rabbiofberlin – I don’t disagree with you concerning Trump; but he is still an unknown versus a known. And he has frume mechutanim so maybe that’s worth something.
But for now Trump has a purpose and I don’t think he will make it to the finish line. BTW, no matter what any candidate says while campaigning, the embassy will not move to Jerusalem and the State Dept. will call most of the shots. And Hashem will be the protector of Israel.February 12, 2016 6:00 am at 6:00 am #1137635dovrosenbaumParticipant
Donald Trump is not a jerk. He’s someone who tells it like it is. Some people can’t handle the truth and they don’t want to face the music. America is in the pits. We have record amounts of the population in welfare, we’re being overrun by illegal immigrants from Latin America and China, who are surreptitiously taking over the economy, and we’re being suffocated by the dictatorship of political correctness, which sees sexism, racism, white privilege, and gets offended if you sneeze the wrong way, especially on left wing college campuses. I see Trump as our last hope. He’s the only one with the unabashed chutzpah to take on those who are destroying the country. He wants to put America first in all things, and that’s what we need. I also do like Ted Cruz.February 12, 2016 1:56 pm at 1:56 pm #1137636squeakParticipant
You don’t have to defend him to support him. Trump is an arrogant jerk and a bigot. Obama is an arrogant jerk and a bigot too. Both can be president in this day and age.

“He’s someone who tells it like it is”
No, he says what people want to hear. “Mexico will pay for that wall” isnt telling it like it is. It is simplistic nonesense.
Are these quotes also “telling it like it is”
[then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi]
I thought he was strong and smart, and it looks like we have somebody that knows what he is doing finally in office, and he did inherit a tremendous problem. He really stepped into a mess,” 2/9/2009
Now certainly changing minds is ok, but on som many issues? including party affiliation?
and note the dates on these quotes. Granted some are dated but many are quite recent!February 12, 2016 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #1137638MDGParticipant
“Donald Trump is not a jerk. He’s someone who tells it like it is.”
He’s a master salesman who is saying what some people want to hear. He knows how to get attention. For example, by saying we’re going to kick out all illegal aliens. He also knows how to backtrack subtly, like saying we can let the good ones come back in. I predict he will eventually backtrack more and say, “why kick out the good ones and then let them back in, just keep them here.”
His whole life he’s been a limousine liberal and fast talking salesman. Nothing has changed.February 12, 2016 5:17 pm at 5:17 pm #1137639
People who tell it like it is don’t need to resort to profanity.February 12, 2016 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #1137640flatbusherParticipant
Donald Trump is a chameleon. He changes his position on things often and stands for something only to benefit himself. His definition of conservative at the last debate was ridiculous and he has already signaled that he would work with Dems, meaning he will make deals just to prove he is great dealmaker regardless of what it does for the country. I would rather not vote than vote for him or whoever the Dems put up this year.February 14, 2016 1:53 am at 1:53 am #1137641
I think we would have a better president if we elected someone who didn’t run. It would be unfair for that person, but better for the rest of us.February 14, 2016 4:46 am at 4:46 am #1137642charliehallParticipant
“Neither Teaneck nor Riverdale are majority Orthodox Jewish.”
I haven’t seen election-district by election-district level results from Teaneck, but Obama did best in the parts of Riverdale where there is the greatest concentration of Orthodox Jews and worst in the parts of Riverdale where non-Jews (mostly Irish-Americans) dominate. (Romney would actually defeat Obama in Irish-American and Italian-American areas of the Bronx even though Obama got 91% of the vote in the Bronx overall.February 14, 2016 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #1137643☕️coffee addictParticipant
I agree with ubequitin,
I’m still on the impression that Donald is a mole for the democratsFebruary 14, 2016 5:36 pm at 5:36 pm #1137644
I think any republican still enamored by Trump should watch the debate from last night. Being in a republican debate bashing former republican presidents and policies is very disloyal to the party he wants to represent.
It’s glaringly obvious that he’s very liberal (and nuts) and to think that he might have a chance to nominate the next Chief Justice is quite chilling.February 15, 2016 5:21 am at 5:21 am #1137645yehudayonaParticipant
big deal, are you predicting the demise of John Roberts? He just turned 61.February 15, 2016 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #1137646flatbusherParticipant
If Hillary dropped out, I think a Trump unhappy with the way he is being treated by the Republican National COmmittee could run as a Democrat and he wouldn’t have to change a single thingFebruary 16, 2016 12:21 am at 12:21 am #1137647

We need a trump kind of guy in the White House otherwise the country will collapse!! We need other countries to be afraid! Go trump!February 16, 2016 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm #1137651

Putin has endorsed Trump. Why? Because Putin knows that Trump has no principles – just ego, so he can rule him.February 16, 2016 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #1137653malei daas torahMemberFebruary 16, 2016 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #1137654secretagentyidMember
It really astounds me that Jews are pro trump. I honestly don’t understand how a Jew could like a man who reads mein kampf (according to an interview he gave he keeps a copy next to his bed, and he finds it really helps him with his speech giving), who hates minorities (why does everyone assume that because he’s too busy hating on Mexicans and Muslims he won’t get down to us), and who is an all round chameleon (he changes his views practically every day). This is just besides the fact that he’s a blatant egomaniac, a megalomaniac whose major point is that he has successful businesses(how many have been sued, the subject of class action lawsuits, gone bankrupt, or otherwise become defunct), and who is totally out of touch with the world(remember when he was calling bill gates to shut down the internet because it was mocking him?) And that his supporters are rabidly mad( all the videos of them attacking people, also THE WOMAN WHO SENT HIM A LETTER ASKING HIM TO PUT THE JEWS IN INTERNMENT CAMPS!!!!!!! This is who you are allying with?!?!!!!)
I lean far more towards the republican side than the liberal side, but this man is an absolute joke. And the fact that he is popular, speaks absolute volumes about the current state of the US.February 17, 2016 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #1137656charliehallParticipant
“the fact that he is popular, speaks absolute volumes about the current state of the US.”
And the fact that some Jews are supporting him speaks volumes about the current state of diaspora Jewry!February 17, 2016 6:25 pm at 6:25 pm #1137657nishtdayngesheftParticipant
Trump is a nut, however, he is not as arrogant or vile or as brazen a law breaker or as anti Israel as one of Charlie’s heroes, Shrillary Clinton.
And Charlie’s other idol is Bernie Sanders, an avowed socialist and complete nut job who will bankrupt the country the day after he is elected.
So while Trump is crazy, I am afraid that he is no crazier than either of the leading democrat nut jobs, and he is likely less evil.February 17, 2016 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #1137658It is Time for TruthParticipant
Just say that you’re for Trump.
There you have a rather easy way to get people here to stop supporting him
