Trump the Sharks Day Open Thread

Trump the Shark J

It’s officially March Madness and the SEC Primary is today! 12 states and American Samoa will vote. Factoid: American Samoa has lost 1,000 people since the 2010 census.

We’ll see what all of this #Swinging4TheFences has accomplished, and who will be swimming with the fishes when it’s all said and done. You know what they’re going to say if when he sweeps.

It’s just the South Racistlandia! He can’t win anywhere else!

There will be more melons exploding today than at a live Gallagher show. Have fun!

This is an open thread.

I see you shiver with….antici…

    Nice Photoshop!

    • I can’t take cred. I stole if from a stupid leftist who had kept the “Jaws” name at the top. I suppose the idea is that Trump is coming for your women or something.

      I just replaced the word Jaws with Trump. Pwned!

  2. votermom says:

    The fear, desperation, and downright meltdowns among our “betters” is a wonder to behold.

  3. Somebody says:

    Well if little Marco can pull off a win in American Samoa the talking heads will probably be telling us what a bellweather American Samoa is. Otherwise 3rd is the new 1st, unless of course Marco takes second in which case he’s the king of the world!

    • leslie says:

      I bow to your prognosticative skills… 🙂

      • Somebody says:

        I’ve gone back and looked at the records and I can see Karl’s whiteboard in my head already!! Why on the republican side American Samoa has an amazing track record! They truly are a bellweather of eventual republican nominees…..dems not so much.

        Oh did I mention it’s a closed caucus? Generally held at a restaurant 40 to 70 people participating……….but hey get your white board ready Karl.

    Want to know how Trump would run the White House? Look no further than Mar A Lago. Nice article, beautiful pictures, and insight as to what kind of boss he is.

    • Somebody says:

      Also apparently filled with foreign workers……..I can see the ads now, Trump the first POTUS to outsource the US government……..but wait perhaps he’ll find a job for Bibi?

      • Venus says:

        No — temporary H2B visa workers during the high season — they’re here legally, following the laws Congress (which includes Cruz and Rubio) created.

        Also, Rubio and Cruz are responsible for pushing increases to the H1B visa program, which led to Disney laying off American workers (i.e., people who actually already had jobs there) for cheaper foreign workers.

        • Somebody says:

          I know and I can’t understand for the life of me why Trump doesn’t go in for the kill. That one issue alone sinks both of them, no matter their claims about the border or illegals. It shows that they will bow to their paymasters and continue to import cheap labor in some form. A couple of the laid off Disney workers have endorsed Trump and he should use them in some ads and knock off Rubio and Cruz with one shot.

          I’ve heard rumors though that Trump has hired H1B as well as H2B, so I’m thinking that is why he leaves that issue alone.

          • Swannie says:

            Ocean City Maryland does that every year. The local seasonal businesses hire thousands of kids from all over the world, because they can’t find enough American kids to work all summer, and for the wages they offer.

          • Venus says:

            He doesn’t make the laws though –as a business man he just follows them (ie he plays the hand he’s dealt). Rubio and Cruz are the ones who made them.

    • elliesmom says:

      He’s going to clean up in MA today. Those folks didn’t leave the Democratic Party to vote for Crubio. The numbers I’m interested in seeing is the relative turnout. I don’t have a clue how the Democratic primary will pan out there, but the level of enthusiasm on both sides will be a window into how a Trump candidacy will play out in the fall. While a lot of Republicans are saying they won’t vote for Trump, I believe a lot of them would eventually come around like most of the PUMAs did. But the 20,000 new un-Democrats will have no real ties to the GOP. Give them someone other than Trump, and there’s no real telling where they’ll go. For myself, if the GOP runs Rubio, and the Democrats run Hillary, I’d probably vote for Hillary. They’d both be disasters, but I could at least see a woman president before I died if she won. The problem with counting on independents to win, and both sides have to, is if you don’t give them the candidate they want, there’s nothing you can shame them with to get their vote.

    Latest Texas Poll:

    • Somebody says:

      Well we’ll see when the results come in tonight how accurate the poll is. The election results are the ultimate poll!

    • Lulu says:

      The private polling will be MUCHO worser. I think all those elected official fart-heads and preachers in Texas endorsing him may have done him in. This is the oppositional defiance disorder election. If official officialdom likes him so much he can’t be much of a rebel can he?

