Trump has done more (right or wrong) in less than 2 years than most presidents do in 2 terms. I may actually be coming around.

Here’s an example of desperation from an “ally”.

      Least laws signed is amazing. I didn't know that. I'm probably going to vote for him now.

      - Most days vacationing: if true, deserved! I got a tax cut along with tons less regulations that are providing jobs for this country. Also a top-notch Supreme Court appointment (another on the way)
      - Most games of golf played: ditto. Right this way Mr. President, your golf cart awaits.
      - Least amount of bills signed: this is a negative? Oh, forgot, gov’t loving libs put this list together.
      - Lowest approval rating: um, higher than Obama’s at this time in presidency.
      - Most provable lies told: a little 10-word reminder: “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”, not to mention the lie of saving families thousands under Obamacare. The question is: what impact on society are these lies? Huge in this case.
      - Most cabinet resignations: if true, cut the new guy some slack. New to DC and its workings means testing the field for what actually works.
      - Most criminal indictments: only Michael Flynn? (lied to FBI). But all of this related to the Russia collusion fabrication that you libs are desperately trying to make stick.

      Oooh, wow. Looks like I struck a nerve! Lol.

      I didn’t work here before the election, genius. I could make more somewhere else, but in the meantime I’m doing everything I can to clean this shit up. I’m miserable, but I try to do work that’s important.

      But sure. Call me the money-chaser. Clearly not a handsome enough profit to address your glaring inferiority complex :) There are better ways of working thru that than going full-on dumbass racist.

      Yes, you should be extremely proud of yourself by building your fortune in the same way as noted genius Anthony Scaramucci, lol.

      And yes, if you are “coming around” to an incompetent, nepotistic compulsive liar who routinely denigrates black people as “low IQ,” defends white supremacists, tortures undocumented immigrants and systemically dehumanizes and disenfranchises migrants who’ve followed all of our laws, it’s because you’re an idiot and A RACIST.

      But sure. Blame my boss all you want. Long before I got there, the stock was climbing because of assholes like you. And of course you’re happy - republican presidents mean the racist finance bros get to profit either way. Play hard enough and he may hire you to “drain the swamp” with him! Or maybe even secretary of state! Just do everything daddy says...

      You’re idealism is so sincere and so cute. Can’t wait for the cathartic moment when you realize you’re working for C-Corp that has one motivation, making its shareholders money. Probably won’t realize that until the flood of cheap, highly skilled coders (gen z, educated emerging markets populace, etc) come online crushing your Spirit. Call out to your master then and see if he’s there to help you.

      Do you deny that Reagan used that phrase as a slogan? Though he and Trump used that phrase (Thatcher too) it does not necessarily mean that they campaigned on Nazi principles. Happy?

      I'm German and can point you to numerous German language articles about how Adolf Hitler said he'd make Germany great again. It wasn't an official campaign slogan (we didn't have those in the same way) but he expressed that sentiment many, many times.

    • Citibank / Other Slurpsurp
      OP
      Agreed. As a German citizen you know making comparisons to Hitler are extremely inflammatory and serve only to weaken your argument. What would happen to me in Germany if I made such proclamations in public? Very sensitive subject to this very day. It was horrendous when same comparisons were made with Obama’s. Sickening. I’m not a fan of trump, just looking for glimmers of hope. Ironic, I know ;)

      By similar logic, is the converse true - that people who don't agree with MAGA hate America? That's the optics of this.

    His two biggest accomplishments -- tax cuts and trade tariffs -- are complete wolf in sheep's clothing. Anyone can pump up the current economy by loaning from the future. We gave a trillion dollars to corporations and the 1%, all while real wages for the rest of the country have declined the past two years. This is not good for the country.

    One of the Trump adminstration's biggest sins, and something our children and grandchildren will forever hold against us, is the complete destruction of environmental protections. The trump administration is sending us gleefully towards a future where we will be unable to drink clean water, breathe clean air, have access to the outdoors. Not to mention the devastating effects to our planet as a whole.

      Letting asbestos back into building materials. People died horrible deaths from mesothelioma. Firefighters are put at risk. Just unconscionable.

    I personally find the man revolting. I also find the person I considered a great professional mentor revolting as a person.

    I think if everyone in both the executive and legislative branches did less grandstanding and didn't feed on drama like a highschool drama addict they might be able to do some good.

    Anyone who says it isn't possible is both correct and wrong all at once. It use to happen a lot more than it does now. The Supreme Court nominee use to get confirmation with a majority vote of it was a resonable canidate I, not a party line vote.

    Even our currently elected leadership has voted and done a few great things, but it didn't make the news because everyone is so focused on everything else. They passed a really good bill that directly helps people like me with hearing challenges, it was passed in August of 2017. I never heard anything about it until CES 2018 when I read a couple companies referenced it with their new offerings that were possible because of the act.

    I think the right is wrong to call the press the enemy just because they often don't agree, I think the left is wrong for feeding the press everything it can that makes any agenda or thought that doesn't align with their own is wrong. And I think the press is wrong for failing to deliver news that is relevant and often good news just because it doesn't generate as much revenue.

    Left vs Right needs to stop
    If it bleeds it leads needs to stop

    I am glad Trump is willing to make an effort to challenge the trade agreements and China's indirect attack on the US economy.

    I also think the reason he is doing it so loudly is that it makes the press go crazy.

    This is just my opinion based on the past 20 years of my adult life, living in several other countries, and 6 years of military service. I am not an expert in any way, I just don't like the way our country has become so focused on the infighting rather than working together to find a 70% solution that might make 70% of the country happy rather than doing nothing just because we can't agree on a 100% solution.

      Thanks for this thoughtful post. I agree with a lot of what you say, but I just don’t think it’s the whole story. Yes, more used to get accomplished through bipartisan efforts. The parties do not share equal blame for the current state. We got here through citizens united paving the way for dark money to fill congress with obstructionist far right tea party maniacs. This gave Mitch McConnell what he needed to destroy hundreds of years of legislative and democratic norms.

      And that’s not even taking into consideration that we have had two republican presidents who lost the popular vote and essentially cheated their way i to office (the FL county that went Buchanan in 2000 was mathematically shown to be an outlier bc of an intentionally misleading ballot design and should have been re-run, but the republican-leaning SC thanks to Reagan’s appointees helped them get away w it all).

      I’m not saying both sides are perfect, and the mainstream media has a lot of improving to do. But claiming “both sides” when objectively, one side has worked to systematically disenfranchise American voters and is now fully embracing conspiracy theorists, is wrong and harmful.

    His “drain the swamp” cabinet and those in his orbit have committed more crimes and to a greater degree than most people can even keep track of. He’s facilitated the abuse and orphaning of hundreds (maybe thousands) of innocent children, those too young to speak being asked to represent themselves in court. He has confirmed some of the least qualified judges to ever sit for a hearing. We will suffer because of what he’s done for decades, maybe generations.

    But glad to hear you’re coming around.

    If this trade war is part of the mad man doctrine it may be worth it, just like his deliberately childish tweets.
    However it has been going on for quite some time and is very expensive to maintain.
    I don't mind using tariffs as political power plays like screwing with Turkey and the EU.
    But you can't do power plays against China and it only wastes a lot of money.
