  • The really low Democratic turnout is VERY worrisome. In regards to the astounding victory of Hillary in SC…I think it has to do with AA women. They were more enthused about a woman becoming President than an AA male. And from my anecdotal experience that doesn’t surprise me.

    (I typed this up before you made the same points but I hate to waste it) There are two reasons why Trump is winning and appealing to so many on the right and middle and they are probably one of the ugliest things about our national character. I’ve said this before, his assholishness is a feature, not a bug.

    1. He appeals to their Id–he feeds that deep, deep desire to say what is on their minds but they’re too scared to say out loud because of social disapproval. Why is the asshole character on Reality Shows (and before that on Soap Operas) always the most popular character? For this very reason–that character can get away with what most people want to. They are enjoying the thrill of his bad behavior vicariously.

    2. American worship wealth, power and celebrities. He’s who many Americans want to be. They want to be so powerful they can say anything they want, so untouchable they can go bankrupt and never be affected by it, so desirable that models will marry them even though they’re ugly and stupid as fuck, etc, etc. It’s not a new thing either. Historians have posited that it is why many small southern farmers went to fight for the Confederacy–they wanted to be a plantation owner some day.

    On the far left, he appeals to some of the Bernie nihilists who want to see the country burn so their leftist revolution will arrive sooner rather than later. These asshats are more than willing to let women, children and minorities be the martyrs to their cause. And it should be no surprise to anyone that the majority of these people are white males–the one group most insulated from the affects of a Trump presidency. UNLESS there is a draft. When these asshats have to leave the country to avoid the draft for some stupid and ill-conceived war that Trump starts because someone somewhere insulted his manhood, I will be the first to tell them, “I told you so” and then I’ll work my ass off to end the war and the draft. Not that they deserve my help, but it isn’t about my ego or their ego, it’s about people’s lives–the exact point they don’t get and/or don’t care.

    I’m really enjoying Samantha B as well and thank goodness we have her to call the left out on our own BS

    I’m blown away that a General would say he would disobey a Presidential order…that’s amazing!!!

    It’s not entirely true that everyone hates Cruz. I know plenty of conservative Christians in AZ who think Cruz is the best thing since sliced bread. But consider the source.

  • OldLefty

    What if a “President Trump” (shudder) got into an insult exchange with Kim Jong-Un?

  • MrDHalen

    To throw in a well known Star Wars line “I got a bad feeling about this” election or maybe the next. If Clinton goes on to take the nomination, she has to maybe in her VP pick, address the populist anti-establishment movement growing in this country. If the Democrats do not move in to retake this issue, we could be out-flanked by, if not Trump this time, a new (and better) anti-establishment Republican in 2020. Of the top four presidential candidates running and winning states, three of them are running on anti-establishment platforms. Think about that for a second.

    I think a lot of Democrats are underestimating a general election Trump against Clinton. If he gets the right advisers around him and they refine his message and are able to turn Clinton’s establishment credentials against her in a year when the anti-establishment feelings are high, watch out! People are sick of bought politicians. It has to be addressed, but it feels like a this is a blind spot for a large part of the Democratic party this year.

    • muselet

      Agreed. Sane human beings must start taking Donald Trump seriously as a general-election candidate. Yes, he’s an orange buffoon with a mangy tribble on his head and stubby fingers, but he’s tapped into something dark and powerful in the country.


      • MrDHalen

        We also have to be careful of misunderstanding where Trump’s appeal is coming from. Some of it is the “racial” aspect of some of his proposals, but I believe the bulk of it is economic. This is why he is leading without embracing all the conservative social issues. The Republican base has started to shift its focus to economic issues for working people. Something shared by many Democrats, but Republicans lean on it being the fault of immigrants and “others” coming into the country. Trump could pivot and redirect many of them to Wall Street and American big business outsourcing. He has already shown hints of this and that is where we could be hurt in the current populist climate.

        I don’t see a lot of Democratic elite or pundits expressing concern for this possible scenario and it’s making me really nervous. While we have been enjoying watching the GOP establishment misread their own base, the Democratic party could be on the verge of misreading what this election is really going to be about.

        • muselet

          True. I’m hoping the Ds are seeing what you are seeing, and are keeping their powder dry for the general election campaign.


  • katanahamon

    Rubio and the other candidates have resorted to the same tactics Trump is using because they lack the oratory skill and facts, and ideology to inspire anyone in their right mind (pun not intended) to vote for them. How can they not? They lack the tools in their skill set in the first place to remotely qualify for the office of President, then they see Trump succeeding using horrific tactics, language, all with no knowledge whatsoever, so of course they are going to imitate him. Multiply this by the fact that the media refuses to call any of them out for their bald faced lies and the level of intelligence, discourse and content will continue to degrade. And you’re’s not funny anymore. In the last few days I’ve seen articles comparing Hillary and Trump and basically equating them in the political arena, which elevates Trump in a field in which he has no qualifications…this, this IS the media’s purview and responsibility, and they are failing..

