    Today in Michigan:

    Speaking to a predominantly all-white audience of about 6,000 people, Trump appealed directly to blacks for votes.

    “You live in poverty,” he said. “Your schools are no good. You have no jobs. What the hell do you have to lose?”

    Play-doh?!?!?! THAT was what he did to *help*?!?!?!

      The Governor of Louisiana warned Donald Trump not to visit the flooded disaster area of the state if he was only coming for a photo op, which would have created a traffic jam and diverted law enforcement away from helping with the recovery effort. So instead Trump showed up with a small truck of supplies and proceeded to spend a total of forty-nine seconds handing out those supplies before giving up and leaving. Worse, the “supplies” he handed out to flood victims were cartons of Play-Doh. No, seriously.

      Photos of Donald Trump taken by those on the scene and posted to social media reveal that Donald Trump spent less than a minute handing out supplies – just 49 seconds according to at least one bystander – and he more or less just handed the supplies to Mike Pence the whole time. But in a storyline so strange that it wouldn’t be believable if there weren’t photographic evidence, Trump was literally handing out the children’s toy Play-Doh, as if that were of any help to those people in Louisiana who had just lost their homes or livelihoods to flooding.

        A billionaire handing out play-doh, he couldn’t have brought clothes, shoes, towels, water, diapers, etc., etc., It was a con-artist using a disaster to try to get votes. A photo-op by Trump. Will Trump be taking play-doh to the people on the west coast who are dealing with the fire.

    The entire pdf of the ruling is on this site if anyone wants to get into the particulars. This vile man, who was elected to protect the citizens of this county, has instead, racially profiled its citizens of color, wasted millions of taxpayer dollars, ignored the law and the Constitution that he swore to uphold, and he deserves to be in jail for a good long time. I hope the people of this county wake the hell up, and do NOT elect him again on November. That said, if he IS elected, he might very well be removed from office because of this criminal lawsuit and not be allowed to serve. One way or the other, the evil reign of this POS is just about over. Ya fucking hoo.

    Our beloved Pearl left us at 5:30 this morning, curled next to me as she had been all night, as she faded. She wasn’t in pain. She wasn’t struggling. Her final blessing was to make the decision for us, wrapped in her blanket with the family who she loved and who loved her. As always, Pearl took care of us. We are devastated beyond comprehension.

    • August 20, 2016 at 8:31 am

      I am sorry to hear about your lost. I am sure she felt your love and was at peace.

      So sorry to hear your news 57. Was so hoping she would make it through. Take comfort in how much you loved and looked after her – and she made a decision to save you more pain and sadness.

    • August 20, 2016 at 10:42 am

      So sorry for your loss, 57. Prayers for you and your family.

      57, so very sorry for your loss. There are no words to explain just how much they mean to us. But she will be waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge. Their love and loyalty is never ending.

      Oh 57, I am so sorry to hear about Pearl. She was such a sweetie pie. Our pets seem to always know what is best for us. I’m so glad she spared you the decision you were struggling with. She will be missed, even by us here at TOD, as we loved hearing stories about her.

      So sorry 57. Very glad you were with her at the end of her precious life. Yours was the last voice she heard, the last touch she felt as she crossed the rainbow bridge. Thinking of you during this time.
