It really is such a lazy deflection, no thought process whatsoever.

We KNOW many on the left AUTOMATICALLY claim GUILTY when accusations are made of repubs BUT, don't hold their dems to to the same standard.

Why does the left ALWAYS WANT TO ignore HISTORY WHEN IT IS BAD FOR THEM BUT, HAVE no PROBLEM using history against repubs, like going back to when repubs were in grade school being "bullies", etc.?

Heck, we still hear about Reagan and W. Bush from many on the left but when we bring up obama and the clinton's who STILL appear in TODAY'S news and it is a no-no.

The word HYPOCRITE comes to mind.


If I were A dem I wouldn't want people talking about them either!

Evangelicals chafe at Trump’s blasphemy.

A Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator who represents many evangelicals got three phone calls from constituents complaining about Trump’s profanity after a recent rally.

Paul Hardesty didn’t pay much attention to President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Greenville, N.C., last month until a third concerned constituent rang his cellphone.

The residents of Hardesty’s district — he’s a Trump-supporting West Virginia state senator — were calling to complain that Trump was “using the Lord’s name in vain,” Hardesty recounted.

The third phone call is when I actually went and watched his speech because each of them sounded distraught,” Hardesty, who describes himself as a conservative Democrat, said.

Here’s what he would have seen: Trump crowing, “They'll be hit so goddamn hard,” while bragging about bombing Islamic State militants. And Trump recounting his warning to a wealthy businessman: “If you don't support me, you're going to be so goddamn poor.”

Trump has always been good when it comes to putting his foot in his mouth. Things like this could be his start of downward spiraling.
If it hasn't caused a downward spiral yet what makes you think it will? Most of us (99%) do not like his language or his attitude to be honest, but we will still support him as he is doing his best to fulfill his promises.

Except I am not now nor have I ever been a Dem. The word "assume" comes to mind.

At some point you would think those that voted for him would start to realize that he’s not the savior they believe him to be. Same with those who voted for Obama.

This doesn't surprise me in the least. A lot of Christians are hypocrites which is a big reason why I'm anti-religion.

It's because they know he's the worst president we've ever had so that's why they resort to deflection. It's all they got.

Some of them most likely do. They just won't admit to it as I said up there.

The dotard is the worst violator of everything Christianity supposedly stands for, and yet the god-fearing seem to still support him. With that goes not only the label of not being Christian at all, but worse yet, supporting a person who violates nearly every decent and moral behavior imaginable.


And now they want to complain because he takes the name of their god in vain?


Sorry, this is what you support. Deal with it.
The "I don't agree with your lifestyle but will treat you well as a person" or the "hate the sin but love the sinner" set-up can be tricky because you might be deemed what many would call homo-/bi-/transphobic. If conservatives are to adhere to the quoted points I mentioned, then perhaps liberals should not be so quick to use those -phobe cards.
