Politico Publishes Trump Quotes Trying To Damage Him

Somehow, I think the people who support Trump know already what Trump is all about.

If Trump wins it means America is turning to an egotistical blowhard who loves America. It’s the response to being ruled for 8 years by an egotistical blowhard who hates America.

Here are some of my favorite (?)(depending on your perspective) Trump quotes:

-“A well-educated black has a tremendous advantage over a well-educated white in terms of the job market. … [I]f I were starting off today, I would love to be a well-educated black, because I believe they do have an actual advantage.” (NBC News, September 1989)

-“Our great African American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore!” (Twitter, April 28, 2015)

-“Most people think small, because most people are afraid of success, afraid of making decisions, afraid of winning. And that gives people like me a great advantage.” (The Art of the Deal, 1987)

-“I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.” (Playboy, March 1990)

“I want a very good-looking guy to play me.” (Master Apprentice, 2005)

“Sometimes, part of making a deal is denigrating your competition.” (The Art of the Deal, 1987)

-“Rosie’s a person that’s very lucky to have her girlfriend. And she better be careful or I’ll send one of my friends over to pick up her girlfriend. Why would she stay with Rosie if she had another choice?” (“Entertainment Tonight,” Dec. 21, 2006)

-“Probably I’ll sue her. Because it would be fun. I’d like to take some money out of her fat-ass pockets.” (“Entertainment Tonight,” Dec. 21, 2006)

– “Oftentimes when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world I would say to myself, thinking about me as a boy from Queens, ‘Can you believe what I am getting?’” (Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life, 2008)

-President Trump “would believe very strongly in extreme military strength. He wouldn’t trust anyone. He wouldn’t trust the Russians; he wouldn’t trust our allies; he’d have a huge military arsenal, perfect it, understand it.” (Playboy, March 1990)

-“Everything in life to me is a psychological game, a series of challenges you either meet or don’t.” (Playboy, March 1990)

-“I don’t want to be President. I’m 100 percent sure. I’d change my mind only if I saw this country continue to go down the tubes.” (Playboy, March 1990)

-“For many years I’ve said that if someone screws you, screw them back. When somebody hurts you, just go after them as viciously and as violently as you can.” (How to Get Rich, 2004)

“I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I’m after.” (The Art of the Deal, 1987)

“I don’t like to lose.” (New York Times, Aug. 7, 1983)

“I’ll do nearly anything within legal bounds to win.” (The Art of the Deal, 1987)

-“I’m a guy who lies awake at night and thinks and plots.” (New York magazine, Nov. 9, 1992)

  1. The country needs a true Constitutionalist. Grover Cleveland, who I believe was the last “Tea Party” president, is what we need now. He was a Democrat, btw…

  2. I think “Silent Cal” may have been the latest true constitutionalist as president:

    “Our government rests upon religion. It is from that source that we derive our reverence for truth and justice, for equality and liberality, and for the rights of mankind. Unless the people believe in these principles they cannot believe in our government. There are only two main theories of government in our world. One rests on righteousness and the other on force. One appeals to reason, and the other appeals to the sword. One is exemplified in the republic, the other is represented by despotism.

    The government of a country never gets ahead of the religion of a country. There is no way by which we can substitute the authority of law for the virtue of man. Of course we endeavor to restrain the vicious, and furnish a fair degree of security and protection by legislation and police control, but the real reform which society in these days is seeking will come as a result of our religious convictions, or they will not come at all. Peace, justice, humanity, charity—these cannot be legislated into being. They are the result of divine grace.”
    ― Calvin Coolidge

    “It is difficult for men in high office to avoid the malady of self-delusion. They are always surrounded by worshipers. They are constantly, and for the most part sincerely, assured of their greatness. They live in an artificial atmosphere of adulation and exaltation which sooner or later impairs their judgment. They are in grave danger of becoming careless and arrogant.”
    ― Calvin Coolidge

  3. We’re going to need Trump’s warrior spirit in the WH. Many will not like his “don’t let anyone push you around” sensibilities, but that’s because we all have, to greater or lesser degrees, become PC wimps.

    I know that Cruz’s response to Kelly on illegal immigration made him sound like he was evading her question and at first I was disappointed by it. And his ‘bipartisan’ gambit was hard to take, but he’s too smart and too tough to actually fall back on seeking approval from the opposition. He’s proven that over and over again on the floor of the senate. I’m hoping his moderated response was simply recognizing that there’s an end game and there has to be some way to not look totally scary to those D’s who will be persuaded by his apparent reasonable-ness. I think he knows that there’s not much about immigration that he and his ‘Rat oppo is going to agree on. Because although the average ‘Rat won’t say so, a lot of them will be voting Republican next year.

  4. This isn’t the first time Kelly’s gone after Cruz. She’s a VB of a journalist. I believe this is why Trump constantly slams her on Social Media. She’s a lot less likely to come after him with a hit piece if he keeps her on her heals and controls the narrative.

