Hey KT!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Ad! Nice article on Trump’s love affair with Putin.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Thanks! So much more has come to mind since I wrote it. Specifically, his obsessioon with tyrants only reflects how he sees leading a country. He never mentions a US President he respects…only dictators.
AdLib 7 days ago
How are you tovarich?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The new capitol of the US? Moscow, ID.
AdLib 7 days ago
A good point in your article is just how spineless the republicans are being in their failure to criticize Trump.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
There’s a Moscow in Maine! A tiny little burg.
KillgoreTrout

They are all anti-patriot. Can’t call them traitors honestly but they are betraying our countries principles.
AdLib 7 days ago
I didn’t know that. See! They are taking over!

Nyet!!!
AdLib 7 days ago
How about the CIC forum? What a disgusting Trump stroke fest. Lauer must be afraid of Trump.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I’m actually pretty pleased how many in the media tore Lauer apart for harping on the emails with Hillary, interriupting her constantly and snidely chiding her for criticizing Trump…while letting Trump lie and slander Hillary. In the end, Trump and his Putin reach around sunk him.
AdLib 7 days ago
I can’t wait for the debates!
AdLib 7 days ago
not one question about Trump’s attacks on a Gold Star family, or his remarks about John McCain being captured.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I hope Lauer is not moderating any of them.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Or his taking the purple heart or his BS deferment.
AdLib 7 days ago
Lauer isn’t, he’s such a fool. NBC purposely set up Hillary to be trashed and Trump to be treated gently. They want to manipulate the race to make it as close as possible. Scum.
AdLib 7 days ago
Corporate, greedy scum, that is.
AdLib 7 days ago
Exactly. when Hillary was pseaking, as soon as she even began to attack Trump, Lauer shut her down and when Trump started attacking not only Hillary, but the president, Lauer just sat there and let him babble on. Steam was shooting out of my ears! I’m so sick of Trump being coddled by the media!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
good thing is, Hillary eviscerated him the next day though.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Trump that is.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Yes and I’m glad that was obvious to the MSM too. Headlines that night were hoow horrible and slanted Lauer was…and honestly, it sure came off as sexist. Interrupt and reprimand the woman, let the man say whatever he wants.
AdLib 7 days ago
I think Hillary will use what happened to keep hammering Trump, especially in the debates.
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey Murph!
AdLib 7 days ago
Completely sexist. What a completely wasted opportunity for veterans and active military.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey commrade!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Well…only 30 minutes per candidate? It wasn’t serious from the start, just used vets as props and background for getting ratings.
AdLib 7 days ago
Commrade Murph!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey glenn!
AdLib 7 days ago
Hey sister commrade!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Unasked questions: What about his recently removed campaign manager with big financial ties to the pro-Russian Ukrainian Party whose leader had to flee the country in a popular uprising. What about Trump’s suggestions to expand the number of nations with nuclear weapons; or his lack of knowledge about the nature of the U.S. nuclear force? What about his stated intention to permit the use of torture to get information from those apprehended in the war on terrorist groups in violation of U.S. and International Law?
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
It was a Trump stroke fest Murph. Plain and simple!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Good evening, comrades! I say putin (that’s a spitting sound) on trump!
glenn

7 days ago
Patooi-in?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph, I think all of that will FINALLY come home to roost in the debates. He only goes on Fox News now, only reads from teleprompters, they are trying to hide who he is and what he’s said from the public and just attack Hillary. But he’ll have no teleprompter at the debates and Hillary will nail him on all the insane things he’s been saying…well…as many as can fit in that debate.
AdLib 7 days ago
TrumPutin! or TrumPutinstiltskin?
AdLib 7 days ago
Trump’s new campaign song.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–as long as it’s spit! I am beginning to hate our so-called liberal media! When, oh when, is Hillary going to be able to say, when questioned about her emails, “I don’t talk about that any more.” That’s what trump has said about his birtherism! Why doesn’t Hillary get to put the emails to rest?
glenn

