EB goes after Clinton hard
I shrug
I go after Trump hard
EB goes bonkers and makes it personal lol



This is so true.

After months (years?) of posting pics of Hillary looking old and ugly, EB really can't handle people pointing out the fact that Donald paints his face orange.

Yea but he gets to make it up by being able to say "President Trump". And if he still isn't cheered up, he just needs to open the Huffington Post and laugh at the headlines from the sore losers.

You would think that's true, wouldn't you? But based on EB's posts at DT, it seems that that isn't the case. He got very defensive about Donald's orange face. And he constantly goes out of his way to praise Donald's "brilliance."

It's the "sore winners" thing. So many Trumpsters cannot handle criticism of their Orange god. They lash out when you point out what a dumb buffoon he is.

But I fear this is taking this thread off topic. There are plenty of fun active threads about the orange man over at DT...

You can't say that about "minorities" because "minorities" is a pretty big word. If you want to get more specific, you could say that about Blacks and that's not even debatable. But I don't see how you can make a blanket statement like that about other "minorities" in this country.

I can think of two "minorities" that probably vote mostly republican, although I'm just speaking off the top of my head. That would be Cubans and Vietnamese. The young ones may have been in this country for years but they all have relatives who have communism still fresh in their minds, it still hits home. I know many Vietnamese from Orange County, Ca., and the older ones went through hell to get here. They're lucky to have escaped with their lives.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

In the December 15, 2016 show, Bob said "Would it likely be easier for a wealthy Chinaman..." at around "32:45".

Just to state the obvious. I'm a Chinese American and I found it odd/uncomfortable to hear this term in a public radio show. Do you guys use this term in your daily conversation? If so, do you know the history behind it?



My wife is from Hong Kong... she doesn't even have official citizenship yet and I call her all sorts of offensive names that you wouldn't approve of! I never used Chinaman or Chinawoman. That doesn't seem very offensive. It seems pretty natural. Your from China. Your a man. Your a Chinaman. My father used to use a lot more words that people still find offensive. He fought in Vietnam so I am sure you know the words he called Asians. Don't worry... I got him back for you since I married an Asian Woman!! I use some of these words but more so in a joking manner... who cares? I've been called worse names myself.

I don't care what they say about the LGBT or Rainbow community! I am still going to call them all the offensive, derogatory names they have for that group :) !

The black vote is the closest to automatic among all major ethnicities, but not fully. Hillary got 88%, 5% less than Obama did in 2012. If she got 93% like Obama with all others constant, the electoral college might have been hers. Not bothering to do the math though.

This just further proves Bob right. You're only half minority so you vote dem about half the time ;)

Here's an interesting one. Muslims used to be among the most loyal Republican voters.

But the broad statement is still accurate. He didn't say, "every single subset of every single minority."
