"It was in the tweet you claimed to have read."

>Actually, looking at it further, I don't think these were Trump's words:

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1151451067437191168?s=19

Seems more Trump quoting someone else: Louisiana Senator John Kennedy.

"you didn't actually care enough to do a 5 second google search of who the squad is"

>There's the problem: I need to hear it from Trump who he would mean by 'the squad', not from Google. The reason I ask this is because I don't want to misrepresent Trump. Google is not Trump.

That said, I'm curious to know what you made of Trump's original three tweets:

Wow, you don't want to "misrepresent" Trump? Are you okay with Trump misrepresenting the four congressmen, especially Ilhan Omar, in this whole exchange and in this recent tweet?

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1152912995938443269?s=20

Trump quoted the Senator because he agrees with him, the tweet was to illustrate that he knows who "the squad" are and has referenced them on numerous occasions.

Also the other tweet I linked, which was left out for some reason, would show you who the "four Democratic congresswomen" are and who Trump was talking about throughout this entire exchange.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1151327083110510594?s=09

The only vote they held that day "concerning the statements (he) made about the four Democratic congresswomen" was to formally condemn his tweets as racist towards AOC, Talib, Omar, and Pressley specifically, as well as in general. From that fact and from how Trump himself doesn't correct anybody or yell "fake news!" when they assume he's talking about "the squad", named earlier, you would logically and correctly assume that those "four Democratic congresswomen" are in fact the four named earlier.

EDIT: This is such a ridiculous and petty argument you tried to make about who he's referencing but I'm more interested in why you don't apply that same blind, ignorant skepticism towards Trump in favor of "the squad" as you're doing right now?

"Are you okay with Trump misrepresenting the four congressmen, especially Ilhan Omar, in this whole exchange and in this recent tweet?"

>Not if there was in fact a misrepresentation.

"you would logically and correctly assume that those "four Democratic congresswomen" are in fact the four named earlier."

>I like to avoid working off of assumptions as much as possible.

"I'm more interested in why you don't apply that same blind, ignorant skepticism towards Trump in favor of "the squad" as you're doing right now?"

>What blind, ignorant skepticism? Not sure what you're getting at.

What's 'on you'? Can you be more specific, otherwise I have no idea what you're talking about...? Clothes on your body, egg on your face, wasting everyone's time?

I refuse to acknowledge the context in which you made that comment and lack the ability to apply basic deductive reasoning so could you please treat me like a particularly slow 5 year old and include the specifics please?

Ooft, my neck is getting sore from the weight of all these super-high standards crammed into my huge skeptic brain...!

"What's 'on you'? Can you be more specific, otherwise I have no idea what you're talking about...?"

>Refer to sundin's post.

Refer to the context within which Trump is making his tweets.

Dude, no news outlets, left or right are questioning who these tweets are about - you're acting like the villiage idiot.

I kinda hope you're trolling for your own sake...

"these tweets"

Why are you so intent on viewing those 3 tweets in a vacuum? You're deliberately ommitting all of the surrounding evidence that make it clear as day who Trump is referencing...

If everybody has added 2 & 2 and made 3, why wouldn't Trump have come out and clarified who the real individuals he was refencing were? Just like he clarified that he 'mispoke' re. would/wouldn't in the Putin debacle?

>Because that's where his three tweets are situated in his Twitter page. The tweet before was a warning about flooding. The tweet after was a retweet of a David Harris tweet.

"why wouldn't Trump have come out and clarified who the real individuals he was refencing were?"

>A question for Trump to answer.

Then how about you look farther afield than his twitter page? If you really want to get to the bottom of this paradox wrapped in a riddle why don't you actually spend a tiny bit of effort trying to find out rather than expecting posters in this forum to spoon feed you like you're a lazy, simple-minded child?

It is a misrepresentation. Can you prove to me that it isn't?

@bolded: If that's true then you're being very hypocritical and no one in their right mind should put any stock in what you say regarding politics. You work of the assumption that he isn't talking about "the squad", Occam's razor would conclude that he is, not to mention with just basic common sense you'd come up with that conclusion. You also work under the assumption that Trump wouldn't immediately correct who he was referring to if everybody got it wrong. He would and he would cry "fake news." You're doing a lot of assumptions with no real proof, prove to me he wasn't talking about them.

There comes a time when you realize someone is pulling your chain.  The reason he continue to play those 3 tweets in a vacuum because if he does not everything he has stated up to this point seems foolish.  His whole defense is to act as if everything else Trump has said before and after those tweets do not matter.  It comes a time when you realize he is wasting your time and he will continue to play the fool wasting your time until you stop responding to him.  



I've been told to drop the topic.

Ciao.
