He's been stumped, trumped and on Nov 8 will finally be dumped.

21 ( +29 / -8 )

Comical the guy is a total tool...

13 ( +20 / -7 )

And great to see Trump again staying really focused..........on losing the election!

15 ( +21 / -6 )

What a tough man.

11 ( +16 / -5 )

He never had any ideas. He's just an old man yelling at squirrels at this point. And the squirrels think they've found a fresh supply of nuts.

13 ( +21 / -8 )

“All of these liars will be sued once the election is over,” Trump said. He added later: “I look so forward to doing that.”

only if She (Hillary) wins the battle, else these women will be forgiven, i guess.

Trump's Gettysburg Address wasn't what you could call Lincolnesque.

8 ( +13 / -5 )

he himself is a liar. bluffing again. doesn't he get sick of playing those games?

10 ( +16 / -6 )

If you can't beat 'em, sue 'em so that they have to quit because they can't afford to defend themselves.

10 ( +15 / -5 )

“All of these liars will be sued once the election is over,” Trump said.

This is a man whose highly paid legal teams have filed more than 3,500 lawsuits for him. He has 169 federal cases pending. Under Trump the Department of Justice will have to hire even more highly paid attorneys to sue the government, corporations and individuals so Trump can get personal revenge on them and get more money he can use to pay off his loans to international 'financiers'.

If he gets elected, he'll use all government agencies for his benefit. Why does he want to expand the word's most expensive and frightening military? Does he want to seize lands to build more hotels and golf courses?

“I look so forward to doing that.”

His rich daddy bought him the most expensive education money can buy, but it didn't help him with his language skills. Great leaders are great communicators: Trump is neither.

Why hasn't Trump released his tax info?

In a pledge sure to raise eyebrows on Wall Street, he said he’d block a potential merger between AT&T and media conglomerate Time Warner.

Donald does surely recognize he is not running for dictator, doesn't he? Surely he must realize that he alone cannot block a deal. But, as a wannabe dictator, one can certainly understand why he'd want to stick it to Time Warner, or any media which doesn't portray him in the best of light.

The Orange Chump delivered a fine "Grievanceburg Address" !

“All of these liars will be sued once the election is over,”

Well, he'll certainly have the time for it.

Trump will lose, but so will America.

But I think some of them are lieing. They maybe honest.

Trump vows to lose. Bigly.

My suspicion may be fakes but when Victim's husband smiling hugging victim as if they are getting award onjudge jury, I became suspicious.

-7 ( +4 / -11 )

The GOPs dear leader first 100 days (but not as president): Day 1, sue accuser #1. Day 2, sue accuser #2.... all the way to #100 (which there surely will be given his behavior). Then the next 100 days...

toshikoOCT. 23, 2016 - 09:08AM JST My suspicion may be fakes but when Victim's husband smiling hugging victim as if they are getting award onjudge jury, I became suspicious.

One of the differences between American and Japanese law is in America we judge people guilty if there is evidence they've done wrong - whether or not they appear to show the "correct" feeling about it is irrelevant. For Trump to win any of his cases he has to provide evidence that any of these women knowingly lied about him sexually assaulting them.

Since it's generally very hard to prove an event didn't happen it's going to be very hard for him to prove he didn't sexually assault any of them. Especially when he's on TV bragging about sexually assaulting people.

14 ( +15 / -1 )

But, as a wannabe dictator, one can certainly understand why he'd want to stick it to Time Warner, or any media which doesn't portray him in the best of light.

The Democrats pay people to beat the crap out of Trump supporters or to cause chaos riots, talk about Nazi tactics and you want to call the man a dictator. Jeeez!

Ten women have publicly accused Trump of unwanted advances or sexual assault

As of today, make that eleven. And it won't stop there. Same sickening story everytime. This serial cheater thinks it's ok to stick his tongue down women's throat and grope their breasts without permission. Melanija knows her husband, but I suspect the money keeps her in the marriage.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

For Trump to win any of his cases he has to provide evidence that any of these women knowingly lied about him sexually assaulting them.

He hasn't got a hope in hell of winning a case against them, but any fool can threaten to sue.

And these women - all eleven of them - are likely to have thought very hard, and taken advice, before going public with their accusations. Others are never going to accuse him, because they can see the inevitable shitstorm that would ensue.

