Trump: Transgenders can use any bathroom

Trump: Transgenders can use any bathroom

Supports Caitlyn Jenner’s right to choose.

https://twitter.com/TODAYshow/status/723125136170213376

Donald Trump was asked on the Today Show which bathroom at Trump Tower Caitlyn Jenner should use.

Trump didn’t limit himself to Caitlyn, and broadly proposed that businesses would be discriminating if they provide a separate (presumably non-gendered) bathroom. Trump also complained that a separate bathroom would be too expensive for businesses.

Here’s the full question and answer:

DONATE

    He could only keep up the act so long, now his campaign is run by one of the most notorious lobbyists for thug dictatorships.

      I expect Don will be clarifying that off the cuff answer.

        Meanwhile, here is Cruz (published March 21,2016) telling us how he will win on the first vote…

        On Special Report tonight, Ted Cruz called John Kasich a spoiler and said his remaining in the race just doesn’t make sense. When asked why he’s staying in, Cruz suggested he may be auditioning to be Trump’s VP.

        Republican establishment warms to Trump after big New York win

        By Steve Holland

        HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (Reuters) – U.S. Republican officials began meeting on Wednesday, a day after Donald Trump’s crushing victory in a New York presidential nominating contest, and said he has been winning growing acceptance within their ranks – but they want to see the billionaire do more to mend fences with the party establishment.

          Republican establishment warms to Trump

          So the GOPe {hearts} the Donald.

          Are you trumpeting this as a good thing, or a bad thing?

          Or just tapdancing around, trying to distract people from the devastating point of the comment you’re replying to?

          Oh, it’s a good thing, Amy. The GOPe either gets on board with their front leader or self-distruct.

          Key to this, Amy, is “[Trump is] winning growing acceptance within their [GOPe] ranks…”

          There is no “ceiling of support” as Cruz stated on March 21st. Trump support is growing.

          So when there are accusations that the GOPe {hearts} Cruz, that’s a bad thing; and when the GOPe comes out and says they {heart} the Donald, that’s a good thing?

          Are you starting to understand why people have trouble taking you guys seriously?

          What? The GOPe has never ‘hearted’ Cruz…

          The GOPe, endorsed Ted as their only weapon to stop Trump.

          Ted is hated by the GOPe. Trump is feared by the GOPe.

          Now, the dawn of inevitability, that #NeverTrump is a flop, has happened.

          There is ‘no ceiling of support’ for Don… there is a ‘ceiling of support’ for them and their #NeverTrump foil, Cruz.

          The lynch pin? Ted now needing more than 100% of remaining delegates to win on the first vote.

          That will not happen and the GOPe has accepted the undeniable.

        What VV is saying is that she knows Trump will have his wet finger to the wind and will be quick to change his position, for now, if his current position is not playing well.

          That is one way to put it.

          Oh, and Rick? Referring to me as VV, instead of VF, did not go unnoticed. I know what you implied.

          Look… I am just a messenger. No need for that sort of sexual attack.

          Whatever floats your boat, Rags.

          It’s pretty juvenile but, hey…

          No need for that sort of sexual attack.

          Be gentle with her. Trump supporters are refined creatures, and accustomed only to gentility and politesse.

          Plus, she may be “bleeding out of her … whatever”, as her man Trump might put it.

          Rick in reply to Rick. | April 21, 2016 at 2:18 pm

          VF: Fine. As I recall, you invoked the appellation game.

    Prescient as usual.

    All is proceeding as I have foreseen…

    Although, now, instead of a song stuck in my head because of you, I hear this raspy, mechanical breathing. Dang you again! Have you no mercy?

    The hotair link needs to be a feature post.

    Give Trump supporters a chance to contort a justification for their candidate’s irrefutable record of a Constitutionally illiterate Outsider who buys the expertise of Insiders.

    Get back to me when you have a story that says Trump is taking millions of dollars from lobbyists to fund his campaign the way Cruz takes millions from Goldman Sachs and the globalist mega donors.

    All you got here is somebody who once represented the president of the phillipines, a guy who died 20 or 30 years ago, is providing some ground game support as an adviser. Whoa how terrible. 20 or 30 years ago this guy I nce worked for tge president of the phillipines. Then you’ve got another adviser who once worked for the evil Koch Brothers. Scarry stuff.

    Like I said, get back to me when you have Trump doing lije Cruz and taking millions of dollars from lobbyists.

      Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 10:13 am

      As between the two men, ONLY Mr. Establishment sold out to crony capitalists…and for a few pitiful caucus votes and the support of the Establishment in Iowa.

