    Trump should NOT quit.

    He's bold, brash, greedy, mean-spirited, heartless, mendacious, delusional, and proudly unaware.

    Face it folks . . . Donald Trump PERSONIFIES the GOP.

    FOX News and contributors scramble to make excuses for Donald J. Trump. They have fallen into the sewer and cannot get up. They fiercely battle for his integrity as they fight for words to clarify his actions.

    It is only a matter of time before Trump fires back with something far worse.

    The GOP screwed up big time by letting him be the nomination during the big national convention. Now don't be looking around for a scapegoat to go down with your sinking ship. Good luck bailing out water from your already sinking Titanic.

    And consider this: Trump has "apologized" (if you can call it that) for what he SAID. But he has not apologized at all for what he DID.

    There is a HUGE difference.

    There are thousands of other Americans who have served prison time or on sex offender registries for similar offenses. Trump belongs in prison with other sex offenders.

    His promise yesterday to be "a good man from now on" is the same kind of thing heard from thousands of drug addicts, sex offenders, and others suffering from compulsive behaviors they cannot control. They will lie and cheat and steal and promise anything to avoid taking responsibility for what they have done. "Give me another chance," they plead. But until they are forced to feel the consequences of their actions through prison or other severe punishment, all those promises are hollow. It takes more than a promise to find the courage and determination to actually overcome compulsive behavior. You can ask any alcoholic, porn addict, or pedophile.

    What he is doing is called Avoidance Behavior. We are witnessing that behavior from him right now.

    Clinton infidelity results in impeaching hearings by conservatives.

    Trump infidelity results in being nominated as the voice of the conservative movement.

    What a difference 20 years can make. It has been nice through the last two administrations to have two good men who honor their wives, have raised good daughters, and haven't put the nation through sorted news we can't let our kids see. Is this truly the best we have to offer?

    What did you expect? This is the guy who believes that quitting is for losers. Donald Trump will double down, ignore whatever he has done because he doesn't think he's done anything offensive, and he will continue to offend even if he got to the White House.

    This is a man who should not be allowed to be around women, period. He cheats on his wives, he covets his daughter, he is a rude, vile man who is constantly judging women as to their sexual attractiveness. He has been committing sexual assault all his adult life, fighting in the trenches in the New York dating scene, avoiding sexually transmitted diseases as his Vietnam experience, and grabbing any woman who appeals to his misguided sense of masculinity who gets near.

    Now he accuses Bill Clinton of doing worse, but it is all innuendo. Yes, Bill Clinton loves women, but he has never treated them like Trump treats the women around him. Trump is in a class by himself, and his top advisers, Rudy Guiliani and Newt Gingrich, share his attitude toward women with three wives. While Gingrich was accusing Bill Clinton of bad behavior in office, he was having an affair while Speaker of the House.

    Wasn't there a national sports team owner who was caught on tape too, with remarks FAR less egregious than this-- and he was shamed and humiliated and forced to give up ownership of his team??
    Are we going to require that of him for that-- and give this considerably worse by Trump a pass??

    Trump's goal, his intention has never been to represent the Republican Party. Rather, he seeks fame, power, money, glory. The revealed tax information reveals a man that is phony, just like Romney predicted. Trump lost nearly $1B in the '90's through poor business practices. He is worth much less than he claims.

    Trump University was phony, frauding many out of their money.

    Trump "apologized" for saying stupid things. But no apology for his behavior?

    Trump then points the finger at the Clinton's, claiming they are worse. The race to the bottom continues. Why must we, Americans, settle for this? Neither Trump nor Hillary are deserving or worthy of the presidency. Hillary's "pay to play" practices as Sec of State enriched the Clintons at the expense of her office and the country.

    We can do much better.

    The RNC must find someone they can put forward as a write-in candidate.

    Democrats, do the right thing and present someone else as a write-in for your side. Let's have an election with decent candidates from both sides, please.

    I don't think he's got it in him. I think all he knows how to do is stay on the bridge and sink the ship. The trouble is, he's also got the conspiracy streak in him. He's already cast the seeds of 'it's rigged' to buffer a potential, now almost certain, loss.
    I think this man has it in him also to cause serious damage, if not something close to a coup, when he loses.

    What an unmitigated disaster. Our nation deserves so much better. Both HRC and Trump are completely unacceptable candidates for president.

    Did anyone really expect him to do something honorable or self-sacrificing for the good of the country?

    I'm kind of amazed that this is such a controversy. I don't think we learned anything new about Trump on Friday, why the outrage now?

    Pence is the man who should step out. Take a moral stand and not support such a deplorable person. THAT would say something to the rest of the country. Trump would be left with no VP weeks away from the election. Then who's he going to find? Rush Limbaugh?

    Trump dismisses GOP calls to quit race


    Of course he does.

    This is not about the GOP,
    This is not about AMERICA,
    this is about one thing, and one thing only -- Donald J. Trump!

    Trump supporters are falling off. Prence's reputation is ruined because he defends Trump's boldface lies.

    Time to call out the secret weapon, Sarah Palin!

    His ego will never let him step down but I think the GOP has shown some integrity the last 24 hours and there is still plenty of time to ensure after November 8 that the candidacy of Donald Trump becomes nothing more then an embarrassing footnote in history.
