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.

It's just amazing to me how relatively muted the frum community's reaction to this had been. Just imagine if Obama had done the same, and then defended his decision to omit mention of Jews from the statement.

We all know why they are mute and what the reaction would have been if Obama did it.

Exactly. I'd like to see some of the Trump supporters here stand up and explain this.

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.  :)

All I know about him is what he has said.
You might want to reread what I said or ask for clarification.  ???

I know exactly what you said.
My point is your silly to think that people that have Jewish families (Trump), and are known to be very pro-Jews by those who know them well (Trump and Bannon) are somehow very anti-semitic. We already know for a fact that Trump is already far better for Israel then probably any other president, definitely better than the previous one that demonized Israel every chance he got. And many of us that know people that are either close with Trump or his administration all say that he likes Jews.

So you can read into his words and try to find a way to call him or Bannon an anti-semite but Jews will find it laughable.
It's almost the equivalent of calling all of us anti-semites, it doesn't really deserve a serious response.

Since you keep putting your foot into your mouth I will explain before you look more foolish. I did not call Bannon an anti-Semite. I said I don't know. Here is what I did say: "I will say based on what you believe is an anti-Semite he is one of the worse ones."
That was directed at SS. "You" in that sentence is SS. SS has called me many times an anti-Semite. I am using that as a base land for what he (SS) believes is an anti-Semite.  Based on that baseline Bannon IMHO is way worse than me.

Just to bring back an old argument of mine pay attention to the last paragraph of this:
https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/01/30/us/politics/supreme-court-affirmative-action-abortion-unions.html
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Appointing a conservative justice and one that will vote to overturn RvW is miles apart.

I have no opinion on whether Bannon is an anti-Semite or not, but saying someone can't be an anti-Semite because they have Jewish friends is as stupid as saying someone isn't racist because they have black friends.

Throughout history anti-Semites always justified their hated of Jews by explaining that "most Jews aren't like my Moshe"

The best thing that came from any POTUS in recent history: http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/316839-trump-to-sign-order-reducing-regulations

Now let's see a constitutional amendment requiring every senator and congressman to be tested on the content of every bill up for a vote, and get an 80 or better passing mark, before being allowed to vote.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Is all this mostly hot air?
http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/most-of-trump%e2%80%99s-executive-orders-aren%e2%80%99t-actually-executive-orders-here%e2%80%99s-why-that-matters/ar-AAmoYIA?li=BBnb7Kz

Considering that we are talking about the biggest source of global warming for a few decades already in Trumps mouth I would say that even if there is substance it is hot air.
