So. Much. Winning.
 
2017-08-30 12:40:25 PM  
What are the odds on at least one mention of crowd size?
 
2017-08-30 12:40:47 PM  
Christ, what an asshole.
 
2017-08-30 12:41:12 PM  
So. Much. Presidenting.

I think he should mention the importance of the wall again.

/Whistling past the graveyard pops to mind, literally in this case.
 
2017-08-30 12:41:35 PM  
Anything to hear another round of cheers from his inbred, mouth-breathing, bottom-feeding sycophantic followers who think MAGA means having an old, feeble, impotent white man in power. GROTESQUE.

Anybody think that a man pushing for changes to the tax code should reveal his own taxes?
Or should we just trust him that he wouldn't pursue something that would be a conflict of interest?
 
2017-08-30 12:42:27 PM  
He will whine that the media is treating him unfairly for his Harvey visit while expressing zero empathy for the actual victims.

Approximately the same odds of at least one mention that he won Missouri in the last election, and that he won the electoral college vote.

I was promised fire and fury over Korea.

When he said that, I was excepting Dragonforce to appear behind him and start playing music.

/But I don't think Dragonforce approves of Trump

Is this the thread where Fark politics regulars claim the tax system is perfect and needs no reform? Thought so.
 
2017-08-30 12:45:30 PM  
I'm sure this will do wonders for his approval rating
 
2017-08-30 12:46:09 PM  
It's so weird to give a speech on something you will never achieve.

I'm sure all he'll talk about is the YUGE turnout at his appearance in Texas (which, BTW, didn't involve him actually visiting Houston*, unlike his predecessors, who actually visited with victims), and how Obama was golfing during Katrina.

*He stopped in Corpus Christie, where skies were clear and there was zero risk to Melania's expensive stiletto heels

Fool's bet. A more fun time is the adjective bingo game.

Is this the thread where Trump actually gives specifics of his tax plan and doesn't just say how the current plan is terrible and his new plan will be the bestest plan evarrrrr?
 
2017-08-30 12:47:23 PM  
I hope his insulting visit yesterday to Corpus Christi and the fact that he is barely putting any personal focus on the hurricane aftermath sours enough Republicans that TX flips next election to the Democrats.  However, the election is still 3 years away and I don't think their memories are going to be that clear so far out.
 
2017-08-30 12:47:36 PM  
I want him to either A) president up and start doing a good job or B) flub so spectacularly that the GOP has no choice but to get rid of him immediately.

Problem is, the answer is always C).

Is this the thread where Fark politics regulars build a strawman they can knock down while patting themselves on the back? Thought so.
 
2017-08-30 12:47:42 PM  
Of course he's going to the reddest part of the state (southwest) and the third-largest city. St. Louis and Kansas City wouldn't have him.

We know he hasn't been getting the crowds he wants and his team has been making good use of camera angles.  I wonder if some of the cheering and chanting is being faked too.

penetrating_virga: Is this the thread where Fark politics regulars claim the tax system is perfect and needs no reform? Thought so.


No, it's the thread where we point out there's a farking major ongoing disaster going on in the country while the president tries to make everything about himself.

penetrating_virga: Is this the thread where Fark politics regulars claim the tax system is perfect and needs no reform? Thought so.


No.  This is the thread where sane rational people express their disgust for a party that is so bought and paid for by the 1% that their only focus is reducing the tax burden on their owners.

I think you're looking for some other website.  Maybe one run by a recently fired White House staffer?

You wanna point out who said it?

Is this the part where you voice your support for massive tax cuts to the wealthy that add to the budget deficit?

penetrating_virga: Is this the thread where Fark politics regulars claim the tax system is perfect and needs no reform? Thought so.


Nope. I strongly believe that the rich need to be taxed more.

Believe me, when he starts talking, and I scream, "EABOD" at the television, that isn't being faked, that I can tell you.

Hope he picks up some meth and a set of walnut bowls for the White House,
 
2017-08-30 12:52:02 PM  
I'm going to go out on limb here and guess that this might be the most spectacular and tremendous plan in the history of plans.

Anyone have the over/under on how long it takes for someone to ask him why he lied about having anything to do with Russia as they hold up a copy of the Letter of Intent he signed in 2016?

I suspect the percentage of trumpers with a 401k or knowledge of is exceptionally small.

Poor people would be richer if they just had less money.
 
2017-08-30 12:56:04 PM  
I'm guessing his tax plan will be as spectacular as his health care reform plan.

It's like the "roar" of a recent Mustang's engine, which turned out to be funneled through the sound system and only the driver could hear all that "power".
