Bannon's work for Trump could drive Clinton's honesty score even lower. Clinton's core strategy has been to disqualify Trump as a potential president and commander-in-chief among a majority of voters. Bannon's strategy is to do the same for Clinton.
This week the nation watched as an increasingly desperate - even sad! - Donald Trump scrambled to shore up his bankrupt campaign. His latest attempt at a pivot - to use the pundits' preferred euphemism for blatant pandering - was pandering in the form of abandoning (pandbandoning?) his signature policy, the mass expulsion of 11 million undocumented immigrants. On Wednesday, he said if they paid back taxes, they could get legal status -- though this was, he assured, "no amnesty." But poor, desperate Donald is a failure even at pandering. His new policy is suspiciously close to what he relentlessly mocked his primary opponents for. Back then, he called Rubio a "lightweight choker" and Cruz "weak on illegal immigration," for proposing similar policies. Call it the Trump Paradox: he changes every position without the slightest hesitation and yet he's somehow always the same - as we saw this week when, surrounded by white people in Jackson, Mississippi, he called Hillary Clinton "a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future." No matter how many Trumps his new team rolls out, and no matter how much the shameful establishment Republicans who have endorsed him wish otherwise, he's a comically transparent man who's incapable of evolving and growing. As Trump himself put it, "I am who I am." It may be the only completely true thing he's ever said.
On August 17th, Donald Trump once again shook up his campaign. While there were early indications that Trump would "soften" his image, these were refuted by the August 19th release of his first general election campaign ad.
Trump is treated as an embodiment of a pure power. He does not advertise trying to convince his voters. He offers himself to be chosen, as an act of faith in his personhood. He offers them a chance, at last, to be themselves, to stand behind a champion who will reflect and defend them, who will make the best deal on their behalf. He offers them salvation.
Hillary will win despite the media just going along and repeating Trump's attempt to portray her as this dark person only out for herself. The American people are smarter than that and understand there is absolutely no comparison between her and Donald Trump.

He really is scared to debate Hillary Clinton. Admittedly she has some unfair advantages over Trump going into any debate -- experience, intelligence and knowledge.
Hillary Clinton is ahead in the polls, but it's more due to Donald Trump's many blunders than excitement with Mrs. Clinton. She has benefitted from be...
I never experienced a more satisfying meeting between a prominent American and Hungarian leadership in my two previous years as Ambassador. On the way out of the meeting, I turned to Hillary and said, "If you ever get tired of being First Lady, you might consider becoming Secretary of State."
From day one of the Obama administration, Mitch McConnell and his "patriotic" country of old white men (with the exception of John Boehner) gathered together like a meeting of the Dons and made it their one single purpose to block anything that our new president was going to try to do by any means necessary.

The alt right movement is an insurgent, racially tinged one that seeks to dismantle traditional conservative institutions to provide a political voice to an array of exiles on the far right.
Neither a narcissist nor compulsive liar shares your pain. The narcissist does not feel your pain because there is no ability to empathize. The compulsive liar does not feel pain over deceiving you.
Opportunists like Trump are here to take down this generation. And their job is easy. They have to deal with the usual suspects, those who were born politicians, the same ones who were raised by the system to serve, protect, and preserve it.
Here's the thing I can't believe you don't realize: I don't really care about you! Honestly, I don't! Do you see how I live?! A gold-covered mansion in the sky...private jumbo jets...helicopters. Do you ever think that, maybe, just maybe, I'm trying to limit my contact with you "little people" as much as humanly possible?
