In case you missed Trump and Pence on 60 Minutes tonight

The Trump/Pence 60 Minutes Interview Was A Painful Train Wreck

Donald Trump and Mike Pence gave their first joint interview, and what went down on 60 Minutes was painful to watch. (Dear God!  You can say that again! Paul Manafort must have been pulling his hair out by the roots!  How can anyone take this candidacy and the Republican Party seriously?  It's humorous to see people like Sean Hannity trying to sell Trump to Fox viewers, as he interviewed Manafort who was sitting beside him tonight looking in shock, as though he hasn't slept in weeks.)  Even dyed-in-the-wool Republican Bill Kristol ridiculed Trump:

Bill Kristol @BillKristol

You can't make it up.
PENCE: Donald Trump, this good man...will be a great president of the United States.
TRUMP: I love what he just said.  (~.~)

It is beyond preposterous that a Trump could even be at the top of any political ticket -- and yet, there are millions in this country who will vote for this numbskull -- the same ones who voted for the previous idiot Duhmbya Bush, forcing us to endure 8 years of harebrained decisions that took us into needless war on lies. Bush demonstrated to us how moronic he still is (and always will be) by dancing/swaying/singing/laughing to the music played at the memorial service in Dallas, in what was an otherwise solemn tribute to the dead policemen. He made a spectacle of himself, as usual, with many speculating that he must have been drunk.  This is what Republicans think of as Presidential material, so it's not surprising they've come up with Trump, a worthy successor in the GOP Confederacy of Dunces. 

After the 60 Minutes interview tonight, in which poor Mike Pence tried to establish himself as a reasonable candidate but was undermined at every turn by the Giant Id sitting beside him, it is hard to believe that anyone could still vote for this ticket -- and we still have a week of the GOP Convention to go through, listening to Trump tell us how humble he is. The NY Times refers to Trump as The Id that Ate the PlanetDefinition of Id: the most basic part of the personality that wants instant gratification for our wants and needs. The id wants whatever feels good at the time, with no consideration for the reality of the situation.  The WORST POSSIBLE CHOICE FOR A PRESIDENT OF OUR COUNTRY.
