My heart goes out to those poor nine people that were trapped in an elevator with Trump. I cannot imagine the horror that they must've been experiencing..

"Just before Trump claimed fire dept. "doesn't know what the hell they're doing," they rescued him from an elevator."

... Trump's campaign staff arrived at the hotel in possession of their own elevator key, and was using it to operate the elevator manually. ... The Colorado Springs Fire Department was called in, and rescuers were able to lower a ladder down to the trapped parties through a hatch in the elevator ceiling.
... The only problem that could be found was a computer code indicating "elevator failure due to operator error". The technician believes that a Trump staffer incorrectly turned the key at the wrong moment, stopping the car between the first and second floors. A safety switch shuts down the elevator automatically when this occurs.

ok, so team tRump ****s up the elevator with their private key to override the system
and the fire department shows up to get them out safely
notice how tRump expresses his appreciation
... Trump eventually took the stage at the rally, where he opened his remarks by blasting the local fire marshal for shutting off entry to his campaign event due to capacity restrictions.
"This is why our country doesn't work," Trump said as he slammed the Colorado Springs fire marshal during the rally, moments after the department's firefighters rescued him. The paper reported that Trump said the fire marshal "didn't know what he was doing and 'was probably a Democrat.' "
Fire marshal Brett Lacey told a local TV station that organizers handed out too many tickets and the venue couldn't accommodate all of the people who wanted to attend. ...

fire marshall refused to allow tRump to exceed the fire code provisions and tRump responded in his inimitable way: he threw a tantrum
isn't tRump the 'law and order' candidate. only one who believes he is above the law

These ridiculous threads are what we have to look forward to if Trump gets elected.

If that clown somehow manages to get elected, you'll have much worse things to look forward to than "ridiculous threads".

You're right. There's no telling what idiotic **** the Liberals are going to pull. We're going to see the biggest sore loser event in history.

Hillarys lack of character is settled then? You can't look at comments like that and not think of the alternative.

If you truly believe that Trump has the best interest of this country in mind or cares about bettering the lives of Americans, I have a bridge to sell you. He's clearly a sociopath but then again that's why I feel that the extreme right identify with him.

Trump being trapped in an elevator somehow warrants a thread?
