until they finally heard the laughter. They may be slow, but they have limits.

Sure, Trump loves the attention and adulation. But is he just rolling around in imagined adulation here, or is this perhaps a way of sabotaging his own campaign? I have trouble believing Trump actually wants all that magnificent hair turning white and falling out from the inescapable burdens he's headed toward.

Hillary attacks and Bernie's numbers go up.

What is in the political water these days? Up is down. Black is White. In is Out. Right is Left. Yes is No. Hope is Nope.

Call him out to prove what he states is true and let his minions know we are waiting for their response.
He has just insulted all the people who have shown him support.

His supporters do not support the laws or ideals of our nation, they are just in it for themselves and see a kindred soul in Trump.

I've been hammering all the conservofascist bloggers with this line of his, and they still refuse to see how insane this man really is. Saying something like that would get anyone but him arrested on the spot. In the last 10 years of shooting incidents you'd think he'd have some fucking respect for those who were cut down by gun violence... but no.. all Trump is about is himself and his ego...period.

and that he himself is in disbelief at how far he can go without diminishing his support.

Either that or he really is Hitler. It's one or the other.

Because he is riling up people who are ANGRY that they have to share their country with people who do not look like them. And they're SERIOUS about this anger, it's not a game to them. They're taking him seriously and using his words as an excuse to act out on that anger. LIke you said, Hitler.

But, Trump seems to think very highly of himself, so he probably thinks the American people are just in the process of wising up to him.

Outside of the people at the rally he spoke at will never hear this quote.

I doubt fox will report it. And if they do it will be at like 1 pm and reported once.

But I really want to be wrong on this one.

If Bernie or Hillary said some crazy shit, we would wonder what is happening...did he or she just have a brain melt?

If any one like Trump says crazy shit on the right they get cheers.

They follow and we think. That is the difference between the two parties.
