    Okay I have to ask, why is this actually a thing?
    Is there a joke? Is this one big comedy skit, or a Pro-Trump meme compilation thread?
    Don't rope me into this please, I just wanna know while still having nothing to do with this mess of an election.

    Arlong and Deathmob are actually serious Trump supporters.

    Most of us here aren't I imagine.

    Well Trump is the only viable alternative. I mean you aren't seriously going to vote for the woman who once FIRED HERSELF because her incompetence and stupidity got innocent Americans killed... are you? Cause that would seriously be insane. No matter what possible thing you can say about Trump... there really isn't any way at all to top that. Trump has never had to fire himself from a job because his actions resulted in dead people.
    Well Trump is the only viable alternative.

    let's see
    Trump is trying to 'build a wall'
    will force Mexican government to pay for it.
    And he dose not know what "blind trust" is
    and he never realised his tax returns... AND he uses public funds for private uses...
    AND YOU THINK HE IS BEST!
    YOU INSANE BRO!

    Honestly I just don't see any reason to vote for him. I used to dislike the two equally: Trump was a fool and Hillary dishonest. But now, Trump is beginning to tell as many if not more lies than Hillary.
    Just in the recent debate between the two it was counted by one article (probably leaned left, to be fair) that Trump said around 34 things that were either wrong, misleading, or complete lies. Ironically Hillary had much less.
    A good example is when he denied saying that "global warming is a chinese hoax" during the debate, but it's pretty obvious he did if you literally just go through his twitter:

    image


    Not to mention him lying about the Iraq war. While there are sources showing his public support for the Iraq war before we went in, all he had was "ask Sean Hannity".
    The article he cites about him being against the war was when they were already a year in.
    There's him refusing to release his tax returns, and blaming ISIS on Obama even though he wasn't even president when ISIS started.
    There's the whole birther movement that he continued to press even after Obama proved himself, and then him trying to say Doyle said it too even though she actually didn't.
    Recently his Trump Foundation which ran for years was forcefully shut down because they actually lacked the certifications to take money from the public.

    In addition to making a fool of himself there's a whole other list of idiotic things that Mike Pence or Trump's campaign people have said as well. It's just too much...

    I'm not fond of Clinton either. She told some lies too at the debate, and that's not to mention the email mess, her continually lying about the classification of the emails, and denying for a while that she did anything wrong. I was surprised when she admitted fault in the debate.
    There's also DWS and the DNC in general screwing over Bernie Sanders which was pretty lame. When DWS resigned after the leaks, Hillary immediately made her the honorary chair of her campaign. That had me livid.

    Yet, I find myself leaning towards Hillary after that debate.

    I'm curious what Trump supporters think about all this stuff.

    Um... Trump is a bit late to the wall party... OBAMA already built the wall... a few years back. LOL

    Trump is like a carnival barker, he belts out a lot of big billowing lines of bs, but the vast majority of it is basically just nonsense rhetoric to get the crowd fired up. It's a very good campaign strategy too and it's the reason he was able to so easily become the GOP front runner. If you're actually familiar with Trump's past though then you know full well he's no hard line Republican... at all.
    so because he speaks a lot of nonsense he should be a president?
    WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT WHEN I AM RUNNING FOR A PRESIDENT!
    I SHOULD CLAIM THAT MARS IS MADE UP OF SANDWICH AND CLAIM THAT SANDWICH ALLANS ARE ATTACKING THE EARTH!

    I'm sorry, are you confused? Is this your first election? First time, huh? :D

    Let me help you out with something... ALL politicians lie... ALL politicians blow out a lot of BS... that's like... their job. No, seriously, that's pretty well the job description of a politician... you lie. Best liar wins! That's how the game works. That's how it's ALWAYS worked.
    this is VERY unhelpful view of politics... YES MOST politicians lie... YES BOTH OF OUR CURRENT CANNADIATES FOR 2016 ELECTION SUCKS... BUT just because most politicians lie it does not mean we should pick WORST ONE. IS your brain fried or what?
    so because all politicians lie we should pick up worst of those two?

    LOL, that flimsy piece of garbage? The one that's not even complete? The one that only stretches across portions of the border?

    look at that. that's not a wall, that's even a sorry excuse for a border fence.

    here's a video showing his political views ever since the 80s

    if that's not republicanism then I really need to change my view on everything.

    Other than that though I'm not seeing where he says anything that's "hard line Republican". Is there some specific part in the video where he does? I'm not gonna sit through 30 minutes of that monotonous grating elevator background music, so just point out, specifically, which part of the video supposedly makes your point.
    The point I meant to make was that he has remained mostly consistent for 30 years.
    I suppose I am not sure what you think a "hard-line Republican" is. A war hawk? Someone who wants all jobs to be outsourced to third-world countries? If that's your definition, then yeah. He's not a "hard-line Republican". And thank God he isn't.

