So you are saying we get to enjoy these salty libtard tears for at least 4 years say it isn't so, we get to enjoy these lapses from reality. Just to top it off they get to prove how incredibly stupid they really are. PS popcorn and a tear jar please.


You know, the whole "liberal tears" thing really loses whatever meaning you think it had given that the president has done nothing but insufferably cry and whine like a child since his inauguration. If you need a tear jar, perhaps you should stop by the White House.

yeah . . . it does feel a lot like a deliberate pr move on behalf of trump supporters honestly. but even if i look at it in the least cynical way possible, it's just a well-intentioned but kind of stupid guy who seems to have spent his life in a white conservative bubble and doesn't understand or care about the reality that exists outside of it

i'm not saying that what he did was somehow wrong. i just don't like the idea here that a trump supporter doing something nice should mean "maybe they're all actually good people with valid opinions and we should turn a blind eye to the fuckload of bad stuff they're directly responsible for"

... *cringe*

Edit: no wait it was probably a bribe to get that [words deleted by mod, as likely to be found offensive and context misunderstood] woman to vote Trump next time!/s


Since my original reply was deleted here we go again. No true "southern gentlemen" would use the offensive words you originally included. We are in the the midst of the far-right "bless your heart" racism phase. Only the 1% that are truly ignorant would use the words you did. The rest would say something like "bless that black girls heart, I truly did think she'd need the $450 to feed her 18 children, after all they don't have a father." Now, that is just a reply in the context of you misinterpreting my post.. If you actually read my initial statement, nowhere in it did I imply the man was racist.

Is that acceptable mods? Apparently he is allowed to be vague in regards to context but I am not.

So lets start "has spent his life in a white conservative bubble" way to marginalize a group already, just cause of race and political ideology +2 since y'know this is so wrong to apparently be white, or have any beliefs. Before you even actually respond think hard if someone said the same thing about any OTHER group, you'd be called out a racist so should I call YOU out on this I feel its only fair as it is discrimination to marginalize ANY group for ANY reason.

So now lets look at how "good people are" since y'know you imply anyone that is against Trump apparently is "good." We'll ignore the violent riot that was at the heart of our capitol that, attacked police, destroyed property, set fires, and attacked opposing view points. If you honestly feel that is what constitutes good, then you need to gain a new comprehension of what good is. Because lets be honest we can just ignore all the "Good" aspects of the opposing vote and say "Look at how they all riot they are destroying the city and attacking the police!" Paints a great picture right? Didn't think so.

Suure you can say "Oh well he wants to stop refugees" or "he hates mexicans" but lets be honest, at the end of the day NONE of that has actually destroyed property, psychically attacked people, and costed the US in hundreds of man hours for police to cease violence and destruction. At the end of the day, all you got with this "Oh well this is what he said on Twitter, News, Etc" but he has not actually DONE anything to anyone. We can find videos for days showing Trump supporters getting set on fire, physically attacked, property damaged, riots, and so on. You can't find the inverse.

So before you paint the "Oh Trump supporters are ignorant and hate everyone" be sure to not ignore the sheer lack of tolerance or well any degree of human decency that has been displayed by the opposing views.

Is nobody calling you a racist fascist bigot enabling you to use your strawmans? Just pretend like they are despite that clearly not being the case. Brilliant. You sure showed those imaginary people.

My daughter (10 years old) asked me last night if the press is bullying the new President. She than asked me - if she did what the press is doing to the President to another student - if she would get in trouble. I told I don't know? She has a point...Maybe that behavior is OK now?

Anyone see article about the Saturday Night Live writer that got suspended for going after President Trump's 10 year old. Maybe a line was crossed...interesting it was women? Maybe just maybe this is getting out of hand? I'm starting to get sick of it? I also remember a female reporter making comments about The President's son during election night saying he looked board, etc....hmmm 10 year old kid 1:00 AM. My daughter would of been out like light? Liked what Clinton's daughter did to support...

Anyway not racist - I just didn't trust her.....I still don't (I watched her email testimony).

