Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Weak, 22 yards. I was just watching a senate confirmation meeting, and I have to say those guys are at least as sharp as a tack.

I think you folks have a grandiose delusion that you are smarter than those politicians, Trump included. Cruz just kicked Franken's ass.

What the hell is the Commission on Vaccine Safety? Anyone ever heard of such a thing?
A new commission created by Trump -- my guess is that he wants to discredit vaccines, given the staggeringly ignorant stance on the subject that he has displayed on more than one occasion, and thinks that a pseudo-scientific commission headed by a fellow efficacy-denier will pave the way to achieve this aim.

I didn't know that Trump had nominated either of those sharp tacks Cruz or Franken for positions in his government.

I thought Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is a progressive environmentalist, or a heroin addict, or one and the same. I don't know of anyone calling for the elimination of vaccines, nor of any such commission. But go ahead and get outraged about it. Its part of the comedic value.

So tell us, Phos, how this nutcase conspiracy theory proponent who believes that vaccines should be banned is going to MAGA? Presumably that's an America just for the existing population that has already been vaccinated, and not an America for the next generation (or at least, as many as survive into adulthood)?
Nominee of an entire nation for the Darwin Awards..?

You really do come across as staggeringly ignorant at times.

Unfortunately it may be the former, as the intelligence operative was supposedly hired by supporters of Hillary Clinton -- so if s/he had dug up dirt on Trump, one would expect it to have been used in the lead-up to the election.

No, it's staggeringly clever. When it all goes to shit over the next four years, it won't be much of a leap for the fan club to blame everyone except themselves.

It was everyone else's fault that it failed because the media / libtards / snowflakes / EF kept asking uncomfortable questions from the get go.

Prepare the ground now - it's going to need to look convincing.

Let me get this straight: Phos hasn't heard of a commission proposed by Trump, therefore it does not exist. Is that about right?

More accurately, Phos is ignorant and uninformed, and does not take any steps to educate himself. This allows him to wallow in his lounge chair and act the tough keyboard warrior, without fear of publishing anything vaguely meaningful.

Here, you probably only believe what's in the Guardian. There is no Commission on Vaccine Safety:

I hope you didn't lose any sleep on it.

Just a point to note which has been proven time and time again on the thread:

Information which chimes with Phos' views = celebrated as cold, hard fact.
Information which goes against Phos' views = made up bollocks with a token leftie insult.

The game is easy (and vaguely predictable)...

You missed quoting this point in today's Guardian;
Quote:
Senator John McCain passed documents to the FBI director, James Comey, last month alleging secret contacts between the Trump campaign and Moscow and that Russian intelligence had personally compromising material on the president-elect himself.

The reports are being investigated by US Intelligence; you know, thos epeople that Trump made such good friends of

The material, which has been seen by the Guardian, is a series of reports on Trump’s relationship with Moscow.

This whole topic is like a circus set in Alice in Wonderland.
