Nearly every Navy SEAL embarrassed by President Trump, Matthew Dowd told

One thing the media should have learned from the 2016 campaign season is that reporters really need to hit the road and do more shoe-leather journalism get in the car and drive to places like downtown Arkansas and talk with the people who live there.

ABC News chief political analyst Matthew Dowd recently had a conversation with a Navy SEAL, and what he learned from that one talk was pretty shocking.

Spare a thought for the late night comedy writers whose funny bones were broken by Donald Trump

We’ve come across quite a few progressives, including comedianKathy “He broke me!” Griffin and directorJoss “I think I’m broken” Whedon, who blame President Donald Trump for “breaking” them.

Save a tear, though, for those working behind the scenes in the entertainment industry who have also been broken by the election of Donald Trump. Some of them spoke this week during the Television Critics Association press tour, and Variety was there with the sad story.

Trump Entertainment files for bankruptcy!/ReformedBroker/status/509307558558183424

Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc., a company founded by Donald Trump, will file for bankruptcy this week.

Via the Press of Atlantic City:

The company oversees the Trump Plaza, which will close on Sept. 16, and the Trump Taj Mahal, which has been the subject of bankruptcy rumors for weeks.

Donald Trump has a 10 percent interest in the company and has asked that it remove his name from the casinos.

We are sad for the casino employees who will lose their jobs. As for Trump, he will presumably have more time now for politics, including birther conspiracies and accusing former President George W. Bush of murder.

Fortunately for him, he’s still filthy rich (thanks in part to the large inheritance he received from his wealthy dad).

Just remember: It’s not your fault you’re not as smart as he is.

Trump quotes from newspaper endorsement that says he’s not fit for POTUS

So, this tweet bashing Marco Rubio from Donald Trump allegedly quoting from the Sun Sentinelin Florida caught our eye…

…Fact Check: TRUE!

Here’s what the Sun Sentinel editors wrote about Marco Rubio:

But a vote for Rubio should be more than a protest vote.

Rubio lacks the experience, work ethic and gravitas needed to be president. He has not earned your vote.

But before fans of Donald Trump get too excited, they wrote basically the same thing about Trump:

Here’s more:

Trump would shake up Washington, no question. He might even unite Republicans and Democrats against a common enemy himself. But given his smug, erratic, often petulant demeanor, do you really trust him with the keys to our nuclear arsenal?

The presidency is serious business, not reality television. Trump may be entertaining, but he lacks the experience and temperament to be president. He does not deserve your vote.

FWIW, they refused to endorse anyone in the upcoming primary:

HuffPo moves Donald Trump coverage ‘back’ to news section

Back in July, the Huffington Post devoted its home page to a photo of Donald Trump and the headline, “You’re Fired! From Our Political Reporting.” What followed was “An Important Note On Our Coverage Of Donald Trump’s ‘Campaign.’”

In short, the editorial board of the Huffington Post declared Trump a “sideshow” and announced that any future coverage of Trump would be found under HuffPo’s entertainment section. HuffPo’s adherence to its own rule was spotty at best, but tonight, the Huffington Post has another important announcement:

HuffPo, smelling blood in the water as Trump announced a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” just couldn’t hold out any longer. Arianna Huffington herself declaredin a lengthy essay that, from now on,the Huffington Post will“not only be covering the ways Trump’s campaign is unique in recent American politics, but also the disastrous impact it continues to have on his fellow candidates and the national conversation.” Or it could just cover the news as news. Or not bother at all.

Something tells us the whole “covering Trump under our entertainment section” smackdown didn’t sting quite like it was meant to.

Punk’d loser: How big of a crybaby is Donald Trump? THIS big!/JosiahMcElroy/status/516604242300514304

Dude. Just when you thought Donald Trump couldn’t get more pathetic, he proves you wrong!

I thought I was being nice to somebody re their parents. I guess this teaches you not to be nice or trusting. Sad!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2014

As Twitchy reported, the buffoon fell for a hilarious joke tweet and retweeted it. He then swiftly bravely ran away and deleted his retweet, of course. Lesson learned? Not so much.

"@realDonaldTrump I thought I was being nice to somebody. I guess this teaches you not to be nice or trusting" Is that what it teaches him?

— Stupid History Pics (@historyinflicks) September 29, 2014

@realDonaldTrump Maybe it's a sign that you should stop retweeting "Pro you" tweets Donald? It's not very becoming…

— Holly Hollywould (@itshollywould) September 29, 2014


It got worse.

Some jerk fraudulently tweeted that his parents said I was a big inspiration to them + pls RT—out of kindness I retweeted. Maybe I’ll sue.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2014


Twitter users gave him the business and it was hilarious.

@realDonaldTrump @AbiWilks "out of kindness"?! Nothing to do with that MASSIVE ego getting a little stroking then?

.@realDonaldTrump You should definitely sue. That wouldn't be hilarious, and make you look like even more of an arsehole at all.

@realDonaldTrump @Mary_MariaMarie Can you sue someone for your own stupidity?

— Tony Hughes (CP) (@TheProtestBoard) September 29, 2014

@realDonaldTrump @a_girl_irl Maybe you should try lawsuits for revenue since all your businesses go bankrupt.

— El Cid (@EnBuenora) September 29, 2014

Oh snap!

And this exit question perhaps explains why revenue is so depleted:
