Ben Carson to endorse Donald Trump,

Reports also say that Trump is negotiating a payoff to Al Sharpton for his endorsement.

Did anyone see this?

With that tone I'm surprised he didn't kick Christie in the ass as he walked off. Christie is supposed to be the hyper aggressive gorilla in the room and Trump just talks down to him like a confused little boy.

"You know, when he says he went after his mother and wanted to hit her in the head with a hammer, that bothers me. I mean, that's pretty bad," Trump said on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront," adding that Carson described his temper as "pathological" in his book.

"I'm not saying anything other than pathological is a very serious disease. And he said he's pathological, somebody said he has pathological disease," Trump said.

"It's in the book that he's got a pathological temper," Trump continued. "That's a big problem because you don't cure that."

Trump then offered the example of a child molester.

"You don't cure these people. You don't cure a child molester. There's no cure for it. Pathological, there's no cure for that," he said.

Well good, that should kill off any lingering respect anyone had for Ben Carson.

Or increase it....


I was talking to a coworker yesterday, who is a Trump supporter.  He proceeded to refer to all the remaining candidates in the race as RINOs.

Trump bothers me in the same way Obama did.  They're essentially winning on a cult of personality and a slogan.  How can Trump be a true Republican and the rest be RINOs?  Trump has only been a Republican for the past 6 months, and he supports things like single-payer healthcare.

He also gave Rahm Emanual $50k for his mayoral race.  So what?

His anwser to Larry was "I am a republican because i believe in certain principles of the Republican Party"
that being said I beilieve he is most centrist of the Republcan candidates, I'd say even closer to Hillary than to othe Rep. candidates, still to say he is Republican for last 6months is false.

I stand corrected on the time, but I would define a Republican as "a member of the Republican Party."  As you can see, Trump has jumped from party to party most of his life.

 

Trump's party affiliation has changed over the years. Until 1987, he was a Democrat;[3] then he was a Republican from 1987 to 1999.[2] He then switched to the Reform Party from 1999 to 2001.[2] After a presidential exploratory campaign with the Reform Party, he wrote an OpEd in the New York Times stating that he was leaving the Reform Party because of the involvement of "David Duke, Pat Buchanan and Lenora Fulani. That is not company I wish to keep."[201] From 2001 to 2009 he was a Democrat again;[2] he switched to the Republican Party again from 2009 to 2011.[2] An independent from 2011 to 2012, he returned to the Republican Party in 2012, where he has remained.[2]

FLM I know you don't post here often anymore so I might have missed it. I am curious if you like any of the current crop running?
