Didn't you see Trump leave his rostrum, cross the stage and follow her around while she was speaking, without saying anything?

'another'?

if we say an average Obama speech scores 100, then trump is hitting about a 1 maybe 2 on a good day.

Yep, another consequence of "swamp draining". Presidents have not, until now, gone after candidates of their own party. Tearing up this tradition, Trump started a fight by criticizing GOP choice Flake (a Trump hater) and boosting Ward (a Trump fan). So McConnell is fighting back. Since he and Trump shouted at each other over the phone on the 9th of August, they have not spoken.

Who needs an opposition when Trump is president! With any luck his efforts will get a Democrat elected...

More popcorn!
I doubt Trump has enough backing to force McConnell to resign as he suggested. Anyway there is no obvious replacement ; better the devil you know!

Trumps base still love him so he will not be going anywhere soon either

Maybe Democrats will win enough seats in 2018 to permanently block any changes

'My skin crawled': Hillary Clinton recalls dealing with 'creep' Trump

"Hillary Clinton considered telling Donald Trump: “Back up, you creep!” during one of the presidential debates, adding, in the first extract from her new book, that “my skin crawled” when he invaded her personal space. ...

“This is not OK, I thought,” Clinton writes. “It was the second presidential debate, and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled.”


As much of a fool that Trump seems to be, I didn't notice him being creepy during the debates, though he did seem to loom - perhaps because he's bigger than her and it was a small stage. I interpreted what he said on the bus as hyperbole, rather than reality, just like so much else he says. I wonder if this is hyperbole by Hillary Clinton.


Creepy indeed.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

He reminds me of a creepy sexual predator who stalks his poor victim before doing the unthinkable.


Bleurgh.

Very strange video; has it been altered or shopped in any way?

Trump looks like he is being operated under remote control but the operator forgot to move Trump's arms!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I'm just waiting for someone to pull a Black Mirror s01e01 stunt with Trump.
That should be interesting viewing.

Why the hell should the media (as if it is one monolith, rather than varying sources of varying political persuasions) remain impartial?

Sorry, you don't get to whine because some outlets don't write / broadcast what you like...there's always North Korea if you can't hack that.
