Hillary had a GREAT day today. Trump looked like SHIT.

Hillary's speeches were AWESOME. Trump and his kids looked like SHIT. He wouldn't answer the birther question.

He was called out for insulting the pastor of the African American church in Flint, MI.

His kids whined, ended interviews, and told racist jokes.

Things are going WELL folks. Just get out there and CAMPAIGN.

"Birtherism Reborn" (See CNN Link)

Here we go folks. Birther Don is Reborn! hahahahahahaha...

http://www.cnn.com/

For those worried, concerned, and all the rest, please calm down and find the SPINE.

Good grief folks, it is many weeks until election day. Team Hillary has been registering millions of voters.

She is back and had a GREAT day today. AWESOME speeches in NC and in DC at the Hispanic Caucus event. Trump has been SLAMMED again with the re-birth of birtherism, insulting the pastor in Flint, and plenty more.

We haven't had one debate yet. Hillary will cream him.

Polls jitter around. The fundamentals are well with us. Just be STRONG and CONFIDENT, get out there, campaign, donate, and SLAM Trump at every single opportunity.

Hey Trump, just keep bashing Obama. He's at 58% national approval, so FUCK YOU!

And this fuckwad says he is reaching out to AA voters, this guy the fucking Birther In Chief. Oh, piss on him YUGE!

"Trump Releases Anti-Trump Ad" (See Ad)

What do you think?

The plain reality behind so MUCH of Trump's support and GOP support in general.

Yes, there are a number of factors that play into voting decisions such as party loyalty, negative views of the opponent, etc. But let's be honest. A very large percentage of Trump/GOP supporters are angry white people, especially men, who simply resent the demographic and cultural power structure changes that have been occurring in recent decades and continue to occur.

Some 35% or more of the country is now made up of people of color. These groups have much more power than in the past. Women have much more power than in the past. The old orders are in decline and have been in decline for quite some time, and the election of Barack Obama really struck fear into the guards of the old order. This is why to this day so many of the old guard STILL believe that he is not even an American citizen.

And the GOP has been using race to divide Americans for decades. It was the "Southern Strategy" of Nixon, turning the old DixieCrats into Republicans because President Johnson supported the civil and voting rights acts. Ronald Reagan began a new era of Southern Strategy in his time. George HW Bush used the Willey Horton ad. Right wing talk radio and Fox News have race baited to no end. And then of course the Tea Party movement was mainly race-based and an angry response to Obama's election.

So Trump is just the next and most pronounced evolution of the GOP's racist, sexist, nativist, homophobic leanings. They can't escape it. Trump has hired Bannon of racist Breitbart News as his top guy. Trump has been endorsed and praised by white supremists like former Klan Grand Wizard David Duke. Trump has blatantly insulted people of color and women time and time again. And many of his supporters LOVE IT as they sport their confederate flags. It is just the plain TRUTH.

When Trump says he wants to "Make America Great Again," he is really saying that he wants to take America back to where white men are in charge with white women standing by their men, and all women, people of color, and the LGTB community stay in their "place".

Ask the next person you talk to about this issue this question: "If you are racist, sexist, or homophobic, who are you more likely to support, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, and BE HONEST?" There is only one possible answer, and we all know what it is.




As long as they play the follow-up right, Hillary's "deplorables" comment was BRILLIANT.

* The "deplorables" comment fits right into the narrative she laid out in her Reno speech a few weeks ago that Trump has on his team people from the alt right and many supporters who are leaders in the alt right.

* It asks moderates, "Do you really want to be lumped in with these hate mongers? Do you really want to be part of Trump's base that thinks like this?"

* It brings the issues of hate, racism, xenophobia, and misogyny in America and in the Trump campaign front and center.

* It puts Trump and his deplorables on the defensive. They will just amplify their hate proving her very point.

* It makes her look strong and principled to Democrats, Progressives, and anyone else put off by Trump's hate and his hate-filled base.
It plays VERY WELL with the base. She had the guts to GO THERE and CALL THEM OUT!

* She was careful to limit her comments only to a segment of his base. These slimebags would never vote for her anyhow.

****** The one thing she and her team MUST do is stick this comment to the narrative that TRUMP PLAYS TO THIS KIND OF HATE just as she did with the Reno speech. IT IS AN EXTENSION OF HER NARRATIVE IN THAT SPEECH.********

How does the "She could shoot someone and get away with it." play out?

And then his crowd cheered and cheered just as they cheered and cheered and yelled "lock her up, lock her up" at their hate convention. And they are constantly on right wing social media with their racist homophobic misogynistic xenophobic crap.

What Hillary said was simply the truth, and the Trump campaign and everyone else who isn't deplorable knows it. He is playing to that element, and EVERYONE knows it. These "deplorables" including Trump himself and many on his team should be the ones constantly answering for their outrages. Hillary just called them out. GOOD! It is about damn time! She and her people should be CONSTANTLY attacking Trump and his people for their racist homophobic xenophobic mysogynistic outrages.

Vote that Hillary came out better in the forum tonight here please:
