Let's be honest, Trump completely dominated tonight
Tbh with this comment he won the entire thing
He did a good job playing to his base but he didn't do anything for getting new voters from the middle. It's because he has a stupid troll breitbarter running his campaign now who doesn't know what he's doing.
>not that anon but OP
maybe because he actually seemed presidential? did you watch the same debate? Hillary is a wound up robot, every thing she says literally every single thing has been methodically scripted
Trump actually speaks what is seems to be on his mind for better or worse.
Also I don't particularly want to go to war with Russia. Hillary Clinton does
I saw the debate, yes, and I'm not a hillbot trying to troll the trumpbots, I would just like to know what made him go for Trump, based on said debate.
I would've asked the exact same, if he had said he chose Hillary after the debate.
.. a war with Russia is unlikely, btw, they have a shitty, old and archaic military and know better than to start a brawl with the USA and NATO.
it wouldn't be a war with just Russia. but Russia and its allies Syria, Iran and what would really scare me would be the Chinese siding with them
who knows though. No doubt that if Hillary gets elected it will still be the same old slow boring proxy wars
>btw, they have a shitty, old and archaic military
you don't really need a military when you have nukes. and rocket/missile shield wont protect you from 1000s of nukes. all it takes is a few to break though. and Russian military isn't shitty and archaic. they just don't parade their advanced stuff like Americans do to intimidate the world.
Trump needs to win ALL the Romney states, plus at least one major swing state (OH, PA, FL) PLUS flip other states to EVEN CONTEND. Which is why the GOP is having an emergency meeting today, deciding whether to still back Trump financially or go full down-ballot and abandon ship. And that's not even from the democratic slant...That's Paul Ryan and his crew.
Meanwhile, team Trump has doubled down within the GOP--"either you're with us or you're against us--and we're taking names"...so a burning, sinking ship with mutiny on-board is somehow going to prevail...in LESS THAN A MONTH?!!?! Good luck with that...every pundit has it Clinton; what is contended is how bad a beating the GOP will take overall because of Trump...
And don't forget Pence--who built his career on being a holy roller and didn't defend Trump, who in turn left Pence hanging on Syria...this shit is like WWE, except it's the GOP...what's next, Stone Cold for VP?
the Chinese are too smart for war, they know it would be a stalemate or a pyrrhic victory at best, Iran would launch it's only nuke, it would fail and drop in the ocean and then Tehran would be glassed and Syria... Syria hardly even exist, anymore.
and.. we'd have India and Pakistan on our side.
but yeah, you're right about the proxy wars and the perpetual "war on terror", Hillary would continue that. Trump wouldn't, he says, but he says shit all about how he plans to disengage.
>Trump actually speaks what is seems to be on his mind for better or worse.
tbh, this argument is kinda retarded.
Latest south park episode makes fun of that basically.
Garrison (besically he's trump) literally says that everyone should vote for hillary because he doesn't know what the fuck he's doing, and everyone continues to cheer him on "because say what you want, at least he doesn't sound like another politician".
Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't vote for him, just saying that the argument that he says what he wants isn't exactly how you should chose a president.
Did you just fucking say you don't need a military when you have nukes? What fucking world do you live in? What the fuck do you think a nuke does other than blow up some shit in a large radius? You can't nuke entire countries. . . and even if you did, what then? Radiation and fallout and of course there are still fucking people and you still have to live in the goddamn world you just made that much worse. Goddamn. . . I hate myself when I stoop to answering dumb fucks like you.
why does Israel's wall work so well at keeping out immigration? granted our wall would have to be a lot bigger
>cost of maintaining
you mean job creation? you aren't older than 18 are you?
I think I love you
... n-no homo
>Trump completely dominated
*mumble mumble* ISIS *mumble mumble* e-mail *mumble mumble* Bill Clinton *mumble mumble* Benghazi *mumble mumble* *SNIFFFFFFF*
Do you have a map? Look at the size of Israel. Now look at the size of the US. Would you like me to walk you through this further? Also we aren't at war with Mexico. . . fuck this site has gotten dumber. . . maybe its just gotten younger. I'm about done.
politics attracts sociopaths and psychopaths who want control over other people. i think you two are underestimating how crazy these people are. they would rather see the world burn than to lose.
