Donald (D)rump, Almost-Leader of the Free World, Still Sweats the Small Stuff

"It is in (D)rump’s nature to be deeply concerned with optics and perception—the crowds, how the media sees him, the celebrities, a designer’s assessment of him—but less so with the minutia of actually running a country. And there is little incentive, at least so far, for this to change. Sweating the small stuff, after all, is not only true to who he is, but it also arguably won him the election. (D)rump’s base ate up his thin-skinned criticism of the media and his endless rumination on his own celebrity. They, too, cared more about his “Make America Great Again” proclamations without worrying about the specifics."

Exactly. As the Drump himself loves to say, "SAD!"

Really, "the disabled guy" thing again. There have been plenty examples of Trump using the very same hand motions or mannerisms when talking about other things. That issue aside he does need to selectively pick his battles and not feel the need to respond to the small fry. Meaning things that will have little to no impact on what he has or is going to do.

Other Dems are boycotting in solidarity because of how Drump went after a Civil Rights icon for a perceived slight. Criticizing (or boycotting the inauguration) due to Drump's behavior is about Drump himself and not the office.

Personally, I think they should all attend.


Those looking to boycott the inauguration have given a plethora of reasons as to why they are doing so. The reality is there only two real reasons for them doing it. One, to try and delegitimize Trump as our POTUS and second, to continue their unwillingness to accept the defeat at the polls. After all, they lost every objective they set out to achieve. Which was to keep the oval office and regain the majority in Congress and the Senate. This all boils down to the fact that the inauguration is not about any one incoming President. It's about the tradition of "peaceful transition of power" and it being a tenet of our Republic. I and many around the globe heard many Democrats (including Michelle Obama and Hillary) say,"When they go low, WE go high" (i.e. Take the High Road). So if that is the case, they have either thrown that mantra "out the window" or they only wish to selectively use it.

What he needs to do is transition from Trump the business mogul and public personality to Trump the POTUS and Commander in Chief. So in my opinion he should limit his response and reactions to the major media and those in government positions. Skip the commentary by celebrities, talk shows and the like. I think that would serve him well.

https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2016-09-06/how-obama-s-economic-record-stacks-up

(Of the 12 postwar presidents) "Obama comes in eighth out of the 12 (in terms of presidential economic records), but still records a positive score, indicating a roughly average performance. That is based on six full years of his record, from 2010 to 2016. (This analysis leaves two years to go, because I allowed one year for the effects from the previous administration to subside -- more on that later.)

That is not a stunning performance, but it is a major improvement over that of his predecessor, George W. Bush, whose economic score was significantly lower than even Jimmy Carter’s. Rest assured, in this analysis a president’s score takes into account what he inherited and what he left behind. That’s one reality that both benefited and hampered Ronald Reagan’s and Obama’s scores."

Oh, and what does he say about GDP growth? "In fact, at 2.1 percent, it is the fourth-lowest growth rate of any president’s and below the postwar average of 2.9 percent."

That's the same figure I quoted before, after which I was accused of "lying." :lol: :roll: :lol: :roll: :lol: :roll:

The article sums up: "What is the takeaway then on Obama’s economic performance? When you take the slow global growth and domestic consumers’ retrenchment on debt into account, the record emerging from his rather calm and cautious approach is one to build on, not one to be cast aside."

In other words, plenty to be critical about, but exponentially better than Drump and his cronies portray it as.

It has more to do with the fact that many people don't pay attention to government and politics. If they even do, it's only during election cycles. Even at that point many of them can't even articulate the policies and positions of the candidate they support and expect to cast their vote for. It's more of a lack of paying attention then "being stupid". On the subject of "being stupid", we have the public education system to thank for that. Which doesn't bode well for our government since they are in charge of it.

