Protesters With Pocket Constitutions Thrown Out Of Trump Rally

Share
Emperor Trump, Conspiracy theorist in chief

It seems a list is quickly building as to what can get you summarily ejected from a Trump rally. On last count, Trump couldn’t stand the following at his events: Muslims, the press, and babies. Now, Trump’s added on to his persona non grata list: protesters holding Constitutions.

On Thursday, several protesters attended a Trump rally in Maine. Rather than picketing or overtly opposing Trump’s candidacy, they chose to stand up and silently display pocket-sized copies of the Constitution of the United States.

The protesters were referencing the man who may end up causing Trump’s downfall. At the Democratic National Convention last week, Khizr Khan, the father of a slain Muslim-American soldier, pulled a pocket Constitution out during his speech and openly asked Trump whether he had ever read the document himself.

The protesters in Maine were immediately thrown out of the rally by Trump campaign staff, and faced a booing crowd on their way out.

The pocket Constitutions held by the protesters were issued by the ACLU and they’ve have seen a dramatic increase in sales in the days following Khan’s speech. Although it was unclear whether the protesters were actually affiliated with the ACLU, the organization Tweeted out its support:

    People were actually screaming “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” at people silently holding constitutions who were being escorted out of a presidential candidate’s rally. Who’s side are you Trump voters on? Are you even American anymore? Or are you hoping Trump will fly all of you to a private island so you can start your own nation and make your own constitution with no first amendment?

      But it wasnt about the Constitution it was about supporting Khan–who despises the Constitution and asks that Sharia law lead the country.

      1. Eleanore Whitaker August 5, 2016

        It IS about the US Constitution, moron. All Americans rely on the US Constitution to keep our society lawful and orderly. Not mentally deranged like you right wing antisocial has beens.

        Khan is a US citizen. You aren’t. You can keep up your divisive BS but the only ones it impresses are nuts like you. Get professional help dirtbag.

      2. Jon August 5, 2016

        Khan wasn’t there was he? Copies of The Constitution of he United States of America and people who believe in it and respect it were there. Removing all the people and their pernicious copies of the Constitution was one alternative to get the document out of the Trump Rally. Actually I am surprised that they didn’t confiscate every copy of it and burn them. Same result.

        1. Quoting an academic paper from before someone moved to America to prove they’re Unamerican is absolutely absurd.
        2. You want us to believe none of those quotes are taken out of context, if they even exist. And most of the quotes are by the reviewed author, not Mr. Khan.
        3. Most of that article you posted has been debunked many times, including by snopes.

    “The protesters were referencing the man who may end up causing Trump’s downfall”, give me a break, he is not going to cause Trump’s downfall! Mr Khan was out of line with his insults toward Donald Trump. I was appalled at his hatefulness toward Trump who has done nothing against this man or his family. If he did not agree with Trump’s plan to carefully screen those wanting to immigrate to the US in order to protect the country he should have said so instead of acting like Trump was the cause of his son’s death. It was Hillary who did not come to the defense of our own at Benghazi, she has blood on her hands. I will say it how it really is….Trump has WAY more respectful of our military than Hillary ever has and no amount of pretending from us Democrats will change the truth. We have had 8 years to do wonderful thing for this country but it has been squandered. Can we forgive Obama for going to the middle east right after being elected and telling the world how terrible we were, yikes, I cried. Hillary has a record and a history and it will follow her for the rest of her life. She and her husband are beholden to many, at least Trump can’t be bought. The more I watch, the more I hear, the more I may consider voting for Trump.

    Hillary needs to stop hiding and give a press conference, it’s been more than 8 months now and she doesn’t want to answer questions but we already know she is a liar, a real Jezebel.

      I can only assume from your totally misguided rhetoric that you’re a Trump supporter who has been brainwashed by the lies of Faux News.

      Mr. Khan was not accusing Trump of being responsible for his son’s death – he was calling Trump out for his constant hate rhetoric against virtually every ethnic group that is not like what Trump thinks constitutes a white America. Constantly spewing terribly misguided hate against especially Mexicans and Muslims, two groups of people who do far more for America than Donald Trump has ever dreamed of doing.

      If America actually followed Trump’s hate rhetoric and deported a sizeable portion of immigrants, including illegals, the American economy would collapse as it’s these immigrants that are actually the driving force of a number of major sectors of our economy like farming, commercial and residential construction and travel especially; and immigrants including illegals run more than 35% of America’s small businesses.

