The Trump debate

A critic of presidential candidate Donald Trump wrote the following (in red bold font), my comments have been inserted in brackets. --Eli "Hoss" Caldwell

"Donald Trump won New York tonight by massive, absurd margins. He'll probably win the rest of the North East -- Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Delaware, Rhode Island -- next Tuesday. The nomination contest isn't over, of course, but these cannot be considered positive developments for him, to put it mildly.

Two quick observations:

1) Exit polls showed that about 25 percent of Republican voters in New York said the TOP quality they look for in a President -- so this is the number one most important attribute they think a United States President should possess -- is "tellin' it like it is." Now, we've already established that Donald Trump most emphatically does not tell it like it is. He tells it 12 different ways in the space of a day, and then settles on whichever version gets the most applause. Not only is he a BS artist like most politicians, but he's far more pathological and far more blatant, and at the same time is far worse at it. So these 25 percent of voters -- assuming most of them went for Trump -- identified as the most important attribute precisely the attribute that least describes the guy they chose."

[You went on an anti-Trump rant and called him a liar, the least you could do is actually DOCUMENT some of these lies. Simply saying "liar-liar" doesn't cut it. I am interested in substance and facts, not political whining.]

"It's incredible that Donald Trump has this reputation as the "tellin' it like it is" candidate when he is one of the most consistently and brazenly dishonest human beings I've ever had the displeasure of witnessing. Trump lies constantly, about everything, all the time. He lies so much that you get the impression he doesn't even realize he's lying. Yes, all politicians lie, but Trump lies even when there is no reason to lie. He lies even when he knows that everyone will know he's lying. He'll say something on camera and then 15 seconds later claim he didn't just say the thing we all heard him say. He emits lies like carbon dioxide. He is a liar to his core. He's such a liar that he turns the people around him into liars. His surrogates, his employees, even his supporters become liars."

[You went on an anti-Trump rant and called him a liar, the least you could do is actually DOCUMENT some of these lies. Simply saying "liar-liar" doesn't cut it. I am interested in substance and facts, not political whining. You not only call Mr. Trump a liar, you are also calling his supporters a liar. This is a serious charge, so you really should have provided documentation. Besides, nobody is a bigger liar than ol Lyin' Ted!!!] 

"Yet THIS is the "tellin' it like it is" dude? I really cannot handle this stupidity any longer. It's simply too much for my mind to bear."

[Who can you handle? Liberal Mitt Romney? Liberal John McCain? Lyin' Ted? Please tell us.]

"But all that aside, despite how incredibly inaccurate the label is, it must be said that even if it were true it would still be a fantastically moronic reason to vote guy into the Oval Office. "Tellin' it like it is"? A president who just says what's on his mind and delivers piping hot takes on current events? Where the hell is that presidential role enumerated in the Constitution? You think THAT'S the most important thing a president does? Dear Lord."

[Of course "tellin' like it is" is the most important quality in a president. What good would it do us if we elected someone who claimed to obey and uphold the constitution if he was lying? And actually, "tellin' it like it is" includes being a constitutionalist, since anything else would be a lie and a fraud for America. Those of us who support Mr. Trump support him because he is honest, unlike Lyin' Ted and the other Republican goons. We get this from Proverbs 17:7 which says "Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince." So according to the Bible, leaders should not be liars. Also Proverbs 12:17-22 "He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness: but a false witness deceit. There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health. The lip of truth shall be established for ever: but a lying tongue is but for a moment. Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil: but to the counsellers of peace is joy. There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief. Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight."

By the way, another reason to support Mr. Trump over Lyin' Ted is that Mr. Trump is strongly against drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. He has never drank alcohol and he tells people never to do it because it will destroy you. Unlike Lyin' Ted Booze, who gets up on national TV and brags about his favorite alcoholic beverages. (he says he is a "scotch man", and Guiness is his favorite). But the Bible says "It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine; nor for princes strong drink: Lest they drink, and forget the law, and pervert the judgment of any of the afflicted." (Prov. 31:4-5). According to the Bible, Ted Cruz is not wise. "Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise."(Prov. 20:1)]

"Let's grow up, people. Let's be adults. We aren't voting for a talk show host. We aren't voting for a stand up comedian. We aren't voting for the next Dr. Phil or Judge Judy. We're voting for a president. And on that note, we're also not electing a friend, a spouse, a daddy, a savior, a celebrity-in-chief, or a CEO of America. We're electing a president. If you don't understand the difference between all of those things and a president, you shouldn't be voting. You're not informed enough, wise enough, or mature enough."

