Top Trump Aide: GOP Convention Will Be The 'Ultimate Reality Show'

What happens when a party's nominee is a veteran of a hit reality television show? The convention that coronates him is flashier -- or at least that's what Donald Trump's campaign is promising.

Asked by MSNBC's Chris Matthews on Tuesday about Trump's plans for the GOP convention in Cleveland, top advisor Paul Manafort promised that the former "Apprentice" star would ensure an "an exciting convention."

"This is the ultimate reality show. It's the presidency of the United States," he said.

"It will be a program where we will be talking to America about not just Donald Trump but the Republican Party," he continued. "We'll put it in ways that we hope will be entertaining, but more important, informative."

Trump claims database error led to white nationalist delegate-BUT-Yesterday they sent congrats email

....the Trump campaign blamed a "database error" for including Johnson as a delegate, the campaign corresponded with him personally just over 24 hours ago. Trump's California delegate coordinator, Katie Lagomarsino, sent Johnson a congratulatory email on Monday, and when he asked for clarification about how to send his completed pledge form back to the campaign, she replied. Here is the email exchange (with the personal contact information redacted by Mother Jones):

Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Down Some Ecstasy and Watch The West Wing



Remember when idiots went bugfuck because President Obama put his feet up on the desk in the Oval Office? Remember when dumbasses lost their tiny minds because Obama was dressed too casually for a phone call with Vladimir Putin on the crisis in the Ukraine? Remember when fucknuts raised the batshit level to 11 because Obama saluted some Marines while he had a coffee cup in his hand?

Now imagine that photo up there was with President Obama. Imagine that a major terrorist attack had just occurred on U.S. soil, and this picture captured Obama sitting back with his feet on a desk as he was managing the crisis. Imagine the hategasm that would have ejaculated all over the media about what a filthy pig motherfucker Obama was for daring to look relaxed at such a time. Imagine if, during the bin Laden raid, he had kicked back all chill and shit. There would have been calls for his impeachment, if not his head.

That's President George W. Bush on September 11, 2001, post-My Pet Goat, when he was at Barksdale Air Force Base, looking for all the world like a man who was just told that the delivery guy forgot his sandwich.

This is not to slam Bush, although that'd be easy. It's to say that everything that Obama is criticized for - his casualness, his aloofness, his cool - was overlooked when it came to Bush and his brand of boobery by the same people who scream now.And that we should never forget that, even before Donald Trump, the Republicans had given us a total fucking idiot as their nominee, and he won.

Maybe he can win without women









It's not surprising to me that so many women would be appalled by Donald Trump. As I've said before, it's as if the Republicans had chosen David Duke to run against Barack Obama in 2008.

But it's also awfully depressing that so many men in this country really don't give a damn about this. Trump can spew sexist stuff all day long and it doesn't make them think any less of him.


Sad!

Barack Obama to visit Hiroshima on Asia trip

US President Barack Obama is to visit Hiroshima this month - the first serving president to travel to the Japanese city, which was hit by a US nuclear attack in 1945.

The visit will be part of an Asian trip that will also take in Vietnam.

The Hiroshima bombing on 6 August 1945 killed 140,000 people. Along with a second bombing on Nagasaki - it is credited with ending World War Two.

...................

A statement from Mr Obama's press secretary read: "The President will make an historic visit to Hiroshima with Prime Minister [Shinzo] Abe to highlight his continued commitment to pursuing peace and security in a world without nuclear weapons."



The president's communications adviser, Ben Rhodes, said Mr Obama would not revisit the use of the atomic bomb in World War Two but would "offer a forward-looking vision focused on our shared future".
