    When Hillary was going on about solutions about helping the inner city, it was the same typical canned responses she has been promising for 30 years. Trump’s response was right. Politicians make all these promises when they are running but once they win they do nothing. Four years later they make the same promises for votes. In the past 30 years when she had the power to do something, she didn’t.

  • GayEGO

    Hillary won as she was composed, cool, calm, can collected. Trump was his usual self and had the sniffles. Someone suggested that he may have been sniffing cocaine and I added he could have in order to help him from losing his temper.

  • John

    I didn’t have a dog in the race last night but I do not think that the debate switched any voters minds from one candidate to another. Both candidates supporters are so head strong that they are “right” and the other wrong, all that comes out of it is hateful, vile condemnation on the other side. I posted a very neutral post before the debate calling it a “trainwreck” since both candidates are so disliked and lo and behold the party of supposed compassion and tolerance jumped on me as if they were trying to save my soul from eternal hell with such nastiness. They don’t see themselves as mean-vile-nasty people but they are what they complain about from the other side. United We Stand Divided We Fall.

  • GayEGO

    @leobaga: Some politicians do make promises but they cannot keep them because of Congress gridlock. Hillary had the power for 30 years? Another Trump lie. Trump says all kinds of things, usually false.

  • leobaga

    People just don’t get it: Hillary was the better debater and politician. Therefore she lost the debate.

    This is a outsider election, passion and emotion is what won it.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: Typical from a Trump supporter. Your man failed miserably on stage. His responses? What responses were those? He couldn’t stay on subject and was all over the place. A debate shows how weak he really is.

    Not only is he incapable of completing a sentence, he cannot even deliver clear and concise ideas. He failed catastrophically and it will damage his prospects further. Trump has never done anything for anyone except himself. Maybe you should take the hint.

    I don’t post often here, but when I see such inaccuracy it needs to be called out.

    @Bob LaBlah: Giuliani has turned into a brownnosing coward. I used to respect the guy years ago. What a fall from grace.

  • NateOcean

    Now Trump is complaining that the batteries in his mic were dead. Too bad for him.

    He certainly made sure the batteries in his vibrator were at full power. What else could explain the strange noises coming from him, and the odd looks on his face than something vibrating shoved up his arse?

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: you have no clue what you are talking about. This isn’t an outsider election. This isn’t the primaries. This is the general election and people aren’t falling for Trump and his lies. She won the debate.

    By the way, two polls with actual sampling (CNN/Orc and PPP) showed her winning by a huge margin.

    Most Americans don’t want that gasbag known as Trump.

    Also, Hillary won big in the two polls I mentioned among independent and undecided voters. Again, this is the general election. Thanks for showing how much of a novice and amateur you are at this.

  • leobaga

    Hillary and the moderator blew their load, they hammered him on everything but Trump U and the Mexican judge deal. Trump still has Benghazi & the Emails to talk about. He also hasnt started pressing her about the saudis and clinton foundation.

    Trump held it back to a tie, people are going to be interested in the next debate and he is going to hang her there, I’ll be shocked if she shows up for all 3.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “Trump’s response was right. ”

    His response was “law and order”, a dog whistle for the brutalizing of all those who do not conform, or are not “white enough”. always has been, always will be. Law and order means “keep the fags in their place, keep the blacks in their place” and so on, make it safe for the good christian white folks. It has always meant that, and certainly means that to those who support Trump.

  • leobaga

    Which poll? CNN? Lol. 33% of the people surveyed in the poll identified as Independents, 41% identified as Democrats, while just 26% identified as Republicans.
    This represents a disparity of 15% between Democrats and Republicans – meaning the poll was heavily weighted in favor of Democrats before the question about who won the debate was even asked.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: You are blowing smoke. As I expected. You lack substance. Maybe Hillary should press him more on the tax returns and money being illegally diverted from a charity to pay legal bills.

    Trump didn’t hold it back to a tie. stop blowing smoke. He lost big and two polls with actual samples show that. He failed miserably. He is going to get exposed big time in the next debate. The man cannot form a coherent sentence. Maybe he really does need to skip the rest.

    Hold it to a tie lmao… Seriously. Are you grading on a curve?

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: that’s because there are more democrats than republicans. Keep blowing smoke. He lost big among independents and undecided voters last night.

    Lies and excuses from a typical Trump supporter.

  • davidjohng

    @leobaga: So Hillary has been president for the past 30 years?? She was First Lady, New York State senator and Secretary of State, a position involved in foreign affairs. None of these involved inner city issues on a national level or whatever Trump was blabbering. She actually introduced national health care while First Lady but was heavily attacked for it, as I recall, at the time by Republicans. You know the way to deal the lies is to counter with facts and truth.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga:” I’ll be shocked if she shows up for all 3.”

