Tue Nov 8, 2016, 04:24 AM

I believe Trump will give a kind ,respectful, and honorable concession speech..Why?

for one reason only......because whatever is left of his so called "brand" , he will try to save it..

Also, a kind, respectful and honorable concession speech, will be his most watched speech ever. Even though he is having major issues, if he keeps it short and to the point, it could offer him some peace as he tries to recover from this loss.

Perhaps this is wishful thinking, but it makes sense for Trump and his family. In trying to save his name for his family, there might be enough motivation to make this speech an important and remembered one . And if he goes out with "class," it will help everyone to heal. It could be the one time that he did not think totally about himself. (even in the process of saving his name for his children) That would be good for all.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I know this one is kind of odd, but if enough people see this, it could get back to Trump. Perhaps if someone in his staff/or family.. sees something like the above, and talks to him,,,,, it could help us all to heal..,,,

1. Despite all evidence to the contrary, I agree.

I see him coming out, giving a very short thanks to all his staff and supporters and that's it.

This assumes, of course, that nothing crazy happens tomorrow in any of the swing states that allow the Repubs to flip out. But if Hillary wins decisively, and I think she will, I don't think you'll see any of his trademark stupid bluster.

3. One can hope

I appreciated Lady Gaga's comment and admonition last night for us to not hate the Trump supporters. So as we hope that Trump shows grace in defeat, I hope to have a generous heart towards his supporters.

28. I agree.

They will be devastated, just as we would if Hillary lost. Kindness goes a long way.

I am hoping many Trump supporters will have a 'come to Jesus' moment after they recover from Trump fever. Continuing the hatred toward them only helps to maintain the division among us.

4. Some of us won't heal

There's nothing he can say or do to gain my forgiveness. His supporters will never be forgiven by me either.

I am not obligated to make nicey nice with people who hate me.

I will not watch his concession speech. He needs to shut up and never speak in public again. He represents pickup trucks with confederate flags, make America Great Again/Trump Pence decals in NJ. I know what these people are and they are not forgiven.

Watch them riot and protest when his sorry ass loses tonight. They ain't shit, never have been, never will be.

50. Not hating is not the same as not forgiving

Two different things. Hate is poison that makes people stupid. Hating back holds their hatred in place. I don't hate the Trumpsters, because I see that they are truly ignorant and selfish. It's one thing to deplore their stupidity, quite another to hate them personally.

6. possibly...

But that would be his old brand.
The one that is polished and shiny and expensive.
Designed for his old customers, rich people looking for ways to shine.
People that of late seem to be avoiding the old Trump brand.

His new customers are less affluent and more angry.
They follow him and worship at his rallying sermons.
They chant the sacred Wall and Lock hymns and
buy the relics to express their opinions to the world.
People that cannot afford his old brand products.
People that watch tv.

Trumpty DumpTV does not necessarily need
a kind, respectful, and honorable concession speech.

35. Very good points wonderfully stated. Imo, Trump will

be himself. I.e., he will go with his mood of the moment, which is totally unpredictable as the Kremlin belatedly worried--and deny the consequences later.

A third option, both fanning the go-low anger and belatedly posturing on the high road, would be to pose as a dignified statesman victimized by a crooked system. If he's in control of himself, this potentially very profitable one's my best guess.

11. All will be fine, as predicted in this old children's song...

Trumpty Dumpty, built a big wall,
Trumpty Dumpty, will show them all!
And neither endorsers nor congressmen,
know they'd better get behind him just as fast as they can!

Trumpty Dumpty, high on his wall,
Trumpty Dumpty, will make the call!
And all his enforcers, Open Carrying Men,
know itís their turn to make America Great Again!

Trumpty Dumpty, behind his wall,
Trumpty Dumpty's lies spin out of control!
And all for the worse his past just caught up again:
accusers lie big league believe me, we all know i'm innocent!

Trumpty Dumpty, jumps the crumbliní wall,
Trumpty DumpTV will start come this fall!
And all the remorsers, they know by then,
that America was great before their shit hit the fan!

26. One can hope, but here's what I'll be singing (among other things)

Hey Mister Tangerine Man, you are wrong for me
Iím not stupid and you just are not worth listening to
Hey Mister Tangerine Man, you are wrong for me
And when this electionís over, whoís remembering you?

Though Priebus and the right wing empire told you to pound sand
Vlad Putin held your hand
Left Ted Cruz to cry with Rand, both softly weeping
Your ignorance amazes me, it caught me off my feet
And it knocks me from my seat
Like an animal in heat, you still come creeping

Hey Mister Tangerine Man, you are wrong for me
Iím not stupid and you just are not worth listening to
Hey Mister Tangerine Man, you are wrong for me
And when this electionís over, whoís remembering you?

17. He doesn't have it in him.. he'd rather ruin his brand and

have it go deeper into the latrine than concede to Madam President.

But, that's a good point you have on why he should.

20. I have mixed feelings about what he'll do...

Maybe it will be like the debates and Trump will start out pretty steady and seem slightly stable and then lose it as he seems unable to hold things together for very long. Or, maybe he's exhausted and wants to get his life back and start repairing his "brand." Plus, just maybe, deep down, he actually likes Hillary as he was at least friendly with the Clintons in the past, so maybe he's ready to end this weird campaign on a slightly higher note? But I could be way too hopeful as time and time again he's been shockingly abrasive and aggressive and has no concern whatsoever about tradition or dignity, etc.

I guess only time will tell!

22. Wish I shared your optimism...

My best guess is that Trump's toxic ego will not allow him to agree to play (and graciously lose) by any traditional rules or just plain doing what's right for the greater good. Time and again he has pushed fair play aside, like not submitting IRS returns (which has been done for 40 years!).

Betting that he's not going to easily concede, if at all; it's "all rigged" in his mind. A spotlight-hogging, bloviating, trash-entertainment, narcissistic bully can't pass up all the media attention he's gotten. Look for him (and his brainwashed devotees) to be the country's major headache for a long time to come.

Note: I'd love to be proven wrong, though.

and give at least a somewhat bitter concession speech. However, you would hope that they have a good speech writer that helped draft A great one and that he sticks to it.

I'm not sure he will give a concession speech per se. He will lose, and he will give a speech, but he is unable to concede anything.

He will dogwhistle his supporters.
