Trump campaign coordinator resigns after blaming Obama for racism:

A volunteer coordinator for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in Ohio resigned on Thursday afternoon after the Guardian published a video interview in which she said there was “no racism” until President Obama came into office and that black people who’ve struggled to succeed since the 1960s have no one to blame but themselves.

“If you’re black and you haven’t been successful in the last 50 years, it’s your own fault,” Kathy Miller, chair of the Republican nominee’s campaign in Mahoning County, Ohio, said in the interview. “You’ve had every opportunity, it was given to you.”

“You’ve had the same schools everybody else went to,” Miller continued. “You had benefits to go to college that white kids didn’t have. You had all the advantages and didn’t take advantage of it. It’s not our fault, certainly.”

She added: “I don’t think there was any racism until Obama got elected. We never had problems like this. … Now, with the people with the guns, and shooting up neighborhoods and not being responsible citizens, that’s a big change, and I think that’s the philosophy that Obama has perpetuated on America.”

    Trump's Florida spokesperson resigns as campaign responds to allegations of Cuba payoffs:

    It seems almost impossible that, on a morning where the Republican nominee is urging America to watch a sex tape as part of an effort to shame a woman he hasn’t seen in over a decade, and dealing with an expanding investigation into his slush fund/"charity" where the list of violations seems to grow every day, that there could be another big wave about to break over the Trump campaign.

    Readers of the Miami Herald are waking up to more news about Trump's activities in Cuba and it has Florida politics on a high boil.

    Revelations that Donald Trump’s hotel and casino company secretly spent money trying to do business in Cuba in violation of the U.S. trade embargo roiled Miami politics Thursday, forcing top Cuban-American Republicans to express concern about Trump’s dealings while maintaining that the allegation isn’t reason enough to disavow the presidential nominee yet.

    Some people may not be at the “disavow” stage, but others clearly are, as Trump’s Florida spokesperson Healy Baumgardner, resigned this week.

    "It is clear the campaign is now going in a direction I am no longer comfortable with."

      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!

      You need to read this, Teddy.

        In 2004, Hillary said  “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants.”  and voted for the appropriations bill to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  Trump says the same thing, yet he's the racist?

        During the '08 Democrat primaries, her campaign started the "birther" rumors, questioning Obama's U.S. citizenship.  They also circulated the now famous picture of Obama in full Muslim garb.  A LOT of people still think there's some controversy to all that and questions to be answered- myself included- but Trump takes all the heat?

         In May 2008, Clinton told USA Today that while Obama was leading the delegate race, she still had a broader political base. Unfortunately, she made that claim in explicitly racial terms, citing an Associated Press poll “that found how Senator Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”  I see...white Americans are the hard-working race, huh?  Why didn't Asians and Hispanics AND blacks take offense to that?

        While not HER quote, her husband Bill said this of Obama "A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee.”.  Hillary has never disavowed it, though.   Trump calls a beauty contestant fat and all hell breaks loose.

        In November of '15, Hillary called people in this country illegal "illegal aliens".  So, it's fine for HER to say "illegal aliens", but not Trump?

        What was up with Hillary and NYC mayor de Blasio making a joke about how lazy black people are?  At an Inner Circle dinner this last year, the two made reference to "colored people's time", which is a racist way of saying  black people are chronically tardy and lethargic.

        In April of this last year, Hillary said she has had experience with wild men when they "get off the reservation".  There's no other way to look at that than implying Native Americans are savages and must be segregated from the rest of society.

        On a black radio show, Hillary pandered to black voters by claiming to always carrying a bottle of hot sauce in her purse.  When Trump pandered to Hispanics by eating a taco bowl, that was racist, but it wasn't when Hillary made her statement?  How does this racism thing work? Anybody?

        If I were a black person, I would find the following insulting...yet they keep supporting her!  Why is that?

        And this.

          Agree on taxes/birth certificate..both hold outs for different reasons. Obama submitted something, whether it's a certificate of

          HIS birth with every line being correct, who knows?...crooked politicians have done similar and worse. Trump's taxes are going

          to be scrutinized and a fire starter, we already know that. Why were so many people after so long able to accept that Obama's

          birth certificate was legitimate? I think because they finally breathed a sigh of relief. They accepted it and wanted the issue to

          go away. Trump's tax issue will not go away, every line of it will be reported on, questioned, sized up and blown up. The powers

          that be in the media want to get their hands on it and are reporting the American people want to know..well, ok but who wants

          to know more? I say who cares. Some say the same. CNN and the likes say release, release, release. It isn't news, it's sheer

          sensationalism. He's been examined he says for the past 15 years..if there was something seriously wrong there and against

          the law, he would be in trouble for it. Unlike Hillary who is untouchable and not because she innocent but because she's protected,

          Trump would be in jail or heavily fined and don't you think that news would leak? 

          I don't want someone elected president who lied for years and got away with it. What's the worst thing you can say about Trump?

          He's rough around the edges? He's a rich business man? He says what's on his mind or is the worst that he wants to make America

          great again. I guess that's the biggest problem, he says he wants to do what you Hillary supporters are insulted with because

          you were all lead along and fooled for so many years that everything was already great. Hillary has so many ties to the Middle East

          and all kinds of countries because she has to, it's more than diplomacy...it has lots to do with the Clinton Foundation and donations

          running in from countries who should be getting backlash instead of support. She and Bilbo have their hands tied because of the

          money. Big, big money. They were bought and the price is you and all of us. Put Hillary in the White House and watch her as

          she stabs you in the back and pads her already stuffed pockets with more donations for favors. Maybe contrails are real...something

          is falling down on you Hillary people. You are convinced a professional liar is the best thing for this country. When disaster strikes she,

          if elected, will be telling us all it's alright. She's used to your weakness and she's used to having her way. Her power is money, why don't

          you let her know it won't work this time? Or are you just too comfortable with how things have been for so long that you settled for 

          what you think can't change? Sad, very sad.

          I agree.

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

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

              Because he's a partisan hack.  He's pretty much to Hillary what Monica was to Bill...maybe not literally, but metaphorically.

                          You have the right to vote, but the responsibility to learn about the candidates.
