    Default Why I Dislike President Trump

    He practices divisive politics. He demagogues minorities and uses them as scapegoats to blame the troubles of society on people with the least power.

    He sets a standard for treating women as objects, admitting that he can grab them inappropriately when he wants and the Republican Party never voices their opposition.

    He is a narcissist at a time when the focus needs to be on solving our problems rather than glorifyng him.

    He wants old solutions to new problems when the old solutions have been proven not to work.

    He favors the privledged rich over the working poor.

    He would deny universal health care as a basic human right.

    He is shortsighted.

    He lies.

    He is corrupt.

    --> That's my solution to the Don't Feed the Troll problem. Anyone else?

    I'll see your nine and raise you two, CW; he's a blowhard who consciously appeals to the lowest form of so-called "conservative" constituent.

    President Obama divided people, he used the police as scapegoats.

    He encouraged minorities to “act out”.




    He sets a standard for treating women as objects, admitting that he can grab them inappropriately when he wants and the Republican Party never voices their opposition.

    Thump is like most other “powerful men” a a$$hole in this regard. BUT he hires a lot of women and minorities to jobs most other Presidents haven’t done so.





    He is a narcissist at a time when the focus needs to be on solving our problems rather than glorifyng him.

    Like Obama, and his wife who “was never proud of America” until her husband was elected POTUS.
    All politician are narcissist , that probably why Jimmy Carter was such a failure as POTUS, he wasn’t fully narcissistic. Therefore he couldn’t commint to his ideas.






    He wants old solutions to new problems when the old solutions have been proven not to work.


    Walls or barriers work, you can deny it , but at the airport , at the super bowl , at just about any event you care to name , walls or barriers prevent people for migrating.



    He favors the privledged rich over the working poor.

    My tax refund last years was quite nice, haven’t done this years taxes yet.






    He would deny universal health care as a basic human right.


    I used to have adaquate heath care, that I could also afford, Once the ACA came into play my rates jumped 68% over night , a year later my provider , for what ever reason decided to stop insuring people in my county. Now I’ve found some other HC , but it rarely pays for any thing, fortunately I’ve been healthy. Two years for Medicare , which some say is socialize medicine , BUT seeing I’ve paid into it to 45 or 50 years I don’t really see it that way.



    He is shortsighted.

    Define that?


    He lies.

    All political tell lies or fibs , look at Warren , and the list is long on that one, endless really.

    He is corrupt.


    Prove it? Mueller’s been digging for two years , Ozzie’s promised he’d be gone , what six , eight , 10 times???

    I don't like Trump because he's anti-American. His success is in large part due to a reluctance to acknowledge this, appreciate the significance, and act accordingly.

    One may confront trolls directly or at second hand. Confronting them directly feeds them but gives a clearer picture to those who need a clearer picture, which is not the trolls.

    I think there will be a lot of whining, backtracking and revisionist history being laid out by many of the Trumpista right wingers when the full extent of Donald's criminality becomes clear.

    Donald is just the visible face of the monster.

    I think there are likely 20 or so 'Republican' Senators who will be swept up by Mueller.

    Defrauding The United States, and Conspiring to Defraud The United States is serious juju.

    When the blatant criminality of the 'Republican' Party becomes clear . . .

    I have been making chemicals for a living for almost 40 years now. I work in a business where people have known to have been killed, and to kill others. Statistically it is one of the safest industries in the United States, but one guy making one mistake can have severely negative effects upon others, their families, etc.

    I always say, when mentoring younger guys in my business, that the most dangerous person working in a plant is the one who knows everything there is to know about it. A person who claims to know it all is the one who is going to get you hurt, if not worse. Confidence is one thing. Stupid hard-headeness is another entirely. And I don't want to be around that person.

    That pretty much answers why I am not a big fan of this president.

    Trump is a con man from way back.

    The right-wing wackos love his lies because he says things they want to believe.

    Tribalism is family and extended family.

    I hate him because he is the embodiment of a personality type that views coarseness, selfishness, dishonesty, materialism, ego, endless consumption, xenophobia and, above all, ignorance as virtues.
    I rather be an American than a Republican.

    I hate a liar.

    What more needs to be said?

    No doubt some Trump apologists will be tempted to respond, "All politicians lie."

    My reply is this: None ever so prolifically and unashamedly. None has ever been so confident that his base would swallow his lies whole.

    He told you up front about his playboy years and never claimed to have a moral compass unlike the dems. who brag on their self righteous racist ways.

    He also told you up front what he was going to do, and now he is doing it, the radical left along with half of south America are climbing the wall.

    Yup, screwing women was his Viet Nam. Give him a purple heart RonW. Dems get rid of their own when the cross the line, Republicans put them on a pedestal.

    I'm gonna guess here, a right wing poll which it is.Right up there with there FOX polls. Trump hasn't gone above 50% since he was elected. Nice to see that you found d on e to support your agenda RonW.

    The ONLY poll that has him t 52 is Rasmussen Reports/Pulse Opinion Research which is NOTORIOUSLY super right leaning and gets the lowest mark on acuracy of ANY polls.

    what is Trump's moral compass
    It doesn't matter. Trump's background as a philandering playboy and any number of questionable business practices meant Trump could not run as a moral leader.

    And indeed, he did not. Quite to the contrary.

    No, Trump's amorality is a feature, not a bug.
