I mean come on, right? Ha ha ha ha ha. I mean, is that clever, or what?

Obama wasn't anywhere near as crass or vulgar or sophomoric as Trump. He was every bit the thin-skinned baby.

Look it up.

I just learned that Jay-Z's producer's name is "No I.D."....that's pretty funny
He has a long history of having issues w/Blacks. Goes back to when he got in trouble for discriminating against them in not renting apartments.

Your comparisons are not even close . Your examples are like saying 1st 2nd and 3rd degree burns are the same because they are burns. Thatís how you rationalize Trump and Obama thin skin as the same . Whatsvmore amazing you believe it.. yet you present your Matt Damon story to fit your argument but actual events differ https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usa...om/amp/1796591
"I have to say, it was pretty funny," Damon said -- though he doubted Obama wrote it himself.

You keep acting as if I'm a Trump apologist like Sean Hannity. Not sure whatever gave you that impression.

Here's how I view the Obama-Damon situation.

Matt Damon is an empty-headed celebrity who confuses his fame, with knowledge of public policy. In doing so, he criticized President Obama about something he probably knows nothing about. Obama should have ignored it, but he's too much of a thin-skinned baby, so he fired back in a very un-presidential way.

Here's how I view the JayZ - Trump situation..

Matt Damon Jay Z is an empty-headed celebrity who confuses his fame, with knowledge of public policy. In doing so, he criticized President Obama Trump about something he probably knows nothing about. Obama Trump should have ignored it, but he's too much of a thin-skinned baby, so he fired back in a very un-presidential way.

Barbara Streisand hated George Bush. She hated him. Someone once asked Bush what he thought of all the insults she hurled at him, and he said something like "she's a citizen, she has that right, and I love her music".

That's what a president should do when an empty-headed celebrity spouts off. Ignore it. Obama could never ignore it (my God, did he ever stop whining about Foxnews), and Trump clearly can't ignore it.

Trump reacts in a much more infantile way than Obama did. But both were very thin-skinned babies who had zero tolerance for criticism.

Mat Damon's reaction to Obama's insult means absolutely nothing. What matters, is that one celebrity dared to criticize Obama, and he couldn't let it go. In that way, he's exactly like Trump.

WDMSO, I can refer to celebrities who like what Trump does. Does that mean Trump's behavior is acceptable to you (answer:no)? Or are you only convinced by left-leaning celebrities (answer:yes)?
