Trump vs. Trump In Luxury Presidential Debate (With Added Ted Cruz Ad)

Filed under: General — Dana @ 10:56 am

[guest post by Dana]

This is pretty funny. Of course, Trump supporters are going to think otherwise.

Ted Cruz, whose campaign has been shown to have the most effective and persuasive political ads of this campaign season, has released yet another hard-hitting ad which shows Trump as a crony in bed with politicians, including liberal Democrats. The ad smartly uses Trump’s own words against him:

  1. Trump debating his very favorite person in the world, the man he most admires, the man who would be king!

  2. to me this seems like it was edited together to make Mr. Trump look bad

  3. Heavily edited! Just like the nightly news on every channel.

    Considering all things Trump, does it really matter??

  6. Interestingly, a person with the talent, tie and resources could make a video like that which would last an hour. Which would still be an hour less than one made of Hillary’s! lies.

  8. Trump can get reagan democrats and even some black voters. Rafael crud can’t even get canadians to vote for him!

  9. That’s because unlike in democrat races Republicans won’t let Canadians illegally vote, Perry.

  10. This kind of video could on and on and on and on.

    Sadly, it doesn’t matter to people who will vote for the guy who honest to God wanted to install marble walls on his airline.

    You know, the airline that went bankrupt and was taken away from him.

    Good news is that someone explained to him about weight and lift in aeronautics. If only it were true in real life.

    My father put it best long ago, with this kind of person. He warned me to never write a check with my mouth I wasn’t prepared to cash.

    But this guy? He uses other people’s money.

  11. It’s still funny that the deranged Perry thinks a name like Rafael would turn off Conservative voters. My sister’s first name is hispanic, what, with our hispanic blood mixed with our injun blood and our European blood. And two people named Amado are important to me.

    As always, it’s the Lying Left that views everything by race.

    Whether post #8 is from him or not, but if it is from a devout liberal, then that person at least acknowledging that various Democrats may be wandering away from their party’s candidates — particularly from Her Royal Highness Hillary — at least is a step in the right direction.

    Until I know for sure that the horror cited in this article is out of the picture totally and completely — and one of the great national nightmares of our lifetime is finally over — I can’t quibble about any of the Republican candidates (although I do admit that Jeb Bush rubs me the wrong way).

    nypost.com, January 31, 2016: The State Department is lying when it says it didn’t know until it was too late that Hillary Clinton was improperly using personal e-mails and a private server to conduct official business — because it never set up an agency e-mail address for her in the first place, the department’s former top watchdog says.

    “This was all planned in advance” to skirt rules governing federal records management, said Howard J. Krongard, who served as the agency’s inspector general from 2005 to 2008.

    The Harvard-educated lawyer points out that, from Day One, Clinton was never assigned and never used a state.gov e-mail address like previous secretaries.

    “That’s a change in the standard. It tells me that this was premeditated. And this eliminates claims by the State Department that they were unaware of her private e-mail server until later,” Krongard said in an exclusive interview. “How else was she supposed to do business without e-mail?”

    He also points to the unusual absence of a permanent inspector general during Clinton’s entire 2009-2013 term at the department. He said the 5¹/₂-year vacancy was unprecedented.

    “This is a major gap. In fact, it’s without precedent,” he said. “It’s the longest period any department has gone without an IG.”

    “It’s clear she did not want to be subject to internal investigations,” Krongard said. An e-mail audit would have easily uncovered the secret information flowing from classified government networks to the private unprotected system she set up in her New York home.

    Mark (f713e4)

  16. John Hitchcock, that’s because to Perry and his fellow leftists a person named Rafael is a voting statistic not a human being. Also in his lily-white gated community world guys with Hispanic, injun and European blood like you or guys with Irish, German and African blood like mine can’t be Republican let alone conservative. We don’t fit their preconceived notion.

    Rev. Barack Hussein Hoagie™ (f4eb27)

    That’s what happened to me happyfeet. I ate lunch then a couple Korean friends came in and brought me these Korean fried spring rolls and I dip them in a spicy duck-type sauce with black sesame seeds which I spilled on my keyboard. Now I’m all sticky.

