Survey of people who know Trump and/or Hillary: what do they think?
This chart is not meant to be a “complete” listing of all such people, just a point of reference. – By Gordon Wayne Watts (Lakeland, Fla.) Sat. 10-15-2016
Chart 1: Here are people who know both Mr. Donald J. Trump and Mrs. Hillary R. Clinton
(placed up top, presumably because **these** people, who know both Presidential
candidates,are more credible, & less biased, than those who only know one or the other)
Mr. Donald J. Trump
Mrs. Hillary R. Clinton
Rudolph “Rudy” Giuliani (former NYC mayor)
Mike Tyson – “Given their history, it should come as little surprise that Tyson is endorsing Trump for president.
“Yeah! Hell, yeah,” he exclaims of Trump 2016. “That shit is the real deal. Listen: I’m a black motherfucker from the poorest town in the country. I’ve been through a lot in life. And I know him. When I see him, he shakes my hand and respects my family. None of them—Barack, whoever—nobody else does that. They’re gonna be who they are and disregard me, my family. So I’m voting for him. If I can get 20,000 people or more to vote for him, I’m gonna do it.”
I ask Tyson, who converted to Islam while in prison, how he could support Trump, who proposed a ban on all Muslims entering the U.S.
“It’s just not gonna happen,” he says of the Muslim ban, shaking his head. “He’s just not gonna do that. Congress just won’t do that. But that doesn’t mean he can’t be president, you know what I mean?”” http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/01/21/mike-tyson-why-i-m-a-muslim-for-donald-trump.html
Wow... I can't find anyone who knows both Clinton & Trump who is neutral... our country is in too much of a political & spiritual divide.
OK, while I support Trump, I'll be that 'neutral' peacemaker – see my recent Election Coverage on www.GordonWatts.com or www.GordonWayneWatts.com where I say lots of nice things about Hillary Clinton (who, by the way, was also an excellent Student Body President, and had a level head & calm demeanor). – I don't support her now, but I must show the most respect for all parties, even when I strongly disagree with policy and/or suspect that they were dishonest, or a bully, in some way [Disclaimer: I don't personally know either Trump or Clinton, but someone must be the neutral voice of reason – to be a peacemaker, so I'll be that person.] ~~GW//

Summer Zervos, former contestant on The Apprentice, “who alleges she was sexually assaulted by Donald Trump, sent an email to Trump’s assistant in April  praising the GOP nominee.
The email and a statement by Zervos’ cousin were released by the Trump campaign Friday afternoon...
“I am completely shocked and bewildered by my cousin, Summer Zervos, and her press conference today. Ever since she was on The Apprentice she has had nothing but glowing things to say about Mr. Trump,” John Barry, Zervos’ first cousin, said in the statement. He went on to say, “That was until Summer invited Mr. Trump to her restaurant during the primary and he said no. I think Summer wishes she could still be on reality TV, and in an effort to get that back she’s saying all of these negative things about Mr. Trump.”
In 2006, Zervos said in an interview that she left the Apprentice “admiring Donald Trump a lot more than when I arrived.” http://dailycaller.com/2016/10/15/trump-sexual-assault-accuser-sent-glowing-email-to-his-assistant-in-april/

He does not have a woman problem.”' http://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/donald-trump-women/12/

“Don King: Trump offers way out of 'racist, sexist' system” – “Washington (CNN)Don King believes Donald Trump is the only candidate who can fix a "corrupt, rigged, sexist and racist" system -- employing several terms the GOP nominee's harshest critics have used to describe him and his campaign.
"Let me submit to a candid world ... about a system that has taken over. One thing everybody is agreeing to that it's corrupt, rigged, sexist and racist. So now no one has offered a way out of that system but Donald J. Trump," the legendary boxing promoter told CNN's Michael Smerconish Saturday.
"He said we will create a whole new system, we will take this system apart," he said. "Everybody should jump on it -- especially black people and the white woman -- because they both have been excluded and they are considered inferior and old property."” http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/24/politics/don-king-donald-trump-african-americans-women/
Melissa Young, a former Miss Wisconsin, shares nominee's concern for her health – “She doesn’t know what each new day will bring in terms of her health. But a former Miss Wisconsin, Melissa Young, said she plans to do all she can with the energy she has left to support Donald Trump’s candidacy for the presidency.
"Until my last breath, I will speak up about this. I want to leave something so great my for my son — to look back and realize that I didn’t have the energy, that my body was failing me, but I still had a voice, and to always stand up for what you know is right. I will always speak up for Mr. Trump until God takes me home," Young told Sean Hannity on Fox News during his broadcast Friday.
Crowned Miss Wisconsin 11 years ago, Young has been terminally ill since the birth of her son, who just turned eight years old. Young competed in the then-Trump-owned Miss USA pageant in 2005, during which she won the "Miss Congeniality" title.
"I will always speak up for Mr. Trump until God takes me home," said Melissa Young.

