Primary challenge against Trump ?
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/15/politics/joe-walsh-primary-challenge-trump-2020-cnntv/index.html

It probably won't happen (the Reps are too coward) but nevertheless the thought is amusing...

Trump acting like Big Brother...

If he goes farther than that about the rest of the World these women will never be able to return in their "shit" country !

Thank you, MTF, as well, for a very interesting article. I hope your eyes have not completely burned out - I must admit that mine were reddening by the time I reached # 11.

Trump is not open to criticism from anybody.
He wants to be surrounded by YES men. Like those bubble heads toys I had when I was young.

Bas news for "STABLE GENIUS"
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/08/15/trump-rating-down-fox-news-poll-following-mass-shootings/2017726001/
https://www.theroot.com/trumps-going-to-be-big-mad-fox-news-poll-show-the-pres-1837279402

It's only a poll, so no rejoicing.
Polls were so wrong in 2016.
:oops:

But when it's on FOX, Trump lovers will take it seriously cause it must be true !

It IS an excellent post. But because it perfectly exemplifies Caputh's undying need to misquote, misinterpret and completely take out of context almost everything I state, by conveniently leaving out key info through fragmentation, in order to somehow try and distort the truth, but for all who are actually paying attention. He is THE absolute master at it. It's his 'go to' whenever he can't win the argument (which, of course, is very often)...

The stock market is bad?!

The DOW is still the highest it's EVER been pre-2017 (which didn't reach very much beyond 19,000) and is currently well over 25,500!

You idiots are in such denial! ROTFLMFAO!!! :mrgreen:

I know it's only polls but I find it conforting
https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/457645-fox-news-poll-shows-trump-losing-to-biden-warren-sanders-and-harris

I hope these polls are more reliable than the 2016 polls.

Trump thinks the World will come to its end if he's not elected in 2020
https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/457653-trump-says-you-have-no-choice-but-to-vote-for-me-at-campaign

He may thinks he's God. He does what he did for so many years, using fear and lying.
I don't think it will work as much as he hopes.
I sense his fan base is diminishing every day.
There's a limit to being lied to.
A majority of Americans are not that stupid.

Trump's ego is so big that it will make him explode.

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

A normal guy wouldn't mind for something so futile.
Hope his narcisism gets the best of him.

It IS an excellent post. But because it perfectly exemplifies Caputh's undying need to misquote, misinterpret and completely take out of context almost everything I state, by conveniently leaving out key info through fragmentation, in order to somehow try and distort the truth, but for all who are actually paying attention. He is THE absolute master at it. It's his 'go to' whenever he can't win the argument (which, of course, is very often)...


Disco Boy is correct insofar that the end of many of my exchanges with him consist of me, pointing out the foolishness of what he has said by quoting him. Instead of defending said statements, he generally attempts to disown them completely, by claiming they are "misquotes" (a word which he does not seem to understand fully). He then, rather bizarrely, tends to claim that he thus has "won" the exchange.

My patience with him is based on the fact that he seems intelligent enough, in retrospect, to realize that what he has posted looks a bit silly, as he often disowns such quotes. One could only wish that he would be intelligent enough to realize the foolishness of many of his statements before he makes them.

He mirrors Trump in this respect.

It is also interesting to observe how, he disowns the quotes above as being...
a) "misquotes" (which they are not - he wrote those words)
b)"misinterpretations" (which they are not - they are quotes)
c) "out of context" (a term for which he has extremely variable criteria -he has been known to demand the entire content of 2 hour interviews and web pages be copied and pasted, because he didn't like what was being quoted, yet sticks doggedly to his own sig, which is part of a sentence, which is part of an interview in which Zappa states why he would not be a candidate for the Libertarians, as he found a number of their ideas "stupid").

On the other hand, he apparently recognizes said quotes as being his own, as I consciously provided no attribution in the post above myself.

BTW. the people "paying attention" he refers to above would not seem to include himself; he appears to have suffered a bout of narcolepsy whilst composing the post: "but for all who are actually paying attention." ...What?

It does not pay to be overweight...
https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/7x59ma/go-home-start-exercising-trump-fat-shamed-someone-at-his-rally

Read somewhere else that the guy was a Trump fan.
Since they're almost all idiots I don't think that guy will vote Dem.
Cherish the thought of being mocked by Trump.
:P


(...edited a couple hours after . . .)
I WAS SO RIGHT !

https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/457705-trump-calls-supporter-he-mocked-for-having-a-weight-problem
Excerpt (the overweight man is called Dawson):
Dawson said Trump's mockery of him didn’t change his opinion of the president.
"I love the guy," Dawson told Fox. "He’s the best thing that ever happened to this country."


Ah...those Trump fans !
You can lie to them, you can mock them, you can kill them on 5th avenue with an automatic rifle...
They still love the man.

There's a lot of words that comes to my mind when I think of those Trump fans.
SMART is not one of them and STUPID is on top...
And some words I couldn't write down here in the name of decency
:P

Greenland to Trump: Thanks, but we're not for sale
ZEKE MILLER and SETH BORENSTEIN·04:13, Aug 17 2019

Greenland said Friday it's happy United States President Donald Trump has taken an interest in the nation, talking to aides and allies about buying the island for the US, but that it's not for sale.

Following reports that Trump had spoken about the notion of buying Greenland, the semiautonomous Danish territory between the Atlantic and Arctic oceans issued a short statement to clarify it wasn't on the market.

"We see it as an expression of greater interest in investing in our country and the possibilities we offer," the government said.

"Of course, Greenland is not for sale."

Lars Loekke Rasmussen, who served as Danish prime minister until June, weighed in on social media, tweeting "it must be an April Fool's Day joke" and that it was "totally" out of season.

A Trump ally told The Associated Press on Thursday that the Republican president had discussed the purchase but was not serious about it. And a Republican congressional aide said Trump brought up the notion of buying Greenland in conversations with American lawmakers enough times to make them wonder, but they have not taken his comments seriously. Both spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.

Aiming to put his mark on the world map, US President Donald Trump has talked to aides and allies about buying Greenland for the US.

"Because of the unofficial nature of the news, the government of Greenland has no further comments," Greenland said on its website.

The White House hasn't commented on the reports, but it wouldn't be the first time an American leader tried to buy the world's largest island.

In 1946, the US proposed to pay Denmark $100 million to buy Greenland after flirting with the idea of swapping land in Alaska for strategic parts of the Arctic island.

On Friday, residents in tiny Kulusuk on Greenland's eastern coast seemed less than impressed with the possibility Trump may want to purchase their nation.

They included Jakob Ipsen, who has something in common with the US president: Both run hotels. Ipsen's hotel is smaller than a Trump one and provides hands-on service, such as finding boats and driving guests around.

Ipsen noted there's a history of outsiders unsuccessfully wanting to take over the giant, mostly barren island.

"Never going to happen. They tried in 1867 without luck. They tried after World War II," Ipsen said.

"It didn't happen then and it's not going to happen now."


AP

https://www.stuff.co.nz/world/europe/11 ... t-for-sale

Ghost note: Reports that upon the successful purchase of Greenland,
President Trump will change Greenland's name, due to his dislike of the colour green,
to either Goldland or Trumpland, are odds on as true as the Donald's last sentence.....

For the sake of the nation, Trump should be put in a coma.
The ONLY ONE who says that things are going fine is "STABLE GENIUS" and his army of brainless zombies

And, according to our proximity, it will hurt Canada too (Happy, DB ?)
Thank you, Mr. Trump. We need that like we need a hole in the head.
Thanks to your stupid followers who'll never get it.
When things are going right, always count on a Rep to mess it badly.
