The question before the forum (tho hell knows it's been answered by the man himself over and over again) is 'Will Trump be a Good President?' lets see what the experts think

"The Siena College Research Institute (SCRI) Survey of U.S. Presidents is based on responses from 157 presidential scholars, historians and political scientists that responded via mail or web to an invitation to participate"

Source

Summary - Spanky enters at 42nd, the only surprise is that it wasn't lower.

Interesting survey!

How does a president that's been gone for over 200 years suddenly rise to 1st place putting Roosevelt into 4th?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
During an episode last Saturday, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar's (D-Minn.) hijab was "indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution."

Her comments were condemned by Fox News leadership, which issued a statement saying Pirro had been reprimanded.

Now they announced Pirro's show for tonight has been cancelled
Source

Pirro has often been praised by Trump, stand by for a tweet storm!

Good to see some effort to quiet divisive voices in the US but far too late. If Spanky continues to stoke division in the country there is little other voices can achieve to heal and bring the country back together.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Who will take on Trump in 2020?

Jo Biden may soon join the race to stop Donald Trump from being re-elected. But who else has a shot at becoming the next president?

Joe Biden says he's running in 2020 - then corrects himself http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47601121

This is a fundamental confusion of how freedom of speech works in US. You don't shut others opinion by the rule of a mob, but present alternative point of views that are logical and convincing enough to render your opponent's arguments mute.

P.S. Joe Biden is always running , he is a running joke in US.

The concept of free speech in the US means that the government can’t curtail one’s speech.

However private organisations can set their own rules and like, in this case, can take action when lines are crossed.

So suck it up!

BTW, Fox News is not a mob

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Coincidentally seems the President also supports free speech

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of “the other side.”
Like an advertisement without consequences.
Same with Late Night Shows.
Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this?
There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia!
Such one sided media coverage, most of it Fake News.
Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52%, 93% with Republicans. Sorry! #MAGA
He would not be posting this if he truly believed in his approval ratings.

Edit; Forgot the best part, Saturday Night Live yesterday was a repeat from Dec. 15!

Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro.
The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country.
They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox .....

Except Trump doesn't present logical and convincing arguments. He spouts "alternative facts", utter nonsense, and outright lies to misdirect attention. He's very good at it, and the media eats it up and comes back for more. His ability to simultaneously manipulate the media while bashing them is impressive.

Ratings would cave if Trump woke up tomorrow, gave up Twitter and started acting like an adult. Boring!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

To be fair, we are not talking about Trump, we are talking about MSM and how the left-wing mob is organised via soc. media to scream 'racist', natzi' , 'white supremacy' at anyone they disagree with in hopes to financially defund the public speakers or media channels.
The protections of first amendment in US will not allow the left-wing mob to legislate speech like they have successfully done in Europe and Canada. So they are choosing another avenue and that is trying to shut down anyone who does not comply with prescribed leftists doctrine.
They will eventually fail (they always do) as their actions manifest general crysis of their ideas.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

When there are shooting attacks on schools Trump says "Arm the teachers".
When there are shooting attacks on Mosques why doesn't Trump say "Arm the Imams?"

32 tweets by Spanky yesterday

Lucky he does not have a full time job to take up his time

I suspect there must be something big brewing up that is driving his panic?

You may need to calm yourself as it affects your coherence and writing.

If you think this is an echo-chamber you did not watch or watched without paying attention. They actually disagree with each other on various topics right in this video.
If you still think they represent some intellectual monolith vastly different from yours, would not that represent an opposing view worthy of exploring? After all these are not people screaming Racist in response to your viewpoints, so it might be worth a listen.
