Parliment and Trump

I watched CSpan's coverage of Parliment discussing banning Trump from Great Britian. It was fascinating and depressing to watch.

Re: Parliment and Trump

  • Does it look like that would actually happen?  Because that would be amazing. 
  • I think they voted no on banning him. Do you know where we could watch the footage @smerka.
  • It was on CSpan yesterday afternoon
  • I saw a little of it.  I heard a lot of British people were quite upset about it and I get where they are coming from.  They live in a free society with freedom of speech, but it still makes me selfishly happy.
  • As much as I dislike Trump, I will be very disappointed with Parliament if they voted to not allow him to enter the country.  I always think of England as having a similar "Bill of Rights" attitude with similar freedoms that we do.  And, as alienating as he is with his "hate speech" (their reason for considering banning), freedom of speech is a fundamental human right.

    And oh...oh...oh...referencing back to the "natural born citizen" post and Trump badmouthing Cruz for being born in Canada.  Although, Trump was born in the U.S., his mother was apparently born in Scotland (rolling eyes)!!!!  I mean, geez Trump, at least both of Cruz's parents were Americans.

    I'm a little kidding.  I could personally care less what country a presidential candidate's parent(s) were born in because it really doesn't matter.  I just find it hilarious and ironic because of the comments he made about Cruz.

    Can we also talk about Trump constantly slamming Bill Clinton for being a moral-less cheater, when he has been divorced 3 times and had his own affair with Marla Maples? I don't understand why no one has brought that up yet.

    I don't know why no has brought any of his many skeletons.  WTF are they waiting for?

    Actually, Cruz's father is Cuban born.

    I don't really think he has much to hide and I think he intimidates people and gets away with a lot more than a normal politician would.  I'm pretty much convinced he will be the GOP nom.

    I don't know what they are talking about saying he is a hater. I think the people raping and attacking women are haters. Do they not see all the rapes going on in Sweden, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and in their own country? This can be coming here soon. He wants a TEMPORARY ban because the truth is these people cannot be vetted. If a large influx come here they are not going to assimilate.Trump may be a blowhard at times but he really does care. I have a love/hate for him. lol

    Seriously, though where are the feminists regarding this issue?

    Thanks for the correction...though now it takes sting out of my Trump snark, lol.

    Seriously though...on a totally unrelated note to the majority of this post...what an awesome country we live in that it can just be so "par for the course" for citizens with immigrant parent(s) to become real estate tycoons, senators...and even POTUS candidates.  Though, granted, Trump hardly came from humble beginnings.  Still, its such a land of opportunity.
