Even if it's real, as some response to a political attack, I wouldn't argue that it's not tacky, but I would argue that it's quite a bit different than doing it becasue a Nasa astronaut corrected you on a trivial misstatement.


By the way, my implying it might be photoshop (it's not - see how easy that is !), it isn't half as bad as TPB suggesting a swastika at a Trump rally, caught by local news journalists, is a Soros plant.

We know for a fact that HRC and Soros open society clowns sent agitators to Trump rallies, some of which were dressed as bernie supporters and they were discussing other "props". Dressing like bernie supporters is the only one I remember for sure feom the wikileaks though, and they followed through w it causing enormous chaos. Do you deny this?

Makes sense they'd send swastika carrying clowns too.

@Marcus - I do think you have some balanced posts/comment that are correct about Trump's behavior (not many about policy, but not all are wrong - deficit you're right), but I think this one is pure garbage. His index finger is slightly extended. In no way is this a blatant or even subtle flip of the bird.

You're also assuming he's even listening. I frankly think he was bored and may have been doing "locker room" antics with someone in the room he knew was off camera IF this was intended. Either way, NOBODY would know except for Trump and you know he's not going to admit he was flipping off a female astronaut. He'd just lie about it like all politicians (left or right) and frankly most humans would if they think they've been caught for something so juvenile.

I personally don't think he was doing what you're saying. Getting worked up over something sooooooooooooo trivial is laughable even if he did it intentionally I guess is the point.

Who knows, perhaps Trump was actually looking around to flip off the staff person that wrote his incorrect statement about the first women to do spacewalks. Still a douchebag move.

Marcus never watches the Right Side Broadcasting pre Trump rallies, where idiots show up in Nazi Jackboot uniforms, then try to cozy up to a group of MAGA card carrying Trump supporters, and get chased off. They most always admit they were paid to show up.l

He has self control, so I disagree there. He knows what he's doing. He trolls the media constantly and they continue to bite. He knows his "perceived" lunacy is what is making the media money (it's never been about "journalism" ever - it's about selling ads) so he keeps doing crazy things and what seems to be stupid shit. He knows it generates them money and all it does is keep his name CONSTANTLY in front of everyone. There is no such thing as bad publicity or whatever the saying is.

You hit the nail on the head:

Even on the remote chance that he did do it on purpose, whooooo cares! You’re burning calories that aren’t helping you.

You may like it. But many of us are ready to go back to someone that at least seemed above average in intelligence and possessed some minor degree of decorum.

Come on. I suppose you're a fan of blowjobs, in the White House, out of wedlock? Is that decorum? How about Bush lying about WMD's and claiming victory at the start of the cluster fuck in the ME he helped create because Daddy fucked it up? Is that decorum? Obama, the cig smoker and another war mongering SOB? Is that decorum?

decorum - noun
de·​co·​rum: propriety and good taste in conduct or appearance

Stop acting like any of these people are above the human race. Politicians by definition are the opposite of decorum. I've said here I don't like Trump's behavior, but who cares when everyone is swimming in shit anyway. Trump at least acknowledges the shit instead of pretending it's not shit.

There’s no room for decorum in a knock out drag off war. Only kill or be killed. That’s what Trump is dealing with. You don’t come at a man with a sword and complain when he shoots you with a gun. Unless you’re a fucking idiot Democrat. Then you do all that and a bag of idiot chips.

The story of the past year isn't Trump or Brexit or the NBA selling out to Chicoms while being all F the Police Social Justicey Wokey Doke at home.

It's that the Yellow Vests are now almost a year old, and the French police - from a nation quick to buy into and slam any US police behavior at home or by MPs abroad - are unbelievably brutal and neither the French nor Western nor US Media gives it anything but the least scrap of attention.

And it all started with a commuter tax imposed on working people who can't afford to live in the most modest digs anywhere near the jobs.

You're mistaken. I get it's the President, but it is not their private business anymore as public servants. Smoking is awful and I didn't even know Obama smoked and I thought less of him after finding out. Smoking is a trashy habit and is awful for a sitting President to be doing given the lung cancer risks regardless of party affiliation.

