Elections Today: Trump Says Might Have Stopped 9/11, People Don’t Trust Hillary On Emails

From the “For the love of all that’s Holy, just stop ad-libbing and stay on message” files

(The Hill) Donald Trump argued Wednesday that his immigration policies could have prevented the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks by keeping the hijackers from entering America in the first place.

The GOP presidential nominee brought up the issue at a rally in Daytona Beach, Fla., while rehashing a series of controversies that plagued his primary bid, specifically when he said Muslims were “dancing on the streets and the rooftops” in New Jersey celebrating the attack on the World Trade Center.

“By the way, those people who knocked down the World Trade Center, most likely under the Trump policy wouldn’t have been here to knock down the World Trade Center,” he said.

Trump has called for a ban on all immigration from countries with a history of terrorist activity, but hasn’t specifically laid out which countries would qualify. That policy amounted to a shift from his earlier call to temporarily ban all Muslim immigration.

The majority of the 9/11 attackers originally arrived on tourist or business visas. Several of them asked to have those visas changed to longer visas. Most of them blew the visas off. Mohammed Atta came in via Germany. Would Trump attempt to ban all people coming in to US from all Muslim countries? Or would there be any nuance? On one hand, most of the hijackers weren’t on any watch list. On the other, do we ban all visits because they came from a Muslim nation? Regardless, this is simply stupid messaging from Trump. Which has been a big problem from him lately. Ad-libbing things that make people go “wait, what? What the heck is he yammering on about now?”

Stay on message. Stop making unforced errors. Go after Hillary, not after other Republicans, and stop with this type of foolishness. Ben Carson just stated on MSNBC that Trump won’t allow others to drag him into the bushes. First of, he has. Second, he does a great job of that himself

As for Hillary

(Gallup) Voters are very suspicious about the 30,000 e-mails Hillary Clinton and her staff chose to delete and not turn over to the FBI and aren’t all together sure it would be a bad thing if Russia returned those e-mails to investigators here.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is likely Clinton and her staff deleted those e-mails to hide something incriminating from the FBI, with 45% who say it’s Very Likely. Thirty-five percent (35%) say it’s unlikely they were trying to hide anything, but that includes only 15% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

So, most think she’s a criminal. It gets better

Clinton’s Republican rival Donald Trump suggested last week that if the Russians have the missing 30,000 Clinton e-mails, they should turn them over to the FBI. Just 34% of voters feel it would be bad for U.S.-Russia relations if the Russians had obtained Clinton’s e-mail through cyberspying and now turned them over to the FBI. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say such a move would be good for relations between the two countries, while 26% think it would have no impact. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.

So, while Democrats were caterwauling over what Trump said, most think there’s no problem with Russia giving up those emails. If they have them.

Message to Donald: hit Hillary.

    Since the latest polls show Trump trailing by 10%, the media are panicking and working overtime to prop up Trump, “advising” him to pivot his campaign, running every speech and tweet. Clinton has been disappeared.

    The media always needs a contest and are working overtime to get one. Like all educated people, they want Trump to lose, but they need a close contest. This attitude elected Bush in 2000.

    Message to Donald: hit Hillary.

    Absolutely correct.

    A local columnist wrote that half the country is more concerned about micro-aggressions than actual malfeasance.

    The dems are caught conspiring to steal an election (from Bernie) and yet the so-called big story was Trump criticizing a speaker at the dem convention.

    Yesterday we find out Barry O paid ransom to the Iranians and the big story? Trump was mean to a baby.

    Trump needs to be more disciplined and go after the most corrupt politician in our lifetimes, Hillary. And he need to do it all the time.

    Or course, whether he can stay disciplined is another question.

    RealClearPolitcs now has Clinton ahead of tRump by 5.5%
    Nate Silver says that 5% will likely mean the Dems will take the Senate.
    If it goes up over 8% the House might change
    More Republicans (76%) want a pathway to citizenship for those without proper documents (the criminal illegals) than want a wall built (62%)
    The extremist base of the GOP (including you, Porter) have alienated the voters of the USA.

    It’s not a good thing by any means, but you have to figure that the Russians, and the Germans, and the British, and the French, and the Israelis, and the Chinese, all have those e-mails.

    Every professional spy agency spies on everybody, all the time, just like when we tapped Angela Merkel’s cell phone. To not do such things is just plain sloppy work.

    Nothing to see here.

    Reports of Trump rallies in Daytona drawing up to 10k and Jacksonville up to 15k supporters.

    Hillary rallies attended by hundreds.

    Yep, Donald should be really worried.

    At the end of the day, Hillary is a lyin, crooked, incompetent, murderer. Can’t change the facts.

  7. Jeffery says:

    At the end of the day, The Donald is a lyin’, crooked, incompetent rapist. Can’t change the facts.

  8. Jeffery says:

    Trump says he should hit Secretary Clinton some more! He already calls her names every day. Crooked Hillary! Hillary Rotten Clinton! The Devil!

    What’s next? Emails? 4 Dead in Benghazi! (Maybe Trump can steal the tune from Crosby, Stills etc, although he’d probably renege on the contract like usual)

    Normal Americans aren’t buying his Muslim-bashing, immigrant exporting, baby ejecting schtick. There appears to be about 35% of Americans who think he’d be OK as Prez. Can he fool more? His handlers want him to change his approach and try to appear to be a decent human being, reasoning that his hardest-line supporters won’t abandon him for showing a trace of humanity. We all know what kind of turd he is, but can he fool enough folks to pull off the upset??

    Can Trump get the Russians to help him smear Clinton? We’ll see.

  9. drowningpuppies says:

    Trump rallies in Daytona drawing up to 10k and Jacksonville up to 15k supporters.

    Hillary rallies in Florida attended by hundreds.

    Yeah, little guy, send her more money, you little cheapskate.