    I’ll be shocked if he shows up for the second. His childish remarks about his microphone are so true to form; narcissistic, shallow and childish, they set the scene for his fitful refusal to go up against a stronger and deeper intellect.

    Hillary put the email issue to rest with an actual apology for a lapse of judgement. Trumo then doubled down with a totally unsupported claim she did it intentionally. As for Bengazi, he would be unwise to bring up a fruitless waste of money by the right in an attempt to criminalize her. She will certainly remind people of the attacks on our embassies under the watch of other (mostly republican) secty’s of state, and how nobody attacked them at all.

    As for the Saudi donations to the Clinton Foundation, there is no demonstrable conflict of interest, and the work of the foundation speaks for itself. She has only to respond with the fact that the Trump foundation is coming under examination for very unseemly actions (his repeated use of the funds donated by others for personal gain). He is way dirtier than he wants others to believe she is.

  • GC1985

    By the way, there may questions about Trumps own health. Constantly sniffling, admitting he never exercises and his awful dietary habits will be big questions. Instead of preparing, he had a slice of cheesecake at a diner peddling bigotry. I think he possibly has the early onset of dementia too.

  • GC1985

    @dwes09: He used Trump foundation money to pay for legal bills. Which is highly illegal.

    It won’t surprise me if he gets indicted for that and racketeering.

  • BriBri

    A real champion for LGBT wouldn’t be bought and paid for by countries that kill gays. Hillary’s Deplorable Saudi friends
    are huge donors to the Clinton Foundation to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.
    The Deplorable Saudi’s and their Deplorable ISIS friends are also throwing gays from buildings….oh how charming.
    Hillarys Deplorable Silence=condoning.

  • GC1985

    @BriBri: distortions and lies. Trump is a guy who openly does business in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, and has major real estate deals with the Saudi Royal family. A Saudi Prince owns a major piece of real estate at Trump tower and bailed him when he made too many bad business decisions.

    Also you have no evidence. Nice try really. Lying as always like your gasbag candidate.

  • leobaga

    @GC1985: you’re a great liar just like your idol Crooked Hillary.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: You the liar here. You eat all the nonsense your soon to be indicted Trump peddles. RICO and financial fraud charges coming right up! Throw bribery in there too!

    You are woefully delusional.

  • NateOcean

    I, too, was surprised that Trump didn’t beat up on her about the emails. Instead (when Trump finally shut his pie-hole) Hillary gave a brief matter-of-fact explanation of a mistake she made and promised not to repeat it.

    In contrast, Trump has had financial problems in the past, that resulted in bankruptcy (and stiffing 1000s of people out of money owed).

    Then Trump file bankruptcy again.
    Then he did it again.
    And still once more.
    And one more time after that.
    And then another.

    He’s had SIX bankruptcies. Sounds like an abuse of the system.

  • GC1985

    *you are the liar here. This site needs an edit feature.

    And what did I lie about? Everything I said is very true. Trump has extensive business and personal ties with the Saudis and Russians too.

  • GC1985

    @NateOcean: He refuses to pay contractors, so he declares bankruptcy. He has ruined many people.

  • leobaga

    There were moments where I thought Clinton was winning then my brain kicked in and I realized Clinton was instrumental in creating many of the problems she claimed she was better qualified to fix.

    Smooth and polished by Clinton, she is a lawyer after all but if we have learned anything from previous Presidents lawyers fail when it comes to achieving real, tangible results.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: Blowing smoke again are we? You seem to take after your idol Trump. Instrumental in creating many of the problems? For goodness sakes, she was a senator and a Secretary of State. Not President.

    Dumpster has achieved nothing in his life, besides screwing over many hard working people. He put contractors out of business because he refused to pay him. If you had much of a brain, you wouldn’t be peddling the same lies as Donald.

  • GC1985

    BTW, many problems were created under the Bush administration and we are still trying to clear up that mess. Donald would be a disaster. He is a highly unstable person.

  • He BGB

    @GayEGO:
    Agreed. What could she have done as first lady of Arkansas for 8 years? Or first lady of White House for 8 years? She was a senator from New York about 10 or 15 years ago and just recently was Secretary of State. Trump was way off on this.

  • dwes09

    @BriBri: “A real champion for LGBT wouldn’t be bought and paid for by countries that kill gays. Hillary’s Deplorable Saudi friends”

    The work done by the Clinton Foundation is well documented, and the foundation is obviously not Hillary Clinton. It provides direct work in the field to alleviate health/public health problems and promote the economic empowerment of women in the undeveloped/developing world. Doing good with the donations of evil people by the Clinton Foundation should be lauded. ALL American politicians in high office cozy up to the House of Saud (few more than the Bush and Chaney clan though) because of the political need to do so. As already noted, Trump has engaged the Saudis for personal gain, a very different thing.

