    Right. Several bankruptcy's, several obvious snake oil scams (trump university, trump steaks), the host of a reality tv game show, and a repeatedly demonstrated inability to speak in a coherent manner. He's obviously a card carrying MENSA member :roll:

    It doesn't matter. Pollution would still need to traverse the distance between the polluters country and the United States. It has nothing to do with the relative sizes of atmosphere and ocean! In this light, you know - the actual context of his answer, saying the oceans are small is nonsensical at best. Trump is an idiot full stop.

    Do you feel MENSA members would make good Presidents? Are they all billionaires? Harry Truman was a haberdasher, Reagan a movie and Obama a Community Organizer. Do you feel any of these men were qualified?

    Do you really think O-C is stupid? Unlikely. She displayed her ignorance repeatedly but ignorance and intelligence are not the same thing. O-C ran an intelligent campaign to beat the DP insider who had been popular enough to be unbeatable through many election cycles until O-C tripped him up.

    HRC was actually more popular than Trump - not enough to beat Trump. He lost the popular vote and won the election - think about that.

    Here is another Trump haters take on Trump's intelligence:

    “I think the thing with Woodward’s book and all the other stuff where we talk about Trump, and try to just kind of (write him off), that he’s just an idiot, he’s crazy… all these names we attached to him, like he said, he’s president and you’re not. He’s so dumb he figured out how to win the White House by losing. How do you do that? That’s like, Wow!!!”

    The claim is that trump is a dumb man, not that one can't be intelligent if they are a haberdasher, movie star, or community organizer (or bartender).
    And yes I do believe that (effectively) leading the free world requires one to be closer to the right tail than the left of the intelligence curve.

    I can certainly understand why anyone might believe she is stupid.
    When she speaks the gaping lacuna of her extensive ignorance plays peek-a-boo with us.

    A few of the still thinking Trump haters have been trying to warn the others that Buffalo Drop may be waiting for them at the end of Mueller's waving field of rye. ;-)

    "In the autumn of 1995, millions of Indians flocked to New Delhi after reports that a statue of Ganesha, the Hindu deity of good luck, was drinking milk from a spoon. It turned out that Ganesha, in the form of carved white stone, was a bit porous, and he wasn’t drinking the milk so much as getting coated in it, as each of the thousands of spoonfuls trickled down his side, but a collective thrill prevailed for a while. I relate this incident because its rhythms—big news, then frenzy, then comedown—bear a strong resemblance to those of Russiagate, with each development setting the Resistance into a frenzy of milk-buying and statue-feeding that fades only after a few days, replaced by an unspoken agreement to wait for further reports on Ganesha’s movements."

    TDS gang. Cute. Does this have anything to do with the OP? Unfortunately for the country trump being exonerated of criminal wrong-doings won't magically make him smarter.

    Yes, I mean't "gang" in the cute Spanky and Our Gang" sense - not the bad Crips and Bloods sense. ;-)

    You DO realize I've said several times that he's no great communicator, right? I think I referred to it as "free association" although I meant to say stream of consciousness - *shrugs*. Either way, his speaking skills are not impressive and I've said as much so I'm not sure what you're arguing with me about.

    Well to a lesser degree, yeah. If the Moon were to suddenly vanish, we'd have huge tidal changes, the Earth would spin a bit faster so there go those 24-hour days, we'd be more vulnerable to asteroids, and possibly the seasons would get altered along with a chance of increased risk of earthquakes and volcanoes in some scenarios - BUT, there would still be weather, just different than what we're used to. No Sun? The whole shmear freezes solid and what weather Earth had would be unchanging frost.

    Had you the basic understandings you would have responded when I asked the question, but you didn't and you couldn't. You're now calling it a 'personal attack' because you still can't respond to the question.

    Pretty amusing statement since you can't prove or name one criminal act of his. But don't let the facts get in the way of your emotional state.

    "Mass is a scientific term used to describe the density and type of atoms in any given object. The SI unit of mass is the kilogram (kg), though mass can also be measured in pounds (lb).


    To quickly understand the concept of mass, think of a pillowcase filled with feathers and a similar pillowcase filled with bricks. Which has a greater mass? Because the atoms in the bricks are heavier and denser, the bricks have a greater mass. Thus, even though the pillow cases are the same size, and both are filled to the same degree, one has much greater mass than the other."

    It's not his speaking skills that are the problem per se. The real issue is his lack of intelligence coupled with obvious narcissistic tendencies (he knew more than the generals). No one is more dangerous than an idiot who truly believes he has "very high levels of intelligence".

    We are so lucky we have people who can interpret those words. The statement makes no grammatical sense. Trumpsters dive into this and 'slain it all away and say his meaning is obvious. Actually, his meaning is not obvious. The man constantly needs 'splainin' because he lacks the education required to speak fluently.

    And what's up with this assumption that if someone makes lots of money, he/she must be smart? Seriously?

    Small, is in reference to VOLUME. "Light" would refer to weight. Dense would refer to mass.

    Are you seriously now trying argue very basic english definitions to perform your mental cartwheels to criticize the man that made an absolutely accurate statement?

    He said COMPARED TO. Really, seriously, this is simple english and comprehension.

    There it is... all the mental cartwheels and mis-representation just so you can say things like "babbling" to criticize him. Its amazing to me that you have to go through all of that BS just to say he is stupid. LOL. It's unreal.

    The irony of this statement is unbelievable. This entire fake news story is a lie based upon mis-representing something he said, perpetrated by the TDS left on this forum, just so they can say "He's stupid" like school children.

    My idol? Because I call out BS when I see it? I didn't even vote for the guy, yet anybody that calls out BS such as this entire thread must "idolize" Trump. Get over yourself.[/QUOTE]

    "And when you’re talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small."

    That is a comparison.

    Jesus, are you people really this desperate? You sound like Clinton saying "well that depends on what the definition of 'is' is".

    This is comical.

    Defending an idiot under all circumstances? LOL, you are really infected with TDS when anybody that disagrees with you on a single topic is suddenly a Trump cultist who blindly defends him.

    Here is your problem dude. You don't like that somebody is calling out the BS propaganda being pushed by dishonest news media for the sole reason of calling the president stupid. Its patently false. I know it. You know it.... but you keep on keeping on with your non-sense accusing anybody that calls out the BS all kinds of non-sense.

    Character assassination attempts for anybody that calls out your BS? Seriously? Please seek help for you TDS, its unhealthy.

    Now tell us how that fact is germane to the observation that pollution moves between continents? He may as well have said, "When you're talking about our galaxy, oceans are very small" and it would have the same nonsensical meaning.
