"She has no stamina. She shouts. She’s got nothing going for her but being a woman." - article

Donald J. Trump, world known bigot and woman hater, demands Americans follow his dictatorial commands. Making America Hate has been the long and boring thrust of this idiot's campaign. Sadly, his meth addicted fans can't get enough.

Will Hillary destroy the USA like she destroyed Libya?

Hillary and Bill both have not looked well lately, whereas Trump looks stronger than ever. In a debate I would assume Trump would win since Hillary uses the tele-prompt. With this battle I am assuming the media feels Cruz has no chance now. Bernie is still in it however -even though the media is playing this a Trump vs Hillary battle.

No way! Joe Apaio "America's Toughest Sheriff" smokes meth? Jeez Louise, I've lost all faith in mankind now.

If a Sheriff smokes or injects his Meth addiction that is a matter for the Courts in the States.

"Trump reportedly described a Miss Universe who had gained weight as “an eating machine.” He described Rosie O’Donnell as “my nice fat little Rosie” in a 2006 spat. In 2012, he tweeted that Huffington Post editor Arianna Huffington was “unattractive both inside and out.” - article

Donald J. Trump's attack on American Citizens for their gender is clear enough. Only a Meth addicted GOP/Tea freal will vote for this angry old man.

What matters is the trend, not what a poll of voters said in February and last Tuesday Trump won more than half of women in Pennsylvania and Connecticut and just short of a majority in Maryland.

Trump won more than half of women in Pennsylvania and Connecticut

complete falsehood.

“If fighting for women’s health care, and paid family leave, and equal pay is playing the woman card,” she said, “then deal me in.” HR Clinton, article

Trump wants women to stay on the plantation.

That's not a "card", that's Trump's ideology.

President Bigot? The GOP/Tea love this kind of prejudice.

Trump demanded they beat on protesters in his loyalty rally, now Trump wants to beat women.

Just like his Campaign "Manager" who asualted a woman in Florida getting the six foot four a date with the prosecution for assualt.

kc, judging by the protest on Friday the anti-Trump are the haters. Not imagination, it was clear fact.

Hillary used the gender card long ago. Trump put the twist on it to see the candidate for what it is. Nothing spectacular.

"None of this has seemed to bother Trump’s loyal followers in the GOP primaries. But it could be a different matter in the general election, when Republican candidates typically suffer from a gender gap. In every presidential election since 1980, a greater proportion of women than men preferred the Democratic candidate." - article

Stick the fork in the bigot before his racists slaughter innocent people at Cleveland, Ohio "convention".

Four dead in Ohio.

Trump made millions with investment decisions and star tv show. Clinton made millions giving speeches. Nothing more! Remove the gender and Trump is more accomplished.

ONLY in the USA does sex become a major Presidential election issue. Does everyone know and understand why that is such an important issue? The first key word appears to be the word "rights". The problem is that everyone has a different perspective and idea as to what "rights" are. The second key word seems to be the word "equality". The problem is in identifying what equality really means and where, when, how, why and to what that could, should and would apply to. The third is the word "fair". Here too is the problem in identifying what fair really means and in where, when, how, why and to what that could, should and would apply to. Because everyone's priority, morals, ethics and expectations are different, there will always be discourse and argument. The most important things is to be "rational", "realistic", "practical" and "pragmatic" with ideals and values that assure the survival of humanity as well as oneself.

The GOP will be allowed to continue their "war on women," as long as women continue to vote for the GOP.

Trump won more than half of women in Pennsylvania and Connecticut complete falsehood.

So you be the judge. Can Clinton win without men and young people ?

In Pennsylvania alone, Trump received support across the demographic spectrum, winning a majority of Republican men and women, a majority of voters at all income and education levels and voters from cities, suburbs and rural areas, according to results from an exit poll conducted for The Associated Press and television networks by Edison Research. Clinton prevailed with majorities among voters 45 and older, as well as with women, black voters and those looking for an experienced candidate who can win in November, but lost millennials and men to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.

"Trump is more accomplished." - comments

Accomplished at Fraud.

