    Bloomberg was right. Trump is a con man. The question is which will you prefer? A con man or a liar?

    It is odd that this election cycle has given us two flawed candidates. You have the former mayor of NYC calling Trump a con man, yet he endorse the DNC hand picked Hillary Clinton - a proven liar. What a choice?

    Speak of con men, Bloomberg was a Democrat. He switched to Republican solely to win the election for Mayor of NYC. Now he's what? Back with the Democrats? Oh, no ! He's not a con man. His message should have been (and really is) instead of "I'm a New Yorker and recognize a con man," I'm a con man so I know one when I see him!

    All those who support Hillary are liars, con men and deceivers exactly like her, that's why they are willing to support her. This is no secret! Throw in the lying, corrupt media and the Cabal is complete. the Democrat Cabal, anti God, anti morals, anti constitution, anti America and pure globalist serving the God of this world, SATAN.

    All this we know, it is not disputable. Trump a con-man? This we don't know. What evidence there is could be called circumstantial and as far as how he will govern, only unproven accusations. Prove he is a con man with respect to the presidency? There is only one way to prove that...elect him. What do we have to lose? Either elect a known, proven liar and pathetic con woman (pathetic at coning people) or take a chance on an unknown who says he wants to make America great again and give him the chance to prove it.

    I don't know about anyone else but it seems to me this is a far better chance than the one America took in 2008 only to discover they elected a black con man and leader of the Democrat cabal. Many can say "I told you so" about Barack Obama, I'd like  to see how many will being saying the same thing after a Trump Presidency.

    I've always been under the impression that a con man was a liar just referred to using a softer word. What you really have liar vs liar. Now that that's cleared up, what's new about liars in politics?

      So your opinion is that because politicians lie we should expect and accept it? See this is why we have lying politicians. Voters simply aren't engaged, are gullible masses who welcome any lie that tickles their ears with what they want to hear.

    After last night's DNC convention, It has become apparent, Trump is out of his league.  He is faking it until he makes it. And I hope with all my heart, he doesn't make it.  He is one scary dude that cant sit at the adult's table.

    He is a loose cannon that has no filters in his brain or his mouth.  If he were in a court of law and said many of the things that he has said, the judge would tell the jury to strike those things as evidence. 

    He just runs off at the mouth with sound bites so the people can pick and choose what flavor they want to fit their needs. Just like 31 flavors ice cream. It's all bad for you, but choose a flavor, because it taste so good, but the sugar is bad for you!

    He should be tried for treason about what he said about Hillary's email and Russia and even China.  I don't want this man (idiot) anywhere near my nuclear codes.

      Do you deny she lied to the aAmerican people and to Congress and to the dead soldier's mom?
      How about the Clinton affairs with multiple women that she try to attack both verbally and intimidate with her goons?

      Even if she did lie, which she didn't, what is the consequences of Benghazi today and her emails, other than you and your cohorts want to chastise her?  How about Bush and Cheny, they lied about Iraq and thousands were killed, not just 4 Americans?

      You want officials  to do the right thing. Right is a relative term.  What is right for you may not be right for others.  What is right for me is to stop these foolish accusations, What is right for you is to send Hillary to prison.

    Bloomberg is a failed politician, and a democrat. He is envious and jealous of Trump because Trump succeeded where Bloomberg failed.

    NYC and NY State are democrat controlled areas. So, Bloomberg the good democrat would endorse Hillary Clinton if she was in prison.

    A con-man by the very definition is a liar. A con-man swindles you by means of deception or fraud.  So are you saying that in the private sector it's "just business" and OK?

    The very definition of a politician is one who seeks personal or partisan gain, often by scheming and maneuvering.

    Deception, fraud, scheming and maneuvering - my preference? Just kill me now.  Let me die before I see the destruction of the country I love so much.  sadsadsadsadsad

    Jack,
    A con man is a liar, in fact everything Trump says is more lie than truth.

    As for Hillary, everyone should read the Exculpatory Facts: (tending to prove that somebody is free from guilt or blame) http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/20/us/po … .html?_r=1
    instead of listening to the Republicans calling her a liar all the time.  In fact every time they say liar they should be looking in a mirror.

    Monica: from your comment below it appears that you think Monica was an innocent little girl and President Clinton a pedophile.  Fact is she was twenty four (24) 6 years over 18.  She went to the White House for the sole purpose of seducing President Clinton, I doubt that most "MEN" would have turned her down, (would you?) and I do believe that she was hired to do exactly what she did and as proof she saved her dirty blue dress, then went to the White House gossip and told her about what she did, then she gave the dirty dress to Ken Starr, who was hired to destroy President Clinton to get him out of office.
    Isn't it Ironic that Ken Starr lost his Presidential position at Baylor University for covering up rapes by the good ole boys of this Ivy league college.
    Anyway Trump is a Con Man which makes him a liar.
    I am with Hillary, I hope you vote for her too.
    If Trump wins this election we will be worse off then when GWB was in office and started the Iraqi war and squandered the extra money for Social Security on his private war with that country and put us in the worse recession since the great depression.
    Are you old enough to remember the trouble that GWB got us in, with his LIES?
    God help us if Trump wins....
