Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I assume the implication is that once we've won this war, American businesses will be selling more to China and therefore making more money, which will eventually trickle down to the people being hurt by this trade war. So eventually the Dow will be 20,000 points higher according to that crazy theory.

Soybean farmers are probably stoked about the eventual theoretical stock market gains some time in the future, though.

He has the brain of an uneducated 5yo. Even Kindergarten learning would be enough to know that he's not fooling anyone with that shit.

..and that is probably one of the reasons why he does stuff like this. This narcissistic egomaniac gets great pleasure in being able to say utterly insane things and watch people fall over themselves to defend him. At some point it is probably sport for him... "is there anything so crazy that my supporters won't defend?"

Eh, I honestly don't buy that 4-d chess stuff. He's just an idiot.

Wait, is that conference from today? That's not even the updated trajectory, is it (even without the sharpie)?

Well sure but the law doesn't apply to Trump. We've already learned that.

Yup apparently he had a printout of an older trajectory made so he could add the sharpie to it! It's from August 29th

Cool! Chaos! I'm having so much fun with the first geriatric "millennial" president - the result of being told he's the best at everything for his entire life.

Nobody knows cyber like he knows cyber. He's the best at cyber. The best.

Trolling and basic manipulation to feed one's ego isn't 4D chess.

That can’t be real. I mean can it? Doesn’t he understand the Streisand effect? He keeps bringing up his mistakes and people are going t keep talking about his mistakes.

It was really nice when* we had a president who cared more about human lives than his fragile ego.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

You guys missed the best part of the story

"I know that Alabama was in the original forecast. They thought it would get it," the president said. When a reporter pointed out the line looked like it was added with a Sharpie pen, the president responded, "I don't know, I don't know, I don't know."



He couldn't say "No it wasn't"?
I give up.

How long before there's memes showing Trump extending his dick length in a picture using a Sharpie? (I know they already exist)

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Couldn't he find a white sharpie (do they exist?) to at least make the map look plausible?
What a joke this country has become thanks to this idiot con-man (and his enablers).
