During Greta Van Susteren’s lapdog town hall with Donald Trump, the candidate boasted about how much more presidential he will be if elected. Then, moments later, he started whining that he had been introduced only as “candidate” and not “the front runner.” Yeah, that’s really presidential.
Van Susteren did ask a few semi-challenging questions, such as, “You’ve gotten a lot of criticism for your tone and tenor. Is it going to change or do you have no objection to it?”
Trump replied with just the kind of elementary-school maturity that, alone, ought to disqualify him for public office.
TRUMP: Yes, tone to me matters. Being presidential matters.
…You know what happens? What happens is, they hit me and I hit ‘em back harder. And usually, I mean, almost in all cases, they do it first. But they hit me and I hit them back harder and they disappear. And that’s what we want to lead the country. But I promise you. Let me finish it off, I will be so presidential that you will be so proud of me.
You know, I’m a smart guy, being presidential’s easy.
Not surprisingly, Van Susteren did not press Trump about his “they started it first” excuse. If Trump feels dissed by Vladimir Putin, is he going to drop a nuke to make him “disappear?” Nor did Van Susteren ever challenge Trump on his wildly inappropriate and very, very un-presidential tenor in tweets about Megyn Kelly. Even As they discussed whether or not he would continue using Twitter in the White House.
TRUMP: As president, I would be very much different on that. I wouldn’t be doing it much… maybe not doing it at all.
Or, maybe he would.
TRUMP: I have millions and millions of people, they rely on it. They love it. And I think it’s one of the reasons, frankly, I’m doing so well.
But getting a woman to help showcase Trump just when he’s having woman problems was not enough ego massage for him.
TRUMP: You understand, when you introduced me, you said “candidate.” But I’m really by far the front runner, OK? By far. (Turning to the audience) She didn’t say that. I was surprised. I was gonna say “Let’s do that introduction again, but I didn’t want to do that.”
Of course, Van Susteren gave him a pass on that, too.

Feel free to let Trump know how you feel about him @RealDonaldTrump
I’m seriously burned out battling it. As a coder myself it offends me the many bad and nonstandard practices it uses. It’s a complete p.o.s.
And now she has been leashed.
It looks like markdown, only markdown uses 2 asteriks – whatever you write – 2 asteriks to bold, 1 asterisk giving you italic.
While you’re at it, could you direct me to some page with all the explications (or, at least, tell how to make italics).
The people of Possum Holler is watchin’ you Van however you say yo name!
Best you tread lightly!
So, let’s try this:
(asterisk)example(asterisk) should look like example if you replace the (asterisk) with the actual symbol.
There doesn’t seem to any pre-determined length of material that will bold, but hitting the “enter” key does seem to break the bolding.
The downside, though, is you can’t really display how to do it without bolding the example without showing the steps you used to bold the material. Will try, though.
- / / example / / * (If this worked correctly, the word “example” shouldn’t be bolded. If so, just type what’s there but no spaces or slashes.)
< strong > Let’s try with “strong” < / strong >
<strong>Let’s try with “strong”</strong>
I have yet to hear anything presidential come from that pie-hole.
- Could someone please remind me how to make the letters bold? TIA

Where is Lt. Col. Frank Slade when you need to topple those ivory towers?
It sounds to me like Drumpf is saying, basically, that we want a pugilist as president.
To my recollection, we’ve only had one: Theodore Roosevelt — I’m not certain that that’s a good idea, as Roosevelt’s pugilism resulted in his being blind in his left eye for the last 14 years of his life . . . additionally, Roosevelt was, for all his faults, well-rounded: he had been a scholar, cattleman, soldier, NYC Police Commissioner, NY governor, and Vice President — all before assuming office at age 42.
I don’t recall Drumpf “hitting back” any of the creditors who sued him any harder than they hit him
Trump may have crossed that boundary.
But come on!! Not before the convention!!
I want Trump to be the orange haired snowball in hell after the convention.
