Personally I'm hoping that every single award winner at the Oscars (plus a handful of nominees and other attendees) makes a jab at him and then he'll finally give up at the prospect of having so many people to tweet about.

I'm content to wait until Trump gets in to power and see what he actually does before I attack him. I am really hoping that the responsibility that comes with being President of the US makes him mature, just slightly.

So, it turns out that Trump is a dinosaur. This is just too funny.

it's rather amusing to see that trump wants so badly to be part of the hollywood crowd yet he keeps insulting them at every chance on twitter. trump is such an assclown, smh. he's like a schoolyard bully with some power now.

i do believe this character we elected to the highest office in the land, is gonna deliver his State of the Union Address via the twitter portal at say 3am in the morning. how low can we sink as a nation, when even washed up ex-reality showtards like snooki are shaking their heads in disgust.

Well there it is fellow forum frequenters. One President Trump.

It wasn't a bad speech, I wonder if he wrote it himself.

Yeah, it was pretty nice. He sounded like a Grandpa. In the good way.

Well Captain Cheeto is turning out to be dangerously cheesy :/
1. Wins election, then commences to complian that illegals cost him the popular vote, and says he's going to investigate this "fraud" (which there is no evidence of).
2. Again, won election, but complains that media lied about the size of his inaguration crowd.
3. Pushes exec. Orders through for the pipelines, so yep ignoring Native american rights, and screwing the environment because apparently the only jobs we can create involve oil.
4. Issueing Gag order for the EPA, USDA afterwards.
5. Sent out a tweet threatening to send the Feds into Chicago to curb murder issue at 2 am ( I was worried that he was going to invade another country, but Illinois is closer I guess :/ hrh
6. Still threatening to "make" Mexico pay for his wall.
7. "Alternative facts" no such thing, pick up a dictionary, you have fact, and fiction, and that's it.
8. He did kill TPP, so 1 point for the clown, but overall he seems to be the dangerous, protectionist narcissist I have feared, hang on, its going to get bumpy.

Sadly if it wasn't real, it'd be hilarious, like an episode of south park, ex. Pres. Trump calls up the president of Mexico and says, if they can't take care of those "bad hombres" down there, we (the US) will help. Seriously, Mo'at's words never rang so true. "Insanity"

I wouldn't say the fact that he got elected as a Republican candidate has that much to do with his policies - indeed many in the GOP very much opposes Trump and many of his views.

As a non-American, I do find it interesting how polarizing US politics is in dividing everything between the "republican" and "democrat" views with very little ambiguity or wiggle room inbetween. Goes to show the limitations of the two-party, winner-takes-all system, where you simply have to vote for the candidate with the least policies you disagree with. Compare to Sweden which has 10+ parties where each party gets power proportional to the amount of votes. Makes it easy to say, vote for an environmentalist-centered or other specialized party without feeling like you're wasting your vote, and it also makes for a way less polarized, two-sides society overall when discussing political views. In the US in some ways you're generally one or the other, in Sweden you have a more complex mesh of views.

Trump's certainly in my opinion both extremely incompetent and a horrible human being, but also shows how the American system doesn't work well to begin with - Bernie had the right idea I think to embrace Scandinavian models in may aspects of government. Of course, as a Scandinavian I say that with some amount of bias
