    This the latest pro trump ad released by the hilarity campfail.

    She is showing all the corrupt elitists from the rnc saying nasty things about trump, and his whole campaign is based on blasting these idiots, and he has kicked the ass of each one of them. She is just making his case for him and associating herself with the rnc establishment and a bunch of losers. I cant believe how crap she is, its like she wants to lose.

    Anyone who wants to see trump win will get a good laugh from it, and you anti-trumpers losers, well never mind eh.

    Even if NATO did not provide cover for the rebels by destroying government defenses through airstrikes and Cruise missles, Libya would have descended into the same kind of chaos as we have in Syria today with even more human misery. It's simply wishful thinking that Kadafi would have stabilized the situation and returned the country to normalcy.
    The intervention took place when he gained the advantage and he was in the process of putting down the insurgency.

    He was also willing to negotiate, and there could have been a peaceful solution, but clinton herself blocked all negotiations as she is a warmongering loon.

    As this pillock already conceded, a Clinton presidency would be a better choice for most Americans. After all their concerns are jobs, health care, family leave, equal pay for equal work, climate change, rebuilding a crumbling infrastructure, quality affordable education, strong gun control measures. But these concerns are insignificant because there is one chance in a million that a goatherd may be vaporized by a drone in an imaginary war that Clinton may start because she is probably a neo-con masquerading as a progressive Democrat.

    Brainwashed American idiots.
    First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.

    Trump, Ryan to Meet Next Week

    Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan have agreed to meet next week, but the presumptive Republican presidential nominee doesn't seem particularly enthusiastic.

    Trump said that he had "no idea'' if the talks to bridge the party's divide over his nomination would succeed and that it didn't really matter that much to him.

    Trump needs the Party on his side.
    He needs the Party money.
    He needs the Party organization.
    He needs the Party donors.

    He may be the presumptive winner of the nomination and as such the presumptive head of the Party, but Ryan is the keeper of the keys--elected, the constitutionally installed as the Speaker of the House and the third in line for the Presidency. He also has to represent a lot of "down ballot" Senate and House seats that are in jeopardy because of Trump, so you can bet he matters. He and the other Old Guard may just let this election go this cycle, as critical as it is, because with Trump the Republican Party may never have another cycle if he wins, and they know it.

    As a republican is he currently 2nd in line under a democratic administration?

    If he will only be 2nd in line after the January inauguration of 1st in line presumptive Trump then he must currently be 3rd in line...

    Thankyou MrG.

    So it is possible to end up with a Dem government with a Rep president and vice versa? And has this ever happened?

    Well I have taken it upon myself to google the answer.

    I wonder why they bother with having a line of succession 20 long. Maybe in case of a zombie virus outbreak.

    And you still don't understand.

    The President is part of the government.

    We currently have a Republican-run Senate and House of Representatives, and a Democratic president.

    They form the Legislative and Executive branches of the government respectively. The third (Judicial) branch is the Supreme Court and lower courts.

    Don't worry, you're not the only struggling with the basics.

    Trump Taps Key Aides for Would-be White House Transition

    The presumptive U.S. Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, is beginning to tap key advisers for a move to the White House, should he win the November national election.

    The billionaire real estate mogul on Monday named New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, one of the Republican presidential challengers Trump defeated in his months-long campaign for the nomination, to serve as chairman of his transition team if he wins the election as the successor to President Barack Obama.

    Did everyone think Christie has been standing behind Trump for his health? Of course Trump had a designated spot that they both agreed to weeks ago.

    Palin will also be tapped on the shoulder soon, no matter what people say.

    Yeah, all of the cabinet members are on the list. That surprised me. Looks like the whole purpose is to ensure succession of the current regime.
