REFERENCE THREAD - Why Trump is a cretin of dubious character, unfit for POTUS

If we could, let's combine in one thread all the info we can on why Donald Trump is not fit to be a president. Please POST LINKS and videos in this thread of examples of The Donald's cretinism:

* Misogynistic comments
* Racist tirades
* Delusions of grandeur
* Ridiculous political views
* Dubious policy ideas
* Lies
* Bad business deals
* Just being a jerk

I'm sure some of Darth Donald's Stormtrumpers will be here to defend him (in vain), but I suggest we ignore them and use this thread to collect and compile examples of his loutishness. There are too many for me to remember, that's why I would love to put them all in one place.

Please put the description of the specific boorish example in your subject line and then include the link or video in the body of your reply. That will make it easier for people to find what they are looking for when using this as a reference tool.

3. Misogynist: Judging women on their appearances

http://nypost.com/2010/11/02/fired-losers-lash-sexist-trump/

Mahsa Saeidi-Azcuy, a former Brooklyn assistant district attorney who was “fired” from NBC’s business game show last Thursday — after first being forced out of her day job for not disclosing her stint on the NBC program — charged that Trump lavishes attention on the women contestants he finds attractive, makes sexist remarks, and asks the male contestants to rate the women.
“So much of the boardroom discussion concerned the appearance of the female contestants — discussing the female contestants’ looks — who he found to be hot,” Saeidi-Azcuy alleged.
“He asked the men to rate the women — he went down the line and asked the guys, ‘Who’s the most beautiful on the women’s team?’ ”
Gene Folkes, a 46-year-old financial adviser who spent a decade in the US Air Force, said he was one of the male contestants who began to squirm when the real-estate magnate turned the subject to the women’s appearance.
“I think it was most uncomfortable when he had one contestant come around the board table and twirl around,” Folkes said.

5. God's gift to women--all Apprentice contestants flirted with him

“All the women on The Apprentice flirted with me — consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected. A sexual dynamic is always present between people, unless you are asexual.” (“Trump: How to Get Rich,” 2004)

6. Women are sexual manipulators

“Women have one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naive or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part.” (“Trump: The Art of the Comeback”)

16. How much did Trump pay Breitbart for favorable coverage?

I wonder if Trump is getting a good return on his bribes

We do not need a reality show star in the White House.

13. A messiah?

I'll give you a dollar if you can come up with something sillier than that. Not really, but damn...

Messiah? For whom? Not for me and not for any progressive that I personally know.

11. Birther conspiracy: Obama is a Muslim, not born in this country, etc.

Too many to log. This link has links to several examples of Trump's birtherism:

14. About half of those apply to most politicians, including HRC

If you want to target Trump, find things that are specific to Trump, not applicable to most people running.

18. And for all that I'd take him in a second over any of the "real" Republicans.

They're all worse, each and every one. Would you really want another fucking BUSH in there? Or absolute idiots like Jindal, Carson or Perry? Or complete nutters like Cruz or Santorum? War mongers like Graham? Business failures like Fiorina?

Hell no. Hell, I might vote for him over Hillary who is just as corrupt, venal and corporate serving as any Republican.
