you can't tell me that Trump didn't give the most epic news conference ever yesterday...

not sure I agree with it, but the fact that he disrespects the media is imho completely well deserved... they slaughtered him for almost 2 years... and he is just banging right back... don't feel sorry for them one bit

The 'slaughtering' they gave/give him is well deserved. That guy needs to stick to hotels and golf courses. He has no business being in the WhiteHouse.

THIS is coming to a city near you! You can bet on that.

You're dead wrong. These are all misunderstandings and misinterpretations of their actions. :roll eyes: :roll eyes:

We need to seek a better way to understand their pain and what we did to drive them to commit acts they clearly didn't mean to engage in. Where have we gone wrong?!?!!! :roll eyes:

I, too, would like them to report the "news". I also agree that we have not had a figure in power such as him before, it's quite unconventional. Is it effective, though? That is debatable, and remains to be seen.
See, this is an objective, moderate post. I can get behind it. If the Republicans on this site could just be a little more like this and not so "Trump is great, you guys lost, get fucked" these conversations would be so much more productive. You can have reservations about someone you voted for, it's OK guys. You voted for him because you thought he was better than HRC, but you didn't think he was god did you? Because that's how you're acting.
They aren't republicans. I have a buddy who's a big Bernie Sanders fan that went hardcore trump. hopefully science will find a cause for that condition someday

Let's rewind and look at what you said:

The subject of your first sentence is 'strength' - saying that something is not a strength =/= claiming that thing is a weakness. It just means that it's not a strength. Furthermore, you seem to flip flop on your use of the word "not" through the sentence.

'Obama's strength was not business': Ok, he wasn't strong on business. Again, that doesn't mean you are claiming he was weak on business.

'Obama's strength was not backslapping': Huh? Is backslapping a good or bad thing? The original post seems to imply that 'not backslapping' is a good thing, your 2nd response seems to imply that it's a bad thing.

'Obama's strength was not recognizing the reality that he had to include Republicans and give them reasonable input.': Again, what? This seems to imply that excluding Republicans was a good thing, then your 2nd response seems to imply that it's a bad thing.

Before you accuse someone of poor reading comprehension, perhaps you should make sure you're able to convey thoughts clearly.

The DNC fucking Bernie woke a lot of people up. They created this never forget that trump being president is in direct relation to the corruption of the democrats, their party, and especially the DNC.

Trump is like batman, he's the hero America deserves right now.

America needs a hero. It truly does. The hero needs to say loud and clear the kids gets a chance. Education for all those smart enough, it needs a hero of the real people can rely on.

Besides anglo, I dare you to find someone here I wouldn't pick over Trump as your president. I even would do the job if I had to, just so we could have less this:



And a little less this:


And more this:

More than anything I have peace of mind that this Country will be a safer place, present and future. Hard to put a price tag on that. I have quite a few Christian friends, they have peace of mind too, with or without Trump.

I'm not worried at all, that feeling right or wrong feels real good. And as you can see from many of my posts, I loooove to be a winner.

Considering we don't even know who is in charge of national security right now it's obvious that your feeling of safety is derived only from knowing that your party is in charge. It's called the placebo effect. An argument could be made the other way in that more people are angry at us then ever before (due to the ban and Trump's big plans) and therefore we are less safe.

I'm happy he won't be setting the justice department loose on every policeman and police department that is trying to do their job. I'm happy he won't be trying to pit Americans against each other on a daily basis. I'm happy for Gorsuch. I'm happy he won't chew gum at memorial services.

Call it what you want, but I know one thing it's far easier to live each day not worrying about the sky is falling and were all gonna die. Can we at least agree on that?

How? How is not making you a target?

How is he making your country safer? How will the isolationism work for you?

I'm an atheist, as told here but I study religions as a hobby. I've said it multiple times here, but ours (I was raised Christian) has worse shit in it than koran has.

You will be safe, you will also be alone. That's not good for economy.

You're simply asking too much. Hysteria is too much fun.
