Trump: I Won’t Rule Out an Independent Run Even Though I Already Did
Donald Trump won’t rule out an independent run.
Of course, he already did rule out an independent run.
But of course he is a gigantic liar whose word is worthless, so nobody believed him which makes the lying OK.
Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump would not rule out making a run for president as an Independent despite signing a pledge in September saying he would support the eventual GOP nominee instead of running a third-party bid.
“I’m going to have to see what happens. I will see what happens. I have to be treated fairly,” Trump said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” when asked about a new guerrilla effort by operatives within the Republican Party to derail Trump’s candidacy. “When I did this, I said I have to be treated fairly. If I’m treated fairly, I’m fine. All I want to do is [have] a level playing field.”
Verdict: this is a scandal manufactured by the media and selective editing and how DARE you make something of it?! Trump supporters will of course be unfazed — just as they would be unfazed if Trump announced that he was going to sacrifice the first-born of every household to The Great God Clarence. Just as they would be unfazed if Trump knocked at their door and took a drunken swing at them for not buying local. “I deserved that,” Trump supporters would say, rubbing their sore jaw. “Honey, go get our firstborn.”
UPDATE: Here’s Trump, saying about a Black Lives Matter protestor who was apparently punched while trying to disrupt Trump’s speech, “maybe he should have been roughed up.” While I support using force if necessary to remove a disruption, I see that as different from saying a protestor “maybe should have been roughed up” — which strikes me as a leftist response (“I don’t like that guy’s views! Let’s get him!”) But never mind that. What I find more interesting about the clip is that Trump’s knock on Hillary is not that she is dishonest or power-hungry but that she lacks “stamina.” Is that the issue? She would be great if only she had more stamina?
BS. Trump unequivocally promised to support the GOP nominee. He lied. He'll lie to you next. Bet on it. @sarmitageca @TheRickWilson

UPDATE x3: The good thing about Trump’s circus of a candidacy is that it allows Ted Cruz to portray himself as the sane, electable guy.
