That's Entertainment !!

Serious Americans are upset.

So what else is new? The US political process is rigged, and the American sheeple are blind.  
We respond best to entertainment!

The Trump® phenomenon may tank before November Election Day, but (to borrow broadly from the Israeli sage Ben Nitai Netanyahu):  "No matter the election results" -- We Win.

The entertainment industry wins. 

The American political process is fueled by entertaining snippets, soundbites making money for media. Media eggs-on the contestants; media takes a profit on every tragedy, all the news, and each scandal: good, bad & ugly.

America's Family Value Republicans ? ...

Trump® is a bum. But The Donald sells the news. Over the past half-year Trump's creepy remarks powered the media. Here are some soundbites (many from here (link); more are here (link); more Trumpisms will be added):

[ Howard Stern raises the topic of Trump's daughter Ivanka, age 17 ] Trump: "She's beautiful." Stern: "Can I say this? A piece of ass..." Trump: "Yeah!" 

[ Trump on first wife, Czechoslovakian-born Ivana Zelníčková ]  
"The funny thing about Ivana is the accent got worse as she grew older, and some people said she wanted it to happen. The accent actually became more pronounced as years went by. It was like the Chinese torture. You know, the water drops on your head,"

[ With Bush dynasty blueblood Billy, on Bush co-host Nancy O'Dell ] 
"I did try and fuck her - she was married... I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn't get there... And she was married."

"I'm automatically attracted to beautiful women. I just start kissing them, It's like a magnet - I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything -- Grab 'em by the pussy -- you can Do Anything."

[ Off-beat political statements by Republican candidate Trump ]
"I will build a great great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall."

"They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists... and some I assume are good people." 

"Happy Cinco de Mayo! The best taco bowls are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics!"

"We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated."

"I'm allowed to go in because I'm the owner of the pageant and therefore I'm inspecting it, You know, I'm inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. You know, the dresses. 'Is everyone okay?' You know, they're standing there with no clothes. 'Is everybody okay?' And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that." 

"Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!"

"Our politicians are stupid. And the Mexican government is much smarter, much sharper, much more cunning. And they send the bad ones over because they don't want to pay for them. They don't want to take care of them. Why should they when the stupid leaders of the United States will do it for them?"

"He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured." 

"Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on."

“I don’t think I’ve made mistakes. Every time somebody said I made a mistake, they do the polls and my numbers go up, so I guess I haven't made any mistakes." 

"I have a great relationship with the blacks."

"Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"

"If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you? Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell -- I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees."

"She does have a very nice figure. I've said if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her."

"If she gets to pick her judges – nothing you can do, folks. Although, the Second Amendment people. Maybe there is. I don’t know."
