Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

Another Monday morning and the dotard in chief is on Twitter defending the I Love Beer and Squee guy because another sexual assault accusation. Stumbled onto this on Twitter showing all the times Trump has accused the victims of sexual assault of lying. The thread is compelling not only because of the amount of people but the fact that nothing is done to these assholes.

I'm sure Trump's treatment of women is seen as a positive by many of his supporters (including women). Remember, overwhelming approval among Republicans for Trump, even with everything he has done. Obviously they like what he does.

I also think, for some, it is because they know they have done those exact things. And a POTUS and SC Judge that has, lets them think its not a big deal. Eases their conscience.

Sure. Lots of "boys will be boys" type comments bear that out.

Pompeo and Mnuchin both said the same thing, does he not know he said these things? or doesn't care? or just MAGA!

Since there is no press conference anymore where this exact question can be asked, he has no incentive or reason to back up anything he says.

I agree. That's why it was important that Trump made that comment after the Charlotteville incident.that there were good people on both sides. You can be or support a racist or sexist asshole, and still be "good."

I think another thing is that many people see Trump as a bargain with the devil. They might not like everything about him, but he gives them what is most important to them -- gun rights, conservative judges, a win in the "culture war," abortion restrictions, MAGA, 401K, etc. They don't see or don't care about the harm that a President can do by being stupendously stupid and devoid of substance and values.

You seem to be implying that questions were answered in the Sanders briefings.

If only wed known he would blatantly lie and deny, like if immediately after a presidential debate he had denied saying something hed just said live in front of millions of people.

At least wed get the formal lie on camera instead of shouted responses in front of a helicopter (that Trump is intentionally doing to fuck up the audio).

Now we are "Locked and Loaded" for a possible military response against Iran over the bombing of the Saudi Oil plant. Saudi Arabia buy billions of dollars of military tech from us. Why can't they be responsible for any military response? Why does it always have to be us?

It's part of a long, ongoing (and successful) effort to de-legitimize the media. The "what you're seeing is not what's really happening" vibe. It could get really bad if Trump is elected to a second term.

Because it’s only bad to help other countries when the POTUS with dark skin and not born here does it. When THIS POTUS does it, its totally appropriate, in the US and world interest and to use appropriate language, “nanny nanny boo boo”.

Of course that can be said for literally anything Trump does.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

To be fair, the Obama administration was just as in bed with the Saudis as the current one.

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 3

I know both administrations are/were in bed with the Saudis. My point is they have their own military, mostly made up of weapons they bought from the US, and if there is to be any military response, it should come from the Saudis, not the US.

Odds on if they'll actually get the subpoenaed returns, or if they'll get blocked, just like they ALWAYS DO.

Donald Trump
I will, and have always expected to, lose BILLIONS of DOLLARS for the privilege of being your President - and doing the best job that has been done in many decades.
How about we make a deal right now to save you BILLIONS of DOLLARS?

I think another key difference, in line with what you are saying, was that Obama wasn't going around saying we should exit NATO and espousing other such "America First" arguments.

What administration hasn't been in bed with the Saudis since they found oil in the desert out there?

Yeah, this has nothing to do with who is President, the US has been in bed with the Saudis for decades.
