Trump supporters, I'll bet you didn't know this about the Donald. Changed your mind yet?

Posted by: Texas14

Donald Trump admitted he does not know the difference between Hamas and Hezbollah, and he doesn't care. Here's proof: http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/sep/04/donald-trump-difference-between-hamas-hezbollah-quds-kurds Can you people please stop supporting this idiot?

I supported him, but now that I know this I've started to doubt his intelligence.

So?

I am not saying i support him but this does not change the way i think of him.

I don't know the difference either. My foreign policy advisers can explain that to me. He probably has nonideal the difference between a soft 16 and a hard 16 in black jack, but his casinos perform pretty well.

@Texas14 - I wish you well in your attempt to restore your party to sanity. Good luck!

If you people are that worried about Trump, then he's doing something right. So negative and so hateful. I know the difference, because I read unlike admittedly half the people in my party. The days of William F. Buckley, Jr. Are gone I'm afraid. Honestly, I'm disappointed to learn that he doesn't know the difference, because he should. However, I think a lot of people fail to understand or even desire to understand his form of intelligence, which is bigotry in my book, because he's a fellow ESTP and our cognitive functions work a certain way to quickly analyze a situation and solve problems in the moment. That's what he's good at and that's what makes him a great leader. Of course he's going to need good advisers and has learning to do, but what really prepares you to be leader of the free world?

So.. At this point we are using Myers Briggs as selection criteria? Wonderful. I look forward to the GOP run.
Varrack says2015-09-07T01:00:51.7706462Z
Come on, you could've used far better things for bashing Trump. I don't like him but this isn't that big of a deal.
TBR says2015-09-07T01:04:03.1436512Z
Varrack - That may be true, but you know the difference and you are a HS student that frequents a debate site. Shouldn't that say something about the guy?
Huntress says2015-09-07T01:38:03.7459319Z
No, many of you unwittingly use unfair ESTP stereotypes against Trump, but because we're not one of your protected groups you don't care, because you're intolerant.
triangle.128k says2015-09-07T02:06:48.0093848Z
@Huntress I have an ESTP personality, and I dislike Trump. What's your point?
PericIes says2015-09-07T02:16:49.3183034Z
I am an INTJ. Therefore, I am an evil genius. *Looks at triangle* Come, Igor, activate the machine! MWAHAHAHAHA!
triangle.128k says2015-09-07T02:32:30.6252733Z
Sorry, I don't get the reference..?
TBR says2015-09-07T02:33:55.6218182Z
@Huntress - You want personally type pseudoscience to be recognised as some sort of group like LGBT, Black, etc? Well, there is something new.
PericIes says2015-09-07T02:41:10.7170072Z
@triangle Evil villains in movies and stories and whatnot are generally INTJ's. :P
triangle.128k says2015-09-07T03:17:27.6797620Z
Lol, why did I never realize that?
PericIes says2015-09-07T04:11:33.9464278Z
I don't know, Igor. Now, quit your blabbering and ACTIVATE THE DEVICE!
58539672 says2015-09-07T05:05:39.2124458Z
INTJ's, assemble and prepare for world domination!
PericIes says2015-09-07T05:07:14.4163844Z
Meh, I'm too lazy for world domination at the moment. Until then I'll settle for kicking your ass at Risk.
Huntress says2015-09-07T13:08:11.2459866Z
@TBR If you can pick and chose your protected groups, then so can I. And if you can consider me intolerant for not supporting all of yours, then I'll consider you intolerant for not supporting all of mine.
Huntress says2015-09-07T13:17:45.6059134Z
My older brother is an INTJ who would join you, 58539672. Haha

