Brilliant! From Clinton event in Pensacola, FL:

If you watch carefully you can see the exact moment that Trump starts to bomb at the Al Smith:

"Ha ha ha OH DEAR"

This election should be written as an Ant and Grasshopper illustrated book.

Clinton as the Ant, Trump as the Grasshopper.

The Ant building a GOTV apparatus, registering voters, raising money, buying ads, prepping for debates.

The Grasshopper having a bunch of rallies about how great he is and doing none of the rest.

The Ant sweeping in with 370+ electoral votes and a Senate majority.

So Ryan's district in WI has a "Trump Conservative Party" candidate on the ballot.

Spencer Zimmerman. Did they arrange this in advance? Can you get on the ballot at the last minute there?

Hilarious if this results in Ryan's ouster. Any polling of this district?

One silver lining to this election is that Trump will be so radioactive his businesses are screwed.

He'll never get another TV show, and the business of the hotels and resorts bearing his name will undoubtedly suffer.

I don't think he's going to get a ton of customers at his resorts from the Redhats.

When are the GOP finally going to bail on Trump? Have they lost their minds? Look at him.

It's not even an issue of any specific policy. He's a madman melting down, ranting and raving.

How could anyone, even if you felt this guy was closer to you in policy (and he has none), feel that this guy should lead the country?

It's too late for GOP to save their skins/seats, but they could still kill this candidacy, ensure that he will lose by so much that the danger of his idiots rioting and killing people is diminished.

He's a fascist. Look at him for Christ's sake. Can't they see the danger?

They're really going to stay with him just for their stupid seats? This is so much bigger than that.

Are the authenticity of the wikileaks emails being verified in any way?

If reporters are just dutifully writing stories about all this stuff being fed to them what's to stop Putin or Assange to have completely forged or altered stuff in there?

I think Trump intends to make the whole election such a sewer he could win with low turnout.

I think mostly he is flinging poop everywhere because he's an undisciplined maniac.

But I do think there could be a glimmer of strategy that if everyone gets disgusted enough and weary of it, if non deploreable people respond with weary disgust instead of righteous anger at him, that he could get close enough to win.

I think he's down in way too many states everywhere for it to work, but nothing should be allowed to diminish a huge win and repudiation of the GOP and fascist politics, as well as reclaiming Congress.

I envision Trump's "debate prep" sessions to look something like this:

Crossposted from GD2016: My friend wants to give N.C. voters rides to the polls.

He has a few other volunteers too.

Is there any particular infrastructure set up for things like this?

Is there any people in particular he should contact other than the obvious ones of the state and local N.C. Democratic parties and the Clinton campaign?

Are there any particular areas or towns where they would do the most good?
