    The thing is, this ramshackle campaign, following a ramshackle business career, has exposed his flaws and failures to the world and, more importantly, to the people he will brush up against for the rest of his life. To them he is now officially a joke. I suspect he knows this. And if his thin skin on minor matters is any indication, he will be lashing out with even more vitriol. He is a mad jumble of a man, with a slapdash of a campaign and talking points dredged from the dark corners at the bottom of the Internet. I don’t think he will get to the White House, but just the fact that his carny act has gotten so far along the road will leave the path with a permanent orange stain. Trump, more than even the most craven politicians or entertainers, is a bottomless reservoir of need and desire for attention. He lives off crowd approval. And at a certain point that will dim, as it always does to people like him, and the cameras will turn to some other American novelty. When that attention wanes, he will be left with his press clippings, his dyed hair, his fake tan, and those tiny, tiny fingers.

      I hope he is right that he won’t make it to the Whitehouse but hope we recover from the damage Trump has already caused.

      GA LH. Jackie4Obama is right.

      So much damage done, the genie of white supremacy and conspiracy theories favored by the unhinged has been released.

      Especially to our children. Cannot believe that people with children could possibly support DJT.

      This deplorable election has allowed “all the poisons to hatch out” (stolen from I, Claudius):

      In response to this:

    Congrats COS. He is so damned cute. Love our President.

    Hate that I overslept this am; missed attending the town hall…

    Remember when I said that although I opened my home as the Obama’12 Morton/Springfield office, and would do the same for Biden, but NO ONE ELSE?

    Eating some words…

    Meeting with Hil’s county director tomorrow; if they need the space, my doors are open…

    Something to look forward to, another moment to savor next week:

    “ESPN’s The Undefeated will present A Conversation with The President: Sports, Race and Achievement – a student forum with President Barack Obama, on Tuesday, Oct. 11 at 10 p.m. ET (ESPN and WatchESPN) from North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, N.C.

    The one-hour program will be taped earlier that day in front of a live audience consisting of students and invited guests at the Alumni Foundation Event Center on the campus of North Carolina A&T, a leading Historically Black College and University established in 1891. SportsCenter anchor Stan Verrett, a Howard University graduate, will host and moderate the forum.”

    Just watched FLOTUS’ speech in Charlotte. She is fired up, and has incorporated all of the DT errors from the last week, in her very subtle way of course:-) Had me laughing out loud. LOVE her!

    That’s why it’s so important that you make your voice heard. Call your representative. Tweet your Senator. Tell them what matters to you. And in November go vote. Then do it again in the next election, even when the presidency isn’t at stake. Send a clear message that Congress, at the very least, needs to perform its basic, Constitutional responsibilities – and should do much more.

    We didn’t grow from a fledgling nation into the greatest force for good the world has ever known by flouting the institutions that define our democracy. We did it through fidelity to the values of our founding, and an understanding that our American experiment only works when we the people have a say. So do your part, and demand your representatives do theirs. That’s how we’ll carry forward the work of perfecting our Union.

    And he is alive…

    When cops arrived, Coulson began firing at them with a rifle, striking one officer’s duty equipment and uniform, the Carolina Police Department said in a statement.

    Coulson, who is white, then fled on foot, but was quickly apprehended a few blocks away without incident as several local and federal police departments responded to assist. Cops recovered Coulson’s firearm, which a spokesperson described as a “military-style” weapon, according to WECT-TV.

    This time with the Obamas has been so unique, so special for so many people all over this country and the world. They have invited us in, made us feel that this presidency really is ours. Their arms have literally been open to the world. Have we ever known or cared about the birthdays and wedding anniversaries of any other First Couple? Have we ever been so protective of a First Family? They are one of a kind and this presidency is one as well in the best sense of the term. We have been so blessed to be present and aware to witness this time in history.

      My mom lives in Santa Rosa, told me today that her friends hate Trump… but don’t trust Hillary. I had to remind her (of her own life) what it was like to be a woman in the workforce.. climbing the ladder and all the hoohaw she had aimed at her.. so she told me the story of when she became payroll manager- equal to the other male excutives (my mom was the first female exec in this company- in San Francisco actually) another male executive referred to her as a “Junior Executive”. So just reminding her of her own past, brought into perspective a bit clearer the hurdles that have been placed before Hillary, especially the lies designed to cause mistrust.

      Hopefully she’ll remind her friends now that “trusting” Hillary is mostly manufactured BS put out by the bigots.

      Emails – all they’ve got – and why anyone dares mention the Clinton Foundation in light of revelations about the Trump Charity joke is beyond my understanding.

      I can’t watch – it seriously impedes my brain. I’m checking the guardian blog

  65. 125 desertflower

    Pence is squirming and talking over Kaine….learn that from DT?

    • 126 99ts
      October 4, 2016 at 9:22 pm

      From what I’m reading in the guardian – He is full of RW talking points – which are being pointed out as lies. Wonder if any other media will have the same take?

    • 127 jacquelineoboomer
      October 4, 2016 at 9:25 pm

      You can tell by the head shaking and squirming that Pence has been coached. When you’ve been coached because “you got nothing,” it eventually peels away over the course of the debate.

      While Pence speaks and I mute him, I’m imagining that he just finally has it, rips off the mic, curses Trump, and runs out – yelling to his wife, “Honey, meet me in the limo!”

  66. 128 99ts
    October 4, 2016 at 9:19 pm

    Guardian seems to be calling the Pence lies/mistakes

    “In his opening statement, Pence misstated the name of the university hosting the debate. It is Longwood University, not Norwood.”

    “He also said that Barack Obama has raised more taxes to extraordinary levels – this isn’t quite right. ”

    “Kaine drops some history on Pence, telling him that George W Bush negotiated the agreement. “

    I wish Kaine would speak to the fact that the economy has been saved by this administration.

  71. October 4, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Because the DEMS never touted the success of the President…the lie that the economy is struggling….continues to hang over us….the fact is that our economy is stronger than most in the world…

  72. October 4, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    oh he is so utterly fake. Pence is not saddened by cops killing black folks. Not buying this. He can’t even see the racism, let alone fix it. He’s proud of being endorsed by the FOP.
