They didn't even comment about the stuff going on today. You would think a president would want to put people at ease, but no. It's all about stuff on social media. And spewing his fake facts.

He will eventually beat W. for lowest approval ratings. AND he's well on his way to worst President ever. W. is sitting pretty right now.



I do Mr. President, I actually do.

I'm sure his base are loving the media dress down by the Press Secretary. That's who that message is designed for. If the President wants to govern the whole country, he needs to speak to the whole country, not his core constituents.

It was an impromptu press conference. Because Trump's fweewings were hurt after his low turnout (followed by the massive Women's March turnout). The "real press conference" is on Monday.

Such a shit show. And the brouhaha over the crowd size will drown out the other lies... like the CIA employees giving him a "5 minute standing ovation". Think about how uncomfortable an ovation that long would be. There's no way in hell it was anywhere near that long.

That was unbelievable.

THIS is how he wins the news cycle. Pay attention. Everyone will be talking about Trump and the media and not the Women's march now. They HAVE to cover this because it's so outlandish.

I was Watching Fox News's The Five and other than a few even they you could tell think Trump is nuts. He is not going to have many supporters if this crap keeps up. The only true Cheerleaders he has in the media are Lou Dobbs, Eric Bolling, Trish Regan and Hannity. Even O'Reilly is not 100% cheerleading for him

Do we make it official or we give more chances out? It's only the first weekend, 4 years to go.

If it continues like this. no way he lasts 4 years, Pence and congress won't allow it. I thought no way he gets removed but he is becoming destructive to Republicans, more than a removal from office would be

Well some people are putting out fake photos making it look like Trump had a bigger crowds. I'm sure many people don't realize they are fake.

But the Press Secretary said "PERIOD!". So it must be true!

They got what they wanted for so long - business people, not politicians - in charge of government and politics.

But I won't get caught up in something frivolous. Will wait to see what terrible things they're doing, before I start making protest signs.

Yup, it's John Oliver's "bed of nails" theory. Step on one nail, it hurts like hell. Throw up a bunch of nails you can walk on them. And I'll add, begin to see it as normal.

re: The Offical Trump Presidency Thread: Don Jr & Russians

Trump has promised to do many things that people already find objectionable. Why should anyone wait until they do what they've promised to do before protesting? Isn't the promise enough? Especially when government is involved and things can be difficult to roll back.

Well, if I were to do anything, I'd have to be really on-fire about it. Like, you know it's bad if I feel the need to do something like that.
