Makes him sound downright presidential compared with the Clintons and Bush's.

Sadly, you view Trump as an outlier when his scumbaggery is pretty routine. It's especially pathetic after watching you and others defend Bill Clinton for years.

Hey, I'd much rather have Clinton in the WH but wow, the hypocrisy from the left an right is just neck deep in idiocy.

Do you think the fact that Trumps grandfather was a pimp/tax evader and his father a member of the KKK has had a negative impact on TRumps moral character?

Something definitely happened during Donald Trumps' formative years for him to end up as screwed up as he is. Perhaps he never was able to please his father, or maybe his mother was distant and not loving. For him to end up as cold, insensitive, vindictive, and immature as he is, there had to be some lessons he was not taught by his family.

I also feel that he learned, probably from his father, to do whatever it took to "win". They didn't care who they hurt, what lies they had to tell, or what amount of cheating it took, just so they came out on top. Donald Trump learned his ruthless ways well, and it has made him a lot of money, but at what cost ? Here he is, a 70 year old man who still is not happy inside his own skin.

I think this is on the money.

Add to that, having raped a young girl with another man, at a club some years ago. When she was finally going to bring the case to trial, she was intimidated to not follow through with it. Then, we all heard how he had thought nothing of putting his hands wherever he wanted, on women he did not know. There was a woman who said after she had experienced his sitting next to her at a club, had found his hand roaming under her skirt. Another woman said he had led her into another room where he began forcing himself upon her. Who knows how many other similar incidents there may have been?

Obama's father was a bigamist. We don't elect the fathers.

Who knows but we have the blue dress when it came to Clinton. That is forgotten though isn't it?

Anyone with a brain knows there is no comparing that incident to Rump's behavior.

On the thought behind the above ^^^^^, we can agree (I believe he's 71 now though).

IMO, Hillary isn't happy inside her own skin either. Perhaps less unhappy than Trump, but still not happy.

IMO, it's sad that with 22 candidates from the two major parties, they were the two who emerged victorious.
