Well, overall, looking at everything from all angles, and taking into account the travel ban, the phone calls to heads of state, the press conferences, the inauguration numbers, the protests, the Florida rally, the tweets, the alleged links with Russia, the gagging of the EPA, the insult to Jon Sopel of the BBC (which is, of course, free, fair and impartial), Obamacare, abortion, Nordstrom; SNL, the strange handshakes, the hiring and firing of staff, fake and not-so-fake news, and the burning question – what did happen in Sweden? – I think I have come up with a word to describe it all…….

I have to brace myself each morning as I open up my news app on my phone. I keep thinking “today will be the day that there’s no ridiculous scandal coming out of the WH”…and then nope, the day is not that day.
I can’t believe it’s been less than a month. I can’t do another 3 years and 11 months of this.

Yea, because these threads always end well. *head palm*

TravelingBride31 : If Trump is re-elected again in 4 years, you will have to take another 4 more years of this

loverweddings : I’m just managing to cling to the last strands of my sanity by actively and willfully remaining in denial that he could be re-elected. That’s future me’s problem in a couple years time 😀

I think it is interesting that you repeatedly start threads bitching about Trump. Since you feel so passionately, I would assume you have friends that feel the same? Can’t you bitch to them? …or do you just come here to stir the shit pot?

Your title is wrong. Should read “Putin’s first month” and it’s going as expected.
We all mourn for the non-existent, only in Trump’s head tragedy in Sweden and the Bowling Green Massacre, are happy to spend millions every weekend on his vacations that are lining his own pockets, and super glad we could offer trump a chance to learn things that are taught in second grade while he’s allegedly “on the job”.
We worry about his open air, face-book lived “security” meetings held with cellphones in hand and the botched Yemen raid that already killed a Navy SEAL, esp from someone whose campaign said Clinton should be shot for her emails which were too secure to be hacked and wouldn’t shut up about Benghazi. which was not a planned raid, but just weeks in his first raid went wrong not due to unforeseen circumstances, but a lack of planning and intel. See, Trump doesn’t believe in intel, because “I’m, like, a smart person.”
Said self-identified smart person doesn’t go to all of his briefings and prefers they be reduced to one page with graphics. So you can imagine how he missed a few pertinent issues.
This month in school: what is government, no you don’t have absolute power, no you can’t buy and sell weapons to middle eastern country on your own, yes the courts are equal, and yes we know your campaign was promising Putin things as Putin worked to “hack” the election for you and yes, working with a hostile foreign aggressor is anti-American at best.
oh, and he’s working on silencing the press because they are all “very fake news” whereas his imaginary crime numbers and made up terrorist attacks in Sweden are all of the best info.
trump has already spent more in vacations in a month than Obama did in a year, but his supporters are okay with that, because… I can’t quite out my finger on why. Maybe it has to do with the birth certificate.

PS the ties to Russia are not alleged. All intelligence communities have determined trump camp talked to Russian intelligence agents and Moscow constantly during the election. His National Security adviser DID talk to Moscow the day after president Obama put harsh sanctions in Russia for interfering with our election.
They denied it was about the sanctions, but trump admin was told it was about the sanctions weeks ago, just in case they didn’t know. But they responded by making that guy the head of all national security here and then they lied to the public and the press about the nature of the calls.
then the intel community dropped the news that they had recordings of Trump’s NSA on the phone with Russia. And yes, he was talking sanctions.
Since that is undermining a sitting president, also known as violating the Logan act and treason, he was finally fired but only because the press wouldn’t stop reporting it.
What has not been revealed is what the constant conversations during the election were about. You know, as Russia hacked democrats to hand the election to Trump. What in the world could they have been talking about…

Please do start a thread on a topic you would prefer to talk about. There is more to politics than Trump and I’d quite like to talk about how to spot fake news and how to ensure that neither the left or right wing manipulate us. Would you be interested in such a discussion?
My 93 year old neighbour has a lot to say about Trump. Non of it complimentary. Compared to her I’m very restrained in my comments. She has, of course, lived through the Second World War and so is wary of anything that hints at totalitarianism. She’s non too keen on Brexit either.
The scandals of the Trump administration are exhausting – and I’m expecting the administration to implode any day soon. Of course, it probably won’t.
One of Trump’s aides, Sebastian Gorka, has accused the BBC of fake news and despite my best efforts I can’t find what he’s referring to. I plan to write to Mr Gorka and Mr Trump and see what they say. I’ll let you know if I receive some answers.
That’s the news from the UK where all the women are strong, all the men are goodlooking and all the children are above average.
P.S. Did you like my galaxies?
P.P.S. I’d much rather be wrong about Trump for all our sakes. Tell me one honorable, kind and brave thing that he has done in the last month.

Honorable – unlike Obama using a tragedy as a photo op, Trump told nobody and went to visit with the family of the Navy Seal that was killed overseas. The media was furious that he would go somewhere without notifying them.
Honorable – Trump invited the LEOs that worked his inaugeration to the White House to THANK THEM for keeping him safe
Given that this is a WEDDING site, I would think people would have things other than Trump bashing to discuss. Sure, you can discuss anything, but it seems the same people keep starting the same threads over and over again.
Unfortunately, you and your friends have made up your minds about Trump -I read this somewhere else and I can’t think of a more fitting group of people this applies to – if Trump ran into a burning house and rescued a family and all their pets, you people would be bitching that he didn’t save the couch.
I didn’t vote for Obama, but I had an OPEN MIND when he was first elected.

On the plus side, this has been a great month for memes.

ct2015 : Couldn’t agree more. This user is obsessed with stirring the pot re trump and has been going at it for months.
OP – Good thing you don’t live in America! Why don’t you find a local cause to focus on?