      And because you’ve been brainwashed by Faux News, you’re totally off base on Hillary Clinton being responsible for anything. Only the totally clueless actually believe that when Hillary was woken up in the middle of the night, that there was anything should could have done that would have made any difference whatsoever in Benghazi: and even the right-wing biased Congressional investigators ended up concluding that nothing anyone could have done would have prevented the loss of those 4 people in Benghazi.

      And secondly, security for Benghazi WAS NOT EVEN HILLARY’S RESPONSIBILITY!! Benghazi was a CIA detachment which Ambassador Stevens was using to do consulate work AS A COVER FOR THE CIA OPERATION.

      So responsibility for providing defense for the Benghazi CIA office was the responsibility of the Defense Department. And the fact is, that Ambassador Stevens had twice been offered enhanced security just weeks before the Benghazi attack, and actually said the office DIDN’T NEED IT. And that when he had determined a need, he would let the Embassy in Cairo know – which he never did.

      So my recommendation would be – stop watching/listening to the Faux News propaganda machine which has even admitted that it lied about there even being a stand down order AS NO STAND DOWN ORDER WAS EVER GIVEN – IT WAS A FAUX NEWS LIE!!! And Faux News facts have been proven to be lies more than 60% of the time.

      So it’s time for people like you to wake up to you being brainwashed!!!!

      1. idamag August 5, 2016

        There are a certain type of person Trump appeals to. Every time he made an ugly biases statement, his poll numbers went up. Trump is who they are.

    2. Independent1 August 5, 2016

      If you’re asking Clinton to hold a press conference, why aren’t you asking Trump to divulge several years of his tax returns?? Oh! I see, it’s because you’re nothing but a total partisan nitwit – you don’t really care about getting to the truth – you’re just one more right-wing nut case who chooses to look past all the lies and disastrous results that have occurred under GOP administrations – so you can work to get another GOP president who like virtually every one of them since Teddy Roosevelt has managed to screw up America in one way or another.

      And since you seem to be so concerned about the blood of 4 Americans under Obama, who were you whining to when 70 people on average died in 10 average deadly consulate/embassy attacks under Reagan and the 2 Bushes??? And how about the 3,000 who died in the most disastrous attack ever on American soil??? Were you whining then too?? LOSER!!!!

        2. dpaano August 5, 2016

          Yeah, it’s pretty difficult to try to educate someone who doesn’t care to be educated! They’ve been brainwashed, as I’ve said SOOO many times, and they will not believe facts even when they are spread out for them! I just block them and ignore them after awhile….it’s a waste of my time to try to knock sense into them.

      2. EvenstarMtl August 5, 2016

        First of all I “was” a Bernie supporter.
        Secondly, we already know that Trump is a wealthy man and proud of it, who cares what is in his tax return. As long as he files and pays his due taxes there is nothing to say in this regard about any of the candidates.
        Thirdly, Trump has nothing to do with Bush, Reagan or any other politician and their past. Which is why people are giving him a second look. He may just be the breath of fresh air we need. While Clinton’s record is very important because she wants to be president…she had bad judgment and doesn’t care about anyone but herself. Look what she did to Bernie Sanders!

        It’s time that Americans stop being beholden to a party and instead vote for the good of the people.

        1. Siegfried Heydrich August 5, 2016

          Bernie supporter . . . OMG, that’s really rich. Seriously, you silly-ass false flag trolls are just uproariously funny sometimes

        2. dpaano August 5, 2016

          From what I understand, he hasn’t paid taxes in years and that’s why he’s being audited! Second of all, he pays NO taxes because he has high-paid accountants who do his taxes and are aware of every little loophole they can use! If you think he’s a “breath of fresh air,” child, you need to get yourself a gas mask!! And, you can be sure that we WILL be voting for the good of the people and that WON’T be for Trump!

        3. Independent1 August 6, 2016

          Exactly what did Hillary do to Bernie Sanders other than beat him by more than 3 million votes?? Hillary didn’t spend weeks spewing lies and distortions of reality like Bernie did in making TOTALLY UNWARRANTED personal attacks; by claiming Hillary wasn’t qualified to be president!! When, in fact, Hillary is without question THE MOST QUALIFIED person to ever run for the presidency!!

