If this isn't justification for a 25th amendment solution, then nothing is. A blithering idiot.

How come, when he makes statements such as "Many companies are moving into the US", why does no one ask him to name some?

Something like were taking billions of dollars into our Treasury, and hurting China, he does realize Americans are paying those billions?

He has no clue, and neither do most of the people paying it and voting for him.

In an unwieldy press conference, President Trump declined to say whether he believes Brett Kavanaugh's accusers, and called allegations against his Supreme Court nominee part of a “con job.” Trump also went on to suggest that George Washington had a “bad past.” It was the president's first conference in 587 days.

Trump: Look, if we brought George Washington here and we said, we have George Washington, the Democrats would vote against him. Just so you understand. And he may have had a bad past, who knows, you know? He may have had some—I think accusations made. Didn't he have a couple of things in his past? George Washington would be voted against 100 percent by Schumer and the con artists. I mean 100 percent. 100 percent. So it really doesn't matter from their standpoint.

10. Trump On His General Assembly Address: ‘They Were Laughing With Me’

Trump: I was in front of a large group of highly professional people, most of whom are from either other countries or the United Nations, people that aren't big into clapping, applauding, smiling, and I heard a little rustle as I said our country is now stronger than ever before. It is true. I mean it is true. I heard a little rustle, and I said, it is true. And I heard smiles. I said, I didn't know there would be—they weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me. We had fun. That was not laughing at me. So the fake news said, people laughed at President Trump. They didn't laugh at me. People had a good time with me. We were doing it together. We had a good time. They respect what I've done. The United States is respected again.

I truly feel bad for those trying to negotiate with him, especially the Canadian team trying to negotiate NAFTA. I'm afraid he is going to cause great harm to both our counties economies.

The entire press conference (his first I am told) was nothing more than a cry for attention.

I just watched a rebroadcast of the press conference on YouTube.

I don't know how to categorize his behavior.

It's like watching "The Madness of King George" .

Well, now we know why his handlers don’t want him to hold press conferences. Dumber than a post, and crazier than a $hithouse rat.

They laughed at him at the UN, but he makes me want to retch, then weep.

You’ve been asking a question for ten minutes,” Trump fired back. “Please sit down. Go ahead. Go ahead.”

Jiang held onto the microphone and asked her question: “How did that impact your opinions on the allegations against –”

“It does impact my opinion,” Trump cut in. “You know why? Because I’ve had a lot of false charges made against me. I’m a very famous person. Unfortunately. I’ve been a famous person for a long time. But I’ve had a lot of false charges made against me. Really false charges. I know friends that have had false charges. People want fame, they want money, they want whatever.”

The Dems would be mindlessly against George Washington a hundred percent because he probably had some things.

Tell Rod it's time. But yannow, if they bring the twenty-fifth, if they come at him with the twenty-fifty, he'll hit back twice as hard and hit 'em with a fiftieth.

King Donald has indeed made America great again- a great laughing stock for the rest of the world.
I hope you get out of this mess soon.

I was going to make a smart remark about what to do about an 'unhinged President'. But it's a very serious matter. There's a gap, a gulf in world affairs and someone will fill it if the US does not. The world is skating on thin ice.

Trump came in with contempt for the State Dept. He and his handlers intentionally weaked the State Dept. Undercutting Tillerson, blowing past protocols. His schtick is developing policy based on his campaign strategy appealing to resentments and sense of victimhood. It’s crazy, there he was, president of “the richest, most powerful nation” talking at the UN how everyone is screwing us over but that’s over because Trump is in the house.

what a sh!tshow

If his minders are part of a palace plot to unseat the Pres, and save the Republican Party. Pence in it??
Why else would they turn him loose for that unhinged press conference?

We listened with some family who are supporters. My teenaged daughter said, at one point, “Well, at least he ain’t uppity, like the last guy, huh.”

You don't get it, birlinn, his supporters, the Stumps, just don't care. They think it was a strong performance. They truly live in an alternate reality, and the sooner that US voters heed my signature, the better.
