His opposition are beginning to look like they're clutching at straws. It started with the protests, then SoCal threatening to leave the US ...

 

 

There really is no reason to be clutching at straws. There are enough hair raising things happening as it is.

 

If you voted for Trump, you might want to question how appointing "the swamp" (bank executives, lobbyist etc) is "draining the swamp". I would also have a long hard look at how he will do on the other promises that he has maid.

 

Wether you voted for Trump or not, things like attacking judges that opphold the laws that the Trump WH are breaking does not show someone that has any regards for laws at all. Expect to see more of that coming from Trump. There must be quite a few conservative Republicans that has a hard time with Trumps "governance".

 

 

 

And then we have him lying about voter fraud. I would like to see anyone show any proof of the 3 million fraudulent votes he is claiming.

 

Oh, and I thought Republicans had a problem with flip-floppers. Just look at this 180 degree flops on things like China, Nato, United Nations etc. Not bad things in themselves, but its something that Republicans would have attacked like hungry wolves if it was a Democrat doing the same thing... 

 

 

He's the most disgusting human I've ever come across. But my point is Americans wanted him and still want him. (Or at least half of them). Does that mean I'm disgusted at Americans? I dare not hold that thought ... 

 

However I don't fear him. If he wants to destroy the world so be it, maybe then America would wake up ...

 

 

Thats over the top. He is no worse than many humans, and better than many. And he won't destroy the world.

 

If I had to summarise him in one phrase, he doesn't dot his i's and cross his t's. For us, thats not great, for a POTUS, well, you know. Its very very bad and poor and so on.

The spy revolt aganinst Trump is bad but worse is reading that the intelligence community thinks Trump's too close to Russia and there are leaks in the White House that go directly to Moscow.

Essentially you are saying Trump is politically incorrect, and that's all.

There's a good hashtag getting around twitter at the moment, because of his signing things without reading, his 1 page briefings where he "likes maps and charts"  and, apparently, his inauguration poster has a typo. #TrumpCantRead

Pretty much. Brash, loud, doesn't think, decides "his" ideas are best without due consultation, so yes.

 

Thera are no ships from Japan, USA, China in the South China Sea. The banter over Russia, who knows. Its a lot of banter and fluff. Puffery in the advertising world. Aside from the affected Muslims over the ban, the damage is to himself, the US, the US political system. And many if the critics are American. 

 

12 months. And its only been 3 weeks so far, not 9 months of so so leadership.

This article is from today's Daily Telegraph. It's paywalled, so I have copied an intro

 

 

 

Donald Trump has done very little to justify the hysterical rage which has consumed his critics
JOHN BOLTON
FORMER US AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS

'Keep Calm and Carry On” read the iconic Second World War morale-boosting poster. Faced with the existential Nazi threat to Western civilisation, it was a remarkably placid admonition to the British people, particularly in the days that Britain stood alone after Germany’s victory in France.

 

To listen to some of Donald Trump’s critics today, in America or abroad, you might conclude the West was facing another existential threat. These unhappy souls style themselves not merely Trump opponents but “the resistance” – evoking memories of the 1940s French underground. Yet urging them to “Keep Calm and Carry On” today would simply send them into greater paroxysms of rage and frustration.

Seriously?! I wouldn't trust John Bolton with looking after my drink at a bar... This is one of the guys that made the Iraq war possible. And a "UN Ambassador" that didn't think the UN should exist.

 

Will give it to the Republicans: They know how to make ironic appointments..

Bolton is a reactionary Trump apologist who warmed a seat in the UN for a year. I'm not surprised a publication like The Telegraph would give him oxygen, but it doesn't add to the credibility of either.

 

I hope the copy and paste doesn't violate the FUG or any copyright laws since it is paywalled content.

When you criticise the author (and the publisher) rather than the arguments you rather prove his point.

Who is criticising? I'm just stating a couple of facts. Other facts glossed over by Bolton: Only three weeks into his presidency, Trump has the lowest approval ratings ever. There are mass demonstrations all over America against him. He has repeatedly been caught out telling blatant lies. He makes up so-called 'facts'. The American intelligence services are so concerned about his cavalier attitude towards security, that they have started withholding crucial information from him. Several government departments, along with many White House staff, are in a virtual state of rebellion. What is happening under Trump is not comparable to what has happened under other presidents. Bolton himself is a very minor figure of the right with little real weight or influence, who has supported Trump from the beginning.
