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.

You won't believe me, but I totally expected this twist. I even wanted to say it but I was afraid it would seem like I am making fun of him. It was a trademark aspy meltdown.

The answer we instinctively give is that we don't condone such actions and that one crazy person doesn't represent 50% of America. Which is still true but it gets annoying to repeat that constantly.
Live forever or die trying.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

You may get more accurate info from them than the media over who is and isn't a bigot.

Very, very true. I shamefully admit that I have used it for that purpose. Apparently Milo is not only not an Anti-Semite but they accuse him of being Jewish. But they love Pat Buchanan. They say he is a real White Nationalist. Frightening to think that he got as far as he did in the Presidential primaries a couple of times.

If that is true then Trump is a real utilitarian. If Trump wanted to hold a grudge against anyone it would be Romney who was from the very first real A-list Republican to come out and call him fundamentally unfit. If Trump can let that slide in the interest of bringing the establishment over to his side, then I am impressed. I for one thought that even if Trump got elected and even if the R's got Congress, they would obstruct their own man.

This is shaping up to be like an MMA fight where the guys kick each other in the face for twenty minutes and then hug each other and laugh. Maybe that's because to Trump the whole world is just a TV show.

Good optics at the very least. Would be deeply impressive if he was in the admin.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

When did "optics" become a term? I learned it on this thread.

Disclaimer: I'm not a big consumer of news. I probably read actual news articles three or four times a year. And I don't watch TV news at all. Is that where this word is from? Everybody is using it like it's always been a thing.
