Trump threatens Chicago Cubs owner for donating money against him


Is this really what we are going to have in the White House? Threats? What will the IRS become? An extortion wing of the Presidential Palace? All because someone ran ads against him? Keep in mind no matter how enchanted one is with the Trump, his ratings with all of the voters will not get him to the finish line. Okay, he can get the GOP nomination. What then I ask. Then there is Cruz or Rubio. With their own problems, Oh boy. This is going to be something.

Seems the Donald is furious that Marlene Ricketts, wife of billionaire J. Joe Ricketts, had contributed a reported $3 million to a super PAC that had been hammering the GOP frontrunner with negative ads ahead of the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire and South Carolina primaries.

“I hear the Rickets [sic] family, who own the Chicago Cubs, are secretly spending $’s against me. They better be careful, they have a lot to hide!” Trump presidentially threatened tweeted Monday.

According to USA Today, the group that received Ricketts’ money, Our Principles PAC, is run by Katie Packer, who helped manage Mitt Romney’s failed bid for the White House in 2012.

    This is one of the things that really scares me about Trump! What is he going to do if he actually gets the power? This is something his supporters should be asking themselves. He seems to think that as President he can do whatever he wants to do and don’t we already have someone like that in office?

      Too many seem to think this expression of authority is grand. Well, this is what brings us an authoritarian type government. But this is what Marx talked about, Just one of the stages.

    His comment could also be a simple “people in glass houses…” It does not necessarily follow that he would attempt to use government power to retaliate against them.

    Let’s face it: The GOP is down to…
    – Trump, who if he has anywhere near the cross-over attraction the pollsters say he has, will beat Hillary and smash the political status quo
    – Cruz, who is also a threat to the status quo, has no crossover potential at all, based on what we know now
    – Rubio, who could beat Hillary and continue the Republicrat-Demican DC Status Quo

    Do you want to be poked in the eye with the stick, or be whacked on the backsides with it? At this point, I’d love to see El Donaldo smash the place up with it, just for the entertainment value. We’re swirling down the crapper anyway, might as well enjoy a few laughs before the lights go out…

      I like your take on it. But there have been no attacks of any consequence on him. The Clinton machine will be ruthless. If we can win without el mexico, the Black vote, have at it. Might as well go down the crapper with him otherwise. Even if Clinton fades out, we have Biden and Fauxahontas waiting in the wings.

        I realize I am jaded… Hillary is probably in the clear–justice won’t indict, and with the devil on her side, she has a 50/50 shot of surviving the storm of outrage and winning the presidency.

        The Bern is turning into a fizzle.

        What, really, are the viable options?
        GOP is bought. DNC, Hillary, Sanders?
        I will stick with Trump.

        Seems most contestants running have adopted Pat Paulsen’s slogan…Presidential campaign slogan: “I’ve upped my standards. Now, up yours.”
