One of the unique characteristics of Donald Trump’s “reality TV” candidacy is his predilection for coining derogatory nicknames for his rivals. It’s a particularly childish habit that exemplifies the stunted emotional growth of a snotty elementary school bully. He has used this smarmy tactic against “Little” Marco Rubio, “Lyin'” Ted Cruz, “Crazy” Megyn Kelly, “Crooked” Hillary Clinton, and others. In most cases it can be better explained as projection of his own character flaws.
Yesterday Trump tweeted another of his petulant insults that have become the hallmark of his campaign to malign the presidency (he says he may start “acting” presidential soon). This one was directed at Hillary Clinton and said…
“Crooked Hillary Clinton, perhaps the most dishonest person to have ever run for the presidency.”
Coming from Donald Trump this is nearly hysterical. Virtually everything that comes out of his mouth is either painfully ignorant, grossly insulting, or demonstrably false. News Corpse has been collecting Trump’s voluminous anthology of untruths in the Trump Bullshitopedia, an ever-expanding catalog of his lies.
The media watchdogs at PolitiFact have also been scoring the presidential candidates. What they found is that 76% of the statements they rated by Trump were false in some degree. That includes twenty-four statements they called “Pants on Fire” lies. Only three, out of 134 of Trump’s statements, were rated as true.
Hillary Clinton’s score, on the other hand, was the mirror opposite of Trump’s. She had 71% of her statements rated as true. So the hypocrisy of Trump is not incidental. It’s delusional. Clinton, whatever her faults, is far and away more honest than Trump. But that doesn’t stop Trump from arbitrarily slandering her. In fact, it’s perfectly in character for Trump to lie about the honesty of others.
For good measure, Trump added another slight to Clinton in the same tweet saying that she is “one of the all time great enablers.” That is a thinly disguised reference he has been using to try to reignite the Bill Clinton sex scandals of the nineties. Beside that being a lame overreach into past irrelevancies, it is also a dangerous path to tread for a man who wants to bang his own daughter.

Bang his own daughter, cheated on all his wives (I thought the GOP was all about ‘family values?’) lies about his business savvy, hires illegals while trumpeting that he will deport them all, knows full well his WALL will never be built, knows nothing about the working poor, nor does he care. His campaign is built on lies, bumper sticker slogans, and finger pointing. Hillary will absolutely demolish him at their first debate, after which he’ll go whining to Fox about how mean everyone is being to him. Again. Still. Such a charming, intelligent man-no that would be President Obama. Trump is good for one thing-he’s brought the true intent of the GOP out into the daylight, and even Republicans don;t like what they are.
Yep. Tonight at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner Obama thanked Reince Priebus for the job he was doing as RNC chair and told him to keep up the good work. 😀
This after he very loudly condemns the RNC for being unfair to him and working “illegally” to prevent his nomination? Seriously, what will it take for the TeaGOP to fully abandon this creature? The man has no self control and will say anything he wants at the top of his voice, regardless of whether it contradicts something he just said five minutes earlier. I kind of think even this insult would finally be enough to rile the base to publicly speak against him.
Of course, the alternative is Canadian citizen Ted Cruz, who is scarcely any better…
As bad as Trump may be, he’s no where near as bad as Cruz and probably a lateral move from Mitt Romney. Corporate raiders are not necessarily more capable of governing than reality show stars.

Well, what else would you expect from this orange sh–stain?
Meanwhile, The Drumpf is discoursing again:
“We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country. And that’s what they’re doing. It’s the greatest theft in the history of the world.” Donald Trump
Creature of hate. Apparently, The Drumpf has yet again forgotten that he gets his clothes made in China. And if he’s talking theft (and rape, really), I kinda think the stealing of the land that once belonged to Native Americans would be a far greater crime, but then that’s just me.
