    Not a surprise. He's built his entire life conning other people. He should be Madoff's neighbor in the gray bar motel.

    I don't think that Trump can make a dime out of it, at least not directly.

    I see you ducked out, AGAIN, on meaningful debate. You asked for sources and 5 or 6 were provided regarding Trump's documented racism. At this point, I can't be bothered replying to disingenuous people. I'd rather get my dick caught in my zipper.

    But I will put you down as being pro-Trump violating campaign laws.

    I could easily see where those responses would have taken us. It would have been unfruitful.

    I frankly don't give 2 s***s about what you will or won't read. But I am determined to continue to bring Hillarys criminal nature to light.

    That's easy to say when you know there's no real chance it would ever reach far enough to get caught in there.

    (Sorry, couldn't resist)

    Even when completely irrelevant to the topic. Well done. You're probably that guy who tries to argue with a cop that he shouldn't get a ticket because everyone else was speeding, right?

    But but but Hillary. Sad. Desperate.

    The 'desperate' phrase is over used and meaningless at this point.

    Talk to the hand...
    Don't go there...
    TMI...


    Ugh.

    With the Trump campaign in hospice mode, perhaps we should take it easy on his supporters.

    I was looking at some Reuters commentary about the Manafort-to-Bannon/Conway handover. Look at the third of the three photos. Conway does not look like a well person. Maybe can make a meme out of that for awhile.

    That's assuming we get tired of looking at the first photo w/ Don's awesome "pivotal" salute.

    Trying to think of something to say about the second photo in that piece, the one of Bannon apparently taping the session they were having on security. Someone thought it a good idea to put "Mr. Stephen Bannon" on his name placard. Always good idea to kiss up to a new campaign CEO.

    Anyway I thought the Reuters headline on that thing was apt: "Going to the mattresses." This is going to be a really ugly couple of months in the media w/ Bannon on board.

    I remember her frequent appearance on Politically Incorrect years ago. She was always a looker. Age hasn't been kind to her. Based on her media appearances, she appears to be in over her head.

    LOL Conway was over her head even while working for Todd Aiken... ran one up the flagpole for the St.Louis press about how Republican leadership ganging up on Aiken over his "legitimate rape" idiocy was like the feds picking on David Koresh at Waco. That flag did not fly very well.

    She must have learned something from that one. Even if she didn't, the time for appealing to Trump's core followers is over. so Bannon and Conway, while needing to cater to Don's desire to tweet one out there now and then, have to try to appeal to some other potential voters, and it's probably too late.

    There's a big chunk of independents out there, maybe as much as 30% when you add in the ones lying about being for Clinton or Trump right now. But that 30% isn't likely to go for either Clinton or Trump. They're going to go six ways from Sunday for Johnson, Stein, write-in Sanders, the ex-CIA guy, write-in-your-dog. So Don should be almost toast even now, with Clinton already up in states he helped put in play, plus big blues.

    Still there is the black swan lurking. Plus the wonderment if a Trump-Bannon network is the goal rather than a presidency. I guess that could just be Fox getting all paranoid.

    Hillary and Obama should be in ADX Florence.