    Contrast that with Trump’s “charity”. He uses the money donated by others (he has not donated any money to it in the last 8 years) to pay off personal bills and buy art for himself! Trump is a narcissist, Clinton a pragmatist. Which would you rather have in office?

  • He BGB

    @GC1985:
    I was worried he was going to collapse, have a stroke or heart attack or freak out. And her too. At 70 or near 70 and having all that stress on them

  • GC1985

    @He BGB: She looked fine to me and she has to put up with a lot. I still remember that 11 hour hearing that discovered absolutely nothing.

    I think Trump was pretty close at lunging at her. If he decides to debate again, she should have a bodyguard near by.

  • NateOcean

    @GC1985: I assumed he would just start flinging poo.

    That’s what angry orangutans do you know.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: ” Presidents lawyers fail when it comes to achieving real, tangible results.”

    Lincoln was a lawyer. Nixon (who we need to recognize for his environmental work as well as his foreign policy with china) was a lawyer. John Quincy Adams was a lawyer. James Polk was a lawyer. All of these are recognized as historically important presidents who advanced the role of the US. Most are highly ranked by historians. In a few years the legacy of Obama will add him to that list.

    As with most regressives you seem to value your imagination over actual facts.

  • Heywood Jablowme

    I liked the part where Trump essentially bragged that, yes, he doesn’t pay any taxes. Because he’s “smart.” (Why be so coy, then, about releasing his tax returns?) But later of course he denied saying it, even though 100 million people heard him say it.

    @He BGB: Trump hasn’t had a vacation since 1989. Must be verrrrry stressed out!

  • jasoncoxz

    @leobaga: And thats is his answer to innercitys problem…complaining about what politicians done (or not done before) very constructive!

  • Josh447

    Hillary was like a bird w catnip bobbing on a string. Donald the cat was jumping up and down every second, but Hillary is one smart bird. Morris the cat is very disappointed in mad cat Donald. “He has no class, a total hot head,very embarrassing to the cat community”.

  • Bauhaus

    Hillary mopped the floor with sniffle sniffle gulp gulp – she rope-a-doped his ass. Trump looked shell-shocked at the end of the debate.

  • leobaga

    Trump gained knowledge of the enemy without becoming decisively engaged this first round. I believe many tuned-in to see the man they heard was a ‘raging bully, idiot, and xyz-ist’; only to be surprised by the obvious 2v1 unfairness and his composure.

    He will hopefully be more nimble in defending the ‘gotcha’ soundbite attacks and pin down Hillary on her shitty record, lying and scandals.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “Trump gained knowledge of the enemy without becoming decisively engaged”

    He mugged, interjected, squirmed and generally acted like a spoiled child being disciplined. He has been skewered by every fact checking organization and by pundits on both sides of the aisle. He was engaged in the worst possible way.
    Nobody was surprised by his composure, and clearly you were listening to the radio and not watching the visuals!

    Please mention even one “gotcha soundbite attack”, keeping in mind that pointing out actual lies does not qualify. His scandals are real, hers are all failed allegations that he would be VERY foolish to bring up again. I find it very odd that he continues to claim he did not say or do things that are recorded for all eternity on video, in the media and on his own tweets. There seems to be a lot of truth to the claims of his detractors that he lives in his own imaginary world. You seem to live there too.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “many tuned-in to see the man they heard was a ‘raging bully, idiot, and xyz-ist’; only to be surprised by the obvious 2v1 unfairness and his composure.”

    There was more than enough of the bully displayed, especially towards the end where he showed his true temperament. His falsehoods regarding crime, jobs and the efficacy of “stop and frisk” (and that these are falsehoods is well supported) show his idiocy in how he repeats lies over and over even after they are clearly shown to be lies. His pomposity fell flat, his pursed lips and rolling eyes were true indications of his haughty temperament.

    All that aside, if you are actually a gay person how can you support a man who has stated that he will roll back marriage equality and give fundamentalist “values” christians more than any previous administration has given them in the past? We know Trumps connection with reality is tenuous, yours seems just as thin.

  • leobaga

    I see it as every second she attacked him was a second she lost to promote her policies. She squandered all her time without telling us how she will Make America Great Again. And to be clear, she attacked his character and not his policies.

    In contrast, Trump attacked her experience, not character. Clinton’s email scandal is a crime that is currently being investigated by Congress and the FBI, not the National Enquirer. He also attacked her on her failed policies over 3 decades and direct responsibility for the rise of ISIS. These point primarily to her bad professional judgment (and secondarily to character) which threatens our national security, the first and foremost responsibility of a federal government.

