    That he didn't mean it verbatim (i.e. that he really believes that he could shoot someone without losing voters) is just your interpretation.
    From the narcisstic personality he has displayed so far during his time as PotUS I woiuld actually believe that he means it verbatim

    • Proteus, he says stuff but doesn't actually mean what he says... at least that's what I'm getting from Kidiot.

      So... is he lying or did he really mean what he said? Or is he not control of his walnut sized brain and says stuff uncontrollably (this may be a sign of severe dementia)?

      He's not the type that admits any sort of fault. That will be his downfall later.

        ...
        Yes, I believe most Trumpists treat Trump like an empty canvas.
        If the things Donnie says fit to them (their expecations/beliefs) in a positive way, then Donnie (in the eyes of the Trumpists), of course, has meant it literally.
        If the things Donnie says/does can only be interpreted negatively, then, of course, his words/actions get ignored by Trumpists or they say that Donnie didn't mean it literally.
        (likewise they treat things said by Democrats or the free press the other way round)

        (also they, of course, also won't do a fact check ... when Donnie says that Obama left the economy in shambles and only he (Donnie) brought it up from ruins, then this is so, without any need to prove ... and anyone who suggests that the economy under Obama was quite good and the economy is just following the trend of the Obama years is, of course, spreading fake news)

        So, no matter what Donnie says, he can do no fail in the eyes of Trumpists, as every negative thing gets blended out

          He said he wanted to hear the so called "President" speak and he was making faces because of it... man... if I was sitting there too I would be as well. Seems like the "President" has bad gas.

          But damn... look at those shrinking crowds. If Donny can't even get the deplorables out, the GOP is in big trouble.

              • Sweden had an election today...

                https://www.dw.com/en/sweden-electio...tes/a-45408590

                Official Count:

                Social Democrats: 28.1
                Sweden Democrats: 17.9
                Moderates: 19.3
                Left Party: 8.1
                Centre Party: 8.8
                Christian Democrats: 6.4
                Liberal Party: 5.4
                Green Party:4.4
                While the Trumpist Far Right "Sweden Democrats" did make gains, it is not as expected. They were thought to be the second largest party, but with more counting going on it seems like the idea that many Social Democrats don't answer exit polling may be true.

                MAny opinion polls were projecting the Sweden Democrats would get above 20%+ of the vote. Some even said 22-25%. So they did underperform, and seem to be losing percentage points as the count continues. At one point, they were projected to get 19.2% of the vote.

                If they drop below 17%, then the opinion polls were seriously off. Nonetheless, they still made gains. Not the gains many were expecting.

                  Royal Navy sailors, reportedly from the UK's £3.1bn flagship aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, have been arrested in Florida.

                  The sailors, on shore leave, began fighting and urinating in public, according to local newspaper reports.

                  Six crew members were arrested on drunk and disorderly charges on Wednesday, Sgt Larry Smith of Jacksonville Beach police department is quoted as saying.

                  At least one sailor was tasered after resisting arrest, the reports add.

                  The Ministry of Defence confirmed that six naval personnel were arrested but were unable to confirm whether they were from HMS Queen Elizabeth or other support ships.

                  A Navy spokesman said crew were "assisting US police with their enquiries", adding: "It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.

                        • The "great power" the Ring tempted him with was a really gigantic garden--it gets confused trying to tempt non-Gollum hobbits, since they don't do ambition--and he had more than "a few" children per the family tree in the back of the book.

                                Anyway, cite? I mean, your good with the unsubstantiated claims and fantastic with the misread (and misunderstood) charts, but citation or it didn't happen.
