When everybody is crazy but you, it' s probably you that's crazy.

Me and Jeanine Pirro and all the millions who voted for Trump. We're all crazy, right? Crazy, stupid, whatever.


Give your head a shake. That's exactly what you're saying about the people who disagree with you. Why is it wrong when I say it and right when you say it?

You'd have to demonstrate that you're right. If you could do that, you wouldn't have to constantly resort to name-calling.

Perhaps in regards to evidence, she does have a large segment of the US population that thinks as she does.


Opinion is not evidence.

Trump's own words are evidence. Screaming "Fake news!" doesn't negate what we've all seen him say. We don't need a conspiracy.

Pirro points out that Trump used to be hugely popular with the press and often presented him in a good light. She says he hasn't changed but once he won the Presidency on a conservative platform they committed to bringing him down.


We have higher standards for a President than for a clown on a reality show.

Within the contents of the book, (or Chapter One for most of us) anything can be reasonably discussed as long as we lay off each other.


Chapter One seems to be a rant with no content.

Most of the topics don't really lend themselves to evidence, they are judgment calls.


Exactly. So any talk about a "conspiracy" is nonsense. You might as well claim there's a conspiracy to like ice cream.

Almost every President has been attacked by some nut in the public - many of them physical attacks.

Faith writes:

It's his literal words taken out of context, misquoted, twisted to mean something entirely different, headlined in a way to imply something they are not and so on.


Nonsense. When he compares a black person to a monkey, that is not being taken out of context. He is not being misquoted; it's right there on Twitter in black and white. It is not being twisted.

ABE:

Sorry, it was Roseanne Barr who compared a black woman to a monkey. However, it's very easy to find racist quotes by Trump.

Edited by ringo, : Factual error.

I would think that if Trump were worried about context, he wouldn't make so much use of a medium that's limited to 280 characters.


And of course, the context is the rest of his Twitter posts.

The topic isnt Trump.


If the book was The Conspiracy to Claim That Elephants Are Big, wouldn't it be reasonable to show that elephants are, in fact, big? If elephants are in fact big, doesn't that rather negate the premise of tbe book? Isn't that actually a pretty important point in discussing the book?
