The more I see Pence cleaning up after Trump by trying to explain away the Gold Star mess and the Paul Ryan endorsement thing, the more that Kasich story seems believable. Pence would be de facto president, just not actual president.

I feel like Pence and Trump are the personification of that Key & Peele sketch Obama's Anger Translator, only things have gone horribly, horribly awry.

Trump is so rediculous

Ego so fragile he has to bother responding to that shit. Dude, all of Hillarys speakers were just fads and emotional appeals. You just had to keep talking about making America great and not comment and you'd be set.

If there is anything to be learned from this election, it's that saying "make America great again" is better than any substantial argument

Has anybody else read " the art of the deal"?

In it, Trump says that his go-to strat is to ask for insane things at the negotiating table. Then by the time he is beat down to a compromise, he gets what he actually expected to get at the start.

That was my first thought when I heard promises like a wall Mexico will pay for. its rhetoric and a sales/negotiation tactic against congress. Not a serious threat.

For what it's worth I'm pretty sure that's exactly what he had in mind regarding his NATO comments. He has no intention of leaving or even shorting NATO, but without that threat on the table he's not going to get them to make changes he wants... going by his negotiating style. The problem in the NATO case is that the threat alone does serious damage to the alliance.

In it, Trump's ghostwriter says that his go-to strat is to ask for insane things at the negotiating table. Then by the time he is beat down to a compromise, he gets what he actually expected to get at the start.

I know ghostwriters, I have the best ghostwriters. There are no better writers than ghosts and I have the best.

Whoa, hold on there. The (R) camp was chanting "lock her up," I mean that's clearly an acceptable behavior. Daring to have a muslim stand up and rebuke Trump for not reading the constitution, on the other hand... that's completely and utterly srs bsns and DEMANDS a strong response.

What are you thinking, man! I mean, how can you let THAT go?!?
