Of course, when the President does have something positive to talk about, instead he wastes his time tweeting about how he isn't a failure and isn't a traitor and how he want lib train money for to build wall.

I reserve any props until I see what actually gets done. I place no value in the words of a con-man and only some in their actions.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I wonder if someone will shoot up the New York Times and use Trump's official Presidential statement that they are the enemy of the people as a defense. I wonder if Trump will pay their legal bills. #MAGA

Clean your own house first, then move on so as to not appear as conspicuous hypocrites and your message lost within a Chris Cuomo and/or Maddow rant..
So what your saying is that neither those democrates in Virginia nor Trump are fit to be POTUS! Totally agree with you! Maybe a first!

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Did anyone hear the way Trump paused before he answered the question yesterday about the NY Times allegation? I'm pretty sure he's worried about what the Times has on him because it was more than obvious he lied.

I totally caught that. Super huge tell as far as lying goes. Of course Donald may simply answer as if he's lying no matter what, since he does it so much.

Yeah, but, ummm, you'd expect this from Republicans. Right? Soooo...you saying Dems are acting just like Trump in their actions? The party that is supposed to be for the people and creating those amazing things for the environment, protecting it and they just scrap it for something that is so pathetic, it's an insult to Californians.

Whoever was saying Trump was a hypocrite for calling out California's massive Rail Fail, your equivalency is rather oddly placed here.

Observing current and past events, it would be more than likely the NYT would hire somebody to shoot their own place up and blame it on Trump--and his supporters.

I can see it now. The NYT hires gang members from Chicago.

Uh, they didn't scrap the project. You may not want to get all your news from Trump's twitter feed.

That's weird - you don't remember Trump promising to pay the legal fees of his supporters if they beat up protesters? There is actual precedent for what I said. You, as always, just made shit up

Just to clarify, you're saying you won't answer the question that's been posed several times (about why so many around Trump have been proven to be or admitted to be criminals) until the Democrats in office have a 100% unblemished record?

Going by the same metric, can we also assume there will be zero criticism by you of Democrats (and yes, that especially includes AOC) until Republicans have that similar 100% flawless record as well?

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Just read this section of Chris Cuomo's interview with Kellyanne and marvel at the bullshit

CONWAY: Great.
Let's see if there's a report to even discuss.

CUOMO: Well, that's up to you guys --


CONWAY: And let's see when these endless investigations actually end.

CUOMO: That's up to you guys.

CONWAY: The American people want their elected officials to focus on issues and my boss is.

CUOMO: No, they want that report, Kellyanne.

CONWAY: And let's see if the Democratically-controlled Congress starts to ... No.

CUOMO: Yes --

CONWAY: Here's what I see, the Democratically-controlled Congress. You have (House Intelligence Chairman) Adam Schiff saying, 'we're just going to continue to investigation.' You have Tom Steyer pressuring (House Judiciary Chairman) Jerry Nadler --

CUOMO: No. The Mueller probe, forget about the politicians for a second. The Mueller probe (has) to put a report and we should all get it.

CONWAY: You have the anti-Semitic woman from Minnesota, you have the socialist --

CUOMO: Forget about the Democrats. Focus on the facts. That report should be made public and I hope you agree with that and I hope the President does as well. He should want it more than anybody.

CONWAY: That's up to -- that's up to Director Mueller -- that's up to Mr. Mueller.

CUOMO: No, it's not. No it's not.

CONWAY: We have produced over 1 million --

CUOMO: He's got a very specific mandate. He gives it to the A.G., and the A.G. is going to decide what to do with it and that's your boy. So, hopefully, it will come out. There's a lot to unpack here. But, let's start with this from

Conway: "Let's see if there's a report to even discuss."

Whaaaaaa?

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I don't think suppressing the report would be a good thing for Trump. The dems would just call Meuller in front of the House, in an open session, and ask him directly "Did you report find any evidence of presidential wrongdoing?"
He can answer those kind of questions without revealing sources and methods, and having that spectacle on TV, coming from Meuller's lips, would be much more damning than just a report.

It'll be nice if it is within a few weeks.

If Trump really is as compromised as people are saying, allowing him to remain in office this long (and quite a bit longer) is a real danger to this country. The fact that it is only some forum members here, (and NOT elected officials) running around with their hair on fire makes it seem that it isn't the big deal that they're claiming.

There doesn't seem to be a sense of urgency from the people who should know what's going on.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Just makes me think ... as grown ups, we can pretty much ignore all the president's fear mongering easily ... but kids? I'll be damned if Trump isn't turning little kids into racists, afraid that big scary, mexicans are coming to kill them.
