Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump's latest tweet makes me wonder how he can work with the intelligence agencies when he comes out with stuff like this. Should he even be revealing this much?

The "Intelligence" briefing on so-called "Russian hacking" was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!

TBH I'm quite surprised, and positively.

Given a choice between the US intelligence agencies and wikileaks, I know who I would believe: ...

Interestingly the bit quoted here: "The U.S. Government assesses that information was leaked to the press and publicly disclosed."
From my perspective, they didn't hack the US, they hacked the DNC and exposed their dealings. I consider it a favor done to the US.

I'm at the point where I'm hoping Trump's presidency is so disastrous that anyone who thought it was a good idea can't look back without feeling ashamed of themselves. But then we live in a world where bragging about sexually assaulting women is "locker room talk", so what do I know anymore.
This admission may be the beginning of all wisdom. May you or may you not be pleasantly surprised.

I like how they scuttled for cover afterwards. It was a good practice snap of the whip, but I suspect this is something reserved for his opponents in due course of time. In the first sessions, they will likely pick off the low hanging fruits; e.g., Supreme Court, Obama directives, etc. At some point, he will clash into the Republican mafia in government, at which point, they probably have an impeachment trap in place. I suspect the swamp will fight back. It'll be fun and entertaining.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Listening to Abdel Bari Atwan in a news discussion over the weekend and he funnily pointed out that Trump moving in his daughter into the White house, Generals and billionaires/business men on the US Cabinet is a typical middle eastern formula, all that is missing is the head gear

We are in for a bumpy ride, methinks.. no one really knows how this is going to pan out - all rather worrying.

Maybe he's going to empty the magazine of his assault weapon of choice from the roof of his prez-mobile into the air along the inauguration parade. That ought to please his Second Amendment buddies...

The world is equalising..but not in the sense we all thought it would or should..

Anyway, I'm happy to see that at least Phos remains as optimistic as ever. :-)

I think the vomit-inducing bit is your teenage girl style of sycophancy for him.

The rest of my feelings towards the whole sorry affair are based around realism with a healthy dose of perspective.

But you carry on, it's kind of cringingly funny in a "Benny Hill chasing girls" kind of way.

au contraire!
They are probably fiercely debating how much secret information they dare to reveal to Trump that he will later tweet to the world

It takes the second bottle of vodka or third bottle of Shiraz to make me throw up, so good luck with that!

I intend to continue to visualise you as a crossdressing cheerleader wearing a pleated, yellow mini skirt, tiny knickers up the crack of your arse and short, fat hairy legs.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Lefties are like stranded on a drifting and melting iceberg. I don' even know what case they have anymore other than some imaginary pussy grabbing incident. I'm sure they will try to invent more delusions over time.

if Trump only delivers on more opportunities for the Democrat's hostages (e.g., blacks, latinos, women, etc), it would decimate the DNC and drive them further out to the fringes.

Lefties are positioned to be toyed and trolled with to oblivion at this point. It could be a great source of entertainment. Their only hope is for a major Trump screw up, which I'm sure they are praying for, and they would be ecstatic to see one. Soon enough, many of them will start to realise they have aligned themselves with the dark side all along. Well, some of them need to grow up at some point in their lives. And we know some never will.
