Who cares about votes? The president is mentally ill. A mentally ill person is in charge of the country. This is a crisis.
Venezuela is in a crisis.

We are not in a crisis. You choose to put yourself in a self-imposed crisis.

Trump is not the first president with a lofty view of himself. He won't be the last. Get past it and make the best of your life. Don't let Trump ruin your day.

Amazing how even some Jewish people in this thread will even excuse the antiSemitism coming from Trump, but I guess human nature tends to trump all else when it comes to hearing only what we want to hear and hearing nothing else...

‘Shameful’: US Jews respond to Trump’s apparent use of antisemitic trope

Jonathan Greenblatt said Trump’s charges of ‘disloyalty’ have ‘long been used to attack Jews’ while J Street called remarks ‘dangerous’

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...isemitic-trope

You think? Just no end to see how some people simply don't care what is right or wrong-doing if the recognition of wrong-doing doesn't suit their cause, not what they want to hear, and as such..., what is the point of making any such distinctions or arguing about them?

Didn't Trump once said that black people loved him?

But Jews should accept the anti-Semitic behavior and history coming from the squad?

Interesting...

No.



I'm not sure why this is an either/or thing.

If they represented me and I was looking I might have some concern...as it stands they are lowly Reps and entitled to their opinions. I, as a Jew, may even share SOME of them....

But the POTUS ideally represents every decent American. See the difference?

He is paid and elected to do that. The Rep is not.

Funny he just was talking about how other presidents didn't take on China and referred to himself as "the chosen one" to take this problem on. Is there a pattern here?
This guy is very ill.

I hereby challenge Trump to a test against me.

Geography

I promise I will trounce him. He will beat me in the Art of the Con because I am one of those people who is not good at lying. Bad poker player.

I will also compare my lifetime ROI with his.....and my claim is to beat him by at least 1/2.

Like the Govinator and Reagan, his "beat" is acting. I cannot do that well.

That what I wrote? "Interesting" is right, and perhaps another example of reading only what we want to read?

In each and every one of these cases, what is important is to recognize what in fact is right or wrong, antisemetic or not antisemetic, and get the facts correct rather than use reason and rhetoric based solely on bias that clouds clear thinking in these respects.

Even more specifically and to the point, is Trump antiSemetic or not in your opinion? And why?

Have there not been enough threads about the squad already? Isn't this one about Trump instead?
