The Orange Ego is at it again!

What's Hot
He’s just claimed personal credit for 2017 being the safest for global aviation!!  He’s obviously so detached from reality that he thinks that people are not going to laugh at this bizarre display of narcissism.

Also...  he’s literally just taunted Kim Jong-Un saying his (Trump’s) nuclear button is bigger than Kim’s.

I don’t think the world has ever had to deal with a leader so infantile and egotistical.  He even manages to make Berlusconi appear statesmanlike.

    You know the my button's bigger bit, I have to admit my pretty low opinion of him went up a bit there.  he reminds me of Team America World Police!

    Before Trump, Kim Jong Un was the silly little boy jumping up and down because the grown-ups in the room weren't taking enough notice of him. Now, there's another silly little boy in the room shouting "My big red knob's bigger than yours! NERRR!"

    I'd like to bang their heads together and tell them to either play nicely, or not at all. Better still just to pack them off to their bedrooms without any supper.

    What Trump doesn't seem to realise is that his "mine is bigger than yours, ner ner ner ner ner" button doesn't actually do anything. The US military have already publicly discussed what they would do in the event of Trump ordering a nuclear strike, and the answer is nothing - unless America was actually under attack they would consider it an illegal order.

    Kim's on the other hand might. It's not size that counts...

    His button only looks bigger ‘cos he’s got little hands. Mrs T reckons his small hands also help make his dangly bits look bigger.

    I'm not a Trump fan at all..

    when I heard about this I imagined Trump and his crew falling about laughing after the tweet...
    and under that, it say to me..
    yeah whatever, we [the USA] ain't taking you seriously so we'll just keep pulling your plonker

    I don't usually comment in these parts...  Politics is just so frustrating to me that I barely want to get involved in any way these days.

    When he first got in I thought ok...  Hes clearly not a nice human being BUT if he runs it like a business maybe, just maybe he would be ok.. (this was right at the beginning)....

    But he just keeps proving almost daily what an awful horrible nasty little man he is..

    This latest my button is bigger than yours, I just find pathetic. They are acting like school children.. Not people in charge of weapons capable of ending us all....

    In his election speeches he constantly went on about America for Americans ..  That he wont be sticking his nose in to other countries politics..  That's all hes frikken done.  Whats the other latest one... Hes going to withdraw all money from any country who doesn't give him respect...

    Id rather see Ali G in charge :P

    This book seems to have brought out the more mature side of him...   Before it's published he's ranting on Twitter about how it's all lies and how he's going to stop it being sold.  Er... That was a great move wasn't it Dumbass?

    After the free advertising they release the book early and people are queuing to buy it!

    Every time Trump tweets he just confirms the suspicion that he's REALLY got the mental age of a 13 year old.  Take his latest tweets about Steve Bannon and this book...  He's using juvenile terms like "total loser"  "really boring"  and name calling - 'Sloppy Steve".

    I know he's an idiot and a crook etc but I still can't get my brain to rationalise the shit he comes out with with the office of the President of The United States.  It's like we had elected Roy 'Chubby' Brown to become Prime Minister or Jim Davidson to become King.  How can the the most important job on the planet be given to a petulant adolescent?

    I know I'm just repeating the same old shit but I keep getting slapped around the face with the insane reality we're living in.

    Just now.... 4.27 AM for him....  "Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart."

    and he's just referred to himself as "(a) 
    genius....and a very stable genius at that!"

    "Like, really smart" ?

    Genius ??

    I am similarly incredulous. How can any country let itself be led by an infant? I'd like to think that if such a situation arose in the UK, say Alan Partridge was pm, then suitable action would be taken.

    Easy, fuckloads of tax cuts and a willingness to sacrifice GDP for jobs in America, which was the opposite of Hillary. For small town Americans it was little consolation that the country’s GDP may increase by 3% if their jobs were outsourced to China.

    Well after years of average people getting sick of the top 1% ignoring them, they probably just voted him in as a "roll of the dice" - they're tired of the old order.

    Anyway he'll be out in 4-8 years so I'm just not that worried about it anymore.

    What is beginning to bother me is the near acceptance the US is demonstrating regarding the idiot in chief's continual displays of incompetence.

    At what point do they say "enough is enough" and start making moves to get rid of him (the politicians) or gather en-masse on the streets demanding his resignation ?  It's screamingly obvious to everyone that he is a egomaniacal racist, sexist imbecile who has absolutely none of the skills that are required - that are essential for the job of a world leader.

    Are the majority of Americans content with that ?  Perhaps the question should be 'Are the majority of Americans not bothered enough to take to the streets?'.

