DEADBEAT DONALD’S very bad, absolutely awful, revealingly embarrassing week got worse on Saturday. After someone slipped the New York Times three revealing pages of Trump’s tax returns.

Trying to jump the coming tax headlines with more antics on stage, at a Pennsylvania rally all he could do was rail, whine, and pantomime.

It took Trump nearly 25 minutes to read the brief statement because he kept going off on one angry tangent after another — ignoring his teleprompters and accusing Clinton of not being “loyal” to her husband, imitating her buckling at a memorial service last month, suggesting that she is “crazy” and saying she should be in prison. He urged his mostly white crowd of supporters to go to polling places in “certain areas” on Election Day to “watch” the voters there. He also repeatedly complained about having a “bum mic” at the first presidential debate and wondered if he should have done another season of “The Apprentice.” [Washington Post]


Then Deadbeat Donald went where no one has gone before.

“Hillary Clinton’s only loyalty is to her financial contributors and to herself,” Trump said. “I don’t even think she’s loyal to Bill, if you want to know the truth.”

I laughed out loud at that one. I wouldn’t be surprised if it came straight from Sean Hannity, one of the alt right quacks who’ll say anything at all about Secretary Clinton.

Deadbeat Donald’s been exposed but his fans won’t care. Unfortunately, there still aren’t enough of them to put him into the White House.
