Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Mostly when Trump insults women by Tweet he mentions blood, clearly a reference to menstruation.
Whether he shares with primitive tribes their fear of menstruation or he believes this is a misogynist way to disparage women I do not know.

Anyway as the leader of the free world he should be above such kindergarten reactions; imagine how he will react when other world leaders criticise him.

Also known as telling a government what to do by threatening to shuit down jobs.

Well, let them try.
Only form of diplomacy Trump understands is threats; but in this case it is simple business bottom line?
If the component costs rise too high then BMW will no longer be able to continue to run their successful export business out of Spartanburg.

Looking forward to your York Notes literature guide to Donald Trump tweets.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I starter a new job recently and on the second day my new manager explained to me his utter disdain for Trump and Trump supporters. He also informed me that the SVP is "literally the Nazi party of CH"

Good times ahead

Bizarre induction speech. My early days in a new job are usually filled with advice of how to work the coffee machine and printer, find the best places for a lunchtime sandwich, and where the toilet is.

I thought it was a bit strange too (especially since no one is American )

He is also a gay vegan. I feel like i'm in a sitcom.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The video in this article says it all. This is the man they voted in as President of the United States of America. God help them!

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40466301

But hey, it's okay because I'm the President. No, just a sexist buffoon who wouldn't stand a chance of getting laid if he wasn't a billionaire.

If he ever came near me with that crap he'd get his face slapped - HARD!

Seems a bit extreme.

Maybe he'd worked out that you're a wingnut and he was trolling you.

If he's also Buddhist I know him. Buddhist gay vegans are the worst.
I'd feel sorry for you but you like Trump, so sounds like well deserved.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Another blow to one of Trump's ideas. States refuse to give voters' info to commission.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40469272

And all because he insists he would have won the popular vote as well except for massive election voting fraud. Much better things for the money to be spent on - like better healthcare for everyone. Oops! What a bad idea!

Good to see even some Rs are standing up to the request. This is an overreach and it's not clear what the commission would do with that much personal information, or how it would even identify anyone that had voted illegally.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I know, it's ridiculous. Do you really need: names, addresses, dates of birth, political affiliation, last four digits of social security number, voting history since 2006, criminal convictions and military status to ascertain if someone is eligible to vote or not? Neither political affliation or voting history should be included. Criminal convictions I guess maybe if they're not allowed to vote, but what's your military status got to do with voting?

Not defending this, but military status might be used to inferr absentee voting. On the other hand, it is a huge invasion of privacy and a giant crock of malodorous excrement.

I honestly wonder if there's a pre nup she can't get out of, covered by an nda.

In which case she should look at is an unconscionable contract.

I see her dominating him..

Look beneath the surface marton, look beneath the surface.

Don't understand the push for portraying her needy and submissive, must be some male fantasy really.

Are you sure? This is not what his workers told us when they were on strike a few years back when we visited (what an awful place, but a relative insisted) - Atlantic City
