Imagine President Trump

  • TommyTune

    Not that hard to imagine, but frightening nonetheless.

  • Can you imagine what the staff of the White House would be put through if he were to win?

    People who have worked years, maybe even decades, there in supporting roles to the chief executive of our nation. I would imagine any time there’s a change in president there’s some anxiety over learning how to please the new “boss,” but what would it be like if the new “boss” simply couldn’t be pleased and looked down on you and treated you like shit?

    • another_steve

      To be honest, I’m more concerned over the prospect of Trump redecorating the White House.

      Can you imagine? :-/

      • MattPS

        Lots of gold, lots of glass, and lots of cascades.

  • TexasBoy

    Fox News and the GOP, YOU are responsible for this….creating what you thought was a cute little rebellious Tea Party wing of the party that you thought you could pat on the head and control. Lap dogs sometimes bite.

  • Jack_Carter_USA

    I like to think Trump’s current quest to offend as many people as he can wouldn’t leave him with enough fans to win the election, but you never know.

    • Reality.Bites

      I haven’t noticed him saying much, if anything, to offend angry old white men who think everyone else are losers. Even when he goes after people like Megan Kelly and John McCain, well she’s an attractive, successful woman who’d never sleep with them, and he’s a rich guy who they resent.

      • Jack_Carter_USA

        Yes, but there simply aren’t enough angry old white men who think everyone else are losers to win an election. Even if you factor in the people who are too stupid to realize he’s trashing them to their faces, that’s just not enough votes to put him over 50%.

        • Reality.Bites

          Oh there’s not question he doesn’t have what it takes to win. But that’s already the case – Democrats and independents loath him, as do a huge number of Republicans. I just meant that his numbers aren’t going to decrease – he isn’t doing anything to offend those who support him.

          • Jack_Carter_USA

            Give him time. I’m sure he’ll get to them eventually. Remember that he’s not running an actual campaign, it’s an ego trip and publicity drive masquerading as a presidential bid, so he doesn’t care who he ticks off as long as he stays in the spotlight.

        • JustSayin’

          Depends on how many liberals vote, remember the dems owned the eat your own title fore decades.

  • Michael Rush

    This is not what John Lennon was thinking of

  • bkmn

    If you want to see what a tRump presidency would look like turn your eyes to Maine where the TP governor who slid into office through two elections with three candidates, who is facing impeachment for using state resources to harm a Dem leader and has pissed off both parties and recently thought he had pocket vetoed over 65 bills when they in fact went into law.

    • billbear1961

      Impeach the stupid, hateful bastard!

      Cast him OUT and into prison!

      • Gerry Fisher

        They’re working on it.

    • billbear1961

      Do you know who the lieutenant governor is, bkmn?

      • bkmn

        The google says Maine does not have an LG. If needed the President of the Senate would succeed him, he is a Republican but not as extreme as LePage.

        • billbear1961

          How very odd they don’t have an LG!

          I think for the presidency it’s, after the VP, the Speaker of the House and then the longest serving senator (not the “President” of the Senate–that’s the VP, who’s first in line, anyway).

          The president pro tempore of the Senate, the longest serving senator from the party currently in the majority.

          I looked it up!

          🙂

          • bkmn

            Maine is not a big state, population wise, so they decided to save money by not having an LG, I guess.

          • billbear1961

            An example of New England frugality?

          • GC

            All the more reason to ensure Rethuglicans don’t take the Senate!

  • Galvestonian

    WHEN REPUBLICANS ATTACK – see them eat their own, throw feces, fabricate, misrepresent and outright lie in an effort to bring down the TRUMPONSTER !!!

  • OrliJoe in Fla

    The sheer idiocy of it!!!!

    • TommyTune

      If only we had a place to beam up to if The Donald becomes President and Sarah Palin his Vice-president, especially since the entire world would be imperiled.

  • ColdCountry

    That statement the other day, complete with its two kinds of font, reminded me of a nasty 12-13 year old. These Trump supporters seem to have no idea that there are other cultures with powerful people who will not stand for his shit, and that yelling and name calling will not work in a global world.

    • Soren456

      With no snark whatever, I don’t think Trump has matured much beyond his 13th year.

      There’s no depth to him, no education, no empathy, no nuance, no sophistication, no broadening by experience.

      And no sense of self-worth; he’s all defense and blame.

      Looking backward, I’m glad that I’m not 13 anymore. And I doubt that Trump would understand that.

      • KCMC

        As a young boy Donald Trump was an energetic and assertive child and his
        worried parents sent him to the New York Military Academy at 13, hoping
        the school would channel his energy in a more positive manner. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4399c16606e9f725a1a51fa1a8cefb822e7fb21849d0aa3d5e397ad183ecb964.jpg

        • TampaDink

          Too bad that they did not opt for a mental institution instead of military school.

          • KCMC

            sometimes more similar than not.
            Although that senior(?) pic looks the cocky character uninhibited by nothing.

          • TampaDink

            I see a sneer lurking in the pose.

    • Cuberly

      It appears to work for Putin though. His anti-west rants are basically on the same level.

  • AtticusP

    Sigh…

  • billbear1961

    Thank you–I’d prefer NOT to imagine a Trump presidency or any GOP administration in 2017.

    I’m a pessimist, not a masochistic glutton for punishment!

        • Reality.Bites

          Well to be completely honest, I get feeds of cute animals. When there happens to be a polar bear I try to keep it around till the next time I see you online. This one was posted yesterday with the caption sassy polar bear.

