And when she sobers up she will somehow convince herself that it was all the fault of those damned 'foreigners'.

I know the "Rolling Stones" magazine isn't the best political magazine, but they did have a funny story about Bill Maher's Real Time.

I've written two BSc final essays for people and they passed... I don't have one myself.

 

 

 

And Ms Conway seems as intelligent as my dog. Bowling Green massacre, Ads for Trumps daughter on TV.. real effing intelligent.

 

 

 

Again degree /= intelligence, as much as you want it to.

 



Do you see the irony in a thread that is currently discussing honesty, that you admit to being complicit in someone fraudulently gaining a BSc?

 

 

 

I really don't give a crap about your irony... I also don't run, or advise someone on how to run, a country.

JayADee: Meanwhile in NZ ''A 27-year-old woman has been arrested following an alleged racist attack on a woman in Huntly which was caught on video.

Mehpara Khan, 28, was on a road trip with friends yesterday when a stranger approached the group, who had stopped for a toilet break in Huntly.

Khan said racial abuse was hurled at the group and a can of beer thrown at them.

Police said in a statement this afternoon that "following an incident in Huntly" yesterday, a woman is in custody. She is facing charges of assault, assault with a weapon, and using offensive language.

She will appear in Hamilton District Court tomorrow.

Police said that after being provided with video evidence, staff "acted quickly" to make an arrest.''

As reported by the Herald and Stuff. 👍

 

 

 

Surely not in NZ?

I apologise unreservedly for touching a raw nerve. I couldn't care less who you are and who you 'helped'. The chip you bear for intelligence vs qualification is, sadly, something you don't bear alone. The point MikeB4 was making is that Ms Conway is no slug. She may be misguided, but she isn't a hillbilly without a formal education either.

Edit: And perhaps revisit the FUGs about personal abuse.

I just heard someone on CNN (Wajahat Ali) say that when Trump spoke to the CIA, he pointed out that it was raining before he started, then the sun came out while he was speaking, then it started raining again when he finished. He could have been making a joke, of course, but the suggestion is that he was completely serious. This in the context of his mental health, which is starting to be questioned in the Senate.

This is getting really silly now. The press need to start reporting professionally and without bias. The psychiatrist that are making diagnostic statements not having met with the man over several sessions are acting unprofessionally and breaking a long standing rule (Goldwater). Senators are not the ones that should be making such diagnoses either.

Trump doesn't like CNN, so watch out for the banning of CNN soon ...

His opposition are beginning to look like they're clutching at straws. It started with the protests, then SoCal threatening to leave the US ...

There really is no reason to be clutching at straws. There are enough hair raising things happening as it is.

 

If you voted for Trump, you might want to question how appointing "the swamp" (bank executives, lobbyist etc) is "draining the swamp". I would also have a long hard look at how he will do on the other promises that he has made.

 

Wether you voted for Trump or not, things like attacking judges that opphold the laws that the Trump WH are breaking does not show someone that has any regards for laws at all. Expect to see more of that coming from Trump. There must be quite a few conservative Republicans that has a hard time with Trumps "governance".

 

 

 

And then we have him lying about voter fraud. I would like to see anyone show any proof of the 3 million fraudulent votes he is claiming.

 

Oh, and I thought Republicans had a problem with flip-floppers. Just look at this 180 degree flops on things like China, Nato, United Nations etc. Not bad things in themselves, but its something that Republicans would have attacked like hungry wolves if it was a Democrat doing the same thing...

He's the most disgusting human I've ever come across. But my point is Americans wanted him and still want him. (Or at least half of them). Does that mean I'm disgusted at Americans? I dare not hold that thought ... 

 

However I don't fear him. If he wants to destroy the world so be it, maybe then America would wake up ...

Almost half of the ones that voted. Somewhere around 20% of Americans in total.

 

But Trumps approval rating shows that the majority does not approve of him.

 

So the facts do not support what you are saying.

 


Edit: Oh, and the newest approval rating shows him at only 40% approval. I think we will see that trend continue.

I just find it staggering that 40% of Americans approve of his performance as President. That's a lot more than actually voted for him.

Look at the trend, won't be 40% for long...

 

 

 

 

I agree with you, I am confused as to how its possible for so many people to be conned like they were in the latest election. I saw this train wreck from miles away.

Maybe not, but I don't see him going anywhere.

 

Everyone predicting he will be out in 12-14 months (or less) are the same ones who said he'd never get the Republican nomination, and then said he'll never be President...

 

In today's world of short attention spans, I predict that the outrage will soon turn into quiet acceptance.

 

He's there for his full term.
