A frank discussion with Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has reportedly cancelled nearly $1.7 million in televised ads scheduled for the key states of Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio — as well as other buys in Colorado, Iowa, New England and Pennsylvania markets.

This decision coincides with the release of a decade old, open mic spew of vulgarities, for which Trump apologized Friday (video). Still, he was unable to resist impetuously leaving the door open to discuss Bill Clinton’s extramarital escapades.

Too easily distracted, Trump must focus on the needs of our nation.

This tit-for-tat strategy is pure folly. Bill Clinton is not running in this upcoming election. The issues are the enormous debt incurred by Barack Obama, which Hillary Clinton would expand upon as she promises free college tuition and increased benefits. Joblessness is on the rise. Social Security and government-funded health care are unsustainable and must be retooled. The flood of unable to be vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring nations must come to an abrupt end.  Our border must be secured. In these uncertain times, it’s imperative we invest more in defense and rebuilding our military, long neglected by Obama — who prefers bowing to despots, heads of corrupt regimes and Muslim royalty on his global apology tour — to safeguarding American citizens. There is no question beefing up the nation’s deteriorating infrastructure is an issue of foremost importance. We are vulnerable on far too many fronts.

Republicans need to win this election, Mr. Trump. Redefine the perpetual pout and limit the adjectives. We heard you the first time. No need to repeat everything three times.

This isn’t rocket science. Alicia Machado was not the bait you should have taken in the first debate. Neither is attempting to cover your own crude statements by trying to make Bill Clinton’s conduct worse.  This is not a vulgarity contest.

Donald Trump needs to move past these distractions and discuss his vision for America. That’s the only message.

After eight years of the outrageous excesses of Barack Obama, this presidential election should have been a cake walk for Republicans. Instead key endorsers are peeling away and the campaign is on life support. It can be resurrected, but the clock is ticking. Stay on message, Mr. Trump.

We need you.

    My thoughts exactly! Donald Trump was not my first, second or fifteenth choice in the primary. But Americans spoke and he won against a lineup of 16 other candidates. He’s now our nominee and I will support him. His VP choice of Gov. Mike Pence put my apprehensions of Trump at rest. But it’s clear Trump listens to no one except those reckless voices in his own head. This election is the most important in our lifetimes. Hillary is radical, shrill and unhealthy. Tim Kaine, her VP pick is a leftwing zealot who would make Obama appear reasonable if he assumed the presidency. Trump needs to be reined in. Too much is at stake. Not much frightens me. This race does.

  2. Realist says:

    These Real Clear Politics polls were all conducted before the current embarrassment, and Trump was not winning then. Losertarian Gary Johnson (VP running mate William Weld who is already talking about leaving the Party) and Green Party candidate Jill Stein (VP running mate Ajamu Baraka) are nothing but spoilers in the mix to assure Hillary’s victory.

    I cringe at the thought of seeing the polling after Trump’s lewd remarks made the news.

    • azgary says:

      Trump talking like the vast majority of non cuck males do in private is neither stunning nor of any real consequence in the election.

      • No Name Please says:

        I’ve spent my adult life in the rough and tumble world of finance and business. I’m not a powder puff, but I do maintain my dignity and expect that from those who are in my employ. Vulgarity and lewdness has no place in any setting.

        how pious of you.

        you are so much better than the rest of us humans.

        Trump’s Statement: It’s War

      • Maggie says:

        Obviously it makes you feel better about yourself by insulting others who don’t let crudeness and vulgarity run their lives What you say and how you act when you think no one is looking is the true measure of decency. No matter how this is spun, it will negatively impact Donald Trump.

      • azgary says:

        so now trump and most humans who use off color language on occasion “let crudeness and vulgarity run their lives”

        must be nice being perfect

      • Sally Forth says:

        These were the words of a newly married man. Melania obviously deserved better.

        You can’t buy class.

    As part of the Bush family, Billy Bush was taking orders.

    Earlier this week, a red-faced demented looking GW Bush took to the airwaves to tell people to vote. Just one little glaring omission was that he did not say to vote Republican.