Those two things are not the same. The Samson doctrine is an unofficial Israeli policy that states they'll drown the middle East in fire if they're at risk of losing a war. MAD is a system of deterrence. The Samson doctrine isn't because it's not an official policy and nobody in the Israeli government acknowledges it. It may not even exist.
>Do you have a map?
why should I need one.. I literally said in my last post that I understand that America is bigger than Israel and thus will require a much larger wall
also how does that have anything to do with war with Mexico? does Israel have millions of undocumented peoples from its neighboring regions within its country? no... it does not
also you had no reply to the fact that a wall would create jobs because you are a retard anyways
>maintaining a pointless wall is worth it because jobs
just because something creates jobs doesn't mean that it's worth it.
You could pay people to throw pebbles at a wall all day, and that would technically create jobs, but you wouldn't suggest doing that, would you?
Also the very reason why the wall wouldn't work is because it's so god damn fucking large.
Unless they intend to make it absurdly tall, climbing over it in some unmonitored area wouldn't be that hard.
Also apparently immigrants can literally just get a visa for a short duration and literally just fly over the border legally, and then just stay when the visa ends, because who's stopping them.
Trump obliterated Hilary, wonder how bad her ass hurts.
Careful not to fall for the media bait.
Sociopaths and psychopaths are the same thing. One is a clinical term and one is a Hollywood term.
I fully believe that the only reason Republicans exist is because Republicans exist. I mean that to say, in Russia, or China, or wherever. . there are warhawks and people who want to fight. Hence you have Americans who just want to fight to protect us from those who want to fight.
I'm not as clever or as sober as South Park . . . but it could be called "Having your cake, and eating it too"
I have 18 polls that all say Trump won by a landslide
>but you wouldn't suggest doing that, would you?
no because I don't want people to throw pebbles at a wall.. I want a very big wall that will deter people from coming in.. or at least being able to freely walk across.... NOTHING... into America
you really aren't good at this whole debating thing. you are just spouting random shit
is it really shilling if you are doing it honestly? then again you wouldn't know anything about honesty being a HRC supporter
The spin at CNN is fucking comical.
Why are people saying trump won/dominated tonight
He acted like a retarded toddler.
>Because we all know how accurate online polls are immediately after the debate
>i think you two are underestimating how crazy these people are
yes, they are, but down the chain of command in all administrations exists the option for sane people to take action, or deliberately choose not to comply or just obstruct.
is it not sort of a miracle, that only two nuclear bombs have been dropped since their invention? That The Bay of Pigs didn't become WWIII ?
or.. maybe, somewhere someone said "hey, let's turn these boats around and sail back to Mother Russia, so as not to end the fucking human race today".
>I want a very big wall that will deter people from coming in.. or at least being able to freely walk across.... NOTHING... into America
the point is that it won't deter shit. If someone wants to get over a fucking wall they will. Unless they monitor every fucking meter of that god damn wall, it won't do shit to stop illegal immigration.
So since the wall won't actually do shit, building it and maintaining it has basically the same value as having people throw pebbles at a fucking wall.
Is socio/psycho the choice between Trump and Hilary? Then the one who does the less is better :) maybe Hilary is sick maybe she does well to stress and not to attack people. Next presidential will be more interesting than evil/evil choice.
"Much larger' How much larger then Mr. internet expert? My google-fu says the border between the US and Mexico is almost 2000 miles. Compared to 400 for Israel.
Israel and Palestine have been in various degrees of war for years. Not relevant to US-Mexico relations in the slightest.
What is with Republicans and acting like creating temporary jobs is some kind of fix for the country? The wall gets built. . so we hire who . . . a bunch of Mexicans to build it? Lol have you seen construction in border state. . . yeah. . . they are all Mexican. Then once the wall is built. . . I guess it needs 2000 miles of patrolman to make sure no one walks up with a ladder. That will surely make money for the economy.
>the point is that it won't deter shit. If someone wants to get over a fucking wall they will.
>pic related is Israel's wall... maybe you can get over it with a fucking catapult.
Of course you could dig tunnels underneath it but that would be very time consuming
there are already tunnels underneath the very weak border that US shares in some places (not all) with Mexico. Those tunnels need to be rooted out.. most are known locations however and they will be closed.
so you can't think of something she did well? you are off to a great start here
Not gonna lie, former Trump voter here. This is fucking hilarious watching Trump crash and burn.. But in all seriousness we can't let this man get the nuclear codes!!!
