Trump Is Making Our Entire Culture Stupid
Every day he tweets something stupid and then his lackeys and bootlickers go out to the world and try to pave the stupidity over. This is the daily progress of the presidency of the United States Of America. Some of the public have become so used to it they now take it for granted.

It is not at all unreasonable to say that President* Trump says something stupid on twitter EVERY DAY, and then there is a back and forth between some in the media and various Trump defenders as they hash out just how stupid it was. (or to the defenders, "wasn't". )

There are Trump lackeys like Kayleigh McEnany whose sole purpose seems to be to come on cable news and try and clean up Trump's daily messes. If she is getting paid by piecework she is getting rich. 

Tonight her assigned role was to "clean up" this tweet from Trump.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump








I never called Meghan Markle “nasty.” Made up by the Fake News Media, and they got caught cold! Will @ CNN , @ nytimes and others apologize? Doubt it!






================================


Mc Enany's challenge , which she perkily accepted was to make this sentence inoperative  -  "I never called Meghan Markle “nasty.”"



There is an audio of Trump saying, exactly, "I didn't know she was nasty", referring to Markle. 


It certainly is possible to claim that Trump didnt intend to say Markle is personally nasty, but rather her previous comments about him were nasty, in his opinion.  But the fact is he did say "I didnt know she was nasty".  So why bother to deny you said it? 


Because you are Donald Trump.  Every day he tweets something stupid and then his lackeys and bootlickers go out to the world and try to pave the stupidity over. This is the daily progress of the presidency of the United States Of America. Some of the public have become so used to it they now take it for granted. They don't ask "why is the president calling a young woman who is now a princess in the UK "nasty" in the first place?  Why does he constantly get involved in these ridiculous imbroglios ?


Trump has lowered the discourse of the presidency off the bottom of the chart.  This morning he attacked the mayor of London based on his height (the man is 5'6"). Then someone will comment on Trump's boorishness and Trump's bootlickers will span out across the mediaverse and tell everyone that either they didnt hear what they heard or "who cares", "the economy". 


Meanwhile people get dumber every day, thanks to our president. 


It doesnt have to be this way you know.

I tend to think social media propagates and amplifies stupidity. Especially if that where people get their information from. You never see tweets (or at least, not nearly enough) talking about or giving math lessons or discussing science. It's all about what one is doing or what the Kardashians are up to now, or some nonsense like that.

I know what he said and what he may have been referring to. Because he is such a poor public speaker and so miserable at explaining himself, he referred to the woman as nasty. Then he tries to rub the publics nose in his stupidity by advertising it on twitter. He does this sort of thing every single day. He is an embarrassment to this country. Everyone of intelligence knows that.

He specifically referred to her as nasty.  What is it about him that prevents you from believing the bullshit he spews, even when it's available on audio?  He said, "No, I didn't know that she was nasty."

Just because he lies about what he said doesn't mean his supporters should do the same.

Gaslighting has become a policy for the GOP under Trump.

Gaslighting is a tactic in which a person or entity, in order to gain more power, makes a victim question their reality. It works much better than you may think. Anyone is susceptible to gaslighting, and it is a common technique of abusers, dictators, narcissists, and cult leaders. It is done slowly, so the victim doesn't realize how much they've been brainwashed. For example, in the movie Gaslight (1944), a man manipulates his wife to the point where she thinks she is losing her mind. 

If anything positive comes from the Trump administration I hope that knowledge and understanding of the Dunning Kruger effect and gaslighting are along with them. If people know what gaslighting is and how it works then they are less susceptible to its effects.

I seem to remember a lot of rightwingers piling on the ridicule for people predicting a sure HRC win in 2016.  One would think that they'd recognize the folly of doing the same thing now, especially this far ahead of the next election.  But, I guess the temptation was just too much to resist.  I wonder if they remember the old adage about what goes around comes around.

It's actually impossible to make a judgment without some form of criteria.  Choices made with no criteria are "random", which is a different thing.

  Bothsiderism is lazy at best and self-righteous smugness at worst. 

I'm sure you would like to think so.  You have those backwards, BTW.

But your motives are transparent.  You post history indicates clearly your zeal for antagonizing anyone with differing views than your own but a lack of effort required to engage in thoughtful conversation.  People with extremist views generally have lower intellectual capabilities and are targets you can handle.  Moderates are smart enough to view issues from multiple perspectives, and generally smart enough to be beyond your reach.  The best evidence of this is that you now find yourself in the pathetic position of having nothing more to attack than moderation itself.

In words you'll understand... you're only looking for a fight and can't find anything better to fight about than someone not wanting to fight.  It's like a scene from a bad movie about a high school bully.

Most likely the reason many folks are drawn to him, stupidity seems to be like a magnet of late.

