Not only did she cough, but did so for minutes on end before spitting the biggest loogie. ...



According to The Internet doctors (at least here on ATS) Hillary's health was terrible and the prognoses was that she would be dead within the next 6 months due to the epileptic, absence seizures caused by early onset Tuberculosis.

There was however a miracle. In such a way that during her first interview, almost exactly 6 months later, Hillary appeared to have made a full recovery.

During the almost hour of talking she didn't cough once. As a matter of fact she didn't even touch the glass of water next to her. Amazingly, just like that thing I picket up in Thailand some years ago, Hillary refused to die.

Hindsight is always 20/20. So I guess, we can revisit this question about Trump in about 6 months to check on his health?

This is weak dude. There is one good bit where he looks like he got confused and the rest is trash bin stuff.

You cannot even begin to answer the question of what is the reason for anything to do with Trump without asking yourself why Trump is even president in the first place.

Believe me folks. This was no accident. I don't believe for one second that anyone gets to be POTUS without it having been planned 100%. If you disagree just think about it for a sec. The POTUS is the most powerful person on the planet. The notion they're going to leave that job wide open for anyone who can convince enough people to vote for him is absurd on the face of it. It's just absurd!

We are being manipulated and that's all there is to it. For what purpose is the real question. WHY have they put Trump up there and what are they really up to? And when I say "they" I mean everyone who is anyone. Including the Democrats and the MSM.

The sniffing was debunked way back during the campaign.

It wasn't debunked it was just masked with BS excuses. Ever wonder why Trump is up at 3 on twitter making a fool of himself? Do you know what a BOOF is?

The microphone was set up wrong and was not filtering out breathing sounds. Thats it. selective memory is fun huh?

Wait, we're in the Mud Pit? So we are... please forgive me.

Libtard, Repugnican, Democrap....

I feel better now.

I've seen this argument being used very often in defense of Trump. "He's new to it." Was it Paul Ryan that said this as well? Yes, that's true. But so was every other president in the history of time. One might argue that he's new to politics. Yes and no. The business world is pretty much the same as politics.

Yes, Paul Ryan said it, among others.

In many ways, you are right: there are many parallels between the business world and the political world. But there are also differences. That honesty about the profit factor is a huge one. In business, it is rare for someone to put personal ideologies above profit; their job and livelihood depend on profit. But in politics, it takes more than money to keep one's job. It takes votes, and while money can make it easier to appeal to enough people to get elected, money cannot guarantee victory. There's always someone on the other side with a damaging message. Witness the huge differential between Trump's and Hillary's spending in the 2016 election, or Ossoff's loss in the recent Georgia special election. Both times, the one who spent the most lost. In politics, ideology is as important to one's livelihood as profit.

That means that in politics, one must bring more to the table than the ability to profit. Indeed, in the crazy political climate we in the US are having to endure, oftentimes there is no possible way to work a deal because one has the wrong letter next to their name. The healthcare fiasco is a good example of that: despite calls for bipartisan input, the Democrats have openly stated they will not participate, simply because they want nothing done to fix the problems with Obamacare.

The backstabbing as well is new to Trump. Whereas such happens in the business world, it is typically done for profit motives. In politics, it can happen just because of party affiliation. The degree of damage that can be done is also greater; instead of losing a few million bucks, one can be completely destroyed in politics. Look at Newt Gingrich... he did nothing deserving of a trial even, but was indicted by an attorney for tax evasion. The charges were so flimsy that they were never pursued, but just the indictment was sufficient to remove him from office.

So yes, he's having to learn a lot of new ropes. Those are new dynamics for Trump.

Fair enough. I'll put it in a way you'll understand.
Given n ≥ 3 let a 1 , a 2 , . . . , a n ∈ Z satisfy three conditions:

(i) a 1 , a 2 , . . . , a n are pairwise coprime
(ii) a 1 + a 2 + . . . + a n = 0
(iii) no proper subsum of a 1 , a 2 , . . . , a n equals 0

You have created an interesting premise... what is the argument?

The difference between you and Trump is you said...

