Funniest thing about politics is that we revert back to blanket stereotypes. Imagine if 51% of conservatives like coke cola and we called them RED SUGAR. or when less than majority of Liberals (40%) liked Pepsi MAX and we called them all BLUE SYNTHETICS

Not going to lie, Blue Synthetic sounds kinda cool.

@ comeonnow0 Yeah that level of idiocy was the last thing I could take before having to block him for being such a crazy person.... he should prob go back to reading QAnon and breitbart

Yo man, don't you think this is a bit too far? If you disagree with certain users, then that's fine, as that's up to you. If you had chosen to cease interacting with certain users in the future, that would also be fine, as it would be your decision to make (although I'm sure some users would regret not being able to effectively interact with the entire userbase, yourself included).

But a user that didn't systematically (as in, over an extensive time period) post content that was divisive is now unable to fully interact with posts that you yourself put time and effort into. Isn't that unfair to both them and yourself?

“You know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of American politics puts pressure on me,” Trump told the crowd. “Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life—what am I going to do? I’m going to say, I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics! I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know.”

@Halo Holy shit that's funny. It's also funny he thinks he'll get to leave the country. NY is probably gonna file state charges as soon as he's no longer protected by the Presidency.

@BestBoy First he has to lose. But even then it's hilarious how's saying exactly the same shit Hillary voters said in 2016 about leaving the country.

@Halo True. I was surprised to learn that Canada had a boost in immigration post election. Something like 1000 more US citizens a year than normal.

Clearly I was exaggerating, but the fact still remains that Japan is one of the most conservative places on the planet.

How can you not vote for this man?

@halo it's how we sadly know that the us hasn't been contacted by aliens. Cause day two that shit woulda been on twitter. And if we had been, they prob saw his behavior in that classified debrief and were like "Ok, don't read him into 99% of the black budget projects. And bump his classified ranking down to below that of Bob, the intern." (Cause all organizations have a Bob. Or a Gary)

No proof that our milkshakes aren't good enough to bring aliens to the yard.

the "RECORD UNEMPLOYMENT RATE!!!" claims? Yeah. Heres a quiz for you. Out of the following 3 examples, who counts as Unemployed by the gov standards


It wouldn't matter how it's calculated as long as all presidents are held to the same metric, unless you're stating the Trump administration changed the definition of who counts as unemployed at it's inception. I can find no proof for this claim, as far my research, the U3(most quote statistic for US unemployment) methodology has not been significantly altered since 1994. I suppose if you want to be pedantic, the most accurate statement is "RECORD UNEMPLOYMENT RATE SINCE BILL CLINTON". It would be an accurate statement to state that the the rates are hitting records.

Unless you have something substantial to show that the situation is currently different? For example, do you believe that in fact, while people may be losing more jobs than ever, a majority of them have, in your words.
Decided to focus on getting fluid in mandarin. not actively looked for a job for 6 months.

More than anyone in the previous 2 and half decades this metric has been used?

It's not even that I like Trump, the most amazing part is that he managed to hit both highest and lowest unemployment rates via this metric in the same presidency. What a wild ride.

Citation on the methodology of unemployment rating not changing since 1994.

I still don't get all the Trump hate. He doesn't act presidential? If Bush,Clinton,Bush, Obama, were the definition of Presidential, I'll take a self assured patriot that still believes in the Don't Tread On Me motto, and comes across as a actual human being any day!

He's a businessman instead of a politician.
He actually knows how to run a multinational empire.
He's actually doing what he said he'd do, versus just talk in useless presidential babble that get's nothing done.
He's not of the swamp creature class that's fighting tooth and nail to maintain the quagmire he's valiantly trying to drain.
He's actually believes America is equal to foreign nations, versus caving, bowing, apologizing for existing, kissing ass, and living according to the globalist precedent that we somehow deserve the status of the floormat of the modern world.
He believes trade deals should be reciprocal.
He believes nations should do their part to fulfill their obligations, and then if that's not enough we will step in.

Unlike the previous Presidential seat warmers he actually bypassed the whiny brats of the Middle East and negotiate actual peace deals between the adults in the arab nations, and Israel! (So let's consider the mystery, if the Abraham accords happen and American media ignores it, did it actually happen?) ( He got 3 Nobel peace prize nominations for his work to normalize relations between Serbia, and Kosovo, as well as Between Israel, UAE, and Bahrain, with more nations in line to sign up in the future.)

Rather then act a fool and incite panic over the COVID-19 he put up a optimistic front, restricted travel from the hot zones, removed bureaucratic red tape BS, and mobilized America's potential to the fullest, to get available supplies distributed, and secure new sources of required assets when the globalist's supply chains fell flat! Then he backed the push for rapid testing, and development of therapeutics, and a vaccine that could be put into distribution in the near future, without the world having to sit on it's collective ass in quarantine for 4 years waiting for the virus to go away!

Personally I think a down to earth working man as President who believes the bear has been poked one time too many by the Socialist Globalists & Demo-rats, and it's time to bite, claw, and put them in their place because the American Tea Party, and the forgotten man has had enough of their πŸ’©, makes him the best thing that could ever happen to this country. 😀

Are you sure about that? To me, it looks like brain slugs are real and have been invading for quite some time.

Oh my god I think it even sadder that this racist man has managed to do more then the last 5 presidents. It’s like Steven universe for representation it’s better then nothing but we could’ve had something much fucking better. I hope the next presidents learn one thing from trump. Actually do something.

Wasn't there like some sort of wall that Mexico was supposed to pay for? Or was that just a fever dream?

If you had a herd of goats, say, and your goats were roaming onto your neighbor's property and eating up their pasture (and probably much more, considering goats eat just about everything), it would be your responsibility to build a fence strong enough to contain your goats. If you did not, there would be legal repercussions.
