You missed the point. It’s the inflated story, the spinning, the padding of his resume. So what else has he inflated, spun, or padded? It’s about honesty – exaggerating one’s church attendance. Guess if you can overlook that, you will be able to overlook his real record when it finally comes out.
Ha! Yeah I'm sure you've never "inflated" a claim before either right? Look with everything going on in the world now you honestly think fudging about church attendance is an issue? You go ahead and keep waiting for your great white buffalo of a candidate that has never lied in his entire life, me I'm gonna be realistic and vote for the guy making sense.
Boom-Stick86 - If you "fudge" about church attendance, it makes one wonder: What else are you "fudging" about? It's really that basic.

“weed” is your main issue. This country is on the verge of exploding and all you want to do is light up. See the correlation?

Fully expect The Donald to take credit for bringing this event together.

The brilliant strategy comes from Cruz for bringing in Trump and with Trump comes the media machine and a lot of outraged Americans. Finally – we the people – will be heard. I bet if Trump announced a march on D.C., there’d be a couple of millions po’d folks making the trip. Thanks to Cruz, the horrible Iranian deal is still being discussed and protested. Hurrah for Cruz and Trump.

Glenn, Stu – Michelle Malkin has a great, must read article from 2011.
Donald Trump’s eminent-domain empire

How ironic. Bill O’Reilly who never lets a ‘guest’ complete a sentence is concerned about being civil. I’m also perplexed as to the condemnation of Ramos’ butting in on the presser. Every week Ed Henry and other FOX reporters/hosts are persistent and sometimes quite rude in asking tough questions to candidates, yet there is a new standard/rule for approaching The Donald. Going forward, let’s see if the reporters implement the ‘new standard’ to be polite to the other candidates.
Ironic? Not at all. The show is O'Reilly's. The stage was Trump's.
What do you think would happen to me if I kicked open the door at Univision and demanded to be put on the air?
How come you activists have no common sense?

Who was the first and only person warning about the caliphate? Beck. He was widely condemned by a lot of supposedly smart people. Lesson learned?

Glenn – Trump isn’t going to do an interview with you until he blows it out of proportion and gets a lot of publicity.

Trump is better than the Messiah! When he gets into office everything – and I mean everything – will be fixed. Today he announced that he will end all religious discrimination. Really! 2,000 years of religious persecution and Trump is going to fix it. How apropos that the new messiah should be named Trump – because he’s always tooting his own horn. Would like to hear from his fellow parishioners from the First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica Queens. Imagine the spectacle if Trump becomes POTUS – forget the Greek columns – think bigger – like his descension from out of a cloud with Trumpets blaring.
Trump is a real person. The Messiah was a bronze age Myth. Jews are STILL waiting and the Christians think Jesus fits the bill according to their understanding of religious men during bible times.
With Trump being real ... that alone, Trump will do more for the country.
Trump thinks hghly of himself because he has accomplished much and has the bank account to prove it. Obama wants to accomplish great things but hasn't and his bank account grows only because he provides cronies and money bundlers favor for helping him get in office
Obama will end up on K-Street somewhere with a $4 Million dollar salary OR create his own foundation and speak or years making millions from all those stupid enough to listen to him.

Isn’t that the point – Trump is so thin skinned that he only wants to be interviewed by people who will praise him. It’s part of a narcissistic personality disorder. He did it with Meghan Kelly, he did it with Krauthammer, he did it with everyone and anyone who dared to ask a question/make a statement that fractured his fragile ego.
You people are so stupid. Our house is on fire and you won't let the only man with a fire-hose put it out because you don't approve of his demeanor.
If you don't think it takes a narcissist to run for President of the United States, you're naive. They're all narcissists.

Calling Dr. Krauthammer – please come forward with an analysis. I believe the diagnosis is Narcissistic Personality Disorder. For any candidates – you absolutely need professional help in figuring out how to deal with this bombastic personality. Start by going to the “Out of the FOG Support Forum” and then call the Dr.
The Productive Narcissist: The Promise and Peril of Visionary Leadership by Michael Maccoby: He says narcissists can be charismatic forces for change—because of their drive, vision, risk-taking, and even ruthlessness, many corporations turn to narcissists for salvation. But such people can become dangerous because their success fuels their already ample grandiosity and feeds the sense they got there by disdaining the normal rules.” (think Rob Blagoiavich, Jesse Ventura)

Not that George Soros’ fingerprints aren’t on every ‘fundamental change’ in this country. Look at the oil spill and how the cleanup was manipulated/stalled so that the rigs went Brazil (Petrobras), look at crony contracts that benefitted Soros & GE, look at Media Matters, Center for American Progress, et al and you will find Soros. Just this week, after six years of Obama decimating the coal industry, George Soros gobbled up over 1,500,000 shares of stock in two coal mines. Now why would he do that?

