    Trump comes across as eminently reasonable. No one cares that he changed positions. Hell, look at how Romney changed from pro-choice, pro-gun-control to “pro-life” and “a severe conservative”. That didn’t stop the GOPe from supporting Romney. No one cares that Trump has his personal foibles, either. He should just say, “Hey, I’m not running for pastor. I’m running for president. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and that includes me.” He’d be back @ 35% in Iowa.

      Exactly, No one cares and t think most of us agree that we are All Americans first. To keep hashing oh! He is a Democrat and not true republican is stupid. Who cares really?
      Oh he has been married three times, uh duh as the politicians parade of being so wholesome as our tax dollars go to help support their mistresses or in Hillarys case legal fees.

      Watch out…Trump loves to use such words as “incredible” which mean what to him? First and foremost, Trump is a businessman. This means he sees a situation where the question becomes: “Is there profit here, and if so, at what amount (percentage) and can I find a way to capture it? He is all about creating profit, that is the life he has chosen. He is very good at extracting profit, very good. His language deflects this focus in many ways.

      Read between the lines. Is this the “Philanthropic Donald Trump” we are watching as he runs for President? He now wants to give back? Or does he sense his greatest payday yet to come (not perhaps for him personally, but certainly for his children…paving the pathway to mega riches and social power)?

      If he wins, can you even imagine his “post president library” that will house his records, etc.? Where will the name go? Will it be beyond the pyramids in design?

      Would he describe his design as “incredible” or “amazing” when selling it?

      The art of the deal at work…be careful.

        Trump is all about profit- fantastic! Our recent presidents like deficits. I, for one, welcome someone who has a “profit” outlook. Trump’s kids are set for,life anyway. If you want to talk about kids profiting from their dad being POTUS, look no further than Chelsea Clinton.

          This is one way you can look at it. I must agree however I don’t see it this way at all. This Country needs a business man in deed. Just take a look at how well our politicians have balanced our budget. Mr. Trump is very proud of his name we all know that and it’s ok to be proud. I don’t think at all that he is a man that wants to rule the world. I think he is a man that wants to simply “Make America Great, Again.”
          We are all accustom to reading between the lines, that’s why For the first time in my life I will hopefully be voting for Trump along with a 92 year old lady who has read between the lines of phony politicians her entire life.
          I feel Mr. Trump does not need to pave the way for his children they are very self sufficient on their own and they are quite capable to build from and expand their riches just as Mr. Trump expanded his empire from his dad.
          I think that one day trump will hopefully write another book, it will perhaps be even greater than the Art of the deal, perhaps it will be. President Trump’s How I along with the American people made America Great Again”. I wonder how the first chapter will read. Hopefully he will credit the people who never met him and stood behind him and believed in him when his wealthy friends deserted him.

      True confessions: I was a registered Democrat for 35 years and supported Hillary in 2008. I voted for McCain/PALIN and Romney/that other RINO guy. First 2 times I ever voted Republican for POTUS in my life. I now consider myself to be a “conservative.” I listen to Mark Levin. I loathe the establishment of both parties. I would not vote for Hillary or JEB! if my life depended on it. I was pro-choice and am sickened by PP and the videos. On and on. I have changed on everything.

      Do I care if The Donald has changed his positions? NO! The meme that The Donald is not a “conservative” being pushed by the not-so-conservative GOPe crowd is a farce.

He is not Wall St. Capitalist. Hedge fund zero-sum games where there is stacked win-lose in favor of just a few big cash Oligarchs. This is a very important qualifier and distinction when you talk to people about Capitalism. Wall Street Occutards confuse small businesses with these hedge fund, banking, oligarchs who produce no value.

His relationship with Carson and Cruz he keeps bland in public, as do they, that the degree of their cooperation cannot be gauged by their common opposition, the GOPe.

    • The best thing he did was not accept Lemon’s gotcha questions while remaining civil I’m sure Lemon expected questions like weren’t you a democrat and don’t you want to raise taxes to elicit a “what are you, stupid?” kind of response. Instead, Trump did what he does best: He didn’t accept the premise of the question and instead talked it down. Of course I was a democrat, everyone was a democrat in NY. Then I got smart.

