  1. Spot on. Brilliant. It's all fake news, with one exception of course, Fox News: Trump supporters, sticking your head in the ground is not going to do a thing to prevent the deluge of reality.
  2. James Comey Agrees To Testify In Open Senate Hearing The Senate Intelligence Committee said ousted FBI Director James Comey has agreed to testify in an open session. The committee said in a late Friday statement that it plans to schedule the hearing for after Memorial Day. The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election and any possible links between Moscow and the Trump campaign. Sen. Richard Burr, chairman of the committee, said he hopes that Comey's testimony "will clarify for the American people recent events that have been broadly reported in the media." Sen. Mark Warner, vice chairman of the committee, said he expects the former FBI director to "shed light on issues critical" to the committee's investigation. The Virginia Democrat also said he hopes that Comey will answer some of the questions following his sudden dismissal. "Director Comey served his country with honor for many years, and he deserves an opportunity to tell his story. Moreover, the American people deserve an opportunity to hear it," Warner said in a statement. Since Comey was abruptly fired by Donald Trump, reports have surfaced suggesting a tense relationship between the former FBI director and the president. Earlier Friday, The New York Times reported that Trump told top Russian officials that Comey was a "nut job" and that his termination relieved "great pressure." The newspaper also reported that the president had expressed his wishes that Comey could let go of the investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn. In a Thursday conference, Trump flatly denied that he ever made such a suggestion. "No. No ... next question," Trump said when asked during a joint news conference with Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos if he had, in any way, tried to influence the probe. In a reported memo, Comey allegedly says Trump asked him to let the probe into Flynn go.
  3. Even at this point I'm not sure Trump himself is particularly racist. He just made sure to hold views that would most certainly garner support from racists. One thing Trump does extremely well is manipulate people based on their prejudices, and he has done far more damage in that regard then any open racist could possibly aspire to cause. Look how he has divided the country. He is quite possibly the worst thing that ever happened to the USA.
  4. Is the criticism warranted when they are people the President has already publicly denounced as criminals, and rightly so? This seems to be a fairly important detail you are dismissing here.
  5. Who wasn't paying attention?! Trump himself publicly denounced Goldman Sachs, and a couple months later appointed Steve Mnuchin as Treasury secretary. These guys could draw an amusing new picture like this every single day as to what is apparently troubling America, and they could be total non sequiturs depending on what kind of seizure Trump is having, and nothing would be amiss with his devotees. What Trump depends on is providing enemies, either exaggerated or unreal, while he tries to take away the health insurance, or sells the on line browsing information of the people he is supposed to protect and serve. His tremendous ego takes priority before the needs of the American people. Believe me.
  6. Here are the top ten countries that suffer terrorism: https://www.forbes.com/sites/dominicdudley/2016/11/18/countries-most-affected-by-terrorism/#7ede6fb130d9 Iraq Afghanistan Nigeria Pakistan Syria Yemen India Somalia Egypt Libya While it can certainly be argued that foreign intervention has not helped in some cases, at the end of the day it's estimated that many as 95% percent of the victims of terrorism worldwide are Muslims; the only way to explain that is to assert that a vast majority of these attacks are also perpetrated by Muslims. Why does this happen? Consider how some Muslims fly into a rage when someone simply draws a picture of Mohammed. Now apply that kind of thinking at large in an environment where there is little tolerance for objection to whatever your beliefs may be, and the hair trigger violence that all too soon follows. This is what proliferates in many Muslim majority countries; intentional provocation that has been going on for well over a thousand years, since the Sunni and Shia have existed. I would recommend watching "Freedom to broadcast hate" it was an eye opener.
  7. I really hope you start questioning what guys like Trump and Spicer say as you have done here. Why? Well... because they do this kind of thing all of the time. Lying or displaying ignorance in a way that is truly baffling. You can hope they will be asked to clarify, but unless they are backed into a corner they never will do this earnestly. They have no respect for Americans, in particular the people who voted them into power.
  8. Are YOU serious?! I thought I made it fairly clear this is incredulity, not resentment.
  9. Are you serious? Yeah, I'm sure millions of people could fly a thousand miles every other day and do their job just as effectively on the golf course, rather then their office, because that makes perfect sense... what a utopia we live in?
  10. He has obsessive compulsive disorder, he's a pathological liar, mentally dysfunctional, petulant, incompetent, unpredictable, unstable, narcissistic, repugnant, oblivious, racist, condescending, megalomaniac, egomaniac, bully, demagogue, con artist, pervert, infuriated by any woman who stands up to him, has history of discrimination against black people and he very likely is a traitor to his country.
  11. It took Trump just 69 days to accomplish something that the country's most unpopular presidents took years to achieve (35% approval rating) http://www.businessinsider.com/trump-approval-rating-gallup-2017-3 It's finally dawning on people Trump is nothing but a selfish, greedy, amoral, unscrupulous, ignorant, stupid, reckless, sociopathic, arrogant, lazy twat. For the rest of my life I'll never understand how people failed to see this a few months ago.
  12. I finally understand why things are the way they are right now. For example, this is literally what Trumpists experience when they watch InfoWars:
  13. It gets even worse. Here is a quote from Sean Spicer in December: We have a respect for the press when it comes to the government. That is something that you can’t ban an entity from. That’s what makes a democracy a democracy, versus a dictatorship.
  14. He doesn't think there is anything wrong with that kind of thing, in fact he describes it as a positive experience. That's okay? Try saying that to yourself, or in front of a group of people. Obviously the vast majority of the time this is not a positive experience, and he has to know better. He should be obligated to identify the people who are doing this so they don't destroy more lives.
  15. If you are not yet familiar with Sassy Trump, watch this. Here is Sassy Trump at his sassy press conference. Trust me, it's therapeutic. My favorite moment from the (actual) press conference: Trump: "People came out and voted like they've never seen before. I guess it was the biggest electoral college win since Ronald Reagan." NBC reporter points out Trump got 306 and Obama got 365. Trump: "Well I'm talking about Republican" NBC: But George Bush got 426. Trump: "I was given that information I don't know, I was, given that. We had a very, very big margin". NBC - "Why should Americans trust you when you accuse the information they receive as being fake, when you're providing information that is fake?" Trump: "Well I don't know, I was given that information. Actually, I've seen that information around." Second favorite part: (Trump educates us about nuclear stuff) "You know what uranium is right? It’s this thing called nuclear weapons. And other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium. Including some bad things. But nobody talks about that"
