Yeah I guess he should have used his most reliable technique but he didn't.

RE: The Politics Thread
I was watching my french media and it's astounding how they show a false reality. The fact speaks the truth not their whining, from what they said 60% of the white females in USA voted for Trump (I don't how they could know that but that's what they said). This is factual yet they are only showing white women crying and calling Trump a monster, how contradictory is that, they should at least show some white women being happy about the results.

They should come to my house. My mom was here this morning tap dancing, and my wife is ecstatic. My sister, who went to a liberal university, is probably crying in her coffee, lol. How ironic that she now lives in Texas...I almost had to unfriend her on Facebook with her nasty commentary.

And these comments about educated whites voting for Hillary and Trump getting the uneducated vote is insulting, but also hilarious b/c that's precisely the base the Dems target.

I hope Trump will actually do what he promised though. He might not be able to do it, he is just a president after all. President doesn't have much power this days.

That's because they've been weak. Trump also has a Republican majority in Congress which will help things along.

Donald Trump has a similar chart to Americas country chart. You might want to analyze it.

“Fear is the enemy of will. Will is what makes you take action. Fear is what stops you and makes you weak. You must ignore your fear. When you’re afraid, you can’t act.”

RE: The Politics Thread
All these crybabies protesting and acting like idiots are exactly why we need change in this country. Some liberal professor at a university actually gave class time off for students who might be "too upset." The pussification of this country has gotten far too out of hand.

And how ironic, the people who were upset at Trump for saying he'd have to see if the he'd accept the results of the election are the very same people who aren't accepting the results of the election from the other side! These people are so damn stupid.

Using that as a sole reason is dumb and scary. I have no problems with a female leader, however, she would have to be the right one. Hillary isn't it, and thankfully now never will be.

Funny, I was just thinking that. All these people who are crying in the streets and this one I seen this morning of a professor saying "you don't need to do midterms if you're upset by the election result"... those are the exact people who would get more of a say if Hillary won and it would be more 'safe space' and 'don't hurt my feelings' *****.

RE: The Politics Thread
My entire family voted for Trump. We're all black. We all possess degrees from higher education. My brothers and sisters all have Master's degrees. I take that back. Technically I'm a "Master's Candidate" until February -- THEN, I'll be awarded a Master's degree. My best friend is black, and he voted for Trump. He holds two Master's degrees -- an MBA and Masters in Economics. Their "everyone who voted for Trump is uneducated" ***** narrative is *****.

While it's true that Trump attracts the racist alt-right crowd, and they're going to get emboldened at first, the fact of the matter is that the black community (which, sorry guys, I care more about than anything else) will never get out of the rut it's in as long as the Democrats keeps poisoning the black youth's minds with this pussification, feminization and victimization shit. Everyone benefits when there's a strong, and stable economic base. Everyone, regardless of race or gender.

"It would have been worse if Clinton won" is what the liberals are now saying. They made fun of Trump rallies, calling them fighting arenas. Little did they know they were staring at their future selves in the mirror. In fact, this is worse than the disturbances during Trump's campaigns - these are Democrats rejecting the outcome of Democracy!

When Brexit happened, there was this segment on the Daily Show in which Trevor Noah made fun of the heavy accent of an elderly English man who had voted out, instead of focusing on what the man said. In the video, the man was like "Politicians come up here when campaigning, but forget about us when they win". A pertinent point which they missed AFTER Brexit, and continued clowning about the foolishness of the British people. I swear, when I saw that, I knew America was heading the way of Brexit due to the arrogant false sense of hope displayed by the liberal media.

I wish someone would compile a video of talk show hosts and celebrities saying they would move to Canada if Trump wins. That would be good banter!

Many of those "fights" were started by people paid by Democratic strategists. Pretty disgusting.

I don't want to sound sexist, but of all the female presidents i've known lately, all have been SHIT.

Argentina had 8 years of cristina kirchner (wife of ex president same as HRC), and with her the most corrupt government in 200 years history. The calculations are she stole a whole GDP of the country through the 12years they have been in office. A true kleptocracy

In Brazil rousseff was kicked out this year because of corruption.

Merkel has made Germany into a shithole

So yeah not excited about a female president ever.

RE: The Politics Thread
That's because in this world today it's "forbidden" to say that women in general has a lower ability to be a leader. Male and female have different skills. On average women won't have as much capacity for leadership so finding a good woman to be president is harder. Considering that most males president can't even do it properly.

It doesn't mean no woman can do it though.

Today a lot of people refuse to see that there is a lot of difference between a male and female.

To discriminate means to differentiate but today the term means another thing which has a negative connotation. Discrimination is seen as negative, and unjust, from google definition. So today to say that a male and a female are different is unjust, we should say that they are the same. In other word sex doesn't exist, there is no male and female.Both have the same capacity which obviously isn't true.

I think that comes more from the job being controversial in itself rather than who is in charge. Most world leaders male or female have bad stains on their record. Your charge is mutual for everyone.

Kirchner's husband was insanely corrupt as well, it's ingrained in their political culture if you look at successive leaders. The same for Rousseff in Brazil, the scandal blew open when she was president so she got the worst but Lula, the predecessor, was super guilty as well.

As for Merkel, she did pretty well since she became chancellor in 2005. Won 3 elections in a row. She was the leader in the euro crisis, unlike say Hollande or Cameron who were feeble and nowhere to be seen.

I suspect by the "shithole" part you meant the refugee crisis. The way it was reported was bad. If people actually go there (or Sweden where I live, we take many as well), the only difference taking in asylum seekers is when you go places you see a few people with Arabic origins. Europe also has chronic low-skilled labour shortages, which is filled in here. Do a minority of them commit crimes? Yes. So does everyone. Crime rates for Syrians in particular are no higher than the native populations. If you're worried about crime, a lot worse would come if you deport them back to a warzone that's for sure.

You forgot Margaret Thatcher as well. Agree or disagree with her views, she changed a country and was one of its most competent and well-known leader. Thus far Theresa May is not half-bad, especially given the hand she was dealt.

I can't say I have any particular female leader as a favourite, and Hillary wouldn't be a good president, but I thought your comment was rather one-sided. Just my 2 cents.
