    At least the Republicans do a good job at selling the notion they are scared. Trump has increasingly flip-flopped on so much.

    As dropped dead Andrew Breitbart found, the ground can be fatal, so really this was attempted murder. #HalfWitBreitbartLogic

    Rdowns concern for Breitbart helps me come full circle and understand the reported historic shifting, alternating allegiances in the Middle East.

    I believe he sees it another way: how conservatives are attacking their own, proving how there hasn't been a bigger schism in the USA since Tool.

    Right now, it's starting to feel like Trump's knuckle deep in the borderline.

    Right there's how the mainstream media distorts. Are you working for the Times and not telling us?

    You know, you can't keep staring facts in the face and cry "Media distortion!"

    And then there's this actual death threat:

    So now if you're not singing Trump's praises, you're not acting like a real American and they might have to kill you.

    Not a surprise that the Trump supporters try to minimize or ignore violence against women.

    It's pretty pathetic too that Trump and his minions can't even answer a few semi-tough questions from a reporter before getting all flustered and violent too. And that's supposed to convey leadership?

    Trump is like a six year old who's mom took his toy away and put him in time out any time he gets asked a tough question.


    Doing a great job of fulfilling the "TRUMP: Make America a Worldwide Embarrassment Again".

    Lets not pretend that Trump is the only flip flop artist running for office. Every politician flip flops based on the blowing winds. Every single one.

    If liberals are the enemy, it's really important that the liberal concept of peaceful discourse be replaced with a new kind of politics.

    Any battery against women will be prosecuted.

    By the same token, said battery coincidently will attract the misogynist Muslim vote.

    I clarified it as misogynist, so that there's no question it's referring to several PRSI threads on rampant and publicised Muslim rough group rapes of women in Europe.

    Yes because only Muslims abuse women.

    So let's get back on track — That whomever did the harm has got to be dealt with in our legal system.

    For all my criticisms of Breitbart, that Trump's campaign manager thought he could grab a journalist over a question infuriates me. It's unprofessional and unethical.

    If I run into Corey, I'll make sure he gets an earful and that if he tries to grab my arm, I'm keeping his.

    The larger problem is Trump's approach to journalists. He's called those covering him scum, dishonest, sleaze, and disgusting.

    He's made fun of a journalist's medical condition and argued that he wants to change libel laws to make it easier to sue. And, his campaign has repeatedly punished journalists for writing critical stories by barring them from press events

    But, I know this falls on deaf ears for Trump's supporters, who apparently think that muscling the Fourth Estate is good work.

    Not to mention he keeps journalists in a pen during his rallies.

    Not all press pens are equal.

    At a Bernie Sanders event, the press pen was designed to keep the crowd out of the press area, which included an avenue that allowed photographers to move from a riser for television cameras to the main stage.

    And, at a 2012 GOP debate, the press pen was a space nearest to the stage and was penned off by security to restrict access to credentialed media.

    However, the Trump campaign has used press pens to keep journalists for covering protestors, and the increasingly violent reactions of the crowd.

    For Brietbart, this is the best case scenario. The outlet gets to fawn over Trump again while protecting their reporter, because it was the Washington Post's fault.

    Meanwhile, Fields may be pressing charges.