>Raided polls just like the ones after the first debate that Trump tweeted are totally legit guis
>former Trump voter here
>Of course you could dig tunnels underneath it but that would be very time consuming
right, the people crossing the border won't be digging the tunnels, smugglers will. Sure it's time consuming, but hire a few mexicans to dig a tunnel in a few months, and you can charge other mexicans who want to cross the wall.
Point is, the wall will only make it harder to cross the border, it won't actually stop people from crossing it. But since the demand will still be there, people will figure out ways to do it.
It's similar to how the war on drugs doesn't actually do shit. US spends insane amounts of money to try and fight drug trafficking, but since there's a demand, there's always going to be a supply.
Are you claiming to be psychic now? I never stated who I was voting for.
Go ahead and answer 'no' for me so I can get total confirmation that you're actually a small child who thinks everyone who disagrees with Trump must support Hillary. I'm sure you'll get over it with enough facebook political memes.
Answered every question with
>Things are bad. Terrible. I'm going to make them great.
How will you do it?
>I'll tell you how. I'll make deals. Great deals. I make the best deals.
But what are you going to do?
>Make things great.
The Donald managed to sell to a Saudi degenerate instead of buying.
You bother to think about what you post? Or does this shit just come from the talking points supplied by media Matters?
>The Donald does business with the people he claims orchestrated 9/11
>You bother to think about what you post?
And the worst part about pulling away financially is that it is basically conceding the election. There isn't enough time to pull trump off of the ticket, trump will most likely bring a suit against the GOP for removing him, putting the ticket in litigation hell and frozen until after an election. Couple that with any state with a Democrat governor can blatantly tell the GOP no and they can't do anything about it.
people have been building walls for thousands of years. what makes you such a smarty pants for not wanting to have one?
you probably think we shouldn't have national sovereign borders either, should we? wouldn't it just be easier if we all had one currency, one God, one government etc??
that is the entire problem of going to war with russia
china will just wait till they start nuking each other and when one is losing enough he will start nuking the shit out of the other
and after they destroyed each other china is gone dance on the radioactive corpses of both superpowers
Fuck yes. When he said that shit I got a boner. He was so on point and commanding of the stage dispite the fact that literally nothing was in his favor. Motherfucker was born to be POTUS. MAGA!
I was neutral until tonight's debate.
Trump all the way.
Hilary's had her time, and hasn't done anything.
Trump also dominated the debate.
Plus, I'm tired of people forcing Hilary down your throat. It's annoying as fuck, and even the moderators were bias. Trump also isn't a pussy ass sjw.
now I'm pretty sure that you're just fucking with me, but still.
Walls were good thousands of years ago because they're good at stopping huge amounts of people crossing it at the same time (basically enemy armies). They aren't that great at stopping small amounts of people crossing them over a long period of time.
Also airplanes are a thing you know.
so you didn't actually attack the logic of my argument you just deflected and shitposted again?
the national debt has doubled in the last 8 years should I blame all of that on Obama as well?
you are like a fucking moron and I am not sure why I am wasting time talking to you.
I will reiterate again.. people have been building walls for thousands of years. what makes you believe you are smarter than all of those peoples/cultures etc?
>Also airplanes are a thing you know.
also radar is a thing you know.. and people don't typically fly over random countries they do not belong in and just chill the fuck out.
have you tried flying your own plane into China? or Russia? or North Korea? or Syria? probably wouldn't be as easy as you want to make it out to be
They can't remove him dumb shit. He's the elected nominee. Plus with early voting already underway in many states, it's far too late. If they wanted to back another candidate and have the Republicans in Washington vote for whoever that would be by writing in his name, that's one thing. But considering 80% of the Republican voters were all still Team Trump just hours before the debate, I'd guess that that number is somewhere around 95% now,after his utter annihilation of that cunt tonight. Plus,
Awww. It's okay babby
>asks for papers
>cannot produce papers
It's like you read my post.. but didn't actually read my post
so you don't care if they are zionist swine? just as long as they are zionist swine "with a brain"?
got it. cool.
fucking newfag all that happened was the sever connection dropped out
kys or lurk moar
best shot ever
>asks for papers
>cannot produce papers
if it was that simple, then a wall wouldn't be needed.
You just go to every illegal immigrant and ask for papers.
