    Chris,
    You must love being a political cartoonist these days…so much material they almost write themselves.

    But they do need your fantastic artwork.

    “Obstructus Vaginae”

    That is too awesome…I may have to start using that…

    • Otto Didact

      “Obstructus Vaginae”

      Or as the Brits might put it “knotted knickers syndrome”.

  • Gundo

    Funny, Trump owns all that top-dollar real estate…and Megyn Kelly lives in his head, rent-free.

    Seeing as Trump’s the one still bitching, weeks later. Gee, what a great quality, in a prospective leader.

    Cruz Control all the way.

    • KenH

      Ya think he might be doing that on purpose, to have her have a complete spazoid meltdown on camera?…..

      Donnie’s a bit smarter than people think

      • Desert Lion

        Doubtful, but we’ll see.

      • rooftop voter

        LOL, I love how people think Donald got to be a multi-billionaire by not knowing how to play the game.

        Theater is as important to good leadership as knowledge is…………..

        • Gundo

          I love how people think Trump is some sort of self-made success story.

          He inherited over 37k rental units in NYC. He’d be just about as rich with prudence and compound interest, as by going repeatedly bankrupt with mostly other people’s money.

      • I seriously doubt that.

    • nonncom

      I agree….Trump needs to move on….good lord, that was weeks ago…how thin skinned is he?….we’ve got one of those in the office now, we don’t need another….mr. “I’m never wrong” and it’s everybody else’s fault…CNN must be afraid of Fiorina as they structured the debate format to exclude her using polls going back to July….she’s got my vote as of now….things could change….long way to go…Cruz screwed up last night not answering a question asked of him, a legitimate one at that…too bad….I like him…he never answered how he would deal with the illegals in this country if he were elected…Trump may be off his rocker, but at least he has a stance on the issue…

    • Indiana Mike

      Kelly went after him with both barrells, and bra cups, last night on her screed ridden show. PC is ending thanks to Trump. As it does, more people will begin saying that they too see the Emperor has no clothes.

      • Gundo

        There’s a difference between ‘being PC’ and just having a normal human allotment of dignity.

  • Totally symbiotic…ya got fox logos and fox stories all over nbabcbs, how much is ailes & co. loving that? As for the D, let me say it again, all PR is good PR, he’s on every screen and lip in the land, and his numbers just keep on climbing; wouldn’t be surprised if this is all part of the plan.

    Might backfire though; Trump might get the nom, and then with the disaster in the commie camp, he might take the gen, and then he’s gonna look around and say…oh shit this ain’t Reality this is REALITY!

    • Of course there’s that possibility of a monkey in the woodpile (thanks a lot Spin Drift). If MO goes in she’ll get the dim nom for sure; can you imagine rhetoric of a MO/DT “race”? Simian remarks, slavedriver charges, gender wars, best hair comparisons…and she’d carry the gen with a fair share of support from aisle crossers not to mention cross dressers.

      Sounds incredible and funny, but it ain’t neither. What a world we have wrought.

      • Spin Drift

        Remember that her Cankleness is not out of it yet. I wish that his Toupeeness would hammer her instead of Miss Kelly. By the way, if there ever was a case of Vaginae Obstructinus, Slick Willies got it. Oh the Huma-namity!

    Well, you guys can do all the sexist pig disclaimers you like. I’m enjoying the abs ad in the sidebar. A girl’s gotta have some fun, y’know.

      • Delilah T

        On the right hand side, you nitwit.

        • Heh! Well, you never know side one plays for these days…not that there’s anything wrong with that.

          And calling someone else a nitwit is the quickest way to expose your own lack of any wit, or humor. Get some.

  • I will keep saying this over and over again until it finally sinks in.

    http://www.arbiterofcommonsense.blogspot.com/2015/08/trumpettes.html

    Oh, and for the record, I don’t watch FoxNews and haven’t had cable or satellite service in over five years. Also for the record… my guy is Ted Cruz (I put a Cruz 2016 sticker on my car a year before he even announced he was running).

    • Bill G

      I’m with you; and I’m with him to the extent that I’ve been referring to Donny Boy’s supporters as trumpettes for a while.

