Well, I'm for McAfee. :D

I still remember bit and Bill Maher show when Coulter said Trump has best chance to win nomination and audience burts out laughing.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I remember that episode and that clip will be gold if Trump beats Hillary. FWIW, Coulter said that Trump had the best chance of winning the general election, not the nomination.

Trump might not be able to beat Hillary, but if he can't nobody can. there's no way in hell Cruz, who appeals to nobody but hardcore republicans, beats Hillary.

The only two who polls show beating Clinton are Kasich and Rubio. The best possible thing for the GOP would be to run Rubio.

Rubio is an empty suit. I would rather have Hillary tbh

"They" being Sheldon Adelson, Jamie Dimon, and Lloyd Blankfein.

Hitlery's MSM goon squad is determined to make Bernie's Daily News interview into his "Dean Scream".  Read for example Chris Cillizza's piece at WaPo.  The sad part is that Bernie did the damage to himself.  Without any coaching and without thirty-some years in politics I could have answered the "how will you break up the big banks and how will the workers be affected" question ten times better than he did.  That is his signature issue and he absolutely bombed.

He's not running on policy. The only recognizable policy he has is "Build That Wall," and he's not going to roll back on that. He's running on his personality, and that's something he can't change. He's going to continue to be a gigantically arrogant asshole who routinely says stupid shit. A "pivot to the middle" doesn't fix his problems.

this is the video... funny how spot on her comment was about Trump and Sanders;

 

When Ann Coulter is right, the end time is near.

The scariest part of Bernie sanders trying to control economic policy in the United States is he seems to be totally unable to handle his own salary. As a senator who makes 176k a year his net worth is a measly 500k. What the fuck has he been doing with all of his money?

I believe that the financial disclosure numbers don't include retirement accounts, which would make his numbers reasonable if not inspiring for his salary.
