At least I'm not asking them to pay for it.

networkn: I think that Rikkitic said that tongue in cheek. Trump was (as far as I can tell) serous about building a wall.

Obviously; as if a wall would be enough to keep the Americans out!

I'm more worried about Trumpy's proposed wall. If by a some incredible miracle he does get in and builds The Great Wall of Trump, how will Americans get their South American nose candy? tongue-out

I'm now not worried about Trump at all.  Enjoyed popcorn for breakfast as I read the US news, the polls, watching the slo-mo trainwreck evolve. 
When you just scored the worst own-goal of your life, don't do a victory dance, shout out how great you are, and beat up your own team for letting you down.

Trump's now heading toward fame as the ginger Bill Cosby.

 

Read the US news a couple of hours ago, and two women have accused him of groping.
Checked now - and it's up to three - no wait - it's four, plus a pending statutory rape suit.

Money gives you power. Look at Bill Gates, Made billions now putting it back. Warren Buffet made millions, he is a huge donater. Once you get your homes, yachts and jets, it's a game. Some abuse that game, others give back.

Repeal The 19th Amendment - Trump Supporters Want To Take Away Women's Right To Vote

A new analysis shows that if only women cast ballots in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton would dominate at the polls with a commanding 458 electoral votes over Donald Trump's 80.
If only men voted, Trump would take 350 to Clinton's 188.

So some of the Republican nominee's most ardent supporters began tweeting about repealing the 19th Amendment of the Constitution, which in 1920 gave women the right to vote.

Trump's lawyer has sent a letter to the NYT, demanding they retract the story about the first two complaints.

 

 “Your article is reckless, defamatory and constitutes libel per se. It is apparent from, among other things, the timing of the article, that it is nothing more than a politically motivated effort to defeat Mr Trump’s candidacy,”

 

I don't agree.  It's perfectly rational behaviour for someone who may have been groped long ago by a "celebrity" to not come forward with a complaint sooner, as they'll have quite justified fear about how it will pan out when there's such a huge difference in balance of power,   Rolf Harris, Crosby, a large assortment of priests, numerous other cases, it starts with one voice, then a trickle, then a flood

 

Turning point (stated by one of the first complainants) was seeing Trump on National TV - deny that he was a dirty slug - when everybody had seen damning evidence about how things really worked in the smelly locker-room of his mind.

Yep. Instead of threatening law suit why not do the law suit. Thats the American way. Its far from damage control now. You get what you pay for, and if you are in public there aint no hiding behind your money. Or in the case of Trump, his leveraged loans.

Yeah I understood that, but it was in poor taste (and if I had to guess, slightly serious).

The timing is exceptionally suspicious. 

 

There might be some fact involved, but there is DEFINITELY an element of opportunism in it.

In your opinion.

 

In my opinion, the following is credible:

 

 

When Anderson Cooper asked Trump during the second presidential debate whether Trump had ever groped women in the way he described on the tapes, Trump said, “No, I have not.”

 

All three women who accused Trump of assault said that watching Trump’s denial on TV made them angry, because it so closely mirrored their own experiences — being groped or kissed by Trump suddenly and without consent.
