Not sure how old they are right now, but they will be adults eventually. I want to see what happens when someone gets in their face and starts yelling about all the dead in Syria killed by arms that Obama provided to isis backed rebels. Pretty sure he would turn up dead somewhere. lol


When they are adults, Obama will not be in office and they will not be integral to his administration in said office. Nor will they be using said office to further their own business empire in flagrant disregard for said office. You simply can't make this equation because Ivanka is a public figure and a valid target of criticism in conjunction with her father's administration. Obama's daughters are not and never will be. Unless, again, Obama serves approximately 3-4 more terms. -.-

Also its rather unlikely anyone from Syria would ever do that as they're mainly being ground under the heel of Assad and Russia not the rebels.

Actually they do. Just depends what colour you are and what language the conversation is in.

Lol. You make me laugh today. Everybody is a victim except the actual victim.

Yeah, no one ever said anything about Obama's kids. <cough> =p

Also, neither of Obama's kids are a 35 year old business mogul using her father's position to further her business interests abroad in flagrant disregard for the integrity of the office while playing a key role in his administration. So that is not even remotely a valid scenario and never will be unless you guys suddenly changed the rules on term limits.



I don't know. Considering Trump's ten year-old kid, Barron, is already having to deal with his name being dragged through the mud, Obama's girls being randomly attacked for their connection to Obama is plausible.

I remember after the ugly election of '88, we had a SNL sketch after GHW Bush won, with Dana Carvey's Bush-imitation saying, "We had enough campaign money left over after the election that we had to spend, we decided to do one more attack ad against the Democrats: 'Last Tuesday, America, you could have destroyed the country...'"
See, the Republicans were still doing Democratic attack ads after the election was over, that was the joke, hehehehehh.

Nowadays, since the election is over, and the Trump fans, um, won, I guess, there's no social division for the core supporters to pump themselves into a mob frenzy with anymore except to do exactly what the SNL sketch was parodying:
Still attack their rivals AFTER the election is already over: "Yeah, you probably voted for Hillary, 'cause you're against us!"
(Except with the added personal frustration of "Geez, c'mon, why won't you guys admit that we rule the world now, you too stupid 'r something?")

His children are just as involved in this shit as he is and Ivanka especially is involved in the administration. To a questionably legal if not straight up corrupt degree.



oh, I can just see you now, had Hillary won, saying the same thing about Chelsea,

Those poor children.

I wonder who they will grow up to be?

According to Marc Scheff, the man pictured sitting in front of Ivanka with his son, the heckler did not address Ivanka directly. In a Facebook post, which he later confirmed by phone, Scheff explains the man noticed Ivanka, said “Oh my god. This is a nightmare,” and started “visibly shaking.”

Scheff says it appeared that airline security made the call to remove the passenger and notes Ivanka said something along the lines of, “I don’t want to make this a thing.”


Sounds like its getting somewhat sensationalized. The guy wasn't yelling at her and Ivanka didn't want to make a big deal out of it.

Except I called the guy an ass as well. At no point did I say it was okay to start randomly yelling at people on a plane. I was kicking holes in your usual partisan equivalency crap. Which you have now quietly dropped in favour of this remark. As your usual go to.

They already have been. Which is what I was getting at earlier. Even Fuckabee has weighed in on them and Obama's parenting.

Kids should be left out of it. Barron included.

Actually, I would if Chelsea was in the same position as Ivanka. Some of us aren't blind to reason by hyper-partisanship.

It just comes across like you are making excuses for his behavior and suggesting that someone deserves to be treated that way. Nobody deserves to be yelled at by a strange lunatic. I was just pointing out the this all happened in front of her children which added another layer of scum to his actions.

New York Post (mainstream)
Gateway Pundit (strong right bias)
Fox31 Denver Website (mainstream left)

---------------------------------------------

There is a bit of a disconnect as to what's portrayed by different wings of the media; admittedly, I don't see many strong-left sites bothering with reporting on this (just yet, at least). Regardless of how extreme the insults were, it was uncalled for. On the other hand, those who mentioned something like "Just waiting for the reaction if this were Obama's children" - this has happened, quite a few times.

Just like Trump, Obama has faced a lot of negativity during his first term as POTUS. His kids were not under as much scrutiny (because they weren't involved in the administration at all, but this is speaking of Trump's own, adult children - which these are his stepchildren [I could be wrong?]). Obama's children have been insulted on several topics, from their fashion to their father's policies to the school they were going to at the time. It sucks but this kind of stuff happens when you're related to the POTUS. Trump and his children will be no different.

I don't support or condone of these kinds of activities. It's trivial and asinine to insult a person's parents through the child. The child doesn't have any control over their parents' profession or status in the world - they're just coping with whatever is thrown at them. This kind of crap only makes it more difficult to grow up "normally" while under these kinds of conditions (position, celebrity status, and so forth).

The fact that he happened to vote for the OTHER CANDIDATE a month ago, however, not only seems to be the chief aspect played up in the partisan headlines, but explaining his behavior as well....What was that about "Making excuses"?

Oh another tread about political crap. Come on guys, don't force me to make up posts, just so we can have the forums clean of your obsession with this shit.

Well since he mentioned it in his political rant, it must have been important to him. Why not include it in the headline?

Funny how the dailymail headline mentions the guy's husband as a Hillary supporter, and then never mentions Hillary again in the rest of the article. Just gotta work a partisan jab in somewhere I guess.

Plane rides are miserable enough without someone going out of their way being a douche, nevermind doing so directly to children.

Sorry, did we force you to click on this topic? The actual forum is Here. It's not that short list on the main page. If I was in charge of CR, General Discussion would not even be listed on the main page. Just increase the size of the lists of Anime and Manga forums. Require people have to take the extra step of going to the forum page first to access GD. The topic headlines really have no need to be listed on the main page, and that would eliminate most of the problems here.

This will be the first change I make once I hit the lottery and buy Chrunchyroll.
