I say it's "real" because the "poll rigger" won't touch it - the cost is too high, it costs real money. Now you know the real poll number for Trump.


Interesting story: How Trump's brands fade away

Zane Anthony, Kathryn Sanders and David A. Fahrenthold
Washington Post           4/13/2018

Before he ran for office, Donald Trump made millions by selling his name to adorn other people's products. There was Trump deodorant. Trump ties. Trump steaks. Trump underwear. Trump furniture. At one time, there was even a Trump-branded urine test.

Now, almost all of them are gone.

Nov. 28, 2017,

By JEFF HORWITZ, Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — Owners of the Trump International Hotel in Panama are working to strip President Donald Trump's name from the 70-story building and fire the hotel management company run by Trump's family. The property once paid at least $32 million to associate with Trump.

A hundred per cent poll for Trump, open and just and not rigged.

Robert De Niro says “F**k Trump” at Tony Awards

The Radio City Music Hall crowd roared and gave De Niro a standing ovation Sunday night

RACHEL LEAH                 JUNE 11, 2018

bert De Niro was called upon to introduce Bruce Springsteen's musical performance at the 72nd Tony Awards Sunday night, but it was his introduction that was one of the award show's most memorable moments.

"I’m going to say one thing: F**k Trump," De Niro said, full-throated and with bass and bite.

The audience erupted into roars, and the actor pumped his fists in the air. De Niro paused and waited for the applause and cheers to die down so his next words could be heard unequivocally: "It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s f**k Trump."

The crowd at Radio City Music Hall in New York City gave De Niro a sustained, standing ovation for his word choice and political statement, while CBS successfully bleeped out the expletive for the live telecast. In fact, after the show, many viewers watching from home wondered which profanity he used, twice.

But social media cleared it up:

They're still astounded that, right after the election when they took to the streets in a barrage of racism and violence, they got major pushback immediately.  They're astounded that, after years of us tolerating their little fascist groups, anti-fascist groups are striking back with equal vigor.  Frankly they're just astounded about damn, near, everything.

I'm on the fence about them being astounded.  The background radiation of racism and violence is getting noisier, that's all, and if anyone was astounded, it was main stream Republican leadership.  They were astounded that the racists would come out into the light, at all. 

So, Trump signs this vague policy directive to keep families together, and libs are grinning ear-to-ear. Trump lost! Yay!  No, he didn't. This kind of set back galvanizes the base. Americans love a scrappy underdog. "We have to stick up for our man, he needs our support more than ever."

Let's refer to NPR again (my favorite non-comic news source).

That Ohio voter? There's many more out there. I don't think Dems are going to field a viable candidate next election. Unless Trump decides not to run again, I think he's pretty much guaranteed another term.

The new Authoritarian party (of which the hijacked Tea Party of a part of) is what elected Trump.  They don't even know that they're a party but they know they're all-in on Trump.

What remains to be seen is how many of our fellow Americans from the "fly over states", and isn't that just a lovely condescending grouping, were saying "Hell No" to Billery as opposed to slurping his Orange Trumpness.  Every time somebody comes with that "didn't win the popular vote bullshit" I say, "She didn't in the popular vote in OHIO, did she?"

I agree with this. The Democrats can beat Trump in 2020, but only if they field a strong candidate. I don't see one on the horizon, so I hope for a dark horse candidate. Otherwise, I agree; Trump will likely get a second term -- unless he's been indicted or impeached. Mueller remains the wild card, and nobody knows how that will play.

Those who attending Tony Awards were high ranking class of the society. When they had a standing ovation to the barb spoken by De Niro, that De Niro's opinion was greatly approved by them.

This is a reaction to the current situation of US politics. An unqualified person tyrannizes the nation. The government organization, political system can do nothing to him, let alone ordinary people. People are suppressed too much so when De Niro said something they dare not say, he got a big approval.

The Eagles first were going to have most of the players come to the White House, then they said it would be fewer players.  Then wanted to change the date to when the President would be in Singapore.

Finally, they said it would be 2 or 3 players, the Owner and the Team Mascot.

Trump said, Don't bother.

