Although still in his first term in office, Donald Trump's presidency has been so tumultuous and unorthodox that people forget - or simply cannot keep track of what has occurred in the past two years.

1. Trump’s peculiar obsession with the size of the crowd at his inauguration.

Source

Trump incessantly bragged that he had the largest inaugural crowd in history despite photographic evidence proving it was untrue. He was so unhinged over this that on his first full day in office he made his press secretary, Sean Spicer, call a special press conference just to berate the news media for showing pictures that proved his inaugural crowd was much smaller than Obama’s.

2. Trump is the only US President to routinely hurl petty, childish insults at people

Most US presidents learn to grow a thick skin and ignore much of the criticism aimed at them, but Donald Trump is so incredibly thin skinned that he has to attack anyone who even mildly criticizes him, whether it’s the parents of a soldier who died in service to his country, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico discussing the speed of the relief efforts, or a celebrity who makes a joke about him on TV. Trump's petty childishness seems to have no end. He frequently pounds out angry Tweets in the middle of the night over minor comments by celebrities.

3. He engages in constant self-congratulations indicating narcissistic personality disorder.

Trump is obsessed with always being the best, the most, the tallest, the smartest. He said he had the biggest election victory since Reagan (it wasn’t). When he addressed the Boy Scout Jamboree he said it had to be the biggest crowd they ever had bragged repeatedly about his election victory.

Trump frequently brags about how smart he is. “I know more about ISIS than the Generals, believe me.” He knows how to defeat ISIS “very quickly”. He had the “largest crowd in inaugural history”. His golf course is “the best resort in the country”, “I would build a great wall – and nobody builds better walls than me, believe me”, “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created, believe me.” After the World Trade Center fell in 2001, Trump frequently bragged that Trump Tower was now the tallest building in New York. He often claims his book was the biggest selling book of all time.

4. He’s abnormally sensitive about the size of his hands.

Years ago a magazine editor referred to Donald Trump as a “Short fingered vulgarian”. Since then Trump has often sent the editor pictures of himself torn from magazines with circles drawn around his hands and the words “see, not so short” written next to them.

After hearing about this, Senator Marco Rubio joked about how small Trump’s hands were. Trump couldn’t let it go. “Look at those hands. Are they small hands? And he referred to my hands – if they’re small something else must be small. I guarantee there’s no problem. I guarantee it.”

Most politicians are accused of lying at times, but they really just exaggerate, distort, or mislead. They make sure there is some kernel of truth in what they’re saying. Donald Trump, does not just exaggerate, distort or mislead. He tells outright lies that are easily disproved.

For example, Trump said that the US immigration policy made it easy for Muslims to enter the country and nearly impossible for Christians to get into the United States. Based on the known numbers of people entering the country, this statement was easily proved to be false.

During a speech in 2015, Trump said, “I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering” as the World Trade Center collapsed. Trump insisted that this cheering was reported extensively on TV at the time. Yet there is no record of any news reports at that time saying this happened. The police have no records of this happening. Trump literally made the whole thing up.

Trump falsely claimed that the Obama administration released 122 “vicious prisoners” from Guantanamo Bay who returned to the battlefield. Further investigation revealed that almost all of those prisoners were released by the Bush administration, not Obama.

8. Trump lied about having Mexico pay for the border wall.

Despite the fact that the Mexican government said they would never pay for any wall, Trump constantly insisted before, during and after the election that Mexico would pay for the border wall. Shortly after becoming president, he asked Congress to appropriate taxpayer’s money for the wall and made no mention of Mexico paying for it.

And he greatly underestimated the cost of the border wall too. Trump estimated it would cost $4 to $7 billion when it would actually cost $15 to $25 Billion.

Trump went to Twitter several times accusing former president Obama of wiretapping his campaign and Trump Tower. He offered no evidence to support the claim yet he continued to repeat this lie even after his own administration admitted there was no evidence to support it. Lengthy investigations proved that, although Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was under surveillance for his many ties to Russia, neither the Trump campaign nor Trump Tower were ever spied on by the Obama Administration.

