If that were true Hillary wouldn't be asking everyone and her uncle to fan across the country to campaign for her. She'd be sipping wine at Martha's Vineyard. She isn't there tonight, is she?

When did I say they weren't biased? What does that have to do with anything?

You were presented with a piece of information that indicates Trump isn't necessarily completely aligned with the Truth in everything he says, which is what you implied in post #3. You were presented with a counter example, but rather than address the actual event, you started knocking the source.

So do you actually not believe the Michigan story? And do you actually believe that Trump saying he would win the primary means he is correct when he says he'll win the general?

It's hard to believe HuffPost because they put out so much nonsense that is clickbait stuff.

The article even says they don't know if it happened. So they aren't even calling him a liar..but insinuating it.

Just pretty lame, but it's HuffPost ,so..

Every candidate says they are going to win, including your Queen Hillary..

You're calling Trump a liar? Nah, can't be. If he did, sure wish we had it on video.

Right, but you're the one who is pointing to Trump's correct prediction in the primary as evidence that his prediction about the general will be correct.

I said he was not favored to win, I didn't say anything about Trump's 'correct prediction'...

The media, talking heads, pundits, did NOT favor him.

Read the context of your post. The OP said Trump is predicting victory. The next poster said "He also said he will beat 16 Republicans. Everybody laughed." You responded to that post with the following:

Yes and people seem to forget that too. People have a short memory or selective memory it seems.

Yes Trump could be viewed as bragging or boasting..but he is able to back it up.


Clearly, you were implying that the fact that he was able to correctly predict his primary victory in some way adds legitimacy to his current prediction about winning the general.

Ok I could see how it could be read that way but it wasn't the intention .

I don't even remember him predicting he was going to win . I mean the only reason they run is to win right ?

So do Breitbart and InfoWars. Doesn't stop the Trump supporters from swallowing their nonsense hook, line and sinker.

Trump isn't the first Johnny-on-the-spot populist to seize the nomination in a party that's in deep disarray. Others have done the same in both parties in our past.

The only thing that makes him unique is his complete lack of political credentials or skill. Others who made it as far has he has had held at least some minor political office or other, even if it was just as a committee member of a party's local central committee.

But given the deep division in the Republican party, a split even worse that the one in the Democratic party after it's disastrous 1972 election, when it nominated a populist, it's not surprising someone like Trump would emerge. There's always some white knight or other all mounted up and waiting in the wings to go riding to a party's rescue.
