Great video of Trump being bashed by John Oliver in this link:

Without going too far into this, it is astoundingly pathetic that he has any support.  The guy lies constantly, contradicts himself within the same day and is unbelievably dismissive of everything.  He acts like a small child.  Not that the Republican party have a great field of candidates but while Trump isn't "establishment politics", he's considerably worse.

The people voting for him are 100% more terrifying than Trump actually is. He knows exactly what he's doing and he knows exactly what he has to say to win votes, so even he knows most of what comes out of his mouth is bullcrap.

I'm sorry. I'll never not think this is straight out funny. There's a legit possibility of a President Trump and it's not even that outlandish. It's just a continuation of everything we've seen from American politics over the years.

Honestly, the funniest thing about it? I can't even sincerely say I think he's the worst Republican nominee. At the very least with Trump I think there's so much cynicism with what he's doing I don't think he's representing deeply held beliefs. I don't think that's true of his opponents.   
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.

Yeah, that goes back to what I said a bit. Who knows what Trump will do as a President. He's campaigning on a platform of building walls and banning Muslims, but he's saying those things strictly to get votes. Those aren't actual things he can do if he wins.

Right? This discussion barely qualifies as discussing politics. The guy might as well be running on a platform of free moon lasers and sending more men to the Night's Watch.

He's the American Silvio Berlusconi.

And he was by all accounts terrible for Italy.

The thing is there are other politicians and celebrities endorsing the guy.  It's really scaring me that he could be elected.

He could get the Rupublican nomination, but even that's looking like it's going to be a problem.  The party is looking like their going to submarine him.

Hillary Clinton would absolutely love to go up against Trump, and I think he'd get trounced by her.

Remember, right now the only people that are actually doing any "voting" are just the delegates of the parties.  Put it to a popular vote, and I think he gets smoked.

Yeah I feel like there's going to be a decent amount of current Cruz/Rubio supporters who would be ok with voting for Clinton/against Trump in the general election. Whereas if Trump didn't get the Republican nomination their votes would 100% stay on the Republican side, because heaven forbid they have a female president.

On a side-note: how much longer until they've confirmed who gets the nomination on each side? I know Super Tuesday has more or less made it Trump and Clinton, but when does that become official?
