Five Super-Awkward Moments Lola Zinke Stumped for Trump

Many Republicans are fleeing the Trump campaign as fast as their legs can carry them. What we learn about Trump every day just keeps getting worse – and worse.  But a few remain, clinging to the wreckage–including Ryan Zinke and his wife Lola.

Lest you doubt that being a Trump surrogate must be one of the most humiliating jobs in the world, take a look at these recent Trump events with Lola Zinke.

At this point, one has to wonder whether this is actually helping Trump–or whether the basic human instinct to cringe on her behalf is the lasting impression we’re left with.

1 – Appearing at the event at which it was first reported that “Trump now says he plans to legalize some undocumented immigrants” (Univision) Lola Zinke appears to have assumed the mantle of referring to Mexicans as “criminals or rapists,” saying:

“No one wants criminals or rapists here,” [Lola] Zinke said. “But it’s impossible to deport 11 million people. Trump realizes the contributions the Hispanic community has made to our military. He understands Hispanic values and the contributions of our community,” she added.

and also

“Trump is aware that he cannot deport 11 million people,” says Lola Zinke… Zinke, the daughter of a Peruvian, is a San Diego lawyer familiar with illegal immigration issues, who says she believes deportation is not the solution. “It doesn’t make sense to force undocumented [immigrants] to go back to their countries to regularize their situation. Trump himself mentioned a possible solution: let them do it at the embassies or consulates of their countries,” she said.


2 – That same day, the Trump campaign, dubbing her “Lolita Zinke,” featured Lola Zinke in a press release titled  “Trump Meets with National Hispanic Advisory Council for Trump” (a.k.a. Trump meets with a handful of people his own campaign recruited to support him in front of the press) Source: Rhode Island Latino.


3 –  Then the very next day, the RNC puts out a statement saying of Lola Zinke’s Univision event, “Trump did not say or suggest that he was open to granting any legal status-amnesty-to any illegal aliens in the United States at his campaign’s National Hispanic Adviso ry Council meeting as reported in BuzzFeed and Univision.”

Here’s what Buzzfeed wrote:




4 – Then in October, on the very same day the nation heard Trump on a bus boasting about grabbing women “by the pussy.”  The campaign held a “Women for Trump” bus tour featuring Lola Zinke in North Carolina. No joke.

“Eleven women — all married to current or former members of Congress from across the country”  were bussed in to Gastonia N.C. “in an effort to encourage women to support the Republican presidential nominee who was caught on tape making remarks in 2005 about how his celebrity status allowed him to grab female genitals.”


5 – Finally, we come to the pro-Trump piece she has signed for the Daily Interlake today.  Here, the spokeswoman for the candidate so many have called a racist that it is impossible to decide where to link (how about The Atlantic this time) bemoans “the intolerance of the Modern Democratic Party.” In the op-ed piece she mentions a law degree but stops short of claiming to be an attorney.  The tagline this time calls her “as small business woman.”  Perhaps this  is not an intentional distinction, but it strikes an odd note after everything else.  The very same day her op-ed was published, Trump’s campaign manager declared on national television:

“that multiple prominent Republicans––some who oppose Trump, and others, apparently, who support him––perpetrated sexual assaults, and she knows their names.

That is without precedent.”

And so is its awkwardness.   Ugh.

  1. Corrupt Hillary or crass Donald.

    Is this the lesser of two evils of what Hillary did to humiliate, insult, and intimidate Bill’s victims. Don’t forget Monica among the others. Are actions worse than words?

    What do you want, open borders or continued influx of illegal aliens and drugs, 550% increase in Syrians refugees or extreme vetting, a new heath care system, coal jobs back, a keystone pipeline, constitutional Supreme Court Judges, fair trade and jobs, continued ‘pulverization’ of Aleppo and broken Hillary promises like free tuition.

    Feel the Bern or is it Burn.

    CNN Money:
    In a hacked email published by Wikileaks, Democratic National Committee official Donna Brazile appeared to tell Clinton campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri that “from time to time I get the questions in advance.” The March 12 email foreshadowed a question asked by TV One host Roland Martin at the March 13 town hall.

    What about Hillary open borders: Mexican Cartel, Columbia FARCS, El Salvadoran, MS-13 gangs, Somalians, Syrians, impact to our schools, health care (go to Phoenix and check out a emergency room), impact to welfare, food stamps and of course our taxes.