7 days ago
Trump’s new nickname, “Spewtin'”.
AdLib 7 days ago
Lauer ….. that is what the Trump campaign would accept. My bet Trump will only do one debate…they will not be able to control NBC’s Lester Holt, CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC’s Martha Raddatz, and Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
i agree glenn. She should just say that issue has been settled, let’s move on.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
LOL! Too funny Ad!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–I love the hashtag, “laueringthebar”!
glenn

7 days ago
Ad–great nickname!
glenn

7 days ago
I WAS glad to see a lot of Lauer’s peers criticize him for such a poor performance.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–that’s the way she should answer.
glenn

7 days ago
KT–me too. You can’t send an entertainment shill to do a political reporter’s job….not that most of the political reporters are much better!
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – It is very surprising that with all this time to figure it out, Hillary still doesn’t have a strategy to close out the email issue. Yes, she has admitted it was wrong but how about backing that up with some firmness that it’s all been exaggerated like Benghazi, did not in fact cause any breech that affected anything…unlike disbanding NATO, giving Putin free rein to invade countries and destroy our economy by slashing taxes as Trump would. Take the punch then punch back and say what Bernie has, “Enough is enough”.
AdLib 7 days ago
I agree Murph. He pretty much HAS to do at least one. He’s probably soiling his depends at the prospect.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – I’ll bet that’s what he’d like to do but basing his candidacy on being so “macho”, Trump can’t afford to duck the debates and have Hillary brand him a coward.
AdLib 7 days ago
she doesn’t want to look like a victim Ad, especially a “female,” victim.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–I agree. That’s strange that she doesn’t have a strategy for those “damn emails.” Hopefully, she will have one in place during the debates.
glenn

7 days ago
The best Hillary answer to the e mail issue….per the Washington Post….

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/the-hillary-clinton-email-story-is-out-of-control/2016/09/08/692947d0-75fc-11e6-8149-b8d05321db62_story.html?utm_term=.c1f4f6968d9a

The Hillary Clinton email story is out of control
The attention paid to it has far surpassed the boundaries of the facts.

MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–actually, I don’t think trump is at all worried about the debates. No matter what happens, he will say he “won”, just like he has said about the CIC forum the other night. And, how his Mexico trip was such a success because the man who invited him got fired (or quit, I can’t remember which one).
glenn

7 days ago
hopefully, all the backlash against Lauer and his lousy performance, further questions about her e-mails will deminish. Then again!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – But this dancing around the email scandal is Hillary victimizing herself. She needs too be definitive, it was wrong but harmed no one, unlike everything Trump has said…and his words are already hurting the country.
AdLib 7 days ago
I agree Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I disagree glenn. Trump always puts on a bravado act. I think secretly he’s dreading the debates.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – Thanks for posting that, I read it and it’s right on the money. I hope that meme spreads in the MSM and Hillary could help enforce it by declaring that it’s been investigated and settled, there are many more important things to discuss now.
AdLib 7 days ago
KT–perhaps you’re right. But in some ways, it doesn’t matter what he’s thinking…all that matters is the nonsense he spews.
glenn

7 days ago
Especially since N. Korea just detonated another nuke. A big one too. Plus they’ve launched three ballistic missiles toward Japan.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
The post article hits three points….the newly revealed Powell blessing for working around a flawed State Dept. system; another set of empty Benghazi e mails and a memo from FBI Comey about a case that could not be made
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad and Murph–I agree with you Ad about the WP article. Hillary needs to start shutting down this shit NOW!
glenn

7 days ago
Agreed glen. Hillary is not going to fall for his reality TV antics.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Trump’s a contradiction, only someone horribly insecure could have such a needy ego yet he’s so obnoxious. I think he’s both afraid of the debates but also has the confidence of his ignorance, that he can hurl enough zingers at Hillary to convince undecided voters to vote for him. Really, they already don’t like him, seeing him be more obnoxious won’t win him more voters.
AdLib 7 days ago
If Trump can take a walk on birtherism….then Hillary can do the same on memoism.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Kerry just settled a deal with Russia, to conduct joint bombing of targets in Syria. in
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Memoism! I love it Murph! That’s some pretty good wordsmithing there!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–trump has taken a walk on way too many things, IMO. I still cannot believe that cowardly republicans are actually defending Putin. They have taken their Obama Derangement Syndrome way too far. Can you imagine if Hillary had praised Putin?
glenn

