  1. Trump’s newest misstep: turning his attention to Michelle Obama 10/21/16 04:01 PM—UPDATED 10/21/16 04:07 PM By Steve Benen By most measures, President Obama is the second most popular political figure in the country. Who’s first? His wife, First Lady Michelle Obama. For Democratic candidates, that’s good news. Not only is Michelle Obama an active campaigner as Election Day draws closer, she’s also demonstrated an ability to deliver some of the year’s most compelling and poignant addresses. For some reason, this combination of factors gave Donald Trump a very bad idea, which he put into practice this afternoon. “We have a president, all he wants to do is campaign. His wife, all she wants to do is campaign. And I see how much his wife likes Hillary,” Trump said. “But wasn’t she the one that originally started the statement, if you can’t take care of your home – right? – you can’t take care of the White House or the country.” First, it’s largely true that the First Lady maintains an active campaign schedule, but that’s apparently because she really wants Hillary Clinton to win and Donald Trump to lose. Criticizing her for hitting the campaign trail because she feels passionate about the race hardly seems wise. Second, Trump apparently wants voters to believe Michelle Obama doesn’t really like Clinton, and as proof, the Republican nominee is pointing to a quote from nine years ago: “f you can’t run your own house, you certainly can’t run the White House.” Did Michelle Obama actually say that? Sort of, but the context suggests Trump is trying to deceive. What she actually said nine years ago is, “So our view was that, if you can’t run your own house, you certainly can’t run the White House. So, so we’ve adjusted our schedules to make sure that our girls are first, so while he’s traveling around, I do day trips.” That’s not a swipe at Clinton; it didn’t have anything to do with Clinton. But aside from the misleading rhetoric, Trump – or at least the aides who help tell Trump what to say – must realize how risky it is to take on the First Lady like this. She’s not only twice as popular as Trump, he’s also effectively inviting Michelle Obama to take on an even higher profile, defending Clinton (which hurts Trump) and criticizing him (which also hurts Trump). Who’s the strategic genius on Team Trump who thought this was a good idea?
  2. Now to the important stuff. I saw 5 Clinton signs today. I don't think I've seen one Trump sign yet. To be fair to Donald this is in Boulder Colorado .
  3. Donald knows more then everyone about everything.
  4. That's a huge part of why he would be a terrible president.
  5. On my phone. I got it from Googling Donald Trump
  6. Just watched a video of this. They weren't happy with Donald.
  7. Not sure that's entirely true as most seasons they get letters from home, video visits or family members joining them.
  8. It's going to be a long 3 weeks.
  9. I worry about everything with him. Guy can't handle any type of adversity without acting like a spoiled child. The media would be all over him as president. He would explode as president with the constant push back he would get from congress and media and other countries.
  10. Not in my top 5 but Man Who Would Be King is a very good movie.
  11. Just imagine how he's going to keep reacting if he becomes president.
  12. They are most likely waiting to release the most damaging ones until November 21st, the week leading up to the election.
  13. I want to see leaked emails from Donald Trump and the Republicans for the past 10 years Once those have been released I can then make a decision on what's more credible. Until that happens all I see is a foreign government with an agenda trying to help one side getting elected. That doesn't bother you that the Russians want Trump to be president?
  14. I do care about the emails but I care more about a foreign government trying to rig our election.
