I doubt I could make small talk with those assholes, too.  I'd probably end up stabbing my ears.

Of course the president can't make small talk. Small talk doesn't revolve around how very, very tremendous Donald is or how much Ivanka's plastic surgery made him want to grab her by the pussy, so why would he pay attention to it?

Trump probably feels intimidated by the term "small talk". . .he probably only wants big talk. . .talk about his big hands, bigly, very most bigly.  Not small, you're the small.

He's no doubt like those party boors that don't small talk because they're very busy telling you how amazing they are.

Schumer, who also hails from New York City, has maintained an acquaintanceship with Trump for years

They can talk about delis and shiat.

Why would he need small talk? He's lived a life where every room he enters, he immediately becomes the centre of attention.

Why on Earth would anyone suffer someone as foolish as Trump lightly? The man only tolerates those willing to flatter him and even they seem to be disposable.
 
2017-09-15 06:33:18 PM  
McConnell and Ryan can kiss his orange ass, is probably how Trump feels about it. They're useless. They've been useless and by all measure will probably continue to be useless.

Trump should run as a Democrat next time. At least they can all pull in the same direction. (The wrong one, but at least they're organized.) What's left of the Republican party is an embarrassment.

McConnell is from a small town in Alabama. Ryan is from a medium-sized town in Wisconsin. Neither had a direct relationship with Trump until he ran for president.

Schumer is from Queens. He's known Trump for a long time.

Who do you think Trump feels more comfortable around?

I think Turtle and Liftbro try to talk to him like he's president and Chuck and Nancy just handle him like a constituent.

You know, the second of those "these gloves are too small for my hands" incidents in the flood areas was so damn pathetic. If you give him the benefit of the doubt that the first one really was small gloves, and absolutely nothing more, then his team should have made sure it didn't happen a second time.

But of course that's not what it was about. Not only does he have to make every event about him, he cannot let the slightest thing go.

No, "let the slightest thing go" was not a pun. *shudder*

It's hard to imagine Trump being able to make idle conversation with anyone, really. He knows nothing, has no interests, and has to be the center of attention and the sole topic of conversation. How would anyone "chat" with him?
 
2017-09-15 07:36:50 PM  
Meh, can't fault the douchebag in chief for this one, I couldn't do it either.   Maybe I could fake my way through a day of watching football with LiftBro if there was enough beer.   But 10 minutes of the turtle and I'm sure my arms would go rogue, rip my brain from my skull and punt it down the hallway.

Trump can't make small talk?  Trump IS small talk.  He's a nattering imbecile who has command of about 500 words in English which he repeats endlessly ("beautiful", "Believe Me", "I", "Me", "My/Mine", and so on).  If someone manages to get a word in, it's through flattery.  Otherwise 45 perfectly embodies a line Fran Lebowitz once wrote:  "The opposite of talking is not listening, it's waiting to talk again".

It's a proven fact: you can only make small talk with people who have lips. Neither Ryan nor McConnell does.

When you are dealing with a Cat 5 NARC -- small talk cannot exist:  They legitimately only want to talk about one subject - themselves...or how something that relates to them makes them super awesome.  (i.e., Beautiful weather were having.  NARC:  Why yes...notice how awesome my tan is now?)

My guess is Schumer has known Trump long enough to know this -- Ryan and McConnell still think they are dealing with someone who can be bent to the GOP will.

I heard a gentleman on NPR offer a perspective that seems to make a lot of sense. D2S sees the dems as a competing business he can try to make deals with, but seems to view the republicans as shiatty employees that won't do what their boss tells them to do.

Which both explains his attitude. . .and just goes to show his catastrophic misunderstanding of his situation if he really thinks the Republicans are his "employees"

Can we now just admit as a country that the last thing we need is a career businessman with no government experience in any high office?
