This x1000000.

I don't feel this Trump thing all that new as his "larger than life" personality has been a thing for long time and we're used to seeing Donald saying insane garbage.

This. He's always been an obnoxious loudmouth, so that's not surprising to me.

What is surprising to me is that people didn't see his campaign for the joke it clearly was supposed to be when he first ran and are actually keeping the damn thing going, and actually seeing him as someone who should legitimately be our next president. I just do not get that line of thinking. At all.

I mean, I get the whole "outside the mainstream" fervor that a lot of people are having nowadays...but this is not the kind of "outside the mainstream" thing we should be going for.

Also, I'm from the U.S. and I wholeheartedly agree that the "RAH RAH AMERICA IS #1!" rhetoric is ridiculously over the top. I love my country and I'm proud of all the good things we have done, or are doing, but there's ways to express that pride and support without being obnoxious about it. And the arrogance that we have all the answers to everything, and don't need to listen to or learn from our allies, is absurd, too.

I kinda hate the fact that Donald talking in public and Donald on twitter are virtually same person.

Pretty much everyone hates that Donald Trump is talking in public, period. Except his supporters, and they're only listening to the dog whistles.

Popping in here from lurking. Did anyone read this article by Matt Taibbi posted yesterday in Rolling Stone? It's a very astute analysis of the entire political field and what's happening with Trump. I found it both hilarious and frightening because of the conclusion. Sorry if it was posted here already, I didn't see it. https://www.rollingstone.com/politic...pable-20160224

This is the only Republican debate that I have watched from the beginning. Is this a debate or a roast?

The best part was when Rubio exclaimed that not only are there two Hispanics on stage but ALSO an African American, thereby making the Republicans the party of diversity.

Maybe he hasn't noticed that black dude in the White House?

I mean, I don't think that comment is wildly off-base. Were the Dems as diverse as this when they had this many candidates..?

Ben Carson is like a child. "The fruit salad of their life," my god.

I could deal with a Kasich presidency. Can only judge him on what I've seen, and he's the only one who isn't insane. Maybe he'll be the VP?

Trump's whole thing is "everyone is my friend".
