Trump will ban TikTok in the US.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/world-us-canada-53619287

If he does this alone he's earned another 4 years.

Yes, Tik Tok is the major problem facing the US and will balance out the rest of his presidency and make another four years worth it.

Big enough for India, a country of 1.4billion, to ban it, with Japan and Australia considering the same. But because Trump said it then it must be bad, right?
India is ruled by a fascist party

It's gas the way the Trumpbots complain about so called "cancel culture" and proclaim themselves "freeze peach" warriors, yet they are all about banning things and clamping down on free speech

The hypocrisy of it all, then again Trump and Trumpbots are unshameable

You need unshameability when your whole schtick is an entirely self conscious fraud

I didnít say anything about what Trump said.

I commented on your opinion that his banning of Tik Tok would, on itís own, make Trump and his outrageous, incompetent, bigoted, damaging, freakshow of a presidency worth inflicting on the world for another term.

So you agree Tiktok is a major problem. So trump is right to take action? Good stuff.

Its A problem. One of many when it comes to privacy concerns on the internet in general and, specifically, China.

That said, I seriously doubt its one Trump would have given a second thought to were it not for the media reports about a bunch of kids trying to use it against him with his Tulsa rally.

It is certainly not an issue which should feature among arguments for a Trump second term.

There are two possibilities.

1 - Trump diligently read his briefings and listened to his highly qualified technical advisers about the security risks posed by TikTok and decided to ban it after a careful and nuanced discussion about the advantages, disadvantages, and implications of such a move.
2 - Trump saw Sarah Cooper's latest lip-sync parody of him, took it personally, and decided to ban TikTok.

Which do you think is more likely?

the irony is Sarah cooper will be out of work if trump is out of office and the grey clad rioters in your other post are the Democrat party .

You conveniently forget that Reagan converted the lads in the grey uniforms to the Republican Party with racist dog whistles...

Those confederates are the ideological ancestors/counterparts of much of today's conservative movement.

That they switched parties after the mid-60s doesn't change that.

Ah, the old "Democrats used to be the racist party, therefore my conscience is clear today" defense. If Abe Lincoln tried to run for the GOP nomination today he'd be laughed off the stage and denounced on Fox News as an "SJW," and well you know it.

As for Sarah Cooper, she's an author and standup comedian. She's gonna have plenty of work when the Trump nightmare is over.

Never ceases to amaze me.

The continually throw out the Democrat's history vis a vis the south and the civil war as some kind of Q.E.D. as if the past fifty years never happened.

Then at the same time they turn around and go apeshit about the confederate momuments, keeping the names of confederate generals on military bases, all while they fly the confederate battle flag at Trump rallies and until very recently at official state venues in certain places and on many of their properties and vehicles. And of course deny that racism is a real problem and try to falsely claim that white christian males are in fact the "real" victims.

Something doesn't quite compute.

Whether she disappears or not, she is doing sterling work right now.

That it gets under his self-obsessed, over-sensitive, insecure hyper-thin skin is brilliant!

He won't like this

Quote
Breaking via NYT: The Manhattan district attorney's office has suggested that it has been investigating Trump and his company for possible bank and insurance fraud, a significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.

NEW YORK (AP) ó New York prosecutor seeking Trump's tax returns cites reports of 'protracted criminal conduct' at the Trump Organization.

No surprise there. This administration is one big criminal enterprise. Trump could be the first US president to actually get locked up. Here's hoping.

I'll be happy enough with him just getting the boot from the electorate. He himself may be corrupt as f**k, but his political movement is way bigger than just Trump the man. A massive hiding might cause the GOP to rethink things as well, but I'll not hold my breath. They were there after 2012 before doubling down on ignorance and bigotry four years later.
