WikiLeaks Trolls Trump World, Delivers Nothing on Hillary - The Daily Beast

There was a collective sigh across internet comment sections across the nation, and the faint whisper of someone on life support taking their last breathe; "we still got Parkinson's or... Benghazi"

Just to add to what I was saying earlier about Trump's statement on PTSD.

Interestingly, Obama just talked about this 5 days ago. And this is how it should be addressed.

"And, you know, sometimes the weight of battle comes home," Obama said.
That "weight" is reflected in the high rate of suicide among U.S. veterans. About 20 veterans a day commit suicide, a recent Veterans Affairs study found.

Suicides, in case you weren't aware, have been on the uptick over the past decade and a half, increasing 24 percent from 1999 through 2014, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2014, more than 7,400 vets — about 18 percent of all suicides that year — took their lives.

"This is something we just have to talk about more," Obama told Amanda Souza before outlining steps he's taking — or that need to be taken — to combat it.

"The first is I have instructed the Joint Chiefs and up and down the chain of command that they have a responsibility to de-stigmatize mental health issues and issues of PTSD and help to explain to everybody in all of the units under their command that there's nothing weak about asking for help," he said.

Obama said that mental illness, much like a "broken leg" or physical injury, can't be ignored.
"If, as a consequence of the extraordinary stress and pain that you are witnessing, typically, in a battlefield, something inside you feels like it's wounded, it's just like a physical injury. You've got to get help."

i shudder to think of the dark times that await the nation the first time a liar is elected president.

voting for someone who has told a lie in their past is truly unconscionable. since, as we all know, such a thing should mean immediate disqualification.

rip in peace ben gauzy

Yeah only soft-cocks take a nuanced and respectful approach to something. Loser. Sad!

Hillary is weak and doesn't have stamina, blah blah... Putin is a strong leader, Kim Jong Un is admirable because of how he "took control"

While i don't think he conciously was trying to say what he ended up implying, I really don't think you can argue that the flip side of his statement does in effect mean "weak" people are the ones that get PTSD because they can't handle it.
It just shows a horrible misunderstanding of PTSD and mental trauma in general.
I agree this one should not be that big of a deal, and it won't be because he'll say something more stupid in a few hours and the media will move on.
But i do think that it solidifies his bizarre mentality and over-compensation.

He doesn't say that people with PTSD are the ones who commit suicide. He says those who can't handle the PTSD are. Which is... Factual? I don't know what else you would describe that as.

Anyways, I'm done defending trump, I feel icky enough as it is.

oh he definitely said that veterans who commit suicide are weak.

but it was still just a brain fart rather than a slur.

Forget about Assange for a moment. Guccifer just released the hacked documents of the entire Clinton Foundation.

"Guccifer 2.0 also released a long list of Clinton Foundation donors, including the contact information of prolific billionaire donor Haim Saban, and actors Barbara Streisand, Rob Reiner, Steven Spielberg, Linda Cardellini and Mike O’Malley."

Mike O'Malley being included on this list cracks me up.

Reminder that Mike Pence is a massive piece of shit who would seem like an extremist nightmare if he wasn't paired up with Donald Trump.

Yeah, that's one of the things I kept thinking about when there was all the hullabaloo over Clinton and Trump's health a while back. If, God forbid, something happened to either of them, I could easily deal with a Tim Kaine presidency. Pence, on the other hand...

I've heard about Mike Pence, but I haven't yet actually heard him talk, that I can recall. So this debate will be interesting for me on that level.
