Trump Vs HuffPo: Part II

  • sonoitabear

    “The Lady Doth Protest Too Much”…”Sideshow Don” strikes again..!

  • Necessitas

    Trump admits he doesn’t think America is great.

    • clay

      Why do you hate America?

  • Homo Erectus

    Touched a nerve, did she?

    • medaka

      Sweet, innit?

    • Gerry Fisher

      Yeah, but he *lives* for this kind of poo-fling through the media. This kind of juvenile over reaction is why he’s #1 in the Republican polls.

    • Soren456

      But it was an unimportant nerve.

  • CPT_Doom

    And by “not focused” the campaign means “so pissed off we had to write this press release.” This behavior really does make The Donald seem so Presidential doesn’t it? Obama is always sending out press releases stating how unimportant his critics are, isn’t he?

    • clay

      and calling out individuals by name.

    • Ginger Snap

      Bullies don’t know how to do much more than to bully everyone around them.

      • Michael Rush

        he’s slipping , he missed a chance to call Rosie O’Donnell a disgusting pig and a degenerate in his press release .

        • WaltHawkNYC

          He also forgot to call Arianna Huffington a “loser.”

          • JW Swift

            Although he did make a point of saying that HuffPo (supposedly) loses money. As if that’s the ultimate measure of someone’s worth.

          • Bad Tom

            Bold words from a man whose corporations have filed for Chapter 11 four times.

          • TampaDink

            Well, in all fairness, operating an online news source comes with more financial risks than running casinos….since casinos are notorious for their inability to draw in people who are willing to part with their money, unlike the Huffington Post.
            /sarcasm.

          • Bad Tom

            AND casinos are also notorious for running with a negative profit margin.

            How the fuck could Trump have screwed the pooch so badly running CASINOS???? Four. Times.

            It boggles the mind.

          • TampaDink

            Being such a “shrewd businessman” would disqualify anyone else from an attempted run for POTUS, espeically as a rethug.

          • JW Swift

            Of course, but if you ask him, there’ll always be some reason why it was never his fault. Every decision he ever makes is the right one. Every one.

          • Bad Tom

            Deflection of blame is perhaps his most perfected skill.

    • crewman

      The Republican model is more of a Putin than an Obama. I could see Putin doing that potentially, or more likely they’d just be killed.

      • People4Humanity

        Putin would have his cornflakes run thru the radioactive isotope machine.

    • John30013

      If this is the quality of writing we can expect from his PR staff, he needs to hire new staff….

      And it sure is rich of him to talk about the “money-losing” HuffPo.

      • RoFaWh

        The sheer childishness of that screed suggests that The Donald himself was heavily involved in the writing.

  • franklinb23

    A very petty and snarky ad that Obama would never have used.

  • JT

    TRUMP
    Make America Hate Again!

    Corrected with a touch of reality.

    • gaymex

      Make America Straight Again.

      • People4Humanity

        I’m sure you two poets could conjure up a sonnet?

        • gaymex

          lol. I’ll work on one after I clean the pool.

    • DumbHairyApe

      Make America Crepes Again!

    • Gerry Fisher

      Again?

    • David Walker

      Makes America Grate Again!

      • GC

        Cheesus Christ! (Our Grate Lord)
        (couldn’t resist)

  • TexPlant

    Trump does add to the comic element that is the GOP clown car.

  • AtticusP

    And the winner is…

    • Gene

      it would be hard for him to be President and travel abroad. aside from the Spanish speaking world loathing him, our closest ally, the UK, would demand a 3 month quaranteen before they would let that thing on his head into their country

      • clay

        Have you seen pictures of London’s mayors?

        • Gene

          TRUE! Boris does have a head of…something…but, he is local. It does explain why he does not seem to travel abroad much though 🙂

  • JustSayin’

    There is his snit fit, right on cue. For some reason reading this I hear ” it’s my party and I’ll cry if I want too” running ing the background.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Donnie, show a little class. Honestly, you are down to getting invitations to only to the “Winter Rich People Party” and “We are Rich and Stupid Ball”. You are becoming more Cruz, than Teddy.

