I didn't ask if you were outraged by his existence my guy, I asked what your opinions on his political beliefs and overall personality are, if you don't want to answer the question then just say, it'd be a lot easier than just answering a different one and would save everyone timeI'm just not outraged by him existing.
We will have to agree to disagree on the idea of my supposed 'defence mechanisms' but I think you were correct to change the wording from 'debate' to 'conversation'. If only because we haven't actually been debating. It's just a matter of being correct, something you are usually a stickler for.
It's honestly not a unique view. You can count the amount of posters here who wilfully engage in Trump discussions on maybe two hands. I think it would be logical to assume that the other posters don't engage in the debate simply because they don't really care and have other priorities in life. Now granted, I do engage sometimes on these matters but it is primarily to troll Haggis, who bites with impressive frequency.
I don't think we should be hard on Donnie. He applied for a job for a laugh, not expecting to get it, and he got it. So he has done what anyone else would do in that situation and tried to wing it best he could without being found out. I honestly see his position as being more symbolic than anything else anyway.
You're usually more clinical than this, TFG.
The line between a conversation and debate is a very thin one and really not that important, I perhaps gave you too much credit in thinking you would reply with your reasoning, I would disagree and that would be the debate. Let's not forget you replied to my critiscms of Ben with reference to his books sales statistics and his subscriber count...that seems like a counter argument to me, a monumentally stupid and irrelevant one, but a counter none the less.
Not engaging in discussion regarding Trump does not equate to being indifferent to him as a politician and person, though I think you already know that. We've had plenty of political debates on here before, I've seen you actively participating in Trump threads and making very developed arguments on people like Ben Shapiro, so I don't think asking you to elaborate on a potential political opinion is too much to ask for.
Tbf this is my own fault and I should have known that asking you a question like this was a huge leap of faith so never mind
