This is how Democrats bait Donald Trump

"Calling Trump ‘Unfit,’ Obama Urges G.O.P. to Abandon Him"
“The question they [GOP] have to ask themselves is: If you are repeatedly having to say in very strong terms that what he has said is unacceptable, why are you still endorsing him?” Mr. Obama said at a news conference at the White House.
Mr. Obama said that in addition to Mr. Trump’s comments about the Khan family, the Republican nominee had demonstrated that he was “woefully unprepared to do this job.” The president said Mr. Trump lacked knowledge about Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
“This isn’t a situation where you have an episodic gaffe. This is daily,” Mr. Obama added. “There has to be a point at which you say, this is not somebody I can support for president of the United States, even if he purports to be a member of my party. The fact that that has not yet happened makes some of these denunciations ring hollow.”

Interesting that instead of "extremely careless" Hillary saying this, It's Obama calling Trump unfit.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Since it is Obama a Democrat trying to tell the Republicans and others what to do and lecturing us on how to vote, I think I can safely say....Fuck off Obama.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Of course they are baiting Trump, and getting the Establishment GOP to turn on him.

They are dong a hellava job at it too.

Wise up Donald!

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Trump: Go on the offensive against Hillary, the Media and Obama too (if you have to) but mostly Hillary. She is target number 1.

Leland said...

Trump's response should be his success at running a business compared to Hillary's list of international failures from Russia to Iraq to Libya to Syria. Can we talk about Hillary and Obama's backing of Hugo Chavez?

Trooper York said...

The GOP are the problem. They are more concerned about kissing the Muslims and wernack asses then winning the election.

edutcher said...

If ever there was an expert on unfit, Pissy is the one. Just look in the mirror.

What are you talking about? These were the backers of Jeb!, Grahamnesty, Little Marco, Christie, and (stealth) the One True Ted.

The Whigs were never going to back Trump. If they want to walk, let 'em, they've always let down the voters anyway.

They're the people who can't wait to reach out to their friends actoss the aisle in the Democrat party.

Trump: Go on the offensive against Hillary, the Media and Obama too (if you have to) but mostly Hillary. She is target number 1.

But don't be vulgar, we don't want to offend anyone, right?

Leland said...

Actually, her failures go back to the reset with Russia, but you've got his tack.

edutcher said...

Looks like The Donald's "bungled" strategy hit a nerve, Khan has deleted his law firm's pay-to-play website.

And calling Khan (and Pope Frank) on the Terror Has Nothing To Do With Islam thing. How dare he?

Also, Trump's response to Pissy's hissy fit.

Way too disrespectful, right, guys?

edutcher said...

One more thing, looks like the NSA has Cacklepants' deleted emails.

This is why we're hearing about the valiant, suffering Khans.

Patrick said...

One guy in the entire country who can't beat HRC, and the Stupid Party nominates him. Way to go!

Patrick said...

He's a fighter! Great strategy to pick a fight with the father of an American soldier who died in service of the U.S.
Smart!

edutcher said...

Patrick said...

Sounds like April in drag.

He's a fighter! Great strategy to pick a fight with the father of an American soldier who died in service of the U.S.
Smart!


Oh, yes, because the father of an American soldier is immediately sanctified and washed of his sins. And because the father has a vested interest in making sure Cacklepants is elected so she can quintuple the number of Moslems she's already imported into the country.

Try these on for size - Khan is a big fan of sharia.

Not to mention the connection from his law firm, a Saudi front, to the Ozark Mafia Global Slush Fund through vast Saudi donations.

If this guy's getting $15 an hr, he sure is overpaid.

Patrick said...

The fight is really working well for him, isn't it. There are a zillion ways you attack HRC, and dumb Don attacks this guy. Sad!

You may think it's not fair that your guy gets grief for this, but it is an easily predictable reality. His only chance you win is you relentlessly attack HRC's character and record. He chooses to waste his time on this. Just dumb.

AJ Lynch said...

What Patrick said. It is dumb and sad that Trump may be blowing this opportunity.

edutcher said...

Like any good Cruzzer, he will ignore the fact Khan is hardly the paragon of virtue the media wants him to be regarded as being.

