The end of the line for Donald J. Trump

By Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed.

Fallout, Lust, Ambition & Madness. Oh DJT, you put a cork in it tonight. I've had The Willies about you for the last year or so but tonight, you laid my fears to rest.

Donald J. Trump's reverse bandwagon juggernaut

By Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed.

As a politics geek, it's fascinating watching this shipwreck, especially the accelerating Reverse Bandwagon Juggernaut of friends and foes jumping off as the boat takes on water and lists even further. It's actually hard now to feature just how the debate tomorrow will look.
Mr. Donald J. Trump has nothing to lose. It's coming down to a Captain Queeg moment tomorrow night. Maybe DJT will come out all contrite, and every answer will be like a cocktail of Socrates, Jesus, and Bobby Kennedy; but you know he's going to come in hot. And I think probably half of HRC's debate prep must be based on the five or six targeted crooked Hillary accusations.
It is good fortune for Hillary that the WikiLeaks release of her speeches for corporations occurred just when this whole firestorm went down. They are virtually unnoticed.
So tomorrow we'll see contrition, defiance, or savage counterattacks and scorched earth craziness. Or, something like, I apologized yesterday, now let's move on to Crooked Hillary and these WikiLeaks. Will they pillory him? Will the moderators and/or the audience pile on? For all we know, more Trump tapes will appear tomorrow (his Apprentice 1st and 2nd season producer says there are tapes that make the Access Hollywood tapes look like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm).
I'm not sure an amazing performance tomorrow can make a difference now. Stay tuned, eh?

Donald Trump's last 24 hours

The Gutter King, Donald J. Trump

By Mona Goldwater, Social Mores Ed.

After Donald Trump's hedging [1] apology last night (ending "I pledge to be a better man tomorrow"), he inserted a passage like a song's bridge, where he seemed to evoke RFK spending time with the poor folks, and being transformed. Then he crawled back in the gutter on Bill Clinton, and ended his 90 seconds on a [shockingly] defiant note.

[1] a) that's not me; b) this is a distraction; it's ten years old; d) what about Bill Clinton?

Donald Trump tweetstorm

by Mona Goldwater, Social Mores Ed.

Donald Trump is in the middle of a bizarre tweetstorm. His staff is still asleep apparently. He's bringing up #sextapes?

Florida voters weigh in on Donald J. Trump's debate performance


Donald J. Trump cashed a thirteen cent check

In 1990, Spy magazine performed an interesting experiment to find out "Who is America's cheapest zillionaire?"
Spy sent various people a 13 cent check , and waited to see who would actually cash it. They sent the checks to the home addresses of the rich people. DJT cashed his. So did the Saudi businessman Adnan Khashoggi.

Donald Trump gets taken to Chinatown

by Jack Brummet, Republican Family Values Editor

Of all the things DJT said in the Presidential Debate last night, what most offended me was when he referred to President Obama as “your President” while speaking to Hillary late in the debate. It flared up on FB, Reddit, Twitter, and other sites. Was this tied into his earlier refusal to apologize ("I have nothing to say.") for his five year birther jihad; because he believed [and still believes] the President is illegitimate and therefore not his President? To have not said Our President offended me most, but I imagine everyone has their own choices...God knows he gave the nation so many tonight.
"Not global warming, like you think and your President thinks.” - Donald J. Trump

This debate will go down as a turning point in 2016 and in the annals of great/insane debates. In the spin room, Rudy G said he wasn't sure if Donald would be attending the next two debates. Interestingly, the guy who boasted of his testosterone levels a couple of weeks ago (and by implication, last night)couldn't find the "stamina" to finish the debate.
Trump would be smart to duck out; he has nothing to lose, and would, probably, be cutting his losses. Sure, we'll call him a pussy, but all the razzing and the media barrage would be nothing compared to one more monumental f***up like this. I'm sure his base loves him still, but he lost the outliers tonight, and I'll be really surprised if his head to head national poll numbers don't show a 6% drop by next week.

A sad day for Ann Coulter and her new book "In Trump We Trust"

by Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed.

Donald Trump kind of peed on Ann Coulter's book release party yesterday. On the day her book "In Trump We Trust" came out, DJT announced a radical shift in his immigration "policy."

In the book, she writes "There’s nothing Trump can do that won’t be forgiven. . .except change his immigration policies.”

The pivot that wasn't

By Jack Brummet, GOP-Tea Party Ed.

As many expected, Donald J. Trump's long awaited "Pivot" was wishful thinking on the part of the GOP-Tea Party.  From an interview yesterday:

Donald J.Trump's babysitters

By Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed.

The RNC—and his own team—have begun sending babysitters out with DJT. So far, Giuliani, Christie, and Priebus have pulled road duty.
"We've always found it's wise to have people traveling with him, because it's an opportunity to have him engaged and not just sitting there," Campaign runner Manafort said.

72% of Republicans still believe President Obama is not a citizen

By Jack Brummet

"Seventy-two percent of registered Republican voters still doubt President Obama's citizenship, according to a recent NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll conducted in late June and early July of more than 1,700 registered voters. And this skepticism even exists among Republicans high in political knowledge." - MSNBC