Most likely not. Since he has no involvement with running the military yet. But I bet Obama's administration will use this to say that "ISIS is on the run and not expanding". I assume you are saying this due to Trump's comments when it comes to recent announcements and actions of some businesses. In those cases he has directly held talks with some of them and others seem to be reacting to what Trump has said he is going to do as POTUS. Speaking of Libya, I wonder how ISIS was able to obtain a stronghold there, since they didn't have one before Gaddafi was killed. "We came, we saw, he died" - SOS Hillary Clinton. Perhaps that statement needs updated. Something like: We came, we saw, he died and a far worse element moved in".

True, in some cases. While FOX News wants to suggest GM's actions were due to Drump, buried deep in the story is this nugget (and an earlier version of this exact same story said it much more clearly, but I guess their editors asked them to tone that nugget of info down).

"GM spokesman Patrick Morrissey said all of the decisions revealed on Tuesday have been in the works 'for some time.'" (if "for some time" means more than two months, which it almost certainly does, then the decisions were made well before the election).

Don't even try to write that shit off. :roll:

"Now the poor guy, you gotta see this guy," he continued, before launching into an apparent impression of Mr Kovaleski, waving his arms around with his hands at an odd angle.

"Uhh I don't know what I said. Uhh I don't remember. He's going like 'I don't remember. Maybe that's what I said.'"

Mr Kovaleski has arthrogryposis, a condition that affects the movement of joints and is noticeable in his right arm and hand.


https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2016/08/02/donald-trumps-revisionist-history-of-mocking-a-disabled-reporter/?utm_term=.0200eb1bd6b8

Here, below, is a video of Trump speaking about Kovaleski on Nov. 24. Note that Trump first says the article was “written by a nice reporter.” (Kovaleski is indeed nice.) Then he goes on to mock him, jerking his arms in front of his body: “Now, the poor guy, you ought to see this guy, ‘Ah, I don’t know what I said, I don’t remember, I don’t remember, maybe that’s what I said.’”

Trump’s explanation in Colorado is simply not credible. First of all, we already confirmed that Kovaleski did not grovel or say he made a mistake. Moreover, Trump actually appears to paraphrase Kovaleski’s brief statement about not remembering that thousands of people celebrated. Trump now suggests he was just imitating a grovel, but that’s not what he was actually doing.

Instead, Trump is clearly imitating Kovaleski’s disability — the reporter has arthrogryposis, which visibly limits the functioning of his joints. Trump claims he did not know Kovaleski, but the reporter closely covered Trump’s troubled business dealings while he was a reporter for the N.Y. Daily News between 1987 and 1993.

A lot of phones are going to go unanswered in D.C. beginning tomorrow.

"Overall, out of 690 positions requiring Senate confirmation tracked by the Washington Post and Partnership for Public Service, Trump has come up with only 28 people so far...the Partnership for Public Service suggested a president should have "100 Senate-confirmed appointees in place on or around Inauguration Day." At this pace, he won't have 100 nominees by the end of February, let alone having them confirmed and hard at work."

No. I haven't been keeping tabs on it except for commenting on posts here about those boycotting the inauguration. This is all to be expected and these types of things will continue throughout Trump's term. At this point it would be this way for any non progressive liberal in the oval office. Speaking of the Girl Scouts, I'm surprised that any liberal would be involved with such an organization. Based on "the values" liberals profess to have, one would think they would consider the Girl Scouts and the Boy Scouts organizations sexist. Claiming that they are not "gender inclusive".

I'm going to disagree with you. Had it been one of the other Republican presidential candidates who won, I'm confident the scouts would jump at the chance to be there. Drump's a divisive candidate who alienated a number of groups during this campaign. That's a fact that even Hannity would likely concede.

K.C. I did see in the local news that the entire Philadelphia legislature is not going to the inauguration. I question how many were actually planning to be there in the first place. Anyway, it amazes me that people still want to live in that dive of a city. Especially since they introduced their ridiculous "soda tax". If you buy a two liter of soda it will cost you about 5 bucks there. The legislature went on to claim that retailers were raising the prices on soda. If that isn't funny enough,they were mad that the retailers just didn't change the shelf prices to include the tax. Instead they list the tax right in plain view on the receipt.