The New York Supreme Court has green lighted prosecution of Donald J. Trump for forty million (¥ 4,253,180,000) in damages, expected to detain the billionaire this Srping, as the court has validated the class action lawsuit based on Trump's theft from thousands of American Citizens..

Trump's damage to the GOP/Tea is more than $40 million.

If the GOP/Tea continues in this disaster it may well surpass the disgust Americans have for George W. Bush's wars costing some seven trillion. Trump certainly looks like a carbon copy of Bush even before becoming a candidate for the office.

Not a Trump supporter, myself, but he happens to be right. Clinton has often played the gender card, so it's fair to call her out on it. Trump has a good business record of empowering women in his business dealings and remunerating them well.

There is nothing more disqualifying than claiming something untrue that is clearly true.

You forgot the muslim, catholic, hispanic & black vote too. Clinton cannot without then either.

Thank you. Yes folks, everything will be fair game. I can't wait to see Hillary react to the Monica Lewinski thing when Trump starts going there. You know he will.

Disparaging women is not something you should do, but Trump does and he has achieved one thing by doing so: he 's given people an impression that he doesn't lie and hide something.

In that sense, it's understandable that he's got many followers. I, however, would say he should not be a leader. He's too radical and emotional.

Yeah, he probably won't be able to help itself - the twice-divorced man with a penchant for Eastern Europe trophy wives attacking Hillary for standing by her man after a transgression she had nothing to do with. Please, bring it on.

Trump won more than half of women in Pennsylvania and Connecticut and just short of a majority in Maryland.

Lizz, women are a minority in the GOP, and the GOP is a minority of American registered voters - and their only other choice was, really, Cruz, who cannot be called an improvement.. Overall, Hillary continues to lead Trump among female voters by double-digits. And that lead will likely be extended as Trump further displays his troglodyte tendencies.

“I don’t think he knows how to talk about them in a modern sensibility way,” said Renshon, adding that the billionaire businessman is not used to having his utterances corrected by anyone.

I wonder if this guy has any friends, or just groupies.

Trump made millions with investment decisions and star tv show. yeah he also hide behind numerous bankruptcy protections all the while protecting his personal wealth and is currently being audited by the IRS, if anybody is a criminal that hides behind the law to get what he wants its Mr Trump

I get why people like Trump. Whether he builds a wall or not, they like how he thinks and they like what he wants to do. Same with a host of other issues. No, we aren't going to ban Muslims, but Trump supporters want someone in the White House who wants to.

But stuff like this is just weird. I think he might be old school in that just being challenged by a woman makes him respond negatively. He certainly isn't doing it to attract voters so I really can't see any upside. Anyone who likes to hear that about Clinton wasn't going to vote for her anyway.

Hillary Clinton writes that she fights for "women's health" when women live 6 years more than men, and 93% of persons who die in work accidents are men. She is a divisive feminist who hates men.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

@Pasquale. She sure mentions health problems in details. She get help from MDs beside women. You can suggest men's problem care to her. All you have to do is to fond men who are pregnant and trying to get abortion or men who have menopause problems also men who need to have breast cancer surgery.

As an non-partisan, independent voter, I see that U.S. leftists are ok with being fanatically sexist if you criticize someone like Mrs. Sarah Palin like David Letterman did by making jokes about adults raping Mrs. Palin's underage daughter on national TV.

But if women aligned with the Democratic Party dares to oppose Mrs. Bill Clinton, they are not only sexists but also earns them a "special place in Hell", according to former Secretary of State Madeliene Albright.

In the leftist universe you say what you want about conservative women (Mrs. Palin, Ms. Rice, Ms Coulter, etc.), but Mrs. Clinton is the feminist supreme untouchable. After Mrs. Clinton bragged and laughed on videotape about helping a child molester get off easy by trashing the underage female victim, how can any voter doubt her commitment to helping women?. . . .

Mrs. Sarah Palin...

Don't you mean "Mrs. Todd Palin"?

kcjapan, again I say, as a person WHO DOES NOT SUPPORT TRUMP... He IS right about calling out Hillary's BS Gender card play. And you don't know me, so don't try. If you check the Clintons' record on gender issues, you would find Hillary as an enabler of Bill's abuses. Trump will drag her through the mud of their history.

