Thats what Im saying , a comedian who isn't in a minority group wouldn't risk their career by doing jokes on minorities!
because of the way society is now , anything considered risky isn't worth it!

Like you wouldn't see a white man do the equivalent of Dave Chappelle's "the 'n-word's " 50's milkman skit
or clayton bigsby kkk grand wizard skit , both of which are amazing racial comedy !

However there are white comedians who tackle race humour well ! Such as the late Ralphie May!

Blame Democrats on everything.
Democrats hate America.
Democrats and liberals are communists.
The enemy of the state.
Libtards are weak and lazy who refuse to work and want handouts.
Libbies want open borders.
Libs want MS-13 and embrace them.
Liberals hate cops and they jump in joy every time a cop gets killed.
Democrats get paid by drug cartels.
Democrats want illegals here so they can vote for them and we pay for them.
The entire media is fake news except Trump's mouthpiece Fox News.

I suppose it's because Trump likes to dish it out, rather than take it back.

I lot of loudmouthed bullies are like that.

The guy craves audience and attention in spades.

Surely we will find out if trump can take a joke or not , he will either take it and carry on as expected
or (if he really really really cant take a joke- go full Kim Jung Un) he will enact a new law banning any criticism of him
and any jokes of his administration will result in state re-education! (highly unlikley)

Will he moan about it like anyone for being made fun of on such a scale well aye !
he has every right to defend himself from these jokes and folk poking fun , but at the same time
you'd expect a little more decorum from a president or bigger man and not to engage in twitter beef over some jokes and just let the "haters hate"

well aye , met plenty of folk who can dish out verbal abuse , but as soon as you bring them down a peg , they spit the dummy!

That's the thing, if you're going to run your mouth all the time on twitter, expect to get folk to take the piss out of you !

No, they didn't. That isn't close to reality of the "why" Trump can't take jokes.. or criticism. Or why he can't give credit to anyone for anything, but has no problem taking credit for everything, even if marginally involved.

Why are so many of you so ignorant on the facts? Or perhaps you are being willfully ignorant of the truth.

You hear Democrat runner ups lika Kamala Harris say she wants to end ice, which is a good thing for ms13...
You hear beto say he wants to tear down walls. That's like open borders.
You really think newly granted u.s. citizens from central America lean towards Republican?
BLM who vote Democrat chant in the streets for the blood of cops.
Democrats and liberals are not communist, but clearly embrace socialism as stated by Sanders and aoc.

Scary that you think many of those things are fabricated when it comes directly out of the mouths of Democrats.

During the midterm BLM showed up in droves to vote blue.
LGBTQ showed up in droves for blue
Antifa showed up in droves for blue
Hollyweird showed up in droves
Illegal aliens, muslims and the media .

This is your new Democrat party. And should make any normal American run to the red.

The trick is to appreciate that whilst they are picking on you they are leaving some other poor bastard alone.

I ken the Muppet has some really small hands, but he really should have larger shoulders being a POTUS and all that jazz.

I mean if he does not wish fun to be poked in his direction, he really should not be so funny.

Take for example Harvey Weinstein. He said such great things about actresses, female directors, marched in Woman's March. Is that decent behavior?


If it was sincere and without pretense, sure it's decent behavior.

He's also behaved hideously. Bad people can do good things. Good people can do bad things.

This, in no way, explains what you meant by the "tweet and said" quote.


Ok. My point was that most criticisms of Trump's behavior largely revolve around what he said or tweeted. For instance, him calling Haiti a "sh*thole" (which is a fact), led to worldwide denunciations of him and his administration. But him commuting Alice Marie Johnson's sentance gets...what?


You're playing fast and loose with the word "fact". That is entirely an opinion, since descriptions such as sh*thole aren't rooted in any form of fact.

But I'll repeat myself again, just because someone does something good (pardoning Ms. Johnson), doesn't mean they can't also do bad things. Plenty of people prop him up for the good things. I've stated on several occasions that he's done some great things. But that doesn't mean that he isn't a giant @ss from time to time.