Also, like any other Cruzzer, he ignores the fact that there's an important policy issue here.

The point is not who's right, the point is attack Trump.

Wonder if he's getting paid from Hillary's PAC or McConnell's.

edutcher said...

This would never have happened if the One True Ted had stolen the nomination the way Hillary did. The One True Ted would have said something about Heidi walking in expressway traffic and let it go.

Right?

Of course, the One True Ted would never be gauche enough to put a hold on Moslem immigration..

That might impact Goldman Sachs' cash flow.

AJ Lynch said...

Ed- do you really think the average voter is paying attention to what Mr. Khan did or did not do as an immigration lawyer or with his website? Get a grip - Trump is shooting himself in the foot - why didn't Trump focus all weekend on the crappy GDP numbers? Or Hillary's serial lying on Fox news Sunday ? Because he was too busy trying to get the last ugly word in on the Khan debacle.

He needs to pick 5-6 themes and hammer them home every day after day.

edutcher said...

AJ, do you think the average voter is paying attention at all?

It's the first week of August. Anybody who isn't on vacation is getting ready to watch the sludge Olympics in Rio.

This is all battlespace prep. See if they can get him to back down on something. Slime him as much as they can.

Fact is, they will go from one sacred cow, at least in the eyes of Whigs like Patrick, to another until he can't make any objection at all.

And then there's the issue of putting a hold on Moslem immigration, which the Whigs denounce as much as the Demos (funny that), which is what's really at stake.

But, no, we must be nice at all costs and let the Lefties slime us without complaint because we must be good, obedient sheep, mustn't we?

AJ Lynch said...

He needs to pick 5-6 themes and hammer them home every day after day.

And when he does, you always say he does it the wrong way.

He can't win with you people, so he might as well do it the way he thinks will work.

edutcher said...

Grist for the mill, especially Those who think trump may be losing.

Big personnel shakeup at the DNC.

I thought they were on a roll.

ndspinelli said...

The Dems are using rope a dope quite effectively. It's the early rounds but this egomaniac does not appear educable yet. He still has time. Good to see some folks here speaking truth and not lame spin like a few.

AJ Lynch said...

Ed - has he picked 5-6 yet?

Lat week I started to watch his speech on Friday afternoon I think and he started off by whining about Mike Bloomberg's DNC speech. My reaction was "this guy is wasting a great opportunity by acting like he probably does when he vents endlessly to his underlings in a staff meeting".

You ask who is paying attentio yet? How about the people in that crowd listening to Trump ramble or people working at that venue or people, like me, home early from work and tuning in to see what he has to say.

AJ Lynch said...

Ed :

Trump was 1st to say he was against TPP. He should point that out every day and also point out that now Hillary and the Dems are also against it.
He should remind people that he blasted the damaging job losses from NAFTA first and now even Hillary is saying "we should re-negotiate bad trade agreements".
He should point out that polls report that 65% or more of Americans support a temporary ban on Muslim immigrants.

He should do this stuff every day.


edutcher said...

AJ Lynch said...

If you can't tell, I can't tell for you.

You ask who is paying attentio yet? How about the people in that crowd listening to Trump ramble or people working at that venue or people, like me, home early from work and tuning in to see what he has to say

Guess what? They're paying attention because they're angry. And they've been with him while everybody else was bitching about how mean he was and how it was no way to win the nomination. And they're filling up the venues to the point they're being turned away. But the majority that will determine who wins is still more concerned about their tan or the size of Kim Cardassian's ass.

Trump was 1st to say he was against TPP. He should point that out every day and also point out that now Hillary and the Dems are also against it

He's talked about it again and again. You guys are so busy nitpicking, I guess it went past you.

He should remind people that he blasted the damaging job losses from NAFTA first and now even Hillary is saying "we should re-negotiate bad trade agreements".

Why is she saying it? Because he's used it on her like a club.

I linked this before, but you guys were busy bitching, it went right past you, so I'll put it up again.


Instead of raising millions of dollars from nefarious sources to run mean, hateful, nasty ads against his opponents, Trump is taking his message to the people.
That's because Trump is an amateur. He is not an experienced, conniving insider like Hillary. Trump actually thinks ideas work.

