Seems Grandad's golfing holiday did not do much to restore his faculties.

Yesterday the President claimed Norway had started receiving the first American-made “F-52s” . ​“In November, we started delivering the first F-52s fighter jets,” he said.

The F-52 is a fictional aircraft that features prominently in the successful Call of Duty video game series.

At least we have learnt that when Trump is not watching TV or tweeting he is playing video games!

No he did not say that and he will properly speak into the mouse when wants to play the game.

Transcript:
"In November we started, delivering the first F-52s and F-35 fighter jets. We have a total of 52! And they delivered a number of them already a little ahead of schedule."

Looks like he has a problem reading "52 F-35", and he even tried, albeit not very clearly and successful, to correct himself.

Told you he would speak into the mouse. A bad selected screen shot.

In other news he is the best President since Nixon. He really deserves his 18:30 bedtime and cheesburger:
Quote:
The advance seasonally adjusted insured unemployment rate was 1.3 percent for the week ending December 30, a decrease of 0.1 percentage point from the previous week's unrevised rate. The advance number for seasonally adjusted insured unemployment during the week ending December 30 was 1,867,000, a decrease of 35,000 from the previous week's revised level. This is the lowest level for insured unemployment since December 29, 1973 when it was 1,805,000.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

From Guardian today:

Republicans retiring in record numbers fuel fears of losing House at midterms

The Democrats need to win 25 seats to take control of the House of Representatives in 2018 and there are now 31 open seats held by Republicans.

Is any more proof needed of Trump's sanity?

Trump would not specify whether he's spoken directly to Kim.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I do think he is Dyslexic, he doesn't read, makes mistakes like the infamous "covfefe" cant pronounce words. Top that off with dementia and a touch of ADD and you've got yourself a President.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

In the latest news, Trump is too scared to come to London to open the new Embassy.

And he has called a few developing countries sh**holes.

He'll say "I love Swaziland, great chocolate, did you know they make chocolate there? not a lot of people know that, and some amazing clocks, mad clocks, totally cuckoo. Cuckoo like the fake news reports of my inauguration crowd size. Great people the Dutch."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

I remember having called Haiti a "hell-hole".

I wouldn't say it's racist. Just vulgar.

There's a pretty low level of solidarity in US society (one could argue at what point you could stop counting it as a "society"), the outcry about not taking too many immigrants from poor 3rd-world countries is a bit hypocritical.

That is because they have their own, and too many at that.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

To be honest, I think the Independent has been rabidly anti-Trump for a long time so I would take anything they publish regarding Trump with a pinch of salt.

Six stabbing deaths in London this month already due to black on black crime.

Perhaps he cancelled because London has become another shit hole?

For once I agree with Trump, Sarf London is a dump* (albeit a gentrified dump).
The man knows his stuff when it comes to premium locations and the previous Grosvenor Sq, Mayfair address is as good as it gets.
