Will it be enough to solidify the sheeple?

Meanwhile, in tonight's other key political news, in what many have said is a first for Donald Trump, the presidential candidate expressed regret on Thursday afternoon during a rally in Charlotte, N.C. and apologized for any damage he inflicted with his blunt rhetoric on the campaign trail as the candidate and his revamped campaign staff look to recover from a rough few weeks.

“As you know, I am not a politician. I have worked in business, creating jobs and rebuilding neighborhoods my entire adult life. I’ve never wanted to learn the language of the insiders, and I’ve never been politically correct – it takes far too much time, and can often make it more difficult to achieve total victory."

“Sometimes, in the heat of the debate and speaking on a multitude of issues, you don’t choose the right words or you say the wrong thing. I have done that, and I regret it, particularly where it may have caused personal pain. Too much is at stake for us to be consumed with these issues."

The speech came less than two days after Trump shook up his campaign leadership, naming pollster and former adviser Kellyanne Conway as campaign manager and Breitbart executive Steve Bannon campaign CEO.

Trump's expression of regret has come as a shock to those - mostly liberal pundits - who expected Bannon to reject any efforts by other advisers to polish Trump's message in home stretch of the general election. Conway said she didn't want Trump to lose his "authenticity." Then again, ultimately Trump's biggest "advisor" has always been Trump, both with and without surprises, and the man behind today's stunning pivot, was most likely Trump himself.

In his Thursday speech, Trump attacked Clinton's honesty and promised to never lie and always put voters' interests first. "In this journey, I will never lie to you," he said. "I will never tell you something I do not believe myself. I will never put anyone's interests ahead of yours.

And then he pivoted once more, contrasting his brutish political correctness with Hillary's endless lies.

"Aren't you tired of the same old lies and the same old broken promises?" Trump asked. Trump said that Clinton "has proven to be one of the greatest liars of all time."

"So while sometimes I can be too honest, Hillary Clinton is the exact opposite: she never tells the truth. One lie after another, and getting worse each passing day," he said. Trump continued to criticize the media for focusing on his controversial remarks rather than the problems facing voters.

“The establishment media doesn’t cover what really matters in this country, or what’s really going on in peoples’ lives,” he said. “They will take words of mine out of context and spend a week obsessing over every single syllable, and then pretend to discover some hidden meaning in what I said,” Trump added.

“Just imagine if the media spent this much time investigating the poverty and joblessness in our inner cities. Just think about how much different things would be if the media in this country sent their cameras to our border, or to our closing factories, or to our failing schools.”

Trump added he would not stop ruffling establishment feathers, even if it means conflict with fellow Republicans. “I am glad I make the powerful a little uncomfortable now and again – including some powerful people in my own party. Because it means I am fighting for real change. I am fighting for you."

Who knows, maybe this particular expression of "regret" is all America wanted to hear to give Trump a second chance. After all, if there is one thing all Americans can agree on, is they love each and every underdog story...

No coincidence it's the day after they hired Kelly Ann Conaway

I've long said that he needs to quit pissing people off, that is, if he really wants to get elected. Most people won't vote for someone they feel has insulted them or those they care about, no matter the rest of their message.

Now we watch him light up Killary in the debates
Hopefully, watch for it, they won't say he's beating up on an old defenseless woman...

As for Trump being contrite... let's see how much forgiveness the leftists display... I'm betting not one iota....
