    Trudeau is being true to his characters here. Even though we know in hindsight that they will split up, we can see the essential good in both of them overcoming their individual selfish or inflexible tendencies. (I’m sure it won’t last long.)

    Jack’s World said, @DavidHuieGreen.“Jack’s World provides yet another example of what true goodness is really all about:”.If anyone is wondering, I asked.“Please cite any evidence Trump has any integrity whatsoever at all.”.Jack’s World seems to think “integrity” and “a good deed” are the same thing. Thus Jack’s World cited an instance of Donald Trump helping a widow by threatening to sue a banker “for murder.”(The man killed himself hoping to get life insurance to pay off the mortgage, which it wouldn’t do. Inability to read numbers may have contributed to all his problems as well as a failing mind thinking murdering oneself to get money is a decent thing to do. I’m not judging, though.) .Thus, if I rob a bank and give a wino or meth-head or little old lady a hundred dollar bill from my haul, Jack’s World considers that a “good deed” and a “good deed” as “integrity” completely separate from the bank robbery..Even when looking at a simple definition of the word “Integrity,” Jack’s World thinks they apply..Integrity: The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness..synonyms: honesty, probity, rectitude, honor, good character, principle(s), ethics, morals, righteousness, morality, virtue, decency, fairness, scrupulousness, sincerity, truthfulness, trustworthiness".Having rejected the dictionary definition, Jack’s World believes an example has been given. Just in case, though, Jack’s World cites another “good deed” as an example of integrity of Donald Trump lending his jet to a sick child to fly him cross country. .In this instance he doesn’t seem to have threatened anyone, so it is much closer to being a good deed — even if he bragged long and hard about it..It just still doesn’t fit the original request..“Please cite any evidence Trump has any integrity whatsoever at all.”.By this point I’m tempted to explain the difference between “has” as in right now and "had* as in 28 years ago-maybe, but Jack’s World is having problems finding any kind of example so we’ll let it ride.

    Jack’s World said,@DavidHuieGreen“Yesterday you insulted an elderly widow that was helped by Trump.”.Actually, I didn’t. .You attacked @Coyoty by saying, “You would actually stoop so low that you would ridicule the sincere religious faith of an elderly widow?” which he hadn’t. He had agreed with the woman when she called it a miracle that Donald Trump had helped her..In my case, you put words in a dead woman’s mouth, “Yes, the widow that he helped would agree that all of these synonyms do indeed describe (Donald Trump).”. Have you no shame?.“Are you sure that you don’t want to insult the sick child that was also helped by Trump?”.Since I didn’t do the former, why would I do the latter?