    As far as your other video... you're basically making the case that we need to beef up the border wall. The WALL is already there... is just needs to be made stronger/bigger... and obviously Trump is on board with that idea.
    What wall lmao
    That is a fence. Trump wants a wall, not a fence.

    You're attempting to argue semantics. A wall, a fence, they're the same thing... a barrier. They both have the same purpose, one is simply more secure than the other.

    It's also strange that you don't seem to know what a hard line Republican is...
    Those are the big ones.
    Given your list, it's very clear that YOU have no idea what a hard-line Republican is. FailFish.

    1. VERY Pro-Life, Anti-Choice

    2. VERY pro-gun oriented

    3. VERY religious oriented, but Christian religious doctrine only, often wanting the separation of church and state degraded (prayer in school for example)

    4. Anti-socialism, meaning reduction of government social programs, such as social security.

    5. War, war, war and MORE war! Democrats favor targeted strikes, limited man-power, Republicans favor full on military campaigns.

    6. The rich pay as little tax as possible.

    7. As little government control/oversight as possible.

    8. Anti gay marriage

    9. Energy/economy is generally more important than environmental conservation (support of off-shore drilling, fracking, etc)

    10. Getting rid of federal student loans and only having private student loans.

    11. anti-drugs, with extreme/strict penalties against drug users/sellers

    Those are the big ones.
    Wow I guess Bill Clinton was a hard-line Republican. wew lad.
    The very fact that Trump doesn't fit into the stereotypical "hard-line" republican is exactly WHY he is so popular. People are tired of politicians trying so hard to emulate the hated Bush family. For once we've finally got someone who is wanting to give freedom back to the states, and who doesn't want to be the World Police. Finally we have someone who isn't a slave to special interest donors.

    Yes, I heard about the latest "horrible thing Trump did many years ago".

    I've heard Amy Schumer say worse things.
    Yawn. Next controversy please.

    Wew lads so many hill shills. I only wish the God Emperor would grab me by the p****. HEY GUISE LOOK AT WHAT DONALD TRUMP SAID OVER 10 YEARS AGO. SURELY THIS WILL DESTROY HIS CAMPAIGN. Like how many failed attempts at stumping the Trump does it take until liberals realize it is futile? I admire their tenacity if nothing else.

    you know that Trump is insane right? that is like giving your driver sit to a guy who had 10 cups of vodka and expect a safe travel! In this election you have a jerk who has qualified drivers licence and a red neck who has NO licence who is also a jerk. I would rather place my bet on a person who is qualified to lead rather than someone who is barking mad and does not know what the hell he is talking about!
    if you disagree
    tell me
    WHAT IS DONALD'S PLAN ONCE HE BECOMES PRESIDENT?

    Simple. His plan is he will make America great again. That starts with building a wall, not the flimsy fence that couldn't keep out an el rato. A serious wall that'll stop even the best Mexican pole vaulters and make China's wall look like peanuts.

    He's also going to make better trade deals so America stops getting ripped of by China and Mexico. They have lower workplace standards which means they have the advantage of cheaper labor. It's only fair that if any company is going to outsource their factories, they should pay a tariff. Ideally however, we should just get rid of regulations so you can set up factories with lower workplace standards here. If people want to work in terrible conditions let them. Once the labor market is expanded, instead of employees competing against each other for jobs, employers compete with each other for employees. And this means that they voluntarily increase workplace standards and benefits to entice potential employees to work for them.

    He's going to rip up the Iran deal. What was it, 1.7 billion Obummer gave to them as ransom? America got 4 prisoners. In exchange for over a dozen prisoners and 1.7 billion dollars. What a disaster. John Kerry admitted he didn't even read the entire thing and couldn't name anyone on his team that did.

    He's going to kick ISIL in the balls. Who do you really think terrorists are more scared of, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump? Trump will wipe those dirty goats off the planet. Clinton accepts donations from state sponsors of terrorism like Saudi Arabia and she along with Kerry and Obummer is funding terrorism with their 150 billion sanction relief from that Iran deal, and it's only a matter of time before wikileaks publishes their proof that she supplied weapons to ISIL.

    Lower taxes and a simpler tax code, hopefully. I actually have doubts he will make taxes simpler, if he does, great, if he doesn't, well that's something that also won't change with Clinton.

    And of course a stronger military. A strong military is meant to not be used which neocons like the nation building George Bush doesn't seem to understand. The primary purpose of a military is deterrence, not to look for opportunities to show off your big guns and act like the world police. Rebuild the military that's been gutted under Obummer, and then use it only when necessary. Trump understands this.

    wait why am I even bothered by him when it is clear that Clinton will win unless Trump all of sudden transforms into lelouch vi britannia and uses Geass on American voters
