Kinda like Obama "not a citizen" or Trump "raped a teenager." Let's see the proof before we start thinking it's true.
 


I agree with you.

Just commenting based upon what was posted here.

This thread contains the first and only reference to this possibility that I have seen so far anywhere.

OK R_P, you probably have a point.  The Archie Bunker constituency simply grew in numbers and shrillness.    Back in the day, we were not enjoying cathartic laughs, we were being socialized to prepare for the future.

So I'm willing to think that he's just tone deaf about his "humor" but that quality means he shouldn't be doing anything other than being dependent on script from a teleprompter. Like he accused Obama of doing.

Some of his other comments like "threatening" to stay President forever can easily be blown up into "OMG!?!?!?! HE WANTS TO BE LEADER FOR LIFE!!!" when he's making a lame old man's idea of a joke, knowing it will also piss off his many detractors to think of it.

But as long as the anti-Trump majority can't put a squelch on their reflexive critique, his real (and horrible) blunders are lost in the constant and unimportant noise. There are some important things here that need addressing, mostly policy and law issues. Being distracted by every little thing is preventing effective opposition. And that's how he'll be re-elected.



I had a convo with our doc that touched on the Leader For Life subject last week. He actually believes that Trump is serious as a heart attack about wanting to do that. I tried to point out that it was a joke designed to rile certain people. He wasn't buying any of that. He is literally scared to death that it is real. Our convo ended on that note.

As illustrated by the two posts below that link Trump and his supporters like they are Siamese twins, the barrage of remarks like this will keep his base rock solid. Other than that, besides being bullying and hateful remarks in their own right, they also operate under the premise that all Trump supporters agree 100% on everything Trump is, says or does. I challenge anyone here to show me any politician running for POTUS that they support and agree 100% with.

I would think that we all make compromises and decisions regarding who has the best thoughts on what is important to one's self and hitch our wagons to the one(s) we agree with the most, even though it may be only 50% or even less. It could be because he / she is the only one who is even giving lip service to what is important to you. But that is the game we are playing. The payback is labeling all democrats as aligned and fully supportive of the Squad. I know that is certainly not true, but if you repeat anything enough it's gonna stick in someone's mind as the truth.

Also one last thought about Trump's base remaining solid is the widespread belief that Trump has been set up and framed in an ongoing quiet coup. He earns a tremendous benefit of the doubt for the way he behaves because the man is pissed off and rightfully so about it. I know that most of the people opposed to Trump think that talk about a coup is pure BS and a CT. The alleged coup is one of the centers of the divide and those backing Trump also see this coup as an attempt to personally disenfranchise their vote and overturn the election of 2016.

It’s horrendous that so many are still supporting a man who obviously wants as much power and money as he can get…. no matter who suffer. He adresses the American population… and the rest of us through his Twitter account, because he is incapable of expressing himself in a civilised manner. He even uses Twitter to fire people! Then, what can you expect from someone who eats junk food and can’t read a book!

Oh, didn’t he promise to reveal his tax-returns years ago? What’s happening with that? I am amazed it can go on!!
