I am also non American and I don't believe he is unstable, he's just very good at being manipulative, but not a very good liar.

IMO Hillarys' irritating smugness cost her that election, not to mention Trumps fear campaign which is textbook Machiavelli. 'The Chinese did this,The Mexicans did that, and Russia did...I don't know what they did but they did something!' then he has the gall to call out "fake" news despite he has been caught on camera making contradictory remarks.

Trump is not unstable, he's just a fool.

I agree with the heart of your post. Still, I hate it when the left compares Trump to Hitler, Mao, Stalin and so on. So, I don’t like it on the other side either. I think it makes it look like those historic evil dictators were not even that bad, when they really where. When Trum or someone on the left actually killed millions of people, then go ahead and compare them.

But I repeat: I do agree with your point.

Ill say i think Trump is an idiot. We see over and over he misuses words not to mention can't spell. Only problem im not sure of is has he always been this way or is this a new development? im guessing that his mind is deteriorating because i dont think hes always acted this way. Now the funny part Hillary was such a bad candidate she got beat by someone who has difficulties even making a proper sentence. The one redeeming quality is i think he knows how to organize people to get things done. However after the op ed recently i may be wrong on that one who knows?

Trump is an entertainer. He knows how to get a crowd going and he knows how to market himself. He is a brand.

Hillary was/is the epitome of what's wrong with politics, She is unlikeable and only had a chance at beating Trump in the election which is pitiful to begin with.

The country was faced with two horrible choices and it chose the wildcard. They will probably choose it again if the next election the left doesn't find someone with some charisma. So far I haven't seen them come up with anything worth mentioning.

The Left in the US is screeching about Donald Trump that he in unhinged and emotionally unstable, so he cannot be President. Even calling for the invokement of the 25th amendement.
Fine, they have a right to an opinion... Even if it is an emotional opinion based on unnamed sources...

But if the Left is so up in arms about this, why not take a look at the 2020 presidential candidates on the Left?

Like Biden, ...


Maybe E. Warren? ..

Kamala Harris?


Don't get me started on Maxine Waters!

Crazy Andrew Cuomo?

Bernie Sanders who is about 161 years old in 2020?




Donald Trump is the only one on that list who has Officially declared their run for office in 2020.

Weird the only one you feel should not be examined as a 2020 candidate is the only one that is officially running for 2020?

Looking at the confirmation Circus, it is pretty save to say some are running... But in fairness, I agree they did not officially state this yet.
I just hope the Dems find an acceptable candidate. I think that will force Trump to ajust his behaviour to win the election. If one of the candidates mentioned in the OP runs against him, Trump will win.

A) No. Trump will not "adjust his behavior" for any reason. Those desperate hopes by the GOP that grudgingly backed him have been stomped to death daily since he was elected. The idea that a reasonable 2020 challenger will make him suddenly think "this is serious" and adjust his behavior is just not a possibility.

B) For everyone involved I hope we have better choices in 2020. I strongly suspect the Dem menu of options includes many that are intentionally flying under the radar until they have to officially declare. The risks of declaring early include drawing sustained fire over a long period of time. This OP and the general attacks on Warren, Booker and Kamala Harris are examples of early fire for anyone that even looks like they might run. There will be a large slate of Dems running in 2020 and most will fly under the radar until the last minute to avoid drawing early fire.

C) Trump is unpopular outside his base. The economy has a fever that is about to break. Mueller has an investigation to wrap up and I suspect the biggest scandals yet to come we probably don't see coming. It's early to make 2020 predictions.

It will be interesting. I wouldn't say that Booker or Harris can't beat Trump and I wouldn't say that is the official line-up, only those who are flirting with the spotlight early.

But when I compare his behavior to that of the Left 'leaders', he seems pretty normal to me...


Ok. So does that make his conduct reasonable or acceptable?

The comparison makes no sense, unless you are trying to deflect and excuse his actions because of the actions of others.

"Emotionally unstable?" You mean like when Trump won, and liberals curled up in fetal positions crying -- like they're STILL doing to this VERY day?

Yeah, you want to see "EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE," look NO FURTHER than his opposition...

Lol, "DURR, Trump hurt my fragile, delicate, feeeelings. IMPEACH!"

Unemployment so low, even Kaepernick found a job.

No. Not like the liberals. Trump is responsible for his own actions and deflecting on to others is illogical.

Not sure why you and others find it acceptable to bring such horrible and lazy arguments to discussions like this.

