wichitaleaf: Percise1: Uncle Pooky: Trump is an idiot, and anyone who voted for him is an idiot.

Brief... accurate... undeniable...
I like it!

I've known a meth addicted tow truck driver that had more class and propriety than Trump has.
Trump is farking unbelievable, and the fact that people did, much less still, support him is appalling. The fact that government officials support him is verging on treason as far as I'm concerned.

I just watch in disbelief as this mockery of leadership continues...
I'll be fine, I'll ride out the storm. I'll outlast Trump and be ok, but countless farkwits won't be. If this ship doesn't right itself afterwards, maybe I'll have to cut and run. The morans who cheer him on won't have that option though. It is incredible to watch...

He is doing a fine job, stop watching MSNBC and CNN.
Enjoy the next 7 years!


Sorry to burst your bubble, Fox Entertainment watcher. The person you voted for is an idiot, and that is probably because you are a moron. Your perception and opinion is worth a month of my toenail clippings, and I've already thrown them out.

TL;DR
Shut up Troll, get back in your hole!

probesport: AugieDoggyDaddy: wichitaleaf: rummonkey: harleyquinnical: Mugato: He's clinically insane. It's not even debatable anymore.

He wants the grandeur, the prestige, and the praise.  The details do not matter.  He just wants to appear to be one of the people.  It's not that he is insane so much as the product of an upbringing in the 50's with having lots of money and never hearing the word 'no'.  He is a spoiled rich kid who wants to play Army.  A short temper and a fragile ego do not make him insane.  He is mentally incompetent, possibly due to the lack of exercise and vulgar eating habits.

He is widely known as a rich buffoon in NY social circles, part of the reason he prefers to go to events he hosts. I remember reading about the rich kid social groups in NY and Ivanka was always a bit of a pity case because of his idiocy.

You forgot one word when describing "NY social circles".

How are you arriving at that conclusion?

. What's more, it seems Trump had never seen canned chicken before, and their very existence amazed him. "Whoa! I've never seen that before," he said while holding one of the cans up. "That looks kind of good. Let's start handing it out. Do you feel like this?

When I think of "canned chicken," I think pre-cooked breast, and I don't see what's gross unless someone just doesn't like canned food in general (or how to use it right -- we just had a Spam thread that covered the same kind of thing).

It's the "glop" that's in the can with the chicken.

At least that's what my first world problem with it was.  Then I became a poor, and glop is extra filler for your stomach!

Dry Ramen FTW (That shiat expands real nice, tricking you into fullness)

I live happily knowing that anyone who balks at food, has never been hungry.

Yeah ArthurVandelay, I'm with you on that. Back in the 80s when I was but a young goatling and Mama and Pops Goat were newly immigrated to this country we were poor as I dunno what. We lived In Queens and a luxurious dinner was this delicious gravy mom made out of chicken livers, served with rice. Hunger is the BEST chef.

Trump held as many Liberal and Libertarian view as anybody else back in the 90s. It was more about Trump being tacky and boorish.


People in NYC generally consider everyone else in this country to be tacky and boorish.

The feeling is usually mutual.

To be fair, though, the chicken coming out of the can is backwards compared to the photo. Of course the photo is going to look better. It's taken from the best angle.

Never even noticed since I rinse out canned food.

One good way to get flamed in a Fark food thread is to suggest that Americans underseason everything and that's why they have to be so picky in the first place.

When I originally had seen a clip of him throwing stuff to the small crowd of people looking for supplies I thought, "Okay, that's dumb that he's throwing paper towels to people... Wait... that's a can. Don't throw that... oh okay... he seemed to have thought better of that."

Turns out, no... he didn't think better of that. He had to be TOLD not to throw canned goods at the crowd.

The 'oh this is bullshiat' look he gives before tossing it over his shoulder is pretty farking infuriating if you were to see this and oh, I don't know, be dying of dehydration because you don't have access to clean water.
But hey, you might get clocked in the head with a soup can for your troubles, TRUMP LOVES AMARAKA HASHYTHING MAGA!

Everyone leaves the part of the water purification story out where he implies that the person he's talking to is just trying to sell him on their product like it's farking Shark Tank.

"Is this your company or something?" Trump asked the woman, seeming suspicious of the aggressive pitch.
"No," she said, "I'm part of the church."

No, I don't. I think awarding contracts to rebuild after a natural disaster to companies who donate to your personal foundation is bad. Not illegal, but certainly more of a concern than throwing a roll of paper towels. I can only imagine the millions she'd be making right now if she won.
