I think now that Trump has dumped the Republican Party, we now get a better view of his pettiness and vengeful mind.
When the candidates didn't take part in Trump show debate it was, in his mind, a direct insult to his enormous ego and has retaliated against the whole of the Republican Party. Remarks include:
"I don't want to ruin my image by saying this, but I'm a much nicer person than people understand," Trump says. "I like to do the right thing and help people. But when people are disloyal to me I have a couple of instances of well-known people, where I'd help them out, but when I needed a favor, not a big favor in this one case, this guy didn't want to do it. That's 15 years ago. I haven't spoken to him since. He died. He's dead mentally. In other words, for me, they don't exist. I HOLD A GRUDGE. I have the longest memory. I always kick back. I believe in that."
Trump made it clear this morning on Fox Businesss Don Imus show that HE'S GOING TO HOLD A GRUDGE "I don't want to ruin my image by saying this, but I'm a much nicer person than people understand," Trump says. "I like to do the right thing and help people. But when people are disloyal to me I have a couple of instances of well-known people, where I'd help them out, but when I needed a favor, not a big favor in this one case, this guy didn't want to do it. That's 15 years ago. I haven't spoken to him since. He died. He's dead mentally. In other words, for me, they don't exist. I HOLD A GRUDGE. I have the longest memory. I always kick back. I believe in that."
Trump doesn't like Rove's "joke" comment, either. "That was a very nasty thing for him to say," he mutters darkly. "He shouldn't have said that. We'll have it out with Karl Rove. I don't lose too often."
"I like to do the right thing and help people. But when people are disloyal to me I have a couple of instances of well-known people, where I'd help them out, but when I needed a favor, not a big favor in this one case, this guy didn't want to do it. That's 15 years ago. I haven't spoken to him since. He died. He's dead mentally. In other words, for me, they don't exist. I hold a grudge. I have the longest memory. I always kick back. I believe in that."
It's kind of weird hearing Trump spit out his words with such rigid vehemence just like he does on his reality show, knowing how huge a constant that grudge-holding is with him and that you yourself might one day be on the receiving end of just such a grudge.
What a first class a-hole.
People love to listen to him talk. They like the way how he says that other countries should pay for our protection. They also likes the way how he says he’ll make China pay. If Trump ever got his hands on the power of this country he would have us in trade wars within months and major wars within a year. Trump, fun to watch, but not what America needs.
He shouldn’t hold a grudge against Newt, since he was the only one who offered Trump any deference. He ought to hold out for a position in the Gingrich campaign and/or administration.
Trump: No one party can contain his enormous ego.
I heard he wants to rename the USA and call it the United States of Trump.
Trump is as bad, if not worse, than the Clintons when it comes to a GRUDGE.
Trump is a man of principle.
The principle being that of a kid in a playground football game, who, if the others don’t play the game his way, he’s going to take his football, and go play with a different group that might be more amenable to his way of playing the game.
In other words, he’s a first class a-hole.
Since when was Trump ever a part of the conservative ideal?
Just because a guy likes money doesn’t make him conservative.
Witness Warren Buffet, Bill Gates or any of the Kennedys.
Why? Rove is doing the same thing to voters! Revenge on voters w/his half *** candidate he keeps pushing to keep GOP elite control. Good on Trump.
I wanted to see that debate - what part of a candidate NOT willing to debate but wants the highest office in the land do you embrace?
Mitt uses money to win and not his half a** concern for America. He can’t win on his love or success FOR America.
All the weasels CANNOT handle scrutinity but want to lead us? IMO, Santorum and NEWT are the only ones with integrity - sink or swim - they want the BEST for America - the other candidates want the best for themselves.
There would be NO protection from the media in that debate - and whatever the candidates lack will surface for sure!
Trump as a Third Party candidate will give a second term for Obumba. That means the big O gets to name two more Supreme Court judges and will get a chance to complete his "transformation" of America.
Kinda like Arlen Specter.
Donald Trump, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.....the three amigos.
What do you do if your candidate is a dud? Split the Republican vote. Democrats - they try to pick all the candidates.
Birthers threw the door open and invited him in...happy now?
Rove et al can shove Romney where the sun don't shine.
Trump, who is your base of support? Who are your constituents?
So, I think he believes in holding a grudge.
Everyone knew that Trump was a narcissistic egomaniac with delusions of grandeur and that he was petty and vindictive. A lifetime of being surrounded by sycophants ensured that Trump was never close to accepting anything but his own opinion - about anything - and that his political naiveté would lead him to utter sometimes harsh but welcome criticisms of Obama but also lead him to eventually act out his fantasy of being the king of the world, via the political system. Now, he's making not-so-veiled threats about holding a grudge against those politicians who are 'disloyal' (translation: not subservient) to him in some way, shape or form.