7 days ago
Trump is an adult child. A child grown old, but still a child.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I’d like Hillary to lead him back into using nukes in Europe too. If they’re smart, and they are, they could have her focus on bringing up all the unstable things he’s said and paint a picture throough them of how insane Trump is and how America and the world would explod if he was President. BTW, despite this being a low ebb for Hillary and her being off the campaign trail, she still is beating him hands down in the electoral college. I think Trump’s Putin Love will start his slide again and the debates could seal the deal.
AdLib 7 days ago
agree glenn, and the MSM has given way too many free passes.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Hey P! How you guys doing?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Hey PPO–how’s your Fergie doing?
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Unsurprisingly, Powell was disingenuous about this, trying to protect his legacy by painting a picture far more vague. He’s busted.
AdLib 7 days ago
The GOP defense of the Donald comes down to this….he is the only chance they have to keep two SCOTUS seats out of Clinton’s hands.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Hey PPO! Same here, what’s the latest on Fergie?
AdLib 7 days ago
our Fergie is still fighting the infection, but it seems to be getting a little better. The leg swellings aren’t as big. Mobility starting to increase. Hopefully things will accellerate from now.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
That’s really it Murph. still they are obviously, once again, putting party before country. Trump is just dangerous.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad…Powell…I have never been a fan since he left the Bush admin “for cause” but failed to pin it on them or to stop up to GOP nonsense as represented by Trump.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – Agreed, she should answer it then stonewall like Trump and let the MSM prove how unfair it treats her compared to him. They can be shamed into shutting up about that and talking about things that actually matter.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–so repubs will allow a madman to become POTUS because they think his choices will be better than HIllary’s? Do they think they will be able to control anything trump does?
glenn

7 days ago
mobility is a great sign, P! Glad to hear it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
thanks, Kt
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
did I see reports that Trump appears to be drawing closer to Hillary? How Come?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Our media P. They do everything they can to keep this a close race. They seem to care more about ratings than the future of our nation.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – As I mentioned in my post, can you imagine Obama in 2008 praising Putin and his popularity as a dictator? He would have been buried by the same MSM that walks on eggshells around their pot o’ gold, Trump.
AdLib 7 days ago
PPO–glad to hear she’s getting better. Hopefully she’ll beat that infection!
glenn

7 days ago
PPO For Fergie

MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ah, KT that explains it. If HRC is clearly winning, the interest will die down
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
obama took shit for two years because he said, on an overseas trip, that America has made some past mistakes we’re not proud of. Two YEARS!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Many thanks, Murph!
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
exactly P. gotta grab those ratings dollars.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO welcome.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – Yet watching “patriots” in the GOP being willing to hand influence in this country to Russia and Putin so they can use the SCOTUS to oppress more Americans…is so devoid of patriotism and principle. Party and power before country, disgusting.
AdLib 7 days ago
GOP is morally bankrupt!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad–I know, I just don’t get it. I thought we were so worried about facists, with what President Obama being one and all, but the republican love for putin is just despicable! I thought we hated facists. I guess if it’s your facist, it’s okay. Or, there is always the old standby: IOIYAR.
glenn

7 days ago
I heard a lady say today, that the media’s treatment of Trump makes her feel like she’s screaming warnings, but no one can hear her.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – Very good to hear! Was a little concerned about the infection, swelling going down and being able to move around is great news.
AdLib 7 days ago
Doen’t the MSM get it that, if Trump is elected, they can’t ever say ‘Boo”, because he’ll blackball every last one of ’em, except Fox, of course.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
KT–that’s a smart lady! I do think some people are hearing her; I just don’t think the liberal media is reporting on those people.
glenn

