As much as I hate the Orange Guy as the next person, this could have been a simple post in the existing post-Trump thread.

So Marton ?? all of a sudden, getting confused ??
Where's that big mouth of yours spit some fire, come on at least, try to stand behind your beliefs , statements ..
Don't you have anything better to do with your life other than constantly trying to engage people in arguments on the Internet?

"In internet slang, a troll is a person who posts inflammatory, insincere, digressive,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog), with the intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses,[2] or manipulating others' perception."

I did consider that but it did not seem to fit in the Jan 6 thread.

Pancakes I actually dont have anything else to do. Just like you I suppose ?

On my screen when I look at this forum there's a button 'reply'. And just like all of you here I click on it and give my opinion.

Of course, out of 100 people , around 50 are the panicky ones but that does not mean they are right. Or if yes then we can discuss that , can we ?

A troll is someone who's there to provoke in a spam like way .

I am discussing issues here, I can give reading material (from your preferred sources or the opposite), I can cite scientists, doctors, sociologists, politicians etc whose good work I follow and appreciate or not . . which means I actually do know what I am talking about and to a degree I might be wrong so this is why here we are to exchange opinions, views do some brainstorming .

As opposed to a narcissist who writes post after post of far-right twaddle with a few links to even more twaddle that none of us actually bothers to read as life is too short.

Re: Trump organisation indicted today on fraud charges (not Trump family)

Really pathetic. Just a million? If this is all the dirt they’ve managed to drag up on poor old DT – sorry, the petty cash of his corporate corruption? It really makes a mockery of US justice and prosecution. Let’s go back to whether Bill Cosby’s innocent, plea bargaining is obscene or do DA’s agreements have any impact on their successors…

The police murder a black man, George Floyd, over an alleged counterfeit $20 note but it is not OK to indict a white majority US corporation over fraud in the $millions.
Good to see racism is alive and flourishing.

Typical propaganda non sense.

No, George Floyd wasn't killed over a counterfeit 20 USD note, he was resisting arrest while high on meth.

Except that he was no longer resisting arrest and instead begging for his life, which the police in their adrenline rush, unfortunately ignored.

Re: Trump organisation indicted today on fraud charges (not Trump family)

Former President Donald Trump appeared to acknowledge the core facts in New York prosecutors' case against the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer even as he characterized the charges as a political attack aimed at him.
Trump told a crowd in Sarasota, Florida, on Saturday night that "every company" does "fringe benefits."

Trump didn't dispute prosecutors' allegations that Weisselberg received off-the-books compensation during his rally Saturday night. He mentioned Weisselberg's car lease, apartment and tuition payments for his grandchildren.
"They go after good hard-working people for not paying taxes on a company car. Company car. You didn't pay tax on the car, or a company apartment, you used an apartment because you need an apartment, because you have to travel too far where your house is, didn't pay tax, or education for your grandchildren," Trump said. "I don't even know. Do you have to, does anybody know the answer to that stuff? OK? But they indict people for that."

The Trump Organization's longtime chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg who was indicted has now resigned.

Lack of reading comprehension? A racist under every bed syndrome? I’d kind of understand if you accused me of unwarranted USA-bashing but rascism?
Please excuse my assumption that the point was clear: if this is all the US justice has managed to unearth on one of many DT organisations, the Orange Maniac seems to be less dumb than his looks and behaviour would suggest.