Besides, the wall is supposed to stop people from coming in, what I'm saying is that they can just fly over the wall.
Asking for their papers isn't a way to stop them coming in, it's a way to get them out once they're in. It has nothing to do with the wall.
In all fairness, if Trump wins it'll be good for music in general. Reagan era spawned N.W.A. and that's cool as fuck. Niggas rioting and Teabaggers protesting it always generates some cool tunes. So there's that.
tbh, I kinda like trump as a person more so than hillary, but I feel like trump really doesn't know what the fuck he's doing.
Sure, hillary might be a bitch, but at least she's been doing this shit for a long time, and won't fuck shit up that bad, while with trump I can't be so sure.
>You just go to every illegal immigrant and ask for papers.
If you know they're illegal then you don't need to ask for papers.
And if you can judge whether or not someone is illegal just by looking at them, you don't need to ask them anything.
Didn't exactly think this one through did you
If it were a I CAN SHOUT LOUDER AND LONGER THAN YOOOOOO contest then Trump was the winner. The man is a fucking tool and I hope you cunting yanks end up with this prick for 8 fucking years. You deserve him.
>that nigga never slaved under a hot sun a day in his life... when he eats shit for a living, instead of trump steaks... MAYBE i'll consider him representing me.
He's not the asshole they need... but he's the asshole they deserve.
Trump never gave a single fuck about anybody but Trump, but all of a sudden he's the most appealing voter to a bag of Cletis's with 12 teeth amongst them and rampant diabeetus?
I mean , we knew the Yanks were dumb, but holy shit...
Seriously. All you faggots that are still trump supporters need not look any further than the Philippines for a an example of what your nation could be in for. Inflation is high as fuck, and people dont want to do business with a crazed ass lunatic.
Tldr fuck all trump supporters; america will never be great so as long as greed exists -- and your fucking narcissit of a candidate is a perfect example of intolerance, greed, and stupidty that hinder america right now.
>still believing a nuclear war will happen
I know I've gotten older but are they still fear mongering in school so much that people believe this is an option? It would be literal political suicide. No country would support it. No matter what. It would gather planet wide outcry and the aggressing countries economy would literally cease to exist. The only country dumb enough to try it today would be NK and we all know they can barely launch a missile a few miles never mind to another continent.
from colorado too
dont worry HIllary lost our state with her hard stance on marijuana
with our recent insane amount of tax revenue generated from the pot companies she literally is threatening to attack the states pocketbook now
this is a stupid argument
yes the majority of illegals are here because of expired visas, but the first step is securing the borders from more coming in
then we work on getting the ones already here out
Building a wall will not keep people out. It will take years IF it even ever happens, and it would cut through towns and generally be a nightmare, nay, a legislative impossibility.
put it will keep people out, how many illegal immigrants come right back over the border
repeat offenders, a fraction of which actually commit violent crimes, just turn around and come back over.
the wall is not a perfect idea by any means, but at least its something.
hillary wants to spread our legs wider and scream come on in guys.
The word is 'biased' you underage retard. Lemme guess, you think breitbart and Alex Jones are providing fair and balanced coverage right? Kek stick to pookymanz kid, politics isn't your strong suit.
The wall is not a good idea from any angle, it is a meme that trump made up to have something simple that people can get behind.
Arguing that Hillary's plan is worse is not the same as proving Trump's idea is good.
The wall is a bad plan. I don't like either candidate, but the wall is not just a "not good" plan, it's a BAD plan.
Are you not gonna interrupt her?!?! I go over one second and you yell at meeee! Wahhhh
Trump looked defeated as he walked out there then just proceeded to baby bitch the entire 90 minutes.
Btw way to totally throw your running mate under the bus in Syria.
God this guy is such a joke, it was so cringy watching him up there
You're an idiot. There's an immigration deficit, people are leaving. Second, the most popular method of entering the us illegally isn't running across the desert, it's literally the airport with fake visas.
Your wall won't do shit, trump cuck.
did he grab her pussy?
this is literally what the left is reduced to
pretty sad really
oh fyi for anyone interested, ctr is trying to pull a /pol/ and is raiding the drudge report poll right now , went from 90 10 to 60 40 in less then an hour.
What is context?
I get it though, man... You read half an article on the interview that gave you your opinion on it without actually looking into it. It happens to a lot of sheeple.
