people on social media are having a field day over melania's plagiarism scandal smiley
a few have really tickled me...
"maybe melania is the reason why trump thinks  immigrants steal!! " lol!!
trumps politica career is built on denying obamas legitimacy and heres his wife stealig michelle obamas speech!!

the trumps might own a fortune in commerical property but when it come to intellectual property,they are clearly bankrupt !!

Technical detail!

Trump's wife is Slovenian, not Slovakian.

Slovenia was part of ex Yugoslavia and they were known as little Austrians.

yes i am aware of the difference but im alost positive i heard someone call her slovakian as in formally part of the czech republic
perhaps they made the mistake cause ivana trump is czech

plagarism aside,i actually thought that she did a dam good job speeking publicly for the first time proving that shes not just a pretty face.obviously she never wrote the speech herself
shes certainlly going to be the most beautiful first lady that the u.s has ever had

as for trump himself,i wonder how all his supports are going to react when he fails to deliver all the ridiculous promises he is making..
they cant possibly believe that he is actually going to build a wall to keep the mexicans out and make mexico pay for it!!
this is what he said in 1998 for people magazine

"if i were to run,id run as a republican,they're the dumbest group of voters in the country.they believe anything on fox news.i could lie and they'd still eat it up.i bet my numbers would be terrific"

I have no idea about USO campaign, but saw photos of Trump's wife in serbian media, ...a bit of reflected glory probably...so funny, like she is going to lobby for us.

Underneath all that make-up, fake tan, silicone, botox etc...there must be some natural beauty...I hope she does not end up looking like Ivona Trump.


So is it Trump vs Hilary?

Wow, what a combo....

yes i looks like it will be hilary vs trump...
trump seems to be far more controversial and as a result is much more of a hot topic then hilary which in my opinion works to his advantage so i expect him to win the election
trump is however setting himself up to fail making ridiculous promises that will be impossoble to keep.theres no way he will get any of it done when you look at the uphill battle obama had fighting the republicans in congress
his supporters are going to feel like they were lied to and deceived...either way i expect there to be some kind of riot

theoretically yes,politicians do say things just to get votes,but i dont think i have ever heard a politician  or someone running for office  say things like building walls to keep potential illegal immigrants out or to ban an entire religion from entering a country
while i understand the motive behind it,his proposals are idiotic to say the least
how do you know if someone is a muslim or not? so if you look like a muslim or looks like a certain type of ethnicity you cat enter the states?

i dont know so much about that tenez gong on the basis of "better the devil you know then the devil you dont" with hilary you know what to expect....more of the sam  not much will change for american people cause of who she will represent
trump has no previous experience as a politician,he sint a free mason,a scull and bonesman or a part of the bilderberg group

not sure if thats a good or bad thing in his favour or in favour of the american people

well the majoirty of the wars in the last 200-300 years have been instigated by the people who are in the business of war...politicians come and go but the ruling class always remains the same so i dont see how anyone running for office is really going to change that...
a lot of poeple believe that princess dianna was assasinated because her campaigning against mine fields was starting to affect profits
a lot of people also believe that kennedy had his head blown off in public for trying to take back control of the federal reserve
the only way youre gonna stop that devil is if arms companies stop manufacturing weapons,but as long s they do there will always be conflict or a war somewhere

So why do you think Hillary would be better? More than anyone " the people in the  business of war" are supporting her.

@ tenez
its not that i think that hilary is better,its that i think that trump is a lot worse

@NITB not sure but its obvious that hilary has experience runnung a country wheres as trump has none
trumps ego is bigger then his net worth and will be the downfall of him
i dont think the u.s should have a leader who is unfiltered and would offend everyone every time he opens his mouth

i dont know if donald would consider himself lucky that men were wanking to nude pictures of his wife...

there seems to be a lot of similarities between the trump campaign and brexit
he seems to have targeted and is appeal to the people who are angry of not being heard and fed up of being screwed over..when people get fed up they turn extreme as a result many of his supporters come across as xenophobic or perhaps even racist
the fact that he has come this far saying the offensive things that he has been saying and making such outlandish promises speaks volumes about the underlying tone of the way many americans feel

Well...I decided to see what the big deal and fuss was all about:



What can I say....a good looking woman married to a successful businessman!
What a shock!!!

Of course both are hilarious, but what else did anyone expect from US campaign?

Seriously...who cares about her "degree" and speech talents...
Her job is to make her husband happy and she clearly is.

I am sure we won't hear of any oval office "lewinski" type of scandals if Donald wins.

And we can rest assured Melania will never be running for presidency.

