He is an embarrassment and takes credit for Obama’s administration getting the economy back in order.

It really sucks that it is president and the figurehead for America.

He is an embarrassment, that I will grant you. But Obama was a do-nothing president who only divided the country with his socialist rhetoric. I blame him for the knee jerk reaction which led to Trump's election.

Hopefully a candidate will emerge and win the next election. But, judging from the current crop of people who are positioning themselves to run, I am not very hopeful.

He is delivering on his campaign promises, which most "swamp" politicians never do...

He has the guts to do the right thing for America...

And yes he will get a second term...

Like "Big Brother" you will learn to love him... rolleyes.gif

You blame Obama for how other people react?

No president is perfect, nor was Obama the best in history... time will tell and best will always be debatable. I think Obama turned around the economy dropped into recession after the Bush jr admin.

I also believe the president is a lot about the image of a country and I think Obama has a much better and more respectable international reputation. Don’t know when you were in Sweden but how often would you hear, “how could you elect that person as president”

If anything I think it brought out a lot of latent racist feelings and anger, not so much because of his politics but because of his skin color.

I’m fairly young so, historically, I just remember a large amount of political discontent with bush jr. but it was NEVER as raw as it is now... and I think it is due to what I mentioned above and trump has just built on this and flamed it up. Trump pours gasoline on a fire amongst the people he is supposed to be president of... it’s just crazy.

I love the clip of Obama grilling trump after his birth certificate was released. It’s just funny.

Yea, he’s the record holder for longest govt shutdown in US history because he childishly can’t get what he wants which is money for a wall that he promised Mexico will be paying for.

Totally delivering.



Why not ask your sweetheart trump to buy an island that he and all his followers can have all to their own, where he will be king and you his loyal servants. That sound nice for your big brother wet dream?

You could all build a huge wall around the island... and just do whatever.

Obama scammed the system to get a free college education, claiming to be Kenyan. Then, when it came time to run for President, suddenly he was a natural born American. That is why he can never release his college records. Sometimes he claimed to be Christian, other times Muslim. A chameleon that changed colors to suit his current needs. That is just indicative of the type of person that he is. He also was a very divisive President who actually made race relations worse instead of unifying the country as he should have. The great hope turned out to be a disappointment.

And, yes, I believe that his divisiveness and smug elitism led people to be so disappointed in the status quo that they over-reacted and elected Trump in the misguided hope that an outsider could turn things around. Perhaps that could happen but, in my opinion, Trump is not the man to do this. He is too busy feeding his own ego.

Ehhhhh, I dunno. Obama is gone anyways. You are going off conspiracy theories... there’s also one where it says he claimed to be Indonesian to scam the system.

He did release his birth certificate... which was racist anyways... the only president to ever have that happen to them... meanwhile trump has still yet to release his tax records.

I know we are on the same page against trump. I just can’t believe all the belly aching people did over Obama and then think what trump is doing is ok? Or more when attacking the character.

You are in America now... what has trump really done other than sustain the economic progress Obama set off? Maybe you will feel his “successes” come April 15th? Don’t know for sure but I heard the middle class will be hit hard. As a teacher I assume you are middle class.

Trump is the Swamp Thing, the Creature from the Black Lagoon. How could people be so fooled by one of the people who helped create the swamp we see now.

Yea, I really wonder what kind of candidates will be moving to the top... it’ll be interesting.



Trump feeding his ego...

TheDonald is doing so well that the only platform the Liberalist/Socialist/Communist Democratic Party can use to be elected is composed of hatred, lies, jealousy and ignorance, they and their supporters are not even as intelligent as Orwell's sheep!!!

America will be great again!!!

Yay!!! Yippee!!! laugh.gif

"elected...composed of hatred, lies, jealousy and ignorance, ...his supporters are not even as intelligent as Orwell's sheep"

You're referring to Trumpsty, right?

Roger Stone arrested by the FBI and indicted today...or is that just fake news...Trump is going down, one way or another...you think his spin-doctor can't worm his way out, and put pressure on the train-wreck that is Trumpsty Dumpsty?

I can't wait to see the "billionaire" scumbag wearing the traditional orange jumpsuit (and I'm not really the lefty liberal nutter type)!

Has ever there been an ego, such as Trumpsty's, so toxic to its host?