So, why can't I also say he's done and said some sh!^ty things? Why is being critical of Trump such a bad thing?


That's fair, but looking at any of indexes, whether they be of freedom, living standards, violence, GDP, economy, etc. Haiti falls low on all of them. There is massive unrest and uncertainty there right now. You could say it's not a sh*thole, but I'd have to question your motives for doing so.

If your criticisms are warranted, I fully support it. If they aren't, and are mob-derived, I'm going to criticize back. Why is being critical of you guys such a bad thing?


I still don't understand your tweet quote, but I'm just going to drop it since you're dancing around it. Bottom line, he tweets and says some very indecent stuff.

My motive is that it's a pretty crappy thing to say about someone's home, and pretty immature as well. A lot of people love it. The fact that the person who is supposed to represent our country said something so immature is ridiculous to me. Have some tact. Be kind to people who aren't as fortunate as us.

It isn't a bad thing at all, as long as the criticisms are warranted and aren't mob-derived. What's bad is blindly defending the POTUS for literally everything he does, without question. I'm not saying you personally do that, but ATS in general does, and it gets old. There are so many anti-Warren/anti-AOC/anti-Democrat threads on here, but when someone says anything remotely critical of POTUS (or conservatives in general) folks act like we just tried to punch their mother.

It is ok to call out people for their sh*t. No one is immune to that.


He said it in a private meeting. Yet you'll say nothing about the Democrat who ran and leaked a private conversation to the press for political reasons. Have you never swore or said anything untoward in private? Now imagine if someone ratted you out to the press. This is what I mean: you guys police Trump's tweets and speech, but then put on the blinders to actual behavior like the tattle tale who ratted on Trump.

It's the same with the "grab em by the p*ssy" remarks. These remarks were made in private over a decade ago. But the operatives paid to sift through Trump's conversations, leak them to the press in order to make him look bad, get away scott free. These remarks led to the biggest single-day protest in American history. I'll repeat that: no act of violence, injustice, tyranny led to the biggest single-day protest in American history. It was Trumps decades-old, private conversations. This is a glimpse of the priorities you guys are dealing in.



I was honestly thinking that was a public comment because another poster referred to it as a tweet, didn’t realize that it was said in a meeting. Regardless, I expect our leaders to have more tact than that. I mean, he was still in a meeting with government officials, it wasn’t like it was him and a buddy talking over a beer.

The guy who “ratted him out”, a US government meeting isn’t a “snitches get stitches” situation. Again, it’d be one thing if he said this to a friend over a beer and then the friend told the media. He was in a meeting, where he still needs to act presidential.
Was it nice of him? No. But I prefer people to have enough integrity to speak in public the same way they’d speak in private. If you say something bad enough that it needs to stay hidden, why say it?

The grab ‘em quote...there’s audio of him saying it, and what he’s describing doing is sexual assault. It doesn’t matter where or when he said it, that’s messed up.


No, he described a sexual act between two consenting adults, not assault. He did so in private and over a decade ago. But it’s no surprise you’d believe otherwise.

Because itdoesn’t matter what words Trump used in a private meeting, or decades ago in the past, because they only told you the ones they wanted you to know about, while the rest, including the context, you and I remain ignorant to.

What matters is that this little piece of political sabotage was used to make the president look bad, to cast doubt, to ignite the fantasies of all who ran with it. The term “useful idiots” come to mind. It had its desired effect.



You think what he was talking about was consensual sex? Then we have nothing more to discuss, as we're clearly speaking different languages.

They only told me the ones that matter? HE'S ON A FREAKING AUDIO RECORDING SAYING IT. The super scary left-wing media didn't tell me anything, I can listen to him actually saying it. Furthermore, he admitted to saying it!
Do you think that recording was doctored? If so, why did he admit to saying it, if it didn't actually happen? That's a strong case of denial right there.

