John Oliver had a strong message for Donald Trump during his HBO show Sunday night: "drop out" of the race.

On his "Last Week Tonight", Oliver said Trump had come to a "fork in the road" with the resignation of his campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and that he believed the Republican nominee only had two options. One, either continue with his campaign and potentially lose -- and, he said, a loss would be "disastrous" for Trump's brand or simply end it now.

"If you keep going, you're going to spend the next 11 weeks ramping up hatred in speeches, injecting poison into the American bloodstream that will take generations to remove, and denying the country the contest of ideas that a presidential campaign should actually be," he said. "And after that, you're either going to win or you're going to lose, and I think both of those scenarios end pretty badly for you. Which is why, Mr. Trump ... I would like to propose to you a third option. That is, drop out. Simply drop out, and tell America this entire candidacy was a stunt. A satire designed to expose the flaws in the system."

Oliver said that even if Trump managed to somehow win the election, he ultimately wouldn't be happy. "Then he actually has to run the country," he said. "That means living in government housing, conversing with fully clothed women, and traveling in a plane that doesn't even have his name on it."

Sunday's episode marked the final episode of "Last Week Tonight" before it goes on a month-long hiatus.

When people questions what is wrong then why make them a bad person?  Thampy Chacko never stood for what is wrong...just think why he won the casender in court?? Because he was RIGHT!  When people try to cheat the system then there will be people to look the other way...but a true leader is someone who stands for what is right....map is such a poor example of leadership.   Fokana split because they realized that they couldn't get the control they wanted...so they left....come on people stop with this comments....do something for the good...and stop worry about age...age is just a number...why people like Bernie sanders??? He is old...but he was a true leader

Thampy Chacko, you are so old to lead FOKANA. Convention in Philadelphia is a good idea and give a chance to younger generations like Sudha Kartha or George Olickal to become president. Please save FOKANA from an another split.

Both Trump and Hilary are proponents of Capitalistic ideology, only difference is in the degree. Trump believes in trickledown economics where the others need to feed from what trickle down from the elite upper class. BJP is also trying to follow the same pattern in India. There is no meaning in arguing that which economic system is better to improve the standards of living of people. The extreme of any system is bad as we saw in the 1929 Great depression in USA. There are many reasons or variables involved the failure of communism and socialism. Lack of incentive to excel is a negative side of socialism and communism. More than the economic system, it is the values of the people that make the system work as it is expected to work. In giving the right values in life, real faith in God is an important factor. Otherwise corruption can bring down the whole setup. It is not true to say that the wealth in America was drained due to NAFTA. American is still the wealthiest country in the world. What is the use of wealth if it is not useful to people. Wealth multiplies when it work in the life of people. Since we have a Global economy now, wealth increases when it is reaches people. So the trade deal with China by Nixon and NAPTA only increased the reach of American wealth and influence. It is from a false sense of security that money gives that some people like to accumulate wealth and hold on to it. Besides, the jealousy in the improved standards of living of others can be factor. Still America is No 1 compared to Russia If a country is very small it is possible to make changes there as in Singapore. It will not work for a large country like India. About illegal immigration from Mexico, if we have to sleep peacefully make sure that our neighbor is not hungry and they also have reasonable standard of living there. Business people almost always work in self-interest.  So assuming that they will help everybody build business empires is wishful thinking. Republican party thinking and Trump’s thinking is as Ragive pointed out in his video is meant for the White people only that they want to make it great to go back to their good old days. Indian business people might think that Trump’s policy will be favorable to business and that they can make more money. Hitler was a courageous and strong leader. But in the end it led to destruction and carnage of Second World War. So instead of voting from gut feeling hope the Indian community will make an informed decision. We have some idea as to what we can expect from Hilary and taking a big risk when it comes to Trump. We do not know as Ragive analyze it.

Let Dr.Anirudhan take over FOKANA for the next one year and conduct the election next year with new delegates and candidates. If you conduct the election this year, not even half of the duly elected delegates won't be present.

Nathan Bedford Forest died in 1877 and Democratic party has been evolved since then.  The Democratic party now is an inclusive party of all including emigrants.  Trump's hidden agenda , now , is to get into power by destroying the system here and bring in all the white supremacist group to rule.  David Duke and the Nazi White supremacist claim that the America is built by White people with European heritage.  But, America is by the people for the people and of the people.  Break the shackle man.

David Duke is a new thing, how about KKK Grand Dragon Nathan Bedford Forrest who spoke at the Democratic National Convention in 1868...???????
Defeat Trump 2016-08-24 06:57:07 News

"America’s white nationalists have spoken, and they’ve spoken loud and clear: Donald Trump is their presidential candidate of choice.

From former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke on down, the proudly racist fringe of the American electorate supports Trump. For his part, the candidate is not welcoming their support.

“I don’t need his endorsement,” Trump told Bloomberg TV of Duke’s praise. “I certainly wouldn’t want his endorsement. I don’t need anybody’s endorsement.”

Although he also told Bloomberg on Wednesday that he didn’t know anything about Duke, in 2000, Trump even cited Duke as a reason he would not run as the Reform Party candidate. “The Reform Party now includes a Klansman, Mr. Duke, a neo-Nazi, Mr. Buchanan, and a communist, Ms. Fulani,” he said at the time. “This is not company I wish to keep.”

But, regardless of what Trump wants, at least eight top figures in the marginalized white nationalist movement said — in recent posts, podcasts, and interviews with BuzzFeed News — that they want Trump. "

Dear Concerned and Koovellor

You guys don't know what you are up to.

David Ernest Duke is an American white nationalist, antisemitic conspiracy theorist, Holocaust denier, politician, and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan.

After failing to forcefully disavow one-time Ku Klux Klux Grand Wizard and current Louisiana senate candidate David Duke and hiring Breitbart News Network chairman Stephen K. Bannon as his third top campaign aide, Donald Trump is earning wide praise from white nationalist even as he makes a direct appeal to African-American voters.

Trump's goal is by hook or crook get the power and take over congress and senate and eventually make a white America.  So Koovellor can start packing things ready. Please don't forget to take the poster with you.  Probably you can put it up in the front yard of your home at Kerala. 

Vote for  Hillary for a  stable America.  she is a better crook than Trump.

Remember, the KKK founder was a  delegate of the Democratic party!!!

Rajiv Malhotra and Trump has something in common. Both are divisive racist people. If Trump is associated with radical KKK and Nazi Supremacist group, then Malhotra is associated with radical RSS.  Most of the followers of these two wicked people are either uneducated or lack analytical thinking.  There are fourteen million followers for Trump and ready to act upon the request of their leader Trump. It is very sad to see Koovellor and family standing in the crowd holding the placard.  I am glad that Trump did not see him otherwise he would have asked his security to take that little Indian guy out of the meeting.  For Asians Hillary is the best candidate.  Vote for Hillary not for the flip-flop crooked racial supremacist Trump.  Vote Hillary Clinton for president.

NAMAM stands for Nair Mahamandalam. Madhavan Nair has been removed from the Kerala Chambers. He doesn't have any support only paid media does.
