You can read. Good. Work on comprehension next. He came right out with what he wanted to say. That's not a strawman.



That Trump's a liar, yes I know I read it, starred it, flagged it, agreed with it, and then defended it.

What Xuenchen said never occurred.
It was a false argument.

I'm sorry I'm kinda confused by your vague response.

Are you calling him out or apologizing for Hillary?

- Trump had the same info as the normal citizen.
- Hillary should have had the classified information.
-Trump had no power to start or stop a war.
- Hillary had and used her power to vote to send our Military to war.

He can be forgiven . Every body flipped. He was never a leader just a follower. Of trends of the crowd. I remember that trump I'm a native New Yorker and eleven years younger than trump. He followed the crowd . Studio 54 for sure. He had to be seen. Heard noticed.


He could be forgiven if he just admitted he said it.
He continues to lie about it.

That's not forgivable.

Considering anyone who spoke up against the war was labelled a traitor and a hater of the military, I'm not surprised a businessman who relied on public image said '' yeah i guess so '' when asked about the Iraq War.

This is too humorous. 😂😂😂

Compare Trump's lies to Hillary's? S.E.R.I.O.U.S.L,Y.?

How does she lie to thee, let me count the ways...


Sure...let's count the lies.

Trump Lies 71% of the time

Hillary Lies 28% of the time

So in some morning radio show; when he was their to shoot the breeze with a guy who aske's his guests if he can smell their fingers... when asked "do you support the war" he answers with the most unenthusiastic "I guess so" I ever heard and this some how puts him on part with Clinton who actually voted to go to war in Iraq?


Hillary Clinton admitted she made a mistake.

Trump denies ever supporting the Iraq War...which is a lie.

Transcript from the video:
Stern: (who knows what was said before) like a sitting duck

Trump: But we have an idea who the enemy is and like a lot of times the politicians don't wanna tell you that.

Stern: Are you for invading Iraq

Trump: Yeah, I guess...sooooo. Um. You know I wish it were, I wish the first time it was done correctly.



OK maybe I am missing something here. First, he was NOT a politician then....he is calling them out. Just like he is doing now Second, that is NOT him calling for war! It is a private citizen who only has access to the same facts the rest of us had and we were PISSED. As Toby Keith said, we all wanted to put a boot in your ass
It`s the American way




He's still not a "politician"...not unless he gets elected.

But why does that excuse his comments? All the comments he uses as examples that says he was against the Iraq War are from before he was a "politician"...why do those count and this one doesn't?

I don't know why this is so hard to understand...Trump did in fact support the Iraq War...those are just the facts.

I'm going to be both supporting Trump and putting him down in this statement.

Saying "I guess so" has never meant support for anything. No one says "I guess so" because they support something. It does not happen.

When someone says I guess so it means, "I disagree but I'm too much a pussy to make a stand on this issue, so I'm reluctantly going along with it."

So no Trump didn't lie about never supporting the war in Iraq, it just so happens when it came up on Howard Stern he was too much a pussy to really say what he really thought.

So one weak comment makes him an Iraq war monger?


Ummm...no...I don't think I ever claimed that.


But this one comment does make him a liar...which is what the thread is about.

OMG are you serious!?!?!
THIS is all I need to see. The FBI said she lied to the American people!!!! Because that entire answer is a LIE. Comey said she lied. You can't honestly think the percentages are even close to the truth!

I marched against the Iraq War in NYC in 2004.

It wasn't what EVERYBODY wanted..

However, SOMEBODIES kept telling us who were against it that we were unpatriotic traitors and NOBODIES.

That way they could still pretend that EVERYONE was for the war.

Oh look, the Trump psychic is back..letting us all know what he really meant even though it isn't what he said.

So glad you are hear to clear things up...because Trump keeps saying idiotic things, but good thing you KNOW what he meant.

However, what he meant doesn't count...it's what he says that counts.

And yes, he is still a liar.

I didn't march but me and most of my friends were like, "Why the # are we going into Iraq, they have literally nothing to do with 9-11." I wasn't on here at the time, but was very vocal on another website about it.

Um, yes...they are more than close...they are spot on.

Go ahead, prove it wrong...I would love to see your proof.

So when you say "I guess so" it's because you're in full enthusiastic agreement with it?

"I guess so" is an affirmative, not a negative.

Question: Can I slap you in the face?
Answer: I guess so.

Guess what's happening?

Because Idioms have definitions too

Usage notes: said instead of saying yes to suggest you are not completely sure

Well if you call BS...then yes, you kind of have something to prove.

I gave you factual information, and you are saying it's false...so prove that it is false.

Facts are a funny thing...they aren't just something that you can ignore and wish they weren't true.

I'd much rather worry about which is worse. Perhaps Lying, perhaps forgeting, about what you might have told Howard Stern 14 years ago. Or helping to get the country into a war that was a mistake.

Na your right Trump's much worse on this point.
