Chan Lowe: Trump takes a tumble


Somewhere in a secret aerie high above the mean streets, Republican money men are relaxing in their high-backed wing chairs and drawing more easily on their Havanas now that The Donald has been cut down to size.

Ever since the appearance of the long form birth certificate a mere fortnight ago, the sands beneath the golden-domed dilettante’s feet have been melting away. Then came the humiliation in front of the nation’s media at the very hands of his nemesis, the pretender to the throne.

Finally, there was the bin Laden tour de force, which permanently discredited any assertion that the occupant of the White House was incompetent.

What’s a self-respecting egomaniac to do when his numbers suddenly plummet from first to fifth place in the polls? Bow out, of course, and make it look like it was his idea from the beginning. God forbid that he should appear to have been driven out. We’re waiting.

Meanwhile, the abovementioned plutocrats can rid the party they control of its clown-like image and get back to the serious business of afflicting the already-afflicted and comforting the already-comfortable.

Once again, all will be right with the world.

Dang it....I had hoped to horse around when Trump threw "his hair into the ring"....
Would have been so much fun....better than a clown, riding a horse at the Rodeo ....too bad Trump got "Bucked-Off" so soon....
Well--Maybe another will take his place....and ride into the sunset.....Stay tuned......

"afflicting the already-afflicted and comforting the already-comfortable"...this is one of my favorite liberal mantras...that conservatives take from the poor to give to the wealthy.

hopefully the RNC will run a true conservative this time. if they do, Obama is a 1 termer & we will own both houses too. if they run the oldest white guy again...Colombia looks better & better

And wouldn't you know, one of the "supermarket crap sheets" is presently running a story in which it's claimed that You Know Who is saying that the aforementioned "long form" birth certificate is a fake (something about the form number not being valid, or some such). As I said in a previous comment, these people will never be happy until...well, I'm not going to repeat it. And it also goes to prove that if you give in to a blackmailer once, you'll keep paying for the rest of your life, or career in this case.

Today’s cartoon is a bit insulting to the horse. I do however like the difference in the addition of the letter “T” to rump. His business mannerisms are possibly namesake destiny. Donald t Rump is a satisfying way to read his name.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to say this, but I'm pretty sure I'm one of the few who actually put thought into my words before typing them: Chan Lowe, you're a bad person. To use a position of power, such as yours, to push an unbelievably slanted agenda, is flat-out wrong. Every single week, you have no qualms with bashing conservatives. It's as if you haven't even given their side a fair shake. Seriously, when have you taken the time to sit and think about their values and issues, and on top of that, when have you asked yourself WHY they think that way? You're a closed door. Closed doors should have absolutely no positions of power. All you're doing is spreading and exacerbating the hateful rhetoric of a political party. You're no better than Fox News, an entity I'm sure makes you sick to your stomach. I'll say it again: Chan Lowe, you're a bad person.
