Broke, and broken, Trump looks for graceful exit from race

Original post made by Trump trolls conservatives, Menlo Park: Sharon Heights, on Jun 21, 2016

Has given up on all swing states to 'speechify' only in friendly red states.

The Trump campaign is flat broke (see below.) He has fired another campaign manager, this time it's the guy Trump defended for assaulting a reporter. Firing folks is just an admission of a hiring mistake. How presidential!

Trump has not been to crucial swing state Ohio in months.

Clinton has 6 times the staff on the streets in Ohio.

Clinton is spending millions on ads in Ohio. Broke/broken Trump? Zip.

Clinton and the Dems have built a huge data system with a 50 state strategy, while Trump has spent more on hats than data.

The Republican governor of Ohio has not endorsed Trump.

Every poll shows Trump tanking at a time when Republicans should be rising against Clinton.

The convention will be in Cleveland, and so many sponsors are backing out, the RNC will have to take a Trump tactic and sue for bankruptcy protection. So many republicans are backing out, Trump himself may have to speak each night just to fill up the air time.

This election is over. It only remains to count up how many seats the Dems pick up in both the senate (turns blue) and the House. Rumors are Trump has been offered $150M to step down, he is holding out for $5 billion.

How Trump-ian.

How Perfect.

The schadenfreude in this election will be yuuuuuuuge!


"Donald Trump loves to talk about how rich he (claims) is. But according to the latest campaign-finance report, his presidential bid is poor.

In the month after clinching his party's nomination, the billionaire businessman has raised just $3.1 million and has loaned his campaign $2.2 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

The campaign has also spent hundreds of thousands of dollars at Trump's own businesses, on products branded with his name and in direct payments to members of the family."

Having a coffee, watched some of clintons economic speech. She is just toying with Trump, like a cat with a mouse. Destruction. Slow. Methodical. Step by step.

By repeating HIS words.

Embarrassing, almost.

Has to be illegal to toy like that. Arrest her.

A Trump economy will make the Bush great recession look like a picnic.

We need a real economic conservative. Thank heavens he is getting thrownew out at the convention.

Woodside conservative -- "We need a real economic conservative."

And what good would that do? Has any non-Keynesian been able to accomplish much in terms of a nation's economic health?

Trump stayed off twitter for almost 12 hours earlier.

The new handlers are really working!

Heard a Trump spokesman on TV this morning responding to Mark Cuban's claim that Trump is broke...

"Mark Cuban wants to run for president. Mark Cuban is a failed reality TV star"

So, Trump is broke. Thanks for clearing that up.

A false claim of billions. No tax returns (hiding the lack of charitable giving and income.) And a dead broke campaign - COH of 1.2 million, not enough to buy a house around here.

How Trump-ian.

How Perfect.

The schadenfreude in this election will be yuuuuuuuge!

Trump is not a billionaire.

His name is on a lot of leveraged buildings but he calls himself the King of Debt again today.

Dude is a liar, albeit all in the name of branding for reality TV. And politics.

Debt. So presidential.
