Trump Tapes, Faux Outrage, And Gamesmanship Dominating US Politics And LSM!!!!

Well, wow!  There’s a lot to say about the Trump tape, so please forgive me if I miss an aspect on this.

“Grab them by the pu**y” …….. yes, a horrible thing to say.   Here’s some quotes from the tape. 

At that point in the audio, Trump and Bush appear to notice Arianne Zucker, the actress who is waiting to escort them into the soap-opera set.

“Your girl’s hot as s—, in the purple,” says Bush, who’s now a co-host of NBC’s “Today” show.

“Whoa!” Trump says. “Whoa!”

“I’ve got to use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump says. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait.”

“And when you’re a star, they let you do it,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”

“Whatever you want,” says another voice, apparently Bush’s.

“Grab them by the p—y,” Trump says. “You can do anything.”

Later, it was documented that Trump and Zucker “air kissed” when they met.  Apparently, there was no “p—y” grabbing at that point …… or, for that matter, at any point. 

Now, raise your hand if you are entirely surprised to learn that Trump is a cad.  Whether you’re pro-Trump or anti-Trump, none of this should be a surprise. 

At this point, most of the faux outrage seems to come from the establishment Repubs.  This was an eleven y/o hot mic tape of a private discussion between two guys having some locker-room chat. 

Now, for me, this is a huge nothing burger.  Trump is exactly what I thought he was.  For the Dims, well, they have always characterized Trump in this manner.  This shouldn’t move the needle in any manner.  Sadly, it will, mostly because of the low-information voters who are/were undecided at this moment.  It always fascinates me about the amount of people who are supposedly undecided at this moment in the POTUS race.  How can one be undecided at this point?  At any rate, there’s no sane person who is going to change their vote in this election because of a character issue.  If character matters to the individual voter, they would never support Clinton.  It’s laughable.  They were entirely okay with Willie shoving a cigar up the privates of a young intern in the oval office, and to this day insist that in no way disqualified him from being POTUS, but, to hear some horrid banter is just a bridge too far?  Get real. 

As far as the caddy statements, I hate to admit this, but, I’ve engaged in locker-room banter in the past.  I grew out of that sort of thing decades ago, but, I did.  If we’re all perfectly honest with ourselves, I suspect most of us have at one time or another.  And, it’s not just men.  I’ve had women openly comment on my posterior.  I’ve also had women who literally grabbed my crotch and let me know what they wanted.  It’s not that I’ve ever been a hotty stud type of guy, it’s more likely that the women were really, really drunk, or something.  My point is, it doesn’t do us any good to pretend this is confined to only males.  My immediate thought when I first read about the outrage on this quote was to wonder how many of the supposed outraged women really, really, really enjoyed the “Fifty Shades of Grey” book. 

My very second thought was “nicely played”. 

Wait ……. did I say an 11 y/o tape?  It has been in the possession of NBC this entire time.  But, suddenly, after holding onto this information for 11 years, now, one month before the election NBC decides the public has a right to know this all important stuff.  It also happened to be on the exact day that Wikileaks dropped thousands of emails from John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chair and life-long Clinton lackey.  This is also after Trump has stated that he was going to go after the Clintons on the behavior they have had towards women.  This is absolutely a brazen attempt by a LSM outlet to alter the course of a US election.  This destroys any notion that the US has free and fair elections.  We don’t.  Unfortunately, media outlets such as NBC have great sway on the American public.  They are functioning, simply, as an extension of the Clinton campaign. 

Unfortunately, that’s the state we’re in, today.  That’s what any Repub candidate signs onto when they run for election. 

Now, as to what Trump needs to do …… even before the tape revelations and especially now, I don’t believe Trump should engage in the relative comparisons between his words and Bill’s actions.  The sad fact of the matter is, it doesn’t resonate.  Currently, the electorate doesn’t care about character.  Sure, they have a lot of people pretending it does, but, it doesn’t.  Now, I would counter-punch, exactly as I’ve written here.  They’re going to hammer in his words but, forget the deeds of the Clintons?  When they try to hammer Trump on his words, hammer back with the words of Hillary.  But, circle it back to the issues.  Benghazi is perfect for this.  It calls to mind the dishonestly of Hillary, while reminding the voters of what a disastrous foreign policy Hillary executed as SoS.  And, then, it easily circles back to our security and immigration policies.   This is what he needs to do.  This is what resonates with the voters.  Once we’re on security and immigration policies, then it’s easily segued into the economic issues the average US worker faces today.  That’s just for the rest of the campaign, in general, but, also as well for the debate, tonight.  For the debate tonight, Trump needs to be much more pinpointed and focused and ready to exploit the openings that Hillary will give him.  Last debate, he just let too many opportunities go.  He needs to be sharper and reactive.  He needs to talk about the specific actions and inactions of Hillary.  Sadly, according to Trump, he’s still shunning to work and preparation most people do before a debate.  Hopefully, he’s just playing coy and did do some prep work.  Else, his performance will probably be on par with his last one, which, could lose the election. 

