He's a fucking idiot.  There I said it.  He got a large portion of his support from the voters who support the Freedom Caucus.  He continues this and he will be voted out in 2020.

This isn't an attack on you, but you seem surprised now at his behaviour. What has changed about him from ten, twenty, thirty years ago?

Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) says the Russians hired a thousand "bloggers" to post things (undefined) and influence the election.  That seems to be his chief complaint.

How many of you Bellgabbers were influenced in your voting by our own "Canadian" poster 136 or 142? Do you believe that 1000-Russians posting on the Internet really influenced to election?

From the Panama papers, Podesta's emails and financial disclosures it appears at this point that the Russians probably phished Podesta because he and his brother were deeply in business with them. All the Hillary related stuff was simply a bonus they exploited.

You're still hanging onto the hope that the Russians didn't have anything to do with the election in any way then? Bless you. You'd better tell the Senate, the CIA, the FBI, the NSA and numerous other interested parties. I'd include the house intel committee but the Rep chairman is in hock to Trump and has cancelled all meetings indefinitely. Oddly no Trumpers on here have expressed any objection whatsoever to that behaviour. Or the fact he revealed there was a FISA  investigation, which in itself is a felony.  I'm sure they'd have given Obama the same benefit of the doubt.

Would you prefer farmers, printers, or vacuum cleaner salesmen?  The people Trump chose have relevant experience and have risen to the top of their professions.

Yes. Let's look at a couple shall we? Tillerson: Exxon mobil boss with very close relations with Putin and was awarded the Friend of Russia medal, appointed as Sec of State, who has decimated the diplomatic corp, knowing that Trump wants to pile money into the military, but then bizarrely said war was unlikely.

Then there's the Commerce sec, Wlbur Ross. Deputy chairman of Cyprus bank. Home of rampant Russian oligarch money laundering.

Then of course there's all the family members in official and unofficial capacities. All amply qualified because they're lawyers, pampered hoteliers and family members.

Steve Bannon; ex editor of Breitbart.. oh yeah, appointed to the Security council and had seven years in the navy and the displacement of members of the joint chiefs who do know what they're talking about.

Senate intel committee to interview twenty staff members. All that fake news that Trump insisted was baseless is going to be looked into about alleged Russian connections with the Trump campaign and present WH staff. As long as no-one tries to throw a wrench in the gears...

And by strange coincidence, he's populated said cabinet who will personally benefit (as well as himself) from legislation passed and revoked. Who knew that would happen?

My dad dropped dead at 58.  He worked hard all his life too and paid for his own medical insurance.  I don't recall him complaining about his paying his own way or about the quality of medical care he recieved.

Yeah, my dad paid for his healthcare too via national insurance to go into the NHS. And he never complained (nor did I) about his healthcare either.

The Republicans had nothing to do with Obamacare.  They proposed no amendments and none were added.  This was a law that had no input from Republicans at all.  I agree with you on your latter point though.  Republicans have been asleep at the wheel.

Oh?

Almost no one is noting the extraordinary influence Republicans had on the healthcare reform bill crafted by the Senate, as it made its way through the committee process last year. The bill approved by Sen. Christopher Dodd’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions committee, for instance, included 161 amendments authored by Republicans. Only 49 Republican amendments were rejected out of 210 considered.  Yet the bill got zero Republican votes when it passed out of the committee.

Wow it only took the democrat media 7 years to find someone it helped. I know 3 people personally who it crushed. One self employed who's lost insurance 3x thanks to Obamacare. Another's who's insurance is $2,000mo thanks to Obamacare. Nothing like punishing 300 million people to supposedly help 10 million.

Only it didn't. And its shortcomings were not in short measure due to the many amendments the republicans insisted on. Not least of all absolving insurance companies from covering unexpected costs; Not surprisingly they were passed onto patients.
The reps had seven years to come up with an all singing and dancing super dooper replacement. Where was it?

Of course, the sick, lame and lazy should be treated the same as those who work for a living and contribute to society.

Really? My old man worked like a dog from being a teenager until his first angina attack aged 53. After that he 'enjoyed' ill health after a triple by pass, heart attack until finally he died aged eighty one from a perforated duodenal ulcer and organ failure. (In other words 'sick'). There are many like him; So presumably anyone who is used up because they worked too hard and didn't see their family grow up shouldn't be treated the same as such as Trump who never did hard work in their life? Few lame people got there through choice, they had accidents or were born with problems; do they get discarded through no fault of their own? Aren't you lucky, confident in the knowledge you'll never be disadvantaged, ever.

  Why should there be any incentive to work. Let's just put everyone on a stipend and take care of all their needs to include cell phones and their drug of choice.