There's no easy way to engage with Trump, whether you're a friend, a victim, or an enemy. He poisons everything that comes within his reach.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

The media is so blatantly biased that it may be counterproductive and propel him into the White House...if it turns out he isn't fit, then they would have done a great disservice

-15 ( +1 / -16 )

...if the bra fits, wear it.

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

The media is so blatantly biased that it may be counterproductive and propel him into the White House

It won't. He hasn't got the votes. The only place it will propel him is back to the sewer he crawled out of.

His latest accuser is a porn star. If Trump were a thinking man, he'd be incredibly careful with that, and not go for the obvious scoring points, as it will turn out be rather less consequence-free than he expects. A cleverer person, or someone who listened to his advisers, would consider it poisoned bait. But he's incapable of stopping himself, so let's watch where this goes for him and, er, Melania.

without election fraud hillary has no chance. 92% of americans believe hillary should be prosecuted. trump cannot find venues big enough for his rallies. hillary even paying people to come to her rallies rarely even has 1000 coming. its a sham. lou dobbs 18000000 people fraudulently registered to vote. the best thing about trump is he is bringing the bought and paid for american politicians out of the closet. those owned by foreign entities and special interest, repug or dem, are against him. americans now know who to vote for senate and congress, doesnt matter dem or rupug. of course the people that own the puppet hillary also own the puppet obama and the news. there are still a few, very few people that believe the fake new but most americans are sick of their sham scam. i would say, basing from the difference in rally participation, that it is a 30 to 1 ratio of informed against uninformed americans. when americans come to the realization of whats going on they surely reject hillary. whether they like trump or not they certainly reject hillary.

-14 ( +2 / -16 )

"Trump has denied all allegations while insisting some of the women weren’t attractive enough for him to want to pursue."

He denied saying this in the last debate despite clearly saying it at a rally. This is a common theme with Trump - talk trash to the whooping deplorables and deny this saying trash when in civilised company.

It isn't the best strategy to win an election and particularly so when you want to focus on the dishonesty of your opponent. The man is utterly incompetent.

5 ( +7 / -2 )

forget,

Trump has his core of support, the basket of deplorables as we all know, but that group is too small to provide him victory on November 8th. He will lose and lose badly. Voter fraud is a make-believe issue created by Republicans to suppress minority voters across the USA. Your numbers themselves on voter fraud are fraudulent. But if you live in the Fox news bubble it may all make sense to you, like Obama was born in Kenya no doubt.

On November 9th when you wake up to the election results, another landslide victory for reality as opposed the the empty fantasies of the right wing crowd, perhaps you ask how can I be so wrong? But many like you just prefer to be wrong all the time. You all thought Mitt was going to win last time because you were all so deeply inside the bubble then as well. Same thing happening now, but actually worse as Trump is a sociopath racist loser but none of you can admit that to yourselves.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

He never had any ideas. He's just an old man yelling at squirrels at this point. And the squirrels think they've found a fresh supply of nuts.

What planet are you on? The entire press conference was devoted to ideas, change and how to steer the country in a different direction. The only thing the media focused on was "Trump vowing to sue accusers?" Maybe you should actually listen to the entire press conference before making such a ridiculous comment. Republican or Democrat, you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Trump abruptly ends interview after question about people calling him sexist, racist

(news quote)

Trump is too weak to be president. Clintons are strong and the Trumps are wimps. You want strong people so vote Clinton. Trump is wimpy and he just whines at 3am on Twitter all the time telling to check out people's sex tapes. So Trump is a Walker. He just walks away like the wimp he is. What on earth were you Republicans thinking nominating this crazy whiner.

Incredible that there are so many Trump fools left over. They'd do anything for him and thus another civil war is possible with a well armed ignorant population. Hopefully we don't see any False Flag events or Crosscheck manipulation of voters.

Given all the gerrymandering all the positive news of a Democratic victory may never materialize due to rampant (and legal) redrawing of district maps from the very incumbents who represent the district. It would be against the law anywhere else but since these criminals control the rules it was unlikely to happen. Like campaign finance reform from the senate and house millionaires and billionaires. USA has been democracy deadwood for a very long time. A real democracy is too scary and too messy for everyone in power or craving it.

However postulation of a right wing uprising has been going on for a while and the reality is that most who participate are themselves not poor or unemployed. Many are even financed by larger bosses. They themselves have to convince others of even worse education than they have to rise up for their own benefit. That's why it just stops. It's a Ponzi scheme that implodes upon itself.

