Now that we know the way he speaks (crappily), there's no doubt in my mind it's "bigly."

It's an accent thing. "League" sounds like "lig," which is what is throwing you. I never once heard it like "bigly" because that's also how I pronounce "league." I guess it's an east coast thing.

Oh, that's good to know. It also, of course, fits in with his shitty manner of speaking.

This is from the Wiki on the Philly accent:

Quote:
Both long-e and long-a sounds are shortened before /ɡ/. Eagle rhymes with giggle [ˈɪɡəɫ] (as in "the Iggles"); league [ɫɪɡ] rhymes with big ; vague and plague rhyme with peg (pronounced [vɛɡ] and [pʰɫɛɡ], respectively).[20] For some Philadelphians, colleague and fatigue also have /ɪ/ (pronounced [ˈkʰɑɫɪɡ] and [fəˈtʰɪɡ], respectively). However, these are words learned later, so many use the more standard American [ˈkʰɑɫiɡ] and [fəˈtʰiɡ].
The Philadelphia accent is half New York, half Baltimore, so I guess that's the New York half.

Trump General Discussion VII

People here are too busy trying to figure out what to do with the letter R to worry about such vowel sounds. I've lived on the east coast my whole life.

That time he conceded his oft-repeated line about having the "biggest electoral margin since Ronald Reagan" is a lie
NBC reporter Peter Alexander: "You said today that you had the biggest electoral margin since Ronald Reagan – 304, 306 electoral votes. In fact, President Obama got 365 in 2008."
Trump: "Well, I'm talking about Republicans."
Alexander: "President Obama 333, George H.W. Bush 426 when he won. So why should Americans trust..."
Trump: "I was given that information, I was just given it. We had a very big margin."
Alexander: "I guess the question is: Why should Americans trust you when you accuse the information they receive as being fake, when you're providing information that is not accurate?"
Trump: "Well, I was given that information. I was, actually, I've seen that information around. But it was a very substantial victory. Do you agree with that?"
Alexander: "You're the president."

Society cannot function when it's elected leader cannot handle a basic fact.

My 100 days prediction was wrong then, I predicted low 40s.

Who knew he'd exceed my expectations so quickly?!

He's the most active president we've ever seen. I mean I hear a lot people saying he's active. He's tremendously active.

Just watched it. He's a fucking joke. I've lost any small respect I had for oregoropa et al. The man is an absolute joke.

Imagine dedicating time to supporting this piece of shit. He doesn't care about any of us beyond the capacity with which we can benefit his reputation and legacy, which is sinking with each passing day.

Jump off the bandwagon. Do volunteer work, support your local government. Just don't waste your time, your life defending egocentric madmen.

Imagine being so privileged that you can sit idly by and laugh and post pictures of frogs as he single-handedly destroys all of your country's goodwill and marginalises everyone who doesn't look like you.

Well, hey, I mean, we women and Hispanics and black people and LGBT people are just being oversensitive little snowflakes when it comes to all the things Trump's saying and doing, right? Why should we worry? It's all "just talk" from Trump. He doesn't really mean any of what he says. How dare we ask for anything resembling respect and decency from the leader of our nation?

(Also, that Green guy is a moron.)

I love Pepe the Frog. For years I've wanted a universal mark of stupidity that allowed me to filter out inflammatory nonsense and now it's finally here.
