    Donald trump Jr. is an asshole

    “These people are truly morons,” he told Laura Ingraham. “I went through the CDC data ’cause I kept hearing about new infections. But I was like, ‘Why aren’t they talking about deaths?’ Oh, oh, because the number is almost nothing!”

    I guess 1,049 Americans dying yesterday is insignificant to him.

    I however have morals.

    It's all good...
    Just trying to stay out of his thread.

    To put in in perscpective...
    More Americans have died of Covid in 2 days than died on Omaha Beach.

    The highest casualties occurred on Omaha beach, where 2,000 U.S. troops were killed, wounded or went missing; at Sword Beach and Gold Beach, where 2,000 British troops were killed, wounded or went missing; and at Juno beach, where 340 Canadian soldiers were killed and another 574 wounded.

    Donald Trump Senior also is an asshole. It's part of what makes him such a GREAT PRESIDENT. The reason our great country was circling the drain BEFORE TRUMP45 DROVE THE MONEYLENDERS FROM THE TEMPLE was 50 years of Republican presidents who were unwilling to fight dirty; to get down in the mud and wallow with the demoncrats. TRUMP45, OTOH, relishes in the opportunity fight back, and fight DIRTIER than the demoncrats. What's got their panties in a bunch now, the reason there is DEMONCRAT RIOTING going on all across the fruited plain, is that TRUMP45 FIGHTS DIRTY BETTER THAN THEY DO.

    As for Trump46, that the apple has not fallen far from that tree is our best hope that Junior will be every bit AS GREAT A PRESIDENT as Trump45.

    TRUMP46 : 2024

    If the demoncrats don't like it they can shit in one hand and wish in the other, then check to see which one fills up first.

    I admire that you actually responded to a post instead of copy and pasting.

    If you think that Trump has "drained the swap" then I guess you think hiring guys that get arrested while serving for Trump is a good thing...
    and that putting your family in charge when they have zero experience is a good thing...
    and that appointing a neuroradiologist as the head doctor versus an infectious disease is a good thing.
    I could go on and on but memes make it easier...

    Attachment 180115

    or if you can read non right wing propaganda try this...

    Draining the Swamp?

    Here’s a look at how swampy Trump’s appointments are based on their lobbying and fundraising

    https://time.com/donald-trump-drain-swamp/



    anyway...

    I do find it disturbing that you are fine with Trump and Jr. downplaying 1,000 Amercians dying a day simply so they can line their pockets.


    But my main point is...

    You really should worry about 2020 before you daydream about 2024.

    Not so sure political experience is really necessary. It may be more of an impediment. Quick thought when it comes to Kushner, he's succeded in multiple middle east peace agreements when decades of politicians failed. Is that a bad thing? It's talent that matters, not how long you've sat in public office.

    As far as the middle east goes...

    The ones who are at "war" are Palestine and Isreal...
    There will be no "peace" until that is resolved.

    Let's see how this agreement unfolds over the next several years.

    Many agreements are made to only be quickly broken.
    Think Hitler and Stalin druing the begining of World War II.

    If you don't see how putting yes men, as in your siblings, into positions of power is questionable at best then I would have to disagree with you.
    I would rather someone knowledgable put in place. (that doesn't mean those people have to be politicians...)

    But I will go back to what is the whole point of this thread...

    Trump and Trump Jr. believe that 1,000 Americans dying every day is almost nothing.

    And not one Trump supporter in this thread has condemned them for that belief.

    I personally would trade that "peace deal" for 1,000 American lives.

    I guess I am the nationalist now.

    I have seen people argue that they will vote for Trump because the stock market went up.
    guess what... the stock market does that over time...

    Attachment 180117

    Did you vote for Obama because the stock market went up?

    I have seen people argue that their house value went up.
    same as stocks... houses go up over time...

    I have seen people say green house gas emissions went down during Trump...
    guess what... that is because of Covid... has nothing to do with Trump pulling out of the Paris Accord or rolling back every EPA act out there.

    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/s...-not-for-long/

    The truth is...
    Trump inherited the longest economic expansion in history and drastically incresed the deficit.

