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!

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.

Are you talking about the FBI investigation or the Russian hack of the DNC server?

You could be right but either way one thing we will never know for sure is that Lewis would not have complained that Hillary is an illegitimate president.

FTFY

Just like Trump the Trumpsters just don't understand. The best way to explain it is the stupid comments I have made about Judaism because of my past ignorance. I think many here would agree those comments are far and few between if it at all now.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump%e2%80%99s-feud-with-john-lewis-prompts-outrage-among-blacks/ar-AAlTQHf?li=BBnb7Kz

The angry reaction is driven not only by Mr. Trumpís Twitter posts but what many blacks say they reveal about the president-electís lack of understanding of the reverence with which the civil rights movement, and its leaders, are viewed by African-Americans.

LAME! So John Glenn (when he was alive) should have gotten a free pass on policy because he is a national hero and icon?

Like I said, Trump is slaying the sacred cows.

You seen what happened when he went after John McCain.

Where is this free pass coming from. Every rightwing news source is hammering him.

The whole birther conspiracy was in effect the same thing - saying BO was not a legitimate president. Many still believe Gore was elected and Bush was not a legitimate president. There were people who found reasons for Clinton too.

FTR, I don't think these Dems are correct, and I agree they are being childish crybabies. It's just interesting how there is this sudden hang up with the term "legitimate president." This has happened before, just called different names.

I seem to remember that anyone who even mentioned that it was a question where Obama was born was harshly attacked and called a racist. Am I forgetting?

I'm not denying there is a bias, and the boycotts and lack of acceptance are certainly more common and more extreme. But so too are Trump's flaws.

I'm not arguing with anyone here (on this). I'm just saying it's far from unprecedented.

I agree that it was not unprecedented to say that a president from the other party is illegitimate. In fact I have said that it was to be expected and that both parties have always done so. My point is that neither is it unprecedented when the president's party counterattacks and the criticism of Trump for doing so is equally partisan.

While people in the US and on DDF are arguing about the presidency of DJT, some people can't wait to have their own version of DJT https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2017-01-17/brazilians-want-their-own-donald-trump

Reminds me of when Israelis wished Rudy Giuliani was their prime minister.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

So he ain't that sacred....
Never thought he was. Just because he's done a lot of great things in his career, that doesn't allow him to use his platform scott free to deligatimize the 45th President. I hope this backlash gets to him and helps him change his mind. If he wants to continue his help for minority groups he would be able to do a lot more if he was on the president's side.

For him to boycott this inauguration is perceived as legitimate move by the Dems and the Media. But for him not to show up to GW Bush proves otherwise.

The only backlash is from the Trumpsters. Politically speaking this is a good thing for him.

Not when you throw the Bush inauguration in to the mix.
