"Shithole countries"
« on: January 14, 2018, 07:09:47 AM »
What an utter moron that man is. He is a disgrace for his nation, an embarrassment, a liability. The idea that people actually voted for him is bizarre.

To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

For 38 minutes yesterday people in Hawaii got ready to kiss their asses goodbye.

http://www.cnn.com/2018/01/13/politics/hawaii-missile-threat-false-alarm/index.html

Where was Trump? Playing golf.

Hours later he tweets about how unfair the press is to him.

Someone hand him a pacifier.

Yep...good times.

A golf ball in the head would also work.

From what read, it seems there's only one person who claims it was said, and another person who said shithole countries is 'basically accurate', while others in attendance agree 'shithole countries' wasn't said. More than likely something was said, just not specifically shithole.

Others in attendance appear to have developed a form of collective "shithole amnesia", finding themselves unable to remember whether that specific term was used.

Which, considering the potential wrath of the president and its potential effect on one's career, is probably a wise thing to have.

That's possible too; though calling countries shitholes doesn't strike as career wrath sort of stuff to confirm or deny about Trump. He's said worse with a microphone and camera in his face, so that alone makes it believable. He's not a silver tongued politician, and his lack of couth is exactly what some people like about him. There doesn't seem to be any reason for him to deny saying it.

He fed them a good line of NY bullshit and they bought it.

The "shithole" comment wouldn't surprise me, what does surprise me is his complete lack of "anything" after the missle threat error in Hawaii.

You had people grabbing their little kids and playing "duck and cover" in the bathtub under a mattress for 38 minutes and totally freaking out...your first words as a president should not be a tweet on twitter about the book some guy wrote about you and how badly the "fake news" treats you. 

You are president, so ACT like one, or at least "pretend" to act like one for one nano second even if it's just for all the ones that voted for your crazy ass and no one else.

It would be career limiting to call the POTUS a liar, so once Trump had denied making those statements it would be a wise move to develop amnesia.

Trump is a serial liar. He lies about all sorts of stuff. I doubt that he has much of a solid grip on reality. If people were going to slander Trump by lying about something he didn't say, wouldn't they be inclined to make up something more salacious than the sort of thing a guy like Trump would consider normal breakfast conversation?

I'd still class the story as more likely to be true than not.

Yep...good times.

They are and it was a major stuff NOT by him but from Hawaii. They wanted to bait him into a military response and he was not biting. Good for him. What did Obama and Hillary do when there was an ACTUAL attack on Benghazi?

I will give you two options

a) Blame it on a video.
b) Do nothing.

I will accept either answer.
I don't want to hear it. Save your complaints to Odeon. Yes, we had decided to drop hostilities. No, I didnt expect that Odeon would do other than start shit again like he always does
You're not going to stick to "a handful people", are you? That would be stupid.
Damned if I won't respond.
So it's on again & you can lay the blame squarely at his feet. Little passive-aggressive bitch

Did he say this and if you say some in that were there in the meeting said so, some also said that he didn't. Do those that said he did have a reason to make something up and have they ever made up similar claims for political reasons?

However, IF we are to talk about Haiti, where did the billions of dollars of aid earmarked for Haiti and managed through the Clinton Foundation go?

Two options:

A) Clinton coffers
B) Administrative fees and to sling to friends and family?

Either option will do.

Naivety as lifestyle.

It's interesting that you feel the need to bring up Obama and Hillary here. As president, he should have addressed what happened, end of story. He (and his supporters) should focus on what he is doing now.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

This is not about Clinton, this is about Trump and his inability to function. It's interesting how you suggest those in attendance lied about what he said but yet, you still feel the need to divert the discussion to Clinton.

This speaks volumes to me.
