    Instead of pouncing on Hillary's excoriation by FBI director Comey, Trump went off about how he admired the way Saddam Hussein handled terrorists. Instead of letting the controversy over his tweet of an anti-semitic meme go away, Trump won't let it die. He thinks there is nothing wrong with showing a star of David superimposed over a pile of money and the words "most corrupt candidate ever" next to an image of Hillary. He's blaming the media but he is literally keeping this thing alive. Look at this tweet from yesterday.

    Worst. Candidate. Ever.

    He did pounce on Hillary. Not sure how you have missed that.

    Where and how? Did he run ads? Did he do an emailer?

    Or did he make a couple of Tweets and add a couple of lines to his standard stump speech?

    So he added a couple of minutes to his stump speech at a rally in Raleigh, NC. Big Deal.

    My point is that he's relying on free media and doesn't have a proactive campaign. Just waiting for him to use the $51M he recently raised to pay back the loans he made to his campaign. I wonder how that's going to go over with his supporters when that news comes out?

    Today Trump called Senator Mark Kirk R-Illinois, stroke survivor, Georgetown law graduate, and retired Naval intelligence officer, "a loser".

    I saw part of his rambling speech last night in Ohio. Went on and on about the star, CNN, etc. In the Ohio speech, it was more than a couple of minutes. He had a perfect opportunity to move on and let this non-issue die on the vine; instead, he just kept going on about it. I don't think he can help himself.

    Then Trump told Jeff Flake R-Arizona, that if he didn't support him he would start attacking him and make sure he lost his re-election bid.

    He's very vindictive and he does not take criticism well. Imagine if he becomes President...

    It's easy to do so. He'd be a great improvement over Hillary. And Obama, as well.

    Was that before or after Kirk called Trump a bigot and a racist? After, wasn't it?

    Sounds like Kirk asked for it.

    Not true, Trump has been all over Hillary's "rigged system", the "unbelievable" way she gets away with things and posted this just today.



    ...and Trump made a very good point about the identical Disney star not getting any attention while he calls to attention the kind of the media (and folks like ITL ;) ) propaganda being used against him.

    And where is this ad being run? How many times is it being run?

    Or has only been posted on YouTube and not being shown anywhere else?

    Trump is tone deaf. He could have passed off the Star of David as an inadvertent juxtaposition error. No, he defended it and went after Disney. Let's see, a hexagram superimposed on a pile of cash (those Jewish bankers, wink, wink) or a hexagram on the cover of a movie beloved by millions of little girls. I don't think the original Trump message was antisemitic, but Trump just compounds his campaign's missteps by doubling down.

    As to Kirk, "loser" to Trump means "someone who dares disagree with me." Kirk seems not be a "loser," kind of like John McCain isn't a "loser," but he's on Trump's list, so he gets the full treatment: not an argument, just an epithet. And there you have Trump in a nutshell. He likes to call names but doesn't like to be called names.

    They don't call him Dumb Donald for nothing. He is up against two smart liars in Bill and Hill.

    His actions and bumblings make me wonder if he's a plant for the Clintons. What real candidate, after their opponent just had the worst day of the campaign, including having the director of the FBI call her a liar multiple times, would praise Saddam Hussein, remind people of a racist tweet he made days after it occurred, and attack senators from his own party?

    I think that Trump can mend fences with the GOP Senators by taking Mitch McConnell as his Vice-President, in one act reassuring the US Chamber of Commerce that all is well and more cheap labor is being imported and guaranteeing the future employment of the lying Senate hero Mitch McConnell.
