I HOPE DONALD TRUMP DIDN’T ACTUALLY BELIEVE THE MSM WAS ON HIS SIDE AND WOULD TREAT HIM FAIRLY?
In an interview with CNN, Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, told the media its now time to ask Donald Trump the hard question and to hold his feet to the fire. Unreal, this can only be interpreted as Clinton giving the liberal MSM their marching orders to go after Trump. I wonder is the same types of questions are supposed to be asked of Clinton? Too bad CNN didn’t say ok and we will start with you … and ask her about her private email server and what she would do if indicted? What would happen if the media actually ever got tough on Hillary Clinton? Of course that would never happen.
“I think reporters now have a chance to ask some tougher questions,” said Clinton. “It’s not enough to call in and give somebody a platform. It’s now the time to make the tough decisions, and you got to the ask him, okay, so what exactly would you replace X, Y, and Z with? If you’re going to be against trade agreements how is that going to work?”
Clinton later added, “So let’s get to the specifics. … Being a loose cannon doesn’t in any way protect him, I hope, from being asked the hard questions that he should have been asked during the whole primary process.”
The following is what will determine whether the liberal MSM will carry the water for Hillary like they did Obama, or play the general election coverage some what down the middle. Do media outlets like CNN want to continue to gain viewership and challenge FOX News, or do they want to be relegated to the cellar in the ratings again?
RASMUSSEN POLL HAS TRUMP AHEAD OF CLINTON …
The most recent Rasmussen Reports poll has Donald Trump ahead of Hillary Clinton 41% to 39%. This is a quite surprising poll seeing that most political pundits have states that Hillary Clinton will crush Trump in a general election and the GOP will lose the House and Senate in the process. However, in this poll 20% of those surveyed either prefer another candidate (15%) or are undecided (5%). It is pretty obvious that Trump and Clinton are the presumptive nominees of their parties. The presidential election will rely on the decision as to whose unfavorables will be tolerated the most and how many will hold their nose and vote for the lesser of two evils.
Last week, Rasmussen Reports gave voters the option of staying home on Election Day if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the big party nominees, and six percent (6%) said that’s what they intend to do for now. Clinton and Trump were tied with 38% support each; 16% said they would vote for some other candidate, and two percent (2%) were undecided.
But Trump edges slightly ahead if the stay-at-home option is removed. Trump also now does twice as well among Democrats as Clinton does among Republicans.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 41% support to Clinton’s 39%. Fifteen percent (15%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
This is the first time Trump has led the matchup since last October. Clinton held a 41% to 36% advantage in early March.
Trump now has the support of 73% of Republicans, while 77% of Democrats back Clinton. But Trump picks up 15% of Democrats, while just eight percent (8%) of GOP voters prefer Clinton, given this matchup. Republicans are twice as likely to prefer another candidate.
Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads 37% to 31%, but 23% like another candidate. Nine percent (9%) are undecided.
As stated at The Pirate’s Cove, “if Trump wins Indiana tonight, it is pretty much over for Ted Cruz. If that happens, here’s my message: you don’t have to like Trump, but politics often pits a bad choice against a worse choice. A President Trump would be much better than a President Hillary. The GOP still needs to retain the House (little chance of losing it) and the Senate (there’s a chance of losing it if Hillary wins). With a Republican (or, should that be “Republican”?) in the White House, the Party might be able to get some things done, such as repealing and replacing Obamacare. Wait any longer, and it will be impossible.”
Then again, the wild card in the race is whether Hillary Clinton will or won’t be indicted and the reaction by the electorate to that decision.
WOW, SO THIS IS WHAT A TRUMP SUPPORTER THINKS AND ACTS LIKE …
Ever wonder just what appeals to a Trump supporter? All you need to do is take a look at the exchange below between Ted Cruz and a Trump supporter in Indiana. UNREAL. All the Trump supporter had was sound bytes and insults. Hmm, sound familiar? Because that is all Donald Trump has too. Take a good listen to the rude, obnoxious and ignorant behavior of this Trumpist as he is presented with facts about The Donald and he dismisses them all, even though they are facts and not lies. But because Trump calls everyone else liars, his supporters believe only Donald can be telling the truth.
But I must say, I am a bit surprised at Cruz for actually trying a debate a true believer. Legal Insurrection is spot on when they refer to this Trump supporter similar to what Republicans went through in 2008 with Barack Obama. Remember, fact don’t matter in this election; they never do when cults of personality take hold as happened in 2008 with Obama. Cruz is 100% correct, Trump is playing you all as the fool.
What gets me is that FOX News, the Donald Trump super PAC is playing this video continuously like its a badge of honor.