I don't trust the media anymore...I now watch the raw footage and read the documents instead of having someone interpret it (like the Russian election Intel document) and I definitely don't trust polls anymore (guess that is forced critical thinking and forced informed opinion - takes time though).

Popular vote in CA Clinton - 8.7 mil Trump - 4.4 mil / IL C- 3.0 mil T - 2.1mil / NY C- 4.5 mil T-2.8 mil
- This is making me think that if we went popular vote that California and maybe a few of our major cities could control the vote every time - http://cookpolitical.com/story/10174

where did i suggest being white was a bad thing? i said that he lives in a "white conservative bubble" - as in he only listens to other white people, and maybe one or two token minority friends who happen to share his views. do you not think that's kind of a narrow-minded way to live, and a bad way to form opinions about how the government of a large and diverse country should work? or do you think race has absolutely no effect on one's life experiences in america? i'm saying that he should have some self-awareness and empathy, and try actually listening to others instead of just assuming white people always know what's best for everyone


So now lets look at how "good people are" since y'know you imply anyone that is against Trump apparently is "good."

i didn't imply that anywhere but okay, keep putting words in my mouth if that's the only way you can argue. bad people will exist in any side of a political issue, that's just common fucking sense. bad behavior on one side does not invalidate their points and automatically make the other side correct

Oh boy, this thread turned to crap. Can't we just admit it is a nice gesture?

*I actually don't blame you Lime, he was interviewed on sharing his reasons, so it isn't like you're pulling it out of your ass.

The man supports Trump believing that it is in the best interest of everyone in the country, despite differences in opinion. I do not think that he is "evil" for supporting his presidency but I do think that he is misled and will soon enough feel the consequences of that error. I cannot claim to know what goes through the mind of someone who speaks like a progressive person but acts (votes) as a conservative nationalist. Cognitive dissonance?

It's everywhere.. I guess even on this forums

I think the media and most people online will start to have withdraw symptoms if they don't talk/post about Trump for 1 week.

it can be a challenge or something

What amuses (lack of a better word) me most about American politics is how everything is black and white to the most extreme degrees and how both groups then go the other side is worse then assert some label onto the opposition. It's kind of pathetic I could tell how this topic would turn out before I read it. The whole thing reminds me of the UK leaving the EU but even worse because of the hypocrisy of the whole we need to be together united as one when the people who are saying that are busy arguing about who is right and wrong. Some guy gave someone a large tip well that's nice for that person/employees why does it need to be a huge issue and turn into generalizations based on his character no one knows the guy sure he could have been doing it more for himself but if attempting to drag someone or a group down because of their political views makes you feel consoled then I feel sorry for you. let them at least have a shot at things it hasn't even been a month and the world is ending a similar thing happened with the last guy and America was fine. Most of that post goes for both sides and I am aware the majority of people aren't acting like that it's just both minorities are very vocal.

Apparently, it is, and Trump is called a "crybaby" for standing up to the bullies. Funny, schoolyard bullies do the same thing, calling kids crybabies whenever they backtalk. In this day, we need to be prepared to talk back to people when they unfairly smear us.

I'm cynical of what appears to be "staged goodwill," regardless of the source, mind you; however, a number of the responses to it, on both CR and elsewhere, highlight a concerning problem with US politics. Well, politics as a whole, really; oversimplification, tribalism, fanaticism, alarmism, shoehorning, scapegoating, and whatnot (primarily synonyms). It's interesting that, despite the popularity of media that put significant focus upon on the faults of such behavior and their use in manipulation, such as the Mockingjay series and Game of Thrones, it is quite common. The fact that it's felt that Trump supporters even need to "prove" that they possess common, positive human traits is telling.

trump is (allegedly) an adult, who continues to antagonize and insult the media over trivial things. how do you even make this comparison without stopping to cringe at the words you're typing?

stating facts that a fragile narcissist doesn't like does not make you a bully. if trump gets offended by anything that doesn't paint him in a positive light, that's his problem and only suggests that he doesn't have the maturity to run a country
