        The “excuse” I’ve seen is they won’t taint him with this unless and until the lawsuit survives summary judgment. Funny, they have no problem with tainting Hillary for everything under the sun on zero allegations but protect DT until just before a trial. We have a very serious problem with the media in this country.

    Last night this outfit had a early vote poll abd it was great news for Hillary in Florida.this morning and this afternoon the MSN found one thing in the poll and have latched onto it .
    That AA vote is down 1% from 2012 levels.
    That’s it 1%…
    And the media is freaking out.

      The Latino Vote is Up significantly. Early voting isn’t done yet. And if 28% of GOPers are voting for HRC, then she’s in a GREAT shape, logic & math would agree. The News Media just want to Hate On Hillary Clinton. Drive misinformation and make folks question Huge HRC’s advantage.
      Finally, Dems had 83%-87% of AAs votes that gave Bill Clinton a victory in 1992 and in 1996.
      The MSM are not happy that the Comey’s 20Oct16 interferance didn’t derail Mrs. Clinton’s chances.

      Don’t Boo, VOTE! Quoting President Obama. And 08Nov16 will be Victorious.

    That was so awesome! I have not heard one of his rallies lately . This was nice. C-span has had 2 callers either questioning his campaigning for his party’s candidate. One man ( undecided line) complained that POTUS and VP are wasting tax payer money. Yeah, he used a total Dumpster “concern”, but called on the undecided line. The second caller asked if any other president has campaigned for a candidate like this. She sounded old. Are Americans really this dumb dumb about our process? Sorry the other guy does not have the support of the previous republican president.

      NV is tough to poll, large transient population and many that stay under the radar. I trust Harry Reid to deliver this state for Hillary and his successor. No way is he letting it go red:-)

    Well apparently the bigot harassed Katy Tur from NBC/MSNBC today. He turned the crowd on her at one of his rallies about some foolishness about his crowd sizes. #ImWithTur apparently started trending on twitter. This prompted me to look up Katy’s career. What an “interesting” life. She dated Keith Olbermann for three years, rose quickly in the ranks at NBC and her father transitioned to be a women in 2013 (they have an estranged relationship). Her dad (she) is the helicopter pilot who filmed the now infamous OJ Simpson white bronco ride on the freeway in CA. She goes by the name of Zoey Tur.

    I read this article. She has a very simplistic view. I live with these people. I have to listen to them. The press and media have given them more empathy than any other group. They are not economically isolated or hurting. Many of them have two or three vehicles, an RV, take regular trips to the lake, and want to be isolated from those not like themselves. They also believe that Hillary is going to deny them their religion…..how, I don’t know. Living in a red area, I have lost all sympathy for them, and don’t think I need to develop empathy. My rant for today.
    p.s. I know that was not empathetic!!!!!

      Absolutely agree Carolyn! Watched a Dan Rather special the other night on DT voters–or started to, lasted about 20 mins–and could not find a single one to feel empathetic about. They mock anyone slightly different from them, hate them, and want everyone to be exactly like them. They were ridiculing Michelle, PBO, Hillary and saying they were doing it for their children/grandchildren All I could think was: “:Who in their right mind would want to expose their children or grandchildren to this ugliness? To this hatred? To this language?” Obviously, there is a huge gap in this country, but from my viewpoint it isn’t education, race, religion, or the myriad of other factors that the pollsters love to look at. It is basic human decency, kindness, generosity and compassion. You’re for Hillary if you have those qualities and for DT if they mean nothing to you. As President Obama and Michelle have said so beautifully, this election is about our character as a country.

          Yes, this was it. Did you watch it? The people he spoke to were not poor although they talked manufacturing jobs (a few of them). Mostly it was just about wanting things to be the same as they were in the 1950’s. I lost it when some woman started mocking Michelle. But what I can’t get over as a parent and grandparent is thinking it is a good thing to raise your kids with these viewpoints, and wanting to expose them to this ugliness. It is beyond me and it sure doesn’t create any empathy.

            No, I can barely keep up with the goings on each day to have time to view any lengthy videos or podcasts ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

            These deplorables are such hypocrites. They want things to be like the 1950s (i.e., segregation), but they have no respect for other people which is evident in their behavior and their dress.

            Posted this here before, but to me, the girl in this photo looks like she could have been photographed 60 years ago — such loving attention to every detail of her appearance — while DJT supporters look like they’ve just rolled out of bed and thrown on a T-shirt and jeans.

              She’s beautiful, isn’t she? I taped the Rather special, I forget that I can’t stand most of his work these days:-) As to the clothes of the Trump supporters, most of what I see at his rallies I wouldn’t allow in my house due to the language. And again, do these people not realize they are setting examples for their kids and grandkids that they are so concerned about? It’s not just the racism, they also want a hierarchical social structure where men are dominant over women.

              It’s pretty funny with the kids. My grown daughter drives me nuts with her distaste for dressing up for anything, other than work. I am appalled at what she wears for holidays, etc. BUT the one thing I won on is she makes her kids dress even when she won’t:-) She does remember some things from the way she was raised.

                November 2, 2016 at 8:17 pm

                I love the tradition of dressing up, but hardly ever happens now.

                I was in NYC on business in Mar 2002, and was instructed by co-workers to be sure to visit Junior’s Cheesecake in Brooklyn (Flatbush and DeKalb) — which I did, dressed in my California clothes and felt pretty out of place there. I think it was Sunday afternoon, and all the females were quite dressed up — something rarely seen in Cali.

                I enjoyed taking the LIRR while there, and also wanted to taste the original Nathan’s on Coney Island, but Coney Island was closed for the winter. This was before the Internet made things so convenient, and I also wanted to see where the Brooklyn Dodgers played (Ebbets Field, but had no idea where it was. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ).

                Heard this report again on the radio — the #Trumpaloon actually said that she was voting for DJT because moral issues were important to her, and also the “economical issues.” This time the report included a statement from @cbsradionews that the woman was asked whether she though DJT was more moral than HRC, and she said something to effect, “No, but the Republican party is.” This is why uninformed and ignorant Republicans will vote for an actual immoral fraudster. SMH.

          No empathy from me, either, COS. I refuse to empathize with white supremacists and misogynists who are busy promoting discrimination against women and people who are supposedly not pure white Aryans. I am sorry, but most Trump supporters are driven by their belief in white racial supremacy and not by their economic hardships. Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Gulliani, and Trump himself, are all very wealthy Americans. They could care less about poor people. Any poor person who is so stupid to think that the boastful billionaire, Donald Trump, has his interest at heart, does not deserve any empathy from me.
