At least it is interesting to watch, a bit like allow speed train wreak. I just wonder how long it will continue. Some of the stuff he is saying / ranting is just bizarre and you can see a lack of respect from people in the audience. . He seems to be a tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists with all the stuff he is saying about fake news. I wonder if he believes in aliens and Area 51, I guess he is in the position to find out if it is really true.

My guess is 4 or 8 years

I can't see him lasting much more than 2, if the democrats take power. It all depends on how he behaves. He is also a sitter for something health related to happen, and he doesn't look all that healthy.

From Fox News:
Trump overturns the bill that protects streams from having coal mining debris dumped into them. You can watch the video. This is one busy president.

Sorry don't understand how / why the democrats would take power?

Women’s Difficulties That Melania Trump Feels Very, Very Strongly About

The New Yorker, February 16, 2017

A random selection, quoted verbatim:


Child-Care Costs

Child care is perhaps the most important feminist issue, and right now it is far too expensive.
For example, it costs an estimated five hundred thousand dollars a day for the Secret Service to take my son to and from school.
I am lucky enough to have the taxpayers cover this expense, but this is a cost that most women cannot afford.

I think that is supposed to be satire. It's not far off, though.

The next senate elections in 2018. Whether they would then look at impeachment. Although to be fair the republicans may do it before them, although that would be truly historic. But all of this is totally new ground.

And here is one of Trump's key levers of influence. He has proved he can mobilise large numbers of hard core supporters using the various mechanisms available to him.

There are some senators and house members up for re-election who could be replaced in the same way that Trump won the presidential nomination selection.

Trump might look dumb in front of the media but I assure you someone who destroyed Hillary using all kinds of unorthodox Russian-style gambits have the Senate covered. If he were smart he'd start with planting moles in the CIA, FBI, ... everything the internet and the social media has thrown at him has only made him stronger ... he ain't going anywhere fast

As long as that someone is working for the Don, he's untouchable. Yes, half wants him out, but the other half is completely with/for him.
