I mean, guys. This is offensive. It was funny when that one comedian told that lady to get raped, because comedians make jokes by offending people and that's how comedy works. But this is on the other side of the line cos um. librul. snowflake. u retards lost. Or something.
Trump supporters wanted to live in an era where we could get rid of "PC culture", and people could be able to "tell it like it is" and be as honest and blunt and offensive as they wanted to be. That's why they supported him.

And yet they're the first to get upset whenever somebody mocks them or Trump. Gotta love the irony.

As for that photo, obviously I get where the visual in and of itself would be upsetting, but is that meant to be a (joke) threat against him specifically, or is she trying to say something else with that image about how damaging he is to the nation/world, or what?

That's just it, the people who champion their "right" (because freedom of speech! murica!) to be giant dicks always tend to get really upset and offended if anyone gives it back to them, don't they.

Picture is stupid. I don't particularly find it funny, and as a rule I tend to roll my eyes and yawn at the attention-whoring nature of a picture when people do intentionally outrageous things to rally their side by offending the other. But on a scale of things I hate more, the first point irritates me a lot more than a picture.

According to the AP, Trump urged Trudeau and others to call him on his mobile phone, rather than using the secure landline.
He could as well have just offered to pass around transcripts to foreign intelligence agencies.

yeah, this kind of illustrates what's frustrating about trump in a nutshell.

he's perhaps the most dangerous man on the planet ( considering the tools at his disposal and the intellect that exists between his ears), yet it's bigger news this morning that he completely melted his words in a tweet, rather than the fact that he's about to pull the US out of the Paris agreement.

you can never pin him down on anything because he's speaking bollocks all the fucking time.

well, to be fair, you and I most likely won't see the effects. So our deaths will be related to something else.

But the generations after us? They've got their work cut out.

Millennials are gonna have to do more than just travel the world and brag about being the generation that defeated racism.....

In all seriousness, him pulling out of this treaty may be what really sets our species back forever.

the only way this won't be true, is if the paris agreement wasn't good enough/strict enough to begin with.

"if the US doesn't have to sign up for this, then why should we hurt our own economy?" will be the rallying cry of right wing politicians in all 190+ countries who've signed up, and this will likely result in more defections.

I don't know if it truly does enough, but it was a good start. I looked at it as a framework, and having 99% of the countries included was necessary.

Now with USA pulling out, I do fear what you allude to, will other countries say fuck it?? Or maybe these countries use this moment as a way to show that they are better than us.

i agree on all counts. i genuinely believe there is a lot of money to be made from green initiatives/technology, which completely escapes trump, bannon, et al.

i mean, rex tillerson, the oil magnate in his own right, is alleged to be persuading trump to stay in the deal. oil companies from a-z acknowledge climate change is real, how the fuck can't this administration?

Right, and those companies know their oil resource is limited. There's nothing stopping them, and I'm sure they are pursuing greener technologies.

That is where the investment lies, and these companies would be stupid to just double down on coal.

The GOP want the end of the world. I feel the angle is more religious than anything else. The end of the world, destruction, chaos has to happen in order for JC to return.

The GOP are also incredibly stupid too. So there is that. Maybe that's the bigger angle.

For Trump, this is about fucking over Obama anyway possible. He doesn't care either way about the GOP reasoning.
