It does and I also laughed when I heard it. The W.H. was not a Palace of Intrigue and confusion under G. W. Bush and he was a pleasant funny man. Not so this one. He has not made me laugh even one time. A shit stirrer for a leader.

That reminds me of when Will Ferrell played George W Bush on SNL when he said "I am looking pretty sweet by comparison".

No he just let the economy go to crap. I will reserve judgement till he leaves office and I am not going to place much faith in what CNN tells me is going on at the white house

I don't know. How many wars has Trump started. How many thousands have died? How many countries got themselves drawn into terrible wars? How many Mid East countries has he destabilised (along with other countries)? He also won the election fair and square. He didn't rely on dodgy results from his brother's state or the influence of daddy. Safe the me the 'electoral college' nonsense. You all think it works perfectly when it gets you the result you want so you can't cry about it when it doesn't go your way.

Yes he's said a few mean and inappropriate things but they're words and usually misthought out Tweets.

Bush did nothing for the NK situation and neither did Obama. We now have Trump actually wanting to sit down and talk things over with Rocket Man. Can't say fairer than that.

Yes he offends some people but the widespread orangised hatred directed to him is simply too much and those same snowflakes who get offended that he said a mean word are quite happy to post awful things about him, incite violence toward him, promote the subversion of democracy and advocate for his death. The same people who cry 'rape culture' whenever someone wolf whistles or 'body shaming' are quite happy to insult him based on his looks or hair issues or call for his wife to be raped.

I would say it is simply collision of different mindset. Nowadays the way different people think with their minds are so radically different that when someone try to figure out what others are thinking they could come to the conclusion of other being insane. This applies to all side.

It's first and foremost the South Korean president and his wish to talk to the North Korean one that is the reason why Trump now "wants" to talk to the North Korean leader. When the South Korean president wanted to talk to the North, the USA was put in an aqward position and sidetracked. Now Trump feels he has to and no doubt hopes for a foreign policy victory to make him look better.

I doubt many citizens Iraq would share your opinion of GWB - what's the over/under on the number of civilians killed in a useless war before someone's considered "unpleasant" instead?

Well, ya got at least this part right.

Trump is vulgar and incompetent... but his policies haven't (yet) crashed the economy; nor gotten us involved in wars on fake premises, killed thousands upon thousands for that reason, which put us in nearly $4Trillion in debt in exchange for nothing in return.

The money that we've spent on Iraq could've wiped out the nation's total outstanding student debt, and still had enough left over to give every citizen a $7,600 tax refund. Or wiped out 45% of all outstanding mortgage debt. Or paid for 80% of the estimated price of a new nationwide power grid and distribution system.

Don't let that monster Bush rehabilitate himself on the back of Trump. He belongs nowhere other than the Hague.

That probably is a facade. No idea how the actor D.Trump appears in private life.
compare to the last actor bought for acting a politician : Reagan.

1 years vs 8 years.
My position was
that Trump would be more hurtful to the US
while Clinton would be more hurtful for the globe.

I haven't seen this dissproven yet.

It's certainly no facade.
We ~do~ know what he's like, because there's an extensive legal record to show us.

VULGARITY:
  • Multiple lawsuits for civil rights housing violations, nearly all of them ending in adjudicated losses to Trump (and his father) or settlements.
  • His own wife gives sworn testimony that he raped her in 1989, after yanking out of fist-full of her hair, for making fun of his.
  • Sued by multiple women for sexual harassment, many ending in settlements
  • Sued by black employees of his casino, for refusing to employ any of them to a job where money is counted

....and that's not even getting into events like his horrid treatment and statements involving the Central Park Five.


INCOMPETENCE:
  • This dude bankrupted a *C*A*S*I*N*O* for crying out loud, how incompetent can a business-person get?!
  • 5 other publicly-documented bankruptcies, so I guess I just answered my own question

....hence the word "yet."

The way it's going, this mofo may get us a mushroom cloud. :irked:

That is probably easier than most people think. There is a lot of competition in the market today. Within my lifetime there was no competition with Las Vegas, in the US. Then along came Atlantic City.... Then along game casino gaming in other states. Many Americans don't need to travel very far to go to a casino. If I feel like going to a Casino I can drive 15 miles to down town Detroit. If my parents, in St. Louis feel like it, they can be at a casino in 15 minutes. No need to go halfway across the country like they did several decades ago.

My thoughts entirely. As awful and embarrassing as Trump is, he hasn't gotten the country into nearly as much strife as Bush II did....yet.

As hopelessly incompetent as Trump is on Foreign Policy, his decisions have yet to result in ~180,000 deaths.

As short-sighted and fiscally irresponsible as Trump's "tax cuts" are, the projected additional debt they will result in is still about 400 billion less than the Iraq & Afghanistan wars.


There seem to be a bit of revisionist history going on as to how well Bush II's presidency went. Then again, we are only one year into Trump's presidency, so who knows how much disorder he has yet to cause.
