    Actually it wasn’t. I didn’t belittle you at all. In fact you’re one of the better posters here imo. Believe it or not, I’m genuinely curious how seemingly rational people come to the conclusion that trump has an ounce of intelligence.

    Somehow he managed to retain wealthy status his whole life, while plenty of true morons blow it all. He also managed to beat, quite handily, the most career politician alive, that had most of DC, the media complex and entertainment, in her corner. A real moron couldn’t have done that.

    You want to know what happens to a real wealthy moron when you give him his shot? See Beto. Now THATS a moron. :)

    As idiotic as Trump can come off, who makes mind boggingly stupid decisions, the guy always seems to be one step ahead. Over and over again. That isn’t by accident. If Trump was truly stupid, he would have blown all his money decades ago and certainly wouldn’t be president. Really. Somehow the guy gets **** done. Don’t ask how. :)

    I didn't feel belittled; Your shot was at Trump. He has had great success in business, entertainment, and politics. His strength is being able to recognize weaknesses and the ability to capitalize on them. The overreach of the other party made him the lesser of evils and got him elected.

    Thank you for the compliment. The feeling is mutual.

    The reason it's pedantic is because the electors go there to vote as the people of their state instructed them to. Therefore, except in the case of faithless electors, they are just carrying out the results of an election, not independently deciding on the president themselves. So the idea that the electoral college decides who is president is misleading, and mostly a technicality.

    He said he is the chosen one. Stop making excuses for the delusional psychopath in the WH.

    Have you ever considered the possibility that you take things too literally? He was just joking around. I found it to be kind of funny actually.

    Then Hillary supporters should encourage her to run again. Maybe this time she'll get it right.

    I don't think he is socially challenged, but his narcissism/ego clouds his judgement and his words, where too often people are scratching their heads wondering why the heck he said such things.

    You are loving that trump is pushing unconstitutional laws, that he is begging the FED to step in because he policies are now actually starting to have an effect, that he is ballooning the debt, that he is defunding scientific committees, that he is blatantly lying to the American people, or that he has destroyed what was little of the worlds respect for us and our institutions. Which part are you loving exactly?

    Hey, as long as he is trolling the people you don’t like that’s all that matters right?
    You cons live in such a sad shallow world full of animosity and spite.

    Your ilk pointing and cheering at the disgust this man causes is sure to cause some animosity. Y’all have created it. But I hope spite isn’t someone that is engaged in, it’s destructive for the country.


    Also noticed your poor attempt to ignore what you quoted.
    There is a word for that, a few of them actually.

    This is a textbook example of projection ^

    Exactly.

    It's like folks on the far left live in their own worlds with absolutely no self awareness. They cry about hate, but spread hate tenfold. They cry about animosity and spite, when their animosity and spite is magnitudes worse.

    The far left are becoming masters of irony, hypocrisy, deflection, and projection. Projection especially.

    And they pretend it is only the conservatives they're attacking, but they'll attack independents and moderates too. The party has moved so far left that anyone to the right of Bernie Sanders is "alt right" :roll:

    Yeah, sure, whatever.

    What does "operation of the mind" mean? Are you a brain surgeon as well as a clairvoyant?

    Do you mean those images that expose of ignorance and bigotry of American-hating bigots and plutocratic socialists like Crooked Donnie?

    So, you can't answer these simple questions but you can post stupid images. Just as I thought.
    • What degree do you have?
    • What company or companies do you own?
    • How many people have you employed?
    • How many jobs have you created?
    • Have you ever created products/services that other people could use?

    He does no cocaine. I'm glad that the Chosen One is a very stable genius with and unusually large brain, that puts America First!

    I hate to be the one to put this to you, but your sense of superiority is misplace:

    All The People Who Think They Are Better Than You Are Much, Much Worse.

    Never before have so many snobs had so little to be snobbish about. It’s not like the ruling caste that turns up its collective snout at the people who actually make this country work has a CV full of achievements to back up its arrogance. Our 'elite' is anything but. It’s a collection of pedestrian mediocrities who inherited our civilization from the people who actually created it and fought for it, and like every spoiled child who was handed free stuff by his doting mommy and daddy, our elite is resentful and obnoxious.​

    We’re ruled by a bunch of Veruca Salts.​

    But Trump is hacking away at this Unelected Administrative State and returning America to Government, Of The People, By The People, and FOR The People!

    I think one would have to be somewhat of a narcissist to run for president.

    Yes, but he is conning Americans out of less than the previous conman.
