Maybe they should get a different VP first.

Or is it just the media that paints Pence as "worse than Trump, but better manners"?
I actually think Pence is more dangerous; he also has reprehensible views, but he's way smarter and eloquent than the orange twat.

Well **** me, clearly I must have missed a lot of articles over the last few weeks if Kim Jong has just apparently agreed to "complete denuclearization" and "to become one again". http://metro.co.uk/2018/04/27/north-...again-7502578/

Call me sceptical and I would be happy to be proven wrong with things like this, but how/why does a cruel and iron-fisted dictator used to being the absolute ruler of his domain suddenly decide to re-integrate himself with his "sworn enemy" who a year ago he was apparently ready to obliterate? Could two peoples even of the same heritage but with such polarising cultures suddenly re-integrate themselves in any normal fashion? Could he really have been so badly misjudged, or is this all part of some devilish plan?



Sounds to me like PR BS by Kim designed to take heat off of North Korea... but yeah, would love to be proven wrong.
It's almost like, oh, I dunno, maybe having someone "unhinged and incoherent" in charge of the biggest nuclear arsenal in the world might have made him sit up and pay attention for once?

Gametheory has you covered:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicken_(game)

Basically, to win there you have to make sure your opponent believes that you're even crazier then him.

Everybody can decide for himself just how crazy he thinks Trump really is.


That said, as I watch "Designated Survivor" right now, I can't help but feel that Pence is really the person you don't want to become POTUS.

Indeed! I think Pence is Trump's insurance against impeachment and other such good stuff.

If you're like me and like a good conspiracy theory, you could also think about how certain people put Pence in that very place because they knew (I'm sure these people had access to full psychological evaluations and a lot more data than the general public) that Trump might not last a full term.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The GOP has enough fissures on their policies without the retiring GOP House leader Ryan starting a religious dispute by firing the Catholic House Chaplin for dubious reasons.
Then the man chairing the committee to replace him poured oil on the flames by saying they were looking for a family man with adult children which clearly rules out celibate Catholic priests.

Source

Meanwhile Trump is calling on Senator Tester to resign for collecting a list of allegations against Trump's VA nominee, Jackson.
Surprisingly Jackson withdrew his nomination despite the White House claiming these allegations are easily disproved?

Not sure what he is talking about, Usually he quotes Rasmussen polls but the latest one has both him and Obama at 47% at the same date.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

IMO, those numbers mean just one thing: people have stopped caring - and they also stopped caring at that point during the Obama-administration.

I'm glad that I don't watch news on TV anymore.

Please, pay attention. Trump's picture is on top and the blue line is on top right next to him. Therefore, he's the bigly winner.

Way too many ad hominems, the personal attacks on Trump are getting stale.

Listening to her one might think his actions don't provide enough attack-worthy material.

Oh, wait ...

Michelle Wolf did the job she was paid to do, if the snowflakes can't take it then they need to find another line of work.
We have a US President who labels an ex FBI director as a "slime ball".
Then the GOP complain about some jokes?

National Enquirer magazine that usually supports Trump and even allegedly paid off a Playboy model who was claiming an affair with Trump has changed direction and thrown Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen under the bus!!

I'm sure she thought she did.

I found it juvenile at best. I'd have expected something more, given the audience.

She's a comedian. What do you expect?

I find it a bit rich that some people think there's something wrong with jokes made by a comedian at an event that's deliberately a roast of the president, yet Trump can say and tweet whatever he wants (talk about distorting the truth or ignoring it completely????) and that's no big deal/fake news. Big boy Trumpypants shouldn't dish it if he can't take it.

Trump has no class. Does that then mean that nobody else should?
