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.

Trump says terrorism acts ignored. Evidence?

I can think of a recent one, the Bowling Green Massacre.  :)
Well NYT blamed Orlando on Republicans.

Did you look at the list of 78 which they released?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/02/07/the-trump-teams-list-of-78-underreported-terrorist-attacks-is-a-bit-of-a-mess/?utm_term=.1e1ba8d6a9fb#annotations:11297158

They are correct that the list is a mess but that is mostly typos.

How about you look at the list and let me know which US terrorist attack wasn't reported on.

wasn't reported on /= under reported. Also, some were not reported as the Islamic incident which they were.

Why are you obligating them to limit to US attacks?

Well NYT blamed Orlando on Republicans.

That's what I care about and should be the main focus of the US media. Do you think Europe reports every murder in Chicago or cares?

Note how the first part of what I wrote was ignored.

Why ae they obligated to limit themselves to the ones you care about? They are arguing, not without merit, that attacks in other countries are relevant to the debate. I will agree with you that they are not nearly as relevant as something in the US, but they are not bound by my opinion or yours.

Appreciate the list and even without checking each one I will concede on underreporting. The problem is he said ignored and none of those qualify. I think you will concede these were reported on and that is what I asked.

Ignore: refuse to take notice of or acknowledge; disregard intentionally

I disagree with you. This is all related to the ban he put in place which only affects entry into the US. This is getting off subject so I will stop.

That was a copy/paste from the WH list.

Were all of those reported nationally?

Too much substance? Getting off topic of his tweets?

The fact that there are terrorist elements intentionally mixing with the refugees in other countries shows that this is an issue which needs to be avoided in our country as well. It, of course, does not show that our procedures are inadequate. Is the difference between us and them the vetting procedures in place? Possibly. That is not the argument being advanced.

That was the first one on the list. I never heard of it. Most likely it didn't get massive national coverage or and national coverage. Do you think it should have? Either way I will bet it was reported on and not ignored as Trump has claimed.

ETA: After a quick Google search this was reported by every major news outlet.

On vacation so pardon me for my ignorance, but does reporting mean:

"Man stabs 3 in pizza shop altercation"
Or does it need to be:
"ISIS inspired terrorist stabs 3 in local pizza shop"

My guess is that MSM believes in the former while the WH believes the latter.

Remember his tweets are his views of reality.

As you know our vetting process is different than Europe's. The argument is our process is working and that is why Europe is having these problems all the time.
