      How in the world did Sunday night’s debate improve Trump’s standing with Republicans. It was a shitshow.

      • October 11, 2016 at 4:13 pm

        That’s one of the reasons we can’t be complacent.

        While I kept hearing about all the Republicans who were withdrawing their endorsement of or support for Trump, I don’t recall hearing “I will not vote for Trump.” They’re hedging their bets. Ryan said they should do all they can to hold on to their House seats. For Republicans, you can bet that means by hook and by crook

        So we can’t assume it’s a done deal until the morning of November 9th.

      • October 11, 2016 at 5:27 pm

        Because he just keeps telling them what they want to hear.This is raw meat to the base and nothing else. They’re mad at Ryan, Cruz, and all the others who have not delivered the white male privileged paradise they were promised.That’s why Ryan can’t go farther and say he won’t vote for him. The base are enraged and unforgiving.

    Donald Trump brags about groping women in a 2005 video, things get ugly at the second 2016 presidential debate, and Xavier Becerra discusses Hillary Clinton’s White House bid. (21:30)

      DT is a thug and VJ need to say it every time he is on television….but he won’t because he won’t be invited back because the white owners of the stations don’t want to offend DT and get sued. I don’t think DT has a snow-balls-chance-in-hell to win a lawsuit ever in his entire life. I pray that once this is over and HRC wins hugely or bigly DT will lose money and never be seen again.

      Van Jones is such a “fair-weather” individual. He claims to be black when he can gain something from it, otherwise, he isn’t. I have ZERO respect for Van Jones and his flip-flopping behind.

    Greetings from Iowa, home of the worst Congressional representatives around. 😦 We’ve been debating something around here and I thought I’d come here for some informed opinion. Mr. Muscatingal says that The Donald will not concede the election on November 8 and will contest the results for the entire month. Mr. M says that only when the Electoral College meets in December. So, does it matter whether The Donald formally concedes the election or not? What can he do to protest the election, other than saying “it’s rigged”??

    • October 11, 2016 at 4:17 pm

      The entire world will LAUGH at him if his polls keep tanking, and Hillz’ keep going up.

      He should also take care – the rigging will be discovered to be Putin’s hackers, paid for by Tiny Fingers Trump.

    • 24 57andfemale
      October 11, 2016 at 4:48 pm

      No, his concession doesn’t matter legally. Yes, he can file suits but there have to be legitimate grounds for suits. He’s litigious enough to try to do it, but I think the bluster will peter out pretty fast.

      But this is why it is vitally important that Dems VOTE, no matter where they live. The stronger the popular vote, the more ridiculous Trump would look. We simply cannot be complacent. Everyone must VOTE.

    • 25 0388jojothecat
      October 11, 2016 at 5:34 pm

      It can only be contested if its really really close but I doubt it will be close if HRC electoral college is way above 270 and there is no way he could get there and the popular vote is large enough no one with any credibility will represent him in court plus the SCOTUS doesn’t have Scalia anymore. I know Roberts won’t risk his legacy on DT.

    • October 11, 2016 at 5:40 pm

      He could try but I don’t think the courts would hear it unless the voting was really really close, and I don’t think that will happen.

    • 28 Wilson Michael
      October 11, 2016 at 8:19 pm

      He would have to contest the results in each of the states where he thinks the votes were close. Which is several states I would imagine.

    There has been speculation that Trump and Bannon are working on a business plan to cash in on the GOP base after the election. But they are now in the business of politics, and the Republican Party is both their mark and market. If Trump was debating Clinton on Sunday night, he surely lost. But Trump and Bannon may well have been debating Ryan and McConnell, not Clinton.

    November is a short horizon. There is money — and much more — to be made from the GOP’s soul. It’s now clearer than ever that Trump and Bannon intend to own it.

    Good day TOD! After the garbage this last week, looking forward to seeing PBO in NC tonight. It is scheduled to be broadcast on c-span2.

    For those who caught the woman, Rebecca Traister, on Chris Hayes’ show last night, she also has written about Sunday’s night debate, the current GOP and misogyny in America. It is the only thing I’ve read that adequately captures my feelings about it:

    “Her victory, if indeed she wins, will be attributed to Trump’s flameout. Little thought will be given to the horror of being a woman who, on her way to the White House, was forced to publicly confront the specter of her husband’s alleged sexual misdeeds. That’s not just about Trump. It’s about a country in which the first women to gain political offices have been the kind we can discern as valuable — wives and daughters, extensions of the men who have held those offices first, men who have had outsize power over women — making the very fraught circumstances of Clinton’s perch a grim historical inevitability. Her circumstances on Sunday night were an almost grotesque manifestation of the forces that have, until now, left us with 43 male presidents, 42 of them white.

    And so on Sunday when Trump said of Hillary that she “has tremendous hate in her heart,” it was a particularly clarifying moment, a signal of the hate he was harboring for Hillary — and perhaps also for the party that had made him and was now freaking out about what they had wrought.

    This is what was on display these last 72 hours: hate. The hate for the other that emanates from his scowling face and undergirds his words, and that has thrummed lightly beneath Republican policy goals for some time, now exposed for the world to see. Trump is channeling the hate of his supporters, inspiring hate in his detractors. This weekend, Donald Trump made America hate again.”

    Trump’s One Public Service Was Exposing the Misogyny of the GOP http://nymag.com/thecut/2016/10/trumps-one-service-was-exposing-the-misogyny-of-the-gop.html

    It’s a long read but well worth it.

    What does Trump mean by “areas?” It’s simple: He means places where black people live and vote, a dog whistle calibrated to an audience of voters who have lived off of a decade of conspiracymongering, from breathless theorizing over the obscure New Black Panthers to hysteria over groups that register voters and bring them to the polls, such as ACORN. And in particular, Trump is speaking to the idea—propagated through conservative media—that Barack Obama stole the 2008 and 2012 elections by using fraud and other nefarious tactics in cities like Philadelphia.

    The most Important Revelation Yet from Hillary’s Hacked Emails! (For real!)

    “One of the wildcards in the 2016 presidential election is the possibility of an “October surprise”: some damning revelation from the Democratic National Committee’s hacked emails that could doom the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. So far nothing too unsavory has emerged. In fact, quite the opposite: we now have solid risotto tips from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, which have been circulating on Twitter this afternoon.”

    Damn it.


    WASHINGTON ― A federal appeals panel ruled on Tuesday that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Wall Street watchdog conceived by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), is unconstitutional.

    Rather than disband the CFPB entirely, a tribunal of judges on the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that the agency will now function under direct oversight of the president, who will have the power to fire the agency’s director at will.

    The decision, if it stands, would likely weaken the CFPB’s effectiveness by subjecting it to the political whims of a less hospitable White House some time in the future.

    U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh wrote in the decision that the CFPB’s “single-director structure” violates the separation of powers specified by the Constitution by vesting one person with vast power “unchecked by the president.” Prior to the decision, the president could only fire the director for very specific reasons.
