Donald Trump is a Perpetual Sucker: Megyn Kelly Edition
Donald Trump is always saying (in public, usually on tape) that people are “great” and “wonderful” and that he is great friends with them. As we discussed this morning, being a perpetual sucker, he always seems to realize, way too late to the game, that he was wrong and that they are terrible and awful people. We catalogued earlier today that this is a very | Read More »
This is one poll result Donald Trump isn’t going to crow about
Pew Research did a poll about the 2016 Presidential candidates, but they didn’t look to see who’s winning or losing. They asked opinions about the candidates and religion, and the results are not looking good for Donald Trump as the Iowa caucuses approach.
Suddenly Hillary Clinton Wants More Debates
For the last solid year, Hillary Clinton has allowed her good friend and ally Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to take a virtually endless stream of abuse from the Democrat base for obviously protecting her from debating in public. The theory was that Clinton was supposed to walk easily to the nomination, and the party did not want Clinton to risk bruising in a highly publicized debate moment. | Read More »
This Rubio Video is Pretty Amazing
I saw this floating around on Twitter. I don’t even know if it was made by the campaign or just a guy on Twitter who is a fan of Rubio’s. Either way, it is a pretty awesome video and highlights Rubio’s positive message. Take a look: Vote for a man who truly loves America and not just attention. #IAcaucus #iowacaucus #iowa #nhprimary #nhpolitics https://t.co/WCdKqZzvFJ | Read More »
The Worst Campaign Ad of the Primary Season has Arrived
One might be surprised to learn that people are still giving money to Mike Huckabee’s current bid to be the presidential nominee for the Republican Party. One would be forgiven for thinking that, assuming there are people that are still giving a campaign maxing at 2% in most polls, the money would at least be well spent. One would be wrong, as evidenced by the | Read More »
Who in the Conservative Movement has Trump Successfully Bought?
Yesterday, Trump tried to accuse prominent Iowa evangelical Bob Vander Plaats of having made or attempted to make money off of Trump’s name and publicity. Specifically, he accused Vander Plaats of making $100,000 off of arranging for Trump to speak at an Iowa event, and of (I guess) trying to get Trump to let him stay in his hotels for free. Thankfully for Vander Plaats, | Read More »
Why Donald Trump Is A Bad Man And Would Be A Bad President
During the 1992 election, Sec. of Labor declared “You cannot be one kind of man and another kind of president.” The election of Bill Clinton proved just how right she was. Now we are on the cusp of doing that again.

Why Is Donald Trump Afraid of Megyn Kelly?
Why is it that Megyn Kelly asks one question – a question Hillary Clinton could absolutely murder Trump’s candidacy on – and Donald Trump throws a tantrum so great he’ll skip a debate in Iowa on the week of the Iowa caucus simply over her presence on a debate stage? What is Donald Trump afraid of? Why does Trump want to pull this sort of PR | Read More »
Ammon Bundy thankfully arrested with no law enforcement deaths #BlueLivesMatter
The armed gang led by Ammon Bundy was captured last night. They refused to surrender, and the stop erupted in gunfire, with reports not saying who shot first. One gang member was killed, the rest were arrested. No law enforcement agents were killed. If an armed, inner-city gang were stopped on the road, with one member killed and the rest arrested, there would be no | Read More »

Donald Trump: Perpetual Sucker
Is there anyone in history who has erroneously believed that people were his friends more frequently than Donald Trump? Donald Trump has a lengthy list of enemies at this point, almost each one of whom he once publicly called a friend or an ally. Conversely, almost everyone who Trump now believes might be on his side has been, in the not-too-recent past, a public enemy. The | Read More »
