Thus, we conclude that a man is speeding through traffic because he is a maniac, when perhaps he is a loving husband racing to witness the birth of his first born child. 


There is no fundamental attribution error in this example; even a loving father can be a maniac ... only a maniac would put countless people on the road in danger by speeding through traffic just because he thinks his own issues in life are more important than other peoples safety.

And than perhaps that's where Trump finds himself; he's a hot headed maniac who thinks his issues are most important and so it justifies putting everyone else in danger...and so people are calling him out for it ... no FAE required.


The only redemption Trump may have is that his issues ARE more important than other peoples safety and well being and if so his hot headed maniac personality will be justified... we wont know if this is true for a while so until then you and he will just have to put with with the ill treatment.

With a "small" loan of a million dollars and a silver spoon in his mouth force feeding him opportunities left right and center.

Compare him to a humble person like Bill gates, Henry Ford, Rockefeller. His legacy is nothing compared to them, even if he is the current POTUS, his personal business was real estate, which failed half the time. He will be added to the list of presidents, from here on out, while Bill gates and Henry Ford, etc will be remembered for their contribution to humanity.


OK. Are you going to go with Gates, Rockefeller and Ford as your standards for rich people contributing to humanity?

I'm sorry, but all those people I mentioned started off with humble beginnings or literally nothing.

Trump was born into wealth, Ford, Gates, and Rockefeller did not, if anything they grew up in middle class. That's what I was getting at. People think Trump is the 'American dream', yea right, he was settup for success.

But, I guess at the end of the day he is POTUS; nothing more.

That’s a safe point. Until it is all over, we won’t know whether his administration had a net negative or positive effect. I wish we could say the same about the media.

Yes.
He is The President Of The United States Of America.
Not a politician.
You didn't think he could win.

So was Hitler. You don't have to be successful in order to be respected and just because you're successful doesn't mean you deserve respect, that is the most nonsensical argument I've ever heard. Lots of scumbags have gotten rich and successful off of screwing people over.

No, I knew he would win. In fact I bet a lobster dinner with my entire family and won. Stop assuming.

Trump was more successful by age 30 than all the whiners will ever be...even if they live to age 100. It is safe to view them, as nothing more than empty distractors.


If we could all only do nothing except be born to a rich ahole, and then be given the equivalent of ~7+ million (by today's measurement) by our father...

And yet still blow it repeatedly in a business capacity, have terribly tacky taste, cheat on wives repeatedly (although admittedly that happened after he was 30), admit to buying off politicians, engage in tons of shady business deals, develop an attitude and an ego that represents the worst in what Americans can become... eh, I'll pass on success. I'd rather be much poorer and be able to sleep knowing that I'm a decent person, both on paper and in my own head.


you forgot that he decided to run for President of the United States of America and won. I know, what an ass.
