    So your problem with DT's statement is that since he didn't win the popular vote he wasn't chosen to take on China's unfair trade policies?

    Dude watch the clip. Watch him open his arms and note the inflection as he says, " I am the chosen one, somebody had to do it"
    It's creepy sh**.

    That was awesome when he said that.

    I love it when the left-wingers get their panties all twisted up over such mundane things.

    Well I'm no left-winger nor are my panties in a bunch but nice try trying to minimize your idol looking the crazy, narcissistic fool. I get it, tell yourself he was just "trolling", you'll sleep better.

    Trump: "Oh my God....."

    Leftwing spin: Trump thinks God belongs only to him!

    Leftie headline: Trump says God is "MY God"!

    Leftie blog: Anonymous source says Trump has believed for years that God was his God and only his God.

    Sane people: hand me a beer, this is about to get so stupid it will be funny

    The problems of international trade and their solutions are not necessarily aligned with international trade and international relations. Of course China is a major cancer which needs curing. I would of course be thrilled if the Chinese problem with trade and their expansionist moves to grab land and their infiltration into Africa was stopped. I do not trust Trump to do it no matter what he says. Trump believes that he can solve the China problem all by himself as if he was negotiating for land for another Trumpocity- e.g. Trump Tower.

    As I had pointed out many times before the cause of China eating our lunch is that American companies sold their business souls to the Chinese as if they were hungry Zombies wanting to gorge on cheap labor. Our government did not tell American companies to give intellectual property and technology away our companies gave it away for the promise of cheap labor and the hope for a market share.

    Trump has an ego the size of an outer space black hole. Instead of going at China with our allies he thinks he is Hercules and he can do it all himself. He crapped on all our allies and is trying to convince us that he is some Demi god that can do anything. Why do I not have any confidence in his business acumen? He has bankrupted companies so I do not want him to do the same for the US.

    As to that "chosen one " remark that is just another example of the over inflated ego of his thinking for him. His fans and sychophants claim that he means what he says and says what he means. Then they do an about face and say do not take what hev says for real.

    So basically his fans admitt that we should not trust him.

    And what is the relevance of these questions have to do with the lunacy of Crazy Donnie? It is amazing to read the machinations of the members of Crooked Donnie's cult in an unsuccessful attempt to justify the immorality and gross incompetence of Crazy Donnie.

    Only if you're a Trump hater. It came across pretty benign, him stating he felt thrust into this difficult role of dealing with China.

    A significant part of the China problem is the Chinese government's unfair trade practices and that is something that DT can address. Whether he can achieve any success remains to be seen. And I do believe he feels this is something he feels compelled to deal with, or as he phrased it "chosen."

    Libby has it right. He may not be charismatic, charming, or diplomatic, but he is no dummy.

    I would love it he can get things done but I have no confidence in an egotistical braggart based on his track record. I need to be convinced.

    No, only if you're objective and sane. Sure it was benign, but who talks like that? It was bizarre.

    And yet you can point to exactly nothing to support your opinion that he's a not drooling imbecile. Thanks.

    The idea of a smart person is that they would never say or do something that isn't logically inconsistent, but the reality is different. Basically...smart people aren't perfect and make mistakes also. Even so, that still leaves the idea that a smart person can intentionally say something logically inconsistent for whatever reason.

    Of course smart people make mistakes. They could be making decisions based on faulty or incomplete data but you will always be able to follow the logic in their actions.

    For me, when I decode it, Trump is saying "I am the one who will continue Western Civilization."

    And that is right on top of, "This country will never be socialist."

    I found Obama to be quite intelligent but I could often not follow the logic in his actions.

    He’s smart in that he knows how to manipulate a reaction from people. He knows how to push peoples buttons. He also knows how to get people to like him.
    You do remember Obama being referred to and worshiped in a rather freaky messiah-like way by the MSM and his voters? No? People fainting and crying around him at rallies? When he was elected, people fell to the ground in tears? Even kids singing his name in weird chants at school?

    I’ll ask again. You really think Trump referred to himself in a biblical way because he honestly believes he’s a biblical figure or was he simply making fun of the MSMs reference to Obama the wonderkin? The Uniter of the world!!! The man who would erase racism and receive a Nobel peace prize for uuuuummm, doing nothing at all for peace really:) The tingle up the leg man!!! If you though he was serious, that’s called TDS or you’re simply ****ing with people, hehe. I’ll take Occam’s Razor thank you very much.

    I did and the psychology behind it is basic. I have never seem him drool, but I'm sure he does from time to time. So do you. I am not a fan of Trump, but if we are to expect better, we need to be better. Your post is an unfortunate example of why Trump is an accurate reflection of Americans. Lack of willingness to have respectful discussions with those we disagree with is only outweighed by the willingness to take cheap shots. Your reply was very Trump-like.

    A fact that proves the wisdom of having a constitutional Republic instead of a direct democracy.

    So, you can't answer these simple questions but you can post stupid images. Just as I thought.
    • What degree do you have?
    • What company or companies do you own?
    • How many people have you employed?
    • How many jobs have you created?
    • Have you ever created products/services that other people could use?

    No. His statement shows that he is a narcissist. A pathetic, low intelligence narcissist.
