I have a sense of humor and appreciate it in others. Nothing about that was the least bit funny. It was pathetically pre-adolescent and my opinion of those who enjoy it is lower than ever. It may partially explain how those people who think on that level can pretend to have ethics or morals and continue to support a person like Trump, who has neither.

That was obviously intended as "humor", but on a pre-adolescent level so low that it could only be appreciated by those whose minds work in a way that allows them to believe that they have morals while continuing to support a person like Trump, who has none.

A sanction delayed is a .........
 
On at least a couple of occasions, Trump has delayed, for months, imposing sanctions against Russia that he was overwhelmingly directed by Congress to impose. It is these Magnitsky Act-type sanctions that have particularly irked Putin, since they directly punish the Russian olegarchs - i.e. Putin and his buddies - where it hurts them the most: in their pockets.
I wonder if anyone has bothered to keep track of the $millions ($billions?) in foreign assets that Russian olegarchs were able to squirrel away, thanks to Trump's very accomodating delays?

Wether Putin has dirt on Trump, or Trump wants to deal with Putin when he is out of the Presidency. Trumps subservient actions are disgraceful to the office of the President, and as an American representation to the world. He, Trump, played this subservience with Little Rocket Man (Kim Jong) in their summit. And now it is believed that Trumps lawyers leaked the existence of the Cohen - Trump taped conversation of paying off this woman he had a relation with after marrying Melania. The world, if not baffled, is laughing at the U.S.

Forgive me for not goose stepping along with the herd. Almost, if not this entire thread is Trump bashing. CNN made such a huge deal out of Trump walking in front of the queen that this satire is merely a poke at the outrage that is shown daily against everything this president does.

The Bee had an interesting story today about handing out participation trophies to millennial protesters because "as kids they never had to deal with losing as they were growing up.”

“It’s a foreign notion to them. Even in sports—win or lose, everyone won, and everyone got a trophy no matter what. This is the millennial way,” he said. “So I had the idea—hey, why not start handing out participation trophies to the protesters, and telling them ‘Hey, you know what? You may have lost the election, but look—everyone gets a trophy. Everyone’s a winner.'”

So you can continue to rant about how stupid Trump is and that's OK. I poke a little fun and it's not because I'm not in your club. As you rave about how stupid this man is, remember that he is a billionaire president and you are ranting on a computer.

I doubt very much that most of the people on here are millenials. Most came up the usual way, earning their trophies and you are talking utter nonsense.
Do you really think we should cheer Trump for being rich? Some standard of quality, eh? Of course, it might have helped a wee bit that he came up with a gold spoon in his mouth.

It's fine if Trumpistas want to cheer and adore him like groupies do for rockstars and famous athletes. It's just inappropriate, even dangerous to worship a cad who has by far the most inadequate curriculum vitae for anyone ever to occupy his position.

"Trumpistas" are just parroting what they are fed in the periodicals they read. Note how they quote them as opposed to putting forth their own independent judgment of what Trump is actually saying and doing. He's a traitor to all that the country has stood for, at least in theory.

That is exactly your problem and others of your ilk. You are only talking about who he is and whom he represents not what he does and what he says. If what he does and says pleases you so much then who he represents should not matter to us whom he does not represent which are so very obviously the informed, truthful and educated Americans - the citizens who did not vote for the con man and who installed a plethora of con men and con women to the highest federal government offices.

Zorro: "Forgive me for not goose stepping along with the herd."

What could be more of "herd" than a bunch of people who continue to support a man who has violated every code of conduct that they profess to believe in, who overlook any and all behavior and embarrassment he creates world wide for his country and who lies compulsively?
