You are reading page 126 of Donald Trump as GOP hopeful: Take him seriously. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

The idea that Obama race baits and is talking all the time about race is not new in right wing media. So the fact that this campaign manager parroted it, whether the chair for the GOP thought her comments were insane, isn't unusual. Trump is running a campaign mostly based on race baiting.

I did actually watch the Guardian video. It seems that some people are voting for Trump out of desperation. I did enjoy the interview with the former social worker at the church.

I haven't noticed any race baiting by Obama. I fear he is "guilty" of Presidenting while black.

Many will disagree with you. Obama has completely fanned the flames of racism. Encouraged it.

What could he possibly gain by that? Doesn't make sense. However, we'll agree to disagree. You give no examples, but I'm probably sure what you would call "fanning the flames" I would call being real and bringing it up for discussion, calling it like it is. Qualities that seem to be admired in Mr. Trump btw

Billionaire Mark Cuban is going to be sitting in the front row at the first debate. Trump's answer was to speculate that he may have Gennifer Flowers sit next to him.

Typical, low-class move by Trump.

Of course, his campaign staff have reported that she won't be there. Kellyanne Conway is certainly earning her pay.

Why would that be low-class? Hillary wants Trump to be fact-checked, but no mention of being honest enough to have her own facts checked.

To me it's not a mature and Presidential response. Surely a better response would be to ignore it and act like it doesn't bother him. Kind of like when he talked about his penis size...why not let Rubio be the low class one....surely some things don't need to be said. If she's brining him in to get his goat, he doesn't have to take the bait. Let her be the low class one.

To me it's obvious what she's inferring is that she doesn't need to be fact checked during the debate and he does.

Of course many people think she's a liar in everything she does and has done.

it's low class to seat someone her husband had an affair with 20 years ago in order to somehow demonstrate she is unfit to be president.

it would also be low class for Clinton to seat any of the women that Trump had affairs with while he was married.

She can infer all she wants about her own honestly.....it's public record that she has lied many many times.

So why not fact check them during the debates if she's such a liar?

Doesn't matter because regardless if the moderators fact check, the fact checkers will be doing their thing off the scene. If their records on the campaign trail and town halls are any indication, he needs a fact checker more than her. But they both have problems.

If it's done fairly (not a Candy Crowley thing), no problem. But for Hillary of all people, to demand the moderator fact-check Donald is beyond the pale.

What is Trump afraid of when he told a reporter that the debates shouldn't be fact checked? He should have said "bring them on".

You can think it's "beyond the pale" if you have that opinion, however, it's clear that during prior debates and town halls Mr. Trump has beyond beyond the truth which is why he doesn't what fact checkers. What's also clear is that Mrs. Clinton is more accurate and isn't afraid of fact checkers.

However, she's served notice and they both know they need to be accurate with their stats and claims, so perhaps he'll take heed of that and won't have a problem and come out o.k. Hopefully his debate advisors will provide him with accurate stats to back up his claims and plans.

With Hillary's track record of lying, while in office, I honestly do not trust one thing she ever says. That millions think that is not important baffles me.

She's been fact checked on what she says, so if you don't believe it that's your prerogative. Trump has been fact checked too and comes up worse than her. That millions think that is not important with a "yeah he says stupid things...but.." baffles me.