I'd suggest Trump supporters move to conservative Kansas which was in the news recently as a failed Republican state compared to other Democratic ones that raised taxes around the same time.

Go, embrace and revel in your failed policies in real time. Learn nothing.

Incredible that there are so many Trump fools left over.

It's not that surprising though. There are a lot of white males who have a lot of fear that they are losing their majority in the country. For them, Trump represents a maintenance of the power of the white male as the majority in the US. First a black president, and then potentially a female president, combined with reading about Muslim terrorism, which scares them, and a preponderance of Mexicans, many of whom are illegal, scares the hell out of them. Hillary says very little that ease their fears, and many things that in fact increase those fears. For example if illegals are given a path to citizenship, that means more of 'them' that are voting.

On top of this, there are many that may not be as described above, but are of the 'anybody but Hillary' crowd. Lots of Republicans are like this - they can't bare the idea of a non-Republican in the whitehouse, even if it means Trump is the one that ends up there. Others have looked at all the smears against her, and determined she is not fit for the whitehouse. And actually, I can understand that one - I think Hillary has her bad points, while my determination is that Trump's bad points are even worse, and more dangerous. These people have just come to the opposite determination - that Trump has his bad points, but Hillary's are even worse and more dangerous. That one is just a difference between which traits people place more import upon.

Porn Star becomes latest Trump accuser

Donald Trump’s latest sex accuser has launched her own online store to sell adult videos, toys, and sexual equipment. She announced the opening of the store one day before going public with her Trump allegations.

-9 ( +0 / -9 )

So Jeff, let's get this straight, what is it that makes you believe beyond a doubt that Trump would never do something that he himself said he does?

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Where is your proof?

-12 ( +0 / -12 )

Where is your proof?

I don't have any, but I also don't believe that he definitely did it. I think it's more likely that he did, but I don't believe that absolutely, and if they were to take him to trial, and I was on the jury, with the evidence that I've seen so far, I couldn't convict him has guilty.

But you believe he definitely didn't do it. So again I ask you, what is it that makes you believe beyond a doubt that Trump would never do something that he himself said he does?

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Proving once again he'd be nothing but a dictator if elected: "I'll respect the results, IF I WIN," "Opposition will be imprisoned", "People who accuse me will be sued", etc.

And some of the fools on here who actually defend Donald Trump's sexual assaults will of course call it "boy stuff" or else say, "Why did they only come out now! This is 11 years AFTER he walked in on those little girls naked! We shouldn't dwell on the past. We should focus on Bill Clinton instead!"

Lunatics, and criminals.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Jeff, you still didn't answer the question, /o again I ask you, what is it that makes you believe beyond a doubt that Trump would never do something that he himself said he does?

3 ( +5 / -2 )

What? He said that he was so popular that he could go up to girls and grab them? Or that he was turned down by a married woman? Does this mean he raped girls? Does this mean he would walk up to any girl and molest them?

No, I dont buy it. I`ve seen much worse in Roppungi.

Once again, NO PROOF

-12 ( +0 / -12 )

He said that he was so popular that he could go up to girls and grab them?

Yes, but now that girls are accusing him of doing just that, you are claiming that it definitely didn't happen. You claim there is no proof, and I agree. But there is evidence to believe it could very well have happened - the evidence being that he has said this is the kind of thing he does. So while it's understandable to not believe beyond a doubt that he did it due to a lack of proof, there needs to also be a reason to believe that contrary to the evidence, he definitely didn't do it.

I'm not asking why you don't believe he did it, I'm asking why you believe beyond a doubt that he didn't do it. What is it that makes you believe it's impossible for him to have done it. Or do you accept the possibility that he might have done it?

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Strangerland: I don't have any, but I also don't believe that he definitely did it.

Putting several shots (and the old sailing photo from 1978) of the accuser Jessica Leeds next to the one low-res photo available on the web of Jessica Leeds of Rancho Palos Verdes, who was involved in a few bitter altercations with Trump's golf course, it looks like they really could be the same person. Even though the RPV photo has a woman with dyed red hair who is a decade younger than the accuser because the photo is a decade old (and a decade or two older than the sailing photo), it still looks like they could be the same person. And accuser Leeds looks thinner, but she's ten years old than she was mid-2000's, and also there is one photo of the accuser Leeds walking down stairs, showing her body shape is similar to the RPV Leeds. A few news sites are carrying the RPV connection, not NYT or WP tho. The altercation from mid-2000s was reported in national newspapers at the time including NY papers (AP, NYDN had it, don't find mention at nyt.com now, maybe they scrubbed it).

