I bully retards on here every day, so I'm not about to denounce that.

I didn't expect a serious response. You didn't let me down. At least you, unlike Goofle, are willing to call a spade, a spade.

It is a serious response. Politicians are terrible role models and people who think otherwise don't deserve good role models.

No, we are taught from grade school to look up to and respect the POTUS. Any person in that chair should try to set a good example, at least on the surface.

I'm mostly taking about young kids here who don't know any better.

Can we also agree on the definition of a role model: A role model is a person whose behavior, or example, is or can be emulated by others, especially by younger people.

Are we putting 2 and 2 together yet? Is the picture coming into focus?

Can we agree that there is a difference between empowerment and being influential? Causing people to act out is not empowerment. He's not passing laws that enable them, they aren't being afforded any special benefits, they are not being given any more of a platform to speak then they previously had..

So again, with sincerity, can you explain to me what am I missing?

One of the definitions of empowerment is: The process of becoming stronger and more confident.

So if I'm a bully, and I see the POTUS getting away with being a bully, then it makes me more confident in being a bully.

DWV, this site only needs one Frownland.

So people who find and call out Trump's actions as deplorable don't exist in any kind of large numbers? So that's why he won.

Don't call me Frownland.. I know you're used to arguing with him, but you don't need to get all defensive. I wasn't using the term empowerment in that sense, I'm not aware of every definition of every word.

Now that we have an understanding on the usage I don't disagree with you, but I think it's a bit of an over reaction.

I'm truly sorry man. Will never do it again.

The people who never stop bitching about Trump empower people not to be like him. The math adding up now?
