I said it a couple weeks ago: Donald is obsessed with what kind of coverage he gets. He is going to have a meltdown when he gets destroyed by the talking heads for his lack of accomplishments in first 100 days.


What he's accomplished is certainly not impressive: proof that water is wet, fire is hot, and a vacuous celebrity with nothing but his image to his credit is not capable of accomplishing anything significant in the Oval Office.

Maybe he should order a golf course built under Mount Weather, to insure in the event of a nuclear strike he can still golf on weekends.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

No matter how much I accomplish during the ridiculous standard of the first 100 days, & it has been a lot (including S.C.), media will kill!


Donald is even failing to meet "ridiculous standard" HE SET FOR HIMSELF.

Is there any better illustration as to why the hardcore Trumpster righties have stopped posting in these threads?

Yeah, I was trying to figure out how to say that this 100 day thing is a benchmark of his own creation.

Quote: Trump
"On Nov. 8th, Americans will be voting for this 100-day plan to restore prosperity to our country, secure our communities and honesty to our government. This is my pledge to you. And if we follow these steps, we will once more have a government of, by and for the people. And importantly, we will make America great again. Believe me."


Now, that isn't to say that the 100 days thing hasn't been looked at for a long time, over 70 years, but just that Trump set a bar for what he wanted to accomplish in 100 days and isn't going to meet it.

So yeah, he's now tweeting that 100 days is a "ridiculous standard"

Related: an article on politico opines that 1 year is a more reasonable standard.

Doubleplusungood. It's not that the orange man said then, it's what he's saying now. Fake news!

What's buyer's remorse for voters?

Seriously, there has never been more unqualified person ever elected to any office of any actual importance. What else did they expect? A miracle?

This is what you and the other lefties on the board have failed to realize yet Nareed. Look into the polls deeper from what ever side you want. Trump has lost little if any support from the people that voted for him, there is no 'buyers remorse'. The people that didn't vote for him haven't switched sides. Nothing has changed since the election and the pollsters are still adding their "fudge" factors to the raw data just as they did pre-election. We all know how they increased their accuracy by this method.

You know, people who don't like your Golden Boy aren't necessarily leftists.

You mean the minority who voted for him.

Not the same thing.

Not sure about you last comment Nareed. Only people that have bought something can have 'buyers remorse'. In this case it is the people who voted for Trump. Those who didn't vote for him can have various other kinds of remorse about Trump but not 'buyers remorse'. Those who voted for him as of yet do not have remorse. This could change, time will tell.

You are speaking for yourself. There are PLENTY of Trump voters who already have buyers remorse.

Go back and read my original post to Nareed. Trump has lost little if any support from those who voted for him.

That's ok. I'm sure.

So you don't think people can support the Golden Boy and yet wish they'd voted for, say, Rubio or Kasich in the primaries, so that perhaps they'd have a real adult in the White House?