  • Evji108

    @leobaga: You people keep calling Trump an outsider. He is pretending to be an outsider, nobody is more hooked up to politics, lobbying, payoffs, back room deals and rich people’s problems than Trump. Yachts, private jets, 10,000 sq ft penthouse apartments, Golf Course mansions – Some outsider. Yeah he really cares about your problems, good luck with that.

  • leobaga

    Some will nitpick and count up all the times he interrupted her and use this as proof he has bad temperament, when they miss the actual substance. He has proposed many policies and brought them up last night (eg, stop and frisk, which he defended as constitutional [search: Terry v. Ohio] when both Hillary and Lester erroneously claimed otherwise); keeping jobs in US by increasing disincentives for them to leave in the first place), while she was only attacking his character. Another example of difference in their professionalism is their picks for guests (Mark Cuban vs Benghazi hero).

  • Evji108

    I think Trump has a case of snyphilis.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: blah blah blah. You are blowing more smoke and now you are making excuses for Trump’s shitty performance (debacle). Trump was unhinged and ranted incoherently. Of course you connect with his used car salesman antics. You love lies.

    And Hillary is proven to tell the truth more than Trump. Far more. Check politifact.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: Now he is just making things up. Trump attacked her personally. And her experience? She has more experience than he will ever have. He is a lying liar and you love it.

    @leobaga: Notice how troll clown here can only bring up stop and frisk (which is completely ineffective and actually unconstitutional).

    She had strong substance on the economy, cyber terrorism and international issues all day. All Trump had was a few minutes of weak talking points and lies.

    She elaborated on what she would do. Maybe Trump could actually explain how he will get something accomplished and not just say he will do it.

  • GC1985

    @Evji108: He cares more about his golf courses and yachts in Dubai.

    Leobaga will go on and on spouting talking points.

    Hillary is someone of policy and substance. She specializes in ideas. Trump uses a used car salesman routine.

    Leobaga is a perfect example of someone who would buy a sh*tbox lemon from Trump.

  • GC1985

    BTW, the email “scandal”? Overblown by Republicans. You have nothing Leo. How about addressing the racketeering in Trump university and illegally using charity money to pay legal bills?

    You have nothing, Leo.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: ” She squandered all her time without telling us how she will Make America Great Again.”

    Both she and the moderator made it clear from the start that the economy was better than is had been, and that job growth had been greater than hoped for, this immediately gave lie to his lame slogan of “Make America Great Again”. They cynicism implicit in this slogan comes from a lie-based skepticism and disconnect from reality. She was very clear in how she would address existing problems, he just blustered and lied. He lied about jobs leaving (well documented), he lied about stop and frisk (well documented), he lied about trends in crime since the 1990’s in terms of rates and causes. She attacked BOTH his policies and his character, as well she should. And in so doing demonstrated the truth in criticisms of his thin skin and thoughtlessness.

    “Trump attacked her experience, not character. Clinton’s email scandal is a crime that is currently being investigated by Congress and the FBI.” He attacked her “stamina” and her “look”, these are not criticisms of her policies. He told a lot of lies in “attacking her record”, you should check that out. And she is neither being investigated for or alleged to have committed any crime, as the director of the FBI has made very clear on several occasions. Trump, on the other hand is slated to be investigated for fraud over his defunct “Trump University”, and is also being investigated regarding the personal misuse of funds from his Trump Foundation.

    As for any responsibility he claims she bears for the rise of ISIS, that is simply fantasy on his part. ISIS is an outgrowth of the same conditions that gave rise to the Taliban and al Qaida, as well as the other Jihadists. They ALL have their genesis in the actions taken by both the US and Russia in Afghanistan as well as mistakes made in Iraq (and Clinton’s hawkishness there is not one of them). While she was the wife of a governor and the wife of a president, she has neither the authority nor the ability to legislate or necessarily advise. What part of that do you not understand? As a senator she was one parson, and in that role she showed an ability to be bipartisan and to form compromises. As Secretary of State she demonstrated similar abilities. In pointing out Trump’s freedom with insults, thin skin, lack of deep thought and ruthless abuse of contractors and employees, she is not simply “attacking character”, but showing the very things that make him unqualified to be the President.

    Your arguments boil down to “here is what trump says he did, and because he says so it is so”.

  • leobaga

    Breaking: Minnesota is now a battleground state. Reagan didn’t even win Minnesota. Poor Hillary. She’s going to lose Bigly.

