    Hewlett Packard's Meg Whitman joins CEOs endorsing Clinton

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Calling Donald Trump an "authoritarian character" and a threat to democracy, Meg Whitman, a prominent Republican fundraiser and chief executive of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, endorsed Democrat Hillary Clinton's White House bid late Tuesday.

    "To vote Republican out of party loyalty alone would be to endorse a candidacy that I believe has exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division. Donald Trump’s demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character," Whitman posted on Facebook about the Republican nominee.

    Trump: No regrets about drawn-out discord with dead soldier’s family

    Donald Trump has no remorse about his prolonged hostility towards the family of a slain Muslim-American war hero and appears to be ignoring advice to let go of the feud.

    “Please remember, I was viciously attacked and all I did was respond to it and it ends up being a 4 day story,” he later said in an interview with Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”

    “I don’t regret anything,”

    Big money must stay with establishment,on either side,to continue to get their perks.The same thing that Dems have bitched about for years,now dont seem to carry much weight.It never was about the big money,it was about who was getting it.

    "You had the time. You did not serve," Khan told Cooper. "You should have pinned that back to that veteran's chest and should have hugged him and thanked him." (Purple heart veteran gave Trump a metal).
    Let's face it this Khan is a hack walking all over his hero sons corpse to help the Clinton campaign for who knows what reason when crooked Hillary is involved. My own family has lost marines in combat and I've never seen anyone act like that. They were as much heroes as khans son was.

    Actually many of Trumps statments and behaviors should be cause for alarm...... Clinton should also be viewed with skepticism because of her ties to Wall Street.......among other things.... .
    Most people realize that neither one is going to be a good "choice".... But to defend and excuse Trumps demagoguery just because Clinton has issues as well doesn't make any sense....it just adds to the problem.....

    Demagoguery, which is often associated with dictators as well as very sleazy politicians, appeals to the worst nature of some people..... That should alarm people when a demogogue is running for any political office.....even more so when it's the Presidency.....

    Ok.....at least if we become France...we'll have universal health care..... Lol
    My french needs a lot of work....but there is a lot of Spanish spoken there....and my Spanish is pretty decent.....so I'm good..

    Falconfan, you're a smart person too....if you want to chance it with Trump.... I respect your choice.... In my opinion....he's not the solution nor the anwser to the screwed up world.....but we all have different and divergent viewpoints...... It is nice to have civilized dialog in expressing such diffrences.... Thanks for that!

    So an unnamed expert in foreign policy who is known internationally had Trump supposedly ask him this nuke question repeatedly months ago, and only recently choose to break the story to some agenda driven political hack, and to top it off this Hayden never heard about it, yeah right, if that actually happened it would of spread like wildfire in the foreign policy and intelligence communities and would of seen the light of day in the press shortly after it supposedly happened, that's the real way things work, I get filled in on stupid things and major screw ups that happen at companies that I haven't worked for in years, peers share that stuff.

    Don't have much respect for a man who stands on the coffin of his son spewing political diatribe but that's just me.

    It's gasoline for sure.
    Lets see if more comes out of it, hard to believe the story will just disappear.
    Maybe Scarborough just couldn't keep it inside anymore what someone told him off the record.

    You may be 100% correct it could all be a fabrication.
    Or it could be a huge developing story
    Only time will tell