He has them.
1. Stop illegal aliens, build a wall, and deport them.
2. Renegotiate trade deals.
3. Makeover NATO.
4. Cut corporate taxes.
5. Ban immigration from hostile Muslim nations until we can sort out the bad guys from the good.

Above all, put America first.


BTW I put up stuff about how they're in crisis mode at the DNC and what do I hear? Crickets.

I put up Khan has deleted his website, which shows, the slug feels the need to cover his tracks, and everybody's "No, he's winning, CNN says so".

I put up Trump's response - which focuses on Hillary- to Pissy's hissy fit, which is a sure sign something's bad in Demo Town, and nobody even looked at it.

You guys don't care what Trump does, you just like bitching about him because your guy - or girl - lost.

ndspinelli said...

nd, the only one spinning is you.

edutcher said...

PS Something else Trump pointed out about Hillary 241 days since she held a press conference.

What's she afraid of?

Amartel said...

Obama's endorsement is the kiss of death.
He always backs the loser.
It is hilarious that Obama's saying Trump is unqualified. Wasn't that the complaint about Obama? He had every election handed to him and, while in office, hadn't done jack shit other than show up and vote present. And Clinton is self-pre-disqualified. She's been compromised and has a lengthy proven track record of constant lying and grifting. To Obama, that's probably a plus, though. Great experience.
This khan man shit is not good, and could have been (easily) handled better. But most of us see it for what it is: the same old same old moldy leftist media double standard fraudulence. Now with weepy muslims. Doofus-tested, whore-approved.
The Khan family politicized their grief. They're not immune from criticism. Last time this happened, the Republicans fell all over themselves being nice to Cindy Sheehan and what did it get them? Nothing whatsoever. It just allowed the Dems to keep pushing their fiction about Bush lied persons died and cover their own tracks. Everyone knows that Khan is political. Why would he be speaking at the Clinton convention otherwise? She voted for the Iraq War, after all. Plus, Pat Smith didn't exactly get the kid glove treatment, not by a long shot. Clinton supporters excoriated the poor woman for telling the truth and nobody on tv called for an apology.
Trump does need to get focused and back on track. Also, he should always always always remember to question every premise when he's being interviewed.

rcocean said...

What's she afraid of?

She's afraid of reveling the true Hillary. This woman has never been subjected to 1/10 the number of hostile questions that Trump has. She's a corrupt liar and everyone knows it.

Thank God Trump was nominated because, despite having the MSM Moderator in her corner, Trump will subject Hillary to some real hostile questions and demand answers.

Chip Ahoy said...

I don't understand you people and I see engaging does nothing to change attitudes.

Trump wisely attacked Khan and he's feeling it and everyone save for possibly you and all Democrats and all GOPe see this. The entire charade is exposed for what it is again to everyone except for you.

Trump was chosen by his supporters precisely for this quality that you fail to appreciate.

Wrong in your assessment that he is the ONE candidate who cannot beat Hillary, no, he is the ONE candidate immune to standard DNC attacks. Immune to groveling for money like all the other candidates. It did take a billionaire to crash the system holding us all slaves to worn out ragged duopoly.

And that Mormon guy's trademarked head tilt and paternal dead smile of understanding doesn't cut it when you opponent is ripping you up.

Take cheer. All is well. Keep up with events as they continue to develop, instead your pre-judgement allows no new information to seep in. Not only Khan, but that type of attack is now impotent. Even while Democrat party disintegrates. Even as they continue to press because this pathetic line of attack is all they have.

Trump tore GOP a brand new asshole. No apologies if that hurts.

And now with the help of Wikileaks and Guccifer we see their sausage factory split open for all the world to examine. They're dropping like flies. Right now. Today. Hillary cannot attract a crowd.

Oh look at me, I engaged. Silly stupid me. No reason to bother. Here, I'll have better luck with this ossified stump.

"Hello petrified tree, fancy a conversation?" ____________

No wait, I'm making progress here.

rcocean said...

You people never get it, do you? Trump could stop saying anything except Pablum and the MSM would still attack him. And then you'd still be criticizing Trump.

If he stops talking to the MSM, like Hillary, he will be attacked for "Hiding from the Press".

