But that's not the presidents quote. That quote is from one of the presidents handlers tasked with untwisting the presidents Alzheimeresque comments. When trump made the original statement a camera panned to Melania and she gave the president a baffled look. Once again Trump says one thing when he really means something completely different. I need to order one of them fancy Trump decoder rings so I can understand his riddles.

OP here Mr. Guitar. I guess that you must have missed my reply to Burd earlier. Burd's reply was easily expected as it is a standard reply used by many here to de legitimize peoples ability to evaluate others. This is the 21st Century and this is not rocket science. Even a few courses in psychology and neuroscience can allow anyone to develop even simple skills in understanding human behavior.
And how about poker players. it's not all luck you know or just card skill. Any good poker player knows that people have what they call ''tells''. Tells are characteristics that can give away almost the exact type of hand is being held and once knowing this can manipulate that player to over play or fold their hand. Simple stuff.
Did you know that now it is studied that experts can tel what is going on in another persons mind by the simple twitch of an eye or the flick of a facial muscle, let alone the positioning of their arms or legs??
Of course if you did not know all of these things I suppose it would be simple to think that Trump was unknowable just by watching him on TV. But if you do know this already, then why do you believe that I do not have at least a rudimentary ability to evaluate the characteristics of an open book like Trump.
Because until you’ve met him for yourself, you only know what the media wants you to know.
I kept my answer simple for you, but there’s a lot of knowledge between the lines
PS. Everything you just mentioned about posture, poise, muscle twitches etc, is just pseudoscience only good for confirming your own bias. You will find what you are looking for

You never seemed to care when Obama or every other politician lied, which president didn't lie? Please quote me "lionizing" lying as a quality.

Don't underestimate the power of political wives.
Look up the role Lady Mountbatten played during the partition of India, particularly her very close work with Jawaharlal Nehru. Then imagine Melania doing something similar.

If psychologist Bandy Lee can diagnose Trump over TV, and assess
his supporters have potential mental issue without meeting any
....... Then ya I'd say FLOTUS can get to know Kim.

I don't think Trump cares what we think as much as what Kim thinks. If Trump can make Kim believe it, he is one move ahead in the chess match.
