So another poster gave the following example of Obama supposedly being belligerent with reporters in comparison to how Trump is often belligerent with reporters:



Personally, I don't see the resemblance. In fact, I thought Obama handled that reporter with grace and dignity (and he actually answered his question).

Compare that to:



In the education field we are taught how to keep control of the classroom through a calm sternness. Obama demonstrated that well in the first video. Trump... not so much. In fact, he escalated the situation, especially when he threw out the insults (imagine if a teacher called your child a 'terrible person'). It is just yet another example of Trump's failure as a leader.

Given the nearly complete failure of the basic education system as well as the University I am not taking lectures from educators on proper conduct particularly seriously.

Trump's a winner, Obama is a loser.

The numbers do not lie. Obama reminds me of his brother-in-law Craig who was the head coach at Oregon State.

Craig was apparently a good guy.... a good motivator who recruited well but they never won and Craig was fired.

Do not neglect the history between them.

Such as when Acosta gets caught lying about the president.

"CNN reporter CAUGHT spreading Trump lies"

"Wednesday, Acosta was caught red handed using an “anonymous source” to spread a nasty lie about Trump to tens of thousands of readers — and so far has refused to apologize.

When Trump went to visit House Majority Whip Steve Scalise in the hospital, who in critical condition after an apparent assassination attempt by a liberal terrorist, Acosta was ready with a quote from an “anonymous source” — which critics say Acosta made up.

At 9:44 pm, Acosta quoted an unnamed White House official to spread what has called a left-wing conspiracy theory on the president on Twitter, saying: “WH official on hospital visit: ‘President Trump did not meet with Scalise and did not go into the room where Scalise is being treated.'”"


So petty.

Another official setting.

Perhaps some basic rules are now required since these political operatives larping as "reporters" are unable to be civil.

I'd say the loser is the snowflake that go so triggered he started to retreat. :lol:

I’m thinking you are referring to the one leaving the podium?

He probably meant the one that struck the intern trying to do her job.

So is this where we are - Obama would make a better 5th teacher than Trump?

LAFFFRIOT

Actually the answer isn't what you think. Obama is boooooooooooooooooooooooooring and Trump has a gift for connecting with people in very simple language.

That's why he pulled off the biggest upset in US political history.
It's the politcal version of the US beating Russia in the 1980 Olympics.

Of course if he was teaching 5th graders he would have to back off the ussy-pay talk

Lulz. Obama won the office of the POTUS twice. Trump may not finish out his first.

That you can't face that fact is delicious.

A communist community organizer, or a billionaire capitalist? The latter, for sure.

I notice the
guy questioning Obama actually shut up, Acosta didn't.

So, who taught the teacher that beatdown a student in front of the rest of his class?

A literal cat would make for a better president than tRump.

Heck, the stuff that comes out of a cat's butt would make a better president than tRump.

Obama's a loser? Let's see, Columbia University B.A., Harvard Juris Doctor summa cum laude, president of the Harvard Law Revue, President of the United States. Yeah, what a loser, born poor and rose about as high as you can in US society, whereas Trump was born on third base and has been bragging about hitting a triple ever since.

Neither. I'd want an actual teacher. Questions like this are stupid.

President Obama was a great community organizer, helped a lot of people get and keep jobs and generally improved peoples lives.

Trump was a con-man, went bankrupt multiple times, scammed people out of their money, refused to pay for work he contracted for, defaulted on loans, sold inferior products for exorbitant prices and has generally ****ed over anyone that's done business with him, used women and laughed at them for letting him … all … time and time again. After his casino's went bankrupt he's quoted as telling a friend, "see that beggar … he has more money than I do"; in fact before "the Apprentice" he was selling hamburgers on TV. He's only been successful when scamming someone … like the people that voted for him and continue to support him. Trump as ruined peoples live with everything he's touched.

Did you mean the "latter, for sure" is the biggest loser! Looks that way doesn't it.

Some might think it's a step up from discussing Michelle Obama saying "like" a lot, so it seems we are improving where we are.

I think an easy way to answer the question to look at who has actually been a teacher, vs. who has made believe he was a teacher at a fraudulent university.

Obama was a law professor for 12 years at the University of Chicago Law School. Trump Organization ran the for profit Trump University, which scammed it's students, and agreed to pay a $25 million dollar settlement to avoid further penalties.

It's a very easy choice.

I doubt it.

Alexandra Ocasio Cortez in a stinging commentary about where we really are in this country said quite appropriately after viewing photos of herself taken without her knowledge with some of the most ridiculous tag lines and captions imaginable for 2018 said "if I wear a burlap sake they wait till I pass and take a photo of my backside. If I wear an off the rake dress, they wait till I pass and take a photo of my backside."

I am a father, have a daughter and a son for that matter. To be honest I have just about had it with the American male and the horse dung he slings day in and day out at women.

Weak sauce. Less than 30 minutes after Acosta posted the erroneous tweet he corrected it. We’re still waiting for Trump to correct thousands of deliberate falsehoods.
He probably meant the one that struck the intern trying to do her job.
Bull s***. The video proves that did not happen.
President Obama taught law at Chicago U.
Obama taught Constitutional law for a dozen years. Trump ran a fraudulent “university”, scamming consumers out of millions of dollars.