I believe that Obama will lose the election by such a huge margin - no matter who the GOP nominates to run against him - that Trump and his third party candidacy won't matter. Still, 'The Donald' could present a tremendous problem for conservatives this election year. He could be another Perot. Then again, he could end up a laughingstock. I sincerely hope its the latter.
Don’t forget, with all the caterwalling he’s doing about the birth certificate, when Sheriff Arpaio, who is in a position to actually do something about it, asked for donations, the billionaire couldn’t be bothered....He donated to Rahm Emanuel but not Arpaio.
So if anybody but Newt or Santorum gets the nomination he’ll run 3rd party.
I don’t see Romney being pompous but he is very much self promoting with the help of the elite Rockefeller enablers. Recall these were Reagan’s antagonists.
[he could end up a laughingstock...]
Needless to say, I agree with your comment and I intend to do everything possible to reveal this obamabot as the charlatan he really is.
Personally, I think his claims of enormous wealth is just as inflated as his pathological ego.
Trump is already a laughingstock out here in flyover country.
He'll draw more votes from Ubama than the Republican.
How hard of a fight did the GOP put up with BOzo’s last two Supreme Court noms? Can you honestly say these traitors didn’t get exactly what they wanted? If Mittens was president what kind of judge do you think he’d nominate? There’s no way it’d be a conservative.
Who is this ‘Donald Trump’? How many divisions does *he* have?
Trump has always been a ‘rat. Maybe not a progressive, four left appendaged ‘rat, but a ‘rat nonetheless.
“If Mittens was president what kind of judge do you think hed nominate?”
You’ve got me there. But, Mitt has stated he will appoint conservatives to the court. I realize his word means nothing, but at least we have a chance with Mitt vs O’bam, don’t you think?
We don't need another fake election - we need a revolution. What a bunch of waisted time going thru the motions with a media driven, manufactured candidate that has nothing in common with your values & needs. I would suggest that this site have a topic of living outside of this country - places where you can speak your mind & not be fined or jailed.
You THINK?! LOL Trump has ALWAYS been all over the political party map. A true political chameleon making chumps out of conservatives. In his heart and soul Trump's a liberal! Wake up folks! Anyone who supports Trump is as bad as those who support Ron Paul. You're ALL nuts!
You need your oil checked. There are two kinds of nuts - the RP kind and yours. Trump has more right to speak as a businessman than mitt anyday!
He has MORE interest in America and America succeeding than snake in the grass mitt.
Everyone of us who has a deep interest in this country is political - ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ Trump isn’t looking for political power but like the rest of us - we damn well want someone who has a DEEP interest in America and not themselves - like the weasels mitt and rove and the GOP elite.
Trump’s DEEP interest is himself!
Trump, Romney and Paul... three scumbag a-holes!
People love to listen to him talk. They like the way how he says that other countries should pay for our protection. They also likes the way how he says hell make China pay. If Trump ever got his hands on the power of this country he would have us in trade wars within months and major wars within a year. Trump, fun to watch, but not what America needs.
However....Trump cannot be trusted on that issue...because some of the products he hawks are made in Communist China. I doubt he is willing to put high tariffs on the Communist Chinese when it will affect his wallet
[A true political chameleon making chumps out of conservatives...]
You wouldn’t know it by a whole lot of people on FR, even Rush has shown he has a lot of respect for him.
I have this uneasy feeling Rushs’ wife Kathryn will pop up Trumps’ “The Apprentice” to promote , in some way , her tea company.
( I only watched about fifteen minutes of that show so I don’t know if a company would fit into how that crap show operates)
but at least we have a chance with Mitt vs Obam, dont you think?
“We”? What “we”? Romneypuke would actually be worse than Zero since the Rs are supposed to be different from and better than the Dems. Romney is a leftist sleazeball, so why would “we” be better off with him? Plus if he’s forced on us as a candidate, he’ll lose, so “we” will be stuck with Zero even if Romneypuke does win (which he will not).
My experience with snakes is that sometimes you can’t see them and sometimes even come close to stepping on them. Snakes are not pompous critters just somewhat sneaky.
Strong suspicion Romney will end up with the nomination. This process is so damn rigged.
Trump holds a grudge—and he knows a lot of people some of them unsavory folks. I don’t blame Trump—He was used by folks and then, when it was to their advantage to dump on him—they did (ie Huntsman, Michele B.). To his credit Newt didn’t neither did Sarah P. We shall see what Trump’s wrath shall be—It will not be pretty but it will be entertaining to watch. He may wait years for his revenge—but it will come. Yes, he is Vindictive and mean in an old 18th century ways. Watch and see.
He probably wouldn’t even do as well as Nader.
