The world knows the rules The Donald plays by. Only the king is permitted to insult, demean and mock people. Narcissists cannot tolerate being treated in the manner which they themselves treat others. Baffling to me are all the personally insulted followers...do they see themselves as an extension of the leader?
1) The left loved and promoted Donald Trump for his attacks before he jumped into the 2016 campaign.

2) The left has a long history of shameful name calling, but now wants to behave as if they are the party of unity and peace. I posted a long history of shameful Dem political attacks on account of race, religion, etc., over the decades only recently. Happy to post it again for you to see.

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.







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.
How about just "fat" then?

Trump looks fine to me.

Whupping up on crazed loons on the left on a daily basis.

you did leave out what Rosie said that instigated Trump's comments.

it is hard to make Rosie out as some kind of innocent victim in this.

You're absolutely right. Rosie started it all. And as a general rule, Trump doesn't start these things. But he sure as hell doesn't just sit back and take it. No, he will savagely strike back. While sometimes I'd wish he'd tone it down, I'm glad that he is willing to fight back all the same.

We need to be better than the president and not resort to childish name calling. And by we, I mean everyone including some guy who is probably going to drop out of the 2020 race in a month or two. It's embarrassing when people of political power do this no matter what letter they have beside their name.