Also, all the cases are old, no tapes, no cellphone vids, no CCTV. No cases close enough to present time that they could be exposed as false.

Also no attempts at suing a billionaire for harassment except for the one by the wife of Trump's business associate in a failed venture. And there is one similar instance, the attorney Elizabeth Beck's 'wouldn't let me use my breast pump' accusation last year or so, which Trump's lawyer refuted (as an reaction to the attorney taking out the pump and assembling it and asking to use it at the deposition, when Beck claimed on national broadcast that Trump called her 'disgusting' because she wanted to take a break to pump).

And as I asked before, knowing of the dirty tricks campaign by Bob Creamer et al, do you really think the Hillary campaign WOULDN'T have a Trump Accuser campaign lined up?

NYT tried earlier this year to get a beauty queen to accuse Trump and she refused, the news was reported in May or so. How many said yes when NYT asked?

‘Fed Up’ Miss Calif. USA Carrie Prejean Says NY Times ‘Totally Twisted’ Her Words to Attack Trump

May. 18, 2016

Former Miss California USA Carrie Prejean Boller ripped into The New York Times Tuesday night, telling Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity that the newspaper took a passage from her book out of context to attack Donald Trump. ... Boller told Hannity that reporters from the Times contacted her on several occasions for a story they were working on about Trump’s relationship with women. ... The former pageant star said the reporters “weren’t going to get anything out of me negatively about” the presumptive Republican nominee so they instead published a passage from her book. ... “They weren’t really happy about that. I basically wouldn’t give them the story and now they came out with their own version of it and took, you know, something out of my book and just totally twisted it and made it so negative,” she said. ...

Re the blood sales:

LFRAgain: His error in that horrific mess was that he didn't work aggressively to shut it down.

He didn't shut it down. His successor did. Instead, he shielded the guy he appointed to head the corrections system, from firing. What's the source for your claim?

-7 ( +0 / -7 )

Turbostat - you've shown some reason to believe he may not have done it. I agree he may not have, so you're preaching to the choir. But you, like Jeff, have not shown what makes you believe beyond a doubt that he didn't do it to any of these women.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Do I accept the possibility that he could have groped women who didnt appreciate it? Perhaps, I dont have a crystal ball. I seriously doubt that it was a big deal until he decided to become president. Since there is no proof, I can only go by character reference. Since the media has completely given up on journalism, I must verify personal testimony of people who worked closely with him. According to many many people, and his donations and flat out giving money or loaning his airplane, etc. He seems to have a heart of gold.

Now a question for you. Since there is no proof, can you accept the possibility that the media is intentionally smearing Trump by order of the political and financial elite (and not to yours or mine benefit)?

-9 ( +0 / -9 )

I'm glad to hear you accept it's a possibility. So that means the only difference between us is that I think he probably did do it, and you think he probably didn't. But we both accept the possibility that he did.

So I think that answers your question as to how some people could think he did it. Even you admit it's a possibility.

Strangerland: But you, like Jeff, have not shown what makes you believe beyond a doubt ...

It's not beyond a doubt.

In the accusers' favor, there's the recent Cosby cases. After the initial news on one case, the other reports came pouring in. I don't remember if there was news over the years about Trump's accusers. I think there wasn't.

Also against that point ('Cosby'), there is a collection of women that Cosby negotiated private settlements with to avoid prosecution for the felonies he committed when he drugged and raped them. Some of these popped up after the floodgates opened. There's only one similar case known of Trump, and it's not clear if he is guilty there, either, or which direction the settlement was in. The accuser was the wife of Trumps business associate who was trading lawsuits with him at the time.

Besides Leeds, other stories have other problems with them, that you have to google to find. Media is not forwarding them unless they say they can debunk the debunkers, which they can't always do but claim to anyway.

(The RPV Leeds' article with the photo of the 2007 redheaded RPV Leeds is here: http://www.pvnews.com/archive/trump-crosses-the-property-line/article_240bd5bc-041e-58af-a3d3-30421a4c0295.html.)

