GOP Strategist Calls Donald Trump a 'Loudmouthed Dick' on Live TV

“Have you lost any hope that the GOP can reign Trump in to be more traditional?” Cooper inquired. “Or at least more disciplined as a candidate?”

“I lost all hope of that probably seven, eight months ago now, quite candidly,” Mair replied. “It’s amazing to me that anybody’s still having a discussion about having some sort of an intervention or bringing him back on message… This is his message. His message is being a loudmouthed dick, basically, and going out there and offending people and then engaging in a bunch of airing of grievances. That’s what he does. He doesn’t have another message.”


Manafort: "Well, the dropping poll numbers were expected"

So much winning.....



Newt vs Rudy: Giuliani suggests that the "Trump intervention" originated with Gingrich


Turn it off, you say?


It Would Only Take Minutes.....



Megyn Kelly cried, “Must he help them?! Must he help them so generously every day?!”


Megyn Kelly really went off tonight after running a montage of all the past controversies he’s gotten himself into––including the one involving her––and giving the media more ammo with which to attack him.

She cried, “What is he doing relitigating every controversy from the primary season?!” Ben Domenech said the idea of the Trump campaign being in turmoil isn’t news because it’s kind of a constant.

Kelly also pointed out that, despite Trump bragging about it, ramps for the disabled are mandatory. Trump supporter David Wohl pointed out how expensive they are. Kelly literally buried her head in her hands and deadpanned, “Oh, good God.”

She said she understands that the media is biased against Trump, but, Kelly cried, “Must he help them?! Must he help them so generously every day?!”


OBAMA: It’s important that their dad is a feminist, because now that’s what they expect of all men

Glamour Exclusive: President Barack Obama Says, "This Is What a Feminist Looks Like"

In my lifetime we’ve gone from a job market that basically confined women to a handful of often poorly paid positions to a moment when women not only make up roughly half the workforce but are leading in every sector, from sports to space, from Hollywood to the Supreme Court. I’ve witnessed how women have won the freedom to make your own choices about how you’ll live your lives—about your bodies, your educations, your careers, your finances. Gone are the days when you needed a husband to get a credit card. In fact, more women than ever, married or single, are financially independent.

So we shouldn’t downplay how far we’ve come. That would do a disservice to all those who spent their lives fighting for justice. At the same time, there’s still a lot of work we need to do to improve the prospects of women and girls here and around the world. And while I’ll keep working on good policies—from equal pay for equal work to protecting reproductive rights—there are some changes that have nothing to do with passing new laws.

In fact, the most important change may be the toughest of all—and that’s changing ourselves.


As a parent, helping your kids to rise above these constraints is a constant learning process. Michelle and I have raised our daughters to speak up when they see a double standard or feel unfairly judged based on their gender or race—or when they notice that happening to someone else. It’s important for them to see role models out in the world who climb to the highest levels of whatever field they choose. And yes, it’s important that their dad is a feminist, because now that’s what they expect of all men.


Back at you, Trump...

LOL. Okay, guys.


Acceptance of racism is an act of racism. You are convicted by your complicity.

Trump Reflects White Male Fragility
Charles M. Blow AUG. 4, 2016


Trump’s wall is not practical, but it is metaphor. Trump’s Muslim ban is not feasible, but it is metaphor. Trump’s huge deportation plan isn’t workable, but it is metaphor.

There is a portion of the population that feels threatened by unrelenting change — immigration, globalization, terrorism, multiculturalism — and those people want someone to, metaphorically at least, build a wall around their cultural heritage, which they conflate in equal measure with American heritage.

In their minds, whether explicitly or implicitly, America is white, Christian, straight and male-dominated. If you support Trump, you are on some level supporting his bigotry and racism. You don’t get to have a puppy and not pick up the poop.

And acceptance of racism is an act of racism. You are convicted by your complicity.