Infidelity in the White House? Are you seriously defending that? I don't care that it happened, people cheat and get blowjobs, but that's the complete opposite of decorum. For obvious reasons, we don't have access to the White House. But it's technically public property that is taken care of by US the taxpayer. Not on my dime. Get back to work.

I don't like Hillary and never real have, I still think if a real man wants to cheat they should just get a divorce and have fun if it's not what they bargained for with the wife. It's cowardly frankly. Fucking dick move and in all honest I kind of felt bad for her. My guess she knew he was after that shit, but put up with it for the political gain, so don't feel all that sorry. They're a fucked up family for sure, opposite of decorum.

If you sign up as a private citizen to do public work, assume your privacy is gone. Past, present and future.

Follow up to my comment. This isn't a defense of Trump either. This is simply stating that Presidents aren't perfect. For fucks sake everyone on this forum doesn't have decorum here or in their public life I'm guessing. With Trump, I'd say the fact that he keeps people guessing what his next outrageous move is, might benefit him. We'll see. Time will tell.

I can deal with it though and not continuously get freaked out over it. Things aren't that bad.

Tulsi is outspokenly against entrenched corruption like the Clintons, but she defends Joe Biden. My opinion is that she is really running to be on the ticket as Biden's VP.

I don't trust polls anymore. Not saying some can't be right, but I don't see how Joe Biden could be the nominee at this point. Even prior to Hunter's shit coming out. You have to at least be palatable to an independent, which I would consider myself. I'd never vote for the guy regardless of Trump being incumbent. Career politicians scare me.

The whackiest polling has Klobuchar and Tulsi all in the 1-3% range. Klobuchar is about as exciting as plain toasted Wheat Bread, I have not seen or heard from a single Klobuchar supporter anywhere, IRL or Twitter or anywhere else. Of Tulsi and Yang and Bernie there are many.

Polls are lies, they are propaganda.

I remember when Ron Paul was running in 2007. I'm an electrical engineer in Silicon Valley, it's pretty easy to setup a poll. You send a cookie and attach it to an IP address to prevent double counting of votes, and you record the frequency of counts from an IP address. Part of polling, is research statistics, not just people's favorability for a candidate. We know what we're doing now.

The polls were skewed by who happened across the poll of course, but MILLIONS voted for Paul but in "official national polling", he never showed up. Corporate media would ignore his name when he won a straw poll or come in second place. The Daily Show used to make fun of Fox news skipping over his name when Jon Stewart was the main host.

All corporate media is propaganda, all of it. Every bit of it.

Yep. Including Fox.

Much of the TDS has more to do with the Media losing it's power and influence. We're seeing it with the NYT Board of Editors putting out opinion pieces about how "Public Servants" can and should oppose and resist the policies of a democratically elected executive. We're seeing it with Youtube's new algos reducing views to independent content creators from Pewdiepie to Sargon to Razorfist, while ramping up hits to failing CNN and partnering with Vox and Vice (and destroying their brand in the process).

The one thing Trump has done, a horse that cannot be put back in the barn, is exposing Corporate Media and hastening their destruction.

The Powers-that-be are pining for the loss of the false fraudulent consensus they built over the past 70 years by marching pretty much lockstep on policy issues, with a little fake fighting over cultural issues and some celebrity gossip for 'safe' controversy.

Interestingly, the biggest losers of all has been Conservativism, Inc. of the Kristol, George Will, Noonan, Jonah Goldberg, and Jennifer Rubin variety. It's been illustrative to see how much they've dumped positions they used to support and joined with Establishment Neoliberals in trying to dethrone Orange Man Bad and push the Status Quo.

I believe that they believe that once the Trump Era is over, they will be able to corral the Trump coalition around Mittens somehow. That's gone forever.

I scarcely watch it much, but my wife does. I ask her when the 'beaver patrol' is on, and she gets mad and says: "You can't see anything!"

Agreed. That is uniform for the Western world these days, in other countries they are funded by taxpayer money so they are even more arrogant. They are losing their master of the narrative status and this is their last fight. I also remember Ron Paul being systematically suppressed and smeared by the media, he never had a chance to begin with.
