Trump said WHAT??

Copy of CLMPHttWoAABq1j

I’m speechless:

YOU could hear how hard it was for Donald Trump to say the words.

“Yeah, it was a mistake,” he said, sounding a bit chastened. “If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t have sent it.”

I was telling him he lost my sister’s vote when he retweeted a seriously unflattering photo of the pretty Heidi Cruz next to a glam shot of his wife, Melania.

He repeated his contention that he didn’t view the Heidi shot “necessarily as negative.” But I stopped him, saying it was clearly meant to be nasty.

Trump also got into his schoolyard excuse of “he did it first” and “that wasn’t nice,” insisting that Ted Cruz wrote the words on the digital ad put up by an anti-Trump group aimed at Utah Mormons; it showed Melania in a 2000 British GQ shot posing provocatively and suggested that it was not First Ladylike. Cruz denies any involvement.

Truth be told, Trump said he “didn’t love the photo” of Melania. “I think she’s taken better pictures,” he said, also protesting: “It wasn’t a nude photo, either. It wasn’t nude!”

It’s ridiculous how many mistakes Trump has made in rapid order to alienate women when he was already on thin ice with them — and this in a year when the Republicans will likely have to run against a woman.

He did a huge favor for Hillary, who had been reeling from losing young women to a 74-year-old guy and from a dearth of feminist excitement. And for Cruz, who started promoting himself as Gloria Steinem, despite his more regressive positions on abortion and other women’s issues.

Wouldn’t it have been better, I asked, if Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski had simply called the reporter Michelle Fields and apologized for yanking her arm?

“You’re right, but from what I understand it wouldn’t have mattered,” Trump said.

Donald Trump admitted he was WRONG???

This must be a sign of the apocalypse.

    I think Mr. Trump admitted he could have been more right.

  3. DandyTIger says:

    Trump has made some massive missteps in the last couple of weeks. He may or may not have won WI anyway, but I don’t think he can win it now. And if that creates some momentum for Cruz, he has no one to blame but himself. Politics is a rough business and not for delicate flowers. Well, except for Obama, the ultimate delegate flower. So these mistakes and how he recovers is a vital test I think. Either he handles it as before and somehow that works. Or he pivots to deal with shifts in the current mood and narratives. Trump has everyone against him because he’s trying to topple the establishment. His approach has worked for him so far. And who knows, maybe he can keep up the brash stuff and still eek out the nomination. But it appears he’s made his road a lot tougher.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Not even if he shot a man just to watch him die …….😉 Topple the establishment, rah!

    • lyn says:

      Cruz has become a blamer like Obama, and I hope that registers with voters. Trump has had a target on his back since the beginning, and he may be recovering from those things he can control this weekend. Trump’s crowds should mean something, and he has a town hall with Greta on Sunday.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Eventually you reach a saturation point where no new information can be processed. It’s like with the Clinton’s and corruption – or Bill with women – there is nothing new that will budge the needle.

      Trump may have reached his saturation point before the campaign even started.

      • lyn says:

        Good point.

      • DandyTIger says:

        That would be extra funny because we’re hearing the Clinton people have been building up their opposition research on Trump where they say 80% of the stuff hasn’t been aired by the GOP yet. Would be funny if they started unloading it in the general and it didn’t have an effect.

            Yeah I forgot to mention sexual harassment, but I kind of think that if that was going to pop out of a cake, it would have already.

    • Venus says:

      Contrary to the current MSM/Never Trump spin — Trump was never doing well in Milwaukee and Madison (the 2 population centers); he only ever was doing well in the 6 rural districts.
      But what the new “Cruz surge” spin is not mentioning is that WI winner take all by district (8 districts, 3 delegates each) and 18 delegates to the overall winner. Now that Cruz is the NeverTrump with the entire WI establishment support (governor, RNC chair and speaker of the house behind him), he should get 24 delegates and Trump should get 18 (the 6 rural districts). That is the big “win” the Never Trumps are talking about — 6 *whole* delegates more to Cruz who is 300+ delegates behind Trump currenty.
      Then, of course, comes NY – 95 delegates/true “winner take all” — which Trump wins and after which Cruz is the one who is mathematically eliminated from getting 1237 delegates.

