    Oh the irony! A party who has spent years waging the culture wars, passing discriminatory laws that will "protect" women, and injecting religion into politics in a scary and alarming way has nominated a misogynist who has been caught on tape bragging about grabbing women "by the pussy" and fondling them without permission. Now more and more women are coming out of the shadows and telling their story of abuse at the hands of "The Donald" and the worst is certainly yet to come.

    This is what the dissolution of a major political party looks like. Political parties have risen and fallen many times throughout our short history, but this is the first time it's happened in the social media age. Now, for the first time, we get to watch a civil war between different factions in the Republican Party in real time.

    I wish I had the ability to feel sorry for them, but after eight years of them attacking our President and refusing to cooperate with him one iota I can't help but relish in their destruction.

    The evening news discussed this tonight. Prepare a guess....... Yes exactly. Those women are crazy. The Clinton's are responsible. The rigged media is spreading these lies.

    Never once did a low IQ follower of his imagine that something bad could happen to him and/or that it could be his own fault.

    If he gets shot...... Hillary would need her hands tested for gun powder residue.

    Also on the news, Trump might be now just concentrating on Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida. Pennsylvania has no paper trail to back up votes. Controversial remarks are sure to follow. They should see if replacement machines can be found immediately.

    This is beyond the wildest dreams of batshit gonzo FUBAR craziness I could have ever imagined at the presidential level.

    Gets worse day by day.

    We've had our fair share of FUBAR elections in our short history, but this is the first one that is playing out in the social media age.

    I wonder how the 1800 or 1860 elections would have played out today. We often forget that politics has always been a very dirty business. Now we just have the endless news cycle to remind us of it.

    Last night DT had a fit and went on Twitter to complain about Saturday Night Live. I read about it on Huff. Post. Video was very funny. Suggest all view it.

    Remember, presidential candidates didn't usually leave their house a whole lot to campaign until near the turn of the 20th century. The idea was they shouldn't be seen as 'wanting to be president' by the public.

    Nevertheless, Trump is waaay outside of modern presidential norms, and he probably wouldn't be a presidential candidate if we weren't in the social media age.

    In a perfect world, social media could spread information. In our current world, it's used to spread hate. Lot's of hate and mindless rhetoric.

    NWF is Typically conservative Republican. I have yet to find anybody offended by or would change their vote by all the scandalous taking advantage of women by Trump. Considering he has gotten away with it by passively offering careers and employment. Some of these same people have verbally attacked men for trading drugs for sex with women.

    That is very true.

    It's really hard to find concrete evidence of exactly when the first campaign was held where the candidates openly lobbied for it. My best guess is when Teddy Roosevelt formed the Bull Moose Party after being denied the Republican nomination in 1912.

    I'm not so sure of this. We've had plenty of batshit crazy political demagogues and Presidential contestants in our short democracy. Trump may just be the first one to utilize the power of social media to hijack a major political party.

    I was wondering if there's a list of persons insulted by Trump. Off the cuff: Mexicans, Women, Muslims, Jewish, Blacks, Lgbt, other illegal aliens, perhaps that's it. If I forgot any groups, please add them.

    Entire country - China.

    Edit/add

    Physically handicapped persons. Deaf persons. Recently it was reported that DT referred to actress Marly Matlin (who is deaf) as "retarded" that my friends is: people skills.

    He has only insulted about 15 pct of white males.

    We've been keeping track of all the crazy things Trump has done throughout the campaign. It's hard to keep up with all of them, but we won't stop until we have them all.
