Penn Jillette says he knows Trump tapes exist, because ‘I was in the room’
I have a lot more faith in what Penn would attest to rather than what the The Queen of Mean would swear on a stack of $olid to. If the Super Trickster says it is so, I believe him.
Lying is almost as bad as committing the act itself. Usually, it take 20 or 30 more lies to try to get out of the first one. I think that is where PDT is today.
The word liar to me is very serious handle to lay on someone. IF, and it looks like he did, PDT/Donald Trump, used inappropriate language before he put his hand on the bible or after, he should own up to it, take the heat and get on with his presidency.
I have been around the block MANY times. I have dealt with people from all walks of life, the good – the bad and the ugly, the rich, the middle class and the poor, and I will say unequivocally, that the majority of them have said the word nigger at least once in their life. If I would have to take a stab at it, I would guess, the percentage of people who have used that very offensive word has to be in the high 80 – 90’%.
The kicker is, how did they use it, in what context or how often did they use it? I think that has some bearing on the issue.
Personally, I would love to see the black community start setting an example by eliminating the word from their vocabulary. That would exhibit to the rest of the world, just how derogatory they consider it.
Getting back to PDT; he has to come clean and apologize for what he may have said or done. Do I think he is a racist?? Hell no. If I though he was a racist, I would be the first to say so. As a matter of fact, it is highly unusual that he has the rapport with people from every race and socioeconomic walks of life.
We have to understand that there are many insulting words that are used by people in all walks of life daily as a matter of everyday conversation. Nasty talk has been a part of life ever since the cave man was dragging his OLD LADY by the hair and calling her a bitch.
A good example is; when La Bron James got down on PDT, he claimed he never heard any inappropriate language in the locker room. GMAFB
Is PDT right for using foul language?? It all depends on what he says. Everyone that has sat in the BIG CHAIR, including Saint Obama has crossed the line with nasty dialog at one time or another.
Some of the presidents had worse mouths than the longshoremen did.
BUTT, always the BUTT. If we want to play the game, we have to play on an even playing field. Is it any worse when a white person calls a black person a nigger than it is a black person calling a white person, as they do on a frequent basis, a CRACKER?
Definition by Jelani Cobb, a historian at the University of Connecticut and a contributor to The New Yorker. Very interesting definition:
“Cracker,” the old standby of Anglo insults was first noted in the mid 18th century, making it older than the United States itself. It was used to refer to poor whites, particularly those inhabiting the frontier regions of Maryland, Virginia and Georgia. It is suspected that it was a shortened version of “whip-cracker,” since the manual labor they did involved driving livestock with a whip (not to mention the other brutal arenas where those skills were employed.) Over the course of time it came to represent a person of lower caste or criminal disposition, (in some instances, was used in reference to bandits and other lawless folk.)
It is time to start setting good examples for the younger generation coming up, so they do not have to live under the racial tensions we do. Both word are extremely offensive and only resurrect bad times, open old wounds and churn up hard feeling when used.
As for PDT, he could have a very rough way to go, if and when the tapes are played. How will he explain that??
