The irony here is that most of the posters in this thread have been more manipulated through this stunt than the media and here they are congratulating him for it!

Basket of gullibles?


Way to go.

Start bashing Members and individuals.





Would you expect anything else from these people?
When civil discussion fails personal attacks are their best friend. I haven't had a legitimate debate here in a year because it always resorts to this kind of childish behavior. That and I have yet to see one of these liberals actually pose a legitimate argument to anything I have presented.


Some members get too distracted by personal attacks in these threads. Both in giving them, and in their reaction to receiving them. I wish they'd keep their energies focused on the subject. Just ignore when you're attacked, and don't attack others. Isn't that a sound formula for forums?

How dumb is it to piss off the collective media less than 2 months before the presidential election? Then he & his supporters will turn around & whine about why the media doesn't cover him in a positive way.

I'm almost convinced that he's trying to throw the election. And is supporters don't even seem to understand the possible ramifications of stunts like this.


Not really - the news media has just recorded it's lowest ranking ever for trust. You are in the minority if you believe what they say.

I would totally agree except that it's Trump and it seems that typical rules do not apply. This election is nothing short of a Black Swan and that was just another mini-Black Swan moment within it. Who can really say what impact it will have? The rule book has long been tossed, trampled on and worse.

Isn't this the guy who said that his sacrifices were as great as those of fallen US soldiers?

Something along those lines?

Shameful.

Actually, you're wrong. That clip was from 2012. LOL

Donald Trump: Hillary Clinton Will Run In 2016

In fact, here's the entire interview from 3-28-2012, just in case you doubt my source.

It has nothing to do with what I believe or not. It has everything to do with pissing off the collective media 7 weeks before the most important election in our country. They're literally the ones who control the narrative. Only a fool would intentionally piss them off while still campaigning for any office whatsoever. At its worst, it's political suicide.

What is the media going to do? Continue writing negative articles? It isn't like he was getting any real support from them. I read the NYT everyday. They must write two or three negative Trump articles everyday. How can they go any more negative without further eroding what little credibility they have left?

I recall his military prep school comment was made comparing that to many who'm have served.but mostly It was his biiiiig mouth again in an egoic based response he is prone to BLARE out.
We get it he has a BIG mouth and we also KNOW people like that in all of our lives.
I doubt he's reactionary ,just thoughtless on an inspirationally expressed level, it's rather CLEARLY noted in a big businessman's background.
Not Lawyers or politicians.
It's trainable.
Army should have taught him BEFORE in a friggin military prep school ,but....civilians are their own worst enemy when dealing with military and the idiotic,non stop assumptions,usually expressed in some blanket collectivist claims.

Do you think that all of the remaining undecided voters won't care about a constant barrage of new anti-Trump stories and investigations, with no positive stories to balance them? Not to mention, there are 3 presidential debates coming up as well as a vice presidential debate. Guess who's broadcasting them?

We're supposed to believe this is a dead issue now? Trump made sure he signaled to his racist supporters so that he doesn't lose them... he was announced by a birther and his campaign CEO, Steve Bannon's Breitbart News ran the story with a picture of Harambe.

It was a joke. Some can take jokes; some cannot.


That excuse was more of a joke than what Trump said.

People are on the look out for biased debates. If you think a campaign team is sitting around waiting for things to happen then that's up to you. Everything you are seeing is planned.

Ending posts with "keep on sucking at critical thought, comprehension, forming informed opinions, composition, posting anything of substance, etc. " must be far above Facebook adolescence somewhere in the world, I suppose.

Which part of "Obama was born in The United States. Period" did you not understand? That sounds pretty clear to me. I just can't see why it is racist. Bannon introducing him does not mean it was a hidden signal. Come on now!

Where's this Harambe article? I cannot find it, and I have to see this.
