    Sometimes politicians deserve to be mocked. Trump deserves to be mocked. If people don't like him being mocked maybe he should stop doing things that invite mockery. Trump is a pathetic human being and that anyone supports him is just baffling to me, but when people who pride themselves on being moral pillars of society and preach love support him so blindly.... I just don't know what to think. It's an us vs them mentality that apparently not even the Holy Spirit can overcome.

    I think we would all be better off if we accepted the results of elections, even if we don't like the candidate who won, and then looked forward to the next election when, with more effort, more organization, a better candidate or whatever, we might win instead of lose.

    One thing is for sure FOX won't ask any puffball questions like "What kind of tree would you like to be". ^_^

    Not just bad methodology, but the results don't really align to his claims either. There are multiple ways to search, and the results yielded by the site (even when all selections are the same (i.e. search string, title only, specific forum, time criteria), depending on which page you submit from it yields different results.

    You didn't seem to think that from 2008-2016.

    ?? How would that help him? They will just pin "coward"on him and the image of the Democratic nominee showing up for the debate live on all the major networks and Trump not there....The democrats would love that! He will show up. It's an empty threat.

    People for years were just as nasty towards Obama. Plenty of blatantly racist stuff targeted at him, such as mock lynchings, photoshopping him as an ape, etc.

    Who else remembers this verse: "Let his days be few; and let another take his office" being recited by conservatives during the eight years of Obama's administration? It's ironic how that particular verse has been replaced within the Religious Right with the scriptures about how God ordains our leaders (and Christians are called to obey the government authorities) since Trump was elected President and he panders to the evangelical Christian faith and to the political whims of conservative Christians.

    Fully agree with you on everything you wrote, Bob. I just disagree on who is the "they" lacking a clue & trying to deceive others.

    Yep. I know this fact on account of having lived in a town for a while where they thought it was funny to make "jokes" about lynching Obama.

    Trump gained popularity with those racist folks from the birther conspiracy nonsense on account of how it soothed their rage to think that the first black POTUS may not be legitimate. What really makes it wicked is that the same folks who did that for 8 years then want to turn around & sermonize that Trump must be respected on account of how God chooses our elected leaders.

    After the birther fiasco this seems a day late and a dollar short.

    I honestly think that the moral character of the President will once again be an important moral issue within the Religious Right if the next President elected is a liberal Democrat. There would have been unbridled moral indignation and outrage coming from the Religious Right who now support Trump if Obama had demonstrated the slightest hint of sexual deviant behavior that Trump is guilty of himself.

    If Obama had bragged about sexually groping multiple women, the conservative Christians who now support Trump would have NEVER called his bragging locker room banter or macho talk. They never would have insisted that Obama shouldn't be judged for his sins or insist that his sins are between him and God if he had had an affair with a porn star and then paid her off to silence her. He would have been berated if he had bragged about watching teenage girls getting undressed during beauty pageants. He would have also been repeatedly berated if he had been twice divorced and in his third marriage to his former mistress or if he fathered five children with three different women.

    That appears to be what happened. He used the hits instead of actually looking. I cant believe he's doubling down after I documented over 1000 threads about President Obama just from 2012 to 2016 alone.
