Trump's phone calls

In each of his presidential speeches, Donald Trump will recall how someone called him and expressed either amazement at his polling, or begged him to take a business deal. Sometimes he will refer to them by name, other times they will go unnamed but described, for example, as a "very well-known journalist" or "one of the richest businessman around." Then this caller will say (and Trump will soften his voice in mimicry) "I can't believe how well you're polling, I can't believe how many people are pulling for you!" Or they will beg to Trump, saying, (Trump will soften his voice) "Please take this deal, please let us do business with us, we need your help!"

Each of these callers, as Trump suggests, are just totally amazed and impressed and dazzled by him, desperate and besides ones self if they cannot work with him.

has anyone else caught this trend in his speeches

HBO film about Clarence Thomas confirmation (Greg Kinnear is Biden, Kerry Washington is Anita Hill)

first look at Kerry as Anita Hill

HBO’s Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas biopic “Confirmation” has added several more stars — including Greg Kinnear as then-Sen. Joe Biden.

The current US vice president was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committe in 1991 and presided over Thomas’ Supreme Court confirmation hearings, in which Hill (Kerry Washington) came forward to accuse Thomas (Wendell Pierce) of sexual harassment.

Jennifer Hudson has also boarded the film playing Angela Wright, another witness who claimed sexual harassment but was never called to testify.

“The Americans” star Alison Wright has been cast as Thomas’ wife, Virginia, and Jeffrey Wright will play Hill’s lawyer, Charles Ogletree.


Set for 2016.

Dumbass debate audience booing before Huckabee's joke finished

Was it not obvious that his punchline was going to be "Hillary Clinton"? Not for some of them! Watch the video at 52 minutes/25 seconds.

Your predictions for the debate

Will someone challenge Trump on his merchandise being made in China and Mexico?

Will Trump restrain himself or go full on belligerent?

Is Trump seriously running?

What's the DU verdict? Does Trump think he really could be President? Or is he planning on dropping out, to enjoy the attention and opportunities that having run will give him?

I can't figure him out. Sometimes I think he's smart enough to know being President is difficult, to say the least, but other times I think he's delusional enough to believe he COULD do the job happily.
