    Because the President has never insulted anyone....
    You obviously haven't read the posts that went before your intervention.

    Cliche, it may or may not be. True, it certainly is.
    Stop presenting your opinion as if it were a fact.

    It's equally fair to argue that sucking up to Mr Trump (with everything he's done/said/ stands for) is not in our interests.

    What is in 'our interests' is an inherently challengable claim.

    How old are you? 5?

    Except I didn't present it as a fact, I clearly made out it was simply my opinion.

    Yes and not a very well thought out opinion.

    In your opinion...

    I think your opinion about my opinion was not a very well thought out opinion, in my opinion.

    Picture in the papers today of Bercow behind the Emir of Kuwait as he addressed Parliament in 2012.

    Kuwait where homosexuality is illegal, yes that Kuwait.

    Simple hypocrisy and vitrue signalling on a grand scale.

    And that is, in your opinion, "achieving a great many things"?

    :teehee:
    The Nobel Committee seemed to agree with Ladbants on this one. I don't, though.

    A BBC newsreader made a fair point: If the leaders of Kuwait: a country which has banned homosexuality, and of China: a country with a questionable human rights record, are allowed to speak in parliament why isn't Donald Trump? Is it for making sexist remarks towards women over a decade ago? Or is it for taking a controversial stance on immigration? In my opinion it's a double standard to allow someone who advocated the criminalisation of homosexuality to speak in parliament, but not Trump.

    a) Not a presidential action, shouldn't count
    b) Who doesn't like young and beautiful people?


    a) Not a presidential action, shouldn't count
    b) Have you seen Ivanka?



    He has a point. I mean, Hillary as President ... really?



    It is sad when that happens


    What's wrong with controlling illegal immigration?
    Good grief!

    1
    a) Might not be a presidential action, but it sure reflects on his personality a lot! Like, that's the kind of person who America thinks is "great"?
    b) This comment just shows how shallow he is, as by the looks of things is the same way as his followers.

    2
    a) same as 1 a)
    b) Yes, but a father saying he'd WILLINGLY do that to his daughter is incestuous. I'd actually freak out of my dad or another male relative ever said that about me / to me, whether I was physically there or not. Again same as 1 b) except this just shows you guys are massively shallow WITHOUT morals.

    3
    a) I mean she wasn't racist, sexist, or say anything horrible about people. As an outsider who doesn't have much knowledge on american politics at all, she seemed like the nicer candidate with better morals.

    a) I can't believe this one... You seriously think a wall will stop illegal immigration?...

    The funny thing about Bercow's comments on an address for the Royal Gallery is that it is where multiple presidents have made addresses from, and where Khrushchev made his address from.

    If Trump isn't allowed to speak, Sean 'Spice It Up' Spicer or Kelleyanne Conway should be given a chance. They're comedy gold.

    Apparently, Muslims are to be held to a lower standard than non-Muslims.

    According to those staunch campaigners for equality on the left.

    a) Just because it's not a presidential action, it still shows the type of person he is and do you really want something that disrespectful running this country?

    b) And he didn't just say young and beautiful but a big piece of a** like. Dude. Wth. How shallow can you get?!


    2
    a) Basically, that's his personality. And he is running one of the most influential countries in the WORLD.

    b) Are you serious?! That's his freakin' daughter! he is speaking of his daughter in a sexual way. HE is speaking of HIS DAUGHTER in a SEXUAL way. Like bruh. Puh-leaze.


    3
    a) Ok, sure she doesn't have the best morals in the world but come on, she's way more responsible than HIM. At least she won't destroy the whole world with nuclear bombs like I mean Trump can't even handle his own damn twitter and you trust him with enough bombs to blow up the entire universe!!!!!!

    a) HE WANTS TO SEPARATE THE COUNTRIES CUZ HE THINKS THAT MEXICANS ARE BAD AND ARE CORRUPTING AMERICA. DUDE. HE IS CORRUPTING AMERICA!

    Daily reminder that this loser with no power is literally a cuck.

    >http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/poli...is-cousin.html

    Jesus, the UK is becoming more of a joke every year. In 20 years time, we'll most likely be out of the top 10 most powerful countries in the world.

    How can you take this manchild seriously?
