Yeah, he's a strange, privileged, egotistical, selfish dude but that doesn't change the fact that a sizable percent of the US population are willing, even eager to part with their money and the foundation of their nation for him.  

Perhaps his ignorant/insolent behavior is a forbearance of America's ultimate destiny.

In their world everything that doesnt condemn Biden is a deflection.  Trump has said over the course of years, easily the most stupid things an American president has ever uttered. He is given a complete pass by his brainwashed cultists. 

One could say the cult has a blindspot.

Imagine if Joe Biden said "Tim Apple". You are an intelligent guy, you know what what your right wing compatriots would be saying.

Did they say it about Trump? Trump has said more stupid things than the previous 44 presidents put together. Why did that never alarm you?

I think I can explain all this. Actually I know I can explain it.

When He Called Tim Cook "Tim Apple."

Trump has mangled names dozens if not hundreds of times. One could say he has done it so much that his blatant ignorance of how to refer to people in a consistently decent way is seen as "immaterial" . 

Imagine if Joe Biden called Tim Cook "Tim Apple". It would be all over right wing media, all their shows and all their twitter and "truths" and everywhere else. It would be seen as more "proof" that Biden is senile. It would be for a relatively brief period, a "big deal" in the conservative media sphere. Undoubtedly some folks would hee haw about it here on Newstalkers. 

When Trump does it , it doesnt get the same play, because, Trump has been saying stupid stuff like that for decades and the ridiculousness of his words is baked into the way he is perceived, with the result that we hear something like "thats just Trump being Trump" or "who cares, he owns the libs and thats all that matters". Trumps routine inability to make sense , pronounce names, remember names, or identify people properly is given a pass. 

As we see in this article above, Trump routinely says a wide array of really stupid things, and because it happens so often the impact of any one piece of it is diluted into virtual nothingness. Biden is not given that luxury, because, well, more is expected of him. 

If Biden looked into an eclipse of the sun without the proper eye gear the right would say he's too senile to know better. With Trump they (his MAGA lemmings)  say he's too cool to care. 

Again we see the failure of mainstream media to have pointed out , in a more serious way, how utterly strange of a human being Donald Trump is. And now , frankly, it is too late for that tactic.

he doesn't own me. He can't piss me off anymore. I know who and what he is and I have no more time to waste on him...except to make fun of him. I'll always make time for that

This partisan shit from both sides needs to stop. When Trump fucks-up it's a major catastrophe, when Biden fucks-up it just Joe being Joe. 

Imagine Trump saying to Chuck Graham (a wheelchair bound state senator) "Stand up Chuck, let 'em see you" It would be all-over left-wing media, all their shows and all their twitter and "truths" and everywhere else. To Democrats it was just Joe being cute.

Yes.

When Trump fucks-up it's a major catastrophe, when Biden fucks-up it just Joe being Joe. 

You just stated the partisan shit from both sides needs to stop and in your next sentence imply that it is only the Ds doing it.

Imagine Trump saying to Chuck Graham ...

And now you continue the R partisan crap.


Your comment would have been responsible and objective if you would have stopped at your first sentence.

He didn't imply that only democrats do it.

This whole article highlights Trump's "stupid and silly moments". He simply countered that by giving examples of what the left would do if it were Trump doing all of Biden's "stupid and silly moments".

That phrase does not work when you are wrong.

He made an excellent point that the partisan shit from both sides needs to stop.   

He then immediately controverted his point by stating one-sided partisan shit.

  • Stating partisan shit is the opposite of stopping.
  • One-sided partisan shit controverts both sides.

In simpler terms, it is best to not state an ideal and then contradict it by example.