          No person that’s ever run for the presidency with the broad range of political experience that Hillary has. Unlike Bernie, whose experience especially in foreign affairs IS SEVERELY LACKING, and whose temperament (shouting at everyone) makes him TOTALLY UNFIT TO BE PRESIDENT!!

          And unlike Bernie, Hillary ACTUALLY WON MOST OF THE PRIMARIES IN STATES THAT RAN PRIMARIES!! Unlike Bernie, whose majority wins were in states which ran caucuses (WHICH SHOULD BE BANNED) where rarely more than 1-2% of the electorate showed up and therefore whose wins WERE CLEARLY NOT REPRESENTATIVE OF THE STATES ELECTORATE!!

          And most of the caucus states Bernie won were RED STATES OR PURPLE STATES with lots of Republicans who managed to weadle their way into the caucuses and vote for Bernie KNOWING THAT IN A NATIONAL ELECTION BERNIE COULD BE DESTROYED BECAUSE OF HIS VERY LEFT WING (COMMUNIST) LEANINGS.

        4. Independent1 August 6, 2016

          And by the way, being a Bernie supporter, where do you say Bernie had the right to expect the Democrat party to not favor Hillary, when Hillary has for more than 2 plus decades worked tirelessly, not only for her own campaigning, BUT ALWAYS ALSO working to support downline Democrat candidates!!

          While Bernie over the years HAS NOT ONLY DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THE DEMOCRAT PARTY, HE HAS ACTUALLY ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS WORKED TO SABOTAGE LEGISLATION THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE WANTED TO GET ENACTED!!

          AND AFTER HAVING DONE NOTHING FOR YEARS FOR THE DEMS, HE ACTUALLY HAD THE GALL TO EXPECT EQUAL TREATMENT WITH HILLARY IN A PRIMARY!!! WHY??????

        5. Independent1 August 6, 2016

          “Which is why people are giving him a second look. He may just be the breath of fresh air we need.”

          Breath of fresh air?? Fresh air THAT STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN??

          So the fact that he has A TERRIBLE RECORD AS A BUSINESS MAN, screwing workers, screwing investors, creating businesses that fail right and left and have left thousands poorer than they were and many miserable because he’s forced them to lose countless jobs which paid below poverty wages DOESN’T MATTER??

          And the fact that he’s an OUTRIGHT HATEFUL MISOGYNIST WHO HAS BEEN ACCUSED OF RAPE AND SEXUAL HARASSMENT, DOESN’T MATTER?

          And the fact that he constantly PREMOTES VIOLENCE WITH HIS HATEFUL, RACIST RHETORIC DOESN’T MATTER??

          And the fact that he’s proven should he become president THAT HIS NONSENSICAL FOREIGN POLICY WOULD CREATE HAVOC IN THE WORLD DOESN’T MATTER???

          And the breath of fresh air we need TO DO WHAT?? BRING AMERICA BACK IN TIME BY 150 YEARS AND UNDO EVERY BIT OF PROGRESS AMERICA HAS MADE??? TURN AMERICA INTO NOTHING MORE THAN A WHITE SUPREMACIST HELL!!!!!!

          What kind of nonsensical, hateful and depraved people are even YOU his supporters?

      She spoke to the press today at an NABJ/NAHJ function. Look it up. Although I think you don’t really look up facts because you’re claiming there is “blood on her hands” for Benghazi, when 8 committees and an 11 hour hearing proved otherwise. And your claim of “us Democrats” is laughable. Us Democrats know that the right has invented “scandal” after unproven “scandal,” and now they’re actually using espionage as a tactic to support their joke of a candidate. Sounds like you’re okay with that.

    More evidence of what Donald Trump and his followers consider patriotism. Something is very wrong when a candidate to the presidency of the USA condones the removal of people holding pocketbook copies of the Constitution while chanting USA, USA!
    Considering what happened two weeks ago, when Donald Trump encouraged Russia, our most powerful adversary, to spy on the USA, what happened in Maine is not surprising. What is disturbing is the large number of Americans that continue to support Trump. Do they understand what Trump has been saying? His actions? His record? Or is it that the promise to deport people they hate, and ban those they fear, is such a powerful incentive that they are willing to support and encourage demonstrations of treason to accomplish their innermost wishes?