His opposition are Emotionally Stable, not emotionally unstable.
They are highly consistent in their disgust of Trump's rhetoric and behavior and the general idea that he soils the oval office daily to the extent where a random homeless squatter would show more respect for the office.

The US Economy is a massive ship that does not turn quickly and operates on momentum.

We are approaching a time where the economy will be fully Trump's to own, where the Obama momentum becomes less relevant. We are also very much in a fever state that will likely break. That is not political, that is reality. I would be cautious overplaying the current state of the economy since most economists predict a significant downturn before 2020. It won't be fun for anyone, but the more Trump lays claim to the economy, the more risk he will be granted it and own it if things turn badly before 2020.

I am not a political partisan. I am a person that is passionate about women's reproductive rights, equal rights for LBGT, compassionate application of current immigration laws, including refugee and asylum seekers, better public education in lower income communities and I'm strongly for criminal and prison reform.

These are the things that the politicians that you rail against in the OP are fighting for.

I'm particularly disturbed by the SCOTUS nomination, whose paper trail continually cites and relies on the unquestionable legal and moral authority of Merrick Garland. And I'm disturbed by how he's being pushed through by agenda driven Republicans, while the Democrat politicians you rail against in the OP, continually provide documented evidence as to why he shouldn't be confirmed.

Your OP, while claiming foreign non-partisan observations from a safe socialist space, sounds like it was pulled right out of Putin's handbook, doesn't address the issues driving the opposition mad, or the reason people, on both sides, percieve Trump actions as unhinged or how and why people are reacting to those very unpresidential unhinged reactions. You're just "dog whistling", by shouting out outspoken Democrats names, Democrats who passionately represent issues important to them and their constituents.





You, dear, are the very definition of a political partisan. Even you profile picture is meant to demonstrate that fact.Your thought process mirrors the political narrative that is being forced down the throats of the media consuming masses 24/7 in this country. You even brought the Russian collusion narrative into a rant about socialism, and women's rights (I don't recall where men now have more than women). Women's right are not under attack. I know the T.V. told you that they were, but the T.V. is not reality. Politian's do not thrive in reality, but in rhetoric and spin. That is how they hold power over people like yourself.

That's why there are parties. Because people align themselves with the parties that most represent their interests and concerns.

Very great OP Goedhardt


Unfortunately, as you can probably envision, our problems aren't going to get any better. Neither side is going to back down, and neither side appears interested in compromise - which is just as well, I don't blame patriots for refusing to budge another inch on any Constitutional right.

Over the years, mostly since the cursed turn of the 20th century, our Constitution has been largely subverted and we've witnessed the Legislative branch continually hand over power (due to laziness, stupidity, unworthiness to serve the public, etc) to the Executive branch (via its ABC "agencies") and the supreme court (which the left likes to abuse to set precedent/make law from the bench)

When it comes to free speech, absolute gun rights, freedom from government intrusion/search/surveillance/general nuisance, etc I have no interest in compromising. The only compromise I support at this point is "agree to disagree" which incorporates the non-aggression principle and an extremely limited/true Constitutional government but only after a balanced budget amendment is passed preventing these pols from continuing to rack up public debt in the name of all Citizens.

We have quite a task ahead of us, but I believe Trump's election was a great first start. Together, we're going to dismantle the administrative bureaucracy, grossly reduce the size/scope/impact of government and generally restore liberty wherever possible (even at the expense of bas###d "safety")

It's interesting to note that if this post were anti-Trump, written by someone who wasn't American, every one of you that's commending this post would rip it apart because the person who wrote it "would have no idea what they're talking about", "shut up about the politics of a country you don't belong to", etc etc etc. But when the message conforms to your beliefs, it doesn't matter at all where they're from.

Maybe we should afford the same opportunities to everyone, rather than just the people you agree with.

Which is very unfortunate, since the Democrats stand for a number of issues I care deeply about. True liberalism is the recognition of personal freedom, individual rights and generally expanding Constitutional protections (vs. trying to give government even more power than it already has)

But I would never vote for a candidate whos party that believes the most pressing issues facing this country today are "patriarchy" and "racism" - I don't buy that identity politics crutch, not one bit.

It would be interested to see someone on the left actually articulate their views for a change, instead of lazily assigning themselves a neat little label (preferably 4 letters or less) and wrapping it up with a neat little make-believe perpetual-victim bow.
