Here's Your One, All-Inclusive Trump Post For Sunday, December 18, 2016

A PUTIN FOR CHRISTMAS
Alec Baldwin did his Trump one last time on the final episode of SNL before the winter break. In this cold open, Putin makes a visit. John Goodman made a cameo too, and damn, he looks great.

FINDERS KEEPERS
Trump tweeted Saturday night that China should keep the Navy drone it stole from the US last week in the South China Sea. "We should tell China that we don’t want the drone they stole back—let them keep it!" The Washington Post

UNPRECEDENTED?
Merriam-Webster called out Trump after he made up a word in a tweet about China’s navy finding a US drone in the South China Sea. "China steals United States Navy research drone in international waters – rips it out of water and takes it to China in unpresidented act." Twitter will be his downfall. The Hill

HOW TRUMP BEATS THE MEDIA
This isn't about something Trump did as much as something Trump's doing. He's good at the art of throwing up smokescreens -- making a big loud ruckus with one hand while quietly making moves with the other. Here's how he does it. Here's how he does it. Robert Reich

BACK IN THE WOMB
College students who voted for Trump are now asking their schools for "safe spaces" where they can process why non-Trump student voters are upset about Trump being the president-elect. New York Times

MICK WILL KNOW WHAT TO DO
Trump named South Carolina congressman Mick Mulvaney (co-founder of the Freedom Caucus) his Director of the Office of Management and Budget. "Right now we are nearly $20 trillion in debt, but Mick [will] manage our nation's finances and save our country from drowning in red ink." NPR

Yes 10 million people have health insurance that cant afford it while the middle class struggle to make ends meet because there health care costs have gone up 3 fold, the non participation in the labor force is about 62% a 38 year low( that means 37% of the eligible work force is not working and it's estimated 2 thirds of this number just have quit looking for work), and the jobs that are available are low paying jobs, the crime rate has been going down steadily for 20 or 30 years has nothing to do with Obama. Crime rates are at a all time high in Long time Democratic controlled areas (and Yes his Chicago) , so yes I guess its better under Obama.

Yep Obama damage like eliminating Osama, insuring 10 million people have health insurance who couldn't afford it, help keep over all health care costs down, increase the number of jobs to a record high, reduce crime rate to a 45 year record low. help pull the economy out of the Bush depression... While the Trump has already alienated the US from the Philippines, NATO, China, Mexico, Our Mideast Allies, ...

-What the actual fuck are you talking about Ziggy? Did you miss my post how those claims of increased healthcare are bogus, at least according to... The Obama Administration! But what do they know about it, eh?
-Health care costs WHAT? Ok, you are in the Twilgiht Zone of stupidity now matey! I can't help you when you are that far gone...
-Hey, how's the murder rate in Chicago these days? A 25 year low? Fuck no...
-Number of jobs is high? maybe because the population is bigger, but the Rate Of Employment is terrible... look it up.

You can blame increase heathcare cost on your inept republicans in congress for, once again, NOT DOING THEIR JOBS, and not passing laws to hinder the egregious price fixing of drug manufactures. Hell, I take a diuretic and it has already quadruples in price. This is not because of supply/demand - THIS IS PURE CORPORATE GREED. Which Trump (your so called "people's party"/republicans) care little about. 

Just look at his cabinet! Rex Tillerson is going to get a buttload of kickbacks once Trump willfully removes the sanctions on Russia, and frees up their grasp on the world and also, drilling in the Arctic. But hey... Guess what? Those drills wont be just for oil, russia will use those outpost for surveillance and also to further their claim as the Acrtic as theirs. Just as china is trying doing in the South China Sea (i.e. SEA TRADE ROUTES.)

How can any person just willfully ignore russia's recent past actions (Crimea, Syria, Troll Factories, Cyberwarfare, Propaganda/Wikileaks) and just keep thinking everything is fine!? russia is playing a whole new game of real-world politicking and we're just willful following their lead; (soon) from the top down. 

But seriously people seem to making their minds up on whatever seems to follow their political agenda. Hell, I've had a few of you tell me President Obama is a war criminal for using precision drone strikes but then will gleefully, and cheerfully laugh as Trump goes on about killing the family members of terrorist groups and carpet bombing 1000's, if not millions, to "bomb the shit outta them."

- Of course you ignored my reply in your post and attacked a strawman...again. Let me reiterate. Your quoted story attacked the Obama Administration's use of inaccurate survey data used to estimate and then cited inaccurate Heritage Foundation data to estimate. Sure, OK, go with that. Then you criticize that most uninsured became insured through the Medicare expansion...which is part of Obamacare. Umm, what part of that is a lie?
- That I agree with. Healthcare costs are always on the rise, no matter what. Healthcare costs didn't rise as much under Obamacare as previous years, but they still rise.
- I didn't realize that Obama was the president of Chicago. Another strawman argument.
- Rate of employment is still terrible, but less people are unemployed. Republicans like to use the term "underemployment," but heck, everywhere in the world people are underemployed. Education doesn't mean what it used to. Unemployment rates are lower than they used to be. Underemployment rates are higher than they used to be...all over the world.

Hopefully the Trump will be  unpresidented  before he can do too much damage.
