    Wow, what a snowflake!!


    Solution:
    Don't put yourself into the line of fire if you can't stand the heat.

    Or just tell less BS.

    I didn't think it was very funny. The Trump administration has done a lot of things that can be made fun of, but the tone came off as mean spirited while not really digging in to the essence of things that are wrong with the Trump White House.

    The best part of the night was Ryan. I liked how he poked fun at himself. Now if only he had some spine to stand up to Trump!

    Funny? No. Will it build bridges? No. But the Trump administration started the war by basing its campaign on accusing the media of everything and anything, so...

    A White House Correspondents Dinner without the President is like hosting the Rose Bowl Parade without floats. It sorta misses the point. I think the President's absence from this event says all we need to know about Donald Trump's character. He's a mean-spirited, humorless bully.

    But we all knew this before he got elected, and sixty-odd million of my fellow citizens voted for the jackass anyway. Shame on them. We'll all find out soon enough the dreadful cost of that awful decision.

    Was the WHCD funny? Not really, but that has more to do with the fact its just not that funny to watch half-bit comedians roast the woman who goes out every day and tells lies on the President's behalf. My sympathy for Sarah Huckabee Sanders is, however, tempered by the knowledge that she knew full well what she was getting into, and goes ahead and lies to her country and her fellow citizens anyway.

    Sanders is a professional apologist for a monster. She deserves everything she gets. **** her.

    It is subjective after all. Sanders is a big girl, just being there shows she can take it better then Trump but we all know that event is a roast event.

    That's why Trump chickened out. He prob has PTSD from the last time he was there.

    Last night, a comedian told some mean jokes about the president’s press secretary. At the same time, the president was holding a rally in which he accused Democrats of being anti-American and the press of being a bunch of liars. If you think the comedian is the one we should be more upset about, that’s pathetic.

    The only people who can match Trump in ego and narcissism are the media. Case in point the White House Correspondence Dinner:

    [​IMG]

    No, CNN this shindig isn’t about the first amendment. It’s where media and DC elites dress up in black tie and hobnob with each other over how great and important they are. And then bring comedians on stage to say vile and nasty things about people in the room (and those not there):

    No one has to tell me about the vile things Trump says and does. I don’t support him and never will. But when you become just like Trump he wins. So long as the media/Left/Democrats motto is ‘he goes low, we go lower’ Trump wins. Good job media. :rolleyes:

    Once again holding others more accountable than POTUS. Sad.

    Boo hoo. Whether you this the comedian was funny - she was telling jokes.

    Conversely, what Sanders, Trump and other say to people when it's not a "joke" is what you should be concerned about.

    Context matters.

    And among other things, at one point he asked the crowd if there were any Hispanics present.

    This wasn’t a roast. It was mean and nasty. And it allows Trump to play the persecuted victim again. Played right into his hands.

    The problem is you guys spent the whole entire 2016 campaign complaining about Trump's "insults" and claiming "When they go low, we go high."

    You also spend all the time claiming making fun of people's looks is bad and that "all women are beautiful."

    See the difference?

    Trump play victim even when it's not about him. We could have another 9/11 style attack tomorrow and Trump would find a way to make it about him. Let the snowflake whine, he'll do it regardless.

    When Trump says something mean, he's just joking.

    When a comedian says a joke, they are just being mean.


    Boo ****ing hoo

    Context. And stop generalizing "you" as if everyone thinks ONE way.

    What the heck are you talking about? Do you just have canned responses or something?

    Not sure who this was directed at but if you think a winning strategy for the Left is to match Trump in the vile and nasty department be prepared for a lot of losing. Marco Rubio has the scars to prove it.

    You haven't shown me you think differently (heh!) yet. So I will keep using "you."

    And what was the context? They went far beyond roasting.
