The Trump Presidency

Recommended Posts

30% now, by Election Day, who knows? of course this being the Atlantic, the story naturally is spun as "Trump Evil, Democrat Good". So it's a plea to those Trump-supporting apostates to straighten up and fly right before it's too late. Hopefully they'll see the light 😂

I’m sure that guy in the picture is a paid shill. I’m sure it gives trumpies goosebumps to see the 2-3 people of color in their audience at rallies.

I think 30% support suggests more than a few people😉

I don’t believe most trump polls, especially Rasmussen.  However, I can see where a good portion of people of Hispanic background that have been here for generations would vote for trump. To make this seem like a sea change and it is growing is delusional.  To me its a data point and they were able to reach and talk to older hispanics via phone lines.

Because we have Trump supporters literally saying things like Trump was chosen by God.  Is it still satire when it's real?

Exactly. That's why it wasn't so far fetched to believe this sign wasn't a joke.

wow.  Anyone who thinks that case was settled and Trump exonerated wasn't paying attention.  Mueller found dozens of contacts with Russians but couldn't make an air-tight case because he wasn't allowed to interview Trump and was lied to repeatedly by Trump associates and campaign members.  So the obstruction, which many on the right said was just a process crime, prevented the investigation from fully understanding the truth of the matter, and the media and the country seem to have just let that pass along with barely a peep about it anymore.  Obstruction is a crime for very good reasons.

 

This seems like a pretty significant development and hopefully helps bring attention back to what appears to be one of the most severe and impactful scandals in American history.

This is absolutely bonkers, crazy town style corruption from the President and it's barely registering with the public.  I don't even think it's possible to overstate the importance of the election in November.  If Trump is defeated it's likely the nation will eventually look at each other and say, "man, that was wild", but if he's reelected it validates everything that he's done to date and he will only get more bold in his second term.  Every election is important, but this one will cement the power and reach of the Presidency, one way or another, for generations.

I had to check the dates of the Iranian hostage crisis to explain the wild swings around year 3 of his presidency there.

 

But that is definitely a bad sign for Trump either way.  He is closest as of year 3 to George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.  And those two, one Republican and one Democrat, both have one thing in common about their reelection campaigns that none of the other four (two Republicans and two Democrats) have.

President Donald Trump pushed aside his acting director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire, because he was angry about a briefing to lawmakers that said Russia is interfering in the 2020 election to aid his re-election, current and former intelligence officials briefed on the matter told NBC News.

 

Now Trump is firing people for reporting facts to lawmakers.

Nevada Pro-Trump activists used same day registration to become Democrats, voted Bernie and switched back to Republican.

Now tell me that Trump doesn't want to face Bernie.

And how in the world is this allowed?

Ken - open primaries have traditionally been a good thing. Even in OP's, though, most people vote with their parties, as they care more about ideological agenda items than anything else. That's not the case when your support is a cult of personality, not a political movement

I know it's so 2017 to talk about how unprecedented all this is, but he continues to attack juries, including jury members, federal judges by name & now individual SCOTUS justices.  And- for the umpteenth time- not one damn Republican is brave enough or cares enough to say, "Enough"....

Trump:

 

-proposed big CDC and NIH cuts

-killed a USAID pandemic detection program

-fired the entire pandemic chain of comman

-still hasn't put anyone in charge of coordinating Coivd-19 policy

-seems mostly concerned about the stock market re: coronavirus

 

Not great!

There is an interesting split happening in trump world. Trump is obviously terrified of the virus potential pandemic capabilities but absolutely banking the Chinese will resolve it. Rush is pushing the presidents viewpoint that this is not a big deal at all and people are making up the amount of deaths that are happening in China in order to scare the market and hurt trump’s chances at re-election. In other words, Rush is trump’s Baghdad Bob. 
  The conspiracy theory zealots of the republican party are actually closer to the truth like Senator Cotton. He’s ballyhooing on twitter how he “called it” on his belief that the virus came from the lab in Wuhan.  It sounds like the bulk of GOP senators are much more aligned with preppers. Senator Shelby was questioning what the trump administration is doing to counteract the spread of coronavirus in a closed door conference. It will be interesting to see how many GOP Senators come out that this is a hair on fire crisis, like Cotton, or be mushmouthed backing trump’s hope like grassley. 
  This could create quite the schism as i’m seeing a lot of the breitbart type people hyping massive deaths in China as in 100-200k people. Since no one knows what is going on in China, it is best to see how Japan and South Korea are handling the crisis. In another month we should know how serious this is.

Trump has not directed flights into or out of China to stop.  CVOID-19 ("coronavirus") is considered more easily transmissible than Ebola.

You'll be surprised to learn this was false.  "Ebola only spreads through direct contact, such as such as through broken skin or mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, or mouth."

Ha! It's hard to find the words.  Am I missing something?  Is it normal for director level roles to be filled by under 25 y/o personnel finishing their bachelor's?

 

https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/484641-white-house-hires-college-senior-as-top-trump-official-report

Quote

According to Politico, which cited three administration officials familiar with the reported hire, James Bacon, who is currently studying for his bachelor’s degree, will be the office’s next director of operations.

 

As surreal as that first quote was, it was bested just a paragraph below:

Quote

He will also work closely under John McEntee, Trump’s former personal assistant who was fired in 2018 and recently rehired to head up the office, according to Politico.

"DarkandStormy, you used to be a conservative as recently as 6 years ago and even attended CPAC 10+ years ago.  Now you seem pretty progressive.  Why did you switch?"

Also, a supposedly serious conservative member of the forums here continues to push the conspiracy theory that PC police are out to control all speech in this country (the world, even?).

 

EDIT - this post doesn't exactly fit into one thread neatly.  If it should be moved to the Republican Party thread, that's fine.
