It's not the use of the phrase.

Kelly very very clearly and emotionally explained that the use of the phrase was appropriate/respectful/complimentary.

The media and many many others are getting all hung up on the phrase instead of the intent which was OBVIOUS beyond the pale. My point is....a LOT of very smart people are so blinded by their Trump hate that they are losing all sense of perspective and are acting irresponsibly out of character. I see it from my friends, this board, other boards, news casts, etc. etc. The anti-Trump crowd is cheering this as if it's a good thing. It is not. Look at it this way, after Trump is long gone, if our media and our divisiveness continues to lose perspective and supports someone we much prefer to Trump in a biased manner......WE lose.

        The phrase itself was very poorly executed and flubbed, no doubt about that. However, I think that most people are uncomfortable with expressing condolences, especially when they live in a fishbowl,... more

        and this isn't one of them. You can't just throw $h!t at Trump all the time. Like profanity, it loses impact. I rarely cuss, and when I do, the OP knows I'm really mad. It is reserved so its impact... more

          I like a bit of salacious commentary. And a dash of gossip, too. A good scandal now and again. Human nature. But the nonstop bashing of the Presidency is weakening the whole. It is a major... more