    1. Box August 5, 2016

      Dominick I know you understand this better than you are saying. The basic thing about Trump is that under Hillary the US moves further into Socialism and people will put up with a lot, even Trump, to ensure that doesnt happen. Everything else is a worthless detail in the end and there are thousands of them to keep our minds spinning. The fight is Socialism vs Capitalism, the haves vs the have-nots, the entitled folk vs the producers, the individualists vs collectivists.

      As far as what people can see, both candidates actions and records do not speak kindly of them and I wish we had a fair fight between more viable candidates. Thats why Gary Johnson is picking up speed as the neutral party. Everything that you say in your post is exactly the same post that conservatives write about Hillary so who is right? Obviously we each think our own candidate is right but that is not the truth.

      Today there was a poll that said 85% of the people believe that the nation will suffer a deep and painful divide if either Hillary or Trump wins. Its not WWIII to worry about but Civil War. If we truly love our country we must not elect either one.

      1. Siegfried Heydrich August 5, 2016

        Right. So you’re saying that if Drumpf loses the election, there’s going to be a civil war. Uh huh. Well, I guess it’s a good thing that Obama’s releasing the non-violent to make room in the for profit prisons for the domestic terrorists who decide to contest the election by force of arms. Saym Box, why don’t you reserve a cell now, and avoid the rush?

      2. Dominick Vila August 5, 2016

        We are not going to have a Civil War, and what is happening has little to do with socialism Vs capitalism. Alas, one of the many accusations directed at Hillary Clinton is that she is in the pockets of Wall Street!
        There are many reasons for the discontent and anger that should be evident to everyone by now.
        In spite of the obvious economic improvements, there are many among us who are convinced that the economy is in shambles. Never mind that in mid 2008, a Republican candidate declared that the U.S. economy was on the verge of collapse, that bankruptcies and foreclosures were at record levels at the time, that an emergency bailout (TARP) was needed to save Wall Street, that we were losing 800,000 jobs a month, that some of our industrial icons (GM and Chrysler) were about to go bankrupt, that deficit spending and accumulation of debt were unsustainable, and that millions of Americans had lost the ability to dream of a better future.
        All that has been left behind. The problem now is not that our economy is weak, and that our trade agreements harm our interests, but that the financial bonanza that results in record profits, a record high DOW Index, and a GDP that is second to none, is not filtering down to the middle class and the poor.

        And that should not be allowed. Individuals who are running for the highest office in the land, should not be able to dictate who can and cannot attend what are clearly political rallies; just like every true citizen has a right to vote – campaign rallies should have to accommodate EVERY CITIZEN!! The candidate SHOULD NOT be able to dictate who can and who cannot attend a political rally. Restricting entrance to a political rally should be a violation of the 1st amendment.

And, the best part, it makes Hillary look even BETTER with every stupid thing that the Trump campaign puts out there…..she’s saving a ton of money on advertising….she’s just letting him keep opening his big mouth and shoving his foot in it!

            Not at all . . . even houseflies serve a valuable ecological function. Drumpf supporters give us all someone to look down on. It’s the same function as Mississippians – everyone can look at them and go ‘well, thank god I don’t live in Mississippi’.

    2. buffalogirl August 5, 2016

      As I recall, the 70-year Communism experiment failed as miserably as “trickle down” economics. Who would, with the exception of a college student studying ancient history, want a book on Communism? Even Russia is no longer Communist, they’re now a kleptocracy. The only practicing Communist state left is North Korea and the world sees how well that’s working for them.

    3. Siegfried Heydrich August 5, 2016

      Communism? Say, grampy, the 1950s called, they’d like their talking point back. Riiiight . . . . ‘communism’ is about as relevant as ‘phlogiston theory’ or ‘lamarkianism’, ‘ or ‘conservatism’. All of these are ideas that failed miserably, and have been tossed aside. This is the 21st century, now. We won the cold war. Get over it.

    It is obvious to anyone who has studied the Constitution that Trump has either never read it or, if he did, he either chooses to disregard it or doesn’t understand it. The fact that Trump supporters booed those who still believe that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land showed their utter contempt for our founding fathers and the great document they drafted and which has served us well.

        I am really sick and tired of people blaming Obama for everything and anything. He is already being touted as one of the best 12 to 15 presidents He is also an expert on our constitution as evidenced by his advanced studies on it. He is also now receiving the highest rating for an outgoing president since Clinton. So wake up and be thankful he became our president for he saved you and me and everyone else from a depression which was awaiting us within 3 or 4 months of his inauguration. And who had put us there? The previous administration so some want to put them back in office? Makes no sense!

