So short answer is no. His zombie followers arent gonna change and his approval ratings are plummeting. I see no reason to care. Actually seems like a good thing that hes just making himself look worse. The more he screws up the less support he recieves, this fear of dictatorship seems pretty irrational.

Also lol at Obama.

Not really. That was a pretty "thin skinned" thing for Obama to do. There were a lot of people questioning Obama's birth certificate for awhile besides Trump during that same time period. He was just one high profile voice among other high profile voices all saying the same thing. So why specifically single Trump out, invite him to the 2011 correspondents' dinner and then belittle him for half an hour in front of millions of people when you are the POTUS and he's a private citizen? That's the kind of thing that you'd expect from someone LIKE Trump, not Obama.

Secondly, this incident is what incited Trump to seriously run for office in the first place, which is why we are in this situation today. So you could make the argument that Obama made a huge mistake by doing something that was fairly unpresidential by his standards. Rather than glass houses, I think "karma is a bitch" is a better summation of what has happened. :laughing:

Please. Firstly he spent about 2.5 minutes focusing on Trump. Secondly, Trump must have known fully well what he'd be walking into to. And lastly, Trump was chuckling and nodding in approval at Obama's jabs.

Please. It's a comedy roast. No person or subject is off limits. Obama was absolutely brilliant at them. The dude could easily have been a comedian. Check out the episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Obama and Seinfeld. Guy's a natural.

Your Trump apologist persona once again bubbles up to the surface.

TRUMP IS ALL OBAMA'S FAULT!!!!!!! :laughing::laughing::laughing:

Yeah, I don't see how you could be blaming Obama for everything Trump does.

I also don't see how people can twist Trump not doing this dinner into him being a fascist.

People are stupid.

Edit: Let me rephrase that, people are desperate.

^ Thanks, that's an interesting clip. He looked a lot younger then, but the way he stayed so professional under pressure is impressive.

Your edit makes this a pretty funny post Lucem!
I agree that not attending a dinner is hardly a fascist stance, though it does send a pretty negative message; it's like if you boss won't go to the office party at Christmas. Everybody thinks, "What's this guy's problem?"

My recommendation is don't worry about the dinner, but worry about this description of a nation...

Is that Dan Rather's description of Trump's America? No, it's Churchill's description of Germany during Hitler's rise to power.

That was just a restatement of what Chula said, idk the stats. To clarify, he has two kinds of followers. The zombies that will support him no matter what and other people who bought into his bull****. The former is a small minority and the latter accounts for the loss in support.

Nope. It wasn't just 2.5 minutes (plus Seth Meyers got up on stage also) and no, he didn't know what he was walking into. Knowing Trump's personality, be honest here: do you really think he took it well? You guys talk about how thin skinned he is all the time. Was there some magical time where Trump was not thin skinned?

Harhar. Yeah it was funny, and Obama is a funny / charming dude. But you wake up every day and now the guy who wanted revenge for public humiliation is now your President. Asking you to use your brain for critical thinking doesn't make me a Trump apologist. I don't like the guy and I voted for Obama....but I think what he did in retrospect was unbelievably stupid. He had a prominent hand in creating the environment that gave Trump the motivation to run and the opportunity to win, and that's a fact. Again: you are the one with an inconsistent view on Trump. Do I need to lecture you on how his personality works, or are you savvy enough to connect the dots yourself?

I've seen plenty of editorials on both sides of this fence, but it should be obvious that I'm correct if everything we've seen about Trump's personality has always been what it is.
