(Independent)   Trump saying "I listen better to the African-American people than anybody else, anybody else in this room" would be ridiculous under ANY circumstances, but, in a meeting with civil rights leaders like Martin Luther King III? And yes there's a tape   (independent.co.uk) divider line

Trump - "Hold my beer."

On the plus side, Trump doesn't recall saying that or any thing else.
Hell, I bet he has to retead his tweets the next day.

So.........
A being incapable of empathy, claims to have the greatest empathy of anyone, thereby proving he has no empathy all the while in the company of those for whom he claims to have this empathy?

FTFA: "At the time, you're thinking that maybe he's just waxing, you know, stupiditously, only to find out that here we are three years later, and that's actually the essence of who he is," they said. "This is who he is."

I have often found myself in situations where I've asked myself: "is that guy serious or is he just waxing stupiditously?"

Wait.  Reverse that.  I have often not found myself in that situation.

I always know when someone is waxing stupiditously.

He has no real idea of the concept of love.  Not even in a political sense.  He has never known it, and he never will.  Donald Trump will never know love, or to be relevant, the approval of African Americans.

I do hope Trump gets put in jail soon after inauguration. For me it's not abt justice really. It's more about the restrictions he'll be set with while incarcerated. He'll have no access to his phone and he'll be cut off from society. I just want it to stop. I don't want to hear anything from this asshole for the rest of his life!

On The 75th anniversary of D-Day last year that convicted Russian spy that f"caked half the GOP was on twitter talking trash about how American and British troops didn't do shiat in WWII, and it was all glorious Russia. At least her account was saying that, and nobody with any authority seemed to make a stink that a supposed convicted enemy of the state had access to the internet and social media from prison. You think it will be different with this asshole?

Except the bits of his base which hate black folks and know well that Trump does too.

Does Trump believe COVID is real or fake? Yes. Does Trump believe Obama was born in the US or Africa? Yes. What about all the folks Trump loves and hates? So many contradictory positions, yet he manages to own them all.

Are you trolling from the left again, or do you actually possess the arrogance to tell others what is and is not offensive to them?

Of course, the euphemism treadmill chugs on regardless, so ten years from now, you'll likely be performing some kind of act of public self-abasement for having used the by-then horribly bigoted term "person of colour" instead of whatever ridiculous neologism.

Those are really more just verbals tics. I think you'll find there is no relationship with the veracity of whatever is spewing from his mouth-anus at the time.

I've had a boss who had this issue. He would blatantly contradict himself in writing and when you'd show him both, he'd shrug and say a third thing. Everything he said was true as he said it when he said it and the next day it was "I didn't say that". And rules where applied to other people, made up out of whole cloth. Thanks to that experience, I spotted Trump's personality pretty early in his campaign.

They literally do not understand concepts of "true" and "false" in the same way we do. They don't *lie*. Truth is whatever they say it is.

It's an important distinction. I had such a person in my life a long time ago, and I recognised him in Trump almost instantly.

The fact is, this image macro is absolutely true:

This is the attitude I took towards Trump by about 1990 - basically, after the Central Park 5 editorial - or maybe it was the bankrupting of the Atlantic City enterprise, idk - I just came to the conclusion that he was just a buffoon and a racist - and that his business claims to fame were clearly fraudulent. I was sure, by 2000, when he was doing Pizza Hut commercials, that I could just forget about the dude. He was irrelevant to me.

How wrong was I in 21st century America?

that's the difference between selling steaks or real estate and selling politics. Most people don't have a point of reference or the information to contradict these type of absolute claims. Not many people would truly know if 'this is the best steak you've ever eaten. Nobody has steaks this tender.' Anyone with a clue or access to the internet can find the proof of trumps racist past to know this is bullshiat. If you've been conscious since George Floyd was killed it's obvious.

And you may find yourself
Living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself
In another part of the world
And you may find yourself
Behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house
With a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, well
How did I get here?


The glorious day when Trumps dementia kicks in for real.

He realized their wasn't enough representation of people of colour so, he is helping give those folks the option to vote for Kanya.

You know cause that's what people of colour have been calling for for years.....more joke candidates.

Even in his wave after wave of BS, there are some that rise above the others. I think. The remarks about things that nobody knows more than him about, like construction or technology, those are idiotic. But others are a whole different level.
No one is tougher on Russia
No one has done more for "the blacks"(I believe that's how he put it in the Axios interview)
No one has done more for  women
No one listens more to African Americans

These are so far from reality, you'd have to wonder if he's really that delusional and believes it? Or he knows it's beyond crap and a giant middle finger to anyone. Is it both? Is he smart enough to troll people that hard? I honestly think it's closer to him actually believing it.
Either way, he doesn't care. It'll always come back to him not caring.
