Trump, of course, has refused to release his tax returns, citing various reasons: the IRS is auditing them, they’re too complicated for ordinary people to understand, they won’t show anything not already revealed in a detailed financial disclosure form he filed with the government, as required. None of those really passes the sniff test: There’s nothing about beingaudited that prevents disclosure; some voters surely are smart enough to understand Trump’s returns; and Trump’s financial disclosure forms don’t reveal two basic things: his income or the amount he pays in taxes.

Why aren't you harping on Hilldog's emails? What is she hiding?

Unlike Trump's tax return, those emails involved national security.

      Trump’s bad week is a ‘nightmare’ for the GOP:

      Republican leaders and strategists are unnerved by Donald Trump’s erratic attacks on a Latina beauty queen and other outbursts this week, increasingly fearful that the GOP nominee is damaging his White House hopes and doing lasting harm to the party in the campaign’s final stretch.

      Party officials said they are newly embarrassed by Trump’s impulsive behavior and exasperated by his inability to concentrate on his change message and frame the race as a referendum on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to interviews with more than two dozen of them.

        Fox News Poll: Clinton ahead of Trump after debate, fear motivating both sides:

        The consequences of the debate, which voters score as a win for Clinton by nearly three-to-one, are even clearer on other measures.  Trump’s honesty rating is down, most still say he doesn’t have the right temperament, and over half wouldn’t be comfortable with him as president.

        Meanwhile, more voters now see Clinton as honest than Trump, the number who say she has the right temperament is up, and over half think her long tenure in government is a positive.  Plus, her support increased among women, non-whites, and younger voters.

            What in the world is: center left, to the center right? Is that like, one size fit all just so I have your vote?

            That catch as many as you can comment by Hillary will be used as often as necessary up to election day.

            Expect her to be more of what more people want then store it away in a basement somewhere with the

            other basement dwellers she's trying to win over after election day.

                  I think you're right, dr.  I believe that Trump just had his wet finger in the air, testing to see which way the wind blew.  He didn't want to start off by insulting, but instead let Hillary do the most trash talking.  The gloves will come off w/ this next debate, I reckon.   If we're lucky, he'll make her so angry she'll stroke out on national TV.

                  I haven't read much on it, but just skimmed over the headlines, but I wonder if there really is anything to the charge that Hillary was using a receiver in her ear as well as getting a copy of the questions ahead of time...plus using signals to the moderator to cue up the next favorable question?

                    Donald Trump Called a Female Journalist the C Word to Her Editor Over a Story He Never Read:

                    Donald Trump called journalist Jennifer Lin the c word -- to her editor -- in retaliation for a story of hers that he never actually read. This is such typical Trump it burns.

                    Donald Trump is making headlines for his misogynistic abuse of the winner of 1996’s Miss Universe Pageant, Alicia Machado.

                    Sadly she is hardly alone in getting the Donald Treatment. Donald Trump consistently verbally abuses women.

                    Jennifer Lin, a former financial correspondent in New York City for The Philadelphia Inquirer, wrote Thursday morning about the time Donald Trump called her the c word — to her editor — in retaliation for a story of hers that he never actually read. This is such typical Trump it burns.

                    First Trump called Lin and screamed at her, peppering her with the word “sh*t” to describe her writing. (It turned out he had never actually read her story so he was calling it “sh*t” for no reason.)

                    “Then he called my editor in Philadelphia, Craig Stock. Now it was Craig’s turn to “Hold for Mr. Trump,” Lin wrote in Billy Pen.

                    “Craig was treated to the same Trumpian wordplay, but got an added treat. Trump referred to me as ‘that c*nt.’”

                    And the gold, “Craig, a calm Iowan, asked Trump what was wrong with the story. He explained that The Inquirer would run a correction if the paper had made an error. Trump snapped that he didn’t read the story.”

                    Trump told the editor that no one reads the story. He read the headline and he didn’t like it. This, too, is typical Trump. He fires first and asks questions later.

                    Donald Trump called her boss to complain about a story he hadn’t even read and yet felt entitled to call her the c word to her boss.

                    Trump’s harassment of female journalists is nothing new. In fact, this story repeats itself so often it’s as if Trump were Roger Ailes, before he got busted for serial sexual harassment.

                    But then Donald Trump defended Ailes even when numerous women said they had been sexually harassed by the former Fox News chief, ironically claiming to do so based on what he “read”.

                    Journalist Selina Scott had to threaten Trump with a lawyer in order to get him to stop harassing her after she rebuffed his advances and had the temerity to do her job by showing footage of him bragging and then getting busted exaggerating. In other words, she told the truth about Trump and refused his advances, and so he spent years retaliating against her.

                      You really need to quit the C&P jobs, Teddy.  Unless you have permission to do so, it's a copyright violation to use all or a substantial part of an article.  Depending upon the website's TOU, you usually CAN quote snippets of the article, but you also need to link to the quoted material, if for nothing else than a courtesy to the reader as well as acknowledging the site from which it originated.   

                      Of course, doing it the right way involves ethics and considering who you support, it's no wonder you lack those.

                      Here's how you should do it:  Secret Service agents: Hillary is a nightmare to work with

                      “Good morning, ma’am,” a member of the uniformed Secret Service once greeted Hillary Clinton.

