It does @hazel. He is a first class narcissist. Too bad this is real life, otherwise it would be fun to watch.

Hmmm. Systemd vs Trump. Who will win and outlast the other.


Kids in our town marched peacefully.

I don't like looters labeled as protesters.
It just a right wing trick of the tongue.
Distract from the issue at hand.

Too bad you feel bad Hazel. I figure Twitter will win. It is corp. world any hows.

Out of curiosity do you support the president? As that would be a very logical viewpoint to say you dont like his character, and it's a shame we have to elect someone with such blaring character flaws. But realize we needed someone to disupt the system in order to "drain the swamp". Simply because no other politician will do it. Or are you just playing devil's advocate?

Kind of don't have any choice. The alternative is the communist left insurgency that wants to destroy the very fabric of the country and enslave us, take all of the hard earned wealth and give it their buddies. Did you see how many votes Sanders was getting in the Dem primary? Those votes came from the indoctrinated/clueless/very young. But still scary how very little knowledge of history that they don't have.

The other choice is Biden. I don't think that he is even as competent as Hillary. He is senile and past it. As well as being an arrogant fake, wet finger in the air, leftist thug type.

The rest of the world must be laughing at us. The 2 candidates for President of the US this time are 2 sex groping, narcissistic, arrogant self serving, one percenter, lying, almost incompetent geriatrics.

At least Trump is pro American. Which is something that I would kind of expect an American president to be. Kind of weird to have a president that hates the country. We just did 8 years of that.

Any pro American sentiments Trumps has is completely negated by his borderline retarded narcissistic personality and his delusions of grandeur. However you are right in that the Americans are not given any good choices and regardless of who is president we will lose.

How many people in or around politics that we didn't vote for or even vaster e.g., military, local police, lawyers &c*? That's because they're f****** jobs, they can get fired like any one of us or our bosses!

Humans are humans, opinions are opinions and facts are so few!

If there were any owners of Earth and they could fire the bosses to it, it's everyone on the planet!

Only the facts ma'am.

Other words for opinions: religion, racism, politics, war,,, currency...

The "swamp" has certainly not been "drained." Do you see the types of people
running the federal agencies? For example, the EPA, for example, is a guy who
used to work in fossil fuels. The Treasury is run by a guy who use to work at Goldman Sachs.

Reminds me of one time when I posted a pro-Trump anime meme to a Reddit group. Everyone got extremely angry, and then I posted a similar pro-Obama meme featuring another character from the same show, but it didn't matter. The anime group then banned politics altogether.

We laughed at Trump for his buffoonery and because we couldn't believe he could get the job. No problem expected.

Then we laughed at you for voting him CEO of your nation. As at a temporary aberration in a family member.

Now we watch the news and can only weep in sorrow for you.

I realize there are times when Trump sticks his foot in his mouth, however Twitter should NOT be in the business of fact checking anybody. It sets a horrible precedent.