[This sounds like something someone in Nazi Germany or Commy Russia would say! Apparently they think "we the people" are not informed enough, wise enough, or mature enough to vote. Instead "we the people" should let the political goons in the RNC decide who the next president is! The Republican Party establishment is corrupt as hell, they are against the people (just like the Democrats). People who oppose Mr. Trump automatically assume that Trump supporters are stupid little maniacs that shouldn't be allowed to vote. In reality, the Republican establishment is just mad that "we the people" do not want another one of their political imbeciles in the White House. Anti-Trump people are the most arrogant people I have ever met in my life, they think they are smarter than everyone else and that they are the only ones that are capable of voting intelligently. ]

"2) If you vote for Donald Trump, you vote for Hillary Clinton. It's that simple. Donald Trump will not be president. He might be the nominee, God help us, but he will not be president. He doesn't even want to be president, anyway. People that have worked on his campaign have, after quitting, admitted that Trump only ran for office as a publicity stunt. He was never supposed to get this far, but once, to his surprise, people actually started falling for his shtick, the attention got to his head and now he's seeing this all the way through because his ego is totally out of control. But this was never, and still is not, a presidential campaign. It's a publicity tour."

[Actually no, it isn't "that simple". If you vote for Trump, you are voting for Trump. Donald Trump is the best candidate for president and he is drawing record high crowds at his rallies, sometimes over 20,000 people. He fills up arenas. No other candidate has even come close to that. Why won't he be president? By the way, you misspelled your cuss word. By the way, I seriously doubt that a business man would waste millions of dollars on a publicity stunt.] 

"So he won't be president. His 35 or 38 percent of the Republican electorate may be enough to win him the GOP nomination, but it won't win the presidency, and he won't, hasn't, and can't expand beyond it. The man has historically high unfavorable ratings. Do you understand what that means? It means he is, quite literally, one of the most unpopular presidential candidates in the history of American politics. This dude is disliked by almost 70 percent -- SEVENTY PERCENT -- of women. Trump is less popular with women than cigar smoke and wet towels on the bathroom floor. If anyone thinks a person can become president without women, they haven't been paying attention to, like, any election since the suffrage movement."

[35-38 percent? Mr. Trump won 60% in New York, 47% in Arizona, 43% Hawaii, 46% in Nevada, 49% in Massachusetts, 47% in Mississippi, and 45% in Florida. Unpopular? He has RECORD HISTORICALLY HIGH rally attendance and he has gotten RECORD votes in some states. I seriously doubt the authenticity of the 70% of women poll. Look at his rallies, many women attend them. Look at former Governor Sara Palin, who endorsed Mr. Trump! By the way, Hillary Clinton has serious unfavorability ratings with women too. And how about the two women, "Diamond and Silk" that have been campaigning for Mr. Trump?] 

"He's of course hated by minorities as well, but most importantly of all, he doesn't have the support of actual conservatives. So can a Republican win the presidency without women, without minorities, and without the base of his own party? The answer is no. Absolutely not. The only way he wins the presidency is if Hillary gets indicted, but that would require a Democrat-controlled Justice Department to indict its own presidential candidate, which is simply not going to happen. And even if it did, Trump is such a ridiculous, flawed, weak, awful, abysmal, historically hated and despised candidate that Hillary might be able to beat him from prison."

[Hated by minorities? How about Dr. Ben Carson (black), "Diamond and Silk" (black), Herman Cain (black), Pastor Mark Burns (black), etc? 

Here are some black pastors endorsing Mr. Trump: 

And how about this "immigrant for trump"? 

Doesn't have the support of "actual conservatives"? Many conservatives like Trump and will vote for him, like Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, etc. I voted for Trump, and so did a lot of my family. I know a lot of pastors that support Trump. It is an outrageous lie that conservatives don't support Trump, a lot of them do. In fact, Mr. Trump has brought more people into the conservative movement.

YOU SAY MR. TRUMP IS "ridiculous, flawed, weak, awful, abysmal, historically hated and despised", SO WHY IS HE WINNING AND SOON TO GET THE REPUBLICAN NOMINATION? That doesn't make sense.]

"So congrats, Trump voters. The next four years of Hillary are your fault.

Thanks. Nice job. Awesome.

[Voting for Mr. Trump, who opposes everything Hillary Clinton stands for, is going to cause Hillary to win? That is crazy.]