7 days ago
I know how she feels though glenn. I felt just like that during the CIC forum. The bogus CIC forum.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO–oh, trump will blackball the weaselly tv station (oops, I mean fox) if they piss him off enough. Of course, then the media can complain that he hasn’t held a press conference in ….days!
glenn

7 days ago
Great point Murph. I think that’s another reason they tread lightly around him.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – As we should know by now, anything a Repub uses to attack Obama, Hillary or a Dem is insincere, it’s just the nearest blunt object they can grab. They have no principles. Look at Trump’s lies about Hillary doing “Pay for Play”, all unfounded lies…meanwhile Trump is documented doing Pay for Play with Pam Bondi in FL to stop her suing Trump University. Repubs have only temporary principles…when they work for an attack.
AdLib 7 days ago
There are rumours that Trump is planning to start his own “news,” network if he loses.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn, which ‘liberal’ media are we talking about? the Fundamentalist Religious liberals, the Murdoch liberals?
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
kT TRUMP=AILES=BREITBART
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT – I really do believe that the debates will be cathartic for all the people who feel that the true danger of Trump is being overlloked by the MSM. The moderators will be more focused on him and Hillary will nail him. His days of hiding will sooon be over.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad, I hope Bondi is Beached pretty soon, and Trump indicted
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
Exactly Murph!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
BRB
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
I sure hope you’re right Ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
PPO – Nope, the MSM is owned by the greedy who only care about how they can get wealthier today. They don’t care about the damage it brings in the future, the economic crash proved that.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I agree with what you’re saying. When will the liberal media start pointing that out? I also think that the Democratic Party and any Democrat in Congress should be finding a microphone at every opportunity and calling out trump for all his lies, all his unpatriotic statements, and should be calling for an investigation into the trump foundation. Every democrat, every day should be shouting these things from whatever podium, medium, and/or microphone they can. This shit of the republicans controlling the narrative has gone on long enough!
glenn

7 days ago
ad, surely they must realize that if the damage is severe enough, it will effect them too, and not in a good way.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
AD….I HOPE YOU ARE CORRECT ABOUT THE DEBATE…given the recent polling both national and by state….the fickle low info easily impressed voter at work
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
PPO – Like it, she’ll be a Beached Bondi!
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn…I am with you Trump must be taken down by any means necessary.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
PPO–the liberal media that the republicans talk about all the time. It must be true, if republicans say it is, right?
glenn

7 days ago
Murph–and Bondi and the AG in Texas should be taken down with him.
glenn

7 days ago
glenn – The big problem in this country is that people are off in their own bubble too much, listening primarily to a news source they feel is more in tune with them. So those watching Fox aren’t hearing the outrage that’s in other media outlets. That’s why the debates will make a huge difference, that’s when Fox viewers will have to share the same forum as the rest oof us in reality. Trump supporters will just shrug it off and stay in denial but undecideds will be swayed against Trump, seeing him like that.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–I so hope you’re right. And I hope Hillary NEVER smiles during the debates, except to mock trump!
glenn

7 days ago
I just have to say, I’ve been pretty impressed with Hillary lately. She is absolutely presidential. I just hope she doesn’t go overboard in her fight against ISIS!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Trump astounds me. He is juggling a half dozen outrageous lies – all of which are easily deflated…but it fails to impress those who lean his way.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–I agree. As I mentioned above in my post to Ad about her smiling, I think she had the perfect response to the preibus tweet. “That’s what presidents are supposed to look like.”
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Polls ebb and flow, Hillary has been hammered over CGI and the emails recently as well as being off the trail while fundraising, this is about as low as I think she goes. The Trump embrace of Putin is hurting him and putting him back in the spotlight which helps Hillary. Remember, if this is a referendum on Trump, his numbers drop. As long as the news is about him being outrageoous, Hillary benefits, he loses. And after the first debate, he will be in very bad shape.
AdLib 7 days ago
glenn, Hillary was criticized for not smiling during the CIC forum. Isn’t thaat so typical of a misogynist world. Oh she a female, so she should be smiling and pleasant.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph–it’s not so much trump who astounds me as the people who support him. I just don’t get it!
glenn