It would be rather easy to blame Mr. Trump for all of the ills of America, but then it would be wrong. Not saying that he hasn't made it chic to be dumb, but it certainly did not begin with him.

I don't think its going to come down to the candidate this time around , but it will depend more on the overall party platform that the candidate will be running on, the candidate can only do as much as the party platform dictates with its support of certain issues , and that's not even talking about what happens in a divided congress.

People will again end up voting their own interests on issues that matter to them , their own personal "yardstick " they use to evaluate the different candidates and their positions .

Right now none of the candidates show up on my yard stick, from either party , but not everyone that's going to run has announced yet , and its still early in the process.

well john I am entitled to my opinion , and I did start of by saying it was simply my opinion, shame you didn't ask why I came to that opinion .

Out of the past 10 presidential elections , I have voted for the person that won exactly 5 times, those times I didn't vote for the winner(3 of those times including the last cycle I voted for a 3rd party candidate) , it sucked , no one likes to think they voted for a loser,and ego and pride , sometimes makes people either rethink their choices , or double down on a losing game  out of pride .

How much power does a president actually have over anyones day to day life? IMO very little to none, that cant be gotten around.

So ego and pride is a simple answer , even though it is a little more complex than that. In my opinion.

This is what Dumbya called the soft bigotry of low expectations (and he was one of the best examples of low expectation).  But Dirtbag has lowered that bar so deeply that he can (and does) cover himself with his own shit on a regular basis and his followers cheer for it every time.

I always enjoy watching a Trumper calls someone a moron and than dives right into the shallow moron end of the pool.  Here we have someone who put up a quote about Markle  but then refers to "merkels" in his own comment.  So he's either incapable of distinguishing Megan Markle from Angela Merkels or is so inept that he couldn't even get the name right in the space of the minute or so between reading the quote and writing the comment. Either way, we can all see how misplaced the epithet was.

Unlike some people here, I like to be accurate as much as possible. Frankly that it why I am so good on forums like this. You are always better when you are accurate. 

YOU said "a reporter asked trump if he heard merkels "nasty comments" about him."  "Nasty comments" is what you quote the reporter as saying.  I listened to the video that you linked to, the reporter in question never used the word "nasty." Nope. Didn't happen. Trump is the one who describes people as "nasty" and he is the one, and the only one, who used the word in this instance also.  

Back to the drawing board with you Magic 8 Ball.

The Sun : "Now Meghan, who is now the Duchess of Sussex, we've given her a different name, she can't make it because she's got maternity leave. Are you sorry not to see her? Because she wasn't so nice about you during the campaign. I don't know if you saw that."

Trump:  "I didn't know that, no. I didn't know that. No. I hope's okay. I did not know that, no." 

The Sun:   "She said she'd move to Canada if you got elected. It turned out she moved to Britain."

Trump:   "Well, that'll be good. There are a lot of people moving here. So, what can I say?   No, I didn't know that she was nasty. "

The Sun:   "Is it good having an American princess though, Mr. President?"

Trump:   "I think it's nice. I think it's nice. I'm sure she'll do excellently. She'll be very good. She'll be very good. I hope she does."

 Frankly that it why I am so good on forums like this.

" No, I didn't know that she was nasty. "

I suppose you can forgive "the most stupid" for believing that considering that is what the President said whether or not it's what he meant.

In English grammar , a subject is one of the two main parts of a sentence . (The other main part is the predicate.) The subject is sometimes called the naming part of a sentence or clause. The subject usually appears before the predicate to show (a) what the sentence is about, or (b) who or what performs the action.

" No, I didn't know that she was nasty. "

The subject may be just a single word: a noun or a pronoun. In this first example, the proper noun Felix is the subject of the sentence:

  • Felix laughed.

In the next example, the personal pronoun he is the subject:

  • He laughed.

https://www.thoughtco.com/find-the-subject-of-a-sentence-1691013

Adjectives are words that describe the qualities or states of being of nouns: enormous, doglike, silly, yellow, fun, fast . They can also describe the quantity of nouns: many, few, millions, eleven

So in that sentence, disappointing Donald said " No, I didn't know that she was nasty" making "She" the subject and "nasty" the adjective to describe the subject. The fact that he made the assessment that "she was nasty" based upon something she had said in the past is immaterial.

So factually, the half-wit Donald Trump did call Meghan "nasty". The excuse being used by his sycophants to defend him appears to be that Trump is so stupid and so bad at grammar and communication that he really meant "Meghan's 'comments' were nasty".

when you figure out the difference between calling someone nasty and commenting about their nasty comments.... get back to me about those so-called facts.

no one has to agree if her comments fit their definition of nasty or not.

he never called her nasty = fact

he was talking about the bitches comments.. not the person.

The left using the public education system has been engaged in a systematic dumbing down of America for many decades.  The people know nothing of our founding principles and thus no longer believe in the importance of individualism and the sovereignty of the individual. Instead they willingly embrace being slaves of the state and no personal responsibility or accountability 

thats how we get all these Marxist statists in government from both parties.

