Kagro in the Morning - August 23, 2016

David Waldman has some news for you today. Turns out, Donald Trump is pretty much a louse. That is, he’s a small parasitic insect, as well as a contemptible, unpleasant person. Sad!

Donald Trump jacked up his campaign’s Trump Tower rent once somebody else was paying it. Donald Trump sticks with the Trump brand, and Trump profits, throughout his campaign. Corey Lewandowski has his hand out too. The Trump campaign avoids black voters because Trump voters tend to avoid black people.

The Clinton Foundation could be shut down for resembling impropriety, shutting down the good it does as well.

In Texas, the Republican-led state legislature slashed funding to reproductive healthcare clinics, and the maternal mortality rate doubled.

David Waldman, only gone for a week, now comes back to such a different world. Donald Trump, Trumped by nimble navigators, serves up pivot cakes, passes out Play-Doh, and creates a safe space for bigots and racists, who are now free at last from political correctness. John Stoehr has about a hundred questions not being asked about Hillary Clinton.

Greg Dworkin is back too, with news and polls. Why is Donald Trump sticking with a 1980’s style campaign? Trumpism is a politics of loss and revenge, but what do Trumpists really want? A white nationalist media empire? A lifestyle magazine? A golf course? Or just to watch the world burn? Whatever it is, Donald will take a piece of it home.

Aw, a 12 year old Trump, isn’t he cute?

An "encore performance" of our August 17, 2015 episode!

David Waldman says he will be “on vacation” next week. He might be being sarcastic, but he still won’t be here. David and KITM return August 22! 

Donald Trump gaslights the mainstream media, and his surrogates, representatives, and supporters, again, with “sarcasm”. 

Greg Dworkin and the polls assure us that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump remain several points and hundreds of miles apart. Many people are saying that Hillary will win, and Donald will lose. So, is it too soon to sample the yummy victory? Hillary Clinton offers no concessions to Republicans. Even Obamacare can’t rile some Republicans like it used to.

Donald Trump will have something to say today, and might pick up a few votes, but still more will understand where he is coming from, and what he actually sounds like. Trump’s crazy talk still matters. Donald Trump’s hidden vote looks to stay well hidden, although some surface now and then.

Wait, there’s more Trump crazy: Donald Trump says he gives his workers childcare, but he was wrong… but maybe he was just being sarcastic. Trump Tried To Get Bush’s Labor Secretary To Attend His Get-Rich-Quick Seminar. Trump staffer pulls a gun on colleagues, and ends up resigning.

Yes, the House is in play. David looks at the down ballot opportunities.

Simone Manuel’s Olympic gold is also a victory over swimming’s racist history.

David Waldman backs away from the mic to make way for another clash of the titans: The Greg Dworkin v. Armando debate on the evils of both-sides-ism and whether Donald Trump is crazy stupid or stupid crazy.

Inside Donald Trump’s meltdown. Hugh Hewitt gives it his best. What to remember when the “Trump Comeback” narrative begins in the media.

With both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump making the election about Donald Trump, the polls are looking very good for Hillary Clinton. 269 electoral votes—1 short of the magic number—are Likely or Safe Democratic. Is it OK for Hillary Clinton to accept endorsements from those she (and we) disagree with? What concessions should Hillary make to the Republicans at this point?

Jill Stein is not an authentic progressive alternative.

A 23rd lien was just filed against a Donald Trump-run golf club. Michael Jackson didn’t return a call for comment. In 2007, Trump was forced to face his own lies, and he did, 30 times.

But, what is Donald Trump really like?
