Rightfully so I might add. "not all religions are created equal" , some are much more ridiculous than others.

This really is non-responsive and avoids having to deal with what I said. You posited that "traditional political discourse" has until this election cycle treated religion with respect. That is egregiously incorrect.

This is such a trump move-

'Wondering' if something is true. So you 'can't get offended, I was just asking a question, not accusing you'.

Or

Prefacing your views with 'People are saying' so that if it goes awry, you can say 'it wasn't me, I'm just repeating what I've heard'

Hillary is snickering at all the shitstorm she has created while trying to squeeze political gravy out of these shills.
As disgusting as this stunt is it is very correctly calculated that majority will go with simple emotions instead of rational.

Of course he's allowed to ask stupid fucking questions. He doesn't get a free pass for it though.

If Trump wanted to raise legitimate questions, he could have done it without jamming his foot in his big dumb mouth. But he's apparently pathologically incapable of doing routine politics without going out of his way to attack people and be offensive while doing it. I'm sure it'll appeal to you dumbfuck Trump supporters, but the rest of us are wondering how in the hell this guy is supposed to represent our country to the world.

Are you describing a thought process of a castrated, liberal , male-mouse ...?

You know Obama's not running again, right?


Thing is, what about Trump has made you think that he's going to show good judgement? He says stupid fucking things, and he's never demonstrated any particular ability to master complex issues (or even care). How are we going to expect him to know if the US should intervene the next time a nascent terrorist organization pops up in a destabilized country (ie, ISIS taking over Fallujah)? Every President has some mistakes to point at after eight years in office, so pointing at Obama's doesn't really excuse Trump's very real capacity to make catastrophic errors based on what we've seen of him.

If that fails, just say it was sarcasm.

I am not disagreeing with what you are saying about Trump. I am not interested in dissecting his idiotic motives, they are boring and painfully obvious. However as good libertarian I will not impinge on your right to enjoy your analysis of his pronouncements.


P.S. Free pass, when did he get that ever? And why he should get a shitstorm for one obvious observation. I rather question more complex and disgusting motives of Hillary shills, since that is what bothersome to me much more than a simplistic reflexive Trump.

Many years ago, I saw a documentary that mentioned that one of Fox News's favorite rhetorical devices is to preface a statement that has limited factual support with "Some people say" or "Some people have said" to disclaim responsibility. "Some people have said that Hillary Clinton likes to eat puppies for breakfast. What's your view?"

Trump supporters have a brain derangement that causes them to think in memes. It's quite a serious condition.
