Who’s more narcissistic? Trump or Hillary?

The image that the MSM portray of Donald Trump is that he’s an inflated egotistical narcissist.

Not to say that he isn’t, as narcissism and an inflated opinion of oneself seem to be requirements for being a politician. But using how often one talks about oneself as a measure of narcissism, a recent study found that — SURPRISE! — Hillary Clinton is more than double a narcissist than Trump.

Martin Armstrong reports for statistica that analysts at Socialbakers looked at posts on Facebook and Twitter by Hillary, Trump and their teams in the days leading up to and after the third and last presidential debate (Oct. 6-12) to count how many times each talked about themselves.

They found that Hillary Clinton is the clear winner:

  • On Facebook, Hillary mentioned herself in 46% of Facebook posts, whereas for Trump, it was just 20%.
  • On Twitter, Hillary mentioned herself in 28% of her posts, whereas Trump mentioned himself in only 15% of his tweets.


By the way, a high score on narcissism isn’t just indicative of the Narcissistic Personality Disorder, narcissism is also a defining attribute of Anti-Social Personality Disorder, aka sociopathy or psychopathy, i.e., psychopaths are narcissistic.


We’ve already had 8 years of Obama the narcissist.

God help us if we get another 4 years of Hillary the narcissist and psychopathic liar as President.

Women – anti-Trumpers – Are Boycotting Ivanka Trump’s Brand

And how many of these womyn boycotting Ivanka have supported Broaddrick, Jones or Wiley? Yeah, didn’t think so.


From Cosmopolitan Magazine: Lindsey Ledford, a 29-year-old student at the University of Maryland-University College, is a self-described “Maxxinista” who shops at her local College Park, Maryland, T.J. Maxx at least three times per week. But about a week ago, her favorite store abruptly lost her business: Ledford was checking out a black blouse with a stripe down the center when, suddenly, she felt like her throat was closing and she couldn’t breathe.

 “My first thought was, Grab them by the pussy. We can do anything we want. Don’t even ask,” Ledford told

The blouse was triggering traumatic flashbacks to physical abuse she’d suffered in the past, and to times she’d been grabbed or groped by men without her consent. “None of them ever asked how I felt, what I was thinking, or what I wanted. They didn’t wait,” she wrote in a flurry of tweets at T.J. Maxx after fleeing the store. “That is what ‘Trump’ means to me,” she told me: complete disregard for women and their bodies. “It doesn’t matter if Ivanka’s name is in front of it, or Donald’s.”


Speaking of disregard for women…

Ledford is now one of a passionate group of women joining forces to boycott both the Ivanka Trump fashion and accessories brand and, unless they drop Ivanka’s line from stores, the retailers who carry it. The list includes T.J. Maxx,, Zappos, Bloomingdale’s, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, DSW, Macy’s, Marshall’s, and Saks Off Fifth. “As much as I love shopping at T.J. Maxx, I can’t stomach seeing that name front and center,” she said. “Supporting a brand — Trump — that condones sexual assault and makes excuses for it is wrong.” (Ledford also logged a complaint with a phone call to customer service; she said a rep politely listened and promised to pass along her feedback.)


Shannon Coulter on a mission against Ivanka

The boycott was hatched on Twitter by Shannon Coulter, CEO of a boutique marketing agency in San Francisco, on October 10, in the wake of Trump’s now-infamous Access Hollywood tape; since then, Coulter’s tweets about the boycott, including tweets aimed at the retailers who carry Ivanka Trump products, have earned an estimated 1 million impressions on Twitter, according to her analytics report.

For a long stretch of the campaign, “[women] were ready to give Ivanka a pass because she’s his daughter and it’s hard to be objective about your dad. But the Trump tape just sent people over the edge,” Coulter told me. “I think [women] took particular offense, as I did, to the fact that Ivanka tries to make feminism a part of her brand but is standing by, as an official campaign surrogate, a guy who is an alleged serial sexual assaulter of women. The disconnect was too big. And they were ready to speak up about it and flex their consumer power about it.”

