    Your hero the zero mocks people all the time. But most of us agree he's not much of a leader either.

    "...the president talked about how he’s gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.
    He bowled a 129, the president said.
    “That’s very good, Mr. President,” Leno said sarcastically.
    It’s “like the Special Olympics or something,” the president said."

    Of course he also mocks Jesus, the Bible, Christians .....

    But I digress. He's not a leader etiher, but he holds the title. "Leader of the free world"
    Pitiful.

    Who is next on his list to alienate?

    How anybody in the GOP would think this incredibly immature, shameless man needs to be the party nominee for President is beyond me. With the list of groups that he keeps purposely trying to offend continuing to get larger, there's no way he wins the national race if he's the nominee. Either he's a Democrat plant who is succeeding in duping the GOP voters, or people in the GOP are just extremely dumb for continuing to support him taking away any outside of Pluto chance the GOP had of winning back the White House.

    Let's see...

    He doesn't offend women any more than Hillary does.

    Who cares if he offends blacks. They're going to vote democrat anyhow. They need to get over themselves.

    Hispanic could be a problem, but polls show his support among hispanics is no worse than it traditionally has been for republicans. A huge chunk of hispanic citizens want illegal immigration curbed, as well.

    Who cares about lgbt? They vote democrat anyway.

    Someone has to identify the enemy. Radical islamic terrorists. If muslims don't like that, they need to get over it or start helping law enforcement locate and arrest the possible perpetrators. This old "religion of peace" mantra is baloney and everyone with a brain knows it.

    He hasn't alienated the disabled anymore than the current liar in chief has.

    So why do you care, zaac? You're not going to vote for the republican nominee, regardless.

    It is breathtaking. A couple of possibilities.

    1. He didn't know this reporter had a muscular disorder--in which case his people didn't do their due diligence.

    2. He knew and didn't care.

    Either way it's a problem, but I'm starting to think that #1 is more damning for him. As President of the United States he needs to make sure of his actions before he takes them. Trump's constant, well, trumpeting, that's he's such an awesome businessman, and a great negotiator, etc. etc. looks flimsy when he makes a mistake like this, if indeed he didn't know about this guy's condition.

    #2 is a problem because he's exhibiting insensitivity, not a good trait in a leader, but also a predictable tell that opponents could exploit.

    Thread isn't about Hillary though is it?
    And we're to believe that Obama is the source of racial tensions in this country.Rolleyes

    Laughable

    Should be the GOP mantra. If you don't vote for us, we don't care about you. I love the way that folks who support the GOP are abandoning that ruse of "we want to do what's best for the country". Y'all are finally feeling comfortable in your own skins and coming out the closet as really wanting to do what's best for those who think like you.

    Has nothing to do with thread.

    The thread isn't about Obama either.

    I didn't hear of you voting for Obama or making any plans to vote for the presumptive Democrat candidate for President in 2016. But there certainly hasn't been any shortage of comments from you about either. So why do you care carpro?

    I think #2 fits with his personality and the position he's taken on many other things. Part of his appeal to a certain element on the right is that he is politically incorrect and he doesn't care who knows it. That certain element will tell you that they are tired of everyone who doesn't look or think like them politically complaining. They've gotten bolder in making the politically incorrect comments, after many years of being incited and emboldened by conservative "talk radio" commentators who do the same thing that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do.

    And I know this to be true because you hear folks constantly repeating , verbatim. the same talking points that you can hear everyday on the talk radio shows.

    The difference:

    You pretend to be what you are not. I don't.

    That has seen his popularity drop by 12 points in less than a week , I know that his supporters might not agree with this. If you were the journalist you could have been hurt by his mockery gestures. Even him he is not perfect, there is something that he could be hiding that is why not all of us like him.

    That poll is bogus, but believe what you will. Even a good poll this far out is still too far out, but Trump is the man to beat right now.

    That reporter has a tendency to be "hurtful" and a liar as well - he made up a quote from Palin's hairdresser out of thin air and bashes anything GOP. Trump can't mock him enough, gloves are off and the MSM is crying about it.
