Seems like those unfriend and block buttons really are the only defense people have when you go through their claims and start refuting them one by one.
Here we go again.
Athena Brown Last one. After this you can tell me how I didn’t read any of your links, didn’t respond to anything you said, “just won’t’ listen”, lalala – pretty much what everyone else says once everything has been systematically gone through and addressed and they’ve got nothing left to say.
>> *Sixth Link*
> First “insult”
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
^^^ Now, explain to me how this means “Mexican’s are rapist”.
Because I’m reading here that there are rapist in Mexico, and Mexico’s economic and judicial policies are creating an environment where their criminals are wanting to cross into the United States.
Trump is acknowledging that some of these are good people. He’s said utterly nothing about Mexicans living in Mexico.
Now, if you know of ANOTHER source where he said “Mexicans are rapist”, please show me and I’ll change my mind. Or if you can show me 2 other examples, anywhere, at any time, from any place you’d like, of Trump being either racist or sexist, I’ll change my mind then too.
I guess until then, because I’m daring to ask the questions and have an open mind, that I’ll just have to be a racist.
> Second “insult”
Sit down, you weren’t called
^^^ Uh… okay? If you weren’t called and it’s not your turn, then you can’t just talk anyway because you’re a special snowflake and you feel like it. Raise your hand and wait your turn like everyone else.
Go back to Univision
^^^ ……………. and?… like, did this guy actually work for Univision? I’m not seeing the insult here.
Do you think Trump was communicating with security to have you thrown out?
^^^ If you are disrupting the conference, then yes, Trump has every goddam right to throw you out. You can’t stand there and ask questions OVER another reporter who is ALSO trying to ask a question. For f*cks sake.
> Third “insult”
[mocking disability] – we talked about this one. Scroll up.
> Fourth “insult”
^^^ [Total and complete shut down of Muslims] – we talked about this one. Scroll up.
> Fifth insult (no air quotes this time)
“He’s not a war hero” [John McCain, who was captured]
^^^ Okay, legit point this time. That was out of line. This definitely counts against Trump.
See if you found a BUNCH of them like this, that would be a persuasive reason to change my mind and switch my vote. But finding a legitimate problem once in a blue moon, when you compare this to Hillary, makes it no contest. Trump is simply the better choice by a long shot. I can put up with a president who occasionally says something off base.
> Sixth “insult”
[Trump makes a beautiful point here that he’s only against ILLEGAL immigration]
^^^ Why is this one even included in the list? This isn’t an insult at all. This is actually helping Trump’s case.
> Seventh and Eigth “insult”
[Insulting Megan Kelly and Rosie O’Donald]
^^^ So Trump can talk smack about literally every man he sees, but when he insults a woman, that’s sexism?
Sorry, I think men and women are equal. If you’re going to work in politics, you’re going to have some heat thrown your way. Now if Trump can insult literally all the male candidates over and over and call them all sorts of vicious names, and no one bats and eye, then he says something about a woman and that’s “sexist” – you’ll get why feminism is no longer about equality. If you need special coddling, you’re in the wrong business.
> Ninth “insult”
“I won’t do an interview unless they pay me!”
> 10th “insult”
[Insults Rand Paul]
^^^ Thankfully Rand is male. If he were female, that’d be SEXIST and it would mean he HATES WOMEN.
Annnnnnnd that last post didn’t make it. When I tried to hit enter, it came back with that “cannot post” message, and of course at this point I know exactly what that means. I’m basically saving just about every thread I get into at this point.
