Obviously. It would be even more idiotic if it weren't. 

At which point it would be a Trump quote.
And now abide faith, hope and love; these three, but the greatest of these is love

Did you see a smiley or winkey emoticon or an 'lol'?

Me either.
A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

No he meant it as a joke, according to him. It was just idiotic.

It got lots of commentary from the UK when he posted it.

Of course it is!

Bottom line is there is no case for Trump.

Stephen, if I were take the time to write one would you publish an editorial in favor of Gary Johnson?
I support meaningless jingoistic cliches

It would be a pleasure.  Thanks for offering to do it!

Spuwho, thank you for writing this piece. It's written well and provides perspective. I remain unconvinced but I'd rather have you describe Trump's benefits than have Trump describe Trump.

So, what will it take for you to abandon Trump?

I would love to read it.  I'm leaning towards him.  My biggest complaint would be his ultra isolationist views.

that's my question as well.

easily the least qualified candidate in our history.

an absolute disaster if he is to win.

we NEED to change Spuwho's mind!

I am undecided at this point, but I am more than happy to write one.

Trump on Vladimir Putin at the recent Commander in Chief Discussion:   

 "He's been a leader far more than our President has been a leader."

Since many readers seem to support Trump I hope you will read this link.  There's so much evidence out there that Trump just literally "talks out of his ass" in order to give red meat to the Repub base. Here are some startling facts about Trumps leadership mentor, Vladimir Putin.
One can only assume Trump has not actually examined the results of Putin's "leadership."

I think Trump is performing as expected. It's nice that he's already talking about a nuclear holocaust like no other.

"When I hear that a grown man calls himself Jimbo, it's like when someone tells me he supports Trump: I automatically know he's a fucking idiot,"-- my boss, who is very conservative and wealthy and a veteran, on Trump and Jimbo Fisher.

"Assuming that all people who vote for certain candidates are "fucking idiots" is a sure way to ensure they'll never listen to your message and vote your way" -- someone who isn't interested in losing elections.
