What?

Calling her dishonest is an insult?

Do you need a safe space from the truth? I hear she's providing it to all sensitive souls...

Do you have reading comprehension problems? I didn't label you calling her dishonest an insult. I said that you saying that she was qualified just because she has a vagina is insulting.

Donald Trump is an insecure whiny little b# who is utterly incapable of keeping his "yuge" orange blowhole shut. He's got all the tact of a Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan in meltdown mode. Maybe he'll shave his head and start shoplifting next (hopefully he avoids soft porn, the world doesn't need to see that).

The smart thing to do would have been to let the Khan's comments slide like water off a duck's back. Of course, Donald Trump is such a petty tool that ignoring any slight — perceived or actual, justified or not — is simply not an option.

To top it all off, he's completely clueless about world affairs. For a major party candidate less than four months from the election to be so blithely ignorant is inexcusable. Of course, in typical Donald Trump fashion, he says completely erroneous/stupid/offensive crap on TV when he's on the spot because he has no frickin idea what the hell he's talking about and then takes to Twitter to try to "clarify."

Agree 100%.

Is cognitive dissonance the topic here or politics?

If it's politics, the loser has been chosen. The loser is Hillary Clinton. Screw her, because Bill sure as hell won't.

Just another example of the cognitive dissonance that abounds in Trumptown.

Oh, I have no delusion that people will think twice about their devotion to Trump. It is too late to reach his zealous followers. I know you've been trying, as many others have, but once the dissonance is embraced as it has been, nothing can shake it. It's like trying to tell a devoted follower of a cult that their messiah is a sham...



I hope we get Trump, And I hope it hurts us, I hope it hurts us so damn bad that it finally shakes people awake.


But even if that happens, his followers will not blame Trump! It will be blamed on Obama, Hillary, the Muslims, women or Trump's detractors... And his faithful will jump in the victim boat with him and cry how UNFAIR it is!

This is how ridiculous he is. Both the Republican and Democrat conventions spent a HUGE amount of time talking about how awful the other side was, yet Donald pretends like it was just Hillary doing it.

What the hell are you talking about?

You asked me if crooked is an insult; and I told you that it is not.

WOW. Are you serious here or really just that ignorant? I mean I'm rarely nice when talking about Trump, but man at least I can be honest and say that I'm insulting him. You are so far gone that you honestly believe that a demeaning nickname that Trump thought up is supposed to be endearing to Hillary Clinton.

Insults are problematic now? Now where do you think people are posting in right now. The Mud Pits.

English is not my native language.
According to google translate, crooked means dishonest.

Is that not true?

I can not figure out if he is completely unhinged or just throwing the election. He just makes things up and then denies he said it. He has to have the thinnest skin of anybody I have seen run for public office. He loves to insult people but, has hysterical melt downs when people talk about him. He has no idea what he is talking about when it comes to world even after all these briefings and then gets mad when people call him out on it. He even thinks his own supporters are stupid and at times rubs it in their faces. He clearly resents anybody who he think may be more respected then he is which is why he is always taking digs at the military and veterans. He clearly thinks women are simply objects to be looked at and that they should shut up and not have opinions. He seems to hate what little he knows about the Constitution even calling the 1st overrated. He says he is for all these things but, all his actions say different. He has either lost his mind or he is just trowing the election.

Even his fans are affected by it. I mean I'm arguing with some guy who can't tell what is and isn't an insult.

First, no. It doesn't mean crooked. That is just a slang use of the word. Second, it is a demeaning slur not meant to be endearing. Therefore it is an insult.

Third, I don't accept your "English isn't my native language" excuse. You knew DAMN well you were insulting her. If I started calling you Crooked Nikola, I'd have my posts removed from ATS for manners offense, and you should know this too. So faking a language barrier is just a sad cop out.

Here's a better list

He's not even creative. I could easily create a Donald Trump Twitter bot in about two hours just using his favorite insults (things like "dumb," "dummy," "failure," "loser," and "liar") and it would be indistinguishable from the real thing.

Title: The Cognitive Dissonance of Donald Trump
First sentence: I'm writing this to illustrate the cognitive dissonance of Mr. Donald Trump... And his followers.

Hope that clears up what the topic is.

I know! I was going to include that apparent mental disparity in my OP, but there are SO many examples, I decided to pare it down to three. I'd be here for 2 months if I covered all I've noticed that's out of integrity with Donald Trump...

Knowing Hillary is a pathological liar and a criminal, I will believe Google over Hillary's follower anytime of the week. Sorry man, nothing personal.

Crooked Hillary = criminal. Lock her up mister Trump!

Lol at this statement, "I will believe Google..." HAHAHA. Talk about gullible. You'll believe anything if it agrees with you, won't you?

Hell, I'm not even saying anything definitive. Just giving you a grammar lesson on insults, yet you choose to believe Google over me on what is an isn't and insult. Your rhetoric is hilarious and so contradictory.

I think at this point, he will not win. Yes he has his rabid supporters but those on the fence are starting to jump off.
There is a saying.."better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid..then open it and remove all doubt" ..one could replace "stupid" with a number of applicable word's.. It's like he is trying to throw it at times.
I love the people who say they are voting for him because he pisses people off..brilliant strategy.