A part of this also goes back to the argument I made above. Trump has had so many things (pun intended) that he has said come back in a twisted reincarnation to bite him, I expect he is self-censoring, trying to strike a balance between open and full communication and giving his detractors ammunition.

Example: during one of the Presidential debates, Trump told Hillary "If I were President, you'd be in jail." After his election to office, he decided to not push for further investigation into her *ahem* questionable practices. That decision was probably based on an analysis of the time and money such an investigation would require compared to the immediate benefit to the nation. But the same people who were horrified that he would make such a 'threat' then turned it around and began exclaiming how Trump had gone back on a campaign promise!

Another one: Trump tweeted that Comey "had better hope there were no tapes of the meeting" between them. He never stated there were tapes, yet immediately there were calls to have the nonexistent tapes subpoenaed, and to investigate why Trump was wiretapping his own office. We now know it was a carefully worded bluff designed to limit Comey's willingness to lie... there were no tapes.

Is it any wonder that the man is self-censoring?

You might expect Trump to get the job done. However he still has to be presidential. He has the perfect opportunity to convince the opposition that he is the right man for the job. He want to convince the good ol' Americans that they should pick him for a second term. Running your mouth and burning bridges as far as you go is NOT helping your case and in the end it hinders the actual job. If he spent less time picking fights with the media, White House staff, the general public, etc., etc. he will actually have time for the job he needs to do and be able to play golf without feeling guilty.

Technically he is being 'Presidential.' Since he is the President, whatever he does is by definition Presidential.

If you mean he conducts himself differently from previous Presidents, then I agree with you. However, I will repeat what I said earlier: doing things the way recent Presidents have done them has not worked out well. Perhaps a change is needed.

Trump has paid great respect to many leaders, and it has worked out well IMO. Jordan is providing temporary shelter and protection for Syrian refugees. China has adjusted their stance toward North Korea. Mexico is ready to renegotiate NAFTA. The Queen has invited Trump to Buckingham Palace. Saudi Arabia rolled out the red carpet for him on his recent Mideastern visit, and now has established an Arabice coalition against Qatar for supporting terrorism. Trump has made friends internationally among those nations who are willing to be friends. For those nations whose only desire is to use the US as a money tree while demonstrating behavior antithetical to American values, we don't need friends like that. We need their respect, yes, but respect does not come from acting weak.

i wouldnt say that trump thinks deeply and I dont...just my opinion but I dont think he thinks too terribly deeply.

So now your're further "clarifying" your post?

Also, millionaires are not automatically smart. He had money to hire smart people to do all the work for him.

But he must have been smart to hire the right "smart" people to do the work for him. Otherwise he would have stayed a millionaire. You really should think your thoughts through.

Perhaps it is as simple as B12 deficiency which can cause bouts of mental fog. Or even more, anxiety which can also be symptomatic of B12 deficiency. Personally, my anxiety attacks tend to come while driving and the ol' "sighs" (shortness of breath - kind of) come on or when I'm eating. When anxiety attacks occur while eating I tend to jump up and wander off. I normally play it off like I'm going to the bathroom. I'm sure it looks strange to everyone who sees, but it is what it is. It takes some real ognitive effort to keep or quickly re-establish composure.

Not saying that's what is happening to Trump, but maybe.

Most likely he has a million things on his mind and just wasn't really paying attention to where he was going. Much ado about nothing. And it's not like the Hillary situation, she was stumbling and falling and had to be helped/carried, let's at least be real about the differences in the situations.

Perhaps it's best we keep my Mama out of this.

Who cares? It's a non-story. You don't know the circumstances of the situation.

You think this is comparable to Hillary really? You mean the one where she is leaning on a pole and then appears to pass out/seize into the arms of SS before being loaded into a van?

You mean this video? You think what you've posted is remotely comparable? Laughable.

so this might be an easy one.
have you guys ever witnessed someone trying to open the wrong car, even though the car is not even the same model?

I think that is what happened here. Even at Andrews the presidential limo is escorted by all those black SUVs.. considering the limo is also black and actually almost as tall as the escorts, he may have simply walked towards the wrong one.

it's a shame there is no wide angle to prove this, but I believe that the limo was actually offset a little to his left so he only saw the front of it and mistook it for an escort
