Trump Creeps Out America By Trying To Kiss A Little Girl Who Didn’t Want To Be Kissed[/b[

Donald Trump thought it would be a great idea to change his image by kissing a young African-American girl on stage during his rally in Wisconsin. The result was creepy on every level imaginable.


Donald Trump thought it would be a great idea to change his image by kissing a young African-American girl on stage during his rally in Wisconsin. The result was creepy on every level imaginable.

Clearly, the young lady wanted nothing to do with this stranger kissing her.

However, the scene gets truly creepy when you realize that he tried to kiss a child on the mouth. Trump has repeatedly made sexual comments about underage girls, so it is not a good idea in any way, shape or form to have Trump out in public giving little girls unwanted kisses on the mouth.

The whole scene was off-putting and confirmed the image of Donald Trump underage girl oogling, creepy sexual predator, who should never be allowed within 500 feet of a public school.

The CEO of Wells Fargo is out

Matt Turner and Bob Bryan

John Stumpf, the chairman and CEO of Wells Fargo is retiring effective immediately.

Stumpf has recently come under fire for a scandal in which 2 million credit and debit card accounts were opened by bank employees without the knowledge of customers.

His successor, Tim Sloan, is chief operating officer of the firm and has been with the bank for over 25 years. Sloan has primarily worked in commercial real estate lending during his time at the bank, and had only taken the position as COO in November.

The bank also appointed Stephen Sanger as non-executive chairman, splitting the CEO and chairman role. Elizabeth Duke has been named vice chair.

Stumpf resigns just two weeks after lawmakers, most notably Senator Elizabeth Warren, called for the CEO's resignation. Lawmakers also pushed for a split of the chairman and CEO roles.

SALT LAKE CITY — Republican Donald Trump appears to have, in his earlier words, "a tremendous problem in Utah" as a new poll shows him slipping into a dead heat with Democrat Hillary Clinton since crude comments he made about women surfaced last weekend.

And along with the billionaire businessman's sudden fall, independent candidate and BYU graduate Evan McMullin surged into a statistical tie with the two major party presidential nominees, according to survey conducted Monday and Tuesday by Salt Lake City-based Y2 Analytics.

"A third-party candidate could win Utah as Utahns settle on one," said Quin Monson, Y2 Analytics founding partner.

McMullin may well have caught lightning in a bottle.

The poll shows Clinton and Trump tied at 26 percent, McMullin with 22 percent and Libertarian Gary Johnson getting 14 percent if the election were held today. Y2 Analytics surveyed 500 likely Utah voters over landlines and cellphones Oct. 10-11 The poll has a plus or minus 4.4 percent margin of error.

Arizona Senator John McCain has withdrawn his support for Donald Trump and will write in a "good conservative Republican" at the polls next month.

McCain, a former presidential candidate, is perhaps the highest profile elected official to flee Trump, who has said he will not withdraw from the race for president despite increasing calls to do so from across the political spectrum after audio tapes emerged Friday showing Trump making demeaning comments about women.

"I have wanted to support the candidate our party nominated. He was not my choice, but as a past nominee, I thought it important I respect the fact that Donald Trump won a majority of the delegates by the rules our party set. I thought I owed his supporters that deference," McCain told Politico.

"But Donald Trump’s behavior this week, concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comments about women and his boasts about sexual assaults, make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy. (Wife) Cindy, with her strong background in human rights and respect for women, fully agrees with me in this."

There Are Transcripts Of Trump’s Unaired Moments On ‘The Apprentice.’ We Got One.
The Republican nominee was hypercritical of one up-and-coming singer’s skin.

Top Democratic operatives have offered to pay millions of dollars for unaired footage of Donald Trump on the set of “The Apprentice,” hoping to unearth another unscripted moment like the one that surfaced Friday from 2005, when Trump said he would grab women “by the pussy.”

But it’s not just videos they should be looking for. “The Apprentice,” executive produced by Mark Burnett, had a transcript service. And on some occasions, transcribers captured moments that didn’t end up on air, according to multiple sources involved in the show.

It’s not clear how many transcripts exist. Sources say that some transcribers occasionally stuck to what they felt would end up in the program, while others took notes of what was said, regardless of whether it would air.

Those at “The Apprentice” have been intensely guarded about both the transcripts and the unaired footage. Burnett is reportedly a Trump supporter who has threatened to sue employees who leak material in violation of their nondisclosure agreements.

Yet The Huffington Post was able to obtain and authenticate one transcript of an episode from the show’s ninth season. The material isn’t as jaw-dropping as Trump’s 2005 hot mic moment, but it does further illustrate the Republican presidential nominee’s obsession with women’s looks ― a trait that has drawn even more scrutiny since Trump’s boasts that his fame allowed him to grope women have become public. (Trump has denied doing this.)

Ana Navarro lays waste to Scottie Nell Hughes for trying to whitewash Trump’s gross behavior

Source: The Raw Story

The fallout from Donald Trump bragging about women’s genitals is still dominating cable news, and Trump’s surrogates are still flailing away trying to defend him.

On CNN’s New Day Monday morning, Trump supporter Scottie Nell Hughes said that the words Trump used to describe women’s genitals were “derogatory” and were “not allowed” to be said in her own home.

Fellow panelist Ana Navarro quickly pounced and pointed out that Hughes is still supporting Trump for president despite the fact that he says things like this on a regular basis.

“Do you not see the irony in saying that these words are unacceptable to you… and yet you are willing to come on TV be an apologist for a candidate who is running for the highest office in the land, and yet is saying these words,” Navarro said. “Apparently, Scottie, when Donald Trump says ‘pussy,’ he’s referring to a baby cat.”

I'm definitely no republican fan, but I love how Ana has been bitching out Trumpsters.

Another Newspaper Breaks Conservative Tradition With Endorsement Of Hillary Clinton

Source: The Huffington Post

The Columbus Dispatch broke from a centurylong tradition of endorsing Republican presidential nominees on Sunday when it announced its support for Democrat Hillary Clinton in this year’s election.

“For us, the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is not pleasant, but it isn’t difficult,” the Dispatch editorial board wrote. “Republican candidate Donald Trump is unfit to be president of the United States. Democrat Hillary Clinton, despite her flaws, is well-equipped for the job.”

“The Dispatch traditionally has endorsed Republican presidential candidates, but Trump does not espouse or support traditional Republican values, such as fiscal prudence, limited government and free trade, not to mention civility and decency,” the board continued. “We are disappointed that so many Republican leaders have accommodated a narcissistic, morally bankrupt candidate who is so clearly out of step with those values.”

The announcement came just weeks after the Cincinnati Enquirer, another major newspaper in Ohio, endorsed Clinton on the grounds that her opponent, Republican Donald Trump, presented “a clear and present danger” to the United States.

CNN contributor unloads on Trump surrogate for asking her not to repeat Trump's explicit language

Source: The Hill

A CNN contributor ripped a Donald Trump surrogate for telling her on the air not repeat one of the bad words Trump used in a newly leaked tape from 2005.

In the tape, Trump can be heard bragging about being able to do anything to a woman thanks to his star power, including groping them in the “p---y.”

“Every single Republican is going to have to answer the question, 'What did you do the day you saw the tape of this man boasting about grabbing a women’s p---y,'” Ana Navarro, a GOP strategist, told a CNN panel.
