    All you really need to know about the GOP’s new Orange Overlord is that a reputable polling company compared Trump’s Favorable/Unfavorable numbers against Used Car Salesmen, The DMV, Traffic Jams, Nickleback, Root Canal & Lice.

    Don’t know if you guys have recorded the Thursday (today) show, but, do you think Paul Ryan is scripting his opposition and eventual support of Trump to convince other Repubs to fall in line? It’s starting to smell very, very fishy…

    “Save the fetuses, ostracize gays, ruin the environment, and cut taxes and that’s all they care about. They don’t care if it comes in the package of this buffoon that has all the best words.”

    Bob, that cuts to the heart of it all. As long as their agenda is achieved the collateral damage, in their minds, is a reasonable price to pay regardless of what the damage turns out to be. I’ll be waiting to see if those big name Republicans that have claimed they won’t vote for Drumpf fall in line or hold to their convictions (*looks at Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker*).

    “I know words. I have the best words.” Yep, the best words like “divorce” and “bankruptcy” and “inheritance” and “television.” Oh. Good. Lord.

    Of course Donald Trump isn’t presidential, Bob. Free-floating resentment can never be presidential, and that’s the whole point of his campaign. He doesn’t have time for the niceties: he has to Make America Great Again!, he’s identified the enemy of the day (or hour) and there’s no time to lose. He tells his supporters exactly what they want to hear, every single time. He’s a boor and his supporters love him for that.

    Bob, I agree with your entire argument. The problem is that your Salon piece sounds, to Trump supporters, the way we sane people hear rants from AM talk-radio blatherers.

    I want a President who is smarter and more articulate than I am. I also want a President who challenges me, forces me to think, makes me examine my assumptions. In short, I want a President who—oh dear, now I’m going to sound like one of them damn’ pointy-headed elitists—reminds me of my favorite university professors. Donald Trump reminds me of one of the meatheads I went out of my way to avoid in middle school.

    Rush Limbaugh moaning about internet trolls demonstrates the man’s utter lack of self-awareness (does Limbaugh, I wonder, recognize himself in a mirror?).

    Chez, following up on your idea, we should abandon elections and install in office the candidate who gets the most “Like”s.

    “Brand-licenser Donald Trump.” That’s perfect.

    The short-fingered vulgarian is more popular than cockroaches? I demand a recount.

    “Don’t get happy!” Good advice, always.

    If we lived in the good universe, the short-fingered vulgarian would lose 50 states and DC by 70 points. Alas, we don’t live in the good universe.

    “Is there a single Republican with a brain in their skulls?” Yes, there are quite a few. However, their brains are routinely overruled by their limbic systems.

    Kevin Drum pretty much dismantled the Righty “we’re victims of those big meanies at Facebook” narrative—and John Thune’s investigation—today. Plus, asDoctor Science points out, a lot of what got eliminated from Facebook’s “Trending Topics” feed wasn’t actually news.

    Donald “Stubby” Trump has a ring to it, especially given his (purported) ties to the mob.

  • Facebook should have responded to Congress that “No, we won’t be sending you a response because in the Free Market that you supposedly support this corporation does nothing different than many other corporations to include Fox News, etc, etc. And when those corporations are required to respond to a Congressional inquiry then this corporation will as well.”

  • Have you noticed that Paul Ryan is pivoting? So ironic that the GOP accuses liberals of destroying the country when they’re one nominating F-ck Face Von Clownstick to be President.

  • That does it, now I have to watch Better Call Saul.

    I know some very conservative people here in AZ who refuse to vote for either Hillary or Trump. We need to use the nastiness that the press and Trump are going to emphasize to motivate liberals and moderates to vote for Hillary.

    Bob, we need to repeat your argument over and over and over. If we want a President who thinks and speaks like us, then any average American can be President. Are Americans so arrogant as to think they any average American is so fucking awesome that they can be President? Pride goeth before the fall has never rang so true.

    We need to fucking mobilize Dems and moderate Independents. We need to use the nastiness not to discourage voters but to motivate them to prevent this douche from winning the WH.

