From the USA Today Link: “"It’s a disgrace what’s happening in our country," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. "But other than that, I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas."

He's certainly right that what's happening in our country is a disgrace. He's just got the wrong "what" in mind.

He feels so sorry for himself, doesn't he? Listening to him whine on the phone to the troops on Christmas Day makes me want to puke. Trump doesn't know anything about sacrifice for the country like service members. He can't even properly acknowledge what they do.

He doesn't actually know what they do. He never will. More than that he really doesn't care.

He could end the disgrace of what is happening, and he could go off and do whatever he pleases. All he has to do is resign. Easy, peasy.

Yes there was, but I think he was unaware of what was going on in his own campaign.

Another Trump hate thread

Why don't you start a Trump Love thread? You have the power. If it's your thread you can begin it any way you want.

To be honest, I don't believe that you nor anyone else has enough documented material to do much at all with a Trump Love thread. If you have documented proof that Donald Trump is worthy of much love and adoration go for it! Show the world how it is wrong when they denigrate him. It will be your chance to make a difference. Step up and educate the board, educated the world.

You've got the information, the sources and the ability. Step up, mate and show us the way, the truth and the light. Be the change you want to see. Start a Trump Love thread.

Donald Trump makes Christmas calls to troops, denies collusion and defends shutdown stand

Shutdown: Donald Trump makes Christmas calls, denies Russia collusion

1. If Trump hadn't have fired every mother's son in the White House it wouldn't be empty. Being alone is his making and damn sure his choice.

2. As someone said, Trump can mount up and jet over to Afghanistan for the holidays. He wouldn't be alone. He would be surrounded by American fighting men and women.

As we know almost every fecking one of them would be pissed plenty for being ordered to spiff up and report for a mandatory Trump meet and greet. Career officers might find it interesting but NCOs down to E-1s will hate it. OK, there will be a few Trump cultists in uniform who might get a stiffy just seeing Trump. The vast majority of troops would not be thrilled. But Trump wouldn't be alone at Christmas blubbering at his desk at how unfortunate he is. No doubt Troops in a war zone would just love to hear that from Trump. :roll:

I think Trump love threads are just as bad as Trump hate threads. The idea is this isn't whether you love or hate the man based on what you herd through your media sources. It a what policies were enacted and whether we think they are good or bad. Or what policies are being debated and whether they are good our bad. What problems do we see that need to be corrected and how our vision would be to solve them and whether those ideas are good or bad. Mindless self-loathing over hate and love of a man, a position, is just beneath us as human beings.

But if he starts a Trump porn thread, a bunch of liberals might come and ruin everyone's erections.

We only know the policies because of the media reporting them.

Most presidents visit the troops overseas, especially those in harms way.

Not this yokel. Never. Commander ChickenSpurs can only call or tweet

CSpan is media. It's just the official government organ. I guess if you trust politicians, it's fine.

I find that hard to believe. He has run his own show his entire life. It seems becoming president hasn’t changed that.
