Does he even last a year in the office? Maybe I brought this up in the other thread, but I'm not even talking about impeachment.

He's not a spring chicken. He's not a model of health. Both Dubya and Obama were very active presidents. Trump golfs, but can't imagine he walks the courses. What other exercises does he do?

The guys before him had experience, and you could argue early on that maybe they were in over their heads at first. This is the highest, most stressful position on the planet.

While it appears he'll delegate nearly everything but rallies to Pence and the rest of the staff, I don't know if Trump's ego can take the beating that Presidents do.

Will he be able to handle the stress and criticisms? The latter, no likely.

I'm still waiting for his press conference about his business/conflicts of interest, which got postponed ages ago. Especially now that we've learned a good chunk of his debt is held by Wall Street.

Oh, the irony of people wondering why Hilary never had press conferences during the election. We're waaaaaaaiting, Mr. Trump.

The world was glooming. And then we had our first mass shooting of 2017. Thanks Donald.

One billion dollars in debt

Although it might be a false report, as it was reported in that known lefty rag The Wall Street Journal.

Anitram I suspect you're right. Sadly, alot of those people who will now never listen to me weren't Trump, or even GOP people a year ago. Or 6 months ago. They got convinced.
And that's where I'm at. How do we do better as a society to make sure big chunks of us aren't going to fall for impossible lies?
Or is it really too far gone for some countries, and separate states are inevitable?

A report released Friday by the US intelligence community found that Russia tried to influence the outcome of the election by boosting President-elect Donald Trump and harming Hillary Clinton.

"We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump," the report said.

But Headache, have a look at the Breitbart comments section. Russia and Putin are now objects of American aspiration.

GOP Twitter is a flutter with this link...

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017...eban-santiago/


... this is what fake news does. I've been watching CNN since the news broke. They haven't once shown this picture, let alone a doctored one.

But for these people retweeting this left and right, it's the truth.

We are truly living in the Black Mirror world.

According to the news reports I've read thus far, Santiago was born in New Jersey and lived in Alaska for a time.

But yeah. It's totally the immigrants we should be scared of.

Trump wants to act like an immature child on Twitter, I have no problem with the thread title reflecting that.

They got convinced to show up and vote. Let's get real, these weren't people who might have voted for Obama but he just didn't know how to properly speak to them. They didn't get convinced of any facts or policies, they were convinced to show up and cast a ballot for a guy who said outloud what they have been thinking for years but couldn't articulate in polite society.

The equivalent on the left are people 18-25 who have very low voting engagement and if you could get them to turn out the GOP wouldn't stand a chance.

It's the mentally ill we need to worry about, but lets repeal the ACA and make sure they can't get treatment.

I just unfriended my first FB 'friend' over politics. To be fair, he was a high school acquaintance, we barely talked back then, but he belongs to my folks' church, so whatever.

I'm all for reasonable discussion, but if you're going to come at me with stereotypical Trump supporter language and call me a hypocrite because I don't give equal bashing time to Hilary and Obama, I have no room for you in my personal life.

At least my 98-year old grandpa apologized for saying 'libtard' and calls me 'honeybun' when he disagrees with me.

Libtard. Snowflake. What the fuck has happened when a whole chunk of Americans have to denigrate and abuse/label the people who are at the forefront of fighting for freedom. The freedom to be treated equally regardless of race, sexuality, gender etc.
You're a libtard if you think that's important?
Where did that even come from?

I don't think this is uncommon outside of the United States - ie. using terms to denigrate others based on political values. The notion of liberals being the ones who 'fight for freedom' is a bit amusing though.

My point is the American message is often about freedom. The land of the free. A lot of the liberal movements which seem to incense conservatives is, actually, fighting for freedoms.
Your first point is both true and sad. Howevet the venom in that Breitbart comments section is something else.
