Who would want all of this negative attention though?  I guess twits like you said :P 

I think it is the same reason some people troll... good or bad they get responses. 

 

It's weird. I think the true Trump supporters are the racists alt right types and the people that would never vote Dem no matter what. The rest of his support come from these trolls that have found a way to get attention. 

Ever noticed that every second poster that supports Trump on here has to put in an 'LOL' in most posts and responses? I see that as an attempt to agitate, troll, instead of honest debate.

I think a lot of Trump supports are the blue collared type, their whole family voted red no matter what so they’ll be damned to not vote red.

 

I noticed the ‘lol’, I’m not sure if it’s used as a trolling tactic or not.  I think it’s more offended used to break the tension tbh.

True.  I guess I should appreciate what we do have here by seeing "what could be".  Scary.

we all should. We are really blessed to have a multi-party parliamentary democracy. When i hear people complain about the senate or how much power a PM has, it makes me shake my head. Look at the total $&!# show going on right now in the US. And then realize this thing won't end for decades. The "army" of alt-right supporters isn't going anywhere on Nov 4th. 

 

A big part of this problem is their 2 party system. It forces people to choose to prop up racists. Some people get really upset when you call them a racist for supporting Trump, but if you do support Trump and can actually vote in the US (I don't care what Canadian Trumpers want) you are enabling a racist POTUS. Thats racist. 

 

I have some sympathy for some conservatives I have many in my family, but at some point you have to choose higher principles even it if means not voting conservative once in your life.

Lol @ people who take “fact checking” seriously

 

 

as I said before the debate began, fact checking is bias itself. Clearly a lie.

Awwwww... you're back, are you?  Just so you know, the  'confused' emoticon is used by several of us to convey a WTF without having to provide you with an undeserved rep point. Your 'retaliation' is pathetic, to say the least!  :lol:

Maybe not a trolling tactic but I do not think it is used to break the tension.

 

It seems more like an attempt to ridicule the intelligence of what they are responding to. Reminds me of an ex- friend I had that had to put a fake laugh after every thing he said that he thought was tough or cutting. It seems like insecurity to me. Either way, it is not often used because something is actually funny.

That could be it too.  Hard to tell people intentions through reading text on the internet, need body language to get a full picture.

So if I am racist and you vote for me, that makes you what?

 

I wouldn't vote for you. Good thing Trump isn't a racist.

Most of his supporters appear to be the hard working little guy/ woman of all colours many are ex dems.

It is amazing how many people of colour support this supposed racist. 

 

 

Absolutely clueless are the people following the major news stations with blatant agendas. Twist everything to make it fit, he has been blamed for everything bad the dems/left have done. it is hilarious and appalling that so many think he is the enemy.

 

He is legitimately fighting for the hard working people of his country. 

 

His only real downfall is is ego and his unfiltered mouth.  

 

Why do the other guys get a free pass? Why can they literally kill their own people, blame trump and people eat it up. 

 

 

Why is it that so many people of colour support this man? 

 

He is not perfect nor a saint, but he is not even close to what you get reported to you by the media.

Stay blind.

Biden got exposed. Especially on the Antifa as a thought issue. People see through the facade. The Biden of ten years ago would have been a formidable opponent. Especially personality wise. Biden of today is weak, old school, Trump just had to stand there and shake his head.

His bigotry is apparent from his own, unfiltered tweets.  Not sure how the media is blame for Chump using Twitter as a platform to his hate speech, to the degree it violated their TOS.  He's even worse than is reported by the media and he needs to be removed from office by any means necessary.  If you look at what Trump has said and done over his miserable excuse for a life and think he is fit to hold any elected office whatsoever, you are part of the problem.  Stand down.

Point by point

 

He's spent literally a quarter of his entire presidency golfing and another 200+ days on vacation or not sitting in the oval office.  He sends underlings to do his job if he's not needed to be present, cancelled most public meetings and regular meet and greet events at the White House and put a literal wall around it.  He's accomplished less than 20% of his platform counterpoint the BC NDP who have accomplished over 85%.  For you to claim he's working hard is such a farce it hurts

 

That's his only downfall?  30+ rape or assault allegations against him.  Failed businessman.  Openly admitted pedophile at worst or lolita voyeur at best; of his time with the pageant ownership.  Pathological liar.  Yet you think his ego is his only downfall?   Speaks volumes

 

The other guys get a free pass?  Their own people?  Their own people are Americans.  Blame Trump?  Of course.  He literally threatened to stop any and all aid to blue states.  Then when asked about the death toll he flat out said "if we take away the blue states it's not that bad"  They're Americans.  Period.

 

As for them being guilty of Covid.  They are being taken to task for that and rightfully so.  NOBODY is getting a pass for that as investigations and arrests have been and are still being made regarding care home care during the Us Covid crisis

 

Now I know you're either trolling ignorant or are generally not someone I'd like to ever have to engage with.  

 

Goodbye.

True. Feel bad that he has to tow that line. He can't make that work.