No matter who the Republicans nominate they will be labeled "sexist, bigots, homophobes, raciss".

The MSM isn't objective, they're trying to get Hillary elected.

rcocean said...

Wow, Chip just said what I wanted to say.

Only 10x better.

ndspinelli said...

Someone needs to put Trump on a catch phrase quota. He can only say, "I hate to say this" or "To tell you the truth" 14 times each a day instead of the 287 times he is currently saying those vapid lines.

Baghdad ed seems lost w/o April.

ndspinelli said...

I can only speak for myself but I don't care if the MSM attacks him. We all know the MSM hate him and will attack him no matter what he does or says. Just stop giving them loaded guns AND FOCUS! Someone needs to slip some Adderall in his coffee.

Amartel said...

Kizer Khan.
King King.
That's his name.
And he's big on finger-wagging.
And his wife covers her head and is not allowed to speak.*
And he runs an immigration lawfirm that specializes in moving muslim immigrants into the U.S.
But he's deleted the law firm's website for some mysterious reason.
Not exactly the credible spokeshole everyone is assuming he is.

*No, I don't buy that she's just shy and grief-stricken. She was there on the stage. If she was a Republican they'd all be saying she's oppressed and was blinking out "help" in Morse code.

This Kahn couple were in a an HBO documentary titled, Section 60[Arlington National Cemetery].

Rhythm and Balls said...

Oh, look ed!

Warren Buffett came out against Candidate Vote for Me I'm Rich! today also.

What's up with that? It's almost like there isn't a single billionaire or business associate of his who supports him (except Putin).

Why is that? What's going on? I thought you kept telling us this guy is like Kryptonite (except not in the service of Lex Luthor) and that the only reason to criticize him was to oppose him. I thought you said he was invincible. Buffett said he's hiding something politically harmful in his secret tax returns.

Oh ed. Somehow you will turn back this conspiracy against Candidate Kryptonite Superpower Invincible.

But I would like to know why you're getting so defensive, in the meantime. I mean, he does have the support after all of Chachi.

Chachi's candidate is Edwina's candidate. Only good things will be said and tolerated about Chachi's guy.

But I do wonder what you're hiding.

edutcher said...

Ritmo will be back after the adults have left to say something he deems witty.

As for Buffett, he's an open borders cheap labor type who showed how truly scared the Lefties may in fact be by pulling out the old "Have you no decency?" line.

Doesn't he know the truth about that one's been out on the Internet for at least 10 years?

Rhythm and Balls said...

I'm not sure there's really much point in reading Compulsive Ed. That rapid-fire response software was apparently uploaded without the programming suite of "Be responsive to the actual question and see if you can answer it." I mean, even Mike Pence couldn't offer any response to another military mom who objected to the Khan episode and Trump Team Boos by saying, hey that's free speech! Ain't America great?

Buffett's no fan of progressives, or of economic nationalism, you say? Maybe so. But I don't doubt that he knows business and businessmen. Again, is there a businessman or partner who's with Trump? This should cut across whatever politics he supports. You figure at least one or two prominent names would come out in support.

We can avoid the Khan episode, if you want. But democracy won't. I'd give the Vegas odds of an America that sticks up for a gold star family and fallen of any religion to an America that hates Muslims too much to even make an allowance for that at 2 to 1, at the lowest. But maybe I understand America and what matters to it less well than Trump does.

I'm sorry you made me do this to you, Ed. I still distrust Hillary as much as anybody. But she's gaining on him.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Put it to you this way - I'm starting to take the suggestions that Trump was a paid-off Clinton plant more and more seriously by the day.

edutcher said...

April will be happy, but she believes everything she sees on CNN, too.

Sixty Grit said...

Khan is actively trying to destroy this nation. He is the enemy. Never lose sight of that one fact, and pay attention to who aligns with him. Those people are collaborators.

XRay said...

Someone (DT) needs to take the time to do some oppo research before lashing out. I mean look at the Khan Klown. A talented few hours of research as to his affiliations would have added much to DT's response. Sixty's 8:59 point is relevant as well as to how DT should be reacting to these provocations, considering additional motives more closely than just political rancor.