Why Cruz would bother debating Trump fans, especially Trump fans who are heckling him, I don’t know. It’s like Hillary trying to turn Obama supporters with a few words on the rope line in 2008. That’s not the way cults of personality work and Cruz knows it. Jamie Weinstein thinks Cruz was going for some sort of viral confrontation on the eve of the vote, knowing that the media would end up giving his case here against Trump lots of free coverage tonight when they re-run this incident on the news. That seems too clever by half. Arguing with a Trumper, especially one who’s spoiling to get in Cruz’s face, was as likely to produce some sort of trainwreck scene of Trump fans chanting “GO BACK TO CANADA” as it was a long disquisition against Trump. I don’t think there’s anything more complex behind this than Cruz’s supreme confidence that he can out-debate anyone, even some dude in shades smirking at him and howling about his “Goldman Sachs jacket.” This is a guy who talked his way into a Senate seat at age 41 and who outlasted 15 other Republican presidential candidates in the primaries this year. If Donald won’t debate him, why shouldn’t he go toe-to-toe with a Trump fan for a few minutes? I think he missed an opportunity, though, in not trying harder to bait the guy. Imagine how much more viral this clip would have been if he had said, “So, what do you think we should do with the Muslims?”
Don’t we make fun of Hillary Clinton supporters when we ask them what are her qualifications to be president, what has she accomplished and what do you like about her? The above Trump supporter struggled when asked the same question and could only come up with Trump is going to build a wall. A note to Republican, Conservative and Independent voters, this is the same type of voter you condemned in 2008 and 2012 who voted for Obama.
Ted Cruz Responds to Boehner’s Comments … ‘If You Want a President Like John Boehner, Donald Trump’s Your Man’ (VIDEO)
I WANT ALL REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES AND INDEPENDENTS TO REALLY LISTEN TO CRUZ’S COMMENTS BELOW …
In response to former establishment Republican Speaker of the House Boehner’s comments calling Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh,” Cruz responded in kind with some pretty thought provoking comments of his own. If you liked John Boehner as Speaker, if you want a John Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy as president, then Donald Trump is your guy. So who exactly is the political insider if they are Boehner’s golfing and texting buddy? Hmm?
“When John Boehner calls me ‘Lucifer,’ he’s not directing that at me, he’s directing that at you.”
Cruz, campaigning in Fort Wayne, Indiana ahead of the state’s May 3 primary, responded by saying Boehner was letting his “inner Trump come out” with his remarks. He attempted to turn the criticism into a slam on Trump.
“John Boehner in his remarks described Donald Trump as his texting and golfing buddy,” Cruz said. “So if you want someone that’s a texting and golfing buddy, if you’re happy with John Boehner as speaker of the House and you want a president like John Boehner, Donald Trump is your man.”
The LA Times reports that protesters took to the streets outside of a Donald Trump rally in Orange, California. The crowd gathered in the streets outside the OC Fair & Event Center as Trump addressed several thousand supporters at the Center’s amphitheater. As Trump fired up the crowd inside, the crowd outside formed into nothing more than a mob. Freedom of speech is one thing, outright chaos, crime and violence is unacceptable. Many were arrested during the protests by police.
Hundreds of demonstrators filled the street outside the Orange County amphitheater where Donald Trump held a rally Thursday night, stomping on cars, hurling rocks at motorists and forcefully declaring their opposition to the Republican presidential candidate.
Traffic came to a halt as a boisterous crowd walked in the roadway, some waving American and Mexican flags. Protesters smashed a window on at least one police cruiser, punctured the tires of a police sport utility vehicle, and at one point tried to flip a police car.
“Dump the Trump,” said one sign. Another protester scrawled anti-Trump messages onto Costa Mesa police cruisers.
“I’m protesting because I want equal rights for everybody, and I want peaceful protest,” said 19-year-old Daniel Lujan, one of hundreds in a crowd that appeared to be mostly Latinos in their late teens and 20s.
“I knew this was going to happen,” Lujan added. “It was going to be a riot. He deserves what he gets.”
Video footage showed some anti-Trump demonstrators hurling debris at a passing pickup. One group of protesters carried benches and blocked the entrance to the 55 Freeway along Newport Boulevard, with some tossing rocks at motorists near the on-ramp.
Former Establishment Republican Speaker John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the Flesh’ & a ‘Miserable Son of a Bitch’
JOHN BOEHNER IS THE EPITOME OF THE COUNTRY CLUB ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICAN WHO WE COULDN’T WAIT TO LEAVE OFFICE …
Hey Boehner, have another drink and a cry. Former Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner called Sen. Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ and further went on to say Cruz was a ‘miserable son of a bitch’. Hmm, coming from the likes of Boehner, Cruz should wear these words with a badge of honor. Sorry America and especially my fellow Conservatives, I find Boehner and his crying pathetic self exactly what is wrong with the GOP. Boehner is the epitome of the country club establishment Republican who forgot along time ago what the GOP party platform stood for and that government was of, by and for the people.
