He's talking about showing an ID card when you pay for your groceries with a credit card. If people can't comprehend that it's their fault, not Trump's.

Admittingly, I read just that part of the transcript only. Your logic makes complete sense.

I am not scared, just saddened. I have never been asked for ID at a grocery store, nor have I ever seen it happen to someone else. Where the hell would someone shop that they get carded unless buying alcohol?

I can keep posting his own words, I do not have to wait very long for the next Trumpism I am sure. Feel free to keep trying to twist them for logic.

You've never been ID'd for using a credit card?

Holy nuggets. Trump probably last bought groceries in person in the days of always having to sign for your charge. Before debit cards. Before apple pay. The point is that you need an ID to do trivial things like sign up for a phone plan or buy groceries with a credit card in 1993 or any number of absurd things. Why should you not need an ID to prove you are casting your vote and no one else is casting your vote? Secondly, why would you not want an ID? I can think of any number of reasons why every citizen should have one.

I get id’d using my debit and credit cards, not often but it happens. I ALWAYS thank the cashier when this happens.

Totally agree.

I don't understand why this is a point of contention. If you're too incompetent, apathetic, lazy, or shady to simply get an ID, that's probably a good barometer of your voting "fitness". I don't shed a tear for anyone in that predicament.

That being said, Trump grew up with a silver spoon up his ass. People from wealth like that aren't raised like normal people. It would not surprise me if he's never bought his own groceries his entire life, and has no idea WTF he's talking about in that regard.

Never. Maybe it comes up more in another state, but I have been around and not seen it. I am not against voter id per se, but there has not been any real evidence of voter fraud around this. It is a fear tactic, if you do not like the results of the vote just cry voter fraud. I have to show ID to vote, no issue for me.

Look at his choice for acting AG, first he is a great guy, then he does not know him really, he says. I have to believe he has some smart folks around him that counsel him on this stuff, but he just says whatever is on the top of his head.

Take any of his speeches, and run it through any of the sites that determine reading level. He speaks like a 5th grader running for class treasurer.

Rake the little trees, man.

Trump made similar remarks in an interview with Fox News? Chris Wallace scheduled to air on Sunday.

“ I was watching the firemen the other day and they were raking areas, they were raking areas where the fire was right over there,”Trump said in the interview. “And they?re raking trees, little trees like this that are not trees, little bushes that you could see are totally dry. Weeds. And they?re raking them, they?re on fire. That should have been all raked out. You wouldn?t have the fires.”

What should he have said? Bushes? Small trees? What would make you happy with that interview response?

And here we are, nameless avatars on the intertard arguing about how he does or doesn't suck and he's President of the United States of America........that speaks volumes.

At some point people just need to get over it and realize it's been two fucking years since he was elected. It's time to move forward.. I don't know one rational person who was still crying two years after Obama was elected...the fucktards and Scott sure but not normal people......

That’s just how Trump talks. No different than Obama saying ‘Um’ ever other sentence. All this grasping at straws leaves one such subject tired.

Chuckles can't name why he disagrees with Trump, only that he does not like his style. That's why Chuckles is not worth responding to.

Looks like you responded.

Let me elaborate.

He is not nearly as smart as you want to believe he is. He proves my point with his words.

Was that simple enough for you or do we need the graphs and charts again?

He is willfully ignorant. And he has access to too much to be so ignorant. He lies more than most, even when there is nothing to gain, and even when it makes him look even more ignorant.

On the back of my credit cards next to my sig I write “see ID”. Pisses me off when some kid doesn’t even bother to check.

Something more intelligent than a response from a second grader?

Not complete bullshit that he got advice from Finland?

Maybe he should have just STFU instead of trying to pretend he ?knows more than the professionals??

But, then again, who needs actual knowledge and/experience, right?

Your derangement blocks your rational thought, if you have any left.

On the east coast, in the National Forests, they do controlled burns. Prescribed fire. Mainly to combat forest fires. Lots of other neat benefits that go along with it, but the controlled burns are primarily to control wild fires. Makes sense to me. Doubt this was advice from Finland as we already to it here, just not as much in California. The "professionals" are too busy banning plastic straws to pay attention.

Did he say you prevent forest fires by sweeping up all the dead leaves?

No, I didn't think he did.

Your #whataboutism is showing.

The Chicken Hawk bashes a venerated commander. Cue the Trumpets to tell us how shitty of a commander McRaven was, and that if Trump was in charge we would have found Bin Laden in a month.

Trump suggests venerated Navy SEAL commander should have found bin Laden faster
