he does not believe Trump is antisemitic or racist 

Disagree.

Trump's is both. He hates everyone, actually...only kisses up to those who agree with him, but lacks respect for anyone other than himself or, on the occasion, a dictator or two.

those investigations must not be producing the desired results.

LOL

Yeah, this will be predictable.

lawsuits from Mary Trump, Michael Cohen and Mr. Vindman were all thrown out of court in the same week.

so need some anti Trump from somewhere to fill the gaps here, I guess.

there is no way Mike Pence gets more than 5% no matter how much he cozies up to liberals and parrots their talking points to gain favor.

Mike, liberals arent going to vote for you. Or DeSantis or Pompeo or Christie or Haley. None of you.

Day 2 of "the dinner".

Actually that was last Friday, Japan time, so counting that Friday that’s Day 5 and still not a peep from the Donald about the demerits of anti-Semitism.

He told “friends” (news falafel: he hasn’t got any. Those are “acquaintances.”) that he doesn’t want to denounce a Holocaust denier who also said that Jews should be deported (and we won’t even get into what he said about backs and sexual assault on women) because it would cost him support.

So right and wrong don’t matter. Just power and his ability to use it for his own ends. Stupid Voldemort indeed.

And even if he were telling the truth about not knowing Nick (He isn’t’), now that he does know what Nick has said and done, why not call it out now? Oh sorry, I forgot. He’s a coward in addition to being a sociopath.

Proof? Hmm, thought so.

now that he does know what Nick has said and done, why not call it out now?

Because then the media would lambast him regardless and say “seeee!” So I personally would never apologize for something I knew nothing about

Oh sorry, I forgot. He’s a coward

Trump a coward??? ROFL!

I wouldnt be apologizing for a person I dont know just based on what the media says about him either.

How would you know if what the media says is true or not. Trump said they met and had dinner and everything seemed fine, then they left. Sounds reasonable enough to me.

Trump should definitely not apologize. It will be better for his presidential campaign if he doesn't.

AND…..

According to his own “truth” (stifles a snort) Ye came with 3 other people he claims he didn’t know. One was Nick, one worked for him in FL during the campaign (so not knowing her is a lie). Who was the 3rd person?

Turns out that was far FAR-right whacko Milo Y. You know the guy that talked about how it’s ok to have underaged sex with boys?

In other words an ACTUAL GROOMER. Been banned from everything and everywhere EXCEPT (of course) interning for MTG.

So to sum up…..

Don hosted Ye, who’s anti-semitism is well known (as well as his mental illness history) in spite of his remarks, a Holocaust denier “just happens” to tag along and is casually waved thru by the SECRET SERVICE without knowing who he is (Yeah, that didn’t happen), AND brings along a pedo widely banned pedophile who talks about grooming kids. (Seems like MTG should start with him, not give him an internship, but I digress)

And all of this is ok. None of it raises a flag at the time or merits a new culpa afterwards. This kind of thing “just happens”?

Seemingly only to Trump.

He won’t apologize and if he did, he wouldn’t mean it and would walk it back almost immediately just like the access Hollywood tape.

This is who he is. He’s willing to tolerate the worst of humanity if it strikes his fragile ego or if he can use them for an advantage.

The man is a sociopath and a stupid one at that.

Oh sorry, I forgot. He’s a coward 

Trump a coward??? ROFL!

Oh he’s absolutely a coward. Like the time he mocked the Eagle. It squared back he he zinged away.

The time he got scared of the unarmed man in the crowd and ran off stage cringing beside his body guards.

The MANY times he has fired people on Twitter because he is afraid to do so in person.

Like all bullies, deep down he is a very insecure person and he emotes that insecurity in a combination of bluster and cowardice.

He’s absolutely a coward and all America’s adversaries know it. Mini-me sure knows.

I am still not clear how you know all the details about all these people no one else has ever heard of.

-5 ( +0 / -5 )

regardless, I am not responsible for the personal views/ life history of people that a friend brings to my house for dinner.