I'm sure this daughter can be objective about her father

A father and daughter who the proggies always give a pass

Though Ivanka insisted this week at a Fortune Most Powerful Women event: “I am not a surrogate. I’m a daughter,” the lines between Ivanka and her father’s incendiary politics have been blurred beyond recognition for some former fans and customers. Ivanka and her eponymous line are “inextricably tied to a movement that denigrates women,” Amy Andelora, a 52-year-old high school teacher in Mesa, Arizona, told me.

Days after the tape’s release, Andelora tweeted a plea to Neiman Marcus, asking the retailer to remove Ivanka’s line. She is also boycotting her favorite store, Nordstrom, where she says she formerly spent “hundreds of dollars per month,” because, similar to Ledford, she felt triggered by a pair of Ivanka shoes.


“It’s a visceral response, when I see the name ‘Ivanka’ nestled inside a shoe,” she said. ”The man who assaulted me used almost exactly the method Donald Trump described in his conversation with Billy Bush. I can’t see a Trump-related label without remembering what happened to me three years ago in a house I couldn’t escape.

Though some customers are defecting, Ivanka Trump’s eponymous line — an estimated $100 million operation in the last fiscal year, according to a July report in Forbes — has thrived in spite of her father Donald Trump’s wildly controversial presidential campaign. (Trump has made damning comments about women, Mexican and Muslim immigrants, and Gold Star families, while Ivanka, an executive vice-president at the Trump Organization, has consistently defended him as a “feminist,” insisting she knows him to be different.) As a private company, the Ivanka Trump brand does not release sales or profit numbers. But an Ivanka Trump brand PR representative told that sales and revenue grew 37 percent over 2015.

“Over the past year many more women have discovered and become loyal to the brand, leading us to experience a significant year over year revenue growth,” said Abigail Klem, chief brand officer through the representative.

According to annual and quarterly reports by her licensing company GIII, sales at the Ivanka Trump brand grew $29.4 million over last year, and increased $11.8 million in the last six months. “Whether or not people are saying good things or bad things, her name is getting out there,” Madeline Hurley, a retail industry analyst at market research firm IBIS World, said. “She can’t really pay for the press that she’s getting.”

But for some, the fact that Ivanka’s business has appeared to profit from the exposure of the Trump campaign is all the more reason to boycott. “[Ivanka] is supporting one of the most offensive, sexist, racist, xenophobic human beings to ever run for president,” Ledford said. “She is making a buck off it.”

Though Ivanka said at this week’s Fortune event that she’s “always tried to maintain complete separation between [her brand] and the campaign,” Ledford and others point to what they feel is a notable example to the contrary: after introducing her father at the Republican National Convention (in a speech filled with traditionally Democratic policies like equal pay, paid leave and affordable childcare), Ivanka tweeted a link to buy the blush-pink shift she was wearing from her collection with the line: “Shop Ivanka’s look from her #RNC speech.”


Don’t you DARE inquire as to where to buy this dress…(at least it wasn’t blue!)

“Do I think it’s appropriate for her to tweet out a link to where you can buy the dress that she was wearing? No, definitely not,” said Dini von Mueffling, founder of an eponymous public relations and strategy agency in New York. “Instead of tweeting about her dress, I think the message that she should have put out there was how honored she was to be part of a moment in our nation’s history, and to be part of trying to improve the lives of Americans everywhere.”

Gloria Ratcliffe, once a faithful customer, threw out a pair of Ivanka Trump pumps after another of Ivanka’s high-profile campaign appearances — when she attended the second debate in support of her father, just days after the release of the now-infamous tape. Ratcliffe also decided against buying bridesmaids dresses for her spring wedding from Nordstrom, as well as shoes for the wedding party from DSW, because both carry the Ivanka Trump brand.

Some anti-hate attire for the wedding, perhaps?

Some anti-hate attire for Ratcliffe’s wedding, perhaps?

“My wedding is a day of love. I’m not going to wear clothes that represent hate,” Ratcliffe said. “[Trump] doesn’t respect women at all, and I’m not giving my money to people who are supporting him, because it’s going to inevitably end up in his pocket.” (Ivanka’s line is a sub-brand of the Trump Organization).

