Donald, saying, " Fuck the Chinese, I will tax you 35%." Yeah, sounds like you'd really help us get along well with other countries. Trump is the fucking idiot.
BOYCOTT Celebrity Apprentice!
Do not support this tyrannical maniac in any way?
For me, what makes the Unites States of America great is that it is comprised of people from every corner of the globe in a melting pot the likes of which have never before been seen.
Today, we, the American people, face challenges of unprecedented proportions. We are fighting wars around the world; we face an economy in ruin where millions of Americans have no jobs and worry about putting food on the table; we face a deficit that threatens the very structure of our economy; we watch as our children will be the first generation in America who may earn less than did we; and, most sadly, we watch as the American people become increasingly polarized and start focusing on our differences rather than those things which will hold in common.
The greatest asset of America is our diversity. It is what makes us great. Most of us come from families blended from multiple countries and ethnicities. Other than being American, could I say I was French? Irish? English? German? Italian? Spanish? And even then my ancestors were of multiple ethnicities themselves. To be American means that you a person of this world, looking for a better life and hoping for freedom and happiness for all.
So that is why I am so appalled at Donald Trump, who has done nothing positive for our country (bankrupt Casinos and Gilded Penthouses do not qualify to me as productive) attacking the standing President of the United States and being a race baiter are about as low life as are the patrons of his casinos.
And in a stunning moment I actually agreed with Jan Brewer, the Governor or Arizona (look at my articles, we never agree). Last night, Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ) told CNN’s John King that this issue “is leading our country down a path of destruction.” Americans agree, with 64 percent saying “they would definitely not vote for Trump in 2012″ and half of all Americans believing he’d be a “poor” or “terrible” leader. Jan Brewer said get over it!!!!!!!
I ask each of you to tell everyone you know to boycott Celebrity Apprentice. Send messages to sponsors that you will boycott their products. The only way to end tyranny is to threaten its existence.
Reality television is not really something I enjoy. Most of it seems so staged and filled with the idea of worshiping individuals with little to no talent purely for the sake of manufactured celebrity and making fun of them. Then you have shows like the Bachelor which has the moral message that it is normal to line up 50 woman to date and have sex with and slowly throw possible " loves" off the cliff. These shows are rotting the moral soul of the American.
It was bad enough when we had to hear "Birther Queen" Orly Taitz rant on and on about President Obama not being a natural born US citizen, but she could more easily be dismissed as a fraud and liar and just damn crazy. (See Birther Queen - Birther Lawsuit Witnesses: Orly Taitz Told Us To Lie for details on her lies and distortions).
But then we have Donald Trump up the ante (more on his gaming/alleged organized crime ties later) by relentlessly declaring that President Obama was not born in the United States. Ignoring that the State of Hawaii had issued a Certificate of Birth, on the only form legally authorized in Hawaii, Trump said he had sent minions into the field to prove that our President was not born in the United States. He even boldly claimed that the original long form certificate had disappeared.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper made it his business to find out who Trump’s crack team is actually talking to in Hawaii and, in a two-part interview, confronted Trump about his research. Trump informed Cooper that he just learned the the birth certificate is “not there and it doesn’t exist.” Who told him that? “Somebody,” Trump said
Woops! On Thursday, Hawaii born President Obama released the long form certificate and said:
"I know that there is going to be a segment of people for which no matter what we put out, this issue will not be put to rest," Obama said. "But I am speaking for the vast majority of the American people as well as for the press. We do not have time for this kind of silliness. We have better stuff to do. I have got better stuff to do. We have got big problems to solve."Opposing President Obama does not at all make anyone a racist. Critique his policies, actions, stances, agenda, etc. But it's mind boggling that people think the birther nonsense has nothing to do with race, xenophobia (his "different" name), bigotry, etc. It's fine to dislike/disagree with Obama's political vision. I may disagree with that, but can respect that. But the questioning of his citizenship has 100% to do with bigots not wanting to admit that they don't like/trust/want a brown man with a less than WASPy family history. Their fear and hatred is just coded in slightly less offensive terms.
