In a speech at the Center for Popular Democracy’s annual gala recently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren [a Democrat] took aim at Trump’s business record and populist rhetoric during a 10-minute speech. Trump responded by calling Warren “Pocahontas.” She said that during the 2008 financial crisis, Trump was the “man roots for people to get thrown out of their houses? What kind of a man roots for people to get thrown out of their jobs? To root for people to lose their pensions?”
“Elizabeth Warren, she is going out — she is probably the senator that is doing just about the least in the United States senate. She is a total failure.” As usually comments by Trump but nothing to back it up.
Meanwhile, Trump has claimed that other recent Presidential nominees haven’t released their tax returns when in fact, all have since 1976. Then he says “he doesn’t think that the rules that apply to everyone else should apply to him.”
Donald Trump is standing by his comments that “school resource officers” or trained teachers should be the ones carrying guns. He then says than gun free zones should only be eliminated “in some cases.” What cases? How does he distinguish where the zones stay?
“I don’t want to have guns in classrooms, although in some cases teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly,” he said. Which cases? Does it depend on where the school is located?
“If trained people had guns, you wouldn’t have the carnage that you’ve had.” Tell that to the victims of mass shootings in the US.
“They hear gun free zones and they go in there with their guns blazing.” And I’m sure he has scientific proof on this.
Meanwhile, Trump wrote in 2000 that he supported the assault weapons ban and favored longer waiting periods to purchase a firearm. Trump even said President Barack Obama “spoke for me and every American” when Obama called for action to combat gun violence in the wake of the Newtown school shooting in 2012.
It is interesting to note that those who are backing Trump [such as the NRA] are going after Hillary Clinton more than showing Trump’s record – maybe because Trump continues to flip flop or be very shaky on his record.
While Trump believes that global warming is a bunch of garbage, he wants to build a wall in Ireland. No, not to keep out the British but because he has discovered that the Atlantic waves are eroding the side of his golf course. So he is proposing a 20 foot wide limestone seawall.
As well, there are three class action lawsuits against Trump, well Trump University. Seems even with 10,000 students learning how to become a real estate mogul like Trump [among other things], the “university” abruptly closed its doors.
Neil Young didn’t want Trump to play his “Rockin’ In The Free World” but after paying a licensing fee, Young allowed Trump to use the song. I guess everyone has a price.
The owner of Trump International Hotel & Tower in Toronto wants to sell the joint. Trump gets paid to have his name on the building but that’s it [supposedly]. It opened in 2012 after over 5 years of construction sand delays.
Don’t you just love politics? Marco Rubio was slinging mud at Trump 3 months ago – calling him some not so nice names. 3+ months later he’s praising Trump!