This is something he should know as it is important for a president to be up to date in current affairs and ultimately both groups have similar ideologies and are enemies to the world. What trump has in his favour is the fact he is a very successful businessman who has clearly demonstrated an ability to succeed in most things he does. He may be the man America needs to deal with its huge (and still growing) national debt.
58539672 says2015-09-07T15:36:38.5206895Z
Ultimately, things like this don't really matter that much. Every election season we have a supposed "scandal" like this one, but they rarely have an effect on the race its self. During his original run for president, Obama said that he had visited and campaigned in all 57 states.
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-09-10T21:18:42.5724583Z
Read my vote and comment guys. It's under "I supported him, and this doesn't change anything."
triangle.128k says2015-09-10T21:41:23.1842438Z
@58539672 57 states, what??
TBR says2015-09-10T21:44:54.8816718Z
Obama said ~"I have been in all 57 states.". It was during a stop someplace, and the guy was.... Well, exhausted. No sane person thought he thought there were 57 states, but the FOX ran with it. It would have been a good laugh if they wouldn't take their bulls1it so seriously.
TBR says2015-09-10T21:48:52.2464587Z
There is a big difference between a gaffe, and a stupid comment. People talking that much are bound to say stupid things. Saying you don't know the fdifference between Hamas and Hezbollah is different. That is like me going to an IT interview saying I don't know what a protocol is. He needs to be taken seriously, and it is hard when he is blissful in his ignorance. He is arrogant about his ignorance. Bush was too. This is the modern GOP. "We don't need people who know stuff, we need men of ACTION!". I will take the guy who actually knows stuff any day of the week over the guy that just sounds.... Fun.
TBR says2015-09-10T21:54:06.9004757Z
Triangle.128k - For whatever reason this made me think of this bit from The West Wing. In context it is very good, in a quote, I hope it comes across.
TBR says2015-09-10T21:54:22.8125777Z
What does this remind you of? "I believe in hope, not fear." "I'm a leader, not a politician." "It's time for an American leader." "America's earned a change." "I before 'E' except after 'C'!" It's the fortune-cookie candidacy! These are important thinkers, and understanding them can be very useful and it's not ever going to happen at a four-hour seminar. When the President's got an embassy surrounded in Haiti, or a keyhole photograph of a heavy water reactor, or any of the fifty life-and-death matters that walk across his desk every day, I don't know if he's thinking about Immanuel Kant or not. I doubt it, but if he does, I am comforted at least in my certainty that he is doing his best to reach for all of it and not just the McNuggets. Is it possible we would be willing to require any less of the person sitting in that chair? The low road? I don't think it is.
MakeSensePeopleDont says2015-09-10T22:21:26.5021859Z
@TBR -- You said it yourself, the president gets 50+ items on his desk every day; these range from military, foreign, domestic, civil, criminal, bills, laws, rights, amendments, infrastructure, and SO much more. No man is able to know everything and everything, this is why the president and congress call in specialists and experts to speak on EVERYTHING instead of just making decisions blindly or throwing darts at a board of solutions. In fact, almost no (if not none of the) have any idea what the difference is. They will all go back and pay a researcher to go out and figure that out now though won't they...At least Trump will do his own research. || What we need to do in an election, especially a presidential election, is elect a candidate who is HIGHLY knowledgeable and confident in the section of our nation's existence and influence that is of the HIGHEST of importance to the nation at the present time. Our HIGHEST priority right now is without question our economy; the world can come together and fight wars, the world can come to peace agreements, the world can keep nation-states like Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons capabilities, the world can stop ISIS, all of these and MUCH more can be handle, stopped and reversed by the entire world when we ALL decide enough is enough; think about how long it took and how far the Nazis got before the Western World finally got fed up and started planning and enacting a defense and counter-strike strategy; the same goes for the Cold War, Gulf War, Desert Storm, Vietnam, WWI, the Crusades, etc. The one thing that the world CANNOT do though, is fix the U.S. economy and get our citizens back to work at a reasonable, functional and sustainable level as opposed to the current 10.5% unemployment and 19% underemployment rates we are suffering. So, what candidate do you know of that has experience in business, both domestically and internationally? Which candidate has a proven track record of successful business operations and business models both domestically and internationally? The answer is Trump. If you do NOT agree, then I challenge you to rebut that or offer another option.
