Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Pancake, I can agree with your general sentiment. Which is why I can't relate to left or right. All religions to varying degrees are a threat to me as an atheist.

It's funny. I was just sitting here thinking a few minutes ago that you and I actually seem to see eye-to-eye more than we might realize. I guess my beliefs / views do seem to usually fall more to the left side of the spectrum, but at the same time, I also try to not view everything through the lens of a cognitive bias. I don't think the truth always lies in the middle, but I think sometimes you do have to try to inch over into to the middle a bit to be able to see the truth.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump is claiming he lied about COVID-19 to prevent panic, this is one of today's typical Trump panic inspiring tweets.

If Joe Biden is elected, far-left lunatics won’t just be running failed Dem Cities—they will be running the Department of Justice, the Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
No city, town or suburb will be safe.
On November 3rd, your vote will SAVE AMERICA!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Weird week

Quote:
Donald Trump called Robert Mueller’s investigators a “hit squad” on Saturday, joining rightwing outcry over Department of Justice documents that indicated members of the Russia investigation wiped information from at least 15 phones.

“So now we find out that the entire Mueller ‘hit squad’ illegally wiped their phones clean just prior to the investigation of them,” the president wrote on Twitter.
Source

Mueller found that Trump had not criminally colluded with Russia so what is Trump expecting to find on the "wiped phones"? Evidence that he did actually collude?

Trump getting desperate!

Sleepy Joe Biden has spent 47 years in politics being terrible to Hispanics.
Now he is relying on Castro lover Bernie Sanders to help him out. That won’t work!
Remember, Miami Cubans gave me the highly honored Bay of Pigs Award for all I have done for our great Cuban Population!

There is no such award as the Bay of Pigs Award!
The Bay of Pigs was a 1961 failed landing invasion by Cuban exiles who were against Fidel Castro’s Cuban Revolution.

The Bay of Pigs was a 1961 failed landing invasion by Cuban exiles who were against Fidel Castro’s Cuban Revolution.
You omitted “ Covertly financed and directed by the U.S. government, the operation took place at the height of the Cold War, and its failure led to major shifts in international relations between Cuba, the United States, and the Soviet Union.”

If Trump was a little smarter he would have referred to it as “ bahía de Cochinos.”

Usual Trump disregard for petty things like obeying laws.

This could roll on for a while as various groups go to court getting rollback of selected DHS Secretary Wolf's actions on the grounds they were unlawful.
I do not know whether it is possible for anybody to go after Wolf personally for liability but if I was a peaceful protestor in Portland who suffered at the hands of his shock troops then I would consider it.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump has now introduced the idea of patriotic education.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/17/u...education.html

"President Trump escalated his attacks on “left-wing demonstrators” and “far-left mobs” on Thursday, portraying himself as a defender of American heritage against revolutionary fanatics and arguing for a new “pro-American” curriculum in the nation’s schools."

"This month, Mr. Trump directed administration officials to halt or revise racial sensitivity training programs that he deemed “divisive” and “un-American propaganda,” and he threatened on Twitter to cut off federal education funding to California over the state’s incorporation of the 1619 Project in its public school curriculum."

"“Our heroes will never be forgotten,” Mr. Trump said. “Our youth will be taught to love America.”"


Trump has learned from the best which includes North Korea.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The author has the the readers on the edge of their seats right from the start:

According to a recent Hill-HarrisX poll of registered voters, President Donald Trump's approval rating just hit its highest mark since June.
Wow, highest approval since 3 months!! Awesome, please, dear writer, tell us the number.

For some reason, the author disappoints his readership

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

From the same site, his numbers still do not look so exciting, they were at their best around March time.

It is certainly true that voters seem little interested in what Trump does or what happens to the US.
The Woodward tapes would have destroyed any other president but the polls have barely moved since they were released, like the pussy-grabbing episode that also did not move the polls.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I would not believe any polls. Trump might win or lose, no one really knows. Either way for someone like me who does not care too much it will be entertaining to see the losing side moan and fume
