Donald Trump: I Want To Hit Some Of Those DNC Speakers So Hard Their Head Would Spin

ABC News reports:

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Thursday afternoon he wanted to “hit” some of the Democratic National Convention speakers “so hard” while watching them last night, including a “little guy…so hard his head would spin.”

“You know what I wanted to. I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard,” Trump said. “I would have hit them. No, no. I was going to hit them, I was all set and then I got a call from a highly respected governor.”

Trump didn’t immediately clarify what he meant, but he said he was made particularly upset by an unspecified person he called a “little guy.”

“I was gonna hit one guy in particular, a very little guy,” he said. “I was gonna hit this guy so hard his head would spin and he wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”

Hillary Clinton Just Obliterated Trump With A Single Line Of Her Acceptance Speech

Clinton summed up the choice in the 2016 election with a single line that was a knockout blow on Donald Trump.

Hillary Clinton Just Obliterated Trump With A Single Line Of Her Acceptance Speech

Clinton summed up the choice in the 2016 election with a single line that was a knockout blow on Donald Trump.

She said, “Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.”

Hillary Clinton set Trump up. If he takes the bait and goes off on Twitter, he proves Clinton’s point. If Donald Trump lacks the self-discipline to back away from Twitter, he will show that he is someone with a thin skin who can’t be trusted.

Clinton boxed Trump in. Unlike all of the Republicans who tried to stop him during the primary, the Clinton campaign found the single line that sums up Trump.

Donald Trump didn’t lay a glove on Hillary Clinton in Cleveland, but Clinton delivered the clip that will be playing all over cable news for the next 24 hours.

Hillary Clinton is an entirely different league, and Donald Trump doesn’t have a clue.

Trump already having a meltdown. And the real sparring hasn't even begun.

Imagine trump fingers pushing that nuclear bomb button everytime he has a meltdown!!

The trouble Lena is that the red button may only allow one push.

Republicans like to talk about reducing the size of government. Naturally, they are usually asked how they will do this. They response is usually very quick "we will eliminate two or three departments". When asked which departments they will eliminate, they all will say "Department of Education". That one is automatic for them and then they struggle to come up with the others. Sometimes they will meekly say "Environmental Protection". If you listen to Dick Morris, Bill O'Reilly, Shaun Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, they all have the same position. Education is useless. To be educated is to be part of the elites. So you see the quality of their writers and that of the Democrats during their respective conventions. This one quote by Hillary very succinctly describe Trump and according to a report, squeezed him in a corner where he is now acting like a trapped animal. "A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.” Imagine he said today that so far he was being nice. He said that the gloves are off from now. He must be delusional to think that he was nice till now. Republicans are about to have their "Brexit" moment. But they have only themselves to blame because after the 2008 elections when they couldn't deal with a black man living in the white, they chose to become bigoted, hateful and destructive.

I doubt it. He criticized President Obama for name calling Trump a demagogue. He said that name calling is not acceptable in public discourse. He was asked to be Trump running mate. He had the choice to say yes or no. He said yes to be the running mate of the person most notable for name calling. He would have been credible if he had refused like Kasich to partner with the most vile, ill mannered and ignorant person ever to compete for President of the US. Which other presidential candidate ever said that he wants to punch a person so hard that their face spins around. Yet he or Pence doesn't think he should be ashamed of his actions. Nearly 8 years ago, Obama held a forum in Philly to discuss the harsh words of his pastor. Not even his words. Yet Trump says the most vile things and Pence endorses it. Credible, I think not.

Why the world wants Clinton to win

Andrew Hammond is an associate at LSE IDEAS at the London School of Economics.

After a wild two weeks of the Republican and Democratic conventions, the U.S. election campaign proper is now on. The convention season will be remembered, most notably, for the selection of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton as the first woman to become a presidential candidate for a major political party. This is a massive moment in U.S. history, particularly coming so soon after the 2008 election of the country’s first black president, Barack Obama.

While Ms. Clinton had the lead in numerous recent national polls over Republican Donald Trump, the outcome is far from sure in what will likely be a brutal, negative contest. But the world wants her to win, and if foreigners were allowed to vote in November’s election, she would prevail by a landslide.

