The Trump Years- Every day something more shocking than the last!

Recommended Posts

Day 1-Press conference making sure that you all know that the small inauguration photos were a result of the media
"framing" in order to make the crowd look small. In fact, this was the largest inauguration turnout ever. No questions,
just believe me. Thanks. We move on.  :wall:

Day 2-KAC goes on Meet the Press and refuses to answer Chuck Todd's question about why the lies in the press
conference, explaining them away as simply "alternate facts" and threatens that they may have to re-evaluate their
relationship with Todd/NBC.

Day 3-Spicer has temper tantrum and begs press only to report positive things about Trump administration.

Day 3 UPDATE!!! -Trump lets us all know that he only lost the popular election because 3-5 million people illegally voted for Hillary! He's winning BIGLY!

Day 4-Trump orders scientists at the EPA and Dept. of Ag to no longer communicate with the public. Mum's the word!

This is news now.

Just Trump non-news after Trump-non news. Every reporter trying to get their Trump 'story' picked up and run with. You can't get any lamer.

 

Yes you can.  The President holding a press conference to prove that his inauguration was the largest ever despite clear evidence that it wasn't is much lamer.  It doesn't even matter how many people attended, but since it damaged his ego it is #1 top priority in his mind.

So embarrassing.  With everything going on in the world. With all that Trump said was wrong with America, and all he was going to fix.  This is his priority on his first day on the job.

 

It's so sad.  I have to imagine that the people who voted for him even have to feel a little regret at this point.  I mean, jesus.  You can't make this stuff up.

He seriously has to have about a one inch peener. Has there ever been a more insecure and childish human being? Has anyone in public life ever been so obviously over-compensating?

Tomorrow's press conference: "It's not a hair piece.  Here up on the screen we have the report from the President's doctor, confirming that it is in fact real hair."

Pretty sure that they're just still thrilled that they have a President who hates brown people just like they do.

Hardest hitting issue for Wednesday: Hand size measurements confirmed.  "After consulting his doctor I can confirm for you that the President has the biggest hands of anyone in the United States.  The press has, of course, been lying to you again.  Sorry, no questions."

Someone let me know when your own life is any different than it was in October. Until then, go outside and take a deep breath of fresh air. It will help. 

I turned on the news and was a little more embarrassed for our government than I was in October. Not sure if that counts.

2 million people in major cities did that today and Republicans seem to think they should go to Saudi Arabia instead.

It's all smoke and mirrors. Tell the public about something dumb, people talk about it and behind the scenes the real stuff happens with little fan fair. Five hours to the real "fake news" and a blurb to the real news. People call into question the real news because it goes against what the mouth said. Before you know it, sweeping change takes place with little debate. Revisionist history becomes the present.

How does Hillary ever make peace with the fact that she lost to him?

Or does she have similar powers of denial that protect her from unpleasantness?

Super embarrassing.  She must just tell herself the country is so screwed up.  But really, she ran a really crappy campaign and was cocky.  She got what she desrved.  Maybe the rest of us did too.

Well I'm sure she's pretty shocked about miscalculating the number of racist, idiotic, and/or mentally ill people in this country.

Because anyone who doesn't share your beliefs is either an idiot, a racist or both. Seems like this pattern will be repeating for a while.

I'll let you know when I see the first change due to a new economic policy. I manage product development teams here and overseas. If Trump's trade positions are adopted, it's likely that I won't hit my cost or margin targets, thus affecting my compensation.  So, yeah, the rejection of globalisation is a threat to my livelihood.

All of us, if we are of reflective habit, like and admire men whose fundamental beliefs differ radically from our own. But when a candidate for public office faces the voters he does not face men of sense; he faces a mob of men whose chief distinguishing mark is the fact that they are quite incapable of weighing ideas, or even of comprehending any save the most elemental — men whose whole thinking is done in terms of emotion, and whose dominant emotion is dread of what they cannot understand. So confronted, the candidate must either bark with the pack or count himself lost. … All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.
The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

Guess again, guy. I made my opinion on Hillary abundantly clear around here. Of course, you are a Trumpkin -- you just didn't have the balls to say so openly until after he won, which is utterly hilarious.

His ego was damaged yesterday and so he retaliates today. Nothing is more important to Trump than Trump. Can't believe so many people fell for his con that anything else would truly matter. But this is who he's always been. 70-year-old rich elitists don't change their stripes. Just gonna be four years of this type of juvenile behavior. This is what the people and prominent Republicans wanted and now all of us have to suffer. Not like he was hiding any of this behavior before.

I don't know who the actual ones are in that party anymore. I just know there weren't enough of the prominent ones to oppose him. And many who claimed they would before the election are sucking up to him now.

What's hilarious is that you think I'm a "Trumpkin" and that you think insulting 50% of the country is perfectly fine.  Seems like someone is not taking this very well.  It's almost as if you're being a sore loser.

Don't you see this has nothing to do with crying. It's an embarrassment. It's pathetic. Can you honestly not see that??  What the hell is wrong with you?

Way less than 50% of the country voted for him you doofus. And yeah, anyone who did is an idiot or a bigot, and I'll be more than happy to say so here or anywhere else.

As far as you go, you've been gloating up a storm and patting yourself on the back for two months. So... yeah.

I feel bad for you - lashing out at everything and anything because you can't handle it.  You better get back to your safe space so your delicate self doesn't get anymore upset.  Try some warm milk to see if it will help calm you down.

And if you need someone to talk to, I'll be there for you (these five words I SWEAR to you).
