Cenk explains Obama's announcement about favoring increasing SS benefits.

Sanders and the PCCC get credit for moving this conversation into the mainstream.

Trump is a sponger, a deadbeat, a swindler. His career is based on theft and non-payment

The mind truly boggles that the media just lets this human garbage can run around and say things, never checks him, and never reports on his long and well-documented history of just screwing over people he owes debts to.

Could I dislike this asshat more? I could not.

let's start with his famous bankruptcies. When his opponents point out that going bankrupt multiple times makes him look like a failed businessman, Trump turns it around by saying it was shrewd of him to go bankrupt - just using the system to his advantage. And everyone nods and agrees . . .the rules allow him to do it, and it was to his advantage, so why not? Well, the people he was screwing over in these bankruptcies - his investors, the contractors who had agreed to build something for him and had already invested the time, labor, and materials, the other businesses that had provided him with services or goods, but would never be repaid - were the ones he stiffed. How many other businesses had to go out of business or declare bankruptcy because Hurricane Donald just decided not to pay his debts? How many lives were ruined because they trusted him to do a business transaction?

An old cliche is that good businesses are built on trust. For Trump's partners in business, I'm sure that is a painful reminder of the way he reneges on his contracts

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-trump-bills-specialrepor-idUSKCN0T214Q20151113#JAvZbu4FPKrEOi4C.99

the above article shows that Trump signs contracts, has work done, and then "feels like he was overcharged" and refuses to pay the amounts he agreed on.

There is article after article about how he doesn't pay his bills:

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/03/not-comprehensive-history-trump-business-deals-gone-wrong

http://www.nytimes.com/1998/06/14/nyregion/after-15-years-in-court-workers-lawsuit-against-trump-faces-yet-another-delay.html?pagewanted=all

Trump DOESN'T PAY HIS BILLS. How nice would that be for the ordinary citizen? Despite all of that, it is becoming clear that he isn't nearly as rich as he claims to be. Even with screwing over all the people he promises to pay, he's been slowly losing his daddy's inheritance (which he screwed his brother out of).

What a piece of garbage. This is why reputation and gossip was so important to the original tribes of homo sapiens - to find out who kept their deals and who cheated. And Trump is a monumental cheater.

The MEN of America are poised to hand the reins of the country to an orange-coiffed, piggish man-boy

Ok, my original thread was about the general election

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027872174#post54

but it got locked and I was told to re-post it in GDP, because apparently everyone on this board has terrible reading comprehension.

So, here it is again:

And everyone knows they are stupid enough to do it.

This election is going to split the country along gender lines. And the majority of men in this country are going to vote for this idiot, this thief who doesn't pay his bills, who doesn't know anything, and who thinks he can just coast along by seat-of-his-pants answers, like a kid trying to bluff his way through a book report on a book he hasn't glanced at.

The only question is will enough women vote for Clinton, and will few enough men vote for Trump to create a big enough gap for a Democratic victory.

My gender should be ashamed of this - and if you know men in your lives who might be voting for this asshole, please do what you can to change their minds.


I was referring to this poll: http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/poll-majority-americans-dislike-hillary-clinton-donald-trump-n578926

which shows that if the election were held today, a majority of men would vote for Trump.

Investigative journalism is not dead!

Gawker on Trump's mysterious hair:

http://gawker.com/is-donald-trump-s-hair-a-60-000-weave-a-gawker-invest-1777581357

At the very least, microcylinders would certainly explain how a 69-year-old man could grow hair with the capacity to effectively wrap itself around the circumference of his head several times over. Without having direct access to Donald Trump’s head, of course, it’s difficult to say for sure exactly how these attachments would function. Are they simply a web of additional hair as described in the Roach lawsuit? Do the microcylinders include what the Ivari brochure dubs “microextensions,” ensuring extraordinary length?

....

Ivari International sat squarely in the direct vicinity of Donald Trump’s office.

Considering the lack of advertising and refusal to share its actual location, new clients would have surely been rare, if not nonexistent. This would mean, then, that Ivari would need some steady source of income from some sort of mega-client. Some mega-client that, perhaps, has built an identity around his objectively terrible hair choices but refuses to concede that his hair is anything but his own. In which case, this bombastic, mega-client would of course demand the utmost privacy.

Wouldn’t it be convenient, then, if Ivari’s New York office was right next door to its number one—and perhaps only—client’s own office? And wouldn’t having other clients become unnecessary if this one hyper-wealthy regular required constant attention?

Might this secret mega-client singlehandedly sustaining Ivari International’s New York office with constant treatments be none other than presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump himself?


Now _that's_ real news!

Trump trying to answer questions

Trump doesn't know anything. He's dumb. His answers to questions remind me of this old comedy routine by David Steinberg:

(As if reading the test question) "Refute the allegation that the literature of the middle ages was moribund."
(As if writing) "Some believe that the literature of the middle ages was moribund. Some believe that the literature of the middle ages was not moribund. I believe that the literature of the middle ages was not moribund. In order to refute the allegation that the literature of the middle ages was moribund, one would need to have a detailed knowledge of the literature and history of that period."
(Whispering to self) "which I wish to God I had."