    Chicago Tribune
    A department spokesman, wrote that unspecified “DOJ folks” told him there was a court hearing planned soon in the case. The name and email address of the person who shared the information with Fallon had been deleted.
    The State Department’s internal watchdog concluded in an audit released that Clinton ignored clear written guidance that her email setup broke federal record-keeping rules and could leave sensitive material vulnerable to hackers.

    NY Post – Abe Lincoln, what a joke. Another Hillary Bern/Burn, Bernie when are you going to wake up? Hillary is in the pocket of the big banks and will forget the voters. More big money speeches like she did when she was the Secretary of State. Forget free tuition and forgiven school loans. More pandering to Bernie. Has Bernie been promised a cush job in her administration or is he just gullible or stupid?

    While her aides considered potential political fallout from the release of the speeches, Clinton refused requests from Democratic rival Bernie Sanders to make them public.
    In one speech, Clinton told investors she had one thing in common with them — she was part of the top 1 percent and “far removed” from her middle-class upbringing.

    NYT – Clinton Foundation
    Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

    Benghazi, were they in the situation room or their front rooms? And drones were overhead.

    Benghazi, Whitewater, and on and on and on.

    2nd Amendment Rights. Montana – You can carry in luggage. In Montana a purse is considered luggage. Montana women effectively do not need a carry permit. What would Hillary do about this? Don’t mess with Montana women! You may regret it.

    Top 10 Clinton scandals exposed by WikiLeaks

    By Kelly Riddell – The Washington Times – Wednesday, October 12, 2016

    The ongoing WikiLeaks dump of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails has exposed the corruption and cronyism of her campaign and time in office. Everyday there are more revelations of wrongdoing, so much so, it’s hard to keep up with. So here’s the top 10 double-dealing, dishonest discoveries uncovered thus far.
    1. Mrs. Clinton had cozy and improper relationship with the mainstream media.
    CNN contributor and then adviser of the Democratic National Committee Donna Brazile gave the Clinton campaign advanced notice of a CNN town hall question that she thought may give Mrs. Clinton pause. Mrs. Clinton’s campaign lauded a New York Times reporter for “teeing up” stories for them, and ABC’s George Stephanopoulos for hammering home their talking points. The Boston Globe helped Mrs. Clinton’s team maximize her presence in New England during the primaries and CNBC’s John Harwood bragged to them about dogging Donald Trump during a Republican primary debate he moderated.
    2. The State Department paid special attention to “Friends of Bill.”
    After the massive 2010 Haiti earthquake, a senior aide to then-Secretary of State Clinton repeatedly gave special attention to those identified by the abbreviations “FOB” (Friends of Bill) or “WJC VIPs” (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs), referring to the former president. The emails show Mrs. Clinton’s State Department prioritized and benefited Mr. Clinton’s friends in the $10 billion recovery effort. The State Department also polled the popularity of Mr. Clinton in Haiti and shared the results with him.
    3. Mrs. Clinton argued for “a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders.”
    Mrs. Clinton’s dream for America looks a lot like the European Union. She reportedly told investors in a paid speech to Brazilian Banco Itau in 2013: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, sometime in the future with energy that’s as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere.” Without borders, there are no countries, including the United States.
    4. The Clinton campaign was in touch with Department of Justice officials regarding the release of her emails.
    Brian Fallon, Mrs. Clinton’s spokesman and former Justice Department staffer, appeared to have discussions with sources inside the DOJ about ongoing open records lawsuits requesting access to her emails while serving as secretary of state. In an email from May 2015, Mr. Fallon said that “DOJ folks” had “informed” him about the upcoming status conference in one of the lawsuits.
    5. The Clinton camp was tipped off to the release of the Benghazi emails.
    In April 2015, Clinton campaign Deputy Communications Director Kristina Schake referred to a “tip” from a source regarding when the State Department planned to release Mrs. Clinton’s Benghazi emails. Mrs. Clinton’s lawyer Heather Samuelson followed up on the tip, writing: “Latest: Still aiming for Friday, but potential it gets delayed until early next week because still moving through interagency review process. Will check back tomorrow and keep you posted. Quick update on this — DOS says the release of the 300 will likely happen on Thurs or Friday. Will keep you posted as I hear anything further on my end. Thx.”
    6. Mrs. Clinton admitted sometimes her public and private positions differ.
    In a 2013 speech before the National Multi-Housing Council, Mrs. Clinton indicated her public positions may differ with her private positions, because politics is an ugly business.
    “Politics is like sausage being made,” Mrs. Clinton said. “It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody’s watching, you know, all of the backroom discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.”
    7. Mrs. Clinton’s spokesman mocked Catholics and evangelicals as “severely backwards.”
    Hacked emails show Mrs. Clinton’s campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri and other Clinton allies openly talking about Catholics being “severely backwards” and charging that they don’t know “what the hell they’re talking about.” The April 2011 discussion between Ms. Palmieri and John Halpin, a senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress, mocks media mogul Rupert Murdoch for raising his children in the Catholic Church and said that most “powerful elements” in the conservative movement are all Catholic.
    8. Mrs. Clinton admitted she has a hard time relating to the struggles of the middle class.
    In a 2014 speech for Goldman Sachs and BlackRock, Mrs. Clinton admitted her riches and public personai lifestyle isolated her from the financial struggles of most of the country, saying her memories of her childhood is how she connects now to everyday Americans.
    “Obviously, I’m kind of far removed because the life I’ve lived and the economic, you know, fortunes that my husband and I now enjoy,” Mrs. Clinton said of relating to the middle class.
    9. Mrs. Clinton campaign used Benghazi as a distraction from the email scandal.
    Mrs. Clinton’s campaign tried to make her email scandal disappear during the Benghazi probe by trying to conflate and confuse the two separate incidents. Mr. Podesta told aides in March 2015 to steer the media’s attention from the email scandal to the House Benghazi investigation, which they felt had already been painted in the media as a Republican witch hunt.
    10. The Clinton team strategized on how to delay releasing emails, knowing it was against the law.
    After receiving a subpoena for her emails, Clinton insider Phillipe Reines in March 2015 discussed strategies to use as an excuse not to release all of her emails. It appeared to constitute a conscious effort of the Clinton camp to frustrate and delay a congressional subpoena. Mr. Reines said of the emails: “Not flippantly, and maybe just from Nick’s [Merrill, Clinton spokesman] mouth — but rather than going around on how to release the 55k let’s just be for what’s happening and use this as an excuse. Because we can say even if State has equities, not providing them would put her in legal jeopardy OR we can say happy for them to have it, happy for them to have them as soon as State is comfortable.”

