    An MBA is a masters degree and not for nothing I know many a-holes with equal or higher educational attainment ...... There are many things that can be referenced to show qualities of not being a jerk..... I'm not sure degree grabbing is one of them

    Is everything
    My father in recent years has veered far right. He loves Trump. He is a highly educated wonderful caring person who has led a kind and giving life. However, when he starts talking politics nowadays he can easily turn into a complete a-hole spouting all the offensive Fox News greatest hits.

    The GOP basically has two tiers. There are the wing nuts they interview at the rallies and the there are the educated wink wink people that are in on the deception. The second are the ones that benefit from the tax breaks etc. They typically say things like, “I don’t agree with Trump but I like what’s happening with the economy. “

    No need to "spin" anything. He's an *******.

    Either he's misogynistic, greedy/selfish, misinformed, gullible or simply has no idea or doesn't care about our basic responsibilities under the Social Contract we all went into as humans when we decided it was better to live as a group than to fend for ourselves alone.

    Don't you know that we're at war with Eurasia, we've always been at war with Eurasia, and that Eastasia has always been our allies?

    Education and intelligence has little to do with character. We could cite concrete examples of that for days on end. (See: Brett Kavanaugh )

    I even held off on calling AZCB34 himself a you-know-what for even suggesting that a higher degree exempts from being an *******.

    How many people in Fox's propaganda machine hold post-graduate degrees?

    Not even actual patriotic accomplishments — legitimately earning a Purple Heart (Kerry), being a tortured POW who stayed that way for five years because you'll only agree to go home if the POWs ahead of you go home first (no need to say his name), or actually losing limbs and motor functions in a war (Sen. Duckworth) — can keep the actual assholes from targeting and maligning you. What's a god-damned degree compared to that?

    I'm surprised so many of you have missed the point of the mention of the master's degree. The argument was about not all of Trump's supporters being stupid. Someone said they may be smart, but they're all aholes. AZCB34 then says, my dad's smart and voted for Trump, you're saying he's an ahole?

    He wasn't implying that being smart exempts you from being an ahole. You guys said if you're smart and support Trump you are an ahole.

    Apparently, according to you guys, if you're a dumb Trump supporter, you might not be an ahole.

    ALL THAT SAID, "if you support X, then you're Y" is patently against the rules, so knock it off, all of you.

    Linderbee, what would your personal opinion be on a valid reason in your eyes to vote for Trump as POTUS?
