Of course, all Trump-supporters would love it if everyone just ignored Trump's continuous lies, blame-shifting, and bullying, etc. But I'm sorry, I think that only a complete idiot would play "deaf, dumb and blind" to his behavior.
Sigh, 4 years in and still people donít realise that President Trump supporters donít take President Trump that seriously.

Yeah..... I dunno. I know a number of them and they think he's fabulous. Of course it may well be my biased sample of Americans.

I know that Crenshaw can't do it now. I seriously doubt Biden will make it. If he does, Crenshaw will have it easier. I don't have any stakes in it, but Trump another term and Crenshaw right after could keep our situation here stable, imho.
Whose situation? Switzerland, CZ, you personally?

That's not a good thing, mate. It's fine not to take what Ricky Gervais says seriously, but Trump is a president. He's supposed to be taken seriously.

Why?
Because that’s what Trump did to Obama regarding his birth certificate. Relentlessly. (See Pancake’s Post which explains the situation clearly)

It’s bullying, despicable and hurtful. I like you too much to go on with this ruse but what I did to you is exactly what Trump did to Obama.

Now, can I be a mod too? ��

It is justified, seeing the spotty background that Obama has. Being a U.S. citizen is a prerequisite for becoming a president. Living in Switzerland isn't one to being a mod. And no, you cannot be a mod.

And not just Trump- but the vast majority of Republicans. They would have rather scuppered the country than let him succeed, in anything. The vitriol was vile- and often open, sick, racism. I have relatives who swore Obama was an Al-Quaida spy and plant. And it was relentless- as for the vitriol aimed at Michelle, it was even worse.

Now you have spoilt it.
What is spotty about a birth certificate

How can we take you seriously any more?

Never considered you one of the tin foil hats.

At least as mad as the morons who gave Obama a Nobel Peace Prize.

It was part of a long term cunning plan to upset Trump by not giving him the Peace Prize.

I didn't say his birth certificate was spotty, I implied that his background was spotty and therefore, subject to suspicion.

Looks like bleach sales are growing exponentially
"Bleach Salesman Who Wrote Trump About "Miracle Cure" Investigated by Feds in Miami"
And a radio speech from the same salesman

Luckily bleach is banned in Switzerland!

So I canít be a mod because you feel insulted? Yup, Trump would have had the same reaction.

An unfounded and unproven smear campaign started by Trump which he continually fuelled with his demented Twitter rants knowing the racist hatred he was stoking amongst his rabid conspiracy nutjob followers.

I'm not insulted. This is a prime example of association fallacy, that is why you can't be a mod.
I appreciate Trump because of Obama - I'm a bad mod
You cannot be mod, because I presumably feel insulted - That's Trump like

I can certainly live with that. I can also live with some naivete even. But it's not just the off the cuff remarks that his base "tolerates", it's the bullying, the misoginistic and the racist comments too. If I tolerated that I would have to call myself either machiavellian or hypocrite.

That's a very strange emotional outburst. Why assume that some of them aren't? In the same logic you could also assume that all presidents must be jackasses and all their supporters are unhealthy individuals one way or another. Thankfully we know what they say about assumptions.
And you are assuming that you can judge all laywers by your friend. Same same.

Judgy tone again from you. Interesting.
