Trump Doctor Wrote Health Letter in Just 5 Minutes as Limo Waited

Source: NBC News

Bornstein said that after he was asked to write the letter, he thought about what he would say all day but did not type it out until the last minute as a black car sent by Trump waited to collect it. He said he didn't even proofread it.

The doctor said he would not normally use such over-the-top language in a letter for a patient but he made an exception for Trump — who just two weeks before had tweeted that the doctor's assessment would show "perfection."

"I think I picked up his kind of language and then just interpreted it to my own," Bornstein said.

Drive thru medical report? The best. Believe me.

That look of horror on Trump's own supporters when Trump says something crazy.

Today when Trump called Hillary a "bigot," he got a jaw dropping gasp out of the female supporter standing behind him on stage. At a rally, Donald Trump said, "Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future." Video:

Kind of the same reaction as the man standing behind Trump on stage as Trump suggested Hillary be assassinated:

Pretty sad when the cray cray Trump supporters standing on stage with him have a better sense of the innappropriate than Trump.

Donald Trump's Poll-Watching Talk Spurs Call for International Monitors of U.S. Election

Source: NBC News

In a letter sent Saturday, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights asked the Warsaw, Poland-based Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) to "greatly expand" its U.S. election monitoring program.

"The unprecedented weakening of the Voting Rights Act has led to a tidal wave of voter discrimination efforts nationwide and has required the United States to drastically scale back its own election monitoring program," wrote Wade Henderson and Nancy Zirkin, president and vice president respectively of the Washington, D.C.-based Leadership Conference.

"In addition, a leading presidential candidate who has made the demonization of racial, ethnic, and religious minorities a hallmark of his campaign has recently urged supporters to challenge voters at polling sites nationwide.

"An OSCE spokesman declined Monday to comment on the letter, saying the organization planned to respond directly to the Leadership Conference on Tuesday.

Donald Trump faces new backlash over pitch to black voters

Source: CBS News

On the heels of another staff shakeup, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was facing a new backlash - this time for his attempt to get black voters to vote for him in the November election.

CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett reports it was supposed to be a day for a clean slate, but Trump’s latest attempted outreach to a larger voting bloc was called ignorant and heavy-handed by his critics.

Speaking from a predominately white suburb in Michigan, Trump tried to increase his support from African-American voters, which according to a recent Pew survey favor Hillary Clinton over the Republican nominee by an 83-point margin.

“You’re living in poverty,” Trump said. “Your schools are no good. You have no jobs - 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”

Donald just can't seem to get out of the rough.

Roger Ailes Is Advising Donald Trump Ahead of Presidential Debates

Roger Ailes, the former Fox News chairman ousted last month over charges of sexual harassment, is advising Donald J. Trump as he begins to prepare for the all-important presidential debates this fall.

Mr. Ailes is aiding Mr. Trump’s team as it turns its attention to the first debate with Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, on Sept. 26 on Long Island, according to three people briefed on the move, who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

Two of them said that Mr. Ailes’s role could extend beyond the debates, which Mr. Trump’s advisers see as crucial to vaulting him back into strong contention for the presidency after a series of self-inflicted wounds that have eroded his standing in public opinion polls.



I wonder who is paying Ailes...

Where Are Hillary Clinton's Pantsuits Made? Right Here in Beverly Hills

In a segment on the Sunday morning news program "Fox and Friends," anchor Anna Kooiman said pantsuits designed by Susanna Beverly Hills that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton often wears were made outside the United States.

The anchors were discussing Clinton's hypocrisy in criticizing GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump for manufacturing clothes bearing his name outside the U.S.

"Susanna Beverly Hills garments are the product of hundreds of hours of American labor, and women, including Hillary Clinton, can be proud to wear a garment that has been crafted with the absolute most care and skill here in the United States," the fashion house said in a release.


Trump is lying about his Wharton School degree.

Trump did not go to Wharton’s prestigious MBA program. Rather, he received an undergraduate degree offered by Wharton to University of Pennsylvania students. And Trump didn’t attend Wharton for a full four years. Instead, he transferred there after spending his first two undergraduate years at Fordham, the Jesuit university in the Bronx.

Gwenda Blair’s book on the Trump family reports that he gained admission as a transfer student only because of “an interview with a friendly Wharton admissions officer who was one of Freddy’s old high school classmates.” (Freddy is Donald’s older brother.) Trump was also the son of one of the wealthiest New York businessmen of the era, the developer Fred Trump. That certainly couldn’t have hurt his admission chances.

Writing in the New York Times magazine in 1984, William Geist reported that “the commencement program from 1968 does not list him as graduating with honors of any kind,” even though “just about every profile ever written about Mr. Trump states that he graduated first in his class at Wharton in 1968.”


Watch Trump Contradict Himself On Almost Every Issue

I found this on HuffPo. This really is a devastating video for Trump. The Clinton campaign should run it as an ad.

Secret Service spoke to Trump campaign about 2nd Amendment comment

Source: CNN

Updated 8:30 PM ET, Wed August 10, 2016

A US Secret Service official confirms to CNN that the USSS has spoken to the Trump campaign regarding his Second Amendment comments.

"There has been more than one conversation" on the topic, the official told CNN. But it's unclear at what level in the campaign structure the conversations occurred.

The campaign told the USSS that Donald Trump did not intend to incite violence, according to the official.

"No such meeting or conversation ever happened," Trump tweeted in response to CNN's report.

The controversy erupted on Tuesday afternoon when Trump said at a rally that Second Amendment defenders might be able to stop Clinton from appointing justices to the Supreme Court who could weaken gun rights.

Scarborough WaPo Editorial: The GOP must dump Trump

The Muslim ban, the David Duke denial, the “Mexican” judge flap, the draft dodger denigrating John McCain’s military service, the son of privilege attacking an immigrant Gold Star mother and the constant revisionism and lying about past political positions taken are but a few of the lowlights that have punctuated Donald Trump’s chaotic chase for the presidency.
And the political ride will only get rockier for Trump in the coming days after he suggested that one way to keep a conservative Supreme Court after Hillary Clinton got elected would be to assassinate her or federal judges. Trump and his supporters have been scrambling wildly all day to explain away the inexplicable, but they can stop wasting their time. The GOP nominee was clearly suggesting that some of the “Second Amendment people” among his supporters could kill his Democratic opponent were she to be elected.
We are in unchartered waters but that does not mean that the way forward is not clear. It is.
1. The Secret Service should interview Donald Trump and ask him to explain his threatening comments.
2. Paul Ryan and every Republican leader should denounce in the strongest terms their GOP nominee suggesting conservatives could find the Supreme Court more favorable to their desires if his political rival was assassinated.
3. Paul Ryan and every Republican leader should revoke their endorsement of Donald Trump. At this point, what else could Trump do that would be worse than implying the positive impact of a political assassination?
4. The Republican Party needs to start examining quickly their options for removing the Republican nominee.

A bloody line has been crossed that cannot be ignored. At long last, Donald Trump has left the Republican Party few options but to act decisively and get this political train wreck off the tracks before something terrible happens.