  • baggins435

    Trump is like my idiot youngest brother. He lies when telling the truth would be just as easy, and nothing is EVER his fault. There is always some convoluted excuse that would be mildly entertaining from an 8 yo, but lame as hell from a 40 yo, much less a presidential candidate. Trump even started early by saying the debate would be “rigged” against him. Then the “mic problem.” Clinton is by no means perfect, but she is better than anyone the GOP has, completely ignoring their anti-LGBT platform, and the stated desire to end marriage equality. The problem is too many people, once again, aren’t planning on voting when this is going to be one of the most, if not THE most important presidential election in recent memory. I live in Utah where there are many who would/should vote Democrat, but since the state is predominately GOP, they think their vote won’t count. Of course it won’t count if you don’t get off your butt and vote.

  • OzJosh

    @Evji108: As in… “I don’t know for sure, but I’ve heard a lot of talk”. I think anyone anti-Trump should spread this rumour, just as he spread the birther lies. It could go viral in no time.

  • leobaga

    Lester Holt lied. Trump didn’t start the birther movement. Hillary did and she said he was a muslim too and here’s that absolute proof. Will Lester Holt apologize?
    Screw that Brian Williams lied about less and he lost his job. Lester Holt affected a whole presidential election.

    Trump even corrected Lester and Lester doubled down on his lie

  • GC1985

  • GC1985

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “You’re delusional as always. Just like your idol. Sad.”

    Funny how after posting a link to an article that does not even support your idol’s imaginary claims, you call someone who posts based on reality “delusional”. If by some horrid twist of fate, or as a result of stupidity on the part of the electorate (such as the kind you demonstrate) we do end up with Trump as president, you will soon be horrified by what a poor job he does. He has demonstrated not just a lack of knowledge about the actual mechanics of our government, but also about how we interact with other nations.

    Government is not business, except in the case of fascism, and we all know how poorly that works out for the marginalized (and if you are actually a gay man rather than some cynical right wing hack, you might be aware that we remain marginalized in many ways).

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “You’re delusional as always.”

    And speaking of delusional, thinking a businessman of questionable judgment and ethics will make a good president is as delusional as the statement you made earlier that lawyers don’t make good presidents.

    It is important to at least try and keep your statements rooted in reality. At least try.

  • GC1985

    @dwes09: Leo is a special kind of delusional. Just like the delusional orange hair wacko he supports.

    Hillary had more votes in the primaries… way more than Trump. Yet Leo can’t be bothered to explain that one.

    @dwes09: Trump lacks even basic people skills. It’s so bad he has had a run in with just about everybody. Keith Richards, for example, knew the guy was an a-hole years ago. Threatened him to a knife fight.

  • GC1985

    I even hear republicans are embarrassed by Trump’s little meltdown. He totally crashed and burned yesterday. It was easily one of the worst debate performances in history. Hillary planted traps and he took the bait every single time. This could have serious lasting damage on his poll numbers. People pay attention more to the first debate than even the conventions.

  • leobaga

    @GC1985: Trump got more more votes in a Republican nominating contest than anyone on record.

    Hillary Clinton got more votes when she lost in 2008 than she got this year, when she won. To the point about how fiercely contested contests boost turnout, when Hillary Clinton ran against Barack Obama in 2008, the two each got more than 17 million votes. (They also had a strong third candidate, John Edwards, in the race early on.) This year, with a still-hard-fought-but-not-as-close contest, turnout was down.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: he is distorting statistics now. Hillary got more votes than Trump and more than she did in 2008.

    Trump got around the same as Bernie. So much for that so called record turn out.

    How the hell can you support a man who wants to treat you like a piece of dirt? Answer that genius! Total utter disgrace and if you are indeed Latino and gay, you are a treacherous backstabbing coward.

  • leobaga

    @GC1985: why can’t you admit that you hate Trump so much because you’re an illegal alien or a total sissy, either way you should stop smoking weed. You are sounding more and more insane.

  • girldownunder

    Many US political pundits are aligning that a win for Trump would spell the end of the GOP, prompting the chance in 2020 of a serious revolution to change the corrupt/rigged (Wasserman Schultz) voting process. Assuming he doesn’t do anything outright horrible, like sell Manhattan to Putin, it might be a good thing after all….A win for HRC will be a same ol’, same ol’ for everyone, it seems (in bed w/banks, war-mongering, etc). The fact that she’s “expert” at this is what is so worrisome to so many.

    Add to that the fact that more GOP turn out to vote than do Democrats + the wild-card of where the Sanders votes go– & Trump as POTUS is NOT far-fetched, at all. It’s really just incredibly insane!

    Wth happened to the USA, that both parties are now so despicable?

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: You are an uneducated bigot. I am a US citizen. I will vote. You seem to be a disgusting delusional liar. I don’t smoke weed. I have a feeling you arent gay or Latino. That is just a cover story for a lying troll.