      And then lied about his motives.

      I also note your de minimus lies about the Monofart’s history, lying liar who lies.

      But your nature is to lie, so nothing new here.

        Like I said get back to me when you have a story about Trump taking millions from lobbyists the way Cruz already does. Until then all you have is your usual BS from nothingsville.

        I really get a kick out of your hanging on to the pitiful nobody gives a damn spin on the old Iowa corn hill stories.

        If Cruz were really principled he would drop out of race because he has been mathematically eliminated. He said it was a matter of principle when applying that stabdard to Kasich.

      It is not surprising to see Gary Britt minimize his beloved candidate’s flaming liberal position on a liberal-contrived issue that is another step toward destroying our once-great country.

      Trump takes property…

      No doubt about it: Trump is certainly his own lobbyist, stuffing Trump dollars into Big Government Pork Bellied vest pockets, to pay for his membership in the Ruling Class.

      PhillyGuy in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 10:55 am

      Notice nothing is said by these people about the Jeff Roe hire.

      It doesn’t matter. Cruz has no path to a first ballot victory anymore. The party will fall behind Trump as the nominee after he sweeps next week’s primaries. Trump will win on the first ballot. The party outreach efforts by Manafort and Wiley will pay off – allowing insiders access to Trump that they never had.

      Cruz and his Ted Heads can’t seem to see that his candidacy has ended. Ted is out there lying left and right – ruining whatever future he had in the party. He is never going to be the nominee – no matter what his campaign leaks to the media. It’s all fluff now.

      treemusic9989 in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 12:56 pm

      Trump was one of the people buying politicians! The only reason he’s not taking money from crony capitalists is HE’s ONe Of THEM. Also, where’s the evidence that Cruz is bought bar Goldman Sachs? Jus because his wife worked for them? Or because he got a loan from them which he paid off? If that’s the case then Trump must be in cahoots with all of the banks he previously got loans from in order to build his casinos. If that’s your argument it goes both ways.

    Trump sure is pushing back against PC; he is really demonstrating his leadership skills.

    Rags forsee’s things. Does that make Rags another mormon prophet like Cruz ?? Is Rags the John the Baptist to Cruz’s Jesus routine ??

      Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 1:35 pm

      Rags reads, listens, learns and applies simple human nature to predict human behavior. Rags won’t conveniently truncate reality at mid-summer 2015 in favor of a campaign “conservative”.

      Rags also has a pretty fair comprehension of economics, the law, and political reality. This leads Rags to understand and apply cause and effect. This will seem like magic to some idiots.

      Rags also HATES liars and frauds. Rags understands this distinguishes him from some people, so some will call it a flaw.

I am with Curt Schilling on this one.

But, as a caring citizen I can sell interested parties a large polyethylene Trump Porta-Potty Mouth with an ad “absurdum sign” for all comers. I suggest placing it in full view of anxious cross-legged LGBT-ers.

You won’t have to make another expensive change until the next Fundamental Transformation.

Trump also complained that a separate bathroom would be too expensive for businesses.

Not if the government gave the businesses a ‘separate bathroom’ subsidy.

He could issue an EO on day one.

I’m waiting for the Trumpet gallery to help us understand their man’s view on this. We have all known that the man is as phony as a three dollar bill but for some unknown reason, his worshipers have held out hope that we are all wrong. This declaration, like his punishment for women who have an abortion and the “Good things” that Planned Parenthood do are the real Trump’s views. Since he hasn’t answered many other serious questions with such clarity, we have to assume that there are many more of these jewels awaiting discovery. If ANY Republican came out and said these things he would be called a traitor by the base. But not Trump. Why?

    See Gary Britt, above, for your answer: You are demonstrating smallness by asking such a question. You are supposed to discuss only those phony issues that Trump raises. Why haven’t you gotten the message, which has been made so clear that even Hannity understands it?

      Estragon in reply to Rick. | April 21, 2016 at 4:46 pm

      They don’t care what Trump says or does. They haven’t even heard a word since he promised to round up the brown people. They are looking past that, to Jewish bankers and shopkeepers.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 10:19 am

    There is no slur, no bullshit, you will not greedily repeat, is there, lying liar who lies?

    Compare and contrast the NOT T-rumpMedia who have NOT made a big deal of the DOCUMENTED police custody of Der Donald Pare at a KKK rally in Nuevo Ork.

    I’ve never mentioned it because it is dispositive of NOTHING.

    But you’d be sliming it all over these threads, because you are a lying slime pig.

    You know it. Like it. Work at it. And you do it every day.

