Or, DOL, how about this in regards to translation and context? I talked about this on the first page, the '72 virgins' bs. There's not a single sentence in the Quran which mentions 72 virgins, or any virgin at all waiting for anyone. The 'virgins' refer to grapes, which are of the feminine grammatical gender in Arabic. Arabic, like many Indo-European languages, including western languages such as German, has grammatical genders. English does not. Therefore, the sentence has been lost in translation since time immemorial, with people thinking that the Holy Quran has some ridiculous promises included therein.

Oh shit, so now we're at the levels of his skin tone and hair? Very fake. This is getting serious.

Trump said he could boost his popularity by blowing up a Russian ship off the U.S. Coast. He said this. Out loud. Then he seemed to quickly reject that idea.

OMFG.

I really wish all of you could have seen this live.

He is completely mental.

At one point started yelling asking for a friendly reporter with a friendly question. This is after he berated CNN (full of hatred, bad ratings) and BBC ("oh another beauty"). Finally he found some random writing for a Jewish paper who acknowledged that Ivanka is Jewish and so Trump is a grandfather to her Jewish children so he was hoping to hear what his plans are about the rise in reported anti-semitic attacks in the last few weeks. Trump said he was the least anti-semitic person ever, that this wasn't a simple or friendly question and then told the reporter to sit back down.

He's a maniac. We're all gonna die.

He doesn't know what the Congressional Black Caucus is.

Oh i was reading all about this on Reddit yesterday. I can't wait. They're planning so many protests and trying to find ways to get into the rally to find ways to fluster him. It's hilarious.

He was asked about anti-semitic crime yesterday and responded by citing his EC win percentage.

Er, wait, I read that in this thread, didn't I...

I've been on Interference so long...I remember when Howard Dean yelling "YEAHHHH!" and making a weird sound meant he was unsuitable to be president.

CNN reporting that a Republican Senator told them off record that Trump's press conference rantings are something he should discuss with his therapist, not on live TV.

I'll wager that the protesters will outnumber the supporters.

Seriously. That knocked him out, but Trump's batshit crazy didn't hurt him?

anitram's description of that press conference. Holy shit.

Trump supporters have so much to answer for. So, so, SO much.

He just made a statement that the people that are disagreeing at the town halls are not Republicans, so they are not represented by the republican politician... Amazing.

In fairness, he did ask the one black reporter in the room if they were "friends" of hers and could she set up a meeting maybe?

Cringeworthy.

To be fair... There were other reasons, but that was a biggie.

Bigly.

Quote:
President Trump’s approval rating is at 39 percent, according to a new poll.

The latest Pew Research Center poll released Thursday shows Trump at a historic low compared with prior presidents in their first weeks in office.

The poll found just 39 percent approve of his job performance while 56 percent disapprove.