10. Trump lied for years about releasing his taxes.

Source

Every presidential candidate since the 1960s has voluntarily released several years of tax returns to be viewed by the public and the media. This is a good faith gesture to prove they have nothing to hide. After promising for years to release his income taxes – even saying that he would be “happy” to do so – Trump announced after the election that he would not release any of his tax returns. He clearly never intended to do so and lied about it throughout the campaign.

11. He repeatedly lied about winning the presidency by the largest margin since Reagan.

In reality, all four presidents since Reagan won by larger margins than Trump. Yet he continued to repeat this lie long after he was told it wasn’t true.

Mr. Trump claims he had opposed the war in Iraq but in 2002 he told Howard Stern that he supported an Iraq invasion. In an interview on Sept. 11, 2002, Stern asked Trump directly if he was for invading Iraq. "Yeah I guess so," Trump responded. "I wish the first time it was done correctly." There is no record of Trump ever opposing the invasion of Iraq before the war started. Ironically, he now says we never should have left Iraq. We should have, according to Trump, stayed in Iraq so we could take all their oil.

“And I said, take the oil when we leave. But we shouldn’t have really left.”

A few years before Russia interfered in the US presidential election, Paul Manafort worked for Russian president Vladimir Putin, helping him install his handpicked politicians in Ukraine.

Years later, Manafort became Donald Trump’s campaign manager while Russia was actively interfering in the US election. When this was made public, the bad publicity caused Manafort to resign as Trump’s campaign manager.

But it begs the question, was Manafort still working for Vladimir Putin when he was helping Trump get elected?

14. Donald Trump Jr. sought Russia’s help in getting dirt on Hillary Clinton.

In June of 2016, Donald Trump Jr. responded to an email from a Russian lawyer who said the Russian government wanted to give him dirt on Hillary Clinton, by saying “I love it”. Soon afterward, Trump Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner all met with the Russian lawyer who said that Russia wanted to help Trump win.

When asked about this later, Trump Jr. lied and said the meeting had nothing to do with the campaign.

15. Donald Trump publicly asked Russia to help in winning the election.

Just weeks after receiving the offer of help from the Russian lawyer, Donald Trump publicly asked Russia to release dirt on Hillary Clinton in order to help him win the election. Trump promised that Russia would be "richly rewarded" for this. In the same speech he mentioned lifting sanctions against Russia. Investigations later revealed that Russia did, in fact, obtain information about Hillary Clinton and leak it to help Trump get elected. It was also revealed that Trump adviser Michael Flynn discussed lifting sanctions with the Russian ambassador.

In 2016, the Republican Party had a plank in their party platform that was highly critical of Russia’s involvement in Ukraine. After Trump secured the needed delegates to win the Republican nomination, the Trump campaign quietly changed the Republican Party platform to remove a section that supports Ukraine against Russia.

Trump appointed as National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, who was a registered agent for a foreign country and had many undisclosed contacts with Russia. Flynn lied about speaking to the Russian ambassador about lifting sanctions against Russia. Flynn even lied to the Pentagon about his ties to Russia on his application for top security clearance. Only after all of this was leaked publicly did Trump have Flynn resign. Flynn later invoked the 5th Amendment and refused to answer questions about his ties to Russia unless he received immunity from prosecution.

Former Trump Adviser Carter Page
Former Trump Adviser Carter Page

Trump’s foreign policy campaign adviser, Carter Page, who had many business dealings in Russia and traveled to Moscow on behalf of the Trump campaign, was investigated by the FBI because he had so many contacts with Russian intelligence that they tried to recruit him.

Sessions lied about his contacts with Russian intelligence when he claimed he had not met with any Russian. In fact he met with the Russian ambassador. While it was not illegal for Sessions to meet with the ambassador, it was illegal to lie to Congress about it. This forced Sessions to recuse himself for any involvement with the investigations into the Trump Russia probe.

