  1. Someone please kill me now. On Fox & Friends, I just saw a clip of last night’s Jimmy Fallon show with Jeb Bush “slow jamming” about the issues. On immigration, Jeb said “We’re a nation of immigrants and I believe everyone should have a chance to achieve the American dream.” Everyone?? Okay, let’s welcome a few hundred million new immigrants a year then, Jeb???

    Oh, and Jeb also offered a translation in Spanish for all Jimmy’s Spanish speaking viewers. (I’m sure you’ll love that one, Girly1!)

    Give me a break. THIS is buffoonery!! Yet, the cover of today’s Daily News calls Donald Trump a clown. And the talking heads on both sides of the aisle are belittling, ridiculing, and dismissing Trump as a joke while we currently have a POTUS who does “selfie-stick” videos and interviews with Glozell the bathtub cereal lady!

    I’m just catching up here on yesterday’s posts and comments, and appreciating all the comments and opinions on Trump. I found myself somewhat surprisingly agreeing with and appreciating much of what he said yesterday. I’d truly love a kick-a$$ president who could actually run this government and get things done. I highly doubt that a President Trump would be spending his days doing selfie-stick videos and chatting it up with doofus YouTube personalities.

    I just read this article about Trump and his speech:

    One part that really got my attention was:

    ““Our country needs a truly great leader and we need a truly great leader now,” Trump said, just before saying he’s running. “We need a leader that wrote ‘The Art of the Deal’ … that can bring back our jobs, our manufacturing, our military … And we also need a cheerleader.”

    That “cheerleader” part perked up my ears. That’s because back in 2008 when the economy came crashing down right before the election and all I heard was Obummer CONSTANTLY bashing this country, I kept saying I want a president who is this country’s biggest cheerleader, both here and around the world! A president who can help us through terrible times, whether it be a crashed economy, or wars and terrorism, who will tell us that yes, this is awful, but this is AMERICA. We’ve been through terrible times, and we have ALWAYS come back. We WILL get through this and we will be better and stronger! Instead, Obummer bashed the hell out of this country, freaking got elected, and sadly, went on an apology tour around the world. For seven long years, I’ve been repeatedly saying that I want – and we DESERVE – a president who will be our biggest cheerleader, both here and around the world. One who lifts us up, inspires confidence in us individually and as a nation, that we will survive anything, and THRIVE once again. And, one who will PROUDLY represent us and our interests around the world.

    Please, God, hear my prayer. (And I promise to cut back on the coffee and the early morning rants ;> )

    • Thanks for the rant, Snark. I feel better, too.

      Just heard one of the MSNBC reporters confront Trump on his ‘rapists coming over the border’ comment. He threw it right back in her face and added ‘murderers’ and ‘drug dealers’ to the charge.
      It’s all true, and
      Trump will never back down.

      This is the year of the ‘Hispanderer’. The demographics are just about perfect for the
      DEMS. He who doesn’t ‘hispander’ is lost.

      On the bright side, it’s heart-warming to hear someone who still believes
      America is that
      ‘shining city on a hill’ and isn’t afraid to verbalize it in no uncertain terms.

  2. OT: On Fox a this morning. Trump said only tell truth. Mexico has not sent their best, drug dealers, sex offenders, the worse.
    No checks and balances. Were like a dumping ground.
    We have leaders with no clue.
    Fox told him media don’t like you. Trump said. Daily news will be out of buisness. Not a fan of krauthamer. He knows that, so I am not worried about his comment.
    I have built a 9 billion dollar network, and people say I am not qualified. Yet some 3rd rate Senator does. Give me a break.
    China steals white kids jobs.
    China responded with a paragragh.
    China said it’s a win win situation.
    Trump said: Win win for who?
    They take money, jobs, manf.
    We have stupid leaders and an incompetent president.

  3. OT:
    Why is Blumentals meeting with The House Select Committe going to be behind Closed Doors?
    Why isn’t she going to be there as well?

  4. OT: I just saw Jeb singing on Jimmy Fallen show. He as well spoke spanish.
    I have Irish, French, german, etc. in my family.
    I would like him to speak/sing in those languages as well. SARC!!!
