If proving hypocrisy is the point of an argument, it’s valid. Used as a rebuttal, it isn’t. It’s perfectly fine to contrast the inconsistent and double standards of someone, or their hypocrisy, but to do so to avoid an argument is fallacious.

Whataboutism is another term for the tu quoque fallacy. Proving hypocrisy is one thing, but not entirely valid when used as to refute another point, and better served if their initial point is refuted first.

Graham called Mexico a hellhole, then is appalled that trump said s-hole.



People forget Trump thought the White House was a dump.

Remember his TV interview, done in his fabulously decorated suite, when the TV interviewer asked him how he would take that "dumbing down" moving from his rich accommodations into the White House?

Trump was simply expressing his view from a billionaire's perspective, accustomed to being surrounded by the trappings of wealth, gold this and diamond that, when he used the term "s*hole". Remember, Trump once drove around with his car fitted with "gold plated" rims. Like the Shah of Iran who had solid gold toilets installed in his private ariplane, these rich guys have a completely different "standard" of living and life.

Since we don't see people in Haiti sitting on gold toilets, it's a "s*hole" to people like Trump.

That's all this is. Not a racist thing, it's a class/wealth thing.

What about Trump saying he was going to get rid of the debt, and he had a plan, a very, very good plan. Guess that is along the lines of his very, very, very good healthcare where all are covered and get to pick their own Dr's.




Tell us your proposal to make America Great Again.

I'm all ears, I'd love to hear your take on how you'd run a nation.

It's super simple easy peasy, right?
