Donald Trump has 5 kids with 3 different wives?

What would the media say if it were Hillary or even Obama in that scenario? Smell the double standard?

Yes, there is a double standard. Always has been.

2. No shit.

"Baby momma Clinton" "Baby daddy Obama". Didn't they actually CALL Michelle Obama Barack's "baby momma" on Fox?

Vicious double standard.

4. Trump loves women so much he married three of them.

His favorite Bible scripture (not from Two Corinthians) is:
"Be fruitful and multiply" Genesis 1:28

6. So his youngest child is 10, Trump was still making babies at 60.

Sounds like a typical narcissist. Can't have enough "mini-me" "look-a-likes" running around.

Dead in the I-wanna-be-a-congresswoman water.

To be fair to The Donald-J., he hasn't spouted all that pious family values hypocrisy.

21. Trump is without ideology. Psychologists say he

sees EVERYTHING through a filter of how it makes him look good or bad. If it doesn't relate to him, he's not interested. He is as shallow as a spill of water on a table. He likely doesn't care about anything he talked about in his convention speech--because these things aren't about him. They're all words this salesman does know how to use to manipulate his chosen targets, "cards to play."

That's why this 70-year-old with an emotional age arrested some time in childhood is astonishingly ignorant. It's not that he can't learn, it's that he is usually unable to understand the significance of knowledge and care enough to bother. He doesn't know the difference between our president's powers and Putin's in his developing autocracy. He had no idea what Congress did; Ryan and others had to try to explain it. With limited success because of his very limited attention span from lack of interest. He didn't know what NATO was before he had to talk about it, and demonstrably still really, really doesn't understand or care, probably literally couldn't find most NATO nations on a well-labeled map because he doesn't have to do that on a stage. The man who wrote his first book for him says he really doubts Trump would be able to pay attention to a national security briefing, again unless he decided problems between China and Japan were somehow all about him.

As for what he believes, he thinks more nations should have nuclear bombs. Or does he? He must have thought that would make him sound strong when he said it. Now, when he realizes that it makes him sound stupid (or however he interprets that since he's far too superior to be or appear stupid), what does he think?

Yardwork, my question is, why on earth would anyone believe a person with a serious disabling personality disorder, a full basket of strong cluster B traits, would necessarily mean what he said ten minutes later? I suspect you're vastly underestimating just what a shocking, unbelievable thing America has done in nominating this dangerous, dysfunctional clown, cheering it for god's sake, with the whole world watching in horror and/or glee.

23. Oh, gotcha and sorry. :) Many Americans seem to be

way too slowly coming to realize, and others not at all. I know a bunch of people who really have no idea about personality disorders, so your question activated what's obviously become a hair trigger.

24. I misunderstood your earlier post.

I've heard people say that they think Trump is secretly progressive and doesn't really mean the things he says.

He is far, far more dangerous than they know.

Some historians think that George Custer had narcissistic personality disorder.

I can see that. Personality disorders and strong traits of aren't uncommon, of course. With advances of knowledge in so many diverse fields, this must be a great time for historians.

28. They believe him because he is the Republican ticket.

They believe him because he is (in their opinion, not mine) a very successful businessman.
They believe him because he is (in their opinion, not mine) looking out for them and he wants to protect them.
They believe him because he is (in their opinion, not mine) an outsider and not a corrupt politician.

It doesn't matter what the Clinton side say, they have made up their minds, and this accounts for maybe 40% of the electorate already in the bag.

As Nate Silver says, he has a real chance of winning the election. IMO, he is the biggest threat to world security, since the dawn of mankind. Only when I see an average ten point Clinton lead am I going to breathe a sigh of relief, and I expect that in the next few weeks.

30. The press has been incredibly irresponsible. They

know what he is and cooperated entirely in creating the Trump phenomenon. The wheel seems to be turning now, though, with the Republican convention, and it they'll be helping grind Trump up, while at the same time also promoting their horse race excitement based on false equivalency.

But don't forget, most conservatives do not like Trump. It's just that so far they dislike Democrats so much more that they've felt forced to support him. That's going to change for some of them. A young conservative answer when I asked if she'd watched the convention and Trump's speech, "If he's elected we're going to die." This was quite a change from before.

Btw, did you hear about today's unprecedented Washington Post condemnation of Trump? It includes a 5-minute video distillation of his 75-minute acceptance speech.

The Post's View: Donald Trump is a unique threat to American democracy

DONALD J. TRUMP, until now a Republican problem, this week became a challenge the nation must confront and overcome. The real estate tycoon is uniquely unqualified to serve as president, in experience and temperament. He is mounting a campaign of snarl and sneer, not substance. To the extent he has views, they are wrong in their diagnosis of Americaís problems and dangerous in their proposed solutions. Mr. Trumpís politics of denigration and division could strain the bonds that have held a diverse nation together. His contempt for constitutional norms might reveal the nationís two-century-old experiment in checks and balances to be more fragile than we knew.

Any one of these characteristics would be disqualifying; together, they make Mr. Trump a peril. We recognize that this is not the usual moment to make such a statement. In an ordinary election year, we would acknowledge the Republican nominee, move on to the Democratic convention and spend the following months, like other voters, evaluating the candidatesí performance in debates, on the stump and in position papers. This year we will follow the campaign as always, offering honest views on all the candidates. But we cannot salute the Republican nominee or pretend that we might endorse him this fall. A Trump presidency would be dangerous for the nation and the world. ...

The partyís failure of judgment leaves the nationís future where it belongs, in the hands of voters.

33. As a nail bitter, my fingers will be hurting from now to election day. I hope the majority of

newspapers and televised media do the right thing, along with a bigger spend by Democrats to ensure our nightmare never happens and for once and for all, the Republican party is reduced to ruins.

17. "She can raise the kids"

Not ME. Married women love Trump because their husbands do not make enough money (like Trump) to for them to "raise the kids" and they HAVE to work. Wanna buy a bridge as we say around The Donald's neck of the woods.

I do not have amnesia and can remember Ivana halking her wares on QVC and HSN. Guess her husband did not make enough money so she had to work.

Plenty of things to go after Trump for, but if he's not running as a holier-than-thou Bible thumper, I won't hold this against him.