      Cruz’s refusal to deny his father was passing out leaflets with Lee Harvey Oswald 3 months before Kennedy assassination makes people think its true. Why won’t Cruz deny it?

      That story is every bit as factual and persuasive as your bullcrap aboutva Trump adviser once working for tge president of the phillipines 20 or 30 years ago.

      I’m just responding to your bullcrap.

        Zachary in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 11:11 am

        LOL you’re so pathetic. My God is that a weak attack. I’m for real laughing at you right now.

        Cruz’s refusal to deny his father was passing out leaflets with Lee Harvey Oswald 3 months before Kennedy assassination …

        The fact that you keep repeating that ridiculous meme even after you’ve been comprehensively pantsed over it on this very blog just confirms that you are not a serious person. You’re a troll in the purest sense. Albeit a pantsless one.

        inspectorudy in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 5:04 pm

        But, but what about the five women Cruz was having an affair with? Isn’t that so much more important than his dad 60 years ago? Oh wait!
        Cruz is a liar, like in “Lyin Ted” because Trump said so and then all of you mouthets repeat it everyday, over and over so it must be true right? I’ll bet that in a few days the National Enquirer will come out with a picture of Ted and an alien from Mars shaking hands on the cover. Why don’t you go back just ONE SINGLE year in TRump’s life, not his father’s or his mother’s lives, to see what he was saying then? I dare you, go ahead and look it up.

          “I’ll bet that in a few days the National Enquirer will come out with a picture of Ted and an alien from Mars shaking hands on the cover.”

          Are you trying to say you don’t believe teddy is an alien?

        “There are pictures”

        Of Lee Harvey Oswald and an unidentified male hispanic. In fact my wife’s dad and brothers could be accused of being that person also. I just love how you try to deflect stories about Trump that have proven facts in them with allegations that can’t be proven.

        I’m really surprised that you haven’t mentioned all the times that The Donald has talked about how his uncle was best buds with Jack Ruby and he used to go over to their place and play with his kids all the time. He knew all the Ruby kids. Used to do all sorts of things with them. All the time. Played with Jack Ruby’s kids. All the kid. Lots of fun. Very Patriotic man. One of the best. Great man. Helped with making America great again. All the time. Lots of fun. Very patriotic. That really cements his connection to the murder of JFK. In fact, The Donald and his uncle’s friend Jack Ruby, they called him Mr. Ruby, used to go target shooting together. All the time. Great kids. Great fun. Great American. Let’s make America Great Again. Build the wall.

    ScottTheEngineer in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 12:00 pm

    Exactly how old was Ted Cruz when this supposedly happened? This is way before I was born and Im pretty sure he’s around my age. Posting stupid shit like this is akin to apologizing for slavery or anything else someone did years before you were born.
    I’m not voting for Ted Cruz’s father.

    The biggest handicap Trump has for me is that he’s perfectly ok with seizing private property for business use. That has to tell you something.

Honestly, Trump’s position on the bathrooms is the only one available to take.

The Republicans will not fight for their social issues, so they deserve to lose. The way Georgia got rolled for an inoffensive law was just the beginning.

The alternative path, morally signalling opposition while the Democrats crush you, is disgusting.

    More straw baloney men.

    I am a Christian conservative fighting to maintain a culture of conservative social (and financial) values, values born of a Judeo-Christian worldview, values proven to be of great lasting worth time and again.

    A Trumpian worldview is of no lasting value. It is an adolescent tantrum.

    Trump is a manic political contortionist who is exceedingly desperate to be liked.

    Trump is excess, excessive and exceedingly the wrong moral choice for America on every issue.

        gmac124 in reply to rotten. | April 21, 2016 at 6:53 pm

        That describes Trump to a T. He won’t fight for anything he will just fold like a cheap tent and talk big about something else.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | April 21, 2016 at 10:29 am

I fully expect that if Trump gets the nomination he will run to Hillary’s left to try to pick off Bernie supporters who are angry with her. He knows from the Republican primary that the cult he’s created is impervious to reason. They will stick with him no matter what. So all he has to do is pick off a sizeable chunk of Hillary’s left flank and he can win. It just has to be larger than the conservatives who will: 1) view Hillary as more conservative and vote for her; 2) stay home; or 3) vote Garry Johnson or write in Ted Cruz. In other words, the general election will resemble another Democratic primary – except the Republican establishment who pretend to oppose him now will be trying to help Trump win so they can continue feeding off the largesse.

I just didn’t think he would start exposing himself as a fraud on economic and social conservative issues until the general election campaign started. I guess he believes the nomination is secure so he can start re-inventing his Democrat persona now.

