Congratulations, you've managed to fill a hundred pages with posts about Donald Trump. I wonder how many we'd be able to manage on Theresa May or that big girl's blouse Trudeau.

Probably not many as they're smaller players on the world stage.

The unhinged tweets of Roseanne giving the unhinged tweets of Trump a run for their money.

Difference is Roseanne was fired and deleted her Twitter account. No such luck for Trump.

I found her George Soros comments to be just as if not more despicable than her ‘Apes’ comment, but happy she got her reckoning one way or another.

the media yelled at Trump over sanctions on China, then they yell at him over bellicose language, then they yell at him during his Asia diplomatic summit, then they yell at him for tweeting directly to Kim, then they yell at him for 'Fire and Fury', then they yell at him over which cabinet people to appoint and their work on North Korea, then they yell at him for talking to Kim, then they yell at him for not talking to Kim, and THEN they say he's had no impact and on and on and on.

Poor widdle Donnie!  :cry:

President Trump has made it clear that he likes what he hears on Fox News. The network often covers the president favorably, bringing on conservative commentators who push the president’s agenda and, at times, explore far-right conspiracy theories.

But in an unusual shift Tuesday, three voices on Fox News pushed back against the president’s most recent conspiracy theory. A Fox News guest, commentator and anchor all rebuked claims from the president and his allies that the FBI planted a “spy” in his campaign in an effort to undercut his candidacy.

Outgoing Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the House Oversight Committee chairman and a Trump supporter, said in an interview on Fox that the FBI was justified in using a secret informant to assist in the Russia investigation. Gowdy, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, attended a classified Justice Department briefing last week on the FBI’s use of the confidential source, identified as Stefan A. Halper.

“President Trump himself in the Comey memos said if anyone connected with my campaign was working with Russia, I want you to investigate it, and it sounds to me like that is exactly what the FBI did,” Gowdy told host Martha MacCallum. “I think when the president finds out what happened, he is going to be not just fine, he is going to be glad that we have an FBI that took seriously what they heard.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2018/05/30/on-fox-news-rep-trey-gowdy-and-andrew-napolitano-dismantle-trumps-spygate-theories/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.db6b5a06bf94

He rails against the majority of the media for telling the truth and then gets them back by talking absolute bullshit and making stuff up.

Congratulations, you've managed to fill a hundred pages with posts about Donald Trump. I wonder how many we'd be able to manage on Theresa May or that big girl's blouse Trudeau.

To be fair, they have their faults and they'd fill a few pages for their current travails, but during their lives, they've lived a decent existence at some point.  Nothing with Trump, being born into money and being given millions by his father, conning people his whole life, and being a racist, homophobic, sexist blight on society, has even a glimmer of positivity to it.  If he wasn't president, I couldn't care less what he does.  It's just we have to suffer his ridiculous nonsense every day.

You're a Brit living in Korea aren't you? If you just stopped reading anything about him, your suffering would be greatly alleviated.

Yes.  In some ways, it's almost impossible to avoid hearing about the dumb crap he gets up to because he wants to be everywhere and talked about, as all publicity is good publicity in his books.  Maybe my use of the word 'suffer' was a little strong with regards to me.  It's more head shaking and amazement that somebody could be so unfit to hold such a prominent, 'important' position, and still supported by anybody.  It's like a car crash you can't look away from, and to think that people still look at him and what he stands for, and still think that he should be lauded or worse still, reelected. 

Since he's come in, it's been a little similar to the Blair/Campbell years.  Rather than 'doing' politics they just spend their whole time 'playing' it.  Years of 'spin' and deflecting eventually come back around.  Bannon's ideas of just pumping out tonnes and tonnes of shit so that no one knows what is going on or what is true is just one example.  Accuse the media of talking crap, all the while spewing a pile of bollocks everyday isn't anyway to be taken seriously.

You’d argue that protectionism has hurt the Japanese rather than allowed them the get stronger in key high skilled industries?
The us also has from its inception protected its markets which is how it grew in key industries , manufacturing of textiles and production of steel and its own railroad. 
Britain also to grow kicked out the Dutch and didn’t permit them to even sell textiles until Britain caught up with the Dutch. 
There is no open free market, and as long as there isn’t you use trade to get countries to lowere their barriers, like Germany which hides behind the eu, that it controls to the detriment of all the member states

If you followed his advice and stopped caring, you'd realize that Trump isn't Hitler and he hasn't come close to destroying anything and that everything is fine. The Presidency is important but it's not THAT important.

The Trump opposition is an exercise in mass hysteria. For the degree to which things have changed, the level of outrage is unjustified. 95% is people just working themselves into a lather thanks to the media and their own boredom and needing a "cause".

You've got it really bad, Martin, you really have.  In your little echo chamber, you are the only one who is projecting this 'Hitler' nonsense onto others.  You are the only one talking about this.  I've not mentioned it once.  I'm also not sure what combination of koolaid, crack or other prescription drugs you must be under to think that 'everything is fine'.  You really should get out a bit and stop watching Fox.  Really, I worry about you. 

As for stopping 'caring'  :laugh: that would be something.  If everyone stopped 'caring', wouldn't that be a little bit too, erm,  liberal for you.  We can't have that.  'Hey Mexicans, yeh, sure, come over here.  We don't care anymore' 'KJE, you can have your nuclear weapons, it's ok.  We're fine with it'.  Wait, I forgot, it doesn't work like that, does it Martin?

Vowing to get hard on China, Trump imposes steep tariffs on...key US allies... in the name of national security. Meanwhile, Trump also vows to help Chinese company ZTE stay afloat, a company that regularly flaunted US sanctions and whose components the US military bans the use of by personelle... for national security concerns.

Quote
“Europe, Canada, and Mexico are not China, and you don’t treat allies the same way you treat opponents,” Mr. Sasse said.

And which country was it that is trying to impose maximal political and economical discord globally to shake up the existing order?

Seems US allies are not necessarily Trump allies, and the same might be true of its enemies.

Martin's like the little kid who's trying to convince his mum that the dog didn't eat all the biscuits from the table even though the dog has crumbs and chocolate around its mouth, the dog looks guilty and also just let out a big burp and there's kitchen CCTV footage of the dog doing it.  Still the boy doth protest.

"President Trump is normalizing racism...

"This is evidence to support conservatives’ intuition that the character of a president matters. But apparently that’s something conservatives no longer believe. Or do they simply not care that a president is setting a racist tone for the nation?"

What's really happening is that American politics is degenerating into identity politics. The political left can't claim the moral high ground on the issue. There are plenty of people on the left who would love to throw the groups they don't like under the bus if they had the chance. Trump is more of symptom than a cause of what is happening. It's going to get more interesting in the next few decades as America becomes even more diverse.

As diversity is a good thing.  What you really mean is divided.  That is all Trump is doing.  He is only interested in the groups that 'adore' him.  He couldn't give a shit about anyone else.

trump is the racist-in-chief. He just pardoned his jester, d'souza, one of the alt-right's leading racists and conspiracy theorists.

Tax cuts aren't working, trade wars aren't working, culture wars are working only with a smaller and smaller base...November is looking good for Dems .