    • olandp

      But Anastasia, darling, the Donald has no class. That is his thing.

      • JW Swift

        Oh, but ask him and he’ll tell you he’s got class coming out his azs.

  • oikos

    It’s ronnie raygun’s slogan with the ‘Let’s’ left off. How original.

    • clay

      Raygun, who hated Mexican immigrants (oops, no).
      Raygun, who hated international trade (oops, no).
      Raygun, who hated the California media (oops, no).
      Raygun, who won the Iowa Caucus (oops, no).
      Raygun, who complained about a blogger not adequately researching his tweets (not even going to look for that).

      Can’t wait for one of the older contenders (Lindsey?) to say to Trump, “i knew Ronnie Raygun, and you, sir, are no Ronnie Raygun.”

      But I do imagine Raygun (at least at one point) knew that the South Carolina primary is before the North Carolina primary. It seems that Trump is not very good at listening to his handlers– 15,000 in Phoenix, 1000 in NYC, North Carolina primary– when do his mistakes become its own news item?

  • JustSayin’

    Oh and as a reminder Donny boy, in Nevada Hispanics aren’t allowed to be polled until they show their papers, courtesy of other bigots like you, so leading in the hispanic polls means a third generation Hispanic who works for a trump property said they would vote for you.

  • Sam_Handwich

    RNC chair Rinsed Penus is not sleeping well these days.

    • Gene

      true! ever see the bumber sticker “god is not a republican (smaller letters) or a democrat” ?
      .
      His candidacy, if it does blow up in a month or two as expected, might mean that the last part of that bumper sticker is wrong! He is a GIFT to the democrats. Just listening to my conservative co workers moan about him (or worse, FEVERISHLY support him while saying that ONLY he or Cruz would be worth voting for…if not them, why bother to vote?) is heartening!

    • medaka

      I thought it was Rancid Prepuce. Shit, guess I shouldnt’ve spent my Big Gay Agenda Update dues on that big-ass Mormon rentboy.

      • Robincho

        And here I was, still working with Rancid Pubis.

        • 2karmanot

          I never got beyond rinsed penis.

    • Gustav2

      I have no sympathy for him.

      • HadenoughBS

        There has never been a presidential primary candidate in my lifetime as self-bloviating, self-important, and self-promoting as this xenophobic buffoon Trump. And if he announces just one more time how fucking rich he is….. 👿

    • GC

      It’s long past time for the T.P. party, and the Greedy Old Party in general, to become politically irrelevant.

      This meme is courtesy of Americans Against The Tea Party:

      • TampaDink

        I wish that this had been shared & spread far & wide during the last presidential election cycle.

    • Cattleya1

      Reince is riding herd on a pack of adolescent skunks. What a truly nasty job. He probably needs daily baths with Clorox to get rid of the stench.

  • Gene

    this is the reaction to a slight by the Huff post.
    and some people want this man in charge of our nuclear arsenal
    stopped being funny, started being scary when I realized that he could carry enough early primary states, and has enough $$$ to pull off becoming a serious contender.
    I would LOVE to see the data showing his popularity with Hispanic voters in Nevada by the way.

    • gaymex

      I, too, would like to see the Nevada data. Maybe he’s counting each Trump piñata sold as a vote.

      • Ginger Snap

        He’s counting his paid supporters..

      • People4Humanity

        Perhaps he’s counting each Trump piñata made? That will give him more “voters.”

        • gaymex

          Well…fuck…I guess that means he’s received 6 votes from me, because I’ve bought three of them for the local kids to destroy and I’ve ordered three more.The kids knock them to pieces and then stomp on them. I love it.

          • People4Humanity

            Candy!

          • Bad Tom

            Not sure I would eat candy from something like that.

      • Jenni

        Haha, I nearly spit out my coffee at that one!

