U.S. President Donald Trump slammed

Trump's handlers know there's nothing positive they can say about their Trump without telling even bigger lies, which even those in Trump's cult of personality must be starting to disbelieve. Instead they're relying on the tactic of despots before him: attack and give their followers red meat to keep them angry.

Trump is continuing to further divide the country along class and ethnic lines. While millions of Americans struggle to put food on their table. But Trump, like despots before him, doesn't care. He and his family continue to get fatter.

Don't worry, Donald. You've done more failing of America in just 3 1/2 short years than Biden's done in 50! In fact, at the rate you're going, you're going to do more failing than all the previous Presidencies, put together!

5 ( +7 / -2 )

This response is predictable, if not inevitable.

The historic, may I suggest unprecedented, to coin a phrase, four-day Democratic National Convention, to confirm Joe Biden Democratic nomination for President and Kamala Harris as vice-presidential running mate, could or should have sparked an inspired resurgence, a peek into where Joe Biden and Kamala Harris stand on key issues.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, should have taken the initiative, focused on the future, given a insight to an America that embraces inclusion.  

An example would have been Joe Biden and Kamala Harris approach to tackling the coronavirus pandemic, a patently obvious challenge facing the US/next President.

A delve into the forthcoming Biden $2tn investment into so-called climate emergency green energy policies.

How these policies would transform into sustainable manufacturing those jobs. And essentially the financing, a tad opaque at present  

The $400bn pledge to enforce “buy American”, and a colossal $300bn investment in quote: federal government to invest US-made materials, services, research and technology.

Most importantly the golden opportunity for the next generation, progressive wing, future leadership to step up and shine a light on their vision of the future.

However, this was not to be.

Instead the electorate were subjected to a succession of the stale old guard ranting and raving. Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama to name but a few descending into a solemn pit of fear and loathing.

Invoking at one point the nightmarish phantom specter/political equivalent of a democratic end of days.

President Donald Trump, portrayed as a caricature of the Testament of Solomon Prince of Demons, or the modern day fall of Lucifer.

Then finally, having to endure Billie Eilish sanctimonious drivel “Vote like our lives depend on it”.

Clearly, the power that be, decided to lock the party’s new progressive 'Squad' in the cellar.

Don’t want the likes of Rashida Tlaib, Cori Bush, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley frightening the horses

Dont forget that weird and creepy musical highlight with steven stills and that other guy.

 a "half century of Joe Biden failing America," 

And the Democrats still nominated the feeble old corrupt man. Incredible.

Joe Biden, politically is a likable veteran uncle/grandfather to the state.

A Guy that deserves to be spending afternoons head under a newspaper enjoying a comfortable reclining chair for seniors.

Joe is not in any sense a Clint Eastwood directorial portrayal of Joe Kidd, or a Gung-ho Chuck Norris, nor a James Woods, who stated on twitter in 2019, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is 'The Most Dangerous Person in America Right Now'.

Joe is the “Spindle Back Rattan Wicker”, a  Politician that is easily lead, and subsequently found wanting.....

Bernie Sanders to Joe Biden.

"In 2002, when the Congress was debating whether or not we go into a war in Iraq, invade Iraq, I got up on the floor of the House and I said that would be a disaster; it would lead to unprecedented levels of chaos in the region. And I not only voted against the war, I helped lead the effort against the war,"

A retort that stunned Joe Biden, as he stumbled incoherently to explain his vote in favor of the war as a US senator.

It is disingenuous to portray Joe as slow, sleepy or senile.

Joe is Joe.

In reality, Joe wants quiet life.

A serene peaceful easy Joe. Unfortunately, Joe time has come and gone.

What is left for Joe, is a potential nervous breakdown.

All the old hits, China, Mexico, our way of life gosh darn it! I don’t think the mud will stick so well this time though.

this speech is going to be a total disaster, unless it is pre-recorded and edited.

Trump is president now because of Obama and Biden's screw-ups.

Trump's handlers know there's nothing positive they can say about their Trump

They can and they do, it's just the mostly msm doesn't want to report on it, but with over 289 accomplishments they have more than enough to talk about.

without telling even bigger lies, which even those in Trump's cult of personality must be starting to disbelieve. Instead they're relying on the tactic of despots before him: attack and give their followers red meat to keep them angry.

Lies? Wonder when Biden and Harris will give unscripted and hard hitting interviews to the media? Wonder if reporters will be allowed to ask Kamala how she started in politics or the exact details about how Joe met his wife.

Trump is continuing to further divide the country

No, he's not. Trump didn't tell Antifa or BLM to destroy cities, create a cancel culture and riot and loot and dismantle our statues and tear down our culture as a nation and defund the police, attacking people, State leaders allowing total anarchy and pushing one group think conformity pushing a Marxist agenda, that's dividing the country and who makes bank? Dems and their surrogates.

Sadly, yes.

It’s strange reading people claiming Biden has mental health issues when those people scream every time someone says that about Trump. They both clearly have age-related health issues, so why not so state instead of trying to attack one instead of the other?

Liberals want Trump to condemn these people and yet, liberals and Democrats are absolutely silent when it comes to condemning radicals on their side, when cops are threatened, when Home owners are threatened, when lawlessness and destruction are overrunning the country and people being shot and killed and the silence from Democrats is deafening.

lmao you still can't say "Trump was wrong to support a would-be assassin".

lmao you still can't say "Trump was wrong to support a would-be assassin".

