    Trumpisms

    We really need a thread devoted so some of the more ridiculous things this man has said. This one just came across my news feed:

    I didn't see the report from the intelligence. When you read it, it is a lot different than what is covered in the news."


    Somehow, he doesn't seem to find the second sentence odd in the context of the first. Maybe he gets them read to him.
    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King

    I think it's safe to say that Trump lives rent free in your head.

    Wasn't it Trump who said that the media has been doing a wonderful, excellent, beautiful job at reconciling differences and unifying this nation so that political parties would not be set at such odds against each other?

    How crazy is that idea?

    These days - he lives rent free in the collective psyche of America.

    I would love to see when/where he said that. As far as I know, Trump has been on a tear against the 4th estate since the beginning of his campaign - perhaps before.

    I actually don't need to project - I can just read and listen to the news - follow my facebook feed - read the various sites I visit - listen to conversations in my classroom - on the train and plane and everywhere else I go - and the reality is fairly evident: Trump is a significant focus for many, many Americans - hence the observation.

    But then again - you're probably just in denial.

    What is the broader context? You need to provide links to quotes so we can see for ourselves. Maybe he was talking about not seeing it before hearing about it in the news then he read it.

    Here's a particular favorite:

    Quote Originally Posted by Trump

I don’t think anybody knows that it was Russia that broke into the DNC. She’s saying Russia, Russia, Russia—I don't, maybe it was. I mean, it could be Russia, but it could also be China. It could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, okay?

    ...

    We came in with the Internet. We came up with the Internet. And I think Secretary Clinton and myself would agree very much, when you look at what ISIS is doing with the Internet, they’re beating us at our own game. ISIS.

    So we had to get very, very tough on cyber and cyber warfare. It is a huge problem. I have a son—he’s 10 years old. He has computers. He is so good with these computers. It’s unbelievable. The security aspect of cyber is very, very tough. And maybe, it's hardly doable. But I will say, we are not doing the job we should be doing. But that’s true throughout our whole governmental society. We have so many things that we have to do better, Lester. And certainly cyber is one of them.
