There was some chatter yesterday that the Trump supporters were staging "Look at poor me being attacked by Lefties" scuffles and posting them on the internet but,

so the Trump supporters have been learning from lefties then?

And isn't imitation supposed to be the highest form of flattery?

Dunno. Team Trump seems to be drowning it out with its rather cringey air of self-importance in that case...

Jesus, that's toe-curling.

Read the article, she did assault someone. Herself. She even managed to draw blood!

This is why children shouldn't be given scissors unattended.

You are moving the goal posts!

"draft dodger; a person who has avoided compulsory military service."

Trump is the only one?

Care to substantiate that? I've no idea what happened after the video, neither I suspect do you. I do read there have been a small number of arrests however.

Has Charles actually served in a war-zone, seen combat?



These days, the only one I can come up with is (Prince) Harry (, Duke of Sussex).


Which is really sobering, considering politicians are sending more people than ever into war-zones around the world (of which there is no shortage).

Didn't the Queen also serve?

Not on the front line, obviosuly, as women weren't allowed to do so at the time. But she did as much as they would allow her to do.

I think she's a qualified engineer or mechanic or some-such, and worked on military vehicles during the war.

Yes, she's a real petrol-head, actually.


Notable is this episode:

Was probably one of the few "freedoms" she was allowed back in the day.

Also Prince Andrew a helicopter pilot during the Falklands War in 1982, they say his chopper was
used ( as a false target ) to deflect Exocet missiles away from the Task Force.

As baboon said, it never happened, can't believe you are spreading fake news. However if it had happened (which it didn't) I would condemn it as sinking to the level of the Spanky fans.

On the same fake news theme, Fox news broadcast a segment of John Bolton and Ivanka leaving No 10 to the sound of boos (fake boos) but they were quick to point out that the boos (which didn't happen) were for John Bolton not Ivanka, or at least they would have been, had they happened, which they didn't.

To quote Groucho Marx 'Who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?'

"Sinking to the level of Spanky fans". Yet time and again we see the anti-Trump protesters behaving in this way.

I also found reids' post shocking. Just describing half the American voters as a lower kind of people.

As an experiment, just try to out yourself as a Trump supporter among your friends or at work, learn how tolerant people are and post your experience on the forum.
