Vetting Herr Trump!! should be easy! (HRC GP)

The complete guide to how Trump can make himself the first American dictator
http://qz.com/630672/here-is-the-playbook-for-how-trump-can-make-himself-the-first-american-dictator/

"If Trump is elected president, will constitutional law and American political institutions protect us from a would-be dictator? Europeans worry about the emergence of Caesarism in the United States, just as the founders did when they invented the presidency. Authoritarianism is making gains around the world; why not here? Of course, Trump may not want to be a dictator. He has repeatedly stated his desire to make “deals,” implying a willingness to cooperate with Congress. But there is no reason to believe anything he says; many of his actions and statements are those of someone with a dictatorial mentality if nothing else, and his popular support derives from his authoritarian image: he appeals to people who yearn for a strongman to protect them. So the question is worth asking. What is the answer?..... more...."



21 Questions For Donald Trump by David Cay Johnston
http://www.nationalmemo.com/21-questions-for-donald-trump/

"I have covered Donald Trump off and on for 27 years — including breaking the story that in 1990, when he claimed to be worth $3 billion but could not pay interest on loans coming due, his bankers put his net worth at minus $295 million. And so I have closely watched what Trump does and what government documents reveal about his conduct.
Reporters, competing Republican candidates, and voters would learn a lot about Trump if they asked for complete answers to these 21 questions. more...

10. A federal judge later found you conspired to cheat both the Polish workers, who were paid less than $5 an hour cash with no benefits, and the union health and welfare fund. You testified that you did not notice the Polish workers, whom the judge noted were easy to spot because they were the only ones on the work site without hard hats."



7 Takeaways from Vanity Fair’s 1990 Profile of Donald Trump
http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2015/08/donald-trump-marie-brenner-ivana-div

"Twenty-five years ago, this magazine’s Marie Brenner spent some time with Trump for an investigation into the dissolution of his marriage to Ivana Trump. In retrospect, the story has all the trappings of a perfect Trump piece: discord between reality and Trump’s claims about it, accusations of disloyalty, and triumphant highs amid a string of batted-away lows. Here are seven takeaways that still matter.

1. Trump’s views on women are repugnant. Here’s how Donald explained the tabloid fascination with Ivana: “When a man leaves a woman, especially when it was perceived that he has left for a piece of ass—a good one!—there are 50 percent of the population who will love the woman who was left.”

1. I can also remember how he 'paid' Ivana (re: views on women)

She worked so hard in the casinos and, in my opinion, was part of the reason he was able to claim "class." An interviewer asked Trump about the business arrangement with Ivana and Trump indicated that he paid her in "dresses"--she could have all the dresses she wanted. He seemed incensed that the interviewer was interested in talking about Ivana's constant business presence at all.
He was pure misogynist slime.

2. I think we can say we are past thinking that he respects women!

 

It is close to a fact, ain't it?

“You brag abt many affairs w/ married women,” the senator tweeted on Jan. 24, addressing Trump. “Have you repented? To harmed children & spouses? Do you think it matters?”
In The Art of the Deal, Trump boasted about bedding other men’s wives.
“If I told the real stories of my experiences with women, often seemingly very happily married and important women, this book would be a guaranteed best-seller,” he wrote.

I am no christian or religious but the thought of a man bragging that he gets other men wives is kinda icky in my book.

5. Ughhh! He's a pig!

The thought that he could be POTUS (republicans sometimes steal elections) makes my skin crawl!

4. I don't think Trump is going to be their nominee.

I think it will be Cruz. I think the GOP will be successful in bringing down Trump even if it means getting behind Cruz,who they may hate but believe won't destroy the party like Trump will. Of course if Trump feels the nomination was stolen from him(and I doubt his ego will let him believe anything less) I see him running 3rd party,which would be delicious.

6. It will be easy but will his supporters care?

If Trump is the short fingered vulgarian does that make Cruz Voldermort?

7. I think they do

 

Look what happened yesterday! There were mailed in ballots that showed he was on his way to win (BIG) some States but after all the ugliness that has come out in the last days he actually went on to lose a couple states and his wins were very close to Cruz so barely won. So there was a difference b/w people who mailed in and voted early and those that actually showed up yesterday to vote.

8. Nate Silver on Louisiana

 

NATE SILVER 10:28 PM
To take one example of the huge split between election day returns and early votes in Louisiana: in Acadia Parish, Trump got 47 percent of the early vote, with 26 percent for Cruz and 19 percent for Rubio. In election day returns, however, it’s Trump 44, Cruz 41, Rubio 9. Trump often performs worse with late-deciding voters, but we haven’t seen anything this dramatic yet.http://fivethirtyeight.com/live-blog/louisiana-kansas-kentucky-maine-primaries-presidential-election-2016/
