    I've said many times this president is reckless, dangerously reckless.

    When it comes to the presidency, words matter. There are crazy people out there,
    and this idea that it's 'not to be taken literally' is not the point, it's that when the president says it, words matter, and there are people out there that live on his very word, LITERALLY, and this president DOES INCITE violence.

    Democrats are America’s Achilles’ heel. But we don’t want them dead.

    Democrats seem to be more and more anti American, they tried to usurp the people by impeaching Trump instead of running a candidate. They shut down States to kill business and force people out of their homes.

    Democrats more and more seem to be an enemy to the country.

    If they don't like this maybe instead of trying to destroy the economy and or Democratic process they should try not being our adversary.

    Trump 2020.

    A return to rational thinking would be acceptable

    Trump is a murderous fascist on a power trip.

    What are you talking about? Maybe you’re thinking of Obama who said he didn’t need congress because he had a pen.

    Nonsense, when a president shakes down a foreign leader for private gain, that's the very definition of abuse of power.

    The anti-american thing to have done would have been to NOT impeach him.

    Fortunately for Trump, he has a number of invertebrate cowards IN THE SENATE who can't stand up to him, fear his bullying and mean tweets.

    You're gaslighting.

    Bingo.

    Trump retweets video saying "The only good democrat is a dead democrat".

    Biden retweets video saying

    “The only good democrat is a
    republican” and is nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in journalistic excellence.

    Yea, your right, that is why the DEMS have been getting elected ever since Trump came to office. The debt is absurd, he bought the economy with debt. Once the virus hit he did almost nothing helping to murder Americans, he then tweets out this kind of stuff.
    But, yea, you guys are right, it is the poor, homeless, under paid, blacks, latinos, etc that are the problem. Not the overbearing white christians who want to pretend there is no virus and the ECONOMY is the best ever.

    Obviously it is a HUGE LACK of intelligence by the right wing white. They turn on FOX, Facebook, and TRUMP TWITTER for their info. They use it as news and avoid REALITY. My brother in law and sister in law do it. He is glued to Right wing Car news, Rush Limbaugh. The minute we see him he has some retarded Joke about face masks, or a black joke, he tells it even now because he thinks it is funny. No one laughs but him... I know many of these TYPE... Surrounded by them here in Florida.
    They love to compare Florida vs New York on corona virus, Governor, and finance. That is like Comparing apples to oranges, but he doesnt see it. His education ends at "each is a state, one has a republican Governor, the other a democrat"
    Never mind that NEW York is a world hub and so many came in with the virus, never mind one has Millions of retired people that collect their PENSION from cities and states of NEW YORK, then spend that money in FLorida.
    The only difference is one has a shill to the POTUS and the other doesnt.
    New York is OLD, Florida is growing because they have yet to reach a point where they tax citizens.

    But all of that type of conversation is beyond the Brother in law and his wife... It takes thought, caring, the ability to chose between right and wrong, truth and or fact vs a lie and or propaganda. The right has thousands of online posters to post for their THINK TANKS supported by billionaires, on the other side is the educated, the caring, the Libertarian, the semi conservative, and liberal. All fighting against billionaires and dumb and dumber

    Liberals, who only get their news from Twitter, are not well versed in current affairs.

    1) I am neither Democrat nor Republican

    2) Many Democrats consider #killallmen to be a harmless joke and any man offended to be fragile

    3) I would not dare to use the rhetoric mentioned in the OP, but sometimes a joke is a joke

    I was born and raised within walking distance of NYC. Trump was using New York humor. It relies on heavy amounts of hyperbole and "gallows humor". He was being a smart ass. But the rest of the country doesn't understand that, so he probably shouldn't have said it.

    Nobody is forcing you to live there. You can always move to the inner city. You can get a house for less than $10,000 and you don't have to worry about nasty white conservatives as neighbors. I am pretty sure you won't though will you? You will continue to live around white conservatives even while hating them and voting against their interests. Eventually they will move, establish a thriving community and the people who hate them will move in. We have seen this before, it never ends.

    Yes, most people understood that meme about Hillary involved with sex trafficking at a pizza parlor was fake,
    except for one crazy who went to that pizza parlor and shot up the joint.

    On the national scale, words matter. If you're president, especially. Like i said, there are crazy dumb ****s out there ( left and right, this is nonpartisan ).

    That language should not be used period, let alone by the POTUS, is it completely out-of-line, and there is no excuse to even rationalize it.

    I was explaining it, not rationalizing it. And I agree, he should not have said it.

    He's right 99% of the time. He was wrong here.

    It sounds to me like another distortion of the context in which comments were made. Alt-lefties are still using the meme "A few good people" which was taken entirely out of context. I know they do it intentionally so I laugh it off as TDS.

    The President isn't president of just parts of the country. Dude has to speak to the entire nation. If his message is that he wishes he could kill 1/3 of the people in the nation, then he shouldn't be President. End of story.
