Trump says CEOs who aren't with him should be fired.  Because threatening people who don't whorship him is totally a normal thing. >_>

"In two long Truth Social posts on Tuesday quoting a Wall Street Journal article,..."

Seems Trump didn't say it...he quoted the paper.

The paper was relating the news that corporate tax rates under Biden would be raised from 21% to 28%.

It seems the author(s) of the article are the ones who believe CEO's should be fired if this happens.

I believe the CEO's should be fired if it happens.

Why did you cosign a lie?

Is it just normal for you?

As Honk said, you didn't bother reading Trump's post.  Here, I circled the part where he said it then quoted an article.


You're not a good fanatic if you haven't read all of his posts.

Maybe, but that's the most recent figure I found, taken from one of his arrests last year.

Which means nothing more than Trump claimed to weigh that much. He's obviously lying, just like he's obviously lying about his height. Trump's height and weight won't be accurately recorded unless he's actually convicted and sent to prison.

Fair.   So... 1 1/2 trumps?

Trump weighs 215lbs.

Trump weighs far more than that.

And Trump's story is, once again, BS.

https://www.southernfriedscience.com/for-immediate-release-experts-respond-to-concerns-over-the-relative-risks-of-electric-boats-and-shark-encounters/

Like. Why would a boat sink because of a battery?  Yes its heavier but unless you just slap an EV battery  into a small boat, its not gonna matter much.  Boats displace water based on their weight.  So if you have a boat that can't handle an EV battery without sinking... You probably shouldn't be using the boat anyway.

Trump weighs 215lbs.
I grabbed the Breeze 20 for battery size.  15kwh.  Weight is around 450lbs.  (I couldn't find exact weight)

If your boat is gonna sink because an additional 2 donald trump's get on it... You need a bigger boat.

O.o

Just curious... How would you not be in shark infeated waters with a normal boat sinking?  Do such boats magically save you from being in the water once the gas hits the ocean?

Holy shit.
And the hilarious thing is the cult members will defend that complete ramble with a straight face while saying that Biden is incoherent.
In fairness... What else is Trump gonna do?  Go over his vague revenge policies for the 200th time to the people who've heard it 200 times?

LD, are you going to address Tom's point or not?

Is he making a point?

Also, Tom didn't read.

One aide who was given a plum position on the board of Trump’s social media company, for example, got the seat after he was subpoenaed but before he testified.

Mask are physical, three-dimensional objects. If he were wearing a mask - and not just a thin layer of material, but a mask that's substantial enough to make him look like a different person - you would be able to see the bulge or swelling where it begins. It wouldn't be so perfectly flush with his neck that you could only tell he was wearing a mask by the difference in skin tones.

What's actually happening here are just shadows. The interviewer has something similar going on with his neck in the full video, but you can tell a bit more easily that it's shadows with him.
It is obvious there are different tones.

You are being disingenuous in your post.

What's actually happening here is this video shows somebody made up to be Joe Biden.

Yes, using CGI. Its not a mask.  Masks are stupid in this day and age.

Yes, the government are now faking things with all the skill of a Scooby Doo villain.
They would have gotten away with it too had it not been for those meddling internet "sleuths".

Holy shit, Tom, is there any insane conspiracy theory bandwagon you won't hop on?
What conspiracy?

Neither one of you have a valid explanation regarding the video.

The video is faked.  Biden is CGI.  Its really Trump, posing as Biden, and overlayed with CGI.

Huh...

https://www.propublica.org/article/donald-trump-criminal-cases-witnesses-financial-benefits#:~:text=Nine%20witnesses%20in%20the%20criminal,cash%20from%20Trump's%20media%20company.

Basically: Trump tried to buy positive witnesses who work for him or silence them from cooperating volunterily from law enforcement.

Credible?  Maybe.  Not sure.

Where does it say that they got those things after they were contacted by the court to be witnesses?

It doesn't say that. And obviously they would want to bring in high ranking witnesses closest to Trump at the top, so top people getting benefits in their job means nothing here.

This is like calling in the CEO of Microsoft to testify against the alleged crimes of Bill Gates and declaring that the witness was given wage increases and a promotion to CEO prior to being called as a witness, which is evidence of witness tampering. Nonsense.

Except some of them aren't top offficials.

One is an Aide who got a salary doubling.  Which doesn't happen normally.  When was the last time your boss gave you a pay raise that doubled your salary.

One got a 2 million severance (we don't know who) under the condition they can't cooperate with police voluntarily.


This is like calling the CEO of Microsoft to tewtify against the crimes of Bill Gates and finding out the CEO was given the job as soon as they were marked as a witness.

