True - they do not obsess over estimates of crowd size or how high the hamburgers were piled. Ya gotta go to MSNBC for that useful information.

 

The good thing about the Trump followers, is that they follow the script religiously.  Whatever that script happens to be for that day.

The only person that I have seen  exagerate the crowd that attended his swearing of the President was Trump and his chief of Staff  I cannot recall his name he's not there any  longer.

So, if exagereations are your thing I can see as to why the Trump followers are always with him.


 


I got no script today. What are you talking about?


The the post with content comprising a denial is almost convincing...

You mean that you think MSNBC is now President?

Huh!!!!!!

Trump has obsessed over the crowd size whenever he gave a talk. He goes so far to demand that the National Park Service change their estimate .

A valid point. Here we have a situation where the value of physical barriers is under discussion. The President has the responsibility for national security (including border security). He is attempting to find a way to do that in the partisan environment established by the Dems who seem to see that more important.

 

Bridges to No Where & Memorials to sitting Presidents are not worthwhile

Agreed. What has that to do with this topic?

 

If Trump decides tomorrow that building a artificial island between Cancun Mexico - Havana Cuba - Miami Florida would help reduce drug smuggling - human trafficking & illegal immigration - and act as deterrent to Russia in staging hypersonic nuclear missles in Cuba

Where do you get this stuff??? BTW - what is the rest of that sentence?

 

A idea BTW that probably makes more sense than a Wall - should American Tax Payers just automatically be on the hook for the expense without any factual justification - just on Trumps word?

The answer may be quite simple and two-fold.

 

First, he is the elected President and having been elected as a Republican, it is reasonable to expect support from Republicans.

 

Secondly, the Dems have turned even further left as the Marxists come out of the closet and since Marxism is anathema to the Republicans, they see him as a stop-gap to the desires of the Dems.

 

It seems a more mature logic than something about a stained diaper on a balloon.


Here is part of the Republican Platform from 2012 - it's actually Quite Typically Traditonally Republican....................................it is Diametrically Opposite of The Trump Doctrine

 

 

GOP platform 2012.png

 

 

Nothing About - Nationalism

 

Nothing About - White Supremacy

 

Nothing About - Expansion of Executive Power & Authority of the President & Capitulation by Congress to it

 

 

True - nothing about nationalism because I would think that placing the interests of the US first an foremost in international dealings would be a given for any American President or Party.

 

True - nothing about White Supremacy in the platform nor in the Administration.

 

True - nothing about the expansion of the Executive Branch in the platform nor in the actions of President Trump.



The US House - a Co-Equal Branch of the US Government disagrees

 

They recently passed a resolution condemning Trump Unconstitutional Attempt to circumvent the Congress by declaring a National Emergency where none exists simply because he's the First President in History who could not get funds approved for a - Pet Project

 

This same Resolution is being forced by Parliamentary Procedure to be voted upon in the Senate - so we will see if Trump is or is not expanding the Executive Branch Powers

 

Also this same US House is finally taking it's contitutional oath and responsibilities seriously and almost every House Committee is exercising it Oversight Responsibilities to actually make a final determination about whether or not the Trump is a President of attempting to be a Dictator & Despot and further the spiral of the US into a Kleptocracy

 

We have two coequal Branches of government involved. The President was unable to get the Congress to do it's job to support him in doing his job on national security through funding. He still understands it is his job and is testing the waters as to how he can discharge his responsibilities. Hardly dictatorial or despotic or klepto.
