He basically responded like this but politely:

Maybe a little bit too subtle, neither trump nor his MAGAt cult are likely to see what Beto did there.

i state your name: Maybe a little bit too subtle, neither trump nor his MAGAt cult are likely to see what Beto did there.


I'll admit, part of me was kinda hoping he'd give that sort of straight-faced speech, but with wildly exaggerated hand movements -- or alternatively, just him standing stock straight in front of the camera, nary a single twitch, giving the most wooden, staccato, straight-off-a-cue-card speech humanly possible.

But the larger part of me is glad he took the high road with a subtle and tacit better-than-that-bullshiat biatch slap.

Just once, I want to see someone say, in plain language, "Who gives a shiat what that farking moron thinks, honestly? The guy could fark up a wet dream, and here he is worried about my friggin' hands? Tell him to shut the fark up and go back to work, that fat, stupid farking piece of shiat."
 
2019-03-15 09:43:06 AM  
Oh, so he has nothing to say about Beto's policies, platform, or general beliefs and is therefore using schoolyard bully tactics to belittle him?

Color. Me. Shocked.

It's because progressives are cursed with thinking of the consequences of their actions.

I'm sure the fark independent democrats trolls will be along shortly to explain how terrible this is for Beto.

He reminds me of Dubya and Rick Perry for some reason.

He does flap his mitts around a bit. Then again, so does Trump.

This is pretty much the only thing Biden has going for him, the suspicion that he'll pretty much start saying this, precisely.

Considering Beto shifted the vote 17% and D2S's margin was only 9%, the GOP is rather concerned.  Beto has an amazing donor base and GTVO machine.
 
2019-03-15 09:47:35 AM  
Yep - exactly.  Don't give Trump the opportunity to engage in a pissing match - sweep his name under the rug and change the subject.

/ It's probably the worst thing you can do to Trump.

That was about as close as we'll get in the political arena.

He went on a roadtrip with his Republican dudebro and got a dwi?
 
2019-03-15 09:50:26 AM  
I was hoping it would straight up be "Well, of course he's upset, mine are quite a lot bigger than his."

But why won't he hit back like AOC??
 
2019-03-15 09:51:55 AM  
Trump is just jealous because Beto has bigger hands.
 
2019-03-15 09:52:24 AM  
It's going to be fun seeing Trump attacking all these people. I think that this might be the strategy. Saturate the field so that no single candidate gets misinformation spread about them much.

So we're gonna need someone with nothing to lose and no farks left to give to take center stage for a bit while the real contenders work behind the scenes and get their operations in order.

I really wish, in response to whatever childish bullshiat is happening, more people would just say "Oh." and move on.

"Mr O'Rourke, Donald Trump says you use your hands too much when you speak."
"Oh."
"..."
"..."

Let them work out for themselves that only questions of substance, that productively move a discussion along, are the only ones that'll get any kind of useful response.

// as a bonus, a lot of people will start uploading those clips as "BETO DESTROYS TRUMP DOWN TO THE VERY RUBBLE OF HIS SOUL WITH A SINGLE SYLLABLE OMG YOU WON'T BELIEVE THE SAVAGERY"

Beto (in my perfect world):  I'm sorry my hand movements are distracting for you Mr. Trump, however they are generally used to provide emphasis for my talking points.  I realize your hands are too busy grabbing pussies and your daughters hips.  Too busy pointing out that you're OK and the number one piece of shiat.  But that's okay.  You do you.  Why don't you fold those hands and arms under your moobs and keep them there like the petulant giant man baby that you are.

"I think people want us to rise above the pettiness, the smallness - they want us to be big, bold, ambitious for this country. That's what I'm focused on and that's what I see here today in Burlington," he said during a campaign stop in Burlington, Iowa.

Free America Tip, slick:  people want pettiness and smallness because they are petty and small.  You should make your campaign entirely about the drive-thru never getting your order right.  Promise to fix that and you'll win by a landslide.

I was expecting him to make Trump's signature "asshole" gesture the entire time he was speaking.

The commenter is trying to be an edgy memelord, but he's slightly less witty than the "herbal teabagger" guy.

So this criticism of Beto means that trump is aware of this failing in himself.

Posting a pro-Beto cover photo isn't a meme. It's not my fault his expression is the human embodiment of the Price Is Right losing trombone; his team probably chose the photo.

GoldSpider: But why won't he hit back like AOC??


He's not in "position" for that?  Aside from any policy he has, I think that Beto can totally own Trump in any context.  But I don't think he can come out "guns a blazin" a this point - I kind of wish he would but I can understand if he doesn't.
 
2019-03-15 10:01:22 AM  
You would think President Sniffles would have more important things to worry about.

DT uses gestures to manipulate people so he's looking for this stuff.
 
2019-03-15 10:03:04 AM  
This type of response is what makes me happy he did join the race. On a practical side, I'd rather see Warrens or Abrams. Both have shown a will AND success in rooting out corruption. I don't know if anyone else in the race has. But Beto's way of ignoring the he said she said is a good contribution and it's going to be needed on the big stage.