Trump didn't say, he outright supports them.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Trump didn't say, he outright supports them.

He called them patriots and was happy to have their support. Just like the "fine people" he praised at the Nazi rally in Charlottesville.

I note you STILL refuse to condemn a would-be assassin, because Trump likes them. It's alright, Trump doesn't care about you, he's not going to find your posts, you can say it.

Biden gives me creepy vibes. It's funny there are people who brainwashed themselves into believing that he's a better candidate.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

He called them patriots and was happy to have their support.

BLM are considered patriots and Dems are proud to support them, Antifa....a bit more cloudy...

Just like the "fine people" he praised at the Nazi rally in Charlottesville.

Taken out of context, why liberals keep doing that?

He said:  "You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. ... I saw the same pictures as you did....

I note you STILL refuse to condemn a would-be assassin,

Will liberals condemn radicals they support?

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Taken out of context, why liberals keep doing that?

It isn't. Saying you had "very fine people on both sides", when one side is a bunch of Nazis, is saying Nazis are very fine people. It's that simple.

Will liberals condemn radicals they support?

Oh my God. Can you stop thinking about liberals under your bed for six seconds and say, unambiguously, that Trump is wrong to praise a would-be assassin as a patriot who he is proud of?

4 ( +4 / -0 )

"You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides. ... I saw the same pictures as you did.... “

One side was neoNazis, which means Trump thought some neoNazis were “very fine people.”

"He (Joe Biden) abandoned Pennsylvania. He abandoned Scranton . . . Oh! And don't buy your tires from Goodyear anymore! You should abandon this old American company!"

It isn't. Saying you had "very fine people on both sides", when one side is a bunch of Nazis, is saying Nazis are very fine people. It's that simple.

But he didn't say that, if you make that kind of looney argument then lawyers should have a cake walk in winning case after case after case.

Oh my God. Can you stop thinking about liberals

When liberals can stop thinking about conservatives, sure.

It just boggles the mind that a pathological liar like Trump even has any followers who believe anything that comes out of his mouth. Trump is the first U.S. President I've witnessed who belittles and attacks (or even fires) anyone who disagrees with what he says, places blame at anyone else, but himself for any failures, and even says stuff like "It is what it is" as a response to the rising number of deaths due to COVID-19. He already is whining that if he loses this election, it's because it was rigged. Who in their right mind says stuff like that?

It's so telling that all he can do as a strategy to try and win this election, is to belittle and attack his opposition using 'fake news' as facts. Trump is okay with accusing others of presenting fake news, but he doesn't mind dishing it out himself. Trump and his followers are the type that say "Do as I say, but not as I do". I miss a President who will actually lead by example; not a con artist who has gone through multiple bankruptcies and can barely speak English.

You literally just quoted him as saying that.

He didn’t say it directly, but he implied it by saying, “were very fine people, on both sides.” When one side is composed completely of neo-Nazis, that statement means some neo-Nazis are very fine people. Rationale adults familiar with logic can’t deny this.

Joe Biden is lying about Charlottesville again.

Fact check from CNN's Jake Tapper:

"Elsewhere in those remarks the President did condemn neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

"So he’s not saying that the neo-Nazis and white supremacists are very fine people”

You literally just quoted him as saying that.

No, because I can't change the quote and spoken words of the man, he called out both sides and the liberals focus on the Nazi side only which has always been a pathetic and feeble attempt at dishonesty.

No, because I can't change the quote and spoken words of the man

I know you can’t. You quoted him as saying that there were “very fine people on both sides”. One side was Nazis. He thought Nazis were very fine people. You quoted him. You can’t change the quote, as you say, so don’t deny that he said it.

Blacklabel

Joe Biden is lying about Charlottesville again.

If that is true, that is just disgusting. Of all the various hoaxes spread by the "mainstream" media and political hacks, the "fine people" hoax is the most nauseating one. If Biden's handlers feed him that one, that are ´terrible people.

I read the Nazis were delighted with Trump’s response. They usually get unequivocal condemnation.

They clearly saw something to like in Trump’s rather careful ‘condemnation‘.

He felt it necessary to mention this hoax again in his acceptance speech while totally avoiding China, policing and the "peaceful protesters" in our streets.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

I know you can’t.

I wasn't trying

You quoted him as saying that there were “very fine people on both sides”. One side was Nazis. He thought Nazis were very fine people.

And the other for Antifa, exactly

I read the Nazis were delighted with Trump’s response.

As were the Antifa that claimed victory despite of their destructive behavior.

Biden misquoted the Declaration of Independence by adding words that arent there.

Kind of like yesterday when Dems subtracted words from the Pledge of Allegiance.

Cant trust a word these people say, even when quoting from well known documents. They just say whatever fits the narrative of the moment.

So what did I learn in 4 days? Dems hate Trump, Dems will lie and claim that voters who voted for Trump as Republicans are actually Democrats all along.

Biden is a caring guy who can very angrily read from a teleprompter many dark and divisive comments, he is not Trump, and they cant even find 15 unique streams of supporters to fill a screen to clap at the end of speeches.

You can't trust the lieberal media. You can only trust... let me see here... some internet radio show that has screenshots of a text of an Excel document where someone has written in their speculative thoughts. Now that's real journalism.

Of course, if any of our Trump supporting posters are keen to get out of their bubble, may I recommend the following video:
