And when 50 people get trampled to death at the movie theater after the guy yells fire, we should gather the surviving victims to denounce the behaviour during the false alarm.

If he cared, he could do a spot on Fox and Friends. Or he could pay for a commercial on network TV. Or he could do an interview with PBS and NPR.

Other than, you know, press conferences and interviews and a couple news networks that will gladly let him go on and say whatever he wants while sucking him off with gusto.

He is right, you know.  Imagine how the Cuban missle crisis would have turned out if Kennedy didn't have access to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

You didn't think there'd be a sudden outbreak of rationality in the last few days, did you?

If only the government had a website specifically designed just for POTUS to make announcements.

So he's incapable of doing Oval Office addresses now? What, did the White House cameraman resign in protest too?

make me some tea: So he's incapable of doing Oval Office addresses now? What, did the White House cameraman resign in protest too?


Giuliani has volunteered to run the camera for the next address. That might be a problem, though, since the sound techs have also resigned and there'll be no one to remove all the background sharting noises.

Didn't he used to appear on the Fox morning show multiple times a week?
 
2021-01-17 1:54:30 PM  
Less than 72 hours to go.
 
2021-01-17 1:56:01 PM  
Where's the video of this on Fox News? Did the questioner stifle a laugh, or shock, or just nod approvingly?

Cuz this is ungodly stupid.

Certainly he's out of outlets which provide him instantaneous feedback/stimulus to his mouse-like brain.

What's going to be absolutely hilarious is that when Trump has no trappings of the presidency how far down the white trash tube he will go.

He won't have the large security detail. He won't have the same kind of limo or plane. He won't have the military backdrop. He won't have a podium with presidential seal. He won't have access to intelligence (not that he uses it now). He won't have a staff to cater to him. He won't have the same extent of sycophants. He won't have international leaders of any sort calling him. He wont have people jumping at his whim.

It will be unbelievable.

This is just like that time Osama Bin Laden couldn't denounce the terrorists that flew planes into the World Trade Center because he had been banned from Twitter.
 
2021-01-17 3:44:59 PM  
I really don't want to hear from him unless he's says "I am therefore resigning the office of the President of the United States, effectively immediately".

I would also accept "doctors have given me two hours to live".

Or use the television studio in the White House that broadcasts on all channels.
Though calling a press conference might be quicker.
Oh wait, all that staff quit.

You'll notice Kayleigh isn't saying it cause according to The Washington Post Trump turned on her (as he does everybody) and blamed her for his latest troubles, so she packed her sh*t and left Friday and won't be coming back. She didn't formally resign. It was just like "F*ck this sh*t" and she left.

I heard he left his TRUMP plane just sitting for the four years he rode around on Air Force One, with no maintenance, and now it's junk. He might actually have to....

Fly commercial.

I posted that to be cheeky, but I ended up reading the transcipt:

After all there is an element in the readjustment of our financial system more important than currency, more important than gold, and that is the confidence of the people. Confidence and courage are the essentials of success in carrying out our plan. You people must have faith; you must not be stampeded by rumors or guesses. Let us unite in banishing fear. We have provided the machinery to restore our financial system; it is up to you to support and make it work.
It is your problem no less than it is mine. Together we cannot fail.

Man, I'm glad to have a real President like this one back in office.
