Trump is a terrible human being. He is petty, vindictive, a bully. He mocks those he sees as different or inferior. He is graceless, uncultured, ignorant. He is consumed by meanness of spirit and a thirst for revenge. He reminds me in many ways of Idi Amin. Tragically, there will probably always be people like him. What discourages me to the core, is that so many Americans seem to be celebrating this plunge into brainless barbarism. It is like the nazi book-burnings. Half the nation seems to be eagerly lining up for a lobotomy. Trump is not a joke. He is a catastrophe, the personified antithesis of all that is great and good in the world. He is an evil psychopomp, leading the souls of those he has damned into hell.

To be fair it's actually about 20% of the nation who actually voted for him. That's still 20% too much though.

 

Lets hope the other 80% think the same as most of us do on GZ.

Wow, you sound like Nancy Pelosi. And I guess this whole sad saga can cause people to take sides and lose all perspectives of fairness. Now Fox News can't find anything wrong with Trump while CNN can't find anything good that Trump has done for the USA. Apart from his personality, I think a fair appraisal of Trump is whether or not he has done some good things for the USA. Now what's the answer to that?

The global citizens can judge Trump but the political and judicial systems of the US, if satisfied, despite all the abhorrent stories we know of, is what counts, for Mr Trump, at the end of the day

We could have a thread about Kim Jong Un, Xi Jin Peng, etc. Won't change anything. Mr Kim and Mr Xi will continue to be dictators.

So if the US votes Mr Trump a second term, it is not impossible. Its up to them.

OK now I know your joking. Fox News AKA Republican Propaganda Channel.

 

Trump has serious mental issues that make him entirely unsuitable to be President of the local golf club let alone President of the USA.

*Citation required for anything positive that the Trump administration has *actually* done for the general population USA.

 

I'm struggling with anything positive that Trump has done for the general population that hasn't been done primarily in his own self interest.

After seeing Trump crowing on TV about his acquittal by the GOP it's obvious he doesn't know that the only thing people dislike more than a bad loser is a bad winner.

 

 

Trump is too stupid to realise

 

Acquittal does not equal not guilty

 

Acquittal does not equal innocent

 

and no matter what he says or does, he is still Impeached.

Well, there's plenty of positive achievements as set out in the State of the Union address. We all know that the whole thing is completely along party lines and so there's heaps of Democrats who are feeling very sore that they couldn't convict him. Oh well, so much for sitting in the middle, you're either all for the man or all against him. There aint no middle ground to this whole saga!

I have no idea how smart or stupid Trump really is, just that he has a very loose relationship with truth and don't seem to bother much with learning details of anything.

 

So not surprised by the reaction. And at this stage not surprised that the GOP let him get away with it.

 

What is somewhat surprising is the totalitarian response to Mitt Romney taking a stand against Trump. The way they are attacking anyone not pro-Trump is very scary.

Um, scuse me, but I also find it's a bit scary that anyone who might suggest that some good things might have happened during Trump's presidency is regarded as nutty!

Feel free to (with other references than Fox) show me what has been happening under Trump that wasn't influenced by what happened before he went into office.

 

And do take the time to read the fact checking of his state of the union address. He couldn't help but lie there as well.

I honestly cannot think of anything good Trump has done, but I honestly also must say I haven't bothered to closely check. I am prepared to allow, for the sake of argument, that he may have done something good, whether by design or by accident. The problem with him is not if he has done something good or not, but that he is a complete and utter arsehole. He is a genuinely nasty person who goes out of his way to attack and demean those he sees as lesser beings. He is devoid of compassion, empathy, mercy, and any other quality that normally defines a human being. He is a jerk. Anyone weaker than him will be pushed into the mud. He would clamber over babies to escape a burning building. He has no shame. He has no morals. He is not worthy of the presidency. He is not worthy to be a dung beetle. He is an abomination, a misanthrope, a pustule of excremental excess. I don't care if he has done a good thing. If he has, it was either an accident or done to benefit him in some way. The problem with Trump is not what he has done, but the person he has repeatedly shown himself to be, documented in detail time and time again. There is no way to make up for that by fantasising about something good he may have done. Mussolini made the trains run on time. Hitler built the autobahns and was kind to his dog. So f-ing what?

I'm about to break Godwin's law, but all posters in this forum were already given permission a long time ago.

I'm sure Trump has done some good things, but so has Adolf Hitler.

Adolf gets credit for the creation of the Volkswagen Beetle. He also motivated Jews to establish Israel.

Much like Trump's love of the coveted Time magazine cover, Adolph was on Time magazine's covers several time including.Time's man of the year in 1939.

Adolf Hitler loved his mother.

Both Trump and Adolf Hitler were called for war time duty, before becoming leaders. Unlike Trump, who has hid from duty by bribing a doctor, Adolf Hitler actually served his country.

Where Trump had to hire a ghost writer to pen his book, Hitler actually wrote his own.

Trump has lived with a silver spoon in his mouth his entire life, and either handed success on a golden platter by his father gifts, or gained it with misappropriation, usually by means of abusing the legal system. While Adolf spent some time as a starving artist.

Hitler was reportedly a teetotaler, nonsmoker, and vegetarian.

So doing a few good things does not make Trump even a sub-par human.

I think females wasps who inject their eggs into living caterpillars probably have more empathy for their victims than Trump.

I think parasitic African eye worms are more pleasant company than Trump.

You could say I'm not a fan of Trump.
