Trump requires his own Video Megathread. Just too hilarious. His unabashed vitriol (which I love), is priceless. And of course, he loves to shine the light on all the dark corners. Just awesome. As a country were in such deep shit that Trump's candidacy is looking increasingly more attractive.

Here's todays interview on the Iran deal (so to speak):

Say what you will, but at least he speaks what he thinks. We'd be in a lot better shape if most politicians did that.

You don't have to "like" someone for them to be an effective President.
The Donald can't eff things up any worse...

Trump has my vote until I see someone else speak the truth
I will say he's going to shake this election up and force the candidates to take a strong position on the pressing issues we're facing today. No more circular logic, and dodging. I mean my god how will an actual debate play out between the regulars and a professional TV personality who's feeds on confrontation? Gonna be interesting.

Rand Paul would, however, tear Trump a new ******* in a one on one debate. Of course, the "thrilla in manila" would be Trump vs. Christie [laugh]

"The Apprentice" Presidential Version...
He's going to be his biggest opponent. If his brash arrogance can't maintain a civil enough level it will hurt his favor. If his opponents are smart they're doing their homework right now on how to exactly push his buttons and draw his impatient attitude with the intention of tarnishing his appearance.

Not sure he'd be the best president, but I like how he's saying exactly what he wants to national audiences. Lot of these things need to be said. Can't wait to see him in some debates.

The republican machine will keep him out of the race by hook or by crook. Be kinda fun to see him sue the RNC if they do.

Should be fun.

Like him or not he's speaks the truth with no bull s$&?
But Obama can!!!!

Trump has my vote until I see someone else speak the truth

So what's the truth? Loves universal health care, wanted a massive tax on the rich to give to others (how socialist), loved the obama Trillion dollar stimulus. With those positions, you couldn't even call him a RINO since he's FAR FAR left of even McCain.

Oh yeah and he had always supported assault weapons bans. Speaking the truth.

All they need to do is point out his positions, not the lies he's telling now but the ones he's had for decades. His effusive praise of Hillary Clinton and her ability. He loves her so much she was invited to his wedding and sat in the front row.

A good illustration of Trump. Using the gov't as a weapon to take peoples houses and do it at below market value.

So because he's blunt and saying some popular things now, why would any of you over look his 20 years of being a crony capitalist liberal?

I just eluded to the fact that he speaks his mind. Not many politicians do and I respect that.

Can you really say he speaks his mind though? I think a better way to describe it is he tells particular audiences what they want to hear. He's trashing Hillary now but in 2012 after her term as secretary of state he was praising her and her ability. He's pro life in front of a conservative crowd but in the interview on NBC 10 years prior he's liberal on abortion and very pro choice.

He really likes to hear himself speak so much he takes all positions on issues over time. He's just an act seeking attention and approval.

Whoopy his opinions on things change. I guess the first thought that pops in mind should be the only thing I ever think on it. Got it. He is wildly more successful than any of the politicos in either party in this race. The political class has run us into the ground.

People can change their minds dude. Name me one politician who hasn't "evolved".

Do you change your opinion on a say Hillary 180 degrees in 2 years? Flip completely and assault weapons ban, want socialist tax takings to fund others but now be Mr. Capitalist, want universal HC now say the less than universal HC is the worst thing ever.

He's shoveling sh1t to naive people who are buying it (short term). These issues are not things you change 180 degrees on, they are cut and dry issues.

There's also the way of: As much as the left hates the person, the better the person might be, and better chances he may have to win.

They're not all over Paul yet, but it seems like the very fact of Trump running gives them the hives, food for thought.

Ummm, yeah. I really don't want to know what is going on in Donald's mind. LOL

Like him or not he's speaks the truth with no bull s$&?
Truth <> Opinion. It's truth that Univision is run by the Mexican government? Truth that he would have negotiated prisoner release faster? Truth that "triple sanctions" would have made a better Iran deal???? C'mon. This is simple. Truth is truth. Opinion is opinion. You might be banging your beer on the arm of your LayZBoy and yelling "F'Yeah, Murrica" when he talks. That doesn't mean he's a good Presidential candidate.

Oh yes he can. Back in the 80's, I was a somewhat closet Perot fan. I had the same thought. "He can't screw it up any more." Trump makes Perot look like Al Einstein. And Perot would have mucked it up far more than I could have ever imagined.

I'm not sure about him yet, but the fact that he's not a career politician is weighing in his favor.

Because, f*ck you, that's why. [rofl2]

Hillary isn't a career pol, she was a senator for 8 yrs, secretary of state for 4. Jeb only has a small political career, john edwards was not, deval was not, Fiorina isn't, christie isn't, etc.

I don't like career pols either. The ones who stay in the same position for decades seems to be much much worse than those who move offices. The bidens, kennedy, barney frank, etc. Get very crooked and out of touch.

I definitely do not want a nominee who has never run for office before and run for POTUS. They are going to make mistakes and lose the race. i like ben carson but I wish he'd run for Senate in MD or MI his home state. He's not going to win so he could make a very good HHS secretary.

I like how some here kill RINO's but would support a guy who was a D for many years and has some very very liberal positions and is all over the map. Would they have loved romney if he just spoke bluntly?

Actually they are all over Rand. He is the most targeted person by the dems. Followed by two people most everyone here hates: Christie and Bush.

Trump isn't even being mentioned by the party apparatus.

The Democratic National Committee has unleashed relentless attacks on a handful of GOP candidates in the ever-widening 2016 presidential field, while virtually ignoring others.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush have emerged as the DNC’s top punching bags, while the committee has mostly disregarded other campaigns — including that of businessman Donald Trump, who trails only Bush in some recent polls.

The Hill tallied the DNC's social media mentions of Republican presidential contenders, scanning press releases, tweets and Facebook posts from July 2014 through June 2015, to see whom the group has been hitting the most over the past year.

Paul ranks as the DNC's top target, with 203 mentions. Christie follows with 202 attacks, and Bush trails closely behind him with 199.

With a slew of declared candidates and even more potential contenders, the DNC has spread its fire wide. The DNC has hit 17 potential Republican contenders over the last year.

That's a marked contrast from the 2012 cycle, when most attacks were aimed at Mitt Romney, who was seen as the likely GOP nominee early on.

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry comes fourth in total mentions with 162, followed by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who were the target of 159 and 147 DNC statements or social media posts respectively. Also on the DNC's target list, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) has 96 mentions.

A slew of longshot bids have also drawn punches from the DNC, with former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina at 19, Dr. Ben Carson with 15 mentions, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) the target of 13, businessman Donald Trump at 10, and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) garnering six mentions.

The large number of GOP candidates could pose a challenge for the DNC over where to direct their fire.

“The profusion of candidates and any drama their competition generates may suck attention away from Democrats as they attempt to define the 2016 election and recruit donors and volunteers,” said Michael Cornfield, research direct for Global Center for Political Engagement.

While Paul, Christie and Bush have drawn the most attention overall from the DNC, the group's targets have changed as Republican contenders enter the race and slide up and down in the polls. That's forced the DNC to keep their focus on a broad field.

“The DNC mentions GOP candidates whenever it sees a chance to highlight a difference between the two parties,” Cornfield added. “As manifest in something a leading GOP candidate said or something that just broke in the news.”

In July 2014, well before any declared candidates, Christie received the most GOP mentions with 10, but Paul garnered seven attacks and Walker six, reflecting their high standing in early GOP polls.

By career politician I don't mean it's always been their career, I mean they've decided to make it their career for more than a term or two, as the named individuals have (except for Fiorina - I have no idea who she is).