    • I didn’t read any of that crap.

      • He was saying Hillary and her cronies act like most political animals. compared to the draft-dodging,racist sexual predator and aspiring dictator T rump the choice is pretty clear. We need SCOTUS appointees who will overturn Citizens United and uphold Roe v Wade. We need action on climate change. We need a 50% hike in the minimum wage. We need to elect Democrats.

  2. Hey Bill, why don’t you try writing a comment in your own words instead of pasting someone else’s work. Has it ever crossed your mind to ask why WikiLeaks only seems interested in hacking Democrats. How about Assange finding the 12 million missing emails from the Bush/Cheney administration stored on a RNC server. The missing material just happens to be from the time period Bush was ginning up support for the invasion of Iraq. And maybe you should ask yourself if it’s a good idea to elect a man for President when Russia, North Korea, and China like him also. Do you think they want Trump for Pres cause he’ll be good for America? And finally, you can fill a book with all the reasons Trump shouldn’t be President and all the information came out of his mouth! You don’t have to take anyone else’s word for it. Trump has been telling the world what a POS he is for years. Like the monkeys who see, hear, and speak no evil, you just have to take your blinders, remove the ear plugs and listen.

    • Cat, maybe it’s because Hillary’s private server and the DNC’s total ignorance of cyber security. This is hard to fathom with Hillary as a US Senator for two terms, member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and Secretary of State not knowing more about of security of sensitive information. Is this the crowd you want to trust with the football?

      Good point, we should elect Hillary since she is already paid for by the $2.35 million Russian donation to the Clinton Foundation to clear the US Uranium deal through the State Department. Why would we sell uranium to Russia?

      Reasons may be many for Trump not being good for America, but many more for reasons for Hillary. Corrupt Hillary or crass Trump. I will admit this is not a great choice, but look at the policies presented by both, jobs, trade, immigration, safety/security, genocide in Aleppo, education, healthcare, etc.