Well, those are my thoughts.  What do you think?

    well……I think you’re spot on.

    NBC tried to pull at “look elephants”….and all it does is remind us all of a humidor..and Obama’s classic “you ain’t my nigga”

    As far as the undecideds……I would guess 75% of them will buck up, get in the car, and vote Trump…at least I hope so

    Dunno if it’s he ego, hardheaded…..he should have crammed for this test

    James, as a Christian brother, you really piss me off at times. You might want to start thinking about retirement, where you can mow the lawn, trim a few trees, go to the diner for breakfast, and watch the little birdies on your bird-feeder. Your thought processes have nothing else to offer, unless you’re trying to impress “ME'” of course.

    Since you know your Bible and biblical history so well without relying on JSue to do your biblical research for you (and even she’s bad at that), I suggest the both of you read the history of Israel before their downfall. It’s found in 1 Kings 21, where you can find Bill and Hill mimicked by Ahab and Jezebel. Ahab and Jezebel came first, need I remind you. But go get a few shots and beers for further understanding.

    It didn’t end well for either of them. A Jehu came along and saved a nation. A kick-ass that loved his God and country, and not a weak-willed, spineless “Christian” like we have today running things.

    You don’t think Donald Trump is America’s Jehu, do you? And the man doesn’t even drink or smoke! But he’s kick-ass and loves America. What say you, James?

    • suyts says:

      Well, this is what I have to say …….

      I wish you’d be a little more specific as to what I wrote which “pisses” you off as a Christian brother.

      I view Jehu as a tool of vengeance of God, rather than a savior of a nation. We know what happened to Israel. It wasn’t saved. But, specifically towards Jehu,

      30 And the Lord said unto Jehu, Because thou hast done well in executing that which is right in mine eyes, and hast done unto the house of Ahab according to all that was in mine heart, thy children of the fourth generation shall sit on the throne of Israel.

      31 But Jehu took no heed to walk in the law of the Lord God of Israel with all his heart: for he departed not from the sins of Jeroboam, which made Israel to sin.

      32 In those days the Lord began to cut Israel short: and Hazael smote them in all the coasts of Israel;

      33 From Jordan eastward, all the land of Gilead, the Gadites, and the Reubenites, and the Manassites, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, even Gilead and Bashan.

      That’s 2 Kings 10, KJV.

    • Me says:

      He doesn’t have to impress anyone, but it’s nice to know I am still living rent free in your mind! In fact I probably pissed off James on numerous ocassions, but there is a thing call respect and truth! Something you don’t understand!

  3. Me says:

    You are spot on, and although, In my opinion Trump moped the floor with all 3 tonight he still held back and the best is yet to come! The Dems keep throwing everything they can at him, but it pales in comparison to what they have done. And by now you know what they are throwing with some no names in a lawsuit as they have done before in Texas trying to make that stick! Respect and truth will win the day over known liers and collaborators any and every day! Just saying!

    • Me says:

      People know the LSM game for what it is andwho controlls that! Tha average Joe are aware of what is going on and don’t believe that BS anymore. they are done!

      • Me says:

        Unfortunately here in Canada they bought it hook line and sinker the last election and have Trudeau raising another tax on everything. Now they know the media party here is live and well, next time it won’t be as favorible and they will go the way of the dinasaurs media. We need to reverse everything Trudeau does here as well.

  4. Me says:

    This was priceless!😉

    The relief for me was when McCain pulled his support. I was feeling unclean with all the establishment support.

    As others have said, it is locker room talk. Which means you never say it in public, and you say it as braggadocio. The Pajama Boys will not vote for Trump, but they were not going to in the first place.

  7. Latitude says:

    well, even the liberal news is saying Trump wiped the floor with her…
    …of course they are trying to spin it as so unfair

    • philjourdan says:

      And again, listening to the morning drive host, they claimed it was a Hillary win. The guy is not a liberal, but definitely republican establishment.

      Watch for the push polls to do the same thing as the first one – give a small victory to Clinton.
