No matter what happens from here on out, having someone like Trump get as far as he has in this election is a very ugly stain on America. It's unforgiveable for people to back him. And when people say "yeah, both choices are awful" that's about as true as saying "tomorrow i'll either have to cut my toe nails or get gonorrhea. I dont feel like either". One is immeasurably worse than the other.

Today he's started claims that the election is going to be rigged. Pre-empting his loss and the chaos he'll follow it up with.

It's predictable as all hell.

Yea. Cutting toe nails is the worst. Can never get them just right.

Yep, start it now. The sad thing is there's already a narrative for it.

Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against Bernie!!!!!

So now it'll happen against Trump. Get his fan base up in a riot now....and try to get some of the Occupy/BernieBro people to his side

I just want to see his taxes. Buffet came out today and said he's under audit too and would gladly release his

It's also genuinely disturbing. People who believe in the democratic process and respect the will of the electorate do not do this. Ever. I maintain that those who describe Trump as a fascist are misusing the term, but he sure has an authoritarian or dictatorial streak and these sorts of pronouncements demonstrate it.

Yep. I really don't get the hugely negative narrative about Clinton either. No, I'm not on board with her hawkish foreign policy. If the US had a viable and genuinely left-wing, social democratic option, I would support it in a heartbeat (I don't think Sanders was it - his left-wing credentials were overstated - and the paltry excuse for a Green Party in the US sure as shit isn't it either). But as it stands, the US has a choice between a woman who possesses strong qualifications and obvious competence for the job, and a man with no apparent qualifications who reacts like a schoolyard bully to any form of disagreement with him, cannot articulate policies, and shows almost no interest in anything beyond his own ego. To say this is an attempt to choose the lesser of two evils is farcical. This is a choice between a woman who can do the job and a man who not only cannot, but will actively destroy the US and negatively affect the globe.

Anybody who thinks Trump will make America great again has neither considered his temperament nor the implications of literally anything he has proposed to do. He will make America a global laughingstock, or - for its patriots, even worse - a global irrelevancy. Trump will turn the US into a has-been.

Yeah, really!
I couldn't quite believe it when he started to insult Mr Khan. And my jaw continues to drop on this ongoing slamming by Trump.

He could start a semi-riot with an ignorant, insulting remark. Gah!

I couldn't watch John Stewart's show because no cable. Just caught glimpses of it through snippets shown elsewhere.

He had a segment called something like "Have We Hit Bottom Yet?!" omg

At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped out of the race before the elections, while claiming that it's all rigged.

Fuck, are you shopping for a new wife already?

If he wins, I bet $100 he'll be divorced and remarried to a newer model within a year.

Imagine... a presidential wedding. Unprecedented, I believe!
