President* Trump

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

    No loss to me, if that is typical of his/her contributions. If s/he disagrees with the idea of "skiping" school as a means of protest against climate change inaction, fine, but there are ways to disagree without a dismissive and derisive "pathetic" with no further commentary.

      That would be because after causing so many problems, Reagan left office and died. And now there's Trump. So try to answer two simple questions:
      Do you agree with Trump's actions and policies?

      Start with a yes or no. Then feel free to say which and/or why.

      Do you think Trump (a) creates more problems than he solves; or (b) solves more problems than he creates.

      Start with "a" or "b" - discuss if you like.

      I would like to add, do you think it is okay for trump to say things that he knows to be false

      Apparently, you didn’t get the point of the meme. That’s understandable, Schumer & Pelosi wouldn’t get it either.

      The 10K is the total of known and caught lies. Realistically, Trump probably didn't know the difference on at least a fourth of them.

        Yep, there have to be more. Plus, it was last updated April 27, 2019. That's 2 years at a normal liar's pace.

        Realistically, Trump probably didn't know the difference on at least a fourth of them.
        :lol: True. However, just like the ammosexual who has multiple unlocked up guns stolen over time, at some point his negligence makes him just as culpable for the result.

        I think giving him credit for being stupid, ignorant, and uninformed 25% of the time instead of being 100% a blatant liar may be the kindest thing I've ever said about Trump.

        trump administration halts research involving fetal tissue.....I figure this ties into the Supreme Court decision the other day affirming the requirement that aborted fetuses be buried or cremated, thus no source for the research. Looks like they didn't waste time on this; probably a few calls from Falwell and Franklin Graham did the trick.

        Trump is abusing his emergency powers. Congress must rein him in.

        Petition to Congress:

        "Amend the National Emergencies Act to scale back the emergency powers of the presidency and create strong protections against authoritarian overreach."

        Co-Author for Trump's Memoir The Art of the Deal Says It Should Be ‘Recategorized’ as Fiction

        Since it’s unlikely The Art of the Deal will go out of print anytime soon, the book’s co-author Tony Schwartz has a different proposal.

        Shortly after The New York Times published a damning report detailing President Donald Trump‘s business and financial woes over the ‘80s and ‘90s, Schwartz — who has emerged as an extremely vocal critic of Trump — shared that he believed the 1987 memoir, which served as a testament to Trump’s business acumen, should be recategorized as a work of fiction.

        “Given the Times report on Trump’s staggering losses, I’d be fine if Random House simply took the book out of print. Or recategorized it as fiction,” he tweeted on Wednesday.

        During an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper that aired the same day, Schwartz went on to share that given the choice to re-title the book today, he would dub it The Sociopath — a claim he previously made during a 2016 interview with The New Yorker.

        “He has no conscience, he has no guilt. All he wants to do is make the case that he would like to be true,” Schwartz told Cooper. “He does not experience the world in a way that an ordinary human being would.”

        Asked whether he honestly believed Trump to be a sociopath, Schwartz took a pause before replying, “without any question.” ...

        From what I've read, it seems Michael Wolff's latest book should also be classified as fiction instead of what it purports to be. I read his first book but now I have a queer eye for it after him being caught in some stupid lies. He must be a money whore.
