He f*cking "APOLOGIZED." Of course, it's fake. But if you were looking for the Breitbart pivot...

...just realize this happened about 30 seconds after Trump brought Bannon on board. The snake is already slithering through the grass, and some people will believe this horseshit.

Trump says he regrets comments that may have caused pain


WASHINGTON (AP) — For the first time since declaring his presidential run, Republican Donald Trump expressed regret for saying things that may have hurt people.

“Sometimes in the heat of debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that,” the GOP nominee, reading from prepared text, said at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. “And believe it or not, I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain.”

He added: “Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues.” As the crowd cheered, Trump pledged to “always tell you the truth.”

The remarks came as Trump makes significant changes to a campaign that has struggled since the Democratic and Republican nominating conventions from self-created distractions. Earlier Thursday, Trump moved to invest nearly $5 million in battleground state advertising to address daunting challenges in the states that will make or break his White House ambitions. He also shook up his campaign in recent days, tapping a combative conservative media executive, Stephen Bannon, to serve as CEO of the campaign.

North Carolina GOP Out to Limit Crucial Early Voting Period

Source: NBC News

When Barack Obama carried North Carolina in 2008 and came close in 2012, it was thanks in part to a massive advantage in early voting. Now, aiming to avoid a repeat, state Republicans are waging a relentless and brazen campaign to limit early voting opportunities — all but acknowledging that lower turnout benefits the GOP.

The state is likely to be among the closest in the presidential race this fall, and it also hosts tight races for governor and senator. Any Democratic strategy for victory will rely heavily on turning out early voters.

On Monday, Gov. Pat McCrory asked the U.S. Supreme Court to put the ID requirement and the early voting cuts back into effect. The state did not challenge the restoration of same-day registration or out-of-precinct voting. If the high court declines to intervene, as looks likely, Republicans have a backup plan: Pressuring local election boards to make early voting as inconvenient as possible.

Early voting has become extremely popular in recent elections in North Carolina, and it's disproportionately favored by African-Americans. In 2008, over 60 percent of black voters cast their ballots early, compared to 44 percent of white voters, according to one expert analysis. In 2012, those figures rose to 64 percent and 49 percent respectively.

Casino magnate Steve Wynn holds back support from friend Donald Trump

Casino magnate Steve Wynn holds back support from friend Donald Trump


Billionaire casino operator Steve Wynn is spurning his friend and longtime business rival Donald Trump in his presidential run, choosing to stay on the sidelines instead.

“I’m a friend of Donald Trump but I have not supported either candidate in the presidency as yet -- I’m friendly with Bill Clinton, I know Hillary,” Wynn said in an interview. “I’m hoping our conversation in America in this campaign gets to be more substantive, about the real issue facing us at the moment and that is a constantly increasing deficit in the government.”

Trump’s fellow casino operators have been mixed in deciding whether to back his run as the Republican nominee. MGM Resorts International Chief Executive Officer Jim Murren, a lifelong Republican, announced this week that he’s supporting Hillary Clinton because he said Trump has alienated and criticized women, the disabled, minorities and Muslim Americans. Sheldon Adelson, who runs Las Vegas Sands Corp., has endorsed Trump, though his financial commitment has been questioned.

Wynn and Trump have clashed in the past, butting heads two decades ago over development plans in Atlantic City, New Jersey, but eventually they patched things up. Wynn attended Trump’s wedding to Melania in 2005, according to the Washington Post, and Trump was there for part of Wynn’s wedding festivities in 2011, the Las Vegas Weekly reported at the time.

Pastor Darrell Scott on Trump: "Black people believe satire, black people believe parody"


Rabid Donald Trump supporter Pastor Darrell Scott went on CNN on Wednesday afternoon to defend Trump’s horrible polling numbers in black neighborhoods by claiming that black people don’t understand satire.

After shocking host Brooke Baldwin and Democratic strategist Symone Sanders by claiming Hillary Clinton is linked to white supremacists, he began to illustrate how black people falsely believe that Trump is a racist.

“The thing that kills is this,” Scott began. “Black people believe satire, black people believe parody. I mean I had a guy that I considered to be a very intelligent person, send me a headline from a satire website that said that Donald Trump plans on deporting all African-Americans back to Africa — and be believed it!

The CNN host tried to get the conversation back on track by telling Scott, “Let’s not talk about satire, let’s talk about reality.”

It's all about JUXTAPOSITION: Fox News' Eric Bolling's epic meltdown + an "adorable little raccoon"


Christie picking up your McDonald's order? SWEET! 17 cents on the dollar on casino debt? PRICELESS!

Trump casinos’ tax debt was $30 million. Then Christie took office.


