      Congratulations, Don! Wouldn’t it be amazing to see the Old Family Dining Room and other improvements Michelle Obama and the White Historical Society have made?

    Vendela Kirsebom, a former Sports Illustrated cover model, told The Daily Mail she had to ask organizers to move her after Trump, who was sitting next to her, continued to make “vulgar” and “sexist” remarks about women’s bodies throughout the night. “He talked about big breasts, small breasts, how one was better than the other and the differences between them,” she recalled. “His main focus was breasts and the sizes of women’s bodies. Fat women were not real women in his opinion. … He basically said if you are not attractive and beautiful, then you don’t have any purpose as a woman.” Vanity Fair editor-in-chief Graydon Carter, who handled seating for the event, said he recalled Kirsebom coming over to him “almost in tears” and begging to be moved to a different table. Trump had spent most of the night assessing women’s bodies and “asking how they measured up to those of other women,” Carter told The Daily Mail.

    Good morning friends. My husband is on a three night, four day hiking/backpacking trip. When he is gone that long, I keep his email cleaned out (lots of junk that we all get) so he is not faced with that when he returns. I also keep open (on his computer) a window that allows me to track his steps. Love this!!!! It’s called SPOT. Anyway, I digress. Earlier this morning, I decided to check his Facebook page. Yuck! Quite a bit of right-wing hate and garbage. There was at least one post of everything Joy Reid has covered this morning: FLOTUS is a hypocrite because of Beyonce (2-3 of those posts), Hillary and Bill–his behavior and her behavior (emails, Benghazi, she’s a liar, criminal,etc.), liberal media is after Trump, blah, blah, blah. There was one guy (a hiker–that’s why my husband is friends w/him) that had posted most of these though there were 4-5 others from different folks–***ALL men btw!! 😦 😦 On the one that had the most, I ended up clicking on ‘hide this post’/see less posts like this.

    I know that my husband does not think and agree with those posts, but it distresses me that I know he sees them and you know it has at least a small subliminal effect on him. As I’ve told you all before, he can’t stomach Trump, but also can’t stand Hillary/the Clintons. Fairly sure he would have voted for Joe Biden, but will never vote for Hillary. Guessing he will be one of those R’s who will not vote. We have no local or state elections of any significance and we are certainly not even close to being a swing state. Will be so glad and relieved when this is over!!

    (((((CHIPS))))) Thank you, NW, for keeping us together.

    I’m starting to worry about the psyche of the white male. First we have an African American President for eight years, and then when you think the coast is clear we’re about to elect the first Female President for presumably eight years. I mean my goodness, it’s a good thing we have the t.v. show “Designated Survivor,” to at least help heal those bruised psyches. I have a theory about this show, I think it was developed and produced to reintroduce America to the idea of a White Male President.

    • October 15, 2016 at 1:33 pm

      Hmmm. Interesting thought, Don. Will say that never entered my mind, but you may be correct. Will be giving that more thought.

      My feeling is that after Nov 9th, the rapist will form his own alt-reich party cleaving away his ‘famous’ base from gopee and after a few months/weeks will ditch the rubes. And the rubes will rant & rot.

        Donald Trump is not a politician or a Republican at heart, he is a businessman and promoter at heart. He will probably form is own party but it won’t last because he’s not a true believer in the Republican way. Mike Pence speaks the Republican language, Trump does not. Sarah Palin and Donald Trump are cut from the same cloth, all flash and no substance. The Republican candidate for President in 2020 will be hell on wheels, trust me, he or she will be polished beyond belief minus the bullshit. The midterms in 2018 will be crucial to the Democratic Party going into 2020.

      This is blatant projection. His whole campaign has been about projection. Trump seriously need to get some help.

      GA SBG.

      This is going to continue on a DAILY basis until Nov 8.

      Agree with COS re: projection, but the most troubling aspect for me is that because broadcast media cling to their “both sides” standards (and hire shallow thinkers) what their audience HEARS is ONLY negative things about HRC.

      Only the negative… IIRC have not heard a single positive statement about HRC on @CBS radio news this year (don’t have TV, have no idea what they’re airing).

      To cite only the latest example (which I heard earlier today):

      • October 15, 2016 at 5:20 pm

        It’s crazy, arapaho415. Trump’s description of HRC at the second debate is the same as what people were saying about him on twitter after the first debate when some wondered if *he* was on drugs.

        It’s been Trump 24/7 again and the coverage is not only getting to the supporters at his rallies but also the supporters who watch MSM. I, for one, am concerned about what the deplorables will do on election day to try to suppress votes, as well as what they will do after Trump loses. The rhetoric is dangerous and the Republican leadership is doing or saying nothing…silence gives consent.

      Since I have no TV, only know what broadcast MSM airs on the radio.

      This story is being covered on the radio, and you can check out @mattdpearce’s twitter timeline from yesterday for local and @latimes reporting.

      I love FLOTUS’ speech. It brings tears to me eyes every time. We need to vote for each other to protect each other. Nothing is more important than a Blue president, a Blue Congress, and Blue Supreme Court. As women, our bodies are on the ballot.

    we need to commend, thank and celebrate the young (and impressionable) people who can process the garbage that the home-grown demagogue is pushing out to corrupt their minds and yet still be to stand up publicly declare that truth is expected of rational decent human beings;

    I keep hearing ” …but the Clinton campaign…problems…thousands of released email…”

    but so far nothing serious about the emails other than sarcasm about what has been read/reviewed.
