"F-bomb" is foul language. You just broke your own rules on non usage.

F-bomb isnt profanity. I am not saying we should encourage it, but you cant deny that you frequently use it yourself.

How come when some black kids from the hood can't say two sentences without cursing, they're ghetto, but when Trump throws it out there its "telling it like it is". Does he talk like that to his wealthy friends or just to us common peons?

Your so blinded by your opinions you cant even see your blatant hypocrisy on this topic.

Carry on.
How did you get hypocrisy out of my reply above? I would never use the foul language Trump does and I'd never make fun of people with disabilities or a veteran who spent five years in a prison of war camp---just to name a few of the things I find disgusting about Trump. I wouldn't do these things because I don't think that way. There is no hypocrisy here. Saying what Trump thinks is not the problem; the issue is what he thinks and the fact that he's like a Neanderthal without a moral bone in is body. And he does NOT speak for me which is what that OP is suggesting---that he speaks for all of us.

If what Trump says is what is in YOUR "heart of hearts" it's pretty ugly in there. Thankfully, you do not speak for the whole country. As Bernie Sanders said in a forum today:

"As president of the United States I will do everything I can to stand up to the Donald Trumps of the world and their bigotry and their xenophobia and their desire to turn one American against another person."

Sanders vows to stand up to

For which he got a standing ovation.

He also is too much with the twitter.
These flaws are not disqualifying flaws, however.
I am a more issue/ideology voter. We need something different.
This is exactly how I feel. He didn't need to repeat that woman's use of the P-word (one of my least favorite words on the planet--grosses me out every time) at the rally. I'm guessing he does it cause the crowd is with him on these things. He's not going to be using the P-word or dropping S-bombs in state of the union addresses.

There never has been and never will be a perfect candidate. I vote for whose policies will benefit the country the most. The president is never going to be my next door neighbor or have dinner with me. I'll take the rough language over bad policy or being a pathological liar.

A word or label that describes the thing that is profane is by its own definition profane itself.

Either the word **** is profane or it's not. Calling it an f-bomb does not change its meaning.

To believe otherwise is either ignorance or hypocrisy.

You mean like a hypocrite who would decry Chinese made goods as stealing American jobs but has a history of putting his name on Chinese made goods and profiting from that cheap labor?

That kind of hypocrite?
