    How on earth would you know anything about it? You clearly don't fit that demographic, obviously being in the pre-adolescent category.

    He is an Iranian American, most likely a Muslim if what he says is true here. One self hating Muslim I guess.

    According to NBC's Hallie Jackson, Trump followed advice of allies today and controlled himself more. He endorsed Ryan, McCain and Ayotte after initially refusing to do so. He also gave a speech that's more focused on attacking Clinton and Obama rather than picking random fights.

    I guess this will stop the bleeding a bit, but I wonder how long it will last and how well it will work because

    1) Trump's self-control hasn't lasted very long during this campaign,

    2) He's already behind Hillary, and a lot of the negative perception arising from earlier spats are already baked in-- people won't just forget about them and Team Hillary won't let the people forget, either.

    3) Unless Trump regains the lead, at some point he's going to get a little desperate and start jacking up 3s.

    Will the Japan thing really matter? I mean, the people who care about this are already against him with all that NATO talk earlier. Guess it just hardens people's position.

    Could be a stretch, but I wonder whether the U.S. Olympics performance is gonna affect the mood of voters in this election. I mean, Trump is selling all doom and gloom and "We don't win any more." The Olympics would seem to be off the message.

    Someone needs to photoshop Russia into this. I'm surprised it doesn't exist yet.

    I still think Trump wants to lose. A move like this and the NATO gaffes echoes Obama's retrenchment policies, but it's to an extreme that looks foolish to "moderates" let alone the bellyaching hawks who've B&M'd every "lead from behind" steps the O Admin has taken.

    He'll probably boast to his NY inner circle that he's setting the stage to make Hillary look good even when her moves as president make the rich richer and the poor angrier. As proof, he'll point to the President's skyrocketing approval ratings.
