Trump is basically a "transformer toy", you can give it any flavor you please.

Something about this whole Trump th8by does not make sense. Lately he seems to be saying things that are more and more outlandish. He just said that should abortion become illegal, women who have abortions should be punished. Then after the chit hit the fan he walked it back.

That comment won't sit well with a majority of women I'm sure.

I'm really starting to wonder if he is not trying to sink his campaign. I can imagine he would be comfortable relinquishing control of his empire to some third party while he is in office.

Txjake already offered one, which makes your comment practically obsolete.

I am starting to wonder if you and/or some more people have an actual obsession with Trump.

Not really. His was a stretch to say the least. Give us another one.

Perhaps he should have said that then.

Trying to figure out what "is" means was BS then just as trying to figure out what "I alone" means.

Not even a stretch. What Trump said is not open for interpretation. His statement was specific and precise. He said only he could fix it. Full stop. If others want to spin it and walk it back more power to them but what he said is quite clear.

Nope. It's the most viable take that one can have on that 4-worded tweet.

You guys are making stuff up and expect others to buy into your nonsense.

He never used the word "fix". In so far, you are interpreting. To solve and to fix are not identical in meaning.

It is obvious, that in your singular mindset, the stated words cannot have any other meaning than the one you determine.

For somebody else it can have a distinctly different meaning. Apparently you are not willing to accept this fact.

Give him a break. It takes a long time to come up with a million different meanings. He's been typing all day and he's only at number 347,689. He'll post them all when he gets done.

I am surprised you guys are still stuck on that one.
Shouldn't you all be out there looking for new stuff to pin on your favorite punching bag.
From a psychological point of view, one can only wonder: you guys have nothing else to do?
