Even the elevators are turning against Trump. Or is it his security detail?

Courtesy of ABC News:

The Colorado Springs Fire Department says that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had to be rescued from an elevator that was stuck between the first and second floors of a resort. 

In a statement released Saturday, the department says that it was called at 1:30 p.m. Friday to rescue about 10 people, including Trump, trapped inside the elevator at The Mining Exchange, A Wyndham Grand Hotel & Spa resort. 

The department says the firefighters opened the top elevator hatch and lowered a ladder into the elevator. Trump and the others used the ladder to climb out of the elevator to the second floor. The department says no injuries were reported.

I don't usually like to take joy in the suffering of anybody else, but I have to admit that I am taking a little joy here.

Just the image of Trump having to haul his huge ass up a ladder to get out of a contained space with nine other people is an image that I find quite enjoyable.

Made even more so by the fact that this was NOT a mechanical failure.

Trump's security team was given control of the hotel's elevators during the event, said Perry Sanders Jr., an attorney who co-owns the hotel. 

"The party were model guests but security insisted on having manual control of the elevators," Sanders said. 

After the occupants were rescued, technicians for the company that services the elevator determined that the machine became stuck because someone turned the manual key while the car was in motion, Sanders said.

So somebody working directly for Trump, left him stranded in an elevator stuck between floors.

And with that the image just became even more enjoyable.

P.S. By the way the "security team" they reference may or may not be the Secret Service, but if it is the SS they might be rebelling against Trump's treasonous attitudes and attacks on the military.

    Evidently Field Marshal err Fire Marshall Trump doesn't understand building occupancy numbers. They are not up for conversation. 1500 people was the maximum the building could safely evacuate in case of a fire based on fire exits, extinguishers and other criteria. Trump knows this from his NY buildings alone. But he chose to make it a political argument instead.

    According to a new story in the New York Times, the campaign and the RNC have taken stock of the situation and reacted accordingly. To quote from the article;

    Donald J. Trump, confronting a daunting electoral map and a significant financial disadvantage, is preparing to fall back from an expansive national campaign and concentrate the bulk of his time and money on just three or four states that his campaign believes he must sweep in order to win the presidency.

    Those three magic bullet states are Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida. This not a comforting thought. A Suffolk University poll, taken on 7/28, before the DNC had ended showed Clinton up by 9 in Pennsylvania. Not an easy lift for Trump, and based on the general opinions of the convention, and the bus tour she and Tim Kaine are on right now, I would be surprised if the margin doesn’t widen. Recent polling in Ohio shows the race a basic tie. There hasn’t been an RCP aggregate poll in Florida in about a month, but the last one on 6/27 showed a statistical tie. Even a 7/29 St. Louis Dispatch poll shows Clinton +1. Tim Kaine’s Spanish fluency should help in Florida, and Kasich supporters in Ohio may well punish Trump for his slandering of their Governor. But guess what? It may not matter.

    This whole three legged coffee table depends on one simple premise, Trump holding home serve. And it doesn’t look like he’s doing it.

    Trump's nervous breakdown is right on schedule.

    Trump tweet this morning:

    I was viciously attacked by Mr. Khan at the Democratic Convention. Am I not allowed to respond? Hillary voted for the Iraq war, not me!

    The more people “attack” him, the more he will respond with even more outlandish behavior. His narcissism can’t deal with any criticism whatsoever and he simply was not able to imagine that people wouldn't respond to his candidacy with worship and admiration.

    Don’t bother being shocked by anything he does because he’ll keep escalating until he devolves into a gibbering sack of spray-tanned rage and spittle.

    BREAKING--Clinton bouncing in PPP Poll

    PPP's new national poll, taken completely after both party's conventions, finds that Hillary Clinton emerged with a much more positive image than she had a month ago. Donald Trump meanwhile is just as unpopular as he was before the conventions.

    Clinton's net favorability improved by 9 points over the last month.

    You left off the best part!


    After he got out of the stuck elevator thanks to the firefighters, he went to the talk he was supposed to give in a large room at the hotel, and the first thing he did was blast/insult the Fire Dept Chief because the FDC's office had denied some part of an entrance permit when the room was supposedly going to be packed too full per fire codes.

    The FDC's next quote sounded genial and experienced -- that people often don't like it when he has to enforce rules for their safety, but he doesn't care or take it personally.

    I liked that part even better.

