Re Trump and his campaign: It's all political rubbernecking at this point

the prospect of his imploding completely due to his horrible, capering antics, is enjoyable, but I worry that I and others are celebrating his demise too soon.

Beyond that, I worry that we're all becoming so engrossed in Trump's surreal campaign that we're losing the issues for the bizarre spectacle of this unfolding election season.

I don't think he'll win either, but the freak show is a bad thing- engrossing as it may be. cali Aug 2016 #3

By the way, he's just doing the latest Breitbart top headline each day.

Hillary's health
The Iran payment
Now he's going to Louisiana

that says crap, everyone hates yet always lasts until the end.

The Media reports his latest outrageous comment, we react, commentators react… he stays another week.

But he won't win.

We know where they stand on the issues

Let's vote already

I'm not undecided - nothing is going to change at this point

Trump's white noise isn't preventing me from hearing a game changing stance from Hillary

She should stay low profile and let him run his mouth

We just have to keep pointing out what a real jackass he is and count the days
