    Third World leaders usually have the credibility of an officer's military rank from having fought in a war.

    I know Robert Mugabe and let me tell you... :)

    That's true. He has the style and desire, but not the resume.

    They're been fired for running a beautiful, flawless convention. Makes sense.

    I wonder if he thought about adding, "I love blacks" at the end of that.

    I don't know why it bugs me so much but it REALLY irks me that it's almost impossible to tell whether someone is a sincere Trump supporter or is just trolling.

    Trump Called Russia’s Invasion Of Ukraine “So Smart” In 2014


    Donald Trump said in an April 2014 interview that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was “so smart.”
    “Well, he’s done an amazing job of taking the mantle,” Trump said of Russian president Vladimir Putin in an interview with Fox News’ Eric Bolling. “And he’s taken it away from the president, and you look at what he’s doing. And so smart. When you see the riots in a country because they’re hurting the Russians, okay, ‘We’ll go and take it over.’ And he really goes step by step by step, and you have to give him a lot of credit.”
    “Interestingly, I own the Miss Universe pageant,” Trump added. “We just left Moscow. He could not have been nicer. He was so nice and so everything. But you have to give him credit that what he’s doing for that country in terms of their world prestige is very strong.”
    Trump’s praise of Putin has earned him a steady stream of criticism, most recently from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The recent attacks have been fueled by a hack into the Democratic National Committee’s email system which many suspect the Russians are behind, and a comment Trump made last week, when he called on Russia to find Clinton’s 30,000 missing emails.
    On Sunday, when speaking on ABC’s This Week, he said at first that Putin was “not going into Ukraine,” before conceding that “he’s there in a certain way.” Trump also said in the interview that “the people of Crimea, from what I’ve heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were.”
    Those comments echo remarks Trump made in a May 2014 speech to the National Press Club.
    “And another country, wants to come in and join—they love Russia,” he said then. “They say—now we send in our pollsters, we say, ‘That’s not true.’ Well, you know, guess what? They want to form with Russia. How the hell are we involved? Okay, we’re involved in all of this. Isn’t Europe supposed to be involved in this?”
    That April, in a speech at the Freedom Summit, Trump argued that the pro-Russia movement in Crimea was real and not a “setup.”

    “Russia is, like, I mean, they’re really hot stuff,” he said. “And now you have people in the Ukraine, who knows, set up or not, but it can’t all be set up. I mean, they’re marching in favor of joining Russia. I mean, you know, you can send some people in.”
    Meanwhile, in another March 2014 speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference, Trump reiterated his praise for Putin’s intervention in Ukraine, saying it was smart to do it right after the Olympics, which were held that year in Sochi.
    “So he has the Olympics,” Trump said that May. “The day after the Olympics, he starts with Ukraine. The day after. How smart? You know, he didn’t want to do it during the Olympics. Boom. The day after. So our athletes leave, we all leave, and the day after. And you know, when he goes in and takes Crimea, he’s taking the heart and soul because that’s where all the money is. I was surprised. I heard that the other day. They were saying, most of the wealth comes right from that area.”
    “That’s the area with the wealth,” Trump continued. “So that means the rest of Ukraine will fall and it’s predicted to fall fairly quickly. Because without the money, it’s like this country. If we don’t make this country great, it’s gonna fall. It’s gonna really fall. It’s already falling. You go into our airports, you go look at our bridges, you look at our roadways, we’re becoming a third-world country. So when you see what they’re doing in Ukraine, it’s just a question of time.”

    The VFW piling on Comrade Trump.


    Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has a history of lashing out after being attacked, but to ridicule a Gold Star Mother is out-of-bounds, said the new national commander of the near 1.7 million-member Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States and its Auxiliary.

    “Election year or not, the VFW will not tolerate anyone berating a Gold Star family member for exercising his or her right of speech or expression,” said Brian Duffy, of Louisville, Ky., who was elected July 27 to lead the nation’s oldest and largest major war veterans organization. There are certain sacrosanct subjects that no amount of wordsmithing can repair once crossed. Giving one’s life to nation is the greatest sacrifice, followed closely by all Gold Star families, who have a right to make their voices heard.”

    Well, except for posting false crime statistics that blacks are far more violent than whites by 25 times. There are a few other things as well he's said.

    LOL... Trump said nothing offensive to black people? Who died and made you Trumpers the judge of whether things are offensive to black people or anyone else?


    http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/18/politics/donald-trump-black-lives-matter/


    There is a good reason why he is polling near zero among black people, and lower numbers than past Republicans among every other non-white ethnic group. Many of us are smart enough to know that when he and his white nationalist supporters talk **** about one minority group, you people are eventually coming after all of us.