Over the last week, several Trump administration officials and supporters have been publicly shamed. On Friday night, the Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a farm-to-table restaurant in Lexington, Va. That morning, protesters blasted a recording of sobbing migrant kids outside the home of Kirstjen Nielsen, Trump’s secretary of homeland security.

A few days before that, Nielsen left an upscale Mexican restaurant near the White House after protesters confronted her, chanting, “If kids don’t eat in peace, you don’t eat in peace!” The Trump adviser Stephen Miller was also yelled at in a Mexican restaurant — someone called him a fascist, though he may not regard that as an insult. The same night that Sanders was denied service, Pam Bondi, Florida’s Trump-supporting attorney general, was heckled outside a movie theater where she’d gone to see a documentary about Mister Rogers. Adding to the furor, Representative Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, urged people to keep jeering at members of Trump’s cabinet when they’re out and about, saying, “You tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”

People chose Nike and Kaepernick not Trump and his followers.

Nike's Online Sales Soar After Colin Kaepernick Ad Campaign Launches
   
Mary Papenfuss,HuffPost•          September 8, 2018

Nike’s online sales have rocketed since the company revealed that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would be the face of its 30th anniversary “Just Do It” ad campaign. President Donald Trump, who railed against Nike’s homage to the gridiron protester, insisted Wednesday that Nike was “getting absolutely killed with anger and boycotts” because of the ad.

Online sales jumped 27 percent from Sunday through Wednesday, according to Edison Trends, a Silicon Valley digital sales and trends research firm. Nike’s sales decreased 2 percent during the same period last year, according to Edison figures.

Ironically, while the president’s supporters were trash-talking Nike, Trump boasted in an interview with the Daily Caller: “Nike is a tenant of mine. They pay a lot of rent.” Forbes has estimated Nike was paying $13 million a year in rent.

The company’s flagship store was located in Trump Tower but moved out this year for another Manhattan location. Nike’s new landlords are still covering its Trump Tower rent on the Nike lease, which runs until 2022, Bloomberg reported earlier this year.

Some Trump supporters boasted on social media that they’re burning their Nike gear  and even recommended buying Nike shoes “favored by liberals” and torching them — which would help boost Nike’s bottom line

West Hollywood Passes Resolution To Remove Trump’s Star From Walk Of Fame
Mac Slavo                  August 7th, 2018

The neighborhood’s City Council passed the resolution, citing Trump’s “attacks” on “minorities, immigrants” and other groups, West Hollywood Mayor John Duran said a statement to NBC News. “The West Hollywood City Council did not pass the resolution because Donald Trump is a conservative or a Republican. Earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is an honor. When one belittles and attacks minorities, immigrants, Muslims, people with disabilities or women — the honor no longer exists,” Duran said in an email.

Angry Diners Confront Sen. Mitch McConnell at Kentucky Restaurant
   
Alejandro de la Garza,Time•          October 21, 2018

Mitch McConnell was confronted by fellow diners in a Louisville, Ky. restaurant on Friday night in the Senate majority leader’s latest encounter with protesters.

McConnell and his wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao, were dining at Havana Rumba, a popular Louisville Cuban restaurant, when he was accosted by fellow patrons.

One man took McConnell’s to-go box off the table and dumped it on the sidewalk, reported the Courier Journal.

“Why don’t you get out of here?” the man yelled at McConnell according to a video obtained by TMZ. “Why don’t you leave the entire country alone?”
McConnell did not respond, while other patrons told the man to leave.

Earlier that evening, a woman approached McConnell’s table and called him a “traitor” while other patrons in the restaurant clapped, according to the Courier Journal.

The incident is the latest in a string of confrontations McConnell has had with protesters over the last few months. McConnell was confronted by a group opposing the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport earlier this month. He was also accosted after a dinner at Georgetown University in June, and heckled by a group of protesters in Louisville in July.

Thousands signed a letter saying Trump was not welcome in Pittsburgh. He plans to visit anyway.
By Allyson Chiu and Amy B Wang                October 29

More than 35,000 people have signed an open letter to President Trump from the leaders of a Pittsburgh-based Jewish group who say the president will not be welcome in the city unless he denounces white nationalism and stops “targeting” minorities after a mass shooting Saturday at a local synagogue left 11 dead.
