There's a lot of them, they seem really crazy, and I'm concerned that they will try to light the country on fire if their Dear Leader doesn't win the next election. To say nothing of if he does (which i think he probably will).

You (general you) can make fun of me if you like. I don't care. I'm being honest.
He's all but said they would, in the literal sense. In the 2016 general he said that they'd riot, etc. He actually encourages this behavior.

The rural areas, Rustbelt, farmbelt, and other areas of this country have gotten a raw deal that the Dems have done a piss-poor job of addressing.

But "We're pissed and frustrated so we're gonna turn to a psychopathic manchild who's going to destroy the country and is objectively worse for US then the alternative" can flounce right off at high speed in any direction.

Uncritically swallowing and then repeating Trump's transparent lies does tend to make people think that you are a Trump supporter. Of course, in this thread you're accusing Mueller of being a Democrat, but in the Mueller thread you're calling him a mouthpiece for neocons. Have you made up your mind yet?

In politics there's no functional difference between a supporter and an apologists.

This is very true and something the Dems should be campaigning on up here. I'm forced to listen to conservative talk radio frequently while traveling for work, and there are farmers\ranchers that have called in with gripes about the way things are going. Most have had to change crops and methods of storage that's cost them a lot of money.

If you take Trump either seriously or literally, you have to come to the conclusion that he aspires to be a Dictator and Cult Leader.

//Paraphrased//

"People keep telling me that Trump is 'joking' when he keeps talking about wanting a 3rd term or to be President for life. But when have you ever known Trump to make a joke? Maybe, just maybe, the reason he keeps talking about how he wants to be President for life is because he wants to be President for life." - Bill Maher.

This is just more evidence that Maher has gone of the deep end. Listen to any Trump rally and its pretty clearly the only thing he likes as much as adulation is getting a laugh from the crowd.

Maybe they took lessons from the liberals who set fires, assaulted Trump supporters and looted. If a study was made Trumps supporters commit less crime of any description than their liberal counterparts.

I don't get the joke. What's funny about Trump being President for life? Or is this one of those "Russia, if you're listening..." comments where he claims it was a joke and also claims he was serious?

That explains his Drain the Swamp laugh line. I mean no one could possibly have taken it seriously, but it got a good laugh so he kept the joke in.

Do you type this with a straight face? There's no way this is for real, and it's got to be poe just for the sake of arguing.

The Trump supporter that sent bombs to Dem candidates alone trumps anything any of the Dem\Liberals\Antifa have done. That's just one instance.

I'm not saying Trump is consistent, its just absurd to ask, "When have you known Trump to Joke?" As divorced from reality as Trump even.

Of course Trump isn't consistent. But other than him using the "but it was just a joke" excuse, I can't say I've seen him tell a joke. I know he got a whole bunch of foreign leaders to laugh, but he wasn't joking, and they were laughing at him.

Considering what he looks like, I'm surprised that he has survived his own presidency so far. President for life?! How many of you think that he'd survive till 2024?!

His idea of a joke is best seen in his twitter where he comes up with all kinds of ways to insult people. What can we say republicans are the toadies to trumps bully finding the way he insults women vastly amusing.

I'm surprised he lives through each night. His arteries must have more fat in them than a Southern Baptist church potluck. Mosquitoes that bite him get diabetes. That orange color isn't fake tan, it's bile fleeing the liver in despair over its impossible task of digesting all he consumes.

Smug trolling, yes.

Anything an actual human would call a joke, no.

He's not never even come close to anything kind of self affecting humor. I've never once seen him make a joke about himself.

I'm convinced. Hillary Clinton should be removed from office of the President immediately. Someone get on that... holy crap that was quick. It's like she was never there.

For the last three years or so the lies seem overwhelming and without reasonable motive. I honestly can't tell what they're thinking.

He stuck up for nazis after Charlotsville. His own staff had to explain to him who the bad guys were.

He was a MAGA fan and Soros hater who thought Trump wasn't going far enough in ridding the country of The JewsTM who control everything.

If that's your criterion all of a sudden, please enlighten us: which 'liberal' politician gave their blessing to the violence you spoke about in the OP...

Of course not. 'I am the least anti-Semitic person that you've ever seen in your entire life,' - trump. He's the world record holder for non-anti-semitism.

He's quoted as saying "Black guys counting my money! I hate it. The only kind of people I want counting my money are little short guys that wear yarmulkes every day.", praising jews for their affinity for money and accounting (or was he referring to their honesty? I can't tell, but high praise nonetheless.), so that's even more evidence for his record.

“You’re not going to support me because I don’t want your money. Is there anyone in this room who doesn’t negotiate deals? Probably more than any room I’ve ever spoken.” - trump, 2015, at the Republican Jewish Coalition, once again demonstrating his high regard for the natural negotiating strength and inclinations of jewish people.

Do not be swayed by all the haters suggesting that the god emporor in any way influenced or gave his blessing to people like Bowers who said "There is no #MAGA as long as there is a kike infestation.", before 11 killing people.

He's not never even come close to anything kind of self affecting humor. I've never once seen him make a joke about himself.
He can apparently be self-deprecating, according to the people Wolff spoke to in Fire and Fury. Maybe that changed when he became POTUS or at some point before. I certainly don't see much of it in his tweets.

Maybe it didn't fit the Wannabe Dictator Strongman role he's slipped into

This is neither a Stormy Daniels thread or one concerning the border wall, my good man.

I'm not bothering to read all the subsequent pages after reading the OP's initial post. If I've ever seen a troll post, this is it. This is my one and only post in this thread.
