Yeah, but I guess it's easier to forgive someone on their 30s versus someone in their 70s who should supposedly know better right?

Those in their 70s are given leeway. For example, if a 20-50-year-old starts groping someone, we condemn that behavior even considers criminal action.

I remember stories of elderly bush groping a lot of young girls in his 70s and 80s.....Just groping young girls in public. Nothing really happened because we give the elderly in our society reverence and respect.

It's the irony of complaining about a newly elected representative's antics being an issue while the same poster has no issue that the president does it. How does the complaint have any validity with the obvious double standard?

Sigh.

Once again, you cannot compare the behavior of a 70-year old to that of a 20-year old.

Lol we wont be running to a safe place but you might want to consider it. You represent the people that motivate his supporters to give trump a free license to do whatever he needs to do to put people like you in your place. Just remember that next time our gladiator is kicking your gladiators ass and we show no mercy or empathy for you

Remember that next time you're bitching about a member of the Trump admin getting booed out of a restaurant. Or the next time some MAGA hat wearing asshole gets the **** knocked out of them, and you start a poor us thread.

I'll go ahead and remind you this is a thread of Trump supporters complaining about someone being mean.

Trump is no gladiator. He's that bitch Emperor that wanted to **** his sister, ended up being incompetent at everything except putting on a show, stabbed the real gladiator while he was tied up, and still ended up getting run through.

And funny how according to you he has free license, yet couldn't get a goddam thing done with all three branches behind him.

Buckle up Buttercup, get ready for the backlash, and make sure to pick out a nice rock to crawl under. And hope no one notices you slither under it.

Sure you can, unless you're a sexist bigot that thinks men should be held to far lower standards. Or somehow gain some level of forgiveness just for not dying for 70 years.

And even if your premise were correct, if you have to expect a certain amount of bull**** from a 70 year old. Why did you vote for a 70 year old. Knowing what you know about 70 year olds.

Fail. Fail all across the board.

Of course in Trumpland, a fail is really an alt victory.

I'm just parroting what you all say when someone compares Clinton or Obama to trump. We are told the topic isnt about them it's about trump, blah blah blah. Now you can choke on it.

I'd like to think a 70 year old has figured out how to behave better than someone in their mid 20s, but perhaps my expectations are too high.

You remember that next time one of your precious lil protestors gets run down in the street or your precious minor aged criminal is locked in a cage and I laugh at your pleas.

Trump was the best pick available. Are you arguing Ted Cruz was better?

Of all the other candidates that ran in the primary, you pick a piece of dog**** to compare to an even bigger piece of dog****.

I voted for Kasich.

Brain chemistry changes when you get older. Trump also may have dementia or alzheimer's.

If Congress does prosecute Don Jr. it will be for lying to them in testimony. The Presidents Twitter comments about prosecuting his enemies will not be acted on either. How is that not far worse than anything a Jr. House member writes?

Congress doesn't have prosecutory powers. So, it's a sure bet that Congress will never prosecute Don Jr., nor anyone else, for anything.

She's almost 30-years old and acting like a middle schooler. Very disrespectful towards people twice her age. She will not last long at her job.

So what’s Donnie Draft Dodger’s excuse?

I think it's just something as simple as him being a jerk; this pattern of behavior isn't new for him.

Let me put it a different way.

Let's say you are age 40-50... Do you have different expectations on how your 15-25-year-old son will act compared to your 75-85-year-old father... correct?

Your father does something dumb, you probably aren't going to yell at him.... you might scold your son.

As far as I see, that's attempting to portray a difference without a distinction. I see a personal attract, where the attacker got bit.

Well if by bit you mean a woman who’s clearly of subaverage IQ making threats that violate congressional ethics rules then I guess so.

She self indentifies as a socialist and socialism is associated with extreme poverty and political repression, these are the facts. Like in Venezuela. The joke being made by Trump junior was based on media reports people in Venezuela are eating stray dogs due to inability to afford food.

Cortez, despite knowing this wants to impose that system on the US.

If she was free market conservative Trump Jr wouldn’t said anything about her, so it’s obviously her ideas being attacked.

How do you explain her success?

Intersectional affirmative action.
In no objective way is she better then the congressman she primaried. She just has brown skin and a Spanish last name and claimed to be poor growing up. Three victim boxes and everyone can feel better about themselves
