Donald Trump sees plane, predicts invasion from Mexico. And that is not even the craziest new thing we are learning about the presumptive GOP presidential candidate.

Sure I think it's safe to assume that Trump was joking, but WHY would he make such an inflammatory joke in front of an audience of paint chip eaters who are more than ready to overreact to every conspiracy theory that tumbles out of his tangerine colored maw?

Or did I just answer my own question?

In other Trump news of the weird it appears that the Donald likes to listen to the private phone conversations of his employees.

Courtesy of Buzzfeed: 

At Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach resort he runs as a club for paying guests and celebrities, Donald Trump had a telephone console installed in his bedroom that acted like a switchboard, connecting to every phone extension on the estate, according to six former workers. Several of them said he used that console to eavesdrop on calls involving staff.

Oh yeah, this is one of those times that you hear a rumor about somebody and just KNOW that it's true.

I have absolutely NO problem accepting that Trump spied on his employees and listened to their phone calls.

Speaking of stories that one should take seriously, the same applies to those rape charges recently filed against Trump: 

No outsider can say whether Mr. Trump is innocent or guilty of these new rape charges. But we can look at his record, analyze the court filings here, and make a determination as to credibility - whether the allegations are believable enough for us to take them seriously and investigate them, keeping in mind his denial and reporting new facts as they develop. 

I have done that. And the answer is a clear “yes.” These allegations are credible. They ought not be ignored. Mainstream media, I’m looking at you.

Gee, I can hardly wait until the next time that Trump decides to accuse Bill Clinton of assaulting women.

In other news, which is not quite as stomach churning, but just barely, it appears that we now know who Trump is vetting for his VP slot: 

Donald Trump’s campaign has begun formally vetting possible running mates, with former House speaker Newt Gingrich emerging as the leading candidate, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. But there are more than a half dozen others being discussed as possibilities, according to several people with knowledge of the process. 

Given Trump’s unpredictability, campaign associates caution that the presumptive Republican nominee could still shake up his shortlist. But with little more than two weeks before the start of the Republican National Convention, Gingrich and Christie have been asked to submit documents and are being cast as favorites for the post inside the campaign. Gingrich in particular is the beneficiary of a drumbeat of support from Trump confidants such as Ben Carson.

There are other names being bandied about as well including Joni Ernst, Jeff Sessions, Bob Corker, Mary Fallin, John Thune, and Tom Cotton.

Sarah Palin's name does not seem to be on the list, however since this vetting is being conducted by Arthur B. Culvahouse, the same genius who cleared her as McCain's VP choice in 2008, I guess anything is possible.

At this point it really does not make any difference who Trump chooses to take the trip to the bottom of the icy deaths along with his campaign, as his chances of winning are getting slimmer and slimmer with each passing day.

He's a helluva lot smarter than dRumpf and could do more damage as he is a DC insider... dRumpf is too stupid to know what he doesn't know. Newt however is knowledegable enough about DC to be the next Dick phucking Cheney. The two of them would be an EVIL allainace. FUCK TRUMP. and his stupid ass.

    I just finished watching a half-hour of morning cable news and the hay being made of a chance meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch. And I am disgusted.

    I have watched Secretary Clinton for the past 30 years. I have researched the good she has done. I have researched the alleged “scandals” and accusations lodged — or rumors repeated enough to be accusations — against her.

    Not until today have I marveled at how this woman, who has done so much for this country — for children, for women, for minorities, for veterans, for 9/11 first responders, for LGBT — has found the strength to withstand the massive pile of bricks thrown at her. I marvel that she still cares enough — STILL — to run for president. She doesn’t need the money. She certainly doesn’t need the “power” — she has enough all on her own.

    But somehow — despite efforts by the GOP, conservatives, and men (yes, men!) to tear her down, to slander her name, to break her — she still cares. In her shoes, frankly, I would be tempted to tell America to go hang itself with Trump, buy a place on a nice tropical island and watch it all fall apart.

    But she still cares.

    This is what scares me most about a Hillary Clinton presidency

    ... My biggest concern is not that anything illegal happened in any of these cases. It is that the Clintons have no apparent concern for appearances of impropriety, as long as they believe their actions cannot get them in trouble with the law.

    Given how fragile trust in elite politicians and institutions is today, I believe this blasé attitude about appearances stands to do much more damage than it did in the 1990s.