      • Myiq2xu says:

        The GOPe should have dumped Marco and very publicly announced that “Trump is our guy!” and reminded people of how much they hated Ted.

        Then the Rebel Alliance would have shifted to Cruz.

        “Oh, please, what ever you do, don’t throw me in the briar patch!”

        • Somebody says:

          Yep, Cruz’s numbers would have shot up like a rocket.

          The briar patch thing is the same reason Rubio is the candidate the Clinton camp fears the most…….oh sure.

    • Dora says:

    • Cruz jumping on the totally fake, ginned up, “OMG Trump’s a veritable grand wizard of the KKK!” bandwagon lost him votes in TX.

      • Somebody says:

        He jumped on that bandwagon too?? I had to unplug so I’ve missed whatever happened most of yesterday. That is really disappointing, I like Cruz. I wouldn’t have expected him to jump on a made up media narrative. In fact I would have expected the opposite. Whatever bad blood there is between Cruz and Trump seems to be genuine which sucks because they would have made a DYNAMIC ticket.

        BTW today I was supposed to step down to the lowest level nicotine patch. Thank GOD I found an old box of step 2 in the back of the cabinet from when I quit before and they’re good until May! Unfortunately it is only half a box and not enough to get me through the primary here in FL. I’m thinking I may need to buy another box, LOL!

        I feel like the guy in the movie Airplane……I picked a bad time to quit smoking.

  8. Myiq2xu says:

    On Face the Nation this Sunday, I attempted to explain the 2016 cycle in 40 seconds. Pull back from the close ups on Donald J. Trump’s tweets, and the political realignment we are experiencing becomes obvious and impossible to ignore. The post-Cold War left-right politics of the nation have been breaking down in slow motion for two decades. They are now being replaced by a different type of inside-outside politics.

    The Trump phenomenon is neither a disease nor a symptom – he is instead the beta-test of a cure that the American people are trying out. It won’t work. But this is where our politics are going: working and middle class Americans are reasserting themselves against a political and cultural establishment that has become completely discredited over time and due to their own actions.


    If you had said a year ago that the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for president was endorsed in the same weekend by Jeff Sessions and Chris Christie, it would sound like a big tent kind of candidate, wouldn’t it? Well, the Republican Party is a big tent party, and it is adapting to be a bigger tent – encompassing supporters of Paul Ryan and of Donald Trump.

    This is not a temporary adjustment. It is a new reality, as Angelo Codevilla writes today. “America is now ruled by a uniformly educated class of persons that occupies the commanding heights of bureaucracy, of the judiciary, education, the media, and of large corporations, and that wields political power through the Democratic Party. Its control of access to prestige, power, privilege, and wealth exerts a gravitational pull that has made the Republican Party’s elites into its satellites.

    “This class’s fatal feature is its belief that ordinary Americans are a lesser intellectual and social breed. Its increasing self-absorption, its growing contempt for whoever won’t bow to it, its dependence for votes on sectors of society whose grievances it stokes, have led it to break the most basic rule of republican life: deeming its opposition illegitimate.”

    Democrats and Republicans who still think that this is a phase – a fever they just need to wait out before a return to normalcy – are utterly delusional. They keep talking about voters “waking up” to realize that Trump is a bad choice – but the whole reason Trump is the choice is because voters believe they have woken up to the truth about the American leadership class. The old order is breaking down, thanks to Iraq. Katrina. The financial crisis. The failed stimulus. Obamacare’s launch. The Tea Party. Occupy Wall Street. Sanders. Trump. The American people are trying to find a new way, and they are looking for outsiders to lead them through the wasteland.

    To the establishment, this breakdown looks like chaos. It looks like savagery. It looks like a man with a flamethrowing guitar playing death metal going a hundred miles an hour down Fury Road. But to the American people, it looks like democracy. Something new will replace the old order, and there are a host of smart, young leaders on all sides who must prove they have the capability to figure out how to create or retrofit institutions that can represent and channel this new energy.

    • Somebody says:

      I’m not an O’Reilly fan, but me thinks O’Reilly for whatever reason secretly wants Trump. He hasn’t been nearly as tough on him as others in the media. He does his adult in the room, I’m the smartest guy ever thing sometimes and refutes Trump a bit…..but never really lands any hard punches. I think he does enough to keep his bosses off his back.

