I've known a meth addicted tow truck driver that had more class and propriety than Trump has.
Trump is farking unbelievable, and the fact that people did, much less still, support him is appalling. The fact that government officials support him is verging on treason as far as I'm concerned.

I just watch in disbelief as this mockery of leadership continues...
I'll be fine, I'll ride out the storm. I'll outlast Trump and be ok, but countless farkwits won't be. If this ship doesn't right itself afterwards, maybe I'll have to cut and run. The morans who cheer him on won't have that option though. It is incredible to watch...

He is doing a fine job, stop watching MSNBC and CNN.

Sorry to burst your bubble, Fox Entertainment watcher. The person you voted for is an idiot, and that is probably because you are a moron. Your perception and opinion is worth a month of my toenail clippings, and I've already thrown them out.

Everyone leaves the part of the water purification story out where he implies that the person he's talking to is just trying to sell him on their product like it's farking Shark Tank.

AugieDoggyDaddy: wichitaleaf: rummonkey: harleyquinnical: Mugato: He's clinically insane. It's not even debatable anymore.

He wants the grandeur, the prestige, and the praise.  The details do not matter.  He just wants to appear to be one of the people.  It's not that he is insane so much as the product of an upbringing in the 50's with having lots of money and never hearing the word 'no'.  He is a spoiled rich kid who wants to play Army.  A short temper and a fragile ego do not make him insane.  He is mentally incompetent, possibly due to the lack of exercise and vulgar eating habits.

He is widely known as a rich buffoon in NY social circles, part of the reason he prefers to go to events he hosts. I remember reading about the rich kid social groups in NY and Ivanka was always a bit of a pity case because of his idiocy.

You forgot one word when describing "NY social circles".
Liberal.
Of course they are not going to say anything good about an outsider like Trump.

How are you arriving at that conclusion?

Uncle Pooky: Trump is an idiot, and anyone who voted for him is an idiot.


At this point I am willing to give people who voted for him a little leeway, anyone who somehow STILL supports him?  You are scum of the earth piles of shiat, the embodiment of everything wrong with this country.
A bunch of sane people voted for Trump because Republican and Taxes and they are having massive regrets, can't take a shiat on people who learned from their mistakes.

Brief... accurate... undeniable...
I like it!

I've known a meth addicted tow truck driver that had more class and propriety than Trump has.
Trump is farking unbelievable, and the fact that people did, much less still, support him is appalling. The fact that government officials support him is verging on treason as far as I'm concerned.

I just watch in disbelief as this mockery of leadership continues...
I'll be fine, I'll ride out the storm. I'll outlast Trump and be ok, but countless farkwits won't be. If this ship doesn't right itself afterwards, maybe I'll have to cut and run. The morans who cheer him on won't have that option though. It is incredible to watch...

If you drew the short straw for making excuses for Trump today, you may want to save your energy. Given the whole todo with Tillerson you might have a lot of work this evening, and the damage is already done from his completely tone deaf PR visit.

Best to just pretend this doesn't exist and save up for potential fallout this evening.

Dude is a dick, why make up shiat?

I love the mind reading too, making shiat up only fuels the Dicks belief that folks lie about him.

Are you honestly trying to say that there's not even a CHANCE that Trump isn't enough of a dumbfark to pick up a can of chicken and try to lob it out into a crowd?


Supposition does not equal fact.

Do I think he's an idiot, fark yeah.

Do I think he could do something so stupid? (He's done greater already)

Still doesn't change the fact that this story is not how it's being represented, and that adds fuel to Trumps' "They lie about me" fire.

"Just the facts."

wichitaleaf: rummonkey: harleyquinnical: Mugato: He's clinically insane. It's not even debatable anymore.

He wants the grandeur, the prestige, and the praise.  The details do not matter.  He just wants to appear to be one of the people.  It's not that he is insane so much as the product of an upbringing in the 50's with having lots of money and never hearing the word 'no'.  He is a spoiled rich kid who wants to play Army.  A short temper and a fragile ego do not make him insane.  He is mentally incompetent, possibly due to the lack of exercise and vulgar eating habits.

He is widely known as a rich buffoon in NY social circles, part of the reason he prefers to go to events he hosts. I remember reading about the rich kid social groups in NY and Ivanka was always a bit of a pity case because of his idiocy.

You forgot one word when describing "NY social circles".
Liberal.

Of course they are not going to say anything good about an outsider like Trump.


How are you arriving at that conclusion?

I remember watching the documentary The 1%. Ivanka definitely came off as slightly embarrassed and apologetic over what an idiot asshole of a father she has.

He's a narcissistic sociopath, but I'm cool with the clinically insane diagnosis.  I really think there should be a psyche eval requirement when someone runs for president.  At the very least, he is mentally unfit.


You need a psych eval to get a clearance. But I guess you also need financial disclosure so whatever nothing means anything anymore.

Realizing that Puerto Rico's elderly are the ones most suffering . . . Boy, that's a stretch.

A guy who doesn't know why flashlights are needed, and had never understood why no clean drinking water for 3,500,000 people would be a life-or-death problem -- a guy like that would want to go outside a toss a frisbie around on the beach with the energetic, well fed young people who are waiting for the Maserati dealership to re-open.

The problem with "insane" is that its a meaningless term from a clinical standpoint.  It's only relevance is as an affirmative defense to criminal liability.  I'm cool with malignant narcissist or sociopath, but I think the term "insane" should be avoided lest it become his defense to charges of treason.