      When Lemon pressed him on raising taxes Trump didn’t accept it. Raise taxes? no, no no, our middle class and upper middle class is getting killed. I want lower taxes for them.

      Brilliant interview. Comes off calm, reasonable, and importantly, LIKABLE.

They sent theirs back last year due to this problem. He said they have quit making them in the US & they are coming from China. He told me not to buy Procom & one other one that I have forgotten because they can catch a house on fire.

    I am upset that they even Question Trump about donations. I am an American and if I want to give my money voluntarily to him that is My Business. How insulting is it that he has to continue to explain this to people. Do these people think that the middle class Americans are all morons? Our donations are to support a man in which I feel we can agree represents the Americans that have been left out of the equation for years. The Silent Majority has made it possible for the Super Pacs to have the money by keeping our wages low for years and using illegal immigrants to get richer. I’ve never heard of a Buisness asking its workers “Who do you think we should support in an election.” But they sure do make it possible to spend lavishly to buy the politicians. That money they give politicians could be raises for the people that work for them that help make them rich.
    Trump is wonderful and he is the one we want for President. He is the only one that truly cares for All of us. It would be wise for all of them to know that the middle class in American is huge. In fact if we all sent him a dollar, he could get millions and I think we should all do that and call it the Silent Majority super pax for Americans. We are behind you Mr. Trump and we appreciate you so very much.

  9. Most Trump supporters care about two things:

    Not only stopping but reversing the illegal immigration surge the US has experienced for decades.
    Applying strategic protectionism to bring high-paying jobs back to America.

    For decades both parties have pushed neo-liberal globalization, where masses of illegal immigrants increase the supply of labor while offshoring decreases the demand. The result is lower or at best stagnant wages.

    Since the globalization economic dogma was off-limits for discussions, elections revolved around the four cardinal social issues, God, Gays, Guns, and Abortion. The wealthy insisted on having the workers distracted to fight a long and stalemated Culture War of attrition while the rich were unopposed in their crushing and victorious Class Warfare against average Americans.

    As Marxist as it sounds, what the traitor-to-the-oligarch-class Donald Trump is offering to working and middle class Americans to to turn our attention away from the pointless Culture War and to instead lead us in fighting the Class War against the wealthy by stopping the inshoring of cheap labor and the offshoring of high-paid American jobs.

    Economically Trump is ideologically aligning himself with the American School of economic thinking. He could practically be called a neo-Republican since his views match closely to those of Alexander Hamilton (father of American conservatism) Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, and Teddy Roosevelt, and to some extent, even Ronald Reagan.

    So no one who supports Trump for these reasons gives a rat’s butt about his frankly middle of the road position on social issues or his past relationships with Democrats. What they do care about are his two main economic planks knowing the ultimate result of these policies will indeed be to Make America Great Again.

      • Yes, already Trump’s plan to increase taxes on Wall Street Hedge Funds was brilliant. Not only is it wildly popular, it forces his Hedge Fund-financed opponents to come out of the woods and frontally attack him on what is a losing issue for them.

        Hopefully next Trump will introduce tax policies that reinforce his economic nationalism by giving tax incentives to companies to bring the jobs back to America.

        Pre-globalization, salaries were relatively high so profits were reasonable but not extravagant. Most companies rolled profits back into investment for better and more efficient plant. There was not much left over for speculation so high finance was boring — kind of like a public utility.

        With globalization, wages were massacred and profits soared. There wasn’t much need to new plant so companies were flush with cash, and so speculation became rampant. This is why despite the fact that we have wage deflation, we at the same time have commodity inflation. So the price of food and other commodities can go up at the same time salaries are going down. And that hurts

        What Trump has to do is encourage companies to bring this hot money back into America and to reinvest it into plant here. At the same time he has to discourage speculation and encourage continued local production through tax policy here in the United States.

Given the report that MK’s show was #1 for August I’m afraid they’ll go for ratings over legitimacy.

