« Hillary v Trump - Part 1 | Main | Obvious Question: What Are They Hiding? »

A Deplorable Weekend Open Thread

Well, not "deplorable" by most standards, but if you're the kind of person that overheats in mild, 70-some degree northeastern morning temperatures you may have slightly different sensitivies. 

As the Clinton campaign continues to blow off any questions about her health they're also left to defend attacks against her broad-brushed approach by attacking half of Trump supporters as racist, sexist, homophobic and every other "-ism" in the book.   They even have "Deporable" t-shirts now in couterprotest.

Meanwhile, liberals are trying to spin this as a positive for Hillary:

“One result of this conversation is that the country is actually debating how many of Donald Trump’s supporters are anti-Semitic, racist, sexist,” said Neera Tanden, president of the Center for American Progress and one of the top outside supporters connected to the former secretary of state. “In a world where we wish that number was zero, this debate shines a light on the voice that Donald Trump has given to some attitudes that deeply trouble Americans in this election cycle.” 

But it's not zero... apparently it's half... and they're starting to get pretty pissed off about it.   Anybody recall when it was only 47%?   How'd that work out?

Hillary's likeability is also stumbling...   her poll numbers are as well.   Michigan is definitely in play for the Republican Party.   For starters, the state already polls right on immigration, but on top of that they're looking at this news from Ford Motor Company and their decision to move much of it's production to Mexico.

(Can you guess which candidate's base that might rile up?)

Oh yeah, and Iowa will probably go red this year.

That's not the only bad news for Democrats.   They're also facing another email scandal from this week stemming from even more leaked documents (courtesy of Guccifer 2.0) featuring some DNC strategies, analysis, many internal memos and email doozies like the one below, which hints at a possible pay-to-play scheme...  mostly because it uses the exact phrase "pay-to-play":

Well...  at least we kept it deplorable.

Have a great week (or however long it takes me to return)

BONUS:  Let's cap this off with another truly "deplorable" person...

Skinny, although the polls look encouraging the lesson I learned the hard way in 2012 is to NEVER under-estimate the stupidity of "Low Information Voters." In 2012 it was undeniable Obama was the Worst President we've ever had.. Yet he was re-elected. So even though Fat Hilda is equally incompetent and hard to believe even more of a scumbag than Obama, she could still be POTUS due to the "LIV's." I do find it hysterical the Demwits will need close to a billion dollars to drag Mrs. Mengele across the 270 electoral vote line...

During one of Barry Soetoro's taxpayer funded campaign speeches for Hillary, somebody was counting the number of times the Narcissist-in-Chief referred to himself. 137 times. In a speech supposedly all about Hillary. The great clod just can't control his immense runaway ego.

September 16, 2016 at 08:21 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Good Lord almighty! How oblivious must a Trumpster be to actually kvetch about a supposed Narcissist-in-Chief?

September 16, 2016 at 09:36 | Registered CommenterWinston

Hillary is famous for presenting the Russians with an overcharge button (the world's smartest woman thought it said "reset").

Incredibly, her campaign is overcharging it's own small donors.

September 16, 2016 at 10:07 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

I heard something on T.V and had me agreeing; it's 2016 but have we really ever left the 90's? Bill is still "dicking bimbos." Hilda has multiple FBI and other investigations going on. Funny money follows the Clintons around. A lot of "I can't recall" answers to perjury investigations... The minute Hilda started to send clues she was running for President the ethics cesspool that these people swim in enveloped us all. Can you imagine another eight years of this?

September 16, 2016 at 10:14 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

I have coached soccer for years, still volunteer 2nd-assistant coaching the boys and girls high school teams, and I hate "flopping", faking fouls, with a passion. I will not coach simulating a foul, I let the opposing team leave their dignity behind as they cheat by acting like pussies, we can be proud our team doesn't stoop to that level. I might remind the refs it is illegal to simulate a foul, but that has never worked yet in 13 years. The refs rarely enforce the rule, which empowers those who cheat.

Simulating a foul (flopping, diving), is really just mis-direction, which of course reminds me of Hillary.

It is a strange line that Hillary is trying to walk, she is healthy as a horse when she wants your vote, but she had a severe head injury and memory loss whenever it helps her avoid responsibility for things she has done. She invoked her head injury and memory loss when telling the FBI she did not recall receiving training on handling classified documents.

So she needs to balance her depiction of her own physical condition. Just enough head injury to avoid responsibility and avoid charges, but not quite enough to lose too many votes.

