If it's "in the news" it's HIS "topic du jour"

Feb 20, 2016 12:48PM PST
He rants without even thinking about what he's saying or doing.

OR maybe he IS thinking.....If Apple is making headlines...He'll use them to gain more coverage. I should get a piece of that pie...must send him my address.

This Easter, when the country starts thinking about the religious significance...I wonder how he will capitalize on the event. (if he's still in the running)

I wonder how many Americans realize they are being "played".

"topic du jour"
Feb 20, 2016 1:42PM PST

He didn't invent this practice and he's not alone this time either. If you don't listen to all of these candidates on both sides, you'd miss that. For some reason, what Trump does or says is the automatic "topic du jour" among the major news markets. If Americans are being "played" by the Donald, those cards are being "trumped" by the news media. Their desire is to control both candidate and voter.

True dat

But most of them have the good sense not to use an iphone to call for a boycott of iphone use.

He wants others to do it first?

The Donald says...

I use both iPhone & Samsung. If Apple doesn't give info to authorities on the terrorists I'll only be using Samsung until they give info

Since Apple hasn't backed down...I guess the Donald is using Samsung.....Made in South Korea...Not the iphone ...Made in China....

Make America Great Trump....

None...and there won't be any in our lifetime.....Even IF Trump is President.

Ban Apple?......Think about it.

The term "idle threats" comes to mind.

He has a team of lawyers that pass out "idle threats" under his direction.

He's great at making/throwing snowballs...most of which melt and disappear. Then he doesn't want to talk about or even mention them....Obamas birth certificate is a taboo subject now.

"I just don't want to discuss it," the Republican presidential front-runner said on "Meet the Press."

He listed some topics he would prefer talking about and called the birth-certificate question "a long, complex subject that I just don't like talking about, and I won't talk about it."

Questions don't bring enlightenment and never did

Answers do...and here's one I like.

What to Do When You Don’t Like Any of These Candidates? How about

None of the above

Make 'em do it over.

the journalist who just asked HC if she has lied to the American people, and her response was "Well, I try not to"? And she still won in Nevada.......amazing. Are you enlightened by her answer?

Hey, as long
Feb 21, 2016 1:34PM PST

as she 'tries' to not lie, she's AOK in your book......even when she admitted to lying about coming under 'sniper fire' as Sec of State on a trip to Afghanistan. She sure didn't 'try' very hard on that one........

Exactly how were you enlightened? It seems she's doing what her hubby did by 'trying' to find a new definition for what 'is' is..........
