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 know exactly what you said.
My point is your silly to think that people that have Jewish families (Trump), and are known to be very pro-Jews by those who know them well (Trump and Bannon) are somehow very anti-semitic. We already know for a fact that Trump is already far better for Israel then probably any other president, definitely better than the previous one that demonized Israel every chance he got. And many of us that know people that are either close with Trump or his administration all say that he likes Jews.

So you can read into his words and try to find a way to call him or Bannon an anti-semite but Jews will find it laughable.
It's almost the equivalent of calling all of us anti-semites, it doesn't really deserve a serious response.
It's not reading into his words. Their purposeful omission of Jews from Holocaust is dispicable and disgusting. That doesn't mean they won't otherwise be good for the Jews.

Was it in fact to minimize that Jews were murdered or was it to include the others that were killed? I mean, the White House does say that obviously the Jews went through the Holocaust. It is also interesting that the statement was written by a Russian-Jewish immigrant that descended from Holocaust survivors. Self-hating Jew? http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/316994-jewish-aide-wrote-trump-holocaust-statement-report

Seriously? You went there to defend Mr. Trump?
Can you do some research first? It is a known Holocaust denying tactic to say Jews weren't targeted. Yes, many others were killed, but the final solution was created to solve the Jewish problem. That's a fact. And to write a statement about the Holocaust and intentionally leave out the Jews is ignorant at best. And that would be true if the statement were written by my mother

You make it sound like a huge deal. Maybe you're right, and I will google it, but I was under the impression that Holocaust deniers believe that Jews weren't murdered or very few were murdered, and don't believe that 6 million Jews were murdered. The Trump administration does believe 6 million were murdered, so where do I go wrong?

P.s. Sean Spicer manages to say the stupidest things like "The president went out of his way to recognize the Holocaust" - what the heck? This guy probably won't last long.

He says exactly what the president tells him to say. You are right he won't last long as his conscience will get to him. You can only lie so long for Trump.

Do you really think that He meant to imply Holocaust denial views?? Has he ever said anything that would suggest he held such views? He actually has come out very strongly in defence of Israel.....
 I would think it was simply a poorly worded statement... nothing sinister....

Sally Yates is out, Dana Boente is in.

Curious, anyone know why he couldn't or wouldn't appoint Sessions as acting AG?
If you don't care why would you comment?

No and yes. As yuneeq said, many others were killed during the Holocaust. A lot of people believe that Jews played the victim card and there was nothing special about Jews. It's just a question of to what degree do you believe that

Possibly, although the president controls the narrative I think it's up to Spicer to articulate it properly and he has already failed repeatedly. Did he also tell him to throw a fit in his first press conference? It was possible to mention the falsely misrepresented pictures of Trumps inauguration (the ones taken way before or after his speech) without getting angry or start ranting.

Maybe he was upset that he was sent out there to do that? Monday when he had a plausible explanation for the crowd size he was a different person. KAC was so rattled the following day she came up with the horrendous line "alternative facts" that will haunt them forever.

I won't speculate but if he can't do his job while staying calm then he's not fit for the job.
His job is to answer questions and he can't just read off a script. When he's not calm he says things that are either wrong or sound wrong.

The whole idea of being sure every statement is exactly even when the subject matter is not is offensive in itself and a big portion of why many voted for him. It is exactly what, I am pretty sure, you yourself have complained about regarding Obama. Now you are defending Trump about it? In general I support Trump, but that does not mean I need to defend every single thing he says or does like some here are doing. Neither does not supporting him need to mean that every single thing he says or does is wrong like others here are doing.
No and yes. As yuneeq said, many others were killed during the Holocaust. A lot of people believe that Jews played the victim card and there was nothing special about Jews. It's just a question of to what degree do you believe that
This is exactly the issue here. Had they said that they were not specific to any group while mentioning at the later point that of course Jews were the main victims it would have ended. By saying that they left out mention on purpose is an issue.

Remember I am Mr goalpost and they don't move. Another case in point. I said Trump should keep his mouth shut on commenting on Obamas policies before he took office. Now Obama should keep his mouth shut as we only have one president at a time and that is Trump. Fair, balanced and impartial.  :P

That shows little. I have praised, criticized, and defended him as well. Do you consider me to be impartial?

BTW, I have no issue with Obama commenting on Trumps policies nor when Trump commented on Obama policies.
