... Hillary Clinton collapsing and being helped into the black van...  

 

Don't worry. It just seems that for a moment, Hillary had some information about her emails. But she's forgotten it now, so everything will be just fine. laughing

The video of Hillary Clinton collapsing and being helped into the black van could be very damaging to her campaign.     She has been diagnosed as having pneumonia but this news was only released after the incident at the 911 ceremony.

 

When Gerald Ford fell down the steps of Air Force One it made him look clumsy but he had bad knees from playing American football & it was something that most Americans would have understood, & totally different to the image that Hillary portrays.

 

Trump  sensibly said he knows nothing about the incident, leaving it to the supporters to post and repost the video to Youtube and elsewhere.

 

This election contest is going to get even closer very soon!

 

 

 

Well as I see it now, it's Con Artist (per Hillary camp) vs Decrepit Liar (per Trump camp) ... only in America, do they not have any other candidates worthy of their Presidency.

Trump now has nearly as many small donors as Hillary Clinton & has raised around $100 million.    Every event he speaks at has a lectern with a number to text.    This has been one method he's been using to connect to his supporters.

 

His team did a clever thing by turning Clinton's 'deplorables' gaffe back on her by using the Les Miserables song of angry men as a rally intro.    Of course they won't want to over do this as love of France is prob. not  huge among his support base!

Clinton's "deplorables" gaffe didn't need Trump to turn it back on her.  It was a serious mistake / own goal on all kinds of levels, from reinforcing/exploiting stereotypes, alienating the uneducated working class, increasing contempt that already exists for the "liberal elite".

 

It does "prove a perception" of how out of touch Clinton (and her advisors) are.

They actually do.  But I'd compare the odds of one of the other candidates coming to power with say, the chances of the Legalise Marijuana Party coming to power in New Zealand.

 

I don't think Trump will end up in power either.  I think even though he's in front, Hilary is still considered the safer choice, even though her health seems to be down the toilet.  I personally feel as if Trump would be the better choice over Hilary, only because I absolutely know Hilary will be more of the same.  Trump might throw a wrench in the establishment's cogs and that would be hilarious.

This is disturbing on so many levels. I think Trump is certainly capable of going off the deep edge but even the Presidency is ringed with checks and balances so there is a reasonable prospect that the world might survive if he wins, but I cannot believe it would be a happy time. 

 

The other side of the question is what kind of President could Hillary possibly be if she can only barely beat someone like Trump? That thought does not fill me with joy either. I actually saw her speaking when she dropped the deplorable bomb. I could not believe my ears. How could she not hear what that sounded like? 

 

I don’t have much faith in her campaign but if anyone there has any brains, they will start pushing Tim Kaine into the spotlight as much as possible. It might undo some of the health scare damage if people have confidence in her replacement.

Outside the area of uncertainty.  It's going to get worse too IMO, the arrest of Ahmad Khan Rahami for the NY bombings falls right in Trump's lap.

Big headlines today about one of Drumph's campaign officials insisting that there was no racism in the 1960s and blacks only have themselves to blame for their problems. If that man actually does get elected, there will be blood in the streets.

When that man gets elected, America will go back to the dark ages and have to rediscover lighting rods and how to treat fellow humans.

Watch the Dalai Lama impersonate Donald Trump

Piers Morgan asked the Dalai Lama what he thought of Donald Trump on the TV show "Good Morning Britain."
His Holiness' response was priceless.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/americas/84626279/Professor-whos-predicted-30-years-of-US-presidential-outcomes-correctly-says-Donald-Trump-will-likely-beat-Hillary-Clinton

 

 

 

 

 

Interesting read.

 

He always predicts the winner, and his system shows its Trump. Actually, its not Trump, its the Republicans. Although he does admit, Trumps outlandish ways may see him lose despite the odds are well in the Republicans favour

 

I guess it comes down to how many Americans who would have voted Republican, will now vote Democrat (Unlikely to be many) or will not vote?

 

if Clinton is seen as same ol, uncharismatic, same question applies. Maybe this anomaly question will occur on both sides and cancel each other out, leaving this guys prediction more valid?

 

Maybe the Americans will see Trump as not having much power, given the US system, and vote Republican, because he cannot single handedly bring in his many stupid ideas. And that he will just be the voice, but controlled by the GOP

 

It may well happen, his predictions are based on many many elections, and its really the American psyche he is looking at.