Yes we have many huge issues to solve and arguing about whether President Obama was born in the US should not have been one of them.
But Donald Trump made it his rallying cry. Why? Could it be because President Obama is black? Did he need to inflate the ratings on his reality show to make an extra buck? Or is Trump just the very worst sort of bigot, liar and opportunist?
Let's ask Donald to tell us more about his having not served in Vietnam. Earlier this week, Donald Trump said during an interview that he avoided being called to serve in the Vietnam War because he "got lucky" and "had a very high draft number." The Smoking Gun reports, however, that appears not to have been the case.
According to the website, Selective Service records tell a different story:
By the time his number (356) was drawn during the December 1, 1969 draft lottery, Trump had already received four student deferments and a medical deferment, according to military records on file with the National Archives and Records Administration. An extract of Trump’s Selective Classification record, seen here, was provided in response to a TSG records request.So Donald what is the truth? What are these horrible medical deferments which you claimed to have?
But Donald is not done yet. He is still unsure about that birth certificate. And what of all of those people still claiming the certificate is a fake (Donald have you joined this too?)?
The son of the Doctor who delivered President Obama says "We can attest to the fact that it is indeed dad's signature," Yoshimura-Sinclair said. "It's not a common name over here. There's no confusion that it was dad."
The Sinclair sons said they imagine he would be thrilled one of the babies he delivered grew up to be president. "I'm just honored and proud of my father," Karl Sinclair said.
The Sinclairs hope the birth certificate will end the speculation. "It distracts from all the issues," Ivalee Sinclair said. "To me, the birth certificate doesn't lie," Karl Sinclair said. "I think that should put everything to bed."
So did Trump offer any apology for making an issue of nothing? No he instead heaped more praise on his already over-inflated ego declaring:
“I'm very proud of myself, because I've accomplished something that no one else has been able to accomplish"—and, just in case anybody missed the self-congratulation, “ I really did a great job.”I think John Avalon summed that up best in saying:
"This is the political equivalent of lighting a house on fire, calling 911 and then expecting a medal."History will be more unforgiving and see the birther conspiracy more clearly than we have in our contemporary debates. It will be hard to miss the fact that so much time and energy was spent trying to prove the illegitimacy and un-American-ness of our first black president. It will seem shameful. And it is.
But is Donald ashamed or deterred?
Unfortunately, by that measure, today's humiliation was a wild success. Donald just has to keep the spotlight going through May 22, the season finale of Celebrity Apprentice. So Trump would do well to search for another outrageous accusation that gives voice to the white rage boiling within the GOP base that he could ride for another month or so. He's already begun questioning Obama's academic record based largely on the notion that black people are too stupid and lazy to get into Columbia University, so how did Obama?
But is Donald now past attacking our President? No, now he has to challenge whether a Harvard law graduate had the "qualifications" really necessary to get into college. What "qualifications" does Donald care about? Maybe that President Obama is black and not a fat, balding white-man like Trump.
The women of "The View" reacted to President Obama's release of his long-form birth certificate on Wednesday by heaping scorching criticism on Donald Trump, who has become perhaps the most famous birther in the world, and who claimed credit for Obama's decision to release the certificate. The co-hosts started by condemning his recent comments that Obama was not qualified to attend Harvard and Columbia.
"It's very racist," Joy Behar said. "...In other words, he can't fathom that a black man could be that smart. That's what's behind this."
So Donald tell us please why you think a Harvard law graduate was not qualified to attend Harvard and Columbia. And if you don't believe racism is involved just look at what Republican Sally Kern had the audacity to say.
Oklahoma state Rep. Sally Kern, a Republican, made questionable remarks in the wake of a measure seeking to ban affirmative action programs advancing in the state, Tulsa World reports.
According to the local outlet:
Rep. Sally Kern, R-Oklahoma City, said minorities earn less than white people because they don’t work as hard and have less initiative.
