    Sending a message. Who cares whether he makes money from it.

    Trump wants more than just money. He wants to be a constant center of attention. To have people cheering and screaming his name. It feeds his insatiable ego.

    Trump will just fill the empties with dummies and there'll be no difference between that and the no-show Bangorians. Because in getting tickets, no-showing and advertising it, the phantom Bangorians admit to record crowds.

    Or rather you won't be able to tell them apart from the crowd.

    The left has been trying this tactic since primary season, it hasn't worked and he still gets more attendance than Hillary.

    The left should spend more time on their own candidate and less on sabotaging the right.

    And yet Trump's ego still goes hungry. Poor thing might die of starvation soon.

    Especially since the right's candidate is doing a fabulous job sabotaging himself.

    I thought he was already filling them with dummies. Sorry but you opened yourself up for that one.

    I guess the first tactic of blocking highways and throwing eggs at his supporters didn't work.

    Election day is November 8 2016. Today is Aug 7th, in the evening.

    23 = days in Aug 8-31 inclusive
    30 = days in September
    31 = day in October
    06 = days in Nov 1-6 inclusive

    ===
    90 more days of this stuff. I wonder how much a Trump rally ticket costs. Maybe the most vocal Bernie supporters could buy them and fill the seats and be as rude to Trump as they were to Hilllary. As a public service and to burnish the street cred of democratic socialism. Surely it can't be worth 27 bucks a pop to attend a Trump rally?

    Y'all flunked the arithmetic test though. 24 days in Aug 8-31 inclusive, 91 to election day.

    Man some days are longer than others.

    I'm having a really big party on November 8th even if there's no winner by midnight.

    I should explain.

    For Trump to maintain some dignity and drop out of the race, it is up to state rules to determine if he can or can't. Since all 50 states have different rules, the first state where this comes into play is West Virginia, whose rules state that he must submit paperwork no later than 84 days prior to the election. Since we're at 90 days, we have 6 days and counting before he is stuck and can't withdraw.

    But my first example was incorrect and we're at 91 days so it's 7 days and counting for Trump to stick or fade...

    A historical landslide victory for Hillary. I don't care if Trump wins the three presidential debates. I don't care if Donald hands out $100 bill to everyone in the state of Maine. He is not going to win this election and it won't even be close no matter what he does from here on out. People can just take his bribe and still vote for the dragon lady. A normal, rational human being versus an abnormal, irrational being. Had to take out human for Trump since he doesn't have the compassion like us. There is a little bit of Hillary and Donald in all of us except we don't have the fame or wealth. We are all flawed, but do we really need to point the obvious winner here?

    Mainers are smart. People in all states should do this. Even ones in the Ku Klux Klan pep rallies because those KKK folks might be white but aren't as rich like him. KKK and white supremacists are still SHEEP to him. I don't think Napoleon wasn't this clueless like Donald is. Hillary Clinton showed get all 538 electoral votes just for showing up. The most racist states that usually vote for Republicans are not voting for Trump. Worst presidential candidate ever. He will run the country the same way he ran his businesses to the ground. I would rather vote for George W. Bush, Jeb Bush, Sarah Palin, and Kanye West over him.

    Vote for Trump if you want parody over diplomacy, and a mockery over democracy.

    Expect the entire map to be covered in all of blue by November. Whichever state happens to be red should be labeled the dumbest and most racist states in all of America. But I see Hillary being the first to win all 50 states and DC. Donald is from NYC and he isn't going to win New York either where Hillary was a Senator for them. The biggest landslide in the history of election. Whoever votes for Donald should be labeled a dunce, leave the country, and never vote for a democratic country again. Even Adolf Hitler was more educated than Trump.

    I was so aware of it, but the point made was worth taking the hit from the conspicuous open, which you ought not be that proud of zeroing in, but for the minimal brain power it took to arrive at, particularly it being one of the left's repetitive drumbeats for the past year. Same goes for your up voters. :)

    So yes, Trump capacity crowds become attention getting, care of those wily sharp minded Bangorian's plot. Added to the Left's preventing events, if not infiltrating events, while you almost never hear of conservatives pulling the same desperate tactics.