Ms. Clinton was the standout winner, for example, with some 20,000 people in G20 countries, including Canada, according to a poll by Handelsblatt earlier this year. Among the G20 countries other than the United States, the only one where Mr. Trump bested Ms. Clinton was Russia.

That Ms. Clinton would win in a global contest against Mr. Trump, despite the reservations some hold about her, partially reflects bigger concerns that many foreigners have about the billionaire businessman’s fiery rhetoric and policy positions. It is no coincidence that the G20 country where she received most support was Mexico, which Mr. Trump has widely assailed as part of his incredible proposal to build a border wall.

Aside from the anti-Trump effect, however, many want Ms. Clinton as president given the strong role she played as secretary of state in the Obama administration in helping to restore the U.S. reputation in the world following George W. Bush’s presidency. In 2009, Mr. Obama and Ms. Clinton confronted a situation in which anti-U.S. sentiment was at about its highest levels since at least the Vietnam War, a situation that could be repeated if Donald Trump were elected in November.

Significant efforts have been made to turn around this climate of international perception. Within a year of Mr. Obama and Ms. Clinton assuming office, for example, several opinion surveys found that anti-Americanism was generally on the decline again, with favourable perceptions of the United States having increased by about 30 percentage points in some countries in 2009 over 2008, according to the Pew Global Attitude Projects.

As secretary of state, Ms. Clinton was instrumental by championing a smart-power strategy that sought to rebalance the overwhelming emphasis on hard power (especially military might) during the Bush presidency more toward soft power (including enhanced diplomacy). John Kerry picked up on this smart-power road map after taking over from Ms. Clinton, by continuing to emphasize priorities such as championing a new global climate change deal in Paris last November; the U.S. opening-up initiative to Cuba; and the nuclear deal with Iran.

U.S. global diplomacy has not been without setbacks during the Obama years; perhaps the biggest failure has been toward what the President has called the Islamic world. Despite the early promise of his Cairo speech in 2009, in which he sought to reset U.S. relations with Muslim-majority countries, pockets of very high anti-Americanism remain in several key countries, including Pakistan and Egypt, which have not been substantially addressed.

This is precisely one of the key reasons why much of the world wants Ms. Clinton in the White House. For at the very time when the United States should redouble its efforts to win the battle for “hearts and minds” in Muslim-majority countries, Mr. Trump has all the makings of a diplomatic disaster. His indiscriminate plan to “shut down” Muslim immigration into the United States has provoked anger and been widely condemned.

While a Trump victory cannot be ruled out in November, Ms. Clinton would win by a landslide if foreigners were allowed to vote. The world wants her to win not just to avoid the diplomatic disaster of a Trump presidency, but also because her vision of U.S. foreign policy is widely shared by many around the world.

While indeed Trump and Pence will secure votes in November 2016, their actions continue to show their misunderstanding of the fundamental elements of being involved in an election.

Is Hillary credible?

Far more credible than Trump. And she more than Trump has contributed to public service all her life. Actually, even Trump was unable to point out any area where he has contributed to public service. Trump is selling pigs in bags and I would expect only fools will believe him. So you need to jump off that train wreck gyal.

Here is a narcissist who proclaimed that he will be the greatest US president ever. His economy will be the best economy ever. He will make America the greatest ever. And he tells you that you will like it. But he also told us that Milania knocked her speech out of the park and then we find out that she actually stole parts from the current First Lady. Remember when he came out after the speech he said "was she great or what?" Not to forget he bragged of how great the Republican National Convention was and when it paled miserably in comparison to the Democratic national Convention both in style and substance, he proclaimed that he was not responsible for the planning of the convention at all and all he had to do was come out to give a speech.

So if he was to become President and failed miserably, he would just say that he was not responsible for people voting for him. All he had to do is say that he will make America great again. Emptiness personified.

The GOP's Donald Trump freak-out

Stephen Collinson Profile

, Updated 5:15 PM ET, Wed August 3, 2016, http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/03/...p-campaign-disarray/

Story highlights

  • Washington is still trying to come to terms with one of the most bizarre days in recent campaign history
  • RNC chairman is especially frustrated with Trump's comments that he isn't endorsing Ryan

(CNN)Republicans are freaking out about Donald Trump, but the candidate himself is insisting his campaign has never been in better shape.