  5. Cruz, like all of them, and he was my top pick for over a year, has had his lows. Like these.\,

    Mark Zuckerberg’s personal Senator, Sen. Marco Rubio has a bill to triple H-1Bs that would decimate women and minorities.”

    Cruz is on board with those massive increases too:

    Sen. Cruz Amendment to Immigration Legislation to SUBSTANTIALLY Increase H-1B Visas


    AND Cruz is onboard with mass legalization of the foreign invaders JUST LIKE RUBIO:

    Ted Cruz introduced an amendment to the current immigration bill back in May that would have removed the path to citizenship from the bill completely. But it also supported the same temporary legal status (RPI status) that is already in the bill that Sen. Marco Rubio has been discussing. And even more than that, it also supported permanent legal residency status as well.

    What has not been as evident is what he supports: legal status for millions of people here already, while making it easier for immigrants to come here through the front door.
    Asked about what to do with the people here illegally, however, he stressed that he had never tried to undo the goal of allowing them to stay.
    “The amendment that I introduced removed the path to citizenship, but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of Eight,” he said during a recent visit to El Paso. Cruz also noted that he had not called for deportation or, as Mitt Romney famously advocated, self-deportation.
    Ted Cruz, Mr. Conservative, also supported legalization in the form of work permits as recently as 2013? How can Ted Cruz be the “anti-amnesty” candidate in the field when his position — at least as of two years ago — is basically indistinguishable from Walker’s and (gasp) Jeb Bush’s?
    Sarlin went to Team Cruz with a question. Does he still support work permits for illegals or, like Walker, has he shifted further to the right just in time for the GOP primaries? Answer: Yep, he’s still on the legalization express.
    campaign spokeswoman Catherine Frazier said that the senator has been “consistent” and confirmed that the views he expressed in the Tribune had not changed.

    If Amnesty Wins, Blame Cruz

    these moves have helped Cruz’ presidential ambitions. Big GOP Donors, who almost unanimously favor amnesty, are sophisticated enough to know the difference between fighting 100% against it and going through the motions. They will remember and reward Cruz’s restraint. And he’s rising in the polls–the grassroots have been galvanized by Cruz’s Obamacare fight as surely as they could have been galvanized by a high-profile Cruz immigration fight


    Asked about what to do with the people here illegally, however, he stressed that he had never tried to undo the goal of allowing them to stay.

    ‘The amendment that I introduced removed the path to citizenship, but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of Eight,’ he said during a recent visit to El Paso” [Emphasis added]

    Legalization-without-citizenship isn’t the position of anti-amnesty types. It’s the cutting edge position of pro-amnesty Republicans who are trying to sneak a lowest-common-denominator bill through the Republican House, knowing that once illegals are legalized citizenship can always be added later (or obtained through other, already-existing channels). Pro-amnesty journalists are even now going public with discussions of how to relax the citizenship demand.

    Cruz isn’t in opposition to Karl Rove on this one. He’s saying what Rove’s side wants to hear. He even defies logic in a way familiar to observers of pro-amnesty agitation–claiming that he opposes citizenship because the prospect of getting it “perpetuates illegal crossings.” As if the prospect of getting legal status–status that enables you to freely work and travel in the U.S. and lets your children be citizens–doesn’t make illegal crossing attractive.

    True, Cruz has talked about the need to “secure the borders first.” He even started a website called http://www.securebordersnow.com. But the promoters of the non-citizenship version of amnesty also talk about securing the border first–it just turns out that they probably only mean Congress has to pass a border bill before it passes a legalization bill.

    Doesn’t Cruz mean the borders have to actually be secured? That’s what I thought, especially after hearing this speech, where Cruz makes all sorts of won’t-get-fooled-again noises and talks about how different the immigration conversation will look “once the borders are secure and we’ve managed to stop illegal immigration.”

    But then I went and read the actual words of Cruz’s online petition, which says only that

    any immigration reform must lead with real border security first

    [Emphasis on weasel words added.] Call me paranoid, but I now suspect there’s not really any difference between Cruz and the quietly pro-amnesty Boehner-camp position, as recently outlined by Rep. Goodlatte. Cruz won’t insist on securing the borders (and waiting to make sure) before he takes up legalization. He’s willing to support a bill that starts (“leads”) with an enforcement provision and ends with an amnesty provision, as long as the amnesty stops short of granting citizenship. That will come as a surprise to the Tea Partiers who’ve heard his rousing speeches.

    In short, Cruz is (1) bamboozling the base on amnesty while (2) he gooses them on defunding Obamacare. In the course of (1) he appears to make the sort of gross political misjudgment familiar to followers of (2). For example, according to the NYT‘s story,

    Mr. Cruz said the Obama administration and partisan Democrats would not yield on the citizenship requirement ….