    There obviously has to be a tipping point.  For example, should he ever declare that Congress should be abolished and he be declared President for Life or Air Force One be studded in diamonds at the public expense or somesuch, then there would be an immediate and popular move to oust or even prosecute him.  Somewhere along the line between those extreme scenarios and the current state of affairs lies a point where action to remove him becomes a reality.  I'm left wondering just how far down that path does that point lie ?  What does Trump have to do to invoke the rage of the American people ?

    More concerning is whether a point even exists for his support-base.  Would Trump voters support him all the way to hell, regardless ?  I do wonder.

    it's something I wonder about as well, but it seems, from reading comments on social media, that the Trumpists almost revel in all the stories about him, it's almost like they are proud of him, and each of his gaffes raise him in their eyes.

    Because apart from being an embarrassing oaf, he hasn't actually done anything detrimental to most Americans. If 51% are happy with their bank balance, job security and futures then they'll see no reason to rock the boat.  Two friends of mine in California supported the concept of Calexit when he was elected, then they heard about the orange ape's tax reforms and how much they would save, then suddenly a cringing twitter feed didn't seem so bad.

    It should be borne in mind that the US political and judicial system was designed with a phenomenon like Trump in mind.
    The ultimate authority is The Constitution. We should not under estimate how important this is to most Americans.
     The separation of powers has ensured stable governance for nearly 250 years and has survived a civil war.
    The guy made it to the White House, nothing can be done about that. The real test is whether the US system can keep him in check now that he's there.
      
    The most alarming aspect is that like other Presidents he may opt for foreign jaunts if he doesn't get his way domestically.

  • I think the tipping point could well be the 2018 midterms. For the past year the shameless Republican party have been shamelessly burying their heads in the sand and turning a blind eye to the various horrendous things Trump has said and done. As long as he is there to blindly sign off on their pet projects like dismantling DACA protections, restricting health care provisions, and cutting taxes for their billionaire donors, they will tolerate Trump.

    Condoning and pandering to Neo-Nazi thugs? Well maybe he didn't really mean it...

    Hiring his own woefully inadequately qualified kids and other sundry cretins to important govt roles? Hey he's new at this, give him a chance...

    Offending entire countries, races and religions with overtly racist comments and policies? Errm, yeah but he's just straight talker, the media just misinterpreted him...

    Etc etc.

    However, if they get a pummelling in the midterms this year, and look like they're gonna lose control of the House/Senate they will start to panic big time. It'll become apparent that continuing to support Trump through to 2020 could make the GOP unelectable for a generation. I predict the rats will start leaving the sinking ship, and the party will turn on Trump before the year is out.

    I love how Trump fucks up then always seems to fuck up again in his laughable attempts to deny the first fuck up !
    Take the latest one - his "shithole countries" comments.  Despite several witnesses stating they heard him say it, his reaction was that of a child - barefaced denial - "I didn't do it !"  Next, he gets two sycophant GOP senators to say "we never heard him say that" - which is significantly different from "he never said that".

    But the cherry on the top of this particular turd-tatin is Mitch McConnell, the leader of the GOP, who was present at the meeting - has refused to comment !  You can only come to one conclusion as a result - that Trump did say it and McConnell's refusal to support his denial just confirms Trumps is lying.

    So, Trump has been highlighted as a liar - by his own party !!

    That depends on whether you believe the Republicans are Trump's party. 

    Consider Trumps voting base. You've got Republicans who would vote for any Republican White House candidate, Republicans who did not vote Trump in the candidate race and who would ordinarily oppose him but would not rebel, and then you have the new class of voter: those folk who came over from Breitbart with Bannon and got behind Trump.

    The GOP hierarchy knows the faithful Republican voters won't change. Give them a white male candidate who gets a boner over guns whilst paying lip service to Christ and they're happy. The hierarchy also knows that there's a certain amount of GOP dislike/distrust toward Trump within some voters but they went with him for the greater good (ie. so Hillary wouldn't have her chance). 

    It's that final group, the Bannon/Breitbart voters, that is the real key to all of this. Nobody knows how large and how powerful they really are. Will they hang around for the next election? What's the lifespan of this group? Folk in the UK saw how UKIP shot its bolt after the referendum and now appears to be nothing more than a laughing stock as they prepare to dump another leader for the apparent crime of shagging a young racist. The B/B voter might be as transitory. Now that Trump and Bannon are at war, there may be the possibility that some see Trump as a fraud. 

    What the midterms will do is to give the hierarchy some idea of where the voter bases are thinking now.  Until then, you will get situations like the above refusal of Mitch McConnell to comment. They simply do not dare pissing off Trump and thus potentially pissing off that potentially volatile segment of the voting public.