    As far as Bernie is concerned, of course he will stay in it as long as he can. He cares nothing for the Democratic Party, so he isn’t going to care enough to “do the right thing” for either the party or the country. His outlook will be just as unrealistic as his ability to carry out what he is proposing.

    Trump..what can be said? I just can’t believe this is happening. I do think it’s a matter of time until a severe injury or fatality happens at one of his rallies. One can only hope that it would be Drumpf, but more likely it will be a protestor that has sneaked in.

  • Badgerite

    Actually, I think Trump, for the GOP voter, is that ‘kitchen sink’. They tried everything else. So why not.
    Facts don’t matter. They are desperate.

  • Badgerite

    His earpiece? That is his non-disavowal disavowal. Trump is doing the wink, wink, nudge, nudge thing.
    It is not ‘brilliant’. It is ‘authentic’. He is an authenticly dishonest _________. He doesn’t know who the KKK are?

  • ProudLiberalAlways

    Great show again, fellas. It’s good to be able to go to bed after laughing at this horror show today! Thanx ever so.

  • muselet

    The prospect of a President Donald John Trump makes my blood run cold.

    John Oliver’s takedown of Trump was brilliant. I am a bit surprised that Trump and his minions didn’t spend the past forty-whatever hours blasting Oliver nonstop on Twitter.

    This is Hillary Clinton’s fourth campaign in South Carolina. She knows the state, the state’s Democratic voters know her, she was always going to win big; it is a bit surprising that she’s polled better than Barack Obama with black voters, but again, she’s campaigned in what Charlie Pierce routinely calls “the home office of American sedition” a lot.

    Bob, Barack Obama isn’t sui generis, but it’s not as if there was a long line of youngish, liberalish candidates forming to run this year.

    Steve Benen repeated a point several others have made, that the GOP wanted desperately to avoid what happened in 2012, and so changed the process to make an early favorite pretty much a lock on the nomination. It hasn’t gone well for the party because the early frontrunner is Trump.

    I’m not entirely sure The Base would put up with superdelegates, especially not this cycle.

    Bob, of course the discourse on the R side has deteriorated to a level that would be embarrassing on a fifth-grade playground. It had to happen, given Trump’s personality. He’s given the rhetorical equivalent of noogies and swirlies to all the other R candidates, so now they’re after revenge, only they have no idea how to get revenge against their tormentor. At the risk of sounding like Trump, they’re pathetic.

    At this point, the bar is so low, you’d need a backhoe to go lower. I am in no doubt Trump will manage somehow, but I hope I never find out how.

    Bob, the Rs have always presented themselves as The Party Of Family Values And Morality™, but they’ve also always been the ones obsessed with others’ genitals (for example, women; for another example, Bill Clinton). For Marco Rubio to get into a rather silly dick-swinging contest with Donald Trump is a difference of degree, not of kind.

    Once more, with feeling: Republican leaders, “you built that.”

    Chez, the people who do care that Trump lies don’t matter because they’re not Republicans. The Republican Base either doesn’t know or doesn’t care about the lies, because what Trump says tickles the pleasure centers of their brains. Trump is the Republican id made flesh.

    Bob, part of me wants you to be right about Trump and an AR-15, although most of me is worried his cocktail-sausage fingers would slip and pull the trigger, and he’d accidentally shoot up the audience.

    “David Duke, why isn’t he dead yet?” Bob, nothing truly evil dies.

    Trump is determined to brazen out any attack on his character or the character of anyone—even white supremacists—who endorses him. It’s infuriating, but it’s how he’s going to behave through November. His supporters will become even more enthusiastic because their guy stuck it to theliberalmedia. That’s why it’s a really bad idea to fixate on the terrible people who are endorsing the short-fingered vulgarian.

    Instead, everyone should be directing their fire at Trump’s carefully-constructed image: a fabulously wealthy, unimaginably successful real estate developer and entrepreneur with the Midal touch. He’s none of those things. Not only might this cause the scales to fall from the eyes of those who support him, but it absolutely will enrage him, and an out-of-control Donald Trump is a beatable Donald Trump.

    Chez, with all due respect, none of this was ever fcking funny.

    Jesse Ventura has a brain the size of a carbuncle.

    Yes, Trump will be the Republican nominee, a man who has earned the following footnote at Huffington Post (links omitted):

    Editor’s note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.


    • I don’t think the Trump camp wants to draw attention to Oliver’s takedown because moderates who support Trump might be persuadable.

      I really should read your comments before I post mine–we end up repeating one another. 😉

  • Aynwrong

    Along with Trump receiving David Duke’s endorsement Mediaite today reported that Lewis Farrakhan is now praising Donald Trump.

    “[Trump] is the only member who has stood in front of the Jewish community and said, ‘I don’t want your money,”

    This seems entirely, perversely appropriate.

    Uh, no guys. Samantha Bee is perfect where she is on TBS doing a weekly half hour show. She’d get burned out quickly having to do four shows a week. Learn to live with Trevor Noah as the Daily Show host as he is quite fine in the roll.
