Trumpite Americans, when will you finally acknowledge your leader is a joke?

    I am very much in the camp that the confederacy was an insurgency and they were all traitors (despite many of my ancestors being confederate soldiers and officers), but Sherman was a monster and every bit as destructive as Lee and Davis. He committed genocide across the west. He should be every bit as ostracized as the southern military generals. There's a statue of him in Dundee Michigan. Every time I drive past it, I flip him off.

    What I don’t get is that R.E. Lee was the worst thing one can ever be in the Trumpverse: a loser. He admitted he was beaten and surrendered. Praising Lee is remarkably off-brand for Trump. :marathon:

    That could be interesting. Biden works out on a Peloton every day; Trump can barely haul his bloated carcass a few hundred feet at a time.

    I'd be worried Biden would bruise his hands worse than McConnell.

    No. It's typical. He has no standards. He keeps changing depending on which way the wind blows. Years ago, I read on a church sign "stand for something or you'll fall for anything". I didn't know what it meant then (I was only 16), but I knew it meant something. Trump doesn't stand for anything. He has no morals or any kind of personal ethics. So, he is easily swayed by his own ignorance.

    I can see it now. Biden, being a normal adult would not throw a punch, just keeps moving around avoiding trump who is flailing wildly unable to hit his target until he finally collapses from exhaustion and possibly a heart attack.

    I’d be happy to get in the ring with Trump. Of course being a pro wrasslin’ fan he’d probably get Lou Albano’s thugs to do a run in…:harass:

    Broke Dick Jr is hinting that his dad might reveal the “secrets” of Area 51 at this event. I wonder how many saps will tune in thinking that they’ll be told the “real” story of the place?

    For all the proud boys out there I actually want to see Obama fight Trump. I know it would never happen, and I am not a huge president obama fan, but if regular Obama did that shit and just kept serving it up to trump with taunt after taunt he would be awesome. If they got in the ring and Obama kicked Trump's ass OMG he would have the mojo of shaft and samuel jackson's love child.

    Obama simply operated to a higher standard.

    This is simply something that wouldn't have been on the radar coming from him.

    I mean now. If trump wants to play bad ass boxer it would be just awesome to have Obama shut him the fuck up. Because you know the trumpanzees imagine him as rocky beating up the black guy, and what other black guy pisses them off as much as Obama. In reality Trump would have to run while Obama has the fame to chase and mock the fuck out of him. If he actually accepted Obama is pretty fit and would wipe the floor with flabio. Obama has enough fame and their hatred that the trumpanzees could not ignore his taunts. It would be an ultimate way to shame the fuck out of the entire trump movement.

    Trump vs Biden just does not have the same power.

    In Trump's head that picture of him with Stallones body is reality and the lies told by his mirror can thus be ignored.

    He genuinely seems to believe in the worldview he has cultivated and I strongly suspect that is part of his appeal. Reality and fantasy blur to the point I do at times actually wonder if he is even aware of his own dishonesty.

    People believe the things he says in no small part because he believes then too.

    When he holds forth on how the world has maligned him I think he believes that with a conviction born of an inability to process the idea of being wrong.

    He doesn't just lie, he projects his own inner world and thus not only disregards other points of view but any evidence to support those viewpoints. Show him a recording of his own blunders and ineptitude and he will happily deny the events being shown to him because clearly those events can't have happened.

    Even the most concrete proofs are ephemeral next to that externalising of his own beliefs, so he sees no problem in simply dismissing even the most damming evidence. Hence he can happily watch a video of himself saying or doing something witnessed by millions of people and still outright deny it, leaving opponents nonplussed by the dissonance.

    In that regard his self belief has the flavour of religion. The message of doubting Thomas is that faith is to be valued over doubt and seeking evidence is a weakness when the answers have already been given.

    In Trump's case Jesus has been replaced by, well, himself. He has absolute faith which denies inconvenient contradictions offered by a weak and fallible external reality.

    I'm betting if there actually was anything super top secret, the national security folks would have kept it away from Trump, knowing full well that he'd blab.

    Yes, I get that. Though I have some difficulty with Obama as president, I do not think he is a terrible guy and would trust his judgment in giving trump a humiliating pounding that was worthwhile and rightious. I think he would know when to stop. It would be somewhat good to see, though shallow and probably not going to actually change anything at all.

    If you have seen the episode of south park where wendy beats the shit out of cartman, I would imagine Trump would find some way to twist his beating into a victory in his head. But I would still really like to see the black president that caused the white right to melt down just beat the fuck out of their great white nope. It would just be a feel good moment that I think we could all go for. Maybe he could make a world tour sort of thing and go over and give Boris the thrashing he deserves too. I really do not give a fuck about prize fighters, but I would pay some money to see Obama just beat the fuck out of some old white politicians.

    I think you are just missing my fantasies.

    Yes, an element of his extreme and extraordinary narcissism.

    In Woodward's book there was this exchange:

    Sec Def Mattis: The President has no moral compass.
    ODNI Coats: To him, a lie is not a lie. It's just what he thinks. He doesn't know the difference between the truth and a lie.

    These are his own cabinet level officials having a discussion inside the White House!

    Even if Trump WAS told any deep dark secrets about Area 51/UFOs/that big Polo mint they have at Cheyenne, the chances he could meaningfully articulate it to anyone are remote.

    We have more chance of communicating WITH aliens than getting anything coherent out of Donnie Boy.

    Our former PM Tony Abbott (you may know him as the creepy onion guy) once threatened to beat up Putin. Fortunately(unfortunately?) he was talked out of trying.

    Putin was an intelligence analyst and recruiter. He wasn't an operative.

    And his skill in judo is always carefully edited - there's very little in the way of him actually sparring, just video of warmups and then a throw or two.

    I'm sure he has some skill, but I'm also sure that very few people in Russia would show up the Premier, and even more sure that if anything like that happened it would never get to the foreign press.

    Almost all of these strong men tyrants create these myths about themselves. Putin is just very good at it.

    I have a black belt in judo, and aikido for that matter.
