Trump Just Upset More People With Honesty

Forums - Politics Discussion - Trump Just Upset More People With Honesty

This is really feels like a Simpsons episode. Homer gives a fair criticism to the country on TV, and suddenly he becomes USA's #1 enemy.

I've never liked Trump, but sometimes he says or does the right thing.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Good on him for admitting that the USA's holier than thou attitude is a farce ...

Trump's foreign policy is a breath of fresh air compared to the Bushes or the Clintons ...

Leave it to Trump to always stick it those on a high horse even though he has a high horse himself LOL ...

Don't stop being the world's greatest troll, Trump ...



Presidents dont need dimplomacy anyway.



Trump? Honest? He's occassionally honest, but he basically won the election by offering suspiciously easy solutions to difficult problems instead of uncomfortable truths. He's a manipulator who's mastered the art of bending the truth to his needs.

He's honest this time for sure (although I think he completely dodges the point), but characterizing him as 'completely honest' just couldn't be much further away from truth.



The USA doesn't deserve this man.

Gotta disagree with the bolded. He hasn't mastered anything (imho). His lies are beyond obvious. People are so ready to defend him that Hillary could write his next speech and people would eat it up and say they agree with what he said 100%. I've yet to see his supporters (not some people who agree with some of the things he say) criticise him for a single thing so far. 

Other than them, he ain't fooling anyone and he's the furthest thing from a master manipulator.



Props for the statement about the US, should be the most universally acclaimed statement of his.
Towards Russia, maybe he meant awe-inspiring instead of respect, because a big nation as Russia can be dangerous af and you definitely don't want Putin as your enemy.

He is right in this case but calling a compulsive liar "honest" because he's telling the truth once a month is a bit extreme.

I am surprised by the amount of Americans who truly believe their country's morally superior. One thing I love about Trump, he's shedding light on the hypocrisy from the right & the left, and it's hilarious to watch.

That's largely due to fact that the US has been given the responsibility of being the police of the world and the fact that the US government give $40-50 billion away in foreign aid every year and then private citizens give another $25-30 billion. It's easy to sit on a high horse when you're doing things like that.



and how does this translate on policy?

You know, I really thought whether I should use the word 'master' there. It seems I should've used something else.
