Re: Trump

OK, my Prophecy. Trump is just beginning, he's working, unlike other pols, to carry out every promise he made. And his supporters are still behind him. There will be no impeachment except in the fevered dreams of some--but the Obstructionists will have a price to pay.

Re: Trump

Well, I highly doubt that Trump will carry out every promise he made: hell, a ton of them he's broken already! Even though I find the man both physically and morally repulsive I was in the "Well, let's give him a chance" camp initially, as I didn't want to be like those bitter right-wingers who were eagerly anticipating Obama's downfall from day one. Let's just say I changed my mind pretty fast when I saw how incompetent his administration was shaping up to be. I'm almost starting to see his administration as some kind of weird performance art: they seem to be going out of their way to appear to be as petty, foolish, and idiotic as possible, almost as if they're trying to see how far their defenders are willing to go in defending them. I saw a great comment on Goodreads a few days ago that said that Trump was less
like Hitler and more like Ubu Roi. I think they may be on to something there!

Still, in the name of fairness, at the very least back in February he refused to revoke a 2014 regulation (signed by Obama) that prohibited federal contractors from discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees (thus breaking his promise to repeal "every single Obama executive order, ha ha"). A vindication of the Infinite Monkey Theorem?

Re: Trump

You really have to wait at least a year to see where any new admin is going. Trump is still beginning.

Honest question: what would you like for Trump to do?

Re: Trump

Just read my previous posts, Nil. My hopes for Trump are largely in the area of foreign policy, esp Russia. No one else will go there.

Russia. N. Korea, Isis. Trump has a chance to do good here and time will tell the tale.

Re: Trump

I feel as if the American populist right have basically stolen the Occupy movement's criticisms of finance in politics and Bernie Sanders' movement's criticisms of US foreign policy in order to attempt to justify Trump, as these never seemed to be hot button issues for them before. That they suddenly have the Middle East's best interests at heart strikes me as highly suspicious, and it's flat out baffling the same people who defend all of Trump's appointments are super interested in how corrupt the political establishment is.

I see a lot of hollow lip service to these issues while the real sincerity seems to break out when it comes to immigration and race relations, which I'm sure Trump supporters know are where their opinions are more likely to face objection. I'd be more willing to listen to the alleged fascination with America's past foreign policy mistakes if the people weren't the exact same posters either a) brazenly posting BAT#### INSANE racialist doctrine out of Stormfront or b) the posters who support said posters in all they say with Trump-esque: 'Smart post from a smart, smart guy!' nonsense replies they fail to take any accountability for.
