  • Donald! Trump!

    I wish no ill on the man,

    Oh, I do! Reprehensible excuse for a human being, I hope the fleas of a thousand camels infest his asshole!

    Donald Trump is going Southsea tomorrow to pay tribute to all those who gave so much on D-Day, in that global struggle against racism and bigotry.

    There will be D-Day veterans there, but hopefully none that were captured by the Nazis. Because of course Trump, the Vietnam draft-dodger, famously said, “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured. … I like people who weren’t captured.”

    If he makes small talk with war veterans I wonder if he’ll bring up his chronic (but temporary) problem with his “bone spurs”, I’m sure they would be fascinated.

    Prime Minister is about to give joint press conference. She only has a few days left in her job, wouldn’t it be wonderful if she went full Love Actually and told the Trump what she actually thinks about him?

    She’d be instantly forgiven by at least half the electorate, I think me and my foreign born spouse would be willing to have her over for tea 😀

    in that global struggle against racism and bigotry.

    I think if you’d told the D-day soldiers that’s what they were struggling against I reckon most would have have thought you were taking the piss and laughed. I think they were struggling for survival and freedom.

    Haven’t you had enough of rewriting history for one day, Ernie? And imposing current thought on history.

    You are becoming boring now Edukator.

    instead of trying to chase me round the forum.

    How many threads have we conversed on today, two? Same re-writing history, different threads. Post your anti-EU nonsense across more threads and I’ll counter it on those too.

    edukator – I often do not agree with Ernie but he does not post nonsense. Its logical and coherent. the lexit position on he EU I believe is wrong – but unlike the rightwing brexiteers it is actually a considered and coherent construct.

    sorry Ernie if that comes over as patronising. Edukater – perhaps learn a little 😉 Listen before you shout?

    Sleeves are too long too.

    TBH it just looks like it’s not been tailored to his normal posture. Usually you’d say that’s the tailor’s fault, but I reckon it could have been cut to look good in the poses and static photos, rather than in his usual slump. He obviously doesn’t have much upper body flexibility so he tends to move and stand weirdly to compensate and that’ll tend to make even the best clothes look bad.

    FFS I’ve just seen it mefty, I never realised that he was such a fat bastard.

    After meeting with farage yesterday, Trump is now saying that the NHS won’t be on the table in a future trade deal 😂😂

    As if that wasn’t an inevitable consequence of Brexit….

    Would you object to people earning more than £100k per household to pay something for NHS?

    They do. Via tax. But you know that.

    You can imagine how that conversation went:

    Farage: You know that NHS thing you said? Well, we all know it’s true, we’d sell you it after Brexit. But if we actually told Leave voters what they were getting, most of them would be appalled and want to call the whole thing off. Would you mind awfully not saying that again?

    He’s had 6 hours & he still hasn’t deleted it

    If you read into it, the Mars plan involves going to the moon first. So it kind of makes sense. He is just a poor communicator.

    That happens a lot, people hate the guy so much they jump on little things and take them out of context (his context anyway)

    He tweeted that immediately after a fox and friends show or something on fox news where the commentator said we shouldn’t be going to the moon ‘cos we did that decades ago and should be aiming for mars

    You would have to be incredibly daft and gullible (ironically like your stereotypical Trump supporter) to genuinely believe that Trump doesn’t know the difference between the Moon and Mars.

    If you accept that Trump knows the difference but want to mock him because he didn’t specifically refer to the Moon space mission and the Mars space mission, and instead just said Moon and Mars, then it makes you look childish, petty, and more interested in school yard taunting than serious politics.

    So perhaps Trump didn’t delete his admittedly clumsily worded tweet because he wanted to expose his detractors as daft and childish.

    Believe me, I think Trump is a grade A knob and the worst person in the world right now, but even I can see what he meant there.

    Presumably not just any idiot, but an idiot so talented that he became President of the wealthiest and most powerful nation on Earth.

    An idiot who wants his idiocity to extend from Earth, to the Moon, to Mars.

    In the noble quest for other idiot life forms perhaps?

    He is not particularly an idiot tho not really very smart. He does have a personality disorder tho – a psychopath

    Ernie, if you’re suggesting politicians can’t be idiots then I suggest you try reading the papers or watching the news. Trump appears to have little knowledge of current affairs, science, geography or many other areas. His off the cuff comments and answers to questions often show a lack of understanding and empathy.

    Yeah but it still doesn’t make sense. If he has understood that the Moon is not physically part of Mars, but that going to the Moon may be part of a Mars project, why does he criticise NASA for planning to go to the Moon?

    ernielynch
    Member

    Whichever way you look at it it’s a badly worded tweet, but I assumed he was claiming that NASA was too focused on again going to the moon and back, which was done 50 years ago, and should be focused instead on using the moon more as a relay to Mars. Which by all accounts is already NASA’s plan anyway, so a daft comment from that point of view.

    Who do I trust to have a better vision of space exploration and what is required to achieve that vision, NASA, or Trump … ? 🙂

    Well NASA focuses on Luna issues, and Trump focuses on lunatic issues. They’re both experts in their field.

    Maybe this is what happens when you combine an expert lunatic with a luna space programme :

    I’m going with idiot. He was born into a very wealthy family and was a figurehead in the business which more despite him than because of him is still making money. Whereas he seemed hell bent on making losses.

    His “style” of management got him noticed by television which upped his “popularity”, he made some idiotic boasts which by good fortune, read spending a fortune, got him elected by appealing where politicians don’t appeal to. Whipping the disenfranchised into a frenzy, while caring not a jot.

    He is now surrounded by a large group of people who seem only to be making sense of his idiotic ramblings on the world stage.

    So yes a rich idiot who bought lots of power and now is worryingly in power. Bojo is a poor man’s (it’s all relative) version.

    “100 idiots make idiotic plans, and carry them out. All but one justly fail. The hundredth idiot whose plans succeeded through pure luck, is immediately convinced he’s a genius.”

    Well I can’t argue with someone who includes the word idiot in their name.

    So are we going for : Donald Trump has learning difficulties and doesn’t know the difference between the Moon which orbits Earth, and Mars the planet which orbits the Sun? For the more polite version.

    No I’m going with the informal definition of “a stupid person”.
    His tweet, as with lots of messages, tweet, texts, etc, is badly worded but in the world of fast moving media it’ll be chip wrappers within 5minutes.

    American, and now British, politics is not a meritocracy but it is definitely shaped by “men in grey suits”.

    Nah, not really, it’s just a total contradiction- “we shouldn’t be going to the moon, we should be going to mars, which involves going to the moon first. Which we shouldn’t be doing, because we should be going to mars. Which involves…

    That’s not the quote though. He doesn’t mention “going” to Mars. It is without doubt a badly worded and sloppy tweet. He should be as careful as I am when I post on here.

    Most people know what he was trying to say, even if they don’t agree. Suggesting otherwise just plays into the “fake news” mantra which his supporters are so keen to believe.
