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.

I wonder if Trump is going to apologize to CNN since it turns out what they reported was 100% accurate. All the major news outlets now reporting that Trump was briefed by Comey about the Russians trying to compromise him.

He is confused with his savior.

After Florida senator Marco Rubio said that Bush had "kept us safe," Donald Trump shot back: "How did he keep us safe when the World Trade Center came down?"
"I lost hundreds of friends, the World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush," Trump said, while the crowd's boos nearly drowned him out. "That is not safe, Marco, that is not safe,"

If you show us your source that he said that maybe we would see that there is no comparison.

If that president elect doesn't understand the significance of attacking a civil rights icon right before MLK day then he should keep his mouth shut.

Are you saying ilthe timing was politically unwise, or that it makes it objectively worse?

It shows a pattern of not thinking before he tweets. This is the president elect we are talking about not some joe blow posting here.
You can be a tough guy but how about doing it with a little bit of class.

But senior level transition sources told ABC News on Sunday the visit is off due to unspecified “scheduling issues.”  :)

Just saw this quote, which I think goes very much to the point:

"We have a president who tweets the first thing that comes to his head, has appointed a cabinet filled with billionaires even though it was rural blue-collar voters that pushed him over the top, and every pro-growth promise was met with an anti-growth measure."
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I understand that. My question is if the timing makes that point stronger, and if yes why?

Trump definitely has his share of dumb comments and references to conspiracy theories, but that doesn't mean nobody else does either

Because Trump made the comment.
Even someone who doesn't necessarily like Trump can think it's ridiculous to boycott his inauguration when he was democratically elected. Hacking/leaking negative information about the other candidate doesn't make him illegitimate. The opposing candidates leak negative information all the time, some true, some not, and elections are still considered fair. Why should it matter if it was the Russians releasing the information?
