  • Fruitcakes

    I see they are at it again.who has the biggest button, the North Korean fruitcake or the American fruitcake. Strange, but the American president does not have a so-called button. He has an attache case with the activation code numbers he has to use.

    Given that his Secretary of State called him a "****ing moron", and it's now been revealed that Rupert Murdoch called him a "****ing idiot"; it's perfectly possible that he doesn't have a clue what he has and how to use it.

      I thought Trump's answer was pretty funny and quite apt in dealing with (what appear to be) an overgrown spoiled teenage brat who has suddenly been given the keys to the candy store just because his father died.
      .....lets just remember for a minute who is actually threatening the world with atomic Armageddon ..and it's not Trump.

        In my version of reality a statesman would maintain a dignified silence in the circumstances, not engage in childish playground taunting.

          Yes, but you must remember that Trump's no statesman. They are both like spoiled children who inherited money & thus power from their fathers

            But that pretty much is Trump. An over entitled bully from a young age, his father gave him a great deal of money, who then took it, and lost most of it in lousy business deals. Then he bought a casino, and another casino - which went bust, but only after his dad apparently delivered cash to help pay off some bank paper that was due. His airline, steaks, vodka, etc - all failures, but Trump's walked away, because he generally either uses 'other people's money', offloads his personal debt onto a business, or he's so in hock to banks that that he's more valuable to them alive than dead.

            And nobody knows who owns his debt now, but the charges of money laundering, the way he's very keen to be nice to the Russians and the fact that the only overseas bank will to hold his debt is under investigation by the US government for money laundering suggests some pretty shady people. Again - bailed out.

            Trump thinks his name is an asset, but thats in good part because he got bailed out by The Apprentice, which also lead to him being thought of as a successful businessman by millions of TV viewers, who confused 'Reality TV' with actual reality. Politically, he ultimately got bailed out by the Mercers (who paid much of his campaign funds and let Bannon work with him), plus ultimately Fox (even though Murdoch thinks he's a 'f***ing idiot'), Putin and the Republican Party. Actually, they are still bailing him out, since the GOP is doing everything it can to shield him from Mueller.

            Trump is the ultimate snowflake, despite his tough talk. The head of NK knows his hand, and plays it the best way he can, no matter how insane and paranoid that seems to the rest of the world. But Trump shouldn't have to worry about people poisoning his food (hence the 3 cheeseburger habit), get his cabinet to praise him in a way that the North Korean politburo would recognise, or boast about the size of his nuclear arsenal. He's one sick puppy, with apparently a serious hair problem (according to his own daughter).

            Reading the extracts of the new book, you just shake your head. Hillary warned everyone, but people weren't listening......

              So the general opinion is ......anything is better than Trump ? including a wayward North Korean dictator..#
              I can't help thinking that if 1939 happened today there would be people saying (about Churchill) "what do we want to listen to that fat,drunken tory,Eton privileged bastard for? Germany builds better cars than us"

                I don’t think anyone’s saying the Trump is better or worse than Kim. They’re both terrible, spoiled brats who are as bad as each other. What I think that most people are saying is that we would rather have someone else than both of them

                  You're right Steve and before long (At least in Trump's case) someone equally as mad or crooked, or both will be along to replace him.

                Strawman, strawman, come at get your lovely strawman....

                We are not saying that a paranoid murderous thug with a bad hair is worse than Donald Trump - its just that Trump, as president of the United States, should be better than that. He's supposed to be the leader of the free world. He shouldn't feel the need to get in a stupid twitter spate, and certainly not say 'my button is bigger than yours' in a tweet, like he was a nine year old child. Nor should he feel his is above the law, and that the law officers of the sate are there to protect him from it, or jail his opponents. Frankly, looking at the 'press release' that was given out after the quotes from Bannon were made public, you'd swear he was a nine year old boy, with anger issues.

                As for Churchill, most of the Tory party in 1939 thought he was a washed up, fat (true), drunken (often true) blusterer, and failure who was itching for war. That was his party. And he was privileged, although his livelihood actually mostly came from writing for a living, and he went to Harrow, not Eton. And the Germans certainly built better tanks....something which Churchill did agree with.

                Churchill was a complex person, with good and bad points. So was FDR. That doesn't make them perfect, but it does make them human.

                    Open door. These days, no one remains in the White house. As soon as one enters, out he goes. The only one who has survive is Rex Tillerson

                      ....& they were true statesmen. Trump isn't & never will be a statesman's arsehole!

                        The words of a true statesman (and very stable genius) :

                        ...Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star....

                        ....to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!
                        The 'being, like, smart' was a nice touch. Very 90's, very 14 year old Valley Girl. Its like watching Clueless, but with way worse hair

                        Dear God in heaven...its only been about a year.

                          As if the word “genius” hadn’t already been dragged through the mud enough by its use for an “Apple genius” to describe salesmen

                            I forgot to include the first part of Trump's tweet:

                            Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence.....
                            One of Ronald Reagan's son's later said he started to be concerned about his father as early as 1984, with a clear diagnosis of Alzheimers in 1994, after his left office. In short, not a situation even a self proclaimed genius should be citing. And the media certainly isn't covering it the same way.

                            BTW - Trump ran for the Presidency in 2000, on the Reform Party ticket - is he getting forgetful?

                            To be honest, I first thought this thread was actually about fruitcake (its post Christmas, there's a Christmas cake left over...), but the name of the thread makes perfect sense, when you think about it.
