    Have you ever seen or heard a Donald Trump comment about something and wondered whether he's just testing his followers to see just how outlandish a thing he can say before they'll call "BS" on him?

    No but I am well past tired of the left leaning MSM making up shit and then pretending to report it on Trump.

    Why, did he again say something you disagree with? I don't really follow him or what he says so you'll have to fill Me in.

    I don't think it goes quite that far, but it's clear that he knows the talking points - he either listens to right wing radio or hears about it - and is purposely regurgitating them as red meat for the "base".

    What I can't imagine is that he's gaining any new converts - and if the Dems can get out the vote in '18 and '20, the GOP will not be able to keep up.

    You don't get it at all do you left wing loons? He's an asshole but he's our asshole that took on the media and the R establishment no holds barred.

    And he has turned the Washington political establishment upside down. You should have someone on your side D's who are willing to do the same. Yeah there are days when he strokes me out. There's many a morning when I for example wake up and go HE SAID FUCKING WHAT ON TWITTER?

    :lol:

    I've always believed in strong opposition and with the US Republic with only two party rule we have a real problem now. The Democrats cannot stop insulting voters and citizens if their life depended on it and they are absolutely alienating well half of the voters at least.

    And the D's refuse to stop insulting the American people. It's fucking nuts to witness.

    First, the word I used is "outlandish" not "disagree," though Trump does say a lot with which I do not concur. For examples of things he's said that I find outlandish and that I do not agree with, check the remarks (and linked content) in this post: Debate Now - Is it reasonable to think Trump suffers from mental illness? NPD, dementia, something else?. That's not a complete list, but it's as good a place as any to start.

    Can't argue. They clearly refuse to learn. It must be because they're just so damn much smarter than everyone else.

    That bothers me even more, in fact. It does because it suggests he's being led rather than leading. The POTUS should be giving the media the talking points, not the other way round. Perhaps sometimes he does, but most of the time, it seems he's echoing them rather than establishing them.
