We don’t disagree that much! I agree with everything you said except that I’m just saying it was wrong for Trump to say those exact words.
“If” he said them. I read a transcript that had exactly those words, and I quoted directly from it. Now I do have to go see what Sharyll Atkinson said about this to see “if” Trump was misquoted. If he was then I take it back.
But if he wasn’t, he needs to back off, apologize and move on.
Someone said upstream, and I believe it was Bray, that Republicans make it worse for themselves by apologizing, and democrats never have to. While I agree with this, Trump is not your average Republican. I can see him apologizing, then getting back in the face of ANY reporter who won’t let it go.
That’s what Trump should do. He IS different.
And at this moment of the campaign I support Trump, Cruz and Walker. Those are the only ones I would vote for.
And at this moment of the campaign I support Trump, Cruz and Walker--in that order. Those are the only ones I would vote for.
The men who SERVED North Vietnam.
While Trump spoke in a blunt manner, he was merely answering McCain’s uncalled for nasty commentary about Trump “bring out the crazies” a remark that started the whole thing.
MCCain is not some saint who cannot be disparaged.
Obviously "Brain Fog," caused by Wi-Fi radio waves...
Lol! Been trying to use this#5. Samsung android with mixed success! (Battery is about gone as well
Let's pretend I'm representing Trump. Trump may apologize to McCain when McCain apologizes to all Wacko Birds and Crazies AKA, McCain's and the Republican base. Until then Heck No!!!!
Don’t you find it interesting that the same people who were outraged about his immigration statement are upset about the McCain comment. They are far more outraged than about the babies being butchered or our 5 dead Marines.
He is who he is and we will disagree with half of it, but the PC apologies have got to stop. Watch him move up in the polls.
Don’t stop going to outings. Someone sent the following to me & it’s good advice...
The 21 Paths to Ageing Contentment:
1. Its time to use any money you saved up. Use it and enjoy it. Don’t just keep it for those who may have no notion of the sacrifices you made to get it. Remember there is nothing more dangerous than a son or daughter-in-law with big ideas for your hard earned capital. Warning: This is also a bad time for an investment, even if it seems wonderful or fool-proof. They only bring problems and worries and this is a time for you to enjoy some peace and quiet.
2. Stop worrying about the financial situation of your children and grandchildren, and don’t feel bad spending your money on yourself. You’ve taken care of them for many years, and you’ve taught them what you could. You gave them an education, food, shelter and support. The responsibility is now theirs to earn their own money.
3. Keep a healthy life, without great physical effort. Do moderate exercise (like walking every day), eat well and get your sleep. It’s easy to become sick, and it gets harder to remain healthy. That is why you need to keep yourself in good shape and be aware of your medical and physical needs. Keep in touch with your doctor, get tested even when you’re feeling well. Stay informed.
4. Always buy the best, most beautiful items for your significant other. The key goal is to enjoy your money with your partner.
*One day one of you will miss the other, and the money will not provide any comfort then, enjoy it together.
5. *Dont let the past drag you down. Don’t stress over the little things.
You’ve already overcome so much in your life. You have good memories and bad ones, but the important thing is the present. Don’t let the future frighten you. Feel good in the now. Small issues will soon be forgotten.
6. *Regardless of age, always keep love alive. Love your partner, love life, love your family, love your neighbor and remember: “A person is not old as long as he or she has intelligence and affection.”
7. Be proud, both inside and out. Don’t stop going to your hair salon or barber, do your nails, go to the dermatologist and the dentist, keep your perfumes and creams well stocked. When you are well-maintained on the outside, it seeps in, making you feel proud and strong.
8. Don’t lose sight of fashion trends for your age, but keep your own sense of style. There’s nothing worse than an older person trying to wear the current fashion among youngsters. You’ve developed your own sense of what looks good on you - keep it and be proud of it. It’s part of who you are.
9. ALWAYS stay up-to-date. Read newspapers, watch the news. Go online and read what people are saying. Make sure you have an active email account and try to use some of those social networks. You’ll be surprised which old friends you’ll meet. Keeping in touch with what is going on and with the people you know is important at any age.
10. Respect the younger generation and their opinions. They may not have the same ideals as you, but they are the future, and will take the world in their direction. Give advice, not criticism, and try to remind them of yesterday’s wisdom that still applies today.
11. Never use the phrase: “Back in my time.” Your time is now. As long as you’re alive, you are part of this time. You may have been younger, but you are still you now, having fun and enjoying life.