    • Drew2U

      This guy may have some popularity among the fringe but he doesn’t have ENOUGH money (Koch money) OR the approval of the GOP machine to pull anything off. But it is keeping the heat off the usual GOP suspects who aren’t ready for prime time. Next to Trump, they’ll all look reasonably sane.

      • skeptical_inquirer

        I wish the other candidates would be asked why they didn’t repudiate his batshittery.

    • Gerry Fisher

      3 of the 5 Republican Hispanics polled for Trump.

      • Gene

        ah….Republican Hispanics in Nevada…so, 3 out of 5….thats like…almost DOZENS of people! wooowww.

        • clay

          If 4100 equals 15,000 in Trump math, then five must equal dozens.

          • LovesIrony

            i to the 3rd

          • Bad Tom

            Where i is imaginary.

          • GC

            In which case, with i to the third he simply negates himself, in math as well as (hopefully) in politics!

          • Bad Tom

            Looks like this might be happening right now wrt Trumps remarks on McCain.

          • Bad Tom

            He’s been taking math lessons from NOM.

      • D. J.

        Yeb! Must have given him a poll vote while he’s in Las Vegas for his hoodie jog.

    • Gene

      PS…I have actually met this freak a couple of times…he is EVERYTHING in person he presents himself as being for the media (if anyone wondered if he he was being an ass just to get attention and the fundy huckabilly vote…no…this IS who he is. God/Fate/FSM believe in what you will, preserve us.

    • DonMN763

      Univision poll shows Hispanics don’t like Trump (70%), that they’ve heard his remarks (90%) and they find them offensive (80%).

      Oh, and Hillary beats Bernie by 70%.

  • Lakeview Bob

    I bet Bill Maher can hardly wait to return to his “Real Time” show next month. Can you imagine the fun at his stand up routines while he is on hiatus from his show?

    • gaymex

      It hasn’t been too long ago on Maher’s show that Ann Coulter said she thought Trump would be the nominee. The audience howled at the thought. Well…

      • D. J.

        That was the first time I’d seen Ann Coulter draw laughter rather than boos and groans from an audience.
        One of those I’ll remember this for the rest of my life moments.

  • BeaverTales

    I hate to agree with Trump, but….how seriously do you take a website that still puts Sarah Palin in the Politics section? After all, he is still polling on top…he is the Republican frontrunner in several polls.

    • Dramphooey

      I don’t like those people; they pay for content with exposure rather than something useful like money. And when you get down to it they are doing the work of the GOP; the Republican leadership wants this Trump fiasco put to bed ASAP. Palin never made the entertainment section because the leadership know she’s a grifter and no real threat.

    • D. J.

      Sarah has to finish spendIng down her SarahPac money, then she can be removed from the politics section and go raise Bristle’s little dog climbers and future WWE entertainers.

      • GeoffreyPS

        Bristle… nice! My sister recently referred to her as copulating populating machine.

        • JustSayin’

          I like that!

  • bambinoitaliano

    As president, the king of bankruptcy will file chapter 11 on behalf of the country again and again.

  • David Bradbury

    I can’t figure out if this is a joke or not.

    • gaymex

      We need to make sure The Onion didn’t write this.

      • CA2015

        The Onion should just re-print Trump’s press releases, with no edits.

  • Gustav2

    The court jester always thinks he should be king.

  • Joseph Miceli

    So, instead of using proper punctuation, “The Donald” is using random caps, missing quotes and no indents. THIS is the press release of a man who wishes to be President…this sloppy slap-dash piece of folderol that looks to have been written by a high school freshman?
    No, I don’t think using “Trump-tuation” instead of “punctuation” was a good idea at all.

    • clay

      from the same man who has one half to one third the audience he claims and thinks the NC primary is before the SC primary.

    • Arkansan

      It’s not like any of his fan base would notice,

    • danolgb

      Maybe it’s secret code.

      • Joseph Miceli

        Sort of like the chattering of squirrels? I think the Donald listens to them and does what they say.

  • Mister Don

    Since he’s focused on “Making America Great Again,” when is he leaving?