>this is literally what the left is reduced to
You built that motherfucker, own it.
WTF AMERICA, ARE YOU SERIOUSLY THIS SICK, TO PROVIDE ALL THIS SHITTY IRRELEVANT NEWS? I`M OUT OF FACEPALMS ALREADY HORRY SHITTU.
Its not about which side you are, its all about just make your own decision and stop shitpost. Whole world know already, you cant get lower after nigger president.
I don't think you know how things work anon. The most popular belief I heard is trump placing hard trade sanctions on Mexico if they don't pay for the wall. But in all reality we would be shooting ourselves in the foot, we get a lot of things dirt cheap from mexico and aside from china they are our number one importers. We do a lot of business with their government. In the end we would be hurting them but us at the same time economically. So much so that Trump would have to find another way to pay for the wall.
The main thing that you idiots, including Trump don't seem to understand is that Clinton is promising to ENFORCE A NO-FLY ZONE IN SYRIA!
Do you know what that means ? When the USA, by deploying AA defenses and positioning warships to intercept UFOs, says that Syrian military CANNOT FLY IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY and that RUSSIAN PLANES AND HARDWARE CANT LEAVE OR ACT.
THAT DE FACTO MEANS WAR WITH RUSSIA AND ITS ALLIES. WTF.
On this single point alone Trump is the far wiser choice.
Also, Clinton wants to ARM THE KURDS.
Do you know what that means ? THE KURDS WILL USE USA ARMS TO FIGHT TURKEY, A MEMBER OF NATO AND THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT.
So you get the korean war thing again, multiple superpowers arming opposing locals to fight one another. Because the syrian government and russia are much stronger than kurds and rebels they will win, so unless USA puts boots on the ground their default position is a losing one, does the USA seem like a country to face such embarrassment ? hello WW3.
These are the same biased people who put a clearly clinton favored intro before the second debate, i was something like 'trump is losing and a clip of him appologizing completely ripped from context' if you didnt believe the media is biased before then you know for sure now idiots.
>THE KURDS WILL USE USA ARMS TO FIGHT TURKEY
Kurds in Turkey are the largest ethnic minority in the country. According to various estimates, they compose between 15% and 20% of the population of Turkey. Kurds are our allies, retard.
are you a total moron ? The only reason the kurds are fighting isis is because they want a peace of syria for themselves to found kurdistan, and they want a piece of turkey as well. they dont give a shit about US interests or even fighting ISIS as long as they leave them alone.
THEY HAVE AN OBVIOUS AGENDA.
Do you know what will happen once they get enough ground for themselves? They gonna bunker up and not continue fighting ISIS. And effectively you will have another terrorist state which is against turkey, against NATO and guess what, AGAINST THE USA TOO, Because syria is not in any position to control their borders and russia doesnt wants to go to war with NATO by going against the kurds, kurds will ally with RUSSIA, SYRIA and IRAN in a deal that ensures the founding of their state, that is obvious.
you're such a fucking ignorant faggot, the fact that 15 to 20 % of the turkish population is almost in open insurgency against their country strengthens my point. The turkey EU deal broke down primarily on account of their relationship with kurds
Please stop watching CNN and start learning about the real world, retard.
After this week I noticed a bunch of Trump signs taken down and put in their trashes too. This is a common sight. All my neighbors took down their Trump/Pence signs and said they will not vote for a pig like him.
I was behind Trump since the beginning. However, when I step back and look objectively at it I am starting to see that Trump says nothing.
My research into Hillary has been disappointing. First, it turns out she was appointed to defend the child rapist and actually tried to get off the case. This is not what Fox has led me to believe. Second, the email thing is just dumb. Bush and Cheney's email extinction was much more egregious. 2.2 million versus 30k. Last, Benghazi is nothing compared to the dozens of ambassador personnel killed under Bush's watch. I'm embarrassed I fell for that shit.
She is very liberal socially but not afraid to kill brown people. That's a bonus. She DOES have foreign policy experience.
I suspect we have yet to see the worst of Trump. He is a fucking moron and my love for authoritarianism is just not enough.
Sorry, my fellow alt rights fags. I'm going with Killary.
True. Supporting Trump here in Indiana used to be a nod to Mike Pence. Now, we are too embarrassed for Pence and the Trump signs are disappearing. Having a Trump sign in your yard used to mean you supported the right. Now it just means you are an obnoxious cunt like Trump and should be avoided.
