    Yeah Seth Payne! Just stand there, be the better man, and let Josh Innes walk all over you the way a proper southerner would do it. By all means don’t get him fired like those nasty northerners did.

    You are right, there have probably been almost 5 times where he's acted presidential. But he doesn't understand how our government works, the roles of cabinet secretaries, departments of our government, the different branches of government, won't read briefings, and regularly abuses his power.

    If he truly respected the office, he would be willing to read briefings more than a page even without pictures on them. He would bother to learn the role of the AG in governing. He would learn about the separation of powers between the branches of government. He would appoint qualified people to the job (I realize that people can be qualified for their government jobs even when I disagree with them.).

    He hasn't shown enough respect for the office for any of that. He has repeatedly embarrassed our nation, and since he is the leader, he sets the tone.

    But like I've pointed out, that's what his supporters have been calling for since before the election. That kind of crap was what they said they liked about the Donald. So it is misguided to now expect everyone else to respect the office when the person who holds the office doesn't respect it.

    Well congrats to Trump on occasionally acting presidential, maybe we should give him a lollipop every time he acts like an adult?! JFC this is a great example of how far the bar has been lowered for this clown show.

    So the bar for being 'Presidential' is being able to read a teleprompter. That is literally all he did. In fact compared to previous presidents I have no reason to believe any of those sentences constructed were of his own writing.

    Outside of being able to read sentences displayed on a transparent screen, what actions and words of wisdom has come out of his mouth that makes you think "hmm... This guy has the competence to manage the world's largest bureaucracy and command the world's largest military?".

    Well congrats to liberals for occasionally acting like Trump.

    The hypocrisy is outstanding, I'm truly in awe at it's power. Both sides really, are completely entranced or a better word maybe, bewitched.

    No. If you think the problem Trump presents is the equivalent of not standing or clapping at appropriate moments, you really have not understood the argument.

    Can you elaborate on "acting like Trump"? What does that entail and post examples of 'us'(whoever 'us' means) doing this?

    Also, there are millions upon millions of 'liberals' all of all walks of life and most with very little clout. There will always be stupid ones.

    There is one President and he has immense clout over the entire nation.

    You b****ing about randos on the internet while being protective of the President is pretty pathetic and irrational.

    If anyone here acts like Trump, it's you with your meltdowns and screaming "fack fack fack" constantly while somehow thinking you're the smartest person in the room when pretty much everyone else knows better. There's no hypocrisy, the majority of the people here (not you) carry themselves like adults, you're probably the most Trumpian person in the D&D.

    did you read the articles? bunch of stupid things the liberals did in "protest" of trump and his sotu. regarding acting like trump, all the liberals here excusing the disrespecting behavior as doing so because the trump office is disrespectful. like a firefighter fighting fire with fire, meanwhile his job is to stop fire. i mean it's pretty easy to follow.

    well now you're just a liar like trump. the TRUTH is, the constant meltdowns have been and are from liberals ever since hilarily lost the election. take a look at d&d threads and witness the meltdown yourself or go online and see the thousands upon thousands of videos of said meltdowns.

    Why are we even discussing what is appropriate with Trump supporters? There's absolutely nothing that they and their abomination of a president have done to warrant such a discussion. You really can't have intelligent discussions with people who lost their damn minds because a black man became president. It's pretty pathetic they're hiding under the guise of the idea of "disrespect" when they don't respect any other people of color.

    Which belies that the problem is a bunch of xenophobic, vindictive, fiscally innumerate assholes electing a reality TV brand to get the taste of educated black guy out of their mouth, mind you.