          Occupying the white house with dark skin?

    Trump is very ignorant. He wants to lead while not knowing how he has to lead. One has to ask themselves few questions: How can this man lead while he hasn’t taken any interest to read the Constitution which will be his guide to his leadership? How did he prepare himself to join the race, while he can’t provide his Tax Returns? Does he think every voter is stupid and can be lied to? With his temperament, is he the right person to be handed over the nuclear code and we (voters) settle down that we are safe and in good hands of his? Voters, still 3 more months to ponder all these, so you can come up with the right decision.

      I’d be willing to bet money he is not going to debate.

      1. Siegfried Heydrich August 5, 2016

        Dunno . . . on one hand his ego is such that he thinks that he’s going to just insult, dominate, bluff, buster, and bloviate his way through the debate (if there is one, there will be only one). But on the other, his family and ALL of his advisors know what would happen if he actually did debate her. So this is one of those “I guess we’ll see” things. He’ll start positioning himself in the next few days if he’s going to duck out, and I expect ALL of the democrats to just rag him mercilessly about his cowardice.

        Between ducking the debate and refusing to release his tax returns, he’s setting himself up for a real pummeling. I was thinking that the dems need to resurrect Dick Orkin’s classic ‘Chicken Man’ theme for use in their attack ads. It would SERIOUSLY get under Drumpf’s thin skin, as it’s from his time period . . . (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3j7fjzJvnA)

        And, if he does, Hillary will wipe him off the floor! She has more knowledge about how this country runs that he could EVER have!! These debates will only show how ill prepared he is to run this country, but his followers will only find something to blame her for when he shows how uninformed he really is! I’m sure that rather than discuss HOW he’s going to get things done….he’ll spend most of his time talking about himself and how wonderful he is and maligning Clinton. That won’t go over very well with most of the American people…..they are already seeing him for what he is, and it ain’t pretty! Why do you think so many of his own party have ran from him and are actually saying they are going to (1) vote for Hillary; or (2) just not vote at all, especially for him! What’s really funny is that even the Koch Bros. don’t even like him…..what’s that say?

        1. EvenstarMtl August 5, 2016

          Wrong again! He showed up for the other debates, he will show up for Hillary. Haven’t figured Trump out yet, he loves the challenge, he never backs down.

          1. Independent1 August 5, 2016

            He loves the challenge for what?? Telling lies!! Spewing hate rhetoric against any ethnic groups other than the ones he approves of?? Doing nothing but ridiculing even his opposition candidate!! Or spurring his rabid followers into beating up on protestors and throwing them out of his vulgar rallies?? and on and on!!

            What kind of dummkopf are you that believes all the BS you post??

            And if he never backs down, why is he constantly making excuses when he realizes that many of his vulgar, hateful rhetoric has created outrage among even the Republicans???

            Actually declaring at one point that all his nonsensical proposals were nothing but ‘suggestions’!! Like even the building of a wall on our southern border he ended up claiming ‘ was only a suggestion’. If that’s not backing down, what else would you call it???

            What alternate universe are you living in??? Clearly your own fantasy land!!

    Trump….is a very cagey person who knows exactly what he is doing. He makes outrageous comments because he knows that will bag him 500 headlines which money cannot buy. He is a very old hand at this within the business world.

    As a person who developed a super tough skin, he doesnt apologize and just moves to the next headline. The one thing he didnt figure on was that the rest of the world doesnt have a tough skin too. He has been isolated from that and didnt understand we have grown a country of pansies, wusses and pussies. He thought the outrageous comments would slide off the ducks back because we could take it. But in the world of PC, people have learned to tolerate less and less until they are unable to tolerate anything at all and hence the super backlashes. A few decades ago his comments would not at all be considered potent, just regular.

    He comes from the boardroom world and in larger companies and high stakes, people talk to each other in ways that make outsiders blush. They are not cruel people but extremely nasty and rough. Movies always portray boardroom meetings as calm and civil affairs but thats not always true. They can be rough and not for the faint-hearted…or pussies. Whenever Trump speaks he reminds me of a boardroom meeting that he is in the middle of conducting and such listeners would not even blink at his words.

