And the GOP as a party wants nothing to do with these guys, i.e., they are policing their own. The Illinois guy runs in a district that hasn't had a Republican rep since the 70s; no sane republican is going to waste their time and money running in a district like that. C'mon, man!
    There's more than three, and they're not running as democrats are they? Obviously they identify more with the GOP.

    There are socialists running as democrats. That’s not as bad as white supremacists but certainly farther away from good than they should be.

    And Communists identify with the Democratic Party, but does the Democratic Party police its own? No, it embraces the extreme wealth redistribution of these kooks.

    I actually do think it is super easy to believe that a someone who supports a racist for president might actually be a racist. Not saying all Trump supporters are racist, but all Trump supports voted for a racist.

    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I am no Trump supporter and won't defend his obnoxious comments, but do you believe he is a racist, or just a narcissist who hates people? I tend to believe he is an equal opportunity people hater. The only people he loves are those that stroke his ego.

    A vote for Trump was a middle finger raised vote against the status quo, IMHO, not a vote for racism.

    He's both. He's proven his racism in the past e.g. the Central Park Five fiasco, discrimination suits, repeating white nationalist ideas i.e. the Wall, etc.

    I am surprised this one doesn't get more run. An absolutely disgraceful chain of events - cheered on and supported by Trump the entire way.

    You might be correct as I have only briefly read about the Central Park Five fiasco, but most people haven't followed his racism, only his anger. I suspect most voting are unaware of his racist conduct.

    I think this is probably accurate. He hates everyone who doesn't stroke him. Supporting racists and showing racist stripes after being in office is just an added bonus for the GOP haters, liberal elites, and America haters. For everyone else who hated Trump, it was no bonus, just another reason to be sad he is our president.

    On another note. Anyone willing to admit that he actually did a good thing by freeing the Hammonds? If you can't bring yourself to say Trump did the right thing in this situation, you might want to reexamine your objectivity. Even bad people can do good things on occasion.

    Michael Avenatti in Iowa: 'I’m exploring a run for the presidency of the United States'

    Michael Avenatti has arrived in Iowa.


    After three canceled flights and a 700-mile road trip, the lawyer known for representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her case against Republican President Donald Trump, is ready to put his stake in the ground in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.

    "I’m exploring a run for the presidency of the United States, and I wanted to come to Iowa and listen to people and learn about some issues that are facing the citizens of Iowa and do my homework," Avenatti told the Des Moines Register in an interview Thursday.

    Avenatti, who rose to prominence as an outspoken critic of the president, toured the Iowa State Fair Thursday posing for selfies with fans. He is scheduled to speak at the Democratic Wing Ding fundraiser Friday night in Clear Lake.
    [...]

    Avenatti would be a prefect presidential candidate for the dems... and Stormy can be his running mate!

    Honestly I can not tell who is the biggest whore... Avenatti or Daniels.

    Already some good nicknames for potential candidates.

    - Pocahontas
    - Spartacus
    - Crazy Joe

    Here’s to hoping Crooked Hillary and Jeff Flakey run as well.

    Yeah there are degrees of racism but its sort of a binary distinction. Even if you are a little racist you are still a racist. Trump is a racist. Maybe not a hood-wearing, cross-burning, KKK member, but is very uncomfortable with brown skin immigration legal or otherwise.

    Apple didn't fall far from the tree in this instance. Word is that Fred Trump was a Klansman. His racism was notorious enough to make it's way into a Woodie Guthrie song