        • Venus says:

          You’ve already proven you fail at BASIC FUCKING MATH. I’m not explaining it AGAIN.

          • Somebody says:

            NY is by congressional district also. I think there may be a trigger for winner take all if you get above 50% state wide, but I’m not certain. NY is by district with some additional delegates going to the overall state winner though. Trump can still take all the delegates if he plays the map right, like he did in South Carolina.

            You are correct if Trump were to take all the delegates in NY it will put Cruz in a position where it is impossible for him to reach 1237, but honestly it’s already impossible. Don’t forget PA come before NY I think. PA is a screwed up mess because ppl are voting for delegates and they have no idea who those delegates support. Somebody should have been sorting that out already, if I lived in PA I’d be pissed not knowing.

            Speaking of PA I suggested to votermom that she contact the campaign, I wonder if she did and if they gave her any guidance?

            And toots — you started talking to ME — don’t like the way I fucking talk then don’t post “at” me.I certainly wasn’t talking to YOU because I don’t give a fuck about you and your advocacy of neo-con politicians.

    I got something from the County Registrar of Voters today. Apparently they don’t want me showing up in person to vote anymore. I have to vote by mail now.

  5. DandyTIger says:

    Brilliant talk with great Q&A

  6. lyn says:

    A movement may have started. We are Donald Trump. LOL.

  7. DandyTIger says:

    • lyn says:

      Can Trump win fair and square when he has to put up with this garbage? The GOPe is up to no good. Burn the sucker down!

      • elliesmom says:

        If there are no major game changers and either the GOPe puts up a third party candidate or Trump runs 3rd party, Hillary (or another acceptable candidate to most Democrats) wins the election. But Trump beats the establishment Republican. The GOPe is well on the way to political suicide, and there doesn’t seem to be anybody who can talk them down off the ledge. The Democrats got away with what they pulled in 2008 because most people were unaware of what they’d done, and a lot of Hillary’s own supporters who did know, didn’t care. I’m not even sure Hillary cared all that much. This anti-Trump thing, though, is being played out on the nightly news, the morning talk shows, and all over social media. Average Americans have a sense of fair play.

  8. Venus says:

    The NeverTrumps are so upset about Trump’s “tone” — they don’t give a shit about our jobs, though.

    If you missed Stephen Miller (former aide to Sen. Jeff Sessions, now senior policy adviser to Trump) today in Racine, WI, watch — it’s worth the 12 minutes. He takes Cruz and the NeverTrumps to church:

    • Somebody says:

      I’m so glad this speech found its way here. I encourage everyone to listen to it. Seriously take the time. This man for years was Jeff Sessions top aide, he talks specifics about immigration and jobs. It is worth your time.

      Thanks for posting this Angie!

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s all ? Seems like a lot more😉

      Good! Who doesn’t love a good scrum?
      …”To every man upon this earth
      Death cometh soon or late
      and how can man die better
      than facing fearful odds…”
      This is an epic and historical struggle we are in. The last chance to preserve our country and remain sovereign, imho.
      We are facing fearful odds, but winning/victory is still possible, VOTE!
      Thanks for listening.

  9. Venus says:

    • Jadzia says:

      Stop making me like Trump, Angie. It sure is refreshing to hear “give something BACK” instead of “America sucks.”

      • DeniseVB says:

        Trump’s message has always been inspiring to me. Seems to be working since he’s brought out people who hate politics and/or haven’t voted in years, if at all.

  10. DandyTIger says:

    Well isn’t this interesting. The two polls with Cruz up by 10 are wrong. The first we knew was bad because it was super lib and a really small sample size. And the questions were designed to get the response. Then the Fox poll came out and had a similar 10 point lead. Turns now not so fast.

