I like that statement. It reasserts that, currently, he isn't interested in dialogue, only "trolling," as he admitted earlier. He doesn't start topics to start discussions, he just wants to... I believe the phrase was "cause discomfort" and move on to another chance to "cause discomfort."NoOneFamous wrote: Hey Senior, leave Jay alone, it gives him something to do for him to think I give a damn what he says.
Giving a damn what Jay writes will just have to be another thing you and I will have to agree to disagree on, old buddy.NoOneFamous wrote: Hey Senior, leave Jay alone, it gives him something to do for him to think I give a damn what he says.
I second that.IcelofAngeln wrote: If there is a common denominator to these electoral shakeups, it is the politics of migration. The overthrown establishments all benefited from the economics of illegal immigration and used migrants as chits in a humanitarian sweepstakes in which the leader who signals the most virtue wins. Migration became a symbol for the "flat world" of globalization where not just people but also cultures, goods, and investments flowed freely, borders had little meaning, and sovereignty was pooled upwards to transnational bureaucracy as identity was reduced to racial, ethnic, religious, or sexual characteristics.

If you think of Trump's Twitter feed and off-the-cuff remarks as a laser pointer and his political opponents as cats, it suddenly all makes perfect sense.

Here's another question: If, at the beginning, Trump had told his top people "here's the broad strokes of what I want you to do. You focus on that while I keep all our political enemies all distracted and focused on me. Trust me, they'll be so obsessed with hating me you'll get a crap-ton of stuff done."
If he had done that, what would be different today?
Just a pet theory I've had. I got nothing to back it up except this: it's incredibly consistent with what's actually happened so far in the Trump administration.
