Trump is bringing him so he can say, "See, Obama's own family doesn't like the Obama- Hillary administration."

    Obama is not running for president, so that is a waste of time.  The two worst people running for office.  People are voting for the best of the worst, so that is not going to make a difference who people vote for.  And like I stated before, most people don't even know who Malik Obama is.

      Condi Rice responds to report Trump called her a 'bitch' in 2006 : 'Can't wait until November 9!':

      Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice responded Tuesday to a resurfaced report from 2006 that Donald Trump called her a "bitch" in a speech, telling CNN's KFile in an email that she "can't wait until November 9!"

      "Condoleezza Rice, she's a lovely woman, but I think she's a bitch," Trump said in a speech at the Learning Annex in 2006, according to a story in the New York Daily News covering the event. "She goes around to other countries and other nations, negotiates with their leaders, comes back and nothing ever happens."
      Trump's comments were first resurfaced by Deadspin on Tuesday. CNN's KFile was also tipped off to the 2006 comments Tuesday morning. When asked if she had any response to the reported transcript of Trump's remarks, Rice simply wrote back, "Exactly. Can't wait until November 9!"
      Rice took aim at Trump earlier this month on her Facebook page following the revelation of his 2005 hot mic comments where he said he could force himself on women.
      "Enough! Donald Trump should not be president. He should withdraw," she wrote on her page on October 8.
      The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment on his 2006 comments.
      Steve Felt, an attendee at the event who was quoted in the New York Daily News report, told CNN's KFile on Tuesday that he remembered Trump's comment about Rice.
      "He went on a tirade about politics, probably 15 minutes into his talk about real estate," Felt said. "Most people weren't there to hear about politics and most people left. I left after about 45 minutes."
      Trump made numerous speeches in the mid-2000s for the Learning Annex, a company which provides continuing education courses for adults.
      And while video doesn't exist of Trump's 2006 comments, which took place at the Javits Center in New York City in November of that year, in another Learning Annex speech from which a partial video was posted online in 2007, Trump appears to make reference to the comment.
      The partial video, from a March 2007 speech in Toronto, starts with Trump mid-sentence, saying, "bitch, do you believe this? So I took heat," before he goes onto explain what he had said about Rice.
      "But what I said was this, she gets out an airplane cameras all over the place and she waves, 'hi.' She then goes and sits down with some dictator, they put the chairs at 45 degree angle and they have a photo shoot and she waves, 'hi, hi everybody.' She then gets back on the place and she waves again and nothing happens," he said. "Has she made any deals? Honestly, has this woman made one deal that anybody knows, even if it was a bad deal. I'd even take a bad deal. She doesn't make any deals."
      Representatives for the Learning Annex and the Javits Center did not respond to requests for comment from CNN's KFile on this story.
      Trump was more diplomatic speaking to CNN's Wolf Blitzer in 2007 on the former secretary of state.
      "And Condoleezza Rice, who's a lovely woman, but she never makes a deal," Trump said. She doesn't make deals. She waves. She gets off the plane. She waves. She sits down with some dictator, 45-degree angle. They do the camera shot. She waves again. Gets back on the plane. She waves. No deal ever happens."

        The World Doesn’t Think Donald Trump Would Make a Great President, Poll Finds:

        Pew poll finds that large majorities in Europe and Asia doubt Trump's ability to do the right thing on world affairs


        People across Europe and Asia strongly believe presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump would do a poor job of world affairs as U.S. President, according to new research released by Pew Research Center.

        In a survey looking into the public image of the U.S. around the world, Trump inspires little confidence: 85% of the Europeans surveyed doubted Trump’s ability to do the right thing regarding world affairs. Among them, 92% of Swedes and 89% of Germans said they had no confidence in Trump’s ability to handle the international aspect of the presidency. Some 87% of Australians and 82% of Japanese agreed.

        The mogul enjoys slightly higher levels of support in China, where only 40% said they had no confidence in his leadership. He also rated comparatively better among European’s Euroskeptic or anti-immigrant parties. In the U.K., 30% of rightwing U.K. Independence Party (UKIP) voters said they had a positive view of Trump. In Germany, people who hold a favorable view of right-wing and anti-refugee party Alternative for Germany (AfD) were more likely to hold confidence in Trump.

        The poll showed that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clintoninspired confidence from the majority of countries surveyed. Across the 10 E.U. nations polled, 59% have faith that she will do the right thing in world affairs. Greece was the notable exception, where 78% say they have no confidence in her ability to deal with world affairs.

        But neither candidates enjoy the popularity of U.S. President Barack Obama, who received favorable rating on foreign affairs from 77% of Europeans. In 15 of the 16 countries surveyed, majorities expressed confidence in his proficiency when it comes to handling world affairs. The exception, once again, was Greece, where respondents felt Russian President Vladimir Putin was the stronger leader.

        Overall, the U.S. enjoys largely positive views around the world. At least 50% of people in every nation surveyed held favorable opinions of the U.S., with higher-than-average ratings in Poland (74%), Italy (72%) and Japan (72%).

        The poll was conducted in 10 European nations, four major Asia-Pacific countries, Canada and the U.S.

          I read the NY Daily News every day. There aren't too many more newspapers that are more anti Trump then them. It's very rare for them to print anything bad about Hillary, but they did today. Why don't you post that?

          I'm not the only one who feels that way. Just read today's Voice of the People.

