Fred99:
Stan:Ah the data that I was looking at was out of date on gallup but looking at more recent ratings Rasmussen Reports is not that far off others like Mclaughlin & Assicuates, Morning Consult and others all with in a few % points with December polls many are mid to low 40s similar to Obama some are low 30s the spread is very large.

Good lord. You're comparing Trump's highest rating from the hopelessly biased Rasmussen Reports with Obama's average.
Obama managed to get 50% average at this point in his presidency -despite being in the midst of the GFC - and being black. 10 point lead over the biggest liar and dirty scumbag misogynist Putin-backed POS POTUS.

 

 

 

No need to get emotional, im simply talking about the variation in polling when it comes to trump and the methods used to poll.

 

Is trump backed by Putin? I thought they where not very friendly at the moment on account of USA selling weapons to the Ukraine.

Folks, remember it is Ukraine, not the Ukraine.

Ukraine is the country and "the Ukraine" is how the Soviets referred to the region under their control.

Apparently "the Ukraine" is highly offensive to the country and population.

"Backed by"? Depends what you mean. Putin backs whoever he wants in the interest of Putin.

Trump essentially admits collusion by his comments that "even if there was - it isn't a crime". Nixon tried the same tactic.

Feeling gloomy about the future?

 

Watch this YouTube clip and brighten your day. It's one of several that feature Allan J. Lichtman - the guy who predicted Trump's win.

 

But hooray - he now predicts Trump's impeachment.

 

Of course, after that happens, America will have Pence to worry about, but I figure that's their problem. Trump is EVERYONE'S problem.

Donald Trump made 25 false claims in his latest New York Times interview

 


WASHINGTON U.S.

President Donald Trump sat down Thursday [28 December] for a rare interview with a media outlet other than Fox News, holding an impromptu 30-minute session with New York Times reported Michael Schmidt at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Fla.
He made nearly one false claim per minute — 25 false claims in all.
As of Dec. 22, Trump had already made 978 false claims; adding the Times interview, the tally will pass the 1,000 mark in the next update.

 

 

The article lists every false claim that Trump made in the interview.

Consider That Trump Might Just Be Dumb

 

 

And yet all year long, op-ed columnists, cable news channels, magazines, and think tanks have attempted at various times to give Trump a “doctrine.” For example, earlier this month the conservative National Review—less than two years removed from “Against Trump”—wrote that the Trump doctrine was “America and American interests will always come first, globalist agendas second.”

 

A New York Times story today is the latest to try to assign Trump’s foreign policy some kind of quality that can’t be boiled down to him not knowing anything. Reporter Mark Landler writes that Trump is “unpredictable and inward-looking” and “remains an erratic, idiosyncratic leader on the global stage, an insurgent who attacks allies the United States has nurtured since World War II and who can seem more at home with America’s adversaries,” namely Russia and China. He also says that Trump’s tweets “often make a mockery of his administration’s policies and subvert the messages his emissaries are trying to deliver abroad.”

 

Trump is “unorthodox” because he doesn’t know anything. Contrary to what some in the media would like to believe, there is no doctrine or approach, just whatever Trump feels like saying or doing at any given moment. Trump isn’t unpredictable or inward-looking, but rather completely clueless and unwilling to learn.

 





Lock him up!

There isn't a thing about Trump that I like, approve of, endorse, respect, appreciate or admire.

 

Except one - the money.

 

Note I didn't say HIS money. It's as tainted as he.

 

But I could put a million or two to good use. Pest control is apparently quite expensive in the D.S.A.

Thing is, he probably doesn't actually have any money. Lots of debt, no actual money.

Actually, I wasn't looking for any of the Orange Trumpkin's money.

 

Any source would do :-)
