The country will be fine....that's how it got to be the global superpower that it is.

And very little of the former. And you got a pretty good boost toward your global position by using slaves to do the work while you reaped the profits.

More people took public transit during the entire Inauguration day for Trump than did those who took public transit before 11am for Obama. Trump has bigger apples than Obama's grapes.

The photos were taken at the same time (1 hour before the speech) in both cases.  Look up actual facts.

I don't get how someone who hated Harper so much can support Trump.

You see a lot of that in reverse around here too,. Folks who love pipelines, and can't stand immigrants, and cheer big tax and regulatory cuts to corporations maintain they can't stand Trump. Because he's a buffoon?

Whatever.

Don't worry about it.  I can see the Trump administration is handling the MSM(and his political enemies) like the Pied Piper.  They're going for the shiny bauble in one hand, and missing a lot of what he's signing with the other.  Classic misdirection, and their hysterical outrage is damaging their own efforts.  Plus his manipulation is accomplishing some other goals with regards to the media and crying wolf every day.

Very good observation...so true.   Trump has the MSM back on its heels and wondering what to do about it.   President Trump and his WH spokesman single out media enemies and publicly holds them accountable.   The MSM is not used to being on the defensive.   There is nothing special about liars with a journalism degree.

I don't see them being back on their heels at all. Rather they are having a field day with what seems to be an endless supply of material from Trump's/Spicers' mouths.

Reagan did the same thing when he held his first press conferences...told the media rabble to sit down and shut-up...wait to be called on.   No more screaming and shouting at the president during press conferences as was common for President Carter.

The phrase, educated fool, comes to mind.  It's going to be entertaining to watch the media sputter and shriek.  They'll have a short half life for sure.

Trump is no Reagan. You could disagree with Reagan on a whole host of issues, but you couldn't help but like him. Only the first part applies to Trump.

Trump's fan base is growing....will never match Reagan's.  

Younger folk here have no experience with the Reagan presidency....it was not all peaches and cream, including the media.

You should be familiar with this tactic since you use it yourself frequently to excuse Islamic terrorism and barbaric cultural practices.

 

FFS, Argus.  Grow up.   This topic isn't about Muslims, nor is it about attacking me.

Few were keen on Hillary but Trump's lies are off the scale. They are way beyond the acceptable level of deceit that we expect from politicians. As PJ O'Rourke put it:

Trump's lies are only white lies, so not that bad.

I don't find it terribly interesting that Trump makes a few statements to get people's heads spinning around. What's interesting is the reaction, and the amount of energy wasted talking about it, while not talking about more esoteric matters involving policy.

Yes...this is President Trump's strategy.  Muhammad Ali called it "Rope - A- Dope".

It didn't get that way via chancers (I typed chancres originally which would do just as well) like Trump. Great industries and weak neighbours were key ingredients.

Trump voters should get their passports and see what carnage really looks like out foreign. The US is still a great country to live in and has a lot to lose.

Veteran Trump watchers warn us to expect more of the same:

...and ruthless presidents, just like Trump.    The history is readily available for those who seek a balanced perspective.

We are not talking about Big Brother here. Presidents must expect extreme and constant scrutiny from the hour they are elected. Their job matters. We can only judge by what we have seen so far which is disturbing to say the least. The man is still going on about the election. Unbelievable.