Trump jeopardized some of our intelligence sources when he revealed too much information to the Russian Foreign Minister and the Russian Ambassador. Whether this was done out of ignorance or some other reason is not known.

In an interview with NBC News, Trump admitted that he fired the FBI director because of the investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. That alone is obstruction of justice, an impeachable offense.

After Trump fired Comey, he bragged to Russian officials visiting the White House that firing Comey took “great pressure” off of him over the Russia investigation.

22. Trump’s Secretary of State has major business interests in Russia which represent a huge conflict of interest.

Source

Donald Trump appointed Rex Tillerson, the head of ExxonMobil, as secretary of State. Tillerson’s company had billions of dollars of business dealings that were halted by President Obama's sanctions on Russia. Those business dealings could proceed if the US sanctions on Russia were lifted and Tillerson stands to make a fortune. Such a huge conflict of interest would never have been acceptable in any other administration.

Trump’s campaign is under investigation for the multitude of contacts they had with the Russian government while Russia was illegally interfering with our presidential election. On the campaign trail, Trump often repeated what turned out to be false talking points about Hillary Clinton that originated in the Russian news media.

After Congress passed sanctions against Russia, Vladimir Putin expelled over 700 US diplomats and staff from Russia. Trump, who is quick to insult our allies if they so much as blink wrong, didn’t criticize Putin’s decision. In fact, the thanked Putin for expelling those diplomats.

When applying for his top-secret security clearance, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and top advisor, Jared Kushner, failed to disclose dozens of contacts he’d had with foreign governments including Russia. This type of omission is usually more than enough to get someone’s security clearance revoked. However, Kushner continues to have top level security clearance.

After a terrorist attack in Manchester England on May 25, 2017, the Trump Administration had leaked so much classified information to the media that the United Kingdom said they would stop sharing information about the terrorist attack with the United States.

27. For no apparent reason, Trump reduced automobile fuel efficiency standards

Although auto makers had already agreed to higher fuel efficiency standards, Trump reduced those standards for no apparent reason. Thanks to this decision, our fossil fuel consumption is increasing as is our dependence on foreign oil and the amount of toxins in our air. There was no positive economic benefit to roll back these standards.

28. He’s making climate change worse.

Despite the objections of the overwhelming majority of scientists, Trump is rolling back all the climate change initiatives from the past few years. There is virtually no benefit to this country by easing these standards, but Trump is rejecting the entire scientific community just so he can help a few corporate CEOs make a few more dollars at the expense of everyone else.

29. Trump is destroying the best things about America.

He eliminated federal funding to a program to feed the elderly.

He cut funding for mammograms and other women’s health screenings.

He reduced environmental standards to allow more toxins in our drinking water.

He's made it easier for the mentally ill to get a gun.

And his tax proposals redistribute more wealth from the poor and middle class to the very wealthy.

Every one of the proposed replacements for Obamacare would take health insurance away from tens of millions of Americans and give huge tax breaks to the very rich.

Dodd-Frank was the law enacted to prevent another financial collapse like the one in 2008. Although many people said it didn’t go far enough in regulating the financial institutions, Donald Trump wants to repeal it altogether and take us back to the same conditions that gave us the financial collapse that cost taxpayers a trillion dollars to bail out big corporations. Once again this will benefit a few of his wealthy friends but it will hurt the rest of us.

Trump does not hide his contempt for diplomacy and civility, which he decries as “political correctness”. He uses belligerent rhetoric toward Kim Jong Un, the mentally unstable leader of North Korea, and threatens to destroy that country. Even with friendly countries he uses threats, insults and intimidation. Trump’s Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson has been unsuccessful at getting him to tone down his violent rhetoric.

33. Trump has lowered the bar for future presidencies.

Prior to Donald Trump, we have never before had someone become president with such a complete and total lack of experience in governing and the military. No candidate has ever demonstrated the ignorance of political issues that he did in the debates. No presidential nominee has had such a well-documented history of sexist behavior toward women as Trump. No candidate has ever had Trump’s tendency toward obnoxious, childish and crude behavior. If Trump is the new normal, then this does not bode well for the future of our country.