Morning Joe on MSNBC was also giddy about all of this. They were like little children who couldn’t sit still because they needed to go to the bathroom. I don’t know how they could call anything from Jeb! an attack”. At best, it was mild pin prick. Today they are calling it Operation Backbone. 😉

    Morning Joe has decided this AM that a fair debate ? for TRUMP should be to answer the birther ? They are trying to hang him with everyone who is a non-believer in ancestral homeland and religious upbringing of The Oh?, and we are apparently very dangerous folk.

    My Trumpite response: Really? That’s another stupid MK type of question that has nothing to do with TRUMP being President? 7 years later, after YOUR MAN has DESTROYED OUR COUNTRY, you act like you care who the he is and where he came from. I find that quite rich. I offered a $5M reward for proof, and now you care? After you helped elect him TWICE, regardless of who he was. After you carried his water for the last 7+ years, you want us to think you care. Figure it out yourself. History will prove me right or wrong.

    I might even throw in, Who is alive who can help us answer the Birth Certificate question? No one. They have all died mysterious deaths.

    I bet Sheriff Joe knows, and there will be a reveal at the appropriate time, after the threat of all pardons are off the table.

      This was featured on Don Lemon’s show already, but good to watch again.

      Lemon asked Trump about Jeb’s charge that he is Democrat. As someone said, it’s not current tense any more. I did notice that Trump stated he was hugely influenced by Reagan to remove his New Yorker Democrat indoctrination – and then went on to hint that some are conservatives go the opposite way and become more liberal, and that this is an anomaly as one matures and gains sense. Lol.

      I read a story about the Roe vs Wade initiator who later felt he had sinned greatly and tried to repent when he realized his error. Again, having matured and gained wisdom. A commentor wrote this,

      Ever heard of BErnard Nathanson?

      He was the president of NARAL and largely the reason that Roe V Wade passed.
      In the late 70s something happened to him personally which made him realize that that really was a baby. He had been involved in tens of thousands of abortions, personally.

      When he realized what an evil he had helped pass he not only converted to pro life he converted to Christianity and spent the rest of his life (he died within the last 5 years) instructing our side how to push back against the movement he had grown himself.

      There is an old saying that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged and I have found it to be largely true.

    “The people Obama purged from his Obama Dimocrat Party found themselves politically homeless. Now Donald Trump either by design or sheer luck leads the politically homeless to the Republican Party and the old guard bears its teeth of brass and snarls. ”

    The Donald isn’t stupid. He knows blue collar Democrats have been kicked out of the Democrat party. They didn’t vote for Mittens in 2012. They didn’t trust him at all. The will cross over in the primaries and vote for Trump as they did for Reagan.

    The corrupt gopE knows this too. That’s what scares the living daylights out of them.

    Trump can will the general and the GOP bosses are out of a job.

    That is what all the hysteria is all about.

    Finally got to listen..did it while frying eggplant from my garden!

    It was a solid interview & when given a chance to answer questions from someone who is non-antagonistic, or seeking a gotcha moment, he gives very cogent answers. At times he veered off topic, but Don Lemon circled back and he answered the question. Yes, he sometimes answered via a talking point, but he DOES ANSWER THE QUESTION.

    He did sorta dodge the BLM question, but I think it was the right answer, at this time. I think over time, as he gains black support he can speak to BLM more directly.

    Jeb Bush reminds me of some that try to define what liberalism is vs. conservative. it’s now Conservative to be thinking global warming is a hoax or to allow immigrants in or claiming smaller government which can be applied to almost everything is Conservative. then they claim it goes back to the Constitution which in most cases these make their own rules definers are wrong. It’s also Conservative to bail out the banks. It’s all BS. many people today can’t think for themselves on both sides of the political spectrum. I’m not even sure when it became liberal to support Black Lives Matter or be pro-Trayvon. Jeb Bush is so Conservative he stole millions from the Florida Retirement System. Rubio is Conservative and all the Hispanics praise him as some sort of hero.

      This is America where English is considered the official language!
      However Jeb gives at least one speech a week in Spanish, often way more.
      I can’t help but wonder why someone who appears to care more about the country his wife comes from and probably still has citizenship ties to, is running for the office of President of the United States. Heck according Mexico’s laws Jeb’s children have dual citizenship; Mexican/American citizenship.
      To me this says Jeb is more for the Hispanics than Legal Americans!
