Trump MANIPULATES THE PRESS. He CONTROLS what they report on and THEY have been PROVEN to be the liars, distortion and omition of details in their "reporting", which is WHY they have had a LOWER APPROVAL rating of even Congress for DECADES for very GOOD reasons.
If Trump manipulates and controls the press then why is he constantly whining about "fake news"? Hell, now he's even complaining about Fox News (AKA Trump TV).

To all that keep making excuses for this guy. Do you also do this in your own life. You're not relevant here.

Had never thought about that with respect to Trump but it is dead on. Reminds us that hucksters like DJT are nothing new, we've always had them with us. The only surprise is that enough deluded people came together to vote this fool into the Presidency of the United States.

A great orator...right up there with Lincoln - I'm sure if we just wait 10 years all the historians will agree.

Well, they do have one thing in common. Anything Trump tweets is as credible as a Lincoln Tweet.

Good one!

Let's have an analogy contest, open to all.

Here's mine:

tRump is articulate in the same sense that a skunk is fragrant.

I've laid down the challenge.

Unbelievable. Thanks for posting that, I hadn't read it before. How can anyone defend this as being "articulate" with a straight face? This is the mental floundering of someone who is high or deeply confused.

I get why someone might have voted for this guy. But now that we have witnessed his inability to perform the duties of a President? The only reasons for voting for him in 2020 are pure ignorance or stubbornness. Or maybe this sort of blathering makes some people feel that he can relate to the "common man". Grasping at straws, I just don't get it.
