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.

Or perhaps, Cuban is right and he really just doesn't want to win.
Or he's been a Hillary plant this whole time.

People like myself are looking for signs of hope to be able to vote for the guy without feeling dirty, but he consistently does whatever he can to push us away.

I really don't want to vote for Hillary ( worried about her appointment's, Supreme Court pick etc. ) But as many time as I decided to perhaps accept Trump, 2 days later I just can't.

End of the day, Trump is really getting it from all sides now. He is going to have to start acting more presidential or he won't last another month.

While Trump says something stupid every 2 days, Hillary gets tied up in another scandal every few days. Oy, the poison is gonna hurt.

Many here are registered in NY, so we get to sit this one out with a free conscience, knowing our vote is irrelevant anyways. In NJ that's also largely true, although it's usually much closer there. In Ohio, however, this historically isn't the case at all. At this point, it's looking like a sit out is a vote for Hillary, although it's very close.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Meh. He needs to earn my vote at this point and he's done nothing to do that.
Show me something to persuade me from voting Mickey. Just being not Hillary would have been enough for 99.9% of candidates, but he has squandered that through countless unforced errors.

That would be true for 99.9% of the candidates.
However, with Hillary, just not being her should be enough to vote for the only other candidate on the ballet that has any chance of winning.

I guess the only one that could probably really earn a vote is https://www.evanmcmullin.com/stand_up_with_evan

but at this point I would say it's too late in the game for that.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I can't vote for Hillary anyhow because of the ppl that she will have to appoint to appease the radicals in her party.

The things that he says makes me cringe... I keep on saying ok this is the lesser of the 2 evils, and then he blows it again.

I doubt Obamacare will pay for them, but try a pair of these for a couple of months: https://www.alpinehearingprotection.com/earplugs/sleepsoft/
