Donald Trump still not announced as some massive in-joke


The people or the phone?


Yes :wink:







It will be interesting to see his response to the awful events in Las Vegas.


More guns!


I used to be shocked by the local TV advertising in Las Vegas each time I visited.
Guns! Guns! Guns! Get down to Henderson GunMart for all your hunting & defense needs.
They were obsessed.

And these latest events taking place at a C & W festival. No doubt it’ll encourage many of them to carry a semi automatic next time.


I do hope the gunman’s name is Jed Clampert or summat, rather than Yousuf Ahmed (other Ayrab sounding names are available).


Police confirmed the attacker - described as a “lone wolf” - was a local resident who has been shot and killed by officers.


Meanwhile Trump has dedicated the trophy at the Presidents Cup golf tournament yesterday to the victims of the recent hurricanes that have struck the U.S. Puerto Ricans may have no shelter, power or food/clean water but they have got the benefit of having a golf trophy dedicated to them. Not receiving a trophy, just the dedication of one.


Lone wolf = white person

Part of a terrist cell =brown person


64 year old called Stephen Paddock (allegedly)

He’d have been labelled a terrorist if he’d been a muslim. He won’t be now.


But who will Trump blame?

  1. Muslims?

  2. North Korea?

  3. Democrats?

  4. Nevada’s total lack of any meaningful gun control?


Fifty dead, two hundred injured, FFS. Trump will open his gob soon and say something inappropriate.


Americans are:
6 times more likely to die from a shark attack (one of the rarest forms of death on Earth)
29 times more likely to die from a regional asteroid strike
260 times more likely to be struck and killed by lightning
4,700 times more likely to die in an airplane or spaceship accident
129,000 times more likely to die in a gun assault
407,000 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle incident
6.9 million times more likely to die from cancer or heart disease

Than to be killed by an Islamic terrorist within the USA… Trump will blame the sharks.





No, no, no. Those numbers compare the risk of being killed by a refugee terrorist admitted to the USA - the article is discussing the impact of the travel ban which blocks, among others, some refugees. The Islamic terrorists who have killed thousands of Americans within the USA over the years weren’t refugees. On a broader point, stats relating to small numbers of events are very, very difficult to interpret sensibly in any case. Sorry.