  19. Patterico would murder his own mother if he thought it would stop Trump from deporting his mexican slave labor.

    Thats all you establishment scumbags are. Slave traders that drive down wages through slavery of 3rd world peasants.

    Joe (dcf4fa)

  20. #18 Joe,

    I don’t pretend to speak for Patterico, but I’m pretty certain none of his archived objections to Trump has anything to do with a prurient desire to see open borders.

    Trump is objectionable for myriad of reasons. Let’s just begin with the fact that Donnie is a lifelong Democrat who had decades of opportunities of influence in the public sphere in order to actively voice his opposition to open borders.
    Trump is not a conservative. And he’s a vindictive bully. We need someone who is angry about the direction of the country, and who is angry about the world being set on fire by jihadists (and to a lesser degree China/North Korea/Venezuela et al) but who at the same time is calm and measured in their judgments and responses.

    Donnie Trump is not that guy.
    Donnie Trump is afraid of Megyn Kelly’s questions—okay?
    His dodging the last debate does not exactly remind people of Ronald Reagan in New Hampshire, in 1980, exclaiming, “I paid for this microphone, Mr. Green!”

    Cruz Supporter (102c9a)

  21. Dana, some of us have resolve…commitment to a greater goal…weird, but some of us recognize we either fight now via ballot box or on the streets with a hand gun.

    If Trump is the choice…whoa be the decision. I’m 50, life is short…those who have a plug for this man, their days are seriously numbered.

    Pretty sure not alone.

    pieter (ec44a2)

  22. happy, where is the counterpoint to the madness of armed insurgency? If you are proven obvious lazy republican, leaving it to the FBI for resolution…you are a unequivocal pussy. Not to fear, you have many in good company.

    pieter (ec44a2)

  23. we can’t do the armed insurgency number one it’s still restaurant week next week number two armed insurgency is very dangerous

    so the counterpoint to the armed insurgency is to make America great again, and that is precisely what Team MAGA is all about!

    the FBI is super corrupt btw I wouldn’t trust them not even Mulder and Scully

    Pretty much says it all. I assume “details” means having any idea what he’s going to actually do.

    But he won’t be the next Prez anyway so what he’ll do is academic.

    Gerald A (7c7ffb)

  39. The main suspense is on the Democrat side with Sanders starting to look like a real threat.

    With Trump being repulsive to such a large number of voters I could see him losing to Bernie. I think there’s a fairly good chance Sanders is the next Prez.

    Gerald A (7c7ffb)

  40. The canadian sociopath crud’s latest slime. Sending official looking threatening letters to republican voters warning them to come out and vote for crud or else! This works on black democrats we will see if it works on republicans.

    trumpet (6db9e3)

  41. With Trump being repulsive to such a large number of voters I could see him losing to Bernie.

    If those are the nominees there will be a effing scramble to qualify 2 or 3 national independents. It would not surprise me to see major walkouts at one or both conventions in favor of an alternative candidate.

    The Democrats had split ballots in 1948 and 1960 (and perhaps in 1968, depending on how you look at it). The GOP hasn’t had this kind of problem since 1912, but a narrow Trump victory might tear things. Even if the Convention forges some unity, someone like Romney might be talked into saving the Party.

    And then there’s Bloomberg for a Trifecta of terrible choices.

    Maybe so, if it’s quite close in committed delegates. But if Sanders has a lead of even a few percent, say 52-48, I wouldn’t be too sure.

    trumpet (6db9e3) — 1/31/2016 @ 6:35 pm

    I haven’t decided whether I’ll vote for Trump if he’s the nominee. I know judging a candidate by his supporters may seem illogical, but the generally unhinged nature of the Trumpers increasingly leads me to conclude I won’t. Of course if I thought Trump was a quality individual who clearly shares my principles, then I could overlook what appears to be a large number of deranged people in his camp, but I don’t think that.

    Gerald A (7c7ffb)

  50. The only reason I would consider voting for Trump is to see how his supporters cope after he cuts a deal with Democrats that provides amnesty and a pathway to citizenship.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

    felipe (56556d)

  54. nk, that would be my dream scenario. Thanks, Kevin m for the link. That was the caliber of ad that I want from the Cruz campaign. In their own words.

    felipe (56556d)

  55. You would think that commercial would cut deep, but a lot of Trump supporters, like our friend above, have their fingers in their ears and are yelling “FUFUFUFUFUFUFUFUFUFUFUFUFUFU!” to drown out any contrary message.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  56. Re: Trump’s success as a businessman and what it means…

    …well, he’s a lot more successful businessman than I am, but that’s not really a criterion for selecting a president.

