Tortorella's Rant Posted July 22, 2015 Share Posted July 22, 2015 His remarks were is response to McCains comments of calling his supporters 'crazies. While Trump is a blow-hard, it was dumb of McCain (especially as he's a paid government employee) to say that about American citizens. Trump had to defend himself and his supporters, so in that context it makes complete sense. A war-hero is not a legally defined term, so really they are just stupidly fighting over a point of view. Trump went somewhat went back on his remarks, albeit super briefly on the O'Reilly show, which he is allowed to do, its a free country and no one is infallible. By definition, everyone who crosses the border illegally is a criminal under the eyes of the law (punishable by up to 6 months in prison), so Trump is technically correct for calling them criminals. I am all for finding a way to help those in need find a better life away from a life of suffering, but technically speaking, Trump is not wrong. I think people support him because he has a hardnosed 'take no prisoners' mentality, but that will end up biting him in the end, and there is no way Trump takes the presidency. Hillary for prez. Which is why I said out of context or not, as if his remark was somehow justified one way or another, discrediting McCain like that was uncalled for - especially for the reasons stated. Yes, technically all illegals are criminals, obviously. It was his assertion that most crossing the border are rapists, drug dealers, and gang bangers. I don't call it taking out of context as that implies what he has said has been misrepresented The media hasn't done that. He has merely said a lot of stupid sh*t that he can't defend and that's evident. It's only requires common sense to know he's wrong. Maybe call it uncommon sense since it's not all that common anymore. But common sense is not evidence. However we have evidence he's wrong there as with just about every wild claim as mentioned. He's loud, he's vocal, he's a character that gets everyone's attention. He's great at what he does. But people like him are dangerous in their own way. Especially when so much of that country is ignorant as hell. Brewing hate and pounding the fear drums all for political and personal gain. He doesn't even have to believe what he's saying - the increasing number of voters swaying towards him do believe him though. The sooner he's dropped from this race the better. Sanders for prezzzz. He said he's running a campaign on truth and I haven't heard a lot of him yet but what I have I can't exactly disagree with.. Anyway!
