Can't make this (stuff) up

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Trump never grew out of the spoiled grade-school kid stage of life.
His mannerisms, general speech, and use of adjectives is an overwhelming example

He's always whining about being treated unfairly, always lies about nearly everything, and never owns up to anything he does like a man.
Because he's not done anything like a man? Yet?

A real tough guy indeed.
Yep. "Grab 'em by the...."

Trump tells AP he won't accept blame if GOP loses House

Because the mid terms aren't a referendum on him? :headscratch:

The Shadow Ban

The Hill: Steve King tells Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: 'Unlock my account' | TheHill.
https://thehill.com/homenews/house/4134 ... my-account

"the congressman asserted that much of his usual Twitter traffic has disappeared over the last several days, and said that he believed the company was using an algorithm to direct users away from his content.

"About 90 percent" of King's traffic has disappeared, the congressman said,"

"King said that "if we want to keep acting under the delusion that this is a free and open platform" then Dorsey must name the Twitter officials responsible for determining the site's content policy and use of alleged "shadow bans."


Yes Steve, there are delusional shadow bans. Time to take your pills.

If it was up to me I would say that he qualifies for a full award.
Death is usually involved, but he met the criteria.

VIDEO: Woman attacks McDonald's manager over ketchup

Lettuce hope that the police ketchup with her and throw the tomato's bun in jail before she really gets in a pickle.

I've created a monster.
There's a little extra sauce in that comment, what's your beef?
Me:
Thanks for asking. I'll share this nugget of wisdom with you - it was fishy of the staff to withhold the ketchup, but chicken of Pattie to run away. I'm really cheesed about it.
Others:
I'm as American as Apple Pie and not one to fillet the truth... whoever left the back door unlocked should tender his resignation. Seems cheesy, somewhat like drive-thru justice, but folks want to have a happy meal in peace... give 'em the ketchup and shake on it.
hahahaha....good one!
At least the manager fought back and didn't act like a chicken.
most of us hope she'll fry when they do take care of her bacon......
The lady who attacked the manager was definitely a bad sesame seed. Hopefully the police will mustard up all of their forces to catch her. Things like this can really shake a person up.
Not part of my thread but I like these:
what is the official mcdonald's policy on how managers should react when asked to 'give up the ketchup?'
did she get the ketchup?
give up the catsup and back away … keep the money … just the catsup … put it in a bag … all of it …
Yeah, but did she get fries with that?

So glad this didn't happen here. Especially if the spider killer was black.
