Now That Trump's President...

 i wonder if, in that setting, he could simply win over both parties.

This is about winning over the public (as you also say). Not about winning over reps. The reps will only start to move into a different direction under public pressure. It's their constituency which will be the driving force. The reps privately have made their mind up about what actually happened during 2016 elections. But what the reps think privately is different to what they say publically. In public they will always speak on behalf of their constituents. (which could also mean donors)

So many thread pages wasted on that bastard. Zero pages spent on stuff happening in the world that matters much more. Little words on the corrupting effect the US has on world politics with or without Trump.

Ultimately Trump being in power hasn't changed US foreign policies much. They are little worse than they have been under any other president that has ruled the country.

US government and elections have probably been bought since the day they have formed. I don't except much from the next one that gets elected.

If only the US was a democracy

Threads about Trump.

There's another thread for that... well about America and what people think about it anyway.

Wait.. what DO people in WATMM think about countries that aren't America?! Woah. mind blown here.

The lastest "Go round the office and suck me off" news conference has become almost common place now. That's not right.

Plus our recently elected state governor is going out of his way to kiss his ass. Another reason I'm contemplating a move.

That is what I felt when as a teen I realized most politicians are fake. Well at the time I assumed they were all fake. I remember liking Obama then realizing all that crap about change was just fluff and going 😩 for a while.

I can kinda get some of the fakery though now... you kinda have to have the ability to throw out soundbytes and stuff in America circa 2019.

That's because you probably made a similar angry political post a few months ago, basically remade it today. Now your brain is crossing the streams.

And this is the same guy who claimed at the same event that he wasn't bothered by the DPRK's missile tests, despite regional tensions.

My JASDF homies are arriving in a few days. I wonder what their impressions are of Donnie, and whether they'll inquire about mine. But then again, I don't think any of my Japanese friends have ever brought up politics in conversation for as long as I can remember.

This recent roll he's been on with talking to the Japanese military, shrugging off NK's missiles, and making fun of Joe Biden with his pal Kim are some of the most convincing recent evidence for the rapid disintegration of his frontal lobe. 

And congress is supposed to get his taxes and Deutsche bank records soon, so goddammit let something good happen wtf

There has to be a list somewhere where some guy has been compiling every stupid thing Donald has said since he started his presidential campaign. I wanna relive the classics. gotta rake the floors of the forest.

Why hasn't Mueller testified yet?  He could bury most of these twats with his testimony, clear up Barr's bullshit, and I bet most Americans want to hear what he has to say.

President Donald Trump’s Department of Labor quietly announced last week that it is considering changing the rules of the Family and Medical Leave Act, which grants workers the right to 12 weeks of unpaid leave after childbirth, adoption and for other serious health issues.

The department said it would ask for public input from all interested parties about how to “reduce the administrative and compliance burdens on employers” while trying to “better protect and suit the needs of workers.” The administration would then likely propose a rule change, which would go into effect after 60 days of public comment.

this is great. you know there's nothing that stresses an employee more when he takes time off work because of a family or medical emergency than how much it burdens his employer. now all that can be reduced, and employees can take that burden onto themselves, thus freeing their employers of too much headache so they can reck in that dough.

well, he just released a statement and said if he did, it won't go beyond what's in his report. basically: he cannot charge trump with a crime, even though he could not say trump did not commit a crime. also, he refused to take any questions which was beyond disappointing. 

so yeah- a 2 year investigation wasted. right now, i would say dems aren't in the best shape to win the next election.

ok... i assumed it was more about barr's handling of the report at this point. barr's "summary" and mueller letter as a response. thought he was going to clear that up. the report should speak for itself.

yeah but unless democrats do anything- what good is it?

basically, if i could have told you trump is innocent, i would have. (he isn't). the special council's office doesn't have the authority to indict a sitting president. i'm closing the special council office and resigning my position. also:

I have a petition from thousands of climate scientists in my office saying that that just simply is not the case and that there's not exactly — can't be determined how much global warming is caused by humans burning of fossil fuels and what its time and course will be on the effect of climate in the future.

It's just, on the face of it, wrong. So if you see something wrong, why tie teachers' hands to debate, one side of the debate? Like I said last week, it doesn't become teaching, it's indoctrination. You're indoctrinating the kids to learn one side of a legitimate scientific debate.

The climate does change, so we have ice age every 100,000 years or so. It takes 10,000 years to get out of ice age and about 10,000 years and we are, happen to be enjoying a period of global warming, of relatively warm climate on this globe.

If you — if I was talking to you about 10,000 years ago, we'd be under half mile of ice right now, so thank God for global warming.

A question on — to you — to the proponent is this, you keep hearing this 98 percent of all scientists agree with that. When was the survey done and how was the question asked? Through you, Mr. Speaker.

The greatest thing about his presidency will be that his stupid comments are far more numerous and asinine than Bush Jr's.

I doubt he's actually suffering from any kind of neurodegenerative disease. He's always been this stupid but he's never had such a huge stage to perform on.

I'm really curious about their insights/opinions, if any. Their military and regional geopolitical stakes are so intertwined with US policies, I'm curious how they feel about all of the recent rash, often contridictory directions Trump's administration has taken with China, Philippines and of course the DPRK. The Japanese military has going through a gradual but steady sea change in the last decade or so in terms of mission and away from it's strict and often arbitrary defense only ethos. They've even rolled out amphibious assault carriers, errr, I mean "helicopter destroyers"