      • Swannie says:

        I personally think O’ Reilly has his own ratings in mind (vs say Megyn Kelly who stole quite a bit of his thunder) but he has seemed to present a less biased approach. Megan Kelly just oozes DTDS Donald Trump Derangement Syndrome.

  10. DeniseVB says:

    Only in Obama’s world, the battering ram is back😛

    • taw46 says:

      I fear for Europe, it is getting so ugly there. Meanwhile, the people smugglers continue to make millions off that invasion.

    • Jadzia says:

      There’s been some litigation in the news here this week about clearing out a large swath of the camp in Calais (that’s the camp in Western France that some have tried to use as a jump-off point to surge through the Chunnel). The media here is relatively migrant-friendly (somewhat less so than in the States), so I was surprised that in the course of a long piece about what is going on in the camp, I saw NOT ONE WOMAN. NOT ONE CHILD. The journalist was walking through the camp past people’s shelters and clotheslines. NO WOMEN’S OR CHILDREN’S CLOTHES ON THE LINES. And all the men? Young.

      How was this not an invasion?

  11. votermom says:

    I hate that it’s free🙂 coz amazon dings me unless I get an equal number of paid kindle downloads this month but this is a great book so get it anyway.

  12. Myiq2xu says:

    All those people cheering for Rubio to make fun of Trump don’t understand the power dynamic.

    Marco is establishment. He is one of the cool kids. He’s one of THEM.

    The cool kids call Trump a “Short-fingered Vulgarian.” He isn’t one of THEM. He’s one of US – the uncool kids.

    When Trump attacks Jeb or Rubio he’s attacking one of THEM.

    When they attack Trump they are attacking one of US.

    Identity trumps logic, every damn time.

  13. Myiq2xu says:

    I am going to try to be more polite and professional in my online interactions:

  14. Somebody says:

    Apparently Rick Scott current Governor of Florida is going to endorse Trump today. I’m not sure if that is what his press conference is about at 9pm tonight.

    I don’t think this is a good endorsement for Trump and certainly not one that is press conference worthy. Rick Scott is not very well liked here in Florida. His endorsement will NOT attract Trump voters and might alienate some. Scott is only popular with establishment type republicans and not all of them.

    • driguana says:

      You’re absolutely right. And especially right now with all the bad water releases happening from Port St. Lucie all the way down to here in Delray Beach that he is being accused of, the timing couldn’t be worse.

  15. What did I tell you? Why do you think they went over-the-top KKK on Trump?

    • Somebody says:

      Yep you called the ball!!

    • taw46 says:

      I heard Chuck Todd say that on MJ today. Funny, that little fact just now coming out. You were right.

      • Getting a little bit better percentage of the black vote is like the holy grail for GOP, I was told for years. Gee, why weren’t they all shouting from the rooftops if their polling was showing Trump did that?

        “Yeah, but not by a guy we can’t control!”

  16. As I said yesterday, Trump may or may not be able to win the whole shebang. But for today, I’m going to enjoy watching the Great Vulgarian get shoved right down the maw of Colossal Smug.

  18. Dora says:

    Press Conference already set for 9:00 PM.

    But the results won’t all be in by then.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s a weird time while the polls are closing in the mtn and central time zones, people who care about stuff like this will be glued to the returns.

  19. Dora says:

    Wow! This is a surprise. Me thinks Cruz might be a wee bit upset. 🙂

    The Dallas Morning News recommends Kasich and Clinton for the 2016 presidential race

  20. Aaaaand, the GOP smart set followers are now ridiculing/shaming black Trump supporters. Lovely.

    • Somebody says:

      OMG make it stop, WTF is wrong with these people?

      • Anthony says:

        The GOP is taking a page from the Dems 2008 playbook. What they don’t understand is that after 8 years of hectoring by SJWs, the race card has maxed out its credit allowance. And to make matters worse for them, its not renewable after November. I’ve begun responding to race baiters by posting “Your race card has been declined. Please use any firing brain cells you may have left”

        • leslie says:

          Oh, Anthony, I LOVE it. I’m gonna use whenever I can. ❤

        • DeniseVB says:

          😀 I got caught up in a nest of #NeverTrump yesterday just by commenting to one, nasty comments and r/t’s of the nasty comments with @blogho . It got worse when I said they weren’t going to change minds that way, then more nasty r/t’s. The HateTwitter is strong with that #NeverTrump gang of horribles.

