The hysteria is hilarious... it's like nobody has ever read a Presidential biography

before or a book about the Kennedys. LMAO @ the pundits clutching their pearls.

Reporting good economic news is either "Republican" or selling one's soul?

Dang, news to me. I was under the opinion that we should welcome a healthy economy. But I guess some would rather see our country be poor and hungry than have it look good on a non-Democrat.

Point is no matter how disgusting or dangerous Trump gets the response is always but the economy is great, ( Which Trump is about as responsible for as he was for no one dying in a plane crash last year.)

No, the point is...some of you insist on dwelling on relatively meaningless stuff because you hate the man so much.  

Trump is a factor in the improving economy. His rollback of excessive regulation has helped, and business has responded positively to his more business-friendly positions.

The fact that the business-hostile Socialists are no longer in control is as significant as anything. Your people were strangling the economy!

Excerpts from the soon to be released book.

 

If he was not having his 6:30 dinner with Steve Bannon, then, more to his liking, he was in bed by that time with a cheeseburger, watching his three screens and making phone calls — the phone was his true contact point with the world — to a small group of friends, who charted his rising and falling levels of agitation through the evening and then compared notes with one another.

 

As details of Trump’s personal life leaked out, he became obsessed with identifying the leaker. The source of all the gossip, however, may well have been Trump himself. In his calls throughout the day and at night from his bed, he often spoke to people who had no reason to keep his confidences. He was a river of grievances, which recipients of his calls promptly spread to the ever-attentive media.

And we all know people who write books always tell the truth. I mean...what reason would they have to exaggerate or lie....except maybe that it sells books.

I'm sure the haters here will rush to buy Bannon's book since it gives you more to fuel your own hatred.

Personally, I don't have time for all the drama. I'd rather make money to support my family than spend all day scouring the internet for stuff to hate Trump over.

But maybe some of you get off on this kind of stuff. Back when I was in school, I saw lots of 12 year old girls who loved drama.

Myopia is the inability to look further ahead than your grasp of short term money.

 

Let me suggests you consider a few realities:

 

  • Trump's reception by world leaders is cold at best
  • American foreign policy is in shambles ... much worse than you may think (link)
  • Trump and republicans pass a tax law that will throw another 1.5 trillion on the debt (and explode deficits even before that tax giveaway comes into effect.
  • Pulling out of the Paris climate accords
  • Pulling out of the TPP
  • Jerking both Mexico and Canada around over NAFTA
  • Threatening military action in Venezuela much to the horror of other nations in the hemisphere
  • The threat of war with N. Korea with little consideration of S. Korea and depending seemingly on China has S. Korea wondering why deal with us if our security will come from China and the US is apparently wanting to blow us all up in a friggin war over whose frigging button is bigger.

Then, the economy is an issue regardless of the apparent momentary euphoria. The last two times the income disparity was as great as it is today, was in 2008 and 1929. You know what happened in 2008 but Look up what happened in those years because obviously you forgot.

 

The real danger to our economic health will come not from another stock market crash ... it will come because Trump is such an ignorant flake with no interest or understanding of other nations - hell he seems to consider those not run by a dictator flawed and minor league unworthy of respect, interest or attention.

 

The end result is that his incompetence will likely kill the golden goose that is the US position in the world in the period beginning shortly after WWII.  That goose is the international monetary system which uses US currency as the world's major reserve currency.

 

Our position as the issuer of world's reserve currency will likely be challenged in the next two years; probably by China or by a consortium of other countries including the Saudi's and Russia.

 

Trumps short sighted flip in foreign affairs has folks from our closest allies to our enemies all sensing we're literally imploding and they're out to grab land, make new alignments and whole host of other actions.

 

The imperfect world we all knew; the world that had the good sense to avoid a nuclear holocaust and had stupid wars in Viet Nam, Afghanistan (both Russia and US), Congo, Iran, Iraq, etc. etc. but was, unlike the first half of the 20th Century, much more peaceful, is being totally exploded  and our position as the worlds' military superpower is exploding.

 

So, I'm sure you vision of the world looks quite rosey with your head up Trumps ass but I can guarantee you we are, because of the gross incompetence of this idiotic moron, in for a whole new experience and it will likely be a bitch.

Some of those things aren't bad.

And he's still far better than the last guy or the other candidate.

pubby - Do you ever see anything from a positive point of view? Or do you walk around seeing gloom and doom 24/7?  I suspect the answer to these questions is determined by which party hold the White House.  Trump is a Republican, so everything he does is terribly wrong in your eyes. Conversely, a Democrat can do no wrong as far as you're concerned.

Your entire sense of right and wrong is based on whether a particular issue has an R or D on it.. You have no real morals or opinions of your own. Partisan politics owns you so completely, you're probably incapable of thinking a Republican woman is pretty no matter how gorgeous she is.

Considering this administration is like nothing we've ever seen before (everyone should be able to admit that) and the fact that Trump is trying so hard to stop it, of course people are going to be interested in reading it. Not because they hate anything or anyone but because, curiosity. There have been plenty of books written about Obama and every president. Some of y'all have even taken excerpts from books written about Obama and posted about them as fact. No reason to get upset about this book and what it may contain, of course unless you're Donald Trump.

Agreed. But no reason to get worked up over it and post it on a message board as if it's some kind of smoking gun.

That was so Trumpean of you, it's like you two are brothers. 

 

Donald Trump told his communications director Hope Hicks, who reportedly sees him as a father figure, that she was “the best piece of tail” Corey Lewandowski would ever have, an explosive new book about the president claims.

 

Hicks was sitting in Trump Tower with Trump and his sons and was “wondering aloud” how she could help him with the press, when the president interjected.

