Said the guy who literally just signed the biggest arms deal in history with Saudi Arabia.

Pointing out this insane level of hypocrisy isn't even a story anymore. How half you people ever believed a word that came out of this man's mouth is astounding. Ya'll got absolutely conned and made the other half pay for your stupidity.


You're right. President Trump is the first president (or politician, for that matter) to ever do or say anything hypocritical and Hillary Clinton is just a sweet innocent angel.

Look guys. I'm sick of trump. May he rot in hell.

His first 100 days are history, so I assert that it is counter productive to add comments to a thread about his first 100 days.

In an uncharacteristically optimistic mood, I invite discussion of his Final 100 days, which has hopefully now begun.

My champagne is in the fridge awaiting his resignation, impeachment, or untimely demise. I may crack the bottle open early if nukes start flying, but sure as hell will have another one ready if I survive the first volley of trump induced missile launches and I hear of one splitting its warheads twixt the Whitehouse and Mar a Lago.

I may offer side bets on whether I started the countdown too soon. In truth, I think that the wheels of justice will plod along at glacial pace, but that they will be as unstoppable as global warming.

Let this thread celebrate every step back towards sanity and democracy even if we are forced to accept that we will pass through a pretty dreadful Pence term on that route.*

*Who apart from Trump would want that w@nk3r Pence as VP or Potus? Surely not even the most conservative Republican. But, What the heck. Nothing trumps trump.

Oh. And as a side topic: Would it be preferable to have an ousted trump claiming some glory if that was the price to pay for having him out of power? Even Adolf still has a fan club.

Why can't we just get Trump rehab, therapy and an education, before giving up. He was onto some good ideas, just needs to focus and start screwing over people that screw the American people, making the world a better place. I'm afraid he's getting royalties on every screwing.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

Much of the answer can be found in Krugman.



Has Krugman ever been right about anything? He’s terrible, yet he’s the economist of choice for main stream media and their news for dummies.

Rejected By His Peers - Forbes

Here he is describing only five big things he got wrong. Business Insider

He’s been wrong about the European Union, the demise of the Euro, economic growth after the recession, effect of the stimulus on unemployment, and more.

Apocalypse Fairly Soon- NYT 2012

9/11 attacks could be good for the economy -NYT 2001.

He predicted global economic recession ‘with no end in sight’ if Trump was elected. Then the Dow gained 2,000 points, and the global economy remains strong.

The Economic Fallout - NYT 2016

What things has Krugman been very wrong About - Quora

What I keep pointing out is not that other politicians are not hypocrites, or don't lie, or don't break promises, or can't be trusted, but rather that Trump is taking it all to a whole new level. Trump wants to be #1 - I think he's making a run at it in those categories.

I think it's perfectly valid to hate Trump for many reasons. I've listed mine before, though he does keep adding to them, so i won't bore the forum with repetition.

But it's also important to know why, if you're taking that stance, you do. Can't be a mindless hater, just like you can't be a mindless supporter, with any credibility. I haven't seen him do one damned thing that I can honestly say, "good move" or "that needed to happen", and I've been watching.

Maybe some of you have seen things you think are better for the COUNTRY. So be it. But I would think a good many Trump supporters would be disappointed in what's actually been done so far and how much it's hurt those who are not rich or corporations. And if he has hurt your pocketbook or life, I hope you hold him accountable, because he's not governing for the rest of us, he's trying to hold his base voters together.

I think they're just auditioning to be the lead vocalists of a new screamo band.

LOL @ the last few seconds of the third one. Someone on video saying, "I do not consent..."

Since the election, illegal border crossings are down to a trickle, deportations of criminal illegals is speeding up, Mexico and Canada have agreed to renegotiate NAFTA, Toyota announced it will invest $10 billion in the US, Jack Ma has pledged to create 1 million US jobs by allowing small and medium US business to sell to China through Ali Baba's platforms, Japan's SoftBank has pledged $50 billion in US investment, Australian billionaire Anthony Pratt has pledged to invest $2 billion in the US 'due to confidence in Trump', the Saudis just committed to a $350 deal with the US, China has agreed to help US cattle farmers and purchase $2.5 billion in beef. For the first time ever, China has agreed to purchase tons of LNG from the US, the stock market has gained $2 trillion in wealth, for the first time ever, the 10,000 member MS-13 gang is being decimated, and for the first time since Truman, as US President has put North Korea on notice and not backed down.

After meeting with Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping referring to Trump warned Kim Jong-un, "He's not bluffing". Do you think he would have said that about Obama or Clinton?

Then he proceeded to back it up by suspending coal shipments from North Korea, and for the first time ever, China abstained from voting against a US position, by abstaining in the UN vote to condemn the US raids on the Syrian airfield after Assad attacked his own people with sarin gas.

Do you think Hillary could have achieved any of that?

A very good start.

I think Trump is willing to negotiate big business deals with any and all problematic geopolitical actors.. Saudis, China. Turkey's new President, Russia would certainly be in there already.

Think this won't be a bigger problem down the road? Think he'll get any real concessions while doing this from all these anti-democratic areas except empty promises? He's definitely going to be worse than Obama in that respect.

BTW, the big roundup of MS-13 was two years in the making. But then Trump claiming credit for stuff already initiated in advance is a given.

N. Korea hasn't stopped missile tests. How is that different?