Donald Trump repeatedly said we should keep US troops in Middle Eastern countries like Iraq indefinitely for the purpose of seizing their oilfields and taking their oil.

He told the Wall Street Journal “I always heard that when we went into Iraq we went in for the oil. I said, ‘oh, that sounds smart.’ But, we never did. I would take the oil.

“So you would keep troops in Iraq after this year?” asked Wall Street Journal reporter Kelly Evans. “I would take the oil,” Trump responded. Confused, Evans responded, “Does that mean keeping troops there, or staying involved in Iraq?” “You heard me, I would take the oil,” Trump insisted. “I would not leave Iraq and let Iran take the oil.”

Steve Bannon is known for racially divisive, sexist, anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim rhetoric on the Breitbart website. It is the height of irony that Donald Trump, the president who decries “fake news” hired one of the worst purveyors of fake news in the country as his chief strategist.

In December, 2015, Trump issued this statement. "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.”
It is the first time any president ever proposed banning entry to the country based on religion.

37. He told is supporters to assault non-violent protesters at his rallies.

More than once during the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump encouraged his supporters to physically assault non-violent protesters at his rallies. Here are a few Trump quotes from his rallies.

  • “You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher folks.”
  • “I’d like to punch him in the face, I tell ya.”
  • "Get him out of here. Knock the crap out of him would you? Seriously. I'll pay the legal fees."

Trump also suggested that "the 2nd Amendment people" might be able to stop Hillary Clinton if she wins the election.

After a group of neo-Nazis, KKK members, and Confederate flag supporters violently clashed with counter protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, President Trump refused to condemn the white supremacists. He actually defended them and said there were violent people on both sides and that there were many good people among the right wing protesters. After a few days he read a statement saying he opposed the KKK. Then the next day, he again defended the extremists.

Trump’s Justice Department intervened in a private civil rights lawsuit arguing that gay people are not protected by the ban on sex discrimination in the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Without consulting with the Defense Department or Congressional leaders, Trump announced a ban on transgender people serving in the military.

40. Trump routinely makes sexist remarks about women and insults their appearance.

About Carly Fiorina: “Look at that face... Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?

When a New York Times columnist wrote about Trump’s bankruptcies, he sent her a copy of her article with her picture circled and the words “the face of a dog” written across it.

In a Tweet he called Bette Midler: “an extremely unattractive woman”. About Rosie O’Donnell, “If I were running The View, I’d fire Rosie. I’d look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers and say, ‘Rosie, you’re fired’ ”.

After Megyn Kelly asked him in a debate about his history of making sexist remarks about women, Trump proceeded to make sexist insults about her for months afterward, often calling her a "bimbo".

Trump has bragged about walking into beauty pageant dressing rooms unannounced as women were dressing. When some women confirmed that he did this, he then denied it.

During the Republican primaries, Trump posted an unflattering picture of Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, next to a glamour shot of his wife Melania saying “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

41. Trump insisted that a Federal judge should be removed from a case simply because of the Judge’s Mexican heritage.

When federal judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is of Mexican heritage, ruled against Donald Trump in a lawsuit regarding Trump University, Mr. Trump said Judge Curiel should be removed from the case because he was Mexican (although he was born in Indiana). Trump repeatedly cited Judge Curiel’s Mexican heritage as the reason why he should be removed from the case. When asked to explain how his remarks about Judge Curiel were not racist, Trump dodged the question over 20 times.

42. Trump has taken political debate to a new low with his petty insults and snide remarks.

We usually want the US president to be a statesman - someone who treats people with civility and respect. More than any other president in history, Trump engages in personal attacks, insulting people's appearance, ethnic background or physical handicap. He mocked a handicapped reporter, claimed Ted Cruz’ father was linked to the Kennedy assassination, insulted the parents of a dead US soldier, and ridiculed John McCain’s military service saying “I like people who don’t get captured”. He uses nicknames like “lying Ted”, “little Marco”, “low energy Jeb” and “crooked Hillary”.