    Some of the scandals that have surrounded the Clintons over the last 40 years have been invented from whole cloth by political opponents and a hostile media.

    But others have started from real wrongdoing —

      From what I have read, trump likes to collect sensitive information on people and use it to his advantage. The listening on phone conversations makes me think he is paranoid and maybe trying to jump the staff.

      DonTheCon is wise enough not to put Palin anywhere near a voting public so he probably has an appointed position in mind should by some freak accident that he should win.

      He needs her for the 'campaign' because she is a jackass willing to bray nonsense that any decent or respectable person would be too embarrassed to say. He has to reward her with favors and quiet $$$. I'm sure he is behind her sudden rash of tv and game show 'appearances'.

    Hillary Clinton is stronger than most men in our world - especially those in the political atmosphere. Focus needs to be made on the Republicans in the U.S.Congress. They come across as a bunch of impotent, white, do nothing jerks!

    And, hopefully American voters vacate the majority of them in November that are up for reelection.

    Lots of prayers go out in support of Hillary Clinton and the majority of us know she'll make an outstanding POTUS!

    Trump’s One Man Crime Spree Grows Into Felony Illegal Super PAC Coordination

    As he continues to bombard foreign politicians with illegal fundraising emails, there are also indications that Donald Trump is illegally coordinating with his super PAC.
    Josh Marshall at TPM reported on Austrailian MP Tim Watts getting illegal fundraising emails from both Trump and his super PAC:

      "Marshall is correct. The uniqueness of the list combined with the fact that Trump and his super PAC have no money mean that the list came from Trump’s own files. It is highly illegal for Trump to share his email list with his super PAC."

    Hillary Clinton's VP Short List Is Short on Progressives

    ...But as I pointed out in a recent Truthout article, the rumors of Warren as a potential running mate for Clinton are likely just a dog-and-pony show to appease "Warren Wing" progressives and Bernie Sanders' supporters. Clinton and the Democrats would likely be reluctant to rankle their Wall Street allies by choosing such a fierce opponent of the Wall Street lobby, out of fear of losing their constant flow of donations.

    These suspicions were largely confirmed five days later when Politico's Ben White, a veteran Wall Street journalist, interviewed a dozen "major Democratic donors in the financial services industry"and reported that they "despised Warren's attacks on the financial industry," and if "Clinton surprises them and taps Warren, big donations from the industry could vanish." These donors, he added, "saw little chance that Clinton would pick the liberal firebrand as her vice presidential nominee."

    DNC Caught Accepting Money from Union-Busting Companies in New Leak

    A new set of documents leaked by hacker Guccifer 2.0 allegedly shows the Democratic National Committee has no qualms about asking for donations from some of the most evil corporations in America — even the corporations whose values are directly in opposition to the Democratic Party’s stated goals.

    The spreadsheet, which can be viewed in its entirety here, shows that DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others within the DNC contacted several dozen corporate lobbyists to secure donations for the 2016 election cycle, soliciting four, five, and six-figure donations from their clients. The same spreadsheet shows the DNC asking for and receiving large sums of money from labor unions, environmental groups, and other advocates of progressive causes who may have likely given more thought to their donation had they known the DNC was asking their biggest opponents for money as well.

    ...Trump also thought it'd be an excellent idea to hold the convention in an open-air stadium, not unlike the stadium portion of President Obama's 2008 convention. Of course Trump wouldn't come close to being able to fill the venue, but sure. Trump's goal, however, wasn't to match Obama's feat but, instead, to book a venue that'd enable him to ride a helicopter onto the stage.

    No, we're not making that up. Trump wanted to be transported by helicopter into the convention. Personally, I love this idea because it presents very real odds for Trump's ludicrous hair-helmet to unfurl on prime time television. In fact, I'd pay to see this. There's also the added suspense of not knowing whether Trump would be decapitated by the chopper blades.

    Trump also considered lighting off fireworks inside the arena. Again, an event I'd totally support, given how there'd inevitably been scores of Trump supporters wandering around with singed hair and no eyebrows after being struck by spectacularly colorful Chinese-made fire bombs. Sadly, this idea was also scratched.

    Here's an idea. What if we combine the helicopter idea and the fireworks idea. Specifically, what if Trump rode a gigantic bottle-rocket into the arena? On all three nights.
