Talking about schadenfreude i'm not sure which I find more pathetic: The cocksure attitude and the self appointed righteousness of the Hillary supporters before the election or their crying and whinging that followed it.

Couldn't somebody give him some public speaking steroids? It really hurts to watch and listen. Even if he were making sense it would still be painful!

Improvement????? The only thing that he has changed in the last few days is adding long pauses between his superlatives...makes him sound like Yeltsin.

Wait.... I've figured it out. A significant portion of the educated population will shoot themselves during his first state of the union address. Brilliant.

The sad part is the only thing his detractors and opposition has is a hope for failure. Very sad state.

His approval rating is at 59%. All the wailing and the media fabrications failed.

He won again...

Indeed

Trump’s approval rating is lower than any prior new president. Remarkably, more people have a negative opinion of him than any other new president in his first job evaluation.

This is today's Rsmussen Report:

"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-one percent (41%) disapprove."

OMG, he's winning. He's winning again...

Then he is different as corrupt politicians have an agenda for personal financial or other personal gains.

Obama is not one of those politicians. His decisions were not for personal financial gain.

Perhaps use a different similie next time?

Trump on the other hand has already acted in a corrupt manner, after he was elected but before his inauguration by encouraging Ukip leader Nigel Farage to oppose the building of wind farms which were a blight on the landscape, especially if they were to be built next to Trump's Scottish golf courses.
I see you have an issue with the word corruption, that's your issue with the English language.

Corruption does not have monetary gain as a prerequisite. (although it commonly does).

I feel basing a strong point of one's running campaign as shutting down Guantanamo Bay, then not only not accomplishing it in 8 years, rather signing bills to make it harder to shut down---this is either, corruption, or just plain being useless. Obama is a smart calculated person, so I would wager on the first.

Also many passionate speeches on freedom, yet quietly supporting NSA spying programs on it's citizens---again pretty corrupt.

"is adding long pauses between his superlatives" I assume he is taking longer to read the tele prompter as he is too vain to wear spectacles

Thanks but I will stick with Gallup that shows Trump’s approval rating is lower than any prior new president. ; Rasmussen Reports is a conservative leaning American polling company that somehow produces different numbers

The State Department’s entire senior management team just resigned.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s job running the State Department just got considerably more difficult. The entire senior level of management officials resigned Wednesday, part of an ongoing mass exodus of senior foreign service officers who don’t want to stick around for the Trump era.

Yeah, but they don't usually leave immediately.

From the Washington Post link:

"Then suddenly on Wednesday afternoon, Kennedy and three of his top officials resigned unexpectedly, four State Department officials confirmed. Assistant Secretary of State for Administration Joyce Anne Barr, Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Michele Bond and Ambassador Gentry O. Smith, director of the Office of Foreign Missions, followed him out the door. All are career foreign service officers who have served under both Republican and Democratic administrations."

"One senior State Department official who responded to my requests for comment said that all the officials had previously submitted their letters of resignation, as was required for all positions that are appointed by the president and that require confirmation by the Senate, known as PAS positions.

“No officer accepts a PAS position with the expectation that it is unlimited. And all officers understand that the President may choose to replace them at any time,” this official said. “These officers have served admirably and well. Their departure offers a moment to consider their accomplishments and thank them for their service. These are the patterns and rhythms of the career service.”

Ambassador Richard Boucher, who served as State Department spokesman for Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, said that while there’s always a lot of turnover around the time a new administration takes office, traditionally senior officials work with the new team to see who should stay on in their roles and what other jobs might be available. But that’s not what happened this time."
