Can't explain it either.

However that doesn't accurately reflect what Trump has been preaching to them this election cycle.

It is however part of what he has be preaching.

I'd really love some sort of source on Trump saying the rich should get richer.

He wants lower taxes overall, yes, but I should think his policy of not allowing the current byzantine network of tax loopholes and special interest exceptions to continue would make the wealthy less money, all told.

I'm still so far in denial I still think Sanders will be our next president
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Right, Trump supporters aren't routinely assaulting people they disagree with, only occasionally.

But equivalence wasn't my point.  I was talking about why, as Pat asked, the recent riots and attacks on Trump supporters aren't getting the public's attention to the degree he thinks it should.  And my point was that each story about violence at a Trump event, no matter who was at fault, makes it less attention grabbing when there is violence at a Trump event.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Woah, hey, I voted for Bernie too, but we can't just up and move to another country if he doesn't win.

We need to stay here and complain uselessly about whoever becomes president in his place.
America needs us now more than ever.

To stand in the parking lot of a Wegman's.

And tell the guy who puts away shopping carts.

How great it could have been.

After we mistake his nod at our defunct campaign T-shirt as an invitation.

For a twelve minute political rant.

It's the American tradition.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

The tax reforms he promotes, despite his rhetoric, would benefit the rich more. As such I feel is a pro rich policy.

He's gonna keep doing speeches and gathering crowds after the convention as well. Wait for it.

There's still a chance. Even if his negative ratings are higher than Hillary.

Sorry Brandon.
I was joking around.
I still do want him to win.

You mean Trump saying the judge in the Trump U case is biased against him and shouldn't decide the case because he has Mexican heritage?  If it was anyone else, definitely.  But it's Trump, so I have no idea.

Yes, that is the one where it says he will be closing tax loopholes and special interest exceptions.

I'm really unclear as to how that benefits the wealthy, who are known to use those things to not pay very much tax at all. This is part of why the GOP establishment does not like him.

Honestly, as a liberal, I'd prefer higher taxes. But closing those loopholes is important. We can raise taxes later.
