Maybe you're right. But I personally disagree. For me, it all forms a bigger picture of his character and makes me keep a closer watch on everything he does.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

First off I find it troubling that being more concerned for actual policy and action is less valuable to you than body language.
To be fair, he didn't say it was less valuable. It is possible to care about both things to varying degrees. I'm sure we all care more about policy and action more than body language, but we can still ALSO care about body language and how he interacts with other people.

Some of us care about it. I understand not everyone does and will see it as pointless. Good on you, I have no problems with that. But I don't see why you think everyone shouldn't care? To me, how he treats people and his constant display of arrogance bothers the shit out of me. It's not how I want the representative of my country to behave. I want my president to treat other people with respect. We can continue to go back and forth over this but it comes down to some not caring and others caring, so I really don't see the point in this.

Nope. I mean a man.

"Of the woman came the beginning of sin, and through her we all die." (Ecclesiastes 25:22)

"And the daughter of any priest, if she profane herself by playing the whore, she profaneth her father: she shall be burnt with fire." (Leviticus 21:9)

Women are evil, duh. The only way we can live a virtuous life is if we follow our husbands blindly.

It's not new for anyone, much less Trump. Yes, it was douchey, but seriously, this is irrelevant.
I'm not sure it's irrelevant. The way a president presents themselves to the rest of the world and treats other politicians does affect relationships and perceptions.

I agree it's not necessarily important, but it isn't irrelevant. It would be irrelevant if everyone were logical, emotionless robots.

Finally, we can confirm that Trump opponents will literally use anything to criticize him.
It's not like it's anything new. Just another example of him being a conceited douchebag which we already know he is.

Islam is hilarious.

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "I looked at Paradise and found poor people forming the majority of its inhabitants; and I looked at Hell and saw that the majority of its inhabitants were women."
Yeah, a man would think that.

Well after a lot of unfortunate events and waiting, I finally beat the Witcher 3.
I got the good ending. Went with Yennefer (duh). Finished in full mastercrafted Wolven gear.

Now to play the expansions.

But the emails?
Quote
the president has the authority to disclose even the most highly classified information at will
oh ok

Coming up next: top intelligence officials and also someone from the Democratic party call for Trump's impeachment following news that he pees while sitting down.
It's actually more serious than that as it breaks espionage etiquette and puts other intelligence operatives at risk. It means our allies might not want to share information with us anymore.

Very true. I want to say I'd take anyone over Trump. But Pence is pretty despicable.

That's why they are rumors. I think two people mentioned them just last night so there's not a whole lot of info. If it's true, that will be exciting.

Oh god, the harem trope too! So bad. I enjoyed the idea but pretty much hated all the characters except for the main girl. Also, after they leave the game it gets bizarre and so much worse.

An independent counsel is such a good idea. Just to clear all this bullshit up one way or another. Even if it comes up totally clean, like Roundy said, I would love for this black cloud to go away.

Or they could have not renewed security clearance for a year for a person they seriously suspected of being an insider threat shortly before the end of their term. Y'know, seriously enough to supposedly warn the next administration.
Where is the proof that they did renew his security clearance?

I just think it's ridiculous that you're holding the media so accountable. How about we give people some personal responsibility here.

I don't get your end game with this angle. Do you want the media to be held to a higher standard? Cause there are certainly news outlets that still report without such a heavy bias. Do you want media with strong biases to be shut down? Because that sounds awfully authoritarian. I just honestly don't understand why you're placing so much blame on the media, especially ones which are basically glorified opinion pieces anyway. They are not overloads that are pulling strings in our brains. Give the people some fucking credit.

Yes. People have no brains - they say and think exactly what Leftist media tells them. Blame the FAKE NEWS!
