Funny, she's saying what I've been saying about him since the start.

I feel so validated. Cool

The weird bit is the "I respect his supporters so much" and why the fuck she got involved with him in the first place. He was obviously toxic early on in his campaign, and the longer it goes on the more toxic he becomes, his supporters the same. Only *after* she quits the PAC (whatever the fuck that is. American politics is fucked up) does she start listening to what he says? Is this how PR people do their jobs? You're hired by a politician so no matter what foul crap pours out of his mouth you don't think "what an asshole", you just find a way to spin it positive.

Most of the current furor over Trump is fueled by his campaign - he says horrible things which newspapers love to report, that generates angry backlash from the left, then legions of assholes from the right step in and defend the bullshit. It feeds right into the "the left/the news/everyone is persecuting me because I say it how it is" line that Trump is using. Basically the way things are now, everything Trump does generates a feedback loop that amplifies it immensely.
That's exactly my point, though. There is so much crazy and whacky shit that Trump has said that there is no need to lie or fabricate things to make him look bad. All you have to do is report what he says in context because most of the time, even the context doesn't help. It would take the wind right out of his narrative. I like this analogy: Trump supporters are like viruses that have evolved to become immune to the effects of medicine (the media) because the doctors (journalists) kept using the same drugs even though they had been proven to be ineffective. At this point, I don't think most of them care about what any of the media says about him, even if it's true, because many journalists destroyed their own credibility by reporting inaccurately about him.

The good news is that even if Hillary ends up being elected because someone somehow managed to stop Trump, it probably won't change much for the worse. The GOP, which controls both the House and the Senate as of right now, hates Hillary ten times more than they did Obama. I expect there would be yet another eight years of gridlock.

Trump was just endorsed by the National Border Patrol Council. Even the border agents want the wall built because it's a mess down there. I can't wait to hear all of the dirt they have on the current adminstration after Obama leaves office.

I ain't a member of the National Border Council union representation. But I am a member of AFGE. Would you like to dick with us or otherwise instruct us as to what is best for us? .... you got no fucking clue.

AFGE endorsed Hillary Clinton. And Obama before her. They support the big government candidates that will protect their "good enough for government work" lazy asses. (Not all, but I'm sure you know the government employees I'm talking about)

“We think it is that important: if we do not secure our borders, American communities will continue to suffer at the hands of gangs, cartels and violent criminals preying on the innocent. The lives and security of the American people are at stake, and the National Border Patrol Council will not sit on the sidelines.” -NBPC statement

Politics is prostitution in a very real sense.

You're right -- courtesans get fucked, but politicians do the fucking.

I stand corrected.