Simple Solution: All band members leave the stadium at half time, go stand on the public sidewalk, and play to their hearts’ content. Folks in the stands can continue to sing along. Just need to be conniving and figure out the loopholes to get their way. No matter, they shouldn’t have to change their traditional participation in sporting events.

“I am going to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created..you are going to be so proud.” In other words: I AM GOD’S GIFT TO YOU.
SEVEN DEADLY SINS – WRATH, GREED, SLOTH, PRIDE, LUST, ENVY GLUTTONY – known as the capital vices or cardinal sins.
Pride: Pride is self love and, therefore, is the greatest of sins . Pride is directly opposed to submission to God. It is the sin most hated by God. The pride of ambition leads us to seek positions or offices of honor and dignity by which we prefer ourselves to others, however worthy they may be. Excessive confidence, immoderate desires, vainglory, the desire for praise, ostentation and the immoderate use of necessities of life in order to be more highly thought of, stem from this pride. Inflated sense of one’s personal status or accomplishments (hubris). Aristotle: “ As for the pleasure in hubris, its cause is this: men think that by ill-treating others they make their own superiority the greater.”

Trump last night: “I am going to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created..you are going to be so proud.” In other words: I AM GOD’S GIFT TO YOU.
The Trumpeteers are irrationally enamored with this megalomaniac personality. Where have we seen that before? Oh yah – the Obama Girl videos, the Obamaphone lady, the adoring crowd who get the ‘free stuff’.
From the start, he was ambiguous, he rambled and rarely put together a cogent one thought sentence, often interrupting his own thought process with two or three other snippets of his ‘stump’ policy. Trumps has ADHD of the mouth. Wish someone would post the transcript online so I could quote where he said he was going to talk about immigration and in the same sentence interrupted himself to take shots at Bush’s wealth and Mexicans. Very, very discombobulated.

“self made billionaire”…obviously you have not read his bio. Trump’s father was the rich guy and Jr. inherited the business. But he did get six (6) Vietnam deferments, including two well after he was through with college, and those were the years he began to really accumulate wealth and became a millionaire. And “honest” – read his bio and see if you can find where he received his purported “MBA”, see if you can find where he is a true conservative (he has changed parties six times – last time in 2011 to “Independent” with no report found that he ever changed back to a Republican.

Wrath: The external expression of anger in facial expressions, body language, physiological responses, and at times in public acts of aggression (talking loud, making boastful statements, bragging about power).
Greed: An inordinate desire to possess wealth, goods, or objects of abstract value far beyond the what is needed for basic survival and comfort. A markedly high desire for and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.
Lust: Lust is an emotion or feeling of intense desire in the body. The lust can take any form such as the lust for knowledge, the lust for sex or the lust for power.
Envy: Individuals with narcissistic personality disorder are often envious of others or believe others are envious of them. A narcissist may secure a sense of superiority in the face of another person’s ability by using contempt to minimize the other person.
Gluttony: Means over-indulgence and over-consumption of food, drink, or wealth items to the point of extravagance or waste.
Seeing as Trump is being brutally honest and forthright with the Pope, the Pope should do likewise with Trump and school him on the SEVEN DEADLY SINS – WRATH, GREED, SLOTH, PRIDE, LUST, ENVY GLUTTONY – known as the capital vices or cardinal sins. Trump needs to be educated on his own human character flaws that according to Christian teachings lead to humanity’s fall.
PRIDE: Inflated sense of one’s personal status or accomplishments (hubris). Aristotle: “ As for the pleasure in hubris, its cause is this: men think that by ill-treating others they make their own superiority the greater.” Pride is self love and, therefore, is the greatest of sins .

I’m sure Mr. Trump is very familiar with the seven deadly sins; we all are. Let's down our stones.
What do you expect from a narcissist?
August 20, 2015 at 4:41pm
Why is it that Trump and now Coulter can’t put forth their positions without calling people ‘stupid’ ‘fat slobs’ ‘hate’ ‘morons’ etc.? I’d gladly hear and consider their message but when they immediately put other people down while elevating themselves (often without a substantive reason), I am turned off.
