i would agree with you, however, a particular need must be warranted for such and such job to exist.  donald trump by being born has created jobs.  the public is beyond fascinated by him.  they need him

That's not how economics works.

I do wonder if some people watched The Americans and got confused about which side was which in real life.

Not really. He's just a dishonest asshole.

Rhetorical: Did'ja ever think the day would come when you'd long for a stupid, hayseed POTUS over a stupid, bat-shit crazy one?

Never.  Hard to believe it's come to this, ain't it?

I like the way the Trump Presidency is going.  He's flailing about, getting nothing accomplished but his base still thinks he is.  I think in the end he won't get all that much done with the wall or immigration or trade even.  At least no more than a mainstream GOP'er would.  But his base will blame it all on Congress, enabling Trump to keep being incompetent.

I'm somewhat surprised at the lack of trouble from Tillerson (so far).

Tillerson was one of the few Trump appointments I didn't have a problem with.  I don't mind the military guys either as at least they are stable and have some good qualities.  I just don't like that there are so many military guys because you need someone to counterbalance their viewpoints as well.

The whole thing is precariously balanced.  Trump could go off the deep end pretty easily.  It's not like I'm really happy about it.  I'm just saying if Trump just turns into a baby child tyrant who we throw in a corner and pretend he doesn't exist that is about the best outcome we can expect.  Imagine if he was actually good at getting things done.

I saw that too, and had a good laugh.  Fuck those Equifax and Wells Fargo shitheads.  But they can and will get away with it, so why should anybody be surprised.

Ha! yes indeed! I kept thinking the same thing when I heard the NPR story about it

It's only a matter of time when it all comes crashing down on this administration and on Trump. Counting the days...
