I agree Libtard is not a joke, it is a blend of the word liberal and the slur retard and is consequently an unpleasant term.
This. It's a pejorative implying liberal = stupidity or wrong thinking.

I find the term snowflake to be a weird one: it's denigrating uniqueness. Seems to be praising the herd.

Fragility and evanescence may be more to the point...

Yes, it is the point, but devised by individuals without a fine tuned appreciation for nature - or language. Libtard is generated in much the same graceless spirit.

I believe it's derived from bleeding-heart liberal.
Here's a story on the term's origins - no idea whether it's true but I found it an interesting read.

I'm aware of all the synonyms and related adjectives. I still think it's ... meh. I'm not certain that either fragility or evanescence are bad things... in certain contexts.

This exactly.

Oh I know what it means, what it references, who it is designed to pull down. Then there's "bleeding-heart"... "liberal" must be a scary word for a lot of people. It's a shame.

It's a bit of an acquired taste, though.

We do not make fun of Trump
He does it himself, we simply report it

For example
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

This is the time for Mexico, with the help of the United States, to wage WAR on the drug cartels and wipe them off the face of the earth.
We merely await a call from your great new president!
2:28 PM · Nov 5, 2019
This is the guy who claims not to start foreign wars and to bring the soldiers home

Meanwhile in a major blow for Trump and the GOP

Quote:
U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland appointed by President Trump revised his testimony to lawmakers in the House's impeachment inquiry, saying in the latest version that the president’s dealings with Ukraine amounted to a clear quid pro quo.

He said Trump withheld U.S. military aid to Ukraine in an effort to secure investigations into the 2016 election and the president’s political adversaries, according to a transcript released today by Democrats conducting the impeachment investigation.

And now
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

So sad to see what is happening in New York where Governor Cuomo & Mayor DeBlasio are letting out 900 Criminals, some hardened & bad, onto the sidewalks of our rapidly declining, because of them, city.
The Radical Left Dems are killing our cities.
NYPD Commissioner is resigning!
3:05 PM · Nov 5, 2019
Reminds me of the very old joke about a lorry load of Viagra was stolen.
"Police are looking for hardened criminals"

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I wonder if Mr. Trump is aware that the Mexican Cartels that ambushed the women and children were using US weapons smuggled south of the border.

And that the gang problems in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal results from the US weapons smuggled north of the border.

So what.
Not much different from the Clintons, the Kennedys, or the two Bush (three if you wanted to include Senator Prescott Bush, Bush 43's dad).

Or would it be different this time because, well, Trump? If so, why?

First he would be re-elected.
Then she would be kind of re-elected.
That would be a miracle.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump got kicked in the teeth in Kentucky and Virginia yesterday.

But then again, the Fake News Media would find a way to twist crushing GOP defeats in the light of Trump's shenanigans and his ongoing impeachment hearings into something to do with Trump, wouldn't they.

Quote:
#ElectionNight Won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, including 5 great candidates that I spoke for and introduced last night. @MattBevin picked up at least 15 points in last days, but perhaps not enough (Fake News will blame Trump!). Winning in Mississippi Governor race!
Apparently nothing happened in Virginia. Maybe Trump will figure it out when he sees the blue glow on the horizon from the porch of the White House. And he seems to have problems understanding polls, which showed Bevin leading Beshear in Kentucky by five points or more, or at worst, tied with him (in one poll).

Remember this woman? She was fired for flipping the bird at Trump.



Yesterday she was elected Loudoun county supervisor in Virginia, beating the Republican candidate.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

In the "Entirely Bleedin' Predictable" category Iran starts the process of Uranium enrichment, well done donny, bra-effing-vo

Second place in the same category goes to Ambassador PaidForLand remembering that actually military aid to fight the Russian invasion of Ukraine was indeed contingent on campaign help. One can see how that would slip his mind.

So that's I think 10 witnesses now confirming the quid pro quo which sets us up for the interesting spectacle of Senators needing climate-denier levels of delusion to continue to support Spanky.

get your popcorn orders in early, before China start paying tariffs on it

The scary thing for the GOP is that Trump won the Kentucky State by 30 percentage points but now the GOP governor lost to the Dems despite a Trump rally there and the VP Pence taking a promotional bus tour with the GOP governor last week!

As others posted, there is now a steady drip of Trump admin people not only confirming the whistleblower complaint but adding new stuff like the telephone call transcript left out key phrases

Hillary
- was FLOTUS for eight years
- was senator for two(?) periods (8 years?)
- ran for POTUS yet lost in the primaries (lost to Barry)
- was Secretary of State (4 years)
- ran again for POTUS but lost against Trump

... and may run yet again for POTUS, as rumor has it.

But she's a Democrat so that must be fine.
