In the New Yorker’s (May 31) article under the title, “Stephen Hawking angers Trump supporters with baffling array of long words,” Andy Borowitz wrote;

“Speaking to a television interviewer in London, the theoretical physicist, Hawking called Trump “a demagogue who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator. --- “For a so-called genius, this was an epic fail,” Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, said. “If Professor Hawking wants to do some damage, maybe he should try talking in English next time.”

Later in the day, Hawking attempted to clarify his remark about the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee, telling a reporter, “Trump bad man. Real bad man.”

If he lasts 8 years, English will be the easiest language to learn world-wide.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Seems CNN have stopped pulling their punches

Quote:
In a statement, CNN called it a "sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters."

"Clearly, Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied when she said the President had never done so," CNN's statement continued. "Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, ‎dealing with North Korea and working on his health care bill, he is instead involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office.

We will keep doing our jobs.
He should start doing his."

This will all end in tears!

I'm not sure what's worse: thinking that Trump photoshopped the video himself, or that somebody in government was actually paid to create that.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And meanwhile, while everyone is watching the stupid video, the senate sent two version of the health care bill to the Cbo for scoring, and there are claims that one of these bills might pass.

It's so easy to be distracted by Trump's infantile and outrageous behavior while real damage is being done.

"might pass" the Senate is still stuck between the moderates and the extreme conservatives; if they move either way by adjusting the Bill then they risk losing votes from the people of the other faith.
Last count was nine against the Bill and they cannot afford to lose more than two.

Reminds me of the description of a zebra "a horse designed by a committee"

Whatever they pass they have to go back to the House and get their votes before it is final.

A long hard and bumpy road....

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

At what point will people become desensitised to his behaviour? How long will his aides be attempting to polish the turd in the WH?

He reacts to every piddly slight at him in exactly the same way - Badly worded or spelled tweet, emotive tantrum type language, childish name calling, blah blah, wah, wah. CAPITAL LETTERS FOR GOOD MEASURE PLUS A FEW !!! EXCLAMATION !!! MARKS!!!

Yawn.

I wonder how parents have to reconcile it with their kids. Kids obviously are exposed to his outbursts - they can't really avoid it these days. If parents tell their kids he is full of shit, disrespectful to women, media, other politicians, they are basically sending them the message that their nations leader and leader of the free world is sexist, racist, homophobic, and not to be trusted, no matter how clinically they discuss it.

If they tell their kids the prez is basically infallible, what then?

If there really was no voter fraud then wouldn't providing the information delegitimize the voter fraud claims by proving them false?
The US is a Federation so there is always a difficult relation between the Govt. and the States; overall I assume the States could care less if there are real or false claims about voter fraud at the Federal level.
Of course, each State believes their control of voters was correct and there was no fraud in their State.

I wonder why the overreaction to the usual media drama. People are evidently outraged and horrified. Media are peeved since usually it is them that have control over exaggerating and making cash on it. Now he is doing it instead, showing them the middle finger, and probably not cashing it in, but successfully side-tracking and keeping the anti-PC war on. The reaction of people to this is amusing - the ever so authentic world leader, lol. It is obvious that everybody wants him to represent, have a certain role, shower the world with dignified decorum..While he is rolling with some guy on the ground. Classy. I think he is incredibly fast and not actually so authentic, it is quite well timed and strategic. I couldn't care less for the political situ at the moment, but do think the antipc-ness is probably not so bad for the society there. The vid must be his reaction to those three CNN journalists resigning. I wonder if CNN will last. All they do is just react to the Trump show at the moment, he has got them. Maybe it is not true...but it does feel like it. I still think he hires people to tweet for him, work on his visibility, image, popularity, etc. If not, then he is pretty authentic, I am amused.
