Trump is right, the leftist fake news media coddled Obama's balls but whines about Trump at every turn.

While his tweet, like all of them, is stupid, petty, childish and just plain fucking dumb, I wouldn't say he's "demanding a holiday". He's just once again whining like the little bitch that he is because he can't live up to, nor receive the love that Obama received.
Fuck him

It's funny to see how jealous Trump is of Obama's success. The problem for Trump is that making good deals like Obama did takes a ton of work and a ton of knowledge. Trump doesn't know what he's doing and he's too lazy to put in the work so we get 'great deals' like the one he just concluded with Mexico: we get 'concessions' of what Mexico was already planning on doing and in exchange we demolish any remaining credibility we have on trade deals. After all, what's the point in making a deal on tariffs with someone if they are just going to impose them in another way a few months later?

As I predicted a while back now, we're seeing the results of Trump's stupid approach to international relations. Other countries know he's not trustworthy so they aren't willing to make any real concessions in response to his threats. That's why he keeps failing.

You realize that 7 in 10 of us actually have functioning brain cells and memory of the Obama years to see through every projectionist hypocrisy you post? Have you not met your recruitment quota for morons yet?

Just tell him it is to celebrate his historic landslide victory and he'll fall for it.

Obama did an ok job, press loved him, he won a Nobel prize for... what again? The country does only better yet under Trump and the media hates him. Jim Accosta follows him around like a little lost spoiled dog.

The Nobel prize was an embarrassment, but not Obama's doing. You can't rightly hold that one against him.

Yes, how dare the chief White House correspondent follow the president around. What exactly do you think White House correspondents do for a living?

It Trump wants more positive press then he needs to start doing more positive things. Instead of picking fights with people and childishly ranting on Twitter he should try to enact legislation that will improve the country. All he has to show for two and a half years is a tax cut that the CRS has already determined is failing.

Name one thing that got better under Trump where Trump changed the trajectory.

Also it's unclear why anyone would attribute the state of the economy to Trump. The trajectory under him is functionally identical to how it was under Obama before him.

BWAHAHAHAHA! No one suggested even the "leftist fake news" demanded an immediate national holiday to honor Obama nor anyone else.


Sorry, your would be king isn't getting what you think he deserves.

I don't "blame" Obama, but the point is that the outsiders, the powers that be, they coddled Obama while they attack Trump. Not for those presidents' accomplishments, but for the sake of their own narrative.

I like how Obama showed up in public the other day, and the crowds started chanting "MVP!"

But while either creating or decrying fake news, the orange colostomy bag throws a perpetual fit about not being praised enough.

It's maddening to him, that Obama is more popular and respected than he is. I love it.

It is a lot easier to lift it up when there is no where to go but up. It is another thing to keep it going after they kept saying we're headed for recession, once the economy is already doing well, to lift it to even greater heights. The Trump tax breaks and his cutting of overly burdernsome regulations has spurred business activity and kept the bull market going strong.

That's perfectly normal spin. Almost everyone does it as there is absolutely no honesty in politics.

We have no more room on Mt Rushmore for another face.
But Donald can just declare another of his infamous executive orders to have his face chiseled over Washington's face.
You know Trump wants to.
After all, trump can claim George had his turn, now its my turn.
Does anyone know where we can get some orange granite?

The Congressional Research Service disagrees with you.

https://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-tax-cut-effects-20190529-story.html

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service has just published a deep dive into the economic impact of the cuts in their first year, and emerges from the water with a different picture. The CRS finds that the cuts have had virtually no effect on wages, haven’t contributed to a surge in investment, and haven’t come close to paying for themselves. Nor have they delivered a cut to the average taxpayer.
So no, his tax cuts are just yet another in a seemingly endless series of failures. Let me guess though, the CRS doesn’t count because of your feelings.

(Hypothetical) - If any employees of mine behaved anything near like Trump does I'd fire them on day one for making false claims on their resume, their incompetence (as considered against their stated qualifications on their resume), taking credit for work being done by others, their lack of productivity, their inability to work well with others, their racism, making false claims against fellow employees to get them fired, violating NDA's, consorting with the competition in order to sabotage their employer for self-profit, not being a team player, incessantly lying about everything they can't do but wish they could, taking advanced payment on their wages and not paying any of it back, tax evasion, falsely claiming injuries to avoid work that many other employees considered an honor to do, etc. etc. etc.

See, these are all things that Trump has done that we've all been witness to. Why there is any argument as to whether or not his ass should be swift kicked out of office isn't based on the volumes of documented proof of his inabilities, personality disorders and other well known shortcomings.

Rather, the argument has come down to whether or not he can somehow escape from being convicted of his crimes by outlasting the statutes of limitations, by relying on the culpability of his associates in and out of gov't service and exploiting the ignorance and gullibility of those that have cast in with him 'til the last.

That's who we are actually considering to be reelected?

Really?

However, Trump did get more tax revenue while also reducing taxes. https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/trump-tax-cuts-federal-revenues-deficits/

That is a significant feat.