Anthony Gilberthorpe – “It should be the lead story on every network, but you’ll likely only see it in a few places. It doesn’t change the fact however, that an eye-witness has come forward to say the woman accusing Trump of sexual assault on the plane, was actually pursuing him…
Donald Trump’s campaign says a British man is countering claims that the GOP presidential nominee groped a woman on a cross-country flight more than three decades ago.
The man says he was sitting across from the accuser and contacted the Trump campaign because he was incensed by her account — which is at odds with what he witnessed.
“I have only met this accuser once and frankly cannot imagine why she is seeking to make out that Trump made sexual advances on her. Not only did he not do so (and I was present at all times) but it was she that was the one being flirtatious,” Anthony Gilberthorpe said in a note provided to The Post by the Trump campaign.
In an exclusive interview arranged by the campaign, Gilberthorpe said he was on the flight — in either 1980 or 1981— where Jessica Leeds claimed Trump groped her.
Gilberthorpe, 54, said he was sitting across the first class aisle from the couple and saw nothing inappropriate. Leeds was wearing a white pantsuit, he said, while Trump was wearing a suit and cuff-links, which he gave to his British flight companion.
Indeed, Gilberthorpe claimed, Leeds was “trying too hard” in her attempt to win Trump over.
“She wanted to marry him,” Gilberthorpe said of Leeds, who apparently made the confession when Trump excused himself and went to the bathroom. http://100percentfedup.com/oops-hillarys-hit-woman-lied-trump-groping-hereye-witness-comes-forward-one-flirtatious/

“Monica Lewinsky Endorses Hillary Clinton For President”--
“Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, who was made famous after having “sexual relations” with then-President Bill Clinton in the Oval Office, said on Sunday that she’s “officially endorsing” Hillary Clinton in her bid to win the presidency in 2016, just two hours after Clinton announced her candidacy.
Lewinsky, ironically clad in a blue dress during her interview on CNN, said that Hillary is “the only candidate with a clear and sensible vision for America,” remarking that “she’s on the verge of finally getting through that last piece of glass,” a reference to Clinton’s 2008 concession speech.
“I think Hillary Clinton is exactly the sort of strong, intelligent, responsible leader this country needs,” Lewinsky said. “Her domestic policy experience as a Senator and her foreign policy experience as Secretary of State give her an unrivaled understanding of the many issues our nation is facing today. And while Republicans just want to say `no’ to everything, and have a platform of turning back everything Obama accomplished, Hillary’s campaign is one of ideas. Of making the future brighter.””

“Sally Miller was once a beauty queen with a bright future. Instead, this resident of Little Rock, Arkansas, has spent years fighting what she calls the "Hillary Clinton smear machine." She even traveled as far as China in the mid-1990s to escape what she said was harassment by the Clintons after a 1983 affair she had with then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton came to light.
Miller, now 77 and previously known as Sally Perdue, is set to release a book about her life and her alleged affair with Bill Clinton entitled, "The Beauty Queen: Let No Deed Go Unpublished."”
“Elizabeth Ward Gracen, reigning Miss America and married at the time, originally told friends that Clinton had sexually assaulted her in 1982. It is reported that Gracen has privately condemned the encounter as rape but has publicly claimed it was "consensual," presumably out of fear.” [[Editor: fear of whom? Hillary? Or Bill?
