Thanks Ink, couldn't find it on Youtube.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I can go one way because I voted for that party last election or I can go the other way because I'm leaning towards one of their candidates for this election.

Or maybe SAND SAND SAND.

Hopefully not BARK BARK BARK.
Not a winner anymore.

Okay, watched the video and it was realy good.  It hit a lot of the points I've been bringing up elsewhere.  Don't like the Republicans?  That's fine.  But at least you know where they are on the issues.  This is serious, there's a lot more at stake here than stupid internet jokes.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I felt like a lot of what he was saying was weak or superficial.

You're not wrong, the monkey with the banana, gotrump.com, and the Drumpf stuff was weak.  But the man has advocated for war crimes.  Even if it's off the cuff bluster that he doesn't believe, this is dangerous and unacceptable talk.

How is $17.50 per hat being sold at cost, pre-shipping? That's ridiculous.

They're trying to play him at his own game I guess.

Pretty much every criticism Trump levels against his opponents is weak and superficial.

Right, hence the constantly bringing up the short fingers thing.

This talk of his didn't bother me that much. That's why a President has generals, lawyers, and political scientists on staff. Even the "kill their families" thing seems like something a fair number of people might suggest in such a position, and something that has probably been brought up and shot down behind closed doors before in the offices of many different heads of state.

But it creates a feedback effect.

Politicians say outrageous stuff, people like it, they vote for the outrageous people, more outrageous stuff gets said, public opinion shifts, outrageous stuff becomes more and more acceptable. It happens pretty fast as well.

Maybe! Probably not though.

I don't think the slope is that slippery. I think the establishment is scared. Which makes me feel better. When Trump wins, he won't be allowed to do stupid, insane stuff. Moreover, he won't try to do those things because things like that are bad for business.

I love this line now that Trump didn't denounce a KKK leader.

They keep saying "well Trump knew his name before, why doesn't he remember him now?", and then they cite this time SIXTEEN YEARS AGO when he said the guy was a dork. The interview where this is all coming from is also funny as hell. The guy asked Trump the same question three times over the interview until Trump finally said something they thought they could latch onto. HAH OKAY

So you're telling me that now after years of not trying at all, the media are going to dig and do their due diligence in getting the facts about Trump to stop him. lolololololol

The media are trying so hard to take this guy down, it's hilarious. Keep trying. This week's attack is pretty WEAK. And someone pack Romney up and wheel him back home. He showed up again this week with a new problem with Trump because the last one he tried to put out there didn't work. GO HOME MITT. YOUR PARTY IS GOING TO DIE, SHILL.

When Reagan said that it was clearly a joke and even then was a bad one and should have been left unspoken. At least that is my opinion. It was not like his statement was not controversial.
