    Why stop at Chicago when the entire US needs marshal law to understand 1.5 million people attended Trump's inauguration?
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    There is no evidence that diaglo cares about 2nd, 3rd, 3.5th, 4th or 5th edition people!

    Martin Van Buren is the one true president. All others are pale imitations.

    He's mentally deficit, and so is anyone who thinks that this is true.

    No, not insane. His administration called the voting numbers fraudulent. An NPR journalist called them out on it during a press conference, more or less saying "That would be fraud on an astronomical level. Why isn't your administration calling for an investigation? If you found nothing, then that would greatly reassure the public that Democracy works, wouldn't it?"

    Hopefully the Dems will continually embarrass and humiliate him because it's working.

    Sadly, the Dems are the stupid party.

    Correct. Not insane. Just juvenile and petty.

    This is about Trump throwing a fucking toddler fit that he only won an electoral victory. This is us footing the bill for his ego.

    He's not insane - he knows exactly what he's doing, and that's far worse.

    He's being worked over by the media, and they're not going to let up because he's so easy to push around.

    He exposed his soft underbelly (egotistical narcissism), got wounded on day 1 (miserable attendance at his inauguration and parade) and now the sharks have begun getting a whiff of blood in the water.

    It's and old story with the infotainment industry. Build the focus up to heroic levels, then tear the hero apart. This may or may not be followed up with a redemption story, depending upon the actions of the primary focus.

    This narrative has proved time and again it puts eyes on glass and sells soap.

    Do they actually say it as clearly as you do it in your post?

    I wish sometimes people were talking more clearly on his bullshit. Or maybe that's not possible? IIRC, his strategy is basically saying so much (often contradictory) bullshit that you can't really keep up discussing or disproving anything.

    I'm trying to track down a copy of the audio, but essentially, it was about as direct as what's in my post.

    PUHLEASE!

    Yes, a body composed of Nobel Laureates composed of drama queens. Not sure why you think nobel laureates can't also be drama queens, but the Bulletin's clock bullshit demonstrates they're very comfortable being drama queens. It is a scare tactic. It can only work once. You can't tell people you're mere minutes from ending the planet....for decades. Once you go a single decade without ending the world, and then you do it again and we go again without any world ending, and then again, at some point you just fucking roll your eyes and acknowledge it for what it is - meaningless scare tactics. There is a reason the Crying Wolf tale is for kids - adults should have learned that lesson by the time they become adults.

    They did it the entire election, and he won. In fact his numbers often went up when the Dems went after him more, or the media went after him more (which was often the same thing). Meanwhile popular opinion of both the Dems and Media went down. You keep on with the "it's working" though. I am sure if you repeat the same mistake over and over again it will become not a mistake, right?

    Some Presidents are vulnerable to the "throw everything against the wall and see if something sticks approach" and some Presidents are "teflon" in nature and are only vulnerable to focused fire on a handful of key issues of a long period of time. Trump is one of the later...but the Democrats and media have not figured that out yet.