Here's an example of about as unhinged a comment as they come. Hopefully the person who made it has a hefty arsenal under which to bury and barricade himself before he goes out on a rampage and does the old white guy/Tim McVeigh version of Nidal Hassan. It's important for people who hate more than they think to have, er, "things" to hold on to.

edutcher said...

One night Ritmo hates Hillary. Next night he hates Trump.

He's the 4th and 5th faces of the 3 Faces of Eve.

Takes time (in this case, 5 days) to find these things and in the mean time, Khan is set up as the new Cindy Sheehan. The important point is the toldja so.

He's got it.

Funny how the know-it-alls all bet on the wrong horse.

edutcher said...

Now they're in real trouble.

Roger Stone's on Khan's ass.

Rhythm and Balls said...

I didn't realize I had to choose.

It's like you guys hated Stalin so much that you loved Hitler.

No need to choose. Hate both.

Don't fall into the ed trap of choosing loyalty on account of being forced into two bad options.

It's like Assange said - in the Grand Decision between cholera and gonorrhea, choose neither.

AJ Lynch said...

I agree with Sixty - people like Khan want to turn this country into the shitholes they came from.

XRay said...

Choosing neither is choosing the bigger liar. I suspect you know in your heart that is the case. So, you're not, not choosing. You're just saying don't look at me, I didn't vote for her, my conscience is clear.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Choosing neither is choosing the bigger liar. I suspect you know in your heart that is the case. So, you're not, not choosing. You're just saying don't look at me, I didn't vote for her, my conscience is clear.

First off - they work for me, not me for them. If I want to hire neither, that's their problem. If the one that gets hired does so by virtue of a smaller hiring committee than ever before, then that only hurts the hired candidate's legitimacy and sets the stage for a more involved and better candidate at the end of their tenure.

Second, there are red and purple and blue states. Third parties deserve all the support we can give them in the former and latter, since the duopoly's candidates are "safe" in those states anyway. Unless your state is purple, a swing state, truly in play, the biggest disservice you can do is to not vote 3rd party. Get them enough votes and they'll be on the next cycle's debates and gain access to all the same federal funds that the rotting two parties horde for themselves while shutting everyone else out.

Rhythm and Balls said...

By fighting and dying for a military as bellicose and over-extended as ours? Ok, I guess I see your point.

edutcher said...

Of course, Ritmo in surreal life is for Hillary.

Snark is all he can do, however.

XRay said...

Don't know if I might be included in the know-it-all reference, but just in case, I don't know shit from shinola. I do know that even a novice such as myself could have binged Khan's name and found his law firm site within 15 minutes, not 5 days, Just for a start. All I'm saying is that DT's team should have been on Khan's speech shortly after he gave it. Who is he, who's he know, who's he connected to, how does he make a living, why was he invited on the stage. Common sense stuff to my mind.

XRay said...

For the foreseeable future it is what it is. Glimmering up some third party BS as a vehicle for a lack of responsibility is just shiny on a turd.

William said...

I think Trump's response to the Khans was inelegant but honest and human. Compare his response with that of Hillary to the Benghazi mom. Hillary's words were carefully crafted and showed no distinguishable human emotion. I give Trump the advantage, but my response is not necessarily that of the electorate..........I recognize that the Khans are Gold Star parents. In public you have to say nice things about them, and they did truly suffer a grievous loss. But in private and here on the Internet, you can say that there's a lot about them that doesn't ring true. If the father is that sanctimonious about the Constitution, you can just guess how rabid he is about the Koran and Sharia Law. I'm sure the mother wears head garb to show her support for all the women in Islamic lands who are made to wear restrictive and uncomfortable clothes. They can spout the liberal western pieties, but I don't get the sense that they're completely down with western values......These are things you can say anonymously on the Internet, but you just can say them out loud in a political campaign.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Snark is all he can do, however.

Talk about surreal. All you're doing is cheerleading and demonizing.

Get a sense of humor. Both candidates suck. Closing your eyes to either candidate's flaws is serf-talk. Better to joke about it instead and embarrass them both. Each one already have egos way bigger than anything a VIP like you can do for them, ed.

And Roger Stone is about as cracked as Hillary's surrogates. No one will read that silly Breitbart piece.

