Too late for Donald Trump to rescind his Clinton Foundation donations from past years. Whoopsie daisy Donny boy!

I am confused. If Trump is trying to concede the bigot vote to Clinton, then who does he have waiting in the wings to replace his ex backers? Why, all the minorities! 95 percent will back Trump, no questions asked.
Kudos to the audience at the Trump event that, when given a stand and shout survey, more people said they prefer letting the illegals stay. Back atcha, Don.

Go with dry social commentary like London 2012: Fleet footed super cool biz office workers in franctic rush hour setting race around picking up their dry cleaning and bento dinners. Instead of rehashing the battles of old, have a modern slapdown between a drunk oyaji and youthful train station staffer. Projection mapping could show us U Turn Rush with a thousand performers getting into the world's biggest onsen.

Amazing that these swimmers had to engage US embassy staff in a situation of their own drunken making.
Why not just pee behind the gas station in the first place, without breaking down doors, punching a sign (Lochte), and throwing around hush money when confronted by the guard and gas station owner.
Did the dummies really think Brazil is so backwards that it hasn't gotten around to installing security cameras that would disprove their whole bogus fairy tale?

@BurakuminDes, isn't Bolt's heir apparent Canadian silver medalist De Grasse (the guy who challenged Bolt in the prelims and earned a finger wag)? He seems young enough to keep getting faster if he avoids injury, doping, partying, breaking down gas station bathroom doors, etc.

If I'm not mistaken, the majority of the women who won medals are associated with the Yoshida family dojo. Their success is probably more important for the gym than one more gold for the founder's daughter. It shows she can be a viable trainer after retiring.

@katsu, Trump has his staff to print out dozens of news articles every day that he pores over with highlighter markers. I wonder which media sources his staff gives him most of the time? Do you think it is a good sign that he only has one election office open in swing states like Florida, and not the dozens that other leading candidates had in past elections?

The media says Trump's words matter, but Trump has other plans. Anytime he is taken seriously, he says "Suck it everyone, I was being SNARKASSTIC!"
Whaddabout, howzabout, yadda yadda. Getting cramps from Trump brand word (taco) salad yet, Republicans?
TorafusuTorasanAug. 13, 2016 - 10:42AM JST
Hmmm, so the GOP's plan is to plead for Wikileaks or other illegal hackers to save their bacon. All that party of law and order posturing was sarcasm or lies?
TorafusuTorasanAug. 13, 2016 - 09:46AM JST
Er, Bass old pal, you do know that Trump is merely being sarcastic when he rants against the elites, the rigged election, and all that noise. You don't believe that mainstream media companies sold his books, created his TV programs? And you claim to have insight as a media industry figure yourself?
TorafusuTorasanAug. 13, 2016 - 09:23AM JST
Trump's supporters must be watching Saturday morning cartoons as a first step on their 'return to reality.' The hardcore holdouts may be busy fortifying their jungle hideouts.
TorafusuTorasanAug. 13, 2016 - 08:57AM JST
Here's a conundrum for the five Trump fans on JT. How can we tell if it was real sarcasm, and not a cynical excuse to get away with immature, indefensible ideas?
TorafusuTorasanAug. 09, 2016 - 01:49PM JST
@toshiko, George P. Bush, one of the affectionately nicknamed 'little brown ones' by his granddad GHW Bush, is probably thinking that supporting Trump will pay off in a promotion to national office under Trump. Not helping himself in the land of Cruz though.

Trump is not getting much of any coherent message out. Muslim gold star parents bad, but in a good way! Bad Mexicans, you make good taco salad! Naughty Russians, come and help me hack my opponent's emails!
@MarkG, you are getting too literal with the word temperament. It is just a nice PC way for Susan Collins to tell her own party that the candidate this time around sucks balls and she will help him lose.
TorafusuTorasanAug. 09, 2016 - 10:21AM JST
@MarkG, no need to ask someone named plasticmonkey when you can get testimony from the very top. Senator Susan Collins, GOP from Maine, has joined the anti Trump brigade listing three specific incidents that showed her Trump lacks temperament and self-control for the job. For every top politician from his own party that he loses, is Trump picking up new supporters elsewhere? Only one state politician went to Trump's rally in Green Bay last week because he is political kryptonite.

Amazing that he is getting $3 or 4 million per month the rest of this season and all of next season to be a roving instructor. That is about 10 times more than some active veteran players like Ichiro. Maybe the Yankees figure it evens out since they didn't have to pay him 20 or 25 million during his full season suspension in 2013.

Trump has an amazing new performance planned where he acts like the corporate suits in Miracle on 34th Street and fires Santa Claus while wearing his shiny new Purple Heart badge. The centerpiece of his speeches will be coaching minors on the best way to call out 'bitch.' He may also introduce his cabinet picks, surprising everyone by bringing out the surviving members of Monty Python.

Kids these days have too much free time in the summer. Someone should spend a minute teaching their kid to yell 'Get that pathetic adult crybaby out of here' and see how Trump responds when he hears that. Put a quivering bowl of jello on stage for a visual comparison.

TorafusuTorasanAug. 03, 2016 - 09:11AM JST
Nah Bass, the context was that Trump first ad libbed about how much he loves babies and wanted the crying kid to stay, then the next minute says 'get the baby out of here' in the same tone as when he is facing hardcore protests. I guess he was feeling tough after getting his honorary purple heart. The point is he let one baby take over his speech for a couple minutes.
Oh well, on to Green Bay where a small enclave of Trump supporters await. Most of Wisconsin's GOP backed Cruz and I don't see Trump trying to embrace them. Maybe more attacks on crying kids--a good trend?
TorafusuTorasanAug. 03, 2016 - 08:42AM JST
Trump is crumbling in front of us. Saying 'Get that crying baby out of here' at his latest rally borders on child abuse.
He is also withholding his support in the Paul Ryan primary next week, nursing a personal grudge against a perceived rival who happens to be a leader of Trump's own party. Looks like it will be one more week Trump can't turn his attacks from the GOP.
