    I think Trump has 2020 in the bag. 100,000 people outside the stadium that fills 20,000 for his rally in Orlando yesterday. Some waited up to 48 hours, pitching tents to get in.

    Democrats have nothing on this. Even Biden at a rally a few weeks back could not fill his 2,000 seat auditorium so he had to hold his rally in the entrance way with some estimated 600 people. This just amusing.

    (to add, Trump managed to raise something like $24m in 48 hours, that amount would take a democrat 3 months to raise)

    Interesting article in the NYT - a feast for Trump fans and food for thought for anybody else:

    Agreed.

    The polls will say he can't win, the MSM will say he can't win, the left will believe he can't win. But he will win and it will likely be a landslide because rather than focusing on putting forward candidate that can actually beat Trump they have focused on Trump.

    And then all the talking heads will go "what happened?" "how did this happen" again and again, replay 2016 head scratching and disbelief. Will be very interesting to see liberal heads exploding yet again and a whole lot of denial.

    Default Trump going to war?

    Pretty scary stuff happening in the Near East ... and, as usual in any war - the truth is the first victim, though one could argue it died already a long time ago.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/19/o...-conflict.html

    Trump broke the contract with the Iran. He is the deal breaker and bully in chief, nobody else.

    He uses his power to harass Iran to the maximum extent ... but expects that they are sticking to an agreement he himself broke.

    And now it appears low level violence is escalating. First some tankers attacked - and hey, it might have been Iran, but it might have been as well somebody trying to frame them. Israel? Saudi Arabia? US? Who knows, remember - Trump is a crook and a liar.

    An US drone downed. Was it over Iranian territory or over international waters? Who knows? Remember - while we have no reason to trust the words of the Iranian strongmen, Trump is as well an untrustworthy liar, crook and bully and he collected a nice crowd of crooks and liars around himself.

    Quite frightening to think about what the endgame might be ... but so far it appears that neither the Mullahs nor the bully in chief have a face saving exit strategy.

    Going for another Afghanistan, are we Donald? I just hope that the other Western countries don't follow this idiot into war ...

    ..
    He was elected on that.. one of his many election promises he has kept. You can not blame him for breaking that horrible deal with Iran.

    You mean people elected him because he promised to be a crook? You might well be right - and yes, once a crook and deal breaker, always a crook and deal breaker.

    But yes, if people will die in this conflict, their blood will be not just on Trump's hands but on the hands of all of his supporters.

    But to offset that, he's going to cure cancer he claims in a preview of his newly written comedy, provided he gets another term.

    Well, yes - he clearly must have noticed and is now exploiting the average intelligence of his supporters.

    Ah well, life is not fair.

    Is that right, what about those that support Biden? You do know he said exactly the same thing 2 days before and here there are on CNN saying he can do it.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    HAHA Trump can make fools of people thousands of miles away without even trying. The guy is not only the best president, he's also a comic genius.

    This picture sums a couple of posters in this thread.

    You've stated in a previous post that you had blocked me because I had spreed "fake news." That was a bold face lie wasn't it BP?
    You seem to be a self imposed expert on lairs, I guess it takes one to know one aye BlackPeter.
