It was not loopholes--it was tax evasion. Let the little guys pay for the highways--Trump would prefer to spend his money on himself and his women.

Trump supporters are now defending criminal and general sleazy activity as being ok.

Sincerely? They don't give tv shows to people with issues? What about the duck hunter guys? What about the fat kid? What about the breeder people? what about the kardashians? I guess some people believe that people who get reality tv shows must be high class individuals. Reality tv shows' bread and butter is the creepiness involved.

As I said before, I bet lots of people thought trump was racist, for years on end, he just wasn't running for prez.

Methinks there is a bit of pretense going on here.....
No pretense - when trump had a tv show, he could be avoided. Simply didn't watch it, as the commercials for it were a major turn-off. His talk and behavior over the last several months have made it clear what a slime bucket he is, so, yeah, a lot of people were shocked by it because they simply hadn't had to deal with him and his in-your-face antics until now.

It may be hard to believe that lots of people actually never heard of him or didn't give him much thought until he took over the airwaves 24/7 - I guess the universe just didn't revolve around him until recently.

Lets be completely honest here. There are only two types of people that say Trump is a racist. The ones that know he isn't, but lie about it to attack Trump, and the low information people that are completely misinformed.

I haven't read all of the posts, but after a quick scan, I think most people are missing the point. IT'S NOT ABOUT TRUMP!!!!!!! This is an anti establishment movement, the politicians fear it and the main stream media embraces it and exploits the drama of it. If Trump has accomplished anything to this point, it's to expose the filth and corruption of the election process, that even as absurd as it can be spun, it will be fed to the American public, nothing is too outrageous. The challenge isn't in getting Trump elected as much as to keep the movement alive and attract candidates who want to serve their country and not their party.

There is a third kind of person - the ones who were victims of his racist rental policies. They knew he was a racist way back then...

and a fourth kind of 'person' - the government entities who charged him with discrimination due to, what else? - race....

and, quite probably a fifth kind of person - those who knew him in some capacity because of business or personal dealings, and may have thought him racist, again, loooonnnnng before he decided to run for prez. Betcha there were a few who said to themselves "what a racist, self-obsessed jerk that trump guy is!".

and, a sixth kind of person - those who, as another poster said, believe that he may not be a racist himself, but that he is certainly pandering to racists.

and, a seventh kind of person - those who have read and seen trump in action over these many months, and who believe that the large amount of information they have received, including his own words and actions, is not mis-information, and points to the very real possibility that trump is a racist.

It is pretty difficult at this point to say that there is only 'low information' available regarding trump'. There is also a lot of information coming directly from him, that couldn't be labeled 'misinformation' (well, actually, there is the lying that he does, but that is being examined in a different thread).

Isn't 'low information' and 'completely misinformed' a bit of a contradiction in terms when used in the same sentence?

LauraC, add both his and Hillary's association with community organizer Saul Alinsky. They both studied under him and Alinsky wanted Hillary to come on board with him. Hillary and Alinsky was so close they called Hillary Saul's daughter. Of course they'll ignore what Alinsky was all about.

We had a business of 20+ years, and the most conservative, straight arrow accountant that was ever born, but we still used each and every gray area to our advantage. Only stupid people don't.
Yep EVERYONE... including all leftist politicians use the tax code to keep more of their money. And yes, only stupid people don't.

But look at Hillary, being ever so dishonest as if she doesn't take every deduction available to her.

I respectfully disagree.

Trump will not be elected our next POTUS.

He is a clown, a buffoon, an egotistical bully. There is nothing "presidential" about him.

As a Democrat I have been cheering him on the sidelines because I knew he would be an easy target for the Democrats to demolish. I was more concerned about Rubio and Kasich.

November will be a sweet month for me and I will be enjoying the schadenfreude thoroughly!!!
