I never thought I would see a late night comedian telling the President of the United States to go to hell, and they get a standing ovation for it.

I don’t know how we come back from this.

We'll come back from it when Trump is out of office and someone who follows normal adult standards takes his place. Trump is an anomaly not just among presidents, but among human beings in general.

While, I'm not a fan of NowThis, that was the first thing I thought of. The second was it's OK to be a subordinate wife from "corrupt" countries but it's not OK to be from "corrupt" countries, which says to me what you think of the humanity of women. But then I have to remember Melenia is an Einstein and Ilhan is just an elected Congresswoman.

Yup. You either join the cult of personality, or you aren't an American anymore. When a leader consistently decries any criticism of himself as criticism of the country itself, he's become a dangerous demagogue and he needs to be removed from office.

The bar is permanently lowered. The stink of Trump will permiate the White House for decades. Decades of decades. Or at least as long as we're around to smell it.

I'm not seeing the point of bringing up the length of time someone has been a citizen. It shouldn't be relevant. What's relevant is that they are a citizen.

Who looks at that and says "wow"? :?

I mean, he's been openly bragging about his sexual escapades to anyone who listens (and many times even those trying not to) for the better part of 5 decades. Of course anyone with a brain knows he's a scumbag with women. And those that don't will see these videos as just proof that he's "changed".

Narcissists don't listen.

A witness is telling him about a human tragedy, and he's just waiting for her to go away so he can get back to watching himself on Fox.

I'm not going to get into the woo-woo of over analyzing body language, but how on earth did this conversation get staged? He's pulled in tight to his desk and facing away from her as she's telling him about the death of her family. He has to crane his neck almost backwards to engage with her, and he's barely capable. He couldn't be positioned in a more disinterested way unless he was sitting in a limo with a tinted window rolled down a tiny bit.

tl/dr version: He ignores the question for a while, and then he finally calls the reporter not a professional reporter (he is) tells him to call to set up an interview (he's tried repeatedly) and to watch fox news to see his response where he clears up the "lies".

That's what deplorables seem to count on. Why should I help you? Until it's time to help me.

(And while I wasn't raised that way (the exact opposite, really, you do anything for the people you care about but you you feel a burden if you ask) I was exposed to it enough for it to have sunk in and it was something I had to learn to shed)

The more I watch this exchange, the more it a utterly infuriates me. Setting aside Trump’s embarrassing ignorance about who she is and anything about her situation, the utter lack of ANY sort of empathy is appalling. Not just from an elected official, but just as a fellow human being.

He can’t be bothered to face her while she talks, look her in the eye, or pay even the slightest bit of attention to what she’s saying. She’s describing to him a horrific human tragedy and he literally could not care less because it’s not about him.

He is truly a disgusting human being, at every conceivable level.

USA Today
Speaking on Tuesday at a student activist conference hosted by the conservative advocacy organization Turning Point USA, President Donald Trump walked onstage in front of a presidential seal that, upon closer examination, appears to have been altered to include symbols representing Russia and golf.

The Washington Post first reported on the altered seal. As Trump walked onstage to a cheering audience, two presidential seals flashed on screen. The seal directly behind Trump was the authentic presidential seal. One of the seals, however, was not like the others.

Upon closer examination, the seal on Trump's right includes a double-headed eagle, unlike the single head of the traditional presidential seal, and seems to resemble the Russian coat of arms. The seal has a complex history, notes the Victoria and Albert Museum, but one of the more common interpretations is that the two heads represent east and west, "an allegory sometimes for unity, and sometimes for absolute monarchy." It could be a reference to Trump's sometimes-controversial relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The eagle also appears to be holding several golf clubs instead of arrows in its claws, perhaps a reference to Trump's affinity for golf.

Additionally, instead of "e pluribus unum," the scroll above the eagle appears to say "45 es un titere," which appears to translate from Spanish to mean "45 is a puppet."

It is not clear where the image originated, though, or who was responsible for the mixup.

The seal parody is the work of a graphic designer by the name of Charles Leazott. It's appearance behind Trump is the work of an unnamed (as far as I know) hero who used to work for Turning Point USA.
