Trump campaign, in flames, sits down with the RNC today. Trump will not be atending.

OK, folks, time for another exciting round of "What's Wrong With This Picture?"

1). Everyone except Trump is sh*tting bricks over not only losing the Oval Office but the House, Senate, and oh yeah...with a Democratic majority, Hillary will nominate SCOTUS judges without stonewalling.

2). This is being called (in the article) the campaign's "Come To Jesus" moment, because the campaign needs the RNC, whether they want the RNC or not. It's an intervention with everyone present except the one person who will not listen to any of the feedback or ideas his drones bring back from the meeting.

3). Trump...who said earlier this week that if he's not elected, he'll go back to his "nice life" and will take a "long, long vacation," won't be present at what is being portrayed to the media as a "routine" meeting but what is, in fact, a triage session to save as many of the dying as possible.

Sounds like victory is at hand!


The request for the Orlando Ritz Carlton meeting originated with Trump’s campaign, according to a source familiar with the broad details, and is being viewed by RNC officials as a sign that the campaign has come to grips with the difficulty it is having in maintaining a message and running a ground game.

“They want to patch up a rift that just keeps unfolding,” one source said. “They finally realize they need the RNC for their campaign because, let’s face it, there is no campaign.”

Another person familiar with the meeting, a Republican operative who works with the campaign, said the planned gathering was “a come-to-Jesus meeting.” That source said that many Trump campaign staffers share the party officials’ frustrations with Trump’s penchant for self-sabotaging rhetoric. “What’s bothering people on the campaign is that they feel like they’re doing all the right things, but they’re losing every news cycle to Hillary and there’s nothing they can do about it.”

The campaign official said Trump, who is scheduled to travel to Pennsylvania on Friday, was not slated to attend the meeting, but that Karen Giorno, a senior adviser to the campaign, was.

Huckabee Jokes About Life-Shattering Zika Virus To Attack Clinton

Huckabee Jokes About Life-Shattering Zika Virus To Attack Clinton


Zika virus is no laughing matter ― unless, apparently, you’re Mike Huckabee warming up the crowd at a Donald Trump rally.

The former Arkansas governor and failed Republican presidential candidate mocked concerns over the devastating virus so he could take a potshot at Trump’s Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, during a Wednesday evening rally for Trump in Sunrise, Florida.

“I’m a lot more afraid of a Hillary Clinton presidency than I am of getting a mosquito bite in South Florida,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee’s dismissive attitude toward the virus is not shared by women who are pregnant or may become pregnant. One day earlier, a Texas infant died in the state’s first Zika-related death.

Trump: SS spoke to me about Hillary because she's desperate & afraid of my economic policies

Wow! Hillary is desperate! They are afraid of Trump's economic policies being talked about so trying to deflect attention from that by using this.

Rolling Stone: Trump's "2nd Amendment" dog whistle, and Dr. George Tiller's assassination in 2009

This explains Donald Trump's campaign against Hillary Clinton to a letter. He has 1) demonized her whenever he can by calling her "Crooked Hillary" and constantly degrading her; 2) organized a convention around which the central theme, repeated over and over, was that Clinton is a criminal who needs to be locked up, clearly using fear and moral disgust as motivators; and 3) is now using violent metaphors (or "jokes," if that's what you think his statements were) against her, just short of an explicit call to arms.

Now we just have to hope that #4 doesn't come about – that violence does not erupt. Though, if it does, we know exactly what Trump and his supporters will say: that they never could have foreseen this tragedy.

In the world I'm most familiar with, the world of anti-abortion violence, we see this again and again from leaders of the anti-abortion movement. Tarico's post linked above is one example. This cartoon, drawn following Dr. George Tiller's assassination in 2009 (and dug up Tuesday by Michelle Kinsey Bruns), is another perfect illustration.


Following Trump's comments, we all have to hope (and, if it's your cup of tea, pray) that it doesn't come to this – that the lone wolves out there don't read this as urging someone to take the next step in the cycle.


"Authorized by the Future President of the United States"


Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been so bad that many people have wondered if it’s not just an elaborate marketing stunt gone wrong.

Trump’s campaign offered more evidence for this theory on Tuesday afternoon, when it sent out a fundraiser email that offered donors a chance to get their very own gold “Donald J. Trump Gold Executive Membership Card” if they shell out cash to the campaign.

According to Trump, the card will signify to the world that you “are tired of a government that bows down to foreigners, refuses to even say the words ‘Radical Islam,’ and leaves our borders wide open!”

Twitter users, as they are prone to do, quickly mocked the idea of a Trump Gold Card as a gimmick that’s as tacky and worthless as the candidate himself. Some examples follow below:

Michael Moore: This election is only about who SHOWS UP to the VOTING BOOTH on November 8

Please do not think for a second this election is over or in the bag. There are three long months to go. If you think that all we have to do is just let Trump keep shooting himself in the head — that “Trump will beat Trump” and the rest of us just have to sit back and watch with glee — well, you are playing with fire. And you’re looking for a way to get out of doing any work. Clearly, you’ve forgotten this election is not about whether there are more people “for” Hillary or Trump. Of course, there are more people for Hillary! She will lead in the opinion polls from now until Election Day.


Because this is not a popularity contest decided by polls (or in this year’s edition, a contest over who you dislike the least). As I’ve said, if people could vote from their sofa via their Xbox or remote control, Hillary would win in a landslide. But this election is only about who SHOWS UP to the VOTING BOOTH on November 8 (or to early voting or by absentee ballot). The election this year is not being held as usual on the first Tuesday of November; it’s happening in the second week of the month, so if you live in the top half of the country, that means a greater chance for snow or icy rain — and that means a lower turnout. A lower turnout helps Trump.

This election is ONLY about who gets who out to vote, who’s got the most rabid supporters, the kind of candidate who inspires people to get out of bed at 5 a.m. on Election Day because a Wall needs to built! Muslims are killing us! Women are taking over! USA! USA! Make My Penis Great Again! Hillary is the Devil! America First! Fetus First! First in Line at the Polls!

Trump's Communications Adviser: "2nd Amendment" remarks were "the power of unification"

But Jason Miller, Trump's senior communications adviser, said Trump was merely talking about Second Amendment supporters large influence as a group.

"It's called the power of unification -- 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won't be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump," he said.

The former head of the CIA, retired Gen. Michael Hayden, told CNN's Jake Tapper: "If someone else had said that said outside the hall, he'd be in the back of a police wagon now with the Secret Service questioning him."

US Secret Service communications director Cathy Milhoan told CNN the agency "is aware of Mr. Trump's comments."