  23. Another good piece on the why of the Trumpening. Money quote:

    “But I do not see how things can go on as they are now. I do not see how you can ask the working-class people of this country to support a collection of policies that have failed them over and over and over.”

      • DeniseVB says:

        I constantly think about that stupid pledge.

        • Underwhelmed says:

          And you can bet your last dollar that Trump knew exactly what he was doing. They have given him a weapon. They’ve pulled the mask off their own festering faces, and now the world can see them for what they are. And because they are so entrenched in their own reality, they simply can’t acknowledge what’s happening. They’re like those pilots who flew the plane into the mountain that they could see right in front of them through the cockpit window. There was the mountain, coming up fast, but their flight instruments said it wasn’t there, so …

  24. Myiq2xu says:

    The GOPe fucked up by backing Jeb. No way in hell was the base gonna vote for him, but they poured millions into his campaign anyway.

    The movement conservatives fucked up by failing to reach a consensus on who to support. Their support was divided among several candidates.

    The base backed Trump.

  25. Myiq2xu says:

  26. Dora says:

    Can this be true? I am so confused that my head is spinning.

  27. DeniseVB says:

    2 more votes for Trump here🙂 Why couldn’t every state be this easy, no line mid-morning, in and out. You just ask for the Republican ballot after you sign in and show your i.d. Fill in the little circle with a pen, and push the paper in a machine. No more electronic or punch ballots ?

    • mothy67, says:

      You voted twice? I am impressed!

    • elliesmom says:

      Scantron machines have been around for a long time. They’re an almost perfect way to vote. You get an instant vote count and a paper trail. If the machine jams and eats the ballot, the voter is still standing there, and you can fix it. Maybe that’s why some districts won’t use them? But it’s the way almost all standardized tests are taken. Fill in the bubble with a #2 pencil so it’s also very familiar to anyone who’s been to school in the last 40 years or so.

    • Jadzia says:

      I like the old fashioned ballots the best. Just don’t trust the computers. Here, you get a package of what kind of look like flyers in the mail. When voting day comes, you take them on down to your polling place, where you show your ID and sign in. They give you a little envelope, which you take into the voting booth, and then you pick the flyer of the party that you like and seal it in the envelope and put the envelope in the (transparent) urn. My little area is split between the projects and a pretty bourgeois, conservative neighborhood, so the votes are always close.

  28. lyn says:

    They are still fucking the KKK chicken:

  29. BOOM.

  30. And this is why I’ve seen Bernie supporters (the serious ones just trying to shake something up, not the free shit army) and Trump supporters have some interesting convos:

    • Myiq2xu says:

      Populism and nationalism are both unfairly criticized. Populism is really just another word for democracy. Nationalism is just another word for patriotism.

      • Yep. And either can be taken to brutal extremes. SO?

      • blowme0bama says:

        Saw some asshat on Twitter last night argue that nationalism was “associated with racism” and therefore, Trump’s supporters and Trump were closet racists.

        • mothy67, says:

          My first is my brat, then comes my nephews and nieces, then my family, then people like me- yes I admittedly have a preferance for people like me, like me does not mean color of skin it means common values, then my country. I do not give a shit about the faux BLM movement. I have black cousins. I do not look at AJ who is 9 and see a half black kid. I see a spoiled brat. Newsflash I see all kids as spoiled brats. I do not need a safe place when someone uses an un pc term. N word C word F word. Really I am not going to fall apart because someone calls me a f a g. I would love to hang out with Steve Harvey not because he is black, but because he is funny.

          • mothy, you would likely really enjoy Nero (Milo Yiannopoolos – a Breitbart London writer who is flaming).

            He’s in the middle of his ‘DANGEROUS FAGGOT TOUR” on college campuses, talking about free speech, the hysterias surrounding “social justice” and generally wreaking mayhem on stick-up-your-butt politics in general.