So far, none of the retailers who carry the Ivanka Trump brand have dropped the line in response to the boycott. reached out to 12 retailers; only two replied. A representative for Nordstrom said: “We have received some feedback from customers, though we don’t currently have plans to stop offering this brand.” (When asked about the nature of that feedback, the representative didn’t answer). Zappos declined to comment.

But Coulter and the women boycotting Ivanka’s brand aren’t giving up. Ledford, for instance, is still steering clear of T.J. Maxx: In addition to voting for Hillary Clinton and donating to her campaign, Ledford feels the boycott is another way of taking concrete political action. It’s “something I can do to say ‘enough is enough,’” she says. “I can not give my money to them.”

Coulter continues tweeting, every day, multiple times per day, and calling retailer customer service lines to complain about the Ivanka brand. She says she has received backlash for the boycott on Twitter — some men, in particular, argue that Ivanka shouldn’t be held accountable because they believe she’s being manipulated by PR people or by her father.

“I don’t think that’s true,” Coulter said. “She’s the head of an international, $100 million dollar a year brand. She’s sophisticated. I think she’s smarter than Donald Trump. Part of why I started the boycott is because I respect her as a businesswoman. We should hold her to a higher standard.

And just how many liberal women were triggered by this?

Exit question: How many liberal women were triggered by this fine example of a “higher standard?”


Miley Cyrus tells voters, “’Kiss my ass if you aren’t for Hillary!”

Clinton’s celebrity supporters sure are endearing folk. Next Cyrus will be offering blowjobs, no doubt.

Miley being Miley...

Miley being Miley…

From Daily Mail: She’s doing her bit to get Millennials to the ballot box. And Miley Cyrus showed her commitment to the democratic process, as she posted a picture of herself peering between her legs while doing yoga on Sunday.

‘Good morning!!!!’ she wrote, before quickly getting to her point. ‘Kiss my ashtanga a** if you aren’t voting for @hillaryclinton #imwithher #mydreamistodoyogawithHC.’


The Wrecking Ball singer showed her flexibility in the image, bent double, and peering with a smile through her legs. While impressive, the 23-year-old seemed completely at ease in the position.

Miley has been using her celebrity status to drum up support for Hillary Clinton in Virginia.

The former Disney star surprised George Mason University students by knocking on their dorm room doors in a bid to earn the Democratic presidential candidate extra millennial votes.

In a video clip posted on social media, Cyrus, who is sitting next to a window looking down on a huge crowd of students, tells the camera: ‘They’re saying Hillary, I swear.’ She then adds, ‘they’re saying Miley,’ and laughed.

Miley made her way around campus in a Stars-And-Stripes-themed outfit by Spanish designer Agatha Ruiz De La Prada, with a red and white striped skirt and a blue bow for a crop top.

She talked with students about topics including LGBTQ rights, pineapple fried rice and Clinton’s white pantsuit (you know, the really important stuff) during the third presidential debate, which Miley loved, according to reporter Emma Loop, who was on campus and live-tweeted the visit.

Earlier, Miley shared three photos of herself on Twitter with the hashtag #imwithher, showing she was about to board her plane on her way to Virginia.


Trump’s Gettysburg Address: what he will do in first 100 days

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, Donald Trump chose Gettysburg, PA — a site full of historic and political meaning to Americans who actually know about this country’s history — to deliver arguably his most important speech in his quest for the presidency.

In his speech, Trump outlined an 8-point plan for his first 100 days in office should he be elected President 15 days from now, on November 8.