7 days ago
exactly. One of the things that made W look so insincere was that he get this goofy smile, or grin when talking about very serious matters.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad….hope you are correct. With your ok, I would like to use your image and post re. Putin and Trump (with credit of course) to drive that particular crap home.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–yup, and my response as a female is fuck you and the horse you rode in on if you don’t like my facial expressions. Have you noticed trump’s expressions? When does he smile?
glenn

7 days ago
Think about it, who has held Trump’s feet to the fire on anything since the GOP primary ended? Hillary has nailed him in speeches but most interviewers are Fox News drones. The debates are when that all ends.
AdLib 7 days ago
That’s why I love ya glenn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Thanks, KT!
glenn

7 days ago
Hillary is killing him with the TV ads though Ad. They’re pretty devastating.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT but ads or no, the polls are closing
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – You’re welcome of course to share my post, as always. But I didn’t create the graphic, just so you know. When I do, there’s always a Planet logo on it.
AdLib 7 days ago
Thanks to the MSM. I don’t think that’s going to last for much longer.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Has anyone seen the documentary CNN did on trump? Any thoughts on that? The only good thing I heard about it is that trump hated it.
glenn

7 days ago
Oh….AD….Where does the image come from?
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
It really is a great graphic!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Right with you…as a guy though! Lauer’s interrupting, disrespecting and needling Hillary on the emails was sexist compared to the kid glove treatment of Trump.
AdLib 7 days ago
Sorry folks, gotta go. the memsahib is feeling very seedy today. Gotta take care of her.
pinkpantheroz

7 days ago
A picture being worth a thousand words, and all.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn..I saw both documentaries…..both impressed me….I was more for Hillary after, and more against Trump after.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
G’night PPO–take care of your Fergie. Hope she continues to improve.
glenn

7 days ago
Wish her well for me P. Take care of both of you!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – Wonkette.
AdLib 7 days ago
Bye PPO best to your dear one.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Does anyone here think Trump could beat Hillary in the debates?
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–you refer to both documentaries. Both on trump? Or one on Hillary and one on trump?
glenn

7 days ago
not me. It really depends a lot on the moderation ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–You win the question of the night with that one! The only way trump will beat Hillary in the debates is when trump declares himself the winner the next day on twitter.
glenn

7 days ago
Wonkette! I need to take a look.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT – Trump doesn’t have the chops for winning in a Presidential debate. He has noo control of facts to look Presidential, all he can do is make personal attacks. Works fine in GOP Primary but he doesn’t have the necessary skills to win in aPresidential debate…especially against Hillary.
AdLib 7 days ago
Glenn…the one on her, the one on him.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – Just the graphic is from Wonkette, just to be clear, the article is by me.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad….that I got and will credit. And Link.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph–I have a terrible attention span lately, (which means I can’t pay attention to these things too long), but I guess I’m going to have to watch them on line when I can.
glenn

7 days ago
oh, I agree, I just don’t trust the moderators to be tough on him. Hillary will win, but many will say Trump did. I bet on it.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I just googled Putin and baby Trump, and clicked on the image header. There it was.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
And now that it looks like LIbertarians will not be on the stage…it will be just Trump and Clinton
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
A leppo?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Agreed, Trump can only win debates in his own head and his campaign bubble. A Presidential debate is about conducting oneself in a Presidential way, showing you have the details and calm thought to do the job. De facto, he can’t do that.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–trump has no control of facts, because he doesn’t use facts. He only uses what his brain tells him, which is attack Hillary and President Obama. I wonder if anyone has ever told him that he’s not running against President Obama?
glenn

7 days ago
You betcha!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
i guess Gary doesn’t follow current events much!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Gary was gobsmacked!
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad–he’s already proven he can’t conduct himself in a presidential way during the CIC forum, but that hasn’t stopped his supporters from saying he “won.”
glenn