    He has faced one major challenge during his presidency and failed miserably.
    And Americans are dying because of it.

    So you can cling to your stock market, or your house value, or your unfinished wall.

    Trump is on tape lying to us about covid from the beginning.

    And he is still lying now.

    If Americans dying doesn't open your eyes then I guess nothing will.

    We will see starting in 2 days how history is going to view Trump.

    People have already made their minds up, one way or another. It's wild to me that people don't see how ridiculous this family really is.

    The Slovenian whore who married for money is our First Lady. She looks like a scowling idiot. Two idiot sons who look like they got dropped on their heads at birth. What a charm. What a great family.

    A guy who's declared 6 bankruptcies and pays porn stars for sex is our president. What a great lesson to our children. If your own children knew what a guy Trump was, they would steer clear, but somehow the adults get duped.

    The guy who called our military "losers" and "suckers" gets the majority of veterans' votes. It's ok, he lies really well and makes people believe he cares about our veterans.

    Some people got too comfortable and want a tyrant to rule us. They don't want a president, they want a king. The same people who have been voting against their own benefit for years are voting for Trump. Nothing's changed. The uneducated and religious give their votes to crooks and weasels who will gladly pander to their religious and close-minded beliefs in exchange for their own monetary benefits.

    Who better to fight a woman's right to what she does with her own vagina, than a man who is willing to touch her vagina uninvited?

    Trump is turning our country into Russia 2.0, BUT MY STOCKS ARE UP!

    So because Palestine doesn't agree yet multiple other countries do, the deal is still bad. Glass half empty right? Let's remember, the Palestinian leadership pays the family of suicide bombers.....

    Let's see how this agreement unfolds over the next several years.

    Agree. There's never a guarantee but at least it's a good start. Far better than any predecessors.

    Many agreements are made to only be quickly broken.
    Think Hitler and Stalin druing the begining of World War II.

    If you don't see how putting yes men, as in your siblings, into positions of power is questionable at best then I would have to disagree with you.
    I would rather someone knowledgable put in place. (that doesn't mean those people have to be politicians...)

    So because they're family they're automatically "yes men." BS. So if someone in your family agrees with you they are yes men as well? I also guess you consider them not knowledgeable? I guess you're thankful Hunter is not campaigning for dad. Speaking of laptops....

    Where on earth do you get that assumption from? They've never said that. Sorry they're not pessimistic and looking for a "dark winter." I'm curious what Trump has not done regarding this pandemic. Hell, even the governors of CA and NY constantly praised him for his efforts. Biden plan is simply Trumps plan using different verbiage. Of course Joe wouldn't have closed air travel down for a couple months which would not doubt have resulted in an extremely amplified rate of death.

    I have seen people argue that they will vote for Trump because the stock market went up.
    guess what... the stock market does that over time...

    It does. Just like the earth warms and cools. Amazing.

    Attachment 180117

    Did you vote for Obama because the stock market went up?
    No, but I did vote for Obama once. But soon realized he was all talk (actually an amazing speaker) and no results, imho.

    I have seen people argue that their house value went up.
    same as stocks... houses go up over time...

    I have seen people say green house gas emissions went down during Trump...
    guess what... that is because of Covid... has nothing to do with Trump pulling out of the Paris Accord or rolling back every EPA act out there.

    He has faced one major challenge during his presidency and failed miserably.
    And Americans are dying because of it.

    Pandemics happen. He didn't create it yet he's done everything to fight it. He's not Nostradamus and could have predicted all this. Just thankfully Joe and Nancy weren't in charge as they would have done nothing to stop it when Trump did. And that's on tape. Yes, it's horrible people have died yet it could have been far worse. BTW, people die of all kinds of things every day. Hell, medical malpractice kills over 400,000 a year. No one seems up in arms about that.

    So you can cling to your stock market, or your house value, or your unfinished wall.

    Trump is on tape lying to us about covid from the beginning.

    And he is still lying now.

    If Americans dying doesn't open your eyes then I guess nothing will.

