1. Isn't that sposed to read "LOL"?

 

Trump, the poll troll.

Does anyone think this rube might be collaborating with the likes of the Kochs or Sheldon? I'm just musing that maybe there's some unperceived strategy that's lost in the fog of reason. Maybe some convoluted efforts in cahoots with GOPox News?

I'm convinced the RNC is complicit as well.

All the way down to the sham phone call from Priebus beseeching Trump to knock it off. Cheap theater.

2. I love Bill Press' comment about Trump:

When asked on MSNBC about Trump, Bill Press said, "I have just three words: Thank You Jesus!"

and the Bern skates to victory!

5. I would never, ever vote for him

However, if Trump goes third party, I might very well give the GOP some payback for they way they supported Nader and used him to tip the scales in 2000.

I know you're looking for any excuse. We may yet see the first Presidential debate candidate to yell "fuck you" at an opponent on a national debate stage.

41. Possibly Jindal

among those currently in the running. Or Carson. They're every bit as much of an idiot and even worse in other ways.

But any of the current GOPer crop - and that includes the latest entry Kasich - would be a disaster, IMO. Whichever GOPer ultimately wins will be owned by the Kochs and their ilk and will do their bidding 150%. Do not believe for a second that will not be the case.

Among those not currently in the running, Wasilla Barbie would be worse, hands down, IMO.

16. I suspect Trump is being used to make the rest of the GOP field seem more palatible

 

This whole ridiculous series of mega-stupid quotes by Trump seem a bit like a political psy-op to me.

Psy-Op, as in "set-up".

Some people seem to be sensing this, as I am.

Ofcourse, perhaps unexpectedly to strategists, Trump is attracting a large numbers of reacitonary RW voters.
Perhaps more than they intended? Hard to say.


IMO, more folks on DU need to have less trust that all these goings-on are all perfectly "natural" events and
are not part of a planned strategy, or intended as manipulations of public opinion.



Think: cui bono.

26. If your theory is true then Trump has been setting up the ruse for as long as I have known

about him. Nothing he is doing while running for President is different than anything he has done in the past. He is a puffed up know-it-all now and always has been. His mouth is so large because he likes the taste of his own shoes. But his undeserved confidence makes him believes everything he says is true, especially his ability to do and find the perfect solution for any given situation. I have no doubts that Trump believes everything he says is true because in his mind it is.

Trump is not being used in the sense you think, Trump is doing his own thing. The others are playing off it as best they can but he and they are not working with a script.

32. It's theater but the RNC is truly apoplectic

This is not about trusting the goings on, this is about what is being said and body language. This is not a made-up split ---it's been reported for years the repugs are split between T-party and so-called moderates.

Trump is blowing hot air, IMO, because he wants the other GOP clowns to stop calling him names.

However, if he DID run as an Independent....Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

42. Trump the Troll de la Rue

Trump the Troll de la Rue

Of course it’s a game played very well by the GO Pox, marketed by CNN, FOX, and MSNBC. It is the primary game of complicity and Trump holds the wild cards.

I totally agree with the other comment Trump now convoluted much of the near history so much, making so much noise many will forget.

Bush Crime Inc. that era of War Profiteering and Banking swindling can be ditched in the background so a third cycle of political lies will drive the Republican Party into a new wave of commercial and military profiteering.

True to the allegiance of swindle and creepy rhetoric the Donald Trump with the media will ignore Bush Inc.

Bush Crime Inc. history is being suppressed. That is the personal family history the secrecy in personal business partnerships with the Bin Laden family. The very group America is fighting a so called Jihad, endless war…

Trump is giving the perfect opportunity in Glitz and Sensationalism to avoid the ugly meta consumer spying, banking political gerrymandering reverse mortgages. Trump fits the narcissistic personality in one percent greed.

With those credentials to aid national media in an avalanche of commercial revenue that will likely cycle in bonus salaries and irreverent cable profits back to the GOP party. It can be easily argued he is being bought off because Trump is the perfect profile in corruption and bankruptcy.

Trump has the job to avoid the history in Bush Crime Inc. that history of sacking the treasury, holding the door open for ground zero and the escalated history of war mongering, with torture, and secrecy intelligence spying all along trading with the enemy, the Bin Laden family.

The media itself is hardwired to this corruption positioning and building all agencies to spread their GO Pox, with the primer opportunity to build the worst Supreme Court in law interpretation any society would have to endure… that will sustain… power… sounds like America in shrewd political money maneuvering is becoming an Islamic form of Government don’t you think? My conclusion if Bush Inc. wins the GOP, Osama Bin Laden won a major step in the war Jihad.
