This popped up in my Twitter feed. I am so tempted to buy the book but I am unsure if it will just play to my confirmation bias. 

I mean, I know Trump is a moron. He proved that years ago talking about windmills in Scotland, apparently he knows more about them than anyone else in the world.

My sentiments as well.  I don't need to read a book to understand that Trump is a dangerously corrupt and dishonest liar and his lying corruption are the basis of what Russia is using to manipulate him.  It is even more obvious that the GOP, at this time, is not forwarding goals which benefit We the People or the country as a whole. They are forwarding goals which benefit Trump, his family and donors, and the American plutocracy. They have long used propaganda on right wing radio and Fox to convince poor white social conservatives to vote for kleptocrats...Trump took control of the cult and now they do what HE says and their goals are now whatever Trump wants or says. 

The book would most definitely confirm my worst beliefs about Trump and that's not necessary.

Again, I'm baffled by the idea that Trump doesn't seem to care that he's being fact checked.

Some like the claim that farmers were crying at a signing event seem so unnecessary.  Others like his claim of having the best economy in history have been repeatedly disclaimed but yet he repeats them as if saying it enough will make it true.  Other things that counter his claims about the Impeachment he can easily dismiss as fake news and a witch hunt. 

After three years, I'm still stunned this man is the President. Of. The. United. States. and getting such crazy support.

And then there's this. . . . 

Trump's Stunning Tirade Against Our Generals

(Again, how can anyone CONTINUE to support this dangerous fool?!?)

From today's WaPo:

President Trump Made 16,241 False Or Misleading Claims During His First Three Years

The real question Ted, is WHY does ANYBODY support a proven, habitual liar?

What is that individual gaining, by supporting a proven, habitual liar?

Unless they are simply amoral themselves, they must stand to gain something by supporting Trump.

If you personally know any Trumpsters, ask them what they get out of standing by a habitual liar.

I know.

Whenever I hear Trump addressed as POTUS by the media, the hair on the back of my neck stands up.

It absolutely shames me to live in a country where such an amoral moron could rise so high.

But let's flip this, shall we?

Anybody here think if the Black son of wealth and privilege, proved to be such an amoral moron, they would occupy the WH?

Trump has been allowed to flourish, in large part because of White Privilege.

I haven't asked lately as one has quit where I work and the other one isn't someone I care to engage politics with anymore.  We just talk work and music.  

But the short answer I've gotten is that he doesn't lie, he "tells it like it is" and the media is against him.  When dug a little deeper it comes down to Trump doing his agenda....the white privileged one...even though he takes as was posted here a while ago "some liberties with the truth"

How can anybody say with a straight face that Trump doesn''t lie?

The lies are so easy to prove, as you have pointed out.

So people are happy living in denial or a state of willful ignorance, so long as they get an extra $75 biweekly, paid for by their children and grandchildren.

And there is Trump today, in Davos, whinning like a toddler that Greta Thunberg beat HIM for Time Person Of The Year.

Do yourself a favor, Donald John Trump: Shut the pie hole!

For the entirety of Donald Trump's presidency, I have gone through the transcript of a good number of the speeches and interviews he has given. In doing that, one thing has become crystal clear to me: He is one of the least articulate -- if not the least articulate -- politicians ever to make it onto the national stage.

 
 
 
That fact occurred to me this week when I was going through Trump's interview with CNBC's Joe Kernen while in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum. Here's the exchange:
KERNEN: Tesla's now worth more than GM and Ford. Do you have comments on Elon Musk?
TRUMP: Well -- you have to give him credit. I spoke to him very recently, and he's also doing the rockets. He likes rockets. And -- he does good at rockets too, by the way. I never saw where the engines come down with no wings, no anything, and they're landing. I said I've never seen that before. And I was worried about him, because he's one of our great geniuses, and we have to protect our genius. You know, we have to protect Thomas Edison and we have to protect all of these people that -- came up with originally the light bulb and -- the wheel and all of these things. And he's one of our very smart people and we want to-- we want to cherish those people.
 
Surreal, truly surreal.

I have no idea why my post above was formatted like that. I'll try again.

The following is just surreal, truly surreal.

It's painfully obvious why Trump wants all transcripts from military school to college hidden.

There simply isn't much brain power.

There never has been.

He is only concerned with his own wants and needs, like a child.

The id is always firmly in control.

When you lack the brain power to get what you want on your own, you are forced to incorporate criminals to help do your bidding.

Hence, Impeached POTUS, DJT.

I've often wondered if he spent even one day in class at Penn. I can totally imagine his father paying someone to get his degree for him. That is speculation of course, but he seems neither well educated nor naturally intelligent.

I believe his father probably paid someone to take tests and write papers for him.

We know his father bribed his way into college.

Agree.

There is no natural intelligence of any kind; no emotional, innate or social.

Trump is simply an id driven pin head.
