That’s a patently bad practice for the Democrats but it doesn’t give Trump or anyone else a free pass to support bad actors by not commenting on them. I glad to hear Trump disavowed the Duke endorsement via Twitter but I still feel he should have done the same with Tapper’s question.
Did I say I was an expert in IQ? No. It doesn’t take an expert to poke holes in an IQ estimate based on nothing but an estimate of the person’s SAT scores, which, in turn, was based on nothing but what college the person attended went to, especially when that person transferred into the college. It is a demonstrably foolish way to estimate IQ.
But if you want to believe something that is demonstrably wrong, just because it was posted on the Internet by someone purporting to be an expert psychotherapist (who did not even claim to have ever examined Trump, met him, or otherwise evaluated his IQ by any means other than Trump’s college attendance), then go right ahead.
That was what I heard. I believe it was during a rally he held Friday. The interview with CNN was done last Sunday wasn’t it? It’s hard to believe that anybody doesn’t know who David Duke is but my husband didn’t until this morning when he heard them talking about it on Fox News and he asked me who he was. Of course my husband knows about the KKK but he didn’t know who David Duke was. I am glad Trump disavowed him though.
I remember 1968 when NIXON was running for President. Cartoonist Al Capp was on the road for Nixon and he could shut down Hippie protesters easily, UNTIL some of the Hippies came in with pro-Nixon signs.
Fox News is now losing their business because they crossed the line to back the GOPe. They are owned by a billionaire socialist from Australia who has a hate for Donald and they have a political news director whose son is married to the daughter of Marco Rubio.
So strike 2 for you. First the NY Times, and now Fox News.
But as I expected, as soon as Donald got off the set with Tapper, he got updated by one of his trusted advisors and came out with this:
Hope you enjoyed your pettiness while it lasted, say all of 15 minutes.
Note to self: fireman15 doesn't like stand up with edge.
Look, I’m just funnin’ with you, zeedee. So calm down. I actually do appreciate your comments. There is nothing I hate worse than a bunch of global warming idiots using appeals to authority to make their point.
I was asked to provide a link and that was the first one I found at so I cut and pasted it. If we wanted to waste the entire day I am sure we could find lots of links on this subject. It is ridiculous however to think that someone who has been as successful as Trump is not intelligent.
If you want to find links about something that demonstrates true stupidity google Ted Cruz alcohol.
I’m sorry Vern that one went over my head.
I know you don’t care, but do you really believe that Trump, a self-professed genius, does not know who David Duke is?
Face facts. Trump does not want to alienate any potential voters, including KKK members, so despite his trying to distance himself from those evil politicians he is acting no differently than them.
(Also, the demonic-rat heroine, the pro-abortion/pro- eugenics Margaret Sanger, worked closely with the KKK. She was a blatant racist, who believed blacks were an inferior race, and should be completely eliminated.)
RE: trump should ask Jake...... did you enjoy the sex with your mother?
And if he did that, his fans would love him even more for it.
We all expected it. He changes his opinions daily.
The sad thing is that he actually needs an adviser to tell him to disavowed the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke.
And the media never demand they do so.
It’s all good. Things have just gotten so heated in this election that it’s gotten difficult to tell between people messing around and not.
Stick it where the sun don’t shine, Tapper!
He changed his opinion on Duke? He never had an opinion with Tapper. He had no information or didn’t remember, so he didn’t have an opinion. Then after he was updated, he made a statement that was an opinion. That’s called being cautious with scheming lying media who lie every day and scheme to trip him up.
But what is obvious is your stretching a nonissue into any issue that fits your mold.
> “He changes his opinions daily.”
Such BS. You have now destroyed any credibility you ever had an opportunity to gain. You are a vacuous Trump hater. Have fun with your developing ulcers.
Oh I know, and I have got no problem with your post. You made some good points. My best friend is a strong Cruz supporter and many of the people I respect here the most. Unfortunately, I think this election is going to be more challenging than expected, and I feel Trump has got the best chance of winning the general.
“And who else should Trump distance himself from because the Media Propagandists say so? Thats what good little Republicans do.”
Oh please... does Trump not have enough situational awareness about Duke (who also harbors “truther” ideations about 9-11) and enough basic good sense to simply say “I reject any association with David Duke?” And don’t insult anyone’s intelligence here by pushing the notion Trump knew nothing about Duke.