    Does that mean he isnt presidential? Well….he isnt calm, careful and diplomatic and PC, thats sure, but it doesnt make him less capable. He just has to learn and the world will teach him whether he likes it or not. People forget that at the start of this he kept referring to his book as the crusader of solving problems through deal-making. He thinks, rightly or wrongly, that the world of governments is in the end one big boardroom. Is it? But one thing is also sure, people have to drop the “im offended” pretenses, get their skin back, their mojo back and become strong fighters like him. America isnt PC and pussies, its really Donald Trump.

      First of all, Trump is NOT thick skinned…..if he were, he wouldn’t hit the “tweeter” every time someone says something that he doesn’t like! As for the so-called “headlines,” they have been the best advertising for electing Clinton EVER! She doesn’t have to spend her money on advertising….she just lets everyone see how ridiculous Trump is, and she wins more votes!
      As for Americans being pansies, wussies and pussies…..take a look in the mirror, okay? Not sure who exactly you’re talking about since I sincerely doubt you know EVERY ONE in this country.

        I think Box is referring to the childish uproar from the media, political commentators, politicians and Hollywood etc. It’s seems they have the stomach for some real vile stuff as long as it’s what they like but if your world view is different from theirs watch out, they will take your head off. No civility, no exchange of ideas, every word is taken as unacceptable even when there is nothing really bad being said. Where Americans have gone is very disturbing.

    Giving Trump a copy of The Constitution of the United States of America would be like sending me a book written in Chinese. I could probably get someone to interpret it for me. To some the Constitution is like the Bible. They pick something to dwell on and, like the Bible, can be misinterpreted and ignore the rest.

    1. Siegfried Heydrich August 5, 2016

      Actually, it would be like handing him a bible. Yes, he could read it, but the comprehension simply wouldn’t be there. Even if you explained it to him, he still wouldn’t understand because it wasn’t talking about him.

    2. dpaano August 5, 2016

      He’s already said that he doesn’t read books or newspapers and gets most of his information from TV. I think he’s been watching too much of Big Brothers and Survivors…..both good shows to watch, but shows that teach people to lie, cheat, and go behind people’s backs to get their way! Typical!

        Not one thing Trump has ever laid out as something he’d want to have America do, is something any true American would agree with.

        If you disagree with that, please point out to us what hateful things you think Trump has ever said that any honest American should accept.

        1. EvenstarMtl August 5, 2016

          Sure….

          Re-negotiate trade deals that work against the US (even Hillary agrees with this now).
          Secure the border (every country needs to secure their borders). Build a wall if that’s what it takes. In so doing it will make it harder for drug dealers to bring in drugs as well.
          Allow border guards to do their jobs already….
          Deal with illegal immigrants, some of them will make good citizens but they have to come in legally…
          Get rid of sanctuary cities.
          Reform immigration to better screen for possible terrorists.
          Be more aggressive in taking out ISIS and other terrorist groups.
          Re-think America’s relationship in the middle East, Hillary made some terrible decisions in this regard (maybe bad judgment)
          Keep companies from leaving the US for Mexico, China etc by making it more conducive here in the USA..
          Encourage companies to manufacture here in the USA.
          Become energy independent by exploring our own oil.
          Change the way we care for veterans and their needs.
          Increasing the minimum wage.
          Getting rid of Obama Care, my premiums have more than doubled. Or at least allow insurance companies to compete in all the states thereby lowing premiums for Americans
          The education system needs fixing and Trump has addressed this issue as well.
          Stop running up government debt, at this point we may never be able to pay if off, the debt is that high!
          Eventually lower individual taxes.
          Lower corporate taxes, I have my own company and corporate taxes are higher than my friends who run corporations in Canada.
          Provide maternity benefits for new mothers (Ivanka brought this up in her speech and I like it)

          I think there may be more but I am watching Trump speak on CNN so I am a bit distracted.
          Hope the list gives you something to think about.

          1. Independent1 August 5, 2016

            About 40% of what you listed there is a bunch of Trump total BS!! They’re issues that make no sense and would actually harm the U.S. economy like your nonsense about immigrants and Trumps idiotic ‘rethinking of the middle east problem which Trump has absolutely no real clue about).

            About another 40% are things Obama has been trying to get the GOP to focus on for the past 7 years with no success: such as fixing the education system; getting companies to stop leaving the U.S. and to doing more manufacturing – although America manufactures as much stuff today as it has at any time in the past 50 years despite what Trump and others misguidedly say..

