Looks like we need to rally behind him and support him. Cruz was my first choice but let's go Trump!

I would have supported either but Trump was my guy from the start. Tired of career politicians. I want real change and hopefully Donald gives it to us. Anyone but the witch democrat really. I hope Trump beats her like a rented mule.

I am also tired of career politicians. I think Trump will win by 5-8 points or lose by 5-8 points. I just hope that he wins because he will help the economy and do a lot of tremendous things including making America Great Again!

I think politicians need term limits and don't need a full retirement plan after serving one term or any number of terms.

The witch will probably win because it's "time" and all those stupid kids in other states across the US will vote for her since it is "time". Not thinking about the repercussions that it will bring.

I am hearing Bernie more from the younger generation, just because they hate the outrageousness of the other two. Hillary just has the ex-Obama people that are sheep, and feminists.

Trump was my guy from the start. He is High Risk, High Reward, but either way brings something new in. I like the economic plans he brings, and I like the no BS attitude.

I think Trump is a Hillary plant . Remember Bill Clinton paid Ross Perot to run to cut votes from the Republican. It worked. No Ross Perot equals no President Clinton ever. Same thing today except it is Trump instead of Ross Perot.

I admit my dad is smarter than I and he has been saying all along that Donald is a snake oil salesman. It's not like he has been a consistent conservative like Cruz. You just have to go with the lesser of 2 evils. Sitting on the sidelines is going to really get you a Clinton presidency. Go watch Benghazi and tell me if you want Hillary to be your president? At 3am she'll be sleeping.

I am voting anyone other than a Democrat. I am tired of political correctness and shady backroom deals. I'm tired of tax tax tax and spend spend spend. No more multi-million dollar vacations until our country is out of debt. No more retirement money for these snakes that are career or even 1 term congressmen or Senators. Where else can you pretend to work for 2-4 years and get lifetime retirement of at least 150k? And yet our Social Security is going broke???? Give me anyone other than what has been in office.

Who is Trump going to pick as his Vice President? That could go a long way in mending some of the damage that has been done in the primary. Give me John Kasick or Marco Rubio to try and bring in some of the establishment, or maybe in Ted Cruz. I don't know... Hopefully it brings back some people like my dad so that they can find it within themselves to vote Trump.

Here's an analogy: You see an old lady (nosy neighbor you don't like) getting beat up and robbed on the street, you decide not to intervene because you really dislike her. You didn't participate in the robbery but you basically did because you failed to act. You could have stopped it but your pride got in the way.

Nobody is saying Trump is the next Ronald Regan or anything but he definitely is better than Hillary. Staying at home or going 3rd party is a vote for Hillary as far as I am concerned. If you go that route you are just as sorry as the Hillary supporters in my opinion.

Opinion Columnists
Jonah Goldberg: Trump-Gingrich? Get ready to rumble

"Load up on popcorn: The Republican ticket may be poised to go to 11. According to numerous reports, Donald Trump is considering Newt Gingrich as his running mate. And as traffic-baiters like to say on the internet: You won't believe what happens next!

But first I should come clean. I like Gingrich. My wife worked for him for several years. Whatever his faults, the former House speaker — and architect of the "Republican Revolution" in 1994 — is a brilliant man with almost encyclopedic knowledge of political history and a grab bag of other topics as well. When John Boehner stepped down from the speakership last year, I proposed in this space that Gingrich serve as his temporary replacement.

I should also say that picking Gingrich could be a brilliant idea. Trump has said, admirably, that he wants someone who knows how Washington works. For good and for ill, Gingrich fits that bill. He understands the legislative process, knows everybody, and can navigate the vast ecosystem of lobbyists to his advantage. (Gingrich earned nearly $1.8 million from Freddie Mac serving as a consulting "historian.") Gingrich may have mastered the language of taking on "the Washington elites," but being one has been his job description for nearly 30 years.

Over roughly the same period, I have to say, Gingrich foreshadowed Trumpism. In the 1990s, he used talk radio much the way Trump has exploited social media to get his message past the gatekeepers. In 2012, Gingrich leveraged the debates to dominate the news cycle like a force of nature, attacking — often with devastating efficacy — the presumptions and arrogance of the media.

Trump has made it clear that he's more interested in winning over disaffected Democrats than reluctant conservatives. Gingrich beat him to the punch there, too. Gingrich masterminded much of the GOP's attempt to push white working-class Democrats into the Republican column. And a few years ago, he was ensorcelled by his own idea of a new "tripartisan" movement, which led him to team up for various projects with Nancy Pelosi and Al Sharpton, among others.

