. Though some might be, after seeing just how incompetent he's proven to be.
I still think it's way too early for this.
Yeah, with you on that. I don't much agree with most of what he's done, but he certainly hasn't "proven" himself incompetent. He's only "proven" himself as a President who will do what he said he was going to do - better or worse - and who is immune to his critics, except at the most petty level.
I have no doubt whatsoever that if his POLICIES were in line with the protestors, they would be shitting themselves with joy at the speed with which he has moved to take action.
I don't know when "incompetent" became a synonym for "I don't agree with".
Obviously I don't speak for anyone but myself, but I called him incompetent because he is incompetent, not because I disagree with him. There are lots of people I disagree with who I don't consider incompetent. Hillary, for example, I think is an incredibly odious person, but for better or worse I don't think she's incompetent. The same could be said for any number of politicians who I find extraordinarily contemptible.
And honestly I think we could dispense with the hypothetical 'if the shoe were on the other foot' stuff. Sure, some of these people are hypocrites and would probably be fine if Trump was being an asshole about things they supported. But that's not what happened, so discussing it is kind of pointless.
I totally get your point, and I wish very badly that it was accurate. It's really hard not to use the hypothetical when it's being proven every day.
Obama: we need to look harder at these seven countries Liberal: AWESOME. My guy is tough, but fair.
Trump: we need to look harder at these seven countries Liberal: MUSLIM BAN! MUSLIM BAN!!!
Hillary: I have accepted donations from nine investors of [X Company] to my Foundation. I also approved the sale of 20% of our uranium sources to [X Company] in Russia Liberal: well, she's sort of odious, but she's got experience!
Trump: I have built a building with financial backing from [Y Company] in Russia Liberal: Commie facist traitor!!!
Obama: I nominate Jeff Immelt CEO of GE to be our Jobs Czar! Liberal: Reaching across the divide, getting the experts in to help!
Trump: I nominate Rex Tillerson, former CEO of Exxon, for Secretary of State Liberal: Cronyism! Corporate Shill!
Clinton: Had at least three affairs, two sexual assault lawsuits, and flew on a pedophile's plane Liberal: What does it have to do with his JOB?
Trump: Had at least two affairs, no sexual assault lawsuits, but one tape where he admitted to "trying to kiss" a married woman who rebuffed his advances Liberal: MISOGYNIST! Pervert!
Obama: We lost because of Fox News Liberal: Yeah! Faux News! Fascists!
Trump: CNN is fake news Liberal: He's destroying our COUNTRY! Undermining the press! FASCIST!
It's not like conservatives don't do this - they do - but this notion that "Trump is somehow different" or that "Trump somehow warrants this" is really just self-justification of some very childish and repetitive behavior.
When do we break the cycle? And if Trump is bad with his "FAKE NEWS!" nonsense, why aren't these misleading tactics just as bad?