    I don’t understand, however, how Trump can only be slightly more liked than cockroaches but still be running so close to Hillary.

  • katanahamon

    I made this comment somewhere else, but thought it was worth posting again..
    Trump is proud of the fact that he is “so rich” that he isn’t beholden to anyone, that he “can’t be bought”. The problem with a person that feels they are not beholden to anyone or anything, and has lived their entire life that way, is that they have lived an entirely unrealistic fantasy life, and I believe it encourages mental illness in that individual. Being President means you are more beholden than ever, to the people. All the people. Trump would never feel beholden to the people, therefor is fundamentally unsuited for the position.

  • katanahamon

    What is wrong with the huffington post? There must be at least five pro Bernie stories there today, one saying that “he can still win”. It’s thinking like this on the Dem side that is equally stupid and dysfunctional.

    • Scopedog

      Delusion is a hell of a drug.

      Look, Sanders fought the good fight–but he’s still too far behind in delegates and votes to catch up. Hillary was in a much better position back in 2008. It’s just people refusing to accept what is actually happening, which is that their candidate will lose.

  • katanahamon

    Perhaps the most important unasked question so far is, are Trump’s hands smaller than Hillary’s?

  • katanahamon

    You started to sound so discouraged, at your 34′ break I thought you were going to continue after “alright, we’re going to take a break and…(take some Thorazine, have a barbiturita, slit our wrists….)..

    It’s depressing about the poll, but look, we all know that in modern politics, it’s “us vs them”, Repubs vs Dems, and for many if not most, it matters not at all who the candidates are.

    The thing that bothers me more about Facebook is that many publications (not this one, thank god!) only accept comments if you are a member of Facebook.

    Was surprised that you guys didn’t mention how Bernie is still in this thing mucking around inciting dolts like Susan Sarandon. Save that for Thursday.. Be well, warriors of truth and justice..have a post cinco de mayo margarita and bolster yourselves..looks like a long haul to November!

    • Badgerite

      At least the Sanders people have backed off of the nasty attacks on Clinton. Sort of.
      That was always going to back fire on them. Now they only pray for her to die of an illness.
      It is kind of bizarre that they didn’t know that.

      • Victor the Crab

        Fuck ’em! They still won’t believe their guy is finished and will insist that he still has a great chance to win the nomination. And if he doesn’t get the nod, they’ll try to destroy Hillary’s chances at the presidency by any means necessary, such as voting for Drumph. These are selfish nihilistic bungholes that spend too much time on their social media outlets taking selfies to understand what’s at stake for the country and the world.

        • Badgerite

          Well, that’s too bad because as far as I’m concerned they are on the same side. You know, their voting records in the Senate are pretty close to identical. If I thought Sanders would be the better nominee and president I would support him. But I don’t. I think he promises far more than he could ever deliver and especially so without a Democratic majority in both Houses of Congress. You need a strong Democratic party vote to secure that and even with a 50 state strategy, some of those representatives will be from more conservative areas of the country and their votes in Congress are likely to reflect that. And when it comes to foreign policy, I don’t think Sanders proposes the kind of push back against people like Putin that is necessary in the world. The left, of course, loves that. But out NATO allies dealing with Russian covert actions in their countries probably would not.
          I don’t even know what a Sanders foreign policy would look like. But to keep the left happy he would pretty much have to bring everyone home from everywhere and build a “big, beautiful” wall and hope that does it.
          Which I am very sure it would not.

  • Badgerite

    Internet troll? Radio troll? What’s the difference? What is Limboo complaining about. Exactly,

  • Badgerite

    W hold these things to be self evident. Donald Trump is a man-baby.

  • Badgerite

    Jon Stewart has it right. F-ck Face Von Clownstick (Stewart’s pet name for the Trump Monster) is unfit to be president. He knows words? Well, so does a three year old. Man-baby.

  • josephebacon

    My fear–Trump thinks being President is like Monty Hall hosting Let’s Make A Deal. I’m scared to death about trading my girlfriend for what’s behind Door #2!

  • HilaryB

    That’s going to be my go-to answer the next time I have a job interview.
