Of course the crowd loved it. Only more proof that Trump is a misogynist.

This is all Trump has because he cannot speak intelligently to the issues that are destroying the nation.

He is becoming the "The Rent is TOO DAMN HIGH" candidate for the GOP nomination.

Stop including the Tea Party in your assessment of Trump. No Tea Party member would support him and those followers of his that claim to be part of the Tea Party are doing it wrong!

Sarah Palin - supports Trump and blames her son's domestic violence arrest on PTSD and Obama
Ted Nugent - supports Trump and posted on his FB page that the Jews are responsible for gun control.
Stormfront - supports Trump and is a neonazi skinhead group.

I think there is a very different pattern to Trump supporters and it has nothing to do with fighting for a smaller government and a stronger Constitution!

I had the exact same reaction as a female.

I guess my idea of fun doesn't include name calling of an opponent by using a term that is degrading to women.

You realize that families often attend presidential rallies, right? I guess I'm no fun because I don't take my kids to stand up comic shows that are blue.

I don't need my President to entertain me by swearing and bulling other people. I don't see an election as an opportunity for "fun."

Trump/Comacho

I lean more towards the Constitution Party on some issues, some of the same ones I believe Ted Cruz does as well, so no surprise he's my candidate.

Regarding Trump, it was more a case that I wanted to like him considering the issues he talked about initially, but soon figured out he was just trying to get populist support. Between that, his personal insults and bully treatment of other candidates, I can't see myself voting for him. If Cruz doesn't get the nomination I'll vote Constitution Party in November.
I haven't heard of the Constitution Party. I'm not sure they are ever on the ballot here in Texas.

For some reason I can't get behind Cruz, because he goes to that well of social issues that really irritate me in politics. I don't think same-sex marriage should be left up to the states. Either it's discriminatory or it's not. We wouldn't leave interracial marriage up to individual states, so why gay people? I'm not gay, but I do feel that there are legal benefits to marriage such as inheritance laws for people who die without wills, community property rights, hospital visitation rights and health decisions for partners who aren't able to make decisions for themselves. I do not feel those 1-3% of people should be discriminated against in that manner.

To me, that's a constitutional matter. I like him for other things, but not enough to vote for him. He says he won't work with congress, and I'm tired of that mindset. But I understand why That appeals to people.

Perhaps Mike Tyson would be your ideal candidate?

I'm no fan of Trump but I will give him credit for being honest, on this point only. Seems to me they all change when the election is over, at least Donny tells you up front.

If grown ups are going to have temper tantrums, they belong behind closed doors, not on a stage in front of television cameras like Trump does. He can't control himself.

Which proves you have more self control than Trump who doesn't seem to get that the kind of language he's using doesn't belong at large public events that are televised around the world to people of all ages.
