so bottom line is trump probably bungled the election on purpose. he doesn't want it anymore. in a way he has disappointed his religious right constituents.

he bungled race relations.

he bungled coronavirus

he continues to bungle them

we now know vital information. a president who is biochemically addicted to negative feedback from his twitter feed is no good to USA.

social media is addictive and wrong.

trump is addicted to twitter and is unusable.

this may not be my final say on the legacy of the trump presidency.

he did a lot of good.

ultimately forces beyond his control, much like Nixon, were his downfall.

fake catholic biden may be the last president of the united states. pure unadulterated evil.

We can only hope you're right.

He can use whatever whiny childish excuse he wants as long as he's the hell out of there in November.

by forces beyond Nixon's control do you mean "getting caught being involved in illegal actions".

And i don't know how can you blame trump's situation on "forces beyond his control" in the very same post in which you repeatedly accuse him of bungling various situations. A normal person would generally place "not being shit at his job" as being very much within his control but i guess you're just displaying the type of thinking that come with being afflicted with tdss.

god can use anybody even addicts. however it appears that trump's twitter addiction has broken his presidency irrevocably. no one's going to be happy under biden, except perhaps those involved in the unborn genocide.

Uh, holy shit?
WAIT -- AIDES CAN'T REACH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WHEN HE'S GOLFING?

quote:
quote:
President Donald Trump set off a "five-alarm fire" in the White House on Sunday morning after he retweeted a video of one of his supporters saying "white power," according to two White House officials.

The video remained on the president's Twitter page, where he has 82 million followers, for more than three hours because White House officials couldn't reach him to ask him to delete it, the two officials said. The president was at his golf club in Virginia and had put his phone down, the officials said


.
Are they really telling us that the president of the United States might be unreachable at times when he's golfing? Are they telling us that if, for instance, hijacked planes were headed toward a New York skyscraper, the Pentagon, and some other target in D.C., the president might be incommunicado for several hours because he left his iPhone in his locker? Seriously?

Did the Secret Service agents accompanying Trump also leave their phones in the locker room? What about Lindsey Graham? He was with Trump -- did he not have his cell with him either?

Re: Uh, holy shit?
There was a story I heard once about soldiers on duty spotting an invading fleet and trying to call the leader but he was sleeping and so could not be disturbed. Can't remember which Head of State that might have been.

Re: Bounty hunting
Re: Russians pay bounties for killing American soldiers.

Appears that not only did Trump get briefed on the claims, in writing, but also was given evidence supporting the claims back in February.

Russians deliberately target US soldiers for death and their Commander-in-Chief ignored the threat.

Data on Financial Transfers Bolstered Suspicions That Russia Offered Bounties

He knew. He did nothing.

Not only is the man incompetent as C-in-C he is actively a danger to the services and the nation.

I know it doesn't meet the letter of the law but this is as treasonous as you can get without crossing the line.

I would counter that the fact that he is a a piece of shit doomed his presidency from the start

Confirmation
Busted: Taliban commanders admit Russia is paying to murder US soldiers as Trump calls cash-for-killings a ‘hoax’

quote:
Two current Taliban commanders and one former Taliban commander have confirmed to Business Insider “that Russia pays extremists in Afghanistan to attack US soldiers.”

“The Taliban sources were clear that this took place, and said Iran and Pakistan do it too,” Business Insider, a right-leaning news site, adds in its report.

Russia is not only paying cash – via wire transfers as The New York Times reports – to the Taliban to kill Americans, but “Taliban commanders have confirmed” Russia has also offered “material support to its members in exchange for attacking US forces in Afghanistan.”

The former Taliban commander, now a refugee in Greece, explains that the Russians “did not spend the money because we are friends. They spent it to kill their American enemies.”

How Trump corrupts Government
When Hurricane Dorian neared the US Trump incorrectly claimed that Alabama was likely to be hit. Strangely an unsigned tweet from the Birmingham National Weather Service supported Trump.

It’s turned out that the tweet was ordered by the Commerce Department who decided that covering for Trump was more important than accurate weather warnings. And of course Trump later appeared with a map altered with a sharpie to agree with his mistake.

The full report on what happened was due to be released on Monday, but the Commerce Department are demanding redactions and digging their heels in to delay the report as much as they can.

See this on Ars Technica

A summary that was released on Monday - with redactions. The conclusions - quoted by Ars Technica are:

I. The Department led a flawed process that discounted NOAA participation.
II. The Department required NOAA to issue a Statement that did not further NOAA’s or the National Weather Service's interests.

III. The Department failed to account for the public safety intent of the National Weather Service Birmingham tweet and the distinction between physical science and social science messaging.

IV. One NOAA employee deleted relevant text messages, and the Department’s federal records guidance is outdated.

So, under Trump, the President’s errors are a PR problem that must be handled by pretending that he’s right. At least where the Commerce Department is involved.

I wonder how much of that applies to Government messaging regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and how many American lives it’s cost.
