Ignoring the second part there, huh? The article lays out quite a few purchases and there are many which have been going on. The claim was these land purchases by countries no longer exists in the modern era. That was proven wrong. The Sekaku Islands was one I knew off the top of my head, the article I posted showed it was even more common than I thought.

These are the ravings of a madman. The 25th Amendment addresses the case of an incapacitated president and sets the guidelines for the Vice President to take over. It would seem that time is now.
So someone comes up with an idea that doesn't meet with you approval and he is unhinged, glad you told u that. It is very powerful and we will all agree with you:NOT!!!! As for purchasing Greenland, I am sure you are not old enough or haven't done any research or you would know he is not the first president to suggest this. As for cancelling the meeting, I agree that was not one of his smarter moves.

He insulted an entire religious group? Care to share with us what group that might be?

As for gun background checks I must have missed his saying we should not do that, you must of heard it.
His calling himself the chosen one was stupid, I agree, but we have all gotten accustom to his tweets and his saying things that are totally out of bounds.

Good luck with getting him removed from office. I hope you are not seriously counting on this happening.

You want Mike Pence to take over if Trump gets removed from office? He is a far-right hardcore conservative, which the left should be worried about.

What's his position on the economy and trade? I think with Pence at the helm we may be able to avoid the economic collapse currently underway because of Trump.

Trump is absolute garbage, but so is every other President, with the exception of Harrison--who was the only good President because he died a month into office.
WOW do you have a cynical view of the leaders of our country...!!!! So you are saying Washington, Lincoln, FDR, Reagan and others were garbage. Care to share with up why and how? Why do I think you may not want to explain yourself?

These people seem to enjoy the mutual masturbation they find from other TDS sufferers in threads like this.

You didn't quite get that right. For the left it's "Trump DERANGEMENT syndrome". For the right it's "Trump DELUSION syndrome".


It's about their delusion that this man is sane in any way shape of form.

But nothing he has done should lead an unbiased person to feel he is unfit or unable to serve. Not liking what he does isn't enough. Elections are for that (vote him out).

I feel if Joe Biden is elected the 25th amendment could become a real possibility. He appears to be slowly approaching a state of senility. Maybe a year or two , maybe longer, maybe not at all but I can't watch him and not wonder about his current and future mental acuity.
It's not not liking what he does. It's the effects his words and actions are having on this country, not to mention in the eyes of our allies. He's completely ineffectual. Like a bull in a damn china shop. Not a clue on diplomacy or how government works. Not to mention all the crazy crap that comes out of his mouth.
