Master Manipulator

Don't look now, but you're being hoodwinked once again. The Trump campaign announced that he would NOT attend the Thursday evening debate because he doesn't want Megyn Kelly to moderate because she's unfair to him. REALLY? What's he REALLY afraid of?

Fox News refused to replace Kelly. (Good for them!)

Today we see Donald Trump polling on the Internet asking his followers if he should attend the debate. He's jerking us all around while getting free airtime and free publicity.

Let's face it, he is MANIPULATING the media and YOU once again. Is this the type of temperament we want to see displayed from the White House? Trump may be masterful in getting his own way, but what happens when he doesn't? Looks like he throws a HISSY FIT.

Can we trust Trump after this unscrupulous behavior?? Does he belong in charge of the nuclear codes?

When he shows up tomorrow, we will have proof that it was all a SHAM.

Trump's Definition of "Conservative"

When asked what is a Conservative on CBS’s Face the Nation, Donald Trump responded as follows:

Question: “What is your definition of conservative?”

TRUMP: “Well, I think it’s a person that doesn’t want to take risks. I think that’s a good thing. A person that wants to in terms of government I’m talking about. Person that wants to conserve, a person that wants to in financial sense balance budgets. A person that feels strongly about the military and I feel very strong low about the military. And you have some of these Amy they don’t even want to focus on the military. Our military is falling apart I feel very — I have always felt very strongly about the military. By the way, if you look at vision, the word vision, I was the one that said, take the oil, I’ve been saying that for years, take the oil, let’s take the oil. Nobody would listen then all of a sudden after Paris they started saying maybe that’s right we’ll take the oil. They still don’t take the proper way. I was — which is a little bit different than Normal conservative. But I was very much opposed to the war in Iraq. Lot of these guys were all for the war in Iraq look what’s that has got it. Spent $2 trillion, now handing Iraq over, just handing over to Iran. Iran is going to take over Iraq I said that was going to happen. I said that years ago. In 2003 that Iran will take over Iraq was largest oil reserves in the world that’s not a conservative position. When I was saying, don’t go into Iraq I’m a very militaristic person, I’m very much into the military, will build our military better and stronger, that’s the — opposed to what we have now. I was opposed to the war in Iraq. Most conservatives, let’s go gung-ho. Everyone of them wanted the war in Iraq. Look where it got us.