In a follow-up email this morning, Trump summarized his speech as follows:

As soon as I enter the White House on January 20, 2017, I will begin implementing my 8-Point Plan for the First 100 Days of the Trump Administration, and here’s what we’ll do:

  1. On Day One, we will roll out our plan to BUILD THE WALL, send criminal illegal immigrants home, and finally end the open borders nightmare.
  2. Begin renegotiating ALL unfair trade deals like NAFTA which have undercut American employment and exported our prosperity.
  3. CANCEL all executive orders, bureaucratic rules, and crippling regulations that send American jobs overseas.
  4. Work with Congress to REPEAL and replace the disastrous ObamaCare legislation that is ruining American healthcare.
  5. Lift the radical Obama regulations on America’s energy industry to END our dependence on foreign sources and create new jobs here at home.
  6. Propose, pass, and sign into law a massive TAX CUT for all working Americans and unleash the jobs-creating power of our small businesses.
  7. NOMINATE Supreme Court Justices who will uphold the Founders’ Constitution and not legislate the liberal agenda from the bench, and…
  8. IMPOSE strict new ethics rules to restore the integrity of the Office of the Secretary of State.

Accurately accusing the corporate media of “trying desperately to suppress my vote and the voice of the American people,” Trump also promised he will stop the MSM from abusing their power, beginning with thwarting the merger of AT&T and Time Warner — a media empire that already owns CNN and HBO. On Saturday, AT&T Inc. officially announced its purchase of Time Warner Inc.

Trump also said that if he were President, he would not have approved the acquisition of NBC Universal by Comcast Corp in 2013 because by concentrating even more power in media giants who control news and information, such mergers “destroy democracy” and “poison the mind of the American voter.”

Hillary Clinton will do none of that because, like Wall Street, the news media are big donors to Hillary’s corrupt Clinton Foundation.

Here’s Trump’s Gettysburg speech:

New York City has scandalous bureaucrats overseeing its struggling schools

Shocker, not. If the kids in schools can get away with doing bad things (See the new discipline code launched by Mayor de Blasio and the Department of Education) then why shouldn’t the teachers?


Via NY Post: The city Department of Education has stocked the office that oversees the city’s lowest-performing schools with bureaucrats who were ineffective and tainted by scandal in previous school jobs.

Mayor de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Carmen Fariña launched the Renewal program two years ago to boost 94 struggling schools. Independent Budget Office figures show they plan to spend $887 million through 2019. But some of the 114 educrats who oversee the 86 schools now in the program were reprimanded by courts, oversight boards and parents, a Post review found.

Parents charge that the program has become a place to reward cronies and dump the unfit. “The DOE has many former principals still working who should have been fired,” said a member of the Brooklyn Community Education Council. “The bad news is that they are now the ones in positions telling others how to teach, and that’s not right.”

Brooklyn College and CUNY Graduate Center education professor David Bloomfield said the city must make better personnel decisions. “These schools are behind the eight ball,” Bloomfield said. “The de Blasio administration has to make the case that these are the best people for these jobs — and they haven’t.”


Among the questionable hires was Elif Gure, an executive director and second in command to Renewal Executive Superintendent Aimee Horowitz. Gure created a “hostile, race-based work environment” as principal of PS 316 in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, and called a parent coordinator the N-word, a federal judge ruled in March 2014. A jury awarded the coordinator $110,000.  Gure makes a $171,601 salary in the Renewal program.

Eileen Coppola, executive director of Renewal high schools, left her post as principal at the Secondary School for Journalism in Park Slope, Brooklyn, awash in problems. The school’s PTA president said students failed Regents exams despite getting A’s and B’s in class. A petition by 24 kids complained they didn’t get most of the earth-science labs required by the state. Coppola makes $144,824 in her new job.

Joelle Mcken, a Renewal director in District 17 making $141,765, was principal at PS 73 in Brownsville, Brooklyn, a school later phased out for abysmal performance. In 2003, the city Conflicts of Interest Board fined her $900 for having an employee chauffeur her kids.

Mary Nelson, who earns $134,994 as Renewal director in District 14, was principal at PS 236 in Mill Basin, Brooklyn, where parents said that she failed to report violent incidents. Then-Councilman Lew Fidler joined a drive to push her out.

Lisa Lauritzen was an assistant principal at Science Skills Center HS in Downtown Brooklyn before being appointed a Renewal “instructional coach.” A DOE investigation found she urged teachers to re-score failing Regents exams. She now makes $136,010.

