Summit is off.



This official White House statement is a masterpiece of passive-aggressive excuse-making.

I can't say for certain who actually penned it.
But the oozing rationalization defense mechanism appears to have Stephen Miller's  DNA all over it.
For some reason, it comes off to me like someone cancelling his subscription to a magazine because their name appeared on a phishing list, but you know, the articles were cool, I dunno, maybe if they sent him another invite...

Just like it did with the Paris agreement, the ACA replacement, the wall, the Iran deal, the China trade deal...

Trumpers are just quoting Scripture at this point. "For it is written, in our Glorious Leader's Tweets..."

I guess you were never that fond of 'lots of work'.

Well, Heinz's original response was in reference to the way Trump talks... So I guess his point was that Trump is the only person to be a billionaire AND POTUS, so just maybe he talks like that because he knows something that most people don't.

Then again, I'm still convinced he's trolling us out of boredom, so...

lol at the NFL trying to appease President Shithead and him immediately going back on the attack, completely predictably





So they only have to stand?

That means they can do all sorts of things while "standing proudly"? For example...



Yeah, I can see this going great.

Talking like a moron = wealth + power, apparently.

Being a billionaire- especially one born with a silver spoon in his mouth - is points off AFAIC.

A lot of points 

ETA:  Even more especially one with a long sordid and well documented history of shady dealings to maintain and amplify that wealth.

Everyone here is missing the point, probably because of their blind hatred for Trump.

The only point was that he is the only person to be a billionaire AND POTUS, so just maybe he does know something that most people don't. But you people cannot even admit something as obvious as that. Hatred destroys the hater.
Logical fallacies destroy logic. (Or, alternatively, help it by highlighting examples of How Not To Do It)

Goat Rodeo:

Trump cancels Kim summit amid North Korea 'hostility'
http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44242558

Guess all those US/NK Summit commemorative coins were a bit premature.
I bet Kim's response (well, the response his authors will write up for him) will include something like "When the President of the USA cares no more about petty political games, Nobel prizes and his own ratings, and is ready to discuss in earnest about the well-being of the People, the Chairman of NK will be here to meet him on the negotiating table as an equal. Our offer stands".

And just like that, that little SOB will have come out on top. Great.

It's fine with me if you don't like how big business operates which includes shady things like inciting civil wars in the name of ending slavery,
The reason you remain an idiot (well, one of the reasons) is that you adamantly refuse to educate yourself in the REAL history of your nation.

lying about dictators having nukes as an excuse to invade their country and make that country safe for democracy oops I mean safe for Oil Company operations,
I'm sure you were FURIOUS with Bush back then, huh? How about your alt-right buddies? Did they take to the streets in protest?

using bankruptcy laws to their advantage and so on. 
Like Trump himself (and so on).

What I'm not okay with is you, a guy with a PhD, pretending to be smart while at the same time saying that Trump is no good at (shady) (big) business.
So you're saying what your country needed was a shady crook? Known for his ability to scam others? But wait- I thought Killary was a crook too. Hmm.

Or, alternatively, we could have a reminder on what cum hoc, ergo propter hoc means.

Maybe I have this wrong but I don't think what Trump said is attributing a false quote. It was either rhetoric or hyperbole and not a big deal.

That's the way he talks!
If that were true, he should learn to talk a different way, perhaps even the way most people talk.

Most people aren't billionaires and president so maybe he knows something we don't?
Other billionaires and presidents, who didn't talk like that, have been known to exist. So, no.

US presidents who were also billionaires? Nope not a single one, except Trump.
So you are saying Trump being a billionaire would have prevented him from becoming a president, if he didn't talk like that?

Or is the 'Trump Talk' thing, what allows him to maintain his billionaire status, after becoming president?

I wonder how we'll test those fascinating competing hypotheses...

And if they had, well then, according to Giuliani, it wouldn't be illegal. ;)

I never was a big fan of Trump but I have to respect the legally elected president.
Why?

I have very little, if any, respect for our legally elected PM.

(1) The FBI and other intelligence agencies were not "the Obama administration".
(2) People (like Page and Papadopoulos) participating in foreign efforts to influence elections don't get a pass because they're official team members of a political campaign.
(3) I think the Clintons SHOULD be investigated for things like Bill's $500,000 speaking gig in Moscow.

Don't be such a tool.
The DOJ is part of the executive branch. They were working for the Obama administration.
This is bullshit.
Yeah, the DoJ is part of the executive branch. But up until Trump, the idea of the president ordering investigations was way beyond the pale. Learn about Watergate.
Quote
According to the tapes of Strzok and his girlfriend, Obama was kept fully informed.
[citation needed]
Bullshit! Obama had full control of the DOJ with Loretta Lynch! The meeting on the plane with wild Bill should have been enough evidence to have somebody impeached.

This entire matter is a witch hunt and you need a citation to know that the tapes explicitly said that Obama was to be kept fully informed?

How the hell did you miss that detail?
I.e. no citation.

Fully informed about what? HInt: it wasn't about anything to do with the Trump campaign.  And it wasn't tapes.

What high crime or misdemeanor did Clinton and Lynch commit?  Don't forget to include the evidence.

BTW, there was no spying on the Trump campaign.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Heinz?

What was Stefan Halpar doing if not spying? I know! He was an FBI "human resource"
Indulging your trolling for  minute: The article you quoted says what he was (allegedly) doing.

If they are right, what do you see as wrong in what he was doing?
20
Yeah, it is just great that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign, right?

If it was the other way around you would be calling for an investigation and impeachment.
Did you note the part about Drumpf making up the quote by Clapper? That Drumpf was making up FAKE NEWS? That none of this paranoid fantasy of Drumpfia happened?

Yeah, childishly saying Drumpf sure strengthens your argument.
It's his hereditary name.
I don't see what its use has on the facts of the matter.

Now, if I messed around with Obama's name, with something like Obozo for example, especially when he was the sitting POTUS, I am fairly sure you would give me a ration of shit for disrespecting the president; maybe even calling me a racist. But I don't resort to that sort of childishness. Trump is your president too, whether you like it or not! You might at least try to show him a modicum of respect.

Drumpf made up the Clapper quote.
It's wrong.
Deal with it.
Don't deal with my childish pokes at the Orange Flame of Making Amerika Great Again.
Those are just sidelines.
The issue is Drumpf made up the quote he attributed to Clapper. Either because he's a liar or because he's got comprehension issues similar to Bluffy's.
And, apparently, yours.

So, putting all that aside, is Our Dear Leader's quote of Clapper correct or incorrect?
That is the question?

I really don't see where Trump is attributing a quote to anyone.
Trump said: "Trump should be happy that the FBI was SPYING on his campaign"

He didn't say that "Clapper said that Trump should be happy that the FBI is spying on his campaign"

There is a subtle difference between misquoting and hyperbole, which even I, as a non-native English speaker understand, but either you do not or you yourself are misquoting or using hyperbole.

Anyway, we know who the spy is! The spy's name is Stefan Halper, a professor at Cambridge University who has high-level ties to both U.S. and British intelligence.


Come on Heinz.
21
does trump think that if the people he hired were under investigation before they joined the trump campaign, their investigation needed to stop?
And does Heinz think that?
I'm fairly convinced that Heinz is trolling. For really reals in real life no Poe.

Oh well, I guess dave would simply call it just another variant of Trump's masterful 8-d chess opening.

It's easy to deal with such things, once one simply disengages their brain.

Weird. It was free a few hours ago.
