That's nice but not necessary. Feel free to tell us how smart you are compared to career military types.

Starbucks has opened 50 stores near military facilities, make this man a general immediately.

How can a person who convinced people to gladly pay $6 for a cup of coffee be this devoid of people skills?

Get bent, Howie.

Trump has a clear path to a second term, because his opponents will step on their dicks and clitorises whilst apologizing for their stupidity. Attend your next town meeting. The federal government will be slaughtered by this new round of dumbassery and interference. Your local government is all we have.

Even without this... he's a raging douchebag asshole who needs to go away.

Kenny G, serve your country. Talk to your friend. End this. You owe us that much.

he honestly thought Clay Bennett would keep the Sonics in Seattle.  How smart can he really be?

The second Starbucks shares drop because of his antics, the shareholders better have a Papa Johns-style plan ready to enact.

He doesn't work at teh company anymore.

I think we've seen conclusively that Schultz hired someone who had people skills who came up with that.

"I probably have spent more time in the last decade certainly than anyone running for president with the military," Schultz said, adding that he'd been to bases in Japan and Kuwait.

Buttiegieg currently serves as a lieutenant in the Naval Reserve and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2014 for seven months. In 2009, he was commissioned a naval intelligence officer in the Navy Reserve.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) was deployed from 2004 to 2005 to Iraq, where she served in a field medical unit of the Hawaii Army National Guard, and was also deployed to Kuwait from 2008 to 2009.


Jesus farking christ.

Come on. Is any of this really so hard??
 
2019-03-15 12:57:03 AM  
Can we stop paying attention to him now please?  How the f*ck did we not learn any f*cking thing the 2016 election and paying attention to attention whores.
 
2019-03-15 01:00:34 AM  
"I probably have spent more time in the last decade certainly than anyone running for president with the military,"

This sounds just like a stupid think Trump would say.
 
2019-03-15 01:04:18 AM  
Is he in the "sorry I ever got pregnant in the first place" stage of grieving his stillborn campaign?
 
2019-03-15 01:21:48 AM  
Ah yes, the Billionaire Make A Wish presidential candidate and his endless stupidity for all to see

He's still the largest individual shareholder.

"I remember a Green Beans Coffee at the exchange at Bagram, and a decent espresso machine run by the Italian NATO element at ISAF HQ. But I don't recall seeing any Starbucks over there," Buttiegieg fired back in a tweet with Schultz's quote.

Ohhh, that gulp of coffee looked like it burnt you pretty bad, Mr. Schultz, would you like some milk for that?
 
2019-03-15 01:40:22 AM  
I'm embarrassed for this asshole he's so incompetent. He should just quietly disappear.
 
2019-03-15 01:55:52 AM  
Every time this sort of thing comes out in public, it reminds me in a big way that getting rich has absolutely nothing to do with being smart.
 
2019-03-15 02:36:50 AM  
He meant he'd spent more time than anyone in the race that anybody has ever heard of.
 
2019-03-15 02:41:44 AM  
Howard Schultz, release your tax returns.
 
2019-03-15 03:09:47 AM  
Anyone, no matter how smart, that runs as an independent is just making it easier for Trump to have second chance.
 
2019-03-15 03:11:30 AM  
I read it as "straps on his dick."

/Also kind of works
 
2019-03-15 03:56:59 AM  
And yet AMAZINGLY somehow this type of argument worked fine for Trump. The draft dodging guy who faked bone spurs to escape Vietnam claimed he knew more than ALL the generals because he went to Military Cosplay School for Naughty Rich Boys, which is where rich people send their fark up out of control children.
 
2019-03-15 04:24:02 AM  
Why is he talking to Hugh Hewitt?  Why is anyone talking to Hugh Hewitt?

That's what Scultz wants. He's running to kill any move to reducing wealth disparity and so he'd prefer Trump over anyone with a reasonable fiscal policy.

That's pretty much his campaign slogan, isn't it?

(1) Because his money means he never has to have prolonged contact with normal people or pay any attention to their concerns for longer than it takes for them to exit his awareness, or:

(2) He had the intelligence and talent to understand economics and business but never had any real people skills to begin with, and let other people handle the social interaction/social engineering part.

(3) Both (1) and (2).

Schultz may just be incompetent enough to pull votes away from Trump.

/ he just needs a whiter last name
// not that there's anything wrong with Schultz
/// but, you know, Trump voters

The fact that he's failing shows you the difference between the Republicanand Democratic bases.

"...In that moment ..."

Go fark yourself.
 
2019-03-15 09:19:10 AM  
Haven't you heard? Having anybodea what you're talking about is no longer a requirement to be president.

Also, piss off, Howard.

Howard Schultz has a dick to step on?

/That's right. This man has no dick.

It's ok though, trumps insurance plan doesn't actually have to win.

Huggermugger: Why is he talking to Hugh Hewitt?  Why is anyone talking to Hugh Hewitt?


Because he just wants both sides to be more moderate.  Especially the Democrats.
 
2019-03-15 11:38:14 AM  
Howard Schitz drew the short straw at Davis and was thus selected to run. Sole purpose is to pull swing votes away from the Dems by pretending to be a moderate. This guy's only allegiance is to the color green. I still haven't seen an interview with him where he states what he's for.It's all about what he's against. What he's against puts him solidly in the Republican camp.

Davis = Davos.
