    The President Donald Trump Thread

    OK America, are you great yet? You are becoming a S-hole country according to Amnesty International. https://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2019/08/amnesty-international-issues-u-s-travel-warning-avoid-churches-malls-schools/?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Imagine+No+Religion&utm_content=44

    Strange, I found what Biden said easily enough. The difference is that Trump is President and should be held to a higher standard. It is called responsibility. A word that I doubt Trump can pronounce.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    My apologies to all on this thread. I did not mean to derail the thread or cause problems with my "Google it" comment. I initially felt MoondoggieRN was being obstructive and disingenuous in their reply to Nel as I thought that this story might actually be national news in America. I was wrong and jumped to conclusions for that I apologise. My thinking was clouded by a similar poster to MoondoggieRN on a previous thread where I had posted a link to a 10 second clip of a video and was taunted for showing an "edited" version instead of the full version.

    No Nel, I don't think he hates the US. My opinion for what it is worth, is that he thinks he is smarter and cleverer and better than these people (and everyone else for that matter) and that no matter what they say or think his opinion or "gut feeling" is the one to listen to. Despite all evidence to the contrary.

    Sorry, not sure what I was trying to say when I wrote that. Very late at night and I was tired. I was sober so no alcohol to blame just tiredness.

    The Caravan

    Sorry Dude but, do you actually know your history? The immigrants in the 19th century were fleeing poverty and violence. Not one of them went to a US embassy and asked for a visa. EVERY ONE OF THEM turned up on a boat and asked to be admitted. So don't give me "they were legal." Assimilation? Is that why you have the stereotype of the Irish policeman, or the Polish labourer or the German Amish or the Italians or.... How many countries do you want me to list that you can find a ghetto or a number of people clinging together. How many cities in America have a little China? "Many other differences between those immigrants and today's." One difference that springs immediately to mind is that mostly the immigrants were white.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48921243 Three things spring to mind; 1) Is there anything happening concerning Trump that he would want to deflect from? Perhaps his friend Jeffrey Epstein can answer that? 2) Does he seriously think that it is only the British ambassador who writes things like that? All the ambassadors will have written similar stuff. 3) Trump wants Brexit done so that he can move in and try to cheat UK in business because that is what he does. And to this end he wants Nigel Farage as the UK ambassador.

    Oh well that's OK then. If they're only looking for a better life then it is all right to torture, maltreat and dehumanise them.

    What is it?

    Is it a combination of these two?
  11. Well not unilaterally withdrawing from the Iran deal that Iran were keeping to and also not imposing tough sanctions would be a start. But then so would Trump understanding geopolitics, something my dog understands better than him.

    Not sure why you are resurrecting this thread after Konichiwa abandoned it but; hello, nice to meet you. Second; I am well aware of where the quote comes from and it was used very deliberately as a response to the sentence made by Konichiwa which was quoted. Did you perhaps miss the little winking emoji after the statement?

    Smaller ones here; https://www.amazon.com/s?k=trump+balloon&crid=223WW3YTVC6RV&sprefix=trump+bal%2Caps%2C233&ref=nb_sb_ss_i_1_9 Yes but she was arrested for criminal damage. Really does you proud - right wing nutcase attacking a peaceful protest with a knife. Lucky she wasn't shot under terrorist laws. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/trump-baby-blimp-stabbed-london-protest-parliament-square-a8943976.html Sorry but he embarrassed you with his complete lack of understanding of UK and Irish history. He advised building a wall along the Irish border with the UK. It took over 30 years and 50,000 casualties to stop the violence caused by a border. Seriously, is there nobody around who can say to him "Just shut up you are too stupid to understand this!!!" The Madam Tussaud's waxwork is being moved about by a comedy program called "The Last Leg" and does not show until 10:00pm UK time tonight. I will be interested to see what they have done. https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/01/twitter-campaign-launched-to-show-donald-trump-the-best-of-the-uk-9770752/

    Seriously flawed thinking.

    You are the one who wrote it with no explanation or nuance. If you don't mean things "literally" then say so. On page 45 of this thread you wrote; "The ENTIRE WORLD is "still (yes. still)" trying to move into our nation." and "ENTIRE WORLD is trying to move into our nation." in two separate posts. I pointed out the logical absurdity of your thinking - you know, your SERIOUSLY FLAWED THINKING.
