Trump's comments, both past and present, seem to be creating some consternation among Republicans. Several have publicly withdrawn their support stating that they can no longer endorse him, saying that while they could not vote for Clinton they will not be voting for Trump.

Some have gone further, calling for Trump to step down and allow pence to lead. A random selection of quotes:

Dennis Daugaard, South Dakota governor: “Enough is enough. Donald Trump should withdraw in favor of Governor Mike Pence. This election is too important.”

Cory Gardner, Colorado senator: “If Donald Trump wishes to defeat Hillary Clinton, he should do the only thing that will allow us to do so – step aside.”

Shelley Moore Capito, West Virginia senator: “Women have worked hard to gain the dignity and respect we deserve. The appropriate next step may be for him to re-examine his candidacy.”

Dan Sullivan, Alaska senator: “I’m calling on Trump to step aside for Gov. Pence. Trump can’t lead on critical issue of ending domestic violence & sexual assault.”

Deb Fischer, Nebraska representative: “It would be wise for him to step aside and allow Mike Pence to serve as our party’s nominee.”

But how easy would it be to replace Trump? Trump has firmly stated he intends going no where. The rules of the RNC don't appear to allow for him to be set aside, although they do provide for filling a vacancy. Even if Trump were to go, look the practicalities: by now many states will have printed their ballot papers and in some states voters may have already cast their votes early.

Sunday will be a historic debate with Trump only able to hang on to Bill Clinton's 20 year old past. Not a wise idea as the hits Bill took back then resulted in his being re-elected.

How many places are going to set up a pool for the date Trump quits?


That thinking is known as political premature ejaculation.

There is still one month to go (sadly).

Only those who have wet dreams about Hillary are foolish enough to not realize that she could be derailed overnight.

Hillary will bring this up at the next debate. Trump will admit that what he said was stupid, that he regrets it, that he apologized - and he will apologize again. Hillary will press the point, at which Trump will say something to the effect of "okay Hillary, since you want to talk about inappropriate comments I made over a decade ago, let's talk about the inappropriate comments you made publicly just weeks ago in which, whilst you were running for President, you called tens of millions of Americans, including many in this room, deplorable". Hillary will smirk and smile and pause before answering. Trump will be applauded. This distraction would not surprise many and will probably affect Trump like all of the other distractions have so far out. I haven't heard anybody mention those all important tax returns for a few days now LOL.

It just struck me of something Trump has been gearing up to use in the debate tomorrow night. Since the last debate, his team have been readying the "Bill" card, to show that Hillary Clinton is at fault for Bill's dalliances in the past.

In other words, Donald Trump is saying, in essence, Hillary Clinton isn't fit to be president because, according to Mr. Trump, she's married to someone who is EXACTLY like he is.

Irony, anyone?

One has to wonder if the Clinton's had friends in the media, in Hollywood, moles in the Trump campaign that were told to release these latest revelations about Trump's sexist and abusive behaviors to and about women if stuff about her speeches to Goldman Sachs got leaked out as they have been on Friday via Wikileaks.

It won't be easy and that may cost the GOP a few states. Two reasons for it:

1. Depending on the law of the state, if a state already printed ballots and people already cast a vote, then there's nothing else that can be done. The nominee is Trump, not Pence. Republicans would have to write in Pence (if the ballot allows them to do so); otherwise, they must vote for Trump or abstain from voting. But that also brings another issue: if some states allow write in and Pence emerges as the winner in those states, Hillary essentially could win while Trump and Pence divide the electoral votes. You can have Trump win Oklahoma while Pence wins Kansas. And in the confusion, Clinton can end up winning a red state or two because Republican voters are not aware that they can write in Pence.

2. Just who exactly should be at the top of the ballot if Trump steps aside? The VP pick or the 2nd place finisher of the primaries?

Perhaps somebody has made a promise not to eventually extradite Assange to the US if they become POTUS?

Let's play:

So, after the applause subsides, Clinton will define deplorable word by word from the dictionary. She will then express regret at lumping half the voters into the basket before explaining the reasoning for the behavior, and ask him to defend his behavior as anything BUT deplorable.

