It's stuff like this that kills presidential campaigns

    Politico: Gaps in Melania Trump's immigration story raise questions
    It's almost incomprehensible, almost unfathomable to me that someone could be this stupid. Donald is such a narcissist it probably didn't even occur to him the depth of his hypocrisy, because he so instinctually believes that this is just natural, that the rules don't really apply to guys like him, such that he didn't even contemplate that this could be the something that would unravel every knot in his twisted tongue, nor that it would lie unturned in spite of the scrutiny of a presidential campaign; that not even guys like him could escape the mob's outrage for it.

    If Trump isn't telling the truth about being in accordance with the law, and quite clearly that doesn't appear the case, then this lie is the fork in him. Even if Melanie is, in spite of the glaring inconsistencies, it's one more example of how he only pretends to care about the common man.

    I disagree. 2 weeks from now Trump will be tied again with Clinton or quickly heading in that direction.

    The media has created this monster with it's ridiculous news cycle, where the only thing that sticks is something that gets media saturation for days on end.

    The Mexican judge story hurt Trump in the polls, just as the Gold Star family story did, but give it two weeks, without media saturation on the issue, and watch how the public regains it's 48 hour memory.

    There is a reason that the NSA story was done in a slow leak. There is a reason that Assange is slow leaking the DNC e-mails. There is a reason that Trump's poll numbers will rebound if he stays away from controversy for a couple weeks. And that reason is the news cycle that the media has created, and the lack of any legitimacy in the eyes of the public of the media.

    In an interview with Larry King Live in 2005 Melania Trump said that she had never been married before meeting Donald Trump.

    But, Michael Wildes, an immigration attorney who worked for the Trump Organization, told Univision's investigative unit that she obtained a green card four years earlier in 2001, “based on marriage.”

    Melania and Donald Trump were not married until Jan. 22, 2005 at Bethesda-by-the Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida.

    No seriously...papers please. Trump the birther needs to supply the immigration documentation.

    Immigration fraud is a federal crime.

    If you say so. What could easily kill Hillary's campaign is another terrorist attack or attack on Police. People tend to be more polarized by real world events rather than dirt-digging journalism.

    Isn't Khazir Khan an immigration lawyer? Lmao!

    Maybe he can take the case pro bono, since Trump is really a broke ass bitch.

    This is "Hillary ego" week, as she can't just accept the FBI director's comments towards her.

    This shit is far from over, and both candidates need help in overcoming their own egos. It's baffling to me at how easy it could've been for ether one to just run away with it, but they can't help themselves, and push these squabbles to the brink.


    Melenia Trump? Who cares? It's all about these two behaving like forum posters who can't admit when they're wrong, and who gets the last word in. It's so silly right now.

    Come on, Murica. We have these two clowns competing to see who rules over us? Yowza...

    He is just a complete asshat. It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that they would slip one day. Doubt anything will happen though.

    From what I saw he already as, today in reuters poll he slashed the gap down to three points. Looks like Hillary's convention bump might be over.

    LOL, uh, no. Gap is up tp +6.8 for Shillary, the highest it has ever been since after they effectively won their respective nominations mathematically in the primary, and this story only began to gain traction yesterday when I posted it (it had to compete with a half dozen other blunders in the same news cycle this week):

    Polly Mosendz made the point that most legal immigrants and naturalized citizenships had some period of being "illegal" (mail delays, language barriers, etc.). "Like Melania, many do the best they can within the confines of the system: come on legal visas, convert to legal permanent residency."

    I look at this one as just campaign bullshit. The kind of irrelevant story that normal candidates have to deal with a few times during the cycle that no one really does or should give a shit about. Trump has avoided these because there's so much real shit to talk about.

    Not a chance. Trump is a pussy and unstable as fuck. He's baited by Putin over and over, he sucks the Saudi teat, he doesn't know shit at all about foreign affairs.

    I'm just talking about this poll, which shows the gap narrowing a little.

    Is this officially democratic circle jerk week in the WR? Congrats in your polls and such guys but being hyperbolic and mean spirited doesnt look good on anyone.

    Trump's rallying cry is his harsh stance on illegal immigration. Without making this his defining issue, I don't think he would've become the nominee. So yeah, his wife's immigration status matters, even if it was before he married the broad. If she was ever illegal then this is hypocrisy at the highest level.

    It's funny how the "dey terk er jerbs" crowd supports a guy who literally shipped "er jerbs" overseas and to Mexico. Ya know, the country that sends its rapists.
