https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/4...ht=voting+2016

TBH I don't think a real poll would have been all that different. Half of people dgaf and are just here for the lols. If the joke is getting old, well too bad, you're going to have to deal with at least two more years of this.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

So he keeps saying $91B to Puerto Rico but the best I can tell itís more like $300M

And in the 9 days following the hurricanes, Texas got $100M in aid and PR only $6M or 6% as much even tho it was more devastating.

Yeah I was thinking this. I mean it can make sense if your extracting parts in other programs, maybe, possibly. But for government docs?

There is no barely any ongoing conversation. Whenever one starts, it will be interrupted by a bot tweet from the stupid president, so the discussion has to be halted for the mandatory 3-5 sub-Daily Show level slams. Rinse and repeat forever.

Get rid of the bot. People can still post tweets in the thread the 5-10% of the time when they're actually newsworthy.


The bot is the only reason for the thread

Bot should 100% stay but the undertitle should be changed either to "No Collusion" or to "I'm President, and you're not."

Sorry this thread doesn't live up to the high standards of posting links to hate groups on Facebook without commentary.

yeah, that's fine. seems like there's a small majority in favor of the bot. I think for as long as it exists there will always be a ton of bad, performative 'Hey Mr Brain Genius, are you aware...' drumpfposting following after it, but I should prob just use the ignore button more I guess.

I think people have noted trunpís aneyeurism on Puerto Rico is he is conflating damage estimates with relief paid out.

I know this doesnít need to be said, but the guy is not smart. He believes aid to Puerto Rico is foreign aid.

1. Kafja is right
2. I vote for separate threads. Important tweets can still be quoted in this thread.

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

More from Rick Reilly’s book

Quote:
In another story, Trump is playing with former Lakers coach Mike Dunleavy against two other players. Unhappy with Dunleavy’s approach shot, Trump nudges Dunleavy’s ball onto a more favorable spot on the green. (Trump strategically kicks so many golf balls that the caddies call him “Pelť.”)

Dunleavy doesn’t want the help. He wants to play by the rules. “That’s why he’s an unemployed coach and I’m worth $13 billion,” Trump says.
I feel like that is Trump’s highest fake valuation of himself ever. He must have really been feeling the brand that day.

Quote:
Trump, Reilly reports in Commander in Cheat, plays golf like a maniac, hitting off the tee first and then racing down the fairway in his cart. This tic allows Trump to cheat, as he often simply plays someone else’s ball, or kicks his onto the fairway. In one story in Commander in Cheat, Trump’s playing partners watch him hit his ball into the water. But when they reach Trump, they find his ball has conveniently turned up on the fairway. “Must’ve been the tide,” Trump says.
Quote:
One of Reilly’s most fruitful obsessions is poking at the number of club championships Trump claims to have won at courses he owns. (At last count, Trump claimed 20.) In one memorable case, Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey, club was holding its senior club championship. The same day, Trump played a round at another course, Trump Philadelphia. According to Reilly’s sources, Trump took his Philadelphia score—which was probably fudged, in any case—transposed it to Bedminster, and declared himself Bedminster’s club champion.
Quote:
Every one of Trump’s most disgusting qualities surfaces in golf. Racism: When playing golf with Reilly, Trump handed $100 tips to Chilean course workers and says, “Now, those guys are the Donald Trumps of Chile!” Ecological terror: A caddy tells Reilly that Trump’s golf cart once contained a can of red spray paint, and that Trump marked trees his balls hit with a red “X.” The trees were removed the next day.
Donald Trump’s of Chile.
