His kids are one thing, but what really concerns me is the possibility that some of these "deep secrets" will be passed on to Russia.

Why don't we also give top secret clearance to other millionaires with business investments abroad. I mean, what could go wrong?
it always bothered me when Trump kept saying it would be a massive waste of money for him if he lost the election, i mean, i couldn't help wondering if he saw presidency as a means of financial gain

Or not.

Trump didn't ask for top secret clearance for his kids: official

Misinformation is the new information. Put enough out there and nobody knows, nor cares, what's true and what's bullshit.

Well his campaign was communicating with the Russians the whole time, but I'm sure there's nothing to worry about.

He does have the best brain.

Trump voters sure don't, we've learnt that much over the past year.

Trump now butthurt that he didn't win the popular vote. Tweeting about it.

Please indulge my ten seconds of armchair psychology: the problem with sons that need to prove to their fathers that they are worthy of their love is that, no matter what they do, that insecurity will never go away. Even if you become President of the United States.

A few weeks ago a friend told me about a New York Times podcast he recently heard that included a very revealing interview with Donald Trump. (I haven't heard it yet)

At one point Trump was asked if he has (like most of us) looked at himself in the mirror and taken stock of who he is as a person. The answer, according to my friend, was something to the effect of "I haven't because I'm afraid of what I would see", which tells you a lot about what he thinks of himself.

He can't even run a fucking transition:

President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition operation plunged into disarray on Tuesday with the abrupt resignation of Mike Rogers, who had handled national security matters, the second shake-up in a week on a team that has not yet begun to execute the daunting task of taking over the government.

Don't worry guys, Trump's impending financial crisis is clearly just from fallout from the Obama administration. And Obama's success was a product of the Bush administration policies finally showing results. And the Bush administration's economic woes were actually a product of fallout from the Clinton administration. And the Clinton administration's economic success was actually just layover as Ronnie Ray planted the seeds and HW sowed them.

After the Jamie Dimon rumors, leaks suggested the transition team was looking at Bernanke or Paulson as treasury secretary. Bernanke has apparently immediately shut this down, anyone who knows anything about him knows he'd be horrified (as an aside he is a huge baseball fan and his autobiography is great). The problem with the Trump administration which his supporters don't get at all is that not only has he alienated half the country but most capable people don't want anything to do with him for a million and one reasons. So while it would actually be a very positive development to have a guy like Bernanke involved, Trump's behavior and attitude and policy positions preclude that. So he will reap what he has sown, unfortunately for everyone else they'll have to live with it too.

Well, the Clinton part is at least half true. He stripped away half the regulations and pushed for people who couldn't afford homes to be able to get one. W just hammered down a nail that was already in place.

I'm not lauding the democrats for their success. I'm mocking the republicans for the same wash-rinse-repeat explanation for recent economic failure, which we are sure to see a repeat of.

conned!

"Just before the election, after the last debate, 51 percent of them intending to vote for Trump supported increasing taxes on high-earning individuals," says Michael Pollard of RAND.

But Trump's plan does the opposite, says Lily Batchelder, a law professor at New York University and visiting fellow at the Tax Policy Center.

"If you look at the most wealthy, the top 1 percent would get about half of the benefits of his tax cuts, and a millionaire, for example, would get an average tax cut of $317,000," she says.

That type of reflection seems highly out of character for Trump.

So where were these articles during the campaign? Maybe they were out there, just wasn't discussed on any media forum (major networks, CNN, Fox, etc)

His economic plan will not bring jobs back in the manufacturing sector, those were never coming back. Automation and globalization will continue, despite what anyone says.

His trade plans, while there is some merit in making sure it's fair (for both sides), probably won't have the desired effect either. I'm not sure we really want to piss off China either.

But all that being said, it'll be Obama's fault for anything that happens.