I am predicting, right here, that in the unlikely event that Hillary is asked an uncomfortable question during debates she will begin to cough. Or not remember. Or start yelling and finger-jabbing (refer to "what difference, at this point, does it make"), or possibly, fall to the ground holding her shin, then forget which shin hurts and switch to holding the other shin.

September 16, 2016 at 11:07 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Diving is an art form, but not all art is worthy. Good for you for standing on principle, Duff. Just the polar opposite of Madame Hillary, the say anything, lie about everything, power mad political animal.

September 16, 2016 at 14:48 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

I just realized where Winston got his idea about calling Trump obese. Apparently Filthy Harry Reid excoriated the media for focusing too much on The Decrepit Old Bag's many disconcerting "medical episodes," and he ordered them to look at Trump instead. Here are your marching orders, said Harry. Go attack Trump. You know, because he eats junk food and stuff.

This is what the lefties are reduced to doing now. It's actually kind of amusing.

September 16, 2016 at 16:44 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Um, OK if you say so.

This is reminding me of the days when you complained Obama was too old and cranky to be President so John McCain was your man. Pretty much every accusation you can bring to Hillary, your own nominee trumps her, pun intended. He's older. He's fatter. He's in worse physical shape. He's more secretive. He's far more corrupt. He lies ceaselessly.

It really is quite striking to note all the rampant projection among Wingnuttia.

Just as we expected, everything including the kitchen sink is flying as desperation sets in.

"Only 5.7% of Donations to Clinton Foundation Went to Charity"

That's some 'donit for the children' charity shit there.

September 16, 2016 at 23:30 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Maybe Orange Hitler's team of crack investigators should get on the case.

September 17, 2016 at 07:42 | Registered CommenterWinston

Maybe "Orange Hitler"'s not the best moniker.

How bout "Fat Old Out-of-Shape Corrupt Ceaseless Liar"?

September 17, 2016 at 10:36 | Registered CommenterWinston

What's a Hillary devotee to do? Now even the uber-leftist MSNBC is asking if The Old Bag is healthy enough to debate Trump.

The turncoat bastards! Get ye back to the reservation, MSNBC!

September 17, 2016 at 10:37 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

So the MSM is reporting that Fat Hilda is screwing her small donors by over-charging them with fees in there financial transactions. Nice, she feels their pain though. What will be her excuse; Trumps fault? Fat Hilda has campaigned now for two days. I'm sure she's off until Monday getting her blood drained and replenished.

September 17, 2016 at 12:09 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

In some cases double and triple charging, and refusing to take corrective action when the "errors" are brought to their attention. But "what difference, at this point, does it make?"

September 18, 2016 at 08:53 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Just saw a video of The Old Bag on her plane, talking about the New York bombing. She could barely focus. Looked like a zombie. Eyes half closed. Had the appearance of someone heavily medicated. But noticing such things makes me a sexist, right?

September 18, 2016 at 11:40 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard


She was just dehydrated.

September 18, 2016 at 12:22 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller





September 18, 2016 at 13:24 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Translation of Zombie Hillary on the plane: "I'm aware of the bomb in New York, but Trump is wrong to call it a bomb."

Go take a nap, lady. And lay off the Xanax.

September 18, 2016 at 15:30 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

"Brain Damage" criticizes Trump for mentioning NYC bomb before the evidence is in then calls it a "bombing."

September 18, 2016 at 16:35 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Whiney POS Hilda eunuchs scream that Trump wants her shot because Hilda called for gun control and loss of hand guns by law abiding citizens. Trump asks her body guards to lead by example.The left goes nuts.. She's fucking losing it...

September 18, 2016 at 23:22 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Well, SOMEone's certainly losing it, but I don't think it's Hillary..

As usual, it's all projection, all the time, in the fucking wing nut community, which has run out of kitchen sinks.

September 18, 2016 at 23:38 | Registered CommenterWinston

When The Old Bag referred to the "bombing" in New York and in the same breath criticized Trump for calling it a "bomb," the CNN Hillary Faithful Squad swung into action, editing her comments to remove her use of the word "bombing" in order to cover for her.

But there is NO media bias, right? Winston/Winnie/Winifred/Maxine could probably explain how that works, once he/she comes down off that high horse.

September 19, 2016 at 08:12 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

"as usual, it's all projection,all the time"

I'll that one just hang out there in all its splendor.. Clueless meet stupid...

