Oh another Trump week

Donald Trump heatedly rejected the growing list of sexual assault allegations against him as “pure fiction”, hammering his female accusers [at least 9 of them] as “horrible, horrible liars”. Similar behavior was detailed by women who accused Trump in articles published by The New York Times and the Palm Beach Post.
[If one made claims or even two, there could be some doubt. But when at least five – that doubt diminishes. Add to the tape and his overall comments about women.]
Trump claims that he wouldn’t be caught with any of them women whom have come forward but he is comparing what they look now and not when the allegations occurred – some thirty years or more ago.
He was preparing evidence that would discredit his female accusers and he claimed he would do it at the right time. [This is the equivalent of code word meaning he has nothing and is trying to dig up dirt – most likely to discredit them instead of the accusations.] He said he “never met” some of the women. At least one accuser said it happened about a year after the marriage of his third [and current – for now] wife who was pregnant at the time.
“These vicious claims about me, of inappropriate conduct with women, are totally and absolutely false. And the Clintons know it,” he said. He offered no evidence discrediting the new reports except to ask why his accusers had waited years and then made their allegations less than a month before the election. Aside from the Clintons, he’s blaming the left wing media and even the Republican party.
Trump campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, who earlier in the week highlighted a Clinton tweet that said “every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.” Conway hoped to encourage more women to come forward with allegations against Bill Clinton but instead are coming out against Trump.
Trump tried to force The New York Times to retract their article “Two women Say Donald Trump Touched Them Inappropriately”. The times lawyers sent Trump’s lawyers a reply that they could shove it [not in those words] and “we welcome the opportunity to have a court set him straight”. Here is Trump’s lawyers’ request. [The webmaster should of numbered these. There could be more.]
Meanwhile, some pageant contestants claim Trump would visit them while in various state of undress [usually while changing into or out of bikinis] at his pageants when he owned them. He would stay there long enough and the contestants wouldn’t have enough time to cover up when he came in. [Maybe goes with his lust for young women.]
On the “Apprentice” show that was hosted by Trump, “Trump repeatedly demeaned women with sexist language” and “said he rated female contestants by the size of their breasts and talked about which ones he’d like to have sex with.” Supposedly there could be footage. But “Apprentice” producer Mark Burnett and his company’s owner, MGM, said that that he and MGM have “various contractual and legal requirements also restrict MGM’s ability to release such material.”
There is even an unverified claim that there’s a contractual penalty of $5 million for any Burnett employee who disclosed proprietary information about the show.”
Trump running mate Mike Pence ditched the national reporters who pay to travel with his campaign in Pennsylvania because of the questions asked.
Anyone ever notice that while the presidential candidate is above the running mate, when you compare Clinton and Tim Kaine, they are generally the same font size but Trump’s name is generally double the size of Pence?
Trump suggested that Clinton has been “getting pumped up” with performance-enhancing drugs and challenged Clinton to take a drug test before the final debate next week. Trump argued that Clinton was more energetic during the beginning of their debate last Sunday, but lost her steam by the end of the debate. He offered no evidence to back up his wild claim. “Athletes, they make them take a drug test. I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate,” Trump said. “I’m willing to do it.” Athletes are tested for cheating.
Trump finds another “broken,” “rigged” and “disastrous” policy to undo or abolish and then he says “I alone can fix it.”
“The truth is our immigration system is worse than anybody ever realized,” but offers no proof.
“I’m telling you, November 8th, we’d better be careful because that election is going to be rigged,” again with no proof.
“If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn’t put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%.” Sure Donald.
“Because of me, everyone now sees that the Republican primary system is totally rigged and broken,” said Trump – but if it’s rigged, how did he win?
“I mean, PACs — you know, these super PACs are a disaster, by the way, folks,” said Trump but he uses their money – well the few that support him.
“Because of NAFTA, signed by (Hillary Clinton’s) husband, is perhaps the greatest disaster trade deal in the history of the world. Not in this country. It stripped us of manufacturing jobs,” Trump said but again with no way to prove this.
Even after shocking Americans in the debate regarding prosecuting Hillary Clinton for her mail server issues, Trump continues to push the subject even though Clinton was cleared by the Department of Justice and there was no indication that the server was compromised. [For all we know there server was more secure than the government servers – some of which had breaches.]
Trump claimed that there is a “whole sinister deal going on” that has prevented Ryan and other Republican leaders from fully backing his campaign but he didn’t elaborate. Of course no explanation of what “deal”.
Remember that in 2006, he suggested that if Ivanka Trump weren’t his daughter, “perhaps I’d be dating her.” And a review of hours of audio from the Republican nominee’s appearances on the Howard Stern show spanning nearly two decades, found Trump commenting on Ivanka Trump’s body more than once, including an exchange about her breast size. In September 2004, Stern asked Donald Trump whether he could refer to Ivanka Trump as a “piece of ass.” Trump, responded affirmatively, saying that he could. Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said that Ivanka and her father have a “beautiful relationship.”
Catholic and evangelical groups slammed Hillary Clinton’s campaign in a statement Thursday over comments revealed in the WikiLeaks emails hack between two high-level campaign officials. Dozens of religious leaders who signed the statement expressed their “outrage at the demeaning and troubling rhetoric used by those within Secretary Clinton’s campaign.” [So exactly what do they say about Trump? Nothing. Even though I think most can agree the “demeaning and troubling rhetoric” from the Trump campaign is more serious – aside from the recent allegations against Trump as well as previously mentioned throughout the campaign.
A [Canadian] CTV senior political commentator compared Trump’s rhetoric to Benito Mussolini who prior to World War II wanted to jail opposition leaders, segregation, etc.
At one rally, there were signs up saying “Blacks for Trump” behind Trump and yet you could only see one person who would be considered black. The others may or may not have been. [Unsure why Trump even bothers. The percentage of blacks saying they would vote for him is very low.]
A poll from the right leaning Fox News says that Clinton has a 7% lead. The majority of respondents said they did not believe Trump was qualified to be president, while 68% of them said Clinton was either “somewhat” or “very” qualified for the job. Additionally, a slim majority said Clinton was a “good role model,” while only one-in-five said the same for the Republican nominee.
Trump’s health plans offers nothing for fathers, or men who adopt, and that Trump hotels do not provide workers with paid maternity leave. [Ivanka Trump had said they do.] Donald Trump’s comments about how worker pregnancies are bad for employers had indeed been reported far and wide, despite Ivanka Trump’s attempts to say it was never mentioned.
Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski parted ways with Trump in mid-June but his Green Monster firm received a $20,000 payment for “strategy consulting” on August 11, the same amount it has regularly been paid for months. [So he gets paid the same for less work. Nice.]
An Arizona newspaper is supporting a Democrat for the first time in over 100 years.
When morning TV news host Mika Brzezinski made some comments about Trump, Trump tweeted “Just heard that crazy and very dumb (Mika) had a mental breakdown while talking about me.” Now we know why the media doesn’t like Trump, according to Trump.
Reid Hoffman, the cofounder and executive chairman of LinkedIn pledged to donate up to $5 million to veterans organizations if Donald Trump releases his tax returns before the final presidential debate.
Trump’s running mate Pence and former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani have been comparing Trump to Reagan. Yikes!