The Kurds need to sell oil and to do this they'll need good relations with primarily oil importing countries. Turkey knows this and has given their autonomous region extensive investment. Past governments of Turkey maintained good relations with the Kurds and was rewarded for the effort.
>Now it just means you are an obnoxious cunt like Trump and should be avoided.
I'm pretty sure that anyone with even the most basic education thought that from the onset of this shit show.
After the first debate I wasn't watching for points and temperament. I wanted to see contrition and justice moving forward. Hillary needed to prove time that she learned from her failure to renew the SOFA with Iraq, and Trump needed to show me that he wouldn't turn our country's highest office into a circus.
Hillary talked about supporting the Kurds, she distanced herself from Obama's "red line", and she recognized that Aleppo will be a huge immigration crisis for Europe, and I appreciated that. I didn't like her advocacy of a kingpin strategy for Baghdadi, her support of the US asylum program as a fix, or her optimistic assessment that ISIS will be gone from Iraq before she takes office.
Trump did nothing to remedy my concerns about his respect for rule of law (I'LL PUT Hillary in jail, attacking institutions like the FBI and active military), his divisiveness (inflaming social justice, not giving sincere apologies, etc.), nor did he demonstrate a sufficient grasp of problems like the deficit, energy security, or Russian provocation.
My first presidential vote was cast from a military deployment for a Republican. Until this year I have remained a loyal and consistent member of the party. I was bitter from the 2006 election onward. I'm over all that now.
Trump deserves to fail. My son cringes when he relishes and projects rule by law, my wife's eye twitches when defends his repulsive comments by deflecting to Bill Clinton, and I can't forgive his persistent denial of Assad/Russian war crimes in Syria.
I hope this election establishes a mandate. I hope his supporters are punished. I look forward to her supreme Court, her tax increases on the rich, and the other wonderful work that a single party government can accomplish.
Kinda retarded? It's fucking stupid, only morons see that as a positive attribute for someone who's job it is to have restraint and consider multiple options before going forward.
Maybe that's how it appeared to his supporters, but who is the debate for? Not Trump's or Hillary's current supporters, but rather the undecideds which make up mostly women.
Hillary did a far better job in this aspect, and she answered all of the questions that were asked of her, while Trump just constantly went on Clinton bashing tirades of both Bill and Hillary. Bashing Bill does no one any good and is a childish playground style antic that Trump overused. Bill isn't running. Also, people want to hear actual policies rather than "hur: Hillary's the devil". Give me a break.
Trump just showed us more Trump, and why he is completely unfit for president.
I like how Trump fags like to compare his most recent scandal to Bill Clinton's from back in the day. The thing with Bill was that all this controversy happened while he was already in office, if any of that happened while he was running he would have not ever become president. Since every one already knows what how much of a Misogynist Trump is, there's no chance he'll ever reach the white house.
I mean look at this woman, you think she wasn't raped by the ex president of US? It's just so believable.
fuck yeah Trump grabbed her by the pussy and gave hillary a pounding
>overstayed work visa
>not paying taxes, just like trump
>my kids go to school for free
>me and my family get free healthcare
>hoping that obama's plan to give amnesty and free housing goes through
>voting hillary clinton in november.
fuck you you little piece of shit. Typical faggy comment. why? because he posted an image with a caption? get over yourfucking self. if he wants to post ANYTHING here, he can. Stupid fucking cunt.
Didn't say it was all good. Your reading comprehension is low. I said the scandal itself would have caused him to not win the election. I mean he was almost impeached because of it but since they found him not guilty, well guess what he's not fucking guilty according to a court of law.
You seem angry. Don't you have a university campus to shoot up soon?
Holy hell, are you really that thick? Even if we hypothetically build a wall, how the hell is it going to be guarded across the fucking country?
I swear, people are getting dumber and dumber these days. Next election, we are going to debate whether the Earth is flat or not.
You probably would be better off with a "wall" of tiny networked seismographs.
Can pick stuff over the ground, can pick stuff under the ground.
Can tell where they are pretty much.
It was a reference to how Lincoln had to convince congress to pass the 13th amendment and that politicians have to have both public and private positions in order to get things done. And yes she was referencing a movie but that was her point about behind the scenes policies.
you forgot people with an IQ over 50
