He's a moron and a loser, but he's also a master entertainer. :)

I think the main thing Trump has accomplished in his presidency so far is how often people will say the same things about him. I don't even read about him anymore because it's the same stuff. Why put yourself through depressing nonsense when you don't have to? I'm already depressed enough.

This American Life compares the Trump phenomenon to the downfall of Cantor and the campaigns of Pat Buchanan.

Plus most the outrage is on the internet generating money through corporations with clickbait but what can you do

George Will [yes, George Will(!)]:

George Will On Last Word: Trump Has 'Dangerous Disability'

The original article from Will - a guy who is soooo excessively conservative and arrogant most of the time.
Many people are amazed that he actually wrote this piece (and that he sat down with Lawrence O'Donnel :D).

When I read this first for a moment I thought it said "Kylie breaks down Trumpcare"! :laughing: Mind you, that might make just as much sense...

Ant: really?

x2 for both of these. Honestly, when the subject at hand seems to be Trump ****ing over the American people for their health cover, it seems totally disingenuous, defensive and to be honest a little insulting to be grinning about whether or not Obama was spying on him. :rolleyes: Priorities?

Just the sort of person you want in charge of the Free World (TM), right? :rolleyes:

1. Except complaining about what Trump is attempting to do with health care at this point is pointless and the equivalent of beating a dead horse. Either the Senate will get it amended enough to where it will be more comprehensive (not that the ACA is that good either at the present moment: they'd be better off trying to fix what we already have probably) or they'll just reject it at the last minute. Rand Paul's paranoia about Obama is at least moderately funny in comparison.

2. Trump's unpredictability on the world stage has proven to be, at least to me, the one thing about him that's compelling. Enemy nations can't wrap their heads around him so when you see stuff like China putting pressure on North Korea as a "consequence" of Trump's words and actions you realize there might be something to that old "4D chess" meme after all. Very different from past administrations but maybe not bad in the long run.

Sorry, I don't want a leader of the free world who baffles with
bullshit and incompetence - especially one that doesn't realize
that he's doing this.
Dangerous? - yes.
"Compelling"? - not wanted.

Honestly, this criticism easily applies to the last few administrations too. They just had better mouthpieces and didn't antagonize the media.