            And about 10% are things that would not only destroy America but even cost thousands of people their lives – like repealing Obamacare. Obamacare has already saved over 100,000 Americans their lives and states and hospitals billions; it is creating thousands of jobs and has made dramatic improvements to the U.S. healthcare system over the past 7 years.

            So on balance, what Trump is pushing for would accomplish little to nothing in moving America forward beyond what Obama has already initiated and is already working despite the 24/7 Obstructionism of the party that Trump is running for president under.

            So if any of you Trump idiots think the GOP would support a lot of what Trump is proposing, you’re whistling Dixie. It ain’t going to happen should he by some terrible stroke of luck get elected!!

          2. A. D. Reed August 5, 2016

            Can’t “renegotiate” existing treaties and trade deals without undermining the good name and “full faith and credit” of the U.S. in the world. Abrogate them, maybe, like the Brits with Brexit — but then no-one will sign a new one with us, and especially not with a president who’s made his whole career by breaking deals.
            The border has not been this secure — in terms of the number of immigrants crossing illegally — in more than 30 years. Look it up at ICE.
            Building a wall is a joke. First, the cost would be immense, and
            taxpayers wouldn’t stand for it, and we couldn’t afford it (see below on his fiscal plan). And there’s no need for it, because our border is more secure than it’s been in 30 years.
            Border guards to their jobs; the Congress — which is the only body that can allocate money — refuses to vote more funds for the border patrol.
            “Get rid of sanctuary cities” — how? Bomb them? Level them? Make it illegal for cities and states to pass legislation on their own? This from small-government Republicans!!!!
            “Reform immigration …” The Congress has to pass laws to that effect. They have refused. Meanwhile, would-be immigrants have to wait 2 years for vetting, and not one has come through who is a terrorist. All our terrorists are home-grown.
            “Be more agressive …” How? Doing what? Carpet-bombing? drones? infiltration? He (like you) hasn’t offered one concrete example of what he’d do differently than Obama’s doing.
            “Re-think … the middle East.” He has to think it first, and he couldn’t even point to Libya on a map. Hillary and Obama didn’t get everything right as they tried to deal with the mess left behind by Cheney’s Iraq and Afghanistan wars, but they didn’t mess it up in the first place. Imagining that Trump could do better when he can’t even operate a casino is sixth-grade silly.
            “Keep companies from leaving …” Hillary is pushing to revise the law giving tax benefits to companies that move overseas, penalizing them instead if they take away jobs and hide money elsewhere. Trump has almost all his merchandise made in those overseas companies, and hides whatever money he actually has (far less than he claims) in overseas tax havens. If you believe he will do anything to rein in such, you’ve OD’d.
            We become energy independent by supporting solar, wind, geothermal and tidal energy — renewables that don’t pollute and don’t line the pockets of corporate owners at the expense of the “little people.” Oil is dying; we look to the future.
            He loathes veterans; he laughs at them, and the GOP congress keeps trying to cut the budget for their care. He’s a draft-dodger, and brags that he got a purple heart the easy way: someone gave him a fake one.
            He has said he doesn’t believe there should be any minimum wage, period.
            If Trump said that your premiums have more than doubled, then no wonder you shill for him. I doubt that, though. For the 20 million people who had no coverage before Obamacare, it’s literally a lifesaver. What would he offer instead?
            “The education system …” What’s broken is that the cost of educating our children has doubled over the past 20 years, but the money to pay for it has been cut in many states and stolen from — by taking public tax dollars for private, for-profit “academies”. Yes, the system is broken: the Republicans broke it, and Donald would destroy it completely.
            It’s Republicans that run up government debt unsustainably. Reagan tripled both annual deficits and national debt; Bush I tripled it again because of “no new taxes” to pay for all his war programs. CLINTON eliminated deficits and cut the national debt; BUSH II tripled it in eight years.
            Obama has cut the annual deficit from $1.2 trillion per year under Bush to $350 million — about 2 % of the national GDP.of $18 trillion. I suspect you carry more personal debt on a percentage basis. It’s highly sustainable. The total debt of $19 trillion is a little more than one year’s income. Again, you probably owe more than a year’s income on your house, like most Americans (avg. middle-class income $65,000-$120,000, avg. house debt $175,000).
            Obama lowered individual taxes; what needs to be fixed is the low rates on billionaires, on unearned income, and on inherited wealth.
            Raise corporate taxes, which for 75 years provided 20% to 25% of all US tax collections, and are now down to about 12%,

            Clearly you are distracted, but not from watching Trump on CNN; rather it’s by listening to the stream of angry, false, and bigoted bile that comes out of his mouth every day.