I find it quite interesting that the poster child who Conservatives danced with glee when Boehner left office and is the face of the establishment GOP is actually “golfing and texting buddies” with Donald Trump. Flashback, the Gateway Pundit reported one last cry from Boehner. That should give many pause for concern. Many have stated that they are supporting Trump because he is a political outsider, really? Who do you think was buying politician’s influence? When Conservatives were battling Pelosi, Reid and Obama, Trump was donating to them. So Boehner, who openly hated the Conservative movement, condemns Cruz and loves Trump. WAKE THE HELL UP CONSERVATIVES, ADMIT YOU MADE A MISTAKE AND DO THE RIGHT THING.
So, Mr. Speaker, how do you really feel?
John Boehner, the famously blunt ex-House speaker, left no doubt he’s not a fan of fellow Republican Ted Cruz, leaping off the sidelines of the presidential race Wednesday night to unleash a stunning verbal lashing of the Texas senator, reportedly calling him “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch.”
The longtime Ohio powerhouse had not been very outspoken on the race since retiring last year, but he held little back when asked about the Texas senator and underdog GOP presidential candidate during a forum at Stanford University.
“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life,” he said, according to The Stanford Daily.
He reportedly said he’s played golf with front-runner Donald Trump, describing them as “texting buddies,” and said his relationship with Ohio Gov. John Kasich “requires more effort” but they’re friends “and I love him.” He also said he’d vote for Trump in a general election – but not Cruz.
And yet another GOP insider and Republican who should be ashamed of himself, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) stated, “I fully agree with John Boehner, and maybe it gives Lucifer a bad name by comparing him to Ted Cruz.” King accused Cruz of having “perpetrated a fraud and a hoax” with his push in 2013 to defund ObamaCare, which eventually led a government shutdown. Really, it was a fraud and hoax to try and to defund Obamacare? This was the very reason why Republicans were voted in majorities in the House and the Senate to do just that. Defunding and abolishing Obamacare is what the GOP ran on in 2010, 2012 and 2014 to do. And because the establishment Republicans did not do what they claimed they were going to do, in other words, lied to the very people who voted them into office, they establishment GOP finds itself with Donald Trump as their presumptive presidential nominee.
Hmm, it seems like all do not agree with Boehner and King, some Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord. Good grief.
Donald Trump Sweeps I95 Primaries (CT, DE, MD, PA, RI) … But Do You Know the Real Story of the Night?
WHO’S LYING TO YOU?
Donald Trump swept through the I95 primaries last night taking all five states, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. Is it just me, but since when do Conservatives like candidates who win in liberal blue states? Wouldn’t that generally be a RINO?
What Fox News will tell you, the suddenly recent cable channel turned Trump Super PAC, other media outlets and many what I thought was once Conservative bloggers that Trump had a HUGE night, his best ever and that all others should get out of the race. They will some how make it appear that winning liberal dark blue states in a GOP primary is a good thing. FOX News et all will talk about Trump getting to 60% and this is the most fantastic and awesome thing ever. REALLY? Just curious, has anyone taken a look at the vote count in the 5 primary states from Tuesday, April 26? Is anyone mentioning how both Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders amassed a blistering number of votes Tuesday night that towered far above The Donald? The delegates may be important for Trump winning the GOP presidential nomination, but the voting shows that Trump does not have a snowballs chance in hell of winning any one of these five states in a general election.
Folks, you need to take a look at the volume of votes cast in ct, DE, MD, PA and RI. Its not even close. Did The Donald win 5 of 5 states last night? Yes he did. But please don’t get lost in the spin and the BS put out by others, including FOX News and their Trump love-fest.
The math does not lie America, most notably Republicans and Conservatives. Honestly, who cares whether Trump won all 5 states in last nights primary, they are all dark blue or blue states where a Republican presidential candidate will never win in a general election. All it tells me is that Trump is the most liberal of the three remaining GOP candidates. That is hardly a badge of honor.
CT: Donald Trump: 122,519 – John Kasich: 60,447 – Ted Cruz: 24,779 (Total # of votes: 207,745)
Clinton: 169,763 – Sanders: 152,895 (Total # of votes: 322, 658)
DE: Trump: 42,472 – Kasich: 14,225 – Cruz: 11,110 (Total # of votes: 67,807)

MD: Trump: 237,132 – Kasish: 100,333 – Cruz: 82,286 (Total # of votes: 419,758)

Hmm, Remember when Conservatives actually supported Conservative candidates?