“We have a high percentage of blacks in prison, and that’s tragic, but are they in prison just because they are black or because they don’t want to study as hard in school? I’ve taught school, and I saw a lot of people of color who didn’t study hard because they said the government would take care of them.”Funny but did you know that despite prevailing stereotype, whites, not blacks, collect greatest share of public aid dollars.
Anne D. Hill, director of programs for the National Urban League and other welfare supporters argue that numbers, and not erroneous stereotypes, tell the real story about public assistance clients: Some 61 percent of welfare recipients are White, while 33 percent are Black, according to 1990 Census Bureau statistics, the latest figures available.
So Donald tell me again why President Obama is not "qualified"?
Or Donald, better yet, tell us about the "Billions" of dollars you are suppose to be worth and how you made that money.
According to the Huffington Post:
For years, Donald Trump has boasted that his casinos are free of the taint of organized crime, using this claim to distinguish his gambling ventures from competitors. But Trump's casinos turn out not to be so squeaky clean.
One of his prime Atlantic City developments, the Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino, relied on a partnership with two investors reputedly linked to the mob, prompting New Jersey regulators to force Trump to buy them out. And he employed a known Asian organized crime figure as a vice president at his Taj Mahal casino for five years, defending the executive against regulators’ attempts to take away his license, according to law enforcement officials.
As the famously brash developer now considers a run for the presidency, this history could complicate his efforts to project an image of a trusted power in the business world. It exposes a seamy underside to Trump's rise to fortune -- one that involved intimate links to unsavory characters.As voters learn more about such links between Trump and reputed organized crime figures, "it will get more difficult for him," says John Geer, a political science professor at Vanderbilt University. "Under that withering examination, his past associations and troubles will all emerge and could make it tough in a Republican primary."
Maybe this whole Trump for President is just a gimmick to make Donald more money. If it is a gimmick Donald should be ashamed at the way he treated our President and worse, how foolish he makes all of us look to the world.
And what does it say of NBC? Lawrence O'donnell of MSNBC's The Last Word, recently took them to task by raising the question as to NBC's responsibility to STOP allowing trump to be doing what he is doing, since he is an employee of NBC. O'donnell demands NBC executives break their silence with their knowledge since they know if is Trump's reality show is renewed for last year since that would clearly answer question if Trump is gonna actually run. Then there is the the obvious conflict because MSNBC news and The Apprentice are owned by same network. He challenges the network to tell the truth NOW!!!
Since he likely did all of this for attention and ratings, America should send a clear message and NOT tune in to his STUPID Reality show finale. Sadly many Americans will tune in to see his nonsense, much as did Romans sit and watch Gladiators fight to the death. Blood and carnage is always entertaining sport as long as it is not your family. But in Donald's world, all of us minions are his sport - unless you have a billion or two to spare on his gaudy idealizations of "luxury."
Donald Duck was funny. His Uncle Scrooge was cute too. Donald Trump is neither funny nor cute, but old and calculating and would send us all to food lines because we were just "too lazy."
The world's biggest American idiot, Donald Trump, is not funny!!
Here is information for anyone wanting to take him off the air!!!
Letters to Comcast, NBCU, Universal Studios and Sponsors of the Apprentice
Comcast now operates and owns the majority share of NBCUniversal. Both Comcast and NBCU tend to be viewer/consumer sensitive. Let both companies know you won't watch their programs or buy tickets to any Universal movie or visit the Universal theme parks, as long as they continue their association with this race-baiter. NBC also owns the Bravo and MSNBC cable channels, which may even more vulnerable to view ire. A quick trip to the Comcast website should provide all the names you need at the corporate level.
Your message should be specific (i.e. mention Apprentice sponsors) and brief. And if you tell them you are going to switch from Comcast to another cable provider, for example, do so and let them know. If you are going to boycott a Trump sponsor, do so and let NBCU, Comcast and the sponsor know.
Despite your anger, no cussin' or name calling, they just "round file" these.