    He’ll have to. The second term of Bush and the McCain Romney fiascos, together with demographic changes primarily driven by immigration, have shrunk the party by 25% in the last ten years.

    He can run to Hillary’s left on Trade and the Iraq war and on campaign finance without compromising issues that conservatives primarily care about.

      casualobserver in reply to rotten. | April 21, 2016 at 10:37 am

      He already does have the Iraq and campaign issues on his platform. I don’t think he has to change much to pull more than his share of Bernie moonbats.

      inspectorudy in reply to rotten. | April 21, 2016 at 5:12 pm

      He doesn’t have to “Run to hillary’s left” because he is already there.

    casualobserver in reply to MaggotAtBroadAndWall. | April 21, 2016 at 10:36 am

    I don’t think he will have to necessarily move left. All he will have to do is continue to talk about things being ‘rigged’ and how Wall Street does need to be more fair like he has. Doesn’t need to get into the Bernie “take their stuff” talk. Many of the Bernie cult simply want to punish people who have done well. I doubt most of them would distinguish between a 5% tax increase or a 50% tax increase. They just want the rich to be the boogeyman.

casualobserver | April 21, 2016 at 10:33 am

The LGBT community has mastered the art of both creating division within the GOP and creating faux-issues that cause the party to lose a few votes. It has been going on for at least a decade, and with the aid of the media is alive and fully productive (for the community). The GOP always takes the bait, too.

This is the weirdest election in my memory. Because Trump is in I at least have some confidence (or is it just hope?) that he can resist all of the false-narrative building from activists. So I REALLY hope this doesn’t become the bathroom election like past elections have been the marriage elections. Or rape elections, or whatever.

    As myself and others commented in the other threads, the progressives attack the social conservatives on these social issues like bullies, because they know the conservatives will not fight back.

    The progressives don’t attack people who will fight back, such as Muslims. Ultimately the progressives do care about money, but when your opponent doesn’t fight back you can have both.

    Republican voters have got to stop virtue signalling and actually fighting for their issues, or they will continually get rolled by bullies. Politicians who will not fight but solicit votes as virtue signalling are despicable scum.

      casualobserver in reply to rotten. | April 21, 2016 at 11:09 am

      Not sure if it is a problem of virtue selling as you say. The GOP has a dichotomy to me. Many want candidates for office to display they are “principled” whenever challenged. Whether that is a good or bad thing (it can go both ways, situation depending), the LGBT activists in particular have leveraged that to their benefit in a big way. And the media is the biggest helper in that. They simply LOVE to ask the gotcha questions requiring the candidate to either look uncommitted or to preen themselves as being principled. And the topics and matters are usually very deftly chosen so the “principled” answer can do damage.

      On another easy target – Notice there are few questions about late term abortion, but plenty about rape and incest. You take the wrong position, and you risk losing all but the most ardent pro-life advocates. And every now and then, a gift is given from idiots like Todd Aiken, to pick one example.

      quiksilverz24 in reply to rotten. | April 21, 2016 at 3:59 pm

      So you concede the point of Trump being nothing but a collectivist lying progressive. If he was a true conservative, the one that can stand up to the establishment media and others, he would take the position of being AGAINST this ludicrous view of bathroom policy. (So sad that we now must refer to Bathroom Policy as a national issue.)

As a father of a 9 year old girl, this is absurd. I stand watch when she goes into a public restroom. Picture is here.

https://m.facebook.com/40855863156/photos/a.249052113156.139288.40855863156/10153600380233157/?type=3

I am now #NeverTrump and #NeverKasich. Their moral cowardice when facing a radical activist agenda will destroy freedom in Anerica. Only Cruz had the common sense and moral courage to stand against this.

Trump plays it exactly right.

It’s almost a rule, if Rags is screaming then Trump is winning ! It’s pretty funny.

I just listened to what Trump actually said: it is a quick, concise, non-inflammatory and sensible position. It’s the best answer I’ve heard on point.

And most of the commentary on this thread has nothing to do with the subject matter of the article.

This is the thing I hate about elections. People lose perspective, and they start ranting about any and everything. I do a lot of scrolling during election season.

    Pretty much my thoughts when I watched the video. Trump merely refused to be drawn into a hypothetical and stated who is using what bathroom hasn’t been a problem yet so no need to pass laws about something tgat isn’t yet a problem. Also no need for law requiring businesses to add a third bathroom since it isn’t a problem yet.

