Below are some excerpts from the most e-mailed article in today's, "The New York Times". It is a sad commentary on Donald Trump, but amusing, if one enjoys black comedy, at the same time. I am sure that is why so so many readers of the newspaper were sending copies of the article to their friends. Go to the link to see the article in its entirety.

"A National Descent Into Trump's Pants"...http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/05/arts/television/a-national-descent-into-trumps-pants.html?mabReward=CTM&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&region=CColumn&module=Recommendation&src=rechp&WT.nav=RecEngine


"Of course, no one made Mr. Trump bring up any part of his body. That he did so on his own points out a key part of his message: bigness.

The prime imperative of Mr. Trump is that he not be made small. He must be yuge! Hence his anatomical defense. Hence his calling Mr. Rubio 'Little Marco.'

(snip)​


It was a passionate argument. But it’s not clear that Mr. Trump and his opponents are even speaking the same language. They attacked him for lies; he answered with size.

Mr. Romney denigrated Mr. Trump for his ideas, his lack of specifics and, above all, his character. He cast him as a déclassé mountebank who bilked students at his Trump University. This was not a serious man for serious times! 'His personal qualities,' Mr. Romney said, 'would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill.'

That’s a damning line against a more traditional candidate, but Mr. Trump would rather build a shining casino on the Strip. He answered back Trump-style. Mr. Romney was a 'loser' who was irrelevant after 2012. Mr. Trump claimed, in terms that may have previewed his raunchy turn at the debate, that the candidate Mr. Romney groveled for his endorsement: 'I could have said, "Mitt, drop to your knees." He would have dropped to his knees.'


Mitt Romney pleaded with Republicans to support a presidential candidate other than Donald Trump, and Mr. Trump swiftly responded.


Just listen to the difference in language, in style, in worldview. Mr. Romney’s speech was high-minded and flowing, quoting presidents and philosophers. Mr. Trump throws sentences like punches. Sentences that repeat. For emphasis, they repeat. Mr. Romney disparages Mr. Trump’s integrity. Mr. Trump visualizes Mr. Romney as, literally, beneath him. Romney: You lack gravitas, sir! Trump: I got your gravitas right here!

In a way, Mr. Romney restored the dynamic that Mr. Trump seemed to be missing ever since his favorite chew toy, Jeb Bush, left the race. At past debates with Mr. Bush, Mr. Trump enjoyed playing Rodney Dangerfield in 'Caddyshack,' the rich boor roaring up on his garish yacht and splashing wake all over the dock. Mr. Romney, decorous and respectable, gave Mr. Trump the chance to Jeb somebody again.

Which is not to say Mr. Trump won the day, or that Mr. Romney did. But Mr. Romney was at least partly arguing for standards that Mr. Trump’s supporters reject. Over and over, they tell reporters, 'He’s just saying what everyone thinks' and 'He says what’s on his mind' — which are not the same thing as 'He always tells the truth' or 'He never contradicts himself.'

Rather, Mr. Trump turns subtext into text, whether it’s about immigration or torture. Republican candidates had sent certain messages to voters for years, and now the party hears them coming back from Mr. Trump translated, or perhaps decoded.(snip)"

Ha well I'll tell you where I think he *does* win in the biggest category. He could be most definitely considered the *biggest* ******* of all the current candidates. :sick:
And that's saying something given the current candidates. ;(

One wonders what our forefathers would say if they but knew how far we've sunk into the mire.

The fact that so many people like Trump is disturbing to me and shows the low that society has sunk to. He is a disgusting pig and not someone I want for my president. There is no morale compass to how people act any longer which is why I rarely go to any big cities.

However, I cannot vote for Clinton as she embodies all that I am against in my core beliefs.

I would have said almost the same, since Clinton isn't any more right for the job than Trump. But I have come to think that Trump must absolutely be stopped, and I seriously doubt that we can do that without taking the (Clinton) bullet.

I predict years from now we'll get used to US presidents who are women.

Eventually, and unfortunately, we'll get a female version of Trump and her boob size will enter the campaign 'conversation'.

Men can be pigs, but so can women.
The stupid voters eat this stuff up. :nono:

The difference is that if "boob" size ever enters the conversation about female presidential candidates, it will have been started been by men. Whereas now penis size entered the conversation due to men. Oh...it's always men. Never mind.

It reminds me of a poem a friend wrote (she's a published author) about a construction office job she once had, and how she imagined that someday the guys would just whip out their little fellas and ask her to get the ruler. :lol:

All of this. Clinton is hiding her corruptness, Trump just throws it all out there for everyone to see and no one seems to mind. It astounds me.
