How is he deceiving anyone? You guys are down to the point of examining every single speech and movement that he makes. Now we have a whole topic because Trump uttered a profanity.

You should be much more worried about candidates who are taking huge amounts of money from PACs, Banks, etc and holding secret fundraisers with them all while refusing to talk about it.

Maybe it's just me. I spent years of active duty in the military (before they turned the service into a gentler, kinder force) and I heard every conceivable foul word that you can imagine. I'm just used to it. I guess context is everything. And Trump's assessment is still accurate: Cruz is a pu$$y.
Perhaps Cruz will go the 'eye for an eye' route and assess Trump?

If Donny wants the gloves off everybody oughta take 'em off.

It'd be fun watching Mr. 'I can say what I want but don't you dare talk bad about me' sing the blues.

He (Trump) has admitted that this is an act that he plans on changing once elected. He seems to know what to say to keep in the headlines. Nobody is talking about the other candidates (except Rubio yesterday). This is Trump's way of staying on the front page. I'm not a fan of his, but you've got to give him (or his handlers/advisers) credit.

I imagine there are voters completely put off by him (like you and me), but he never had a chance with them in the first place.

BTW, if I used a lot of the profane language that Trump used during my military career, I'd be relieved of duty and up for sexual harassment.

Actually that proves my point, Obama wasn't worthy of the office either. When he said, "My grandmother, a typical white person,....", that was all I needed to know about his mentality. Trump is just as much of a lowlife.

I never saw Obama giving Hillary the finger but I'm not surprised he did so. NYC's Mayor Bloomberg at the time Obama took office had a meeting with him at the White House, and later said Obama was the most arrogant man he had ever met. That's saying something considering all the people Bloomberg had to deal with as mayor of such a large city.

Trump has no class, Cruz does, and Cruz actually has detailed plans as opposed to Trump who just proclaims, "We are going to win, win, win". Trump's a joke, albeit entertaining, and I hope enough voters realize it before giving their vote to him.

Question is though, will he be able to change after elected or will he remain a loud and foul-mouthed bully? I'm surprised so many people are falling for him.

I was in the military also so know what you mean. We knew who we could use profanity around and who we couldn't.

For one, I don't believe he'll deport most of those here illegally. He'll blame Congress by saying, "Well, this is the best deal I could get out of Congress", and he'd get his wall built while illegals will be legalized.

Trump doesn't need anyone else's money, but if he did I doubt he'd turn it down.

Exactly. I'd think being in front of thousands of people and on national TV, you'd censor yourself. Whispering in the ear of the president as Biden did and picked up on sensitive microphone is very different than blatantly using profanity as Trump does.

But, all those supporters would be disappointed if he changed. That isn't the trump they want.

He already did. He shutdown a PAC that had been opened for him.

Facts are much better than opinion.

They don't care.

There are much more important matters at hand. They are more worried about putting food on their family's table, bringing their kids home from pointless war, and losing their homes, savings and retirement because of wall street games.

When we get to the point where Trump is saying these sorts of things, then it's time to worry.

Bill Clinton on being Presidential.

i.e. Yet another double standard that Trump is held to.