('The floodgates were opened' for Cosby by a comedian dissing him in a routine, not by the news media reporting cases, says wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Cosby_sexual_assault_allegations)

Trump saying he'll wait til after the election to sue the accusers may be a point against him. He is not going to handle the suits himself, actually he's as busy as he wants to be so it shouldn't matter to him, timewise. But on the other hand, he and his campaign may have decided it would be detrimental to the campaign. It's not like the media is going to give him fair coverage on the lawsuits.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

And what is your answer? IS it not a possibility that the media is completely smearing Trump by order of the political and or financial elite?

Anything is a possibility. However, I find it extremely unlikely. The things he is criticized for are all things he is on video or audio is saying. He's his own worst enemy.

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Strangerland: The things he is criticized for are all things he is on video or audio is saying.

He didn't say 'assault', or describe it, in the Billy Bush tape. The op-ed pages and smithinjapan said that he said that, he didn't.

Another point re Leeds, the 'like an octopus' and 'hands all over me' (approximate quotes) statements she made are the same as or very close to those of an accuser of a British actor a year or so ago ('beloved' actor of 'Coronation Street', I think).

Another point in general, have the accusers been doing the talk shows? Or just popping up and popping back down where their stories couldn't be contested? Don't watch the shows so I don't know. But it looks like the media are dropping these stories pretty quickly after each burst of attention. If Bob Creamer, Gloria Allred (sic?), et al are/were managing this, you'd expect them to tell the operatives to limit their exposure.

Another point, the NYT did something similar vs. John McCain back in the day. They settled with the woman they linked McCain to, and whose name they dragged in the mud without permission. But they settled AFTER the election was over. Bob Creamer was associated with Obama on that campaign (and was already a felon).

There is heaps more credible evidence on the side of these women's claims than there is for Trump's claim voter fraud. If he has such evidence, he should produce it, or desist. BTW, some claim that tinfoil hats are good defense against conspiracy theories originating in the area around Uranus.

There will be plenty of feminist lawyers out there that will make sure Trump's accusers are not only defended but get fat payouts from the accused molester. It's so obvious he has comported himself as in the Billy Bush video, I hope he has his day in court with the accusers.

"I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. I just kiss, I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything — grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.

If you grab some chick by the crotch without her consent, it's assault.

turbosat:

Trump's exact words in the tape were: "You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star they let you do it. You can do anything."

You're right Trump didn't use word 'assult' BUT what he said does describe assult and he's clearly saying that he "can do anything", and does!

With what he has said he doesn't stand a snowball's chance in hell of winning a lawsuit against all of the women. I'll admit that I think some are probably telling the truth, and some probably aren't as truthful, but with what he said, what his ex-wives have said about his affairs, and what others that worked for him have said, I'll have to go with "where there's smoke, there's fire"!

Weren't they cooing about how clever he was back then? Heh, just like spunking a billion bucks on a casino of all unlikely ventures somehow shows his economic prowess.

The Democrats nominated the most highly qualified person in history for the office of President. The Republicans nominated the ultimate screaming Twitter troll.

His base are insane. Rubber room, bit in teeth and titanium straight-jacket stuff.

Yeah well ladies having their crotch grabbed and forced mouth kisses from a cranky orange old man suffering from chronic affluenza also have the right to court and damages. Mark my words Badsey all these accusers will be getting paid off by your strange hero, those that accept to settle out of court that is.

Not that Trump offering porn stars 10 grand a night really bothers me if they're genuinely up for it - it's the brazen hypocrisy of the "moral compass" Republican party of "family values" having this ordure as their candidate.

badsey, I hope Trump goes through with it (though he won't - hows that NYT lawsuit going?) as , as one of the accuser's lawyer put it, "if Trump sues accusers we then have subpoena power to require not only Trump but all his enablers to appear for depositions. A field day."

Imagine this: the accusations extend throughout all three of Trump's marriages. His first wife, Ivana, said in a divorce deposition that he raped her, describing a violent sexual assault during which he yanked out her hair. Though this accusation was later rescinded by her (divorce settlements in the hundreds of millions have that effect), she could well be called as a character witness.

It would all be quite entertaining. Go for it, Donald.

He's spent his whole life in a billionaire bubble. No need for promotions for incompetence to get rid of him when he is Lord of the Bubble. The presidency is the only thing that can save Trump from a personal bankruptcy on gargantuan debts in my opinion. Trump debts to the Russians and the unstable Chinese banks should be a national security issue. It's a conflict of interest on steroids.