September 19, 2016 at 10:58 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

The terrorist stabber in St. Cloud was a Somali immigrant. Immigration just 'mistakenly' let in nearly 900 immigrants from countries of concern. Nice job Barry, as they say "keep fu*king that chicken."

September 19, 2016 at 12:04 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Sorry, "Whiney POS Hilda eunuchs scream . . . The left goes nuts.. She's fucking losing it." sounds crazier than a s***house rat. Nooshans are completely losing their shit.

They're screaming at the televisions and spitting at the newspapers. I hope the poor dears don't hurt themselves rending their garments and joining in a great lamentation.

September 19, 2016 at 12:45 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

I dunno what Nooshans think they see in that clip. I'd actually be interested if you could tell me.

I see a man, a legislator, a lifelong Republican, happy to be liberated from the insanity of having to deal constantly with intransigent extremists.

Exactly like you.

September 19, 2016 at 12:57 | Registered CommenterWinston

Only you, Winnie, could post a tortured mess of random words like that and expect to be taken seriously.

Aren't you supposed to be on the Clinton bus right now? The sewage tank needs to be emptied.

September 19, 2016 at 13:16 | Registered CommenterRedBeard

I guess English is not your native language.

September 19, 2016 at 13:28 | Registered CommenterWinston

Whereas you, Winnie, are multilingual. You speak conversational Raving, 2nd year Slanderish, and you're fluent in Gobbledegook.

$500 million, it wasn't supposed to be this way..

September 19, 2016 at 14:50 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

de Blasio is fucking idiot.

September 20, 2016 at 00:00 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

At Temple University yesterday, The Old Bag had to be helped up the stairs to the podium. Given all the negative publicity about her health, one might think that Hillary would do all possible to appear well, so being assisted had to be a necessity and not a courtesy.

Oh dear, there I go again, being a sexist.

September 20, 2016 at 07:23 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Tom, calling de Blasio an idiot doesn't cover it all. How about his conspiring with Sadiq Khan, the filthy Islamist Mayor of London? Yep, there's nothing quite like having a foreigner (and a Sharia advocate) come over here to try to influence the vote. Oh, and did you hear Khan's advice to America? Apparently we need to "get used to terrorism."

I understand why Islamists and other foreigners might want to destroy our society, but how can we explain American leftists wanting to do the same thing?

September 20, 2016 at 07:32 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

The Dems are lining up for a group chant, now that someone told someone else who told the internet that Bush the Elder is planning to vote for Hillary. "Yaaaay, Bush! We hated you then, but we luuuuve you now!"

Assuming this is true, of course. It's been said that the internet is not always 100% accurate about everything. Hard to believe, I know.

September 20, 2016 at 09:38 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

The Dems think having Bush 41 vote for Fat Hilda hurts Trump. Most voters can't remember past Clinton.

September 20, 2016 at 12:19 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Oh, wow! Filthy Harry Reid had an absolute meltdown on CNN, waving his arms, denouncing CNN's own polling data, just going nuts over Hillary's fall and Trump's rise. CNN, mind you, the Clinton News Network, is now, according to Loopy Harry, shilling for Trump.

Reality calling Senator Reid... Reality calling Senator Reid... come back! We miss you!

No, no, don't come back. The entertainment value of a Clintonista bashing the Clinton campaign's best propaganda arm is too wonderful to lose.

September 20, 2016 at 13:39 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard


Orange Charlie Crist, the Republican/Independent/Democrat/Oompa-Loompa politician, explains that Hillary Clinton is honest. For some odd reason, the audience seemed to find that amusing.

September 20, 2016 at 15:31 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Brain Damage cancelled another event today..Headache... Check the video of her 'crazy eyes' on Monday. Jesus, I think one eye-ball was rolling around the eye socket.

September 20, 2016 at 19:23 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

I wonder if The Old Bag has rigged the debate stage so she can sit through the whole thing. Or maybe she's going to use a special brace, like the one used to aid Howard McNear (Floyd the Barber in the Andy Griffith Show) after his stroke.

September 21, 2016 at 07:43 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Really? She even publicly called herself the Senator from Punjab?

September 21, 2016 at 09:13 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Speaking of the Asshole-in-Chief, it's illuminating to hear him address the reports that ISIS has used poison gas on our troops.

JUST KIDDING. He couldn't be bothered. Too busy posting climate change crapola on Facebook. Priorities, you know.

September 22, 2016 at 08:12 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Tough one for Obama down in Charlotte. The protestors decrying the racial and economic injustice in the U.S. while for the last eight years we've had a black President and two Attorney Generals..
