Explained by trooper...

Some people seem upset that President Trump isn't more "Presidential". Well, imho, "Presidential" never did a damned thing for the country. So, what's your take on it?

No, in fact, I've come to think being a narcissistic **** is a prerequisite to the job. Unfortunately, that's not what's happening here.

And since I'd really rather not participate in building my own prison, I can't support the person currently occupying the office... regardless of how many are cheering him on.

Whoever or whatever gets the job done is what's important. Trump is pretty clueless as to being a President but I've seen others do some pretty dumb stuff over the years. Remember LBJ? I will send no more troops to Vietnam and then he did just that.

Good? What has he done that's good? Deregulate the banks so they can crash the economy again? Killed the Iran nuke deal? Dropped more bombs than Obama? Doubled civilian casualties? Locked up children? Gave huge tax breaks to himself? Pulled out of the human rights counsel? Screwed Puerto Rico?

Name one good thing Trump has done.

Name one good thing? How about a giant list in a very short time? I'll name two and then link you to a gigantic list. The Economy and N. Korea. He puts us first where Obama apologized to the World and talked down to his own people.

You mean the list put together by the WH? I'm sure that's objective.
A third is duplication, a third are about consumer confidence which is meaningless and the rest is opinion and signing bills he didn't write.

Way more "objective" than the ridiculous and constant "Civil Rights March" ** going on. You've got a "Cops and White Guys are the Enemy" thing going on. You've got the "Take guns away from the Country boys' agenda. Good ** luck.

Comedy is also funny. That wasn't.

Perhaps you'd prefer his other example of ego, "I don't need Congress, I have a phone and a pen".

That's an example of the Executive branch having too much power and not giving it to the people.

Aren't most politicals (at least to a degree) self centered narcissistics? ... so if he's getting the job done, then no I don't care about that.

What I don't like, is the lying... especially the lying trying to get the listener (ie me) to believe something, that simply put is not true. And this is towards ALL PEOPLE... but all politicians lie... and I understand why they do, but I still hate it.. .and it bothers me when they do.

The businessman was/is a politician too and has been for a long long time, which is why he's an expect (unlike any other President lately) at controlling his media. He's had a lot of practice working in that NYC market.

But yes, the other one was the total politician, and rigged her nomination.

You don't know what he cares about or doesn't. All you know is what you see on television. So, now that he's reuniting the Illegal immigrant families who were suffering under a policy the Democrat Congress and President put in place, "He's just playing to his base." If he cured all disease, you'd still say the same thing.

It amazes me that you would believe Trump without, at least, checking.
That policy had no more to do with democrats and Obama than his claim "only congress can fix it." had to do with the truth. It is 100% Trump policy
Do you think 3 million illegals voted in California too?

Do a little research once in a while before you blindly buy Trump's ****.

Trump will never accept responsibility for anything unpopular because he can't handle criticism.
He's a pussy who talks tough until he's face to face and he's been a liar and a cheat his whole life.

I'll be the first one to give Trump credit if he ever does anything I could support.

The **** guy got a dictator to agree to surrender his nukes for crying out loud. I couldn't care less about his personal life. All I need to do is answer the question: "How is he doing as President?" Then I look and answer: "Pretty damn good."

You guys grasp at absolutely anything you can. You'd actually rather have Hillary. It's sickening to be honest. You do remember that she lied to the families of the fallen in Benghazi, right? The disgusting pigs made some fake news about a video that upset Muslims, and fed it to the families of the dead. A terrible lie.

You can tell me your opinion about who you think a man is but you don't know shit about a man's soul. I've come to the conclusion that Liberals are wrong about most things, not all.

Trump didn't make the law, only told the law to uphold the law on the border.

He fixed it, right there in front of everyone; you still attack. You just say: "He's a bad guy and anyone who disagrees is a complete idiot." I'd have to be an idiot to believe that.

You work hard at this. I don't at all and still win this. You don't care about the good things that people do; you only care that they agree with your ideology.

Anyone who does a good thing should not be judged harshly for it. Actions speak louder than words.

As harsh as you weirdos think he is, he's shown remarkable kindness, if we're honest.