    We will see starting in 2 days how history is going to view Trump.

    Remove the personalities from the equation and look at results.

    Glass half full. Just a very small glass.
    My point is that the difficult peace deal is not still left to be done.

    So because they're family they're automatically "yes men." BS. So if someone in your family agrees with you they are yes men as well? I also guess you consider them not knowledgeable? I guess you're thankful Hunter is not campaigning for dad. Speaking of laptops....


    Trump has fired every person who isn't a yes man. Hell, he is even threatening to fire Fauci.

    As far as lap tops... We've been waiting 4 years for the Hillary BS to turn into something besides a hoax.
    My guess is that this laptop is also a hoax.
    Still waiting on Obamagate to unfold too...

    Where on earth do you get that assumption from? They've never said that.


    I will repeat this one again. For fuck's sake, the thread is about it...
    from post#1 above

    Trump JR...
    “These people are truly morons,” he told Laura Ingraham. “I went through the CDC data ’cause I kept hearing about new infections. But I was like, ‘Why aren’t they talking about deaths?’ Oh, oh, because the number is almost nothing!

    1000 people a day is not almost nothing.
    Please provide a counter argument.

    As for Trumpy Sr...
    All I can say is #roundingacorner

    The sheer fact that Trumpers don't give a shit that Trump and his cronies downplay 1000 American deaths a day is truly disturbing.

    So that is where my assumption comes from. It comes straight from the horses ass.

    Hell even just 18 of his rallies caused 700 deaths.

    Study: Trump rallies caused over 30,000 COVID cases, led to over 700 deaths

    https://www.fox5ny.com/news/study-tr...ver-700-deaths

    And he's has had over 100 rallies so you know...
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...mpaign_rallies

    Yet he mocks Biden for his virtual rallies.
    Fuck, maybe Biden didn't want to kill more Americans than Osama Bin Laden.

    Everyone knew that rallies where a bad idea.
    Ego man couldn't help himself.

    Pandemics happen. He didn't create it yet he's done everything to fight it. He's not Nostradamus and could have predicted all this. Just thankfully Joe and Nancy weren't in charge as they would have done nothing to stop it when Trump did. And that's on tape. Yes, it's horrible people have died yet it could have been far worse. BTW, people die of all kinds of things every day. Hell, medical malpractice kills over 400,000 a year. No one seems up in arms about that.

    According to a recent study by Johns Hopkins, more than 250,000 people in the United States die every year because of medical mistakes, making it the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer.
    Just because people die of one cause doesn't mean we shouldn't try to prevent other deaths.
    I could use your arguement for keeping abortions legal otherwise... hey... what's a few more dead right?

    I'm curious what Trump has not done regarding this pandemic.
    Trump has downplayed the epidemic from the getgo.
    He is on tape admitting it to Woodward. I am sure you have heard the recordings.
    His major mistake is downplaying the masks.
    The masks are the best defense we have in preventing its spread.
    He still mocks Biden and others to this day over its use.

    It amazes me that people wear pants everyday to cover their privates and don't view it is imposing on their freedom but..
    Wearing a mask to protect their infectious parts is imposing on their freedoms.



    If you feel like answering I would really like to hear how you, or anyone, is fine with Trump and Jr. being fine with 1000 dead Americans a day.

    Well said... it's a shame we have to explain these things to adults. Like, are we not all watching the same things unfold? Or do some of us get our info from Facebook and Trump tweets? How can facts be misconstrued? It's baffling.

    I wonder if they studied all the protests (riots) to see how many came from that.....but they're probably too busy rebuilding. Not to mention many business districts are currently boarding up to prevent damage post election. And the damage is not in case DT loses, it's if he wins. Imagine that.
    Lets remember, the mainstream media is about 90% liberal.

    I hate to chime in on this stuff since I'm 100% libertarian no one every takes our political views seriously.

    As soon as trump tried to implement a travel ban to the source country of the virus, and other countries hard hit the left screamed racism.

    Covid hits, then the left says why didn't he do something sooner.

    Just another example of how republicans and democrats can't agree on anything on any given day.

