    I guess hearing it from his mouth wasn't enough for you guys. Sounds pretty clear to me. He said it and you know damn well he knew NOTHING about what you have posted. I give up carry on.

    He said something wasn't adding up and that someone should look into it.
    Never made an accusation or reached for a conclusion.
    I really don't see it.

    The problem with what Trump said is that, intended or not, it comes off as a threat. With or without the second part.

    Knowing Trump, his history, and the reason he was impeached, it's not unreasonable to consider it a threat. It would be nice to have an adult in the White House who doesn't need people kissing his ass about everything. Some people don't think they've done a great job, it's subjective, oh well. What happens if "they" aren't appreciative? Is he going to give priority to those who are?

    lol with people lining up in stores to loot the toilet paper is it so hard to imagine that people w access to face masks might grab a few?
    everyone that ever worked anywhere took the pens and paper home at times
    you don't think janitors and low level employees, even nurses and doctors might be grabbing a few for panicked friends and family?
    i get that people don't like Trump but geezus its been 3.5 years of picking on every minute detail of everything he says and does!
    the impeachment process was a total joke and he was acquitted
    it also sets a precedent whereby whoever isn't in power can be shut down by partisan nonsense and the country gets forgotten in the process
    anyways its gonna be a cold day in hell when a doh biden can beat the man

    I would bet my life that the actual flow of supplies are not conditional.
    American lives are at stake and whether you think the best or worst of POTUS, there is no angle where allowing people to die plays to his desires or advantage.

    Maybe his language is too tough or his diction alarms people....
    (although this is arguable too, as Adam Shciff felt he had to make up bogus dialogue that never happened to make his point in regard to the impeachment you mentioned)
    ....but he's standing up for people who are working hard.

    It's amazing. I never understood why 'supporting the troops' got mangled by both hawks & doves since 9-11. No anti-Vietnam war activists tried that move in those days, yet now ... if you are disingenuous enough, you can bullshit ANYTHING in any manner.

    Now it's deifying medical workers & first responders. Hosanna... none of them may be questioned or doubted. They are Jesus, Moses, and & Siddartha wrapped up in a big Gandhi robe, right?

    :crazy:


    So ... to @Doughty8 ... you loathe Trump. Just loathe him. But don't tell me, who can read, that him indicating medical staff MIGHT be culprits in the WIDESPREAD disappearance of supplies of late. Who is a more likely suspect?
    A) a person with a hospital pass, familiarity with staff, key exits & ways to offload swag that's in high demand?

    OR

    B) a person with no badge, clearance, or any of the knowledge of the ins & outs of a complex medical building ... in other words, Non-medical civilians.

    Judas priest, man. I get that Trump is an obnoxious, dickish lout at worst, but who else in the blue fuck is most likely responsible for these medical masks & other resources going missing? Do you suspect that Irish gangs or korean shopkeepers are roaming the alleys behind Cedars-Sinai and loading up boxes of rubber gloves?

    Wtf, man. Just pick a solid argument. This one is pure shit.

    I don't listen to Donald Trump.
    I put it on for my mom, about 10 minutes or so.
    If you listen to a talker talk you can sit there and point to all the times he misspoke.
    Because the more you talk the more you err.
    And he talks a lot.
    If all you care about is picking at what he says while ignoring what he actually does then thats your way of doing things.
    I talk a lot, its annoying to a hell of a lot of people.
    Most people aren't pricks tho and so they don't look at everything I say and pick at it to find the gnat in my soup.
    They either aren't in the mood for soup and walk away or they drink my milkshake and understand that it has some extra protein in it.
    When im around pricks I don't talk as much.
    If im running up against pricks that just want to goad me into argumentativeness it is best not to talk to them.
    If Trump triggers your pricklyness then maybe you are just a prickly pear and need to look in the mirror so you can see the nopal on your forehead.
    I know when something is triggering me it is usually because I have a scar there from getting too close to pricks.
    Everyone is scarred up. You can't social distance or politically correct yourself enough to survive with all that scar tissue.
    You need to toughen up the skin or you will distance yourself out of existence.
    Cuz mental health is going to go south and not all of us are prepared to deal with our own shit, much less the masses around us.

