I will not take 'but' for an answer. Langston Hughes
Mr. Trump talks straight.
That straight talk is why he dispatched 16 opponents (soon to be 20 - Clinton; Johnson; Stein; McMullin) rather handily and will be our 45th President.
Cleverly, he coined the moniker "Crooked Hillary" long before he selected Governor Mike Pence as his running mate, and has not stepped away from using it.
Because Hillary Clinton is crooked. She is corrupt.
FBI investigation findings of fact substantiate she's a criminal. And a steady stream of Wikileaks releases of Mrs. Clinton's, et al., email prove it. More is coming and promised to be devastating (as if it could get worse for Mrs. Clinton).
It's not up to interpretation. There are no if, ands, nor buts. Fact. Truth.
Mr. Trump is a regular on Bill O'Reilly's The Factor (Fox News Channel).
He talks straight.
Last evening it was Governor Pence's turn.
Keep in mind the Governor's brother is a Marine. And so is his son (active duty).
Marines expect straight talk.
Mr. O'Reilly asked Governor Pence, "Do you think Hillary Clinton is corrupt?"
And then came doublespeak.
My thought: Governor, do you remember who your boss is - do you remember his moniker for Mrs. Clinton?
Mr. O'Reilly asked again.
It's a yes or no question, Governor.
And Mr. O'Reilly asked, too, if he thought Loretta Lynch is corrupt.
Disgusted with the Governor's answers, I switched momentarily to the World Series - Wow! Only in the 3rd and the Cubs up 7-0.
I went back to O'Reilly. He and the Governor still at it.
I wanted to yank the Governor out out of his chair and hold school for 30 seconds.
So, Governor, let me, a Marine, help you out.
"Is Hillary Clinton corrupt?"
"Is Hillary Clinton a criminal?"
"Is (Attorney General) Loretta Lynch corrupt?"
The question Mr. O'Reilly did not ask,
"Is (President) Barack Obama corrupt?"
Another question Mr. O'Reilly did not ask,
"Are Attorney General Lynch and President Obama criminals?"
Look up the definition (and U. S. Code) for aiding and abetting. It's not wishy-washy.
Governor, Mr. Trump is using the term "drain the swamp" (referring to the corruption in Washington, D. C.) as 'must be done' when he is elected President.
Hillary Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Barack Obama - and Cheryl Mills, John Podesta, Huma Abedin, and scores of others are trapped in that swamp.
They're crooked. They're corrupt. They're criminals. And to restore law and order in America and regain public trust in same, namely the FBI and Department of Justice, all must be subjected to legal due process.
Mr. Trump talks crooked straight.
Governor Pence ...
Follow your bosses lead. For one day you may have to lead and we want it straight.
With facts, the answer is "Yes." Powerful! More words clutter.
And, by the way, Governor Pence ...
Governor John Kasich, one or your mates, is a coward.
Yesterday it was reported he cast vote for Senator John McCain for President?
Governor Kasich stood on the same first debate stage as Mr. Trump and pledged, before crowd, country, and world, to support the GOP nominee.
Mr. Trump and you are in a bitter battle with enormous consequences for our country and Governor Kasich left the fight.
Governor Kasich deserted. That is inexcusable. It's a crime punishable by death in the military. Think about that. It's not politics. Governor Kasich is not fit to govern. He's not fit to lead anything.
Ask a Marine!
