    Re: The Fresh and Civil Politics Thread

    If ANYONE could read the President's mind or figure out his motivation's with 100 percent certainty, they would be a national treasure.

    Its laughable to even insinuate that anyone "knows" the motivations of a man like Trump. I can only infer based on his comments and actions. Now, if someone said "I spent four years working with this guy. I saw him at least once a week and he...." I might listen. I'm not sure anyone on this site has that unique insight, however.

    That is why I repeatedly stated it was my OPINION.

    Not asking anyone to believe it.

    Nobody will ever convince me that someone with several billion dollars financed his own campaign, gave up his existing businesses, put his business life on hold, etc...all for money when he leaves office at the age of 74 or 78 depending on if he serves 1 or 2 terms.

    It just makes no sense to me.

    Once again that is my OPINION.

    Did I mention that is my OPINION?

    Do I need a disclaimer saying this is my OPINION?

    *DISCLAIMER*: THIS POST IS THE OPINION OF THE MEMBER DAKSTANG. IT IN NO WAY IS MEANT TO REFLECT ANY OTHER MEMBERS NOR THE WRESTLINGCLIQUE WEBSITES OPINION.

    Not that Dak would have any reason to believe Wolff's book but Fire and Fury details a bit about how the idea amongst the Trump campaign was that there's no way they'd win but they'd benefit greatly from the PR of being a Presidential candidate and could spin getting shafted by "Crooked Hillary" for years to increase their brand. If it's true, then yes, the entire reason he ran was for monetary gain.

    It also stands to reason that that's why they can't shut up about her to this day. It was always the plan to mention her as much as possible after the fact, they just didn't realize they'd be on the winning side

    Re: The Fresh and Civil Politics Thread

    In all honesty, most of the things you put out are your opinion, Dak. The problem I think a lot of people have is that you seem to have a hard time differentiating fact from your opinion. All too often, you see them as the same thing.

    In fact, I've seen time and time again when in the face of actual facts....you still fell back to your opinions like they were rock solid gospel.

    I don't really see how he would benefit from losing.

    Go on a speaking tour? Write a book?

    Most political candidates do that anyway.....like Hillary did when she lost.

    However what is different about Trump is that he already had a lot of media attention, interviews, a thriving business etc...

    Seems like a lot of trouble to go to when he was already worth several billion dollars.

    I don't buy it.

    I disagree with that vehemently.

    See this is where debate goes to insulting.

    Personal attack because he disagrees with me.

    This is why I had him blocked before and will be blocking him again.

    He simply cannot handle someone with a differing opinion and then must insult them because he cannot debate.

    (chuckle) I had no idea I was ever blocked by you.

    Dak, I don't know you personally. I'm just pointing out what I see time and time again. Now, if you choose to take it personally, I guess I apologize. How do I say that I see very few of your points backed up by actual facts in most discussions we have here without you taking it personal? I'd be happy to comply.

    Apparently there's a web ad that was put out by Trump or his adminstration that says Demcrats are complicit to any murder caused by an illegal immigrant.

    That is as silly as saying Republicans are complicit in all gun killings in America.


    On a completely unrelated note, I don't care for Trump but his tweet about the women's march yesterday is the greatest troll tweet I think I've ever seen.

    Yeah I mentioned this yesterday. Tasteless.

    Its all hyperbole designed to fire up the followers that rely on perceptions and fear instead of data. I view it like when either side uses "the troops" as political collateral to get something.