 

“You’ve already done enough for him,” Trump allegedly responded to Hicks.

“You’re the best piece of tail he’ll ever have,” he added, in a comment that reportedly sent Hicks “running from the room.”

So he said this. Imagine that

That's all funny because even Wolff says in his book that much of what he allegedly learned in the White House may not be true. According to Business Insider, "The author of the explosive new book about Donald Trump's presidency acknowledged in the book that he wasn't certain all of its content was true."

It's so funny to watch Trumpflakes melt over this book. Especially when everyone knows that Trump is unstable and unfit and the author is probably more credible than Trump. It kind of reminds me of an addict that gets mad when confronted with the fact that they have a problem.

Hmmmm

I seem to remember you calling out people for being hateful, but only when it's people you disagree with. You and others have been happy to contribute to the hatefulness under the Obama Administration. Hmmmmm. So lets not be fake. I was never really offended by the term snowflake but I did question those who used it after an election in which people were legitimately upset at the outcome (now we see why). At this point I call it like I see it. Enough time has passed and we are beyond the point of knee jerk reactions. To still think Trump was a good idea is a conscious decision and one I have no respect for.

I remember you having a problem with me calling the white supremacists in Charlottesville snowflakes. It might be time to stop worrying about terminology and worrying more about the train wreck in the White House.

I seem to remember you calling out people for being hateful, but only when it's people you disagree with. You and others have been happy to contribute to the hatefulness under the Obama Administration. Hmmmmm. So lets not be fake.

I never thought Trump was a "good idea". I definitely thought snd still think he was a necessary evil to defeat the monster who rigged the Democrat primary to become their nominee.

Be glad you didn't get a President Hillary.

I thought he was a good idea from the beginning. His first Presidential rally was in Atlanta. My girlfriend went, which shocked me, if you knew her.

To have one so radical from all of the thieving lawmakers on The Hill, to say exactly what he thinks, to pay for his own campaign, to donate his Presidential salary to charity, to undo the mess Obama and the liberals made, to bring business back, to grow business, to change the tax code, Im looking forward to a great 7 years.

Im not melting and Im not a snowflake. Thats totally on the left. They just cant handle it and will go to any length to try to destroy him. Which is a stupid thing to me. Why wouldnt you want your country to excel and have the lowest unemployment in years? Why wouldnt you want a border wall to keep illegals out? Why wouldnt you want the constitution protected? Why wouldnt you want the stock market going through the roof? Why wouldnt you want welfare revamped? Because you dont know how to wipe your ass without the government telling you how and when.

Dont take it personal. Its only for those that are offended.

Some of those things aren't bad.

And he's still far better than the last guy or the other candidate.

pubby - Do you ever see anything from a positive point of view? Or do you walk around seeing gloom and doom 24/7?  I suspect the answer to these questions is determined by which party hold the White House.  Trump is a Republican, so everything he does is terribly wrong in your eyes. Conversely, a Democrat can do no wrong as far as you're concerned.

Your entire sense of right and wrong is based on whether a particular issue has an R or D on it.. You have no real morals or opinions of your own. Partisan politics owns you so completely, you're probably incapable of thinking a Republican woman is pretty no matter how gorgeous she is. 

 

You say some of those things that have happened are good.  I'll admit none of them - say the TPP - were ideal but the idea that the alternative is better is what I object to.

 

I know you know that every decision that trump makes is based solely on his gut based on at most, some dumbass opinion expressed on Fox and Friends.  There is no analysis, there is no understanding, there is no  understanding. He is incapable.  And the thing that gets me is that if he screws up a few of these, we'll be in a world of hurt for decades if not forever.

 

It is kind of like your crazy uncle who never drove a car visiting at thanksgiving and insisting on taking the fastest car of the lot, loading up all the kids and driving like a bat out of hell on a dangerous mountain road.  The adults look at the rooster tail of dust along the edge of the canyon and pray as they mumble, Thank God he's not killed the kids .... yet.

You're flat wrong.  We want to excel and have a great country.  We just don't think you get there by drilling for Oil 200 yards off the emerald coast in Florida after eliminating all the rules and regulations requiring you don't do stupid things (Like BP did in the Gulf in 2009).  It is kind of like the analogy above where the fastest car in the lot is a super-charged Hummer that will go 130 miles per hour  and you decide to load the vehicle up with all the kids and drive it on a curvy gravel canyon road as you try to hit the top speed.

 

The point is this man is the antithesis of conservatism.  He's pedal to the medal without the first moment of study or consideration and without a lick of sense or prudence. some of the kids in the  back are crawling under the seat or strapping themselves in and putting on helmets knowing this crazy SOB is going to wreck us all ... and then some of the kids are so thrilled by the obviously sensational speed, the g-forces that put a carnival ride to shame and are screaming and giggling right along with the idiot; or is it trucking moron driving the bus.

 

We don't hate the guy, we just know that the Hummer we own is going to be broken and there's a good chance blood will be spilled by the time we get this dumb SOB out of the drivers seat.

 

If we're lucky, the hummer will bust an axle and we'll slide into the wall of the canyon. If we aren't, we'll fly off the road and drop like a rock, crash and burn.  The chances the totally novice crazy old man driving this vehicle will make it through eight years without a something very bad happening is nil.

 

We don't hate him, we   want to excel and succeed as a nation.  We just don't think he or his cohorts in congress are capable of doing the job and are hoping to stave off disaster.

 

There will be plenty of time for hate after the smoke clears and we bury the dead, help the injured and  recover the ship of state if it is recoverable at all.

For those keeping track... at least 3 of the author's claims have already been thoroughly debunked.

As of this morning... that is five false claims  :