NO. Zero possibility. Oh, it's sure that part of the media has orders to make him look bad... just like their colleagues do the same for Hillary. Nothing new. Except that Trump provided himself the material. The "I grab pussy" video is not a fake, he doesn't say it's a fake, he said that. And that's just an example, and in a way he was "trapped" as he thought the micro was off. His numerous fits of de Tourette have occurred during his official media participations. He did insult all kinds of people in the most vulgar way. The media did not 'make' any of it. The accusations from alleged victims only complete the picture.

In the USA you have the right to take people to court and have a jury (of your peers) listen and ultimately have a ruling.

That's not so fair as you seem to believe.Like anywhere in the world, you can always sue if you can pay for the lawyers. It's much more complicated if you are a paid by tip waitress in a hotel.

Clintons are strong and the Trumps are wimps.

So strong Hillary tells us that cybersecurity is of upmost importance to her, but lies to the FBI and Judicial Watch saying she cannot remember any briefings or training regarding record retention or handling of classified information. Or so strong she has early onset dementia ? Just like Clinton cannot remember any emails of significance or of a highly-classified nature.. She also seems to have forgotten who Sidney Blumenthal was and her communications with him.

I am not responsible, I don't recall, but vote for me for president. Seriously, those are not attributes we should accept in a Girl Scout leader.

I doubt the latest accusation of porn star against Trump. She may be still working as porn star for living. Right now Porn industry in US is struggling because less and less people spending money for unhealthy entertainment and products. She may need to find fast cash and short term fame for establishing new career.

Being a victim of Trump is a stepping stone for Hollywood.

If there are one hundred women come forward against Trump, he will not be able to sue all of them. If the Statue of Liberty will become alive, she will tell the media that Trump has harrassed her sexually before he was even born.

Trump is more innocent than some criminal servicemen of Okinawa. At least he is not pervert against minors.

Trump has rights to be said that election has been rigged by biased media.

Donald Trump laid out his vision for the first 100 days in office of his potential presidency— and that list was pretty awesome.

During a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, Trump rattled off how he'd address corruption, immigration, tax reform and several other issues.

"A constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress," he said, reiterating a plan he revealed early in the week to limit all members of the House of Representatives to no more than three terms, or six years, and senators to a total of two terms, or 12 years in office.

He also spoke about his plans for dealing with undocumented immigrants. "We will begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country," he said. ( sounds good to most Americans )

"We're going to suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur," he added. ( sounds good to most Americans )

Trump also doubled down on his tax reform plan, saying he'd enact the Middle Class Tax Relief and Simplification Act, which he says is designed to help American workers and add at least 25 million jobs "through massive tax reduction."

He also touched on all of the things he's considering repealing if elected, including Common Core education, the Affordable Care Act and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Trump is the first major presidential candidate this election to explicitly map out his first hundred days. Hillary Clinton laid out a less comprehensive hundred-day plan earlier this year.

DRAIN THE SWAMP!

The threat of frivolous lawsuits against his accusers has been unable to stop victims of Trump's sexual assaults to appear, requesting for their Day before the court.. Consequently, Trump and his third wife delay their threats until the election is over. Unfortunately, during the remaining 16 days, there may be more and more accusers who will not only destroy the Trumps. political ambitions, but also their own anti-Catholic patterns of marriage. Trump's probable connections with the enemies may be punished after the election, sooner or later. Trump's abusive languages and his sexual pattern may also bring about unavoidable catastrophe..What's a pity.

As you know him well, Serrano, can you explain how time works in Trump's mind ? 100 days is short to build a long wall (the Chinese done theirs in centuries)... Is it that he expects to be demoted at 100 days ? Then, I looked at it and heard that most projects were "in 100 days... I'll do in 10 years...". So he plans to last more than two terms...as a dictator ?

It is so obvious that these claims are fake. I think it will actually hurt the Clinton campaign to keep bringing these up. 1 or 2 were possible to be true but they have overdone it to the point no one even believes any of it.

Don't understand the logic of some folks. It is OK for Don the Con to tell p**** (and grope, fondle, etc. . . . . . ) jokes because Bill Clinton (who is not running for office, by the way) did what he did twenty five (about) years ago. That is on the Donald's level though. (the logic, I mean). Second or third grade, "Mommy, he hit me first!" type of stuff. Hillary for America, America for Hillary. We are stronger together.

