    You understand he was mocking the term right? Mocking how Democrats described Obama? You understand he literally didn’t mean he’s a Messiah or a religious chosen figure, right? Tell me you literally don’t think he was calling himself a Jesus figure? Please tell us you’re grounded in this world.

    I’ll copy and paste what I just wrote to another poster. You understand he was mocking the term right? Mocking how Democrats described Obama? You understand he literally didn’t mean he’s a Messiah or a religious chosen figure, right? Tell me you literally don’t think he was calling himself a Jesus figure? Please tell us you’re grounded in this world.

    Because if you did take him literally you might want to re-examine who's mentally ill. :) That’s a joke by the way. The same kind Trump in his usual stupid fashion, attempted to do, but it flew over the heads of those it was aimed at.

    1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements).
    2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love.
    3. Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high status people (or institutions).
    4. Requires excessive admiration.
    5. Has a sense of entitlement, i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations.
    6. Is interpersonally exploitative, i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends.
    7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others.
    8. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her.
    9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes.

    Jesus never claimed to be God either.

    You forgot the most important one. He’s too sarcastic for a politician and often you have to filter the exaggeration from the seriousness. Usually very easy to do.

    Isn't this exactly what the Evangelicals have been claiming would happen all this time? That the anti-Christ would come as a political leader and declare himself as a false Messiah?

    Obama never mentions himself as any deity that was other folks saying it about him. Why would the idiot need to bring up Oblama out of the blue for no obvious reasons?

    No it does NOT surprise me that technically the EC can vote for anyone they wish.It obviously surprises you that for all practical purposes that just does not happen and there is no case that the EC completely overturned the election results.

    Because the idiot was making fun of all of the idiots that declared Obama a messiah for accomplishing nothing. He wasn’t being literal. The fact so many people still can’t distinguish sarcasm is amazing. Remember this is a normal talking guy who thinks he’s talking to his friends, not a nation. His words aren’t run through a team of speech writers like every other Potus. Sometimes it comes off as approachable and even like-able when used at the right times. And other times it’s utterly ridiculous and insulting when he’s supposed to be serious. People still after nearly 3 years can’t grasp this?

    Amazing how it took sycophants a couple of days to think up a reply to cover his ass from his super ego. Was it sarcasm when he blurted out how Jews are stupid for voting for Democrats?

    A lot of states are passing laws to make sure the nationwide popular vote winner wins the presidency.

    But that’ a side issue. The point of this thread is to point out how much of a narcissist Trump proves himself to be by calling himself the “chosen one”. And that measure is off the scale.

    No. Those are normal, patriotic Americans vomiting in their mouths.

    I have a handful of leftie friends who were going ape sh*t about this on facebook ---- even other lefties were correcting them, LMAO. This spin is so insane it is off the charts (and the left has spun some whoppers!)

    Anyone supporting this insane spin is simply illustrating they don't care about facts and context at all any more.

    It was the chosen one to deal with China. Not THE CHOSEN ONE.

    You haters can be funny though...... in a should-they-be-in-a-padded-room kind of way sometimes...... :omfg:

    That someone, seemingly rational, could possibly believe trump is smart is something I'll never understand.
    Smart people don't say and do dumb things!

    Pompous is when right-wing socialists like the fat, lazy, good-for-nothing, corporate welfare queen, Crooked Donnie, pretends to care about his poorly educated base as he screws them over with his hate-America-first economic agenda.

    Its all about education. The Jewish demographic tends to higher education and that leans left.

    Further, the religious demographic tends towards higher education as well.. Exceptions for evangelicals and fundamentalists who reject education and vote Republican.

    You could be right, God help us all. The dem party is a dumpster fire - on par with trumps knuckle dragging idiocy. We may have another sh*t sandwich to eat in 2020.

    How is that being pedantic? Although I agree with the EC, the difference is not subtle. Don't try to pretend that the other side isn't making a valid point.

    And yet trump had the same opinion of the EC not very long ago. Of course we know he's an idiot. Both sides probably experience some cognitive dissonance when mulling this issue over.