      • I like Trump-humpers myself. 🙂

    • Desert Lion

      “I put a Cruz 2016 sticker on my car a year before he even announced he was running”

      Really? Sounds remarkably like, “I’ve made up my mind and won’t be confused with facts.” Don’t get me wrong – most of the candidates have their strong points, including Cruz. Any of the 17 would be better than what’s there now or any of the current choices on that side. There’s not one that fully lines up with my description of the perfect candidate. That leaves the question of which diverges the least on the most important issues, and whether there is a chance that person can avoid the traps that have killed Republican candidates for the last several elections. I do think this election is one for the Republican to lose given how well “fundamentally transform” has worked out and the idiocy of the positions being spewed. I also thought that last time, and we know how that turned out.

      Until someone promises the party has learned how not to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, I’ll keep evaluating candidates until I absolutely have to punch a primary ballot. I refuse to get fatalistic about it and rant about how elections don’t matter, that it’s all pre-decided by some evil power structure, but it’s not hard to understand how some get frustrated enough to go there.

    • rooftop voter

      Couple of things Trubador:

      1: Perot in 1992 was going to win the whole shebang, and as he realized what was happening, then and only then did he tank himself by inventing his daughters threat and dropping out, only to hop back in to assure Poppy Bush didn’t win ( and he didn’t deserve to ). Further proof of his role as nothing more than a spoiler was his pick of a VP candidate.

      Is it your contention that Trump is doing the same? Nah, I didn’t think so.

      2: I am fully on board with you about Cruz. He would be a better choice for President than any of the other candidates. That being said, he cannot win, because he cannot keep his mouth shut about religion. His views do not bother me, but then I am right of Goldwater, however, a successful candidate MUST draw form a broad spectrum of voters, and any that can be made to look like a religious extremist will lose more than enough voters to assure the loss.

  • 1.) I see no sign of Ms. Kelly getting all discombobulated over Trump’s tantrums.
    Kinda makes ya wonder about the thickness of Donald’s skin, considering how hi-power
    A bidness dude he’s supposed to be.
    2.) The biggest problem with this all Trump, all the time show is it sucks all the air out of the room. No mere mortal among the other candidates can get any traction in
    The shadow of that hair. The MSM minimizes all others by concentrating on Donald,
    So if (when) he augers in, all attention goes to the Dems. Very little coverage of Carson,
    Cruz, Walker, etc. Even of the RINOs, so folks with know how bad they are.
    So just sit back you peasants, and enjoy the circus. We adults will deccide who will
    Rule you. We know what’s best for you, after all. . . . .

    • First let me say that at this juncture I think that a Cruz/Carson ticket would be awesome; time will tell if they can carry the load.

      But as to the air being sucked out of the room, that’s not a problem, it’s a feature. I know your last line was intended as sarcasm but it rings a bit too true of the pub wingtip faction; they’ve been picking their company man for us, aided and abetted by the lib machine (but I repeat myself) for the last few cycles; let the fuckers suffocate.

      Even for the boys with some conservative cred, to paraphrase Ms. Kelly (herself just another cog in that machine): if they can’t handle the Donald, how are they gonna handle RICKI (Russia/Isis/China/Korea/Iran)?

      Let ’em play. What seems destructive is in fact constructive and instructive. And entertaining as hell; when’s the last time you could say that about politickin”?

      • eon

        if they can’t handle the Donald, how are they gonna handle RICKI (Russia/Isis/China/Korea/Iran)?

        To borrow a term from John Ringo and David Weber, they are “creatures off the deal”. They believe that they can barter with anyone to get what they want (a continuation of their power), never mind what the other side’s objectives are.

        One of their more dangerous delusions is the “it’s all just rhetoric” one. They are certain that since they habitually lie and do the opposite of what they claim they believe in, they assume everyone else does to. When they say that (for example) the Iranians’ screeds about “Death To The Great Satan” are “just rhetoric”, they mean that the mullahs don’t really mean it, and that they can “get a deal” with them on oil, etc. All they have to do is “give up” Israel, and they never liked Jews much to begin with. Plus, they’re sure that the mullahs don’t include them in the “Great Satan” classification.

        They act the same way with Putin, Mini-Kim, the old men in Beijing, etc. Even down to the more radically anti-civilization elements of the deep-ecology crowd. “It’s all just rhetoric”, they say.

        They overlook the small detail that the older definition of rhetoric, “speech intended to convey a position or belief” is the one still in use by practically everyone other than themselves . And that the belief systems they are dealing with (Islamism, Communism, Fascism, Gaiaism) call for their adherents to pursue goals our “really smart people” can’t believe anyone else would seriously believe in.

