You just did make up the "rules" by creating a false equivalency and saying it's OK. Or should I say you're attempting to make them because no one with any sense of logic or decency would follow that 'rule'.

Suffice it to say that you're just making up crap.

These are the rules of the game. If you are an outspoken critic and publicly mock and judge others as Baldwin has done, you can expect others to respond in kind.

He railed on Trump for years; now the "Trump Team" is going to pay him back. With interest.
While you may not like it, it is the way the world works. And this is going to be the gift that keeps on giving, for Trump and his allies, when it comes to Baldwin. Some may call it karma.

It is not the way the world works: it's the way the Trump family, their followers and some people with very sick views work.

Alec Baldwin wasn't a politician railing on trump for years. He was an actor playing trump in comedy skits. We keep hearing about the "rules." What rules? Can anyone name one former president -- much less a former president's son or daughter -- that did something like donnie jr. has done?

And you have to admit, there were at least "41 times Alec Baldwin absolutely nailed trump."

And at least one time he absolutely "nailed" a cinematographer with a bullet, killing her. As I say, Trump and his followers have every right to go after him. Everybody knows the rules. We all knew this was coming.

Never mind that Baldwin himself was not responsible for that death and that blame lies on the armorer and, perhaps, the asst. director. The latter may or may not have violated a safety protocol as I think that's not been determined yet. But for anyone to think what Baldwin did as comedy skits is in any way comparable to what Donnie Jr. is doing is just unbelievable. The former is comedy and the latter is just tasteless, disgusting, money-grubbing, attention seeking pandering to Daddy. Any sense of shame is just non-existent in the Trump family. They are one sick bunch.
And that sickness is shared, in a feedback loop among a not small fraction of the citizenry, that I hope doesn't become terminal.

It keeps astonishing me this ever more rapid descent into collective depravity overtaking America.

I have to say that I find the attempt to equate the mocking of a man who has just accidentally killed another human being with the mocking of the normal (well, normal for him) behaviour of the President deeply disturbing.

I expect that many of the graduates of Trump University eagerly believe such a noble purpose is what the T-shirt sale is really for.

Are you not capable of deciding for yourself what standards to apply to your own conduct or do you think this is a clever way of not having to take responsibility for your own behavior?

Please do visit that other thread for an update on how bad your "producer" argument is.

Utter nonsense, although it does neatly highlight the lengths Trump supporters will go to to try and score cheap shots at his perceived enemies.

It's sick and disgraceful. Do carry on.

Who said they can't "go after" Baldwin? They can do whatever they want and the rest of us can think they are scum for doing so. Is anyone here trying to silence Donnie?

I never watched Baldwin do his Trump routine because at that time I hated liberals. I'd say, "**** Baldwin I don't care what he says". I've been on both sides of all of this.

Trump was so bad he showed me the error of my ways. How could I ever align myself with a piece of crap like Trump and the rest of his gang? I hated Hillary, hated, but she was right about deplorables, 100%.

Damn and I felt kinda bad making my Kim Jong Il "Awec Bawwin" joke. Thank jebus the Trumps are here to outdo me! I will never be the biggest ass in the room as long as a Trump is around (sans a few).

I mean seriously...a grown man is selling that shirt? Wow how far we have fallen are falling. I'd be SO proud of a family member for doing that. Good gawd. Some truly warped minds.

Nope. Trump supporters left decency behind a long,long time ago.

And Donnie Jr is not the brightest bulb on the planet either.
It was people in the Trump White House who gave him the nickname "Fredo" because of his stupidity.
I understnad even Donnie knows his son is not much in the brains department.

Trump supporters never had any decency. Trump attracts the worst subhuman vermin imaginable, people bereft of even the slightest shred of humanity. They make people who steal candy from babies look like humanitarians. They are the same kind of people who were attracted to Hitler.

It's like they're a cross between dogs and monkeys. Sure they have opposable thumbs but they fall all over each other to be the first in line to hump Trump's leg. Disgusting, pathetic and weak.

I don't agree at all.

People who were attracted to Hitler were prepared to put their bodies on the line for their leader, and did so in their millions.

Trump's supporters are lazy, obese filth whose main exercise is opening another beer.