  • GC1985

    @girldownunder: Dream on! Trump is more corrupt than anyone. A good thing? Under what planet? These trolls… Trump has been dealing in politics for decades, going back to the Reagan administration.

    and the GOP turnout wasn’t really that good. Hillary has a major edge in the electoral college. Trump being President… A good thing? In what reality? He is a temperamental corrupt dingbat.

  • GC1985

    I just fail to see how Trump would being change. He is in bed with big banks and is constantly finding ways to screw over people. How you can somehow twist that into a good thing is mind boggling. Trump is the most corrupt candidate in history, with looming bribery, racketeering and fraud investigations clouding over him. But we should take your word that he is different.

    What a crock of BS.

  • girldownunder

    @GC1985

    Calm down. Shooting the messenger isn’t really worthwhile. I have no direct interest in the outcomes, I am relating what the rest of the world is gathering based on what your OWN news/journalists/newspapers report.

    If Clinton was so eminently superior, there would be no “Omg, Trump” moment, at all. That, tells us that there is a very real chance of Trump winning the election. The fact is- no one knows what will happen.

    The “good thing” was not Trump as POTUS, but that a win for him would light a fire in the USA for a true change to the current system.

  • Evji108

    @leobaga: Leobaga, you are just trolling this site, we aren’t buying your BS. Go suck Trump’s D*ick since you love him so much. Why are so many right-winger nut cases trolling this site? is it on some kind of “go troll the homos”, list at Breitbart?

  • 1EqualityUSA

    I’m with her.

  • leobaga

    I’m not gay? That’s hilarious! You’d be surprised how many gay and Hispanic supporters Trump has!

    Here’s Hillary the great liar as proof: https://youtu.be/EAmHYIkAYhw

  • GC1985

    @girldownunder: Many in the press are actually saying he doesn’t have a good chance at all. The rest of the world? Oh wow. So interesting. We have a messenger here for the rest of the world.

    Trump had a better chance of getting closer to Hillary about a week ago, but he still would lose. The system is structured into the electoral college. Hillary has a major advantage and the fact that Texas, Georgia and Arizona all look competitive are causing Republicans to spend more in that state.

    Trump is even further damaged by the lack of organization on the ground. This is what the media here has said many times.

    Your criticisms of Hillary have no merit by the way.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: All the polls say about 80% of Latinos are supporting Hillary… so you are just a liar. Trump is a psychotic homophobic bigot that wants to deport Latinos. Even the ones here legally. So get a clue you loser.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: Now he is posting YouTube videos… As if they are sources. Somebody ban this troll.

    For one, look up Hillary’s speech to the United Nations in 2011 on LGBT rights. She was speaking out for us, while your idol Trump was slamming any form of rights for gay people. Hillary gave the speech to the UN under no political pressure. She wasn’t running for office nor was she elected.

    You tool! You support someone who hates your guts.

  • GC1985

    Aw look the uneducated troll couldn’t address the topic, therefore had to deflect and change the subject. Like the psychotic half wit he supports.

  • GC1985

    Leobaga… Values honesty? Why support Trump who lies his face off? He said he never supported the war in Iraq. Lie 1. He said he never made the statement that the Chinese invented global warming. Lie 2. He said his mic was broken. Lie 3.

    Those are just a couple…

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “I’m not gay? That’s hilarious! You’d be surprised how many gay and Hispanic supporters.”

    If you were to actually have some sort of empirical/statistical support for the delusion that trump has anything but the most minimal support from lgbt people and latino/hispanics we might think you other than a sad buffoon. But alas, i do not think you do. And as for one unfortunate fib from Hillary regarding her past statements on NAFTA, that is a WHOLE lot less than the pile of lies Trump tried top get away with…the same lies he has been called on time and time again.

    And a large number of people here assume you are not gay, and most likely white, as there are few gay folks and Latinos stupid enough to vote against their own clear self interest as well as that of the future of their country. Most folks here assume you are the sock puppet of a hetero, white right wingnut with more than one alias here. And they are probably correct.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: nonexistent token supporters. Stupid like Don King.

    Look at overall polls, you dimwit.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: morons for dumpster! Maybe they should just give up their rights. Only a stupid fool would support that man.

    Look at the polls you dimwit.

  • GC1985

    Aw look… The little troll is citing some articles about a few self hating gas bags who support Dumpster.

    Never mind that 80% of Latinos are strongly against Trump and for Hillary. Even more than those against Romney. And for gays? That number is closer to 90%.

  • leobaga

    @GC1985: it must hurt to know the truth. Drug addict. Imbecile. Illegal.

