Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, August 15, 2019

[Donald] Trump, who infamously rated women's looks on Howard Stern's radio show prior to his campaign, has occasionally discussed women's appearances while in office -- sometimes to call them beautiful, sometimes to call them ugly. But the vast majority of his public words about looks as President have been admiring remarks about men, most often men in uniform. Whether it's generals or first responders, Trump likes people he believes look the part and dismisses people he believes do not. ... Since April, Trump has described people as "central casting" 10 times, "good-looking" or "great-looking" 11 times -- including one tweet in which he called himself "so great looking and smart."

Rick Wilson, a Republican consultant who is sharply critical of Trump, said the President's compliments of men in uniform are a reflection of both his reality TV past and "his own personal sense of weakness."

"They're lean, they're tough and they're strong, and it's all the polar opposite of a man who thinks that exercise is walking from the golf cart to the green," Wilson said.

Odd, I've never heard that reported at all. But so what? The implication is that it is wrong for a man to comment on a man's looks. Do I detect leftie hypocrisy? It's much like when Pinchaloaf called me 'goatwoman' as if it is an insult to be called a woman while most people see women as equals.

I am so old that I can remember when CNN was a reputable news source and didn't focus on things like this.

I'm so old I remember when Presidents understood that looks are not the measure of a man or a woman's abilities, and Presidential supporters respected and accepted that physical appearances were not the measure of those who achieved great things.

You mean like JFK and Marilyn Monroe? Her looks had nthing to do with him taking her under his wing? It was her superb abilities to do...well, to do what, exactly?

But in another sense, you are correct. Bill Clinton was a sexual harrasser who obviously didn't care what his women looked like! LOL

Disunderstanding the essence of comments is Goatman's super power. With it, he can ignore all that might potentially require a serious discussion.

Addressing the actual point is Kryptonite to the Goat.

I see Goatman fears the Kryptonite in this thread, which, as we who read the thread are aware, discusses Trump's obsession with men's looks.

That comparison makes no sense. Trump is talking about generals, Supreme Court justices and Cabinet officials. He isn't talking about a woman he's banging.

What exactly does this suggest to you, OWS?

That Trump is gay; likes men? finds them sexually attractive?

Where do you imagine this bus is going?

Too funny. You have four posts on this thread and not a single one is about the topic -- every one of them is about me or something I posted.

Conclusion? You are a raging hypocrite and you once again prove you are morbidly obsessed with me.

Plonks are essentially useless until they also turf posters from the "recent comments" page.

I wish for all my fellow citizens to return to appreciating good looking aesthetics. We have slipped into the slob zone in the last few decades. Just look at our once proud cities. Garbage people and environment. You must seek out the beauty since so many just don't give a hoot anymore. Look at architecture for example, mostly nonsense crap in the post ww2 era.

I came back with the numbers I left with (note my seniority number) But you guys brag about this? The top 17 on the killfile list are conservatives. So who's plonking them? Snowflake, thin skinned liberals. Not much to be proud of Joe and Yav. Unless, of course you like your side being portrayed as snowflakes.

So killfile away, snowflakes!

Actually, I don't think they are useless. They go to show who the thin skinned snowflakes are. Top 17 on the killfile list are conservatives, and they aren't killfiling each other. Must be some snowflake who prefers an echo chamber so his wittle feelings aren't hurt.

Of course. DR Leftists start sucking their thumbs and crying for mommy when they see a contrary point of view. As well as calling for expelling posters that violate their safe space.

Still not as bad as that creepy weirdo Hans, who would post about sniper's "37 plonks" 20 times a day. That's not just pathetic; it's mental illness.

Danforth, Have:. I do not speak for Mackris, but I'm pretty sure his point was not about the he's in finding the data.

Anyway, isn't it funny how those thin-skinned plonkers are like the college kids who see the word Trump and have to seek psychological counseling? LOL. but here they can create their own little private echo chamber so they're fragile feelings won't get trod upon. And I'm sure they are posting from a safe place. LOL

We shouldn't disparage trump's appreciation of male attention. First, hetero biological tendencies. Also first, homosexual male tendencies. Neither really ok to disparage regardless especially as so called liberals. Is it somehow his fault but no other males with possible homosecual appreciations that they have been mislead by societal pressures?

Homophobism is something you say when you can't think of the word "homophobia".

Had to happen as the Democrats ran out of Black Racism labels to call our President.

The way I see it, folks get plonked if they're a waste of time. I've plonked three, after giving them every opportunity to contribute. One is dumb as a rock, one is a dishonest Nazi, and one is just downright dishonest.

Hmmm....after reading those barometers, now I'm wondering why more aren't plonked.
