They're quite small you know. Just ask Rubio what that means.

It means...."you can't trust 'em." At least according to some comment he made in a recent stump speech.

I don't think American political rhetoric can sink much lower. I never thought it was too funny or entertaining when Trump first entered the race, but now that the Republican nomination is all be inevitable it's just downright scary.

Scary how? He's putting the fun back into politics!

It isn't the same old "Share the wealth" rhetoric spouted by the demorats.

I'm tired of "sharing the wealth" with worthless criminals, future criminals who choose not to earn a legitimate living.

I laughed at that comment when Rubio said that. I just cannot believe how bad Cruz and Rubio been bashing on Trump recently. I think that strategy is too little too late.

Haven't followed this thread closely since I last posted but ran across this article which provides an interesting take on Trump. It's a long read and I have no idea what sort of source Vox is.

Before reading it, my opinion was the the Republicans and conservatives created an environment where Trump could become a potential candidate so maybe the article seemed interesting to me because of confirmation bias.

Blaming all of a country's problems on minority groups that don't actually hold much political power is nothing new, but the fact that so many Americans are eating it up is terrifying to me. But I also think the fact that a major political party's front runner has a Twitter feed more fitting for some basement dwelling troll is more embarrassing than humorous.

Yeah, the other Republicans should have been going after him earlier on instead of attacking each other over who would end up the 2nd place non-Trump candidate. He certainly dragged them down into the mud eventually, though.

Interesting - hope I can read the whole thing later. I'm also probably predisposed to agreeing with it, though. Personally I think Trump is no anomaly, but rather a natural progression of how things have been going on the right. IMO they've been catering to bigotry for a long time, but as soon as someone comes along and drops the dog whistles they're just shocked that anyone so vile could be doing well among Republican voters.

Oliver's set the bar pretty high for himself, but I thought that was a great episode.
