Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

CNN tried to ask a question, and Trump said, "No, no, you don't get a question. You're fake news!" It is what it is.

Why are people harping on low quality media...I asked the same, about the quality of presidential candidates and the whole pre-election discourse.

Media deliver exactly what they what they know that people want to hear. Candidates deliver exactly what people want them to deliver.
CNN and the other fake media outlets just discredited their own credibility and debilitated their ability to to hold elected officials accountable. Clearly demonstrating an ulterior motive. Another symptom of retardation.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Yes, because we all know Fox News are the only ones with the truth and real news

Possibly the worst Press Conference - by anyone- ever

Compare it to Obama's farewell speech ... wow.

Although Mr. Trump refused to recognize CNN reporter Jim Acosta, angered by the network's reporting on the dossier of Russian allegations, moments later he did call on another CNN reporter, Jeremy Diamond.
Indeed it is what it is!

Well, I must say that I am with CNN on this one.

As a professional, non-partisan news organisation they were doing nothing other than correctly fulfilling their obligation to disseminate facts, no matter how controversial, to ensure that their readership, the general public, are kept fully informed of current events.

Secondly, the stories about Mr Trump's penchant for unconventional water sports were entirely plausible. Let's face it. As one gets older (and he is around 70), it becomes necessary from time to time to liven up a mundane ritual with a few new ideas. There will no doubt be many, even on this forum, who will, on hearing such reports, be saying to themselves, "There but for the grace of God go I".

Thirdly, these accounts formed an an important part of the evidence in the dossier that Obama commissioned at short notice from the intelligence services to support his hypothesis that a focus on Russian hacking in the election would be a sufficient distraction from the general failure of the Democrats to field a credible candidate and explain their subsequent loss of that election.

If that is not enough, there is also fact that the renowned British Intelligence Services also had a hand in compiling and validating the reports of the Mr Trump's exotic entertainment. I'd not be surprised if *"M" himself did not personally approve the release of this information.
*The hierarchy and workings of British intelligence are shrouded in secrecy but some insight is given thanks to the revelations by Ian Fleming in some of his published works.

So CNN will rightly emerge unscathed from all this.

Finally a true evaluation of the Obama years.

Obama goes out as the worst president in my lifetime, for Odile perhaps not but I doubt if Eisenhower or Truman were worse.

Has anyone heard of psychological projection?

It's Trump's way of practising safe sex.

I can't see Trump following a German roadmap. He admitted to being a Germaphobe.

Exactly, at the time he was a business man not a Presidential candidate so why would he care about hidden Russian cameras?

For example, In 2008, Max Mosley (Formula One racing king) won a court case (Mosley v News Group Newspapers) against the News of the World newspaper which had reported his involvement (with video) in a sex act involving five women on the grounds that it had breached his privacy.

Max Mosely got £60K in damages and the incident had no impact on his business career.
Some of the Mosely attendees were wearing German World War 2 uniforms which could be the source of Trump's Godwin moment?

Russia spread fake news and disinformation in Sweden

From the article
Quote:
The hacking of the Democratic Party e-mails in the run-up to the US presidential election has topped headlines around the world, and according to David Lindahl, a research engineer at the Swedish Defence Research Agency, Sweden should be prepared for the possibility that something similar could happen here ahead of the 2018 general election.

Only to change color permanently - a one time thing. Maybe for matching body hair.

If he dropped the wig on the gold bathroom floor, would he ever find it again?
