– Presidential candidate Donald Trump made one of his first stops on the campaign trail at the Maryland Republican Party’s annual Red, White & Blue fundraising dinner. If you want to stop Jeb in New Hampshire and beyond, the quiet midwestern guy is obviously a safer bet than the loudmouth billionaire from NYC.
For Trump to have a real shot at winning, Paleologos said, “the more challenging part of this is that he has to widen his appeal”. “He is certainly not a criminal, rapist, or drug trafficker, as your speech suggested”, she wrote. Interpretation: Despite being a darling of evangelicals, people are still confusing him with the Dustin Hoffman and Jason Schwartzman characters in “I Heart Huckabees”, an independent movie that no one saw and even critics such as Roger Ebert barely mustered two stars for. No, it was to unveil a remodeled golf course, which he named after himself, that charges members a almost $100,000 initiation fee.
That field seems to be big enough: Seven in 10 say they are satisfied with their choices, up from 55% three months ago. “Donald Trump should not promote racism against Mexicans or Latinos in America”. Yet he feels it necessary to attack them.
As he considers a presidential bid, Christie has placed an emphasis on New Hampshire, holding 10 town hall-style events in the key early voting state. So why does Trump speak so hatefully about them? It’s a surprising showing for Trump, the creator and host of the “Apprentice” reality series. And, I’m happy I don’t have to make that one. I have no doubt that his business interests would grind to a halt and his empire would be paralyzed.
More than twice as many say Trump is not honest and trustworthy as think he is (64 percent vs. 30 percent). “I’ve called him the car-accident candidate before – you don’t want to slow down and look but you always do – and this Suffolk poll affirms that status”. No wall built by Trump can stop that.
“He was talking about illegal immigration, and a porous border between the USA and Mexico; he wasn’t talking about the Mexican people”, she said when asked about the topic. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them. They were followed by a dozen other contenders, nearly all of them with more electoral and governmental experience than Trump, scoring single digits.
Trump was introduced at the dinner by David Cordish, president of the Cordish Companies. The silence was as painful as his words.
But Adriana’s post was not an mad rant or sarcastic “takedown” of Trump – tempting though those options must have been.
