What in the world are you babbling on about?

Also, Hollywood is not the only place where leftists exist.

(And saying she "came down from an ivory tower" while supporting a rich reality TV star is kind of hilarious.)

Hey, Meryl, most of the electorate (Men, Women, African-Americans, Hispanics, etc) love Football. Their lives revolve around team loyalty. Great job representing leftist Hollywood by bashing the true cultural-sport fabric that unites so many Americans.



Meryl Streep has probably never had a bad word spoken to her in 30 years. She is universally praised. She came down from her self-imagined Ivory Tower and made what she thought was a Streepian declaration, that would as always be widely accepted.

So poking fun at football is calling you deplorables?! That's all you got?

Um, actually Pierce Brosnan was the one who almost single-handedly ruined Mamma Mia.

You understand that millions of people in the US love the NFL? The Super Bowl is the most watched program every year in the World?

Her statement denigrated people that watch Football.

This attitude, permeated by Hollywood, Academia, New York media intelligentsia will not help you win back PA, OH, MI, IA, WI (ironic that these are places where football is a way of life, not just something to watch on the weekend)

The "Ivory Tower" metaphor is used when somebody is completely out of touch with the 'peasant class'. Meryl Streep's performance last night proved she had no idea what goes on in middle America. Trump is a rich reality star that understood Middle America. He did not have the condescending Ivory Tower attitude.

I fully understand I will never convert any of you into a Trump supporter. From a purely political science analysis, I'm putting out a warning that the Democratic party could be in trouble if it does not find a moderating messenger before the midterm elections. While you may view Streep's stand as a noble endeavor, it was potentially toxic to the liberal brand in its execution.

The future does not belong to those who would slander ABBA.

Yeah Brosnan was rough.

Yes, I agree with you that it's fair to roll your eyes at her comments about football and blah blah blah.

That doesn't mean Donald Trump wasn't very obviously mocking that reporter.

"Tone Deaf" is our new FYM buzzword open to be used by everybody.

Let's hope SOE isn't Tone Deaf

Well, I live in Iowa and I couldn't care less about football. Yes, I'm well aware it's very popular here, but I don't see how Meryl's speech was somehow insulting people who like football. My mom and sister like football, and they would've agreed with her statements. As would've my dad, and many other people I know who like football. So...

And I'm not bothered by the "Hollywood/academia/New York media" commentary, either. I really wish people would quit acting like all of us here in middle America will automatically have a knee-jerk reaction to the "liberal elite", or the people on the coasts, and must naturally disagree with or dismiss anything they have to say because "ooh, liberal commentary". Some people will, yes, but again, you DO know there are liberals who live here, too, right? And not just in the big cities, either.

BS. Complete and total BS. Trump wouldn't have the first clue what people like my family go through. Not a single clue at all. I'm not saying Meryl Streep would know any better, either, but for the love of all that is good, quit acting like Trump totally gets us working class people. He's more obsessed with whining about people being mean to him on Twitter than he is focusing on preparing for his job and actually doing anything about the things he claimed he said he'd do for the working class, he was born into money, he's never had to want for anything in his life.

Seriously, I hope to god you're just pulling our legs by saying this stuff, because there is no way you can possibly say any of that with a straight face and actually mean it.

Calling it a buzzword doesn't make it untrue.

Using those arm motions while discussing someone with a motor disabiity; the results are easily predictable.

And leading into it with, "You gotta see this guy..." My interpretation is deliberate mocking.

Is Oregoropa the one that was once upon a time a libertarian? This new character is pretty tedious, can you switch to a new one, please?

I am saying it with a straight face. It's easy to dig ourselves into opposing ideological trench warfare. There are moments when I close my eyes and try to see things from the other side. It's a good mental exercise. (Sometimes I can more easily channel an inner-liberal thought process when under the influence. Not mocking. A certain plant popular in Colorado can allow your psyche to travel to many different perspectives)

I saw a news story for a new app that connects Hillary-Trump supporters to communicate with the hopes of creating better dialogue. Might try it out, but I have it here.

Never really a libertarian. Must have me mixed up with somebody else. Bob maybe, he loves Ron Paul. I'm more loose on Marijuana law/usage as my post proves.

I have a "libertarian" on another forum who supports building a wall because "we already spend tons of wasteful money so why not?"

no. wrong wrong wrong. i can't stand this, i've had this argument with others before -- he ABSOLUTELY mocked the reporter. it's amazing how easily you fall for this kind of bait. it's exactly how right wing media is designed to work.
