    So you condone the office of the president to troll the world? Sounds childish and beneath the office.

    How would you know whether it can be done? It is not like anyone had to try...

    Media outlets taking things out of context and twisting it into something else to manipulate public political opinion seems far worse.

    It's like nobody has ever heard of a joke/quip a person made about themselves before. I suppose if those people want to continue thinking something different other than what it is, eh.

    WHat that was a joke? Nobody ever jokes about being the chosen one being Jesus Christ unless they mean it. There's such a thing as topics nobody jokes about unless its true.

    When I was in the old folks home, there was this male nurse. He flirting with nurses pinching their buts all the time. They didn't mind so I didn't report him but he even flirted with me . HE use to come in my room and talk to me about his family or what was on tv he was unusual. I was watching a show on intervention. I had already recognized signs of sex addiction in him but I didn't care, he was my friend.

    Anyways he said ,he came to my bed and said I've got an addiction but its not on drugs or alcohol.I said what is it? In a deep low crazy voice he said I'm a LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ADDICT HUHUHHAHA . Well i said I am too.I didn't have an issue on that. however If had accused him of saying he would have said the same thing" OHHHHHHH I was just kidding you know me.

    But to be honest people just don't say stuff like that unless they believe it even if its a jokes, it s a way of getting truth out without dealing with it, laugh about it. Nobody says stuff like unless they are a sex addict. Ive seen alcoholics do the same thing huhuhuh haha I'm just a drunken bum .Nobody makes jokes about that a accept alcoholics. Nobody sits around joking about being the chosen one or the Christ nobody does that.

    Absolutely.


    The point isn't so much that Trump may actually see himself as the "chosen one"---a not so unreasonable possibility---but that the concept of "the chosen one" would even pop into mind.

    Nope. I think it's time to bring in the men in white coats

    Trump is only pretending to be a complete imbecile as a part of his master plan. Love the attempt at damage control. Keep it coming.
    Yeah, "trolling". Good save. :rolleyes:

    I imagine that "the devil" would be immensely charismatic and intelligent being. Donald would be a low-level impling that scrubs the devil's toilet.

    You what I think? Trump is too old to be president! That's why hes mentally il! Maybe he should legalize pot and start smoking some, it would help him loosen up and relax so others could do his job for him without him freaking out all over the place.

    Confirmed. People have no sense of humour and TDS. They also like playing armchair doctor.

    Pretty much. I saw a few interviews with him at the time, and he was def flaky.
    Riders’ point that people don’t make jokes like that unless there is some truth to it is valid, based on my experience.

    I saw a few cases of messianic delusion in my acid-headed youth. Charismatic hippies losing it... I think both Carrey and Trump qualify.

    “They think I’m just joking....the fools !”

    I don’t think he wanted to be President. I think it was a PR/ego thing, and he didn’t expect to win. So he doesn’t take it seriously.

    Look at all his tweets. How much time does he spend bull*****ing online ?
    Little wonder he is clueless. That time should be spent researching all the detail he needs to be on top of, but instead he wastes huge amounts of time playing the class clown

    His heart (such as it is) isn’t in it.
