Forums - Politics Discussion - Trump's First Solo Press Conference as President

I wouldn't expect a good thread from someone cursing god at the bottom of his thread

Trump is a smart man because he knows that much of the general public is ignorant. Know your enemy, as they say. He well aware that he has the biggest soapbox--or, as he put it, "the biggest microphone".

If someone says something he doesn't like, he can overrun them with bullshit and rhetoric. He can lie as much as he wants as long as he never admits the lie and as long as he keeps repeating it. All he has to do is run his talking point into the ground while attacking the credibility of anyone who disagrees and there will be a significant number of people who believe him.

It seems absolutely ridiculous but it works.

No one understand people better than a true demagogue. It's not about being right, it's about being able to convince the mob that you're right.

do not curse god. you will call for him when your sent to hell



Can someone please find a version with subtitles of it?
Can't afford to listen to it here, so I'm thinking about reading.

Anyone who does not agree with Trump is labelled as fake news. No one can tell Trump what to do because he has a huge bank account balance and owns lots of assets. He has served only a month as US President and he has fired plenty of his staffers and more firings are to follow.

So that's what this has evolved into? You're really going to just call people out for saying "god damn"?

Thanks anyway.
I guess I could go search for an article, but that would likely be biased to some way, so actually having it come from him, even if reading not listening, would be better.



"I inherited a mess." Such a cry baby. What Obama inherited was an actual mess. Didn't see him crying about it. I thought this guy was tough? He acts like a little b**** blaming and deflecting his issues on others.