    As you say he was smart not to let them draw him in to this hypothetical debate so the press could spend the next week talking about nothing else. He is thinking about the general election since he is the presumptive nominee.

      quiksilverz24 in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 4:03 pm

      What do you mean “It hasn’t been a problem yet.”

      As if to say the lying liberal mainstream media would voluntarily report on a sexual assault committed by a “Transgender” individual on a female in a women’s restroom.

      Keep lying to yourself, Gary. I guess we all now know what a true Austinite you are…

    But the Collective NEVER will “leave it the way it is”. That’s why NC and other states have pushed back.

Well, here’s another line Trump supporters are comfortable crossing without wavering in their faith one iota.

This is a state and local issue unless and until congress passes a law about bathroom use. No need for presidential candidate to get drawn into this until republicans in congress show they have the backbone to actually pass a law on tbis issue.

What are the odds of gop in congress doing something on this?

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 11:07 am

    Yet, there’s your little yellow god, dipping his oar in the water, and coming a cropper.

    “Leadership”. Key word.

    Plus, that argument is like your LIES about property rights positions not mattering in a POTUS.

    If T-rump is the nominee, he’s the leader of the GOP and the representative of the conservative wing of the political spectrum.

    Or, actually, he’s NOT the latter based on his Collectivism.

    Which is why no conservative can vote for the lying puke.

    Sidestep the issue all you want and dismiss criticism of your god on technicalities, but the fact remains that he–personally–supports it. Personally. That would make a person of reasonable intelligence consider what policies he would support as President and what appointments he would make as President.

    Another Ed in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 6:30 pm

    “…until congress passes a law about bathroom use”?

    Please share with us how bathroom use is relevant to interstate commerce.

      I’m not arguing it is a federal issue. I’m just saying it is a state and local issue and not a Presidential issue unless and until congress tried to pass a law about it.

      As to your specific question, personally I don’t see an interstate commerce power applicable to this, but I’m no expert. Again I’m no expert but possibly it is a civil rights issue under various federal laws and/or the 14th amendment, etc.

You know what, though? Evangelical voters across the south had a choice in the primaries. They made their choice. Let them live with the consequences now. Besides, Trump atoned to his base in this same interview when he said that Andrew Jackson, who had “a great history,” should be left on the $20 and Harriet Tubman should instead be put on the $2 dollar bill (in place of … Thomas Jefferson?), which no one uses. (The “Today” crew should have asked Trump to name one thing about Jackson’s history that he considers “great.” That would have been a fun answer.) Replacing Jackson with Tubman is “pure political correctness,” he claimed, but he’s got it backwards. Removing Jackson from the $20 in favor of Tubman is defensible on the merits, and something many anti-Trump Republicans have received warmly. This image is making the rounds on social media; “Treasury throws founder of the Democratic Party off $20 bill, replaces with gun-toting Republican,” quipped Dave “Iowhawk” Burge. It’s Trump’s transgender answer, which bows to the left’s identity movement du jour expressly from fear of economic reprisals, on the day after ESPN purged Curt Schilling for mocking it, that’s PC. But as usual, he knows his base and understands that defending Jackson would appeal to its various constituencies — Jacksonians, “cultural conservatives” who see any “diversity” gesture as “PC,” traditional reactionaries, and alt-righters. That’ll probably get him off the hook for the transgender answer.
hotair.com/archives/2016/04/21/leave-it-the-way-it-is-trump-opposes-north-carolinas-bathroom-law-for-transgenders/

Yep. Der Donald has a mighty queer idea of what’s “PC”.

Example: “We have to take care of the women”. Which is NOTHING BUT PURE PC, and astoundingly condescending in the bargain.

But more often Trump uses politically incorrectness as an applause line, or as cover for saying ridiculous things. Trump isn’t a politically incorrect warrior. He’s a leftist. He’s always been a leftist. But he slathers that leftism with the gooey incoherent gravy of his “politically incorrectness,” and his supporters cheer.

And that, of course, is the great irony: the same people willing to ignore Trump’s leftism because he’s “politically incorrect” – the same people enraged at the lies of political correctness — are willing to swallow Trump’s biggest lie: that he’s a politically correct warrior, even as he champions increased taxes, abortion clinics, and transgenders peeing next to little girls.
http://www.dailywire.com/news/5141/politically-incorrect-hero-trump-just-embraced-men-ben-shapiro#pq=pjF0uO

I think it may be going too far to say T-rump “champions” those things.

I think that it’s evident he doesn’t mind those things, and you can find lots of evidence all through his life that he’s supported those who DO “champion” those things, maybe out of pure utility, as he sees it.

