      Yeah, while Lincoln rolls over in his grave. But, seriously, there is no comparison between mid-nineteenth century Republicans and the party of Trump. Time for them to face up, they built the party of Trump.

    Jennifer Lawrence & Shailene Woodley got more opportunies after doing Sundance indies than Lupita got after winning the Oscar but I’m sleep.

      They are both given the same types of roles of being wise-cracking, tough-talking, down & out and finally triumphant in the end.

      LAWRENCE & WOODLEY MOVIES? Silver lining play book, Descendants, Joy, Fault in our stars, the Divergent movies,

      …. and the X-Men movies. Which by the way, Hubby & I saw X-Men Apocalypse last weekend, and it was a HOT MESS.

      Alexandra Shipp as’ Storm ‘was UNDER USED, and they literally had her bowing down to ‘Mystique,’ Jennifer Lawrence’s character. And she Lawrence literally slept walked through he movie. Nothing but a whole lot of destruction.

      LUPITA MOVIES, since winning the Oscars? Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Non stop and a voice over in Jungle Book

      Best part about going to the movie? taking my own organic popcorn smothered with REAL Land-O-Lakes BUTTER!

    The Fix
    Jake Tapper asked Donald Trump if his judge attack was racist — then followed up 23 times

    By Callum Borchers
    June 3

    There’s persistent … and then there’s Jake Tapper.

    The CNN anchor posed the following question to Donald Trump on Friday:

    Let me ask you about comments you made about the judge in the Trump University case. You said that you thought it was a conflict of interest that he was the judge because he is of Mexican heritage, even though he is from Indiana. Hillary Clinton said that that is a racist attack on a federal judge.

    Actually, Tapper didn’t quite get to form a question. Trump interjected to talk about Clinton’s emails. So Tapper tried to steer the conversation back to whether Trump’s complaint about U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel was racist. Trump deflected again. Tapper tried again. And again.

    In all, Tapper made an astounding 23 follow-up attempts. This moment right here — with this look on Tapper’s face — perfectly encapsulates the exchange.

    Trump vows not to change — which means everyone else in politics has to

    By Karen Tumulty

    There are reasons to be skeptical that the wall on the border would ever be built. Putting a ban on Muslims entering the country seems neither practical nor constitutional.

    But Donald Trump has finally made one three-word campaign promise that voters may be able to count on.

    “I’m not changing,” he declared this week.

    Indeed, it is the rest of the political world that is having to adjust.

    If recent days are any indication, the remaining five months of this presidential campaign are likely to be fought entirely on Trump’s terms.

    The celebrity real estate mogul continues to defy predictions — including some of his own — that he will soften his rhetoric and elevate it to a more presidential level as he moves into a general-election campaign.

      This is LAUGHABLE, Senator Corker, since you’re in 100% AGREEMENT with Trump’s thinking and philosophy on life with non white folks!

      I’ll let Rikyrah followup with her Frank Luntz refrain.

        it’s amusing to me. I would ask them TWO questions:

        What POLICY positions of Donald Trump’s do you disagree with…Congressman, Senator, Governor?

        What POLICY positions that he holds that you say are NOT Republican positions.

        Wait for the silence…

        Well then, Congressman, Senator, Governor…if you have NO POLICY differences between you and Donald Trump…then why have any hesitation in supporting him?

        Only thing that would come out of my mouth as a reporter.

    Trump University is a microcosm of Trump’s campaign: Why Clinton is right to call him a dangerous huckster
    Trump’s using his image and marketing savvy to sell a fantasy — the same strategy of the Trump University scam

    Donald Trump’s hucksterism is well-established by now. But the latest revelations about “Trump University” are unusually instructive; they sum up Trump’s shtick about as well as anything could. And the story is gaining traction.

    This week, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman spoke publicly about the investigation into Trump’s counterfeit college. Appearing first on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Schneiderman said “This never was a university. The fraud started with the name of the organization, and you can’t just go around saying this is the George Stephanopolous Law Firm/Hospital/University without actually qualifying and registering, so it was really a fraud from beginning to end.”

    Like his campaign, Trump University was a con job. It was an attempt to prey on the desperate and credulous, people who bought into Trump’s brand and thought they could bring a slice of it home. But they were sold a bill of goods by an unaccredited for-profit institution on the basis of Trump’s celebrity. Indeed, Trump himself, without any interest in the school or its curriculum, used his fame to peddle the product.
