In context, with Trump denying the DNC hack was Russia trying to help Trump out, yes, this one can be seen as a very obvious joke. Just because he frequently makes horrific statements doesn't mean he doesn't occasionally also make jokes.

I don't think he's ever claimed that the wall comment was a joke. I don't think he ever will.

He was making a f---ing joke. He has brushed off the notion that Russia was doing the hacking in the first place. He made the comment at a press conference intending to ridicule the concept, not via a semi-secret text message to Vladimir Putin.

I'm no Trumpist, I mean, I'm going to vote for Hillary Clinton in November and you have NO IDEA how little I want to do that, but I'm in Florida, so my vote may make a difference between Trump or Clinton, and Trump really is THAT BAD. But, in this one instance, the collective left and political establishment has lost their minds, and apparently their sense of humor.

University thing? You mean Trump University where he defrauded people to the tune of tens of millions of dollars? The University where employees were told to extract as much money as possible from people via high pressure sales tactics?

That's the University you're talking about, correct? The one run by the shyster.

Drumpf has run most of his campaign by going from one conspiracy to another. He's convinced that there is something astronomically nefarious in those missing emails, and he knows from all the people shouting for Hillary's lynching at the GOP convention that this is a really popular conspiracy with this supporters. The complete and total absence of factual support for this conspiracy is of no consequence to him.

Unless you actually provide some evidence to support your conspiracy, this is my final reply to you in this JE discussion.

I will point out that I have never accused you of trolling in this JE. I gave you the benefit of the doubt - repeatedly - that perhaps you actually had some evidence to support your conspiracy. I even gave you repeated opportunities to choose other angles from which to attack Hillary, and you passed on those as well. You claimed that the wikileaks dump would support your conspiracy, yet there is absolutely no reason to believe that as the dump has already been parsed through by various organizations of all different political stripes from all over the world and none of them have found any such evidence.

As I've said before, Hillary is no saint. I'm not a big fan of hers and see plenty wrong with her. Why you insist on propagating fact-free conspiracies is the big question here when there is so much supported fodder you could use instead.

Nobody can save KMart or Sears.

You're right on KMart, it is a dead duck. I disagree on Sears, though. Sears could be saved by a competent CEO with knowledge of how retail works. Instead they have a Randian maniac who cannot be bothered to even show up in person to board meetings (preferring instead to yell at the board members over a videoconference connection). There are plenty of worthwhile assets belonging to Sears; if a competent person was in charge the company could be made relevant again. Instead it is circling the drain at a higher rate than before.

$4.3M seems like a deal if he was able to keep it open another year

He has utterly trashed the company, he started on autopilot and now he is in accelerated decay. He gets the pay because he can demand it as he owns more of the company than does the board and they can't refuse anything he wants to do - they can't even fire him. It is still open in spite of what he has done, not because of it. I don't know if you are been in a Sears in the past few years but he has pretty much turned the stores into Lord of the Flies between the very few employees that are around. It's not a pleasant experience to for customers to see and its even worse for the employees to experience.

At this point I'm pretty sure we've seen the last of MH42 and his conspiracy. He expected since he was spouting it off in this site - which some time ago became a conservative echo chamber - that nobody would challenge him on it. He has had plenty of opportunity to try to back it up (even though we all know he cannot) with facts. He won't come back to this thread as he knows it will be put right back in his face again.

Which is a shame. MH42 didn't used to operate like this.
