she is going after Trump and he is not going after her. He even sided with her in stating the email thing was merely "poor judgment" What is that all about?

      Please reread my comment, as I thought I mentioned what it was all about?
      Strategy.

      The strategy is to let Sanders be the bad guy, until it is only HilDon. instead of HilSanDon. See I told I don't have nay humor about the election. You could be right, I am just guessing. He never returns my calls!

      I thought you said this election season isn't funny? Guess we'll see who wins "the fight." So far, Clinton has thrown the most blows.

    Why, when her own campaign is putting out ads that end up helping Trump, according to Dilbert creator Scott Adams?
    Or the fact that Sanders is winning more primaries in this final stretch?
    Sun Tzu says winning means knowing when not to fight, and he has no reason to engage her when she undermines herself and is fighting someone else.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YINooPV7jM Not a helpful ad. Two days ago he was asked about the general inspectors report on Hillary's email. All he said was, "She showed bad judgment."  The opportunity was there and he let it go by. Not wise.

    Something to consider. I'm not much for conspiracies, but Hillary's largest private donor eight years ago was Trump.

    Now it might be as simple as waiting to see how much more damage Hillary can do, or he's simply trying to shore up the Republican base behind him, and so he's focusing on that.

    But one of my first qualms with Trump was his funding of several Democrats over the years.

      Yes, that has bothered me as well. In New York, you follow the money, I guess, and Democrats have plenty of it. I also wonder if he entered the race solely to come out of it with more wealth and opportunities, as opposed to becoming President..,

      Well, he is a major publicity hound, see his involvement on Wrestlemania, so, yes, entirely possible
