Trump's Biggest Whoppers

TRUMP: "Republicans do not believe in socialism. We believe in freedom."

TRUMP IN LITERALLY THE NEXT BREATH: "We will defend Medicare and Social Security for our great seniors. We will defend it like nobody else. And we will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions."

And I think there are probably a couple of supporters right here who won't have a problem with what he is saying and will be blind to the hypocrisy,

Heard on CBS(I think) news a quote from Trump referring to "radical" democrats!  :o

I've not heard rhetoric like that for 'bout 50 YEARS! :D

Next you know, he'll say something like "hippy-dippy".  :D

Sepiatone

While you don't hear the term radical applied to Democrats, I don't think you hear it in reference to GOPers either, except by me.

Of course, it is hard to categorize the Dems because they represent such a wide range, sort of.  They go from moderate to very extreme.  There are a few conservative Dems left, but not many.  Whereas, the Republicans go from extreme to very extreme.  Their version of conservative is actually extreme.

Of course, he said the same things in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.  It is the GOPers in the Senate and House and the administration who are a threat to Medicare, Social Security and protecting patients with pre-existing conditions.

Will Kelly Craft be confirmed as U.N. ambassador? She may first face questions on how often she was present in her current job as U.S. ambassador to Canada.

Maybe we would be better off if a Trump ambassador or administrator spent less time at "work."  Then again, she may look at it in the way it worked for Nikki Haley.  Helped increase her stature within the party and the public view so that she could consider launching a bid for higher office.

On the other hand, I am not so sure it is really that important for us to have ambassadors anymore.  We now have instantaneous communication between governments.  You also usually have a well-trained and experienced state department staff in each embassy to deal with most situations.

So many of his supporters haven't had a lot of opportunity in life. So many of them probably feel worthless and are living their fantasies through him.

However, he's had every advantage in life, and then to see someone so selfish and limited in his Humanity is sad in itself.

I guess it's just another example of someone whose mother really didn't like him-- hate to say it, but could you blame her? LMREO

Reminds me of Huey Long. DUMP's followers remind me how Hitler came to power. They supported him to the end.

I don't equate DUMP with Long in all areas, as DUMP is one big con job. Just their power of persuasion and the adoration of their followers.

Been a long time since I read Long's biography, but from what I recall he was no where near as bad as Trump.  And he did make many changes in Louisiana that benefited the poor and the working classes.  He taxed big corporations, such as Standard Oil, to pay for it.

Of course, he also had a bad side, but even then not as bad as Trump.

She spent just enough time at work when in Canada to leave an impression, believe me.

Huey Long may have gone about things the wrong way but he was to the left of FDR and had plenty of enemies because of that.  Trump is a faux champion of the working class.  It is a con.

why isn't Danny Glover petitioning his fellow rich 1% Hollywood celebrities to give their personal contributions to reparations for slavery since many of them are white devil honkees?

:lol:

I wasn't clear in my post about "HIS" followers. I was referring to DUMP! I've changed it

I have no idea what your point is.  You seem to be lumping all things that you hate together.  White liberals, Hollywood types and ungrateful Black people to whom you time and time again remind everyone that they are "given" things all to frequently.

I'm not surprised to be reading **** like this anymore.

my point is that reparations for slavery is petty, hateful, divisive and not the thinking of anyone interested in harmonious co-existence with anybody or anything.

got it, cuddles?

I could think of arguments for why reparations are past their sell-by-date.  But "petty, hateful, divisive?"  Perhaps for racists but no, I don't think so.  Those comments are further reflection of someone who feels put upon by having to deal with bettering race relations.  You have made your position on "all lives matter" vs. "back lives matter" quite often.  

And what does Hollywood or Danny Glover have to do with any of this other than you trying to shuffle off what you think is a liberal issue on rich liberals?

Why should individuals contribute to slavery reparations? LOL. I guess they could if they wanted to. Isnt that something a government decides to do?

well, when I saw the hearing on cspan3 this morning with booker the on screen TV schedule had Danny Glover's name and he apparently had something to do with setting up the hearing...

and yes I do feel put upon having not been alive iduring the antebellum period in the south prior to the civil war so to tell living white americans they are somehow culpable for events and brutalities that occurred a century or more before they were born is not reasonable or rational and it also convinces them that those advocates for reparations could not possibly be interested in anything but hatred and divisiveness...

why, Bogie56 should I stand still for being hated upon for stuff I never did?...

would you?

:huh:

Much of your country was built on the backs of those slaves and the white race benefits from that today.  Some sort of acknowledgement of that might be a start.

But then again I don't think this is the whole story for put-upon whites.  This is just an easy issue to take a poke at when the reality of the divisiveness runs much deeper.
