So apparently Donald Trump needs reminders as to where he is, and which way to go when he finishes speaking.

The yellow arrow says "exit for ropeline" and the white piece of paper says "Mechanicsburg, PA."

Which as it turns out is where Trump was speaking just yesterday.

Gee I wonder who took this picture and then leaked it to Reddit?

Maybe it's the same person who pushed the stop button on the elevator in Colorado Springs?

    According to a report from MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump asked a foreign policy advisor three times during a briefing why he couldn’t just use nuclear weapons to solve the nation’s problems.

    Scarborough shared the anecdote on Morning Joe Wednesday, speaking deliberately to avoid naming his source. “I’ll be very careful here. Several months ago, a foreign policy expert on international level went to advise Donald Trump.”

    “Three times he asked about the use of nuclear weapons. Three times he asked, at one point, ‘If we have them, why can’t we use them?'”

    Not only will Donald Trump lose this election by a LANDSLIDE to Hillary...
    but he will become (is rapidly becoming) one of the most loathed and reviled human beings on the planet.

    1. The media is now realizing they will get great ratings by covering his downfall, just like when they sold out to his "agreements" to build him up with free coverage.

      But I don't think it will be a landslide: too much gerrymandering and if/when he loses, his hardcore Trumpzies will demand recounts of every single ballot, claiming Hillary's win illegitimate.

      T will not stop until he has destroyed the gop & democracy to satisfy (not possible) his personality pathologies and need for attention.

    Donald Trump is getting “nuttier and nuttier” according to those within the tycoon’s presidential campaign, who say they are increasingly frustrated by his outrageous comments and behavior.

    The Republican candidate has been engaged in a prolonged war of words with Khizr and Ghazala Khan, whose son was killed in Iraq in 2004, which many inside the presidential campaign see as, at the very least, as a total distraction.

    “I did not think he’d be great in a general election, and thought there’d be episodes of paranoia/irrationality, but this is surprising for me,” one Trump operative said.

    “Trump is getting nuttier and nuttier,” the person added.

    Campaign chairman Paul Manafort and other staffers “feel like they are wasting their time,” CNN reported Wednesday.

    Meg Whitman Endorses Hillary Clinton, Says Trump Would 'Endanger National Security'

    Meg Whitman, the Hewlett-Packard CEO who ran as the GOP candidate for California’s gubernatorial election in 2010, has publicly endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president, denouncing Republican nominee Donald Trump as a provocateur who has “exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division” for his own political gain.

    “As a proud Republican, casting my vote for president has usually been a simple matter. This year is different,” wrote Whitman, who posted her endorsement via Facebook late Tuesday night. “Donald Trump’s demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character”...

    Calling Clinton a politician with “bedrock national values” and a “far better choice in 2016 for President of the United States,” the CEO decried Trump, a man whose medium-sized fingers are actually ossified jumbo cocktail shrimp, as a potentially lethal alternative.

    “Trump’s reckless and uninformed positions on critical issues – from immigration to our economy to foreign policy – have made it abundantly clear that he lacks both the policy depth and sound judgment required as President,” Whitman stated. “Trump’s unsteady hand would endanger our prosperity and national security. His authoritarian character could threaten much more.”...

    Whitman, who for years has served as a major donor and fundraiser for the GOP—and who, in strange symmetry with her now-nemesis Trump, broke the record for the largest self-funded political campaign in U.S. history by contributing millions to her own gubernatorial bid—also promised to use her talents to drum up money for the Clinton campaign.

    “I will vote for Hillary, I will talk to my Republican friends about helping her, and I will donate to her campaign and try to raise money for her,” she confirmed in an interview with The New York Times.

    GOP Officials Exploring Options if Trump Drops Out

    Republican officials are exploring how to handle a scenario that would be unthinkable in a normal election year: What would happen if the party's presidential nominee dropped out?

    ABC News has learned that senior party officials are so frustrated -- and confused by Donald Trump's erratic behavior -- that they are exploring how to replace him on the ballot if he were to drop out.

    So, how would it work?

