You really need a girlfriend, Phos.
He's married with kids, so he really needs a hobby or a shed, but if his wife sees this...

There are a lot of other broken things that need to be fixed, and their solutions will not please everybody.
...she'll have him chained to the shed until everything in the house is fixed. Then who would we rage at? Be careful what you wish for...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Mr Trump replaced the acting director of the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Daniel Ragsdale, who has been in the post since 20 January. He is the former deputy director. No reason given publicly, very unusual to fire somebody after so short a tenure!

As Godwins law has already been invoked I feel empowered to write "Obeying unlawful orders was not accepted as a defence at the Nuremberg trials".

There is a new Twitter account claimed to be run by anonymous dissident White House staffers actually some tweets do have an authentic ring.
If it is a fake then it is a very good one

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Aw, don't be bitter. Get with the program. He's making good changes.

If you're on the wrong side of history, then you'll just keep losing and losing.

All the while, he keeps winning and winning.

Which means if you moan and groan, then it must have been a good thing.

MAGA!

Well, he's contributed to one thread 99% of the time, spent a huge amount of time and effort making it all about himself and managed to attract a little fan club into the mix. I'm sure he's thrilled.

Meanwhile there are about two dozen other threads on the go which are thankfully Phos-less.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Can we change the poll to:

Do you want Trump to be
-assassinated?
-impeached?
-ignored?
-knighted by HM?

Ignored would probably be the optimal answer. Although there is the risk of bigger and bigger "Hold my beer and watch this!" kind of moments to get the attention he craves.

The other options just speak of glory or martyrdom. Neither of which he deserves.

I wonder if Aaron Sorkin is holed up in NY busily scribbling away on an alternative styled *West Wing* script. Rich pickings, you couldn’t make half of this stuff up.

I think it's great. In unrelated news, in my opinion, all trolls should be confined to one thread.

EF is already great, any more awesome and we'd have to relocate the servers to the International Space Station.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

oh but where else can you actually hear anybody stand up for Trump? Nowhere right? How often that does happen? Never? Not often enough right? Not often.

I mean, its a mess, what do you want, your own echo chamber? Its a mess right? Bad! Bad stuff! Failing!
