"You know what’s presidential? Using 12 minutes of a campaign rally to criticize a judge who is overseeing civil litigation against your failed “education” venture. And that’s exactly what Donald Trump did in San Diego when he seemingly bored his audience with details about the ongoing case, specifically attacking U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel for being a “hater” and even speculating about what his ethnicity might be."

"The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Candidates hoping to earn a spot as Donald Trump’s running mate are reportedly expected to submit their tax returns to the campaign, even though the presumptive GOP nominee has said he has no immediate plans to make his own taxes public.

NBC’s Katy Tur reported Wednesday that all vice presidential hopefuls would be required to submit their returns as a standard part of the vetting process.

When NBC’s Katy Tur asked a Trump campaign source about the apparent hypocrisy, the source responded, “Trump’s not running for vice president.”

That’s cute, I suppose, but it only reinforces the absurdity of the candidate’s posture. The idea that disclosure and transparency requirements should be tougher for a vice presidential candidate than a presidential candidate is tough to defend."

I have to say, I like this ticket a lot. Both Johnson and Weld are former governors I respect. Both of them being social liberals and fiscal conservatives. Coming from different parts of the country (New Mexico and Massachusetts), this is a strong and balanced ticket and the kind of ticket the GOP should have been fielding for years now, but hasn’t because it turned its back on this part of the party.

"Sure, there are dumb or dogmatic conservatives, just as there are dumb and dogmatic liberals. So let’s avoid those who are dumb and dogmatic, without using politics or faith as a shorthand for mental acuity.

On campuses at this point, illiberalism is led by liberals. The knee-jerk impulse to protest campus speakers from the right has grown so much that even Democrats like Madeleine Albright, the first female secretary of state, have been targeted."

"Which brings me to those of you who say there’s no real difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

That’s just plain wrong. Trump has revealed himself to be a narcissistic, xenophobic, hatemonger who, if elected, would legitimize bigotry, appoint Supreme Court justices with terrible values, and have direct access to the button that could set off a nuclear war."

Well done. Great speech by my former boss.

"To me, this is the great divide in the world today — not between liberal and conservative, rich and poor, or between any one race or creed and all the others, [but] between people who have the courage to listen and those who are convinced that they already know it all."

Manafort's client list: there's a reason the guy running Trump's campaign is called the Torturers' Lobbyist:
- Ukrainian energy tycoon Dimitry Firtash - 2011, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko sued Manafort for helping Firtash hide his ill-gotten millions in offshore real estate investments - 2008, Manafort tried to develop a 65-story Manhattan luxury apartment building with funding from Firtash

- Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska - 2007, set up a private equity partnership with Deripaska in the Cayman Islands, which was supposed to include $19 million of investments; Deripaska sued, says Manafort never invested and won't account for the millions; Deripaska says the millions went into Ukraine ventures - 2006, arranged meetings between Deripaska and Pres. candidate John McCain

A cheat sheet for understanding what Trump's fans are hearing, when you can't figure out what the heck he just said or why they're salivating all over him for it

In sum:
"Trump’s ceiling as a vehicle for white nationalism will depend on the willingness of mainstream voters to take responsibility for his promise to restore white self-governance and his systematic scapegoating of nonwhites.

"By casting himself as a virtuous guardian of white people’s welfare and claiming a “mandate” to be provocative, Trump has gotten further than any similar politician in recent years. Win or lose, as the presumptive Republican nominee for president, he is already more successful than Pat Buchanan or David Duke, which makes him the most prominent Aryan warrior of the modern age."

"U.S. women are paid $3,600 to $4,950 per appearance for their national team, while men receive $6,250 to $17,625, according to the complaint.

Women make 44 percent of what the men earn for making the World Cup team, it says.

That's even though the #1 ranked women's team — winners of the 2015 World Cup and two others — has historically been far more successful than the men, who have never beyond the World Cup quarterfinals since 1930, and are currently ranked at #29."

"Of course, Trump would never take a walk in the dead woods; he’s nature-averse, unless it’s tailored to his tastes. And truth, to a demagogue, is a bark beetle to a thick tree. But if Trump won’t pay a visit to reality, reality may soon pay a visit to him. He acknowledged this in his filing to build a giant sea wall to protect one of his golf courses in Ireland “from global warming and its effects.” Perhaps he’ll get the ocean to pay for it."

While the world burns and gasps, Donald J. Trump is now leading the only major political party in the advanced world to deny climate change.

"We're creating a world of dummies. Angry dummies who feel they have the right, the authority and the need not only to comment on everything, but to make sure their voice is heard above the rest, and to drag down any opposing views through personal attacks, loud repetition and confrontation."

The comments section is rather mind-blowing.
