What comes to M Bloomberg any idea why he hates Trump so much these days? I remember one of the first seasons of The Apprentice show, One episode the winning team's prize was meeting with that old goat and they seemed to have ok relationship at the time. Any insight when that changed?

The Dems are sorely lacking a strong candidate. Bernie would be great because he has extreme support - if he moderated some of his proposed policies to appeal to a wider audience he would very good. His best move IMHO would be to shift his brand from being a revolutionary to a transitory force.


I like a lot of Bernie's stances/ideas (not all - I don't see the point of increasing the minimum wage, as it just drives inflation), but think for him (or anyone else really solely focused on the middle and lower class) to have a chance, they'll need to appeal to big business and the wealthy on at least some level. The big corporations and the 1% that he is against unfortunately have too much clout and lobbying power, and can affect an election.

@cameronfen go read the wikileaks filings on Hillary's emails around the Libya war period if you want to inform yourself.

You may be right that Hillary did something criminal, but I dont have the interest to dig through wikileaks data (investing is more important:)).  That being said, if out of all people the Trump justice department is not investigating her, I think it's likely the mistakes she made can be attributed to ignorance and not malice.

Trump has been guilty of cheating on his wife multiple times.  Hiding campaign contributions to pay off mistresses which is a felony.  Hits on his daughter.  Working with people with ties to the mob and Russian govt.   Asked Russia to hack Hillary's email when he likely had back channels that knew Russia was supporting him and willing to subvert US intersts.  Called Mexicans rapists, shithole country thing.  Moral equivalency between white nationalists and counterprotesters even after a white nationalist killed a counter protestor.  Lies 1000s of times during his presidency even when everyone knew he was lying (size of innagartion for example).  Consistently stiffing people who work for him.  Inflating assets for loans and deflating assets for taxes (although no proof he did anything illegal).  Faking bone spurs so he would not be drafted while insulting generals, veterans and families of dead soldiers.  Taunted rogue nuclear states with unstable leaders.  Doesnt do any work as president (executive time).  Cant function without people stroking his ego every 2 seconds (those videos of the cabinet praising him before meetings like we are some banana republic).
 

How about fraudboy who couldn't even deliver legitimate birth certificate?

More evidence that fraudboy was actually born in Kenya.

It was only a few months after his presidential candidacy was announced that his Kenyan “birthplace” became Hawaiian to confirm his eligibility for office.

Except that you don't have to be born in the United States to be eligible to run for President of the United States.  Just ask Ted Cruz, George Romney and John McCain.

(and, of course, an internet archive of a literary agent's bio page is possibly less definitive than a decade of Republican investigation trying to find anything that would hurt Barack Obama.  Kind of reminds me of the multiple investigations into Hillary Clinton that didn't find anything indictable...  If you want to criticize them on drone strikes or policy, that seems more likely to lead to success)