      2. Sand_Cat August 5, 2016

        What brainless insults? Or are they just too deep for you?

      3. A. D. Reed August 5, 2016

        He has no viewpoints. He simply spouts whatever comes into his head at any given moment as the thing that will rile up his crowds. How can one disagree with viewpoints that change from minute to minute?

        Instead, we point out that he has no grounding, no philosophy, no intellectual center, no intellect whatsoever, and certainly no character or temperament. And no viewpoint. Just “me the Donald” all the time.

        To tell the truth, idamag is right: Trump does not read books, he doesn’t read magazines, he doesn’t even read an entire article in a magazine. His attention span is so short he can’t stay on topic for a complete sentence, much less a full thought. That’s not nasty and petty: just an honest, polite assessment.

        1. EvenstarMtl August 5, 2016

          That’s your opinion and it’s likely to be wrong.
          I heard Trump reads everything and loves to study history as well. He is also the author of several books.

          Trump is a graduate of the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in economics. You think he never reads books, how did he get through his higher education???

          Your attempt to make him look uneducated and stupid is stupid in itself.

          1. A. D. Reed August 5, 2016

            Get your facts in order, man. “I heard Trump reads everything” is about as convincing as himself saying “A lot of people are saying the election this fall is going to be rigged. I’ve heard a lot of people saying that.” And it turns out that what he heard was several TV news reporters (“a lot of people”) who were simply quoting HIM saying the election might be rigged!!!! But to him, they are a lot of people and an unimpeachable source.

            Here’s a report from the right-wing, pro-Trump website Newsmax:

            “Trump doesn’t have time to read books. He’s skeptical of experts who write books. He gets most of his information from television.”

            http://www.newsmax.com/Politics/donald-trump-reading-books/2016/07/18/id/739124/

            Furthermore, he didn’t graduate from the Wharton School of Business, which is a renowned graduate school; he got an undergraduate degree from the University of Pennsylvania where he took some undergraduate classes from the Wharton undergraduate program, which is affiliated with Penn. He was never enrolled in Wharton’s prestigious MBA program, though he often pretends that he was, and gullible people like you believe it.

            Repeat after me, a hundred times until you learn the truth: He is NOT a graduate of the Wharton School of Business.

          2. EvenstarMtl August 5, 2016

            FYI, I got the information on his education from Wikipedia, so if you have an issue go change it. Regardless of where he went (I can’t waste precious time on this point as it does not matter), he did go to university which requires a lot of reading and discipline. There was a time when he had more time to read.
            You seem to be missing the point. He obviously doesn’t have time to read “books” recently, he is running for the presidency. I can guarantee you that Hillary isn’t reading any “books” lately either! And….he has written about 18 books!

          3. A.T. August 6, 2016

            Listen to what A.D, Reed said about Trump: here’s even more on how strongly students from Wharton DENOUNCE TRUMP:

            From fortune.com:

            More than 2,000 current students and alumni of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business have condemned Donald Trump in an open letter to the Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee. Under the heading “You Do Not Represent Us,” the signatories to the letter tell Trump that they are “deeply disappointed” in his candidacy.

            “We, proud students, alumni, and faculty of Wharton, are outraged that an affiliation with our school is being used to legitimize prejudice and intolerance,” the letter reads.
            “Although we do not aim to make any political endorsements with this letter, we do express our unequivocal stance against the xenophobia, sexism, racism, and other forms of bigotry that you have actively and implicitly endorsed in your campaign.”

    No surprise. The other day a woman came to the microphone at a Pence rally and announced that she was a Gold Star mom. The crowd applauded and roared approval. Then she asked why Trump would dishonor a Gold Star family like the Khans — and the roar of approval immediately turned to boos and hisses.

    Typical of these people — Trump, his supporters and apologists — that they loudly support the idea of sacrifice, of patriotism, support for veterans, etc. — but when faced with the real thing they turn on it. None of them, or Trump, ever made a sacrifice for the greater good; none of them is a patriot who would pledge life, liberty, or property for their “beloved” country; none of them would vote a dime to improve veterans care or training or housing.

    I have yet to encounter a single Trumpeter who is not an absolute hypocrite, and in as great a state of denial about his or her ignorance and anti-Americanism as Trump himself. Not one.
