Oh hey, the one Trump supporter I know lives in Leesburg. It's my 97-year-old grandpa.

Love you, grandpa. Bless his heart.

For what it's worth, I am someone who will most likely end up voting for Clinton, at the end of the day. But it's just abhorrent to write this off as some Alex Jones-level conspiracy just because it would fit your narrative.

All of these are a year old, how come the story hasn't developed over this past year?

And before you call me abhorrent and assign a narrative you should probably figure out if I'm even. Hillary fan or not.

I just don't like when people come in with "there are no facts but some are whispering". But good try

You equated people pedaling this conspiracy theory with Alex Jones. I'm going to just grant you the benefit of the doubt here and presume you fully understand the reason I referenced Snowden.

EDIT: Actually, I'll explain now so I can avoid having to do so after your next reply. Do you think that Snowden is a conservative conspiracist? Do you think Snowden is anything other than a fairly bleeding heart liberal? Snowden chose Glenn Greenwald to drop his story with because he liked his politics.

Do you think *GLENN GREENWALD* is anything other than a bleeding heart liberal?

Sigh. Condescension doesn't work particularly well when it's clear that you're simply moving the goal posts while offering no substantive rebuttals.

Again, your initial point was to imply that anyone pushing the "Clinton's foundation is corrupt" idea was a right wing conspiracist. I'm not going to waste any more time further proving that to be false.

But, since you've decided to move the goal posts, let's turn our gaze toward the very recent (January 2016) revelation that the FBI is now investigating the Clinton Foundation for signs of corruption

Additionally, I clearly did not call you abhorrent. I called the logic being used to file this claim into the "conspiracy" bin abhorrent. I called this logic abhorrent because this logic is, indeed, abhorrent.

I think you're reading FAR too much into my reference to Alex Jones. My only point was don't come in here saying "people are talking" "there are no facts yet" etc. The comment had nothing to do with right wing conspiracy theorists or bleeding heart liberals. No one's moving goal posts. Calm down and breathe a little.

You keep referencing people coming in here saying "people are talking" and "there are no facts yet" while conveniently ignoring every citation of facts that I've put forth. I find this irony fun.

Again, as someone likely voting Clinton, I have little to no reason to be worked up about this.

I'm in no way trying to railroad you about this, and I'm quite sorry if it has come across that way. I just think Clinton gets a lot more rope than almost any candidate (sans Trump, obviously), and this seemed like a good opportunity to point this out.

Fair enough. I think you misinterpreted my original stance on this, but I get your point.

this could and I write could end up like 2008

that by the time we get to the election Hillary is such a disaster, like Bush and the GOP were in 2008,
that any GOP candidate can beat her.

Cruz made a huge strategic error by blaming the tone Trump's rallies as the cause of yesterday's fracas. (I know many in here would agree with him). It's not going to help Cruz at all.

For being right? Look, Trump being a cunt is not an excuse for violence. But it doesn't help, either.

There WILL be violence at one of his rallies the likes of which we haven't seen in this country since the 60s. It's not a question of if. It's a question of when. His divisive, xenophobic rhetoric is fanning the flames on both sides, and somebody is going to do something stupid. It's already happening. It will continue, and it will get worse.

The Nazi references are disappointing.

About Trump? Why? They're not references to him just being evil. His rhetoric is very similar to that of Adolph Hitler in the 1920s. It's a very fair comparison. That doesn't mean he's going to be committing genocide and be like WW2/Holocaust Hitler.
