The news media constantly finds new ways to tell us that Presidential Donald Trump is an existential threat. However, the biggest threat Trump seems to pose is to the news media’s credibility. Unfortunately, there are still people out there who believe the news media. Here is an example, a comment from the previous post.
What am I suppose to do with this comment? Well, tsalmon obviously thinks I am suppose to be shamed into supporting Hillary Clinton for president. I am suppose to walk over to the White House, boot Trump out, and install Hillary so Bill can start chasing around White House interns again.
Does anyone miss Bill and Hillary? I don’t. So I guess I will start down tsalmon’s list until I get bored with it. tsalmon obviously doesn’t get the other side of the story.
0. If you don’t like this country and it’s government, why don’t you do what Trump said, and go back to the country that you came from? This one is so dumb it’s funny. Consider a previous comment about AOC from tsalmon.
Ultimately, I think that who most of us vote for, even supposed intellectuals like you and I, is more emotional than rational, more “Duck Dynasty” than “Frontline”. Those prejudices you talk about infect us all. How else could we end up with a reality TV President. You may gloat now, but Donald Trump is just an savant opportunist who jumped on this new bandwagon for a buck or two – AOC is a true ideologue who was bread into this game. God help us all brother. (from here)
tsalmon doesn’t have anything nice to say about the leader of “The Squad”. So why is he mad at Trump? Just read Trump’s tweets. They are not racist or hateful of woman. Trump has specific complaints about what these women have said. So in defense I have copied his tweets. Note I have also linked to the original tweets (#1, #2, #3,… contain the links.).
Since Twitter is confusing, the order below is a bit confusing. What I did is put the six sections below in chronological order. However, the tweets within each section should be read from the bottom up. That is because Twitter posts the latest tweet at the top of the list.
So what do I think? I think Trump did what he said. He tricked the rest of the Democrats into embracing “The Squad”. Why? See ‘The Squad’ Hits Back at Trump’s Racist Tirade: ‘We Will Not Be Silenced’ (thedailybeast.com)). The Democrat leadership — Nancy and Chuck — would love love to disassociate themselves from “The Squad”, but they are too popular with the other radicals in the party.
The fact Trump’s tactic worked is funny. The fact the Democrats have become so terribly, insanely, radical is sad, and it is about time tsalmon admitted it. Trump did not say anything about The Squad that is any worst than what other Democrats have said. They are just mad Trump said what he said.
1. Trump and convicted pedophile Epstein used to pal around together. Jeffrey Epstein use to pal around with lots of people, including Bill Clinton. Apparently, Epstein is a charming fellow, but not to be trusted, and Trump figured that out a long time ago.
- Trump Banned Epstein From Mar-a-Lago Years Ago, Here’s Why… (thefederalistpapers.org) Note that Facebook does not like thefederalistpapers.org. Great recommendation for the thefederalistpapers.org.
- Trump barred Jeffrey Epstein from Mar-a-Lago over sex assault: court docs (nypost.com)
Epstein was a Democrat donor. If any politicians need to explain unsavory connections with Epstein, it is Democrats not Republicans, and Bill Clinton is at the top of the list.
Will Epstein name names. Probably not. He can afford some good lawyers, but some of his victims may pursue the matter. Since there is lots of money involved, we can expect lawyers will track down every possible lead.
Anyway, I have other things I need to do, like sleep. However, I welcome anyone who wants to amuse themselves at the Democrats and the news media’s expense. Have at it. tsalmon had lots of questions.
