  1. They're maiming and murdering civilians. They're maiming and murdering children. They're maiming and murdering an American aid organization. Donald Trump stood aside and enabled this. And now he's making jokes about it at his rallies. Everyone told you this kind of stuff would happen if you elected this man, and you either didn't believe us or didn't care. This is who you are and what you've done, and no cheap jokes about me can change that.
  2. You asked a question, I answered. I'd bet that most anti-Trump people agree with me. You can ask them if you want. Or you can actually address the substance of why people think that. But we all know nobody here will do that, because your support for the man is indefensible. That's why you all magically disappeared yesterday when he was supporting ethnic cleansing, committing the most brazen act of corrupt self-dealing in American political history, and having his chief of staff admit a massive and blatantly corrupt abuse of power within the span of a couple hours. So you'll make jokes about me, and you'll pat each other on the back, and you'll pretend that none of the stuff I just listed is actually happening or that it's no big deal.
  3. In addition to the fact that this is completely wrong and that there obviously was an explicit quid pro quo, it's irrelevant and laughably silly. The president doesn't need to explicitly demand a quid pro quo in order to make it improper for him to demand a politically motivated investigation abroad. The mere fact that the person on the other side of the call knows he's dealing with the president of the United States is more than enough to make it improper. But whatever. You'll tell yourself you still have a line as you watch the presidency of the United States being used as nothing more than a vehicle for personal gain as our allies are slaughtered. It was shown and said, over and over and over and over and over, that the man was a corrupt, unfit, narcissistic sociopath and an aspiring authoritarian whose election would result in exactly the sort of widespread open corruption and massive bloodshed we're seeing this week. You chose not to believe it then, and we all know you're not going to believe it now, no matter how many allies are murdered as your president crack jokes about them playing with sand, no matter how much open corruption and abuse of power you can't help but see despite every effort to shield your eyes. It would just be nice if you all stopped pretending otherwise. Nobody's buying it.
  4. I was one of the people who used to say we should leave this thread to the Trump supporters. And I did, for a long time. But #### that. The stuff going on this week has crossed the line, and no person who continues to support this disgrace deserves shelter from constant reminders of just what they've done. Frankly they deserve a lot worse than some angry anonymous liberals on the internet posting in their message board thread.
  5. 1. Hover cursor over avatar. 2. Click "ignore user" at the bottom of the pop-up. 3. Select "posts" It's just that easy, folks. What exactly is it you're seeing here that makes you hesitate?
  6. To be fair I don't think Trump himself is homophobic. He just has no problem empowering and amplifying wildly homophobic people and giving them jobs like Vice President and Attorney General for political gain. He's definitely a racist, sexist, narcissistic, corrupt idiot though.
  7. Honestly, I do kind of get it. I do the same thing when one of my favorite teams is getting blown out or having a rough week. I'll ignore them, walk away from social media and the news coverage, maybe lie to myself and say I don't really care about them that much, or try to blame fate or seek out some weak excuse for their performance. The only difference is that the Nats are just getting swept by the Mets, not inviting the mass slaughter of our allies or shredding the Constitution for personal gain. If they were doing those things I like to think I'd stop rooting for them.
  8. If you want to understand how they live with themselves, take a look through this thread- or the entire forum- and count the number of posts from Trump supporters since 3-4 hours ago, when the Mulvaney quid pro quo admission, the G-7 scam and the Turkey capitulation all came out seemingly at the same time. Or look at the number of public comments offered up by Trump allies in politics and the media since then. They live with themselves by refusing to acknowledge, let alone address, what they've empowered and enabled. Whenever they finally get their marching orders and venture back out, I promise you there won't be a single substantive response to any of these new developments It will be a gaslighting pile of false equivalences, whataboutisms and flat-out lies. ETA: Forgot to include the whining and nailing themselves to the cross. There will be lots of that too. Whining and acting persecuted is another great tactic for avoiding having to defend on substance.
  9. Which one of you is Ken Dilanian?
  10. Wait 'till the guy on the left hears about the guy on the right.
  11. The problem with this analogy is that Chamberlain presumably would have preferred to stop Hitler if possible. All available evidence is that Trump isn't standing opposed to Erdogan/Putin/Assad at all. He's their ally, and is simply seeking a more politically palatable enabling of their cruelty.
  12. This isn't a ceasefire. It's a full capitulation to a murderous dictator as an escape route for an impulsive, inexplicable foreign policy decision.
  13. I kind of understand what Joe and the rest of the mods are trying to do around here. But at some point if we aren't allowed to describe these people and their movement using accurate and easily supportable terms and descriptions, doesn't that censorship become part of the problem rather than part of the solution because it normalizes it? We should not be normalizing this degree of rampant, obvious hypocrisy and betrayal of fundamental values by rejecting accurate descriptions of it. These people are hypocritical and cult-like in their support of a cruel, corrupt bigot. And I can verify every word of that sentence with countless examples. Heck, I probably wouldn't even need to go back more than a week to do it.
  14. If it wasn't obvious, this wasn't just about the donor thing. Like for example, if anyone here would like to explain how hosting the G-7 at Doral is somehow acceptable to the same people who made "drain the swamp" a rallying cry, and talked so much about fighting corruption and self-dealing, and made a huge deal out of the mere possibility that foreign interests might gain preferential treatment by donating to a Clinton-family charity, have at it.
  15. I'm old enough to remember when you guys said you liked Trump because he was self-financing his campaign and therefore wouldn't beholden to wealthy donors and special interests. I know I'm not supposed to call you all a cult because of the forum rules and all, so can someone please give me an alternate word or phrase that I can use to describe a movement that is demonstrably based entirely on support for a person rather than principles, as evidenced by frequent position reversals and contradictions on issues in service of empowering that person? I don't want to offend anyone. TIA.
