The top comment on our "sister sub" is a doozy:
This is hilarious. Trump is baiting them and I think these athletes are going to fall for it hook, line, and sinker. These athletes will kneel and keep speaking out and all that, alienating more and more people and giving Trump easy electoral victories in 2018 and 2020.
The best course of action for the left would be to ignore, but they do not have the self restraint.
This could be the dictionary definition of projection.
The guy who inherited his wealth from his daddy calls people who work their whole life to earn what the market has determined they are worth privileged. Laughable.
Right wing logic: All protesters are jobless bums! Wait, that person has a job? FIRE THEM! They're disrespecting America and that should NOT be tolerated!
11-D chess right here, obv. /s
Literally throwing a tantrum.
Imagine being Merkel, Putin, Modi, Xi, May, or any world leader and reading this. Keep in mind this is coming off a UN appearance where Trump acted like a teenage strongman.
I'd be laughing my ass off so hard.
As a die hard cavs and Lebron fan, I can't believe this asshole president is making me kind of like the warriors.
Maybe Priebus is cooperating with Mueller...
I haven't thought of Priebus forever. I bet he's in the same camp as Spicer.
If Spicer is getting some heat you know Priebus is getting gounded by Mueller as well.
There can be no bigger insult in the Trump World
IMHO "dotard" is a pretty damn fine put down.
Has a ring to it.
Dotard is good for one distinguished world leader to address another distinguished world leader. But, among those who are now serving, or who have served, our Toddler In Chief being snubbed on Twitter by someone so absolutely obsessed with Twitter is the biggest insult of all.
Im not going to believe anything until Sept. 30Th passes.
It's not over until 2018, and even then only if the Democrats win back the house.
Do not claim victory until Oct. 1
unlikely just by looking what seats are up for elections. If dems won all dem leaning seats that are contested and all 16 seats that are considered toss ups, they'd gain 15 seats.
They'd need to win 12 republican leaning districts on top of that to win a majority. It's possible, but needs work.
Meanwhile, Dems/Progs have 25 seats up for re-election in the Senate to the republican's 9. Most of the 10 seats considered in danger are held by democrats. Republicans taking control of the Senate is a serious risk right now. People will have to go out and vote hard.
Fake news. Trump didn't remain silent about the last time Erdogan sent his thugs to beat the hell out of American citizens.
...He called Erdogan and apologized to him for the inconvenience.
Trump was NOT silent.
“Thank you very much. It’s a great honor and privilege -- because he’s become a friend of mine -- to introduce President Erdoğan of Turkey. He’s running a very difficult part of the world. He’s involved very, very strongly and, frankly, he’s getting very high marks. And he’s also been working with the United States. We have a great friendship as countries. I think we’re, right now, as close as we have ever been. And a lot of that has to do with the personal relationship.”
Donald Trump, 9/21/17 Edit: https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/09/21/remarks-president-trump-and-president-erdo...
What a fucking sack of shit.
This is really startling. If this happened to Canadians and Justin Trudeau said nothing the entire country would be in outrage.
This should be getting far more coverage than it has, c'mon America.
Maybe next time Erdogans bodyguards will try to beat up some 2nd amendment enthusiasts and they'll just let freedom ring after.
Well, it seems that he knows how hated he is and thinks the solution is more security paid with tax dollars.
I hope that swine is living in fear.
Three and only when travelling to public events.
I love this new trend of late night hosts just taking the gloves off. Samantha Bee in particular is the best thing to happen to TV in a while.
People who have the wealth, position and privilege to speak up for those who don't are part of the problem when they remain silent. I hope more people are realizing this fact.
Same thing with John Oliver and sometimes, he's not on every week :(
Samantha Bee has one major problem. She's only on once a week.
I am sure he gets her and Ivanka mixed up all the time ...
My username is coming true
Not at all. One of them he sleeps with every night and the other one he's married to.
He thought she was on a business trip to bring back some of that world famous Nambian covfefe.
Oleg Deripaska, an aluminum magnate
Fake news, obviously. Aluminum is non magnateic.
I hope Mueller finishes his investigation soon the suspense is killing me.
"I can only get so erect"
Mensch is a hack spinning tall tales, but sometimes the darts actually hit the board.
Oh look Dump is a scum bag who knew
Look, you can like the guy that's your god given right. But by now you better damn well know he is an asshole with little regard for others.
That's because Donald Trump has the copyrights to brain damage
I am the most compassionate, no one is more compassionate than me. I love you all, aren't we great?