    First, Trump would have to voluntarily exit the race. Officials say there is no mechanism for forcing him to withdraw his nomination. (Trump has not given any indications that he no longer wants to be his party's nominee).

    Then, it would be up to the 168 members of the Republican National Committee to choose a successor, though the process is complicated.

    One Republican legal expert has advised party officials that, for practical reasons, Trump would have to drop out by early September to give the party enough time to choose his replacement and get the next nominee's name on the ballot in enough states to win.

    Here is what the RNC's bylaws say about filling a vacancy on a presidential ticket:

    RULE NO. 9 Filling Vacancies in Nominations

    (a) The Republican National Committee is hereby authorized and empowered to fill any and all vacancies which may occur by reason of death, declination, or otherwise of the Republican candidate for President of the United States or the Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States, as nominated by the national convention, or the Republican National Committee may reconvene the national convention for the purpose of filling any such vacancies.

    (b) In voting under this rule, the Republican National Committee members representing any state shall be entitled to cast the same number of votes as said state was entitled to cast at the national convention.

    (c) In the event that the members of the Republican National Committee from any state shall not be in agreement in the casting of votes hereunder, the votes of such state shall be divided equally, including fractional votes, among the members of the Republican National Committee present or voting by proxy.

    (d) No candidate shall be chosen to fill any such vacancy except upon receiving a majority of the votes entitled to be cast in the election.

    It's the polls.

    When Trump clinched the nomination, his polls surged. It turned out to be a fleeting surge. But it provided critical grease on the skids of numerous Republicans coming around to at least nominal support for his candidacy. The dip in his numbers, fleeting or enduring, are having a similar effect. But whatever. Bad polls numbers, the refusal to endorse the House Speaker in his primary race, these appear to be the drivers. Is there really anything we've seen about Donald Trump in the last week that wasn't entirely obvious two weeks ago? Of course not. This is craven and ridiculous any way you slice it. Sometimes the train is rumbling down the tracks at 120 miles an hour. You have no brakes. You have no conductor. You have no way to change physics. Sometimes that's just how it is.

"People are going to watch you every single day. They’re going to take everything they can out of context, and he is not yet performing at the level that you need to."

    ..."So there’s always going to be a residual possibility that Trump can win. The question is, can he in August slow down, take a deep breath and reorganize how he’s operating so that he gets to the standard of a potential president of the United States? He has not done that up to now," Gingrich said. "It’s been significantly to his disadvantage."

Trump, however, is no joke. He is the real deal when it comes to divisive politics. Trump has an ego the size of my ass (and trust me when I tell you that is one yuuuuuuuuge ass). Everything he does is for selfish reasons, fueled by greed and motivated by power.

    .... Trump’s wild unfitness for elected office, let alone the highest one in the land, has been manifest for years.

    Evidence continues to pour forth at an astonishing pace.

    Last night, his still-loyal aide Corey Lewandowski revived the conspiracy theory that President Obama has hidden a secret foreign birth that would disqualify him as president.


    Joe Scarborough reports that, in foreign-policy briefings, Trump has repeatedly asked why it is that the United States can’t use nuclear weapons.

    We already knew Trump was an ignorant, manically aggressive conspiracy theorist, which has caused a handful of them to withhold endorsements. What has especially pained Republicans is his lack of political acuity. His mishandling of Khizr Khan’s speech to the Democratic National Convention has reportedly caused grave misgivings among his staff...

    From the standpoint of the staffers working to make Trump president, this behavior was worse than immoral. It was downright unprofessional...

    John Harwood reports that Paul Manafort, the supposed adult in charge of the campaign who can curtail the candidate’s self-destructive impulses, is “not challenging Trump anymore. Mailing it in,” and the other staff is (metaphorically, one assumes) “suicidal.”

    Ali Vitali confirms Harwood’s report, and adds that the situation is “way worse than people realize.”

    According to Dana Bash, these staffers “feel like they are wasting their time.”

    This is sad for the Trump staffers, who have worked so hard to give an unstable demagogue control of the executive branch.
