Just be thankful he made it plural. I was thinking more Mr. Pye, or Daniel Radcliffe in 'Horns', then my mind wandered into a dark place where Daniel Radcliffe occasionally looks hot. That's just wrong...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Christmas decorated horns with led lighting for the jolly season is the way to go, I reckon. Imagine the shock the ladies will get when you doff your hat to them when out for a festive evening stroll.

The Unibrow is usually enough to scare them off.

I just wonder what the objective of the protesters is and who is the target of their protests?
I mean they cannot realistically expect people who voted for Trump to withdraw their votes even if there was any mechanism to do that.
Also, the US Constitution would not enable Trump'selection to be cancelled.
Reminds me of Canute trying to stop the tide!
I think it was Democrats showing their anger that their team lost. During most of the campaigning, Hilary was winning the pole of poles (Average) and I think she even won 300'000 more votes, but due to the electoral college system, she didn't get enough seats.

I think many Republicans didn't want to admit to the pollsters they were going to vote for Trump, just look at the statistics, and so the Democrats were lulled into a false feeling of winning. The results were close, it is a shame that the 3rd and 4th parties upset the results a bit, if you took their 3% or 5 % and gave them to Hilary she would have won easily.

It's not the end of the world yet, but maybe it's the beginning of the end of the world...

the real question we should be asking is why the silent vote was so massive.

i for one would laugh and nod when someone makes a joke or idiotic comment about trump or 'the right' at work. admittedly that doesnt happen very often as there is clearly an unwritten rule to not discuss politics.

the current riots show why people do that. no way im risking career or body for a useless discussion. apparently people on the other side feel safe enough to make the occasional comment tho?

My Swiss neighbour said...

"We have so many referendums that if we talked about politics, we wouldn't have time to talk about anything else."

I do wonder if that's a knock on effect of direct democracy.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

VP-elect Mike Pence to take over lead of Trump transition team from Chris Christie!

Anyway it looks like a law suit is pending against Christie due to the Bridgegate affair!

Also seems Trump has doubts about Christie's loyalty.

The Trump transition team has an executive committee including three of Trumps children and a son in law(who was talking about draining a swamp?)

It just crossed my fb news feed that Trump will not repeal Obamacare.

Popcorn, please.

Some people drew parallels between Trump's victory and the Brexit result.

Seems the similarity is becoming even stronger; Trump is walking away from his campaign promises even faster than the Leave Campaigners

Perhaps they were just words, and he didn't mean them literally?

It worries me that people use their Facebook feed as a referenced news source when the entire Internet is available.

The actual story is that Trump agrees with and wants to keep two aspects of the affordable health act.

-so far...

Maybe you prefer Twitter?;
Trump has given America's highest security clearances to Chris Christie, Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich and Mike Rogers

Republican official says Trump will not fully repeal Obamacare, build a wall, ban Muslim travel or mass deport illegals

Does not seem possible to verify these claims
