Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

Nov 8 : Time to edit the wiki. Biggest upset in American History according to Michael Isikoff.

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

My oh my.
Just because I'm not an obedient little Trumpkin doesn't mean I like Hillary. I despise her. I point out Donald's flaws to show why I'm going to have a hard time holding my nose and voting for him.
I'd vote for just about anyone else. Just happens to be that I also despise Bernie and Donald.
I don't want to despise Donald, but he's done nothing to earn my vote and I don't believe that Hillary or Donald are fit to be POTUS.

So unless he does something to change my mind #ImWithMickey
It's a small form of protest, but that's all I have.

+1

Very well put.  As I live in Israel and am registered in NY, I probably won't vote at all.

Ok makes sense
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

and what is your opinion of that?

Mixed. Supports Trump, but is clearly very different ideologically. I still like Cheney.

One oft repeated claim is "Trump will surround himself with and hire good people" even if he is not the best person for the job.

Why hasn't he done that for his campaign? We're up to the third campaign manager, none of the three inspire any confidence.

Or is running a country easier than running a political campaign?

Agree with this 100%, and even more so - the people he has hired have proven incapable of controlling him or protecting him (and his campaign) from himself. We've clearly seen that even if he does manage to get good advisers he won't listen to what they say anyway.

What irks me is that Guiliani is running around with Trump, when Guiliani could have run himself.

You think he would have defeated Trump in the primary? He would have been with Pataki at the kids table.
If you don't care why would you comment?

No, my theory was in the event that Trump didn't run. Trump hijacked the GOP. Even if Reagan came back from the dead he wouldn't be able to override Trump.

Why do you think the result would be different than his last run (if you can even call it that)?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

How much kool-aid did you drink for posting 3 and 4 on the left?

It only needs about a quarter of the amount you had for someof what you've written.

You answered your own question, he never really ran a proper campaign. Besides, in 2008 it was impossible for a Republicam to win the election anyhow.

I feel like 2016 is for the Democrats whaf 2008 was for the Republicans. I don't think Hillary would stand a chance against any other GOP candidate, and I think Guiliani would mop the floor with her.
