This isn't about Obama, you are right, and you are missing the point once again, or rather, making points that have nothing to do with the issue.

It's not about previous presidents bragging about accomplishments and taking credit for successes. Not at all. It;s about a president who is more obsessed with, and concerned more about, his popularity and ratings than he is in anything that resembles coherent policy.

He's a Kardashian style president. That's the Trump Administration in a nutshell.

Trumps policy is quite clear from what i can see. This is just another tempertantrum thread by socialists making a big deal out of what turned out be nothing. We've seen video and pics of the event while it was actually going and even heard from a few who knew people in attendance.

Did trump break any records? Who cares! He sent a troll tweet and roped in a bunch of dopes. If trump is as concerned about his popularity as you claim don't you think he would do something about that? I mean since many of you claim he's just a snowflake, how would he ever stand a large group of people not liking him? Would he go on late night talk shows and brag? Make jokes? Create a like-able public image to take attention away from bad and weak policy that divides the nation? Syria? Yemen? Libiya? Mass migration? Rape crimes going through the roof on many of the countries excepting large amounts my migrants unchecked? Oh wait... 'but trump lied about the number of people that turned up to his event'!!

The comparison to obombya is completly valid as is comparing trump lying to hillary lying.

Trump cares if he breaks records or not, and that's all he really cares about. Big crowds and being "impressive". The rest of us? Nope. But damned, if that isn't half of what he blows on about.

I guess you could say his policy and direction are pretty clear now. His policy is to feed his ego, wipe his butt with the constitution and founding principles of this country, throw tantrums and threats when he doesn't get his way, enrich the high priests in his cult, sell us out to the Russians, and focus on media ratings. That much he's made clear in his first 100.

Sadly i have to agree. He does something and says look at me. And when he talks its always about the best starting to get annoying. Hes got the best of whatever hes talking about. He needs to cut it with the greatest crap and just do his job. And dont get me started on congress whos comming up on their second vacation and accomplished nothing,

Rant ended carry on.

i understand thats your opinion. opinions are subjective. whats not an opinion is how biased the media is which can be backed up with actual facts. and this just goes in the pile of the biased media blowing something completely out of proportion and nit picking with zero facts to backup their claim. this is why their numbers are tanking. ive yet to see one actual fact givin out that proves what he said was false. do u have one yet other then your opinion on him? cause going off the article they are refuting his claim based on the premise that because some nose bleeds were empty he must be lying. according to your own experiences at concerts, you have stated that people leave their seaets to try and get closer to the band. so again do u have anything of merit to refute those claims beyond your opinion of trump?

He won the election by the laws of our land, but he is still obsessing that he didn't win the popular vote. He has been handed the closest thing to a royal flush any president could ever wish for: Both houses of congress are dominated by his own party, the Republicans, and the majority of state governors are also Republican, but is crying over media criticism and because the minority, and mostly powerless Democrats, criticize him.

He has to be the worst "winner" in the history of elections. he has been handed great opportunity, yet squanders it by being petty and shallow. It's why his own party is getting tired of him, and is opposing him probably more than the useless Democrats are.

Again, is the term "Trumpkin" meant to be an insult?
That's a fairly simple question.
I don't think so? I like the fact that the colour of his man-tan matches up with our favourite cucurbita and this little sobriquet rhymes with it so nicely. So I think it's more so than the fact that it also rhymes with bumpkin, which, while it reflects the rural roots of many of his minions, might also be construed as an unpleasantry.

That is kinda problematic for me, because I see a concerted effort for folks on either side of the tangerine trench to develop a genuine animosity for each other through name-calling and epithets. It's a divisive force and no good can come of it. As much as I've been trying to avoid falling into that trap...because it really does feel like manipulation...sometimes I slip, and words like Trumpkin enter the discourse.

So I suppose that means if the word Trumpkin hurts your feelings and makes you feel bad, I'll stop using it.

Thanks for asking.

So he had a good turnout at a political event where media tried to show a low attendance and failed yet again, and suddenly hes all about crowd size? Breaking records? Yes im sure he's happy so many turned out, but that doesn't make him all about it. As much as i hate to admit, mccain was right. Its his actions not his words that matter. The tweet thing isn't new. Hes been doing it for a long time. Stop getting sucked in by it. This is completely irrelevent nit picking.

Now attacking syria without any confirmation was stupid, but at least it was a direct action and not using terrorist groups to help start a civil war to achieve a leadership change to someone more supportive of american ideals and priorities. Get mad at that. You should. But to get all emotional about "crowd size" and "breaking recoreds" tweets isn't helping the lefts cause.

Your ability to hurt my feelings is way above your pay grade, sport.

I'm a big believer in free speech, so by all means, say anything you want. I couldn't care less.

Just be honest and answer the question: is it your intent that the term "Trumpkin", as used by YOU, be meant in a derogatory manner?

I thought I made myself quite clear, I find it a merry little epithet. Is it a pejorative? How do you perceive it? Like I said, if it makes you sad, I can retire it. Meanwhile, let's just say it is no more insulting than 'snowflake'.
