He's in a no win situation.
He's trying to take on a ton of big problems that are more serious. Do you actually think N. Korea is going to do anything? If they do how long would they actually last? It's nice in my opinion to see a president putting America first.

He's Mr. anti-politically correct

Since when do Trump supporters care what anyone else thinks?


Where's the wall? What are we waiting on?

Your right, no way on earth to satisfy a liberal.
When the next terrorist attack happens on American soil they will say he did not do enough to prevent a terrorist from getting in the country even though they gripe and complain about the so called muslim ban.

I say, the president needs to put all liberals on the ignore list..and pay no attention to them.

Hence me asking xbowhunter to tell TBH exactly what he wants Trump to do. But he won't say what he wants Trump to do so he can bash either way.

First thing he needs to do is smash his phone with a sledgehammer and never grace the pages of Twitter again

I agree with most of this.
But Twitter did help him get elected and it is a way to fight media. But he is president now and I wish he'd hold more of his cards. He said he didn't like telling people before he went to war, so hold your hand and then throw it all out when you can win. I kind of think he pulls the media in, with his tweets, to focus on one thing when he's trying to accomplish something else.

In my opinion if you didn't vote you gave up your rights to complain for 4yrs.

he's not going to get off Twitter ... WHY ? he gets his message across, and sticks it to the media in the process, because they try to screw him over time and time again ... you can edit someone's conversation , move it all around and make some one look like an idiot ... or only show the public the pieces you want ... with twitter , it's him saying what he wants .... unaltered ... so keep on tweeting ... i really don't care .... the media is full of crap and have their own agenda....

and as far as North Korea , Trump is doing the right thing ... quit putting America in the middle of someone else's fight they don't want to fight themselves ... he is putting America first in his decisions ... more people hate us for sticking our nose in everyone else's business than not ...

look at Europe and the UK ... all the crime , the undocumented refugees killing the economy and the countries they invade ... Nice to see he is trying to stop it here....

and i'm so sick of hearing Trump is a hater and he hates immigrants ... f-ing media !!! All he said was "illegal immigrants " but all they publish is the half they want to hear to put america in chaos ... keep on Tweeting mr Trump !!!!!

I haven't quoted him

When discussions devolve from rational fact or perception based arguments to name calling and personal attacks is what gets this forum locked up. For all of xbowhunters pot stirring, I don't see him doing any name calling.

And I never mentioned his name...but you knew exactly who I was referring to...so the "name calling" must've been an accurate "perception based" opinion.

You absorb innumerable insults, to include name-calling, practically every time you have something to say.

But yet, you remain to be a cool and reasonable man.

In a perfect world, we all could differ with our beliefs and personal convictions, no matter what the subject might be. And still be able to exchange conversation regarding said beliefs and convictions and nobody would get ****** off. We'd share another drink or another toke and talk some more.

But it ain't a perfect world and it never will be.

I appreciate you too Bob Lee

I am far from perfect, and sometimes I get upset also.

But I too wish we could all have a civil conversation and a drink/toke.

After all, we share the love of bow hunting.

And...
He hasn't really gotten anything done. The healthcare thing is still ping-ponging because nobody has yet to come up with a better idea as I type this little reply. Though they have hit the little ball back to the hit-it-back side with lots of unanswered considerations.

His immigration policy "executive order", after all sorts of (adjectives elude me) things... The District Courts and the Appeals Court promptly said 3 and 0, Donald J., try again.

There's so many empty offices in DC (and I'm talking about folks we need in all areas), we don't have fingers and toes enough in THB to count 'em.
Oh yeah, the Wall... Where are we on that?. For the record, I'm opposed for the simple reason that it will cost too much money and it won't work anyway.

He has managed to alienate some of our best friends. Namely, Australia, Mexico and The United Kingdom. Oh hell, why stop there? France, Germany, Sweden. In summation, about everybody.
No, wait. There's Russia. Although I have read recently that they ain't quite so enamored with him either lately.

Flynn fired, Sessions on Front Street, to the point that he said I gotta recuse myself and I hope y'all let me be and I don't have to answer any questions, 'cause I'm a ****-poor liar.

Dang, I just thought of the North Korea thing, which he has managed to side-step.

Because:

He don't know what to do. To say he is in over his head is an enormous (bigly, yuge) understatement.

So, he just flies off on Air Force One to Mira Whatever for the fourth weekend in a row and plays golf and tweets stupid ****. At about a million dollars per trip.

Those are my thought on the matter. I refuse to argue or answer insults or tacky replies. I stopped doing that with my last marriage... Which was a long time ago. Besides, I'm hungry - it's suppertime and my newest favorite TV show, "The Imposter" come on tonight. If y'all haven't watched it, it's about this incredibly foxy woman that marries people and takes them for all they got, then leaves. She's just the ***** that can capture my heart, I'm in love with her. Take all my stuff Honey, life is fulla little trade-offs.

Trump twittered about the phone tapping because he knew that it would put it there so blatantly that some thing would have to get done. If he kept it in house then the moles would have morphed it into some thing else.I think it was very smart of him.
