http://www.trumpdonald.org/ hours of fun!

So I grew up in Queens County, one of the five boroughs of NYC. Queens has given birth to the likes of The Ramones, Run-D.M.C., Frank Profera...and The Donald. When I was a kid, I played touch footbal

The Donald believes he can hire this guy next, in the rotating staff.

(or at least his cryogenic disembodied  head)

Looping back to the forums, it appears that Kamala is Sanskrit for "Lotus".   President Lotus in our future?  Lighter and simpler politician?

Yup, but be honest now. What did he actually achieve? What change did he really make? What lasting legacy has he left?  Great guy. Decent man. Good President. But truly effective? Hmmm.

Obviously better than Trump in all ways. But how will history recall his legacy?

FDR was the only 3 term  president before it was limited to 2 terms. Of course like Putin, Trump would like to make himself permanent.I'd like to see an amendment outlawing bozos or reality TV personalities from running. (absolutely no qualifications or practical experience on Trumps part)

And in reality how does that make him any different than most of the presidential candidates for the last 30 years?  There have been many who were not qualified for the role (and actually, what makes a good qualification criteria for the "leader of the free world"?) and the best "grew" into the role, and the worst, didn't get re-elected for the 2nd term.

I think a lot of double standards get shown in these discussions and it is driven largely by prejudice, even if it is in the subconscious.  

Don't get me wrong. I don't think Trump has been a good President overall. However, if you think back a few years ago his message was simple and clear and he meant it - My first priority as President will be to Americans - America for the Americans - was essentially his mantra. He's gone about it like a crazed bull in a China shop, but the sentiment of his "fix the problems at home and keep the investment in America" approach still has many many followers in the old, decimated, industrial blue collar areas of the good ol' USofA.

Rather than filling his cabinet with well qualified people to consult, Trump seemed to put family and friends first and shuns expert advice input. Essentially all the eggs are in the one Trump basket. He has not learned on the job because he only listens to himself. A good president should seek out best qualified candidates in the respective area of expertise. They all seem to have no qualifications. 

The blind not listening to the blind. Anyone was a better president than Trump.

Hilary may have been a better groomed candidate but not sure the USA would be in a better position for having her!  She may have not been as "subtle as Trump" about it but Hilary struck me as a woman on a mission with a big open mouth and closed ears!  

Again, don't confuse my posts with those of a rabid Trump fan. I can see why he won. His messaging was strong and resonated. Early on you could argue he deliberately shunned career politicians and advisors in his circle to shake the tree. Unfortunately at some point around the end of the first year he was shaking the tree so hard it seemed like he had either rattle frazzled his brain or it clean fell out through his ears. And that's the Trump we have now!

I am certainly no Hillary fan, but from the beginning Trump was in it for himself. Traditionally past Presidents knew how government worked having previously been a member of the Senate, House, Governor, etc.  He has no feel the responsibilities and sensitivity of international situations. He often flips his opinion several times (to try to appease the crowd he's playing to at the time, be it racists or whomever) rather than measure 3 times and cut once. A real loose cannon. Lie, counter-lie and then lie again.

He's made a worse swamp than existed previously. He won't listen to Fauci, but rather push his own snake oil cure for Covid (his fiends likely have stock)

He's not a doctor, has no military experience (evaded draft) and he doesn't make money the traditional way, but through bankruptcies (which we the taxpayers pay for). A legend in his own mind. He still is fighting disclosing his previous tax returns, unlike all the other candidates. (it will expose the crook he is) Don't forget he was impeached, just wasn't removed from office because his party is the senate majority.

Bill Clinton was impeached and not removed too if I recall correctly due to a different woman with a wide open mouth. He lied about it of course!

Just playing with you but don't throw stones that others have tarred too to make it sound like Trump was / is unique in his behaviours.

Didn't Nixon lie over Watergate? Bush over WMDs that cost a lot of people their lives?

Trump is an appalling Statesman for sure. But not the first President to be impeached. Not the first to be found lying. Not the first to feather his nest etc....

He's much worse but only guilty of what many before him have done surely?

In my view these days people only choose to go into Politics for themselves. Clinton and Obama's financial net worth post Presidency is significantly enhanced from the pre state is it not? Ask not what your country can do for you, but what leading your country can do for your bank balance!

We've got the same here with Blair, Cameron et al.

Unfortunately, most of the Donors and Lobbyists he's put in charge of our country are never going to be held to account for their actions, and we'll see them again in the coming years.

I don't envy Mr. Biden should he win, as he will face the same well-tuned obstructionist opposition Obama could not overcome, and will have to undo a lot of damage with a GOP-stripped revenue base further damaged by the Covid economy.  It would take tremendous effort and a good bit of luck just to get halfway back to normal.  

We're no longer even #1 in new Covid cases,  India has pushed us aside and may soon overtake us in total cases.  (muted cries of America first!,USA! USA!,

A fine example right here how "soundbites" (which unfortunately seems to be how our whole news system now works as opposed to proper, investigative journalism" can easily be used to push a perception. On reading the below you'd first think that Trump was lauding the far right/neo Nazi's as "fine people", but then further down you find out that he actually "dismissed them" directly.  I just find interesting how the "politics" of today works and how twitter (I hate that fcuking system) has done a lot to actually kill proper freedom of speech as it is now all about soundbites over true substance.

 

Claim 3: President Trump said there were "very fine people on both sides", when asked about a far-right rally in 2017.

Mr Biden said one of his goals would be to "wipe out the stain of racism" and he recalled the far-right protests in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017 which led to violent clashes and left one counter-protester dead.

He said: "Remember what the President said when asked, he said there were, quote, very fine people on both sides".

Mr Biden said that after this moment "I knew I had to run" for president.

According to a transcript of a press conference on 15 August, President Trump did say - when asked about the presence of neo-Nazis at the rally - "you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides."

During the same press conference, Mr Trump went on to say "I'm not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists, because they should be condemned totally."

Is there an unbiased news source left that doesn’t have an agenda? I grew up believing that the BBC was such a source, but clearly at some point that changed.

Any BBC headline about Trump is negative and derogatory, while any headline about Biden is positive and upbeat, much the same as their Brexit reporting.

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!
