    Hatred, arrogance and narcissism has driven the DUers over the edge. It seems to be a common problem among Democrats.

    I think I finally figured out why the orange creature ran for President.



    It was either jail, death or become President. While we claim the person holding the office of President is not above the law, that's not completely true.

    I'm not saying anything most of DU don't already know. I'm not that smart. So here goes.

    orange man baby is connected to the mob. He does hotels real estate and casinos, all mob havens. He has had many bankruptcies which kind of reduced him to getting money from shady places, like Russia. All that leads to the cops and FBI watching you. It's very unlikely he has not done anything illegal. Of course he has.

    The only way to not go to jail or be offed is to become President. There, not only does he have lots of power, he can change the rules. He has yet to act like a President but he sure has used it's power to benefit his interests.

    Now he bought himself the Presidency he might still end up in jail. Or dead. It's never a good idea to piss off the Russian mob oops leaders.

    2. I don't think Trump's ego and arrogance

    Would have allowed him to see himself as vulnerable to getting caught this early in the game. It's always their arrogance that brings people like this down, their flaunting of the rules and the enforcers.

    It is starting to look like maybe the Russians planted the seed in Trump's head that he could actually become President years ago and have been encouraging/helping/ensnaring him along the way. This is all part of a big Russian effort to destabilize the west.
    And they got WAY more than they ever hoped for in the unhinged Democrats.

    At his age he could afford to wait out the mob. His presidential run was merely a publicity stunt gone horribly wrong. It’s really that simple. He was trying to squeeze NBC for more money in his contact negotiations for a new season of The Apprentice. He threatened to quick the popular show and run for President—again—instead. A guaranteed headline-grabber.

    NBC had seen all Trump’s bullshit before and called his bluff. Then Trump made the ‘Mexican are rapists’ comment and NBC found themselves holding all the cards. They fired him. Trump now found himself exposed. Admit that it was all a ruse? Beg to be taken back? It’s not in his character. Instead, he opted to play along, knowing full well that he’d stand no real chance of ever being nominated. It would be a glorious months-long self promotional tour for his next gig, whatever that may be.

    Things quickly began to go off the rails and people were taking to his campaign. But no worries, he’d never beat Hillary Clinton, right?

    The rest is history. Sad, dark history.

    7. The Cambridge Analytica whistleblower says that CA developed the entire campaign. Trump came later.

    This needs looking into. Mercer and Russian money funded the development of a presidential campaign - complete with slogans like Make America Great Again and Build the Wall and Lock Her Up.

    THEN they found a candidate to read the script. Apparently it was not originally going to be Trump.

    15. I beg to disagree. Trump ran for president, as he had done before, purely for the free PR.

    He didn't expect to win. If he hadn't won, he'd still be below the radar. Winning was his biggest mistake.

    28. I think the Russians used Cheeto to mess up our elections

    Certainly Michael Cohen had to be involved in all of this, now that we're learning about his connections to the Russian mob. But as for Trump's motive - yes I agree with you - it was the free publicity that he CRAVES. He never thought he'd actually win, he just wanted a new reality show franchise out of it.

    16. My theory has always been Russian sanctions

    trump borrowed a lot of money from Russian oligarchs. They also have some sex related video on him. Both make him blackmailable. I suspect he was not the only R in the primary the Russians had their sights on. Get someone they could control. They wanted those sanctions gone and unfettered access to the oil pipeline.

    To pull off something like this, you need a lot of people. People talk.

    This is why I laugh when people spout the Clinton (name your conspiracy here) as the gospel truth. For them to do everything they have been accused of thousands of people had to help them. People brag. Hell. Bill couldn't even have sex in the oval office with an intern, without the whole world knowing about it. But they believe that the Clintons were drug runners, killed scores of people, Hillary is a lesbian, who has sex with Anothe man to father Chelsea. In Cahoots with terroists to take over America, funneled weapons to the contras, and more, without anyone bragging. Maybe they did but the FBI is all under control of the Clintons and none of them will spill the beans.

    18. Money, money, money!

    Trump could not maintain his lifestyle without the support he had gained from the Russians and their need to launder billions of dollars theough his real estate company. Trump owed Putin. Putin and other Trump backers saw an ignorant man whom they planned to manipulate. They didn’t all necessarily want the same things, but they all knew that Trump is corrupt to his soul and would do nothing to jeopardize their ability to protect their illegal acquisition of even more money. The income from the Trump Organization may not be enough to support Trump and his children in the lavish lifestyle they prefer, so he needs off-the-books ways to bring in money. The presidency was a way to set up quid pro quo relationships with governments willing to swap loans (Saudi Arabia and Jared Kushner maybe) for favorable U.S. treatment. The Mercers saw another path to establish their form of government. Putin saw a way to get his man in the White House, although that has not worked out so well for him because Trump became even more of a megalomaniac with his election and perhaps believes that he is now more important than Putin. If Trump were as rich as he claims, he could simply have retired to Mar-a-Lago and played golf, which is clearly what he prefers doing most of the time—but his ego was too stoked by the idea of being the most powerful man in the world that he could not resist the idea of becoming president. He was too stupid to understand that he would be expected to actually do the job.

    31. No!

    Most of us want to see him publicly humiliated, along with his greedy "kids" and hauled off to prison. Take the bastard down, along with the gop members who were all taking Russian money, and now have to protect the slimebag.
    And the movers and shakers of the Democrat Party and the Russians are laughing hysterically at how EASY it is to play the rank and file Democrats.

    I think I finally figured out ...
    When a DU member (or similar Prog) leads off a rant with that phrase, sit back and grab some , because something outrageously ludicrous follows.
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!

    So Trump did not want to be president but rigged the election anyway so he could win or Hillary was such a horrible candidate that she lost to someone trying to throw the election. Which is it DUmmies?

    " He does hotels real estate and casinos, all mob havens."
    The Mafia lost pretty much all of their control over casinos decades ago, especially once the police began really cracking down on them in the 80's and corporations took control of everything in Las Vegas and restructured it all to make it more family- friendly.