    • Marides48

      Because no other place in the world wants him.

    • skeptical_inquirer

      If only he took all those people pledging to leave if Obama got in office like a certain Limp Bowels.

  • If he doesn’t get the Republican Party’s nomination we must do everything in out power to make sure he runs as an independent.

    EDIT FOR WHOEVER DOWNVOTED ME: Someone doesn’t understand the destructive power of a second spoiler candidate running against The Rulers’ approved candidates. See: Perot, Ross; Nader, Ralph.

    • gaymex

      That would be wonderful.

        Donald Trump / Rand Paul ’16

  • Ginger Snap

    I always cringe when I see NH mentioned in the same sentence with any of the clown car clowns of the GOP. My beautiful state I’ve called home my entire life doesn’t deserve to be abused in this way.

  • Michael Varian Daly

    Goddess knows, I hate to agree with The Donald on anything – except maybe how fuckable his daughter is – but this is total bullshit. As someone else pointed out, HuffPo still puts fucking Sarah Palin in the Political Section.

    No, this is Arianna being a servant of The Rulers, who hate that Trump has so thoroughly unmasked the true nature of the GOP core base.

    The Media is trying this same kind of marginalizing bullshit on Bernie because he too has tapped into the true nature of core Democratic base and both those things threaten to upset the political narrative The Rulers have created.

    • Stuart Wyman-Cahall

      Palin, sadly, was once a VEEP candidate. There lies the difference..

    • skeptical_inquirer

      I agree with you. I don’t like Donald at all but I think as long as actual voters still put him ahead in polls, he has to be treated like a contender. If he was dead last then that would be a different story.

  • Michael Rush

    it looks like the repealing of obama care is the next thing republicans are going to latch on to ,.

    • clay

      that and passing laws allowing people and governments to refuse to recognize that gay and lesbian persons can marry. It’s right up there with campaigning against another Obama term.

      • Michael Rush

        how much time does Michelle Obama have left to announce ?

        • clay

          Ah, they’re AHEAD of the game? I did not know that.

          • CA2015

            They’re already pre-impeaching Hillary.

  • Mark

    In no way would I ever vote for this guy – but you got admit he has shucked the political correctness and has struck a raw nerve across a wide array of haters and supporters. It’s almost the old “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” – and people are lapping it up!

    And, as far as all the other contenders, Trump can most likely get done the stuff the others only dream of. He’s been up, he’s been down, he’s been a clown – and he’s still in the ring. So don’t be surprised if or when he hangs on to that top spot all the way to election day.

    As for HuffPo……Sarah Palin is political news???

  • zhera

    Free tip for Trumpy: If you want to pretend that something doesn’t bother you and that it’s of no significance for you, the thing to do is to IGNORE it. Not to issue a media response.

    • Steven Leahy

      Unfortunately he’s so arrogant, egotistical and has such a need to win he ends up acting like a schoolyard bully. Didn’t he have an epic battle with Rosie O’Donnell many years back where he stooped to new levels of obnoxiousness?

      • Cuberly

        So he’s Fox News, but in a human form?

        • Bad Tom

          “Human” is debatable.

          • Cuberly

            Good point.

          • David L. Caster

            Perhaps you should just say that Trumpty Dumpty is Faux “news” anthropomorphized.

          • Cuberly

            Yep, sounds more accurate. Thanks.

  • Elliott

    Also, Mr. Trump is a douchenozzle.

  • WaltHawkNYC

    Trump continues to be irrefutable evidence that money cannot, and never will be able to, buy class. Not even a “fortune” that is alleged (by him) to be as substantial as it is.

  • Webslinger

  • Is that what they mean by “tearing his hair out”? Or is he just having a bad hair day?

  • Steven Leahy

    Well much as he is an oaf, he’s right about Huffington Post!

  • anne marie in philly

    go fuck yourself, (t)rump!

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Dear Mr. Trump, you forgot one:

    Mr. Trump will never be taken seriously by any world leader or government.