  • GC1985

    @dwes09: he is not gay nor is he Latino. He is a liar.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: I specifically asked for EMPIRICAL support for your delusions, not a few anecdotes. Amusingly you seem not to have noticed that your two “trumpista” articles had some overlap in the tiny number of people they found. So perhaps there are 12 or 15 people in the southwest of latin descent supporting trump. That is what the articles imply. You give anecdotes, not statistical support, please learn the difference so as not to be a laughingstock.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: And more gays for Trump:

    And the same thing is true of your article about lgbt folks with their tongues up Trumps bumhole. It lists perhaps 12 individuals (ANECDOTE), and the one about the couple has the STATISTIC at the end that 84% of gay voters support Clinton, 16% support Trump. It is shocking to me that such a large percentage of gay folks want to abdicate their rights and be forced back into the closet by those Trump has more clearly said he will favor (He specifically said that evangelical Christians will enjoy greater favor and influence than they have ever known in the US, and you may be intellectually impaired, but surely you know that that means).

    No go home and leave the gay and lesbian people alone, we don’t want breeders like you coming here to harass us. You have all the space you need, DO NOT invade and bring your toxic crap here.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: ” it must hurt to know the truth. Drug addict. Imbecile. Illegal.”

    It’s funny to hear the one Log Cabiner and his few screename either Keep trying to change the topic or to scream “Trump was Right!” but then he can’t elaborate because Trump never provided any details about which he could be right.

    OMG. The fat Colombian drag queen is back from her deportation. We threw your illegal brown ass out of the country for a reason Giancarlo, and we really hoped you would settle down in the basement of your mother’s hut in Colombia and stay out of the USA forever. But somehow you have sneaked back into my country where you are not wanted or needed. We have enough fat trans dressing welfare queens, we don’t want another.It looks like you gained still more weight during your deportation. Do you have fungus growing in your abdominal folds? Do you use Nystatin cream or powder? Can you see your penis if you pull-up the fat rolls? Can you wipe your ass or your hand doesn’t reach all the way around? There are 108 comments on this thread and half of them are yours. So, I’ve said it a thousand times in the past, just STFU Giancarlo and here’s to hoping for another deportation to your third world hut somewhere south of the border.

  • o.codone

    Above post is for the fake bitch GC 1985. Giancarlo the twunt.

  • GC1985

    @dwes09: 84%… And yet he is yapping about some token gays supporting the GOP.

    @o.codone: Speaking of drug addicts… Here is everyone’s favorite. That post is headache inducing. Ever heard of the enter key? Nobody wants to read it, you reject. You were kicked out of the military because of your drug addiction.

    Oh I never left. I just post less.

  • GC1985

    @dwes09: He is ridiculous isn’t he? Well check out ocodone and his insane rant. He made up all this [email protected] That is what happens when one is hooked on prescription medications.

    Ocodone is a guy who suffers from mental delusions. He was kicked out of [email protected] because he was abusing pills. Apparently life was too stressful for the blob. Plus his prescription medication addiction caused him to gain about one hundred pounds rendering him unfit to serve. He complained in the past that he was [email protected] Lol.

    Everything Ocodone posts is a messed lie and is influenced by his five pill a day prescription drug habit. He is incapable of holding a job because he can’t [email protected] a drug test, therefore lives with his mom who pays for his habit. Sad isn’t it?

  • GC1985

    @dwes09: Mitt Romney was more appealing than Donald Trump… And that says it all.

    That drubbing in the debate may have hurt Trump more than first thought. 84 million watched him lose his cool and resort to hysterics. Trump does not handle pressure well and 84 million saw that.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Mittens scared me more than this wad. Donald Trump will lay back and let “the experts” take over. Donald Rumsfeld dusted himself off and hit the airwaves recently. Ted Cruz must be so psyched. Under artifice, a U.S. president, donning suits designed to cloak, Mr. Trump will lay back and let the players play…all day. Mr. Ted Cruz (Cross) will make his move. trusTed will be able to introduce his personal vision for our world. The elders in his church hailed Based on his adamantly held beliefs, our existence will be steered by his mind’s reasonings. Politicizing the Supreme Court for four decades is their shiny bauble. Robert P. George is so going Opus Dei on us in a perky, jubilant fashion. (ew) Religion and politics are volatile. Oppression does not win hearts, though the Heritage Foundation would disagree. Mr. Trump is disgracing our country, just as he has disgraced himself, his families, and those around him. On his avaricious climb to worldly wealth, an unbridled ego made decisions that defined him. It defines what he deems relevant. Small businesses, unfortunate to have entered into a working relationship with this man, would be left holding the bag. Our decisions define us. You can tell what kind of soil in which his spiritual roots rest. He bears bitterness. To think that he eats with that mouth. His words are atrocious and unenlightened. My sadness is seeing my country allowing such a creature onto the national stage. For every day that passes, Mr. Trump irreparably harms our nation’s reputation. Democracy is at stake with this election.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: Less than those who supported Romney. Something around 26-27% supported Romney.

