A Bernie split would fracture the Dem vote across the country. Only the bluest of blue states would stay that way.

"Self-absorbed opportunist."

Likely......but rare among politicians, right?

A third party Bernie run would hurt Hillary, but she's clobbered him in overall votes and she's beaten him soundly in most of the swing states. My guess is he'd hurt, but such is polarization that he probably wouldn't actually flip a state to the GOP column.

I also think a lot of people have voted Bernienin the primaries fully expecting to vote for her in the general. If he were to do something to actively help Trump, it wouldn't go down well.

Everyone needs to keep repeating there 4 words: three Supreme Court justices.

Any third party ticket at this point would be suicide. But would there be someone willing to sacrifice themselves to save their party from becoming the biggest joke on the world stage?

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh my bad. I guess that and the taco bowl just negates everything. He can't be racist. There are two of the blacks and an oriental at his rally! Maybe even a gay or two. He's a uniter after all!

The preferred nomenclature is Asian

You're welcome to defend Trump, but to suggest he's not racist because people of different races attend his rallies... really?

Let's pretend like there also wasn't the odd apple African American who supported segregation. Or let's pretend like there isn't the one off gay person who doesn't believe in gay marriage.

This is your tacobowl moment. A low point for you.

Folks, forget repeating propaganda developed by neo nazis, forget saying there's only a few good Mexicans, oh yeah and he's a fucking birther... He eats Americanized Mexican food and they found two black women in his audience.


There is no racism here, pure hyperbole.

'Cause it's not like politicians don't shamelessly pander, right? It's not like Trump tries to appeal to whomever he happens to be in front of right at that moment, right?

Just like Hillary Clinton's Mariachi Band yesterday, right?

I'm just encouraged that Mrs. Clinton keeps hot sauce in her purse.

The condiment might be needed on a weak taco bowl.

I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that there are sections of minorities who are fairly reactionary/conservative to the point that they'd be happy to support Trump. It does not clear Trump himself of any racism by any stretch.
