I remember when Obama made the very public statement about the gruesome beheading of James Foley and then immediately waltzed off for a round of golf on Martha’s Vineyard. Then he couldn’t help himself when he went on Meet the Press. They challenged him on the event and self absorbed Obana admits he should have not done that because the optics were wrong, but then went on to say “I’m not very good at theater” In Barry’s mind had he refrained from golfing that day, it simply would have been theater, an act. What a heart. What a phony.
What is particularly illuminating is the inability of Trumps’ acolytes to defend Trump’s words and actions. For example, respect to the House of Rep’s response to Trumps racist tweets what did the Republicans do? They tried a parliamentary procedure to stifle debate rather than defend Trump’s tweets. In this topic there is an attempt to rationalise and/or excuse Trump’s actions by trying to divert attention from them.
Precisely. The post I quoted in particular doesn’t seek to defend Trump’s actions. It just seeks to distract to “oh, look at what someone else did…” Someone else’s behavior is their own, and has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Trump’s words and actions on this particular matter (as well as others) have fallen far short of behavior we should expect from someone who is occupying the office of the President of the United States. His behavior as president reflects directly upon the reputation of this nation, and he is doing so in a shameful manner.
After Murad explained how her mother and six brothers were killed and that 3,000 Yazidis remained missing, Trump said, "And you had the Nobel Prize? That’s incredible. They gave it to you for what reason?"
With little pause, Murad, who was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last year, repeated her story.
He’s really a moron. Doesn’t anyone brief him before he meets people?
I thought that too until almost every thread here that is not about Trump will mention Trump.
For example the thread about if Radish lied on her affidavit, the 3rd post is about Trump. Same in almost every thread not about Trump.