Next to forecasting that bears will continue to use our national woodlands as latrines, the easiest prediction in the world to make is that Trump will say some outlandish things in the months to come.

For argument's sake, let's say Trump announces that we should abolish the question mark. Gingrich will then appear on "Meet the Press" to defend his running mate, as any VP candidate must.

"Frankly, Chuck," he'll begin. (Gingrich likes to begin his sentences with "Frankly.") And then we will get a very frank master's course on how, frankly, in the age of emojis, the question mark is a waste of vital national resources. Moreover, he will explain, frankly, that the mainstream media's scorn for this idea just shows how out of touch they are with the concerns of everyday Americans.

Then, on Monday, Trump will say, "Question marks? I love question marks. I meant we should abolish semicolons." And Gingrich will be there, standing alone, atop a rhetorical cloud castle of his own devising, holding the bag.

It gets better. Gingrich suffers from an intellectual version of Trump's political Tourette syndrome. The difference is that Gingrich can almost always offer a plausible — or seemingly plausible — defense for every crazy idea, from moon colonies and mirrors in space (to create 24 hours of electricity-free daylight) to claiming that a woman who drowned her kids proved that people needed to vote Republican.

While I'm sure the presumptive GOP nominee would love to see a Trump Tower on the moon, I have a sneaking suspicion he will have a tougher time explaining his running mate's rhetorical excesses than the other way around."

"Donald Trump Announces His Vice Presidential Running Mate: It’s Donald Trump!

With the Republican Convention now only a few weeks away, Donald Trump has finally announced his pick for Vice President. In a statement released from Trump Presidential Campaign HQ — otherwise known as the Trump Tower Casino, Spa, Massage Parlor and Steak House — Trump said:

“I have thought about the qualities that I’m looking for in my vice presidential running mate long and hard, and I have concluded that the best possible candidate has to be someone who is just like yours truly — i.e. super smart, unbelievably handsome, totally perfect in every way, and capable of being as great a President as me if he or she ever has to serve!

So after careful consideration of a number of outstanding candidates including Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, Mother Theresa — yes I did consider a woman as a VP, albeit a dead one — Jesus of Nazareth and God Almighty himself, I am today announcing that my Vice Presidential nominee is…Me! Donald J. Trump! It was a tough choice folks, but I think I’ve made a terrific decision for our country and our party.“

Trump immediately followed his announcement with a tweet to his millions of followers that simply said:
#election2016 Crooked Hillary can play the #womans card, but I’ve picked myself as my VP nominee so the GOP now has #2trumpcards! Ha!

As expected, Sarah Palin immediately offered her full-throated, high-pitched endorsement of Donald Trump’s choice for VP. In an exclusive interview with the National Enquirer, the gal-rilla from Wasilla said:

“I totally agree with Donald Trump’s pick of Donald Trump as his VP running mate. Just think about it people! There are two Clintons at the top of the Democratic ticket — Hillary and Bill — and so I don’t see why we can’t have two Donald’s at the top of the Republican ticket! It’s gonna mean double trouble for Democrats, folks!”

However Republicans leaders, who have grown increasingly nervous of Trump’s actions and candidacy in recent weeks, were not nearly as forthcoming with their praise.

In fact, Paul Ryan’s office released a statement saying that the Speaker of the House was so speechless at the VP news that he would not be able to comment on anything Trump says or does any time soon, and probably not for the next millennium. And Mitch McConnell’s press secretary announced that the Senator Majority Leader was unavailable to talk to the media as he was currently lying down in a darkened room with the lights off, after consuming an entire bottle of Xanax in 30 seconds flat.

As news of Trump’s VP pick spread, leading democrats quickly took to the airwaves to make their own views publicly known — and none more quickly than Hillary Clinton herself.

In a hastily scheduled appearance on CBS This Morning, Mrs. Clinton condemned Trump for choosing himself as his own VP and called him “an ego and an alter ego maniac”. She then took to Twitter to urge The Donald and the VP version of himself to “delete your accounts” immediately.

Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic party’s attack dog, was much more biting in her criticism. In an interview on MSNBC, she called Trump the perfect combination of a penis and a fascist, and branded him a “Dick-tator”. She also predicted that Trump would move quickly to consolidate power within his inner circle — which is rumored to include precisely one person, i.e. Donald — as soon as he became president.

Late today, Warren’s fears were unwittingly confirmed by Trump himself during an appearance on Fox News. When asked who in a Trump administration, would be the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Treasury, head of the CIA and FBI, and the next Republican nominee for the Supreme Court, Trump said:

“Give me a break! Donald J. Trump of course!”
