I'm surprised he didn't bring along and throw a bunch of baseballs.

Puerto Ricans love baseball. It been belly belly good to them.

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.

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, it doesn't change anything. Throwing paper towels around at an aid center full of hurricane victims like it's a party is callous no matter what preposition you choose.

I'd have to see the video, I guess.

The crowd seemed to be getting into a good mood with the paper towels, so if he jokingly picked up a heavy can of chicken and pretended like he'd throw it, the crowd could have just as jovially rejected it.

Or maybe he was really going to lob a can of chicken.

Who knows.

The problem with "insane" is that its a meaningless term from a clinical standpoint.  It's only relevance is as an affirmative defense to criminal liability.  I'm cool with malignant narcissist or sociopath, but I think the term "insane" should be avoided lest it become his defense to charges of treason.

Are you honestly trying to say that there's not even a CHANCE that Trump isn't enough of a dumbfark to pick up a can of chicken and try to lob it out into a crowd?


Supposition does not equal fact.

Do I think he's an idiot, fark yeah.

Do I think he could do something so stupid? (He's done greater already)

Still doesn't change the fact that this story is not how it's being represented, and that adds fuel to Trumps' "They lie about me" fire.

"Just the facts."

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.

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

If you drew the short straw for making excuses for Trump today, you may want to save your energy. Given the whole todo with Tillerson you might have a lot of work this evening, and the damage is already done from his completely tone deaf PR visit.

Best to just pretend this doesn't exist and save up for potential fallout this evening.

They're warming up. Can't just shill cold. That's how you get a sprain.


Ooo Ooo!!! Do I get to be a Trump supporter in this thread?

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...

Do the old contracts expire at the end of September, or is the new class of Drewgs just getting added to the roster?

Smells like new school clothes in this thread.

Percise1: 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!


Wow, such mean words.
I do feel sorry for the people around you.

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."


 I would love I would love to read an interview with that lady about her thoughts on the presidents competency.

At this point I am willing to give people who voted for him a little leeway, anyone who somehow STILL supports him?  You are scum of the earth piles of shiat, the embodiment of everything wrong with this country.
A bunch of sane people voted for Trump because Republican and Taxes and they are having massive regrets, can't take a shiat on people who learned from their mistakes.


BULL FARKING SHIAT.  The GOP have been scum since WWI and flat-out traitors since Eisenhower; and have only been getting worse since.  The absolute *LAST* chance a Republican voter deserved a pass was voting for Dubya in 2000 because the GOP had the veneer of not being obvious scumbags to the merest cursory glance.  But if you've voted for any Republican in any jurisdiction for any position since the Iraq Invasion; you are 100% absolute traitor scum that hates everything good America tried to uphold as a good ideal to Humanity.

Think Trump throwing paper towels at Puerto Ricans was bad?

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.

goat012006: ArthurVandelay: IHadMeAVision: skyotter: I'm very glad that nobody in this thread has faced food insecurity so bad that you're farking THANKFUL for canned chicken.

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.


There is apparently a thing called "whole chicken in a can" which is in fact a whole chicken in a can, which is as revolting as it sounds.

idrow: 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's a narcissistic sociopath, but I'm cool with the clinically insane diagnosis.  I really think there should be a psyche eval requirement when someone runs for president.  At the very least, he is mentally unfit.


No sane person could want to be president.   Catch-22

Eh. Maybe some day I'll buy one of those canned whole chickens just to try it.
They look gross because of the jelly stuff they're packed in but it's just a chicken. Anyone that thinks the canned chicken breast chunks are any less processed are lying to themselves.

In fact, they probably come from the same factory and off the same line. One chicken goes right to be a whole canned chicken, one goes to the left to be canned chicken breast chunks.

The message: there is no problem. Just a little damp spot you can wipe up with a paper towel.

The reality: as anybody who has had their house or workplace under water knows, you may have to rebuild from scratch because of water damage to everything from foundations to the roof. Roads, bridges, buildings, hospitals are all out or working at only a fraction of their full capacity.

Trump solution: Throw a few rolls of paper towel at people. Photo op.

ONLY ONE HOSPITAL OUT OF 68 IS FULLY FUNCTIONAL. THROW THOSE PEOPLE SOME ROLLS OF PAPER TOWELS. IF THEY FAIL TO REBUILD FROM FOURTH WORLD CONDITIONS, THEY ARE PATHETIC, LAZY, DUMB.

I'll try this one more time for the slow children...

This was not a ribbon-cutting for a paper towel factory, where it would have been completely appropriate and fun to toss some paper towels around. This was tasteless and inappropriate at a photo op where you are supposed to be distributing relief supplies. It wasn't even an error in judgment, it's Trump showing the country once again that he is a sociopath with a complete lack of empathy for anyone not named Donald Trump.

And as far as the crowd being amused by President Tone-Deaf's antics, they were a friendly audience. If you think the crowd at that church wasn't hand picked you've never been to a political photo-op before. You know how you can tell? Because the average Puerto Rican would have walked up to that pendejo and kicked him square in the huevos.

People on Fark would rather be outraged than contemplate the fact that the folks in Puerto Rico might have appreciated the visit and a bit of levity.

No he didn't.  He gave the propagandized-right the hate they crave is a purer form than the usual dog-whistles.  So they chose him over the candidates who were still afraid to bring the hate out into the open.