Or maybe because that’s where his “core” really is.

What exactly is the excitement here? Trans persons have been using whichever bathroom seems most appropriate to them for years. Most of us don’t know about that … and there’s no reason we should. It’s not like there’s a trumpet fanfare every time a person of confused sexual identity has to go.

The physical transition takes a long time. Psychological tests, religious counseling, legal name change, batteries of treatments to eliminate little things like facial hair, a loooooooong time loaded to the eyeballs on drugs, and toward the end, major surgery (usually; not always) … and while this is all going on, we can’t reasonably expect them to “hold it.”

One of the factors that officialdom considers in all this (see “psychological tests” and “religious counseling”, supra) is whether the subject is living day-to-day like a woman (obviously, for m-to-f; I’ve never actually met a f-to-m, though they do exist). And living day-to-day as a woman involves a lot more than avoiding words like “buckshot” and “axle” in day-to-day conversation. At some point during the day, a bathroom does tend to become involved. Fortunately, the business community knows about bathrooms, and already provides them. Since the population concerned is so minuscule, it’s unreasonable to require them to provide dedicated facilities for the confused. So, they use what’s already there … as they’ve been doing for years.

So chill out, already. Jeeez.

As for Trump … I’m not sure where he’s going with the “discriminatory” thing, except in some sense too vague to be of any use. But aside from that? A very sensible answer.

    Ragspierre in reply to tom swift. | April 21, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    More de minimus bullshit.

    “Transgender” only means NOW that some poor pathological biological man or woman…or CHILD…feels that way that day.

    It’ll obviously be used by perverts in a perverse way.

    You aren’t seriously THAT stupid, right, tom?

    “What exactly is the excitement here? Trans persons have been using whichever bathroom seems most appropriate to them for years.”

    If this is so Tom Swift, as you seem to personal knowledge of the matter then “What exactly is the excitement” for the LGBTers?

Just more evidence that the clueless Donald Trump has never, ever lived at ground level. Public restrooms are for the great unwashed masses. You think he cares one iota whether or not your daughter has to share a restroom with the squeakiest of our societal misfits? Trumps don’t shit anywhere but on golden toilet seats with attendants ready to hand them warmed towels. His children will never have to wonder about the freak in the next stall with size 13 Nikes. His position on this matter required no thought whatsoever because he simply doesn’t care. This fool has lived his entire life at penthouse level and he makes no attempt to disguise it. He consistently shows you exactly who he is. He has never been a man for the people and is not one now. He is among the elite of America’s elites with little comprehension of life below the penthouse. He not only doesn’t understand what your best interests are, he doesn’t care.

A.F. Branco needs to do a “Transgender Trump” cartoon. At the GOP convention, have him unzip an elephant costume and the real Trump looks like a donkey.

Rush is reviewing the T-rumpian…

1. touch-back amnesty

2. GLBT permissive position

3. support for higher taxes

Pretty honest and brutal.

    All the old Rags lies. Long ago discredited.

    Cruz’s plan is amnesty amnesty because he won’t round up and deport anybody. They just get to stay.

    Trumps plan to lower taxes is blessed by Laffer and Kudlow. Even Levin said it was good. And it has the advantage of not being insane like Cruz’s tax plan.

      Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 12:44 pm

      I don’t lie, Gaghdad Bob.

      You do. Every day.

      Rush said what he said. He’s just reporting on what Der Donald said.

All these attempts to attack Trump fail miserably. Yet you people keep pushing these same old tired memes that all boild down tobthe same argument you all have been making without effect since last June. When will you learn? Apparently never.

This latest trolling by the professor and the cruzbots still boils down to just the same old “but Trump isn’t a pure conservative”.

Yep that is right Trump isn’t a pure conservative and I have said for 9 months THAT DOESN’T MATTER.

It doesn’t matter because this election is NOT about who is most conservative. That is the election of the past.

This election is about:

BUILDING WALL
SECURING BORDER
DEPORTING ILLEGALS
BRINGING JOBS BACK TO USA BY DUMPING THESE STUPID TRADE DEAL TERMS THAT THE PURISTS LIKE CRUZ LOVE.

As long is only candidate who will save tbis country from invasion which he is, THEN NOTHING ELSE MATTERS.

That is why your arguments and Cruz fail.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 12:41 pm

    Gaghdad Bob Britt goes ALLLLL CAPS in screaming the cataclysm of the T-rump cult.

    T-rump cannot do what he’s been baiting the boobs with these months.

    Not legally. Not politically. Not practically.

