Well have fun - its really hot and the mechanics are now having a fist fight over the bottle of water.

I'm in the other vehicle and just turned up the air conditioner, and my favorite song is playing.

Hey these seats are nice...

If your point is as simplistic as "One car is functioning and moving forward, the other is not and people are arguing over it", then sure, you pick the functioning car.

You do realize that your point doesn't go any further than that, right?

Today's philosophical question:

If Trump lies and there are no Democrats around to hear it, is it really a lie?

Discuss.

I'm sure the reasoning is black and white.

Sure, but the car you’re in will explode after traveling 5 miles. Still excited about being in it?

Got to rile up the racists/fringe vote for 2018 and 2020. If they're not excited enough, they won't get out and vote. And Trump needs the racists/fringe vote, combined with the complicit mainstream Republican vote, in order to win elections. Without that extra 'couple percent', the GOP doesn't stand a chance.

With quotes like this you may be right:

I was kind of waiting for him to say something and for some reason, he didn’t say anything.

Maybe Eminem would totally obliterate Trump and that is the reason why Trump doesn't want to call him out.

I'm just waiting for Trump to claim that "African-American unemployment levels haven't been this low since we had 0% unemployment during slavery".

re: Official Trump Presidency Thread Part 2: Hope Floats

Well, then there you go. I think you completely misunderstand what "calling someone out" means.

Eminem "Like Home"

Spoiler:

"This man just praised a statue of General Lee
'Cause he generally hates the black people, degrades hispanics
Take it back to the Shady national convention
Wish I woulda spit on it before I went to shake his hand
At the event or maybe had the wherewithal
To know that he was gonna try to tear apart
Our sacred land we cherish and stand for
So, hands in the air, let's hear it for
The start of a brand new America
Without him and be proud of where we're from
And here's to where we all"

I meant it as an introduction.

I don't think Trump is his friend anymore.

So the biggest loser in the Trump vs Jay-Z is Eminem?

The biggest loser is whoever gives a damn about “Trump vs. Jay-Z”.

All one needs to do is look at the unemployment charts over the last decade to see where the policy responsibility lies.

Also, isn’t this the same guy who attacked the legitimacy of unemployment rates while Obama was in office?

Nope, looks at speedometer mileage (takes a sip of a cool beverage) you are confused. I'm not in a Telsa

Turns up radio, just love this massage setting on these seats....

So, what are your thoughts on transforming the car from the bottom to the car on the top?

Y’know, since this analogy is so simple.

And, I might add that being over 70, it makes him seem a bit desperate to be perceived as hip.”

Well now look where we are.

I wouldn't consider Jay Z "some fleeting pop star".
