    @worf again --

    btw, I just came across this one -- and it's a real quote, not a made-up one:

    Trump, 2008: "I know Hillary and I think she’d make a great president or vice-president."

    @worf --

    "Hillary has shamed her gender more than Trump ever will."


    Be specific.

    We'll be waiting.

    "Shame on those defend her dishonesty."

    Guess what, worf -- Hillary isn't the one with record numbers of lies recorded by multiple major news outlets.

    "She is not trustworthy, and will do anything to gain votes---Barack Obama 2008."

    Except that he never actually said this.

    If you believe otherwise, please present your evidence.

    Be specific.

    We'll be waiting.

    @worf: "Over twenty years ago? Is this the worse Donald has done?"

    He's had a running feud with this woman for over twenty years, including the presidential twitter meltdown this week.

    And no, it isn't the worst, it is the latest example of a life long pattern.

    @worf: "As a layer, why did she defend a rapist of a twelve year old girl?"

    Because she was appointed to be his public defender by the judge.

    And, she worked a plea bargain that resulted in a conviction and prison without the victim being forced to go through a trial that might have resulted in an acquittal.

    The prosecutor in the case praised the way she handled it because it wasn't one he was sure he could win in a trial.

    Memes are fun. Research finds the facts.

    @worf --

    "Didn't Hillary call Monica Lewinsky a "Loony Tune"?"

    1. Hillary's remark had nothing to do with Lewinsky's appearance or ethnicity, but rather with her behavior. Big difference.

    2. Hillary's remark was made in private correspondence, and concerned a woman having an affair with her husband -- in stark contrast to Trump's remarks, which were made loudly, publicly, and about a woman in his employment.

    "Truth be known, Hillary has abused more women than Trump."

    Seriously? Where do you come up with such nonsense?

    "Why did she pay Paula Jones $850,000"

    Hillary didn't pay Jones anything. BILL did settle out of court with Jones -- just as Trump has settled out of court on multiple occasions.

    "and another $800,000 for stuff she stole from the White House..."

    This one was debunked on Snopes. You really ought to check out your claims before you spread false information.

    From snopes: "The Clintons were not "forced" to return any gifts, they were not found to have "stolen" any items, and the aggregate value of the objects in question was much less than $200,000. "

    Truth be known, Hillary has abused more women than Trump. Why did she pay Paula Jones $850,000, and another $800,000 for stuff she stole from the White House when Bill left office? Hmm? As a layer, why did she defend a rapist of a twelve year old girl?

    Referring to the title of this article, Trump is really only shaming himself.

    Trump shamed nobody but himself. He, once again and like always, proved that he is not fit to be President.

    Interestingly enough, the so-called "sex tape" has been shown to be a fake. Donnie is once again bearing false witness (in other words, he's lying through his teeth). Hopefully she will sue his "pants on fire" off, and collect a heathy recompense as a result.

    I imagine most people are glad they never had any interaction with Trump, or their name too could very well be dragged through the mud.

    Mitt Romney has been proven right in everything that I heard or read that he said. Just disappointed that he would not consider a third party instead of bemoaning the demise of the old GOP. He described Trump perfectly and yet it is Trump or Hillary Clinton. If the polls show a Clinton blowout is there any way Trump can be replaced on the ticket?

    I have said over and over since last May that I am no longer a Republican. The Republican party has left me along with others who fill the same way that I do. Trump is not who should be running against Clinton but people were caught up in all of his lies him acting like a little school yard bully, Him putting down women I could go on and on. So this time around I will be voting for Gary Johnson. Utah might be the one State that Johnson will win as so many of people that I know as well as others who I have heard say that Johnson is a good man and he is honest. He was a great Governor for NM and even though there are things that I do not like about him he is so much better than Clinton and Trump.

    I ceratinaly hope it continues to show people why he should not be president. The Feds do need to go after him, heaven knows the congress and senate will not be calling for any hearings or a special prosecutor.

    The Castro connection will cost Trump Florida. He'll lose the Cuban vote now and that was his biggest support. It will be interesting to see if the Feds come after him for violating the embargo.

    What else must Trump do to once and for all confirm he is not of sound mind?! His complete lack of a record from public office aggravated by big blind spots from hiding, among other key things, tax records (contrary to a half century of previous presidential candidates disclosing them), voters are left to take a huge chance based primarily upon his campaign. His ability to lead the free world in ongoing perilous times is illustrated by what he says and does now. Thoughts lead to words leading to actions.

    So, America, take a long close look! His most recent surreal preoccupation with a former Miss Universe, especially in light of unimaginably weighty foreign and domestic issues awaiting our next president, has left even some of his closest allies incredulous. Others it has left in near paralysis. The Republican nominee for President of the United States of America, closing further the small gap in recent polls, apparently spent most of last night (critical, irretrievable hours and efforts down the stretch) obsessing over an issue that most would expect to be the plot of a bad PG-13 movie or the tawdry topic at a college frat party . . . and he is boasting about it.

    I do have to say it is a good smoke screen to cover up a much more serious issue that arose today. New York announced today his "foundation" has been operating without the authorization to be soliciting donations. So he attacks Clinton about her foundation yet we keep forgetting nding out about his foundations many many years ndiscretions.

    Well . . . We've got the leader of the Republican Party cyberstalking Beauty queens.

    Isn't it incredible just how much the once great GOP has fallen?

    I mean come on . . . This is some SICK behavior.

    And Trump thinks it is completely justified.

    And guess what . . . Utah will vote overwhelmingly for Trump.

    Trump is the gift that keeps giving, to Democrats that is. Democrats should hope his mic is not defective for the next debate. The more the man says (or tweets), the worse off it gets. He's living up to the narrative the Democrats tried to paint all along, unhinged.

    The new conservative leader stayed up all night tweeting crazy allegations that hurt the Republican future possibility to get women and latino's to consider voting for Republican candidates. He campaign people must be embarrassed.

    Donald Trump is the smartest man on the planet. He will tell you this himself without any sense of embarrassment or humility. He believes this to be true and will not allow any criticism of himself. Those who dare to take him to task become targets of his unrelenting attacks. It doesn't matter who the person is because Trump believes he is better than everyone else and is entitled to whatever he wants.

    Take the United States presidency as an example of his sense of entitlement. Trump assumes he is the obvious choice. Anything that keeps him from becoming president is due to "a rigged system" and "dishonest, cheating" people who just don't understand how great he is. So he complains and blames others for his failure to achieve what he believes should be his.

    It doesn't matter the target: handicapped reporter, beauty queen, Gold Star family, any woman who doesn't meet his specifications of beauty (his former wives, your wife, your mother, your sister), he will attack with a vengeance although he does it hidden behind a twitter tweet, a call in talk show, a surrogate.

    I wonder how he will degrade and dismiss his campaign manager when he loses.

    She should sue him for libel, Because he's lying about her on the national stage.

    Trump isn't fit to be a dog catcher. What a sad little man.

    His wife posed nude with another woman, perhaps donald shouldn't be making accusations from his glass tower.

    She should get a restraining order against Trump.

    Isn't he cyberstalking her?

    The low-life behavior the Republican leader is just awful, don't you think?

    Donald Trump has NO RIGHT to harass her . . . No matter how many billions of dollars he might have.
