Donald Trump’s Biggest Fear is (Wait for It) ‘Public Humiliation’ According to Pre-Run Interviews


*We may have identified what drives Donald Trump even more than his massive ego. According to taped interviews given months before he decided to run for president, Mr. Trump made statements that showed, unequivocally, that he is terribly afraid of being publicly humiliated. And as his run for POTUS comes to a close, a defeat would no doubt fit the bill.

According to an article in The New York Times…

The intense ambitions and undisciplined behaviors of Mr. Trump have confounded even those close to him, especially as his presidential campaign comes to a tumultuous end, and he confronts the possibility of the most stinging defeat of his life. But in the more than five hours of conversations — the last extensive biographical interviews Mr. Trump granted before running for president — a powerful driving force emerges: his deep-seated fear of public embarrassment.

Motivational speaker and TV personality, Iyanla Vanzant once said, “When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time,” and according to the recordings handed to the publication, Trump is revealed as a man who is fixated on his own celebrity (“Celebrities can do anything!”), anxious about losing his status (“It’s rigged!”) and contemptuous of those who fall from grace (Scroll down to hear what he says about Arsenio Hall).

The article states Trump once spoke with disgust about the very likable and highly successful Arsenio Hall. Though Hall was considered successful by any Hollywood standards with a great career as a comic, host of a late-night show bearing his name, and even some acting at one time, previously unreleased interviews from two years ago show Trump referring to Hall as “Dead as a door-nail…Dead as dog meat.”

[He] “couldn’t get on television,” Mr. Trump said with disgust. “They wouldn’t even take his phone call.”

The article goes on to say that Trump felt Hall had suffered the most grievous form of public humiliation: His celebrity had waned. His star had dimmed.

It should come as no surprise, if you’ve watched any of the debates, that Mr. Trump has done no self reflection at all. Perhaps a statement Hillary Clinton once made is true. “Donald,” she said, “lives in an alternate universe.” He demonstrates this often. On the one hand he will admit to “locker room talk” being the reason for his vulgar remarks about women; while in the same breath he will say, “No one respects women more than me.”

This, I’ve noticed, he says with a straight face. Continue reading

Message to Those Voting ‘Third Party’ — Put Your Big Boy/Girl Pants On! (Video)

*So you think you’re doing something special? Out of the box rebellious? Or even cute as you head to the polls and vote third party; for someone you know won’t win?

Word to the bad. You’re not!

Drop the mic.

I have heard there are those who, because they are not crazy about either presidential candidate, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, or Republican nominee Donald Trump, say they will vote Third Party in this election.

Why would you use your voting power to vote for someone that you KNOW won’t win? 


I think of those who are voting for the first time, high school seniors, immigrants who have become citizens; who were unable to vote in their former countries and I think, “They must be so appreciative of this right?”

Surely they recognize this is an opportunity to contribute, on a personal level, to making a better America and maybe even a greater world. Right?

This is the one and only opportunity that we have to make change on a level greater than ourselves. Not only voting people into office, but not walking away from them once they are there. Holding them accountable every step of the way. And never, no matter how hard things get, giving up on this because defeat only happens to those who stop trying.

Some rhetoric is actually true. Continue reading

POTUS Plans ‘One Last Change’ Before He Leaves Office: Reform Prisoners Child Support Payments

*We’ve got approximately 21 days before we head to the polls to choose a new POTUS, but President Barack Obama is working up until the very last minute to reform the criminal justice system he began working on months back. But the issue has been with him for much longer. And according to an article in The Washington Post he shared…

“Since my first campaign, I’ve talked about how, in too many cases, our criminal justice system ends up being a pipeline from underfunded, inadequate schools to overcrowded jails.”

And he made good on his word in August 2016, when he commuted the prison sentences of federal 214 inmates (in a single day) who were locked up on drug charges — some of whom were to be locked up for life.

And as of this writing, according to The Daily News, the total number of commuted sentences has gone up to 775; with 102 of them occuring just last week.

