Larry Flynt: Ted Cruz more dangerous than Trump because he actually believes ‘the crap’ he says

Published

on

In an interview with the Daily Beast, publisher and gadfly Larry Flynt took some shots at the GOP presidential front-runners, warning that Texas Senator Ted Cruz is much more dangerous than Donald Trump because he actually believes “the crap” he says on the campaign trail.

Flynt got in some digs at easy target Donald Trump, saying he probably has a “3-inch dick,” while comparing him to Italian fascist Benito Mussolini.

“There have been other people in history that have been a lot like Trump. I just watched a documentary about Mussolini and it’s uncanny the resemblance they have, not only in their speech but their whole persona,” Flynt explained. “Trump controls what I call the low-information voters, the low-hanging fruit. I think very few intelligent people are going to be voting for Donald Trump.”

Turning to former rival Marco Rubio ludicrous attempt to boost his flagging campaign by making jokes about the size of Trump’s penis, Flynt said there might be something there.

“I definitely think there’s a lot of truth there. Not necessarily in relation to a man’s fingers, but the kind of cars he drives and the kind of buildings he builds, it all has to do with trying to compensate maybe for a lack of manhood. Trump’s probably got a 3-inch dick,” he stated.

According to Flynt, he believes the Democratic Presidential candidate will be former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and that she can defeat both Trump and Cruz. But he warned that Cruz may be a greater threat to the country because, unlike Trump, he believes every word he says.

“Despite Hilary’s problems I think she’ll beat Trump or Cruz, either one. I think the Republican Party can’t recover from this,” Flynt explained. “Trump has offended about every group he can except white men. The only difference between Trump and Cruz is Trump just says all this crap but Cruz believes it — and that’s what makes him so dangerous.”

Flynt went on to endorse Clinton, calling her the “the most qualified person running.”

“That’s what you got to do when you look at both parties: you see who’s running and you evaluate them not on party but individually, which one is best equipped to be president. And I think Hillary is,” he explained. “We have some important Supreme Court nominations coming up and foreign policy will be a central part. I think people interested in having more security and less turmoil in the economy will want somebody levelheaded like Hillary.”

Internet cheers ‘real president’ Hillary Clinton for ‘eviscerating’ Trump over lie Google ‘manipulated’ millions of votes

Published

on

Hillary Clinton has been pretty quiet lately, perhaps sitting in her Chappaqua home with Bill and doing whatever it is former Secretaries of State and former Presidents do.

But a tweet President Donald Trump posted Monday move her to enter the spotlight once again, if only for a moment.

Trump posted a huge lie, a claim that somehow search and advertising behemoth Google "manipulated" up to 16 million more votes for Hillary Clinton. It's so preposterous that it's already been debunked, but don't expect a Trump retraction.

"Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election! This was put out by a Clinton supporter, not a Trump Supporter! Google should be sued. My victory was even bigger than thought!" Trump tweeted.

Trump’s outrageous claims of voter fraud have a clear goal: Refusing to accept defeat in 2020

Published

on

A brand new Fox News poll shows Donald Trump well behind the top four Democratic candidates for president, with Joe Biden topping the list at 12 points ahead of Trump. Don’t get happy, though, or else we “tempt the wrath of whatever from high atop the thing,” to quote "The West Wing." We’re still a long way from the 2020 election and roughly a gazillion things could dramatically alter the landscape of the campaign.

Trump, on the other hand, is totally losing his shpadoinkle over the poll results.

Baptists unanimously vote out lesbian couple over same-sex marriage: ‘It was more out of spite’

Published

on

A lesbian couple from Mississippi says they were asked to leave their Baptist church over their relationship.

Mary Catherine Trollinger and her partner Olivia Jennings were notified by letter that they were no longer welcome at Gracewood Baptist Church in Southaven, where they met last year, reported WATN-TV.

Their pastor, Barry Baker, signed the letter, which stated he had warned them against pursuing an "unbiblical" and "degrading" same-sex relationship, and told the couple they had been unanimously -- and "sadly" -- voted out during a special business meeting at the church.