I mean...if you think calling women ugly and fat shaming them is not deplorable, then enlighten us on what IS deplorable in your eyes. They say silence is tacit approval so if his supporters are not willing to call him out on his comments and outrageous remarks, by extension, they approve.

Good point. Those Republican politicians who have suggested that Trump step aside seem to be in favour of Pence who would fill any vacancy should Trump (in the event that he wins) decides it's all too much like work and declares himself disqualified by incapacity.

It looks like Hillary can get some rest this week, Trump is so busy shooting himself in the foot, she won't need to do any campaigning.

To me his continuing call for the death sentence for those five innocent kids in the Central Park case is a more damming story than this one. And as 777Jet points out we don't even have time for the failure to provide income tax records story for now, it'll just have to be put on hold for the rest of the week (along with his Putin love story as relations with Russia get even worse.)

He did not call all women that, he picked on a particular few, who are indeed exactly as he described. And that was only half of the truth. He could have been much more truthful. But I wonder why he did that?

It also "only takes a new" Hillary "headline to forget about" Trump "and focus on" Clinton. You know that.

I was hoping you'd take the bait Seb put up for you. Here:

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/white-na ... d=37524610

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2 ... vania.html

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/14/us/po ... .html?_r=0

You see, Trump's rhetoric about Muslims, Mexicans, African-Americans and foreigners in general are all meant to do one thing, and that's unleash white anger towards those groups. It's all steeped in the changes in demographics that are taking place. The white population is declining, and it will never dominate this nation like it did in the past. Why do you think so many Trump-types hate Obama? His politics? Hell no, it's his skin color that is a reminder that they aren't the future of America.

Trump has signaled to people like skinheads, Neo-Nazi's, the KKK and other hate groups, that they have legitimate gripes with the changes that are taking place, even though it's simply old-fashioned white priviliged racisim that is being let loose.

Do you hear about Hillary supporters attacking a homeless man in Boston, and saying Trump was right about people like the guy they assaulted?

https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2016/ ... story.html

Is it Hillary's supporters who attacked a Muslim and an Hispanic yelling "Trump! Trump! Trump!" the whole time?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/mor ... m-student/

Is it Hillary Clinton calling for Muslim neighborhood and Mosques to be monitored by the government? Is it Hillary calling Mexicans "rapists" and "drug dealers"?

I've given you some concrete examples of why you're wrong. You, like Mr. Trump, simply say what pleases you and haven't shown anything to corroberate what you have accused Clinton supporters of.

Let's see your proof.

which clearly the left does not learn

And yet it isn't just "the left" that is critical. Let us look at some of the remarks made by those on Trump's own side of politics.

Ted Cruz described Trump as “a serial philanderer”, an “amoral pathological liar”, and a “braggadocious, arrogant buffoon”.

John Kasich, Ohio governor: “Nothing that has happened in the last 48 hours is surprising to me or many others … It’s clear that he hasn’t changed and has no interest in doing so. As a result, Donald Trump is a man I cannot and should not support. The actions of the last day are disgusting.”

Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts and 2012 presidential nominee: “Hitting on married women? Condoning assault? Such vile degradations demean our wives and daughters and corrupt America’s face to the world.”

Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida : “As the grandfather of two precious girls, I find that no apology can excuse away Donald Trump’s reprehensible comments degrading women.”

OK, the above are all failed presidential candidates who might be expected to bear a grudge but one man who doesn't have an axe to grind is Arnold Schwarzenegger who has said: “For the first time since I became a citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for president. Like many Americans, I’ve been conflicted by this election – I still haven’t made up my mind about how exactly I will vote next month … But as proud as I am to label myself a Republican, there is one label that I hold above all else – American. So I want to take a moment today to remind my fellow Republicans that it is not only acceptable to choose your country over your party – it is your duty.”

Now whether Trump's opinion of someone being fat or ugly is right, it is not correct for a person seeking the highest office in the land to use such language. Call it political correctness if you like but to me it seems a sure way of turning away a large sway of potential voters.

Still, he might yet win for all that. People might be willing to overlook his unsuitability simply because they don't want more of the same. Either way, I'll be glad when the election and inauguration is over. US elections seem to go on for ever .

Yes, for sure. I would have also added hypocrites but they are similar enough to bigots.

Sure, but it doesn't explain Schwarzenegger's view, nor that of those who previously endorsed Trump and have rescinded that endorsement. They are obviously taking a pragmatic approach as they wish to salvage something from the campaign over the coming weeks.

It is usually the right who screams about character when saying who to vote for. People are still falling all over themselves to ride Trump's coat tales to the White House. But, his character. His moral fiber. People keep saying that is why they hate Hillary, because she has no moral fiber and that she is morally bankrupt. But, Trump comes along and shows what moral bankruptcy looks like. This race would have been a nail bighter if Republicans had nominated a politician. For all his political flaws, Jeb would have been a good choice.

Well, the GOP has officially suspended all financial support of the Trump Campaign.

Interestingly, during this campaign BOTH Skittles and Tic-Tac have had to denounce a Presidential Candidate. I can't think of a precedent in history who has been publicly repudiated by even one candy maker/brand. Can anyone think of an example?

You'll be surprised but I know that Asians, including many those that are well educated, can be racist against Blacks, Musiims and Hispanics, and might have agreed with Trump and would have voted for Trump. Many upper income Asians wouldn't move to a Hispanic or Black neighborhood. And then, many high income Asians just like other high income people vote Republican, simply and largely because they feel that their income taxes will be lower with a Republican as President, and Wall Street (their stock holdings) will perform better with a Republican. And many Asians really aren't receptive to progression in social causes like gay marriage or pro-choice. For all purposes, they can be quite conservative, while not even necessarily Christian.

I'm also not sure women will vote for Hillary. Perhaps it's women are less likely to trust trust other women and Hillary, esp., hasn't won their trust.

@ phluser
Trump polls miserably among Asian Americans
Only 19 percent of Asian Americans hold a favorable view of the presumptive Republican nominee, according to a survey of more than 1,000 registered Asian Americans conducted by three Asian-American NGOs, while 61 percent view him unfavorably.

Governator and non-politicians aside, the seasoned politicians, who Trump defeated, are obviously thinking 4 years into the future which will be when they get their next shot. Their campaign already began the moment when Trump was announced as Republican nominee.

It's also because she shows contempt towards the law and authorities and thinks she can get away with it with an apology when pressed. She even lied to Congress.

If people dislike Trump because he thinks he can get away with whatever he wants, Hillary is no different and actually does get away with whatever she wants. She has even admitted that their is the Hillary standard and a standard for everybody else - how ironic when Hillary thinks she can get away with whatever she likes - that is her standard - she is above the law that applies to almost everybody else. No need to repeat all of this though, it's not like it hasn't been discussed before. The usual Hillary surrogates will come to her defense.

Asians are among the most racist people I have met. Many Asians love white skin, and believe that the darker your skin is, the poorer you are. If you are dark, you must work outside under the sun in a poor labor job. If you have light skin, you must work indoors and have a good job. That attitude is what annoyed me when living in SE Asia for a while. The white Asians are always the teachers pets. Those with darker skin are neglected. Many Asians love to pile on their skin whitening cream to make themselves look white. That is why Asians often use an umbrella outdoors and sometimes always wear long sleeves - to prevent their skin from becoming darker. Most celebs in Asia have very light skin. That's just the way they think. Having said that, Asian females are the most feminine, attractive, sexy women on this planet IMHO.

Republican Representatives and Senators may also be considering the impact of continuing to support Trump on their own chances of re-election to Congress. While incumbents can be seen to have some advantages, not all would be defending unassailable majorities.

So what you are saying is that it is a good thing the Russian people voted in a master for them so they can be good little sheep ?

If you want to see corruption, take a look at Russia, the way the USSR's industries were split among the Putin cronies who became instant billionaires should tell you something.


