    Because Trump said so, so it must be true.

    Bit late, but hilarious watching the Trump supporter try to feign impartiality then immediately use the favourite skewed metric of Trump to measure his success!

    The funny thing overlooked here is that that speech was essentially the apology of a wrongdoer insisting they've reformed and pledging to do better.

    We can all approve of the speech but that approval only lasts until the first time he shows it was all just lip-service.

    I'm sure the MAGAbomber would still call that justified somehow.

    You've got to give him credit for that, he's playing up to his support who are even more stupid than he is, if that's possible.

    AOC is getting a lot of traction with young people, particularly disgruntled Democrats who felt ripped off that Bernie didn't get the nomination.

    Axios is calling her 'the Democrats' Trump', but I think she's more of a liability than an asset, and I expect the word 'socialist' to be over-used and misapplied even more than usual during next year's election.

    I never had any doubt that Trump would win a second term, but if I did, AOC would have killed it.

    Trump quoting news anchors this morning and then claiming that no president worked harder than him after Joe Scarborough claimed historians would record that no president worked less than Trump.

    You could follow news on Trump by just following his defensive statements. If he gives it any attention, there is a 99% chance it's true.

    Edit - **** it, peered on to his twitter and there are a number of things to address:

    Rasmussen is Trump's safety blanket. As soon as it reaches 50%, he can't help but bring it up. Very sad. Most other polls have him 10 points down, hence the average is in the low 40s with his disapproval hovering around the mid 50s.

    Two tweets an hour or two apart, not sure I need to add anything to this contrast.

    Farmer bankruptcies in some states are up significantly and tax returns (so far) are about 8% down year on year. Yet he still commands 40% of voters :rolleyes:.

    Lol how ironic that he is tweeting that he does more work.

    Get off twitter bragging and get some real work done!

    Amusingly, he's been defended over this by Brit Hume (a 'Sr. Political Analyst' at Fox News, for whatever the hell that's worth), who has basically said that Trump can't have been referring to the trail of tears because he's too ignorant:

    It's an interesting play, claiming your guy is too dumb to have made an insulting remark. I'll have to remember that one.

    It's the argument they will likely lean on when the Russia probe drops. And I call BS - Trump put way too much emphasis on it.

    It's a good argument but he seems to have forgotten about how much Trump loves Andrew Jackson.

    It's Hilarious because either way shows he is unfit to serve.

    He either intentionally made a joke about genocide to try and knock a political opponents, or he is so ignorant if American history, that he did it by accident.

    Brit Hume doubles down:

    So Trump is both racist and a complete moron, and doesn't generally hide it. Appreciate the clarification there Brit, you're doing the Lord's work :p