        In short, they constantly make the mistake of assuming that since they rarely if ever “mean what they say”, everyone else does likewise.

        The most dangerous mistake you can make with a fanatic is assuming he doesn’t really believe what he claims to. The second most dangerous mistake is not taking him seriously because he is a fanatic.

        Some people aren’t interested in “the deal”.

        clear ether

        • NotYetInACamp

          Fanatics have no intention of keeping the deal.

          Progressive take the resolution of a conflict to begin the neww attack on the deal for the next progressive victory.

          Muslims won Medina (or was it Mecca?) by making a ten year deal with the dominant tribe. Five years in the Muslims under the prophet Mohamed rose up, broke the deal, and slaughtered the formerly dominant tribe in the area. The prophet says to lie and cheat the non Muslim.

          It’s tough making deals with so many these days.

        • All truth there, eon, but my statement you quoted was actually in response to JohninMd’s complaint about Trump’s antics getting all the attention and taking air and air time from the other pub contendahs.

          My point was that while choking off the rinos is all good, the failure of even the few real cons to break through and rise above the noise of the Donald does not bode well for their perceived ability to command credence and attention if/when they have a chance to shout down and face down the RICKI’s on the world stage.

          Again using Reagan as the standard, can you imagine his response to the current circus? The Donnie show would become the Ronnie show mighty quick, and nobody would be laughing, least of all the dirtballs and despots of the world.

          A world-class politician and leader; that’s what’s lacking on that stage, and why a game-show host right now looks like the boss.

  • RayNAiken

    I have watched many a presidential campaign over the years and this one has been the most fun. For the first time I’m seeing arrogant pissant politicians squirm like they never have. They have no idea how to get themselves out of the fix they didn’t know they were in.
    Thank you Mr. Trump and a big thank you Chris.

    • capn

      I’ll second those thoughts Ray. Entertained indeed.

  • Noelegy

    “We don’t think with our vaginas.”

    No matter what Democrats would have us think.

  • Calvin

    Trump IS a successful business man and that has to require a thick skin at times. I’m thinking that Trump is kind of like General Patton is that sometimes you have to put on a show for your peers and subordinates. Kind of the DI who will burn your ass with words before sending you out to run, later he will be laughing his ass off about what you did with his fellow DIs. Trump has effectively neutralized Megyn Kelly for good or bad. He has also put other journalists on notice that he can do the same thing to them.

  • You must admit, anyone following this mess is both entertained and thought inspired.

    • BlaxPac

      Not really: Entertainment accessibility (not to be confused with content, per se) has improved since the time Trump entered the scene in the late 80’s.

      From a political standpoint, I am neutral on Trump the Politician (yeah, he is one, his denials be damned)… his plans on certain key issues of the day like Foreign Policy, Economics, etc tend to have less meat on the bone than a Reagan Conservative would be comfortable to chew on.

      His Immigration plan belongs to Sessions really…before that, it was “Build a wall, and make Mexico pay for it”…ummm, okay, how? :crickets:

      But as for Trump the Entertainer…well, lets say reigniting a feud over something that happened weeks ago, even though you “won” popularly, seems to be the kind of person we’ve been trying to vote OUT of office since 2012, does it not?

      • nonncom

        I said the same thing above, almost word for word….didn’t mean to step on your post….

  • capn

    Because I missed the closing of the comments yesterday ….

    The Republic YOU never knew, you mean – don’t you?

    I remember it well. It was 1952. Eisenhower was in the White House. I was 7 years old, …

    And in 1952 I was four learning how to ice skate at Elmendorf AFB, Anchorage, AK. Dad was a career USAF Officer.

    What happened to all of those years Delilah T? Whoosh – gone.
    Although some of them I actually remember fondly.

    • Olddog

      As I recall Ike won the 1952 election and became president in 1953. During those years the top tax rate was 90% and we were all scared shitless of the A bomb. But it still seems better than now.

      • Gyro

        90% tax rate, but with enough loopholes that a capable accountant could take you down to an effective rate of 35% with little difficulty. That’s the one small detail that liberals leave out when they say we had a booming economy with a 90% tax rate in the 50s.

  • LifeofTheMind

    It is not personal with Megyn Kelly. Trump today threw the Univision reporter out of the room for acting unprofessionally. Arguably Trump stood up for the rights of the other reporters who were losing their time to the grandstander who interrupted. If Trump is smart he will now make a point of taking tough questions from a serious journalist.

