King of Debt announces he will renege on full faith and credit of America

Original post made by Oswaldo, Atherton: other, on Jun 22, 2016

Trump, again, shows ZERO economic sense:

I'm the king of debt. I'm great with debt. Nobody knows debt better than me," Trump told Norah O'Donnell in an interview that aired on "CBS This Morning." "I've made a fortune by using debt, and if things don't work out I renegotiate the debt. I mean, that's a smart thing, not a stupid thing."

"How do you renegotiate the debt?" Donnell followed up.

"You go back and you say, hey guess what, the economy crashed," Trump replied. "I'm going to give you back half."

Economy will crash under Trump, and he will then bury it completely with his ego.

One indefensible policy after another.

Folks then get distracted by the next crazy statement, one after another. Now, Republican candidates are angry at him.

Didn't talk about policy in his policy speech today, but did exceed his usual quota for lies.

CNN - JON BERMAN: This was a speech with broad sweeping statements like that. This will be a speech that is fact checked by the media. He said things that were NOT TRUE about his opposition to the war, time line there, same with Libya.

He lies so much, the media barely even bothers with it anymore.

He WAS factual about Hillary giving forgettable speeches - selling her soul and becoming beholden to bankers, lobbyist and foreign governments. Accepting $$$ from countries that execute LBGT folks. She is the Leona Helmsley of politics.

My my my -- you do have to love The Donald trolls. Never mind that The Donald has made deals with the very same governments that the poster from Atherton decries.

But I guess facts aren't the strong suit of Trumpistas...

[part removed.] Like that makes it right. It isn't right that either of them made these deals. Opposite sides of the same corrupt coin.

[part removed. comment without attacking other posters]

Let's review some facts, shall we? [part removed.]

The Donald insists that he is the pure one in this campaign. Trouble is, if you want to play that game, you had better be purer than the driven snow. And as has been shown over and over again, Trump is as dirty as it gets. He is more than willing to make deals with some pretty disgusting types -- as long as it benefits him.

Remember, those who live in glass houses...

and Hillary is "pure as the driven snow?" Hardly. You conveniently ignore they are BOTH corrupt as hell. So your choice will be the devil you like. Hillary. Swell.
