While I think she would have been a far better choice, I'm no hillary fan.

That said, wtf is up wit Trump claiming she lied to the FBI?

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2017/dec/05/donald-trump/donald-trump-falsely-claims-hillary-clinton-lied-f/

Has a president ever made a slanderous lie like that in public about a former opponent?


What a pompous kook

The sordid cycle of history necessitates that Trump be recognized as a recycled version of Petronius Maximus.


For starters, compare the cognomen, Petronius Maximus, with its cognate:

Trumpianus Maximus - - - which literally translates as, "Trump is the world's biggest as#@&%e"



Like Petronius, Trump came to political power through inherited wealth, deceit, skullduggery, a gullible public and old-fashioned palace intrigue. Petronius fabricated imaginary plots against the Emperor Valentinian III, and used the subsequent executions of high officials to goad their supporters into murdering the emperor himself. Trump's rise to power depended on fabricated campaign lies, imaginary plots and deceiving the public regarding his true intentions.

Both Petronius and Trump were unqualified for the highest office in their respective lands. Both committed astonishing blunders that were of the greatest detriment to the citizens they were supposed to be protecting.

In a manner surprisingly, and alarmingly, similar to Trump's foreign policy decisions, Petronius unilaterally canceled an important political treaty with a foreign leader - Vandal King Genseric - which directly led to the death of Petronius at the hands of enraged Roman citizens, and with the Vandals sacking and pillaging Rome.

Before King Genseric and his marauding troops left Rome with everything of value that could be carried off, Genseric ensured that the Petroniusly-cancelled political agreement would be fulfilled as originally agreed upon: Genseric's son was married to Valentinian's daughter.

A few weeks into the new presidential term, Stephen Colbert said in his monolog, "The news from each day makes me feel like I'm riding on a roller coaster, where every morning I wake up and I want to throw up."

That pretty much sums my last year.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Just wait.

Trump hasn't even gotten his boner on.

Next year will be more of the same, but even worse.


Unless he is stopped, Trump's hubris and sense of omnipotence will increase, and he will become more and more Caligular.


There has to be a nationwide effort for citizens to gain control of both houses of Congress, so that the options of impeachment and removal of office are available. Right now, those options are unavailable, because the GOP has no concern for the nation, outside of their own tiny group of campaign financiers.

We need to do this now, before Trump successfully achieves his demented fantasy of becoming an Armeggedon-igniting Anti-Christ character, as depicted in the New Testament.

"North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the 'Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.' Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

That tweet is actually quite funny. Out of place, but LOL!

Trumpís my-button-is-bigger brinkmanship with North Korea again shows his fixation on size

North Korean dictators have been insulting U.S. presidents for seven decades. But President Trump is the first to let their taunts get under his skin, and some foreign policy experts are pained by his naivete.

Israelis voice warnings, Palestinians talk of Ďblackmailí in wake of tweets by Trump
The Trump administrationís threat to cut aid to the Palestinians to force them into a peace deal may have dire humanitarian consequences that could backfire on Israel, Israeli security officials and analysts warned.

"Like Petronius, Trump came to political power through inherited wealth, deceit, skullduggery, a gullible public... Petronius fabricated imaginary plots... Trumpianus Maximus - - - "

Another striking similarity:
Circus Maximus becomes Circus trumpulous, a daily alt-reality show of golf, twits, leaks, firings, fakefacts, corruption, and belching.
