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.

Do you think that is the case? How much bullying is there of Clinton voters Vs Trump voters?
I don't mean because of bullying. I believe there are Bernie loyalists who will never admit that their voting for Clinton. And there are lifelong GOPers, who are afraid of Trump, who won't admit they're voting for Clinton, (I speak from experience  ;), or maybe not, I won't know till I'm in the voting booth).

Not going to shoot you but there is racism everywhere.
Not on a scale to impact an election

I am no fan of kasich butThis idea that people who make a protest vote are senile or insane is ridiclous. There is nothing crazy about feeling that both candidates are not people you are comfortable pulling the lever for. I know someone who's whole life is invested in the conservative movement (not a politician a genuine academic and activist) and he has told me he will never vote for trump or Clinton they both going against everything he believes in and he cant support either. I am not sure if I would do the same but it's certainly something I can understand and respect

Basically, Trump's chances of winning the election are even (10%) better than the polls are showing. #scary

You followed the conversation? Kasich is senile and crazy not because he made a protest vote but because his vote wasn't even a protest vote,

Next time my wife is taking to me and I'm not listening and she says, "ok so which one do you like?" I'm going to say, "waffles!" and she'll say, "We were discussing what color to paint the living room" and I'll say, "I know that! And waffles is my protest vote!"

The bullying is a siman not a siba. I am not referring to their being afraid of getting beaten up but because they find it socially unacceptable to be voting for Trump. The loyalists of the primary loser you always have and is probably a wash.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

I understood that from your first comment.

I disagree, Bernie was a movement, you don't usually have that in primaries. (And Obama and Trump who were also movements won the primaries)

Or he thinks McCain is a great American and didn't deserve Trump's ridiculous criticism of not being captured.

The Bernie movement people are crazy enough to actually not vote for her.

Huh??

That.

And the conversation i was responding to anyway was more about the idea of "throwing away your vote"

Way too lazy to find all the times Trump said he's not sure he'll endorse the other guys anymore during the Primary. Glad to know you buy into his double standard of politics but you can't stand it when someone else changes their mind.

McCain is a pretty good political move, he's someone that is a hero which Trump disrespected, he's betting hard that trump will either lose the election or fail as a president and when he does he will have built a decent campaign for a 2020 bid.
Come again?

First. All things even, at least Trump was not just going to not support. He would run as independent because he thinks - at least he thinks - he can win as independent.

Add to that that he finally said he will support the candidate who wins. At the time same time Kasich gave that pledge as well.

But writing in McCain?

You are so blinded by Trump's rhetoric there's no explaining it to you.

All you have to do is imagine it was Trump doing something and you can find every excuse in the world for why it's not just an ok thing to do it's genius.

For me, the weirdest thing in this whole weird election was to learn how stubbornly the OH guys stick up for their weirdo governor.
