    Someone running for president that has their own TV show? No thanks.

    I'm sure the voters for this one would be more enthusiastic for a black, female socialist, than an old, white capitalist.

    She didn't get rich being a socialist. That, and Trump seriously considered her as a running mate.

    That is all we need, her with moochele as a running mate. They dig up George Washington Carver to vote.

    There are a lot of rich business people that are socialists when it comes to what they want for other people. That is the hypocrisy of the entrepreneurial left. Have you ever listened to that eh-hole Zuckerberg, owner of Facef**k? The speech I watched was a video of him speaking to a bunch of Harvard graduates that would shock the crap out of you.

    I'm not too worried. Some key republican law makers seem to be warming up to Trump. A couple more Congressional victories for Trump and he'll crush any Dummycrap opposition. After the 2016 elections, the polls have lost all credibility with me.

    If Oprah is smart, and she is very, very smart, she'll wait for the results of the 2018 mid-term election. From now until November 6, we will be living perhaps the 10 most important months in American history - months that will determine for us, and the world, the final destination of civilization - whether mankind evolves back to capitalism, liberty, faith and individualism, or devolves into fascist, globalist "social-democratic" atheistic totalitarianism.

    The Donald sees the big picture, but GOP legislators see nothing but their fears and their uncertainty. They will have to be dragged kicking and screaming into acting in even their own self-interest, never mind the best interest of their country.

    So, here's the bottom line - if the Congress can pass the principle parts of the Trump agenda soon enough for positive results to be seen and felt by the broad masses of the workers and peasants, the 2018 election will flip from all precedent and the GOP majority will grow and strengthen, and the time between then and 2020 will a be renaissance of American Exceptionalism. If Congress dilly-dallies and either enacts important bills too late, or not at all, welcome to 1984.

    Lucky for me, I'm old. If the good guys win, I get to live out the autumn and winter of my life a happy camper, if they lose, I get to die in the nick of time, and miss the apocalypse of civilization. I call it a "win" either way.

    You mean that woman that said, "All white people must die." ? How about, NO!

    Yeah, that's another way of putting it.

    Well, since she funneled women to Harvey Weinstein for two decades in exchange for getting her Hollywood ideas put on film and advancing her own career in the media world, I'd say she is fit for the job of a politician. But, of course, this won't come out. And if it does, the left will dismiss it as "old news, move on." Even though they don't give Trump that courtesy for insignificant, trivial matters.

    I would classify Trumps remarks as tongue-in-cheek, or just trying to be nice to someone he was friends with. He has said a lot of lame things prior to announcing his candidacy. There is no excuse for Oprah's remarks about "old white people," and you could tell by her expression and tone of voice that that there was real anger there. If he said that about blacks, that they "just have to die," there would be no coming back from that.

    That was after he announced his candidacy.

    There was an interview with Hannity in the same video panel that you posted, where he denied being serious about that possibility. Regardless, I think his comments were inconsequential. Her comments were much more important, IMO. Since you deleted the second part of my original comments in your quote I guess you read them, so how is there any comparison? All the nevertrumpers sound the same...it's only what HE says, not the other person. No bias there....LOL

    I am not disputing what she said. I am pointing out that she is your buddy's buddy-- or at least she was until it became inconvenient for him. Just like Anthony Wiener, the Clintons, Chuck Schumer, etc. By supporting him, you are sort of endorsing them in a way.
