By all the known and forgotten deities of history, would that ignorance of the words to the National Anthem be the most egregious offense 45 commits against the United States!

Spoiler: It isn't.

The only thing harder to comprehend for me than the fact that this egotistic, unpopular, self-involved and self-aggrandizing, ignorant, contemptuous and contemptible person is president is that he STILL has support; he has STILL bamboozled voters who think he's give a shit for them (Spoiler: he doesn't); that some people who are in inhuman conditions think that Donald J., the hero of the pee-pul will swoop in to save them; and that he could care less about them. His approval, his praise, and his support of his fellow rich (and richer) associates are what matter to him.

And he seems to clutch at EVERY SINGLE OPPORTUNITY to make himself seem worse. I mean, it isn't even that it's an occasional occurrence; he appears to search for such situations, and jumps in feet (and mouth) first!

My only slight optimism is that there seem to be enough people trending away from him that his decision to start a war In His Name might not be effective. But he's still seated with the powers of the President of the United States of America... and I dread every new day of his dictatorship-in-progress...

Ah, and now the true class of the President is brought to the fore once again...

He met with a group of senators at the White House about a compromise immigration deal. "Why do we want all these people from'shithole countries' coming here?" Trump told senators in the Oval Office.

I would be willing to bet large amounts at high odds that every single President knows that language. And I would double that amount that none of them has EVER used that language in any setting where the public might hear it, whether intended or not. 

Not the randiest presidents. Not the naval presidents (Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, or Bush the first - ref "mouth like a sailor"). Not the presidents involved in wars with other countries.

And then, those countries have been irrevocably insulted. Why would any citizen or politician of a country that the President of the United States has called a shithole EVER do business or maintain relationships with the U.S.?

It seems as if 45 is just BEGGING to be thrown out of office - either impeachment or 25th amendment. It is time and passed time to oblige him.

I have said this many times.

Why would a person (a world leader, for instance) want to do business with him? Or speak with him? Who would want to spend time with him?

He has utterly disgraced the Office of the President. And for a 'smart genius', it's not justifiable. 

Just leave, 45. Go and play golf, sell some land or whatever else you used to do. Please, I beg ya.

F-52 planes.

Were these the same planes used during the Bowling Green Massacre?

This latest outrage from Trump disparaging immigrants from what he calls "shithole" countries should be the LAST STRAW. Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell... heck, ANY member of the GOP congress should be condemned for letting this slide.

I think there's a whole haystack of last straws Trump will pull in the days and weeks ahead.

Ha, the Liar-In-Chief has convinced himself there's another reason he and isn't coming to the UK:


Folks, since 45 is incapable of telling you the truth, I will give it to you instead: us Brits had planned protests at his presence here. That is the reason Mr Thin-Skinned Egotistical President isn't visiting; his ego could not have withstood the fact that us Brits don't care for him. His ego could not have taken crowds in London (and elsewhere) protesting him.

But, hey, ignorance is bliss. If he wants to convince himself it's to do with the embassy building, and the costs associated with it during Obama's reign, then let him enjoy his fantasy. It must be nice to be able to lie to yourself constantly.

Pretty amusing, with the extraordinary amount of monies spent on
maintaining his family in NYC for the better part of a year.

I actually 100% believe that he has convinced himself.

We can all lie to ourselves in life. I lied to myself after a break-up (I convinced myself she would return). Eventually, reality kicks in. And that's about the only time in my life I have done that.

45 appears to be able to lie to himself constantly. I bet a lie detector would explode if he was subjected to one.

He's must be on a different level, Robbie... to lie to himself so convincingly, Trump must ignore the hundreds of replies on his Twitter. I've read them occasionally and the people are pretty BLUNT!

We can all lie to ourselves in life.... but if I were him (*gasp!*), this would drive me completely nuts.... OH, WAIT...

What are they supposed to do about it, given that he was merely putting into vocal form the same the contempt which fuels the policies they collectively support? 

Additionally, he has a) the loudest megaphone, b) the least compunction about using it, c) the unwavering support of the country's largest propaganda platform, d) publicly extinguished their most vociferous Republican critic and most importantly, e) has told them he'll pass anything they put on his desk. 

It's a transaction they've clearly learned to live with.

The "this is just how people talk" ("kitchen table talk") argument does not wash. The President of the United States is not "people". He is the most powerful human being on Earth, and he must, by definition, be held to the highest standard.

Many's the time I have been excoriated for what was deemed unacceptable language (usually out of context), and I am nothing. I am less than lint on the Nation's tapestry. If I must be held to a high standard, how much more should we demand from the "leader of the free world"?

I actually think he believes it, Bill.

He's probably spent almost his entire life surrounded by sycophants. Imagine what that would do to a person (I am NOT defending that). 

He can NEVER be wrong. Someone else is always at fault. The slightest criticism of him and his 'policies' is "fake news". 

Pity the man. He truly has convinced himself that that is the reason he is not visiting London. Deep down in his psyche, he knows it's because of the planned protests, but consciously, he has 100% convinced himself that is not the case.

We watched the first episode of Letterman’s new Netflix show last night. Obama was his guest. Now THAT is how a president behaves.

*********
Here's a (repeat) question: Did Trump use *campaign funds* to pay off women (some who were accusing him of sex crimes) a month before the 2016 presidential election?

Politicians usually have gotten in serious trouble for misusing funds in this way.

Anyone else salivating while we wait for Maher and Oliver to return to HBO with their next season?

Letterman's new show, "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction", was gold. I would love it if the late night talk shows would make Obama a regular guest so he was on television more and more.
