Golf ball to the head isn't reliable enough. I've seen it happen. Was at my second spazz school, and this girl called joanne, petite, kinda tiny, not the sort you'd expect a lethal long-range shot like she did, but she did it alright, got one of the care staff from a few hundred meters, right in the back of the head. Dropped the guy instantly, knocked him senseless alright, but he did get up again, without any longterm crippling injury.

Certainly funny as shit to watch though, tiny girl belting the golf ball with her driver and one-shot takedown of the staff member, a real elite sniper-style shot, that had us all, even some of the care staff who were closer at the time were laughing our arses off. I still remember the way he dropped like he'd been shot in the head with a rifle or pistol hollowpoint round, but he did survive the experience.

Not that I am for a moment suggesting people don't take golf pot shots at trump if they get the chance.

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.

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.

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.

I did not feel a need to both. I did both anyhow. But does Dick has a history of lying about such things? Yes or no? Is there anything to suggest he is not lying now? Why are you running with it then?

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

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.

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.

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.

Who said he was not tipped off about this before it happened? Who is to say that he did not get right onto confirming the information straight away and then had someone say, "Nah, its a bullshit alert and made at state level, enjoy your game, Mr President"?

You don't know. If that was the case then it would mean there was no threat. It was made at a state level not a federal level and the people who stuffed up will address it as they should. I see no foul at all

The reason I bring up the Clintons and Obama is I never saw this kind of unfettered disgust at them when they did worse than he. So yes it is about Trump BUT I think it is far more than that and I personally would like to know what more it is.

I'm wondering why you felt this need. Was it because you know how much Trump lies so you felt you had to somehow divert attention to Hillary. You're a lot like him.
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.

Who says? His silence on the subject. He should have addressed the incident. It's what real leaders do, especially in a situation like this. The idiot in chief doesn't know how to be one, though, so he ignored it and most of us really aren't that surprised.

The reason why Obama and the Clintons never saw this kind of disgust (yes, that is the proper word) directed at them is that they did, and do, know what it takes to be a leader and act accordingly. I realise this might seem like rocket science to you, but it doesn't to them, and it shouldn't to Trump. It's part of the job description and if you don't understand why then you shouldn't be there.

I'm just wondering what was covered over this time.


So far, these outbursts of media bait have inevitably buried some other piece of news.

A golf ball in the head would also work.

So would a golf club to the head.  :asthing:

Basic leadership skills 101...

1. Addressing major problems/disasters/tragedies that effect people's lives when they occur or soon after they occur.

2. Reassuring people that those problems are at the very least "being looked into" so that the possibility of them occurring again will be less likely.

This isn't the first time wondering if maybe you're one of my sockpuppets. Was just about to say, everything since trump took office has been over sensationalized hype about what crap spills from Trumps lips or tweety fingers. It all strikes as a diversion tactic because the news isn't reporting on the context of the political/governmental happenings surrounding the hoopla. The news isn't reporting on the content or the outcome of the meeting, only OMG Trump said shithole.

Agreed, a state of the union address should have been broadcast, and immediately. That was definitely the sort of thing needing confirmation from the whitehouse and broadcast across every network.

That's because Trump doesn't respond to fake news.  :M

What does this have to do with his alleged statement??

Many other countries ARE shitholes.

Much of Central America = shithole
Much of South America = shithole
Much of Africa = shithole
Much of the Middle East = shithole
Select parts of Eastern Asia = shithole

I don't see a problem with calling a spade a spade.   :dunno:

Trump has effectively changed the news cycle.

Instead of needing to present analysis on domestic politics and geopolitics, the news industry can just sit back and wait for Trump to say, do or tweet something stupid or offensive or outrageous. Then they are all over it like a rash. And they don’t usually need to wait very long. And it seems like they don’t even bother to fact check any more: if something sounds offensive and outrageous and someone said Trump said it, then they’ll run with it as if it’s fact.

When Obama was in office, when HRC was Secretary of State, or course they did some shit that should have been more heavily scrutinised. But Obama would make the right noises, say inspiring things, handle international issues with poise and an air of “don’t worry people, I’ve got this”, basically he acted like a president should act. The opposite of Trump, in other words.
