Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Very good Saturday Night live again here

Starting with a fake Lesley Holt interview with Trump (Alec Baldwin) and Sean Spicer (Melissa McCarthy) confronts President Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin) about the rumours that he's being replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant).

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Listen to this guy - talk about Health Insurance and pre-existing conditions.

Anyone who says they do not believe in compulsory health care- where the weak or the vulnerable are supported by the healthy and the strong ... listen.

Yes, some conditions are caused by poor life choices, poor diet, poor habits, dangerous sports - many are not- most are genetic and just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time (as I was on that fateful day, with a car and a tree wrapped around me in December 1970, or on the day my first baby was born, a transversal breech who could not come out alive unless they performed a C section... and the list goes on), and poverty takes a heck of a toll on people's health too ...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Clapper said Sunday that the President and the White House are wrong to cite Clapper's previous Senate testimony on the questions about alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia as proof that no such collusion exists,

emphasizing that no one should portray his comments as "exculpatory" -- something Trump has done repeatedly on Twitter.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I thought it was only the US who have the right to demand laptop and mobile phone passwords when you enter the country; turns out the UK do it too

Quote:
The human rights group Cage is preparing to mount a legal challenge to UK anti-terrorism legislation over a refusal to hand over mobile and laptop passwords to border control officials at air terminals, ports and international rail stations.

The move comes after its international director, Muhammad Rabbani, a UK citizen, was arrested at Heathrow airport in November for refusing to hand over passwords.

They both show behaviour that prioritizes their lust for power.

Historic researchers now know that Hitler was also a hypochondriac became hooked on drugs supplied by his doctor, which led to an increase in erratic and often irrational behaviour.

Watch Trump's body movements. They are odd at times and definitely not in sync.

I truly believe there is something psychologically wrong with Trump but more significantly, I question the body of Republican Senators and Representatives who support him.
You should also compare some of the gestures and movements with Mussolini. They're frighteningly similar.

I was in DC recently for 3 days and there were protests every single day. And yes cynics may say there's no use in protesting, but actually there is, some significant changes have happened because people took to the streets. Matter of fact, I'd love to see MUCH more of that, but of course in the apathetic times that we live in, that is just not going to happen. And yes, I'm partly apathetic too, though at least I do care. A lot. And I'm as worried as I've been all along.

He needs to go. It is beyond me how anyone could NOT see the danger that is this person. How anyone can still just brush off this horror. And yes, horror is the right word.

Vice Chair of Donald Trump's voter fraud commission has been successfully sued four times for voter suppression

Because you don't like him and some people are protesting him he needs to go?

The amount of sore losers on Trump never ceases to amaze me. Accept it and move on.

Because he and his team are serial liars so dishonour the office of President and the reputation of the USA?

Source

or because they are simply incompetent?

White House furious after being trolled with Russia Oval Office photos.
"They tricked us," an angry White House official said.
"That's the problem with the Russians -- they lie," the official added.

Source

I do not recall any other President being so easily fooled by the Russians and being so incapable of devising a counter blow!

Oh just a quick look at his "advisers", the rise of the "alt right nazis" and it seems that some feel its now safe to be openly racist. Cool if your a racist scumbag. Not cool for the rest of us humans.

No, not because I don't like him. Because he's dangerous and a serious threat, as I already wrote and have been saying ever since he started campaigning. If you seriously think this is a case of "accept and move on", if you seriously don't recognize that what he's essentially trying to do is eliminate the very basic pillars of democracy and instead establish a form of dictatorship, then you are deaf and blind.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

That dictatorship has been there probably since the 60s.
Maybe even earlier, if you want to believe some youtube conspiracy theorists.

It was just a different varnish, if you want, in the form of a corporatocracy.
Dems and Reps being two different sides of that coin.

Obama put nice smiles and eloquent speeches on top of it, so people could sleep better.

The US made its bed. Now it has to lie in it.
