Seriously, all snark aside, is there any doubt he's a bully? I mean...c'mon...
Thanks Winst. I'll take a couple of days off from harassing you...I should mention that I do appreciate the 'Raptor. It's my one-stop shop for loony SJW nonsense.
Thanks, DJ...And Aa:Well, I'm actually kind of thinking now that my inclination is not really to deny that Trump is a bully...if that means: has a character that would incline him to bully if the opportunity presented itself.My inclination is really to think that the individual acts that people are pointing to are not actual acts of bullying. They're acts of being an asshole, or of incitement to violence or whatever... But they're just not literally and unequivocally *bullying.* I mean...to cut to the chase: the objection that he's bullying is childish and cowardly. Who's he bullying? Elizabeth Warren? She fights in his weight class. She's got nothing to fear from him. She's a big girl and is fully capable of giving as good as she gets. He's being an asshole to her...but to try to say that it's *bullying*...it's just *wimpy.*
Case in point:http://talkingpointsmemo.com/edblog/low-dollar-same-griftThe indented section a few paragraphs in. This strikes me as bullying, and being an asshole.
Hm. Well those seem more like bullying tactics to me... Not to be overly attached to my own previously-stated positions... but.... I guess I still have some tendency to want to say things like: that's just fucking *fraud* or something... I think I see the weakness in such responses... I'm just saying that I'm still feeling the tug of my "HE'S NOT A BULLY YOU MORONS!!!111" position...
