Very fluent in bullshit

I couldn't stand to listen so I read the text.

If you can believe this then you might as well start believing in unicorns and pixie dust.

I mean seriously?

That some of the punditry are saying this was presidential is dismaying.

He can't do any of this--except the VOICE stuff. That he'll do.

God, we are so screwed.

There are certain things that you just don't do...

There are certain things that you just don't do. And this is one of them. It seems like Trump has developed an expertise at doing things that are not ever done. He seems to be getting away with them. But I think that the damage is incremental and slow. His approval ratings are going to continue to go down and down and down and down.

I would like to ask a nephew of mine, whom I know voted for Trump, what he thinks of this latest out rage. He has already expressed some discomfort with the notion of repealing Obamacare without a replacement. I wonder what he feels when their commander-in-chief of our military blames I casualty on the military itself.

Once you have offended the intelligence community and the military you've subtracted a sizable chunk a his base. Can he then recover? He's somehow remained unscathed when he's done other things that just aren't done.

Unfortunately, we'll have to wait and see.

I agree

This was the central mistake in my opinion. She failed to talk about what the Democrats would do in office. She spent much of the campaign focused on how unsuitable Trump is for the Presidency and on her decades of experience in politics.

But she only occasionally spoke about what she and the rest of the Democratic establishment would do to make life better for those that felt abandoned and forgotten.

She was running against someone that kept telling the electorate that he was going to make America great again, bring the jobs back, drain the swamp. It was all BS but Trump knew that he just had to keep the rubes believing until the deal was closed (sad thing is is that most of them still believe in spite of the last few weeks).

Clinton is a sincere, sober realist who couldn't bring herself to make promises she might have been unable to keep. It cost her the election.
