OP-ED: Comey blew it

You can debate the definition of deplorable, I suppose, but anyone who supports Donald Trump, while understanding what he stands for, is deplorable. I’d almost say that’s objectively true. :slight_smile:

You stated she meant all. That’s unsupportable by fact as she said half.


#185

I’m not sure how you can argue that Trump voters who understand him and follow the news aren’t deplorable. Can you?


#186

I think that says more about yourself then them…don’t you think?


#187

No, not really. I think our country is too lenient towards bad behavior from Republicans. We pretend you are on equal moral footing with us. You aren’t.


#188

Thanks for that one.


#189

You just supported it. Thanks.


#190

And again…


#191

Nice. Whose morals?


#192

The quote …

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic – you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up. He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people – now 11 million. He tweets and retweets their offensive hateful mean-spirited rhetoric. Now, some of those folks – they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America.”

Need to get your masters to say this loud, say it proud for mid term election.


#194

Mine, which I think line up with the country’s. Or at least the parts of the country that matter. There’s a reason you guys can’t win an election the old fashioned way anymore.


#195

The old fashioned way?


#196

Getting more votes by swaying popular opinion.


#197

Getting more votes?


#198

Not those that matter huh?


#199

Which parts of the country don’t matter?


#200

Probably a reference to flyover country. Ironic since those voters decided the election.


#201

They don’t even see it do they?


#202

No, they don’t.


#203

By electoral advantage only.
