Trump is the candidate of hope and change.

Trump's supporters don't care what is in his taxes. Also, they already know he is a lying scumbag when it comes to the attacks he makes on Clinton and other people. They are Ok with it. More than Ok. They like it.

These Trump people think they are fighting for their way of life. Fighting. Truth and conscience go out the window.

Liberals need to realize that. Trump's supporters are really mainly just dumb. Just dumb and desperate. They are his Trump University sucker population writ large. He tells them he's going to save them. He sells them hope and change.

It's like watching a great white shark swimming through a herd of tired, hungry seals. Nature taking its course.

Is Trump more of a bigot sympathizer or a liar?

I think he's more of a liar, much more. I don't mind seeing him called out as a bigot, but it's not his biggest problem. His biggest problem is that he is full of shit. A close second is that he is an asshole. After that, yeah, he's definitely bigot bait. But let's not forget his whole list.

Hillary needs a fashion consultant.

I say this from the standpoint of someone who thinks she will make a great president. Hillary needs someone to do a little exterior design on her wardrobe. She can afford to pay for top notch consulting. This whatever-it-was today didn't work. Is that furniture fabric?


Make a list of everything that makes you angry politically.

Then cross off the things on the list that Trump will never change.

Is Trump going to get you nothing?

Post the list. I can't think of a single thing that makes anyone angry that Trump can change. Saying it and doing it are two different things, remember.

Sorry deplorables, Trump's not going to turn America into Russia.

Trump is lying to you, deplorables. You think he's going to turn America into a kind of de facto tyranny ruled by connected thugs. And you hope the thugs are you and your pals. But what you don't understand is: that's just not going to happen. You are being lied to. Trump can't deliver you anything except to the bottom of the heap of wreckage when he crashes the country.

Trump probably doesn't even want a tyranny himself. He just wants to put his name on the list of presidents and make the biggest sales deal of his life. If he wins, he will be swindling the evil, selling bad people less than nothing for a big emotional payday.

We can't let Trump be the only "pack leader"

One unfortunate aspect of leadership is that people define leaders based on them having followers. Ironic, eh? We Dems are so naïve sometimes. We think we should be trying to sell people a better product. We think we should be telling them not to follow a cur like Trump. Sure, we should do those things.

But Trump is doing something Hillary isn't yet doing. Trump is riling up a pack. They are barking for him. He's their alpha deplorable. That's what the "lock her up" stuff is. It's pack mentality bullshit. We Dems don't have that. The good side doesn't have that. We need to get it.

Those deplorables Trump is riling up? They want to eat good America's lunch and spit in its milk. This political fight isn't Hillary's. It's ours. The right thinking people need to look at what Trump is doing and get angry.

Not only is Trump lifting deplorables...he's ganging them up.

The "deplorables" are a legitimate "Willie Horton"

I'm really hoping to see a lot of deplorables in ads going forward. This election is not just about stopping Trump. It's about stopping bad people from getting their way and wrecking the country. Just grab some video of these numbskull deplorables yelling "lock her up"—full frontal footage so the young and Hispanics can get a good look at their faces. You don't even have to have sound. Just the sight of these people will GOTV. The assholes think they are going to win this one.

No they aren't.

We need to run against Trump's deplorables the same way he is running against minorities. It wouldn't hurt to throw in little running against George W. Bush's Republican Congress.

We can't just run against Trump. That plays into his hands. It gets his picture on the front page. We need to see pictures of his bigoted numbskulls, the ones who are deplorable and assholish. The ones no one would like.

WaPo: Middle class incomes had their fastest growth on record last year

Middle-class Americans and the poor enjoyed their best year of economic improvement in decades in 2015, the Census Bureau reported Tuesday, a spike that broke a years-long streak of disappointment for American workers but did not fully repair the damage inflicted by the Great Recession.

Real median household income was $56,500 in 2015, the bureau reported, up from $53,700 in 2014. That 5.2 percent increase was the largest, in percentage terms, recorded by the bureau since it began tracking median income statistics in the 1960s.

In addition, the poverty rate fell by 1.2 percentage points, the steepest decline since 1968. There were 43.1 million Americans in poverty on the year, 3.5 million fewer than in 2014. The share of Americans who lack health insurance continued a years-long decline, falling 1.3 percentage points, to 9.1 percent.

A combination of forces fueled the gains, including an improving job market, low inflation and rising wages, particularly for low-earning workers who may have benefited from state and local initiatives to boost minimum wages.

Sorry, Republicans. I know this must depress you. America's doing well.

Donald Trump from the party of George W. Bush...

...wants to run the country. How can we possibly do worse than that?

This election is about stopping Trump at all costs. That's a given. We can't allow him and his deplorables anywhere near anything but an exit door. They need to be put in their place. If Hispanics and the young show up, that's exactly what will happen.

But this election is also about clobbering Republican George W. Bush's candidates for Congress. We don't need a return to George W. Bush, and we certainly don't need to make it worse by adding Trump to the brew.

Did the country deserve W? Does it deserve Trump?

No. Neither.
