    It is so crazy how he thinks he doesn't come of as a complete idiot at all his press conferences, lol, and keeps doing it. He isn't learning any lessons at all. It's pretty delusional.

    This is where it's amazing how two people can watch the same thing and come to a completely different conclusion. I thought it was a masterful performance. And I do mean "performance".
    Why do you think him acting like a bumbling, racist moron is a masterful performance? If you think he is acting like that on purpose to... what? Make everyone make fun of him? - and not even stringing full sentences together for the most part - then I don't even know what to say to you. Trump acts like that because that is who and what he is, not because he's putting on an act in an attempt to.... make everyone think he's a fucking idiot? Or am I completely misinterpreting your post??
    At what point in time has Donald Trump been racist?
    What did he say today that would be considered offensive to any race?
    If anyone out here that is of a different race than Donald Trump, I'd be interested to know what offended you.
    Please don't blast me for asking.
    Anyway that's what many of us like, is the bumbling,nonscriped off the cuff talking. He may not be the smoothest speaker, I'll give you that, but he didn't need a teleprompter either.
    When he says the same thing twice which he does all the time, that is a mental pause while he is deciding what to say next.
    Some people just say (huhhh, uhhhhh uuuum)
    then continue.
    We covered trump being a racist months ago in here. Everyone agreed, like we often do, and moved on.
    Alright I'm a relatively new poster, I've got like 200 posts, compared to most of you who have thousands. Maby I've posted 200 to many and should probably stay out of this place, probably not welcome here..
    So, but I missed it, I have a really good ear and am as anti racist as you can be. At what point has the Donald Trump been racist? What race of people can't stand him? Tell me who they are?
    (You had this discussion months ago & you
    ALL agree.)
    No snark here, just respectfully curious.

    Well there are two prime examples:

    1. His comments about Mexican being rapists and criminals ("and I assume maybe some that aren't) was certainly bordering on racism.
    2. The fact that he is anti-Islam is racist. No he's never said "I hate Muslims" but it's the discriminatory actions that make clear what he (and his puppet master Bannon) believe. Religious intolerance is no different than hating black or brown people.

    Edit - and that's without discussing some of the fair housing lawsuits that were levied against him.

    Hey man, honestly, stick around. This place needs people challenging those of us who don't care for the President. Two way conversation is the only way to make progress in politics.

    I do believe that Trump ran a racist campaign. I don't know if I believe that Trump the man is a racist, but Trump the candidate and the President plays on fears of other races. When he says Mexicans are sending criminals and rapists, the logic of that is to play on the public's fear of losing their country to Mexicans. When you say that a religion is at war with us and that you're proposing restricting access to people of a certain religion from certain areas...that's racist. When you actually make a preference in refugees coming from one religion over another, it's racist.

    So there's that. Stick around here though, man. We'll do battle plenty I'm sure but if we ever met at a show- who gives a shit about A Moving Train?

    That's trump being trump, with an even higher level of frustration and stress. Stop acting like he's some wizard. He's a pro-wrestler in a suit.

    There was nothing racist about it...that's just ridiculous. Aside from that though you are missing the difference between what I like and what I think works. I don't "like" Trump speaking the way he does but I recognize it's devasting effectiveness. That is the Trump that won the election. He will continue to win this way.
    we know you don't "like" it. That's not what anyone is driving at. What we're driving at, or at least I am, is that he is not planning this. He is not being masterful or brilliant in any way, shape or form. He is being himself, and some people eat it up. Because they are as stupid as he acts.

    Dropping a hammer and it coincidentally hitting a nail does not make one a master of craftsman.

    Illegal or not, the information is true. By definition, a leak is true.

    exactly. the very founding of this country was pushback against power. what is a leak other than pushback?
    If that is the case than why so mad if Trump colluded with Russia to leak the Hillary campaign's emails? Just pushback, you know, the foundation of this country?
    colluding with an adversarial foreign power in the electoral process is a lot different than leaking pertinent info on corruptable power. And in the early stages of this particular administration, its a civic obligation imo.
    Hillary was a corruptable power. The FBI was giving everybody the heads-up. It was just pushback.
    still not the same ballpark. at all. preventing corruptable power so corruptable power can take office? stop insulting my intelligence.

    props to the deftness of your PM the other day btw.
    The only thing that has been suggested to be corruptable right now is Flynn post-lie to Pence. I'm not sure how that's worse then the known corruptable power that was Hillary. Not the same ballpark. At all.

    In terms of my PM...Yeah. I don't like him but he played it right.
    Oh that's just laughable! The billionaire businessman who used his campaign to enrich his business is not a known corruption risk? Laugh out loud.

    This is more entertaining then the HBO show VEEP. Ratings are going to be HUGE

    Big fan of VEEP. Have read that the writers are struggling with the show pretty much being reality at this point. Nothing they write will be surprising or shocking anymore.

    Jared Kushner Delivers Critique of CNN to Time Warner Executive
    Trump’s son-in-law and adviser complains that coverage has been slanted against the president


    In the final stretch of the presidential campaign, Mr. Trump said he would block the agreement and singled out the news network in his statement. “AT&T is buying Time Warner, and thus CNN, a deal we will not approve in my administration,” he said. The deal will be reviewed by government agencies including the Justice Department.

    Such rhetoric from a presidential then-candidate and meetings such as the one between Messrs. Kushner and Ginsberg are unusual, according to Mark Feldstein, journalism historian at the University of Maryland.

    “Lord knows that every president has been angered by their news coverage, going back to George Washington,” said Mr. Feldstein. “But to engage in that kind of bare-knuckled tactics is extraordinary.”

    Mr. Kushner has taken issue with specific CNN contributors including Van Jones, a Democrat who served in the Obama administration, and Ana Navarro, a Republican strategist, who have each criticized Mr. Trump in harsh terms, the people familiar with the matter said.
