    To the Trump supporters:

    Exactly what would Trump have to say to make you stop supporting him?

    Now I despise Rubio and Cruz, but I'm amazed that this huckster continues to get votes with absolutely zero credibility.

    He's been pro-choice and anti-abortion. He's been for universal healthcare and now he's not. He's given money to every political candidate on the planet in order to curry favor. He's gone bankrupt numerous times and he's used his wealth as a blunt weapon. Yet poor stupid people think he's going to fight for them.

    He has no healthcare plan except he's gonna remove the line around states.

    He intends to deport 11 million people and build a 60-foot wall and get Mexico to pay for it, yet offers no logical reason how it could possibly happen without costing the U.S. hundreds of billions of dollars.

    And then there are these lies:

    • Trump boasted that he “predicted Osama bin Laden.”Nope. The book Trump published in 2000 mentioned bin Laden once, and predicted nothing about bin Laden’s future plans.
    • Trump “heard” that Obama is “thinking about signing an executive order where he wants to take your guns away.” If so, he misheard. What Obama reportedly considered was requiring large-volume private gun dealers to conduct background checks, not confiscating firearms from those who own them.
    • Trump said he “heard” the Obama administration plans to accept 200,000 Syrian refugees — even upping that wildly inaccurate number to 250,000 in another speech.Nope and nope. The number is about 10,000.
    • Trump said he got to know Putin “very well” while the two were on CBS’ “60 Minutes.”Nope. The two men were interviewed separately, in different countries thousands of miles apart.
    • Trump claimed his campaign is “100 percent” self-funded. Nope. At the time, more than 50 percent of his campaign’s funds had come from outside contributorsTrump said his tax plan is revenue neutral. Nope. The pro-business Tax Foundationestimated the Trump plan would reduce revenues to the Treasury by more than $10 trillion over 10 years, even assuming his plan would create economic growth
    • Trump told the story of a 2-year old who got autism a week after the child got a vaccine. But there’s no evidence of such a link. The study that claimed to have found a link between vaccines and autism has been exposed as an “elaborate fraud.” It was retracted five years ago by the journal that published it, and the author was stripped of his license to practice medicine in Britain.
    • Trump said Mexico doesn’t have a birthright citizenship policy. It does.
    • Trump claimed credit for getting Ford Motor Co. to move a plant from Mexico to Ohio.Ford says that’s baloney; it made the decision years before Trump even announced his run for president.
    • Trump denied that he ever called female adversaries some of these things: “fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” He used all of those terms.
    • Trump said in June “there are no jobs” to be had, when official statistics were showing 5.4 million job openings — the most in 15 years.
    • Trump claimed economic growth in the U.S. has “never” been below zero — until the third quarter of 2015. “Who ever heard of this?” he asked. Except it’s not unheard of. Economic growth has been below zero 42 times since 1946.

    And let's not even start on Trump University:

    It wasn’t a real university -- and had to change its name to Trump Entrepreneur Institute because of that. It was largely a seminar program that promised to teach its students the real estate secrets that turned Trump into a billionaire. With some participants paying as much as $35,000, the project drew investigations and lawsuits in at least three states.

    Today, Trump said the university had an A rating from the Better Business Bureau.

    There’s no shortage of news articles saying the Better Business Bureau gave the Trump program a D-minus rating in 2010.

    The New York Daily News reported that "the Better Business Bureau in January slapped a D-minus rating on Trump U., a rating now under review after Trump U. objected. Trump Institute got an F in early 2009."

    CBS News said the same thing in an April 21, 2010, article.

    And in May, 2011, the New York Times wrote "The Better Business Bureau gave the school a D-minus for 2010, its second-lowest grade, after receiving 23 complaints."

    The man is a huckster, fraud and complete liar.

    Please, Trump supporters, tell me one thing he could say to change your minds and realize he's a huge, dopey loser...

    My feeling is that Trump's appeal comes from the fact that he all but admits he's a "huckster". People appreciate that he's upfront and honest; the other candidates are far worse con men than Trump, but they all like to pretend they're something else.

    The difference with Trump is simple. He's not worried about offending anyone. He doesn't care. Hence, he doesn't come across like a politician. That's his appeal.

    Wait, the Donald admitted he's a huckster? Missed that.

    And then you say people appreciate that he's upfront and honest.

    You realize that you contradicted yourself in the space of two sentences.

    You are obviously a Trump supporter with no hope of convincing.

    I tried to propose an interesting and erudite hypothetical.

    But feel free to move on to the thread, "What's your favorite poop color?"

    Blustering, insulting and lying is appealing?

    When did people in this country want that kind of man as President?

    No worries. Honestly, I didn't even know what it meant.

    Trump would be proud of your post.

    Aside from Bernie and possibly Kasich, the rest of them are all hucksters and shysters. I'd vote for Kasich in a heartbeat but that's not gonna happen. I could never vote for Bernie because although I respect his sincerity and conviction, I disagree with his socialism.

    That leaves Hillary, who I despise, is crooked as the day is long, was an undistinguished Senator and seemingly ineffectual Sec of State; Cruz, who's a Jesus freak Canadian with a holy roller Cuban father who has his ear in the Dominionism Movement (bring the country back to Jesus), tightly wound, personally unlikeable and disliked by Senators and people going back to high school if not hated; and then there's Rubio, a possible twink who's a sweaty automatron, with his prepared presentations, Gang of 8 sponsorship in the Senate and a generally undistinguished record. What happens to national security if one of his male lovers from the past surfaces? Clinton and Cruz are beholding to wall street and financed by them.. Cruz is hypocritical for calling out Wall Street after taking an undisclosed loan from Goldman Sachs and his wife working for them. Thanks but no thanks.

    So they're all either misguided, twisted or evil.. and for me it's turning out that if I'm gonna vote at all, it will be for the lesser of all the other evils.. Trump.

    And you're obviously a supporter of some other jackass and there's no convincing you either. Also, by saying that I, as a Trump supporter, can't be convinced to change my support, you've answered your own question and made your own thread irrelevant.

    When he talks I get embarrased for our country. He is a no nothing of the highest order. He looks and acts like Mussolini and now he quotes him. A bully, A dunce, A supreme narcissists, someone who needs attention constantly and needs to be in the spotlight at all times.

    He is a flim flam artist of the highest order. He backed doored his way into becoming wealthy. He took major advantage of a decaying city and a shrinking tax base in the 80s to bully his way into taking over depressed properties for peanuts and paying off corrupt politicians to get zoning and variance laws changed.

    Fuck him where he breaths.

    El Donaldo stated in the debates that he takes advantage of bankruptcy laws that are available to businesses.
