Head bobbing is a display of energy?

I thought it was indicative of the "yes man" syndrome or a way to appear to be paying close attention while actually being bored or disinterested.

Frankly, I'm of the opinion that neither of the two candidates are thrilling ones. With Trump, it's a matter of fear of the unknown. With Clinton, it's a matter of fear of the already known.

Ya' hear about TheRUMP

Trump took $55,000 of donations to his campaign to buy copies of his own book

Donald Trump, the bestselling book author—and Republican presidential nominee—used campaign donations to purchase copies of his own book.

Trump’s campaign bought $55,055 worth of copies of his newest book Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again from bookstore Barnes and Noble in May, according to a Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing, reported by The Daily Beast. The campaign says it bought the book to be part of a gift bag given to delegates at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, which also included “Make America Great Again” hats, and small plastic fetuses.

The campaign’s choice to buy Crippled America at Barnes and Noble instead of straight from the publisher is unusual. It could be a tactic to inflate book sales, boosting the title’s ranking on bestseller lists.

Trump stated over a year ago
by TONI H / August 25, 2016 6:13 AM PDT

that he had donated to the Clinton foundation twice.......and perhaps it was to get access to hilLIARy when she was a Senator in NYC the first time. AND there is nothing in the visitor logs for her that shows he EVER got or even ASKED for access to her as SoS.

AND there is nothing in his tax returns (since 2009) that shows he gave any money to the Clinton Foundation...

Oh wait....he hasn't released his tax returns.

Everyone else that gives to the Clinton Foundation...Pay-to-play

TheRUMP gives to the Clinton Foundation.....Mr. Nice Guy.

Perhaps he reaped the benefits of his 'donation" .

The wedding was held
by TONI H / August 25, 2016 10:58 AM PDT

in January 2005.....when she was a NY Senator.......so evidently he DID get what he wanted, but he also stated that early in his campaign. "You pay for influence/access"........as a businessman in NY, he KNEW how to play that game in order to get things done, and the Clintons showed up.

Still no record of donations made to the Foundation after 2009, and it doesn't have to show up in HIS taxes....it would show up in the FOUNDATION'S taxes and evidently it hasn't.

So he "paid-to-pay" and when others do it...Call the cops?

He readily admitted that he had done it...
by TONI H / August 25, 2016 1:45 PM PDT

He has stated many times, JP, that as a businessman, he had already been on the other side of the game being played and that's why he knows about it so well and could easily speak up against it and wants it stopped. Honesty? In a 'politician'? Oh my....what a novel idea.

As for calling the cops......Trump wasn't buying access to a SoS and he wasn't a foreign entity looking for 'favors'. And it sure as hell wasn't costing him millions to get her to come to his wedding as a Federal Senator. As far as I can tell, he didn't do anything even remotely illegal in donating what amounted to pocket change to him to her foundation in return for a photo op at a wedding......as far as I can tell, as a Senator she came pretty cheap compared to now.

Trust me.

Since the campaign has begun....TheRUMP has changed his position more times than I have changed my socks.

It's summer up here so socks are optional...NEVER with sandals.

:Honesty?

WHEN was HE being "honest"? THEN or NOW?

IF you don't expect "honesty" from a politician...Don't call Hillary a "liar"