7 days ago
glenn, in Trump’s mind, Hillary and Obama are one and the same. They’re interchangeable.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn…yeppers.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
KT–well, that explains a lot.
glenn

7 days ago
so was the interviewer, Murph!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – But Hillary would have to also not be tough on him and that ain’t gonna happen.
AdLib 7 days ago
i hope she eviscerates him.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
A verbal disembowling, if you will!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT–I hope he starts bleeding from his whatever…and that it’s visible bleeding!
glenn

7 days ago
Question! Is rump going to be forced to face up to his birther legacy?
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
LOL glenn. Poetic justice!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – And most of those Johnson votes will go to Hillary. Johnson is burning out now after his unfamiliarity with that guy, Al Leppo.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–much as I dislike Chris Matthews, seems that he is trying to hold trump and his supporters “accountable” for that.
glenn

7 days ago
johnson thought he was being asked about a popular canned dog food!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad..he thought it was an acronym.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
GARY JOHNSON: “Oh, oh yeah, I think it’s terrible to be ‘a leper’.”
AdLib 7 days ago
Especially an Italian one!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Wasn’t Al Leppo one of the Marx Brothers?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad and Murph–you know, in Johnson’s defense, aren’t libertarians opposed to foreign interventions, wars, etc. So, I really don’t think foreign affairs are his strong suit.
glenn

7 days ago
Grouch, Chico, Harpo and Leppo?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Yes but it doesn’t matter if Trump crashes in the polls while his supporters claim he’s winning debates. All that matters is that he affirms how unqualified he is to be President and just by being Trump, he will.
AdLib 7 days ago
But it really was funny watching the panelists reaction?
glenn

7 days ago
glenn –
AdLib 7 days ago
hilarious glenn!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
KT – You too!
AdLib 7 days ago
I think Gary may have had an “herbal suppliment,” before the interview!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
thanks ad.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–what really matters is that enough people vote against trump and that he loses in a landslide!
glenn

7 days ago
KT–perhaps one too many herbal supplements?
glenn

7 days ago
I like the ND events….Obama to the rescue.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Possibly!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Not a good excuse for Johnson to hide behind, you can’t be elected as Domestic President Only, Johnson’s disqualified himself big time from being CIC.
AdLib 7 days ago
Murph–as usual POTUS to the rescue. I am going to miss that man in the Oval Office!
glenn

7 days ago
Fantastic decision Murph! Frickin great!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Glenn….me too…very much so.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Ad–I know it’s not a good excuse, just saying it’s probably why he didn’t know it immediately.
glenn

7 days ago
Gary is going to start his own party. The NORMAL party.
KillgoreTrout

glenn – I think that we’ll see a powerful turnout by anti-Trump voters, especially minorities. As we know, fear works and the fear of Trump winning will motivate voters strongly.
AdLib 7 days ago
i bet your right glenn. Well after the Johnson flap, he probably knows it now. Ooo Johnson flap sounded a bit dirty!
KillgoreTrout

Ad–I love the idea of taco trucks as voter registration centers! It’s really catching on, I think. I read an article today that trump has only about 11-12% support from Latinos–even lower than Johnson’s Latino support! Love it!

i’m amazed there is that much Latino support for Trump. Sad!
KillgoreTrout

glenn – Right, I agree with you. Johnson is all about doomestic policies (including SS, Medicare and Obamacare, despite his cuddly presentation of himself). But his lack of interest and curiosity in world events will now bury him.
AdLib 7 days ago
Exactly Murph.

KT….what Latino support are you addressing?

TRUMP: “I know what Uhleppoh is but I won’t tell you, I’m not gooing to let the enemy know what I do and don’t know!”

Trump supporters, the 12%,supposedly!

