1. Without a teleprompter can't put together a coherent thought
2. Keeps on keeping on with the war machine (and feeding the MIC beast)
3. Tells it based on petty and fear-based emotion... not at all 'like it is'
4. Is an asshole, which is never good. You can be plenty blunt without the assholery.
5. Is constantly acting like a pussy in all his complaining, name-calling, and reactionary spaz-outs
5. Still isn't getting anything done.


It look's like he has run afoul of your speech and thought crimes. That's snobbery, not much more.

Not working? The only people complaining are Bernie Bros, Hillary lackeys, Millennial Socialists and the media...and you.

1. Without a teleprompter can't put together a coherent thought - BS opinion
2. Keeps on keeping on with the war machine (and feeding the MIC beast) - Heard from Syria lately?
3. Tells it based on petty and fear-based emotion... not at all 'like it is' - Truth is scary and hurts..I know snowflake...
4. Is an asshole, which is never good. You can be plenty blunt without the assholery. - Sure you can and no one takes you seriously
5. Is constantly acting like a pussy in all his complaining, name-calling, and reactionary spaz-outs - Calling people out is not being a pussy
5. Still isn't getting anything done - A flat out lie....

You are entitled to opinion and vote Biden/Warren in 2020 if you want. I will love the second election results better than the first.

It's a little harder to be a jerk and motivate people.

It's easy to be a jerk and be authoritarian.

Problem is when you take away the authoritarian the idea dies. Which is why inspiring and motivating people through themselves is better for society. Like Reagan and jfk..


Trump has done a great job motivating people, particularly voters. His track record in candidate endorsements is very impressive. And Trump has done a good job motivating politicians as well, aside from a few hard line Globalist Repubs who have no interest in putting America First, the Republican party has totally rallied behind Trump.

Trump gets sh*t done instead of worrying about theory or procedure. This is the difference between an entrepreneur who has run businesses/built things versus egg head policy wonks.

On a construction site, no one is concerned with your feelings or that you got dirt under your nails. They just want whatever job done.

I knew Trump was not "polished" going in.

Obama was all polish...

There are two types of people in this world, those who get dazzled by the polish and think it's the most important thing, and those who can see through appearances and care more about the true intentions of the individual.

The easiest criticism of Donald Trump is that he is not presidential.

Define presidential
All I ask.
Bet you meant as "royalty"
Aint gonna happen
No rules say that a President of the US has to behave as the Queen of England
Nothing.
Then look back through history at most Presidents
Most of em were a bunch of "cards"

I'd like a president that wasn't a giant asshole.
Would be nice


You're asking for too much.

Anytime anyone heard Obama speak it was heavily scripted and read off a teleprompter 95% of the time.
If people saw Obama sucking on a Newport and speaking to jz freely , they would be in for a big shock.

Trump is making it great, but also fun again

I can see why you would believe that.

I just disagree completely.

Anyone can act presidential. Anyone can refuse themselves in favour of propping up some caricature, so long as it is approved by a cynical press. But it takes a bit more fortitude to do what Donald Trump does.



You have misunderstood what many people understand by "acting presidential". Some of us still think it entails dignity, probity and moral leadership.

You're right, anyone can display these qualities. Leaders, however, must display them.

Consorting with porn stars, throwing tantrums on Twitter and shady business dealings that even Warren G Harding would think twice about don't cut it.

I'm asking why. There have been plenty of philandering leaders. None of Harry S. Truman's businesses were successful. Plenty president's had bad tempers.

So much emphasis on the president when the separation of powers tells us other branches of government are equally important. The legislative and judicial branch have done their fair share of damage.
