Yes, I have TDS. How can you not. This guy must have a 1" penis to be so insecure about everything.

Damn, my 401k is going down the tubes if I don't vote for him again...

Style vs substance, and the other choice was Hillary Clinton.

Yes, I absolutely did not want to vote for another Clinton. I would have, however, voted for Sanders in a heartbeat (I can hear multiple heads exploding)

Time will tell. He's shown a pretty good feel for how to use hyperbole. Maybe you know better than him.

Other than the obvious hyperbole, I don't see anything counterfactual in his statements. What has he done that is negative for American Jews?

And yet if you believe the mass media, you would think that he is building death camps in the desert and any moment will start the death trains rolling toward these camps.

stuper,

It's absolutely the hyperbole. Vote for me or your 401ks are down the tubes. Vote for me or you Jews are being disloyal. Go back to the countries you came from. I want to buy Greenland!

Did you hear my freaking head explode? It just did!

Why should your head explode? If you know it's hyperbole, why does it bother you? And when did you start thinking that any politician actually means anything that he says?

Are you worried that the Europeans will think we are uncouth because we no longer have a suave, urbane president like Obama? Who cares what they think? Take Merkel for example. She's killing Germany by letting too many immigrants in. At least we have a president who at least says that he cares about defending/protecting his country. I couldn't care less if the rest of the world thinks that he's uncouth. And truth be told, it's really just the mass media who wants us to think that they all think he's uncouth. In fact, much of the world has some grudging respect for a guy who's willing to make hyperbolic statements and stick his neck out. They probably see better than we do how he plays the media to his advantage.

The problem is, he doesn't stick his neck out. He reverses or BSes on nearly every single thing! You cannot know where he is going next. There is zero strategy or plan, it is literally how he feels that day.

--2 weeks ago he was going to push meaningful background checks and was not worried about a slippery slope. Today, the exact opposite.

--Mexico is going to pay for the wall, then not.

--Slamming Obama for all his golfing he did, while he does significantly more

--Happy about leaks when it was other people, but pissed when about him

--Employment rate significantly understated with other presidents, but apparently right on the money with him

--Tariffs? Yes, next week. No, delayed. Yes, next month. No, delayed.

--Medical pricing reform, zero talk about it once he's become president

--He gets upset that Denmark's PM called the Greenland idea absurd.

--Payroll tax cuts, we're looking at them. We're not. We are. We're not.

He is a terrible role model for kids in America.

Agreed. But you could say the thing about just about any other politician. Most of them just hide it a bit better. The only real role model that counts for children is their parents and possibly a few other adults that they may have a lot of contact with.

Life in my neighborhood is just about the same as it was a week ago, a month ago, a year ago, 10 years ago. The sun still shines, the grass still grows, my income and expenses are relatively the same, my family still loves each other, I still have frequent dinners with friends, I still go to church every week and hear inspiring sermons and receive the gifts of Jesus. But I'm one of those weird types who tries not to worry about things I can't control, and I rarely watch TV news, or much TV at all for that matter. Life is so much more peaceful that way. 8)
