Great film! It seems relevant IMO because it portrays how the candidate/puppet with the least knowledge, background, etc. becomes the ideal candidate to put in 'power' to push through the agenda of the so-called 'deep state' banksters and corporatists.

Truman instead of Wallace as FDR's VP in 1944 (when FDR was dying), for example.

"I like to watch."

Maybe it's just me, but I think this is a bit of marketing on Trump's part. He's an executive producer of the show still (read: makes money) and keeping the show in the news gets people to watch. He doesn't want Arnie's ratings to match his own of course, but he doesn't want the show to tank completely either. Besides, Arnie can't ever be president and Trump will love to rub that in.

So Trump is at the National Prayer Breakfast as US President and uses the occasion to promote his show.

He will never get ethics will he!

Regardless of what his motives were, it is quite frankly nigh-on unbelievable that he used a prayer event to even dare to broach that topic. I mean really, what person in their right mind would even contemplate doing such a thing? He is clearly a deranged individual, and I genuinely mean that.

Thought he was supposed to have given up ALL his business interests before taking office.

The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!
I wonder what country he believes this judge presides in

Best reply so far

this "so-called" judge, nominated by George W. Bush and confirmed by a Senate vote of 99-0.
Trump must be sailing close to contempt of court which even presidents are not exempt from.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Isn't Trump's use of the term 'law-enforcement' in his tweet more than misleading the public?

I get the feeling the apprentice isn't enjoying being the apprentice as much as he thought he would.

Oh, and look. The Swiss now have a petition to ban him from entering the country. Signees please step forward.

http://www.campax.org/petition/petit...rata-erklaeren

UK petition is almost up to 1,850,000 signatures.