Keep on cheerleading though, ed. You want some pom-poms? Let me know. If you're really nice, we can also get you a small school color sweater and pleated miniskirt.

We wouldn't want Melania showing you up, ed. You have to look at least as good as she does.

After all, you probably munch on Trump's wrinkled old member much more than she does, anyway. Best to get you the right uniform for it.

Now stop being so defensive already, again.

Rhythm and Balls said...

Glimmering up some third party BS as a vehicle for a lack of responsibility is just shiny on a turd.

If zombie shilling for a corrupt and broken system isn't the height of irresponsibility, I don't know what is.

But feel free to pat yourself on the back for the lopsided extra and completely meaningless votes for the party in the state that inevitably goes to that party. I'm sure the shitheads and the RNC and DNC will greatly appreciate all the extra power and bloated display of support that they didn't already need - to make them feel more popular and justified than they never were already. Rein Priebus and Debbie Wasserman Schultz - just really great Americans doing really wonderful things for the country. Let's inflate their sense of support and make them feel that their candidates really are popular enough to collectively get 95+% of the vote. That's one hell of a democracy. Both countries should unite and compete for election results that Saddam Hussein would be happy to get.

XRay said...

Good comment, William. Especially re the things you can say and not say vis-a-vis audience.

XRay said...

IOW's, more shiny.

ndspinelli said...

William, great comment.

edutcher said...

Let me say this.

If you've spent any time following politics, one thing you learn is how the Left operates. You see how they play their little games and how the media backs them up.

One way or another, I've been exposed to this stuff since the Army McCarthy hearings. The first convention I saw was in '56 and any time there was something on the news (Suez, Kefauver), we had it going. When things changed was in '64 when the Lefty game was on display for all to see; they've just embellished it since.

When you know how they work, you know who can beat them and how. You can't be nice and you have to be quick. Give them a news cycle and they own the narrative. Trump gets that, a lot of other people don't.

The point is what's the big issue, not how it looks. This was about making importing the Moslems inviolate. Now that the truth comes out, it's going to be tougher to push it.

You always have to have an overview.

XRay said...

Perhaps something happened that I missed... is April on vacation?

The past is the past. It can inform, but it shouldn't dictate, the future, necessarily.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

William, well said. Yes that is all true. Mitt Romney can tell you about the 49% and dogs on his roof.

Trump is in the "big game" now and so far (at least from the conventions) he is blowing it. I am not sure he is capable of winning but he should be ten points ahead of Hillary and he is probably somewhere between five and ten points behind. This is all unforced errors (of course with a very hostile press).

Can he turn it around, of course. But that requires reversing course.

That does not mean Trump should lay down like Romney did. Mitt was way too cautious. Trump needs to take the fight to Hillary (and the media). All the time. Don't be distracted by bait.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

Sixty, even if what you say is true (and it may be 100% true), so what? Trump missed his target, he is not running against Kahn, but Hillary (and her media stooges).

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

We are still talking about this, you would think Melania cribbed lines from Kahn's speech.

Evi L. Bloggerlady said...

This is for Ed and Sixty (and I hope Bill is right).

Rhythm and Balls said...

ed, you need to have a talk with this guy.

Someone needs to take a running tally of all these defections.

At some point I think it will go beyond the POTUS and have a real effect down-ticket.

Well, this is if you think the polls are honest. Last one I saw said she's 3 up, so you shouldn't be panicking as you are.

To expand on what I said earlier, I post Trump's response to Pissy's hissy fit and there's no response. Obviously, the former NeverTrumpers aren't interested in it even though he does what they think he should have done. No comment, whatsoever, so I conclude it's all just an excuse to whine because their guy lost.

And Quick is so far out there, nobody - even at Insta - agrees with him.

And I'm sure Ritmo's concern trolling is sincere.

He is a self-identified dhimmi.

And just in time to make my point, Moslem crazies in Paris waylay, firebomb bus.

Trump's response to Obama was fine. Great. More of that please.

edutcher said...

E, I'm at the point where I just put it down to he can't please you guys.

Sixty Grit said...

Hillary voters like to dissect everything they read or hear about Trump. They are working to ensure that their candidate wins. There is no point in engaging with them - their minds are made up and they are good with how Hillary operates.