    Ted Cruz WILL secure the borders and deport illegals using the law as it exists and as it can readily be changed within political reality.

    Cruz IS a conservative.

    T-rump IS a Collectivist.

      Cruz won’t build wall a Trump wall so he won’t secure border.

      Cruz said he won’t round up and deport anybody. Not eve MS13 gang members that Trump says wiil go first in his round ups.

      Cruz is for Obamatrade and all the stuff stupid purists have used to destroy middle class over last 35 years.

    Wrong. The vital issue is the size and scope of the federal government.

    Question to the Trump cultists: What is the line that Trump needs to cross before you admit you’re wrong? I’d wager six months ago, advocating that transgenders use whatever bathroom they feel like on any given day would be one of those lines. Let’s get some answers up front before he crosses another one and you find yourselves defending the indefensible.

    Trump was at his most “conservative” months ago. As he edges closer to the nomination, he doesn’t have to sell himself to conservatives anymore, and he will begin selling himself to the lefties. Taking a position like this is just a taste of what’s to come.

      That is an issue that is dwarfed by the invasion issue. If the invasion isn’t stopped all other issues are meaningless because our country will cease to exist. Trump is only candidate that will stop invasion. That is why he is immune to everything else.

        It is no surprise that both GBritt and VV attempt to distract rather than address the substance of Trump’s embracing the far leftist position?

          W0X0F in reply to Rick. | April 21, 2016 at 5:00 pm

          No surprise at all. They just follow the day’s crib sheets and collect their pay. Stout little buggers, they are.

        Simply put, you are wrong. Cart before the horse. If the federal government was limited to its proper size and scope, immigration is one (of many) problems that would be corrected.

        Trump has no answers for what ails this country.

          Are you one of the idiots who thinks we can’t have more border patrol agents because that would mean bigger government !! If we don’t have a country left there won’t be any government big or small. There won’t be any freedom either, unless you think no-government anarchy is freedom. I don’t.

          Please explain how smaller government secures the border and builds that wall.

          Ragspierre in reply to windbag. | April 21, 2016 at 3:50 pm

          No, you lying moron.

          We CAN have a secure border. That IS a SMALL government thing.

          What we CANNOT have is a system where “remittances” are “embargoed” and a mass deportation regime is put in place WITHOUT NEW MASSIVE agencies, and against the laws that exist.

          And ALSO against political reality. Sorry, moron. You’ve been baited, boob.

          No, I’m not an idiot. Personal attacks may make you feel good, but they don’t address the issues are hand. And setting up straw men that you slay with ease may increase those feel good moments, but, again, they don’t address the issues at hand.

    Gary, we all know (KNOW!) that you really, really, REALLY want a wall.

    So, we all chipped in to get you some blocks. Now you build your wall Trump style – with your mouth.

Speaking as a woman living in North Carolina, I hope Trump just lost a lot of votes in the upcoming primaries. Seriously? The law cancels the Charlotte ordinance which would have REQUIRED all “public accommodations” in the county to permit men to go into women’s restrooms. This includes schools, gyms, the Y, public swimming pools, churches, synagogues and restaurants. HB2, the new state law, PERMITS facilities to establish unisex restrooms if they want to but prohibits anyone being REQUIRED to do so. If the sign says “Women” that’s what it means.

Latest Polls:

PA Trump +14%

Connecticut Trump +20%

Delaware Trump +37%

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 1:58 pm

    Nobody expects a good conservative to do well in Collectivist-land.

    What a lot of us find very sad is that a NE Collectivist fraud is doing well anywhere by duping voters.

    The growing trend will be voter’s remorse for those T-rump pwnd with his boob bait.

      Build Wall
      Deport Illegals
      Bring Jobs back with good/smart trade deals.

      That’s why he is winning.

      Trump is the only outsider and he will kick the GOPe in the arse. That is why he wins.

      It takes more to be an outsider than to just be an unlikable dick like Cruz.

Some claim to be gender ‘fluid”. Trump is LGBT (and every position) fluid.

This is a riot:

Donald Trump Vs Bernie Sanders Town Hall

It’s like concealed carry. It may or may not already happen.

The issue of merit is if people with transgender/homosexual, transgender/crossover, transsocial/pedophile, etc. orientations are capable of self-moderating behavior/expression to avoid infringement upon other people’s rights.

That said, unless the transgender spectrum disorder represents a progressive condition in society, civilization, or humanity, it is not equivalent and does not represent the same threat as transhuman/abortionist or reactionary, transhuman/cannibal or planner, etc. and needs to be addressed separately.

