Trump gave a pep rally speech at the NRA today.  He relived the glory days of the campaign win yet again.  Booooring.  And he told everyone that we are living in "horrible times."

Thanks orange-top.  That's just the way I want to use up my days on this planet - contemplating how horrible everything is.  You are doing your best to make it so.  I've never ever experienced the feeling of so much turmoil on a daily basis.  Trump is making everyone on this planet live his miserable life.

 

It seems to be a powerful new strain of conservatism: "Everything sucks and they're all out to get me".

I suppose now that Trump had lunch with KID ROCK and TED NUGENT we're supposed to think he's COOL now?  :rolleyes:

Whatever happened to America should not be the policeman of the world?  When Trump made that statement things were exactly the same as they are now.   Oh, wait a second.  His poll numbers have dropped significantly since then.

Next Trump will be saying that he can't be impeached because he is the President of the United States--

Trump was hilarious on reality TV, but in reality in the Oval Office, he's not so funny.

I think he is very funny. :)

As I have said more than once in this forum that if I was defending someone accused of violence against a Trump protestor at one of Trump's own rallies I would say that my client was only following orders.  That he was incited to violence by the man at the podium, one Donald J. Trump.  This may not be right but that would be my defence.

Trump is trying to claim immunity now that he is President as he too is named in several law suits but it has not worked.

This at the Washington Post ...

https://www.washingt...st-draw5&wpmm=1

 

Trump says he can’t be sued for violence at his rallies because he won the election

 

This is from one of Trump's co-defendants.  A man accused of hitting a protestor ...

And he accepted as true her claims that Trump's speech “was calculated to incite violence” against the protesters.

[‘Get ’em out!’ Racial tensions explode at Donald Trump’s rallies.

“Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump and/or the Trump Campaign repeatedly urged people attending Trump political rallies to remove individuals who were voicing opposition,” reads Bamberger's filing, which asks that Trump be forced to pay his damages, if he's found liable.

Why do the identities of these visitors have to be kept concealed?

Would we be shocked if we found out that infamous people like white nationalist David Duke and/or white nationalist Richard Spencer were visiting fellow white nationalist Steve Bannon in the White House?

Whether they were or not, we may never know--when you have something to hide in the White House, the people will demand to know what you're hiding.

Anytime he has a relatively good week (for him), he blows his momentum by coming up with something like this.

"The American Civil Liberties Union today blasted the Trump Administration’s decision to not publish the White House visitor logs as President Obama regularly did, charging that, “The only reasonable conclusion is to believe the Trump administration has many things it is trying to hide.”





In a statement issued from its Washington, D.C. office, ACLU Political Director Faiz Shakir wrote that, “Elected officials work for the people and we deserve to see government business conducted in transparent daylight. This ‘Good Friday’ news dump is simply the latest in a series of efforts by President Trump to avoid public accountability, and it’s not the way to improve the people’s declining trust in this administration.”

So is everyone feeling that the world is a much safer place now that Trump is in office?  And try not to think of just your skin in B F nowheresville.

The struggle to give a soul to a soulless presidency

https://www.washingt...st-draw5&wpmm=1

 

a small portion of a good article ...

On Syria, Trump’s message has gone from mixed to pureed. Apparently, engagement in Syria is both a stupid move and a moral necessity. On foreign policy, Trump is ideologically rootless. He seems to have no considered views about the world, just confidence about his own abilities as a leader. And this places an unsettling randomness at the heart of America’s global role. 

This inconsistency is the most consistent theme of Trump’s young presidency. During the campaign, he opposed entitlement reform, yet his health-care bill contained the most fundamental entitlement reform — moving federal Medicaid spending from an open-ended match for state spending to a capped amount per person — that Congress has recently considered. He campaigned as a tribune for the working class, yet his economic approach seems heavily tilted toward the interests of the wealthy.

This has been attacked as lying. It also indicates a complete unfamiliarity with the issues and debates at the heart of American politics. He never encountered these matters during previous government service (which he did none of). He was not forced to explain his views during primary or general election debates (a few lines from the stump speech more than sufficed). Trump was not hiding an inner sophistication. His ignorance was presented as part of an anti-establishment package — as contempt for the quibbles of smaller men.

True, but you expect that of lemmings, not humans.

The inability to empathize with others is the heart of the problem in the Untied States.

 

Watch this frasier.

The videos of seniors in Trump rural areas who are willingly losing their little government sponsored community centres, and health care, etc,  in lieu of a wall or more military spending is very sad.

Have you seen any of these seniors interviewed about that?

I saw that. Just mind boggling! But gives you some insight into the minds of his followers. Can see that here too.
