The narratives about Trump thread

Trump today:

We will rebuild our capital city so it is no longer a nightmare of murder and crime… Right now if you leave Florida — “Oh, let’s go darling, let’s go look at the Jefferson Memorial” … and you end up getting shot, mugged, raped.

Violent crime in D.C. is down 18% since Trump left office.
This not due to Biden- violent crime in D.C. peaked in 2000 at 1600 per 100,000 and dropped steadily under Bush, Obama, Trump, and now Biden to a current rate of 800.
It was about 1350 when Obama took office, 1100 when he left and Trump took over; about 1000 when he left office (it was more, but ignoring the Covid spike) and dropped again under Biden.
As noted, as of the first quarter of 2024, it has dropped 18% since Trump left office.

It seems pretty likely he raw-dogged a porn star, so not that much of a germaphobr…

President Trump on Friday told reporters he removed Jeffrey Epstein as a member of Mar-a-Lago.

“I threw him out,” Trump said. “In fact I think the great James Patterson, who’s a member of Mar-a-Lago, made a statement yesterday, that many years ago I threw him out. I’m not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein.”

Trump says all sorts of things. Including ‘“Ive known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump told New York Magazine that year for a story headlined “Jeffrey Epstein: International Moneyman of Mystery.” “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”’

You might have noticed he’s not that trustworthy on many claims.

The New York Times editorial board declares Trump ‘unfit to lead’…

That scroll-down-to-find-the doom headline, black background, is hilarious.

Ezra Klein is admitting publicly the trope that Mr. Trump poses a threat to democracy isn’t taken seriously by Democrats in Washington. I think the NYT doth protest too much.

Lol, indeed. Biden got a much less scarier treatment

That’s totally obvious at this point.

A once great political party now serves the interests of one man

One man and the millions and millions of people who voted for him.

No mention in the article of all the lies Biden told during the debate. Very telling. The NYT has become a joke.

Thanks.

It’s the old “soul of the nation” plea. :roll_eyes:

Biden never lies according to MSM. He just misspoke.

So both of them are liers. One lied 30 times, the other lied 10 times.

Thank you for being slightly more honest that the NYT. :+1:

Yes I can see plainly with my two eyes that these men are EXACTLY THE SAME. :roll_eyes:

You’d have to be crazy to subject yourself and your family to the scorched earth purges of “progressive” extremists and Trump fits that bill.

What looks nuts to me is how many folks are apparently A-OK with this adjudicated rapist and convicted felon and obvious crook as your future president. But you already know all that.

SPELLING CORRECTED BECAUSE THAT’S THE KEY POINT HERE. :roll_eyes:

Is this what happens when you get a tummy ache from drinking too much juice? :thinking:

Hey I can correct spelling too. :slightly_smiling_face:

But the substance of the point . . . folks are fine with this sexual assaulter being handed the keys to have more authority? No thanks. :face_vomiting:

Guy

So it’s sexual assault and not rape like you previously claimed? :thinking:

Trump was never convicted of rape anywhere.

You understand that these are overlapping—and overwhelmingly negative—categories?

You also understand that the judge who ruled in this case used the word “rape” in the judgement?

The fact you think spelling issues and overlapping terms regarding sexual assault and rape are the key issues here . . . I hope you find your moral compass. Really I do.

Now please excuse me.