    I believe there is about a 1% difference in republicans and democrats and either candidate would happily piss on your head and tell you its raining.

    Obama promised change for 8 years... nothing really changed. Trump said he'd make america great again... nothing really changed.

    So what will happen if Biden is elected? The same thing that has happened for the past 40 years. The rich will get richer... the middle class will stay just happy enough to not really give a shit, and the lower class majority will constantly bicker back and fourth about racism, sexism, or whatever the media narrative is that week, too blind to see that the only color that matters and the only one we're divided by is green.

    So does your vote matter? probably not.

    Lets remember, the mainstream media is about 90% liberal.
    I will agree that the protests caused outbreaks and deaths from Covid.
    Please remember that there is a difference between a protest and a riot though.
    The first admendment gives people the right to protest.

    Note:
    About 93% of racial justice protests in the US have been peaceful, a new report finds
    https://myfox8.com/news/about-93-of-...-report-finds/

    The difference between the protests causing Covid and Trump causing covid is that:
    In order to stop the protests, thousands of people would have to be be convinced to not protest.
    In order to stop the rallies, just one man could've made that decision.
    Also, the protestors can't really have virtual rallies like Trump can.

    And the riots are bad. Pure and simple.
    Not gonna argue that.
    I'll use a Trump line here: "Lock'em up."
    I wish the police weren't so held back. (Not blaming the police, I believe the higher ups were scared to crack down hard and encite more rioting.)

    As far as the election:
    If Biden loses there will be riots. 100% chance (Hell, we've already had riots.)
    If Trump loses there will be militia and/or Trumpers causing mayham. 85% chance (Hell, we've already had a militia plan a kidnapping and civil war.)
    I am not in favor of any of these unfortunate situations.

    I really wish us, Americans, the best in the next week ahead.
    One way or another I hope we can rebuild.


    And I just want to add...
    I appreciate anyone expressing their views.
    We are all allowed to believe our own stupid ideas.
    What I don't admire is outright lying to promote a cause.

    Yeah thats pretty much what everyone else thinks it means too.

    The core principles behind the party are reducing federal oversight, returning power to the state and local govt. Our candidate this year will probably receive about 1.5-3% of the vote.

    I assume you were just making a joke though

    No offense meant. Just making a bad joke.

    Funny thing my son just made me take a test. I’ll post the results later. But it had me a tiny bit leftist and a little more bit Libertarian.

    No offense taken. Most of the time I talk to people about it, they have no clue what the party stands for or who its candidate is. Just why i had to make sure it was a joke. I think a lot of people are more in line with the parties values than they might realize.

    These individuals do represent us, correct? There was a rule that they were supposed to wear masks, correct? Qualified, maybe? Yes men, maybe? Good judgment and honoring rules, not so great.

    Image of Trump children not wearing masks at the first presidential debate.

    As soon as trump tried to implement a travel ban to the source country of the virus, and other countries hard hit the left screamed racism.

    Covid hits, then the left says why didn't he do something sooner.

    Just another example of how republicans and democrats can't agree on anything on any given day.

    I believe there is about a 1% difference in republicans and democrats and either candidate would happily piss on your head and tell you its raining.

    Obama promised change for 8 years... nothing really changed. Trump said he'd make america great again... nothing really changed.

    So what will happen if Biden is elected? The same thing that has happened for the past 40 years. The rich will get richer... the middle class will stay just happy enough to not really give a shit, and the lower class majority will constantly bicker back and fourth about racism, sexism, or whatever the media narrative is that week, too blind to see that the only color that matters and the only one we're divided by is green.

    So does your vote matter? probably not.
    A lot changed because he brought us out of a recession and an economic collapse. Republicans basically blocked anything he tried to do. That’s why a lot more wasn’t done. He tried, but the crooked right constantly blocked him. They actually vowed to block everything. They wanted to hurt his presidency and he still got re-elected. It’s not the same thing. We now have a pseudo dictator in office that doesn’t want to relinquish the presidency when he loses. He and republicans are actively trying to mitigate democratic votes. He has accepted and denied Russia and Chinas interference in our election process.

