Above is the youtube version of Donald Trump’s speech.  Here is a link to the version on C-SPAN. If you really want to see it, the commentary by the “journalists” lasts about a minute.

Most journalists billed the speech as an Anti Hillary Clinton speech. In fact, what Trump did is compare and contrast a Trump presidency with a Clinton presidency. What was not standard fare for a political campaign is that Trump baldly called Hillary Clinton what she may very well be, “the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency.” He brilliantly laid out the charges. He explained why Hillary Clinton should be standing before a judge in a Federal Court.

If Donald Trump wants to be president, then the main thing I think he should do is use this speech for a blueprint. He should take the main issues he raises in his speech and systematically compare and contrast a Trump presidency with a Clinton presidency.

Otherwise, Trump should just be calm and stop tweeting.  He should focus on the fact most of the voters want what he wants to sell, and the price is right. If he doesn’t make the sale, then it will be because he said more than he needed to say.

Perhaps Trump should review his book, The Art Of The Deal. There has to be something in there about what is required to close a deal.



  1. I have to agree with you Tom. As you know I am no Trump fan but I thought his speech on Hillary was a game changer and he should not let up. Sooner or later the MSM is going to have to address the points he’s bringing up and which we on theRight have been hollering about for years. If nothing else, Trump is good at highlighting issues other Republicans just can’t or won’t seem to talk about.

    1. When we play cards, we have to play the cards we are dealt. Some games allow us to try to improve our hand, but we rarely get exactly what we want.

      So we have a choice between Trump and Clinton. Those are the cards in our hand, and we cannot trade them in. We have to play either one or the other or fold.

      Definition: If you fold your hand in poker, you lay down your cards and stop playing the hand. You are out. You give it up. Folding in poker means you are out for that hand.

  2. Donald Rumsfeld made a comment that in my opinion, every voter should consider when they vote.

    “Hillary Clinton is a known known. Donald Trump is a known unknown.”

    I discern this statement to relate this to this question we voters have to decide.

    Should we vote for someone we believe is a liar, or risk that Trump will succeed in his promises to make our nation great again.

    1. We know that THE Donald is a law abiding businessman.

      We know that Hillary Clinton is “world-class liar” and as corrupt as the millennia is long.

      Just because THE Donald is unknown to Rumsfeld and the rest of the Ruling Class, doesn’t mean that THE Donald is an unknown.

      1. Good point! Nevertheless, we have yet to see how Trump would behave in a high political office.

        The Donald is an unknown in the sense that he has never held political office. That is important, but, frankly, given what Hillary Clinton has done to abuse the public trust, it should not be a serious factor. What should matter is whether people believe Trump is honest.

        Unfortunately, Trump’s language and his propensity for savaging his opponents has not highlighted the best parts of his character. From here on out, he must conduct himself in a more disciplined manner. His core supporters may stick to him no matter what he says, but that is not the majority of the electorate.