Sometimes I think there is something to be said for Social Darwinism on the basis of one's worth to society.    It would improve the gene pool across and within races.

Yes, and I know I've had similar feelings too. Then I remember we've evolved from the middle ages and how lucky we are compared with their lives.

Which career was Jethro Bodine (Beverly Hillbillies) best suited for?

  1. Brain Surgeon
  2. Hollywood Producer
  3. Double-Naught Spy.

If Jethro Tull hadn't invented the seed drill, what would the name have been of the self indulgent prog rock/folk group that Ian Anderson fronted?

Once again you prove yourself to be a classless twit.  (Dam, I'm glad I didn't spell "twit" the way I  was initially tempted to spell it.  But then again you don't speak French do you?) Who are you going to take on next Ivanka's toddler.

Don't get sanctimonious unless you're also going to take to task the odious bigots that infest this forum with their bile. And to be honest, Trump hasn't exactly shown his class when it comes to his behaviour to those who are disadvantaged or not his family.

His incuriosity is bone-deep.

Paul Ryan being packaged as policy wonk - that shit was blasted out of the sky rather quickly, eh? The Milton Friedman of our time, he ain't. I mean, I laugh out loud whenever I see this Eddie Munster lookalike on the teevee, and remember that people thought he was supposed to be one of the smart ones.

I have a question, and maybe it is just that of an overly doting father - has anyone ever seen the orange manbaby show the slightest gesture of affection to his youngest son? We know he's touchy-feely with his daughter, so he is not above such displays, but my feeling is the boy has some developmental delay that is repulsive to his physically repulsive dad.

Can we be sure Baron is his son? His wife must have been well stoned to have him between her legs.

I recall CHANGE!!!!!!!!! heralded from the mountaintops in 1992 and 2008 - funny how ephemeral that was. It was more stale than weeks-old Chinese leftovers an election cycle later.

And we will have CHANGE!!!!!!! in 2020, and I suspect more CHANGE!!!!! in 2024/28, and the sad loop goes on and on and on and we never learn a thing from it.

Here's an idea, crazy I know: Why don't we elect a fucking moderate to the office for the first time in forever. Just to try some real "sea change". Because electing another Obama or Trump? That way lies madness.

The anthropology of the 2016 election will be one of the defining historical works of our time. We need to know so much more about this electorate to understand what went on here.

Agreed. Although Trump has shown spectacularly he isn't master of what he surveys, despite what he thought. The more this train wreck has gone on, the more he's demonstrated he simply bends with whatever he saw on tv that day. He has no conviction other than to make him and his family richer/better known. Living in a bubble of adolescence, he has next to no maturity or worldly wise knowledge, and worse, has no desire to learn.

Notice his glee last week in the Mack truck as the GOP fought among themselves over ACA replacement; He couldn't have cared less. All his bluster using superlatives to describe anything he likes that day is just that. Bluster.

 He knows almost nothing about goverment, coming out with shit such as "No-one knew how complicated health care was". Is he for fucking real? He has zero humility, if he did he wouldn't have come out with 99% of the complete bollox he utters.

How about Trump's non grasp of recent history? This was him yesterday.

Trump added that "our soldiers are fighting like never before" in Iraq, and praised what he characterized as a positive trajectory in the country.

No-one told him about 1991 or 2003. Damn them. Of course, he wasn't POTUS back then. That explains it.

The Trump circus was asked a while ago if there was any truth in the story that the Trump team had asked the Pentagon for photos of military hardware that could be used in a parade on Trump's inauguration. They denied it, so the reporter went for a FoIA request to the military. Guess what? The WH had lied, there had been such a request to the Pentagon after all.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/emails-trump-military-vehicles-inaugural-parade_us_58d094d1e4b00705db5223ed

Quote
The month after Donald Trump won the presidential election, his staff asked the Pentagon to send photographs of military tactical vehicles that he could include in his inaugural parade, emails obtained by The Huffington Post show.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee “is seriously considering adding military vehicles to the Inaugural Parade,” a Pentagon official wrote in an internal email dated Dec. 13, 2016. “The conversation started as ‘Can you send us some pictures of military vehicles we could add to the parade,’” the official wrote.

The emails, which were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, corroborate HuffPost’s January report that Trump, who has spoken favorably of public displays of military prowess, looked into deploying heavy military equipment in his inaugural parade. Asked in December about plans to use military equipment during the occasion, a Trump aide refused to address the matter on the record but offered a vehement off-the-record denial. It’s not clear whether the aide was aware of the conversations referenced in the Pentagon emails, and he did not respond to a request for an explanation.
