The President Donald Trump Thread - page 59

I thought I would create a thread where we can talk about what he's currently up to. No particular topic but one that's ongoing with what he's doing and saying. I'll start with this speech on... Read More

    I just wish The Donald could expand his range of adjectives. He sounds like a elementary-school kid with the name-calling, put-downs and bragging, frequently invented from thin air rather than based in reality.
    And I guess since "I AM THE GREATEST!" was conscripted years ago by Muhammad Ali, Trump's going to have to come up with something catchier for himself...or has he already done so and I have managed to keep my head underground, thus missing it?

    Muhammad Ali actually was "the greatest, Trump is just a liar.
    Wait,perhaps Trump is the greatest liar.
    The biggest.
    The best liar in the country, maybe the world.
    Believe me.

    Honestly, Trump is not a great liar but he is a consummate and consistent liar.

    Agree completely, Baloney. He's NOT a great liar. In fact, he's as incompetent at lying, as his is at everything else. But he is consistent with the lies, and he is prolific with the lies.

    Isn't it sad that BEST thing you can say about #45 is that he is a prolific liar?

    Lil Nel - he is good at making money. Albeit off of others, at their risk, and unknown to us about his taxes. And he doesn't seem to lose money.

    Of course, how would we ever know?

    One of the things that bothers me about Obama-bashing and anti-illegal immigrant status is that people don't seem to understand that the last 20 years things have gotten a lot harder for illegal immigrants, and Obama deported more illegal immigrants than any other president. Yet, they are considered such a threat we have to spend billions on a wall. sigh....

    Oh and Trump lies.

    There are various spots online that have posted the entire transcript of the interview, and it is bizarre. He sounds like he's stoned (or incredibly stupid ...)

    Then, there's this:

    Trump's mystical grasp of time is straining the limits of grammar.

    He gets crazier everyday, and is more of an embarrassment every day.

    I think calling Trump crazy is an insult to crazy people.

    I think he is demented, and a sociopath.

    One of my rare comments re DJT - I just don't understand his obamaphobia.

    I guess there is no reasoning.

    Oh well. 100 days and counting. That leaves 1360 to go.

    "In yesterday’s interview with the Associated Press, Trump bragged that he helped the CBS Sunday morning political talk show “Face the Nation” score 5.2 million viewers, higher than its ratings just after 9/11. “It's the highest for 'Face the Nation' or as I call it, 'Deface the Nation,' since the World Trade Center came down,” he boasted."

    Such narcissism is almost pathological with him. There's nothing humble about him whatsoever. People aren't tuning in because they like him, or actually care about what he thinks or says, people are tuning in to see what kind of fool he's going to make of himself today.

    Our President. The "leader of the free world". Shaking my head.

    I forget, was it three times that he had to declare bankruptcy, or four? I think he knows how to lose money, and other people's money, very well. I think personally that the main reason he doesn't want his tax returns scrutinized is because we'd all know he earns A LOT LESS than what he claims, that his expenses are so great that he doesn't have even close to what he claims to have at his disposal. He has claimed the STAR tax exemption in New York for several (many?) years. That exemption can only be claimed by those whose income falls below the half-million mark. To be the bigwig he claims he'd have to earn a lot more than that to be considered a Player.

    So which is true, that he rightfully deserves the STAR tax exemption because his income is low enough that it allows that tax break, or is he getting tax breaks he is not entitled to because he earns millions each year (as he claims)? His daughter and her hubby have an annual income of somewhere around 8 million if I remember right. Surely he isn't going to want it known that he makes millions LESS than them, if that's the case.

    Anyone catch trump's speech, alongside the Italian Prime Minister? The one in which he lauded praise on the Italians for everything from having beautiful cities to beautiful singers, and named Pavarotti. That sounds good, right? Except that instead of sticking to the damned speech that was written for him, he ad-libbed "Pavarotti, a friend of mine, a great friend of mine". Problem was that not only was the famed tenor NOT a "great friend", Pavarotti was known to detest him while he was ALIVE.

    Pavarotti died ten years ago. His family requested that Trump stop using his music on the campaign trail (without permission) because of trump's huge (YUGE!!) difference on views of humanity from Pavarotti's. They wanted no connection.

    Another guy who is deceased that Trump didn't know was gone. Only this time he claimed a great friendship with the deceased. If he had only stuck to the speech lol!
