Who’s standing behind Trump?

The New York victory speech. Standing behind Trump on the left (his right) is Carl Paladino, and on the right is his hot babe of a daughter Tiffany.

I always think that it works for Trump when he features his family at his victory speeches, especially his beautiful daughters. I’m not sure what Carl Paladino brings to the table.

  1. I’m not sure what Carl Paladino brings to the table.

    Old NY guido political street cred?

    Lot’s of height in the Trump family. Even his two daughters in law are YUGE.

    Unfortunately the total Democrat vote was way more than what The Donald got.

    He needs to get the berniebros and the non primary voters.

    • Yeah, the NY Times has a nifty feature where if you hover your mouse above the county, you get the total votes cast. Maybe the others have that too but I was too absorbed in looking at the Times to bother looking gat the others. I was struck by the enormous disparity between R & D votes.

      Last I looked, Kasich won Manhattan.

      • In terms of Manhattan neighborhoods, Trump probably won only the Upper East Side by a landslide, where the wealthiest gentiles reside.

        The Upper West Side is definitely Hillary, because wealthy secular Jews love the Democrats and women in power.

      • JS, why don’t you actually look shit up, instead of making a damn fool of yourself? Kasich won the UES.

    • Carl Paladino brings nothing to the table. Just an IA behind the scenes, and a Republican losing candidate at that.

      This whole Trump savior is a farse for proles, because he is a Manhattan elite, and his children are the same. Proles and their kin, those out in Staten Island and many from the working class areas of NYS share nothing in common with them. These are the people who complain about the upper middle class and wealthy who price out their existence.

        It’s a question of national policy not personal associations and preferences.

  2. O/T, would appreciate input from anyone:

    What happens to Kasich’s delegates if he doesn’t meet the eight-state majority threshold to get on the 1st ballot (assuming the GOPe doesn’t cuck the existing rules)? Would any of them be in play on the 1st ballot?

    I’m guesstimating Trump ends up just shy of 1,237 — something like 10-20 short. The fight for unbound delegates will be yuuge.

    Would appreciate a Lion post analyzing this.

    • Kasich and Rubio will deal their delegates for favors. VP anyone? Supreme Court. Paris ambassador. Whatever. If Trump gets to 1000 delegated (almost guaranteed), he wins on the first ballot.

      • Rubio has no special power of his delegates. But based on Ohio rules, Kasich handpicked those 66 from Ohio, so he has influence over them.

      • re: SCOTUS; Only a sucker would make a deal for something the other party can’t necessarily deliver, because you have no way of knowing if they will try very hard to get it for you.

  3. Tiffany, Hilary, Chelsea, all prole names. Looking forward to a general election of the garish.

    • For sure, Tiffany has always been a stereotypical prole “fancy” name during my life, and Tiffany Trump is younger than I am. Was Hillary a prole name in the 1950s? Is it now? Sounds like an old lady’s name to me. As for Chelsea, it has a bit of the faux-Olde British sound of Brittany, Courtney, etc. that were the heighth of prole fashion in the mid-1980s, but to my ear has never implied low birth as strongly.

      • Tiffany’s mother is named Marla, which is really a low-class name. Hillary was a middle-class school marmy name in the late 40s when she was born, not the 50s. Chelsea is a pseudo-hip name, named for Joni Mitchell’s Chelsea Morning.

        The most cringe-inducing name, apart from Tiffany and Courtney, to me, is Ashley. This is a totally low-prole name for people who think they are rising up in class.

        Truly middle- and upper-class people name their daughters Biblical names (Rachel, Sarah) or English names, like Elizabeth (which is actually Hebrew-derived).

  4. Carl Paladino was a NY co-chair of the Trump campaign. That is why he was standing behind Trump.

    NY primaries are closed primaries, so registered independents could not vote in either the Republican or Democratic primaries. If you were a registered independent and you wanted to change to one of the parties so you can vote in the primary, you had to change your registration 6 months before the election. Trump could not get any votes from independents. I think this is why some of Trumps children could not vote for him. They were registered as independents. This may have reduce the votes for Bernie Sanders too.

    To keep this win in perspective, Hillary Clinton got almost twice as many votes as Trump and even Bernie Sanders got significantly more votes than Trump in NY. NY Republicans like Trump. NY Republicans rejected Cruz, but NY is still a blue state.

  5. His daughter Tiffany is named after the jewelry store. Now THAT is a low class move.

    Trump is definitely old school aristocrat, and is not a mandarin. He is a horse riding, gun shooting old style aristocrat for sure. There aren’t many like him left.

  6. Off-topic, but I just noticed an article supporting your theory of beta-male rage, only the psychologist they interviewed is calling it “damaged masculinity”:

    • It’s going to get worse for any average White male of the Anglo-Prole-Sphere. Multiculturalism and feminist hypergamy will destroy them.

  7. I’m not sure what Carl Paladino brings to the table.

    It is gems like this from a Carl Paladino interview on NPR this morning. In response to a question about whether the Trump campaign was using scare tactics to win support, Paladion replied:

    “People that get onto the Trump bus are very, very frustrated with their government, It doesn’t matter what kind of person is the exterminator, OK? They want the raccoons out of the basement.”


    April 20, 2016 at 2:58 pm

    • What a macroaggression. We all know what he meant by the word “raccoons.”


      April 20, 2016 at 8:23 pm

      • Moolies. They’re animals anyway, let them lose their souls…

  8. Paladino probably has the single biggest personal political network of NY State registered republicans. Supposedly he personally called up the many GOP office holders he had given money to in the past and threatened them to support Trump. His strong support probably tipped some of the districts from 2-1 Trump to 3-0 Trump, in particular because the Trump campaign is disorganized and underfunded.


    April 20, 2016 at 9:28 pm

  9. fyi, the Wikipedia entry for Carl Paladino does not mention the name “Tiffany” in the section about his children.
