    Maybe they were discussing the open Mic. I really have a strong feeling that they intended for that mic to be on. Anyone who thinks that the staff members would forget to unplug the mic u might be played. These people go into much length to protect the president of any scandals.It was a good pr move, all the news networks are playing the open mic clips and the PL are all loving him like never before(fools) calling him tough and strong and that he is back, and most of all the president said he has no regrets about the whole open mic media story. So go figure.

    Chump is doubling down on the birther BS. I hope no one here watches his tv show, and if you do, I hope you plan to stop.

      Lawrence O’Donnell called him out on his show last night, and NBC for allowing him to grandstand for ratings. Chump is on a publicity campaign…and as O’Donnell points out, has absolutely zero credibility as a serious candidate. He really took him to the woodshed….IMO Chump is a shameless, disgraceful waste of skin. Our culture loves to promote such emptiness.

      The Last Word is O’Donnell’s show, I watched the clip on the internet.

        O’Donnell got into the weeds tonight on DT. His theory is that nbc hasn’t renewed for next season and DT is trying to get his ratings up for a renewel. He makes about 4m per season. We’ll know in about 30 days which way that goes. The decision is NOT up to DT.

      He is a clown, a mean spirited clown, an evil clown. Tonight Lawrence O’dennell had that infamous hair raising picture chipsticks uses to scare us. God please make this clown go away sick of his ugly face on my TV screen.

    These same people are always ready to run to “The Jesus Club” when they are running for President, and in the same breath spewing out all of the hate, lies, and evil words which hurts a person personally. Well the Jesus that I have chosen to have as my faith and the teachings of the scripture sure does not ring true to what I see in Mr. Trump and all of the rest of those with these loud voices. Really, where do we equate the love of the Lord, with lies, hate, bitterness. The scriptures say to love, have gentleness, speak kind of each other, pray for your enemies, love your enemies and pray for them, love those who despiteful use you, speak no false witness against your neighbor. I will stop. But it amazes, me how so many of the MSM who announce that “I am a Christian.”, but they do not stop people like Trump when he is spewing all of this hate with what a Christian should be doing. I just do not feel it in my heart, and I do not believe that they are examples of Christ’s love. I apologize to anyone if I have overstepped my boundaries, but I am just so tired of the hypocrites showing up with all of this latest stuff and spewing it out for people who do not think for themselves. Now this is the type of “stuff”, Mr. Trump that is hurting our country. I have never seen our President spew out this type of vile hateful speech toward anyone. Has anyone thought about this in this context: If President is not qualified to be the President of the United States and is lying about his birth certificate, (and he is a Christian) we surely must know as he does, he has to answer to a Higher Power than we are. So everyday he should be shaking in his shoes to be lying before God Almighty. Really in conclusion, Mr. Trump, and all the rest of the crowd need to stop mocking God.

      AS YOU CAN TELL, THE CHUMP IS NOT A HAPPY PERSON…3 MARRAIAGES,KIDS WITH ALL 3 WOMEN…I MEAN LOOK AT HIM!!! DOES HE APPEAR TO BE HAPPY??? HE LOOKS MISERABLE AND QUITE UNHEALTHY
      NOW TAKE A LOOK AT THE PRESIDENT,AS YOU CAN TELL,HE LOOKS HEALTHY, HE IS A HAPPY PERSON,ONE MARRAIGE,LOVING WIFE AND 2 ADORABLE DAUGHTERS. THE PROBLEM WITH THE CHUMP IS HE WANTS THAT WONDERFUL LIFE THAT #44 HAS…TRYING SO HARD TO STEAL HIS JOY!!!
      HE IS ONE SAD INDIVIDUAL…PATHETIC…AND NO,YOU CANT HAVE THE PRESIDENTS LIFE, NOR WILL YOU STEAL HIS JOY!!!
