We are all horrible human beings.  You wouldn't know, unless you are one too.  Look in the mirror.  Then be chastised.

I looked in the mirror as you requested.  I decided, logically, that I was a rather fine person and had little to be ashamed of as an adult.

And oh yeah, I meant 8 years they talked like this about Obama. This is barely even news
It likely wouldn't have been news if Trump hadn't first declared that Obama didn't properly perform his job informing/comforting bereaved military families.  Now the accusation is boomeranging right back to him.  The media didn't create this gaffe.

Are you saying that Trump is a transvestite?  Giuliani is one.  They need all the gaffs they can get ;-))

Heres the thing with Trump.

At this stage, seeing so many posts on forums each day of the next ridiculous, outlandished, crude, obnoxious, backwards and deceitful things he's done, I just have to wonder now why is anyone posting this stuff and still acting surprised by any of it?

He's a clown, a Saturday morning cartoon villain, if you give attention to his bs your just giving him the attention he wants, and honestly whatever mess he causes will be dealt with when the next guy or girl comes along.

So I hope.  But this clown still has a surprisingly large following.  Granted, they're complete idiots, but we have lots of complete idiots here.  I worry that we won't get back on track when the Orange Blunder is ushered from office - that this is the new normal for us.

As I've said before, america's survived Nixon, two Bush's and Ulysses S. Grant, I think it'll be fine.

You're right, telling the pregnant, grieving widow of a soldier who died in combat, "Meh, he knew what he was getting into." isn't bad.


Telling her, "He knew what he signed up for, but when it happens it hurts anyways" is an objectively non-offensive thing to say. It's not bad in any way.

But when one wants to hate someone, one will perceive normal behavior from them to be evil.

If the same thing was said by anyone who you weren't already predisposed to hate, you wouldn't care - at most you would think, "it could be worded slightly better but whatever" and you fucking know it. You could make the argument that the president should be above creating syntax like a common man would, but if the worst thing the president does is use the same words that a laymen would've, then it's not a fucking problem - at all.

Pussy.

Except more and more countries are saying, "Yeah, honestly, if the Americans voted this guy in... we don't think we can trust the next president either. They have ruined their reputation."

I'm flattered you think we are still trust-worthy, but unfortunately the people in power are increasingly saying, "If one president thinks he has so much power, why won't the next?".

Obviously. That's why she was all smiles and happ... oh, right, the actual victim was upset about it. But you know what, you know better than the people actually affected, don't you?

Wrong again, Bob. In a regular presidency, this would be breaking news that would be talked about for weeks, be it a Republican or a Democrat. This president is so batshit insane and so devoid of any empathy this is buried in the rest of the shit and forgotten within a week.


This is NOT normal behaviour, and acting like it is only encourages it. And we should not pretend for a second that this is normal, and end up making it normal.

I think your likely find the rest of the world, that has common sense, can read about the political culture war going on in america right now and understands the country is divided on the for and against crowd, it doesn't look at america and think the entire country voted for one bad president together, anymore then when we had Tony Blaire over here.

Your also find other countries would be pissed regardless whoever won it, because america has a democracy and other countries don't have that luxury.

Of course you don't care.  You back trump.  How could you care????  trump does not care.  Except for HIM.  You seem to be just like that.  No ethics, no morals, no code of conduct, no backbone, no regard for anything but him and his.  Yeah, I bet you are exactly like that.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?
