#1 Dam right it happened snowflake. Politics is now a street fight and a war zone which started with the Dims Obama characterizing the selection of Sarah Palin as his opponent's running mate as puting lipstick on a pig.

And continued with the Dims gleefully shoving sch!tt down our throats every chance they could. That is why we hired The Don.

The Dim resistance are going to resist, lie, cheat and steal and try to destroy every thing we do and if your puny little ears can't handle the well deserved trash talk the Dims are finally, deservedly getting in this street fight against their antifa brown shirts, and thier pron stars, and thier Mad Maxines followers getting in your face at the restuarant or press conference then go melt somewhere else!

#3 Trump uses derisive accurate nickname for Rep. Adam Schiff in tweet

Fixed it for ya - your welcome.

Two comments - this is a calculated lob into the other bunker; and...

I fear a large percentage of the Suburban Womens vote just said "Buh, bye.”

I will do my best not to insult you, but are you fucking serious with this comment? Have you taken into consideration how many times Trump has done this sort of thing already via Twitter as well as the percentage of people that will remember this one particular tweet eleven months from now? Your political analysis sucks big hairy donkey balls, so just stop before embarrassing yourself any further.

#4 My Missus, upon reading this did say "Buh-bye" to Mr. Trump. She has had enough. Won't vote Dem, but will withhold from PDJT.

This "calculated lob" was not smart.

#5 It's not a high school popularity contest. It's war. The other side demands you surrender. There is no 'middle' way. The world she lives in will indeed be fundamentally altered.

#6 upon reading this did say "Buh-bye"

Don't doubt it. Do doubt it's a large number of people.

Bill Kristol might beg to differ...

#7 Mrs. Uluque will NOT like this and I think many of her friends and relatives will not like it either. You can fight hard without resorting to profanity. You can always find a better, more effective way to express yourself if you think first before you resort to dirty words.

Yes, I believe Trump made a mistake here. I think Schifferbrains is a much better term for the honorable gentleman from California.

#8 If THIS is what causes you to abandon President Trump, you never actually supported him in the first place. Seriously, you didn't. How many times and how many vulgarities have we heard from the Left? How many insults and out-right lies?

But no, calling someone a bad word through wordplay on their names is the final straw! We've tried the civility angle, Bush 43 was that. I for one remember the depictions of him as a literal monkey. How soon we forget.

So I repeat, if this causes you to stop supporting, you never supported in the first place. You may have Hated Hillary more(easy to do), but you didn't support.

#9 This is what CEOs are like. I know most people never get close enough to senior managers to know them and what they are like; but Trump is no different in his style and mannerisms than a lot of senior managers I met in my career.

#10 Reread #8 and #5. It will get worse before it gets better. Civility left the building long ago.

#11 We didn't hire Trump for eloquence. We hired him because he fights at every level necessary for us. Sometimes that includes "not so nice" words. Folks that are "triggered" by this need to grow a pair - both men and women included.

#12 Tom. This is also what many of the most successful Generals during war time are like. If the enemy requires submission or surrender, you have no choice but to use every phsycological weapon you have.

But some so called men are too p'ssy whipped to be called a warrior.

#13 Concur with SR-71. My takeaway: do not bend to the mentality of the herd

#14 Civility is when someone calls you a Racist™ and you are supposed to smile and take the hit. Anecdotally, an ex-friend looked me in the eye and said: "The only reason I can think of not voting for Obama is racism!"

#15 Well, that escalated quickly.

Those of us who have worked intimately with elections recognize that they are increasingly won or lost at the fringes. Notable exceptions include the charismatic charlatan (Barack Obama) and the demonstrably incompetant (Bruce Rauner). Many on the fringes look at seemingly small things to influence their vote. And the "Schitt"-thing is a small thing mirrored. Worse, this scatalogical twist of a name demonstrates conclusively that he, Schiff, is exciting Trump synapses, this to his, Schiffs, delight.

I am a Trump supporter, but have no problem voicing my concern when he appears to "step in it." Yes, I've been in the company of corporate swells who use idiom and adjective for emphasis, but they (at least should) know better than to make such utterances in a press release, at a shareholders meeting or a company-sponsored "mixer." It's a bad look.

In closing, I still support Mr. Trump, but he has made my job of keeping some in the fold harder.

To the ad hominem attack of calling me a "snowflake," I'd like to see you walk a mile in my shoes, but doubt you'd make it to the mailbox.

#16 I don't think anyone is calling you a snowflake, Anomalous.

We're pointing out that, should someone not support President Trump because of this single tweet, letting everything else pass from the other side, that they never truly supported the President. It's pointing out a lack of ability to draw moral equivalencies that lead to the exposure of ones inner beliefs.

I think people here know what snowflakes are. Supporting yet still disagreeing with something the President did/said is not it. Lord knows I disagreed with GWB every 3-6 months for something.

#17 Thanks Charles, but please see comment #1, fourth word ^ context. And I doubt I'll be getting a Christmas Card from Raj.

"Schitt" will not sway the core, but, again, the goodwill of the fringes are what are needed to successfully cross the finish line in first place. And I'm certain this tweet will be back in, say, 18 months-or-so as "additional proof positive" that Mr. Trump is unbalanced / crude / unsuitable, etc. Should it be seen as such? No. Will it? Ask a few "undecideds" what they think of it.

Btw, the .jpg was snark.

#18 Let me tell you something Anonymous Sources. You are a pompous little snot for your bs about how you claim you are so much better than everyone else. That proves to the worĺd that you are a nobody except in your snowflake little mind. When Trump made you pee'd all over yourself and crap in your diapper so easily.
