Three minutes, fifteen seconds

Darron Cummings/A.P.
Such a nasty time. I can not wait for this election to be over. Trump is making a steady and scary climb in the polls, a month ago he was an 82 to 18 shot, it has swung ten points his way. Frightening. He certainly could win.

Lots of friends have announced that they are moving somewhere else if he gets elected. Not me, I'm making popcorn, going to enjoy the show.

The guy is a brilliant communicator and he is playing the media like a fiddle. He reminds me of one of his supporters, Bobby Knight. Working the refs so he can get a call late in the game.

Today was a brilliant snapshot of Herr Trump at his trumpiest. Last week he called out tonight's debate moderator, NBC's Lester Holt.
The Republican presidential candidate said on The O'Reilly Factor Monday night that he respects NBC "Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt, who is moderating the first debate, but took issue with the political lean of the moderators as a whole. 
"Lester is a Democrat. It's a phony system. They are all Democrats. It's a very unfair system.
I've worked pretty well within the system. I guess by a lot of polls I'm leading many of the polls," Trump told Bill O'Reilly on Fox News. "I think we are doing very well, and the system is aghast."
All well and good except for one thing. Lester Holt is a Republican.


Trump likes to rail against the liberal media. I think the guy has been getting a free pass.

It is estimated by Politico that Trump lies once every three minutes and fifteen seconds.  And I know that many of you don't care, you've told me, I get it. Maybe its time we had a liar, yadda, yadda, yadda. Do the country good. Anybody but that bitch Hillary. I just ask that you be honest with me later after you vote this schmuck in.

Trump's oh so smooth spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway, when confronted by the Holt prevarication said that it wasn't really a lie because Trump didn't actually know Holt's party fealty.

Oy.
