  • Fruit cake

    Well, he did it again. This time racial remarks against certain countries. Every time he opens his mouth, Wall street and Bay street, as well as other foreign exchange markets react.

    Surely he can't last for much longer.

      Surely he can't last for much longer.
      And yet he almost certainly will. This is a list of disasters, screwups and appalling behaviour from him just this week:

      Monday evening: Tries to sing along to the national anthem but can’t remember all the words. Grade: C

      Tuesday morning: Holds televised roundtable on immigration. Absent-mindedly agrees to abandon his immigration plan and adopt the Democrats’ plan instead until Kevin McCarthy interrupts to correct him. Grade: D
      Wednesday noon:
      Tells the press that he got letters from a “lot” of TV anchors saying that Tuesday’s immigration session was “one of the greatest meetings they’ve ever witnessed.” Grade: C-

      Wednesday afternoon: Announces that Norway has purchased a batch of F-52 fighters, a plane that doesn’t exist. Trump’s confusion probably stemmed from his belief that Norway had bought 52 F-35 jets. In fact, Norway has authorized the purchase of only 40 F-35s. Grade: D-

      Thursday morning: After watching Fox & Friends, tweets that he opposes extension of warrantless surveillance, something that his administration has been pushing for weeks. This sends Congress into a temporary tizzy until an aide tells Trump what he’s done and he puts up a second tweet walking back the first one. Grade: F
      “House votes on controversial FISA ACT today.” This is the act that may have been used, with the help of the discredited and phony Dossier, to so badly surveil and abuse the Trump Campaign by the previous administration and others?

      — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 11, 2018



      Thursday morning: Meets with members of Congress and asks why we accept immigrants from “shithole countries.” Grade: F

      Thursday afternoon: In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, insists that DACA and Dreamers are different things and he wants everyone to get that straight. In fact, they are the exact same thing. Grade: F

      Thursday afternoon: In the same interview, forgets he has an upcoming meeting five minutes after being told he has an upcoming meeting. Grade: D
      As Kevin Drum pointed out, it wasn't even the end of the week. By that time, he'd first taken a 'victory lap' around the WH, because he thought that the S***hole comment had gone over huge with his base, then sort of denied it, then denied, it, even though even the other Republicans at the meetings sort of confirmed it. Then he tweeted about not opening the London embassy, in theory because of Obama (?), but really because he was afraid we wouldn't like him (he got that right). And he now thinks that federal officials who might say something mean about him are undertaking 'treason', plus believes that the judiciary should be able to go after his political enemies.

      And then there are porn actresses......

      Paul Ryan managed to be supposedly upset at what Trump said, but in reality, he's still waiting for his spine transplant. In short, the Republicans dont care, and amoungst Republican voters, he still has a 80% approval rate. Remember, even at the end, Nixon still had a surprisingly high approval rating, and without a Democratic majority, Nixon would have escaped any serious questioning from most Republicans.

      They will stick with him, because that is what they do - he's their guy. And thats the way it is, at least until Mueller gets Jared in an orange jumpsuit, in which case they will just not mention his name much.

        Your list of disasters occurring in just one week illustrates the strange alternate reality in which we find ourselves. I sit down to watch the evening news, and the newscaster reels off a list of approximately thirty Trumpian lies, disasters, insults, and faux pas, and then says, "And it's only Tuesday. Welcome to the new political reality."

        Perhaps we will be able to escape this strange alternate reality when Mueller puts the entire crew into orange jumpsuits where they belong.

          Thats the problem - in the end it normalises it and you just go numb. Frankly, I'm getting a bit like that over Brexit. The daily insanity and delusion is simply unbelievable, being crowned to day by May's tweet that she'd apparently stopped Credit card surcharges, when it had actually been the EU that she wants to leave, and the bizarre case of the current UKIP leader (who seem to stay in post as long as Spinal Tap drummers), and his new girlfriends tweets.

          I do wonder if this is all an ultra elaborate mass fake out, and someone is going to pop up to say we are all part of some sort of huge performance art experiment...because satire is starting to be outdone by reality.

            Why do we have two Fruit Cake threads? This one could have been a continuation of the first one.

            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
