Wait I thought everybody was equal? What page did that change on?


It changed when the OP contradicted his own pedantic linguistics with regards to his piss poor usage of the term "equals".

But hey, it's not like I'm pedantically keeping score and tossing around the cheap jabs at any given opportunity... or any other type of silly grade school antics.

Trump Has Insulted on Twitter: A Complete List


And that's just Twitter. He tends to not refute, deny nor invite debate... just insults.




It's not an insult if it's true.

I was really hoping you could've worked "pedantic" in to your comment one more time to nail a hat trick...

Such a let down.

A hat trick...

Dammit, I was this close... this close !



I'm a pathetic excuse of a Canadian.

I officially hand in my Canuck card and vehemently apologize to all my fellow brethren.

As a Canadian that doesn't even know what pedantic means, I accept your apology.


On my way to google now..

I don't mind admitting when I use the wrong words. You should try it some time. Start with "pedantic", end with "contradicts", both of which you use wrongly.

According to a Gallup poll, the majority of Americans who disapprove of President Donald Trump do so not because they are opposed to his policy and results, but because they do not like his character or personality.

Yes, probably quite true.
From someone who never watched his reality show, and has been playing catch up on what kind of guy he actually is:

History of not paying contractors after they complete work. That's the kind of thing I've experienced myself, tends to prejudice me against those sorts.

Pays settlements in order to avoid criminal prosecution. eg. Taj Mahal Casino case involving over a hundred known instances of money laundering.

Hob Nobs with and enters business partnerships with convicted felons, then claims he doesn't know who they are. Flat out lies.

Engages in frauds like Trump University.

Goes bankrupt repeatedly, yet claims to be a Business wiz. (self-delusion)
etc. etc.


We also know from the many negative, and often obsessive references to his mannerisms, his hair, his voice, his skin, his body, they also take issue with how he looks. These and other extrinsic critiques of a person are evidence of snobbery.

You made a very bizarre jump from character and personality to mannerisms and looks. Therefore the rest of your post has no relevance, except as a diversion.

This country has a metastasized tumor called the media and it will eventually cause our painful deaths if we don't start chopping on the rotting limbs it's infecting.

The media:

Vocalizing
Painting
sculpture
music
plays
radio
movies
newspapers
books
Internet webpages, encyclopedias, forums, blogs, tweets

Don't expect any help from me in the chopping.

So I guess you won't be voting for him in 2020?

As to the snobbery problem in the world today, yes it goes beyond our borders, I think a couple well placed broken schnozzes will dial back some of the bigotry.

Good thread Les, you make a valid point and in truth, I do see a lot of that.

Yes, I will not vote for him in 2020.

You know it is a choice to be offended. Just don't let stuff get to you.

That's a price I'll gladly pay.

And I thought I was having fun on yours. I want a refund.

I don't know how it has no relevance, mostly because you never argued you assertion. Therefor your point, if you can call it that, is fallacious.

But yeah there is thirty plus years of Trump on public record. It's possible you're being fed half a story, for a guy playing catch up and all.

My mistake. I see now that the 29% listed as not approving due to Not presidential/Bad temperament/Arrogant/Obnoxious could be said to object to his manner.

Character/Personality-related 65

Not presidential/Bad temperament/Arrogant/Obnoxious 29

Inexperienced/Doesn't know what he is doing 10

Looking out for himself/Doesn't consider people's needs 6

Use of social media/Twitter 6

Untrustworthy 6

Racist/Sexist 3

Not knowledgeable 3

Wishy-washy 2



It's possible you're being fed half a story, for a guy playing catch up and all.

It's a big plate, but I do have some small control over the eating utensil.

I also mentioned the ridicule of his looks and mannerisms, ie his skin, his voice, his hair, his handshakes, his dialect,his lifestyle, and so on. I used another link for some reference.

Saying that is basically the equivalent of saying "I know you are, but what am I?"
