Christ what an asshole

He's such a child, watching him continue to melt down as his approval drops even lower is the only silver lining in this shiat cloud.

Well and possibly seeing his business empire in ruin, with his family in jail.  That would warm the cockles of my heart.
 
2017-08-10 08:29:36 AM  
This is indeed the strangest timeline.
 
2017-08-10 08:30:02 AM  
He also polled his immediate family and minions on his staff and they rated him the greatest leader of all time.

Saying that he "was a better president" had me hoping that he was no longer president.

The President later returned the unfolding situation on the Korean peninsula, retweeting a Fox & Friends report on a statement by Secretary of Defense James Mattis warning Kim Jong-un was "grossly unmatched" in any conflict with the US.

Who needs National Security Council briefings when you got Fox and Friends amirite? K-wriste

Why in the world would they issue a statement?  No one in their right mind would ever think NK was evenly matched.  Stop giving him attention.

Woops.
I see RealSecBot doesn't report retweets, maybe that's why he's retweeting so much now?
Or he just got lazy.

For disliking Kim Jong-un so much, Trump sure seems to act like him more and more.
 
2017-08-10 08:38:03 AM  
Well, yeah, when 3/4ths of your followers are bots...

"retweeting a Fox & Friends report on a statement by Secretary of Defense James Mattis warning Kim Jong-un was "grossly unmatched" in any conflict with the US."

Yeah, no, it... we don't need Fox & Friends to issue a "report" about this. Everyone knows this. They're actively goading the president into "proving" it. It's like trying to convince an MMA fighter to beat the shiat out of a premature baby. No one thinks it would be a contest. There is literally no one saying "well, North Korea could cause an upset in the third round..."  Nope. Christ, his penis must be an innie.

He is the ultimate in projection. That's why he makes so many accusations about people. It's all coming from the perspective of someone who has done or would do the very things he accuses others of.

Man I don't pity Trump but this is hilariously sad. Obama may not have been the greatest President ever, nor was he perfect but the truth of the matter is his legacy is cemented. In addition to all the crap he had to deal with (which provided if America is still around in next 50 years) people in the long run will still say he performed his job with grace and tact.

Trump has screwed the pooch and it's not even a year yet. And it eats him up that despite the fact he is President he will never achieve Obama-like popularity ever.

Not in a million years. This one isn't even close.

You give Obama the House and Senate for a year, like dickbag here, and we get actual healthcare reform. You give that to him for 8 years, we start trust busting and redirect more money back to the largest classes of people in this country. The. Largest. The poor and middle class. Our infrastructure would be in the process of being rebuilt. Do you really think dickbag would have helped our nation in 2009, after the economic tsunami left by W and his gang of oil buddies?
 
2017-08-10 08:41:23 AM  
If Trump can pass all of the legislation he wants to pass, there will be no comparison... because, one of the bills prohibits comparing Trump to past presidents...

Progress Polls doesn't seem to exist outside of Twitter. If I had to guess I'd say that someone in the Trump administration was forced to make up a polling outfit to put in his daily "Flattering News For Donald Trump" folder.
 
2017-08-10 08:43:15 AM  
There was an article on Buzzfeed (yes, I know...) quoting a bunch of foreign diplomats talking about Trump. One thing they said is that he is obsessed with Obama. First thing he wants to know is 'did Obama approve this? Then I'm not doing it.'

/also, they all think he's ignorant

He's probably pretty jealous of Kim Jong-un, who doesn't have to deal with that pesky "rule of law" thing.
 
2017-08-10 08:45:50 AM  
Is he obsessed with OBama out of genuine dislike for the guy or is it simply because of the inevitable comparisons people make between the two? I originally thought it was the first, but I'm now thinking he really hates being told how great the old boss was so he's spending all his energy trying to undo what Obama did.

The real question here is who is stupider, crazier, and has the most synchophantic staff? It's like the Kids in the Hall sketch, the Cincinatti & Toronto Kid.

oh, STFU. I'm already tired of you dragging thread after thread into the cesspool with you, and you haven't even been here 2 months.

At least you aren't leveling personal attacks

Racists do not deserve and are not afforded sympathy or quarter.

I've no idea what you are talking about - I'm just here to generate clicks :)

I knew that, you've never been ugly toward me before, I have you in green 3!


I'll take that as a happy - on a morning it was announced the company I work for is relocating to a spot that is entirely ridiculous and they'd really like to know asap if I'll be coming along or not....

Please do!!  :)

Sorry to hear about that.  Similar happened to me years ago, although now I really wish I'd gone with. I'd be living in WA with legal green and nicer people.

Good luck no matter what you decide.
