"i dont trust the cloud, but use the cloud"
You're either being deliberately ignorant, or the point hasn't been made clear to you. I'll try to help.
With cloud-based password managers, your data is at risk. If they are hacked - and because they are online, they are vulnerable to attacks - your data is compromised unless it is always encrypted. In essence, you're trusting that they will never be hacked, and that if they are, they did best-practices to protect your data.
With Keepass, even if the cloud-storage you use is hacked, you know the data isn't accessible because it's strongly encrypted. Because you did it.
So yeah, the original comment makes perfect sense.
