blood fist -
Is there something about the word "source" that you don't understand?
Come on man. I've asked you three times already.
Without a source, it's just your opinion. -- please write that on the blackboard a hundred times.
Please come back with a legit source for your claim...or I'm not wasting anymore time on you.
The source is Trump's Twitter. It is posted in the OP.
You keep insisting that OP, and I, claim that Trump said those words. We made no such claim. The claim is “promote.” Retweeting praise is a form of self-promotion.
OK. It seems like what you're trying to sayis: Since Trump was technically only being accused of 'promoting himself" then the thread title does NOT insinuate that he was trying to promote himself? That's weird thinking, but I guess it's a point. I think the title does insinuate that he was promoting himself and had started the whole thing himself..I guess that's a point. I don't agree with it, but I see what you are trying to say.
When I see a thread title like " Trump promotes himself as King of Israel and Jesus", it certainly gives the impression that Trump started the whole thing by himself. Which he did not.
You are hanging on a technicality of semantics.
