TRUMP REFUSES TO SUPPORT RYAN, MCCAIN IN THEIR PRIMARIES – PRAISES RYAN OPPONENT
The Donald doesn’t take criticism from anyone, not even from the highest Elected Republican official, House Speaker Paul Ryan. When Ryan spoke out against Trump’s comments regarding the Gold Star Khan family, Trump responded by praising his primary challenger. Now, he is refusing to support Ryan and also John McCain, both of whom had earlier stated their support for Trump. [SEE THAT STORY HERE] Party Unity, anyone? Obviously, Trump cares more about settling scores than silly stuff like that.
MORE HEADS ROLL AT DNC
The CEO of the Democrat National Committee has resigned in the wake of the committee’s hacked email controversy, which revealed favoritism for Hillary, Amy Dacey is the highest-ranking official at the DNC to step aside due to the matter, a senior Democrat official said, but is not the only one. Last week, the party chair, Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced out on the first day of the convention. The emails are believed to have been released by Russian operatives after the DNC was hacked earlier this year. The US has not made an official assessment of responsibility, but has acknowledged that experts agree the hack was committed by hackers working for the Russian military and intelligence. There are rumors of another big release of emails in the near future.
GOOD NEWS FOR TRUMP
Try as we might, we just can’t find any good news for the Donald today. He seems to create a lot of news but it’s mostly negative coverage. Controversy just doesn’t seem to be working for him anymore. Even the meaningless polls and fundraising are going south for him. Also, Hillary has collected the endorsement of every prominent Democrat, including her primary opponents, while Trump has lots of prominent Republicans that want nothing to do with him, and speak out against him. Additionally, Hillary is far better organized, especially in the swing states. She seems to have learned a lot after being out-organized by that community organizer in 2008.
Trump desperately needs a break, such as someone catching Hillary in bed with whoever has Osama Bin Laden’s old job, or doctors finding out that she has an inoperable brain tumor. Something like that may be the only prayer he’s got. Since he has little use for religion, and so probably doesn’t pray, even that is probably out. Maybe the next email leak will contain a “nuclear bomb.” Putin, are you listening? Of course he is. Once a KGB agent…
MORE MEANINGLESS POLLS
No more meaningless polls here. As we have said before, National Polls are worthless because we don’t have a national election. Instead, we have 50 separate state elections to elect “electors” to the Electoral College. Therefore we won’t be reporting any more National Polls. However, state polls, especially in the swing states, do have some meaning, and even more meaning as we get closer to Nov. 8th. Accordingly, from now on we will only be reporting on state polls. Here are the latest:
In this bunch, the one to pay attention to is Pennsylvania. It is one of the big 4 that Trump needs to win. As far as the others are concerned, Georgia is usually safe for Republicans, Nevada is usually a tossup but has few EVs, Oklahoma wouldn’t vote for a Democrat if he found a way to prevent tornadoes, and Virginia should be pretty safe for Hillary with the popular Tim Kaine on the ticket. At least 40 of the states will probably vote the same way they have in the last 4 elections, barring a huge landslide.
NEWSPAPER PUBLISHES NUDE PHOTO OF HILLARY
Not to be outdone by the New York Post publishing nude photos of possible future first lady, Melania Trump, another paper decided to go them one better and publish a nude photo of former First Lady Hillary Clinton. This grossed everyone out badly and Republicans and Democrats alike claimed that it was the worst form of pornography they had ever seen. It could have been a little more tolerable and even somewhat interesting if it had been a nude photo of wanna-be First Gentleman, The Big Dog, because a lot of people always wondered what “distinguishing feature” he had that so many women could identify.
