    From the New York Post: Donald Trump’s campaign says a British man(Anthony Gilberthorpe) is countering claims that the GOP presidential nominee groped a woman on a cross-country flight more than three decades ago. The man says he was sitting across from the accuser and contacted the Trump campaign because he was incensed by her account — which is at odds with what he witnessed. “...Not only did he not do so (and I was present at all times) but it was she that was the one being flirtatious,” said in a note provided to The Post by the Trump campaign.

    PHILADELPHIA (CNN) — Donald Trump on Thursday offered up his most detailed prescriptions yet to address the student debt crisis, proposing an income-based cap on student loan payments and an ambitious student loan forgiveness program. Trump, in a meandering speech to a group of rowdy high school and college students, called for a single student loan repayment plan capped at 12.5% of a borrowers’ income and suggested borrowers would see their student debt forgiven after 15 years of making full payments. “We’re going to work it out. It’ll be a negotiation,” Trump said, prompting one student to shout out “Art...

Trump supporters have a deep wide and continuous well of enthusiasm for saving America and we will not stand by and reward you for your treachery.

Specifically, Trump tells then-“Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush that he just goes up to “beautiful” women and “grab[s] them by the p***y.” ...For the political party of the elephant, it was undoubtedly the elephant in the room. So, imagine fashion connoisseurs’ surprise when they noticed that Melania Trump walked into the debate hall wearing Gucci’s fuchsia pussy-bow blouse.

    The Republican National Committee on Saturday appeared to at least temporarily halt the operations of some of the “Victory” program that is devoted to electing Donald Trump. The move comes as the GOP nominee is under mounting pressure from elected Republicans to step aside after he was caught on tape bragging about sexually assaulting women. In an email from the RNC to a victory program mail vendor, with the subject line “Hold on all projects,” the committee asked the vendor to “put a hold” on mail production. “Please put a hold/stop on all mail projects right now.

And the denunciations that have rolled in so far are coming from all sides of the party — from those who support Trump to those who have long opposed him to those close to him who are offering platitudes about how what he said was wrong, but that he's still better than Hillary Clinton.

The Republican presidential candidate told CNN in a statement this week that "they admitted they were guilty. The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous. And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same." The five teens spent several years in jail, but the charges were dropped in 2002 after...

If all of these Trump business traits—passion, hard work, getting your hands dirty—sound distinctly similar to many of the themes Donald Sr. is hammering home on the Republican campaign trail it’s because they’ve run in the family for decades—and Don Jr. isn’t shy about telling voters as much.

    Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Sunday he expects to secure the Republican nomination on the first ballot. "I'm only interested in the first ballot," he said during a rally in Hagerstown, Md. "I'm not interested in second, third, fourth, nineteenth because I'm really interested in winning it early and that's it." Trump said he's not "playing games," adding he's going to win in states that other Republicans are not even going to campaign in. But during the rally, Trump slammed the primary system, calling it unfair. He criticized rival Ted Cruz for "bribing" delegates.

    MOST analysis of Donald Trump’s support in the primary elections has focused on his appeal to poorer, working-class white voters, who are assumed to have lost the most to globalisation and are more open to his particular brand of populist politics. But his victory in the New York Republican primary on April 19th underscored his wider support across the party’s base. Mr Trump took 61% of the vote overall (the first time he has gained over 50%) winning across all demographic groups. That was to be expected in his home state. However, averaging out his support in all state primaries...

Ross is suing Sheen in civil court and claims he did not disclose his HIV-positive before they had unprotected sex.

But there are a lot of voters who want to support Trump but aren't sure about him. Then there are voters who lean against supporting Trump but who are persuadable. It is those two classes of voters who could turn this GOP primary campaign on a dime and either give Trump a runaway victory or lead to a loss of support that would hand Ted Cruz a golden opportunity to...

    Ultimately, this post is about Reince Priebus, the theatrically incompetent chairman of the Republican National Committee, and his latest attempt to persuade the GOP establishment that he’s not as impotent and helpless as Donald Trump makes him look. (SNIP) The plan, in other words, is to persuade the man who ran roughshod over the entire party establishment to do what that very same establishment tells him is best. The idea, presumably, is that the candidate who won by flamboyantly breaking all of the unwritten rules will suddenly listen to those he vanquished. Why? Because of … voter data. And field...

In the highly conservative Greenville County, Trump outpaced both Cruz and Rubio. And exit polls showed Trump dominated with nearly every single voting bloc in the Republican Party's Palmetto State electorate: He won pluralities among both men (36%) and women (29%). He fared best among all age groups except the 17- to 29-year-old group, which narrowly favored Cruz. He dominated among voters who had not completed high school (45%) and some college (40%), while winning...

In all of those Southern states but one, candidates must reach either 15 or 20 percent of the vote to receive any delegates at all, as we noted last week. Rubio was already only pulling about 10 percent several of those states. With his standing weakened and the so-called...

    DES MOINES | Ted Cruz has assembled an impressive presidential campaign structure in Iowa, veteran political observers here say, with one going so far as to describe Cruz's campaign as perhaps "the most sophisticated" the first-in-the-nation caucus state has ever witnessed.Because of that grassroots organization, Cruz is primed to maintain his recent surge in the polls and win the Iowa Republican caucuses in five weeks, those observers say.Cruz, a tea party firebrand and first-term U.S. senator from Texas, was the first Republican candidate to enter the presidential race, on March 23. Nine months later, he has overtaken longtime front-runner Donald...

    Every show has an end. Just like "The Apprentice" - gripping the first few few seasons, tired and contrived in the last - Donald Trump's campaign is aging toward death, one reckless outburst at at time. Although the casual political junkie wouldn't know by the looks of most polls, the media fetish with The Donald and his cultish following.With primaries a bit less than 50 days out, at this point, previously skeptical pundits have assumed not only that Trump is the front-runner in the GOP primary, but that there is no real contest. But while cable news is capitalizing off...

    Ted Cruz will embark next week on a splashy swing through many of the states that vote on March 1, an effort to lock down support in those mostly Southern states before turning full attention to the first four voting contests of the 2016 Republican presidential primary.The Texas senator, flying with staff and his family on a chartered plane, will hit 12 cities in one week, flying from Las Vegas to St. Paul, Minn. on Dec. 17 after the next presidential debate, and wrapping up on Dec. 23 in Oklahoma City. The fly-around tour, dubbed "Take Off with Ted," will...

    Like a star football player holding out before training camp, Donald Trump said he may demand CNN pay him to be in next presidential debate. At a campaign rally in Macon, Georgia, Mr. Trump said he pulls in such big ratings that he deserves $5 million from CNN. "I won't do the debate unless they pay me 5 million dollars," said the real-estate tycoon worth billions. Mr. Trump told his audience at the rally, according to CBS News, that the network was treating him unfairly, over its coverage of his meeting with black pastors earlier in the day. He then...

    Tell us something we don’t know, Mr. President. We could have guessed as much by the puny air campaign more worthy of the Grand Duchy of Fenwick in The Mouse That Roared than by what was once the world’s only superpower. We wouldn’t be mounting any air campaign at all, had not the radical Islamists of the “JV team” Islamic State had not cut off the heads of two American journalists, Steven Sotloff and James Foley. Our delusional commander-in-chief, who still believes the massacre at Ft. Hood by jihadist Nidal Hasan is a case of “workplace violence” and that...