    It's not that I cannot see where @BlueMouse is coming from.
    It's just impossible to know somebody's true motives.
    So if you have a less favorable view of Trump, you will probably think his motives are suspicious. I get it.
    I just don't have those suspicions in regard to his words and actions about Ukraine, Puerto Rico, or Caronavirus like some people do.

    He was completely right about PR hoarding aid (apology Alex Cora? Racist)
    There is little doubt of Ukraine/Biden corruption.
    And people are probably stealing masks.

    Me, with a more favorable view, believe he's fighting for what's right.
    Others, with a less favorable view, believe there's sketchy stuff there.
    Fine. Just know the best you can do is win the court of public opinion. MAYBE.
    But legally, there's nothing there.

    It would be nice....
    Nice is nice. Its not real though.
    Specially now.
    Facts are nice... and can be manipulated to suit feelings or bullshit.
    Truth is kind... because its real.
    It's love... and love bites sometimes.

    You want to believe all that you just said.
    I don't believe that Trump is going to give NY less help because the politicians in NY were not nice to him.
    But it is very hard to help someone who is being hostile to you.
    Try it in your life. Im sure you have experienced it.
    No matter how much you love your job as a nurse and how much dedication you have to your craft and to caring for your patients... when you have a cranky old asshole that will cuss you out and call you a nigger or a spic or a fat bitch or whatever. The level of care you give might not be as high as when you are caring for the sweet old lady in the next room. Not because you want to treat them differently, but if you are tired and have to remember a lot of things you may more easily forget to get to the prick that bites your hand every time you try to feed it.
    Its human nature.
    You are nice to everyone because its your social duty and politically/personally expedient.
    But you are kind to those who love you.
    Because love begets love.
    If Nancy Pelosi is talking shit and making up lies about me and trying to get me fired and trying to turn people against me on the daily... maybe I don't want her around when im trying to get shit done.
    Go watch the old Ten Commandments movies.
    Even Moses grew tired of all the bitches that came along with him when he let the dogs out of their cage.

    i go through it w my mom every other month
    she talks too much shit and i walk out for a day
    then i come back to fulfill my obligation to her and our family
    have to do our best to tune out what we don't like and look for the good
    unfortunately there seems to be no ability for people that hate Trump to do so
    and its just not reasonable to say he hasn't done anything good

    exactly,
    most of us are not trump lovers
    he was the clown on tv that somehow became president
    but im not going to bitch about what he says
    ill bitch at what he does or doesnt do
    like whenever someone brings up the kids in cages... i don't argue against them
    i don't say well Obama did it too!
    that's a bitch move
    i let them say what they say because its not my job to defend trump
    im not his proxy
    i don't identify with him or anyone else in power
    i have to deal with whatever it is that they DO
    i do not have to care about what they say just because I dont like it
    because I also know that we all say things and reserve others
    those we talk to do not have all the information we have in our heads when we are explaining shit
    so you are bound to be misinterpreted
    people need to cut folks slack when they don't understand the person
    your first idea should be that YOU possibly misheard or made a mistake
    then you have to have grace and your second idea should be that possibly the other guy made a mistake and just said something wrong by accident
    he got a fact wrong, numbers wrong, gave speech to a dumb thought that flew into his head after a long hard day, etc...
    all you have to do is ask the person what they meant when they said X
    then if they tell you that yes, they wanted to be an asshole and offend you on purpose
    THEN you may want to check your feelings
    this fixes 99% of problems people have with each other
    most of the time its only the 1% thats the problem
    you deal with that and don't sweat the little ones

    i can speak openly about issues i disagree w him about
    one of the largest is having his kids suddenly in the white house, we didn't elect them
    but i agree w actions over every word he says publicly
    it just sounds petty and predictable jumping on every word for 3+ years
