Well how else would you explain his severe lack of knowing how the job works? All his opinions and the way he "governs" seems to all be exactly the same as the right wing media has been hyperbolicly saying the Obama has been governing for the last 8 years. It's almost like he believed that nonsense and figured, "hey Obama did, so can I!" without ever realizing that most of that # the right complained about Obama doing was exaggerations.

But if you have a better explanation for his severe lack of understanding of the position he pissed off over half the country to get then I'm all ears. You said it yourself, he's been alive through MANY different Presidencies and probably met a few of them. Why is his understanding of the job so weak? I haven't met a SINGLE President and am a little less than half the age of Trump (32) and I feel like I understand more of what it takes to be the President than Trump did before January 20th.

Trump: Worst. President. Ever.

Did you seriously just ignore the failed replacement of the ACA/Obamacare? Repealing or replacing the ACA would require new laws which is why Congress (aka the legislative branch) was involved in the first place. The willful ignorance is inexcusable.


Sorry, I guess the failure of Obama care has filled me with blind ignorance.

I can't say I'm fond of him. But, my main point is we don't need an amateur as leader of America. He is unqualified.


Hillary Clinton was destroyed in the debates by a so called "unqualified amatuer".
How does that qualify her. She isn't president because she belongs in jail. Gawd
get over it, she's a disgrace.

Define "always succeeds."


google it


I'm just curious what your definition is, because he has had a -great- many business failures. Google that - you'll find quite the list. Unless you are talking about his Presidency, in which some of his bigger ticket items have all failed, including the travel ban, putting in place a health plan, his tax reform so far looks pretty terrible as well. No ISIS solution in 30 days as promised. I doubt the wall will ever get built.

So I guess I am just confused as to what you consider success. All he does is succeed.. except when he fails?

Also I don't consider throwing a bunch of tomahawk missiles at Syria a success in any way, whatsoever.

Hey man! If you asked Raytheon they'd say the Syrian strike was HUGE success! They get to sell the government another $70M in cruise missiles. Cha-ching. Daddy needs a new pair of shoes.

Indeed. So that devastating strike on the Syrian airbase actually cost the U.S. Taxpayers $83M. But I'm sure either Syria will pay for them or they are self-funding.

No doubt there are many failures on any path to success. Call Donald Trump
an unsuccessful business man. Can you do that? And every young administration
suffers failures. I don't see Donald Trump screwing up anything that wasn't
already completely screwed up. Even in your mentionings.

I think he was just thinking out loud like he always has. I don't think any President (no matter how well he knew what he was getting into) hasn't thought to himself "This job is harder than I thought" at one point or another.

President Trump rarely says anything negative about former President Obama, but today Obama proclaimed that "Obamacare is more popular than President Trump." OUCH!

I see Obama still has Chicago-speak running through his veins.

Never mind fixing all those things he was going to fix, just don't screw anything up. Never mind bringing back all the factories. Never mind eradicating ISIS. Just don't screw anything up.

So, that's the level of the bar for Trump?

A candid, honest President is what we voted for, and quite frankly, what America needs after the last 8 years. Kudos to President Trump for wearing his heart on his sleeve.

You can't honestly tell me that is all that is going on can you? I mean REEEEEEEALLY?

And his Twitter account.

The man needs a filter. Saying whatever pops into one's head is not a good characteristic.

No Mr. Phage and I didn't say that either. But things don't happen in
the first 100 days of any presidency as I remember. I'm here hoping
for a good administration and see no reason to jump ship yet.

I really have trouble understanding under what logic Trump supporters can call Donald Trump "honest".

Probably not. But since he's human, imperfections come with the species.

He's the one who made the 100 day promises.