Five States Primary (PA, MD, CT, RI, & DE) Today Expected to Help Trump and Clinton Widen Their Leads
Today’s 5 state “Amtrak Primary” is expected to help the two presidential front-runners, Republican Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But what really will primaries in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware tell us about Donald Trump and the GOP primary? NOTHING. A note to those that are Republicans, Conservatives and Independents that lean right, these 5 states are blue and dark blue states. None of these states in a general election will vote for the GOP nominee, no matter who wins the nomination. Just like with Trump’s victory in the New York primary, not even Donald Trump stands a chance of winning against Hillary Clinton in Blue liberal states in a general presidential election.
Five states began voting Tuesday in the “Amtrak Primary” in contests expected to help the two presidential front-runners, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, rack up ever-wider leads in their parties’ crucial delegates counts.
For Republicans, the race for delegates remains a key focus, with Trump hoping to secure the 1,237 delegates needed before the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. His rivals Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich — now loosely aligned in hopes of stopping Trump — are not expected to significantly cut into the billionaire’s lead.
“I just hope everybody goes out and votes,” Trump said on Fox News on Tuesday as he continued to decry the electoral process as rigged and corrupt.
DOESN’T IT MAKE YOU WONDER WHETHER THE FEUD WAS ALL MADE UP FOR RATINGS?
The faux feud is over, we can all sleep well now. Megyn Kelly has landed a big, no huge, huge interview with Donald Trump after the two have decided to end their feud. You will remember that Trump skipped the FOX News debate over his spat with Megyn Kelly. But, when it comes to the cable channels, its all about the bass, I mean the base and the ratings. And why not, FOX News has pretty much become nothing more than a super PAC for Trump these days. As Hot Air opines, “It’ll be tricky for Kelly to find the right tone.” We shall see how this one goes, then again, this has not been about reporting the news, issues and candidates this election cycle, its been all about the bass, I mean the ratings.
Megyn Kelly has landed a big interview with Donald Trump after the warring pair agreed to end their feud.
Trump will sit for an in-depth interview on Kelly’s special, which airs on Fox on May 17, a source confirmed to Page Six.
The move comes after the pair met for a summit at Trump Tower to make their peace.
The Fox News anchor secretly spent an hour with the Republican presidential candidate on April 13 at the Trump Tower, where they discussed him appearing with her on a TV special.
“Kelly requested a meeting with Mr. Trump, which took place at Trump Tower this morning . . . Kelly has acknowledged in recent interviews that Trump is a fascinating person to cover and has electrified the Republican base,” a Fox rep said in a statement at the time.
Later on the “The Kelly File,” the host said, “Mr. Trump and I discussed the possibility of an interview, and I hope we will have news to announce on that soon.”
In a miraculous transformation of both Trump and Kelly, the two have decided to put their faux differences beside for their futures. But I thought he had no respect for her as a journalist and their was blood coming out of her eyes?
The feud erupted last year after Kelly grilled Trump during the first GOP presidential debate about his tasteless comments regarding women.
“You’ve called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’ and ‘disgusting animals,’” Kelly said. “Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president?”
The tough questioning caught Trump off guard. “Honestly, Megyn, if you don’t like it, I’m sorry . . . I’ve been very nice to you, although I could probably not be, based on the way you have treated me,” he shot back.
A NOTE TO ALL MORONS … DON’T EVEN THINK OF THREATENING TO BOMB A PRESIDENTIAL RALLY. A FURTHER NOTE TO THE SOCIAL MEDIA GENERATION, ACTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
20 year old Sean Taylor Morkys has been taken into custody and arrested after threatening to bomb Saturday’s rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Waterbury, Connecticut. Morkys is charged with first-degree threatening, inciting injury to person or property, and second-degree breach of peace. As The Right Scoop opines, don’t even make a joke about bombing a presidential rally, “the Secret Service doesn’t take those “jokes” very well.”
A 20-year-old man is in custody after threatening to bomb Saturday’s rally for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in Waterbury.
At about 12:45 p.m., the United States Secret Service contacted the Connecticut State Police after seeing a threat posted on Twitter threatening to “bomb” the rally for Trump.
According to state police, the Twitter post said, “Is someone going to bomb the Trump rally or am I going to have to?”
A second Twitter post warned the suspect’s friend to have his family members leave the rally so they wouldn’t be hurt. Detectives found that the Twitter posts came from the area of Ardsley Road in Waterbury from the account of Sean Taylor Morkys.
