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

Recommended Posts

I do not approve of Donald Trump. 

Not coincidentally, I very much approve of the strategy to send Giuliani on all the news shows.

you guys have come to the conclusion that it was a photo op to pretend he's busy

I mean, that's obviously what it is.  Why pretend otherwise?

Why would you admit that?  Did you honestly think he was sitting at a desk in a suit signing important papers all day while in the hospital with coronavirus?  Do you understand what a photo op is?  No wonder this country is such a mess.

I have no idea what his condition is or isn't.  Again, I guess if you buy into all the theories that he's rapidly declining with his health then you would buy into this one.  Two pictures where one has a jacket on and the other doesn't isn't proof of a photo op unless you live in crazy conspiracy world.  No wonder this country is a mess

His health status has nothing to do with the absurd idea that this President spent the day working behind a desk.

Two pictures ten minutes apart in different locations with two different looks. The EXACT SAME items are on the table in both pictures. Come on man.

I didn't say anything about his condition or his jacket.  It's obviously a photo op, you have to be really confused about how the universe works to not understand that.  This isn't crazy conspiracy world, this is the real world.  You're living in... something else if you can't see those photos for what they are.

That's the truly crazy part.  I've always wondered why politicians do these things.  Hard to believe it's because they actually work on some people.

One good thing Trump is doing: he appears at least by tweet to be pushing his party towards agreeing with the Democrats on a stimulus package. 

Its a little late, it’s being done for political reasons, and there’s no way to know if Trump can talk the GOP senators into this. But better late than ever. People desperately need help.

He's not going to be able to have this and the SC nomination get through unless they just take the House's 2 trillion package they just passed (again).

Is this like the pre 2018 election middle class tax cut that was TOTALLY going to happen?

Some of them even again appeared to be blank paper (as this administration has dome before).  Its not a crazy conspiracy theory...it seems to be a pattern with this POTUS to stage things.

Or acting like he supports it because he knows Mitch won’t budge.  Then can claim he was all for it...somehow still blame democrats and know that Mitch is in no jeopardy.

He’s beyond that sort of “don’t blame me” tactic helping him. He needs results.

Look at these 2 pictures less than 10 minutes apart

Do you normally change backgrounds and clothes 10 minutes apart?  You really don't see how it's an attempt to look like two completely different times as if he's doing well over an extended period of time that was photographed at various times of the day? 

He took a picture in one location, then moved to another one with a different background and a different table, put a jacket ON, and then took another picture less than 10 minutes later, while signing a blank sheet of paper.

Crazy conspiracy theory, I know!

Are you still interested in seeing President Trump get re-elected? Or have you and others given up on that possibility (which admittedly, is shrinking day by day)? 
I only ask because you seem to be cheering on events that will work against that goal.

You're confusing them with the two pictures thing.  Either of those pictures, taken alone, is a silly political photo op.  Every adult human knows this.

Did you read the part where metadata shows the photos were taken only a few minutes apart? With that fact, the conclusion seems reasonable.