            Bill O’Reilly to Donald Trump: ‘Stop whining’

            To Donald Trump’s fans, he’s a take-no-guff tough guy. To his critics, he’s a skin-thinned crybaby. And at least one Trump-friendly pundit, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, wants him to retire the act.

            On Monday’s “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” O’Reilly said the Republican presidential candidate should quit “whining” at the debate and instead focus on a few issues that matter to him. The third and final presidential debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is set to take place Wednesday night at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.

            “Stop whining. Stop that and say, ‘Look, I got three things I want to say to you tonight: bang, bang, bang,” O’Reilly told Colbert.

            “It’s rigged, it’s rigged, it’s rigged,” the late-night host replied.

            “That’s whining,” O’Reilly said. “He should have a little buzzer that whenever he whines — baaa!”

            O’Reilly suggested that Trump and Clinton would have a chance to win over voters if they could convince the American people that they can help them. He said his Fox colleague Chris Wallace, who is moderating the debate, should press Trump on the specifics of his various proposals, such as taking oil from ISIS or making Mexico pay for a massive border wall.

            Colbert joked that Trump would not answer the question and instead talk about the importance of being tough.

            “Here’s what we do,” O’Reilly said. “We have your band, and as soon as he starts that, they start playing. As soon as he starts that stuff, that band starts playing.”

                That is your job to post Hillary news, I don't think it is much.  But trump makes it so easy.

                Here ya go.

                WASHINGTON — A top State Department official allegedly offered the FBI a “quid pro quo” if the agency downgraded the classification of one of the emails on Hillary Clinton’s server, new documents the FBI released Monday show.

                According to notes of an internal interview with one of the FBI’s own officials, Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy tried last summer to get the FBI to change a classified email to unclassified status, offering to let the FBI put agents in more foreign countries in exchange.

                That conversation allegedly happened during the interagency review of Clinton’s emails in preparation for their public release, as the FBI and State Department debated over what information should be withheld from the public.

                More than 100 emails were eventually deemed classified after the fact.

                  The names of all involved were redacted in the release.

                “(Redacted) received a call from (redacted) of the International Operations Division (IOD) of the FBI, who ‘pressured’ him to change the classified email to unclassified. (redacted) indicated he had been contacted by Patrick Kennedy, undersecretary of state, who had asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo,’ ” read the interview notes. “(Redacted) advised that, in exchange for marking the email unclassified, State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.”

                An unnamed official alleges that Kennedy followed up this request by asking during a private meeting whether the FBI could “see their way to marking the email unclassified?”

                “According to (redacted), Kennedy spent the next 15 minutes debating the classification of the email and attempting to influence the FBI to change its markings.”

                 

                Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump stands next to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the second presidential debate at Washington University in St. Louis on Oct. 9, 2016.

                That exchange could create another headache for Clinton, who for more than a year has struggled to move beyond questions about her private email server and whether she shared classified information in an unclassified setting.

                Donald Trump’s campaign quickly jumped on the news, accusing Clinton of collusion.

                “These FBI documents provide undeniable proof that Hillary Clinton colluded with the FBI, (Department of Justice) and State Department to cover up criminal activity at the highest levels,” retired Gen. Michael Flynn, a top surrogate, said in a statement.

                But the FBI said in a statement that there was never any “quid pro quo,” clarifying that the FBI officer was actually the one who initially raised the issue of getting Kennedy to allow more FBI officials in foreign countries.

                “Any assertion that this was somehow a tit-for-tat or a quid pro quo, or exchange in that manner is, frankly, insulting,” State Department spokesman Michael Toner said.

                “It’s very well known that there were disputes between the State Department and other agencies about classification. It’s not unusual,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said.

                        Speaking of polls, Trump is only up by 4 points in KY probably because Mitch McConnell told him to stop whining about voter fraud.

                        The good news is Trump said if elected, he would tell Congress to put term limits on their selves. If it comes up in the debate, Clinton can explain how that would take a Constitutional Amendment to him.

                          Stack you forget Governor Walker won 2 elections in 3 years.  The left threw everything at his recall and he still won.  All it takes is for the "silent majority" to get pumped up enough to vote, and they are.  I think Trump will take Wisconsin by a narrow margin.

                          "I think Trump will take Wisconsin by a narrow margin."

                          Apparently the "silent majority" has remained silent for a very long time because your state voted against both George H.W. and George W. Reagan was the last Republican Wisconsin voted for.

                            REALLY!  National poll from youtube, REALLY!  That is so funny.

                            Google,  national poll

                            Youtube did not do the poll. Maybe you should just watch it...

                            No comment about the Daily News story on Hillary?

                              I saw this written on a Facebook page earlier:

                              Whenever the Washington Redskins win their final home game before a presidential election, the party that currently holds the White House wins. (The lone election since 1936 it didn’t hold true was 2012)

                              According to this person, that clinches the win for Hillary. I had to point out that their last game prior to the election will be when the 'Skins will play the Bengals in London...and Washington is the home team in the contest. (meaning getting to choose the color uniforms;  the visitors get to call the coin toss)

                              "THAT GAME DOESN'T COUNT!!!!!!  NOT IN THE FORMULA!!!" was the reply.  I assured him it counted, maybe not in the "formula", but it certainly will count in the standings.  I also had to point out even if it didn't count, maybe the 2012 outlier was the start of a new statistical trend.


                              A people that elect corrupt politicians, impostors, thieves and traitors are not victims...but accomplices.