8.1.1  livefreeordie  replied to  Tessylo @8.1    4 months ago

The truth really seems to bother you

do you deny we live under statist forced collectivism and redistribution of wealth?

do you deny we have a progressive income tax and estate taxes which Marx stated were essential to destroy capitalism?

the 16th amendment imposing the income tax turned us from sovereign free citizens into subjects of the state. When the state determines how much of what you earn that you can keep, you are no longer a free person.

when we redistributewhat others have earned and give it to those who did not earn it, how is that not Marx’s “from each according to their ability, to each according to their need”

Most of Marx's steps to transition from Capitalism to Communism found in Section II, Proletarians and Communists of the Communist Manifesto have already become law and policy (words in parenthesis are my comments)

Chapter II. Proletarians and Communists

The Communist revolution is the most radical rupture with traditional property relations; no wonder that its development involved the most radical rupture with traditional ideas.

But let us have done with the bourgeois objections to Communism.

We have seen above, that the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy.

The proletariat will use its political supremacy to wrest, by degree, all capital from the bourgeoisie, to centralise all instruments of production in the hands of the State, i.e., of the proletariat organised as the ruling class; and to increase the total productive forces as rapidly as possible.

Of course, in the beginning, this cannot be effected except by means of despotic inroads on the rights of property, and on the conditions of bourgeois production; by means of measures, therefore, which appear economically insufficient and untenable, but which, in the course of the movement, outstrip themselves, necessitate further inroads upon the old social order, and are unavoidable as a means of entirely revolutionising the mode of production.

These measures will, of course, be different in different countries.

Nevertheless, in most advanced countries, the following will be pretty generally applicable.

A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes. (eminent domain)

Abolition of all rights of inheritance. (estate tax)

Centralization of credit in the banks of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly. (Federal Reserve)

Centralization of the means of communication and transport in he hands of the state. (FCC & Dept Of Transportation)

Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a         common plan. (AIG, GM, Dept of Agriculture, OSHA, EPA)

Equal obligation of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.   (unionism)

Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries; gradual abolition of all the distinction between town and country by a more equable distribution of the populace over the country. (urbanization)

Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production, etc (John Dewey a communist and founder of American Public Schools -Dewey considered "the great task of the school" to be "to counteract and transform those domestic and neighborhood tendencies" which he specifically and accurately identified as "the influence of home and Church." In order for Dewey's "progressive" agenda to advance, the moral authority of "home and Church" would have to be undermined and replaced with the authority of the state.)

“The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital. (homosexual marriage, feminism)

“seek to end all religious belief and practice (which is a common sentiment here by the      socialists)

I’m glad I did it andwould do it again.  Only totalitarian governments control the decisions families make on education and work

I quoted you. So I take it for granted when one sentence later I mention education that we are talking about what I quoted. How would most kids get educated if it were not "free"  (paid through taxes) for most people. Do you think everyone has the luxury to home school their kids? 

The reason we outlawed child labor is because greedy factory owners and mine owners would work 9 and 10 year olds until they fell over. Most people want something better than that for their children.

A little truth from 1850 against the forced statist collectivism of socialist control that youand others love

Frederic Bastiat in his famous Treatise, The Law in 1850

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain"

Private education and home schooling. Statist believe that only the state through forced collectivism can accomplish anything good.

Private education is fine for those who can afford it but most people cannot. Most private education comes with religious opinions attached. Homeschooling is a failure except for a few cases where the parents are well-educated themselves. We have public education because it is the most pragmatic way to properly educate a population.  This is why post k-12 education should also be subsidized because K-12 isn't enough education in the 21st century if the US is to remain a first world nation and an economic power.

again on child labor, it’s not the role of government to determine what is in their best self interest. I believe in the sovereignty of free individuals and families to make those decisions, not a totalitarian state

A child doesn't have the power or knowledge to determine what is in their best interst.  They are to be in school learning instead of being abused as underpaid labor in a factory. A rational society cannot allow a business to abuse children for their goal of profit. 

Nobody is enslaved to the state, despite your libertarian hyperbole. We are rational and pragmatic people who understand that we are part of a much, larger interconnected and interdependent society and it is in our best interest to cooperate. The government exists to further that goal of supporting the society for the well being of the people.

The "luxury", certainly.  It's simply a financial decision people make.

The "capability", certainly not.  Parents are the least qualified people to educate children.  Every education statute since the Massachusetts Bay Colony General School Law of 1647 has been a steady march toward saving children from the stupidity of their parents.

This same group of people told us that we should accept the results of the Meuller investigation, then didn't when it didn't go their way.

Many of the above mentioned people are career politicians who claim every problem is because of Trump despite the problems existing long before Trump coming into the political arena.
