Biggest myth: hes a tough guy

Sam Clench

... His endless spats and Twitter tantrums reveal a man who is thin-skinned, self-obsessed and pathetically insecure.

Trump, who has more power and responsibility than anyone else on the planet, wastes his days in the White House obsessing over pointless feuds and satisfying his compulsive need to whine about every perceived grievance.

Why? Because the only thing Trump truly cares about is making himself look good. No policy is more important than boosting his ego. No lie is too outrageous if itís in service to his self-esteem.

Consider the depressingly stupid week-long spat over Trumpís condolence call to a fallen soldierís widow ...

13. Concur, but this flaming faggot will beg to allow that one in context.

Certainly are worse slurs including my own self-depricating remark. Just in case someone decides to flag my post, Yes, I am queer as a three dollar bill, horribly PTSD'd from a homeless escape from extraordinary bullying, imminent homocide from Fred Phelps relatives, used to have nightmares about the number of times "faggot" replaced my name till I had extensive therapy to recover.
Yet I'll say it too. Donald Trump, god what a nancy boy.

17. I don't think so, it's a slur against Nancy

My little Sister and best friend who passed away from brain cancer two years ago.

I know for a fact she'd laugh her head off.

You I could give a shit less about.

8. Why is it the worst thing a man can be called...is a "girl"?

 

Also the worst things women can be called.

16. Because women are perceived as weak

 

And when you complain every time someone does it you sort of confirm it. Obviously we should strive for better but the world is a messy place.

Most shrug it off and move on when they are faced with a slur.

Just the pretence that the worst thing a man can be called is a woman is weak.

Plenty of things men can be called that are equally bad if not worse.

Like it or not men are raised in this world told they must be strong. When we stop doing that then perhaps any slur against men that implies weakness will cease to be effective.

In all his history there isn't a single hint of him being physical ...with a man.

21. Interesting. I have always wondered if he had ever gotten into a physical altercation with

a man - as an adult. Considering his personality and his habit of screwing people over, it amazes me that nobody has ever tried to beat him to a bloody pulp. I am pretty sure he avoids it because he knows that he would be the loser and it would be an unbearable blow to his ego.

I know I could physically hurt him and I am a 68yo woman. We cancer survivors are tough.

he is said to admire leaders that he considers to be tough guys, such as Hitler, Putin and Duterte.

9. Who thinks he's a tough guy? He hasn't done a day of work in his life, he's soft.

 

He eats junk food, rides golf carts, hasn't done anything for himself. The roughest edge he ever had was when he started collecting switchblades as a youth, which got him sent to boarding school when daddy found out.

He probably gets manicures, and demands a discount due to the tiny hands thing. He is by no means a tough guy.

11. That's exactly what I've been saying...

 

he is the biggest sissy I've ever seen. He whines and cries constantly, sobbing and sniveling about "fake news!" Anyone famous who insults him gets him triggered and he races to Twitter like the little snowflake he is to shriek about them. He has no backbone, no gut, no stamina. Fucking sissy even rides in a golf cart when others walk.

I have no idea why the blue collar types love him. He's never seen outside a suit unless he's golfing for the 10,304,340 time. He couldn't fix a tractor if you put a gun to his head. He doesn't drive a pickup and uses lower-income people to suit his needs. He has spent his life huckstering rubes and selling real estate. He has zero track record of doing jack shit for the blue collar community.

And yet these idiots think he's some kind of "alpha male" as if just bluster and fuming actually made someone a man.

14. Sadly, however, there is video of him being violent

I'm sure the Deplorables get a hard-on when watching the WWF video of him physically attacking someone and then humiliating him. I pre-screened some YouTube clips of this incident, but will not post them here for a couple of reasons.
1. The video shows what has been well established: Drumpf is a bully who will surprise-attack and occasionally overwhelm his opponent through dirty, underhanded tricks; and
2. I don't want to drive up the hit-counter on this debasement of what-should-be entertainment.

Early in my life, I developed a disdain and contempt for so-called professional wrestling. Nonetheless, the Deplorables and other hard-of-thinking people out there view this as legitimate entertainment or sport, and relish watching it.

Google it if you must, but I recommend doing so on an empty stomach.

19. You have a point about the wrestling fans know it is fake.

At the same time they react as if it is real. Fake Wrestling, Fake President while maintaining news is fake.

24. absolutely not. I embrace their meme.

 

Like most of their insults, when they call us snowflakes, it comes from a point of complete ignorance.

Snowflakes are beautiful and individual.

Sure, alone they are fragile, but when they are numerous, they can close down cities, collapse roofs and buildings, shut down power grids, make travel impossible. They can also clear off entire mountain sides and sweep away everything in their path.

Even when they do melt, they feed and provide life.

When you really sit back and think about it critically, pretty much all of their bags of insults come from a point of ignorance. They like to use the word pussy as if it was some kind of slur... the very thing that all human life comes from. Certainly a hell of a lot more useful, and tough than ball-sacks. Now that would be a slur.. dangles there, ugly wrinkled flesh that if just lightly grazed the wrong way can bring those "tough guys" down to their knees.

Their slurs are ignorant, and frankly I refuse to give them power over me by allowing them the continued use of them as slurs.

I'm a liberal snowflake, and f'n proud of it!

He is not worthy of that title. I'd say he's more of a drip of piss that hangs on after a whiz.. the useless stinky kind that somehow, no matter how hard you shake, still ends up running, unwanted, down the leg.

23. SHS is always going on about him being "strong" and "tough" but he is anything but.

Anyone with half a brain can see that all his bravado and bluster is nothing more than a cover for his weakness and cowardice. He is the very opposite of strong. If he ever had to be in a situation where he was up against a truly strong, powerful person he would probably wet himself and hide behind the sofa for weeks.

25. That description would fit.....

anyone of the Trump cabal. Look what happened to Roger Stone today. He's usually unflappable, but he lost all contact with reality in his twitter meltdown. In a group, they're tough guys, but taken one by one, chicken shits. There isn't a real man among them all, and that includes KelleyAnne Conway, Huckleberry-Sanders, and Plastic-faced Ivanka.