And he'll win. Including the election.

We will know more after a few more days of early in person voting and absentee returns but everything I can piece together so far -- mostly from Florida, North Carolina and Ohio so far shows Democrats down around 10-15% from 2012, Republicans down slightly, 5-7% and Independents or unaffiliated voters (especially in NC) way ahead of four years ago. Very interesting to see whether these trends continue.

Donald Trump was putting noose on his neck and tightening it slowly by himself. Donald Trump is declaring what kind of person he was and every time he opens his mouth. He won’t be suing those women who talk about his sexual assault story as he talk because he knew what really he has done to them but they will sue him. His Trump International Company will shrink and lose customers in future because his reputation was badly damaged even thought many peoples knew his true character. The reputable business men and women will want to stay away from him after his presidency election lost. I don’t think he will ever regret and remorse his action because Trump is megalomaniac with narcissistic personality.

Robby Mook, Hillary's campaign chief, won't say whether Hillary's campaign has been in contact with Trump's accusers (Mook claims 'unaware'), but will say "He should just apologize and move on."

If the accusers were Hillary plants, you'd EXPECT Mook to say to Trump, 'take the hit and move on', to avoid close scrutiny of his (Mook's) operatives.

Just look at how they worded it. Quote from Mook:

“But have they had any contact?” he asked.

“It’s not — not that I’m aware of,” Mook replied hesitantly. “I don’t know about any contact.”

Breitbart's take on that:

Robby Mook was unwilling to deny on the record that the Clinton campaign had been involved in the multiple women accusing Donald Trump of inappropriate behavior.

They've already pre-determined what they think happened, and since his answer doesn't fit that narrative, rather than paraphrasing what he did say, they phrase it as him being 'unwilling to deny on the record'.

Alt-right propaganda. And you people wonder why we give them no credence or respect whatsoever.

First, this is a CNN interview, with Jake Tapper. CNN is not recognized as a right-wing outlet, unless you can provide new information.

Second, before the above quotes, Mook first says (which you omit to mention):

“Have any of these women had any contact with your campaign or the DNC?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked in an interview on State of the Union Sunday morning.

(Mook) “These accusations are not coming from our campaign,” Mook replied, dodging the question.

So, he asserts the accusations are not from the campaign. But then says he doesn't know if the campaign has contacted the accusers. If he won't say they haven't been in contact, how does he know the campaign was not controlling the accusers? Separation of powers? I guess Bob Creamer is safely in hiding.

ChinhDao: Eleven days to go. A good news for the victims of Trump's self-confessed sexual assaults.:An American lawyer has publicly offered his bono services against Trump's frivolous lawsuits within 100 days after the election ...

Last night I laughed at a CNN segment on youtube featuring (Trump's campaign manager Conley?) vs. a lawyer.

The lawyer said something to the effect that these women, including two of them who are her unnamed clients, have no motive to accuse Trump now (specific words, "from credible women who have nothing to gain").

She also said she was the lawyer for the one woman who opened a harassment case against Trump prior to the campaign, in 1997, whose husband also happened involved in a business lawsuit against Trump at the time. Don't remember who won those but don't think they went to court.

If you "have nothing to gain", why do you need to hire an attorney to pursue a harassment case?!?

She didn't say her clients only wanted an apology, so what's left? Money!

If they're only looking for criminal convictions, I don't think that will happen, statute of limitations for one thing, something liberals are all in favor of until it applies to someone they don't like. For another, all these cases are claimed to be pretty old events, also seem likely to be misdemeanors. And again, you don't need a harassment case lawyer to have criminal cases prosecuted.

And the first two of the current Trump accusers (that I recall), Jessica Leeds and Kristin Anderson, have curiously similar Facebook pages (similar as to layout, newness as made just after their accusations went public, photo sets), and Jessica Leeds latest post, from Oct. 13, appears to be a money grab: "I am thinking about making a foundation for abuse victims. We need to stick together!"

I'm sure Hillary can give her advice on how to set this foundation up.

The other woman in the segment (Trump's campaign manager) hit back with 'we have a presumption of innocence in this country.'

So what happened to that presumption of innocence? Is it something only to be trotted out when the left needs it? Why did she need to learn an ATTORNEY on that?
