At least one of these is accurate!

But seriously, I don't believe he ever set-out to do anything more than a self-promotional PR stunt. He surprisingly caught fire, he rode the roller coaster, and now he's stuck!

How any thinking person with an IQ above 75 can pretend that he is being honest about anything after the last few weeks is one of the great mysteries of the ages. He has just issued himself and all purpose GET OUT OF JAIL CARD - "I was being sarcastic"..... "even though I said I was not being sarcastic".

The guy is just slime and the most dangerous candidate since Wallace in 68 - but on steroids since he has a major party behind him while Wallace ran third party and had little chance out of the gate.

Here's the thing about Trump:

He crafted this entire thing.

He words things where it's pretty obvious what he's saying, but there's just enough doubt where he can be like "C'mon I'm just sayin' something else".

Trump knows exactly what he's saying, but he knows exactly how to cover his own ass afterwards.

It will be a great story for the Trumps at cocktail parties for years and with none of the enui attached to having to move to Washington and go through the motions.

Back in my old neighborhood we called guys like that:

"the kinda' guy you like to burn"

It basically meant 'he's a jag, even though you can't catch him cleanly'. So you screw-him-over underhanded, and behind the scenes.

Are you talking about Teflon Bill or his woman there too?

I don't feel quite that way about Bubba, and actually have some affection for him.

But I might say something similar about Hillary - except in the original context you did not 'burn' girls.

It was strictly a guy thing ...

Just to let you know, we don't have access to the "ten commandments" you have in your signature. Can you post them for us? I'd really like to see that, seeing as how he hates my guts for reporting him to the Secret Service.

please watch these hi IQ/well informed tRump supporters. if you don't have the time to wallow in the revealed stupidity, at least go to the end (13:58 for less than a minute) and watch the endorsements

I don't think he does. He floundered badly on the Carly Fiorina is ugly fiasco. He tried saying he didn't say it and he didn't mean her looks and finally settled on I was just trying to be entertaining.

But, he knows he'll get favored treatment from the press and he knows those he calls "my people" will believe anything he tells them and defend him regardless.

You are right, but last night me wife and I we're talking that Bill will be back in the WH.

I believe of the wedded two, he is far superior and probably would get deffered to by her quite a bit.

It would be a two-fer, though my gut says when the crap hits the wall she just might deffer to his judgement. In light of that, I'm feeling slightly better about this. Not great - but better.

His public reputation? As a casino owner fleecing suckers? As a deadbeat who doesn't pay bills? As a con man who's had three manufactured bakruptcies--which made him millions by screwing the little people? As a man who employees illegal aliens and then stiffs them on their pay? As a grown man who giggles and implies he's had sex with famous women like a spoiled teenager? As a husband who cheats on his wife and trades her in on a new European model when she starts to age? Melania won't be around much longer. The man who did the embarrassing promotional video for the Trump University scam and then called the judge who's hearing the case a Mexican? Get serious

Sorry. Saying his reputation might take a hit is like saying Michael Moore might get fat or Sen. Clinton might lie. Donald Trump's public reputation is that he's a liar, a huckster, a deadbeat, a bully, and a liberal.

Trump at his worst is better than the idiots running this country now.

Hillary is more of the same, but with gargantuan piles of baggage, and leads a private Foundation that is still pimping money from foreign countries. Hell, even Obama is laundering money now, and he doesn't even have to.

It's a link, just click on it in my sig.

If you can't (maybe you're blocked from his blog?). PM me and maybe we can work something out.

And if this is indeed true, he *definitely* should not be in the White House for 4 years ...