  • Cliff

    Trump is a phenomenom. He is brash and supremely confidant. The big question is can we trust him? Do we know him? Ms Kelly can not hurt us. I would tend to leave her alone. A president has enormous power. Much like an elected king. By the way Biden leads all Republicans in head to head races in swing states.

    • Joel

      Yes, Ms Kelly and the MSM can hurt us if they saddle us with a bum like Bush. And the day she got back, she couldn’t help her self and sent a snarky tweet after Trump. Trump responded in kind.

      • Yeah, let’s gang up on Kelly because she didn’t suck up to Trump.

        Let’s turn it around. If Trump can’t handle harsh questions from a Fox employee like Kelly, he’s going to have a really bad time during the actual election and the MSM.

    • “Trump is a phenomenom. He is brash and supremely confidant. The big question is can we trust him? Do we know him?”

      What could we trust about Obonzo? What were we allowed to know about our Hopenchangey Hubshi?

      What do we know about “Barry” Soebarkah, citizen in good standing of the Republic of Indonesia and unable to pass an E-Verify check to confirm his eligibility for employment in these United States?

    • rooftop voter

      We trust him more than most any other candidate……

      As for Biden leading in swing states, that’s a gimme. Biden hasn’t uttered a word in public for months. After his first press conference, those numbers swing the other way.

      • rooftop voter

        Just so it is clear, mu post was responding to Cliff, not Tucci78’s excellent observation.

    • And, no, we can’t trust Trump. Or hasn’t anyone here actually looked up his positions & contributions over the last 15-20 years?

  • Bill G

    More headlines for Donny Boy, any time he raises the issue.

  • Pamela

    Donnie keeps yammering about how Megyn wasn’t nice to him.
    He’s how old?
    Doc Damon… What makes you think she wears panties

    • BlaxPac

      Not at all sure, Pamela…But as a healthy male I’d be glad to volunteer to check and see…

      All for the sake of accuracy in reporting, of course.

  • Not with their vaginas. With their uteri.

    Where d’you think the word “hysteric” came from?

  • rooftop voter

    Chris, the deal yesterday with Ramos is perfect for your interpretation, please tell us you are working on it………

  • B Woodman

    I see The Donald as a catalyst.

    Here we have a room full of politicians, some good (Cruz), and some not-so-good (Yeb!). If it weren’t for The Donald, we would be seeing the same ol’ same ol’ as we did last presidential cycle, a bunch of RINOs being herded by the DeM-S-M into selecting the one candidate that would allow Teh One (O’Bozo) to win by a plurality (NOT a majority).

    But now with Donald acting as a fox in the hen coop, upsetting the social order, the DeM-S-M don’t know what to do, how to act, what to think.

    And the politicians running for presidency see that it is ok to step outside the usual norms of politeness and banality, without being afraid of being called “meany” and “raaaacist”. They can say what they mean, and mean what they say, and will have to rise and fall on their own merits and demerits, without a lot of the social cover usually provided by the DeM-S-M.

    So, even though I wouldn’t vote for Trump, I say, good for The Donald!

  • Unca Walt

    I LOVE the back-and-forth between Trump and Kelly.

    Coming Soon To A TV Near You:

    TRUMP: “So, Maig… you gonna vote for me?”

    KELLY (in fury): “Hell, no!! You…”

    TRUMP: “So I guess a blow job is out of the question?”

    • NotYetInACamp

      Ah. the varying aspects of humor. 🙂 that’s funny.
      He would say that at one of his past roast, but, I possibly think not now. But that he just might is exquisite.

    • Grunt GI

      Glad I already had my morning coffee..that was too damn funny.

  • steveb919

    Personally I think Trump is a breath of fresh air. Kicks the RINO’s right in the ass as well is the Democrats. He will get my vote, hopefully with Cruz as a running mate. I don’t care which one is the top dog.

  • Pamela

    Kindergartners are better behaved than Donnie.
    I’d say he needs a some discipline, but he might like it too much.

    • NotYetInACamp

      But you do see that Donald did learn everything one really needs to know in kindergarten.
      He just still applies it when someone misbehaves. Most of the rest of us don’t. From the lessons of little children we learn how to behave. He may need a slight refresher course, but he has got it down.

      Just don’t take HIS toys without his permission.

    • NotYetInACamp

      OK The discipline part is funny.