  • i’m gonna risk my reputation as a crystal ball reader here, but i’m pretty sure there will never be a President tRump.

    for one thing, the man is a Quitter, just like Palin. he’s good at blaming other people for his mistakes, and acting like a clown on a stage.

    he’s also the biggest self inflated ego in the world right now, other than Putin. work? meet with world leaders regularly? spend 16hrs a day on the job? give me a break. he’s never had to work hard in his life, except when he has to beg banks or the state to bail him out.

    he’s a media darling… today. but the media is a fickle mistress. the minute ratings start to slack off on the media’s ‘all tRupm, all the time’ show? yeah, they will turn on him. he won’t like it, he’ll throw a temper tantrum, and he’ll quit.

    we’ve got more than a year of this crap to go, people. tRump is just the first princess on display. i guess the media and the powers that be have decided Carli! is going to get her turn next.

    i give tRump one, maybe three months more in the spotlight and then he’ll be tired of it and starts searching for his Next Wife.

    • clay

      I agree; I think he’ll be out before Iowa. The question for me is if he’ll try (and fail) to get back in.

      • Cuberly

        I don’t know. I agree he’ll be jettisoned from the GOP at some point.

        We are talking spin doctor Trump here. I can totally see him spinning his departure as a win since apparently he was solely responsible in instigating a “conversation” on immigration. (Eyeroll)

        I think there is a chance for a third party defection though.

        • BudClark

          He’s got the money; he doesn’t have the wit to build a third party from scratch.

          • flakingnapstich

            He’s got the money, but most of it is bound up in assets. That’s one reason there’s so much variation in the estimates of his net worth. Most folks estimate the likely sale value of his assets. tRump estimates how much he THINKS he can sell it for.

            He may be able to outspend the GOP, but he’d have to sell tRump Tower to do it, assuming he can find a buyer and liquidate the funds in time to make a difference.

    • bkmn

      This whole thing is about building his brand just like for Fuckaflea it is about building an email list to scam money out of the base later.

    • Gerry Fisher

      I agree with you. tRump’s not up for it.

      • Reality.Bites

        Why? It didn’t for Dubya.

      “we’ve got more than a year of this crap to go, people.”

      I am going to lose my mind!

      We’ve got an election campaign going on in Canada till 19 October.

      Then, after that, 13 more months of agony over the U.S.

  • SockMikey
  • Glen Power

    The thought is rather frightening, but whomever wrote this, needed to date it for 2017 or higher, not 2015.

    I personally do not think he has a clue on how the world works! The nuances of different cultures, religions, languages, the list is extensive!

    I think he has had his “YES MEN” around him for so long, he has no connection to any type of reality, giving the fact that he is a trust fund baby. He has never had to ‘make do’ his entire life, so he has no connection with the average working person that is trying to feed, cloth, house a family on a paycheck.

    For him to be elected (read – purchased) to any government position would the worst mistake any state or country could make!

    • another_steve

      Trump comes from a line of scumbags.

      New Yorkers of a certain age may recall his father’s (Fred Trump’s) role in the wanton destruction of the fabulous Steeplechase Park in Coney Island.

      “The following year, Fred Trump — father of The Donald — bought the property from the Tilyou family, and hoped to convert it to waterfront housing. To preempt the city from declaring the park a protected landmark, Trump held a party with his wealthy friends, where they threw bricks through the towering, glass Funny Face’s bared teeth.

      “It’s so symbolic that that’s what he attacked,” Denson said. “That’s how powerful it was. He thought if he destroyed that, he would get his way with the city.””

    • Soren456

      I agree.

      I thought at first that he was playing a role that he had written for himself. But I was wrong.

      In fact, what we see not only IS Trump, but worse, is ALL there is to see of him.

      There is no depth, no education, no empathy, no nuance. Nothing is hidden, and nothing is there to hide.

      I always thought that he needed advisors who weren’t afraid of him. But I realize now that he can’t be advised.

      • TampaDink

        He is exactly what you’ve stated.
        Gertrude Stein said something similar about Oakland, CA where she was raised.
        “There is no there there.”

  • JustSayin’

    That is too politically correct to satire tRump behavior

  • I think you underestimate the Donald. He is going to appoint Sarah Palin to a cabinet position (he SAID so) and we all know that she will be a PERFECT Secretary of State. And with Sarah running foreign policy what problems could possibly be had with foreign relations?

    • RoFaWh

      I can just see Palin as Secretary of State greeting an eminence from Georgia and asking some flunky “What’s that gobbledly-gook he’s speaking?” while the professional diplomats cover their heads in shame.

      She is most likely unaware that there is Georgia, the peach state, and Georgia, the Caucasian republic.

      • ColdCountry

        Now stop with the “gotcha” stuff!

      • TampaDink

        If (FSM forbid!) $arah Paylin became Sec. of State at least she’d finally have a chance to fuck Putin, it is obvious from all that she’s said about him that he makes her wet.

    • LovesIrony

      just tell her she’s sectary of English and let her loose.

  • Cuberly

    The GOP/Fox machine not only created the monster they’ve cultivated it for years. Trump was to John McCain/Sunday show levels of repeat appearances.on almost all their shows. They heaped gobs of attention on him in the early stages of his campaign.

    • SilasMarner

  • skeptical_inquirer

    After Trump’s campaign crashes & burns, I really would like him to become persona non grata for any and all commercial ventures and any and all politicians. He might even lose TP support if/when he pulls a Palin so I’d like to see this burn him somehow.

    • Soren456

      He already is persona non grata to much of the business world. For a long while now, he has found it increasingly difficult to create the partnerships and make business deals necessary actually to succeed.

      He already is a pariah. He is essentially on his own, and it isn’t working out for him.

  • Silver Badger

    Looking at the list of contenders, Trump may be the best the Republicans have to offer. How sad.
