The narratives about Trump thread

Are you sure or do you mean his average approval ratings among likely black voters in California on Thursdays?

If Tulsi can stay the course and not get into diversity, trans, gender pay gap, people of color etc then I think yes that 42% might not be enough for Trump. Otherwise there will enough that cringe at the idea of an SJW in the White House and vote Trump when the curtain is closed.

These are the hard facts of life

Hard fact of life: SJWs aren’t a real issue outside the right-wing echo chamber.

Trump supporters put the wolf in the hen house (again), selling out America’s future, and that is a much more important issue.

Personally, I don’t think he has favorable odds against any of the Dem candidates. Since he can’t expand his narrow base, his only hope is to divide the Dem base with black propaganda and whining (hence this is what you see all day everyday across the internet including here). His fluke victory in 2016 was due to voter fatigue and record apathy, and both of these advantages have evaporated. 2020 will likely see sharp spike in turnout, as did 2018.

But I’m not inside the right-wing echo chamber and I can see how the radical PC crazed mob is f’ing up the whole show. How do you figure that?

Do not underestimate American apathy.

Bill Maher is in the right wing echo chamber?

No Maher is definitely not on the right. Neither is Piers Morgan or any one of millions of liberals who can’t stand the SJW mob

He won because he talked about what Americans care about the most. Jobs. He promised jobs. He has delivered on more jobs and continued a upward economy. So he will win again with the same formula. People don’t care about all the other issues when they can’t put food on the table.

Pretty much. Ideology is all nice, but honestly it’s more about paying bills.

The bookies would disagree with you, it was evens for a long time, but has drifted to 5/6 odds or even 8/11, which is trending in the wrong direction for you, but hey what do the professional book makers know.

How so?

Imagine that, an AI algorithm that relies on actual speech and not the color of an author’s skin yet gets it wrong (ahem). :roll:

Shocking point #1, shocking that hate speech is hate speech no matter the skin color.
Shocking point #2, shocking that black English is frequently racist and is therefore “hate” speech.

Why is that we are so willing to be paralyzed by mere words?

Has Trump gone too far now? Was that tweet the tipping point? Are the walls finally closing in on him? Will he ever recover?

How could the management of the hill think that’s newsworthy…oh well, they probably got a fair bit of clicks out of that.

It almost definitely could be the beginning of the end. :sunglasses:

Unless something changes, there’s no way he’ll be reelected after this pachydermic debacle.

Trump right on the money with threats to label Antifa a terrorist group. That and his move few months ago to try do something about the hysterical radical left hate mobs on university campuses with his free speech initiative. The guy is way smarter than most give him credit for. He knows there are many on the left and in the middle (and those who don’t fit any category…IMPORTANT!) who loathe the radical left and it’s SJW Antifa mob

The spin on this one! Proud Boys are EXTREMISTS and Antifa are not?!

do_japan, CNN is doing the right’s bidding here, they will guarantee Trump gets re-elected

I’m not usually one to defend CNN, but the article actually does call Antifa an extremist group.

Ok they sneaked in a little bit of nuance there further down in the article…after years. And their hosts and guests have been pro Antifa through and through. Hypocrites

Yeah, they’re banking on the fact that a lot of their audience probably just reads the headlines.
