It's still a funny joke to everyone who actually cares.

The problem that Trump creates is that he is brutally honest and couldn't give less of a fuck what you think about what he says. That's off-putting to career politicians who are used to talking in vaguery and double-speak and it's causing maximum jimmy-rustling.

On top of that, the media loves a sideshow, so they're going to pump him up and milk this for everything it's worth for as long as they can to keep the ratings and viral clips circulating.

I dunno, he's sort of the perfect storm for Hillary. In a field of candidates nobody cares about, he brings drama and name recognition that makes you forget about the seven dwarves, or fifteen or whatever we're up to now.

Also, with Hillary dodging questions and acting pretty much like an evil political robot, Trump's directness (and even his willingness to say some politically stupid shit) makes him seem like a breath of fresh air by comparison.

If only we could have Trump vs Sanders it would be the dream election. Two guys who say what they mean and then stick by it. Imagine it, it would be like seeing a unicorn fight a dragon or something.

People laughed at an actor from California, people laughed at a peanut farmer from Georgia, people laughed at a sax player from Arkansas, people laughed at a mixed race black man with a silly name, and people laughed at one of our greatest presidents born dirt poor in a dirt floor log cabin in the backwoods of this country that belonged to a fringe anti-slavery party at the time the US was heading into civil war. The American people have a long tradition electing people outside of the political mainstream and generally when they do they make good picks. Don't sleep on Trump.

He totally gives a fuck. When he was confronted about his bankruptcies, he reacts like the spoiled petulant child that he is. He blames others, and points out that "everybody's doing it" - no moral compass at all. He's going to be a laugh riot as a president. I can't wait until he's in charge of our nuclear arsenal, and Putin starts pushing his buttons.

Why? The biggest difference between him and other candidates is that he knows he's a scumbag and doesn't try to hide it or apologize for it. Can you imagine what a hilarious shitshow this would be if all the other candidates were as honest?

I think there's a chance of him winning because he's actually the best GOP candidate besides Rand Paul. In a way he's the inevitable conclusion considering the direction the party has been going for so long. Opportunistic old white guy that think's he's richer than he is telling similar uninformed people whatever they want to hear.

The nice thing is that he doesn't seem to have any obvious political masters. As the front runner by the next few combined he told them less than 5 minutes in he didn't need their nomination or support. Then he accused half of them of bribery, as evidenced by him paying them bribes.

I'm gonna call it Sanders v. Trump, 2016. Not because I fully understand the complex dynamics of the current American political landscape, but because I could really use a David v. Goliath allegory right about now.

None of the candidates are strong supporters of freedom or protecting the constitution, and all of them will be bad for the country.

Every. Single. One.

But, I'm actually starting to like Trump, if only because he's running as anti-establishment candidate and it's working for him. It's the 'establishment' that is really destroying the country. The fact that he's also ticking off some SJW types in both parties is just a great big bonus.

I do suspect that he'll be offered a large sum of money to support one of the existing candidates (republican or democrat) and that he will take it... as a good business decision.

If the race ended up being Sanders v. Paul I would have the weirdest boner. I have a gut feeling we're going to get the Trump v. Hillary election we deserve instead though.

Sometimes, in someways. Same with the constitution.

Compared to the stances that his dad has taken, Rand is nearly a neocon (no, he's not a neocon, but he's so far from his dad's freedom/constitutionality positions that he almost looks like one)

I think the lesser of evils right now are:

Right: Paul

Left: Sanders

Pick your poison--or don't pick one at all--but they're probably the least shitty options that could win.

I'd rather have a "douchebag" that will tell the truth than some double-talking corporate shill that will change their stance as soon as the media tells them, or their keepers pay them off.

Trump has so much power right now. If he runs third party it literally guarantees a republican loss. Fox News is trying to help the GOP establishment by squashing him but it looks like it is backfired. I wouldn't be surprised if special interests invested billions into Trumps companies in order to get him to quietly step away.

because they care more about the establishment than the GOP. if they cared about the GOP, they would be supporting the fuck out of its most popular candidate

Why does that guarantee a Republican loss? You're speaking as if Trump doesn't appeal to Democrats too.

He really doesn't appeal to most dems. He has come out against planned parenthood, he said climate change is a hoax, wants to repeal Obamacare and has basically alienated women and minorities. For every democract vote he steals he'd steal ten times as many republican votes.

Did you see his response the the McCain controversy? He pointed out how little Congress has passed actual legislation to take care of the veterans. He took the criticism and threw it back in the commentators face.

Pure gold.

Still never voteing for the guy.

The funny part is that he actually makes good points on a lot of things, but he comes across as a complete asshole and it turns people off. The main problem I have with him isn't his being crude, it's his complete lack of specifics in his plans. You got a solution to a problem we're having and you're not gonna sugar coat it? Great! Let's hear it. But he just rambles on about how awesome he is and doesn't give details.

presidents don't need to know specifics, they need to have VISION, and the ability to attract top talent. he's basically the CEO of the USA as president. no CEO has a meeting where he discusses the pro's and con's of hand towels in the bathroom vs air dryers. there are other people, specialists, that have much knowledge on individual areas. those specialists report to cabinet members who report to the president. he's 15 months out for election, and 17 for being president. he's not going to release a 5 year plan that he wrote on the back of a napkin at his most recent campaign rally. this is how it works. you will get specifics, but is isn't time yet, we have at least 6 months until we start getting specifics. after the nomination, top talent will coalesce into the parties pick and you will get some solid well thought out strategies.
