Thinking back to pre

2016 Election Cycles and the Decorum of all the Candidates. First thing comes to mind,never was there a Candidate who continuously yelled at his Audience or at the Camera's and Microphones,like this POS fake President. Been around for eighty years,yes there were the occasional rants here and there,but,never to the extent of this POS.

This Slug knows only how to Gish Gallop as if he was selling more of his Steaks or Ties. The Guy is void of any ideals what so ever,just a Carnival Barker on Roids.

that any history recorded before Trump should only be in black and white?

The whole country is exhausted because a 24-hour news cycle has what used to be 3 days of stories.

going to be one yell-a-thon after another. The average person does not understand the what where and how of a Gish Gallop. As our debate Coach would say,if you don't know how to respond,just snow them under with bullshit. And don't forget to smile while you are doing it.

It's basically ineffective during a televised live debate. A nice 30-second delay would be terrific.

That only works during a one-sided rally or a political ad where your BS would go unopposed and a large flock of believers would infest the venue.

The next debate may just be Trump chasing Biden around the stage trying to land coughs instead of punches. We'll need a ramp to slow him down.

comments at the Phoenix Airport. Holy shit,this sucker is coming apart big time. His facial expression as well as his body language was pure hatred.

Well,will the Press respond,"NO". Cowards one and all.

2016 was a second-place victory, courtesy of the Electoral Pre-School.

His multiple bankruptcies were only to play the system. His true wealth is hidden in money laundering, so he can't reveal his assets.

This loss is taking a toll on him physically, emotionally, and in his already fragile mental health. Everyone he's ever called a loser will go nuclear on him starting November 4th.

Next year at this time, he'll be in some form of an institution. He's Howard Beale and Lonesome Rhodes in one body.

Revivalist and Scam Artist of years gone by. PT Barnum tried to appear honest,but,this Guy,he can't even fake that.

Orange Anus will BK his Campaign by the middle of November. He will do a BK by February with a revised file day of the first part of November on his Real Estate holdings.

blurb popped from one of the Trump Book Ghost Writers about how Barnum as well as a Nazi Guy were Trump's idol's.

Amazing how this POS has created his own Cult.

He went around telling losers that their loserdom was a result of having people of color in the United States. (Reagan gets an assist for complaining how many minorities are on public assistance, while taking their jobs away. White folks haven't figured out that they probably wouldn't want the jobs that would still qualify them for welfare.) When we got President Obama, Trump's followers were enraged that the "Land of Opportunity" had passed them up. Their minimum wages were stagnant, the house didn't have white walls, and their mac 'n cheese wasn't served with champagne.

The hate has always been there in America. He just had to harness it to allow enough dregs to put "The Donald's" name into history books for all the world to see--good or bad. It all started with a simple birth certificate.

Trump is one idiot who knows what he's doing. It's all bluster without the brains. Stephen Miller, Paul Manafort, and Steve Bannon were the brain trust for the ultimate empty suit.

Grew up in Northern Wisconsin. Like you mention,use a racial ploy and it works. Watched and heard local Political types hammer our Native neighboring Community for every stupid cause known to man kind.

Always amazed how our European Ethnic Neighbors bought into the lies. And in the mean time,those same Political Persons were stealing these same Neighbors blind by working the System to enhance their Wealth or Land Holdings.

The hateful statement,they don't look like us,or,they ain't one of us,carries the day.

When I was forced to work crappy jobs, I would see the divisions. After I began preaching "we're all in this together", management saw me as being dangerous. Once I went full Yossarian on them, creating anonymous mischief, writing outrageous memos (having Black Friday on Bring your child to work day, etc.), and finding ways to embarrass them, I was sent packing.

Those memos were legendary. Maybe because I share my legal name with one of the Merry Pranksters from Ken Kesey's bus. I should find my copy of the Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test for some leisure reading.

Same here on the divide and Conquer thing at work. As a Shop Stew and later a board member,at least once a week,had to hassle management. Hey,would not have it any other way.
