They'll go bonkers of they don't take the house. They've gone all-in on this kind of mob-like campaign strategy, they literally have nothing left, if it doesn't work, the snowflakes will implode, and by that, I mean completely implode.

No one will challenge him if he runs again, and they'd have no reason to, he'd delivering on most of promises. The democrats primary challenged Jimmy Carter, because the country was falling apart. That's not happening now. Check your pay-stub and your pension investment returns.

If I thought for a second Trump was the only reason for my retirement plan rise 1 I would be a fool. 2nd It was already going up 0n 9\30 \15 had 106 k 10\22\18 I have 136k my contributions have never changed the only time i have lost money was last month .. So on paper Trump has changed nothing .. As for 200 buck a month From his Tax cut I know I am not seeing that ..

I have much higher expectations from any POTUS.. then what my retirement balance looks like..

congratulations, youíve made the most economically illiterate post in the history of the internet.

trump changed nothing? the tax cuts, the elimination of regulations, amount to Ďnothingí? Apple saying they are adding 20,000 new jobs is nothing?

Why donít you focus your anger on the possibility of the gop screwing with your SoCal security or Medicare.... seems like that will effect you more than focusing on warrens ancestry

Anger??? What anger, I find the whole thing hysterical.

Although it does look like that triggered "someone"

and you brought up the irony of Timing, she pulled this stunt to make Trump look bad, and it back fired on her. She is now a punch line.

I wouldn't say irony
more strategic than ironic

letting the people who can use the tax cut most know about the plan ahead of the mid-term elections is smart if congress is to be able to pass it, so as long as the Right controls, it should pass. I'm not sure why even Democrats would not want tax cuts but everyone makes choices.

The United States Constitution does not exist to grant you rights; those rights are inherent within you. Rather it exists to frame a limited government so that those natural rights can be exercised freely.

It seems the Trump family has been lying about their ancestry for a couple of generations. Donald Trump himself claimed in his book Trump: The Art of the Deal from 1987 that his father came to America as a boy, having emigrated from Sweden.

But it's not true. At least not according to the biographies The Trumps: Three Generations That Built An Empire by Gwenda Blair, and The lost tycoon by Henry Hurt.


In their research into the Trump family, both author's have come to the conclusion that the Swedish origins was just a story invented by Trump's father. During the middle of the 19th century, Trump's true descent - German - was simply bad for business.

ďIn the 1940s, people, especially in the real estate industry in New York, didn't want to hear that somebody was German ó so let's get rid of that. Let's be Swedish,Ē Gwenda Blair said in an inteview with Inside Edition.

According to the New York Times, Donald Trump even asked his father why he had to keep the lie going at the time of writing Trump: the Art of the Deal.


Henry Hurt writes that the reason for continuing the story was to not upset the Jewish tenants of Trump real estate, reports Aftonbladet.

The true story is that Trump's grandparents on his father's side came to America from the German town of Kallstadt in 1905. On his mother's side, Trump's ancestry is Scottish.

"I don't believe there's any Swedish ancestry whatsoever," biographer Gwenda Blair said.

So if Trump did a DNA test and it came back 1/1024th Swedish you'd be OK with his claims then?

for someone who isn't a fan of the "Whataboutism" you came back pretty quickly with a "Whataboutism"

I care more about his total indifference to truth than what his genetic heritage is.

Doesn't fit whataboutism definition, it's a reflection not a deflection.
Trump is the person who politicized the Pocahontas line

He too claimed a heritage that at best was suspect, but that likely he was taught to lie about.

How about the timing of 10,000 immigrants marching towards the border just before the elections? That's a coincidence? Or are 10,000 poor people being used as pawns?