Trump uses these endless insults as a substitute for real debate because he's not capable of engaging in a meaningful discussion of the issues.

43. Trump’s complete lack of useful experience is hurting the country

Every president before Trump either had military experience like Washington, Grant or Eisenhower or they had experience in state or federal government. Donald Trump has no history of military service and no experience in governing or legislating. He claimed that his background as a successful businessman qualified him to be president but he refused to release the most useful information to evaluate his success as a businessman – his tax returns.

During the campaign, Trump demonstrated an appalling lack of knowledge about the topics being discussed and often didn’t understand the question.

He didn’t know the names of foreign leaders or the names of many Islamic militant groups, didn’t know that Russia had invaded Ukraine. He complained that any questions asking for specific information are “gotcha questions”.

When asked a question about our nuclear triad, Trump didn’t know what that meant and still couldn’t answer after the questioner explained it to him.

Trump said that he would learn about all of that after he became president. Sadly, his ignorance continued into his presidency. After the election, he even refused to attend most of his daily national security briefings.

In the summer of 2017, his own Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, frustrated with Trump’s lack of knowledge about urgent matters, called Trump a “moron” in front of other cabinet members. When asked about this, Tillerson has not denied it.

At the very least, we expect our president to be tactful, civil and diplomatic, to be gracious, even when dealing with political opponents. We expect him to fully understand the issues and the way government works; to show humility and accept criticism gracefully so he can learn from his mistakes. We expect him to conduct himself like a gentleman.

Donald Trump constantly fails on every one of these levels.

Thousands of people were scammed out of their money by the phony Trump University. Although Trump repeatedly said he would never pay a dime to the people suing him, he agreed to pay $25 million to settle the lawsuit and keep it from going to trial.

47. He made a fortune by bankrupting his casinos and walking away with his investor’s money.

The Trump Foundation illegally made a $25,000 contribution to the Florida Attorney General who was investigating Trump’s fake University.

To cover up the illegal payment, the Trump Foundation falsely reported the $25,000 contribution on their taxes, claiming that it went to a charity in Kansas which, in fact, never received any money from them.

The Federal Trade Commission said Trump violated the law by using illegal methods to try to take over a competitor’s casino business. Ultimately, Trump had to pay a $750,000 penalty for violating anti-trust laws

Before taking office, most new presidents put their investments into a blind trust to avoid any conflict of interest. Walter Shaub Jr., the director of the US Office of Government Ethics could not get President Trump to divest his business interests to avoid such conflicts. Shaub ultimately resigned over Trump's ethics violations and conflicts of interest.

Trump has, in fact, profited greatly from his presidency. He doubled the dues for his Mar-a-Lago resort and doubled his profits at Trump International Hotel in downtown Washington, DC. During his presidential campaign, he charged the campaign for using his airplane and Trump Tower, making huge profits on each.

Summary

Don't take my word for any of this. Every fact above can be independently verified and I encourage you to do so.

You may have noticed that many of these facts have little to do with Trump’s policies or political views. Trump’s unfitness for the presidency transcends political ideology.

His tenuous mental state, divisiveness, total lack of qualifications for the job, his personal corruption, his constant and obvious lies, and his vulgar, obnoxious personality make him the most horribly unqualified person for the presidency in history.

      Precisely. I felt that Manafort was the one guy they absolutely had to go after and they did so. Justice will be served. He won't escape now especially with all the evidence coming out. This man didn't even disclose that he had a foreign bank account and he should have done so. The problem is that Paul Manafort is such a shady, crooked con-man that telling the truth didn't appeal to him.

