    He's incapable of telling the truth, even for **** that doesn't matter. All stems from his fragile teenage ego.

    Obama looked like an assclown who couldn't control the crowd, no one respects him. If you watch his speech he reminds me of a dad threatening to pull over the car to his kids, but the kids know he's full of ****.

    10 point awarded to Zombie Arcon for deflection.

    Wether Obama can control a crowd or should have acted different is of no concern as he will be the lame-duck president in 3 days.

    Now one of the candidates lying bout something such trivial despite evidence to the opposite on easy to obtain "tape" actually does shed a rather bad light on what kindof person might get voted into the white house.

    I don't think Donald Trump - and apparently a good number of his supporters - understand the first thing about leadership.

    Leadership isn't telling the crowd what they want to hear. Any fool can shout "free pizza!" or "lock her up!". That's not leadership. Leadership is persuading your audience to do the right thing. To summon forth the better angels of our nature.

    People are (rightly) complaining about the ugly nature of this campaign. Well, if they are looking for the source of this, they can look no further than Donald J. Trump. A disgusting individual who has built his entire campaign on appeals to hatred, division, violence, and dishonesty. About building walls, about torture, about plunder, theft, selfishness, and greed.

    Leadership means being the grownup in the room. And leadership means telling a crowd - even if it's your crowd, especially if it's your crowd - that booing and violence are not the answer. They don't solve anything. Obama was right to tell the people in that room the only proper response to the hatred and lies of Donald Trump is this: Vote.

    That's the way we do things in this country.

    It's absolutely alarming that virtually half the country is giving this walking disaster of a human being a pass while making up BS about his opponent. Integrity = ZERO. Sorry about sounding like a broken record, but this country maybe in deep ****. :oops:

    And yet the message he was trying to get across was far more Presidential then Trump has ever exhibited.

    Wishful thinking on the part of the righties.

    The fact is, crowds that go to see genuine statesmen like Obama are FED UP with BS from the Trumplings. I'm not surprised that the crowd got angry.

    You know what you didn't see? You didn't see the crowd get out of control, like Trump's. You didn't see Obama egging them on, as Trump would. You didn't see anyone take a swing at the protestor or hurl him to the ground, like they do at Trump's rallies. You did see Obama get the crowd under control. You did see Obama defend the man's right to an opinion.

    That is presidential behavior. That is leadership. Not like Donald and his childish Trumper tantrums.

    You Trumpets are seriously criticizing him for protecting a Trump supporter from the backlash of a group. If Trump did this you all would be praising him. Talk about bias.

    Interesting how no Trump supporter is coming in here justifying or defending this lie. I guess you guys understand that what he said is total BS. But then how do you support someone who spews a continual stream of BS about people and events? How do you seperate fact from fiction? It's not presidential.

    You have to understand that rank partisans will attack Obama no matter what.

    And, as such their opinions are about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.

    Meanwhile, it's clear to anyone not actually crazy that Trump is lying about the interaction between Obama and the protestor.

    Trump is a reflexive liar. He lies. Constantly.

    What's your point? I don't think anyone has ever argued that Trump was a good candidate, just better than the criminal running against him.

    My point was just what I said. As for being better then Hillary, that's entirely subjective.

    The thread title could have ended with the word lies.

    I think you've missed watching certain television shows. I won't call these shows news because they aren't news shows. But people have argued that he is a good candidate and that only he can make 'merica great again. Not only that, people have also argued that he is a great businessman and that proves he can run the country (like a business of course).
