The one with the best chance is Jeb Bush, but has almost zero chance of getting out of his own party's primary (and that was so predictable).

Not sure if anyone has seen this, but it sums up what others has said about Trump being a troll...


One tweet that shows how expertly Donald Trump is manipulating the media - Vox

It's just so obvious. I don't know if he's really a "plant" by HRC, but he's effectively the same thing with the shit he's been saying.

He is in it for his ego, and to see how far he can get. I don't for a believe for even one second that he truly stands behind what he has said. He's done it to get ratings, get people talking about him. It'll be a best selling book and/or movie when it's all said and done.

Mark Cuban, who is a friend of Trump's, effectively said the same thing last night, that he doesn't believe what he says, he's just pandering for votes and playing to the collective anxiety that exists in portions of the American population.

I'm opting out of being "people."

I've been on the "this is all nonsense in some facet" wagon for a long time. I don't take Trump seriously. He's not doing this because he's racist. He's doing this because he's a very good businessman and he knows how to get results.

But what's his endgame? Is it to punk the right wing base? To help Hillary? Because this can't be good for his business...

What's the upside, though? Seems like he's doing damage to his brand?

Why is it so hard to believe that Trump actually wants to be president? At this point it has gone far beyond brand recognition, Democratic "plant" theories, etc etc.

I think Trump was generally surprised how quickly he shot up in the polls. He's a vehicle for his supporters to vent at the PC culture and their own party. I don't think that his supporters hate Mexicans or Muslims . . . I think they hate Progressives. They love watching them go bonkers, when he says something incendiary. Obama and the Left gave birth to Trump.

The idea has been in his head since the 80s when he walked the floor of the GOP Convention. Advisors to Bush the Elder actually floated his name on a long list of VP possibilities in 1988, before he settled on Quayle. The list had been whittled down by the time it got to 41.

And I think you hate the truth because it's too ugly to face.

*btw, racism or xenophobia doesn't always equal "hate" it doesn't always come in a hood.

Do you really believe that? Don't you think he's proven this already? All press is good press. This is only making Trump's name flat out iconic.

And I never said he wasn't an egomaniac. This could very well just be a fun way for him to "test" how his money would do in an investment like this.

Because he's historically been a Democrat? Because he's had fake runs for president before? Because he golfs with Bill Clinton? Because he's always been an egomaniac attention whore?

As for hurting his brand? Yea, the ego part. But hidden behind the ego and faux celebrity is where the man makes his real money: real estate. And that won't be hurt by any of this. His holdings are worth hundreds of millions, if not billions, in New York City alone.

And not for nothing, the Clinton's have always been kind to developers. Too kind, actually... as very few ever give Bill the credit he deserves for the housing bubble and the collapse of the economy. A Clinton in the white house is good for Trump's real business, even if his fake business is more or less destroyed.

So do I still think he's a Clinton plant? Yea, I do. Remember how he always went after Obama last time through with the birth certificate and all but he laid off Hillary? Yea.

And it's working like a charm. The republican party is in absolute chaos, the racism and xenophobia of the less moderate in the party has come bubbling to the surface, and the more moderate candidates, who may actually have a fighters chance against Hilldog, are all floundering because Trump has completely hijacked the message.

If he's not a plant, he should be; cause he's doing a hell of a job of destroying the GOP.


And what are we talking about? Are we talking about Bengazhi? Our failed policies in Iraq and Syria? The economy? Jobs? E-mails?

No. Everyone's talking about this floppy haired cunt.

Mission accomplished.