DOE spokeswoman Devora Kaye defended the hires. “Turning around a struggling school does not happen overnight, and it requires dedicated, experienced administrators who know how to work with and support school staff,” she said.


Left behind by his owners, dog sleeps on mattress on Detroit street

A heart-wrenching photo of a dog sleeping on an abandoned mattress on a street in Detroit has gone viral, after Liz Marie of Auburn Hills, Michigan posted it to Facebook.


Lisa Marie wrote:

‘This picture absolutely breaks my heart, I am literally in tears. Meet Boo, this beautiful boy was left behind with the trash and belongings when the family moved out.’He stayed right by their stuff and never left it, confused and lonely.”

Daily Mail reports, Oct. 21, 2016, that a neighbor saw Boo sleeping on the bare mattress and contacted numerous animal services, but none of the shelters would come and take Boo.

Then Detroit Youth and Dog Rescue founder Devin Oliver heard about Boo. Mike Diesel of the rescue began visiting Boo to build up trust with the dog, spending a total of 11 hours using sausage McMuffins to earn Boo’s trust. Finally, Boo allowed Diesel to take him to a veterinarian, where he was diagnosed with heartworm.

Boo has started treatment and once he’s clear of heartworm he’ll go into foster care until he finds a permanent family.

Oliver told the Daily Dot the shelter doesn’t have a physical location but works with foster families. He said they’ve rescued 75 animals.

Here’s a video of Boo:

Several people have contacted Oliver and Diesel on Detroit Youth & Dog Rescue’s Facebook page, expressing their interest in fostering and adopting Boo.

Black Trump supporters: He’s not a racist

Watch two black Americans tell reporters Donald Trump is not a racist.

Both men are wise to the MSM’s lies.

Beginning at the 0: 16 mark:

Black man to CNN reporter: “I’m down here to make sure that I express my support for Mr. Donald Trump, and I’m fighting back against people like Black Lives Matter with CNN support, along with the Hillary Clinton Foundation and the Bill Clinton Foundation — the traitors to this country.”

CNN reporter: “What do you think about the fact that white supremacists support Trump?”

Black man: “It doesn’t matter. That’s their right to free speech. I’m sick of this racist divide, and CNN is always doing that, always divide and conquer. People have the right to choose whatever they want. What the hell that’s got to do with Donald Trump? He’s not a racist! I’m sick of that. It’s a scam, and I know it’s not going to get on CNN. We’re sick of you media.”

Beginning at the 0:08 mark:

Reporter asks black man named Ronnie Simpson: “So why are you out here today?”

Ronnie: “You know, I am a Trump supporter. I don’t know if I would vote for him, but I have to support what he’s standing for because I’ve been seeing all this opposition coming from Bernie, Hillary supporters and sitting there talking about ‘We’re liberal, we just want peace’. Yet they throw eggs at you and punch you in the mouth because they’re peaceful and loving.

I saw what went down in Southern California. It got to me. I had to actually come out here and actually talk about what’s going on. [Note: Ronnie was referring to a man who was assaulted by a mob in El Cajon, California, for wearing a Trump “Make America Great Again” cap.]

These people don’t want to talk to you, that’s the problem. They sit there and say they don’t have double standards and they’re not hypocritical. They’ll come up to you and just yell and scream like you’re just nobody: ‘We hate you, you’re racist, you’re misogynist, you’re homophobic.’ I have black friends, I have white friends, I have Mexican friends, and supposedly I’m a racist! Wow, that’s crazy.

My family is black, we’re all mixed, okay. So it has nothing to do with race. I think Trump is really just trying to get the sovereignty back in America when he’s talking about the borders, like he’s not saying deport all Muslims, deport all Mexicans. He’s talking about the drug pushers, he’s talking about the criminals, he’s talking about them. He’s not talking about good people that are going to work every day and paying their bills. There’s just too many of these misconceptions by the hype of the mainstream media, and people just kind of buy into it because of the herd mentality.”

Bravo, my brother in the red t-shirt!


Bravo, my brother, Ronnie Simpson!