    Just last week, GW Bush’s daughter Barbara was in France co-hosting an ex-pat fundraiser for HIllary. And with whome was the young Barbara Bush taking selfies?—-Huma Abedin, of course.
    The muslim Huma Abedin whose mother still publishes a radical Muslim magazine, for which Huma used to write. Huma’s husband is a sex addict who posts lewd photos of himself while their 5 year old son is lying next to him on a bed.
    No Matter, apparently.
    Nothing to see here.

    The audio of Trump and Billy Bush was recorded in 2005.

    How many fraud schemes has HIllary Clinton been involved in between 2005 and the present? How many people have had their lives and careers ruined because she used her power and authority to squash them? What about the lives that have been lost—-Americans left to die—because of Hillary’s decisions.

    She makes no bones about her open borders, open trade stance.
    And she is quoted as having said that there are statements that you make to the public and then there are the things that you believe in private.

    I was looking at the many photos posted today at dailymailonline.com regarding the current scene in Haiti and Cuba.
    Their shanties, their meager belongings once again destroyed and there will be no help from their dictators. If you look at the photos you can see that the Clinton’s charitable foundation sure hasn’t built any shining cities for those people in the past 15 years or any time.

    The man-hater Megyn Kelly, currently of FOX, has been calling for HIllary to appear on her show.
    No doubt that HIllary’s medical team will strap her to a gurney, put her with some medicinal grade cocaine (yes, there is such a thing), and prop her up in Megyn’s television studio.
    We just won’t get to see the part where Megyn kisses HIllary’s . . . . .

    We have to hope that Mr. Trump has learned something in the past 11 years since that statement was made.

    We know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the Clintons have Not cleaned up their diabolical acts, but have instead gotten bolder in their greed and their hatred for true Americans.

    As a Trump supporter, I agree with every word of the SRAZ overview. Even though he’s not a professional politician (which is why he’s the choice for the office), Trump needs to stop giving the evil Left and NeverTrump RINOs ammunition. What happened before last year – things he said as a private citizen – aren’t important. He needs to concentrate on important issues. He’s got a good team behind him (economics, immigration, foreign policy, etc.). He, as the front man, can’t let this whole thing blow up.

    I have to laugh at Paul Ryan cancelling the WI campaign swing today with Trump. Ryan had no problem working with Obama, upsetting conservative Republicans. Then there’s the congressman with all bark and no bite – Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz on Friday night who became the first sitting Republican member of Congress to pull his support of Donald Trump.

    The ones who never liked Trump will still work against him. I hope he’s practicing for the debate/town hall tomorrow night. He needs to look like the successful businessman he is.

  5. William Heuisler says:

    Candy-ass cowards like Crapo do not understand that comparing crude words with crude/obscene/unlawful behavior is a media trick we all should recognize. Remember the Clintons paid $800,000 to one of Bill’s victims and Hillary threatened others to silence them. Remember the Clinton Presidency? Remember the Media mantra? “It’s only sex”, they droned.
    Crapo should also understand what most older married men know quite well: women consider most men “pigs” in their locker-room conversation with other men. This teapot tempest is designed to hurt Trump. What it is really doing is exposing gutless Republicans who don’t mind selling out their country to someone like Hillary.

    Trump camp expands battleground ad budget by $1 million


    Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has expanded its advertising budget in key battleground states by $1 million one month before Election Day, campaign spokesman Jason Miller announced on Friday.

    While ad spending levels in each battleground state will remain roughly the same, the campaign has begun shifting existing ad buys to alternative media markets in crucial swing states like Florida, Ohio and North Carolina, where Trump and Hillary Clinton are running neck-and-neck.

    We are not pulling ads out of the battleground states, that’s absolutely ridiculous,” a source within the campaign told the Washington Examiner, responding to an earlier report that Trump’s team was planning to cancel “hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising” in at least three battleground states.

    “We’ve been analyzing the data every day and are putting our message where it needs to be,” the source explained.


  12. State Delegate says:

    In many ways, Donald Trump has turned out to be the P.T. Barnum of today’s politics. That’s not said as a negative, just an observation. I have every intention of voting for Trump and have a Trump/Pence sign in my yard.

