    Yes that would make sense. Watch him that's not what he does

    Habit? A lack of preparation for somebody actually answering something that he's asked?
    Note that you didn't actually answer my question, rather ironically.

    What part of it do you think that he failed to address?

    The part that led to the question being repeated.

    Why do you keep asking the same question?

    I'm not, unlike Neil. I'm pointing out that you're failing to answer it, which isn't what he was doing.

    This time. You still haven't answered the question, but we both know that you won't, so let's leave it.

    Funny how the dogwhistling boneheads who have spent the past two years going on and on and on and on and on about Diane Abbott flubbing her sums in an interview have been very, very quiet about Jess Phillips doing the exact same thing when she claimed to have knocked on 25,000 doors in the past two weeks

    I wonder what possible reason could there be for the white, middle class Jess Phillips being given fairer treatment than the black, working class Diane Abbott?

    Trump always looking to out-Trump himself has done pretty well in recent days. All very well when it just makes him look stupid, but now lives are being lost. OK, not sure how much of the US withdrawal from Syria was his personal idea, but he certainly backed it. And now guess what happens? The Turks start ethnic cleansing the Kurds - to nobody's surprise. Not only that, apparently the Kurds are holding lots of IS prisoners that might just get away. It was of course suggested prior to Turkish involvement in the war against IS that their endgame was nothing to do with defeat of IS, but defeat of the Kurds. Turkey is our NATO ally by the way.

    What will probably get more headlines, because it sounds so stupid, is that Trump decided to mention that the Kurds didn't help us in WW2, and particularly with Normandy (D-Day). The "thought" process behind this statement is utterly bizarre. Of course Turkey was neutral during the war so didn't do much to help either.

    He's saying that he won't help as the Kurds didn't help the US in WWII

    Very well, the US didn't help Britain in the 100 Years War, so stick your chlorinated chicken where the sun doesn't shine Donald

    Yep, that's Trump attacking Fox News for being biased against him. Fox. <doh>
    Why? Because they had a poll about impeachment and found that the majority of Americans want it to happen and for him to be removed.

    Can we be sure he's not attacking Fox News for not building airstrips during the Spanish-American War?

    The episodes take the piss out of censorship in China and the recent kowtowing to their government by western media companies.
    The result? Band in China gets South Park banned in China! <laugh>