      Of course Manifort & Gates "CONSPIRED Against The United States", I've expressed this opinion for months and anyone with even a Rudimentary Knowledge of the LAW understands these allegations ~ It's very likely that these two Russian Operatives are ONLY the First "Dominos to be TOPPLED" in this far-Reaching Criminal INVESTIGATION ~

      Soon, if we are still a nation of LAWs, which I'm still hopeful we are considering Federal Judges continue to "SMACK-Down" Trump's Ridiculously Unlawful "Travel BANs", Kushner, Trump Junior, Pence, Stone & even Mr. "Tricky Trump" himself will join them as "Co-Conspirators" among many other crimes perpetrated against the USA ~

      Manifort was Mr. Trump's Campaign Chairman, a Russian Operative who apparently neglected to inform the United States Government that he was acting in an "AGENCY Capacity" for Putin's satellite Ukraine, I wonder WHY? This guy was in charge of everything Trump, you can't possibly get any closer to Donald unless you're a child, in which case if you adhere to the law, they're in DEEP as well ~

      Well... where do I even begin. This is a very good list of all the reasons why Donald Trump is unfit to be President of the United States. Every day that goes by, George W. Bush looks great compared to this guy. You're right, we have had bad presidents before but Trump is as bad as it gets mainly because of his behavior towards women, minorities, and especially members of his own party. You deserve praise, congratulations and another follower! From the way things are looking, Trump may not even get to 2020 and he'll be recognized by most historians as a laughing stock. I am so glad I did not vote for this terrible man.

      Let's not "DIVERT" from the subject "Yes Dear" ~ To my knowledge, Mr. Trump is the ONLY Politician who is under "CRIMINAL Investigation" by Special Council & This Comprehensive Article Chronicles many FACTs which should inevitably lead to the DEMISE of Mr. Trump's Despicably Dangerous Pseudo-Presidency based upon EVIL Intent ~

      I believe everyone here and the Vast MAJORITY of Rational Patriotic Americans who Voted Against "Putin's Pathological Lying Puppet" Trump, would agree that if we are still a Nation of LAWs with a Valid Constitution, Donald and others will be INDICTED for a Virtual Myriad of CRIMEs including Obstruction of Justice, Abuse of Power, Witness Tampering & INTIMIDATION, Collusion, Conspiracy, Conflict of Interest & Constitutional VIOLATIONs, and perhaps even TREASON for publically Imploring Russian Operatives to Commit Espionage against the USA ~

      FACTs ~ A Primary Difference between Harvey Weinstein & Mr. Trump is that we already have at least one "SMOKING Cannon" from Trump, the Access Hollywood VIDEO Tape where he actually CONFESSEs on Camera to his Abominable ACTs against women ~ Another clear sign of Psychopathy ~

      If the action is allowed to move forward, this should be intsrumental in the "DEFAMATION" Law Suit filed against Donald ~ The Evidence in the "Weinstein SAGA" is at the beginning stages, no real "Smoking Gun" quite yet but certainly could be forthcoming ~

      "SYMPTOMs of Psychopathy": From my research, it looks like Ted Bundy suffered from just a few symptoms, but I think we can all agree based upon a 2 Year OBSERVATION of his Deranged, HATE Filled, Racist, Misogynistic, SELF-Absorbed, Self-Aggrandizing Paranoid, Erratically Unstable & Violence Laced Public Behavior, it's certainly no leap to assume Mr. Trump obviously Suffers from ALL 8 listed below ~ Just view the VIDEO Evidence in this & other comprehensive articles to form your opinion ~

      We can also ADD his "Violent Tendancies" to this list as well ~

      •Superficial charm and glibness.

      •Inflated sense of self-worth.

      •Constant need for stimulation.

      •Lying pathologically.

      •Conning others; being manipulative.

      •Lack of remorse or guilt.

      •Shallow emotions.

      •Callousness; lack of empathy.

