I'm not so sure how much trust I would put in a third hand report.
But, regarding whether Trump thinks Republicans are stupid, I suspect that Trump thinks that he is the smartest person who ever existed, and so relative to him everyone is stupid.
You are talking about the megalomaniac Barack Hussein Obama. No one on earth can match the number of times Hussein referred to himself in all of his speeches and writings.

As an atheist, you cannot debate the morality of anything because from your point of view there is no good or bad or right or wrong, just things you like and things you don’t like.


Sorry but you are very misinformed about Atheism.
Being a atheist does not mean you don't know good from bad or right from wrong.
Being a atheist does not mean you live without a moral outlook.
What I do is live everyday being the best father and husband that I can be, I now have a wife of 18years that I have never even thought about being unfathfull to. I have two teenage kids who have never touched drugs/alcohol and both started college at 14 years old.
What I do is give to charity's every year both secular and non-secular. Volunteer my time reading at a children's hospital and in soup kitchens twice a month.

What I don't do is judge people based on there believes.
So if anyone has any problems with me because I choose not to believe in God, Jesus or Allah then screw'em

Let's go back over our little interchange:

<acknowledgeurma wrote>
...[the "..." indicates that something is left out] Snopes says Trump never said this, but then many (all?) Trump supporters will tell you Snopes can't be trusted because they belong to George Soros.

<karpenter wrote partial quote without "...">
Trump supporters will tell you Snopes can't be trusted because they belong to George Soros

<karpenter continued with>
Nope
I Said Snopes Is Not To Be Taken Seriously
Because Their Progressive Slant Is Un-Deniable
And It's Been That Way For More Than The Last Two Years

<acknowledgeurma asked (notice the question mark)>
So you take Snopes seriously when they confirm your point of view, but they're "Not To Be Taken Seriously" when they disagree wit your point of view?

<karpenter responds with>
Is That What I Just Said
Or Just What You Want To Hear

How Do You Read Highway Signs ??
They're Subject To What You Want Them To Say, Right ??

If Progs Generally Mis-Understand Terms And Concepts
The Way You Seem To, Deliberately Or Not
Then Progs Really Have No Business Running A Country

<acknowledgeurma comments on our interchange>
1. You dropped the "many (all?)" when you quoted me. I don't recall ever encountering a Trump supporter who trusted Snopes, that's why I asked "(all?)". But I allowed for the possibility with my "many".
2. You replied with, "Nope[,] I Said Snopes Is Not To Be Taken Seriously...". I don't recall saying you ever said anything. Why did you even respond to my post?
3. But assuming you felt I had somehow misquoted you, I don't understand why you said "Nope". I think most would say: a source of information that "Is Not To Be Taken Seriously", "can't be trusted".
4. I was slightly befuddled as to why you had even replied to my original comment. I assumed you were just another Trump supporter who disregarded any Snopes reports because you perceived a "Progressive Slant" you deem "Un-Deniable". So, I asked if you took Snopes seriously when they confirm your point of view.
5. Again, until now, I don't recall ever saying you ever said anything. And I was only slightly interested in hearing, whether you took Snopes seriously when they confirm your point of view.
6. How do I read highway signs? Are they subject to what I want them to say? Well, yes, I read them as though they were subject to what I want them to say - because: I want them to say information that will get me safely to my destination, and I trust the governments to provide that information with the highway signs.
7. (Based on your use of "You Seem To") It seems you think I "Generally Mis-Understand Terms And Concepts", either deliberately or not. What terms and concepts have I misunderstood?
8. I have no desire for "Running A Country", but I would like to be POTUS. It would be interesting.
9. Why did you begin all your words with a capital?

I think Barack Obama probably thinks Michelle Obama is the smarter of the two (if only because she doesn't seem to want to be POTUS).

From:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discernment

"Discernment is the ability to obtain sharp perceptions or to judge well (or the activity of so doing). In the case of judgment, discernment can be psychological or moral in nature. Within judgment, discernment involves going past the mere perception of something and making nuanced judgments about its properties or qualities. Considered as a virtue, a discerning individual is considered to possess wisdom, and be of good judgement; especially so with regard to subject matter often overlooked by others."

So, how does one gain discernment?

Wikipedia and Snopes...helluva combination.

I thought it interesting that the Wikipedia reference was headed with:
"This article does not cite any sources. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. "

Did you disagree with the Wikipedia quote?
Would you prefer:
https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/discernment
the quality of being able to grasp and comprehend what is obscure

I think I like it more, because it's simpler.

If you don't like Snopes, how determine whether to trust information?

Good point, why should we let bible thumpers tell us what is right or wrong?
