    You don't say?  The stations that ask questions he doesn't want to answer, eh?  Par for the course.  If you aren't spewing alt-right propaganda, he doesn't want to speak to you.

    There is nothing wrong with loving the balloon.  I'm saying the mayor of London should have took the high.  Trump might add 25% tariffs on tea...
    Not allowing the balloon would have been taking the low road, not the high road. Squashing non-violent free speech that isn't hate speech is never the high road IMO.

    I'll hand it to the Brits - they are probably the most creative protesters in the world, lol. That dry English sense of humour serves protesting surprisingly well, haha.

    Flying the number of balloons for the number of children in the detention facilities waiting to be re-united with their parents would have been the high road and would have had a greater impact. Flying a balloon to depict someone that you don't like in bad light just makes you look like an immature schoolyard bully. It only lessons your objective to sway his supporters to your corner.

    Well as far as I know, there weren't any protestors who came up with your idea. Too bad you didn't make that idea a reality yourself. The Trump balloon wasn't the mayor's idea - He had nothing to do with it. He just didn't stop it from being flown by protestors, and him not stopping it is what was the high road, and him not allowing it would have been the low road. You obviously think that the protestors who flew the balloon took the low road, but that's not what I'm talking about.

    So if some hate group decided to fly a baloon depicting some mockery of whoever they don't approve of was allowed by the London  mayer, that then would be taking the high road in your opinion? Free speech is 100% a right but where does it stop? Where does it begin to become intimidation? There are many more positive ways to proove your point but we're all guilty of taking the low road from time to time. It's our begative human nature that gets the best of us at times and inly allows our point of view to be deminished.

    Yes, of course, not stopping PEACEFUL protestors who are not creating hate speech from flying a balloon is taking the high road in all cases (the hate speech thing is an important caveat because no, a balloon that depicted, say, Obama hanging from a rope or a Jew sticking out of an oven would not be okay for obvious reasons, while Obama depicted as a baby would be). I don't have to agree with the protestors for this to be true. Man, flying a funny balloon is not intimidation. I think you're taking that balloon way too seriously. Did you not see all the signs and everything throughout those anti-Trump protests? The balloon was actually one of the more mild means of expression. I don't understand why you are so bothered by the thing TBH. And I don't why you think the mayor of London should be the one to prevent protestors from doing something that's legal and an expression of free speech.

    I was only making a suggestion on what could have been done in a more positive tone. Creating a thread specifically about an immature way of getting a point across is more of a concern for some. lol.

    There was no intimidation. It was a parody. Are you really that concerned with this treasonous traitor's feelings? He has no concern about the feelings of anyone other than himself, so I'm not sure your concern for his is warranted or deserved. The protest was a completely relevant and effective form of protest, caused nobody harm, and received exposure. Mission accomplished.

    I'll hand it to the Brits - they are probably the most creative protesters in the world, lol. That dry English sense of humour serves protesting surprisingly well, haha.
    Flying the number of balloons for the number of children in the detention facilities waiting to be re-united with their parents would have been the high road and would have had a greater impact. Flying a balloon to depict someone that you don't like in bad light just makes you look like an immature schoolyard bully. It only lessons your objective to sway his supporters to your corner. 
    Well as far as I know, there weren't any protestors who came up with your idea. Too bad you didn't make that idea a reality yourself. The Trump balloon wasn't the mayor's idea - He had nothing to do with it. He just didn't stop it from being flown by protestors, and him not stopping it is what was the high road, and him not allowing it would have been the low road. You obviously think that the protestors who flew the balloon took the low road, but that's not what I'm talking about.
    So if some hate group decided to fly a baloon depicting some mockery of whoever they don't approve of was allowed by the London  mayer, that then would be taking the high road in your opinion? Free speech is 100% a right but where does it stop? Where does it begin to become intimidation? There are many more positive ways to proove your point but we're all guilty of taking the low road from time to time. It's our begative human nature that gets the best of us at times and inly allows our point of view to be deminished. 
    Yes, of course, not stopping PEACEFUL protestors who are not creating hate speech from flying a balloon is taking the high road in all cases (the hate speech thing is an important caveat because no, a balloon that depicted, say, Obama hanging from a rope or a Jew sticking out of an oven would not be okay for obvious reasons, while Obama depicted as a baby would be). I don't have to agree with the protestors for this to be true. Man, flying a funny balloon is not intimidation. I think you're taking that balloon way too seriously. Did you not see all the signs and everything throughout those anti-Trump protests? The balloon was actually one of the more mild means of expression. I don't understand why you are so bothered by the thing TBH. And I don't why you think the mayor of London should be the one to prevent protestors from doing something that's legal and an expression of free speech.

    I was only making a suggestion on what could have been done in a more positive tone. Creating a thread specifically about an immature way of getting a point across is more of a concern for some. lol. 
    There was no intimidation. It was a parody. Are you really that concerned with this treasonous traitor's feelings? He has no concern about the feelings of anyone other than himself, so I'm not sure your concern for his is warranted or deserved. The protest was a completely relevant and effective form of protest, caused nobody harm, and received exposure. Mission accomplished.

    Yes.

    He'd love nothing more than to flaunt his obscenity- mocking everyone he felt inclined to do so- without any blowback... as do all 'bullies'. Bullies love to do their thing without being challenged in any way. They actually don't like people standing up to them and normally... the bullying behaviour stops once they are challenged.

    In McDonald's case, he has a lifetime of being a prick with multiple support systems protecting and enabling him as he conducted himself as one. He doesn't understand the attention being tossed back at him because that type of response has never occurred before. He used to work in the shadows; however, as POTUS... he works under a microscope and this has revealed a lot.

    Not allowing the balloon would have been taking the low road, not the high road. Squashing non-violent free speech that isn't hate speech is never the high road IMO.

    I listened to what he said yesterday and couldn't believe that the President of our country would  publicly sided with Putin against our own intelligence agency. I'm not siding with him or feeling bad for him. I think after what was said yesterday, he should step down and let Pence take over. I was only suggesting a better way imo that would not make people say oh look at how they make fun of our President. It only helps the cause of people who are going to refuse to see what he said to the F'n world was wrong.  Once again I was giving my two cents on what could have had more impact on the issues we have.

    I think that's a fair enough opinion. It's just the blaming any of it on the mayor of London that I have an issue with.