Every American who votes for Clinton is being a good little sheep too.

Oh, and your theory has one big hole in it. When the Soviet Union collapsed Putin wasn't in power, instead it was Yeltsin who became the first president of the Russian Federation. It was under his rule when those industries were unfairly split.

Yeltsin sought a successor which could protect him, his family and the oligarchs, that became Putin. Putin was helped into power by these oligarchs, so the Yeltsin and Putin cronies are interchangeable.
Putin is corrupt and has been ever he stole the money when he was in charge of the food program for the poorest of the poor in St. Petersburg. But be my guest to continue to support him, but do it on all his "achievements" not on the media image he created for himself.

But this treat is about Trump, not Putin.

Well, this escalated quickly...

But honestly, the truth about Trump has always been there. Somebody like this can't treat women with respect. He'll probably only talk to female foreign leaders when they are physically attractive.

If Trump gets elected against all odds: He has to bribe the congresspeople into submission. And then he'll use his presidential pardons liberally to save them from prosecution. If he's corrupt enough, he could survive in office...

Were they Sanders supporters to begin with, though? That is the question.

Seeing so many people say that Sanders sold them out after he threw his support to Clinton indicates that they were not really FOR Sanders as much as for his proposals and AGAINST Clinton (who was pulled to the left and forced to accept some of Sanders's proposals).

So is America under Hillary, which is a shame. America was once the greatest nation on Earth.

Let us not be dramatic, nor unrealistic. Hillary will do fine as all Presidents have done. Hillary is not to blame for Trump, just the people who voted for this Buffoon should take the blame. Not even congress can be blamed and that is saying something.


America's position has been slowly weakening under Obama. I believe the trend will continue under Hillary. I'd rather see American take care of her own and do what's in her own best interest. I believe Trump is better suited to achieve that.


China's positioning is getting more strong, that has nothing to do with Obama. As I understand it, Trump wants to turn his back on the rest of the world, well then the influence of America will weakening even more and more rapidly.

It has gotten worse because people can now vividly imagine how Trump treats women. Before, it was just slander: "Cruz, your wife looks like an old hag!" or something like that. In the same manner, a picture is more vivid than a text describing the same stuff. It's more memorable, it is more accessible.

Amazing how some Trump supporters in the forum are still in denial. This is not Hillary vs. Trump, much less a comparison between Bill Clinton and Trump. This is the very endophagy of the GOP. Trump does not have wide appeal inside the Party and factions have turned against each other. Every candidate (and their supporters) should know that vying for high office leads to scrutiny of the past. Seemingly irrelevant items get pushed into the national spotlight. In this case, it is not irrelevant - it is borderline admission of unwanted sexual advances. Anyone thinking this is the last or biggest piece of dirt to be uncovered about Trump before the election think again. He made too many enemies - more indeed than the Clintons.

Trump pitched conservatives against each other, and evangelicals against each other. His presence in national politics has been destructive to conservatism. Hopefully when this is all over, a more progressive group of conservatives will take over and make the GOP a party that stands for core American values of equality, free enterprise and small government and is welcoming to every American.

You are confusing Trump's traits of being a bully with being "strong". Bullies by their very nature aren't strong. They're mentally and emotionally weak people, who bully to try and cover up for their own deep insecurities about themselves.

A strong leader doesn't lash out at others. A strong leader doesn't make snap decisions based on wild emotions of the moment. A strong leader doesn't get into arguments over petty altercations with journalists or beauty pageant contestants. A strong leader is one that takes a measured, thoughtful approach to a situation, based on facts, and not based on emotion. They take into account as many variables as possible, and they act in a rational manner.

Despite the conservatives' assertion to the contrary, we've had such a leader over the last 8 years. But that's because conservatives believe that a "strong" leader IS someone who bullies others and offers threats every time they don't get their way. That's why they've backed Donald Trump up til now.

Donald Trump is the kind of "leader" who will be played like a fiddle by even second-rate politicians around the world, and his ignrance will get Americans killed.
