Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized “like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby” for his remark that “all lives matter,” Donald Trump said in an excerpt of a new interview aired Friday on Fox News.

In an interview with Jeanine Pirro for her program “Justice” set to air Saturday night, Trump said that the former Maryland governor did not need to say he was sorry.

Well, can't disagree with Trump on this one. He's exactly right. LOL.

Actually he did need to say he was sorry. Its not weak to admit you are wrong.

Whats weak is knowing you are wrong and purposefully continuing a false narrative as Jeb Bush and Mike Huckabee are doing on the same subject.

The only thing any politician should do with the BLM movement is ignore it.

You dont have to agree or disagree with the black lives matter movement to understand the meaning behind the term.


Jeb Bush, Martin O'Malley, and Mike Huckabee all attacked the term falsely, O'Malley was the only one with guts to admit he was wrong in how he described the term and admitted as much.


Now, if Jeb Bush or Mike Huckabee want to claim they were naive to the meaning of the term and simply defined it by what they were told from conservatives, i would be fine with that as long as they admitted such and said they have never spoke to anyone in the movement about its meaning.

But if they have spoke to people within the movement, then they are both lying in their responses and are pandering to a racist segment with in the conservative movement and that is weak.

how can you defend such actions ?


P.S. Im not mentioning Trump in this because all I have heard trump say is that he wouldnt let them take the Mic from him, and I have no problem with that logic. He has ever right to say that. And in the OP, he is obviously oblivious to what the saying means and has said he has never been affiliated with anyone in the movement.

So believing that all lives matter is wrong?

Does saying that all lives matter somehow invalidate that black lives matter? Are blacks not included in "all"?

Looking at Omalley's history in Maryland, I don't think I want to see him as POTUS.

Nope, Black lives matter already implies that all lives matter, but simply that some believe that black lives are valued less by society than white ones.

It does, its a way of shouting over someone instead of having a discussion on the actual problem of the world.

This cartoon, however simplistic, explains it .

The mistake with this is how people CHOOSE to interpret it.

If a person says "all lives matter", to get upset means that your are choosing to make assumptions about what secretly meant.

There is no evidence supporting the notion that O'Malley believed that blacks matter less. He was a victim of a dishonest and immoral technique with word play.

To correct Trump....O'Malley is a bawling liberal fetus with a full diaper. He was governor of this blue hell-hole.