Trump took the stage in Daytona Beach, Florida, on Wednesday with his presidential bid apparently floundering. Republican leaders and even senior members of his own team expressed frustration with his political meltdown on Tuesday.
 
The GOP nominee tried to stem the growing panic -- addressing the state of his campaign right at the top of his speech.
 
"The campaign is doing really well. It's never been so well united. It's the best in terms of being united since we began. We are doing incredibly well," Trump said.
 
"I think we have never been this united," said Trump, who went on to attack the Obama administration over the nuclear deal with Iran and the state of the economy.
 
It was that kind of rigid message discipline that has been lacking over the last four days as Trump has publicly feuded with the Muslim parents of a fallen US soldier and failed to hammer Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
He infuriated many Republicans with comments Tuesday in which he said he isn't endorsing House Speaker Paul Ryan or Arizona Sen. John McCain as they face primary challengers.
 
But even as Trump spoke, intrigue about the state of his campaign deepened.
 
A GOP source told CNN's Dana Bash that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus was especially frustrated because Ryan and Priebus, both from Wisconsin, are very close. The source said Trump refusing to endorse Ryan in his re-election primary was "personal" especially since Priebus has "taken on a lot of water" for Trump. "He takes this very personally," said the source.
 
Priebus "does want to show his support" for Ryan, a source tells CNN.
The chairman has been the main point of contact between Trump and the Republican Party, on which the billionaire has been relying heavily since he lacks the political infrastructure of a conventional political candidate.
 
Priebus, who was said by the source to be incredibly upset with Trump's behavior, had expressed his disappointment and frustration to several leading members of Trump's entourage, the source said.
Trump's vice presidential running mate Mike Pence meanwhile contradicted Trump in an interview with Fox News and revealed that he had urged the billionaire to back Ryan.
 
"I strongly support Paul Ryan, endorse his re-election. He is a long time friend, a strong conservative leader," Pence said on Fox News.
 
The GOP source insisted that there was no real movement yet to prepare for Trump exiting the race -- a step that would be unprecedented in modern politics. But the source also noted that if the billionaire did quit before September 1, it would be theoretically possible for the GOP to come up with a nominee who could get on the ballot in enough states to reach the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
 
The reverberations from Trump's decision to go rogue on his own party ripped through the political world Wednesday morning.
 
Washington was still trying to come to terms with one of the most bizarre days in recent campaign history on which President Barack Obama slammed Trump as unfit for the presidency and the GOP standard-bearer effectively declared war on his own party by refusing to endorse Ryan and Arizona Sen. John McCain, who is facing a tough re-election bid.
 
Former George W. Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer expressed the sense of bewilderment settling over the political world when he reflected on Trump's take-no-prisoners political style.
 
"He is such a good counter puncher that he is knocking himself out," Fleischer said on CNN's "New Day." "If he would focus on Hillary, if he'd focus on the economy, if he'd talk (President Barack) Obama and we don't want a third term, he could win this race. He's hurting himself and hurting the cause."
A knowledgeable Republican source told CNN Tuesday that some of Trump's campaign staff -- even campaign chairman Paul Manafort -- "feel like they are wasting their time," given their boss's recent comments.
 
But Manafort insisted to CNN Wednesaday that isn't true and any frustration centers on the media.
 
"Frankly the frustration we have is with you all," he said during a telephone interview, "because you're not covering our side of the campaign. That's our frustration. We understand you want to focus on some of the issues against us, but the reality is we don't think you've given us equal treatment on the other side."
 
Manafort said the controversy surrounding the military family "shouldn't have been that important in the context of the broader campaign. ...We wanted to keep the focus on (Hillary Clinton's) record and on the Obama administration that she was a part of, and things that she put into play, not us."
 
Manafort was joined in the room on the call with CNN's Dana Bash by nearly all of the campaign's senior staff, including Rick Gates, Hope Hicks and Stephen Miller, as part of an aggressive show of force to push back against suggestions of frustration.
 
Still, two Trump insiders said Priebus has talked to Trump several times in recent days, conveying the dismay among senior party leaders and donors.
 
It has been relayed to Trump that he is losing what tenuous support he has in the party establishment, and that already skeptical donors are heading for the exits or telling the senior team can't count on serious progress when he looks so toxic.
 
"(Manafort) has made clear no one can help him if no one believes he will do what it takes to win," said a senior Trump aide.
 
Trump spokesman Jason Miller rejected suggestions that Manafort is "mailing it in" as "completely erroneous." The campaign "just finished up our strongest month of fundraising to date, we're adding talented and experienced staffers on a daily basis and Mr. Trump's turning out bigger, more enthusiastic crowds than Hillary Clinton ever could."

So Trump's rants are the story rather than his reasons for thinking that he should be president.

Trump is running against himself, and it looks like a loss is increasingly certain.

Maybe the GOP will just to recall him and risk the rage of Trump's supporters, who are quite vocal.

Donald Trump could very well cause a lot of headache for the current crop of career Republican politicians. He certainly has the grass root following that could replace them with pro-Trump candidates. 

Is it really their thoughts that Trump is a fool and want to stay clear of him or is it that they worried he could make demands of them?

The slave that you are can only see whites in terms of those who harbor a deep hatred of dark skin and a whip.  And the slave that you are enjoys being whipped by these bigots, so you worship them.

FACT.  Hillary is getting MORE support from educated whites than Obama did.  Many GOP plan either not to vote, to vote for a 3rd party, or to vote for Hillary.

Trump is 90% likely to LOSE. I will not say 100% as there is always the probability that the insane asylum might be opened, letting out the inmates, while the sane might get complacent and not vote.

Trump has a following of Whites for the years to come. Just like the Clintons, who have Black people on their side for only one reason. Use them as it pleases them.  

White people are smart. I hope they figure a way to increase their numbers. And tek back their country.

Hillary Clinton Is Moving In For The Kill By Dropping The Hammer And Sickle On Trump

The Hillary Clinton campaign sent a strong signal today that they are about to go after Trump for his close ties to Russia.

Transcript via ABC’s This Week:
ROBBY MOOK, CLINTON CAMPAIGN MANAGER:
I would also point out that Paul Manafort has been pushed out, but that doesn’t mean that the Russians have been pushed out of this campaign. The hand of the Kremlin has been at work in this campaign for some time. It’s clear that they are supporting Donald Trump.

But we now need Donald Trump to explain to us the extent to which the hand of the Kremlin is at the core of his own campaign. There’s a web of financial interests that have not been disclosed. And there are real questions being raised about whether Donald Trump himself is just a puppet for the Kremlin in this race?

STEPHANOPOULOS: You’re saying he’s a puppet for the Kremlin?

MOOK: Well, real questions are being raised about that. We — again, there’s a web of financial ties to the Russians that he refuses to disclose. We’ve seen over the last few week, him parroted Vladimir Putin in his own remarks. We saw the Republican Party platform changed. She saw Donald Trump talk about leaving NATO and leaving our Eastern European allies vulnerable to a Russian attack. The gentleman he brought with him to his security briefing just last week is someone who’s on the payroll of the Russia Times, which is a basically a propaganda arm of the Kremlin. He was sitting two seats away from Vladimir Putin at heir 10th Anniversary gala.

There are a lot of questions here. And we need Donald Trump to disclose all of his financial ties and whether his advisers are having meetings with the Kremlin.

One of the many ways to go after Mr. Make America Great Again as too close to one of the country’s biggest adversaries is to highlight is consistent praise of Putin. Even with Manafort gone, Trump continues to insist in his speeches that he will have a good relationship with Russia if he is elected president.

Donald Trump has a fetish for strongman dictator types, but his praise for Putin and the remaining close ties of people on Trump’s staff to the Russian government should be troubling for all voters.

The Clinton campaign hasn’t had to attack Trump because he does such a good job of self-destructing, but as the campaign moves into the fall, it is clear that Hillary Clinton is moving in for the kill as the time is coming for Democrats to work hard to put the Trump campaign out of its misery.
