the drumpf says his own campaign should not have deleted the image circulated by white supremacists Hang on - it's his campaign yet he is referring to it as if it's someone else's ? Quote"They shouldn't have taken it down. You know, they took the star down," Trump said to a crowd of several thousand at a rally on Wednesday night. "They should have left it up. I would have rather defended it -- just leave it up. I'd say: No, that's not a Star of David. That's just a star."Why doesn't he tell them to just put it back up ?

I thought we'd agreed that the image was created by a self-described comedianand I think with a twitter stream, it's linear in time so once something is deleted, it can't be put back in the same place

QuoteOriginally posted by: daveangelnobody wants to be the drumpf's VP pickyour link doesn't workTrump reportedly has 10 people left on his VP list, and the sense I'm getting is that Senators Ernst (who is good) and Corker (who is not) met with Trump and it was decided, maybe mutually or maybe by Trump alone, that neither would be the VP, so to avoid loss of they're saying they're taking themselves out of the race
