What?? Who's talking about alienating the extremists? Not the article I just posted.

Oops, you are right, I apologize, I misread.

But speaking of alienation, nothing like some inconsequential mayor of a foreign city alienating a large number of the electorate here by saying what he did.

Your right, he's just the mayor of the largest city of our strongest ally. Eff 'em.

I'm no expert like you perhaps, but the Mayor of London hardly seems important to this country at all.

Without looking it up, can you name any of the previous Mayor's ?

What exactly did he say that will alienate a large number of the electorate?

The last line of the article, use of the word trounce, defined as defeat severely, thrash, punish, not to mention this comment coming from a foreigner - especially since according the same article Trump had nothing but nice things to say about him.

What is this, a test? Certainly you are not so obtuse that you don't realize this is an indicator of how Trump's preposterous policy proposal is perceived. And this is just one example. If you give no credence to what foreign leaders think there are certainly plenty of examples of U.S. leaders expressing similar sentiments.

And, by the way, if the Mayor of London is so inconsequential then why would Trump make an exception in his case? And if he's willing to make exceptions then why have the policy? The only reason Trump ever mentioned this in the first place was to exploit fear and appeal to the base instincts of simpleminded voters.

He hopes that Hillary trounces Trump in the election and that bothers you? Is the mayor consequential or not?

Very few thought he would have made it this far.



You are certainly entitled to your opinion. Personally, I don't find anything admirable about the Trump campaign.


He wins.

Nope doesn't bother me, I could care less what this guy thinks.

I'm saying that there are a lot of Trump supporters/voters - "electorate" that will be offended by an inconsequential mayor of a foreign city wading into this and using that tone.

The only reason this guy is in the news is because of his religion and the fact that he just won an election, otherwise the Mayor of London has little to no bearing on any of this.

Wonder what the Mayor of Lisbon thinks ? Does Lisbon even have a mayor?

He's in the news because someone asked Trump about him, and Trump referred to him as an "exception."

How dare anyone defile The Great Trump!

Hardy that really foreign if you look at the level of British influence in American life. God, the mini skirt was invented in London! The Rolling Stones are a London band. Trump's been playing a lot of Stones songs, which if you think of it are London songs.

Not anymore. The Stones told him to stop.

Good attempt as flipping the conversation. Not quite as good as the old pro alloak, but not bad.

I apologized and stated I misread the article.

Who is this alloak you speak of?

Oh, ok. No one said it is, but I thought you were joining our discussion about our opinions on Trump's admirability. I guess you are trying to change the subject to something else.

He's been endorsed by the NRA who feels that he will defend our Constitutional Right to bear arms.

He also said that Hillary Clinton would overturn the Second Amendment.

Neither the President nor the Supreme Court can overturn the Consititution. Only an Amendment passed by Congress and not vetoed by the Presidnet can do that.

A constitutional amendment is proposed by congress and must be ratified by 3/4's of the states. The President is not part of the process. But I think the point is that the President, Supreme Court, and Congress all have the an ability to affect the practical application of the Constitution through executive orders, judicial rulings, or legislation.

My point is that no one single person regardless of office or branch of government can do it unilaterally.

If you support Trump, don't complain if a loved one is abused verbally or physically by some thug. You asked for it when you casted your vote for Trump. You want anger and hostility from the President, then expect it from his fellow citizens.