      Yay! I am so glad all the pics have finally made it into the mainstream media. And this was in 1995, a year before she moved permanently to the US and just 2 1/2-3 years before she and Trump met, and sometime between Sept. of 1998 and during 1999 they became a couple. She was 25 at the time of the shoot and moved to NY in 1996, the year after the shoot, and he met her in 1998 and wanted her but she delayed because he was still married and dating other people. Yes she was in her mid-20s when posing nude (and in her mid-late 20's when she had her thing with Trump) and it could be said that she was young, but she was no innocent and she made so many decisions that were about not just getting ahead but about putting vereything into a relationship with a guy 24 years her senior who was rich and would keep her in at least millions of dollars for the rest of her life (if they divorced). I have no sympathy anymore for Melania or for any of the Trump offspring (except for Barron). They all lie as a daily way of life and are so selfish. That latest picture out there of the sons posing with a dead leopard--they hunt leopard and are all for hunting elephants (but I don't know if they've actually killed any elephants) makes me sick.

    I watched that Colorado Springs rally and of course there was no mention of the elevator incident. Unlike other people, he didn't use it as a funny anecdote, I thought before seeing G's post here today. Trump hates looking foolish--like when in CA the protesting made him have to get out of his car on the highway--and so I thought it wasn't mentioned for that reason. But now I realize that there was even more to the story and it was his own fault. And now that we know the whole story, we know that he wasn't just making his usual complaint about the # of people wanting in at his convention being kept out, but we know that his remarks about the fire marshal also reflected his frustration about how Trump and his own people got his ass stuck in that elevator and so he was late to the speaking engagement. I also watched the early morning news Saturday and an anchor very specifically asked a reporter in CO about that Friday rally. Yes the # of people were limited and there were people outside, but the reporter made it very clear that the # of people wanting to attend were nowhere close to what Trump is used to. It sounded as though the crowds might start getting smaller--we'll see.

    Trump just can't stop lying about every little thing. Just these past few days he has lied about having turned down the Koch bros for a meeting (they refused to have contact), about the NFL sending him a letter (and then he lied and said, vaguely, that it was something said by someone word of mouth), and he keeps lying about the convention viewership numbers. On Friday he was saying that "millions" more and "millions and millions more" watched his speech over Hillary's. He said nothing about the fact that on the other three nights the Dems walloped the GOP. The numbers for those days range from 5 million to 7.2 million more votes. Only on day four did more watch the GOP convention. 1.2 million more watched Trump's speech, but he is out there lying about the numbers even still, even today, on Twitter. And by the way, although the Nielsen # doesn't include PBS, C-SPAN and YouTube, more Dem days were watched on YouTube and i think it's very safe to say that more Dems watched on PBS, and probably C-SPAN too.

      Sarah Palin ='s the 'kiss of death' to any candidate she endorses.

      Don't forget that she first came out in support of Cruz (as did the State of Alaska!) and he's gone!

      And then she endorsed Donald Trump! She thought she'd be a part of his ticket and that is the ONLY smart thing he has done in his life - making the decision NOT to include her as his VP running mate!

      The handwriting is on the wall that he will lose this race!

      Vote for Hillary Clinton! She'll get the job done, already having the experience and knowledge to do so.

      Most especially that of Rachel Maddow and the old guy she appeared with on MSNBC and CNN with its panels! It was great getting it unfiltered via C-Span!

      This story appeared in my Facebook feed and I thought it was a powerful testament to Hillary Clinton’s true character and conviction. I’m particularly interested in dispelling the myth of her apparent cold/calculating/manipulative/shill persona.

      There are so many similar stories out there about HRC it’s unfortunate we don’t hear them more often, which is why I wanted to share this one here. Click to read James Grissom’s entire Facebook post—it’s well worth it and may serve to encourage some who are on the fence about Hillary.

      PS: as of this posting, the original FB post has already been liked >68K and shared >34K times.

    There are plenty of everyday folk that rationalize everything that trump does and spin all that he says .
    "Trump has a good heart because he forgave the person that plagiarized Michelle Obamas speech"instead of firing him.
    Folks are buying onto this bs! We must be vigilante and make sure everyone votes. I started making reoccurring contributions to Hillary. Never give up! In spite of all of the trump ineptitude, many many ignorant folks will be in his corner.I see it everyday.It is frightening.

