They can't even admit they were had by a joke.


First line of Tweet you share:

"Damnit guys, I got totally punked on the Gorilla Channel thing"

And you're calling people deranged?


Yeah but he couldnt just own it. He had to make an excuse, pointing blame elsewhere and not accepting full personal responsibility...but I understand you types have a hard time comprehending the totally foreign concept. All you were able to see is that he admitted being punked. Your brain would not allow you to acknowledge the very simple concepts OP was patiently attempting to explain for you. Yes, he admitted he was taken, but he still found a way to turn it around against Trump. Eating in bed?? Who the hell does That? Oh yeah... Literally every person Ive ever shared a bed with probably!

You seem so angry on these forums.

Why are you so angry?

Is it because Trump is your president?



He doesn't seem angry to me, but you seem to be triggered.

Why are you so triggered?

Is it because your president is such an embarrassment?

Yes, I'll admit it. Obama was such an embarrassment.

I think the op has a point in that there have been quite a few folks who fell for this, then blamed Trump for their naivete because he makes it so believable.

Its one thing to get suckered by confirmation bias. Its another to blame someone else for it because you feel foolish.

Yea, but he did own it. Changing his twitter bio to make fun of himself sorta goes against the whole “can’t own it” narrative.

The OP was written poorly, and the edit fiasco castrated the effort to present a narrative.

Broad brush politics is low brow politics to be sure. But for anyone who does blame Trump for their naivete, using a roundabout logic matrix to do so, it would be nice if they'd reconsider that position for their own benefit.

About as nice as it would be for those who hate all things left to exhibit the same reconsideration, I’m sure we agree.

LOL, just was posting about the same in the ROsie Odonnel thread.

Its what you call "politics". If there was a grown up table, i'd love to sit there instead.

I don't think you know what an alpha male is, if you think Trump is alpha.

An alpha male does not brag about his money, his looks, his smarts, anything of the sort.

An alpha male just is.

Even the new image says outright “I believed it at first”... 😂

3rd time lucky, perhaps?


I mean the point stands though. They know there is no such thing as "The gorilla channel" that airs gorillas fighting 24/7, but they believed it anyway.

Proving they will believe anything said about Trump by anybody. And even still, they try to play it off by saying "he eats kfc in bed."

Like pick on the OP all you want, his point stands, this is total lunacy.

On that note, somebody would still need to supervise Rosie.

Otherwise she might eat all the kids’ food

So being anti-Trump automatically makes you the superior intellectual?


No. Me not being stupid makes me not stupid.

I dunno...Gaston liked to brag about his alpha traits


No one's slick as Gaston
No one's quick as Gaston
No one's neck's as incredibly thick as Gaston's
For there's no man in town half as manly
Perfect, a pure paragon!
You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley
And they'll tell you whose team they prefer to be on




No Real Scotsman just doesn't suit the argument.

Normally I would agree with you, but in this case what I stated is an actual personality trait of the type of people we are discussing.

In fact, it's at the core of what an alpha personality is.

Well, that was a very dishonest edit.

Someone calls you out on your obvious bull# and you quickly edit to another tweet.

In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein people of low ability suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their cognitive ability as greater than it is. Member has a bad case of this.