    There, that sounds about right.

  • Blobby

  • Cuberly

    New campaign slogan.

    Trump: I make every day feel like kindergarten.

  • Octoberfurst

    So Trump is #1 “by a wide margin” with Hispanic voters in Nevada? Really? My bullshit meter is going off the charts. Call me crazy but I find it really hard to believe that Hispanics love a guy who refers to Mexican immigrants as all being rapists, thieves and murders. It’s like someone saying that the cops in Baltimore or Ferguson have a very high approval rating among the Black members of the community.

    • Stuart Wyman-Cahall

      I live here. I work in the casino industry which has a large Hispanic work force….most of which are unionized. Your bullshit meter needs no adjusting. In fact it’s perfectly calibrated.

      • Octavio

        Trump’s sample is only those who work in his hotel/casino (which until recently had a major bed bug problem). So, his data is a bit slanted.

    • Steven Leahy

      I saw a national poll that said well over 80% of Hispanics disapproved of Trump so I agree with you.

      • Reality.Bites

        Yes, but over 80% of them are Democrats.

        Among the tiny minority of Hispanic voter in Nevada willing to vote Republican, who the hell knows how much self-loathing they have?

        • GC

          Or how much they’ve been taken in by the Republicon narrative that “everyone’s a latent millionaire” if only it weren’t for the goddamn librul big gubmint.

    • Marides48

      Or like saying that “Hitler is #1 with the Jewish vote>”

  • Drew2U

    …Is anybody else noticing the similarity between the writings of Trump and Kim Jong Un? Detached from reality, slightly deluded, both living in his own world.

    • Menergy

      Hmmmm (rubbing chin) I like that!

  • Bob M

    LIstened to commentary yesterday that pointed out that while trump is “ahead” in the pols, he was @ 17% followed bu 14% for whoever was next with numbers getting smaller for the balance of the republican, hardly ‘the leader” except in small numbers.

    • clay

      He’s still within the margin of error against Jib. He still has more than 20% of the GOP electorate saying they would NEVER vote for him. And, despite his claims, there’s no way he’s wrestling Iowa from (relatively) local boy Walker.

  • GC

    How well would his candidacy play if we neutralized the Electoral College and made voters in every state actually matter? It’s easier than many people think: http://www.nationalpopularvote.com/

  • Huffpo is wrong in this instance. Damn, I just agreed with something tRump said…….

    • stevenj

      I think they should have put him on the Comics page.

  • JustSayin’

    Wackadoodle do boy is making all sorts of friends with evangelicals in Iowa. Besides cussing In front of them, he was extremely disrespectful about john McCain’s pow status and to top it off he said this

    “Mr. Trump also struggled to answer if he had ever sought forgiveness from God, before reluctantly acknowledging that he had not.”

    “If I do something wrong, I try to do something right,” he said. “I don’t bring God into that picture.”

    And then this

    “When we go in church and I drink the little wine, which is about the only wine I drink, and I eat the little cracker — I guess that’s a form of asking forgiveness,” Mr. Trump said.”

    Here is the article

    • noni

      Interesting how Trump is crashing the gates. He’s saying taboo stuff, that has been ridiculously taboo. He grosses me out, but I think I might be seeing his strategy. I mean maybe once he blows all these sacred cows out of the water we can start talking about the real world.

  • James

    It’s funny when someone who dodged military service then professes to be a great champion of war veterans.

  • leastyebejudged

    He’s using all the buzzphrases that appeal to people who get out and vote, though.

    I stopped underestimating how stupid the voting public is a long time ago.

    Look at all the damage the Tea Party has done.

  • Dennis

    Huff Post can put F*ck Face Von Clown Stick in whatever section they want to. But they’re still writing about him. VCS is still getting publicity. VCS is still earning money.
    Von Clown Stick is not an idiot. VCS talked crap about McCain. VCS knew what he was doing. It’ll bring VCS publicity and $$. He’s not stupid. He’s just a F*ck Face Von Clown Stick A**hole!