  38. Well, hotel elevators are just SO complicated. I mean, you have to figure out which floor you want to go to, then push a button with that number on it. Really, you can't expect Donald Trump to figure out anything so complicated. Be fair. He's a idiot.

    Trump Humiliates Himself On National TV By Not Knowing Russia Is Already In Ukraine

    Trump obviously isn’t studying his briefing books. When asked a question about a global conflict that he knows nothing about Trump resorted to his usual empty bluster, and it completely backfired.

    Donald Trump humiliated himself on national television.

    It is easy to see why Putin wants Comrade Donald to be the next US president. If Trump wins, Putin will have a clueless stooge leading the world’s only superpower who can be easily manipulated and pushed around.

    Trump Is So Afraid Of Hillary Clinton That He Is Making Up Reasons Not To Debate Her

    Donald Trump is laying the groundwork to trying to dodge debating Hillary Clinton, and the Republican Party announced that they are standing with Trump.

    ...The American people have seen this movie before. Trump pulled the same tricks to get changes in the Republican primary debates. Here is what is going to happen next. Trump is going to threaten the bipartisan debate commission with not showing up for the first presidential debate. Trump is going to demand changes to the debate location, format, and date. Trump is going to want a studio audience. If all of his conditions aren’t met, Trump will threaten to hold his own event on debate night.

    The problem is that Donald Trump is losing, and he needs the debates way more than the debates need him.

    I hope everyone realizes that Trump feeds the ongoing madness with the media and press by constantly putting out statements that are lies!

    He states them daily and is showing how corrupt and devastating he is as a human being!

    This keeps him from telling the country what his policies would be should he ever be elected POTUS.

    The guy is playing games and he's so transparent. He has no more a clue as to what he'd do in the office than fly a kite!

    But, it is foreseeable if elected as POTUS, that he'd RULE AS A FASCIST DICTATOR and FIX everything all by HIMSELF!

    Vote Hillary Clinton in November! She is our OUTSTANDING chose for POTUS in January, 2017!

    The Republican Nominee owes our Veterans and slain soldiers an apology! Busted on Vietnam Wall Lie

    Donald Trump is trying to take credit for getting the Vietnam War memorial built when he didn’t even bother to show up for the meetings. Trump is no friend to our vets, and if Trump is elected president, he will treat vets the same poor way that he has treated them for entire adult life as a private citizen.

    Donald Trump, Trump lied about getting Vietnam War Memorial built, vietnam war memorial

    On behalf of every slain soldier who died on foreign soil and every family member who has suffered that loss and for every veteran who looks to the Memorial for healing and comfort, The Republican Nominee owes you an apology.

    Trump’s grabbing of “Law and Order” as a campaign theme is right out the Nixon playbook. Playing the fear card works when your followers are disposed to be paranoid. Capitalizing on fear for political gain would take on new urgency in the age of Global Terror. Here’s a blast from the past (1968).

    White, Male, Veteran - Why I won't vote for Trump

    I am a white, male, Christian, military and law enforcement veteran, with a high school diploma (some college), now in my early 60’s and in senior management, financially successful living in the suburbs of a major city. By all demographics, I should be voting Republican.

    I will never vote for Donald Trump. I love my country too much to do that. I will not betray my fellow American’s that way.

    He is an embarrassment to my race, my gender, my faith, my military and work experiences. He has dishonored our country, embraced foreign entanglements in our political system, disrespected women, people of faith, working class Americans, and insulted military veterans and their parents. His blatant and overt bigotry has even disgraced and embarrassed other Republicans and conservatives. He has lied, bullied, intimidated and cheated people and institutions throughout his life, and is proud of it. He is not, in any way shape or form, representative of true leadership.

    The Gish Gallop is an effective debating technique when used in front of laypeople who don’t know the facts, or believers who simply don’t care. Trump is not the first politician to use it effectively, and he probably won’t be the last. But Trump has elevated rapid-fire lying to angry mobs to heights not seen in presidential politics since the days of George Wallace.

    Just since the first draft of this article midweek, Trump has encouraged Putin to hack democratic servers, then downplayed it saying he was kidding, moved on the dissing the Khan’s, and either revealed a secret base in Saudi Arabia, or more likely, simply made one up. And that’s just the major items over the last few days.

    Most journalists do value accuracy and there are a number of resources for untangling the lies and setting the record straight. But it remains to be seen if Trump’s bullshit can be successfully countered for the benefit of the undecided voters who will make the difference in this election.