Hillary should have her campaign arrange for taco trucks to be parked near polling places!
AdLib 7 days ago
I think among black voters it’s really only 1%.
KillgoreTrout

KT–damn, if trump ever gets near the Oval Office, that first hour is going to be jam-packed with “policy”.
glenn

I wonder if Trump is getting pissed at Pence….response to the intelligence briefing perfectly appropriate, releasing 10 years of tax info, and his full medical report.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Hey, voters gotta eat!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Murph – Not only that, Trump doesn’t try to say one true thing to any audience. Again, not something he can sustain in the Presidential debates.
AdLib 7 days ago
it’ll be AMAZING glenn, like nothing you’ve ever seen before, simply fabulous! Baleeeve me!
KillgoreTrout

Latino Trump supporters hate Mexican food.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–but the only one who is going to tell trump he’s lying is Hillary. Apparently the moderators are not going to “fact check” trump.

KT–I believe you, bro!

KT – Trump will solve the “a leopard” issue by just “bombing the hell out of them”.
AdLib 7 days ago
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Oh man, o leopard shit all over the place!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Trump will probably declare an hour to last 40 years so he doesn’t have to apologize.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad–will that be carpet bombing, drone bombing, or dirty bombing? And will Mexico pay for it?
glenn

7 days ago
kinda like the bible!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
That whole 6,000 year thingy!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Ad–but if trump did apologize, it would be the best apology, using the best words, dontcha know?
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Very curious how Pence seems to be supporting Trump on Putin but undermining him on the tax returns. Pence has no future, he may think he dooes though.
AdLib 7 days ago
Smear some jelly on Pence…he’s toast!
KillgoreTrout

KT–good one! But a not very appealing visual!

Eeeew!

sorry!

MurphTheSurf3

LOL Murph. Is that an image of Pence, burned into the toast, under the jelly?
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Could be.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
glenn – Possibly, we know that Chris Wallace will let Trump lie endlessly in that debate but we don’t know if that will be the case in the oothers. And in the end, Hillary will nail him on it and the MSM won’t be able to avoid confirming it.
AdLib 7 days ago
it’s a miricle I tells ya!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
glenn – Mexico will be too busy building a wall and a Trump hotel to pay for that.
AdLib 7 days ago
ad, I agree with Murph. There may be only one debate. I mean, Trump HAS to do at least one, or he’ll look like a real chicken shit.
KillgoreTrout

Hey, a Wall with rooms!

Trump was on a radio talk show yesterday…a conservative one…usual BS…but the interviewer was not having it…the third time Trump said “Believe Me” the host said….”I will only believe you if you convince me and that takes facts, figures and specific plans.” The interview ended shortly thereafter.
MurphTheSurf3

Murph – Of course, red jam! He’s a red!

Friday Night Rally Trump: “With Iran, when they circle our beautiful destroyers with their little boats and they make gestures at our people that they shouldn’t be allowed to make, they will be shot out of the water,” Trump said.

He’s a real commrade! A regular tovarich!
KillgoreTrout

KT – Trump will be destroyed in the polls if he doesn’t attend all the debates, Hillary and her surrogates will be crushing him as an abject coward, “If he’s too afraid to stand up to me, how can he possibly stand up to his new best friend, Putin?”
AdLib 7 days ago
More Friday Night Trump: Trump said Clinton avoiding prosecution over her email scandal was her single greatest accomplishment, and added that she could kill somebody at the rally and get away with it. “Because she’s being so protected, she could walk into this arena right now and shoot someone with 20,000 people watching, right smack in the middle of the heart, and she wouldn’t be prosecuted,” Trump said. “That’s what’s happened to our country.” The comments brought to mind a statement Trump made in the GOP primary, when he said he could kill people and not lose the favor of his supporters. “I have the most loyal people, did you ever see that? I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters,” he said in Iowa in January.
MurphTheSurf3

I heard that Murph. Trump is not just a joke, he’s actually dangerous, on a global scale.
KillgoreTrout

