Derpnado!!! (infamous Trumpkin spins findings of infamous exit poll theorist)


Trump advocate Roger Stone has a new op-ed out in The Hill newspaper that sounds the alarm bell on a rigged election and continues to set the stage for conspiracy theories to abound if Hillary Clinton does indeed win the White House in November. He even claims some primary election states where Trump lost were rigged.


In his op-ed Stone casts doubt on electronic voting technology and claims that voter fraud already occurred in the Republican primary at the hands of Republican leaders like Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and the "Reince Priebus machine."

...

Stone said the primary election in which John Kasich (R-OH) won in his home state of Ohio was rigged.

"This year, the results of machines in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Ohio, where Governor John Kasich controls the machines, must be matched with exit polls, for example," Stone wrote.

Stone accused RNC Chairman Reince Priebus of rigging the election in Wisconsin.

"Nowhere in the country has this been more true than Wisconsin, where there is irrefutable evidence that Scott Walker and the Reince Priebus machine rigged as many as five elections including the defeat of a Walker recall election. Mathematician and voting statistic expert Richard Charnin has produced a compelling study by comparing polling to actual results and exit polls to make a compelling case for voting machine manipulation in the Badger state," Stone said.

Truth is all you need to counter such nonsense.

Why it doesn't really matter what Trump meant to say.

Everyone thought it was conceivable that he'd go there.

He's the type of person who could make that kind of statement, and mean it.

Unfit for office.

No Pivot Here: Trump Asks, Why Would I Tone It Down When I'm 'Winning?'

The self-deception is really astonishing

"I think that you know my temperament has gotten me here. I've always had a good temperament and it's gotten me here," Trump said in an interview with Fox Business, according to a transcript of the appearance. "I certainly don't think it is appropriate to start changing all of a sudden when you have been winning."

anti-Trump Republicans declare war on Sean "Lumpy" Hannity

http://www.mediaite.com/online/wsj-editor-keeps-feud-with-huckster-hannity-going-is-he-stupid-or-dishonest/

Hannity, possibly because of all those polls showing Trump behind, has recently taken to saying that the Republican establishment and people like Stephens will be to blame if Trump loses. (And not, y’know, Trump himself or people like Hannity who have been unapologetic boosters of his candidacy.)

Stephens gets things started in his column tonight (titled “Sean Hannity’s Veneration of Ignorance”) by saying “Mr. Hannity has never made a secret of his feelings for Mr. Trump, which is the love that dares to speak its name.”

He likens him to a cult member, says he’s the kind of “political huckster” that puts Al Sharpton to shame, and even said that Hannity’s responses to him show “he can’t even swear competently.”


Pig pile on Lumpy!

Some anti-Trump conservatives have already started weighing in on Twitter, and New York Times columnist Ross Douthat supplemented Stephens’ column with this tweetstorm:

What he's embraced is just Trump -- for the same reason he embraces *whatever* force seems most powerful in the GOP. Because he's a hack.


...

Hannity has been a Bush-worshiper, a Tea Partier, a born-again immigration reformer, a Tea Partier again, now a Trumpist.


...

The only thru-line: Power worship and ratings chasing.

Birds of a feather, comrades in arms.

When Birther Melania will be off-limits for critics of her husband:

when Crazy Donald Trump and his surrogates stop calling Hillary Clinton's spouse a 'rapist' and accusing her of enabling whatever the hell it is he did in his personal life.

Not until then.

Crazy Donald has no standing to object to Birther Melania getting tagged over her apparently fraudulent conduct while he goes after Hillary Clinton's spouse.

Period.

If Crazy Donald complains about this, he should be reminded that he has treated Hillary Clinton's spouse as fair game, and what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

if he agrees to STFU about Hillary's spouse, then his spouse may be considered off-limits too.

Pence refuses to endorse McCain and Ayotte--how soon before he's doing Trump's laundry?

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/mike-pence-declines-endorse-john-mccain-kelly-ayotte/story?id=41127389

Siding with his running mate, Mike Pence on Thursday declined to endorse John McCain and Kelly Ayotte in their upcoming reelection bids.

"I look forward to supporting Republican candidates in the days and weeks ahead all over the country, and so does Donald Trump," McCain told traveling press aboard his plane when asked point blank if he would endorse McCain and Ayotte.

"To restore our country at home and abroad, we need new leadership, and I'm looking forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with Donald Trump to drive that new leadership forward," he added.

The Indiana governor's non-endorsement quickly got some blowback. John Weaver, a former McCain aide (who more recently ran John Kasich's campaign), tweeted that McCain campaigned for Pence when he was “desperate.”

"I remember traveling with John McCain to Indiana to campaign for, several times, for a desperate Mike Pence. Shame on him," Weaver tweeted.

...

At a rally on Thursday, Trump said Pence had called him to ask for his permission to endorse Ryan.

"I say, 'Mike, you like him, yes. Go ahead and do it. 100 percent.' And he endorsed him," Trump said.


The stench of Trump will never wash off him.

I think Trump is trying to destroy the GOP, like a virus that kills its host.

Feel the unity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Donald Trump Can Go to Hell and If You Defend His Statement, So Can You.

(the person who wrote this is an extremely conservative writer who's always been #NeverTrump)

http://theresurgent.com/donald-trump-can-go-to-hell-and-if-you-defend-this-so-can-you/

I must apologize, but I have reached that point with this news and it now pushes me beyond contempt into outright hatred and moral indignation against those of you continuing to defend this monster.

That is Donald Trump asking if NATO countries “have paid” if they want American protection from a potential Russian invasion.

Do you people supporting Trump know the only time NATO has ever invoked Article 5 of the 1949 Washington Treaty that established NATO? That’s the article that recognizes an attack on one NATO ally as an attack on all NATO allies requiring defense.

Do you Cheeto Jesus worshipping fools have any idea? Your orange god, of all people, should know.

The only time NATO has ever invoked Article 5 and rushed to the aid of a NATO ally in response to an attack was on September 11, 2001. On that day, monsters murdered 2,977 people in New York City; Washington, DC; and Shanksville, PA.

Almost 3,000 Americans were murdered by monsters and our NATO allies for the first time in the history of the NATO Alliance rose as one and defended American airspace and American interests around the entire freaking world while we wrestled with what had happened.

Donald Trump wants to turn NATO into a damn shakedown scheme and you people are cheering him on. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should be ashamed of the fact that your cult leader who claims to have been personally affected by 9/11 does not even know our NATO allies protected his ass that day. You should be ashamed that he wants to turn one of the strongest military alliances in the history of the world into a racket where protection is bought. You should be ashamed that you are not ashamed.

These are allies. They are not vassal states. These are friends. Our promises do not require shakedowns. We are not the global bully demanding lunch money for protection. We are the shining city on the hill.

You people reflect the evil character of your god. You should be ashamed, but you have no shame left. You all deserve to be defeated and annihilated. You disgust me in cheering him on. He disgusts me.

On September 11, 2001, our NATO allies surrounded our nation and our nation’s interests globally while we buried our dead and you people cheer that braying jackass on ignorant of that fact and demanding money from our allies.

Donald Trump can go to hell and perhaps you will do the rest of us a favor and follow him there.

Shame on you all. Shame on you.

It should be socially unacceptable to be a Trump supporter or voter.
