So Trump will be within a couple of miles of me today. I'm staying home.

Alatar, you don't want to cheer him in Welcome? That's what Trump is saying the protesters are doing. How anyone cannot see that as delusional I don't know. Either he's delusional or (probably correctly) assumes those who support him will only watch the (virtually) State-run Trump Channel where he can control the narrative and they will only show clips of him saying "'Fake news', there were no protesters."

Trump had a rally about 5 miles from here in 2016. I stayed home, but our neighbors went to the roadshow. :help: He'd make a great carnival barker.

He doesn't visit us much. It's not that he can't get a welcome - if he picks the right city he'd draw a welcoming crowd. But the altitude can be hard on people. He's an old man. Maybe he just can't do a rally here.

The majority of us have voted against that. Sorry. :nana:

Seems like he's someone we should think about." - Dave_LF

Heck, that's NOTHING, compared to what he said about the Las Vegas shooter:

When the night has been too lonely, and the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows,
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes The Rose.

:bawl: :oops: :pullhair:

He obviously didn't listen to a thing the Irish PM said and went with his own narrative, as per usual.

I cannot .. simply can not.. understand the people who think Trump is a good choice for.. anything. Rebranding. He's good at that.

More like straight embarrassment.

‘Straight pride’ group removes Brad Pitt as mascot after backlash

Brad Pitt, a vocal advocate for marriage equality, demanded that his picture be taken off the website. So they replaced him. The new mascot and parade marshall of the straight pride parade is - I'm no making this up - Milo Yiannopoulos. Who is gay. And married to a man.

Too bad the expression "I can't even" is now passe. Because I can't. Even.

Well. I see that reality continues to be determined to make The Onion redundant. Neat.

That certainly is an excellent example of some of the worst aspects of the identity politics-obsessed portion of the left. Bleck.

Oh, yes. Didn't you know that the phrase, 'a woman's right to choose' is now considered hate speech?

It' painful to see this obviously caring woman doing cartwheels to try and placate these self-absorbed *!^%(&@!s. Let's hope she doesn't do anything drastic to herself in self-recrimination, or in fear of being labeled a phobe.

So the security/antivirus setting on my browser wouldn't let me through. What's happening?