Life is too short.

didnt ivana trump divorce donald trump because of his infidelity?
i actually know someone who was competing in one of those pageants that was affiliated with trump,she actually got to meet him last year and told me that he was incredibly flirtatious with a lot of the girls,she said she actually thought that he was being very inappropriate 
its worth noting that she isnt even that attractive,certainly nowhere near as attractive as melania,even though she is much younger 
i dont know how true what she saying is, but as they say,once a cheater always a cheater 
these days people dont just vote for the man/woman running for office,its the entire impression of the family thats supposed to set an example
theres a lot more expectation from the first lady then just to keep her husband happy 
technically she is running for the presidency as she is 1 half of the power couple so questioning her credentials is part and parcel of whether or not she is capable of doing the job

talking about it all being a show...so much of what we see on tv and told in the media is supposedly staged 
the latest conspiracy theory that seems to be gaining real momentum is that the earth is flat...now thats something i cant get my head around  Yikes

I'm gonna try my best to win election for sure, no?

But is also true that Hillary is bery tough opponent, she is dangurus and can be bery aggressive, so is important I keep fighting and stay colm.
USA needs to have good defence for sure, we need to spend money on military and build big wall, so big wall that even my moonballs can't go over it.

The billionaire said he had been hearing "more and more" that the election may not be contested fairly, though he did not elaborate further."

does that mean that the election wasnt constested fairly and that it was rigged?
or does that mean that it can only be rigged if hillary wins ( making him look like a sore loser)
while im aware that many people believe that the first term election in which george bush junior won to become president was rigged through his relative the governor of florida,saying something like could backfire on him cause all his supporters will think.."well if its going to be rigged then why the hell even bother to vote?"

Behind it all: stupid image, outrageous comments, naked posing wife etc is a crafty man laughing at people's reactions.

i think that trumps ego is so massive,that he is used to doing and saying whatever he wants without ever having to answer to anyone or face the consequences or repercussions of his actions
unfortunately for him he is applying for a job where he has to answer and account for every single thing he does or say

I think this whole accountability thing is a myth.

Politicians are biggest criminals and liars. How many of them have ended up in prison?

They are above law. Blair, Bush, Clinton...the lot!

It's us "little" people that are accountable and have to pay every penny of tax and every parking fine...

maybe accountability is the wrong word to use,politicians are definitely judged by the court of public opinion
that may or may not have an impact on how much they get away with but
i was specifically referring to donald trump not politicians per say
my point was that i seriously doubt that anyone who is employed by donald trump would ever tell him what they truly think of him to his face
as a billionaire everyone is always kissing his ass day and night and as a result he must be used to doing and saying whatever he wants,offending whoever he wants without having to answer to anyone cause he is the boss
its different being a president or politician cause people will voice their opinion and the media will certainly be critical too

He is very knowledgeable, and he says Nadal is going to be tremendous in Rio, he's gonna win big league, he's gonna hit his forehand so hard and deport Djokovic from Rio so fast that your head is going to spin, I guarantee you that.
Djokovic shouldn't even be in Rio, with all his doping drugs, Rio has a HUGE problem with drugs pouring across its border, and it needs to be stopped, Brazil needs to take control of its borders.
Low energy Djokovic is totally corrupt and controlled by his UNIQLO lobbyists, we have to compassionately deport all UNIQLO players from Rio because of the risk of radical UNIQLO terrorism, and then those who haven't committed crimes like Nishikori can come back, but if they come back they have to come in legally, ok? Legally

September 11: Donald Trump Says His Policies Would Have Prevented 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

"Those people that knocked down the World Trade Center most likely, under the Trump policy, wouldn't have been here to knock down the World Trade Center," Trump said Wednesday at a Florida rally.

im guessing this would be the "ban all muslims from entering the u.s" policy...
lol

Clint Eastwood: Actor Discusses His Support of Republican Candidate Donald Trump
"He's onto something, because secretly everybody's getting tired of political correctness, kissing up," 

Secretly everybody's getting tired of political correctness ... When I grew up, those things weren't called racist."
Eastwood told Esquire about Trump. Eastwood's son Scott Eastwood was also interviewed.

its surprising that not many of trumps celebrity friends have come out to support him in comparison to hillary who has had a whole loads of hollywood a-listers voicing their support for him
i guess when clint eastwood grew up the "N" word was the appropriate word to use for african americans..

melania comes under fire again,this time over her visa status
trumps whole campaign is built around deporting illegal immigrants,building walls to keep them out and making sure to stop them at boarder controls and here his wife is accused of possibly working illegally back in the 90's
oh the irony of it all!!

more melania trump controversy,looks like she got married for a passport before she married donald trump while claiming on larry king that she had never been married before  prior to marrying trump
melania looking more and more dodgy by the day....
