What is it when the presidents and CEOs of corporations are more presidential than the President of the United States?

I try to avoid commenting this thread, because he's not MY president, but damn... what an absolute turd of a human being.

He's not your president, Petter, but his actions have ramifications for world relations. I mean, who'd want to do a trade deal with a nutball like that?

Who'd want a dignified and private conversation when there's a chance he'll tweet about it later on?

Not too surprising, Brian.  However, I doubt he affected approximately 175,000 votes.  (Trump won by 173,315).

This Phoenix appearance of Trump's is fucking awful (it's live on CNN now).

THIS is the President of the United States?  What an embarrassing joke.

That speech in Phoenix was a hot mess. Trump didn't mention the military members who died on USS McCain, but he has deemed his Charlottesville comments "perfect."  Continued his attack on the mainstream media. He hinted at pardoning that horrible, CONVICTED Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Trump is so unstable, and the people who support him are clueless. 

It just keeps getting worse. So much worse.

-C!

The lowlife is a pathetic loser who knows only how to throw adjectives around.

As for perfect, he may want to examine his syntax and spelling. We all saw the misspelling of "heal" before he deleted that tweet...

While watching this and with all of the other bone headed things he has said,,  I couldn't help thinking that this MF will probably have a presidential library. 

Let that sink in for a moment......

You know, he has a place where folks go to remind them of the "great things" he accomplished while in office.

Is it a legal requirement for ex-presidents to have a library? Does everyone have one?

Perhaps a book by the Spelling Bee might be suited for his library.

I know people are responsible for their viewpoints, but would they have been as open about this before President Slimeball started condoning certain acts and spouting bigotry?

It won't be a presidential library quite so much as a fortune cookie collection. You can't tell what's going to come out of the fortune cookie? Rather sounds like Trump himself, no? Except you don't have the dubious pleasure of enjoying the fortune cookie after the fact...

Mr. Byrne, that's a wonderful idea! Unfortunately, it would have to be pretty general... or we would have to have a chart with small words and plenty of pictures for a lot of voters who don't understand how government works, or what exactly they're paying for.

Once again, Trump is attempting to alter reality with a tweet. The Tweeter-in-Chief remains an embarrassment to America...  lashing out at McConnell, Ryan, Clapper, media...  It really seems like he is daring them (GOP leadership) to do something and they are "cowering in a corner".

This has been so bizarre to watch over the months. The use of social media to try and embarrass his own party members into action, just so unconventional..

Trump would be more suited as president of TMZ than the USA.

It's a shame the following can't happen: US funds build the wall, but ONLY Trump voters pay for it, maybe even via a tax increase. Everyone who didn't vote for Trump gets to be exempted from any funding towards the wall. 

I wish it could happen.

Robbie, your plan reminds me of something I said years ago, that the income tax form should have some kind of pie chart on it, on which we could indicate where and how much for we paid, dividing up the total we owed.

Trump pardons Sheriff Joe Arpaio. One racist helps another.  Shocker.

How cowardly to do it on a night when much of the nation is concerned about a hurricane hitting Texas. Their attention is turned elsewhere.  Tell me THAT'S not calculated.

Politics in a Jugular Vein.

Trump's problem - well, one of 'em - is that he seems to think that the American public can only focus on one issue at a time. He is a terrible magician who brings up something - "false" news, fake equivalents, complaints about his treatment - with the belief that the real issues will go overlooked.

Of course, there are a lot of Americans who can keep TWO ideas in their heads at any given time. And those who are on Trump's trail won't be distracted until they're actually removed (Mr. Mueller, and Mr. Comey during his own time).

The jerk is a coward, bully, cad, and thief. He pulls childish tantrums and infantile behavior, believing that we will fall for it. He may be right... he DID get elected. But thank heavens, it seems that his protective guard of sycophants seems to be deteriorating. I cannot wait to celebrate his departure.

Well, Matt, I guess now I can say it: he's a piece of shit. I don't like insulting people. But he is. 

I hope Eric is right about his departure. I don't care that he may spin it positively if he quits. I hope he does. Let him have his delusions. I can live with that - once he quits. And his remaining sycophants can go and buy whatever book he writes when he decides to pen memoirs about how unfairly he's been treated.

I loathe him.

Trump's pardon of Arpaio shows gross contempt for the rule of law. 

Regardless, continued silence and support by GOP leaders.

Deplorable.