While human sex is binary and exclusively determined by genetics, gender is a bias with a narrow normal distribution. People should focus on the State-established pro-choice church sponsorship of corruption and dysfunction through avoidance of reconciliation of moral and natural imperatives and its indoctrination of [surviving] Posterity in anti-science, anti-moral, and anti-human causes.

New York State GOP Chairmain Ed Cox came out Thursday morning endorsing GOP frontrunner, business mogul, and fellow New Yorker Donald Trump after he swept the state in the primary on Tuesday.

    Presidents don’t “create jobs”.

    A POTUS can’t fix the nation finances, especially one who has committed to maintaining SS and entitlements.

    T-rump won’t have much of a national defense if he keeps showing his ass WRT the brave men and women who wear the uniform by saying they’ll obey his illegal orders.

    I know that last is beyond your kin, as you never did serve, so take my word for it.

    That is a *FLASHING* GOPe signal that the war on Trump is a no win scenario; that dawg don’t hunt.

    1. Trump has sold out to the GOP establishment
    2. Trump has lied to the voters
    3. Trump says everything, including the wall, is negotiable.

    Why don’t you get back to me when you decide to be intellectually honest and hold ALL of the candidates to the same standard. I know you are an emotionally attached voter so I will not expect anything.

Pat Buchanan: Future of Republican Party Belongs to the Trump Supporters (VIDEO)

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2016/04/pat-buchanan-future-republican-party-belongs-trump-supporters-video/

The town of Johnstown was devastated by floods not once, not twice, but three times in less than a century. Then came the economic wave that washed away the steel industry, and with it a way of life.

Now a backlash is building in the maple-studded hills of southwestern Pennsylvania. Captured in interviews and confirmed in statewide polls, the sentiment is propelling Donald Trump toward the Republican nomination, and possibly even the presidency of the world’s biggest economy.

    Ragspierre in reply to Gary Britt. | April 21, 2016 at 6:15 pm

    Johnstown is dying as a town, and it won’t be coming back because of anything that Der Donald does.

    It really died 25 years ago when BIG stupid steel and BIG stupid unions came up against the hard reality that the world was back in business and the U.S. was in competition again.

    Just like towns in Kansas and Oklahoma are dying because the farming that used to sustain a much larger work-force is much more efficient now.

    America, of course, has adapted. Look up Nucor, which produces steel very competitively in “mini-mills” that are innovative and mostly non-union.

    You might look at dinosaurs dying with a degree of sadness, but the reality of the world was they couldn’t compete. Der Donald can’t suspend the laws of economics, and he’s lying if he tells people in Johnstown he’ll fix their plight.

    He won’t.

      Amy, the bathroom/Locker room issue is about to come to school district on the east coast of Florida. Just wait and watch.

      Also, my gay teen son thinks it is crazy. Go figure. My son did not get the memo.

A man dressed as a woman was just arrested in a Walmart women’s bathroom in Georgia

A Rome man was released on bond after being arrested for allegedly taking his clothes off in front of children in the women’s restroom of Walmart in Calhoun.

According to witnesses, Burnes was found in “stages of undress while on the stone floor and would do this in the presence of several young children.”

Police officers arrived to find Burnes wearing a dark woman’s suit including a short skirt and jacket, black leather coat, black high heals, red nail polish, green eye shadow and women’s jewelry. According to the witness, Burnes had been in the women’s section of the store with his skirt “kicked up showing his white girdle and dark thong underwear.”

But who are we to judge, right Mr. Trump? It’s bigoted and stuff to ask that people with penises stay out of ladies’ rooms and not inflict themselves on women and children.

With Cruz’s campaign now circling the bowel since becoming mathematically eliminated it is only appropriate for Cruz and the cruzbots to be so concerned with bathrooms.

Trump’s new slogan: “Make Clinton President Again”.

Rut Row,

Speaking of Trump’s path to 1237:

New Fox Polls Out Today:

Indiana

Trump +8% Trump 41% Cruz 33% If Trump wins Indiana his path to 1237 becomes almost assured and easy.

California

+27% Trump 49% Cruz 22% The biggest prize of all and Trump is up 27%. Also talk about Trump’s support ceiling. Doesn’t seem to exist now does it.

I have a gay teenage son and here in Florida the transgender bathroom/locker room issue is about to come up in the school district. His take is that those students who identify as transgender should only be allowed in the bathroom that identifies on thieir birth certificate and not open up the door to anyone because they identify as a female one day and a male the next. If my gay teen son thinks this is bad idea, why can’t many adults like Mr. Trump see the same thing?
