Trumps ego would love being president for life and as you said most know he didn't mean this as a joke.
There should and hopefully never be in the U.S a president for life. Might as well go back to having a King and Queen.

What a stupid a$$ thing for the US President to THINK, let alone say.

Not even remotely funny.

Who cares if Trump tries his hand at humor. All presidents do and most fail.

I am not a trumpie, Libertarian here but I am not losing sleep over all this like the left is.

Realize that when you all on the left are constantly debating this minutia regarding Trump its hard to take you seriously on things of real importance.

Relax.
For someone who is "not a trumpie" you sound pretty anti-left.

The left does political humor very well and it's actually the right that has difficulty with it. Fox news tried an ill-fated attempt about 10 years ago because of their acknowledgment of the effectiveness of Jon Stewart.
Exactly right.

He should just stop trying -- he's not funny.
Sometimes when I view the tapes of these kinds of attempts a humor he actually makes me laugh.

Most of the time I just shrug.

He gets a kick out of being douchey it seems.

Ladies and gentlemen, our President. Sigh.

People on the right sharply criticized Obama for saying that he wished he could make laws without congress as a boost to dictators around the world. What is the difference between Obama's and Trump's comments?

You can't blast Obama and then accept Trump's comments.
They both love to get a rise out of their detractors.

That perception seems to be very prevalent on the left, assuming that any who do not agree with the left must be Trump-loving RWNJs. That assumption was part of what cost the left the election. Keep ignoring the middle majority. We don't like +/- 80% of what the right serves up and +/- 95% of what the left serves up. But until the left brings something to the table even remotely digestible, we'll do our best to stomach what's already here.

No, you just don't like the left, which is obvious from your post, so stop trying to act like you are some kind of a moderate, or someone from the middle ground. You are not.
