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.

@realDonaldTrump
Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?
I was aware of that tweet and still put it in the False category.

Said he kisses and gropes them without asking.

Trump:  I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

Bush: Whatever you want.

Trump: Grab ’em by the xxxxx. You can do anything.

You can add, that he compared his sacrifice of building a great business, to a fallen soldier's parents' sacrifice.
...and
In a 1991 Esquire interview, he said: “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of [expletive].”
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Exactly. Pretty shocking that you would classify that conversation just as "objectifying". SMH
When somebody thanks you for a favor you've done, respond "my pleasure", not "no problem".

Wow. Out of 300 million americans, I don't think there are 10 who would have so little empathy and humanity, to say such a thing. (Not what you said, what the President-elect said)

Just to remind you of the context,

KAHN: Have you ever been to Arlington Cemetery? Go look at the graves of brave patriots who died defending the United States of America.

You will see all faiths, genders and ethnicities. You have sacrificed nothing and no one.

STEPHANOPOULOS: How would you answer that father? What sacrifice have you made for your country?

TRUMP: I think I have made a lot of sacrifices. I've work very, very hard. I've created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I've done -- I've had tremendous success.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Those are sacrifices?

TRUMP: Oh, sure. I think they're sacrifices.

This might be a fun and helpful exercise to help us all to discern fact from fiction, and reality with our skewed sense of it.

Here is my perception of Fact, Fiction and Unconfirmed. See which things you would move to which category.

Things Trump actually said and did:
- Promised to build a wall at the border with Mexico.
- Promised to deport illegal immigrants.
- Promised to ban Muslims from entering the country.
- Called Rosie O'Donnell a fat pig.
- Said John McCain is not a hero.
- Spoke about women with Billy Bush in an objectifying manner.

Things Trump did not say, or which were misconstrued or taken out of context (special danger of cognitive dissonance in this category):
- Called all Mexicans rapists.
- Called all Mexicans bad hombres.
- Attacked a gold star family.
- Commented on a female's menstrual cycle.
- Accepted the endorsement of white supremacists.
- Recommended to his Twitter followers that they view a sex tape.
- Encouraged Russia to hack government emails.
- Admitted to sexually assaulting women.
- Said Carly Fiorina can't be president because she's a woman.
- Said Obama is not a natural born citizen because he's black.
- Committed tax evasion.

Thinks which are unconfirmed (special danger of confirmation bias in this category):
- Touched women without permission (express or implied).
- Called Muchato Miss Piggy and Miss Housekeeping.
- Tweeted an anti-Hillary ad that was meant to connect her to controlling Jews.

Please add to wiki. Let me know if I missed any.

Wait, so when he says he's going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it that's confirmed, but when he said he gropes women (which btw falls under the rubric of sexual assault), and then that is confirmed by a few women, that belongs under the heading "unconfirmed"? CD alert!

And btw, Trump never denied that he called Muchato Miss Piggy and Miss Housekeeping

Is this what you mean by objectifying?
"to reduce somebody, or something that is complex and multifaceted, to the status of a simple object"

One of us is experiencing cognitive dissonance. Here's why I think it's you.

He said "they let you do it." The imagery I get from that is that, as a famous person, he can be more forward and take more risks than other people because he's pretty sure he won't be rejected. I don't see any indication that, if he does get rejected by a woman, he would continue touching her against her will.

Even the women who've come forward say he touched them "without permission." Most socially normal people don't ask permission first. They look for signals. He interprets signals more often than regular people because he gets them more often than regular people.

Guys, I saw a video this morning of Waldo or Freddy Kruger pushing a white guy in a keffiyah down the stairs. It's probably the funniest video I've seen in years. Why are we not talking about that?
I watched it a few times. You sure it's not college football practice ?

"They let you do it."

Read the accusations. Even if true, they depict a situation where he tried and they said no. I don't think any of them said he continued touching them after they said no.

So the risk he takes is to grab a women by you know what and if she rejects him then he won't do it again. What a great guy!!!
