Trump displays his petty, vengeful streak once again.

The art of the deal.

“BYE-BYE”: TRUMP THROWS A FIT AFTER PELOSI TELLS HIM NO

Today is the 19th day of the government shutdown. If it drags on much longer, the U.S. is at risk of losing its triple-A rating, which could increase borrowing costs and put a chill on the economy. At present, 800,000 federal employees are either furloughed or being forced to work without pay, including T.S.A. agents and the Secret Service. Farmers are struggling to get the subsidies they were promised to offset the damage done by the president‘s trade war. Financial-fraud investigations have “ground to a halt.” Human shit and garbage have piled up in national parks. Speaking of shit, food inspections by the F.D.A. have been curtailed, including inspections of food considered “high risk,” raising the possibility of E. Coli and salmonella outbreaks. At the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, 1,523 of 3,531 employees “are considered non-essential,” while D.H.S.’s Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office is reportedly two-thirds empty.

Trump doesn't care for the lives of people under his employment. They should make him do that Undercover Boss thing.

No, he's lying about a crisis at the border while brewing multiple real crises with the shutdown. Which he prefers to call a strike. Vladimir must be like this :excited:

Weren't you going to tell us why it's ok for your wife to have free health coverage, but not hundreds of millions of people to your south? Oh that's right, you got shut up again.


Oh, do you mean having an adult and sensible conversation/discussion on this ‘rational forum’ about an issue? ‘specially on a forum that says that it’s a ‘lifeboat’. Well I suppose it could well be a lifeboat if we’re talking about the Titanic or the Mary Celeste.

I made it to 1:41, when they clapped for Ivanka Trump. Not about any of her illustrious accomplishments, just at the mention of her scumbag name by her scumbag father with the orange face and the white eye-rings. What a shit-show of spineless cowards that group is.


Now I wonder, :scratch: I just wonder why such a mighty fine discussion just might not be as productive as one might like or expect.
In other words, you're admitting here that you come here only to troll. Which everybody knows anyway, except you, apparently. Have you ever seen me post something as confrontational as what I just did to you? That could make you stop and think.

How can they rake the forests with the Nat'l Park service "on strike" ? Every day he finds new ways to fuck things up.

I used your excellent rebuttal that you posted in my thread. I thought you'd be proud of it since it comes from your own skilled hand at writing. :thumbup:

Where did I possibly go wrong? :scratch:

The fact that you chose to respond to Rachel and not OlivierK is telling. Clearly you aren’t interested in “rational” discourse. So why the fuck are you here exactly?

To be obnoxious.

(You know that.)

I find it astonishing that people like OlivierK attempt to sincerely engage SP whatsoever given his consistently dishonest, childish behaviour. I do admire the ongoing effort though. More patient people than I, that's for sure!

From the most recent pre-helicopter ride:

Q: Does the buck stop with you over this shutdown?

Trump: "The buck stops with everybody."

Also, in this new era of civility in politics, Trump spoke of "Crying Chuck Schumer."

The self-proclaimed most popular Republican president of all time, and self-proclaimed smartest man whoever lived tweeted:
Cryin Chuck told his favorite lie when he used his standard sound bite that I “slammed the table & walked out of the room. He had a temper tantrum.” Because I knew he would say that, and after Nancy said no to proper Border Security, I politely said bye-bye and left, no slamming!

When you're 72 years old, president of the US, and have called a very important meeting, saying bye-bye and walking out because your opponents said no, is throwing a tantrum. For the genius who wrote "The Art of the Deal", this should be known. :lol:

There’s no outrage ‘cause this is a rational forum with 100s and 100s of mature and sensible posts that will attest to that fact.

After all… this is a shining example of a lifeboat for the rational (cough, cough) mind.

so just faux concern then, well done.

‘Deepfakes’ in action: Seattle TV station accused of doctoring Trump speech video

10 Jan, 2019

Image

As the nation tuned in to President Trump’s national address on border security, one Seattle TV station apparently manipulated its coverage on the fly, editing the footage to show Trump sticking out his tongue at viewers.

In a side-by-side comparison, Q13 Fox in Seattle appears to have edited its coverage of Trump’s address, turning the president’s skin color a ludicrous shade of orange. In between sentences, the station seems to have doctored the footage to show Trump sticking out his tongue and licking his lips.
