Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I thought Tillerson would be the next to go because Trump constantly publicly puts forward views opposite to Tillerson's policies who then has to drag the whole business back on mission.
There is also the fact Trump that has not proposed candidates for very many vacant positions in State Department including many vacant US Ambassador positions (including most EU countries, India, Switzerland and Saudi), presumably he wants to weaken State?

Now I think Tillerson believes what he is doing is important for America and will stick it out for the good of the country.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump's profile picture on twitter, I assume it is called the schoolboy look

I suppose he is signing something but the way the picture is cropped it looks like he is a child surrounded by adults

i love how you guys always mix breaking stories with your own fantasies, quickly going from rumors to absolute truths within your bubble. quite pathetic really, it is the reason the world is in the state that it is.

Who needs enemies when you have a friend like Bannon?

From your link "He specifically criticized White House economic adviser Gary Cohn and “Goldman Sachs lobbying” in the White House."

I am sure it will really help Trump to have Bannon bashing his WH advisers via Breitbart

No erection so far today but I have hopes

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

For those brainwashed EFers who blindly spout whatever BS Trump tweets (you know who you are), here's the truth about Trump being the "biggest job-creating president of all time" and his supernatural ability to drive the stock market eternally upward.



It's a bit embarrassing when those claims are exposed as bald, blatant lies, isn't it?

Yup, it sure looks like Bannon's 110% behind Trump, with statements like "The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over" and "It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over."

There's no doubt that Bannon still has his maniacal death-wish for everyone he sees as "liberal" and he still embraces the "alt-right" and their white supremacist beliefs, but clearly he doesn't see Trump as the vehicle to achieve his aims any more.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

More than half of the members of the 15-person Digital Economy Board of Advisors, an expert board set up last year by the Obama administration to help the federal government navigate the digital economy, are known to have resigned this week in the wake of President Donald Trump's controversial comments about the violence last week in Charlottesville,

Who, in your opinion, constitute the 'alt-left media', and how do they differ from the long standing main stream media?

anyone that by and large ignores or supports alt left (antifa, blm etc) racism, sexism, fascism and violence.

the likes of huffpost, vice and many other nasty websites on the forefront, with cnn trailing closely behind.

Just caught this before it was deleted. Whoever is making these tweets needs sacking because they're making the POTUS look a fool.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I don't miss George W. the slightest.

President Obama, yes.

But I don't miss an idiot just because an even bigger idiot showed up (and was "elected" due to some seriously ed up system..)
