1. No...Actually it is ok. He is coming across as the idiot/nutjob

that we all know him to be. It is (as the Donald would say) a total DISASTER.

2. He's holding a press conference. I think you are allowed to do that.

He's also making an ass of himself, maybe the biggest so far. He just advocated treason.

3. It's actually great for Dems. The more his stupidity is front and center

the better for us. One dumb press conference is hardly a "hijacking."

5. He's just rambling

But msnbc has him on without commercials. Yet the Dem convention was so full of commercials and talking head interruptions I had to go to c-span

So he's doing this to get attention back to himself. Bad attention... but attention.

What a blowhard narcissist he is.

19. Any time that Trump rants incoherently, as he seems to be doing today,

it is not terrible for Dems.

He's providing a very relevant example of just how far apart the two parties are.

The only time Trump does remotely well is when he doesn't speak off the cuff for a few weeks.

24. I don't know what Trump did

Because you provide no context.

However, it almost doesn't matter anymore. He is playing a game that no one in the DNC or even HRC or the genius politician Bill Clinton know how to play.

Their standard tactics of attacking him only speak to the choir.

I was astonished this week when I learned two faculty members with whom I work are voting for Trump. These are people that I never thought in a million years would entertain such an idea.

I am a communications teacher and have also worked in marketing communications. I've worked for Fortune 100 companies in positions at the director level. I do not know what I would do if I had to advise anyone about how to deal with Trump.

28. To those saying this is a good thing. I disagree.

I can see both sides but he's throwing things out there that he knows will be talked about long after he steps away from the mic.

He said some crazy stuff and I only caught a tiny part. Him goading on Russia is insane. If they do dump the emails then wouldn't he be an accomplice to a crime?
