Sheeple, actually. Yes? What about my comment?


I think I asked you, didn't I? Anyway... I lived and worked in Beijing and Shanghai. OK by you?
Not a "sheepie" at all 22Yards! I visited China twice but read a great deal re: China. So when did you live there/China?

Do you usually demand a full résumé from everybody you chat with on the internetz?

Funny you mention that much has changed. Indeed it has. China is far more open and transparent now than it was even 20 years ago. That's not to say it's a model of democracy, but I'd certainly take the word of any Chinese government official over that of Donald "20 lies a day" Trump.

ETA: I just saw that you've visited China as a tourist, a grand total of... twice. By that standard, I'm a world expert on the status of politics in Cyprus.

Fascinating that you will not tell us when you last lived in China...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I think I have a fairly good grasp of China and Asian politics since I was in Singapore for 10 years and only left in 2017. And as I mentioned, I never voted for Trump nor am I a "sheepie" as you describe but I have a good grasp of politics in Asia. So tell me 22Yards, when did you live in China? Why do you avoid that question?

What does it matter? Your posts are giving the impression you've got a bizarre interest in 22's life story.

Most of our members have lived in multiple countries and have differing perspectives depending on when they were where.

I believe he, 22 Yards, was the one to question me regarding my experience in China. Why doesn't he respond?

Sheeple. I told you before. Not sheepie.

I bought a sweet and sour chicken takeaway at Mr Wong's last week.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The Justice Department watchdog unveiled a report Thursday rebuking former FBI director James Comey over his handling of memos detailing his conversations with President Trump, saying he violated FBI policies.

The inspector general did not make recommendations on whether the former top government official should face any charges, and Attorney General William Barr has declined to prosecute him.

No evidence that Comey or his associates shared memos with the media that contained classified information

Contradicts Trump's frequent claims that Comey shared classified information and would go to jail.

Interesting that the content of the emails was not denounced so we can assume they were accurate

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And another one bites the dust.

"US President Donald Trump's personal assistant has been forced to resign from the White House after leaking private information about his family.

Madeleine Westerhout, 29, was abruptly removed on Thursday after the president learned she had been talking to reporters at a dinner this month.

She was drinking and bragging about her access to Mr Trump during his holiday in New Jersey, CBS News reports.

Ms Westerhout had worked with him since the first day of his presidency."

Mind you, should have known better as a PA.

Politico published a report saying Westerhout was fired because she told reporters during an Aug. 17 dinner that Trump did not like appearing in photos with his daughter Tiffany because he thought she was overweight.

Thin skinned? Spanky? Never!

Trump on CNN- " she said to me she was drinking a little bit". WTF Trump Now he paints her as a alcoholic.

Got to admit though-she's HOT!

And he complains that she revealed private info about his family!

More deep irony! I love it!

One would have thought that Donald Trump would be delighted to pose for photos with overweight people. It might distract from his own obesity.

(It wouldn't work with Tiffany, though, as she is far from overweight.)
