I'm listening to tRump's speech this morning. AMA.

He looks very subdued. He's using a teleprompter. He's spouting about how great his business but in a much more low key way than at his rallies. Says only he can save us. Not Hillary. It's clear he's going for the whole bashing establishment pols and I'm the outsider. Everything is rigged by Hillary and her cohorts.

Begging for Bernie voters. fuck you asswipe.

"Yesterday, she even tried to attack me"

Here's the truth, I started out not so long ago with a small loan and built a business worth 10 billion. That's what I'll do for America.

As Mark Shields said a couple of weeks ago, Donald Trump on a teleprompter is about as thrilling as listening to someone read the yellow pages.

him radically.

One bit of cogdis in all this is his faux support for the LGBT community after yesterday meeting with some of the most horrific anti-LGBT bigots in the country. Make that most of them.

I can't imagine how much Trump invoking him upsets you.

It's hard to get upset about it. He's such an unbelievable parody. I just can't get beyond that.

What has upset me most in this speech isn't his using Bernie's words or trying for Bernie voters, it's the fucking cognitive dissonance of reaching out to the LGBT community after yesterday meeting with the most virulent homophobic fuckwads in the country.

It's so disgusting.

More like the twenties, (the beer hall putsch was very early in Hitler's career- 1925 I think) but yeah. He's a fucking Nazi pig.

I detest him so much.

I know quite a bit about that era- and I have gotten into some pretty epic fights, both here and in other places about (mis)using the Hitler comparison. I have no problem comparing Trump the candidate with Hitler of the 20s and very early 30s.
