Clueless Trump: Putin Is ‘Not Going Into Ukraine’–Which Putin Did TWO YEARS AGO!

We’re all familiar with these axioms:

  • Truth is stranger than fiction
  • Some stories write themselves
  • The dumb seem to get dumber

All of these are on full display today as we dissect an interview Donald Trump gave to ABC News. The host of “This Week,” George Stephanopoulos, asked Trump about whether or not he has ever had a relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which Trump has, on various occasions, both confirmed and denied. Trump responded:

“Well, I don’t know what it means by having a relationship. I mean, he was saying very good things about me. But I don’t have a relationship with him. I didn’t meet him. I haven’t spent time with him. I didn’t have dinner with him. I didn’t– go hiking with him. I don’t know– I– I wouldn’t know him from Adam except I see his picture, and I would know what he looks like.”

Stephanopoulos then asked Trump an important question regarding foreign policy vis a vis Russia: Would Trump, if elected President, allow Putin to take more of Ukraine? He has already annexed Crimea and may want to return all of Ukraine to the Russian orbit. Trump’s response proves just how clueless he is on matters of great import to the United States and the world:

“He’s not going into Ukraine, okay, just so you understand. He’s not gonna go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down. You can take it anywhere you want.”

The ABC host was then forced to remind Trump of the annexation of Crimea two years ago! Which led the Orange Menace to declare:

“But you know, the people of Crimea, from what I’ve heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were. And you have to look at that, also. Now, that was under– just so you understand, that was done under Obama’s administration.”

That, you may realize–unlike Trump–is a favorite talking point from the Kremlin whenever anyone dares to suggest that Crimea was once a part of Ukraine.

Donald Trump is a complete moron who knows less about foreign policy than my dog does. He is totally unfit to be President or even collect the garbage in your neighborhood.

Trump Surrogate Attempts To Defend Him On CNN, Fails Miserably (VIDEO)

The fallout from Donald Trump’s comments regarding the parents of a Muslim Army Captain who gave his life in service to his country continue, and now even Trump’s hateful, moronic surrogates are attempting to defend him, and they are all winding up with egg on their faces, just like the Orange Menace.

A perfect example of this was provided by Scottie Nell Hughes, a shrill and ignorant Trump zombie went on CNN and tried to explain why exactly Trump had told ABC News:

“I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.”

Hughes maintained that the editing of the interview with ABC was to blame for making Trump look like the douchenozzle he is and will be until the day he leaves this planet. Hughes commented:

“But now that I’ve read the questions and the Trump campaign and others have released the full transcript, you can see what a set up this is. Which was nothing but to trap Mr. Trump going forward.”

CNN host Victor Blackwell pushed back at Hughes, reminding her that “What would you say to that father?” is in no way a set up and adding that Hughes must have read the transcript incorrectly.

But this is all perfectly typical of Trump and his acolytes, who will lie, double and triple down on that lie, and then try their damnedest to blame it all on someone else. They are worse than little children who break a window and then start pointing at each other when an adult tries to find the culprit. The main difference is that most children are infinitely more intelligent–and moral–than Trump or his sniveling fans could ever possibly be.

Latest Electoral College Projections Have This Candidate Winning A Landslide In November

Granted, the 2016 Presidential election won’t be held tomorrow, or even next week, but if the trend present in the latest Electoral College projections from several well-known pollsters and election watchers are any indication, the race could be over before the debates are even held.

Larry Sabato’s “Crystal Ball” website has Clinton winning in a massive landslide, with 347 Electoral votes for Clinton and just 191 for Trump.

The Cook Political Report forecast shows a similar trend among Clinton and Trump in a head-to-head matchup: Clinton gets 304 Electoral votes while Trump only manages 190. 270 is the magic number for victory in the Presidential contest.

Looking at more conservative estimates of the race, NBC predicts 255 Electoral College votes for the Democrat and 190 for the Republican. And ABC projects a clear Clinton advantage of 262 to 191.

What does all this mean when you factor in that the campaign is just now getting underway with the conclusion of both conventions? Well, it seems clear that Clinton and the Democrats have several avenues and combinations of states by which they can reach the 270 Electoral votes needed to win. Trump, on the other hand, would have to sweep Florida, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania to even have a chance of reaching 270. He is currently trailing in the latest polls out of Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Florida.

And there remains a great unknown that cannot totally be calculated by polls: How much support will the Green and Libertarian parties siphon off from the two main party contenders? Most political observers believe the total percentage of votes for the third parties combined will not exceed five percent. If that proves to be true, Clinton will be the beneficiary and the next President of the United States.

But three months remain, so today’s predictions can still become tomorrow’s mistaken assumptions.

Post DNC Poll Shows Clinton Got GIANT Convention Bounce

If you’re wondering how successful the Democratic National Convention was for Hillary Clinton, it turns out it was, in the words of her opponent, Donald Trump, YUUUUUUUGE!

A new poll from RABA Research shows that Clinton is the beneficiary of a 10-point convention bounce and now leads Trump by a margin of 15 points.

Among likely voters, Clinton gets 46 percent support to Trump’s 31 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson comes in third with 7 percent, and Jill Stein only manages 2 percent.

In contrast, shortly after the GOP convention ended, RABA found Clinton at 39 percent and Trump garnering 34 percent.

If you look inside the numbers, you can see exactly why Clinton now holds such a commanding lead: She now has a 7-point lead with men (42-35), a 22-point lead with women (50-28), and even earns 14 percent of support from Republican voters. Clinton now leads by double-digits among all age groups.

This is indeed good news for the Clinton camp, but as you can tell from the bus tour they started just a day after the convention ended, they are trying to keep the momentum in their corner and never let up on Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence.

In the weeks ahead, should Clinton maintain or expand this 15-point lead, you can expect Trump to go even more negative. Who knows, he might even beg his good friend Vladimir Putin for some more help.

Conservatives Turn On Ann Coulter For Her Smear Of Muslim Soldier’s Father

On the last night of the Democratic National Convention, two incredibly brave parents–Khazir and Gazala Khan–stepped to the podium to pay tribute to their late son, Army Capt. Humayun S.M. Khan, who gave his life in service of his country in 2004. The Khans also happen to be Muslim, and they wanted to send a powerful message to people like Donald Trump who say Muslims should be banned from the United States. Mr. Khan remarked:

“Hillary Clinton was right when she called my son the best of America. If it was up to Donald Trump, he never would have been in America. Donald Trump consistently smears the character of Muslims. He disrespects other minorities, women, judges, and even his own party leadership. Donald Trump loves to build walls and ban us from this country.”

Khan then looked directly into the camera and directed his comments at Donald Trump:

“Let me ask you, have you even read the U.S. Constitution? I will gladly lend you my copy. You have sacrificed nothing!”

That prompted this incredibly insensitive and hateful response from conservative writer Ann Coulter, who loves Trump and considers him the savior of America:

It should be noted that Coulter misspelled the name of CNN host Fareed Zakaria. And her fellow conservatives were not the least bit amused by her Tweet, so they fired back in strong terms:

Others who have never been fans of Coulter also urged the right wingers to abandon her as they should have done long ago:

Ann Coulter is a hateful snake of a human being who, like Donald Trump, needs to crawl back into the cesspool that spawned her.
