Today is a helpful reminder that Trump's "silent majority" isn't actually a majority of our country, nor does his base represent America.

 

democrats and american liberalism has spent more than 50 years hammering sexual deviants who decades ago were silent majorities in our society into mainstream majorities so by what criteria to they know minimalize the minority of people who support trump?

 

simple. on the basis of personal disagreement...from the very people who have preached to no end about tolerance and inclusion...but first you gotta agree with them.

 

there it is! their definition of democracy.

Is Donald Trump the American Boris Yeltsin?

 

 

“Trump may see himself as an American Putin,” quoth Cobb, “but Putin likely sees Trump as an American Boris Yeltsin —
floundering in the complexities that surround him.”

 

 

“Dear Americans! I have made a decision. I am leaving early, so that the US can enter a new millennium of politicians with new, smart, strong, energetic people (who have agreed not to prosecute me.) I have signed a decree placing the duties of president on Vladimir Vladomirovich Putin. Farewell, and be happy.”

 

And here’s the tweak: Yeltsin’s exit line to Russians was an emotional “You deserve it.” Trump’s farewell to Americans? “You deserve everything you got.”

Just between you and me, Wally Cox really was something else altogether different from his Showbiz persona, according to his best friend Marlon Brando.


So then Trump was less a badass than Wally Cox.

Yes, and as I've mentioned before, with any luck and justice, he may soon be "Badass of Cell Block 3"! Although I can't see him getting to be Trustee....who would trust the crook!?!?

Looks like Wally was more of a tree hugger.   

And green before his time. Now, I suppose it all matters whether

Marlon tied him face to the tree or face away from the tree.


Curse Sir Walter Raleigh, he was such a stupid get.

I've heard that too, and I guess it's true. But even if he wasn't

a nerdy type, that doesn't necessarily mean he was a badass.

 

"Marlon was kind of a rough little boy," she said. "He tied Wally to a 

tree one afternoon  and then left him. I'm surprised they remained friends,

but they did." :)

Wally was one cool cat.     Fine actor also;  I always looked forward to a T.V. show when I saw that Wally was a guest star.

"The Little Boy President"

" When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I'm basically the same. "-- Donald Trump


Trouble is that the first grader is now President of the United States, and his temperament is on display for the world to see.

Unpredictable, impulsive and immature, Trump acts in a way that would be expected of a 6 year-old boy,

But is terrifying in a man whose moods dictate decisions carried out by adults on behalf of the most powerful nation in the world..."

Another difference is that Nixon had been in power almost 5 years; with Trump it's barely been 5 months.
 



 



President Trump shares the same low approval rating as Nixon in '73.
The difference? Trump doesn't have any party support as back up.

From the Washington Post ....

 

 

The Fix •  Analysis The prevailing view of Trump has only worsened: He’s ‘unpresidential’ A new poll shows that 70 percent say he's unpresidential; only 24 percent say he's acted in a way that's “fitting and proper." By Aaron Blake  •  Read more »

 

 

DonaldTrumpStraitjacket.jpg

 

"Unpresidential? Unpresidential? I'll tell you what's unpresidential. Having me in this strait jacket, that's what's unpresidential. So why don't you guys just loosen those straps? What'd ya mean "Only if you promise to stay off your Twitter account?" How do you expect me to communicate? I mean, I don't have press conferences. Gotta get the word out somehow. I just do it at two in the morning a lot after watching some of that FAKE, oh so FAKE, news all day long. In fact, I'm the most presidential President you ever saw! Just ask Don Junior. Better check to make sure he's available first, though. He might be in the middle of a meeting on opposition research with some of our foreign friends."
