No "cult", no "idolize", no "worship" - now any thoughts about the fact that in the American system we always have a diversity of opinion?

 

In light of the above, your second part has no merit.

Due to Trump, most of the world is calling America dysfunctional.


But, that is not the point. We are talking about the President's words. Was he not talking about nations that are horrible dysfunctional?

 

Why are the members of the cult of hate unable to deal with that?


"The Cult" as you called us much prefer our top diplomat to have a slightly better vocabulary, a slightly better grasp of the consequences of his words, and a bit of a brain filtering the things which come out of his mouth.  One of the many reasons Trump can't seem to negotiate with other countries is that they do not trust him and this is one of the MANY examples of why.

I can't see why this deserves an additional topic, but here we are.

 

Think about the nations he was talking about - are they not dysfunctional? Are they not able to feed and protect their citizens? Are they not places that the citizens are fleeing?

 

Now, you might prefer alternate phraseology however, was his thinking  not accurate?


Trump used a gross and crass term in a way that even gave it racial overtones.  If nothing else it was not 'presidential'.  Yet trump cult members and those of the Alt-Right desperately try to defend what he said. It just ain't workin' .............


Yes, "gross and crude". Having resolved that, what about the meaning of the words? For example, if instead he had said, "Horribly dysfunctional nations that their citizens are trying to flee" - would you be one of those "cult members" agreeing with him?

 

"Alt-right" again. Sure sounds like "Anyone who disagrees with me".

As to Dems not interested in his meaning but using his colorful phraseology to attack him, we now have Dick Durbin ranting about arguing against "chain migration" being offensive to blacks because their ancestors came in chains.

 

It appears that reality has little meaning to the "Resistance".


Back to the subject. He made the comment per Reb. Senator Graham. No one has said he did not. Fox gave the marching orders last night to followers to use the approach you use.


When you talk about "what he said", are you talking about the thoughts he was expressing or the verbiage he used? And, which is more important to you?

Trump Denies Making "bleephole" Comment About African Countries

 

Trump has now changed his denial to a "partial denial".

 

Trump now (ludicrously) blames ALL Americans for what he stated in that he only said what ALL Americans are thinking ..... a far larger scapegoat than his usual consisting of Democrats, Obama and Hillary!

 

Trump wants to drag our whole country down the "**bleep** hole" his unconstitutional presidency created!

I just read that the "gross and crass term" is being projected tonight on Trump's DC hotel.