12. Some people embrace their golden years, while others become bitter and surly.
*Life is too short to waste your days on the latter.
Spend your time with positive, cheerful people, it’ll rub off on you and your days will seem that much better.
*Spending your time with bitter or angry people will make you older and harder to be around.
13. Do not surrender to the temptation of living with your children or grandchildren (if you have a financial choice, that is). Sure, being surrounded by family sounds great, but we all need our privacy.
They need theirs and you need yours. If you’ve lost your partner (our deepest condolences), then find a person to move in with you and help out. Even then, do so only if you feel you really need the help or do not want to live alone.
14. Don’t abandon your hobbies. If you don’t have any, make new ones. You can travel, hike, cook, read or dance. You can adopt a cat or a dog, grow a garden, and play cards, checkers, chess, dominoes or golf. You can paint, volunteer at an NGO or just collect certain items. Find something you like and spend some real time having fun with it.
15. Even if you don’t feel like it, try to accept invitations. Baptisms, graduations, birthdays, weddings, conferences. Try to go. Get out of the house, meet people you haven’t seen in a while, experience something new (or something old). But don’t get upset when you’re not invited. Some events are limited by resources, and not everyone can be hosted. The important thing is to leave the house from time to time. Go to museums, go walk through a field. Get out there.
16. Be a conversationalist. Talk less and listen more. Some people go on and on about the past, not caring if their listeners are really interested. That’s a great way of reducing their desire to speak with you. Listen first and answer questions, but don’t go off into long stories unless asked to. Speak in courteous tones and try not to complain or criticize too much unless you really need to. Try to accept situations as they are. Everyone is going through the same things, and people have a low tolerance for hearing complaints. Always find some good things to say as well.
17. *Pain and discomfort go hand in hand with getting older. Try not to dwell on them but accept them as a part of the cycle of life we’re all going through. Try to minimize them in your mind. They are not who you are, they are something that life added to you. If they become your entire focus, you lose sight of the person you used to be.
18. If you’ve been offended by someone - forgive them. If you’ve offended someone - apologize. Forgive, forget and move on with your life.
*Don’t drag around resentment with you. It only serves to make you sad and bitter. It doesn’t matter who was right. Someone once said: “Holding a grudge is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die.” Don’t take that poison.
19. If you have a strong belief, savor it. Live your faith and set an example. Live true to your beliefs and let that memory sway others.
*But don’t waste your time trying to convince others. They will make their own choices no matter what you tell them, and it will only bring you frustration
20. *Laugh. Laugh A LOT. Laugh at everything. Remember, you are one of the lucky ones. You managed to have a life, a long one. Many never get to this age, never get to experience a full life. But you did. So what’s not to laugh about? Find the humor in your situation.
21. *Take no notice of what others say about you and even less notice of what they might be thinking.
They’ll do it anyway, and you should have pride in yourself and what you’ve achieved. Let them talk and don’t worry. They have no idea about your history, your memories and the life you’ve lived so far. There’s still much to be written, so get busy writing and don’t waste time thinking about what others might think. Now is the time to be at rest, at peace and as happy as you can be!
McCain always says “Politics isn’t Bean Bag”, well how you like those beans now Johnny? Trump called for McCain to be beaten in the primary as well. No matter what happens, you can bet that Trump will back that statement up. If the current Trump resembles any democrat it might be Harry Truman, noted for speaking the truth. I don’t think trying to destroy Trump by feigned outrage at insulting the “untouchable” RINO McCain is going to work in a primary race as McCain is only liked by Dems and RINOS. Ted Cruz is my preferred candidate at this time, but Trump is reeking havoc on the leftist media, the Dems, and RINOs and driving the conversation instead of what they want to talk about. He’s right about politicians being weak and nuanced, following the advice of political science consultants instead of their heart. Bravo Mr. Trump, keep it up!
Thank you for posting the full video.
Bravo Mr. Trump, keep it up!
I’m with you. Give me a straight talker any day. We can agree to disagree, but at least I know what he is saying.
Unlike Barry the God who outright lies and get away with it...
Me, too!!! Cruz, Trump, Walker!!! Also, I like Ben Carson........the GOP RINO & Establishment just don’t get it. This campaign is not only for the POTUS slot....it is for the continued life of the Republic. Trump sees as it is, many of the rest of the GOP & Democrat pack....think it’s business as usual...lots of blabbing....but little real, concrete, effective action!!! IMHO, Obama & his Obamabot followers and media want to actively try to destroy the USA!!! Just one man’s opinion!!!
I would add... that is a pretty accurate opinion.