      • Bill, comparing any mistakes made by Hillary as opposed to the criminal, narcissist, misogynist, racist behavior of Trump is like comparing an elephant to a mouse. There is no comparison! Is Hillary perfect, no. Considering the manner in which the GOP has been throwing mud (and the kitchen sink) at her since Bill first won the White House, I’m not surprised she wanted her Secretary of State emails on a private server. Should she have? Probably not. Perhaps you should look at her record as a Senator for New York. You will find she worked her butt off and got along well with Senators from both sides of the isle. Her constituents liked her work ethic also. But best of all with Hillary Clinton we have a tough, smart, well informed, experienced, centered, NORMAL, human being who actually raised her own child, and has spent her life working in public service. As opposed to Agent Orange who has spent his entire adult life being the biggest jerk, creep, thief, con-artist, liar, and bigot who does not even love his own wives or daughters enough to treat them with respect, much less the women of the United States. He reminds me of a man named Doug Guill who is locked up in Deer Lodge now, I believe. He was tried and convicted of raping his own daughter, starting when she was about 6 years old. Sanders county put him away for 50 years. If you Goggle the story, you’ll understand why Trump disgusts and disturbs me so much. As for the uranium sale to Russia, sound like some Brietbart BS. That crap would have to be proven to me by non-partisan believable sources. And that is one of the biggest differences between Trump and Hillary. Everything awful and disgusting about Trump came out of his own mouth. Most of the crap that circulates about Hillary came from the GOP, the RNC, Brietbart, Faux News, and other similar sources who throw a bunch of manure at people like Hillary and hope some of it sticks.

        • uranium sale went through 9 distinct agencies for approval-her voice was only one of them. also Hillary’s server wasn’t breached like DNC and government servers were so maybe she was smarter than them to begin with.

  3. Is Lola proud to be one of Trump’s token Latina spokeswomen? T rump has made it clear he rather put people like her to work cleaning his toilet, or if he finds her attractive he’ll just grab a handful and do whatever he feels like. How do people like her look at themselves in the mirror when they are betraying their people, and pimping themselves out for someone who has no respect or concern for her or anyone else. Trump has made his bigotry, racism, and misogyny very clear for all to see. I rather go dig ditches for minimum wage than sell my soul to a vulgar, boorish pig like Trump! Don’t know if you have daughters, nieces, sisters, etc., Lola. How do you look them in the eye?

  4. Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets
    And little man, little Lola wants you
    Make up your mind to have, no regrets

  5. Cat Stiles proclaims Trump is a bigot, racist, and misogynist. By using all the MSM buzz words, Stiles once more proves the average American voter is happy to be told what to think – and what buzz words to parrot – by the vast left wing propaganda machine of the Democratic Communist Party.

    Stiles would be more convincing if he included evidence of his allegations, rather than mimicking his masters in the MSM.

    And in a true Democratic society, Stiles would also include examples of Bill Clinton’s multiple bigotry escapades, examples of how the Democratic Communist Party has made blacks and Latinos effectively plantation slaves by chaining them to entitlement programs for 60 years, and examples of Hillary’s misogynist treatment of the many women who’ve accused Bill Clinton of sexual assaults for 25 years.

    I suppose, though, asking for equal evidence against Trump and Hillary is outside the scope of the Democratic Communist Party Dirty Plays Book.

    • Bill isn’t running for President. T rump proves his status as a racist bigot and misogynist by opening his mouth and letting his best words come out.

    • the ‘Democratic Communist Party’ really? Is that all you have, considering that trump has turned the GOP into the Republican Neo-Nazi party, home for all the disaffected right wing extremists.

  6. Clinton operatives on video admit to planning, inciting, fomenting violent attacks on Trump supporters.

    BLM “protestors” smash, destroy car with Trump stickers. Loretta Lynch approves of this action.

    “Gee whiz, Wally! How come big media doesn’t report on this? Are they scared or sumthin?”

    “Yeah, Beave. They’re scared if they tell the truth that Hillary has a private army that’s using Nazi Brownshirt tactics to steal the election, they could all end up suicide victims from 5 gunshots to the head or falling asleep on the train tracks.”

    “You mean those aren’t really suicides, dontcha, Wally?”

    “You’re sure a fast learner, Beaver.”