((Appologies for not answering sooner.  It fell off the radar))

So let me get this straight, the trade war, that lowered our trade with China and increased tariffs, you don't like it, it was bad, but also you wouldn't have a problem with it? It seems more and more that your position is "I don't like Trump, he's a big meanie :(" and not based on any policy reality.
It lowered it as an unintentional consequence then Trump tired to make it higher via the deal he finalized with China.  China did not follow through.  Not exactly the best of deals if you want to decrease China's business with the US.

Quote
A dirty bomb is not "nuclear technology" and also it's a Hollywood meme.
Yes and no.  It IS a real thing.  Typically an explosive that blows up plutonium, which dispurses the radioactive material over a large area.  Refinement requires some nuclear technology (the refinement process) but not fission.

Quote
I didn't say the Taliban is good. The Taliban is morally superior to the Afghani government that the US installed. The US really likes installing terrible governments, you pointed that out earlier with Iran.
I and many people (especially women) disagree with that assessment.  I'm not sure about the accusations of state sponsored rape but I do know that the Taliban happily forces marriage on women, which the Afghan Government installed by the US did not.  So I supose morally superior is a sentiment of opinion.

Quote
Did we actually do more business with China?
Its in the agreement.  But China didn't bother upholding their end.  So if youwish to say that Trump intentionally made a deal knowing China wouldn't follow through then... sure?

Quote
Let's see, does China and Russia ring any bells? You just admitted he reduced trade with China. Are you going to walk that back now? And Russia, Trump insisted that the EU stop relying on Russia for trade goods, and it worked to a slight extent. But let me guess, you think that's a bad thing now. We don't want to be too mean to Russia.
Intent and result are not always the same thing.  And unless you wish to claim Trump makes false intentions knowing the results will not be what is intended, I fail to see how Trump wanted less trade with China.

Quote
Putin quite literally said he refused to invade Ukraine because Trump "didn't understand geopolitics". He waited until Biden entered office, as he knew Trump would "overreact" to the invasion. In much the same way you think Trump did something very bad when he had an Iranian general rightfully killed. Had Putin invaded Ukraine while Trump was president, Trump probably would have started ordering the deaths of Russian generals.
Yes, lets trust the word of a man who wants to ensure Trump stays in power and rules his own country with an iron fist. Surely he would NEVER lie... right?
And given Trump's comments, I don't think Putin had anything to actually worry about. 

https://www.politico.com/news/2022/02/23/trump-putin-ukraine-invasion-00010923

Quote
“I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius.’ Putin declares a big portion of the Ukraine — of Ukraine — Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful,” Trump said in a radio interview with “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.” “He used the word ‘independent’ and ‘we’re gonna go out and we’re gonna go in and we’re gonna help keep peace.’ You gotta say that’s pretty savvy.”

Trump was then very clear on his position that the US shouldn't be giving Ukraine Money unless Europe gives more.  Which Europe may not have been able to do.
And honstly, not sure he would order the Deaths of Russian generals.  He very clearly wanted to withdrawl from conflicts so he probably wouldn't risk jumping into another one with Russia by killing Russian Generals directly.

Iran is differnece since they have no chance of hurting the US.

An outright case of reverse jury nullification if there ever was one:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/brianbushard/2024/06/08/gop-demands-trump-mistrial-after-facebook-comment-from-jurors-cousin-sparks-conspiracy/

Is that really how it works? Some random guy on the Internet can hint that he knows the verdict ahead of time, and that's it, we need a mistrial now? Would this work for someone else? Hey guys, my brother is on Hunter Biden's jury, and he's already promised a conviction! MAGA forever!

The court can investigate and determine if any jury members are telling people that it's going to be a sham trial. If they are, then it is grounds for a mistrial.

Why?  The Jury had to be unanimous.  So one person would have been useless getting Trump guilty.  Need all 12.

And would defence allow all sham jurers?

Perhaps one would want to look at the instructions given to the jury, in light of the Facebook post, and reevaluate.
Yeah, and?  What about them feels wrong?

Are you trying to tell me that the one thing causing Biden to get curbstomped in the polls is also the one thing you think he did well? Out of everything you could positively say about Biden "his economy hasn't done badly" might be just the most insane take I've ever read.

I don't live in the US so I've no real feel for how the economy is doing, but I've read some stuff which indicates the US economy is pretty strong right now. Although interestingly the perception is that it's doing poorly. There seems to be a gap between the perception and the reality
https://www.vox.com/politics/24094752/biden-trump-strong-economy-2024-inflation
I like to compare the perception I get from Americans with where I live and how that's going and my conclusion was that it was the same general feeling.  Prices go up, shrinkflation is prominent, wages... well, my wages go up but others don't.
So that, to me, tells me that whatever the issue is, it's not because of Biden.  I'm pretty sure it's the Russia/Ukraine war disrupting energy to Europe and Wheat from Ukraine.