    The more I think about it, the more I’m reminded of Billy Martin’s famous shot at George Steinbrenner when the two of them were going at it in the late 70’s: “He (George) was born on 3rd base and thinks he hit a triple.”

    Go ahead and hate but I dare you to say you’ll vote for Clinton or Sanders if Trump gets the nomination.

    Ustuplay (4dd398)

  59. Trump raised a million dollars to get John McCain elected instead of Obama. So he did more that you did to keep us from the age of foodstamp.
    Then he gave a $100K to the Romney campaign. So he did more than you did twice, and always from the same direction. Gave Reagan the same golden handshake.

    He did more than all of you combined (unless Happyfeet is Bill Gate’s secret identity) to get a Republican elected. Any Republican. He didn’t hold his nose or pound the desk saying “I’ll vote for Hillary if McCain gets the nod.”

    And he doesn’t even like McCain. It’s just he knew Obama would be worse.

    papertiger (c2d6da)

  60. Tomorrow is all about new York values…hopefully such will be soundly denounced. Flyover country will speak, perhaps intelligently.

    pieter (ec44a2)

  61. Trump’s success as business man is a joke…he treaded water on the ability to declare bankruptcy multiple times. As a possible president, is he going to similarly default on our supposed good credit to fake a yuuuuge classy win?

    pieter (ec44a2)

  62. ‘Night all. I feel the transformation to pumpkin…God bless you Iowans, please make a good decision in the voting booth.

    pieter (ec44a2)

  63. Go ahead and hate but I dare you to say you’ll vote for Clinton or Sanders if Trump gets the nomination.

    Why do you think we want to deny him the nomination so badly? Why do you want you want to make the country suffer that terrible choice?

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  64. And he doesn’t even like McCain. It’s just he knew Obama would be worse.

    papertiger, please show me links to a neutral source for this, as Trump’s claims are all over the map. For example, in 2011 he claimed that he had supported candidate Obama.

    Kevin M (25bbee)

  69. As of a few years ago Trump had given more money to Democrats than Republicans.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trumps-donation-history-shows-democratic-favoritism/2011/04/25/AFDUddtE_story.html

    The Democratic recipients of Trump’s donations make up what looks like a Republican enemies list, including former senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.), Sen. John F. Kerry (Mass.), Rep. Charles B. Rangel (N.Y.), Sen. Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.) and the late liberal lion Edward M. Kennedy (Mass.).

    The biggest recipient of all has been the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee of New York, which has taken in more than $125,000 from Trump and his companies. Overall, Trump has given nearly $600,000 to New York state campaigns, with more than two-thirds going to Democrats.

    Trump said in a recent interview that he had relatively few Republican options in an overwhelmingly blue state.

    His Democratic generosity is hardly confined to New York, however. Trump has given more than $250,000 to federal candidates and campaigns, including more than $100,000 to the party’s House and Senate campaign committees. He donated $10,400 to Reid, including for his 2010 battle with Sharron Angle, the GOP nominee and tea party favorite.

    Since then he has given more to R’s than D’s, but why? An obvious explanation is that he has been planning for a while to run in 2016. I see no other apparent reason for it.

    Sending official looking threatening letters to republican voters warning them to come out and vote for crud or else! This works on black democrats we will see if it works on republicans.

    No, what works on black Democrats is:

    The republicans are trying to take your right to vote away by imposing ID requirements! Don’t let them win! We’ll help you to vote, we’ll make sure everything is OK, and take you to the polls!

    Hillary’s campaign theme against Bernard Sanders that he’s overpromising is also working.

    Sammy Finkelman (dbec95)

  71. Because it just happens the R’s are the ones he needed to bribe to get a project approved. Relax, he’ll be bribing D’s in short order. It’s what crony capitalists do, silly rabbit.

  72. Or the Washington Cartel will bribe Trump with money, power and influence. Bribers and bribery work both ways, don’t they?
