All antics used to drum up support from the far right then work his way towards the middle, which worked. Lets not forget that prior to the birther thing Trump was mostly viewed as a democrat so he had to reinvent his charachter, like a good actor. So to win the right he started with the tea party.
If you try to win the conservatives with an excentric behavior, poorly applied tanner and random miss-typed tweets, does it show that deep down the right/consetvatives are more tolerant than the progressives who have democracy and tolerance tatoed on themselves?

No, it shows that for them, their politics is all about showmanship and fluff rather than statesmanship and policy.

Seems to be the new bandwagon the "edgy people" want to jump on.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
You don’t understand Korean culture very much. All of those agreements are pretty much worthless. Having a current U.S president show up and shake hands on NK soil is more progress than all of those agreements combined. Sure nothing was signed, yet. But in the eyes of Koreans this was more progress than any piece of paper. You must first build a foundation of respect and Trump visiting NK is the most respectful thing that has happened in my life time. This is how the Koreans would see this event. He showed up and showed respect. First step towards real peace accomplished.
In international talks, the participants talk to counterparts on the same hierarchical level only. Ministers talk to each another, and heads of state (presidents and prime ministers) to each other. Usually there's no mixing of levels. Thus presidents don't talk to ministers and vice versa, and neither will ever talk to an usurper or otherwise unrecognised head of state.

Thus Trump's meeting Kim tacitly recognises Kim as head of state, and by extension the claim that NK is a country of its own right. Obviously that means it is distinct from South Korea.

If anything, Trump's visit is detrimental to any reunion process (not that any such appears to have been even remotely likely beforehand).

As for the attack on Iran:
While it was good of Trump to cancel the attack, it should never have been issued in the first place. You effectively laud him for solving a problem he created minutes or hours before because he didn't one of the most central aspects of that attack.

Yes, the culprit behind the DNC leaks was an insider and was upset about how they pushed out Bernie Sanders. Seth Rich was later murdered (official report was died from robbery) and found with all his possesions, cash, jewlery etc, which makes it not a robbery. The DNC is blocking any further investigations, but they are still ongoing.
Spreading these tired old fictions does nothing for your credibility?

It is not even possible for the DNC to block further investigations; they do not own the DOJ. Try asking Trump how easy it is to block investigations

Rich's parents condemned the conspiracy theorists and said that these individuals were exploiting their son's death for political gain, and their spokesperson called the conspiracy theorists "disgusting sociopaths".

The PUSA never "orders" an attack. He is briefed and given options. He considered option A then refused. He did not create this at all.

Wow. Then you tell me why he was gunned down and left for dead (all on video) yet its still called a "robbery". This was a textbook hit, pure and simple and bright as day. And yes you can block, or at least delay an investigation if you have enough power, just ask Trump.

LOL. So, you think he's a pretend racist. That makes racist statements and governs like a racist in order to appeal to racist voters... and this is somehow a defense of him? It's a (nonsensical) distinction without a difference.

The Muller report explicitly refutes that conspiracy theory.

Looks like it was scrubbed from the internet. I actually saw the video a few days after his murder. It was not a robbery as they kept walking and didnt even try to go for his Rolex, gold chain, gold ring and I believe he had a few Bens in his wallet. This neighborhood also has the most amount of security cameras in D.C. Its kind of like how the Pentagon has 200 cameras yet all we get is a blurry parking gate camera of 911. Oh well, thats D.C. Inbred mafia at best.

An average of two people per day are shot in DC, you tell me why

Can you tell me why there is not even one single crumb of evidence to support your fiction?

Jermome Corsi explicitly retracted the story he wrote that started the conspiracy theory and apologised to the family.

Yes you can scrub the internet. I have seen a ton of info relating to the NK-SK issue magically disappear. One of them was a recently deceased POW that was passed through the DMZ in 1998. It was on the internet, now its not. Lots of eye witnesses including yours truely. I saw it but I dont have a link for it. Doesnt mean it didnt happen.