    He’s wrong. Of course Democrats will yield on the citizenship requirement (if that’s the path to a path to legalization). In the Obamacare fight, Cruz has talked as if he might somehow force Democrats to abandon their achievement. He’s wrong! He goaded House GOPs to defund the program, then seemed to throw up his hands and said the Senate was a lost cause. On immigration, he threw up his hands in the Senate and left the fight for the House. I sense a pattern–in which Cruz attracts publicity but avoids victory, and then positions himself to blame others.

    Now this isn’t a Cruz slam, I’m just pointing out some facts & suspicions, he is a fabulous American but he’s a politician. All I’m saying is maybe we should try someone that’s played the game but wasn’t in it, so to speak.

    And Trump has every right to be egotistical, He’s actually accomplished some pretty cool things. Obama, OTOH, never talks about what he’s accomplished in the past because he hasn’t done shit.

  6. That’s pretty much the way I was thinking in 1987 when Reagan was in his 7th year as President. Good times!

  7. I think it hilarious that Politico thinks these quotes will harm Trump.
    Politico has their heads so far up the establishment’s ass they cannot hear or understand a populist uprising.
    I’m no Trump man but I’m not as stupid as Politico, supposedly an organization with some sense.
    Gomer and Forrest could do a better editorial job than John and Jim.
    I’m honestly starting to wonder if Megan and Roger are falling on their swords.

    “The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.”- Oscar Wilde

    Land O Goshen, they sure are talkin’ bout that swashbuckling Yankee billionaire with the bad hair and contrary way of talkin’.

  8. So the useful idiots in the media are up to their usual tricks. So what. To be expected and it will get much worse. Normaly they have a controlled, calculated, and coordinated campaign of destruction.

    It’s clearly different with Tromp. They are themselves very worried about Tromp, they fear him, and they are exploding with anger and emotion rather than condescension and mockery. Usually they just roll out their hit pieces and snicker and back slap each other. Lately, not so much.

    That’s a good sign. Trump circumvents all of their hit pieces and neutralises them way before they attack. He says he’s filthy rich. He says loves gorgeous women, he says he paid off politicians, He says Rosie donkey is a slob, he intentionally bashes Foxy Kelly, and the public laughs. Why? When people hear it from him and are not offended the gotcha media pieces are old news. They heard it already, know it already, and are not offended.

    Trump works all of his supposed “negatives” very casually into his talks every time he speaks. Listen to him, he is a master at it. Aside from his political stuff, the man is so much sharper and confidence than anyone else out there. He is brilliant beyond the hat he is even credits d for. I very seriously doubt there will be any bombshell hit piece done by them that is effective. They have a problem.on their hands.

  9. Setting aside the demons that may secretly vote for Tromp, I think a big part of his calculations is getting disheartened, normal, average Americans that have given up on voting back to the polls.

    Joe six pack has an actual reason to vote this time around. The old ” ahhh….. it makes no difference who wins, they are all the same” is out the window. Tromp is offering a clear choice, no blurry lines.

    I think he will do exactly what Obama did with black turnout. He had it sewed up but he increased the volume in turnout which made a difference. Tromp will do the same.

  10. Some people are still “shocked!” that many Americans would rather align with

    a narcissistic blowhard who loves America
    after having a President who is
    a narcissistic blowhard who hates America.

  11. My favorites (including those you printed):

    10. “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” (Twitter, Nov. 6, 2012)

    35. “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?” (Twitter, April 16, 2015)

    69. “I see the values of this country in the way crime is tolerated, where the people are virtually afraid to say, ‘I want the death penalty.’ Well, I want it. Where has this country gone when you’re not supposed to put in a grave the son of a bitch who robbed, beat, murdered and threw a 90-year-old woman off the building?” (Playboy, March 1990)

    76. “I’m really rich.” (New York City, June 16, 2015)

    123. “Karl Rove is a total loser.” (Twitter, Feb. 7, 2013)

    152. “I can never apologize for the truth.” (Fox News, July 5, 2015)

  12. The blithering idiots still haven’t figured it out. We hate Obama, DemoRATS, GOPe, amnesty pimps, corrupt Media, C of C warts, RINO-DINO’s, worthless, greedy and incompetent consultants, Bush and the Clintons far, far more than we love Trump! But, we will take him over and above all those establishment anti-Americans who want to be the permanent, greedy and very corrupt ruling class.

  13. Ramos should be held up as the poster child for the difference in social grace and acceptable manners between our two….lands.

  14. So does every single candidate on the ballot. There will never be tax reform no matter what every politician says or promises.
    Trump has my vote just to see a wall built and hear his State of the Union Address.
    If Trump wins, it means America is turning to an egotistical blowhard who loves America. It’s the response to being ruled for 8 years by an egotistical blowhard who hates America.