    Yet the similarities can’t be denied. Barnum was also a politician, showman, and businessman. Like Trump who authored “The Art of the Deal,” Phineas T. Barnum, the circus entrepreneur wrote “The Art of Money Getting: Golden Rules for Making Money” a hundred years earlier. Like Trump, Barnum was first a Democrat and then switched to Republican. Unlike Trump, he actually was a politician, elected to two terms in the Connecticut state legislature in the 1860s.

    Two of Barnum’s still worthwhile quotes are:
    1) Every crowd has a silver lining.
    2) There’s a sucker born every minute.

    Startling similarities. Makes me take a second look at the theory of reincarnation!!

    Here’s Barack Hussein Obama discussing the exact same topic. It never impacted him. Wonder why. Could it be the liberal media was poised to support him no matter what he said or did.

  15. East Valley Conservative says:

    This is GOP VP candidate Mike Pence’s brief statement issued today.
    “As a husband and father, I was offended by the words and actions described by Donald Trump in the eleven-year-old video released yesterday. I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them.

    I am grateful that he has expressed remorse and apologized to the American people. We pray for his family and look forward to the opportunity he has to show what is in his heart when he goes before the nation tomorrow night.”

    Pence sounds none too happy to be in this predicament.

  17. Saguaro Sam says:

    It was in 2005, people. Trump was a private citizen.
    Get over it.
    Our country is at stake here.

    LBJ had mistresses, even while in office.
    JFK had mistresses and STD’s.
    Bill Clinton’s actions and deeds would be declared criminal in the real world.

    I have no doubt that Trump wants to save us from going off the cliff with Hillary. He will continue to be sabotaged from all sides.

    It comes down to that.

    I will now be voting kirkpatrick:

    John McCain of Arizona, US Senate

    McCain’s statement read in part:
    Donald Trump’s behavior this week, concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comments about women and his boasts about sexual assaults, make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy. Cindy, with her strong background in human rights and respect for women fully agrees with me in this.
    “Cindy and I will not vote for Donald Trump. I have never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate and we will not vote for Hillary Clinton. We will write in the name of some good conservative Republican who is qualified to be President.

    Wow! Look what’s happening outside of Trump Tower right now

  20. Doc says:

    Folks…It is sadly my opinion that Mr. Trump has SKREWED UP! I realize that it was ’05…doesn’t matter. Now, if the apologetic Mr. Trump has a single Grain of decency, he will call Rience, resign, & Sunday evening, Governor Pence’ll walk out on stange, inform the world that Mr. Trump has stepped aside, & that He’s the (R) New Nominee…then mop th’ stage floor with shrillary’s wig still attached!

    …but NNNNNOOOOOOO!!!!! trump says he’ll NEVER QUIT!!! That’s just dandy.

    • Saguaro Sam says:

      Perhaps you will take a look at the statement issued by
      Mr. and Mrs. Mercer, one of the wealthiest couples in America.
      They have always shunned the limelight and politics, until now.
      Their statement can be found on breitbart.com

      Or, take a look at the lengthy statement published on
      Reverend Franklin Graham’s Facebook page (you do not have to belong to Facebook in order to google his page and read the statement.

      The Mercers and Rev. Graham state clearly that the soul of our country is at stake. Hillary’s positions are clearly opposed to freedom. She says “open borders, open trade”. Tim Kaine says that borders are just “dots on a map”.

      That’s the big picture, and the only one to be considered.

    • azgary says:

      the record number of republican voters who chose Trump to represent the party will not vote for anybody else.

      the gop keeps playing around its a vote for Trump and a straight D vote down ballot.

      but thats fine with the uniparty/gop, with hillary they get a team mate

  21. Retired in Mesa says:

    Not surprised at any of the comments here on this topic. Seems that the kamikazee wing of our party will never concede the obvious — that Trump is a complete disaster for everything we stand for. We will be picking up the pieces of this self-inflicted nightmare for many years to come.

    Pre-debate assignment for Donald Trump: Watch videos of Ronald Reagan. He exhibited good humor, optimism, rational thought and knowledge of the issues before him….all wrapped up in a package of class and often folksy style. He smile was authentic. He never grimaced or sneered. Never saw President Reagan pout. I still miss him. Pay attention, Mr. Trump.
