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)...

Caputh wrote:
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?
keep going, caputh. 8)

He should. He started it.

Pile it up, another lie for his fan base
https://www.cnn.com/videos/us/2019/08/17/ridiculist-trump-michigan-man-of-the-year-ac360-vpx.cnn

Indefensible. We're in Unicorn territory here. Trump's bragging about something that doesn't exist.
:P
There is a serious illness in his brain.

His tariffs may well be his Waterloo

It's probably what these farmers are thinking...
https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2019/08/16/trump-just-sealed-soybean-farmers-fate/#39b237e81538

We have a wild guess here why Trump never displayed his tax reports.
I think he knew that if he did it would have shown how bad a business he is, and then a lot of folks wouldn't have voted him in.
Secretive and controlling.
:P :P :P :P :P

Well, maybe...
I have to find a cure first. When exposed to too much stupidity, and DB is truly a master at that, it gets on my mind.
Nevertheless, your occasional quotes keep me informed.

WHAT ? No more "nice people" on both sides anymore ?
https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/8/17/20810221/portland-rally-donald-trump-alt-right-proud-boys-antifa-terror-organization

It couldn't be more clear where Trump stands. Like if we needed any more proofs that he's a White Supremacist Racist.

He must not sleep well these days...

But it's only a poll... We've been fooled before.
I just hope it will stay that way for 2020

"[T]hink what my Poll Numbers would be if we had an honest Media, which we do not!" (Trump)

Think what your poll numbers would be like if the USA goes into recession---

Navarro trying to justify Trump's economic China Policy, denying reports from Financial experts.
Trump is losing the trade war and there's no Plan B.
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/18/politics/farmers-china-trade-war-peter-navarro-cnntv/index.html

The next slogan for "STABLE GENIUS" shoul really be
PAY MORE , SELL LESS

Don't you think so too ?
What about you, Pedro ?

Well, I suppose even if most people here don't think much of Trump at least Trump thinks quite a lot of Trump...
"My I.Q. is one of the highest - and you all know it!"
"I will be the best by far in fighting terror"
"I will be the greatest job-producing president in American history"
"I am the BEST builder, just look at what I've built"
"I am the best builder but if that were my building with the crane mishap..."
"I am attracting the biggest crowds, by far, and the best poll numbers, also by far."
"I am least racist person there is"
"I am in Las Vegas, at the best hotel (by far), Trump International"
"I am at Trump National Doral-best resort in U.S."
"Donald Trump's Palm Beach mansion...which I turned into the greatest club in the world"
"Many people have commented that my fragrance, “Success” is the best scent & lasts the longest"
"Many people have said I’m the world’s greatest writer of 140 character sentences."
"Many are saying I'm the best 140 character writer in the world"

Ok, Trump lovers here. Try to say that your idol is not a White Supremacist.
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/19/opinions/portland-protest-antifa-proud-boys-opinion-obeidallah/index.html

Antifa would be declared an "ORGANIZATION OF TERROR" but not the "PROUD BOYS" ???
That's what Trump said. Not a word against the "PROUD BOYS", some of them having already been arrested
in the past.
Trump's hypocrisy couldn't be more evident.
TRUMP IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST RACIST

NO ONE HERE CAN'T SAY THE CONTRARY.


Not even you, Pedro !

Trump has divided the country in half. It could lead to a new Civil War if we let him continue.
So 2020 is mandatory. You have to get him out of the WH.
:evil:
