“‘Don’t just get involved. Fight for your seat at the table. Better yet, fight for a seat at the head of the table’ — Donald J. Trump.”

Just Kidding. we all know that Donald J Trump can not be that profound.

It actually from Barack Obama.

Meh. On one level I find that joke really, really funny and a pretty astute observation of modern day politics. On another, it’s a pretty cheep shot. The crowd, as most crowds, wouldn’t know the difference or realize they were being fooled in the moment.

So I get it, I chuckled, but there are better ways to call out Trump supporters on their bull ■■■■.

I thought it was funny, but what it really does is just illustrate how the lemmings walk lockstep with zero information.

The kid can work on his delivery a little. Let the applause roll on for a while, and as it naturally quiets down, that’s when you deliver the blow.

And before the obligatory “whataboutism”, I’m sure the exact same thing could be done in the reverse.

“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful – I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p**sy. You can do anything.”

That’s funny!

Meh, either way, they have nothing at their table that interests me

Don’t forget that interview Trump did with novelist Marilynne Robinson. Oh, wait:

This was petty…extremely petty at the same time it was absolutely brilliant. :rofl:
However, there are people pointing out the hypocrisy of this administration and its supporters everyday. Unfortunately, political hypocrisy transcends party. The only difference between Dems/Libs and Repubs/Cons is at least the Dems will kiss you before and after they screw you.

I knew that wasn’t a Trump quote when the morning news here ran the clip of that without tipping off the audience.

So not trump.

I concur. lol

:rofl::rofl: Predictable.

On a related note:

"But when you are invited, take the lowest place at the table, so that when your host comes, he will say to you, ‘Friend, move up to a better place.’ Then you will be honored in the presence of all your fellow guests. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
