        I would like to change your sentence to: This is the first of the great First Ladies of the 21st Century. There will be many more like her.

        Got to think positively, and that she is a roll model, not only for all the young girls of our country and the women of color, but for all future First Ladies that will inhabit not only our White House, but also all capital buildings around the world. I’m thinking right now of Sophie Trudeau, Catherine Middleton, and a few others our POTUS has visited during his time in office. Grace, beauty, intelligence, kind heartedness, curiosity, and more exists in all these women.

    GE TODville.

    Gives me an excuse to re-post this (from 2013):

    And speaking of HRC in Los Angeles (posted here earlier):

    This documentary features many luminaries in TODville. From the article:
    “The change of plans comes as DiCaprio, 41, is producing the documentary Before the Flood. The film – which is expected to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 9 – focuses on the effects climate change have on endangered species, ecosystems and native communities; it will feature President Obama, Bill Clinton, Secretary of State John Kerry, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Pope Francis.”

    Fabulous FLOTUS Mitchell Obama! She IS special!!

    They walk among us! GOTV! GOTV! GOTV!

    You wouldn’t think that a black gay man living in heavily Democratic Philadelphia would be a big Donald Trump supporter.

    So, imagine my surprise when over lunch recently, Saleem Khalil Vanderpump – who belongs to all of those groups – told me he had every intention of voting Republican this fall.

      The minutest minuscule poc voters is not the problem, it’s the ‘colored’ ones who will vote for the racist pos that’s the problem.

        I don’t understand…This statement seems contradictory, amk. Correct me if I’m wrong!

        But that aside, from time immemorial, there have always been a handful of blacks and other minority voters who vote stupidly against their interests – but they are not responsible for Republicans being elected. It’s the white majority who send these people to office. Let’s not forget that.

        One black gay guy living in Philly (which is already Clinton territory, election-wise) voting for Trump is not the threat here. It’s the swaths of rural and surburban (and urban) and mostly white voters who on an emotional level resonate with Trump’s bigotry/Xenophobia/Misogyny and will cast their vote accordingly…

        • 29 amk for obama
          August 23, 2016 at 9:54 am

          That’s what I am saying. I put ‘colored’ in quotes for a reason. White is a color.

        • August 23, 2016 at 10:02 am

          To take it further…all this dialogue about who and what and why about Trump is for those white voters who want to feel ok about casting their vote for Trump…

            August 23, 2016 at 10:38 am

            EXACTLY – they’re trying to divert attention away from the true source of the problem and the REAL threat, by focusing on a handful of blacks who may vote differently than expected. In any election you will always find a few Black people (gay people, Latinos, etc) voting for an unlikely candidate. But these voters do not impact the outcome of the election, let alone in a solidly blue district like Philly. This year is nothing new. 1% of Blacks who support Trump will not change the outcome of the election.

      Think I’d go with “satisfied” AMK rather than happy. Another reveal who he is. Remember Michelle’s and Axelrod’s (?) statements about a campaign and presidency reveal who you are.

  20. 45 FoxfireTX
    August 23, 2016 at 12:03 am

    Another great reveal about the great negotiator. I haven’t gone back and checked the docs but saw somewhere this morning that Trump paid his lawyers nearly 6X the amount that the Clinton campaign paid for the month of July. And the Clinton campaign had far more staffers and offices so you’d think their legal expenses would be much higher for lease negotiations, contracts, etc. He sure knows how to negotiate!

    why do I get the feeling that a number of people in the GOP and rightwing media, who have been key propagators of hate, are more likely to end up doing hard time in prison;

    … potential ail birds start with their candidate and include …….

    • 47 globalcitizenlinda
      August 23, 2016 at 7:18 am

      potential jail birds include:

      – Roger Ailes,

      – Paul Manafort,

      – BridgeGate Chris Christie;

      – Person (people) who set up that company which Homegrown- Demagogue Orange Man paid 8 million;

      – retired gen Flynn,


      others ?

        I’m enjoying the Obamas, but I have to say that I don’t think the tenure of “presidents” like Dick Cheney,Nixon and St. Ronnie and others were particularly “good” in the WH. Regardless, I doubt that Trump and his Stepford wife will see the oval office any time soon!

    Saw Hillary on Jimmy Kimmel last night. Did anyone see Morning Joe this morning? Did they say anything about what Trump tweeted yesterday?

    • August 23, 2016 at 1:39 pm

      I saw Morning Joe for a little bit this morning. It seems like he is trying very hard to find something positive to say about Trump. I think Trump got to him.

    So I read that Rob Portman is pretending that DT doesn’t exist and his numbers in Ohio are improving….who’s running against him? They better tie that anchor around his neck (DT) and make him own it!! Why wouldn’t you link Portman to DT? Come on, Ohio Dems…get with it!

      Ted Strickland? Get a move on!

      • August 23, 2016 at 10:12 am

        Strickland is sinking in the polls. Don’t have any idea what kind of campaign he’s running but it’s weak. Anyone here live in that territory who can explain Portman’s popularity?

        • August 23, 2016 at 10:23 am

          He’s not popular. The problem is the immense amount of outside money that has been spent on negative ads for weeks now……not just a couple of weeks but weeks. There have only been a few Strickland ads…..obviously the Democratic powers that be have not yet
          been willing to put money into that race. It’s been very sad.

    The great reward of working hard for Hillary Clinton in the next few months is not only that we’ll get a fine, well-qualified president, but we will be able to wake up every day without hearing about, reading, or seeing an image of Donald Trump. If that isn’t an incentive to give it our all, I don’t know what it. Starting the day with Trump’s words or images is like showering in poisoned water each morning. It stinks and it leaves you feeling unclean!