                      “F— off,” she replied.

                      That exchange is one among many that active and retired Secret Service agents shared with Ronald Kessler, author of “First Family Detail,” a compelling look at the intrepid personnel who shield America’s presidents and their families — and those whom they guard.

                      So, Trump used the "C" word, huh?  Coincidentally, that's what I call you when I read your posts, only I use an equally offensive modifier in front of it.

                      The "C" word - it's not just for women anymore!

                        Donald Trump Is Seen as Helping Push Asian-Americans Into Democratic Arms:

                        LAS VEGAS — On paper at least, Asian-Americans seem like perfect Republicans. Many are small-business owners. Their communities tend to be more culturally conservative. And a lot of them, having fled oppressive Communist governments, found comfort in the Republican Party’s aggressive anti-Communist policies.

                        But in what could be a significant realignment of political allegiance, Asian-Americans are identifying as Democrats at a quicker pace than any other racial group. And many Republicans worry this election will only accelerate that trend, damaging their party for years to come with what is now thefastest-growing minority in the country.

                        The Republican presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump, is not helping. His attacks on the Chinese — which he has sometimes delivered in a crude, mocking accent — are a feature of his populist campaign. He has suggested cutting off immigration from the Philippines, citing fears that the longtime American ally poses the same national security threat as countries like Syria and Afghanistan.

                        Mr. Trump’s talk of deporting millions of undocumented immigrants has also stirred up painful memories among a group that has been singled out under American law before, whether by the Chinese Exclusion Act, whichbarred the immigration of Chinese laborers until 1943, or by the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

                        “It’s like we’re going back in time,” said Marc Matsuo of Las Vegas, who grew up in Hawaii with parents of Japanese ancestry and recalled how his family used to feel uncomfortable expressing their heritage, to the point they would not speak Japanese. He now helps register Asian-Americans to vote. “I was always brought up that you don’t talk about religion, you don’t talk about politics. Not anymore.”

                        Hillary Clinton’s campaign has a resident staff member in Las Vegas dedicated to Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders. Staff members and volunteers here speak Chinese, Korean, Hindi and Tagalog, the Filipino language. The campaign has recently been conducting native language training on how to use voting machines in a local Chinese cultural center. Volunteers are sent to court supporters in Buddhist temples.

                          Donald Trump Is Seen as Helping Push Asian-Americans Into Democratic Arms part 2:

                          Hillary Clinton’s campaign has a resident staff member in Las Vegas dedicated to Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders. Staff members and volunteers here speak Chinese, Korean, Hindi and Tagalog, the Filipino language. The campaign has recently been conducting native language training on how to use voting machines in a local Chinese cultural center. Volunteers are sent to court supporters in Buddhist temples.

                          Republicans’ difficulties with Asian-Americans are similar to those the party has faced with most minority groups. A sense that the party is hostile to immigrants and minorities has driven more Asian-American voters into the Democratic Party lately, political scientists and community leaders said. And if Republicans do not make more of an effort, those voting shifts could harden, just as Hispanics’ voting patterns have.

                          “What we see now are some early indications that people who either leaned toward the Democratic Party or did not identify with either party are now starting to identify as Democrats,” said Karthick Ramakrishnan, a professor of political science at the University of California, Riverside. “This is still a group that is making up its mind,” he added, “but it should be concerning to the Republican Party that you’re starting to see this crystallization.”

                          A national survey in the spring by Asian and Pacific Islander American Vote, a nonpartisan research group, showed “a significant leftward shift” since 2012 among Asian-American registered voters, with 47 percent now identifying with the Democratic Party, compared with 35 percent in 2012. Fifteen percent identified as Republican.

                          In 1992, the year national exit polls started reporting Asian-American sentiment, the group leaned Republican, supporting George Bush over Bill Clinton 55 percent to 31 percent. But by 2012, that had reversed. Asian-Americans overwhelmingly supported President Obama over Mitt Romney — 73 percent to 26 percent, almost the same margin by which Hispanics favored Mr. Obama.

                            I wondered when Hillary stopped using the name Rodham then wondered what it meant backwards

                            ...it means something in the Middle East:

                            Murder

                            and loosely translated means:

                            wrong-doer

                              The figures vary, but I read that 20% of Asian-Americans support Trump. That's not bad, and probably about the norm among that particular demographic support for a Republican candidate.

                              Meet some of the Chinese Americans voting for Trump

                              Tao Yu, a 48-year-old Chinese American woman, said meeting Donald Trump was a wonderful memory. “I told him, ‘Mr Trump, I’ve supported you from day one,’ and he kept telling me ‘Thank you,’” Yu remembered. “He is nothing like the mean and loud person the media has pictured. He is a gentleman.”

                              Yu, one of a group called “Chinese Americans for Trump,” was invited with a group of approximately 40 other members to meet with Donald Trump at a private event near his Beverly Hills home in June. The group took a picture with a T-shirt saying “Chinese Americans ♥ Trump.”

                              Facebook page: Asian-Americans for Trump

                              Twitter: Asians For Trump

                              I bet Teddy will wait thirty minutes and will post another Asian-American story unfavorable to Trump.
