    The President Donald Trump Thread

    You underestimate the ability of Trump's supporters to just ignore reason and truth in order to make whatever he says fit into their "acceptability" frame.

    This man is the biggest disgrace to ever hold the office. What a freaking embarrassment.

    Is it really incompetence though?

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    It's really tragic that this tweet would actually be referring to a US president. Every day there is a new low in terms of behavior or speech and it's surreal that much of the world looks at our president as a total nutcase/laughingstock when he's not being perceived as an uneducated yet evil and dangerous sociopath. Eugene Gu, MD @eugenegu·lt. 7h We learn in med school that if someone comes to the emergency room calling themselves the King of Israel and the second coming of God, that patient is either high on drugs or is having a psychotic break and needs to be promptly evaluated with a tox screen and psychiatric consult.

    He has a pathological level of insecurity.

    Domestic Terrorism

    I don't like door to door fundraisers, but if someone knocks on my door and I don't recognize them, or are not expecting them, I typically just don't answer the door. The only reason to pull out a firearm (I don't actually possess one) would be if they began to attempt to enter my home, began to walk around the home trying doors or windows, entered my back yard, something threatening of that nature. Even then, I would not confront them-that's 911 time. This lady sounds like a real winner.

    OT Lil Nel: I challenge you to give up your addiction for 24 hours. No commas allowed!!! I found the comments from Walsh to be pretty interesting.

    If 44 out of 45 US Presidents were 40 something gay males, I probably would be calling for someone who wasn't ANOTHER 40 something year old gay male. If 44 out 45 US Presidents were black females, and yet another black female was being put up for president, I'd be speaking for change. Let's not be disingenuous-acknowledging the fact that wealthy white males have been running this country (not just as president, but in leadership in almost any area you can think of) at a rate far exaggerated in comparison to their numbers as a problem is not being racist. It's speaking up for fairness and it's time that the status quo be challenged. I'm a white woman in the 1% according to assets. It's to my benefit to see the status quo continue. Seeing a person who deviates drastically from the kind of leadership we have typically elected come onto the scene and take the mantle of leadership is likely going to hurt my bottom line. I have a taxable estate, so it's going to hurt my kids' bottom line. But I can recognize unfairness and inequity in our society and not want to see that continue, for the good of humanity that takes priority over individual advancement.

    Absolutely not. Saying that we need more diversity in our leadership is not racist, when our country is a literal melting pot not fairly represented. We need more fair representation in every way, in government and business and just about every other area, and continuing to elect people who embody the status quo in a way that is NOT representative of our population is actually the opposite, even if those in power look just like me and might actually benefit me rather than those who might come into power. I find these kinds of comments in response to a call for diversity to be rather disingenuous. "You want diversity, and in order to achieve diversity, you by necessity must reject someone who represents the status quo in hugely unequal numbers relative to their percentage in our popularion, so you are being racist?' Umm, no, it's asking to change what in reality is a huge disgrace...

    I've also seen assertions that if you copy and paste just the title of the article into google search, the article will pop up without a paywall. Might be worth a try. When you clear your cookies, you do often have to re-log in to sites that recognize you.

    Can't remember which paper you were trying to read, but many operate like this one:

    Nope. Asking to have better representation of our populace in the highest office isn't racist, but insisting on only having elderly white men in that position might be. Does the thought of having a person of color, a woman, or someone who actually doesn't qualify for Medicare when those demographics have had an effective monopoly of the office offend your sensibilities? Also, as a white person with white children, it's not likely that I am racist towards white people.

    My personal feelings about Biden is that the last thing we need is another elderly rich white man running things. No, he's not as offensive as a human being, but I'm not very optimistic about his ability to bring about significant, much needed relief.
