I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius type
I’m reinventing politics, and you all should believe the hype
Because I am the President of the most bigly superpower
(Just don’t show that video of me getting a golden shower!)
I won an election that was very very thrillery
And so I just might put in jail that crooked loser Hillary
I had a bigly crowd at my inaugural festivity
Rumors to the contrary are left-wing negativity!
Rumors to the contrary are left-wing negativity!
Rumors to the contrary are left-wing negativity!
Rumors to the contrary are left-wing negativitivity!
I have nothing but contempt for diplomatic protocol
And so my tweets are short and sweet, no need for all that fooferall
Don’t believe the rumors that I’m stealing all that I can swipe
I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius type
Don’t believe the rumors that he’s stealing all that he can swipe
He is the very model of a Very Stable Genius type

I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius type
I haven’t read Wolff’s book just yet, but I am rather sure it’s tripe
I barely read at all, in fact, but that’s no liability
I get my news from Fox and Friends, who know of my ability!
I learn stuff all about the world by daily watching Hannity
To trust in any other source would be, I say, insanity
All the other channels are fake news that’s very treacherous
Like global warming, Russia-gate, and rumors that I’m lecherous!
Like global warming, Russia-gate, and rumors that he’s lecherous!
Like global warming, Russia-gate, and rumors that he’s lecherous!

I’m good friends with Putin, he’s my muse in thing political
(And he’s got some kompromat, it’s secrecy is critical!)
Though Burlesconi and Hugo Chavez are more my archetype
I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius type
Though Burlesconi and Hugo Chavez are more his archetype
He is the very model of a Very Stable Genius type

I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius type
Administ’ring the government, it is a bit like hunting snipe
Kim Jong Un looks up to me, he’s jealous of my button’s size
(That’s not the only thing I’ve got that yuge, you won’t believe your eyes!)
Although his fawning entourage is something that I sorely lack
My underlings they kiss my ass but then they stab me in the back
And then there is Bob Mueller and the great Deep State conspiracy
The notion that I’m in hock to Comrade Putin, it is heresy!
The notion that he’s in hock to Comrade Putin, it is heresy!
The notion that he’s in hock to Comrade Putin, it is heresy!
The notion that he’s in hock to Comrade Putin, it is here-heresy!
But my lawyers tell me it will all be over real quick
They’re gonna make arrangements so that I can do my “your fired!” shtick
But people underestimate my talents, that’s my only gripe
I am the very model of a Very Stable Genius type
But people underestimate his talents, that’s his only gripe
He is the very model of a Very Stable Genius type




EDIT: I didn't write the maj. Gen. Patter above. I found it on the internet.

As odious, worthless, and incompetent as Trump is, the opioid crisis in the US is by no means his doing and wouldn't be easy for anyone to solve, even if they were a qualified individual and not a petulant gibbering manbaby.
Agreed but he certainly will not solve it by doing nothing and he promised a lot..

He made promises of his own free will to fix the opioid epidemic.
Just days before New Hampshirites headed to the polls to vote in the nation's first primary, Trump assuaged their [opioid] concerns in a Facebook video.

He promised to try to help those struggling with addiction.
"(T)he people that are in trouble, the people that are addicted, we're going to work with them and try and make them better," he said in the video. "And we will make them better."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Contain your excitement folks, the date of the Fake News awards is delayed.

Quote:
Donald J. Trump‏@realDonaldTrump

The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday.
The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!
Somewhat of a confused tweet, surely the awards will be presented to the people named for these awards, not the losers.

So far Trump has not attempted to give any illusion of reality by appointing an independent judging panel.

Celebrity chef Jose Andres offered a free lunch at any of his popular restaurants to [Fake News] winners, and the watchdog group American Oversight planned to hand out “Most Dishonest and Corrupt” awards to Trump administration officials on Monday as a response to Trump's plans.

Yes, so far he has not denied making the remarks just tried to spin them as meant against Manafort despite the fact that the original remarks were clear.

Could say the same for Trump's march to the presidency, or his conduct thereafter, to be fair.

It only seems logical to me that at some point Trump would be interviewed. It doesn't mean he's broken any laws. He was at the top of the campaign that's being investigated. It's important to know what he knew and when.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A bit like a 4th level subordinate cross-examining a Level 1 CEO. Ask the wrong questions, and you're fired.

Trump has the authority to legally shut down Mueller at any time. He's just letting it ride, as well as he should. So far, I have seen Trump restore the rule of law and legal processes. I've yet to see him subordinate the Law the way Obama has on numerous fronts; DACA and Healthcare are examples.

One of the values Trump propositioned is the restoration of the rule of law, and a return to a constitutional judiciary. Anything apart of this is a type of corruption. So far, he and Jeff Session have been following through on this process of restoration. For as long as they stay true to it, they are on the right path. Bigly.

It was a big beautiful fire. His buildings have the best fires, many burns victims have told him this. His fires are much bigger than Little Rocket Man's fires (and they actually burn!).