By the time Chris Christie became governor of New Jersey, the state’s auditors and lawyers had been battling for several years to collect long-overdue taxes owed by the casinos founded by his friend Donald Trump.

The total, with interest, had grown to almost $30 million. The state had doggedly pursued the matter through two of the casinos’ bankruptcy cases and even accused the company led by Trump of filing false reports with state casino regulators about the amount of taxes it had paid.

But the year after Christie, a Republican, took office, the tone of the litigation shifted. The state entertained settlement offers. And in December 2011, after six years in court, the state agreed to accept just $5 million, roughly 17 cents on the dollar of what auditors said the casinos owed.

Tax authorities sometimes settle for lesser amounts to avoid the costs and risks of further litigation, legal experts said, but the steep discount granted to the Trump casinos and the relationship between the two men raise inevitable questions about special treatment.

NYT: Trump has a 12% chance of winning the Presidency. Take THAT, "Clinton Supporters!"

If I had a 12% chance of winning anything in life, I think I'd re-direct my efforts into something where my chances were better.

Note: you're going to have to go to the link to see the graph referenced in the article...it's not a JPEG that I can embed here.

Hillary Clinton has an 88% chance of winning the presidency.


The Upshot’s elections model suggests that Hillary Clinton is favored to win the presidency, based on the latest state and national polls. A victory by Mr. Trump remains quite possible: Mrs. Clinton’s chance of losing is about the same as the probability that an N.F.L. kicker misses a field goal from the 20-yard line.

From now until Election Day, we’ll update our estimates with each new poll, as well as collect the ratings of other news organizations. You can chart different paths to victory below. Here’s how our estimates have changed over time:

HOW did Breitbart's Bannon score the Trump gig? This will SHOCK you...he kissed Trump's ass.

Known as a devil-may-care conservative, Bannon’s populist and nationalist sympathies reflect his longstanding disgust with both major political parties. And like Trump, Bannon enjoys needling the political establishment. The businessman boasted in his statement Wednesday that Bannon had once been called the “most dangerous political operative in America,”

Yet for longtime aides and supporters loyal to Trump, Bannon’s hiring is cause for concern. “Bannon will play to Trump’s worst sensibilities,” said a source close to the Trump campaign, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Trump’s decision to hire Bannon followed months of conversations between the pair. Bannon urged the impulsive, angry presidential nominee to ignore people who wanted him to tone it down, according to The Washington Post.

The advice resonated with Trump, who has resisted calls to “pivot” throughout his campaign. “I am who I am,” Trump said in an interview with a Wisconsin TV station Tuesday. “I don’t want to change. Everyone talks about, ‘Oh, well you’re going to pivot, you’re going to.’ I don’t want to pivot. I mean, you have to be you. If you start pivoting, you’re not being honest with people.”


Oh, Paul "Russian 'Dirty Money' List" Manafort. You weren't a daisy at all, just too high-strung.

Trump shakes up campaign, demotes top adviser

Donald Trump, following weeks of gnawing agitation over his advisers’ attempts to temper his style, moved late Tuesday to overhaul his struggling campaign by rebuffing those efforts and elevating two longtime associates who have encouraged his combative populism.

Stephen Bannon, a former banker who runs the influential conservative outlet Breitbart News and is known for his fiercely anti-establishment politics, has been named the Trump campaign’s chief executive. Kellyanne Conway, a veteran Republican pollster who has been close to Trump for years, will assume the role of campaign manager.

Two Trump campaign aides confirmed the staff's reshuffle early Wednesday, requesting anonymity to discuss personnel changes without permission.

Trump issued a statement hours later. “I have known Steve and Kellyanne both for many years. They are extremely capable, highly qualified people who love to win and know how to win,” he said. “I believe we’re adding some of the best talents in politics, with the experience and expertise needed to defeat Hillary Clinton in November and continue to share my message and vision to Make America Great Again.”


SO, according to Hannity, America's Mayor© just "rounded up" 87 months to 8 years. USA! USA! USA!

No, Mayor Giuliani Didn't 'Forget' About September 11th In His Speech Yesterday


If you've been paying attention to the mainstream media over the past 24 hours, you'd be forgiven if you think former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani claimed there had been no terrorist attacks on US soil before President Obama during a speech in Youngstown, Ohio on Monday.

"Under those 8 years, before Obama came along, we didn't have any successful radical Islamic Terrorist attacks in the United States," Giuliani told the Youngstown audience.

In context, Giuliani was clearly talking about the 8 years following the attack, which occurred less than 9 months into George W. Bush's first term.

Another day, another dishonest attack from the media.