          • mothy67, says:

            Been a fan for awhile. I think he’s a lot like Ann Coulter. Who is not shying away from Trump. I was intrigued as Trump fever spread and fox declared war. Her visibility is dependent on fox but she stuck with him. I used to really enjoy The Five but Dana Perino flipped her lid with her !Yeb¡ Fan girl spiel. I don’t agree with everything she says but I love the fact she pulls no punches. I have never understood idolatry. . I read some Hillary supporters from 2008 and in 2016 they express blind adoration. My largest investment in my entire life is the brat. I will be content if she makes good decisions. Yes I want her to have a rewarding career. Maybe even go on a date some time mid forties kidding I will have to accept she’ll grow up. Hilary rodham clinto and lena done him are not women I want her to emulate. I look at both and ponder at what cost. I hope to be proud of who she is not what she does. That she may know internal peace. Life is always going to be unfair and I believe in righteous indignation but not the hypocrisy of SJWs. They act like before they were birthed the world was covered in darkness. They are obnoxious. Like Maria Farts saying ISIS decapitates children because they do not have good jobs. To be cliche I do not see how fashion gays are not offended by the dim party. Who wears yellow?

  31. DeniseVB says:

    Ben Shapiro wrote this in 2011. He wasn’t a Romney fan, wanted Trump to run😛

    Happy March!!
    Happy Super TrumpTuesday!!
    I predict that Trump will win at least 8 of the States voting today.
    But I would not be surprised if he
    ‘Runs the table’
    I predict that Hillary will win most of them also.
    However I have some nice fresh eggs ready (just in case) 😀

    Off topic, but why would someone pee in water bottles and keep them. Is it some kind of mental disorder like those people that pull out and eat their own eyebrows. I was walking to the store and this guy was taking out huge bags of garbage. His tenant just disappeared. Seems he left hundreds of bottles of pee. Is it some fotm of hoarding? I have a friend his kid will not go to the bathroom. He actually gets sick because of all the poison. He’s 10 not 3. I would home school and pump him full of lactulose. They act like its because he is super sensitive. No he’s holding on to waste. That gets into blood goes to brain. These are 1% ers that are too thick to concieve whatever emotional issues the kid has cannot be cleared up if he has hepatic encephalopathy. He has a distended belly. Blood is filled with amonia. You aren’t going to fix his head if it is being flooded by toxins. They now think it is all gluten. I kid you not. No your kid has mental health issues fucking deal. Not shitting is a huge sign. They take him to John Hopkins a simple blood panel will show if he has elevated amonia levels. Talk therapy will do nothing if he is permanently high. Nope they think he is just sensitive.

      Duh? Why would lower middle class go and do something as silly as vote for someone reflecting their interests. That talk is just goblygook.

  42. driguana says:

    One thing for certain though, we are seeing the demise of both political parties even though many refuse to see it. But that’s what is happening, in my opinion. The outcome is going to be very interesting and extremely hard to guess. New political parties? A party of moderates? A left wing Democrat Party and moderate Democrat Party? A full bore, right wing Republican Party and a moderate Republican Party? An American Party? A Dance Party? And to think the fuse has been Donald Trump! Who would’ve guessed???

    • There are very few people in this country anymore that fit neatly into the R/D ruts that we’ve all run in for so long. And they’ve decided they want to be heard. It’s going to be chaotic, and full of freaks on the fringes for awhile, but genuine cultural shifts are always that way.

      • Anthony says:

        There was an excellent article written by broken clock (right twice a day) Peggy Noonan. I’ll try to find it and post a link, but essentially she claims that those at the top are protected and those at the bottom are protected. Its the middle and working class, that forks over a chunk of their salary in taxes that is now looking to outsiders for protection. Both parties have taken their tax dollars, social security money and everything else to grease the palms of lobbyists in exchange for passing legislation and getting free gifts for their efforts. The working class (whats left of it) has had enough, and are now ready to take things into their own hands. And I can’t say I’m not among them. As a matter of fact, I find it invigorating.

        Think “Uprising of the Worker Bees”…

  44. catarina says:

    According to MA Secretary William Francis Galvin’s office, 20K DEM voters (!) left their party and went Indie or GOP (so they could be Trolls for Trump.)

    Most of them will go *pouff!* and disappear into thin air when it’s time to vote in the General.
    This is happening in other states, too-not just MA.

    It’s part of the plan to make Trump the nominee, destroy him, and then drag Hillary’s lying ass over the finish line.

    hello to all..
    and can I leave the Ted Cruz sticker on my car a little longer?

      I registered as an R months ago after being I since the travesty of 2008. I will vote Trump in primary and GE.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      8 years ago we heard how lots of Republicans were voting for Obama (Or Hillary, depending who you talked to) in open primaries so he would win the nomination and then they would vote GOP in the general.
