The question here that has been floating around, is what other President has ever made this big of a stink about anything that has been published about them or even reference to them?

If you think about it, in the past Saturday night live, makes fun of political figures, most either laughed or did not say anything, except for Trump. Anything that was printed, most presidents tend to not make anything of it.

But this President, this man, is trying to use his position to stop anything he does not like and attacks one of the very freedoms that we have, and enjoy.

In the span of a week, the book about dysfunction on the campaign trail and in the White House has become a huge bestseller.
At Amazon the top three sellers are respectively Fire and Fury’s hardcover edition, its Kindle edition and at No. 3, the Audible audio edition.


I guess Trump's tactics aren't working too well

Trump believes in eye for an eye.

You attack him, he attacks you right back.

You say something silly about him, he says something silly about you right back.

He is old testament.

I've never seen Trump "forgive" anybody for any slight against him.

There's nothing "too small" to respond to in Trump's world view.

That makes him look very unpresidential. Since Presidents are supposed to be above the "petty."

That is, until something is at a level that is "important" or "significant", the President isn't supposed to give it any attention, because supposedly, the President is busy with other "important" things.

Does the left actually think after the fiasco of the completely fake Trump Dossier this book even stands a chance of holding up to public scrutiny?

If the overall narrative of this book pushes "mental instability" or makes a single reference to the 25th Amendment then it will be crystal clear what the intent of the book is.

Yet one more in a long line of desperate attempts by the left to unseat a duly elected president by its citizens.

You guys really need to stop hyperventilating.

Trump is going to be your president for the next 7 years.

What's funny is you and your fellow Trump supporters jump in threads that criticize or rag on Trump in droves, you all come in frothing at the mouth in defense of Trump calling everyone triggered and my personal favorite from you hyperventilating.

Too funny, get a grip on reality already.

We do not know the dossier is completely fake. In fact, parts of it have turned out to be true.

We know what the intent was before we read a single word...to make money.

How does a book potentially unseat a president?



You guys really need to stop hyperventilating.


Who's hyperventilating?

I think you guys make more hub-bub about this stuff than anyone on the Left does.

In fact, I think it you guys that just can't seem to let this stuff go and let it ride itself out.

Obsession is a weird disease.

Could be and part of me hopes so. The longer he is in power and the more people such as yourself talk, the more likely it will be that us Americans will learn our lesson and not let the nuts run the nut house again.

And it makes him look like he is abusing his authority far beyond what it should be. I know that he would love to change the slander laws, and even start to curtail the first amendment as well.

Yo mate have you not been paying attention the past 12 months? The left has been throwing everything they can at Trump in an ongoing effort to remove him.

The Trump Dossier is total BS. "Parts of it are true" ? ...yeah ok I will give you that his name is Donald Trump. Ok...so parts of it ARE true. lol...

The book itself is not the single item to get him removed but will attempt to add to the plethora of made up BS the liberal PR machine aka the MSM has been pushing. It's an attempt to influence the general public.

You can try the weak reverse psychology all you want but I see through your feeble attempts. You can't claim the right is guilty of the very things the left initially perpetrated.

Hyperventilation...yep...the left is full of red faced, snot nosed, yelling at the sky liberals having complete and utter melt downs on a daily basis. From your virtue hilltop occupiers in Hollywood all the way to Mad Maxine in D.C.

Obsession? Really? Wow...MSM much? How many negative news cycles have there been on Trump since he announced his run for the presidency? Every single day mate. THAT is the definition of obsession.

Like I said...your reverse psychology attempts are amateur.

Oh and no way in hell does any part of you hope Trump will remain your president for the next 7 years. You've lied to yourself for long enough. Don't fill the hole in on top of yourself.

You need to brush up on your reading comprehension. My post in no way defends Trump. It makes fun of how naive, ignorant, and desperate the left are.

Wait a second. Are you implying that having twitter beefs with Vanity Fair magazine, NBA players, and former beauty pageant contestants isn't presidential behavior?

Wow. Literally "triggered" aren't you. "Leave poor Donnie alone! Free speech is only ok when we're screaming about Hillary or Obama!!
"

If the book is lies, he'll sue and win. Don't panic.

Bottom line is that you guys genuinely seem to think "firing back" with his petulant temper-tantrums every time someone calls him a mean name is a strength! Like it makes him tough!

Nope! It's literally the opposite. Weak, immature, petty squabbling rather than being an adult about it. Getting constantly defensive just makes him look childish. Weak, weak, weak.

As for all this "hyperventilating" stuff - your posts read like you're furious, hence trying to bait people into a similarly angry response.

I suggest you take some time off the forums if you're this upset over free speech.

a reply to: antiantonym>>> This book sounds like it was rushed to print to get a quick cash out before it gets ripped to pieces by fact finders and lawyers. Its already coming under scrutiny and being questioned. He'll get his money and then in a few years he'll give it back when Trump's lawyers get done with him. Or he'll retract what he said and it will be viewed as garbage fit only for the lunatic fringe but he'll still have made his money.

Nah, the author is overjoyed at the public response to his book, helped, of course, by Trump's public denials which only increases the public interest. The publisher probably pushed the book out faster to capture the initial jump in interest caused by all the commotion, and immediately contracted Wolff to write a second book. Meanwhile Wolff is feverishly working on Book 2, culled from his notes on things that didn't make it into Book 1, since now anything he writes will sell well, no need to cherry pick the best tidbits anymore, the public is obviously hungry for gossip on Trump.

It doesn't have to stand up to public scrutiny....Wolff has hours and hours of tape of Trump and his staff running their mouth.

The irony is that the Trump WH called Wolff in to document/archive... Trump transitioning into politics. Blew up in their faces.....

The one screaming at the sky appears to be trump. So much of a snowflake he is a snowball.

So first of all, he actually has to run and win.. it's a 4 year term. And second, I have a feeling he won't run again. Once he has accomplished his goal - undoing as much of the Obama administration as he can, he'll be done. Turns out he found, you have to do a lot when President! Cuts into his golf and leisure time badly.

I have a feeling probably about half the book is true - I've no doubt that Trump is a childish, vindictive tyrant within the White House proper. Working for him is probably a nightmare - and the crap Trump pulls via Twitter I'm sure, drives his administration nuts. They constantly have to smooth over his gibberish on a weekly basis.
