    The next four years will be, if anything, entertaining. All I need say is, "Joe did it again," and y'all will know what I'm taking about.

    In reply to a question to Joe Biden posed by Peter Doocy, Joe replied 'You're a one-horse pony."

    Will one of you more familiar with Joe's euphemisms please tell me how many horses ponies are supposed to have, since Joe's reply was clearly an insult? While you're at it, tell me what face a lying pony soldier should have. And, tell me why Joe is fixated on horses, because his commentary certainly compares to what comes from their backends. Is it that they're hairy?

    He mispoke. You know, as people do. He meant a "one-trick pony."

    Meanwhile Trump just pardoned 20 of his criminal lackeys. But yeah, let's focus on a slip of the tongue.

    Spoken like a true apologist. The problem, my friend, is that Hidin' Biden misspeaks more than he can offer a clear, concise sentence. His mind is missing spokes.

    As for presidential pardons, I suggest you look at the record of the placeholder, Oba'a

    so you accuse him of being an apologist, but then when you respond to his point you just deflect and say look at someone else. AKA being an apologist. 

    do you not see your hypocrisy, or do you just enjoy it?

    Wait, do you believe he misspoke or do you not believe he misspoke?

    And I suggest you look at what the current President is doing right now because, you know, that's what actually matters.

    Lets be fair. He's only human. People are going to misspeak from time to time. It's unavoidable. The issue would be whether or not the frequency of the incidents is significantly outside the range of normalcy... which might suggest a problem with mental acuity. You seem to be taking the position that it is - Yet, I do not see any data on this.

    This string is about Biden. Who deflected, again? Practicing your poor comprehension, again?

    Frequency is a gage? So, you county Trump lies. I'll count Biden tongue-ties. Fair enough? Or is yours a one-way street?

    None of you have yet told me how many horses ponies are supposed to have. TDS alive and well. You've all just proved it.

    You seem to be contradicting yourself, so I felt it was safest to just ask. The question stands.

    I mean, if he does it too often then it may suggest a problem with his mind. But if its not more often than the normal range then I don’t see a problem. So, yes, frequency would be an indrect gauge.

    So, you county Trump lies. I'll count Biden tongue-ties. Fair enough? Or is yours a one-way street?
    Meh. lying and missoeaking are not the same thing. They should be in different categories. Apples and oranges. But yes, count both if your intention is to compare the two, but that much is moot now since the election is done.

    I'm not sure what missoeaking  is. Is it something you need Depends
    for or are you just lying?

    Donald Trump's 2019 hurricane plan:

    "I got it. I got it. Why don't we nuke them?  They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they're moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can't we do that?"

    Donald Trump's 2019 Fourth of July address:

    "In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington, commander in chief. Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory. And when dawn came, their star-spangled banner waved defiant"

    (The Battle of Baltimore was in 1814)

    The Commander in Chief thinks the planes he commands are actually invisible to the eye:

    "the F-35 fighter jet, which is, you know, almost like an invisible fighter. I was asking the Air Force guys, I said, how good is this plane? They said, well, sir, you can't see it. I said, yeah, but in a fight — you know, a fight — like I watch in the movies — they fight, they're fighting. How good is this? They say, well, it wins every time because the enemy cannot see it. Even if it's right next to it, it can't see it. I said, that helps. That's a good thing"

    Donald Trump pandemic action plan:

    "So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it's ultraviolet or just a very powerful light — and I think you said that hasn't been checked because of the testing, and then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you're going to test that, too.  I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning?  As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that."
