So long as the fallout is limited to this, I think he's fine.
    I agree with you, I think he handled the press conference very well. If he's lying, he does it well.

    He will get asked a few more times, then go off like the fat assed bully he is. He is done as a politician.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It is too soon to tell. So long as he can maintain plausible deniability he is probably good to go. Of course the media is going to keep gnawing away now that they have their teeth into it, so who knows what lies ahead.

    Naaaa.

    Many political figures had moronic followers and advisors and didn`t fall because of their stupidity.

    I remember 2 years ago an adviser to a German politician hired private detectives to nonstop spy on the opposition candidate.

    It had legal consequences for the advisor but not for the politician he was "advising".

    A thought just came to mind: If he does go on to run for president, how much scrutiny will be placed on traffic patterns and aberrations across the country leading up to the election?

    There is no doubt but that the story will be part of the campaign and it will probably be supported by a bunch of other stories. In that respect it's just typical campaign trash.
