Trump's mental and emotional deterioration seems to be accelerating.
 
2018-01-03 04:19:05 AM  
Will someone from Trump's depleted and brain starved regime just shut him the hell up already?

I had a dream last night that there was another presidential election in the USA, because everyone was fed up with him, but Trump got to sit in the oval office being mad for the next 3 years still, while people tried to figure out how to get him out early.

What a joke.

How detailed can we get this?
If it's a big production, maybe we can keep him away from the big button for a few weeks. What's Mark Burnett doing? Is there a Republican version of Billy Crystal to host? Jeff Foxworthy maybe? The entire media will show up if they know Trump is going to be there, so an audience is a given.

No one in the history of humanity has so clearly broadcasted their insecurity.
 
2018-01-03 06:18:58 AM  
Trump confirms he doesn't actually work and watches TV all day, live tweeting it sometimes.
 
2018-01-03 06:20:24 AM  
You're going to start seeing a lot more "I didn't vote for him, but we need to respect the President" comments from people who voted for him.

Between this and his literal nuclear schmenzer measuring contest with North Korea, I can't disagree.

Can't americans Truman Show him ?
Tell him he can do the job from his gold-plated Mar-a-Lago dumpster, feed him fake Fox News feed (oh the irony) and have someone else in charge meanwhile?

Prop him with a fake twitter account followed only by bots. Russian ones, preferably.

Don't bother about the elections either, feed him with enough fast food and 2020 won't be an issue. That or just reset the calendars every new year, not that he'd notice.

sillydragon: Eh, realistically this isn't a bad move for him. This isn't intended for you and I, it's red meat for the deplorables. I'm sure he realizes that the Trumpkin-Americans will eat it up and believe every word of it, and everyone else will mock/ignore it. But that doesn't matter because the deplorables will never believe anything the 'fake news media' says, regardless of how rock solid the proof is, or how many barrels of ink they use up saying it.


I think this hits on one of the most concerning things about Trump though, which is he doesn't see himself as President of the US--he sees himself as president of the people that voted for him. I don't think we've ever seen that before.

I'll sign off on this. We're already seeing the, "But the media is just so mean/unfair to him!" excuses.

Then let them rise up against America's military and let's end this.

All the networks should hold the same kind of award and give it to him. Everyday this week until Monday they should do a story on how often he lies.

He doesn't spend a lot of time in public, when you think about it. He almost constantly shuffles among the White House, his Jersey golf club, and Mar-a-Lago.

no, trump cares very much about his public image.  he's obsessed with making sure people see him as 'the best'.  its probably the ONLY thing he cares about.  gods know he don't give a shiat about the country he was elected to run.

Liberal: "This is ridiculous!  He's the farking President of the United States!  Can't he even attempt to look busy?!?  He shouldn't even have time to do all this twitter crap, and now he's coming up with an awards show?!?  I thought he was "real busy?"  and getting back to work!"

Conservative: "Oh yeah?  Just like Obama was "real busy" getting his Big 10 basketball picks every year, right?!?"

Liberal: "You really have no comprehension of reality, do you?"

Conservative: "I know.  I'm a sad, sad being..."

Correct. He cares about his image in the media, which is why he's spent most of his public life obsessed with it and devotes most of his presidency to feuding with journalists instead of doing his actual job.
 
2018-01-03 06:38:21 AM  
For maximum irony it will be the same day he passes 2000 lies.

You know just about every single defamation lawyer on retainer in the country is having an orgasm today.  This is just about the dumbest thing Trump could do, aside from running for president.

They've already started. It's the same wave of self-declared Libertarians from 2006.

I have a new theory.
Trump is suffering from the effects of polonium poisoning.  The FSB miscalculated the dosage, so it didn't kill him, just made him feebleminded.

ZM Punk: so he skips the white house correspondent dinner because he can't take criticism, but pulls shiat just like this.


He won't go to parties unless he's the big guest of honor, too.

He always has to be the big shot, the one in charge, calling the shots. He hates being in a position of weakness, vulnerability or subservience.

That's why he never participated in NY society events, because they wouldn't kow-tow to him and in some occasions actively repulsed him and even uninvited him. He was vulger, boorish,. unrefined, and always bragging about his wealth and accomplishments -- the exact things the old money aristocracy despised.

This guy is the absolute best that Republicans can do.  That never ceases to frighten and amaze me.  If this is leadership in their eyes, I'm eternally farking grateful that Barack Obama was the exact opposite of that.

I'm starting to think Pence actually runs things behind the scenes and he lets Donald think he's really in charge.

As long as his antics keep the ignorant rubes voting for the party, they'll keep him around.

I think the chances of him going through with it are 50/50.  If he doesn't follow through, there will be  a follow up tweet  from him declaring how awesome he is for not doing it.

Remember, remember! 
The eight of November, 
Republican treason and plot; 
I know of no reason 
Why Republican treason 
Should ever be forgot! 
Putin and his companions 
Did the scheme contrive, 
To blow the US and democracy 
All up alive.