  11. mothy67 says:

    My crud will likely be on the telly tomorrow. Opening day at PNC Park tomorrow. My SIL is a big deal with pharma. They got the best VIP box . My brother took her out to buy new clothes as god knows we can’t have her wear the same thing twice. Seems my sister in laws company was adament about them looking proper. Mccutchen jersey 85 dollars. Mock turtle neck 55. WTF? Old Navy ten dollars. I am so thrilled. I have some organ issues. Not afraid to die but so scared of leaving my baby behind. They gave me two months four years ago. I walked 6.5 miles yesterday. Didn’t even break a sweat. Downtown to my home. I had to walk up a huge hill. No problem. I was on a transplant list. Not my thing. I was 45 then. No way I was taking an organ over a kid. I have rebounded. I only worry about the kid. I think I’m gonna hang out for a few decades, but if I perish my little brother who is 15 years my junior loves the kid. They make together about 225,000. Do not want kids. He is 35 shecis 38. It’s so odd coming from a big family. I grew up taking care of my younger siblings. I could not have walked away from my shaypup. I am not some devine f a g from NYC that raised a throw away child. I just did what was natural. My youngest brother had 7 parents. We all raised him. He knows nothing of sacrifice. Not aware that I paid for his school lunches with my dishwasher paycheck. He grew up with in door plumbing. I think he would die ifche knew we had an outhouse and a bucket. Newspaper for toilet paper. That poor.
    Love my spoiled brat baby brother. He never wants a kid. Being gay I sure as hell never wanted a child. She has changed me in so many ways.
    Pup is almost ten. My brother and his wife are becoming maternal and paternal. I am over joyed. Crud asked me if I felt “slighted” that she and Dan were becoming close. No princess my greatest fear is that I might leave you alone. I did not have afte school activities I went home and took care of my little brothers. I changed Dan’s diapers as I did Shay. 34 years later to see him reach out to her is magnificent. His wife is 6 figure pharma person. She wants no kids. Five years ago very cold to Shay. Now they take archery together. She pays. Baby got her blue belt last month they came, four practice softball games they came. Pup is grand niece, not niece, but I think 10 is doable for them. Who cares they love my brat and she gets opportunity. Seriously she was thrown away. Everyday we read Jane Eyre together. I have Websters and an entymology dictionary on coffee table.WE read and discuss then she can go on minecraft.
    Thanks to anyone and everyone that subscribed to her inane youtube channel. I will not let her show her face but she babbles andcis elated when anyone follows.

  12. mothy67 says:

    I believe in the individual. My brat was sentenced to a bleak life. Welfare daycare. She was done. I saw her because I missed a bus. Fat little arms around my neck the smell of shit. Playpens lined up along the wall. Tha’s what Hillary and deblasio want? I was a self absorbed asshole. Those fat arms clinging to me devastated me. I raised her.
    All it took was one person saying you matter. I was so blessed when I took her on. Imagine a baby in the lefts daycare? What would my baby be. I missed an express bus and got a child. Her mom did nit call her for three years. Her dad is a frequent flyer in jail. Sadly they just live that way. No ambition. No hope. They love Sanders. Pup has never gotten a B. She is head engineer. She is on a math team. She is a very hardworking kid. I picked her up at 6 months from hell. What would she be at 9 if I had not been there. Tyke is profound. I do not stand for poor poor pitiful me. Sucks she does not have mommy and daddy. So what she has a great grandfather on an oxygen tank that coaches her softball team. A greatgrandmother that attends commn core math classes andthen there is me– great gay uncle with a degree in literature. For real brat has been raised by freaks.

      • lyn says:

        Even if Trump doesn’t reach the magic number, he still deserves to be the nominee.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I think if they abuse the Common Core Electoral Math system to jimmy rig the delegates, while keeping idiot Kasich just to peel of the 1237 (no chance of winning that, which sucks), I will be mad. Rubio doesn’t want to give up his delegates, though he’s not running, makes me mad too.

          I’ve seen chatter about showing up in Cleveland to protest if this contested bullsh*t leads to an establishment candidate ticket who haven’t been on the trail beating their brains out.