Just exactly what is the war on women anyway? Abortion only? Certainly it's not job titles or wages, women hold every position a man does. It's an imaginary deflection. It existed several decades ago but times have changed.

The abortion issue is more a spiritual one mostly. Used a a means of birth control, I'm against it. Am I at war with women?

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

@MarkG. A majority of anti abortion activists are women. Try to join their organization. You will be treated as a rare specimen.

The latest Trump Clinton national polls are virtually tied so whether she is winning women and he cancels that out with support from men, everyone has one vote and a win is a win however the demographics fall out in the end.

"Trump's overwhelmingly negative personal ratings. Nationwide, around 65 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Trump. Where it really gets dismal for Trump is among women, 70 percent of whom view him negatively"

source: For Trump: Why Goldwater history will repeat itself

While the Trump campaign, managed by a perpetrator of assault on a female reporter, spins their twisted messages of hate, prejudice and ignorance, the American People have lost interest in television's biggest bigot and are permanently changing the channel away from Trump. Leading the clicker game change unsurprisingly are women.

Trump has sold a toxic soup of violence and threats which stun women voters but the article cited shows the ultimate toxicity of a racist run for the highest office in the States.

Clearly the battle cry of "Taking OUR Country Back" means taking America back to the racism of the past.

Trump, the self described business genius, currently under indictment for fraud to the tune of forty million in New York, designed his campaign to define the "who" "OUR" means.

Taking their country back means bigots and racists are looking to Trump to deliver a America where the bigot and racist can walk proudly and beat frequently anyone they wish and Trump has told them he will pay the bill for lawyers to defend them.

It is almost impossible to tell why women are rejecting this business genius' salesmanship.

What's made those American women so uppity? Can't the real men in America keep their women where they belong?

As the article notes, 65% of all Americans see Trump as a jackass and Trump accomodates them with increasingly violent and threatening language. Seeing Trump arrested at Cleveland will be the icing on the hate cake he baked.

Trump is far more honest and better than Hillary,but his problem is that he speaks his mind loudly,straight,and clearly unlike any other front runner in the history of American presidency elections.What he says makes sense,but mainly those who are against him,are those whom he wanna stand up to them,no wonder.Republican dummies are fighting him on behalf of Hillary,what a black comedy!Those Republican dummies should realize that if there was no Trump there,no one would even notice,there is a party called Republic party,even museums wouldnt accept it as a part of American history!!

Calf GOP convention ... Cruz is pushing him to be nominated and so he is creating lies that Trump support rapists. Trump is trying to GOP change delegation and other antiquated rules. Trump is criticizing China and Korea for losing jobs in USA Like Indiana officials. Cars, trains, etc. Did not mention Japan this time. However he mentioned Mexico. Seems he does not now Mexican automakers such as Toyota and Mazda are Japanese car makers. Indiana official who blamed Korea repeatedly mentioned N Korea products in USA ruined US industry and American lost jobs. Officials did not know Hyundai is not made in NK. Not in Indiana, but somewhere in USA, they make their products in USA By employing Americans.

Trump is honest about his racism and religious prejudice.

"Further, in a recent AP-GfK poll, women (66 percent) were slightly more likely than men (60 percent) to say they definitely would not vote for Trump in a general election." - article

The Republicans have an unelectable jackass demanding violence if he doesn't get his way. Trump couldn't get elected village idiot at this point and everyone knows how hard he's tried to get that vote. What a Loser.

David Duke, Holocaust Denier and Grand Wizard of the KKK endorsed Trump.

Trump refused three times on live television to condemn the racism and religious hatred of David Duke.

Vote Trump, vote for someone who could bear to condemn a HOLOCAUST denier.

A good choice for American racists, someone who could stand up to David Duke.

Trump's failure to immediately and unreservedly condemn the racial and religious hatred of David Duke, Holcaust Denier's endorsement has already happened.

Trump can't rewind or erase the tapes of his racism.

Trump's failure is a purly pandering promotion of hate.

Trump did that, it's fact.

The American People will not ignore this as much as Thumpers wish and demand they do.

A Dictatorship of racists? Not in the States, not now, Never Again.
