    LOL, the putz ran his PR guy out this afternoon, just to complain about the press misreporting how much fewer people attended his inauguration that Obama's. Laughable that mattered so much to him. Further laughable were thoughts of releasing his own from the lectern estimate of "million to a million and a half". And blaming the white background. And then lying about how the NY Times, of all pubs, showed an accurate set of pictures that showed there wasn't much difference in the two crowds.

    His first press conference... on this?

    Here's those pictures: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/01/20/us/politics/trump-inauguration-crowd.html

    This guy is so thin-skinned.

    He can't take a quarter of the criticism that Obama or Bush took, that much is clear.

    You're not even from the U.S. He's not going to get impeached unless he has a major **** up but that's going to be based on his actions as President. If he did it would be from a GOP majority Congress. Not protesters. Your little tirade is based on nothing like your knowledge of U.S. politics.

    My point is basically to be forward looking. Hold the president accountable for what he does now, instead of looking all the way back.

    Rosie O'Donnell, Hollywood, some members of this forum...Suck it up and goto work tomorrow.. No more of this impeachment BS (like you said, not likely to happen in the next little while).

    Work hard, because America need hard workers, not millennial snow flakes, to become great again. Not saying anyone is in particular, just hoping someone shares my disdain for "Social Justice Warriors" and liberal arts self righteous internet warriors.

    Don't worry about me throwing a tirade. I'm Canadian.

    Never heard anyone on this forum or cared to look enough online for people that said they weren't going to work Monday morning because Donald Trump is president. Seems like you're making up stuff to get angry about. I don't keep up with Twitter so maybe you can find someone out there to fit your narrative.

    America does work hard. We have the least amount of vacation days in developed nations and work the most hours on average while retiring later than other developed nations. So again you're making **** up.

    Go search up some Ben Shapiro videos on Youtube and read their comments sections there. You'll find more people there that are angry over SJWs that can share you disdain although you might just be better of PMing Mojoman and RocketsLegend if you want a quick agreement with your opinion.

    That's awesome.

    Ben Shapiro is hilarious, and so is Crowder, Milo Y, Black Pigeon, Easy, Undoomed, Stephan Molyeux, Rebel Media, etc etc. I find them thought provoking and interesting. The comments section is hilarious too.

    I don't think Americans don't work hard. But I do not see why people need to march on Washington, cause riots, and post threads titled "
    ALL HAIL OUR DESPOT-IN-CHIEF!!"

    I don't know why you think I am angry. I am not. The whole point of a discussion is to learn. The stat you posted is interesting, and I hope that the new generation youth of America will sustain this kind of work ethic.

    RocketLegend may be many things you don't like, but the dude is ballsy. Just like when Ann Coulter predicted Trump to win, everyone laughed at her. RL defended his position, and the result was in his favor. Until RL posts a thread saying "deport all Asians because something silly" I don't really have much to critique him about.

    Many millennials do work harder.

    I typically hate the McHale school of management because it's entirely possible to work smart and hard in a way that doesn't force people to sleep 5 hrs a day while showing up like a zombie and proceed to waste 3 hours of productivity.

    Right. I've seen it, witness it. Some are so competitive, taking vacation is a negative.

    Agreed however he is still more decent and thoughtful than Hillary is or would have been had she won. I don't think we have ever had two worse candidates to chose from.

    Doubt that. Clinton would not have appeared in front of the CIA to brag about how many attended her inauguration (and in the process, lie about how many attended) and lie about how she supported the CIA, despite comparing them to Nazi Germany. And that on day 1.

    I blame not having tanks and rockets at the parade for the crowd not being more tremendously bigly. But just to be clear, the photos are photo-shopped, and in real life the crowd was tremendously bigly.

    This has been another episode of Deep Thoughts, by Donnie Drumpf.

    If you're into hard work why is this post so obviously lazy?

    It's not. Comparing Trump to Bane is.

    Btw you lost all my respect when you assumed I was a non college white male.

    Everyone is entitled to your opinion. I'm curious what did Hillary do that was less decent than advocating the United States military targeting and killing women and children civilians and committing war crimes as part of her foreign policy?

    No, there's an Asian dude standing in a field whose respect I lost.

    Not sure how I will get it back. :(

    Ignore them. They're seriously deluded when it comes to talking about Clinton. The more Trump talks and acts, the more I see that Clinton was WAY better and that a lot of talk about them being two of the worst candidates is bullshit. Just wait- you're going to get 4 years of the worst presidency this country has ever seen. And by far the least transparent:

    “Trump's breach of promise over the release of his tax returns is even more gratuitous than Clinton concealing her Goldman Sachs transcripts,” WikiLeaks wrote on Twitter.

    This was a "special" post .

    I don't think you have a good grasp...on pretty much anything honestly. That's how we got here though.

    Maybe you can educate me then.

    Honestly I was curious, and abit frustrated at all the outrageous behavior surrounding the inaugural process.

    Would you agree with the behavior of the rioters, Madonna saying she'll blow up the whitehouse, Rosie O'Donnell saying that the US should have martial law to impeach Trump? Would you condemn the people, even of this forum, that support these views?

    If we can agree on that, that is my goal.


    Okay.

    First of all some of your post isn't accurate. Madonna didn't say that she'll blow up the white house. She said she thought about it. That isn't a good thing to say, but let's at least be honest about what was said. Nobody is supporting the people who committed vandalism.

    Agreed. That's my point.

    Also the "Nasty Woman" thing is frankly disturbing.
