Is it really so impossible to have a presidential candidate who DOESN'T act like a child?


Reasonable and mature? Sure. He has zero traction or momentum, however.


In the alleged words of Bill Shakespeare: Tempt not a desperate man...

Is the President a total piece of garbage for calling Jerry Nadler "Fat Jerry", then, as well?

Who doesn't love Chinese take-out, though? Mmmmm.

It's wrong.

Always has been, always will be.

It is one concern I have that the Democrat candidates will feel the need to get down to Trump's level to run against him. I'm hoping they can elevate the level of debate but it is hard to stay out of the mud.


Couldn't rep you again, yet, but I fully agree with all of this.


Yang is a non-entity, anyway, which is why this won't get much coverage. Had it been Biden or Warren or Sanders or Harris, though....

Yang is an absolute embarrassment.

Seeing him cry like a baby instead of properly answering the question of gun violence, was one of the most cringe worthy moments of the year so far.

Yeah, shame on him for having a heart. I know you're not used to seeing that.

Yeah because Yang had the president's health interests at heart when he made his remarks

As for the truth (firstly calling someone a slob is not a statement based on truth but on opinion and, in this case, on partisan motivated opinion) being used to justify this crap, I merely ask anyone in here advocating that line whether they would go up to a random obese woman or obese man and call them fat slobs? By your logic, it's "the truth" and so should be excused. Smh.

Just more leftist hypocrisy. Another Dem using similar attacks that the left criticizes our president for. This is exactly why the left's hypocritical attacks fall on deaf ears when I and others hear them.

The president deserves it though. It's akin to how I don't believe in calling someone ugly unless they are actually ugly.

Well actually the dad bod is apparently in at least in Hollywood. It's obesity that people are criticizing.
Personally I don't care. I only pick on someone's appearance in a mean spirited way to people who don't deserve my respect.


But I do think we've become too PC. I used to watch a Youtube comedian that would tell some funny fat jokes as well as other topics that we probably can't joke about anymore.

That is the one that really baffles me. I mean if you were really good at comedy you would probably be okay to joke about a woman's period flow but the way he worded it was not right.

Wow a woman doing what women naturally are supposed to do. Imagine that.
Most of his jokes are mean spirited comments towards innocent people. You know he means every word because he can't stand any criticism towards him even though a lot of it is valid.

They did criticize Bush a lot and I didn't agree with it because I personally loved Bush as a person but if they were calling him dumb or something like that then I wouldn't really disagree. It was part of his charm. He was just a funny guy.

I don't like Rosie O Donnell so he can say whatever he wants about her.

If behavior is truly universally outrageous and condemnable, then I don't expect outrage only when a Republican or Donald Trump does or says it.

I didn't pay attention to politics that much (I should have probably) until Trump was a candidate. I do admit I misjudged McCain a bit but I didn't say anything really bad about him.

I don't agree with it but I can kinda see why they would feel positive about it. While I don't condone murder (I'm iffy about the death penalty) the thought has recently crossed my mind because I'm wondering if there is any way to escape him otherwise. I wouldn't be surprised if he got re-elected.
I was able to ignore him and not care before and then he forced me to pay attention to him due to what happened recently.
I would feel bad for Barron. I can tell he's a decent kid but it's hard to value someone as a human being when they're trying to make your life more of a struggle. Then you have to think about the mass shootings. Is it better to have countless people lose their lives than just one? I don't know if the mass shootings would stop or not..they might still be there but maybe they would be reduced if we had someone else. The fact that he speaks positively about someone who literally kills people who simply oppose him doesn't make it easy to value him either (I mean Putin is a fun character. He would make a great Bond villain and fun to joke about but I don't know if I'd want to know him in real life. Don't forget that he's buddy buddy with Kim Jung Un too)

I don't wish for that either really. I just want him to be out..whatever out is. In prison, reality show host ...I'll take it as long as he isn't in the White House.

We've already discussed why immigrants are beneficial dozens of times so I'm just going to ignore that part.
I don't know if college tuition should always be free but true loan forgiveness should be in effect. They could just absolve it automatically instead of having anyone pay for it.

No because I don't know if that random woman is actually a slob or not. I just know Trump is.

Andrew Yang Calls President Trump ...

That's in poor taste. I don't like it when anyone sinks to that level of diatribe, not that Trump would be innocent of such language himself.
