Imagine...
We are all passengers on a giant jumbo jet traveling a long distance, the pilots work in shifts and are selected by votes. The latest pilot, a guy named Trump was selected to shake things up. People were a little tired of the status quo and wanted a change. Nobody expected him to win but he did and here we are!
He's gone through several co-pilots as they have either been fired or quit and he appointed his sons and daughters as the cabin crew.

He doesn't know the first thing about flying a plane or how it works but the plane is very well engineered and has lots of failsafes or "checks and balances" built in. Still, it's only been a matter of luck that there has not been a real crisis or test of his skills or ability to calm the passengers if needed.

He constantly spends his time on the PA system of the plane, saying offensive, politically incorrect things.

So...
Imagine you are a passenger on this plane.

Would you be more worried and concerned about the politically incorrect things he says over the loudspeaker or the fact that he has no business flying a PLANE and no desire to learn how to do so properly?! In addition, he has a massive EGO that makes him think he is just the BEST pilot EVER!.

This is what I don't GET about the criticisms of Trump from Democrats or the Media..
It's almost always about the latest politically incorrect thing he said and almost never about the fact the we've elected someone, regardless of political party, who has no ability or desire to learn how to be POTUS.

What's more important to you? That the guy piloting the plane has no idea what he is doing or the fact that he says off-color things alot?!

I don't get this.

You are making a false comparison. It's not either/or.

Most people know he has no competence running a government and are ALSO offended by his language and demeanor.

That's TWO reasons, not one or the other.

Dems:

Fifty plus years of real estate and womanizing. TV medals. Voice recordings. Russia-gate. Grab'm by the p***. Only billionaire to grow broke and become a billionaire again in the last forty years. Yet, we can't offend you, smear you, or make racism stick, and despite our best efforts, you refuse to die. You should be doing 25 in the pen by now. Yet, here you are, president. Why is that?


Trump: It’s one of life’s mysteries, sir.

The "checks and balances" are the Supreme Court, they stop Pelosi from getting in the way of Trump's mission-

At Trump's request the Supreme Court allowed federal immigration authorities the right to detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime after they have been released from prison on criminal charges.

The Supreme Court allowed Trump to divert $2.5 billion in Pentagon funds for border wall construction.

The Supreme Court allowed President Trump to enforce his policy of banning certain transgender people from the military.

The Supreme Court permitted full enforcement of Trump's travel ban for Syria, Chad, Iran, Somalia, Yemen and others already enforced.

Pelosi is the flock of birds flying into Trump's propellers.

Now that is funny.

I usually disagree with you, but I can't stand Pelosi and that is funny.
