    First Matthews cleans Trump's clock, now Maureen Dowd serves up the coup de grace:


    Trump Does It His Way
    http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/03/opinion/sunday/trump-does-it-his-way.html?_r=0


    WASHINGTON — YOU could hear how hard it was for Donald Trump to say the words.

    “Yeah, it was a mistake,” he said, sounding a bit chastened. “If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t have sent it.”

    I was telling him he lost my sister’s vote when he retweeted a seriously unflattering photo of the pretty Heidi Cruz next to a glam shot of his wife, Melania.

    He repeated his contention that he didn’t view the Heidi shot “necessarily as negative.” But I stopped him, saying it was clearly meant to be nasty.

    Trump also got into his schoolyard excuse of “he did it first” and “that wasn’t nice,” insisting that Ted Cruz wrote the words on the digital ad put up by an anti-Trump group aimed at Utah Mormons; it showed Melania in a 2000 British GQ shot posing provocatively and suggested that it was not First Ladylike. Cruz denies any involvement.

    Truth be told, Trump said he “didn’t love the photo” of Melania. “I think she’s taken better pictures,” he said, also protesting: “It wasn’t a nude photo, either. It wasn’t nude!”

    It’s ridiculous how many mistakes Trump has made in rapid order to alienate women when he was already on thin ice with them — and this in a year when the Republicans will likely have to run against a woman.

    He did a huge favor for Hillary, who had been reeling from losing young women to a 74-year-old guy and from a dearth of feminist excitement. And for Cruz, who started promoting himself as Gloria Steinem, despite his more regressive positions on abortion and other women’s issues.

    Wouldn’t it have been better, I asked, if Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski had simply called the reporter Michelle Fields and apologized for yanking her arm?

    “You’re right, but from what I understand it wouldn’t have mattered,” Trump said.

    In an MSNBC interview with Chris Matthews, the formerly pro-choice Trump somehow managed to end up to the right of the National Right to Life Committee when he said that for women, but not men, “there has to be some form of punishment” if a President Trump makes abortion illegal.

    Trump quickly recanted and even told CBS’s John Dickerson that “the laws are set. And I think we have to leave it that way.”

    “This was not real life,” he told me. “This was a hypothetical, so I thought of it in terms of a hypothetical. So that’s where that answer came from, hypothetically.”

    Given his draconian comment, sending women back to back alleys, I had to ask: When he was a swinging bachelor in Manhattan, was he ever involved with anyone who had an abortion?

    “Such an interesting question,” he said. “So what’s your next question?”

    I pressed, how he could possibly win with 73 percent of women in this country turned off by him?

    He chose another poll, murmuring, “It was 68 percent, actually.”......

    What a fucking dumbkopf.

    I think you must be thinking of another townhall, because Trump barely got off-stage with his junk still in his trousers.

    In a fair world Chris Matthews looked like a total hypocrite. This isn't a fair world.
    Trump hammered Matthews on his two-faced beliefs on abortion. His church doesn't allow abortion, yet he wants to claim he's pro-choice, which is a warm and fuzzy way of saying he believes in murdering the unborn. Trump hammered him, yet supposedly Trump is the one who was wrong.

    Mathews is a Left Wing Hack...........I just watched a couple of his interviews with Trump in Town Hall atmospheres...............The asshole never shuts up........He takes a question from the audience.......Trump is trying to answer the question and Mathews rambles on and on while Trump is trying to answer the question........

    The audience wants his answer............but the loud mouth interrupts Trump continuously..............had I been on that stage with Mathews I'd have stopped got up and sat down in the audience and said since you will not let me answer..........then let the audience ask you since you will not shut up.

    Mathews is nothing more than a hack to me...............and a Left Wing Propaganda artist.

    Actually, Trump was answering a hypothetical..so he answered it from a purely legal position. Once he conferred with his legal staff, he decided that the best way to approach this phony hypothetical was to say the doctor would be punished. At the time the question was asked, he'd never thought about it. If you ask Hillary the same question, which would never in a million years happen, she wouldn't answer the question unless she had a team focus-group it for days.

    It was a set up question. Period.

    Mathews the hack set him up by giving a Hypothetical ban on abortion. If it's banned would their being a penalty for it.........So he was asking for a Hypothetical punishment for a HYPOTHETICAL BAN................Then trying to give specifics to the hypothetical question.

    Nothing more than a typical left wing Set Up question by the Leftist Hack Mathews.............

    Mathews is Trash and nothing more.
