Harder said all statements suggesting Trump worked as an escort are “100% false, highly damaging to her reputation, and personally hurtful.”

“Outright lying about her in this way exceeds all bounds of appropriate news reporting and human decency,” Harder wrote. 

The campaign who accused Ted Cruz’s father of conspiring with JFK’s murderer is now worried about decency.

The AP examined the social media feeds of more than 50 current and former campaign employees who helped propel Trump through the primary elections. The campaign has employed a mix of veteran political operatives and outsiders. Most come across as dedicated, enthusiastic partisans, but at least seven expressed views that were overtly racially charged, supportive of violent actions or broadly hostile to Muslims.

Trump’s Empire: a Maze of Debts and Opaque Ties – The New York Times

But an investigation by The New York Times into the financial maze of Mr. Trump’s real estate holdings in the United States reveals that companies he owns have at least $650 million in debt — twice the amount than can be gleaned from public filings he has made as part of his bid for the White House. The Times’s inquiry also found that Mr. Trump’s fortunes depend deeply on a wide array of financial backers, including one he has cited in attacks during his campaign.

For example, an office building on Avenue of the Americas in Manhattan, of which Mr. Trump is part owner, carries a $950 million loan. Among the lenders: the Bank of China, one of the largest banks in a country that Mr. Trump has railed against as an economic foe of the United States, and Goldman Sachs, a financial institution he has said controls Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee, after it paid her $675,000 in speaking fees.

Everything is fair game when it comes to Donald Trump because of the bombastic stuff he says while campaigning for president.  That said as much as I loathe the person and the candidate, a business having debt in itself is not a story.  The real story is who owns the debt.

Mr McKinnon is just being a responsible citizen and parent. Someone who thinks they have the luxury to experiment with our form of government, are not only very wrong, they are very selfish.

Important and accurate post from Dave Winer. On top of what he says I saw a few on Twitter discussing something interesting last night. With Pence on the ticket, are the GOP party elite supporting him for one reason? That reason would be to impeach Trump on day one and install Pence as President. Yes this is crazy, and it would undermine the will of the people. Just don’t forget this is the same party that is leaving a seat vacant on the Supreme Court for fully partisan reasons. So they are not that big on institutions anyway, so why not?

Crazy Things People Say…

…a Texas Republican congressman took to Twitter to spread his wisdom, and in his district this will get him more support.  Everyone loves a good Hitler joke, right? RIGHT?
