Mr. Brexit?

"Brexit is an abbreviation for "British exit," which refers to the June 23, 2016, referendum whereby British citizens voted to exit the European Union."

So does this mean that Donald Trump is leaving the EU?

Or does it mean, as Time Magazine suggests, that he is going to suddenly turn things around and surprise people by overcoming the odds and attracting the most votes as the Brexit referendum did in United Kingdom?

Or does it mean he has had enough and is leaving the presidential race?

If it is the third one that means that this recent Michael Moore article suggesting that Trump never wanted to win the presidency and is looking to drop out is dead on.

Could this mean that our long national nightmare is about to end?

Or that it is only about to get worse?

Beats the hell out of me.

    But if he drops out, does this mean Pence is the GOP presidential candidate?

      Pence will not automatically become the candidate, the RNC has a committee of 168 people that would chose the next candidate. Problem is it maybe too late to get him on the ballot.

      It wouldn't be automatic.

      But it would be likely.

      They'll want stability on the ticket and moving Pence up to P and adding a new VP is less disruptive than just nominating a new P.

      Neither option is good and changing now will guarantee they lose in November. No matter who they choose. And whoever they put on that ticket will be poisoned for future chances so they won't waste anyone that might have a shot in the future. That's why Mike Pence is on it. He's about to be replaced as governor of his own state and would never have a shot as a nominee in the future. So he's a placeholder. Their primary identified many placeholders they could use.

      There are some looming points of no return, like deadlines for printing ballots & such. If Drumpf does pull a pull a Drexit, it might tend to support one thought I've had for a long time, that the point (or one point) of the entire bizarre journey has been to give a HUGE middle finger to the GOP establishment. He's certainly doing a marvelous job of it, whether or not he's been trying.

    I could be wrong, but I can't see Trump dropping out. I think he has gotten a good taste of the power and attention he's received from this race and he really enjoys it. We all know he is a narcissistic bully who enjoys controlling others so I suspect he'll stick around until everyone has had enough. Who knows though?!

      I thought he would find a way to drop out when it became clear he could never win.

      Now I'm thinking he is so delusional he doesn't realize he can't win.

      Maybe there is a bit of both.

      He is making excuses and pointing in other directions to lay blame. So on some level he must realize he is so far down he'll never win. But I still wonder if on the surface, his ego is convincing him to stay in because he doesn't quit, which is in conflict with he doesn't lose.

      Of course, I didn't think he'd do the debates either so we'll see.

    Rio 2016 Olympics: US swimmers 'invented robbery story

    US Olympic swimmers in Rio de Janeiro invented a story about a robbery in an effort to disguise a dispute over a damaged petrol station door, police sources have told the BBC.
    One of the athletes broke the door to the bathroom and a row ensued when attendants asked the Americans to pay for the damage, they said.
    After security guards were called in, the Americans reportedly paid and left.
    Three of the swimmers remain in Brazil and are due to be questioned by police.
    The fourth, gold medallist Ryan Lochte, returned to the US on Monday...

    What is said to have happened?
    The Civil Police of Rio de Janeiro told the BBC's Wyre Davies that about 06:00 (09:00 GMT) on Sunday, the four men arrived by taxi at a petrol station in Barra da Tijuca, 16km from the Olympic Park.
    One of the the athletes broke the door to the bathroom, the police said, and petrol station attendants asked the Americans to pay for the damage.
    A verbal dispute is said to have ensued with the attendants, and security guards were called to contain the incident. The police were also called.
    While police were on their way, another customer at the gas station served as interpreter for the athletes and helped agree payment for the damage.
    When police arrived, the athletes had already gone after paying for the broken door, and they returned to the Olympic Village....

    And yet for all that Jared has helped Trump, there is a sense among Jared's friends and business associates that he sees the gold-plated vision of a Trump White House as the ultimate step in a carefully plotted ascent to redemption, one that began when his father's scandal tarnished the family name. In this respect, it seems more than usually significant that both Kushner brothers have photographs of John F. Kennedy prominently displayed in their offices. Just as Kennedy's father was forced to yield his ambitions to his sons' generation after uttering controversial remarks during World War II, so too did the scandal that sent Charles Kushner to prison open the door for his sons—and especially for Jared—to launch their charm offensive on society at a very early age.

    For Conservative Press, The Post-Trump Reckoning Can’t Come Soon Enough

    Breitbart “is the tip of the spear for lunatic anti-Clinton pseudo-scandals and conspiracy theories, [and] has perfected the style of writing propaganda under the guise of ‘reporting’ like an electronic Arkansas Project,” he said. But whereas his old haunt respected some traditional boundaries, he couldn’t say the same of the current incarnation.

    Trump tweeted this just hours after a campaign surrogate made a fool of himself on CNN by repeatedly denying the existence of polls showing Trump was losing to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. Michael Cohen, the Trump surrogate, kept asking, “Says who?” and finally, “Which polls?” until Brianna Keilar was forced to tell him, “All of them.”

    Trump is down by an average of 6 points and he’s losing several swing states to Clinton right now. The path to victory for Trump is looking very slim.

    So now that “says who” was trending yesterday, we wake up this morning to Mr. Brexit.

    Trump supported Brexit, which won in a referendum 52% to 48%.

    But this isn’t a referendum and this isn’t the U.K. Furthermore, while early polling can be off and indeed all polling can be off for actual reasons, like pollsters who pretend African Americans won’t turn out for Obama and now for Clinton, polls when done well are an indication of where the race is heading.

    There’s also the problem that all of the polls say the same thing.

    Donald Trump looks at the polls that say he’s losing and announces that he’s winning. He’s Mr. Brexit!

      Each poll can have it's own bias and errors, but I think the key here is that so many of them indicate the same thing. Trump is so far back he'll never catch up. Short of Hillary dropping dead I don't see her losing. And even if she did, there is no guarantee that Trump would win. At this point I think there are so many voting against Trump that they could put anyone on the Democratic ticket and they'd still win.

    The Mr. Brexit refers to the theory most Brits voted for the exit from the EU because of immigration and distant regulation (not UK centered). Trump obviously sees his strengths in ginning up immigration anxieties among middle class workers and turning away from treaties (TPP, that the Obama administration entirely supports and Clinton waffles on). Unfortunately, this has nothing to do with Trump exiting the race. I am frankly amazed he had the nerve to go to the UK in any capacity anymore. He is absolutely hated there.
