It's not a coincidence that the statement he quoted about four congresswomen shares his sentiments of "you're free to leave if they don't like it here".
Nor is it a coincidence that a few hours later Trump tweeted "today’s vote concerning statements I made about four Democrat Congresswomen."

Twisting the meaning of what is obvious to everyone, just because it isn't explicitly spelled out, is the main reason for why you were asked to move on from this discussion.

Just to be clear, it's not safe to lie as long as long as no one can prove that they are. And it can get you into more trouble than just being told to drop the subject.
I hope you keep that in mind for future conversations. 

Also, when a moderator tells you to drop something, you should do it sooner than two reminders, 4 posts, and one warning later.
If you disagree with any decision, you can discuss it with any moderator via PM.

It's no coincidence that the majority of Trump supporters believe in God because there is no way to disprove him. Just like they believe in Trump because there is no way to disprove his good intentions. Those people thrive on the absence of negative proof.

Did you know that every Trump supporter fucks goats? Can't disprove it, so it has to be true.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

When Trump criticizes the government it's because he loves America, when Democrats criticize the government it's because they literally hate America. That's why they took office; because they hate it so much...

I know this is a classic talking point, but has it ever been used so blatantly?

Seems to me like I posted the double facepalm picture too early today... *shakes head*

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?

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.  

Yeah, I know - I told another poster much the same 5 or so pages ago but then went on to ignore my own advice...

The guy is just so god-damn annoying!!

Can I respond to this or should I just move on?

Not to argue the subject further (the tweets, etc), or dispute the decision.

What I communicated to you is the reasoning of the mods who discussed it, and why we asked you to move along. It's not just my own personal take.
So when a mod tells you to drop something, and why, it's because they've discussed it and reached that conclusion.

If you disagree with the decision, or have any other thoughts on the matter, you can tell any one of us via PM.

Duly noted.



Now he's even normalizing the idea of killing 10 million people.

"I just don't wanna kill 10 million people"

Yeah, but your fascist leanings say otherwise, President Piggy.



Some days I just blow up.

The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.
