      Trump’s wife is a 10, 98% of the male population can only fantasize about that quality – including the character hiding behind the Drumpf twitter account.

      I think this is the subconscious drive behind the #Never Trump crowd ‘s bitterness and vitriol, the constant daily reminder that the Arch Misogynist pulls super hot babes.

              No Gezza you made disparaging remarks about Trump’s demonstrable sexual prowess, so please snap a pic of the “hot catch” you’ve got Big Boy, just remember that landscape aspect, aye.

              God school holidays are a pain sometimes. Why haven’t you got a girlfriend or any mates to keep you busy?

              Classic case of psychological projection going on there.

        You might like em with that IQ level buddy, but I like women who can write their own speeches, not use Michelle’s.

          Michelle didn’t write her own speech, Sarah Hurwitz and her team of speech writers did.

          “Trump’s wife is a 10

          Of course In your dating life the 1 to 10 grading refers to TONS.

            Don’t start whining at me, I’m not your bloody school counsellor. 😠

              Of course you aren’t, that career track must be at least a whole standard deviation above your IQ.

              What you are is a beta male triggered into angry sexualised posting by a painful reminder of an alpha male’s superior sexual track record.

              No lad, I’m a very happy chappy & you’ve obviously just hit puberty by the look of what you’ve been posting. I’m gonna have to start ignoring you now, sorry. I don’t want the embarrassment of having adults know I’ve been reading your dribble.

              “I don’t want the embarrassment of having adults know I’ve been reading your dribble.”

              Seriously? After your angry posting about sex dolls and plastic titties, lol.
              Yet another illustrative example of Trump haters lack of self awareness.

              All I pointed out in response to the OP is that Trump gets the hot babes, where as his haters are unsurprisingly triggered by that.

        I like women who can read their own speechwriter’s speeches, not Michelle’s.

          Who are you kidding Gezza, you’ve never pulled a hot babe, and now you are trying to convince us that you have never wanted one anyway. Sour grapes much?

            If your mum finds out what you’re saying on the web, you’ll be losing internet privileges, smarty-pants.

      “Don’t be the guy who plays golf 100 times a year and then tells his wife he’s been too busy to buy her a birthday present.”

      Actually this is exactly why men like Trump get the hot babes.

  2. A real problem in modern journalism:

    Online vitriol and attacks are attacks on free speech, more so when it drives experienced journalists away from the job.

      “Online vitriol and attacks are attacks on free speech”

      I disagree. What defines “online vitriol” anyway? From my experience, just questioning someone’s political assertions is more often than not treated as an “attack”.

      Most people take political disagreement extremely personally and feel they have been personally attacked.

      Reading the article, this guy is just burnout after nearly 2 decades and needed a career change.

      Which is a very smart move, “journalism” is not longer a respectful occupation.

      Journalists have become a priest class abusing their positions. Eg they unilaterally decide to start using te reo way ahead of what is used in the community.

    • cryptoWarrior

      Hmmm, that is problematic, you do realise that you have posted an anti Globalist Alt-right meme, and it could be construed as EXTREMELY anti-Semitic.

      And as you already tick all the “male pale and stale” boxes, you are already on thin ice.

    Apparently the govt taking over homes that were already being built and sticking a ‘Kiwibuild’ sign on them somehow increases the housing stock over-and-above existing developments?
