So what? I’m okay with criticism. Just not ‘either way‘ criticism.

And I agree with S2, Trump will likely speak to the nation tonight. Despite lefties telling him to be quiet.
Should he project STRENGTH through his utter weakness? The guy is an abject failure at everything, and everything the man touches dies, including this great country. There are a lot of leaders failing right now, but only one has the buck of this country's abject failure stopping at feet.

Wake up.

He tear gassed a peaceful protest for a photo-op, so it went exactly like he wanted.
Tear gas is a chemical agent banned in warfare by international convention, so it should only be used on people who pay your salary when absolutely necessary.

That photo op was an embarrassing disgrace. The man continues to hit new lows.

It's pretty clear already that he has failed this crisis, just as he has failed all of his previous crises.
Right. Walz did all he could, but with what Trump did there was no chance.

I just watched it.

"Is that your bible?"

"It's *a* bible."

That's one of the funniest exchanges I've ever heard. I'll be laughing at that for literally years.

He denigrated the church and he denigrated the Bible. For a photo that reminds me of when the local paper runs a picture of the returning high school letterwinners and everyone tries to "out tough" the other guys.

Federal police tear gassed peaceful protestors so the President could go to St John's and he didn't even pray.

I'm reminded of Matthew 6:2

No respectable person supports the riots. Your hated adversaries here sure don’t. I’d say the riot support demographic is pretty small, in general. But sure, slyly (not) juxtapose that right next to something your hated adversaries strongly support. That’s neat. :rolleyes:
Where is the family of George Floyd condemning the riots? Or the black leadership? Sorry if I’ve missed it, but it seems like there has been a lot of support for what’s happened.

No one has ever accused you of having a sense of humor...

I still have tears streaming down my face. His comic timing was impeccable. Everything was perfect, including holding the book upside down.

Was this before or after you boarded up your house in Shoreview?

You missed it. But it didn't have any jokes about fake Christianity, so it probably didn't hit your radar

One thing of note: he went out of his way to mention 2nd Amendment rights. Don't think that that's not a call to arms to right-wing militia. The MAGA life coach who threatened to flood the streets with millions of armed civil warriors if he got the go-ahead from Trump: if I were him, I would've taken Trump's words that way. This is an increasingly dangerous situation.

The more a person goes out of his or her way to proclaim how tough and how strong they are, the more I suspect that they are really not that tough or strong.

There were reports that Trump wanted the Church photo-op because of news stories that he was taken to the bunker - which in his view made him look "weak," so in response he comes out and proclaims he is the "law and order" President and talks about sending federal troops into American cities.

On a separate note:

I see a lot of graffiti and posters with "F*ck 12" on them. What the bleep does that stand for?
