Donald Trump has an ace in the hole for dealing with attacks from his Republican rivals

donald trump jeb bushAfter Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) released a video criticizing real-estate magnate Donald Trump for h..., Trump had a familiar response at the ready.

"Recently, Rand Paul called me and asked me to play golf," Trump said in a statement. "I easily beat him on the golf course and will even more easily beat him now, in the world in the politics."

Then he added: "Senator Paul does not mention that after trouncing him in golf I made a significant donation to the eye center with which he is affiliated."

Republican candidates are learning the hard way that Donald Trump has an ace in the hole when they come after him.

For one thing, they have probably dealt with him in the past — and there's a good chance they have asked him for money.

Since announcing his presidential campaign earlier this summer, Trump has traded barbs with many of his GOP rivals over immigration, foreign policy, and his conservative credentials.

But rather than engaging with them in detailed policy debates, the real-estate magnate has instead revealed embarrassing anecdotes about his personal relationships with the candidates, providing a somewhat unprecedented level of transparency into the interactions between politicians and the superrich.

You think Judge Judy wouldn't be fair to men?

Well, I see the Troll is back! Triptolemus, your name can't pass my spell test, let alone my smell test!

Trump received millions for promoting this scam. Thousands of poor naïve people were scammed out of their savings. Trump's philosophy: If god did not want them sheared, he would not have made them sheep. We don't want this clown as president.

Idiot

There are substantive issues being posted here

They are being hidden by your repetitive idiocy.

Your resources are so lame and vague.

UP YOURS YOU IGNORANT FOOL!

There are issues with trump's character - well documented. You and Marilyn are trying to cover them up with bombast.

Oh riiiight.  Do you HEAR yourself?   Like I would have the capability to even do that???  OMG

Trip, Spoken like a true Liberal Socialist.

What man doesn't have character flaws... Obama certainly has many.  What we need is a man whose character is capable of embracing the issues with the force of will needed to bring about a favorable end to our political problems.

Trump's strong willed and opinionated posturing leaves no question as to his objectives... no political intrigue is necessary to understand where he stands on an issue.  That is what this nation needs right now,  a man with the fortitude to live his convictions; a man whose character has proven well, in negotiating with adverse parties.

We need a street fighter ... a man willing to buck the evil and entrenched political powers, who have proven intractable, using standard political negotiations and venues.  No, Trump's personality and Character may be exactly what America needs today... if we are to deal effectively with the criminal enterprise running our government.   Trumps book 'The Art of the Deal' spells out the reasons he may well be the man of the hour.

"What man doesn't have character flaws"???  You're not expecting an argument from any women here are ya'?   ;o)))))   Well frankly, Obama doesn't come under the heading of a "man" on my list, Michelle would come closer.  One of the big things I like about Trump.....he does away with all the politically correct CRAP.  I'm sick of all the "I'm offended", "racism", oh....that list could go on FOREVER.  It's out of control, and other countries are laughing their asses off at us. 

I agree, Marilyn. We have a 100% chance nothing will change with these other "career guys"....because nothing has changed. They can't even bring themselves to stand against Obama....they don't even understand how much power they have if they stood in unison. One man...Trump....has had the courage to call it like it really is.....maybe he can't do the things he has said....but.........we have a 50/50 chance he can. 100% down the tubes vs. 50/50% possibility.....who the hell wouldn't take those odds?

ALERT ALERT

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

MAJOR SHAKEUP AT MSNBC - Ratings crater after Mueller Report Debacle! 

MSNBC Shakeup: Jonathan Wald and Dan Arnall Take Dayside

MSNBC quietly implemented a sweeping shakeup in programming this week, Mediaite has learned, appointing SVP of programming and development Jonathan Wald and MSNBC executive editor Dan Arnall to lead...

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