    And your previous source said 84% support Hillary. Lol. You’re a liar.

    @leobaga: That poll is of an older demographic. It is also swayed towards republicans and has a 4.5% margin of error. In addition, most of it was taken several days before the debate. They just average it out. You failed again. It isn’t really an after debate poll and Hillary is winning those.

  • GC1985

    @leobaga: You need some meds and maybe need to be institutionalized. Look at it this way, be sure to quote something that actually supports what you say.

    Do you realize several polls previous gave her a 4-7% lead? That is only going to grow now. Various state polling will also show improvement and that is already being seen. Like in Minnesota where she has regained a solid lead. LA Times has been an outlier with dubious methods and an enormous margin of error.

  • GC1985

    Trump is causing a registration boom and party switching… for democrats. In Texas, there has been a 30% increase in registration of Latinos who favor Hillary heavily in the state (70-75% in favor). There is word Texas has now moved into swing state status, like Georgia. Meanwhile, republican registration is actually down.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Likely too embarrassed to call themselves, “Republicans.”

  • GC1985

    New Reuters/IPSOs poll.. Which had the two within 1 or 2% before.

    44%-38%. Hillary has a +6% lead over Trump. This is a several day tracking poll. It is only partially taking into account the debate. The fact that the debate had an immediate impact could shift this poll even further into her favor. The poll also has a smaller margin of error than the LA Timed.

    Now what is striking isn’t the lead. It is the fact Trump has fallen below 40% support once again into the upper 30s. If this becomes a trend it could jeopardize not just the Republicans bid for Presidency, but also endanger them in both the house and senate.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “Trump leading by 4. Sweet!”

    Do you read? And if so, do you understand?
    Note the specific questions asked and the breadth of the shown “area of uncertainty”. At almost no point in the time span covered (and not at the moment) has the spread exceeded the area of uncertainty. By it’s own methodology, this poll tells us nothing.

  • dwes09

    @leobaga: “20% of lgbqt voters support Trump. That’s unprecedented for a GOP nominee.”

    Once again, YOU HAVE TO READ THE ACTUAL ARTICLE TO KNOW WHAT IT IS SAYING. It states plainly that this is hardly unprecedented, and lists several more sane GOP candidates that polled higher in the past. And the article is not at all charitable to the deluded LGBT folks who are supporting Trump.
    You really need to learn the lesson that reality is not in any way connected to or affected by your imagination.

  • Giandorko86

    Anyone else think Mr Trump won the debate and will become our next president ?

  • GC1985

    @dwes09: Mitt Romney polled higher. Says it all really. I think even Dubya did lol. In fact both Romney and Dubya scored better among minorities than Trump does lol.

    @Giandorko86: fake account is fake.

    @dwes09: That isn’t the only problem with the poll. It polls older people mainly who still newsprint. Plus it has one of the worst margin of errors. Their methodology is terrible.

  • lelandjr

    If Hillary wins, it will be on the backs of paranoid queers, de po black folks who’ve squandered their handouts for the last 55 yrs, and gleeful Muslims who know Sharia law will be just around the corner. I’ll give her this though; she can lie at the drop of a hat, her draft dodging husband taught her well.

  • GC1985

    @lelandjr: Lie… Like how much Trump lies to your face? I think not. She is actually far more truthful than he is.

    And cut it out with the Sharia law nonsense.

    And draft dodging? Who are you kidding, joker?

    Trump had a total of five military deferments. One was for a minor health issue.

    Don’t throw stones from a glass house.

    I am voting for Hillary because she will offer stability. Not reckless cowboy politics and a collapsed economy Trump would offer.

  • Bauhaus

    @GC1985:
    There’s no reasoning with the Trump cult – it’s telling that so few of the regular Trump blowhards on here are posting their usual rubbish, post debate. Not much for them to say after Hillary mopped the floor with that dimwit.

  • GC1985

    @Bauhaus: Mopped the floor is an understatement lol :)

    Anyways… Two more polls from Michigan. +5% and +6% for Hillary. Apparently her message is resonating. Trumps false attempt to degrade her on trade deals is failing. We will see with other polls, but I expect her to reestablish strong leads. The first debate was the most important this year because many more were watching than previous elections. A record amount.

    Trump is in big trouble if the trends continue.

  • GC1985

    *Correction: Michigan and Washington.

    Either way, Trump saying he pays little or no federal tax offended many people. That slip could have cost him states like Michigan. I think Iowa and Ohio could flip right back to Hillary too away from toss up status.

    Where is Kieran? The guy who said Trump would moderate after becoming nominee. He hasn’t moderated one bit. He has been even more nasty.
