Many people like Trump because he makes his opponents angry. Many people measure the kind of job Trump is doing based on how angry people who didn't vote for him get. Many people know President Trump is behaving like a petulant brat. Many know this and continue to support him in spite of (or in many cases BECAUSE OF) it. President Trump's behavior makes many people angry, and rightfully so. However, people getting upset pleases some of his supporters. This isn't just about Trump. We're in a culture war. It has become "whatever makes the other side squirm, do it".

That's okay. I understand why you are posting this. You are doing this because of your hostility towards anti-Trump types. It gives me an insight to your mentality.

He had Severe Senility. It's in his son's genetic makeup and it's just a matter of time until The Big Decline begins. It could be happening now or in the midst of a second term.
Trump may, or may not, have pre-dementia, but the stress level can not be helpful ...
  • He knows the world is onto him, so he struggles to put up a brave front, explaining away his many faux pas and blaming others around him for serious reversals, denying old friendships, etc.
  • He knows that if he loses the next election he can still be charged for his Federal crimes. This is a huge problem for a proud old man.
  • He is so invested in the ten year long Obama economic recovery that he is in a state of panic that the economy will tank on his watch.
  • He can see the rank and file Republicans are starting to buck on him, and in the back of his mind he knows he still might be primaried, exposing a lot of things from a Republican perspective he doesn't want talked about even while he defeats the challenger.
Trump's fits of rage are well known, combined with his intolerable vulgarity and his cantankerous refusal to listen to subject matter experts, he has the white house in chaos. If his stress level goes too high for any length of time, he will have trouble with pronunciation, trouble keeping his arguments straight and trouble with consistency of thought and policy ... and he's not getting any younger.

This is true. And thanks to Trump's behavior, he has basically shamed the Presidential office, and this country with his behavior Of course, judging by the behavior I've seen, there are many people in the USA who just don't care. It is "whatever makes the opposing side squirm, do that".

It's a crackup to you because you support Trump.
and you're outraged because Orange Man Bad.

It's all good, although I expect he was going to offer more money than Harry Truman did.

You might want to break out a map and look at the size of your examples. Perhaps the Vatican could be on this exclusive list.

I think it's fun just watching the US act in a self-interested fashion (and with the realization that the post-WWII system of bribing 'allies' isn't useful anymore).

I wouldn't sweat it. The surveillance society is ratcheting up and the move towards a higher standard of living East Germany will be complete at some time. The Universal State will roll over Trump's head and the seas will settle once more.

"Not for sale" still too difficult a concept to grasp? And in the meantime, he's decided to call the Danish PM nasty. His poor little ego really does not do well with women in power, does it?

It is very noticeable.

Something about powerful women unrattles him, and he perceives 'nastiness' where none exists.

The petulant child in the WH is an embarrassment to all sane American adults.

Anyone not drinking the orange koolaid should be eager to vote this spectacular failure out of office and restore a sense of dignity to our standing in the world.

It's as if he thinks Greenland is a real estate deal....

It's not a difficult for said persons to grasp. Said persons just do not care. Many people are on board with Trump for several reasons.

1) Some people might relish the idea of America becoming an empire. To some, this is Trump "making American great again".
2) Because some people want to see people like you and me upset. Some people get off on people criticizing President Trump. When people who don't support Trump don't like what Trump is doing, some of Trump's most loyal supporters see that as a victory. Basically, it's "make the left angry".

The irony of it is that the very persons who seem to be on board with President Trump trying to buy Greenland are the very ones who see Puerto Rico as a burden and want it cut lose.
