Who accepts him as an idol? He's got his faults but he was certainly better than the plutocrat trash he beat in the election to become London mayor.
He's also better than the trash coming from the plutocrat trash family across the Atlantic.
Are you going to talk about virtue signaling now?

It's just trash coming from trash. Mr Khan dismissed it with the attention it deserved.

"That's how you catch those right wing nuts- by having law-abiding muslims turn the bad ones in."
This is a critical problem in the Muslim community in the UK. Poll results on the reluctance to turn in people involved in terror were absolutely horrifying.

"By whom? At the time of writing the UK authorities have not described the attacker this way, in fact they have given zero information on the attacker. It's just speculation based on bigotry."
True. It's all just speculation at the moment.
I don't know who did it but I wouldn't bet against a religious crackpot. Would you?

A bit of a cruel way to silence more rowdy inmates of a psychiatric institution.

"He himself believed in the hype by the J-media while playing in the backwater Russian league portraying him as the best player in the team when he wasn't"
I don't remember AC Milan looking to buy his teammates when he played for CSKA Moscow. I could be mistaken but I don't think so.
Were AC Milan carried away by the hype they read in the Japanese newspapers or what they watched on Japanese TV?
I get the sense they looked at his performances. That's how teams generally choose to buy players.

"As I have often said here on JT, the wicks are LIT & its only a question of WHEN China will IMPLODE/EXPLODE or both!"
People have been saying this for decades. They were saying it under Mao and Deng. I get the feeling they'll continue saying it for decades to come.
The CCP will stay in power as long as they deliver economic growth. The election of Trump in the US is as bad an advertisement for changing to a democratic system as you could imagine.

What? He's admitted he's to blame for the criticism he's been getting.
Where is the sense of entitlement? I can't find it. He's been regarded as Japan's best player by many because of his record in international games and in particular his performances in World Cup tournaments.

"Out on April 15 ahead of Record Store Day a week later, the instrumental 14-minute, 57-second version of Interstellar Overdrive will be released as a one-sided, 12-inch black vinyl record."
One clearly for the hardcore Pink Floyd fans. I think the version on Piper at the Gates of Dawn is meandering nonsense and I quite like Pink Floyd.

Lay off the religious imagery. The sectarianism created by this played a major role in the filthy barbarism from both sides.

No sense of romantic freedom fighter about him. Always had the air of a thug and a track record to back it up.

"But many of us are not that partisan and will criticize Trump if he is wrong on the issues as I have done."
When was that? What issues are you talking about?

"Exactly, he's president, not a God and not perfect"
Nobody is expecting him to be perfect. They should expect a level of behaviour befitting the position. Trash claims with zero evidence isn't acceptable for civilised people.
"the previous president 44 thought of himself as omnipotent, so yes, Trump is a president and a man that shouldn't have to take stuff just because the establishment aren't happy, they can all go and pound sand."
The previous president had to "take stuff" like bigots making baseless claims about him not being a US citizen. One of those people has a disturbing habit of this. He also had to "take stuff" from ignorant bigots claiming he was a Muslim. He also had to "take stuff" from screaming lunatics about being the anti-Christ. He dealt with this trash with dignity and didn't start bawling on Twitter.
He wasn't perfect but certainly a man who took stuff with real class.
Ah, class. Remember that?

"But Trump does need to be more careful with his words when he throws out these accusations, even if there isn't any tangible evidence."
Not really a question of being more careful with words. More a question of not throwing out baseless accusations against former presidents and key allies with zero evidence.
This is the president of the US, not a trash tabloid. Then again, the two are becoming disturbingly similar these days.

"Obama already wiretapped PM Merkel as a fact and as precedence so I dont get that people believe he could never do such a thing"
This sentence is now trotted out by Trump supporters non-stop.
Claims require evidence. It's that simple. Stating that someone is capable of doing it will not wash as evidence.
As I stated before, it's very interesting to watch the Trump supporters turn into evasive politicians while taking delight in the fact that their leader sounds like a tantrum-throwing brat.
JimizoMar. 21, 2017 - 12:42PM JST
Do you have anything to say about Trump's trash about wiretapping? Anything at all?
It's interesting that while Trump supporters liked the idea of a non-politician leading the country, they have to do all kinds of mental contortions, deflections and evasions in order to defend him. They sound like seasoned politicians already.

"I know you started caring deeply about the image of the US abroad since Obama's victory in 2008 after 8 years of a disasterous presidency and damaging the image of the US, but I think you should still care."
That makes very little sense to me. I can only assume from the confusing grammar that "since Obama's victory in 2008 after 8 years of a disastrous presidency" refers to the Bush years. Should "since" be replaced with "after"?
So, you think that Trump is improving the image of the US abroad?

"Please give just one example of rudeness or vitriol towards Trump from Theresa May"
"I wasn't necessarily talking about her, I was talking more others and the so much who we elect anyway....I could care less who's the PM in the U.K. or Chancellor im Germany. They can all and should worry about themselves."
I remember one government minister, Boris Johnson, talking about Trump being "insane". It was very similar to you calling the Trump movement a "Lunatic fringe". Johnson, like you, changed his opinion when Trump looked like winning the GOP nomination. He tends to speak about him in more reserved terms while the you have gone completely head over heels on the lunatic fringe since your Damascene conversion.
Who leads important allies is very important. The image of the US abroad is also important. I know you stopped caring about the image of the US abroad since Trump's victory after hammering Obama for damaging the image of the US, but I think you should still care.

"Making claims without evidence based on the partisan ideas of the trash right MSM is what leadership looks like?"
"It's a game. The MSM slaves can't understand that, the corporate MSM CEO's are laughing at you, as am I."
Trump sounds like an MSM slave. He blurts out whatever he saw on the trash right MSM Fox News. Is the CEO of Fox laughing at Trump?
The power of the crackpot conspiracy nutcase sites amuses you.