          That might be fun. Keeping my powder dry for now to see how it all works out. Cleveland is pretty convenient for most of us too😉

    • lyn says:

      Yep. The GOPe is a blamer like Obama and Lyin’ Ted.

  14. Anthony says:

    I for one am glad he admitted he was wrong about tweeting that pic. That move along with the “If I tell the generals what to do, they’re going to do it!” were only 2 of his statements that made me waver about leaning his way.

    I will vigorously defend him against the obvious collusion of the MSM and establishment to eliminate him as adamantly if I would Sanders if he was their target instead; that’s right – Sanders, who is the lowest of the low in my opinion. Undermining democratic principle and imposing the will of the party upon the will of the people is something I will NEVER stand for. That said, I do take issue with some of what Trump has said as well as the manner in which he said it.

    Admitting he was wrong about that only elevates his character in my view. Although professional politicians, talking heads and blind Cruz supporters can’t see the virtue in admitting a mistake and correcting it, I think the majority of Americans can and do. Fuck this. Now its official for me: #Trump2016

    • DeniseVB says:

      As a lifetime military dependent, the “generals” comment doesn’t bother me at all. Military have always been political pawns, but never as bad as Obama’s has used them, and it’s cost lives. And careers of generals who dared question the “stand down” orders for Benghazi.

      I trust Trump will surround himself with very capable civilian and military leaders, and listen to them. He’s not a career politician, he already has power, wealth and an amazing legacy, so I think he WILL put America and her citizens first. Yep, I’m on the crazy #TrumpTrain too, otherwise, nothing will change.

    • CiscoKid says:

      If I may Anthony.
      Trump’s statement about telling the General’s what to do isn’t out of order.
      I remember during the Cuban missile crisis, JFK’s military advisors and Joint Chiefs wanted to bomb and invade Cuba.
      He said no, and worked it the plan for the blockade instead.
      That’s about as accurate as this foggy memory can recall.

      • Anthony says:

        It was something about his tone that pissed me off. Probably some deep, hidden childhood trigger, but I’m not a special snowflake; I’ll get over myself🙂

        • CiscoKid says:

          Trump has to work on his delivery.
          Sometimes I wince when he says something, not so much the content but the way, tone, he says it.
          Maybe he should remember he’s not in the Boardroom when speaking to us.

  15. Anthony says:

    Meanwhile, coming to New York…

    • DeniseVB says:

      LOL, I like Bernie so much better than Hillary, so kinda rooting for him. What really cheers me up after a daily cyber-flogging as a Trump supporter, I wonder how bad the Hillary supporters must feel that’s she’s being seriously challenged by this guy? They’re all feeling the bern😀

      • Anthony says:

        I’m beginning to believe that Bernie “The Human Sponge” Sanders is a ruse to keep the Obama base believing that their votes really matter. In the end, it will go the same way as it did in 2008. On top of that, I have no respect for “The Bernies”, as they are no different than the other professional sponges that occupied college campuses in the 60’s. I loathe him (if that wasn’t clear lol)

        • Somebody says:

          Anthony honey, you need to learn to express yourself…….it’s OK you’re safe here you can open up and tell us how you really feel, LMAO!

            That was me being reserved and discreet… I’ll try to be more direct in the future😀

    Ivana Trump on how she advises Donald ­ and those hands

    • Somebody says:

      I think she’s looking for another 15 minutes of fame. I don’t think for one minute that Trump is calling her before and after every event. It does appear that they’ve buried the hatchet somewhat, but I don’t think they are BFF’s. I know in the article she had to excuse herself to take a supposed call from Donald……her hired help could have just as easily said the Queen of England was on the phone or Obama or Elvis Presley.

      • Anthony says:

        Actually, she’s a very accomplished person in her own right (she was a client of mine for years) and had close contact with him even after the divorce because he stayed present in their children’s lives.