His madness has become the acceptable background noise in this campaign. His recklessness and inanity is no longer news.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – Wow, that’s surprising he did that interview when it wasn’t rigged to be a softball toss. Who was the interviewer?
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad….I heard the report on POTUS SIrius radio but missed the station and interviewer. Hoping to find it.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph – No surprise that Trump’s answer to everything is “Shoot ’em!” or “Bomb ’em!”. Of course, that’s what Iran’s military would love so they could go back to developing nukes.
AdLib 7 days ago
Ad….Trump is detested by many on the real right.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Well, gang, got to go. This has been fun.
MurphTheSurf3

7 days ago
Murph–more projection from trump. As you say, trump has already said he could shoot someone, so why wouldn’t his tiny little brain think that Hillary thinks the same way he does? Did he really say that? What is wrong with that man? Or more specifically, what is wrong with the people who support him? What is wrong with repubs that they think it’s okay that their candidate for president says things like that?
glenn

7 days ago
Murph – Yes, that’s what first came to mind for me, Trump’s shooting on 5th Ave. This too would be a trap for Trump in a debate, Hillary would just need too ask, “You’re claiming that Comey is croooked?”

G’night Murph. Have a good one!

Murph–damn straight!

glenn – Trump doesn’t have any relationship with truth or consistency. Not only does he praise Putin but he attacks Hillary for trying a reset with Russia. There is no such thing as consistency in that loon’s mind.

TRUMP: “Our concentration camps will be so humane, believe me! They will be the most deluxe you’ve ever seen. And the way we’ll execute illegal immigrant will be beautiful, trust me!”
AdLib 7 days ago
His extremism is what fueled his rise but will keep the Presidency firmly out of reach.
AdLib 7 days ago
There are simply too many paralells between some of the things TRump says, that are completey in line with things he surely read in Mein Kampf! Seriously. I can’t think of an example right now, but i’ve noticed several, in the past. His whole attitude toward foreign affairs for example.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
I’ve heard that Trump did read Mein Kampf.
AdLib 7 days ago
I agree. He’s ultimately just a bit too fanatical for reasonable, thinking people.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
yeah, that supposed to be true. Probably one of the few he’s ever read.. That’s makes it even scarier.

He’s dreamed of being a dictator for much of his life…and has run his businesses that way (into the ground).
AdLib 7 days ago
i would say Machiavelli too, but that’s probably a little too dense for Trump!
KillgoreTrout

His admiration for “strong leaders,” is quite telling.
KillgoreTrout

i know that Roy Coen taught Trump well.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
coen, among other evils, was a mafia defense lawyer.
KillgoreTrout

That’s beyond fiction! Trump having Cohn work for him!
AdLib 7 days ago
He was more Trump’s tutor.

And McCarthy’s partner in crime!

cohn, not Coen. I must have been thing of the filmaker brothers.

oh yeah, He and Tail Gunner Joe were thick as thieves.
KillgoreTrout

mine too. I love their films. Unique.

So Cohn, David Duke, Hitler, Putin, etc., all of the worst are part of Trump’s sphere!

You’ve named 3 of my faves, Raising Arizona, No Time For Old Men and of course, Fargo.
AdLib 7 days ago
Adding to yours, that is!
AdLib 7 days ago
No such thing as seeing Big Lebowski too much!
AdLib 7 days ago
oh yeah, it’s tough to pick just one. Like Lay’s potato chips.
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
Exactly. They’ve had some that I wasn’t crazy about, The Man Who Wasn’t There is one of them.
AdLib 7 days ago
That has got to be, in my opinion, one of the funniest movies ever made. The sheer brilliant sarcasm and give a shit attitude is priceless. not to mention Walter Sobchak!
KillgoreTrout

7 days ago
But they are very original and creative. Oh yeah, Barton Fink!
AdLib 7 days ago
Burn After Reading was another good one, I thought.

That’s one that grew on me after time. First saw it and thought it very slight but have come to enjoy it more and more.
AdLib 7 days ago
That’s it, “Shut the fuck up, Donny!” And of course, “The Dude abides.”

Just need to superimpose Trump’s face over the Dragon’s!

Yep, they rival each other for dialogue and comedy. Great lines in both!
