Trump's Thanksgiving phone call to troops overseas was totally inappropriate. He has yet to visit any of them either. I'm thankful for the difference I've made. Barf.

The "leader of the Free world" thing was always kind of bullshit anyways. The "most powerful person in the Free world" however used to be true. Being the most powerful Western nation doesn'tnt necessarily make you a leader.

That, however, is now dead.

We may still be the most powerful nation in theory, but Trump is a laughing stock and holds no respect on the global stage. They're all just waiting him out and making their own power plays to fill the void.

The most powerful nation on Earth is leaderless. And if we are leaderless, do we actually still hold power?

The irony of the group of voters who were moved consumed with Obama making us look weak actually electing someone who actually made us weak is, um, well, ironic.

At least he’s not launching endless wars. Remains coming back from North Korea. I’ll give him that as one good point.

He hasn’t launched wars yet. Just give him time, especially if he makes it to a second term.

Wow, what an achievement...

I guess I could be president if that’s what the bar has been currently set as.

Give me a break.

Drone strikes are up over those ordered by Obama - something Obama was criticized for

We're still in Afghanistan. We're still in Iraq.

Russia is getting more aggressive in Crimea - we'll do nothing.

We're using tear gas on children.

Journalists working for American newspapers are being murdered. We ignore.

Out elections are still actively under attack. We do nothing.

Hate crimes are skyrocketing.

The world is slipping down a dark path, and America is doing nothing to try and prevent the slide.

But yes... we haven't invaded anyone.

And hey, North Korea sent 55 boxes of remains (one identifiable) out of the approximately 5,300 remains that never came home. All we had to do was legitimize a brutal dictator in return.

So much winning I can't keep track.

And don't leave out that the economy, while currently is doing fine, is forecasting another recession in the future.

Probably just in time for a Democrat to take over in the White House so we can go through the same shit Obama did again.

Still better than what we currently have of course.

GM lays off close to 15,000 jobs and will close up to five plants.

Thanks Trump!

The national debt, something Republicans used to care about and something Trump himself said he'd eliminate in 8 years, has skyrocketed.

But he hasn't started any wars that we're already in!

Here's a check from rich financier John Barron. Just please don't cash it until after I'm out of office, by his request. I promise he's good for it.

Trump says tear gas was not used on children at the border. So the pictures and video were fake?

The only thing I will say about this is that this recession has been in the forecast for quite a while, if the meeting we had about five years ago at a company I was working for was accurate. Basically they let everyone at the company know the state of the future for them, because they'd lost a lot of money that year. They'd hired analysts and all that and basically the agreement was that the economy was going to get a ton better right before it crashed again in 2020-2022, which I believe was supposed to be the low point. That's what I remember from the meeting, at any rate. Take that as it were, but it seems like this is inevitable.

Have I mentioned how much I find this guy to be a piece of human garbage? Living. Breathing. Garbage.