      A Brief ADENDUM to Mike's Comment ~ There's actually a despute as to who wrote the "Art of the DEAL" ~ Tony Schwartz, co-author asserts that he wrote the book with minor contributions from Donald, and given Mr. Trump's HISTORY of Blatant Untruths, I think we can easily conclude who's the real author ~

      Regarding Mr. Trump's "Mental State" ~ I'd assume the Majority of "Reputable PSYCHIATRISTs" would conclude Donald suffers from SEVERE Mental ILLNESS ~For those interested, GOOGLE "Symptoms of Psychopathy" for a CHILLING Reality Check about Mr. Trump ~

      Next, imagine you were unaware of Ted Bundy's Murders, then watch a 10 minute interview with Ted Bundy, then a 10 minute interview with Mr. Trump then be HONEST with yourself, if someone told you one of these two individuals was a PSYCHOPATH, who would you think it was?? Pretty Sobering isn't it?? ~

      Thank you for this article. I love the organization. Every assertion is backed up with verifiable evidence.

      I think Trump must of had a traumatic childhood, although he would never allow himself to acknowledge that. He sees his whole world based on winners and losers. And he always sees himself as the winner and never the cause of him losing.

      His name calling and counter punching is a way he elevates himself above his opponents. He detests people that he thinks are losers. I believe there lurks a very insecure little boy inside of him somewhere.

      I'm sure he does not realize that one of the precepts of being a president in a democracy is compromise. He does not have the ability to compromise or to say he is wrong. He believes motivation is based on insulting and threatening people.

      He learned how to divide and conquer in military school. He was sent there by his parents because he was an unruly child. In his book, "The Art of the Deal", he says he likes to use "truthful hyperbole" when making statements. This allows him to exaggerate to the point of lying. But I'm sure in his mind, he believes everything that he says, including the lies.

      The more he divides this country, the weaker it becomes. I do have a fear that if he stays in office, we will become a very weak and not to be trusted country in the geopolitical world.

      Thanks again for your article.

      We can add the following to this GROWING "Work Product" ~ BOMBSHELL ~ According to Reports, Attorney's who represent the women who allege Mr. Trump Inappropriately Assaulted them, are now aggressively pursuing pertinent corroborating evidence via "SUBPOENAs" ~ Remember? This is the sizable group of women whom Mr. Trump claimed he was going to SUE for false accusations, and of course like so many of his Blatant LIEs, that NEVER happened ~ Now the Shoe is on the other foot ~

      Another Chapter in this "LIVING", "Extravagent, Complete & Conclusive" Searing INDICTMENT of Mr. Trump is our perceived image of his Apparent Psychopathy ~ If you GOOGLE "Symptoms of Psychopathy ', You might be Astonished to Discover the list virtually mirrors his "Erratic, Maniacally Deranged & Non-Empathetic Behavior ~

      Another home run for jeff61b!! Fantastic and true.

      Heres my hope:

      Next time, a woman runs again. Iran hacks into the republican campaign and releases info to public.

      While running, a tape of the woman emerges: "yeah, i tried to get him. I moved on him like a b*tch. He was married at the time, but fyyyne. But you know, powerful women like me can do anything. Grab em by the crotch...anything!"

      "Oh and btw, if someone doesnt like me, knock the crap out of em, will ya? Ill pay your legal fees"

      "Oh and also...a guy who gets a woman pregnant with an unwanted pregnancy must have a vasectomy"

      Wonder how far that woman would get? Think she'd be elected prez?

      I think she'd be run out of town....on a fast train. (not high speed like obama wanted unfortunately. Sorry barack...you wanted it, repubs said no chance in hell)

      Congratulations, what a FANTASTIC "Compilation & Summation" ~ This could actually be used by Prosecutors ~ The only slight amendment I'd make is in the Title ~ "Could Be" to "IS" ~ Other than that, simply Phenomenal ~

      Unfortunately for the world, your article is right on target, we have never experienced a more Incompetent, Dreadfully Un-Qualified & Gratuitously CORRUPT Mentally Unstable Politician in United States HISTORY, and odds are we'll never see this again ~ Pray to GOD ~

      EVIL has Engulfed Our White House & it looks like a Mighty Struggle will ensue to "EXORCISE & Evict" the Demons ~
