Coincidence, or ______?

Trump loves the poorly edumacated!

Rubio Says Trump Would Be ‘Selling Watches’ If He Didn’t Get Money From His Dad

During Thursday night’s Republican debate at The University of Houston, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) put rival candidate Donald Trump on blast — claiming that if he hadn’t inherited money from his father, Trump would likely just be selling watches in New York City.

“Here’s the guy that inherited $200 million,” said Rubio. “If he hadn’t inherited $200 million, you know where Donald Trump would be right now? Selling watches in Manhattan.”

Trump fought back, saying, “I took $1 million, and I turned it into $10 billion.”

(yeah, sure he did......)

and the Robot rebooted this too:

"If he builds the wall the way he built Trump Towers, he'll be using illegal immigrant labor to do it," Rubio said of Trump, referring to Trump's proposal to build a border wall along the border with Mexico.


Donald Trump’s political triumph makes it official — we’re a nation of idiots

I hate to have to say it, but the conclusion stares us in the face: We’re a stupid country, full of loud, illiterate and credulous people. Trump has marched straight to the nomination without offering anything like a platform or a plan. With a vocabulary of roughly a dozen words – wall, Mexicans, low-energy, loser, Muslims, stupid, China, negotiate, deals, America, great, again – he’s bamboozled millions of Americans. And it’s not just splenetic conservatives supporting Trump or your garden-variety bigots (although that’s the center of his coalition), it’s also independents, pro-choice Republicans, and a subset of Reagan Democrats. This says something profoundly uncomfortable about our country and our process. A majority of Americans appear wholly uninterested in the actual business of government; they don’t understand it and don’t want to. They have vague feelings about undefined issues and they surrender their votes on emotional grounds to whoever approximates their rage. This has always been true to some extent, but Trump is a rubicon-crossing moment for the nation.

Reid Scolds GOP on Sandoval: “I am sorry the Republicans are treating even 1 of their own that way."

Reid on Sandoval:

Senate Republicans said the governor’s party affiliation made no difference — they would not even consider any nominee put forward by Mr. Obama. That only amplified Democratic rhetoric:

“I am sorry the Republicans are treating even one of their own that way."

Former Mexican President to Donald Trump: ‘I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall’

Former Mexican President to Donald Trump: ‘I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall’

In an interview with Jorge Ramos on Fusion, former Mexican president Vicente Fox said emphatically that if Donald Trump were to be elected to the Oval Office in November and make good on his promise of building a wall along the US-Mexico border, Mexico should not foot the bill, as Trump has suggested.

"I declare: I'm not going to pay for that fucking wall," Fox said. "He should pay for it. He's got the money."


Just casually calling for a military coup.

Kansas Republican: Military leaders have constitutional obligation to disobey Obama order to close Gitmo


“The men and women of our military who he would ask to carry out that mission would have to look very carefully at whether the direction that they were being given was consistent with what their counsel was telling them about what was legal,” Pompeo said. “I hope the president won’t put anybody in that position and won’t present risk to America, but we’ve watched the president behave in lawless ways.”

Host Steve Malzberg asked the congressman whether military members might disobey the president’s order after consulting with unspecified legal authorities.

“You know, I served, Steve, in the military for quite a while, and if there’s one thing you understand it’s chain of command and following orders,” Pompeo said.

The lawmaker and military veteran, however, carved out a major exception to the chain of command and the obligation to follow orders — at least when Obama is the commander in chief.
