    So last night Trump had an interesting comment and said that he can be more Presidential than anyone, except Lincoln. Really? When might we see that as we are still waiting.

    Delusional. Seriously how can Trump supporters support someone who says this? How is this man not in a mental institution yet?

    A little perspective for comparison:

    At least he doesn't think he is greater that Lincoln. At least there is that. But he really thinks he is better than Ronald Reagan? More presidential than George Washington? Really? :rolleyes:

    I know. That line gave me a good laugh. I'm not sure what you call someone who is funny, but scary as hell at the same time, but that is Mr. Trump.

    Not surprised, this is the same man who purchased a life sized mural painting of himself, I'm surprised his head fits in the oval office.

    I doubt he can surpass Buchanan. At least Buchanan did not start the Civil War, he only sat by and did nothing while it started. Nero only fiddled while Rome burned around him. If it were Trump, he would be setting fire to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.

    The reality distortion field he generates is more noisy but less powerful than the almighty Jobs. :D

    And really we should also be having a conversation about why he is even having a campaign rally in Ohio six months into his presidency where he hasn't really gotten much done. It's rather ridiculous that he uses these rallies as some sort of security blanket every time things aren't going well and he feels needy.

    And then says ridiculous things like this Presidential comment on top of it.

    Most Presidential? Not even close. More like least Presidential.

    Colosseum: 70 CE--80 CE
    Nero: 54 CE -- 68 CE.

    The forum, of course, dates to a much earlier period.

    Next thing you'll tell me is that the fiddle wasn't invented until the 16th century. So Nero fiddling while Rome burned never happened.;)

    Doesn't change the fact that Trump is the most divisive leader 'Murica has been under since King George III. We got feed up with mad King George and started a revolution.

    He was in Ohio yesterday so the local FOX affiliate could televise every revolting moment on the 6:00 PM news and kill our appetite for dinner. At least we didn't eat by that time so nobody vomited.

    Too bad the other two local stations can't get a decent meteoroligist.

    God, I wish he would. I love the fact that he drives the lefties crazier than they already are, but please Mr. President, act like one.

    I actually saw a guy on Trump's facebook account pledge total allegiance and loyalty to Trump this morning, not any other person, even Republican and also say he respected Putin.

    Scary times we live in.

    The republicans problem is that when and if Trump gets ousted from office his base will follow him and not the rest of the party. That 30% of voters will swing then electorate the other way.

    Exactly like that. Sadly. Seeing him in front of the Boy Scouts made me shudder too. The last thing we need is a new youth brigade rising up.

    He must not wanted to offend Republicans. Not many people know that it's the party of Lincoln. Did you know that. It's true. Not many people knew that.

    He certainly isn't more qualified than your local dog catcher, but history will have to judge him by his actions as President.

    I am of the thought his decisiveness over the transgender military service is an example of being quite presidential.

    How about his latest tweet where he essentially takes liberties with the 1A? :)