Trump is fallible, he makes stupid mistakes. The fact that you can't admit that is very telling.

I don't care what the context was. Unless he was doing a private stand-up comedy routine and was completely joking, what he said was very wrong.

He's recorded saying it, and flat out said that he said it. He made himself look bad. No sabotage involved. If he were to just sack up, apologize, say he made a mistake a long time ago and that's he a different person now, it probably would've gone away much sooner. But no, it's just "locker room talk" and "every guy talks like that". I certainly don't. None of my friends do. If you and yours do, maybe you should rethink that.

I'll repeat myself. If he says something in private that's so bad that it needs to stay hidden, why say it in the first place?

I'm done with this conversation, as it's going nowhere.

Why the preference for Clooney? Because he wears noiicer clothes and speaks a little more eloquently?
Is that what Presidential is?
You sound like you want someone to play to emotions even if it is all fake over someone who will actually force positive change. If you get both it's a bonus.
I would contend the priority is policy and a nice to have is a statesman.



The clothes don't matter to me at all. What matters in that instance is the ability to professionally handle oneself when dealing with matters of international importance and upholding the policies of our country.

I don't value a play towards emotions, which happens to be exactly what Trump does. That's his whole game, he riles up his bases' emotions with tough talk of invasions and the like, even if it isn't true. Why else would he lie so much? To push emotions and to hide negative things about him. That's the exact opposite of the "straight shooter" most Trump supporters say they want.

I value someone who can handle country policy while still acting like a stand-up citizen, which is exactly what Trump has not shown himself to be able to do. Which is why I used Clooney as an example. Class through and through, while maintaining their cool when speaking about tough subjects, and being honest with the people.

To be clear, when I say "class", I don't mean "ooo look at him, he looks so good!" What I mean is, he has the ability to act like a calm, rational adult, in a multitude of circumstances. Trump doesn't. Or at the very least, he hasn't shown that he's capable of it.
-not shaking Merkel's hand
-sitting when everyone else is standing
-lying constantly
-playing up emotions
-trying to make fun of anyone who he thinks has slighted him
-etc
-etc

Long story short, he has thin skin. And repeatedly shows it. I expect more from a President.

Clooney doesn't have to be my example though, there are tons of examples. To clarify, I know they're not all from the US, I'm using the examples in terms of how I would prefer a president to act. With class and tact, some humor thrown in, and the ability to be tough when necessary while still being civil. I'm also focusing on celebrities just because more people know them than my usual examples.

Matt Damon. Emma Watson. Benedict Cumberbatch. Emily Blunt. Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Idris Elba. Jeff Bridges.

LOL .. no, it doesn't. And my post wasn't a protest, it's factual information. Trump IS thin-skinned, always has been. He lashes out at the merest hints of criticism. Trump brags all the time. Are you suggesting he doesn't? He knows more than his generals. He is smarter, more fit, mentally more stable, more brilliant on any topic that anyone brings up. He says it, repeatedly. And it's a laughable joke. He immediately retaliates against anyone who he thinks sleights him. From his own book.. it's how he operates.

Why do you think the only fake news sources are the ones that are critical of him? Because it's reality? Hell no.. that's not reality. ALL news sources exaggerate, and spin their story based on their agenda. All have "fake" news. But Trump only takes aim at the ones that are CRITICAL OF HIM. Because he literally can't take criticism without immediately taking the defensive.

I can't believe you folks are so delusional in your following your glorious leader, you are absolutely blind to his faults. It's awe-inducing and a real head-scratcher at the same time. How are such supposedly intelligent individuals so blind to reality?

When Trump does something I think is actually good for the country, I can admit it. And have done so on occasion. Because I can try to approach his actions with an unbiased eye. Why can't you do the same, and admit his faults? Do you really think he is that perfect? That smart? That brilliant.. that he should be immune from criticism?