So you said 3 people came with Ye, is that person's name being saved for Day 6 or 7 of "the dinner"?

Now this Adolf guy, it's reported that he has said some bad things. And then there are his own speeches for witch there are movies. But that is all the Media, so pfff.

Besides, "this guy gets me."

Oh yeah, go with THAT. That is a winning argument.

So he has to know every single person his team hires? Hmmmm…going in a bit too deep there guy….

Turns out that was far FAR-right whacko Milo Y. You know the guy that talked about how it’s ok to have underaged sex with boys? 

I’m sorry, we won’t go into the party that I love movie that has more of It’s share of hired questionable sexual binary people.

In other words an ACTUAL GROOMER.

Like in CRT….that’s hitting the Dems in the back of the head and rightfully so?

Don hosted Ye, who’s anti-semitism is well known (as well as his mental illness history) in spite of his remarks, a Holocaust denier “just happens”

Were you also just as outraged when Sharpton said those vile things about whites and Jews? 

Seemingly only to Trump. 

Happens to Dems to, but their backed media support and the WH as well as social media won’t let you talk about it, why?

He won’t apologize

Like I said, he shouldn’t, especially if he didn’t know.

This is who he is.

A former Democrat who knows the game of never to appease your enemies or capitulate.

And finally,

Let's assume that Trump is telling the truth (He isn't). He knew NOTHING about Ye, Nick or Milo (even though he claims to be a very stable genius with the world's greatest memories). He was COMPLETELY in the dark about all of it '(Sure, go with that, Don).

Wouldn't that make him an incompetent buffoon incapable of facing very pressing issues facing the Republic?

Wouldn't that make him, dare I say, a fool? An uneducated moron? Perhaps a rube?

I think it would.

Now to be fair, it's only mutually exclusive in this thought exercise.

In reality, Trump is both a lying sociopath AND an incompetent buffoon who is incapable of dealing with issues facing the Republic.

I am still not clear how you know all the details about all these people no one else has ever heard of.

Anyone who has been paying attention the last six or eight years knows exactly who these people are and their world view. Ye was only in the news last week for his anti-semitism so no excuses there. He should have been shown the door with his friends before he ever plopped his backside into a chair. Funny but I am not a former President of ther US but am fully aware of who all of them are and none would have made it across the threshold of my home. Tired of everyone finding excuses for the inexcusable.

Oh he’s absolutely a coward.

Naw, and that’s why the left and some on the right hate this man, he doesn’t back down.  

The time he got scared of the unarmed man in the crowd and ran off stage cringing beside his body guards. 

yeah, no idea that the man was armed or unarmed, I’m a big guy and I probably would’ve done the same

The MANY times he has fired people on Twitter because he is afraid to do so in person. 

Musk just fired people by Twitter, a lot of people do it, it’s called convenience, this is the new world we live in, this is the world you leftist wanted.

Like all bullies, deep down he is a very insecure person and he emotes that insecurity in a combination of bluster and cowardice. 

Democrats?

He’s absolutely a coward and all America’s adversaries know it.

if they were in the true, then he wouldn’t have half of the country following him, and Dems wouldn’t think he’s a thread.

So now we supposedly have a Black antisemite bringing a white supremacist and a Jewish guy to dinner.

I know, right? The joke writes itself!

"A black anti-semite, a White Nationalist Holocaust denier and a pedo-groomer walk into a bar....."

If you made it up, people wouldn't believe it because it is so bat-feces crazy.

And instead of a punchline, Donald ACTUALLY has dinner off the menu (which required preparation) with them.

Cymbal crash, rim shot! Tip your waitresses!

Pence is worse than Trump,he profess to be an Christian,but lie in the face for political reasons

1 ( +1 / -0 )

 Republicans will not be elected the President for 100 years

Oh, I doubt that, especially in the financial state this admin has put the country in, we already got the House that means, they don't trust the Dems with their money, not a good sign for them going into 2024

Oh.my.god! why didn’t you just say they had an “off the menu”’dinner in the home of a billionaire? It required preparation, you say?

that just totally changed everything. /s