But POTUS says he ain’t finished yet! Before he leaves office he aims to reform the amount of child support payments prisoners are carrying in debt.

In an August statement, Justice Department deputy Sally Q. Yates said, “In just the first eight months of 2016, the President has more than doubled the number of commutations granted in all of 2015.  But we are not done yet, and we expect that many more men and women will be given a second chance through the Clemency Initiative.” Continue reading

Desiree Rogers, Former White House Secretary, Says ‘This is the Real Michelle Obama’

*As if we needed confirmation that the speech First Lady Michelle Obama handed down in New Hampshire; the one where she passionately, yet gracefully, unleashed her fury on the inappropriate comments made by Republican Presidential contender, Donald Trump, who she would not even call by name, came from her heart.

But we’ll take it, Desiree Rogers, because after all, having served as White House social secretary for two years, you would know. Continue reading

‘Picture’ President Obama…on Your Bottled Water (It’s Happening!)


*Well, we know folks are having a hard time letting go when it comes to President Obama. We’ve got, let’s see, today is the 13th…that’s makes 23 more days before we vote for a new POTUS. To say a lot of us will be participating in “the ugly cry” while bidding a fond adieu to the finest First Family we have ever known is an understatement.

Thanks to a company called Moreno BHLV, at least we won’t have to be thirsty while the salty tears flow. The beverage company has produced something we can remember America’s first Black President by…

Bottled water. Continue reading

Scategorically The Best Donald Trump Gifts Ever


*I can scategorically tell you that these are the absolute best gifts EVER for the Donald Trump fan in your life!

First, if you’ve got a dog, how about the Donald Trump Dog Poop Bag? Just in, each roll contains 15 bags that fit on a standard clip-on leash dispenser.

According to the site, you can “make picking up poop great again” and “you’ll have a blast making Donald eat dog poo every day of the week!”

But why should your dog have all of the fun?  Ladies, if your pussy twitches in anticipation of Trump grabbing it, your dreams can come true.   Continue reading

Reporter Says Trump Called Her ‘The C-Word’ (Watch)


*OK. OK. Allegedly.

A reporter who spoke to CNN recently recalls an article she wrote in 1988 pissed Donald Trump off so much that he ended up calling her on the phone, cursing her out, and then referred to her as ‘the c-word’ while speaking with her boss.

Jennifer Lin said she refuses to say the word because “I feel it’s the worse word in the English language to refer to a woman.”

I understand. So I’ll say it for you.


Of course Trump’s people accuse Lin of telling a bold-faced lie. Continue reading

New York Times Admits Trump Presidency Would Be ‘Disastrous!’ (And Here’s Why!)

Can you just see your NEXT PRESIDENT doing THIS? ANYwhere?

*Let me start with a disclaimer: I’m not even gonna front: I am probably the least political person out there. But at the same time and in the same breath I have always been a deep thinker; not afraid to speak my mind or give my opinion, which makes my being a writer no mistake. So when I sat front and center to watch the 1st presidential debate on Monday between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republic nominee Donald Trump, I did so against my liking, but knew that eventually I would have to hunker down and come to terms with the fact that, if you’re going to vote (and I am) you’d better sit your ass down and tune in to what these two candidates are actually saying.

Let it be known that I, not unlike many faced with making a choice in THIS election, am not head over heels about either candidate. I know that many people are voting for Hillary Clinton because they liked Bill. And many are voting for Donald Trump because they hate Obama.

It’s downright scary how frivolous and cavalier people given the power to vote have the potential to be…Kind of like many of the people given a badge and a gun.

Dead means gone forever.

Generally, by now, I have a clear-cut favorite . And if hate wasn’t such a strong word, I’d probably use it towards ‘The Donald.’ I knew immediately I would never respect a presidency he led. Actually, I thought his interest in running was a joke at first, and it was only after he was actually nominated that I realized it was not.

Ugh. On every level. Still. Continue reading