        The NY Post is a rag that likes to stoke the flames. Ivana can hold her own with the best of them (of either gender), and parlayed her 15 minutes of fame into a lifetime of accomplishment from her own hard work.

        • lyn says:


        • DeniseVB says:

          Trump has amicable relationships with his exes and they’ve endorsed him. He always blamed himself for the failed marriages because he was more married to his work. Melania seems to be a good fit because she was already accomplished and independent. She still is.

        • Somebody says:

          Oh I agree with you Ivana is an accomplished woman, sorry if my statement seemed to indicate that. Actually she was successful even before she married Trump, much like his current wife.

          I just don’t believe the story in the Post and yes it is a rag……it’s owned by Murdoch still isn’t it?

        • Somebody says:

          Speaking of rags……did anyone see the open for SNL last night? It was posted on another site with the misleading headline Trump cold open for SNL. I assumed Trump had made another appearance. I thought, smart, perhaps softening his image a little.

          OMG no, it was absolutely disgusting. Whoever the actor is that plays Trump was impersonating him at a rally talking seductively about Ivanka and almost salivating over Ivanka’s breasts getting bigger after giving birth.

          I didn’t make it through the whole thing, I turned it off it was THAT disgusting. It was in very bad taste and completely over the top. I would feel that way if I wasn’t a Trump supporter. Just a friendly warning to everybody avoid SNL stuff this week.

          • DeniseVB says:

            SNL has become unwatchable. I don’t mind political humor as long as they jab both parties equally, but parody only works if it’s based on truth. Like the Bill-Monica send ups, it was true … and funny. They’ve pretty much left Obama alone these past 8 years, and he’s a walking parody ! Nope, buh-bye SNL !

          • leslie says:

            I was years ahead of the curve on terminating any viewing relationship with SNL. Goes back, at least, to 2008.
            Boo . . . SNL. 😦

    If Paul Ryan is the GOP nomination, we will be witnessing the complete downfall of the GOP….which may be a good thing as long as some kind of new party will emerge that will truly embrace disenfranchised Americans. Coupled with the nomination of Clinton, who then will completely destroy Ryan, we may also be witnessing the demise of the Democrat Party as well. And, maybe it’s time to start over. While there is a tad of exhilaration in the air, it is also very distressing.

      Washington Irving was largely responsible for American school children believing Columbus sailed in 1492 to prove the world was round thanks to the “biography” Irving wrote about him. Educated people of that time in Europe believed the earth was spherical w/o any doubts Eratosthenes had even calculated the circumference of the earth to about 90% accuracy around 200 BC. But middle school science teachers still get kids coming in believing in a Middle Age Flat Earth Society. A pox on Irving. lol

    • Dora says:

      Last spring Hubby and I took a tour of Sunnyside, Washington Irving’s home in Tarrytown. It was a very enjoyable trip. I have always loved WI, ever since I was a kid in school reading about the headless horseman. I didn’t know he was an Aries though. No wonder he was so smart. 🙂

    OK everybody here is a funny an a good idea. Scott Baio ordered coffee for his wife and placed the order under the name Trump. The barista refused to call out that name when the coffee was ready.

    Soooooo if you go anywhere and have to put your name on a waiting list or what have you, use the name Trump! Don’t forget you post it notes with Trump! to leave at random places or your sidewalk chalk……..or railroad chalk if you can find it.

  23. dm says:

    Just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone here for the overall congenial tone. I don’t interact much, just a couple of blogs really, but I gotta say that what I read really disturbs me…from the Cruz supporters mostly. I was a Cruz supporter once, but I never felt that angry or bitter towards Trump supporters. I have never felt anything snide or derogatory directed towards me personally and I really appreciate that. I read things about how Trump supporters are just like the Obots, but it seems to me it’s the Cruz supporters who have blinders on to others comments or critique. It just dumbfounds me, as I have never been one to take things – especially politics – so personally. Any mention of Trump is a personal offense to these people – boggles the mind. But then again, some days my mind is pretty easily boggled so there’s that. Hope everyone is enjoying their day.
