I like it. It’s old-timey.
I don’t think you’ll see a sudden overnight drop. Like a footy team that’s hitting the skids due to a poor manager, it’ll be a slow decay of disillusionment.
It feels like he’s been president for years already. It’s easy to forget that it’s not even been a month.
This very evening I had a conversation with someone who said ‘a few months ago when he was sworn in…’ and then caught herself.
I don’t think anyone really wants this anymore.
He’s already had enough political cock-ups, scandals and corruption for a full-term, for sure.
There were a lot of doozies but I’m surprised no one has mentioned this particular moment of what-the-fuckery:
"TRUMP: I’m not going to tell you anything about what response I do. I don’t talk about military response. I don’t say I’m going into Mosul in four months. ‘We are going to attack Mosul in four months.’ Then three months later, ‘We are going to attack Mosul in one month.’ ‘Next week, we are going to attack Mosul.’
In the meantime, Mosul is very, very difficult. Do you know why? Because I don’t talk about military, and I don’t talk about certain other things, you’re going to be surprised to hear that. And by the way, my whole campaign, I’d say that. So I don’t have to tell you. I don’t want to be one of these guys that say, ‘Yes, here’s what we’re going to do.’ I don’t have to do that. I don’t have to tell you what I’m going to do in North Korea."
Um. You kind of do need to tell people that you’re planning on aggressively invading a sovereign nation, even if you only tell Congress. That’s sort of how these things work…
Speaking of train wrecks; his exploding ego and hot air are messing with our atmosphere.
For the past 5 days the temperature has bounced btwn. the low 30’s and mid 60’s with both snow and open window weather.
The wind has also ranged from subtle to 45MPH.
“People tell me that I’m going to have the best tribunal at the Hague. That it’ll really be ‘class A.’ It’ll be yuuge.”
Hopefully that’s just him covering for the fact that he doesn’t have a response. Hopefully.
I actually don’t expect his hardcore supporters to ever leave him, I just want all the middle-of-the road people to abandon him. I want a wake-up call to everyone who voted Trump because they thought he was the lesser of two evils.
You left out the bizarre bit of back and forth just before, where he asks the visibly Jewish (yarmukle-wearing) reporter, asking him about who he’s related to. Flat out jew-baiting, not even thinly veiled. God forbid that he should pass up any opportunity to be a complete bigot.
And then of course the bit where he asks a black female reporter to set up a meeting with the Congressional Black Caucus for him, because all those people know each other, amirite? And since she’s a black woman naturally it’s her job to act as his secretary. I guess we should be grateful he didn’t ask her to being him coffee.
Honestly, it’s getting to the point where I’d kind of prefer him to be tried at the Hague than impeached.
Do you think he would ever stop moaning about it if he were impeached? We’d never hear the end of it. At least with the Hague option we’d have a couple of days of complaining about ‘corrupt judges’ and then snap; we’d never have to listen to his incoherent rambling again…
Jesus, he’s like an orange Idi Amin or Gaddafi.
American BBers, let us know when you need a coalition of the willing to come save you ha just kidding you’re all fucked
It sure looks like the staff writers at SNL have their work cut out for them in creating a parody of this.
I am torn between encouraging such a spoof, and reeling against that thought.
(The parody may be palatable as long as it ends with the the VP and cabinet declaring the POTUS unfit for the job and men in white bundling him up and taking him to the Walter Reed Psychiatric unit for further evaluation and treatment.)
Just repeat it verbatim.
I was having a late breakfast at a restaurant when the press conference came on today. A few of us were half watching it. I’m guessing there were a few Trump voters/supporters in the restaurant because it was mostly older, working class white people there, and this is Missouri. Anyway, when he said his administration was running like a fine tuned machine, I started laughing out loud, as did several other customers. And I’m pretty sure at least one of them was a Trump supporter. I mean, I don’t care who you voted for, that’s a pretty undeniably bullshit statement.