    We couldn’t be any more different. We vote people in who are humanitarians, who want progress. They want to keep things in the stone ages and shoot guns. Religion (Christianity) in schools, no abortion, guns galore, patriarchy, tax breaks for the already rich, top down economy (which has never worked), anti immigrants, global warming is a hoax or blown out of proportion, the president should be a tough guy dictator not a leader, etc.

    Pretty much every Republican president the last 34 years of my life has been shit. George Bush Sr., shit. George Bush Jr., shit. He left Obama with the worst economy in 100 years. Just so happens that democratic presidents tend to have to fix shit pubs put us in.

    And then Republican politicians blatantly lie. A lie is not a truth, and I can tell the difference. The constant theme of the Republican Party is to keep the people dumb. How else do you explain voting for tax cuts and benefits for the rich while denying you universal healthcare when you make $28k a year? How do all can hear blue collar folk vote for policies which unequivocally hurt them more than anyone? This is well documented.


    It seems to me the Republican Party has lost any decency or backbone it ever had for a racist charlatan liar with no integrity.

    That says a lot. There is a big difference.

    ^^ I agree republicans are shit too... but there's no argument that will make me think democrats are any better. Republicans may be crooked... liars, or whatever other terms you want to come up for them but they are effective in what they do at least. 30 years of carrying on something that they thought worked for reagan so it must work for all situations.

    Democrats are incompetent to the point of being hilarious. And also believe you can legislate the poor out of poverty by legislating the rich out of wealth. Cant pass a bill, can't keep a majority in congress or the senate long enough to make anything stick. Can't do anything without trying to add their own spin on it.

    Weather its trickle down economics from the Republicans, or socialism and increasing the welfare state from democrats neither idea shows any promise.



    Hence the two party system is broken and I refuse to choose the lesser of two evils. Its like going to a restaurant that serves two different kinds of shit sandwiches... why would i choose between them when i can just go somewhere else

    Please remember that there is a difference between a protest and a riot though.
    The first admendment gives people the right to protest.

    Note:
    About 93% of racial justice protests in the US have been peaceful, a new report finds
    https://myfox8.com/news/about-93-of-...-report-finds/

    A million protests are just fine. One violent riot with loss of life and millions in property damage is not tolerable.

    The difference between the protests causing Covid and Trump causing covid is that:
    In order to stop the protests, thousands of people would have to be be convinced to not protest.
    In order to stop the rallies, just one man could've made that decision.
    Also, the protestors can't really have virtual rallies like Trump can.

    And the riots are bad. Pure and simple.
    Not gonna argue that.
    I'll use a Trump line here: "Lock'em up."
    I wish the police weren't so held back. (Not blaming the police, I believe the higher ups were scared to crack down hard and encite more rioting.)

    Totally agree.

    As far as the election:
    If Biden loses there will be riots. 100% chance (Hell, we've already had riots.)
    If Trump loses there will be militia and/or Trumpers causing mayham. 85% chance (Hell, we've already had a militia plan a kidnapping and civil war.)
    I am not in favor of any of these unfortunate situations.

    Not so sure about the conservatives causing mayhem. And yes, that militia was just full of retards. One from my home state that the governor let out early....


    I really wish us, Americans, the best in the next week ahead.
    One way or another I hope we can rebuild.

    Absolutely.


    And I just want to add...
    I appreciate anyone expressing their views.
    We are all allowed to believe our own stupid ideas.
    What I don't admire is outright lying to promote a cause.

    (there are other things I hate, such as any mf'er stronger than me...)

    ​Great conversation DD. Let's see what the next week brings and hope for the best for our country.

    Thank you sir.

    By the way...
    I also hate fuckers who are older than me and still manage to be way more jacked than me.

    Honestly, when I first joined this forum I learned more from you than anyone.
    You have always been a god in the TRT forum.

    Enough kissing ass...

    Wow. People rationally disagreeing...it can be done? No name calling either? How ridiculous

    Then ending their dialogue with mutual respect and admiration? What the hell is happening here?!
