Tell me XO.   Who was more disrespectful.   Trump for not attending the funeral or Obama attending and then attacking Trump during his eulogy?

I am not appalled. Trump had a more important place to be. Wherever it was.

 

That's an unacceptable attitude.

How Trump's golf habits predicted his presidential ones

 

 

Where the heck was he? The Dems should get a warrant for his cell phone records to pinpoint his exact location during the funeral.

Trump did not attend John Lewis' funeral. He also skipped Lewis' memorial service in Washington, DC.

Former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton each delivered eulogies for Lewis at his funeral.

Here are 4 other major funerals Trump has missed while president:  Rep. Elijah Cummings, Rep. John Dingell, Sen. John McCain and former First Lady Barbara Bush.

 Former President Barack Obama appeared to take a jab at President Donald Trump at the funeral service of the late Rep. John Lewis in Atlanta on Thursday.

"Even as we sit here, there are those in power who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting," Obama said during his eulogy,   "John Lewis devoted his time on this earth fighting these very attacks on democracy."

Obama received a standing ovation from the crowd.

 

 

Would the 'nation' be less appalled if President Trump did attend? Doubtful

I believe they would be equally appalled. Those that like Trump would still like him. Those that dislike him would retain their dislike for him.

Trump would get flak from his racist base if he attended. Trump does not want to  give the impression that any Black life matters.

Herman Cain,74, went to Trump's  rally in Tulsa, caught the virus and died.

Will Trump attend HIS funeral?

 

 

Once again, ZERO PROOF...you disingenuous bastard...

Lewis would have been entirely down with Obama attacking Trump at his funeral. If you don't know this, you are an idiot.

Trump could not attend without losing some of his base.

Had Trump been President way back then, he would have sent Goons to accompany the  Alabama State Police at that bridge and you know it.

Trump would have been down with Bull Conners and all he stood for.

Had nothing to do with his base. Had he attended he would have been attacked for turning the event into a campaign speech. Not one liberal alive honestly wanted him to attend. Not one. His absence wasn't missed and should rather be applauded. Democrats got to plant a 17 term congressman without a single noteworthy piece of legislation attached to him. Trump got to avoid any accusations of making the funeral about himself. Everybody won with his decision. 

 

Trump will obviously attend Cains funeral. Will Obama?

Ok then

He didn't attend Bush's inauguration, calling him a fake president. The fact Bush eulogized the man gave me even less respect for Bush.

The fact he gave a speech for a man who refused to attend his inauguration and called him an illegitimate president is unfortunate. 

 

Fact is no one wanted Trump to attend. Attacking him for not doing so is disingenuous. He should definitely attend Ruth Bader Ginsbergs funeral. 😁

so we can say that Lewis refused to attend a white man's inauguration unless he was a Democrat...

Fair assessment. He left the best part of himself on a bridge in the 1960s.

Lewis refused to attend Trump's inauguration...

 

And then....

 

In January 2001, Lewis boycotted the inauguration of George W. Bush by staying in his Atlanta district. He did not attend the swearing-in because he did not believe Bush was the true elected president.[87]

 

 

In October 2008, Lewis issued a statement criticizing the campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin and accusing them of "sowing the seeds of hatred and division" in a way that brought to mind the late Gov. George Wallace and "another destructive period" in American political history. McCain said he was "saddened" by the criticism from "a man I've always admired," and called on Obama to repudiate Lewis's statement. Obama responded to the statement, saying that he "does not believe that John McCain or his policy criticism is in any way comparable to George Wallace or his segregationist policies

They would have had a meltdown either way.

 

Trump is "disrespectful" for not going, but would have been "showboating" if he had gone.

Had Trump been around to march across the Pettis Bridge, he would have called in with a bone spur rather than be clubbed by a cop.

Trump is pusillanimous, he hires goons and lawyers, he is too cowardly to actually fight..

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.


  • By teacher

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me. 


  • By teacher

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    Some few days before the next election Mr. Fools is gonna pin my horse thread. it's gonna be horrible, I shall endevour every day to bring some some fresh. 

     

    I still own this cat box.


  • By teacher

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."


  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 


  • Where’s all the hot bitches? 


  • By teacher

    Kidding me? 


  • How do I get rid of this chatroom box?


  • How do I get rid of this chatroom box?


  • Get me out of Chatbox!


  • By jefftec

    The chatbox stays expanded and is a nuisance blocking screen images. What setting is there to control/collapse chatbox?


  • By kfools

    Just click the no holds barred to collapse it.


  • By XavierOnassis

    diddle dee dee


  • By teacher

    Like Jesse Ventura said to all that would not take a chew in the movie "Predator." LF.org is a political debate forum. This chatbox just ups the opportunity to go at it. Ya'll have your political views, seems to me that ya'll should have thought these things out and be ready to battle. 


  • By teacher

    Is real time political debate a thing ya'll hide from? What do you morons do if you happen to run into some one with opposing political views on the street? 


  • By teacher

    I've never ran into anyone, in real life,  that said Obama lied. I run into folks that tell me Trump lies. I'm at work. I didn't bring it up. I don't reply, I'm representing a company. Not my place. 


  • By teacher

    Lookie there, all I have to do is get out and come back. Why is it that liberals, when they have a company man before them decide they that is the time they go off? Why would ya'll put a company man into that position? 


  • By teacher

    Chatbox is mine.
